Random Friday Facts: Long Weekend Edition

1. I work from home (almost) every Friday. This is very good for my sanity.

2. I have a major sunglasses fetish. I tend to buy them impulsively, and $200+ price tags definitely don’t deter me.

3. I have the entire Adobe CS4 suite on my personal computer but still haven’t really learned how to use it. It’s an overwhelming undertaking. Anyone want to tutor me?

4. Peanut M&Ms are my favorite candy. Ever. Almond Snickers comes in at a close second.

5. Technology that doesn’t function properly (uh, my stupid work Dell laptop) is at the top of my pet peeve list. I have no patience for this.

6. Sewing is on my list of domestic skills. I made many of the pillows for our apartment and have a few handmade items in my closet. Again, it has taken a lot of practice — and instruction from my mother — to get to this point.

7. I have to go to the grocery store with a list, even if I’m just picking up the same things I buy every week. It’s always organized by aisle and area of the store.

8. My sisters and I were mortal enemies growing up (I mean, what siblings weren’t?) but now they are my best friends.

9. I own an abundance of kitchenware, including almost every appliance under the sun, a full set of china and plenty of unnecessary gadgets. Thank you, two graduations and a debutante party.

10. I am most looking forward to frozen daiquiris and low country boil when I go home next week.

Your turn! What’s your random Friday fact? And what’s on tap for the holiday weekend?

  2. I love this! That is totally how I was/am with my sisters, too! And I have china, crystal and silver thanks to many generations of wedding presents (I think mine is my paternal grandmothers). What am I going to do with all this???

  3. I love working from home, but I couldn’t do it every day. Those random (or scheduled) once a week days are the best!

  4. 1. Oh my goodness, so great that you can do that!
    3. I used to have to use Photoshop for my job…but I think I still only new how to use 1/10 of the functions in that program. I miss having it so much, though:(
    4. I don’t think I’ve ever had an Almond Snickers. I may have to rectify this immediately. I do love peanut M&Ms!!
    7. Me too!
    10. Daiquiris, yum!
    11. We missed you today! I hope we can all try and get out again sometime soon:)
