Five (really random) Facts About Me On A Friday

1) I don't like to have my face touched. Ever. Even during a massage I ask the masseuse to skip my face completely.

And facials, eww!

2) I love bubblegum. Not all gum, just bubblegum...big, sticky, sweet wads of it. When I was little I used to save the chewed hunks by my bed at night and resume chewing in the morning. I know...gross.

3) I have a weird mascara fetish. I have tried probably hundreds of brands (from the super spendy to the ones on the cheap), and hate almost all of them. My old one was discontinued so I stocked up on eBay until those bottles (even though they were unopened) were just...too old.

My current fave: L'Oreal Voluminous. Go figure.

4) I can't touch my toes. Not even close.

5) I love it when people fall. Or run into things. I'm not sure why this is, I'm probably some kind of simpleton...or I was a Keystone Cop in a past life.

Case in point, my two favorite commercials of all time: the ad for Microsoft's SYNC (in which the woman walks into the door and spills her coffee all over) and the ad for Computer Associates (you've seen it, it's hilarious!).

UPDATE: I totally put the wrong L'Oreal mascara in the original post, so I had to correct it. I did NOT like Lash Architect. My favorite (at the moment) is Voluminous. OOPS!

I know what you mean about not liking to have your face touched. I'm the same way. I can't touch my toes either. lol. Cool post!


Shelli said...

I love when people trip and fall - tripping, flapping, flailing and falling are some funny stuff. Unless of course it is me.

PS how do you wash your feet if you dont touch your toes?

all good to know before LA :)

Kimberly Derting said...

Ahaha, Shelli, fortunately my knees bend! And I don't like it when *I* fall either. Only others. Then the hilarity ensues!

Reverie said...

AHAHAHAH I am so with you on the whole running into things. I had a friend ones (and we still talk about this to this day) where at a party at the house RAN full force into the patio door. I mean FULL FORCE RUNNING!!!!! And I saw it all, heard the loud bang. poor thing. HIGH LARIOUS tho!

and yeah mascara... eeek i barely use ti anymore i hate when it crumbles.

Kimberly Derting said...

OMG, Rev, it cracked me up just to *read* about your friend. I had a friend in highschool who refused to admit she ran into one of those dressing screens, even though she was the only one in the room, we heard the crash, and she had blood dripping down her forehead. (she'd also had a *little* to drink). HAHA!

And me, I HATE clumps...yuck!

Solvang Sherrie said...

We like to watch the Human Tetris tv show from Japan on YouTube. I think the fact that we can't understand a word they're saying makes it even funnier!

Kimberly Derting said...

Sherrie - I'll have to check that one out. We like to watch Wipeout with the's ridiculous but cracks me up!

Christy Raedeke said...

Wow, you are weirder than I ever imagined, and I LIKE it!

I had never seen that Computer Associates ad – that’s hilarious!

Shalonda said...

What a fun post!

How on earth did you resume chewing gum from the night before? Wasn't it hard???

You would get a kick out of me because not only can I not touch my toes either, but I am always running into stuff. I am so clumsy! Falling down stairs, running into objects, tripping over my own feet, that's me!

Kimberly Derting said...

Oh Shalonda, I would LOVE hanging out with you then!!! :)

Christy - I think there must be some writing by-law that states: You Must Be This Weird To Ride

PJ Hoover said...

Really fun and interesting things!

Ah, I'd love a massage. Someday soon.

Kimberly Derting said...

PJ - I like how the post makes it sound like I have them all the time! HA!!

Lisa and Laura said...

Oh my gosh, I love mascara and I always end up buying some new brand and hating it. The best mascara I've ever had was Dior, but they stopped making it and it was like $35 a bottle which is a little ridiculous anyways. I just bought lash stiletto or something like that and it's awful. Very clumpy. I'm totally buying Voluminous next time I'm at Target.

Lisa and Laura said...

This was such a fun post. I think you need to do this every week.

Little Ms J said...

Ok, I fall all the time. My girlfriends favorite time is when I tripped on a straw (some guy threw it out of his Goose and soda) at a PF Changs and landed on my butt by the bar. I could hear them laughing from my stall in the bathroom.

Stay away from Smashbox mascara. It's crap. You'll end up with two lashes on each eye. Not because they fall out, but because the clump together and smudge.

By the way, I just sent you something to your email. Please let me know if it came through!

Kimberly Derting said...

LiLa - Not sure there are *that* many weird and random things about me. On second thought, maybe there are...

MissJ - I would've been right there with your friends, laughing so hard that there would be no actual sound coming out. LOVE IT!

And thanks for the mascara tip...haven't tried Smashbox yet, and now I don't have to waste my money!

PC - Just got it...THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
