fun facts friday… version 4.0

September 9, 2011

  1. As you might already know, my sister is very pregnant. She is due next Friday on 9/16/11. However, she is adamant about having that child on 9/10/11 for a specific reason. She got married on 6/7/08, and thinks it will be fun to have a baby (well, as fun as it can be) on 9/10/11. She’s got a little over 24 hours to pop that little girl out. Good luck with that one.
  2. I say “umm” way too much – and apparently don’t know how to look at a camera.
  3. Last night I got an intense craving for sushi, and I figured that since everywhere I look lately, someone has been eating sushi, I’m eating it tonight. In my car. When I pick my sister’s mother in law up from the airport. I’m classy like that.
  4. The thought about getting up later than 5:00 AM tomorrow morning is making my heart sing with joy. I won’t even get mad if I wake up at 5:30 tomorrow – wait, I take that back. Yes, I will.
  5. I want to eat these. And this. And some of this. Please and thank you. If you make something for me, I am absolutely certain that we can hang out, paint each other’s nails, and I’ll let you pick out a movie for us to watch. I’m big on Friday nights at home.
  6. Towards the end of the week, my brain is like mush. In fact, if I start to tell my students something on like Monday or Tuesday and my mind is so zonked that I can’t even formulate a correct sentence, they all know it will be a long week listening to me (try to) talk. Usually on Fridays I’ll have an excuse because well, it’s Friday – and no, my students do not sing that song. They actually aren’t allowed to sing that song. Per my request.
  7. I have this chipmunk that lives in my yard, and he is definitely overstaying his welcome. He has eaten all of my ripened tomatoes thus far, and Alvin is not on my good side. Charlie sure isn’t doing his job of scaring this little guy away either. Stupid chipmunk – I want my tomatoes.
  8. I’m writing this post on WordPress which is totally not fun, hence no pitures. Live Writer all the way.

I’m going to have to check out Live Writer. I use Wordpress sometimes to blog from my ipad, and I hate nothing fun — no pics, no fun fonts, etc.

I really really wanted to have my son on September 2 last year, so his birthday would have been 09/02/10 (90210). Alas, that little monster was born at 11:45 PM on 09/01/10, FIFTEEN minutes too early!

wow #1 is cray-zee


Lauren September 9, 2011 at 4:44 pm

Live Writer or bust! Seriously, I would never go back to writing on Wordpress. Also I love this post because I did a Friday Fun Facts post today too! Maybe we really do have the same uncle and are related and thus think alike?!

I hated livewriter when I tried to interface it with my Mac. It’s made for windows-based machines I have learned. Anyone who says it’s easy to run it on a Mac needs to come over and show me how! Can you believe I upload all my pics just using the regular WP platform? I’m old school that way :)

Guess I should check out livewriter! Oh the Friday mush brian! ….I have it too!!!! I just want to sit and not think for a few minutes when Friday rolls around.
Happy weekend and I’m hoping all goes well for your sister!!!!

Oh my gosh! All those recipes look sooo good! Haha I have a squirrel problem in my backyard, those little guys are eating alll my tomatoes too…..


Lara @ TresLaLa September 9, 2011 at 5:12 pm

Hmm, need to check out Live Writer… I didn’t even know I was doing it wrong! Ha! I’ll be sharing a few secrets on my next post – well, not so much secrets as ramblings, but still…


Simply Life September 9, 2011 at 6:08 pm

oooh so exciting for your sister!


Dorry September 9, 2011 at 6:23 pm

I love posts like these! And I don’t know what I’d do without Live Writer…

Happy weekend to you!


Christina @ The Athletarian September 9, 2011 at 6:24 pm

Go eat your sushi, girl! Enjoy every single bite :)


Amanda @ .running with spoons. September 9, 2011 at 6:32 pm

That’s so cool about your sister and the dates. I’d be hoping for a 9/10/11 due date too :D

And apparently I need to get with the times, because I’ve just been using WP to write my posts… is there something I should know? :shock:


Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) September 9, 2011 at 6:43 pm

YES Amanda!! Download Windows Live Writer NOW and it will save your life!! Ok, small exaggeration but seriously I can’t do without it now!! I TOTALLY sympathise Chelsey!! I hate how long it takes for the photos to upload onto WP normally! Blogging took like 10x longer! :P


Lindsay@ In Sweetness and In Health September 9, 2011 at 7:04 pm

I get the Friday brain being in grad school! And I’m sad I can’t have livewriter on my mac..booo.


Gina @ Running to the Kitchen September 9, 2011 at 8:12 pm

Oh but 9/16 is a such a good date, my anniversary! :) haha Hope your sis gets her wish but she better get going!


Kaitlyn@TheTieDyeFiles September 9, 2011 at 8:28 pm

I will gladly make you any of those things as long as you share. Right now I’m eating oatmeal and reading blogs. Clearly I’m down with Friday nights in.


Leila @ Spinach and Skittles September 9, 2011 at 9:29 pm

My sister-in-law is due the same day :) a 9/10/11 baby would be awesome!


Meg September 10, 2011 at 12:28 am

I LOVE LIVE WRITER :) It makes blogging so much better :) Cute fun facts <3 loved it!


Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers September 10, 2011 at 8:20 am

Live Writer is that much better? I always do mine on Wordpress. It takes a while…. sigh…


sara @ the foodie diaries September 10, 2011 at 10:04 am

I’ve always written my posts on WordPress and just uploaded pictures the old fashioned way. Now I have a Mac and I don’t have a choice! You have to let us know if your sister goes into labor today, that’s so cool about her wedding date :)


cleaneatingchelsey September 10, 2011 at 10:07 am

It’s not looking likely – she thinks she might be induced next Thursday, the 15th!


christina September 11, 2011 at 10:01 pm
