Random Facts about Luke

It seems like today everyone and their brother has a blog. Which is great! I love reading other people blogs and keeping up with what is going on in their lives. Our Little Ranch's blog started as just a way for us to be able to keep in touch with my family in Indiana, now it has grown into a developing photography business.

I really enjoy when bloggers blog with personal stories and not just boring, mundane, dull stuff. I like being able to read someone's blogs and feel like I know them. We try to keep our blog casual and personal, not professional and lifeless. So, keeping with that train of thought and in honor of my birthday, I am going to share some random facts about myself. This way you can feel like we are more than just a blogger and a blog reader. We are actually friends who could strike up a conversation and have stuff to talk about.

Here goes nothing!

1) I can never remember which hand my Aggie ring goes on and which hand my wedding ring goes on. I have to look at others to see where their rings are.

2) I hate being wet. I like swimming, and bathing, but when I get done I want to immediately be dry. I have contemplated installing a wind tunnel or trying to get those things in the car wash that dries your car when you get done.

3) The noise that a bathroom fan makes, makes me anxious and jittery. Don't ask why. I don't know.

4) I am horrified of snakes.

5) I have a tendency to be scared of the dark. Mainly because I am a rather skittish person and don't like being surprised and think that something is always lurking in the shadows. For this reason when I was younger I carried a pitchfork with me to and from the barn when I went out there at dark.

5) I think that tea tree shampoo is life changing.

6) I consider myself to be rather knowledgable about food, a foodie, if you will.

7) I can't spell or punctuate to save my life. I can't do math that well without a calculator.

8) Christmas music puts me in a better mood regardless of season. I listen to it year-round.

9) I still have a blankie. I don't sleep with it like I used to, but I know where it is at all times. Catherine has attempted to hide/steal it and it results in all out warfare.

10) I practice signing my name in various different ways about 34 times per day. I have an infatuation with handwriting and people signatures. I would say that my first impression of people is based off of their handwriting. So if I ask you for a sample, please don't be alarmed.

11) I hate hot weather. I would rather be wrapped in a parka in the middle of the frozen tundra than feel a bead of sweat roll down my forehead.

12) I love Disney music and movies. Also, Celtic/Riverdance stuff and instrumental music, but mainly Disney. Unless you throw in Star Wars, which is my favorite! My previous email was lukeskywalker58@… I am that into Star Wars.

13) My feet sweat like nobody's bid-ness. My parents had to cut out the feet portion of my pajamas when I was younger.

14) Kraft Mac & Cheese is king, Tropical Punch Kool-aid is queen.

15) I have always felt like I could have magical powers, I just don't know how to use them.

16) Miracle Whip is far superior to that nasty mayonnaise stuff.

17) I really want to travel to Australia, England, Scotland and Ireland.

18) I don't like to read. I have maybe read 10 books in my lifetime and they had a lot of pictures.

19) I don't like to shave. I maybe shave once a week.

20) I do like Kraft Mac & Cheese and kool-aid! Did you already know that?

21) Nursing homes and hospitals scare me. I just feel very uncomfortable and not sure what to do or say.

22) I am not a very shy person, but I am never the one to start a conversation with a stranger. I also never talk about my feelings or emotions. I just shut down and say nothing. I guess I am not a touchy-feely type person.

23) My sense of humor tends to be sarcastic in nature. Something that Catherine can't pick up on quite yet.

24) I think that video games should not be based on killing people. What happened to jumping on killer mushrooms and throwing turtle shells at people?

25) I wore braces for 6 years.

26) I am a fast walker and have no patience for slow walkers.

27) I wear a size 13 shoe.

28) When I hear a song I like, I can listen to it over and over with our tiring of it. I will usual sing along if no one else is around. I cannot sing in public. It horrifies me!

29) I have never had chicken pox.

30) I like to make people laugh.

31) I’m great with kids. I’m like a kid magnet. Kids love me for some reason. Seriously!

31) The first thing I do when I wake up is reach for my mobile phone.

32) Whenever I see a character holding his/her breathe in a movie or on television, I always attempt to hold my breathe in for as long as he/she can.

33) I still enjoy building and playing with Lego sets.

34) I think that is enough for now.

Now you know a little bit more about me. I can tell that our friendship is growing. Catherine and I are leaving for Indiana in the morning, taking pictures along the way, so be sure to check back for updates.

Have a great afternoon!


  1. Oh, great. A grandson with phobias and OCD. LOL And, btw, Luke.....lose the sarcastic humor. Otherwise, you are delightful child and always have been............. love to you and Catherine. See you in Indiana.

  2. A foodie who has crowned Kraft mac and cheese king? odd. But I am with you on the feeling odd in old people homes and hospitals. And the love of miracle whip is a northen thing or so they tell me:(
