Tag, I'm it.

I read Evan's blog. That means that I have been tagged to share 5 interesting or unique things about myself that you may not know. I'm actually pretty boring, so I'm not very interesting nor unique, so this may be somewhat difficult.

1. I have a mini fridge. Magnetically held to this mini fridge are two finger puppets, two images graven in the likeness of Friedrich Nietzsche and Fyodor Dostoevsky. They often have conversations concerning whether Raskolnikov from Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment is an ├╝bermensch or if he is all-too-human. When they start to discuss this, I usually try to direct the conversation toward either the similarities between Woody Allen's Crimes and Misdemeanors (and Match Point) and Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment or whether Paul Dano's character "Dwayne" in Little Miss Sunshine is an ├╝bermensch just because he doesn't speak (I say no, because he still has desires that are communicated). So that's interesting.

2. Flying doesn't make my arms tired. I flew for the first time on Sunday January, 14. I found that, despite popular opinion, flying does not make my arms tired.

3. I have a towel that is brown on one half and white on the other. The brown side is adorned with the word "BUTT" in big white letters, while the white side has the word "FACE" in big brown letters. This towel is to ensure that once you are out of the shower you do not dry your face with the same part of the towel that you dry your butt with. I think it is an ingenious invention and I thank my Aunt and Uncle for gifting in to me for my birthday. Now I can leave all worries behind while I dry off after a shower.

4. I like to put peanuts in my Coke. It's good, try it.

5. Thursday is laundry day. I get up in the morning and put all of my dirty clothes and my laundry detergent into my army bag and walk to the laundry mat. I fill two loads and pay the $1.50 per load. Then I walk down the road to Big Fat Burrito and get a 12 inch steak burrito. After I finish the burrito, I return to the laundry mat to put my laundry in the dryer. I then venture out again and do my grocery shopping. I usually buy sourdough bread, cheddar cheese, broccoli, apples, blueberries, and milk for the week. I put all of this in my army bag and walk it home, where I then, after putting all of my groceries in their proper place, exchange my bag for my clothes basket. Subsequently, I return to the laundry mat to remove my clothes from the dryer, fold them, and place them into my laundry basket for the return trip home. When I arrive back home, I put the clothes in their proper places and then sit on my butt for the remainder of the day.

I told you that I was uninteresting and lack uniquetitude.
