Lindsey Fantastic

One thing you need to know about me is that I am a big fan of lists, I would marry a list if it were possible. Since it is not, I will just have to settle with creating a list about myself for you to enjoy. Here goes.

1. I am weird. I really am. I like even numbers, I do not like mushrooms and I am wary of balloons (down graded from "afraid of" because I have improved in that department). There are many more things that exemplify my weirdness, but that would make this list far too long.

2. I love art, books, movies, music and television. That sounds vague and non-specific, but there is really no way to specify my favorites from those things because I generally just enjoy being entertained and don't really mind too much what genre, channel or time period that entertainment comes from.

3. I am a single, LDS girl in her mid-twenties and I live with my sister and her family. People generally don't know what to do with me.

4. I am quite addicted to my family. My sister is my best friend. My nephews and niece are some of my most favorite people to be around. My mom is amazing.

5. I don't think I really understand how funny I am. I'm still just trying to figure things out - but I LOVE IT when people laugh at my jokes. I just keep saying stuff and people laugh and that is surprising to me every time. Seriously, EVERY. TIME.

6. I have recently begun a love affair with Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Macadamia ice cream. This is probably the most important piece of information on this list because, if you ever want to become my friend, just show up at my door with a pint of it in your gorgeous hand and I will welcome you into my life with open arms.

7. I have more nick names than any one person should have to handle - and I still get new ones. I don't really know what makes a person susceptible to nick names, but whatever it is I have it.

8. I get crazy silly crushes on random celebrities, but I do an okay job at keeping them kind of under control. It's not like I still plaster pictures of them all over my wall or anything. I just, you know, follow them on Twitter...or not.

9. I am addicted to technology. I cannot live without my computer, my phone or my iPod. And they all have names.

10. I am happy to be where I am right now. This was not always the case, but I am glad that circumstances have changed to make it so.

So there I am, in a nutshell ("Look at me! I'm in a nutshell!"). I've already shared my reasons for creating this blog so I won't repeat myself, but I will say that I am looking forward to finding out why I felt the need to get this up and running. I am anxious to learn new things and figure out ways to make my life more like I want it to be and I am excited to share it all with you.

Before you post, check for spelling and grammar mistakes. It will make a big difference... Right now, I probably wouldn't come back.

anonymous...i'm sure these girls want to present a finished product...i bet they'd appreciate if you told them where you found an error. it's really easy to miss things.

I think you are super fantastic!


Yeah, I didn't see any mistakes and I am a huge grammar freak.

Cool idea for a blog.
