Keep It Real

So I was tagged by Liz to "keep it real" who got the inspiration from Melissa who got it from Sheena. I contemplated breaking the chain. I mean, I reallllly didn't want to "get real" ::sigh:: but i'll throw myself out there.

  • I am deathly afraid of "weird voices" especially if you make a weird voice and it's dark. Dave thought it was funny when he realized this fear of mine until I started bawling. We had watched this movie, I forget what it was-- but one of the characters said in a low/creepy voice "Eve". That's it--->"Eeeeeve". Well that's when I told him how I don't like those types of things, and that is the night I crouched into a ball and started bawling after he tried to scare me later on. I don't like getting scared.
  • I talk in my sleep. Sometimes not just talk, but scream. I have nightmares a lot. I have woken up numerous times after I punched the wall.
  • Sometimes, doing something a little "mean" to someone else, makes me feel happy.
  • I smoke- I don't really know why, i'm not addicted (just trust me)- I just enjoy smoking.
  • One time, when I was twelve, my sister (who was 20) came to visit and I stole a pair of her thongs out of her bag because my mother wouldn't let me wear them. So I wore them once (btw, WAYY too big, I wasn't even fitting into a 00 at that time!) and then wanted to wash them, so I stuck them in my pants leg when Mom came to get my clothes, she found them in the dryer--and gave them back to my sister.
  • I will write notes over and over again until I am satisfied with my handwriting. In college, I would take notes in class then recopy the notes later that night--said it was my way of "studying"--i really just didn't like my handwriting.
  • I wish I could be anorexic, but I can't- I just like food too much.
  • I can only go "number 2" at my house. I always get nervous on vacation because I just can't go!--So instead of getting myself sick, I don't take long vacations anymore :)
  • I have a scar on my hand from a HUGEEEE wart that used to be there. I went to the doctor and got it froze off- and in the process of it dying (and taking its sweet time!) it filled up with blood so I put a band aid over it. Well to make a long story short some lady bumped into it, causing blood to gush out and got on her, and the floor...I was so mortified (because I was already self conscience about the wart) that I ran away, found my mom, and made her leave her cart with stuff in the aisle so we could high-tail it out of there.
I dare YOU to post a few "keeping it real" things about yourself!

I did this SAME thing, but in high school instead... I was way too busy with my social life in college... haha.

Same with me. I also always used to say God made it impossible for me to vomit b/c if I could, I'd totally be bulimic.

I love it! I'm the same way.

You are one brave woman! And, I love your blog. I arrived at yours through glamlifehousewife.

Hilarious. Simply hilarious. I love the part about being anorexic because I can't even count how many times I have told my friends I wish I could be anorexic but I just can't stop eating to do it. Weird and disturbed, I know - but apparently, you feel the same. :) HA!!

There was something else that I do, too but now that I am on the comments section I can't remember what it is. Great post!

You are one bold chickee...I'm too self conscious to reveal such details. I'd blab too many family secrets and start World War III.

I thought about you today as we traveled I-95 thru Richmond. We all love that big clock tower. Don't like the cigarette monument, though. What a landmark!

As for that cigarette thing, I gave that up before getting married because my to-be-husband did not like it. I was just following a pattern set by my dad, but I'd smoke the vanilla ones - and then get dizzy spells. Even though I didn't smoke that often, it still took a few years to be able to get over the cravings and in times of stress, I'd especially want one. After I became pregnant with my first child, I never touched one again, although occasionally I'd like to.
I'd reccomend giving it up while you can and saving the money for something much more useful - and not life threatening.
As for getting lost on the internet, it sure is easy to lose track of time and still be on in the wee hours of the morning. It's fascinating to leave your home without leaving your home. Make sure to set limits so it doesn't take over your time, I struggle with the same thing. Keep those daily devotions #1 in your life.
Just some suggestions from a friend who cares.
