One Of These Things Is Not Like The Others

Many of you may remember this blog from last October that visually displayed my affinity for dirty chubby bearded men. Lately I've been filled with conflicting feelings regarding my "type," all brought on by a rainy Saturday night screening of "There Will Be Blood." Here's what I'm talking about:


Paul Dano is the polar opposite of everything I'm into in a guy. He's at least 100 pounds lighter than me (not exaggerating). He's pasty and hairless with an alarming screech that can only be replicated by little girls between the ages of 3 and 8. His face is too pointy and he has a terrible haircut reminiscent of Leif Garrett circa 1978. In spite of all of this, I have not been able to get this man out of my head since I first saw him in the Lifetime original movie "Too Young To Be A Dad." "Little Miss Sunshine" and "Fast Food Nation" did nothing to curb my growing interest, and "There Will Be Blood" sent me completely over the edge. No one plays crazy quite like our Pauly.

Why am I blogging about this? Because I'm hoping that you, readers, can help me figure out what's going on in my brain. What is it about Paul Dano that gets to me? Help me help myself on this one friends.

I'm It

Ducky tagged me to write some shit about myself or my brother will die in a car crash and his girlfriend will commit suicide and blah blah blah you know the deal. Just to preface, I have literally spend about two days trying to figure out stuff about myself to tell you guys that you wouldn't already know. Let's begin.

1. I eat most sandwich items upside-down. I don't know when I started doing it but I think all the yummy flavors that you put on the top piece of bread (ie: mustard) hit your tongue first when you eat it upside-down. I only just recently noticed this about myself but I think it's pretty unique.

2. I blog inside my head all the time. Whenever I encounter some kind of weird circumstance or see some funny character on the street I immediately blog it in my head and think about how I would describe it to other people.

3. Much like my good friend Genevieve, I LOVE Harry Potter. This is not a surprise to anyone who knows me, but you may be alarmed at the extent of my obsession. I just finished re-reading the series and I was genuinely depressed for a week. This morning I was daydreaming about if I were married to Matt Damon and hoping that our babies would look just like their dad but with their mother's eyes...Just like Harry Potter. I don't know how else I can explain and try to make you understand, but the bottom line is I have a problem.

4. I have major road rage issues, but I think it ends up working out for the best. You all may have seen me get frustrated with people before while driving, but when I am alone in the car there is no stopping the hatred from spilling out of my mouth. If you heard the things I say you would be appalled. However, if I didn't have these opportunities to bitch people out in a controlled environment, I would probably be much less enjoyable to be around.

5. I LOVE two-toed sloths. They are so adorable and cuddly-looking. I think it would be an ideal pet for me because we could just snuggle while watching TV. I would also consider a three-toed sloth or slow loris.

6. I did a shout-out on TRL (Total Request Live, if you're out of the loop) when I was in New York the summer before my senior year of high school. I came on in one of the little boxes during a Yellowcard video and said hi to my sister, Sarah Balch, and Laura Scruggs.

7. If we are chatting on the phone, chances are I am not paying attention to you. I try to stay focused but I just end up tuning everyone out after a few minutes. If you need to get a hold of me, try texting.

8. I know a lot of really really random facts. The platypus is one of the only mammals that lays eggs. The main ingredient in hair mousse is alcohol. Margarine is one molecule away from plastic. Donatello is the purple Ninja Turtle and his main weapon is a staff. This is why I'm really good at Jeopardy.

9. I think that these things are some of the funniest stuff I have ever seen:
funny pictures
moar funny pictures
Funny Pictures

lolcats - Brokbak Kitteh  wishes he cud kwit u.
moar funny pictures
I spent an hour and a half looking at them last night.

10. I think unpainted nails are disgusting. My toes are ALWAYS painted a color, usually pink or red, and my fingers are always painted clear. Toenails are just the nastiest thing in the world and if you don't paint yours I don't want to see them. This is also the theory behind my "Boys should not wear sandals" rationale.

I'm only tagging Cassady and AnnE because everyone else has already done it. This took a really long time, so I hope you all enjoyed it.
