8 Funny Things About Me

Posted on

I thought it would be funny to let you guys in on a few of the sillier things that I do…just because I always sound so serious about shit. 🙂

1. When my son was small I used to burp just to make him laugh. When he’d make rude noises I’d make a huge deal of it…just because he’d giggle til he turned red. 🙂

2. When I was a kid my mom cut off all my hair and when I went into the girls’ bathroom at school, all the girls thought I was in the wrong bathroom, still one of the most embarrassing moments of my life.

3. When I was a very small kid (far before I had any markings of a girl) I used to play baseball with my shirt off just like the neighborhood boys.

4. I’m notorious for giving gifts early. I buy them and immediately want to give them, and sometimes I do. Prime example: My son has his birthday gift already…and his birthday is the 12th. 😉

5. I like books on cd. Shut up.

6. Sad parts of shows and movies choke me up..but I hide it well. At least I think so.

7. I like old timey shows from “back when things were simple” like Andy Griffith, Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C., I Love Lucy, Perry Mason…

8. I watched Sabrina..and liked it.


Well, eight was all I could think of so that’s what you get. 🙂 Enjoy and hey, share some funny things about you too!


What the Hell is Going On?

I was going to write about dream analysis here for you today but I’m not quite ready to write a full post on it yet, still got some digging/research to do.

I have been dreaming about death a lot lately and I don’t know if it’s got anything to do with what’s happening on the news or not but last week I actually dreamed about monsters for the first time I can remember in my entire life. I’ve had scary dreams but I don’t recall ever dreaming about monsters like that before, it was spooky I remember it still.

Then last week another time I dreamed about death though I don’t recall the details. And last night was a doozy.

I was on a subway so I’m going to assume I was in New York for some reason and there was a guy running around with a gun shooting at people. Maybe that’s normal there or something and I was channeling a native New Yorkers dreams or something but it spooked me.

What the hell is going on?


Help Me Retrain My Brain

“Old habits are hard to break.” Truer words were never spoken. I’ve quit a lot of things in my life and some of them were harder than others, some I ran to quit as fast as I could, barely noticing their absence.

If any of you, like me, have ever tried to quit smoking, you know – it’s a lot harder than saying you’re going to do it. So if you didn’t pick up on it yet, I have a few habits to break and even a few things to make into habits. Breaking and making habits is a good thing, it indicates evolution in life, that things are changing and you are embracing them. Quitting smoking was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but frankly it was kind of easy for me. I started hating myself and the way that I smelled several months before I actually quit. I had gotten a good whiff of myself on the elevator on my way into work one day and was thoroughly disgusted. Thoroughly. But I kept on smoking for a few more months and finally quit after Christmas that year. I had to get through the holiday crap. You know how that is.

However, once all that was over, my resolution for the new year was to quit, and quit I did. So now I have to face that I need to change more about me, I’ve got some Me Tweaking to do and I need your help. It’s been 7 years since I quit smoking, and I may have forgotten how hard it is to quit things and start new things. I am going to buy a membership to a gym tomorrow or Saturday, I unfortunately had to put it off for two weeks from the last time I talked about it. Two weeks ago I was very excited and I still am, but I could use your support and suggestions on getting through the first two weeks that it’ll take me to make a new habit of this workout routine. The other habit I’m trying to take up is eating better. I’ve sort of started but I can’t say that I’m totally committed. Yet.

Now for the habits I need to break. This is hard to admit, but I bet it won’t surprise you. I talk before thinking. A LOT. So much so that it’s beginning to cause problems in my life and I am not about to let that happen, I don’t like to be the problem maker, I like to be the problem solver. You knew that right?

So I need your gracious tips, tricks and advice on this new journey of self evolution. If you notice me falling off the wagon…will you encourage me? Tell me to get off my ass and get to it? I wanna live forever and eating better and working out will help that. I also need to shut my mouth a lot more. This I think will be the hardest task because I’ve been doing this most of my life.

You’ll help me won’t you?

When the lightning flashes, this is NOT what you want to see.

Taken by a crewmember on an oil rig, meaning to snap a photo of lightning, there was an added feature when the light hit the sky!
