cold showers & hot coffee

- Sometimes, sometimes, if I'm in the right mood, I like cold showers. It only happens once in a while but sometimes I actually appreciate it when the hot water heater sputters out and refuses to do what it should.
- I also like hot coffee.
- For the majority of the time, hot water is preferred when I take a shower.
- Sometimes, on rare occasions, I like cold coffee.
- What these two things have to do with each other, I have no idea.
- Facebook notifications. I love them. Really, who doesn't?
- The other day I had 51 Facebook notifications. O.o
- I love the feeling of dangling a necklace over your hand and then letting the cool chain settle in your palm. (Kudos to Tumblr for reminding me of how much I loved to do that.)
- I just drank a glass of almond milk.
- With every fact I type, it strikes me how ridiculous and random this post is.
- Our cats sharpen their claws on our couches. This is generally Not A Good Thing.
- I've never owned a dog.
- I have a fish though. His name is Finnick. (Yes. Named after the character in The Hunger Games.)
- Before Finnick, I had a fish named Flynn.
- I'm just sitting here typing any absurd nonsense that comes to mind.
- Do you ever wonder if you're the only one in the world who does certain things?
- Do you ever wonder if a stranger you pass on the street might end up being your friend someday? (Kudos to Micah for bringing that up.)
- I've been using "XD" and typing all caps a lot. Mirriam and Keaghan's fault, I think. ;)
- Samarah and I need Rangers in our lives ASAP. Just so you know.
- I love how the internet gives you friends you didn't even know you had.
- I came across a new word today: Sonder. I've felt this way a lot.
- I loved Gale in The Hunger Games books. Maybe even more than Peeta. (Don't kill me, Peeta fans.)
- This weekend I sang out a One Direction lyric while playing Super Mario brawl with my brother and two of his friends. Yes, my friends, I sang a lyric from a boy band while playing a video game. In perfect context. It felt pretty awesome.
- Lest you think I'm a Directioner... I'm really not. I appreciate the band and a couple of their songs, but other than that, my show of fandom for them is pretty lame.
- SUMMER IS HERE. Let us rejoice.
- I hoped you enjoyed reading this conglomeration of randomness. You have just taken a step inside my brain. Congratulations: this is me.

  1. GALE FANS UNITE! Also, I'm rather fond of cold showers on occasion ... I love this list. Nice to know I'm not the only one who thinks these strange things ;)

    1. YOU'RE A GALE FAN TOO?! YEEESSSSSS. *pumps fist*

      Haha, that was exactly what I was trying to do -- help my readers feel like they're not alone in the things they think or do, and that those things aren't weird -- they're actually quite normal. So I'm glad it worked! :D

  2. When you are FB friends with Mirriam, you can expect TONS of notifications. Lol

    Love Finnick the Fish. <3 that is a smashing idea.

    Mirriam has influenced me to do these more: ^.^

    And I love random posts!

    1. Haha, I know. I blame Mirriam. ;) But she's awesome, so it totally works. I love it, actually.

      Aw, thanks! Yeah, I thought it was a perfect name for a fish. He's a shimmery blue and green and has quite a spunky personality, so I think he lives up to his name. ;) He reminds me of the book-Finnick quite a lot.

      Oh yeah, those little emoticons are adorable, haha! I don't use them... yet... but with Mirriam's wide and all-powerful influence, it may very well happen soon. XD

      Me too. :D

      Thanks for the comment!

    1. Aw, love you too!

      Yes, when in doubt, keep calm and dangle a necklace in your hand. *nods sagely*

    2. Or, Keep Calm and Call Batman. That totally works too. ;) I did a post on that once and since then I've become notorious for it. XD

  6. Agh. I was trying to approve Emily's comment, but I accidentally deleted it instead. >.< Sorry, Emily!

    Here's what she said: "hehe, I love random posts =) on the subject of cold showers: they seem like a really good idea when I'm boiling, and I get in and for the first two seconds I'm like "oh this is bliss!" but then I start to get goosebumps so I put the hot water on instead ;) "

    I love them too! And yeah, haha, a lot of times I wimp out and prefer hot water. XD Like I said, my mood has to be perfect for me to enjoy a cold shower. But sometimes I enjoy them -- especially during the summer. As for the rest of the time, well... at least we can enjoy those two seconds of bliss while it lasts. XD

    1. YES I LIKE ALMOND MILK! <3 It's convenient too because I can't drink dairy milk right now -- chiropractor's orders. I reeeeallly miss "real" milk but almond milk is a good substitute! So I'm wheat-free and milk-free now. Fun stuff, that.

    1. EHEHEHE. EHE.

      Thank you. XD I love that word.

      Okay, so, I just have to make note of this:

      Eristor and Zane have reached an alliance.
      Alec is in love with Riah.

      I NOW BELIEVE IN MIRACLES. XD

      EHEHE.
      EHE.

    2. MIRACLES CAN HAPPEN!!!!
      EHEHEH! IT'S PROVEN! EHEH!

    3. INDEED, INDEED. XD

      (Especially the someone-falling-in-love with Riah part. At times she can be a bit hard to get along with, and Alec hasn't even seen the worst of it. XD)

  10. Agh! *kicks self* I accidentally deleted someone's comment... aaaagain. -_- Sorry, Melody! Here's what she wrote:

    For what it's worth...I also liked Gale a bit more than I liked Peeta. As the books progressed, I realized who I was *supposed* to like, but I'm a "childhood sweetheart" kind of person, and I just couldn't help myself. :)

    I occasionally like cold showers, but I don't like coffee, hot or cold.

    Also, 'sonder' is a lovely new word in my vocabulary, now, thanks to you. :)

    1. Oh, good! I'm not alone! It seems as if everyone loves Peeta. I understand why, but I think Gale gets tossed aside in the hype about the boy with the bread. (Don't get me wrong, I like Peeta well enough, too.) And yes! I loved the whole childhood sweetheart thing too. Plus, in the movie he's played by Liam Hemsworth -- who I confess I have a soft spot for because I used him as a cover model for one of my characters. So what's not to love?

      I had a cold shower this morning and it wasn't exactly that pleasant. XD And don't worry about not liking coffee! It's not for everyone. I confess that I am a bit of a shameless addict.

      Ah, you're welcome! I quite love that word.
