Because I give the people what they ask for

So as gret and I were discussing being the queens of bob evans (i needed to blog about that, the rudeness, the free meal, the altercation and the subsequent really long email to corporate) I realized i do sort of have that "noblesse oblige" thing going on. In spite of yet another high level anxiety day, complete with tears and low grade attacks and bloody noses from little boys way to young to have bloody noses, I owe my people funny. Or weird. Or something at least stabbing at the area of entertaining. I think we all feel a little better when we have a nice long laugh at me n'est pas? So thankfully, my new blogfriend (who is regional which is exciting!) Mistress of the Dark tagged me! I think ive done this before but really? Can we ever really know all the weird things there are to know about me? I like to think of myself as a cornicopia of weird. I cut and paste the rules. Because MOTD has rules on hers.

Rules: Each player of this game starts off with ten weird things or habits or little known facts about yourself. People who get tagged must write in a blog of their own ten weird things or habits or little known facts as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you must choose six people to be tagged and list their names

Ten Weird Things About CRSE:

1. I just spent approximately 25 minutes blowing through a straw into the face and hair of a nineteen month old. It just kept getting cuter and funnier.

2. I am completely inept at putting band-aids on myself or anyone else.

3. I am horrific at regulating the heater/air conditioner in my car. Im horrible at regulating temperature in general.

4. Im ridiculously obsessed with Rockdog's Kirby Carson story To the point that i think on my way home, oh i hope he wrote about kirby and not sue today. This is Rockdog's attempt at Judy Blume.

5. I just found out tonight that escarole is actually an edible lettuce acceptable in salads and not just a decoration lettuce. Apparently there is no such thing as decorator lettuce.

6. Ive been doing family work for so long that it is very hard for me to watch anything on television (true or fictional) involving families without analyzing their dynamics.

7. Im not rotating the vegetables in my refrigerator in an efficient manner. I realize this is going to go badly for me but the rotation task seems so overwhelming I just give in to the entropy of my fridge.

8. By the same token, buying fruit has become this weird exercise in futility. I buy the fruit. The fruit goes into the fridge and then it goes bad. Then either gretchen or dan throws it away and I forget that the whole cycle happened. So cognitively? For me it is: Buy fruit. Black hole. Buy Fruit. Black hole. over and over again.

9. There is a huge dresser vanity over the only window in our bedroom. We have always covered our bedroom windows in every place we live so we sleep better.

10. Slapstick comedy makes me highly uncomfortable.

ok now to tag six of you: Pippa, Canada, Jennfactor, Trix, Luckybuzz, and of course....crawlspace.

Me-me me people!

escarole is quite tasty, especially in italian side dishes with beans. Yummy.

Decorator lettuce. Straw blowing (because I *know* how cute that must have been). Fruit cycle (which I also do).

Couldn't. Love you. More. :)
