I Think We Should Be Friends

So the other day I was browsing through some of my old posts, hoping for some fresh inspiration to pop out and hit me in the nose, and I noticed something. I've never really written an introductory post. You know, like a 'Hi, I'm Olaf and I like warm hugs' type of post....nope, never written one of those. 

Which really is horrible because my About Me page isn't all that amazing either (I'm working on revamping it these next few days). So since I have a ton of new followers and a lot of old friends visiting this little bloggity blog, I figured it was about time to tell you all a little bit more about moi. 


Random Fact #1: I am insanely creeped out by bugs....any bugs....except butterflies. Ya know that scene from The Chamber of Secrets when Harry and Ron are following the spiders to their lair and Ron whimpers "Why couldn't it be follow the butterflies"? That's me....definitely me. 

Random Fact #2: It's a fact that I love Disney movies more than probably any 20-something-year old person should.  That being said Snow White and Sleeping Beauty scare me half to death. I think it has something to do with the whole poison apple, heart in a box, wicked queen, sleeping forever thing. 

Random Fact #3: I actually go by my middle name here on the bloggy blog but my first name Chantal is French for 'singer of songs'. It's also my mom's middle name and my great aunt's middle name---I've often asked my parents why they didn't give it to me as a middle name. Followed closely by 'how can I legally change it to my middle name'. 

Random Fact #4: Within the last 5 years, I've lived in five different states: Florida, New Hampshire, Montana, Wisconsin, and Hawaii. Hawaii is the only one I've lived in for more than eight months. All except Montana I lived in for less than 6 months.

Random Fact #5: I'm allergic to cats. 

Random Fact #6: I'm not one of those people who can pull off skinny jeans....this could be due to the fact that I'm 5"1' or because I'm 5"1' and curvy--I'm not sure which. 

Random Fact #7: I hate with a capital H-A-T-E writing 'about me' sections. Or talking myself up in general actually. On my very first job interview when I was 15 the manager asked me to tell her something random about myself. My mind drew a blank and I babbled something about having brown hair and brown eyes (DUH she can see that) and liking to read. I got the job but probably not because of my amazing communication skills. 

Random Fact #8: Up until a few months ago I was pretty much addicted to Coke (the beverage not the drug) but I've finally kicked that. Instead I'm addicted to Pepsi. Maybe one of these days I'll be addicted to water....yeah...ok...that's never going to happen. 

Random Fact #9: My absolute life-long dream is to write and publish a novel. And if said novel made it into the top 100 best seller list--actually really any list--I would consider my professional life a pretty great success. 

Random Fact #10: I'm pretty sure I was born in the wrong time-period. I would love to be able to go back to the days of the Antebellum South, World War II, or the pioneer days. Except for the whole bathroom situation--this girl does not do outhouses. 

Alright so now that you know ten absolutely useless important things about me, I'm asking y'all a favor. Tell me one absolutely random quirky thing about yourself. I'm kind of loving getting out of shell a little and telling all of you a little more about me and I would LOVE to get to know all of you a little better!! 

So let's be friends!!!! Tell me something random about yourself!!
