5 Things You Probably Don't Know About Me / Vlog

Health Update: Healing from surgery. It may take me a while to return visits after, if I am able to (healing is 4-6 weeks). But I will pop in to see your comments and to reply back to them. <3

Thank you for coming to another vlog post on Write with Fey!

This time, I am sharing two fun videos. In the first, I am revealing 5 things you probably don't know about me. In the second, I am showing you 5 odd things you could find on my desk.

My best friend Kerri can sing all the words to REM's It's the End of the World as We Know It. I don't think she'd do that on video either.

I hope everything went well with the surgery and you are home recovering.

Great videos, Chrys. You're so cute! Love that you can still rock the baton. I had one when I was very small and loved it. I took it everywhere with me. I was enrolled in tap dance at the time :)

I love the scalp massage thingy. I want one. 5 weird things on my desk; a rock, tweezers, lip gloss/balm, feathers, small pieces of torn up pages. I won't even explain the stuff LOL.

You may not know about me that I used to teach aerobics. I got my certification when Flashdance hit the theatres. Haha. I'm dating myself. And yes, I had leg warmers!!

Hope you're recovering and resting up, Chrys. Thinking of you.

I don't have a desk, but I do have a table by me. It doesn't have anything really weird on it, though. Mostly my prescriptions and a glass of water.

I don't know what's wrong, but the videos won't play for me. I don't use a desk. I have office supplies on shelves and my laptop is on a tray to make it easier to hold. I don't think I have five odd things on my shelves. Two might be out of the ordinary. I have a Winnie the Pooh and Tigger clock with my name on it, and a Downton Abbey bell like the kind the family would ring when they wanted the servants. Five things you probably don't know about me? 1. I am the true Lorelai Gilmore and my daughter is the true Rory. 2. I play the piano and used to play well. Don't practice enough now. 3. I am the youngest of six children: one boy and five girls. My brother passed away quite some time ago. 4. I can't remember a time that we all lived at home. My brother was a senior in high school when I was born. He moved out right after he graduated. Some of my earliest memories are of my oldest sister coming home on college breaks for visits. 5. I keep a Christmas tree up in my home office all year round. It's not decorated, but it does have lights. I love small lights. Whoa! It was hard to come up with five.

My sister used to be an excellent majorette. She could twirl a baton and do all the tricks. My favorite were the fire batons. I was little when she was in high school, so I was doubly impressed.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Chrys - excellent to see these ... and I'm so glad the surgery all those years ago was reasonably successful. It's great to see the videos - you do do them really well. I could never do baton twirling! But rather like the stress relievers ... fun to see - thanks for sharing these things ... mine is just full of note books, and cuttings and the odd book - nothing very exciting ... cheers Hilary

Julie Flanders said...

I hope your healing and recovery goes as smoothly as possible, Chrys. As always you do such a great job with these videos!

emaginette said...

Bobble-headed Groot, and paintbrush are the weirdest. One to make me smile the other to dust my keyboard. :-)

We wanna hear you rap. I take it you did these videos before your surgery? I hope you are recovering nicely. As for things on my desk... I have 17 books (I just counted) with five open, at present (along with a pager for the VFD I'm in, business cards, several commemorative paperweights nad a "hand cross" that feels nice to hold.

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Hi, Chrys. I enjoyed your videos. Your desk is a most interesting place. I knew about your spinal surgery but hadn't heard that you twirled a baton. So did I. In Jr. High and Sr. High I was a majorette. It was a lot of fun. You've been through a lot. Hope you recover from your latest surgery soon. Take it easy.

Chrys Fey said...

Everything did go well. I am trying to get back to blogging, at least to catch up on comments. :)

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Madeline!

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Liz!

Chrys Fey said...

I'm glad you enjoyed them, Sherry!

Chrys Fey said...

I'm not sure why they aren't working for you, either, Janie. Sorry about that!

A Downton Abbey bell would be neat to have on a writing desk. :)

Your #1 made me smile

I am sorry for your loss!

I am also the youngest of the family, Five kids total.

And I keep a small Christmas tree up year-round, too. I have it on my porch and try to decorate it for each season.

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks, Lisa! What's funny is that when I shared these videos in a Facebook group, several people also comment about how cute I am. *blushes and hides* LOL

I am curious about those small pieces of torn-up pages.

How cool that you used to teach aerobics!

Chrys Fey said...

That makes me sad...that you have so many prescriptions and deal with so much. :'(

Chrys Fey said...

I have never touched a fire baton. Nor will I ever. LOL!!!

Chrys Fey said...

I'm glad you enjoy my videos, Hilary! :D

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Julie!

Chrys Fey said...

Aw. I want a Groot bobble head!

Chrys Fey said...

Yes, I did so these videos before my surgery. I will be sharing some older ones mixed in with some newer ones.

I may do a short rapping video in the future. A VERY short video. lol

Chrys Fey said...

I wasn't a part of any baton twirling team or anything. I did it for fun, mostly by myself. :)

Thank you, Beverly!

Murees Dupè said...

Hey Chrys. I loved these two videos. You are a natural. I have to go watch the others on your channel too. You look like you're really having fun in the videos, and you just have a great way of presenting, or talking.
