At Stella's request...
I am equal parts jock and girlie-girl. This makes for a interesting wardrobe and vocabulary.
I want to be well traveled and own a house on the coast.
I wish my relationship with my mother was different. Oh, and that I had one of those locators for my keys.
I hate the smell of pet food. I avoid that aisle of the grocery store for fear the stench will knock me out. Also, thongs.
I miss vacations that last an entire summer.
I fear I have been too wasteful in my life.
I hear "Penelope" by Pinback.
I wonder where I'll be and what my life will be like at 40, 50, 60....
I regret quarter-assing those college courses which almost got me bounced and my commitment to my orthodontia treatment...I mean, treatments. Oh, and waiting so long to get a tooth fixed that I landed myself with a root canal, siphoning buckets of cash out of my wallet in the process. Like a tax return sized bucket.
I am not a phone person. I tend to get distracted with stuff around me. I need eye contact.
I dance during the commercial breaks.
I sing made up songs to popular melodies because I can never remember the lyrics. People "love" this about me.
I cry usually at one point during Grey's Anatomy. Usually when wearing a face mask because Sunday nights are my "nights of beauty".
I am not always prompt.
I make with my hands pretty decent calligraphy for a person who's never taken a calligraphy class.
I write to get these thoughts or funny stories or inner monologues out of my head. And if I entertain someone in the process, that's gravy. Really, really, great gravy.
I confuse effect and affect, no matter how many times I look it up. It's just one of those mental blocks.
I need to find some level of humor in a situation. It doesn't have to be "funny ha-ha" -- ironic, absurd will do. Like the time my car got towed because I had about 900 bucks worth of parking tickets and I thought it had been stolen? Or the time I got my car impounded with my boss's kid in the car - a kid I was babysitting? I found humor there believe it or not. This ability keeps me sane.
I should find a little religion on the saving money front.
I start many books and then drop them, which forces me to start all over again if/when I ever pick them up again.
I finish other people's sentences when they are stuck searching for a word. Or even sometimes when they're not.
