Oh hi, how ya derrin? Yes, it's really me, back from an impromptu four day (blogging) weekend. Although I wish it could have been a real four day weekend. I actually wish all weekends were four days. That would make for a much more enjoyable work week. I really don't even know why I'm talking about a "work week" and "weekend." I'm a nurse and those don't exist anymore.
Since it's been quite some time since I've written a good ole "random shit you probably don't need to know but I'm going to tell you anyway" type of post, I figured I'd grace your minds with some facts. About myself.
Obligatory random picture that has nothing to do with anything. But you can read about Honduras here and here.
Fact number one.
I hate socks. I hate wearing them, I hate folding them, I hate it when I lose one and then one is missing a mate. I especially hate it when other people are wearing socks and they put their feet anywhere near me. Ugh it gives me heebie jeebies.
Fact number two.
I don't like the color pink. Yes, I'm a girl with all her working parts. Except the part that likes pink things. And chocolate, I don't like that either.
Fact number three.
I carry a gun. I'm sure you may think I'm a walking, talking cliche because I do live in Alabama and all of that, but you'd be surprised at how many people are surprised that I'm packing. No, I don't carry it at all times. Yes, I have a permit. No, I've never shot a human. Yes, I will protect you when the inevitable "zombie apocalypse" happens.
Fact number four.
The best piece of advice I've gotten (and probably will ever get) is "suck it up." Plain and simple. I try to live by it most days and remember that things aren't always going to go my way and there really isn't a point to sit and pout about it.
Fact number five.
I like to get banana peppers on my subway sandwich (or any sandwich) but I always end up picking them off because I like the flavor but not the texture on my sandwich.
Fact number six.
I signed up this weekend for another triathlon (you may remember that I was supposed to participate in one last year, until I broke my arm). This really isn't a "fact about me" but I'm using it as an excuse because I just wanted to talk about how PUMPED I am to be training again. Today was my first unofficial training day, but I plan on starting for real next week, I'm making a schedule and everything. And I will be blogging about it. I'm expecting you to hold me accountable.
So what have you learned about me? I'm a gun-totin' redneck that doesn't like pink and is crazy enough to try and compete in a triathlon. I hope you'll stick around.
