Let's talk about our weird quirks

And by "weird," I mean not all that weird really when you consider the disgusting things some people are into, but.. uh... something about individuality and loving yourself for who you are... and all that.

1. Let's get the weirdest out of the way: I still watch cracking videos like it's my job. JUDGE ME. Or just watch this.

2. I always have my cell phone by me. Always. It's training from working as a reporter. Which means I know the second you text me or call me or contact me in some other stupid way. But I don't want to be that creep who responds within seconds so I purposely hold off for a few minutes. It takes a lot of caring to look like you don't care.

3. Using my hands while singing might be one of my favorite things on earth. And "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" is still the quintessential song for this. (I was about to use the word penultimate until I determined I actually have no idea what that word means)

4. I spend way too much money on foundation that makes my skin look greasy as shit. Congratulations, Katie, you're an asshole.

5. I keep dreaming of having hair that's long enough to pull over my shoulder in a fishtail braid. It's one of my top life goals. Yet in the five years I've decided this is what my life has been leading up to, I still haven't managed to accomplish it.

6. There are just some celebrities I really root for despite having no particular reason why... like Chris Pratt. I just want him to do well. You know?

7. I'm listening to One Direction's "Story of My Life" right now and wishing I could sing just so I could belt it out. I barely knew who One Direction was before this song.

8. One of my pet causes is the disparity between male and female nudity in movies and cable TV shows. If it were up to me, a 1:1 ratio would be strictly enforced--that is, for every naked female, there would have to be a naked male. It's the principle of the matter.

9. I refuse to eat papaya. That shit belongs in my cleanser, not in my salad.

10. When I was a child, I honest-to-god thought some men didn't have nipples. This was based on a real-life actor dressed as Aladdin who was wearing a costume that didn't feature nipples.

11. I'm really, really into smorgasbords and I wish more restaurants served dishes like the Triple Dipper.

12. I couldn't drink champagne for years because my sister once dared me to drink an entire bottle by myself for a free KFC meal. Of course I got my free fried chicken and biscuit with butter substitute.

13. I legitimately like Paris Hilton's "Stars Are Blind" song. You would too if it wasn't Paris Hilton.

If you show me real love baby, I'll show you mine.

14. I want to be rich just so I can have enough money to pay someone to laser off all of my body hair.

15. I'm a really big snob when it comes to asserting how much I hate snobs. I guess you can't win at everything.


  1. "Stars are Blind" went on the first mix CD I ever made for Matt--it's pure pop gold! I'm also really into her other song, "nothing in this world." I have no regrets.

  2. Ok fine, I admit. Stars are Blind is a super catchy song. And if she didn't sing it, I would blast it openly all summer. But she does. So I'll listen to it quietly when I am sure that no one can hear me. Also, I root against certain celebrities. Like, they screw up once and piss me off and now I just hope they crash and burn. It's weird. And not very nice. But then again, I guess none of us can be nice allll the time.


  3. You have no reason to have any regrets. That song is a gem as well.

  4. Oh god, I do that too. I've completely forgotten why I dislike some celebrities but the distaste for them still remains. I disliked Jordin Sparks forever after she made that one comment at the VMAs that basically insinuated anyone who doesn't wear a purity ring is a slut.

  5. Penultimate means next-to-last, so probably not the right choice there. :p

    I didn't know who One Direction was until half of my fandom friends got into them. Now I have a couple of songs by them on iTunes and a penchant for reading long 1D fanfic when I need a happiness boost. Win-win.

  6. Haha, you know, I can understand the tween girl love for Harry Styles. It makes sense.

  7. I don't know, I've had an embarrassing crush on Liam Payne for a while. And Zayn's face is a work of art. But Harry's a pretty great teen idol. He has good opinions on sexism at least.
