Hello, My Name is Natalie and I…

Also known as The Post About Random Things You Probably Should Know About Me if You Want to Know the Person I am in Real Life (inspired by Sarah):

  1. I hate frogs.  I hate them with a passion of one thousand suns.  If they get within five feet of me I will start crying and hyperventilating.  It’s v. sexy.
  2. I really wish flannel pajama pants were the height of fashion.  I would wear them every single day and not complain.
  3. If I had to pick one food to live on for the rest of my life it would be the potato.  Sure, you could blame it on my poor Irish potato farmer heritage, but think of all the things you can do with a potato.  At risk of sounding like Bubba, you’ve got baked potatoes, potato chips, french fries, perogies, potato candy, tater tots….
  4. I watch movies over and over and over again.  This is so bad that it’s driven every single person I’ve ever lived with insane.  I watched Musics and Lyrics *eight* times in one weekend–and it’s not even that good!  C. says it’s because I like to over analyze and remember each minute detail of everything in my life, I just think I like the background noise.
  5. There are several jobs I think I would be stellar at (like, Employee of the Year stellar): old house restorer (and getting paid for it for once), librarian, baker/canner, and hair stylist.  One day, after I win Mega Millions, I’m going to be all four.
  6. I hate to fold laundry.  And clean bathrooms.  And sweep floors.  And dust.  And wash dishes.  And pick up my mess.  All in all I’m a complete slob naturally (see #2).  But I do all those things to make C. happy and anyone else who visits Old Southern House so they won’t catch the bird flu or something from me and my nastiness.
  7. So, after nearly three years of marriage, we’ve started trying to procreate.  Hopefully, this will be a benefit to the world, as oppose to some of the people I have encountered recently who definitely should NOT have reproduced.  I have the names of up to six future C. babies (hello, sextuplets are a possiblity…though not a likely possibility I admit) picked out and ready to go.

    HA I am a total slob too. A closeted one though since 1) Adam is a neat freak and 2) we have people over a lot and my good hostess instinct overcomes my slobbiness but still. If I lived alone and had no friends, I would probably live in filth.

    […] I know in real life.  For instance: you get to see inside my medicine cabinet, you know I am a naturally p.j.-wearing slob, and a bad puppy mom, just to name a […]
