Hilarious

My one Spanish teacher friend showed me this video and I was dying laughing. It’s fantastic. I’ll post it here in honor of my other Spanish teacher friend, who also teaches music and ESL. He and his lovely wife, btw, have a blog of their own that I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned here before. Fishers of La Paz. They’ve just moved their life and family to Bolivia! Check them out and enjoy their journey. 🙂

In honor of you, Tomas! And I’ll work on Bald Man to get that other video up and going, soon!

Baldman and I are sitting here watching The Real Wedding Crashers. Man, we wish this show would’ve been around when we got married! That would’ve been sooooo fun….

My Quirks…

Or, “There’s Going to be a Tagging! There’s going to be a Tagging!” (That alternate title is for you, babe.)

Sheila tagged me for my weird habits. The rules as stated at her site:

  1. Post a blog with your six weird habits/ things as well as the rules/ instructions;
  2. Add to your blog a list of your six victims to be tagged;
  3. Leave a comment for your six victims that says “You are tagged! Read my blog” (but you cannot tag the person who tagged you).

What Sheila failed to notice (or, um, just didnt’ cuz it’s not that obvious) is that I really don’t know that many other bloggers! She tagged pretty much everyone I would tag. So, like most chain letters that I receive, the buck stops here (a phrase I’m using so very far from it’s original intent. Ah well…).

Here are my weird habits or traits or other such stuff:

1. I hate buttons. They creep me out. Yes, buttons. Yes, those little plastic disks with holes where the thread goes through to keep it attached to your shirt. I don’t so much mind them when they’re actually attached to a shirt. It’s more when people have a jar or something of them sitting around. Might as well have a jar of eyeballs sitting around. Yuck.

2. I hate wiggly teeth. Ewwwwww. And my oldest knows it and she tries to wiggle her loose teeth at me. And her friends know it and they try to wiggle theirs at me, too. HATE it!!!

3. I love the squeak of basketball shoes on the court. Someone was talking the other day about how they can’t watch the sport because the squeaking drives them nuts. I love it. I played in high school, and so it’s a bit of a nostalgic sound for me. Maybe one of these days I can join a league and make a few new sqeaks of my own.

I got stuck at 3, so here are Bald Man’s and Jackie’s (one of my closest friends for 20+ years) suggestions (Jackie really needs to start her own blog so I can link to her and cuz she’s funny):

4. Bald Man says that I’m gassy, and the fact that I’m not embarrassed about it is weird among women. (FYI, I’m embarrassed enough about it to have given it a second thought before typing it here. Then I thought, “Really? He thinks I’m gassy? I’m not sure how he would notice with all the tootin’ he does around here.” So, I think he’s just trying to lay some of the blame on me. That’s okay, I’m strong, I can take it.)

5. Jack says, “Have you gotten down that you can’t leave the house on time becuz you wander around with keys in hand and coat on looking for other things to do?” Yeah, I do do that. (“do do” also for you, babe. Consider it an early Christmas present.) My kids are used to it now. They know Mommy having her coat on has no direct relevance on actual departure time. Poor kids and their warped sense of time. Who knows what they’ll think when someone tells them they’ll get to them in “just a minute” and they actually do!

6. I’m a bit OCD when it comes to checking the locks on the house. I have to check and re-check them. I won’t have a bedroom on the first floor of a house. I only did once, for a year in college, and I hated it. But that might be because I suspected some of the neighbors might have been on the sidewalk by my window dealing drugs. Anyway, I won’t sleep with the windows open, either. Not even if they’re on the second floor. Not even if there’s a 20 foot drop beyond the window. Just can’t do it.

Hmmm….I am a bit odd, yeah? Ah well, you all love me, anyway, I know it. And thanks for that, by the way. 😉

Extremely high gusts of wind knocked out power to some areas near us the other day. Really, it was the windiest weather I’ve witnessed in quite awhile (of course, I haven’t been to Shetland recently 😉 ). So, I guess the latenight weather guy was justified in his comment, but the 12 year old boy-like sense of humour I possess just couldn’t stop laughing when he said, “Mother Nature really blew her winds at us today!” Seriously, I couldn’t stop laughing. Or resist saying, “Dag. I hope Father Nature had a nice big bottle of Febreeze handy!”

Sad, I know. I was laughing even now just typing it up.
