The 5...

well, the ever cheeky, yet thought provoking LeLo has dropped the meme gauntlet for me re 5 strange habits...being the oh so overanalyzing,self-judger(is that even a word), i have worked myself into a bit of spiral of neuroses as i have been whittling down my list to 5...but here it is...have made it tame for the general viewing audience, believe me, babies i have stranger ones...please note, these are listed in no specific order of importance nor bizarreness:
  1. when i wish for a snowday(hence a day off from work) i am very specific about the date, which school it should effect and just in case there is a more than one school with my school's name, i am precise about the location...part of this process also includes needing to make the wish in my head...it cannot be said outloud 'cuz i may jinx it... and it must be done at a minimum of 5 times and each time i wake during the night...now mind you, this habit only applies to the winter months.
  2. specific, upon-rising morning routine must be the following and cannot deviate or i am thrown off for the whole day; squeeze mikey in some mannerand/or kiss his back, head directly to fill the cat's food bowl, change her water (and this is so difficult b/c i usually have to pee like a banshe but i must do this first...remember order is important...and then the damn running water just makes it almost unbearable),turn on shower,pee, brush my teeth, jump in shower. note this is the abbreviated version and pertains to those things which i believe i cannot alter lest the sky will fall our at least i will have a shit-ass day (no, i am not OCD, got it...just like ritual, that's all)...also, this applies only to work days...i do allow variation on vacations and weekends...
  3. not make eye contact with armored car drivers...it all started as a joke with my friend kelly and now it is just a given that you are to avert your eyes lest they be trigger happy and shoot you.
  4. douchey nicknames/made-up words......i have this insane need to make up words b/c i feel that they better define the action i am in the middle of or the way i feel about the person i am speaking to...those who know me best understand what i am referring to and they tolerate it...i don't say really dumbass things like"hey sunnybunny"...sometimes they are more like sounds, but the one i seem to be most fond of is buzzhie(yeah, cuz that's not dumbass or anything)...mikey always thinks i am saying budgie, which makes me nuts b/c clearly, i am not...that's a bird for christ's sake.
  5. google news search kevin lowe...at least once every other day and/or visit the edmonton sun website as i have had this obsession with edmonton, since i was 11 and began my subsequent lust for hockey players...i know,i am so super cool...
k, lelo, there it is,somewhat odd but rather tame by all accounts... i have a job to preserve...now it's your turn mikey, inky, bretty and any of my other dear ones who dare to share...hopefully more risque/interesting strange habits will be shared by you others...
