Random Facts About Moi

I use conditioner as shaving gel. Strange, yes but I promise it will make your legs sooooo smooth and it’s cheaper than buying shaving gel! I get a big bottle of whatever is on sale. It last forever and makes my legs silky smooth!

                                                   **********

When I was younger I wanted to be many things:
a marine biologist and perform with Shamu at Sea World,
a travel show host, and a backup dancer.

**********

In my early 20’s I was hired to teach ballroom dancing. I cried when my boss told me I had the job……right there in front of him I started crying like a little baby! When I was younger dancing was my life and he had just made one of my dreams come true. I was an orthodontic assistant by day and an aspiring ball room instructor by night. I had to go through several weeks of training before I could start teaching. I went to my day job at 7am and didn’t get home until 10:30 from practice. In true “Kendra fashion” I didn’t stick with it. I was tried from the long days and spent a ton on gas getting where I needed to be. To this day I still regret that I didn’t follow through with it.

**********

I’m a planner to my demise. Sometimes my OCD planning skills are great other times they’re just plain annoying. Anytime I’m in motion I have a plan for where I’m going and what my next move is. I’m constantly making list in my head.

**********

Smacking and poor manners are my pet peeves but I guess smacking falls under poor manners.

**********

If I want a little treat I stop by QT for a diet Pepsi with a splash of regular Pepsi. Just adding a tiny bit of regular Pepsi takes that diet drink edge off without adding all the all the extra calories of a regular soda.

**********

I’m the baby in my family. I have a HUGE family but
no full brothers or sisters.

**********

Kent and I used to own a pizza restaurant called Slice

**********

I often break out in random song and dance.
I’m glad that Kent finds it entertaining and not annoying!

**********

When I was living in China I slipped and fell in a puddle. Welllll it was a puddle but NOT a puddle of water like I thought it was. It was actually a puddle of chicken blood that the market butcher spilled. It was dark out and there were very few lights on the street. I didn’t catch on that it was blood until I got close to a light and freaked out when I looked down.

**********

When I was teaching in China I got into a tug of war match with one of my students over a comic book. My supervisor was taping my class that day and got the whole thing on camera. I wish I had a copy of that!

  3. Those ARE random! lol! I am the baby and have only half-siblings as well!

    I didn't know you danced; so cool!!

    Random fact about me: While living in NYC, my best friend and I once interviewed to be "escorts." Seriously. Just to see what would happen! They wanted to hire us. They said we could just give "massages." HA! Obviously, we didn't take the job, but it was a VERY interesting experience!

  5. First time poster here, but always a follower. I LOVE your blog! That's really cool you owned a pizza place. Somehow that doesn't surprise me though. You seem to be so good at a lot of things. Neat facts!

  6. What a fun post! You have a very interesting life! I didn't know you used to be an Ortho assistant. I worked in the field for several years and got so burned out from changing arch wires and taking nasty impressions! I had a dream the other night that I was working again at an office I hated and boy was I relived when I woke up! It was more like a nightmare.

  8. Okay, I'll play-

    -I was an "exotic dancer" (stripper) in the 80's

    -I wash my hair with only conditioner, I'll have to try the shaving thing

    -I have been ruined for reading since I discovered "audio books", though magazines (fashion) are my guilty pleasure

  10. I will have to try the conditioner and baby oil rather than shaving gel since I have gobs of both that never seem to run out.

    My 1st random fact: From the time my husband and I met to the time we got married was a little less than 9 months. People in my little hometown were shocked because I'm such a cautious (many of the people back home went as far as to call me picky) person. It's been over 7 years now, and we're still madly in love!
    2nd Random Fact: I talk to myself. It starts out just in my head and then I usually end up talking out loud. Unfortunately, I sometimes do it in public.
