25 random things about me.

Happy Friday and Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. I’m looking forward to a beautiful weekend of weather and family and I just can’t wait.

In the meantime, here are twenty five random things about me:

1. I’m left-handed.
2. I was almost kidnapped when I was younger but I talked the guy out of it.
3. My eyes are hazel — but some days they look green and some days they look brown — usually depends on what I’m wearing.
4. If I could wear flip-flops every day, I would.
5. I’ve never been able to stand canned tuna fish sandwiches…the smell repulses me …but I love fresh tuna steaks. Go figure!
6. I went to college in Hawaii (for part, at least)…and everyone thought I was going there to major in volleyball and sunbathing but I found my interest in photography there.
7. I love anything and everything Pixar. I have all the movies on DVD and one summer, I went to McDonald’s to get all the Finding Nemo Happy Meal toys.
8. I have a tattoo of Dr. Seuss’ “…red fish, blue fish” on my ankle. Partially because I’m a pisces and partially because I’m a kid at heart.
9. My gall bladder is no more. I also have a couple of scars on my belly from the laproscopic surgery.
10. I love my sleep. Don’t bother me or you will be injured.
11. My nickname, Smilez, came about in a southbound car going to San Jose on Highway 101 in the pouring rain. My friend Jeff said, “Your nickname should be Smiley since you smile so much.” It was shortened to Smilez a couple days later.
12. I think wearing makeup is nice but it takes a lot of effort to do so I end up only wearing it once in awhile.
13. When I was younger, I wanted braces so bad, I would fashion a retainer out of a paperclip. It, of course, was worthless….
14. I’m really anal when it comes to my magazines. I need to read them before anyone else does. I think this stems from when my sisters would steal my YMs and Sassys and do the quizzes in them before I got to them.
15. I have two favorite kinds of apples: Braeburn and Honeycrisp. They are always crunchy and crispy.
16. I didn’t like tomatoes until college and recently, I’m starting to not like them again.
17. My all-time favorite vegetable is artichokes. Yum, yum, yum.
18. I miss the days in the darkroom putting the prints through the developer, stop and fixer. The smells, the dark room with just barely enough light to work in…you could’ve left me there all weekend long.
19. I have always wanted to open a bakery with my cupcakes and sour cream twists…
20. I like flying in airplanes — it’s always exciting.
21. I love the aftertaste you get when you eat pickles.
22. I am certified to scuba dive but at this point would have to refresh my memory since it’s been awhile since I’ve gone.
23. I could stare at maps all day long.
24. I was named after a James Taylor song — “Sarah Maria” –but my parents changed the middle name to something different because they didn’t want their friends realizing they named me after a song.
25. I love See’s Candies.

Any fun plans this weekend?
