All About MeMe

Ok, this started Monday and it's now Tuesday. So I'm a little late! What else is new.

What is All About MeMe Monday you ask? Well go check it out at Adventures of Wanna-Be SupahMommy!

And now for something completely different 5 quirks about me!

1. Everything has to be just so when I go to bed. All of the lights have to be out. So when my daughter decides to wake up just as I want to go to bed and wants her lamp on, it drives me nuts! And the funny part is, I sleep with the tv on. Last time I checked, there were lights in that! Closet doors have to be closed. Maybe subconsciously I fear the Boogie man, but whatever the reason, they HAVE to be closed!! And my blankets....yep, they have to be just so. My comforter has to face a certain way. I've discovered the bottom smells like feet (ew and gross!!!), plus it doesn't feel right. I also have a Beatles blanket. Those 4 men have to face the same way I am or else!

2. Sandwiches have to be made a certain way. Well, at least those with lunch meat on them. The meat and mayo go on one side and the cheese on the other. Mayo CANNOT touch cheese!! And when I eat said sandwich, I eat the crust first and work my way towards the middle.

3. I do not like ice. Either give me a drink with a straw to please my inner child or don't put ice in at all. At my last job, there were a few women who would eat ice. Just ice! Hearing them crunch on that ice was like nails on a chalkboard in my mind! I have the shivers just thinking about it!

4. Spellcheck was created for a reason! I know everyone makes mistakes and I can guarantee that my spelling isn't perfect, but that's why there's a button to check it for you. Use it!!

5. I saved the best for last! And that would be my lovely sense of humor and witty sarcasm. Growing up I thought everyone had the same sense of humor and used sarcasm as much as me. I guess because my family and friends shared this behavior with me. Well, now I'm all grown up and on my own (shed tear here). Apparently, a lot, and I mean a lot, of people do not find a good sarcastic comment amusing. Here's a story for you.....

I took my kids to the park one day this summer and one of my daughter's friends was there with his brother and their mom. It was really hot that day. This mom had 1 water bottle, but when both her kids wanted a drink, she said one could drink from the spout and the other could drink from the bottle. Her reasoning was one boy just got over being sick and she didn't want her other son to get sick. That's understandable - no one likes a sick kid. After she explained this to her kids, I said "It's ok, they can share. It builds up immunity". Let em tell you , if looks could kill. I wouldn't be blogging right now! I found it funny. If you didn't, then just ignore #5.

So anyway, there's my 5 quirks. Maybe you just learned something new. I know I did and that's the fact that I am not normal. But if I was, I wouldn't be me. Take it or leave it, but I'm not changing!

Until next time.....

Why hellloo Evonne! You nutty lady. Your 5 quirks confirm it... sorry lady.

Sarcasm should have a font.. in text right? And sarcasm should come out of your mouth in red letters... so that all who are not saracastically gifted... can be in on it.

Sarcasm and quirky humor are inherited traits. It's in our genes (and sometimes our jeans).

These are so funny!! So, during pregnancy, I was a huge ice chewer. I know! I don't do it so much anymore but every once in a while, when I am presented with some really great ice (those soft pebbly ones) I can't help myself! :)
