If We're Gonna Be Friends...

{inspired by Jocee, who posted a post like this on her blog}

...you should know that...

-I almost always walk up stairs on my tiptoes. I don't know why; it's just natural.
-I have at least one tuna sandwich a week.
-I'm a big-time procrastinator.
-When I ask someone a question and they answer with a funny answer or a joke, I say, "I mean really."
-I smile when I draw smiling people. I don't always realize I'm doing it, either. I'm just trying to imagine what I want the smile to look like.
-When I hear a song with outstanding vocals, I just bask in it for a minute. It's, like, ear candy.
-I don't hold my pencils and pens "correctly." I rest them on my ring finger instead of my middle finger.
-I feel like when I swim I can "escape the world." Under the water, you can't hear all the noises that are above the water.
-I don't think stupid or corny jokes are funny.
-I can think of a song for a lot of situations. Oftentimes, I start singing it, too :-).
-I know a lot of movie quotes - mostly from Disney movies.
-When I was a kid, I was afraid of automatic toilets.
-I don't like sharks. They scare me.
-I loved the Tigger Movie when I was young. Talking about it makes me want to watch it.
-I was obsessed with Webkinz for a little while. I've got 29, the latest one being a midnight monster named Sully, Jr.
-I was also obsessed with Tinker Bell. I still really like her (though I no longer claim to be "the biggest Tinker Bell fan in the world.")
-I love big, sparkly dresses. I would totally love to get a full makeover - hair, clothes, makeup.
-I'm not like most of my friends. I usually have opposing opinions, interests, and likes to my friends.
-I'm tired of almost every secular song being about "love," "romance," and "sex." C'mon, people.
-I taught myself how to use my vibrato by shaking my head up and down when I sang (it worked).
-I can't wait for NaNoWriMo 2012 to get going.
-I usually keep my feelings to myself. I'm not one to cry a lot. Sure, I'll tell you if I'm ticked at you (most of the time), but I'm not overly emotional.
-I'd say I'm 60% introvert, and 40% extrovert, if that's possible...

This was such a neat post! :)
I don't hold my pens correctly, either. I have no idea how I got into that habit...

Nice post! Very interesting list of things about yourself! :)

Awesomest. Post. Ever! Seriously though, this was awesome :)
I may just do a post like this....
Oh, and by the way, I may just use your method of vabrato to teach myself. Me, my mom, and sister usually sing in church, and I am the only one of them who can't :)

LOL! I didn't know I was holding it "wrong" until recently, but it's just so much more comfortable.

Thanks! Oh, and the vibrato thing...it works! At least, it worked for me. I did the shaking-head-up-&-down thing until I got used to it and figured out how to just do it without shaking. Your throat can't be tight- it has to be open. Does that make sense? Like, relax your throat.

Hope that helps!
