25 Things

You {probably} didn’t know about me.

Since I’m still sicky-sick, I figured my crazy mass of bed head and bright red Rudolph nose just wouldn’t make the cut for a video, so here are some random tidbits about me.

1). The first thing I think about when I wake up is food and what I’m going to eat that day and I will either eat really well and clean or go all the way and indulge.
2). I suffer from anxiety and sometimes just that fact alone makes me feel very anxious, lol.
3). My first boyfriends name was Joshua. He was the ring bearer and I was the flower girl and I really thought we were getting married that day.

{Me & my “fiancée”}
4). I will listen to a song a million times in a row until I am literally tired of hearing it in which time, it will retire for many years until I stumble upon it again.
5). My Korean name is Soogee

{Written on my very special handmade surprise present}

6). I want French fries with everything. Slap it on my burger, sprinkle it on my pizza… How about a side of fries with your pad thai? Yes, please.

{Smiley ones are one of my faves + sriracha!}

7). I’m deathly afraid of the dark, as in no amount of money will see me walk through a dark room and I will never watch a scary movie with you. Silliness, I know.
8). I’m much like a child in the sense that I still believe in mermaids, I watch kids shows, I never want to go to bed, I always want dessert after a meal, and sometimes I just want to roll down a grassy hill or run through a sprinkler.

{One of my favorite movies as a kid}
9). I pride myself in being a minimalist. Too much “stuff” freaks me out. I only own 3 pairs of shoes if that gives you any idea.
10). One of my tattoos is of our family name written in my daddy’s handwriting.
11). I have all the lyrics to Ludacris’ “what’s your fantasy” memorized and I do not know why.
12). I love checking other people’s shopping carts at the grocery store.
13). I’m addicted to chapstick and washing my hands.  Burt’s Bees & Mrs. Meyers make me very happy.
14). I’ve never exercised a day in my life nor do I know what the inside of a gym looks like :/
15). I enjoy what my friends consider “strange,” dried squid, raw fermented crab, durian, fish jerky, and bacon egg and jam sandwiches!
16). Girl crush #1: Natalie Portman!

17). 17 is my lucky number.
18). Korean was my first language and I had to take ESL and for years, struggled with saying the words worm and world.
19). I’m fairly confident that I’m prepared to take a zombie down, if need be–haha.  As you probably already know, I’m a bit obsessed with “The Walking Dead”

20). I’m always cold but never dress for the occasion. My heart is always somewhere warm and balmy.
21). It is my dream to travel the world and help those in need (Pack Away Hunger on a grander scale, if you will).

22). I desperately want an English Bulldog pup.

23).  I used to model and it was probably my least favorite job ever.

(but now I have at least one heavy narcissistic buffet to share)!
24). I can read an entire book in a day.

{One of my absolute favorites that I zipped through in 4 hours}
25). My family is my entire world and I’m super excited about preparing Easter supper for them this weekend!

Hoppy Easter!

So what says you? Share something funny or crazy with me!

Hoping tomorrow’s the day I’m better, *fingers crossed*
Your Squishy Monster ^.~

    Great to know few thing about you. Even though we meet so many people in the food blogging world, we never get to know who they are. And reading your list makes me more comfortable interacting with you!

  • Maureen says:

    The only one that made me roll my eyes was the bacon egg and jam. Individually, I like them all but heaped in one spot, nup.

    Great to learn more about you and I hope you feel better soon.

    Hi Angela, how you doing? Hope you getting better by now. You look so cute, adorable and now a beautiful grown up girl. The modelling photos, you look gorgeous.

    I love to read the 25 things about you, you’re so sweet.
    No: 1 – I’m with you. I think about food first thing when I wake up and thru out the day.
    No: 4 – I can repeat the same songs that I like over and over again and never get tired of it.
    No: 6 – I love fries anytime or for breakfast to go with my antidote – coffee.
    No: 8 – I’m still very childish and enjoy kids show or my favorite cartoon.
    No 9 – I’m out cos I own 50 pairs of shoes. LOL

    Happy Easter and have a lovely week ahead.

    LOVE this post, it’s was great knowing you a bit better!

  • Sandra's Easy Cooking says:

    It* was….my spelling errors!:D

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    Tag, you’re it! Would love to find out more about you, too!

  • Paul Anthony Prince says:

    #1 Your #four & #six are me as well. #six is the reason I’m in the gym as much as I am.

    2) I’m really terrible at making list.

    C) I don’t know that I have a lucky number, however 42 is my favorite.

    #5a Some times I say words strangely to remember how to spell them, even simple ones like fav-o-rite. Yes, I said it that way out loud two times while making this post.

    7-2) I’m quite(quiet) possibly the most shyest person you’ll ever meet. I find it difficult to make small talk. :/ Like Mr. Ed I won’t speak unless there’s something worth saying. Typing however is a different story, all because of the backspace key.

    v.42_42.1 I’m also quite nerdy, but that’s no secret now is it. ~.^

    #8 I ab-so-lute-ly love to sing!! If you know of a decent Karaoke haunt in crowntown, please share. I’ve yet to find one that suits me.

    Time for me to sign off, I hope your weekend is going well!

    Love & Prayers,


  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I graviate towards the nerdy as well…nothin’ wrong with that =)

  • Paul Anthony Prince says:

    Have you heard the response by Wil Weaton to “Why it’s
    awesome to be a nerd?” “…during my panel, I was asked by a young
    woman to explain to her newborn daughter, Violet, why it was
    awesome to be a nerd. As it turns out, I’ve been having that
    conversation with my sons for their entire lives, so I spoke from
    the heart and told her.” and then this happened… Enjoy! I couldn’t sum it up any better. less
    than three, Paul
