You Say Quirky, I Say Me

My pal Sara wants to know my quirks. Who me? You must be joking! (snort.)

1. I am afraid of the dark. I'm not even almost embarrassed about it. I'm a nightlight addict, they're everywhere. Well really, who wants to break their neck in the middle of the night trying to get a drink of water or be tripped out there's a spider on the wall that only comes out in the dark? Anybody?

2. I sleep with my contacts in. For months at a time. Lasik you ask? Dream on wonder bunny; I have a very low pain tolerance. Can you believe I had 3 babies? Neither can I. I usually forget about my contacts, but right now my glasses are in storage.

3. All I want for my birthday (4/30) are things I already own in my storage unit. Eye glasses, Easter dresses, a box of shoes... Sweet mercy, my shoes.

4. I adore high heels. I only own two pairs of shoes that do not have 3 inch heels. I must have at least 2 dozen pairs. In my defense, my shoe habit collection is the only thing that belongs to me. I mean, as a mother, every other possession I have is practically communal property. But the heels? They're mine. And, let's face it, dang cute.

5. I'm an American Idol junky. Not just a fan. No siree. I still call and vote. I may or may not yell at my television. But I always agree with Simon.

6. The only other television program I have to watch, is the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. It's an event people. I put a countdown on my blog for it. Oh yes I did. Talk all you want through the floats, yes, yes, I love the Kermit the Frog balloon too, but when the Broadway shows come on be quiet - Mama waits all year for this. Plus, when the man in the big red suit finishes the show, I've got full rights to decorate for Christmas. You wait until the next day? Slackers.

7. I'm a Monica. And after the divorce I'm a little bit Ross. Hmm... Guess I'm a Geller.

Have mercy! I miss Friends!!
I too am a "Gellar".
I'm not as neat freaky as Mon but her OCD on other stuff is so me. And Ross, well he trys.
I can not believe you sleep in your contacts!?
I can't even wear mine anymore,after I had the kids something happened to my eyes. They get SO dry and YES I've tried the new fandangled stay wet lenses.
I will however suffer through for family picture or any picture sake.
I wish I could love shoes. I was blessed with bunion feet which makes heels impossible for me.
But you GO girl! There are some darn cute shoes.
Hope you can raid your storage soon.
Thanks for that clip today! LOVED IT!

I love shoes, but flats. I run so often, that I hate to compress my toes, so I am a flattie. top and bottom!
Loved the video, its been so long since I've seen it. I loved that show.

I also like idol but I can't say I agree with Simon every time. He does make the show though.

I miss Friends. Why are there no wonderful shows like that anymore?

Hello! This is a great blog, missy! I'll try to remember to do the tag; I have serious memory lapses over things like this. I've been promising a friend I'd mention her blog on my posts, and I keep forgetting! But it's an honor just to be, well, tagged!

Your "I KNOW!" at the end made me crack up.

And, I voted this week for American Idol. Danny Gokey all the way!

Boy Mom said...

Hey there, long time no drop by, sorry! I put you on my blog roll so I'll see new posts.

Loved the Brownie story!

Prayers coming your way.

Heather of the EO said...

Love ya!

Loved these!! OOOh, shoes, I did a shoe post-- have you tried You by Crocs? I know-- crocs, U.G.L.Y., but really, these are super comfy, lovely HEELS! LOOVE my crocs ("Venice", in case you wanna google them). You are going to ruin your eyes. sorry, had to say it.

And #5, did you threaten NEVER to watch the show again if Tatiana made it any further? I did and I meant it-- I told the tv so.

My wish for you is that you'll be able to get to your things soon!!
Blessings,
J
