some randomness for your wednesday.

Giddy up. More random facts about moi.
I hate talking on the phone.
I've never liked it. I don't know what it is about it that I hate so much I just know I can't do it. And funny enough, I'm in a career where I do quite a bit of it. And I really don't mind it all that much at work but at home, it's the last thing I want to do. Even with my bestest of friends... I struggle. I have found a nice alternative - Skype. I can skype much better than I can talk on the phone. Hooray for technology.

I don't sweat. No really, I don't. It's odd really. I do get bright red in the face when I run. But sweat, notsomuch. It's a good thing I suppose.
Well, wait. My nose will bead up on occasion. That's annoying. But hell, it could be way worse.

I've been meaning to ask this:
What in God's name is Farmville???
I've seen more than a few grown adults with minute by minute FB updates regarding saving a cat or herding some cattle. Is this is the SIMS of the Facebook generation? Can you really multitask well enough at work that you can play (I assume you play?) Farmville and complete your work? Because there sure are a lot of 9-5'ers that are building a Maison in Farmville. :)
Someone, anyone... please explain.

And finally..... HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY!! Drink some green beer & celebrate! xoxo

I hate talking on the phone too! My reason is awkward silences. I hate having to fill the silence with lame ass small talk and nonsense. Waste of my time really. Ha!

And farmville, don't get. Don't want to get it. And would love if it never showed up on my FB again.

Btw is glistening similar to sparkling? If so, very cool. Happy green day!

I hate talking on the phone. The only people I ever talk to on the phone are my fiance and my mother. Everyone else I text or email.

I don't get Farmville either.

Happy St. Patty's! I too hate talking on the phone, I would much rather text. And Farmville, ugh don't even get me started, I can't stand seeing those updates on my news feed!

I HATE the phone. Hate it. And now I feel better knowing you do too so I don't feel quite so guilty about not calling more often ;) Never skyped, but I do text like a mad woman.

Sweat- Oh how I wish I didn't. Ugh.

Farmville- Yeah... I am obsessed. Out of control. I should join a group or something...

Happy St. Paddy's Day! So glad your shirt made it on time!!

Phone - doesn't bother me
Farmville - can take a hike! I hid it from my feeds and EVER receiving notifications again, it changed my mood dramatically.
Sweat - I really don't either. Except for sometimes in my sleep which really ticks me off. I attribute it to this memory foam mattress we have that I love, but I don't love that you have to have a "water" resistant mattress pad, or else any water/sweat/drool will break down the foam. That thing is a HEAT trap! Happy St. Patty's!!

I hate talking on the phone too, I use my hands too much to explain things! And I totally don't sweat either! My friends hate it, because they are always dripping with sweat in this horrible South Texas heat and I'm well not!

- i like talking on the phone but not with the actual phone. thank God for bluetooth.

- i don't have a CLUE what farmville is. i always wondered.

- my little sister doesn't sweat either and her face gets bright red. she actually has a pituitary gland problem, though, where her body can't cool itself down properly. and her name is morgan, too. but she's 11. i'm pretty sure you're not 11.

I hate the phone too, mostly because I don't like surprises. I screen all my calls at home and at work. My boss hates it. I couldn't care less.

I know EXACTLY what you mean about the phone. I don't use it. I hate it. I'd rather drive an hour out of my way to see someone in person than spend 5 min. on the phone. My theory is that I'm a completely visual person and aural communication is the hardest form of communicating for me.

Also, I've never in my life heard of Farmville. ...but I also have never been on facebook, so... yup, that's right, no phone, no facebook. Why yes, my house is shaped like a giant rock! :)

I hate talking on the phone also...I would much rather email even if it's the longest email you've ever seen. Lol! I used to love talking on the phone growing up but now I can definitely live without it! Hope you have a great Wed!

I'm with you on the phone thing. I work with my mom all day long and then she'll call me when I get home and the last thing I want to do is talk!!! To make it worse, sometimes when friends call, I just can't do it, so I'll just not answer and call back when I have more time to talk. Okay, now that I've revealed what a bad person I am...

I haven't fallen into the Farmville black hole. One of my friends actually lives in a town called Farmville and when he came to visit, he had to borrow our computer so he could "harvest his crops". The sad thing is, he's as far from a nerd as they get - I just don't understand!!
