I had a dream....

...this morning. I was in a huge white, airy, windows-opened room swinging from a swing that was attached to the ceiling. i would kick off with my feet on one side and with my hands on teh other. I was thinking about what I would blog about today. When i got off the swing, i was sitting in front of a laptop (i dont' HAVE a laptop...ooooh, weeeird!) and the subject of 'habits' popped in to my head.

The only habit i could come up with was snapping my gum when i chew it becuase all my others were too mortifying to admit to. But as i awoke, i thought of more: (don't cringe honey...i'll modify, i'll modify)

I pull loose hairs from my head in teh shower and stick them to the wall. No lie. Sometimes i make shapes out of them if i'm bored.

I leave my empty packets of splenda stuck in coffee drips on my counter.

i throw my shoes in a pile in my closet. (you guys know WAY too much about me)

I smoke very expensive cigarettes when i drink. i know: disgusting. But smoking is the funnest habit - i just wish it weren't so nasty and smelly...

i leave my wet laundry in the machine long enough to get that horrid smell so i have to wash them again.

i totally squeeze from the middle.

i leave my cabinet doors open all the time (thanks Jodi)

I burp in public much to my boyfriends dismay.

I do everything in excess.

okay..that was not so much fun.

today i'm giong to test out some paint for my kitchen. Here's my blank palate i get to work with: (notice the almost un-workable green tiled counters?)

and here's my inspiration:

what are some of YOUR habits...?

First off you are so stinking honest I can't help but love you... Its the truth, sharing is key so here it goes.
I throw my clothes on the floor when I take them off and hardly ever pick them up till laundry day...
I tend to stop listening when people whine, even when I want to hear what they say...
I don't shower enough, after a long day a work I'd rather sleep than be clean (my wife makes me most the time but I hate it)...
I pick my nose...
I pick at my scabs...
Okay thats the only ones I can think of I'm sure there is more...

what a cute kitchen! i love it! so airy and sunny! have fun!

i totally burp in public as well! it embarrassed my man a lot at first, but now i don't do it as often so i hope maybe it's not as bad. but yeah, when we first met and he thought he might start to like me, he said to himself, "but she has red hair and burps a lot" . . .

speaking of hair, my hair falls out in the shower too and i stick it to the wall. only now we have a clawfoot, so no wall, just one big shower curtain. hair is harder to stick to a shower curtain, that's for sure!

read about some of my other bad habits here.

Oh and I love your Ideas for the kitchen those colors are great you could always retile, its tough but you could do it yourself, and it would be under 500$

Call me crazy, but I like the green counter tops! :)

I have NEVER heard of the hair on the wall...but if I have a big 'ole haucker (sp?) I definitely get that out in the shower!

Let's see...what else...
I pee in the shower
I am a nose picker, but I try to be inconspicuous...never in public
I smoke too much reefer
I don't wash my face or brush my teeth before bedtime
I never iron my clothes

I, too like the green tile.

I criticize myself (and sometimes others) too much.
I have conversations with my dog.
I stare out the window of my office wishing I could go play in the sun... for long periods of time.
I sing (very loudly) in the shower and car.
I always wait until the very last possible day to do laundry.

My jaw is out of alignment. My most annoying habit is clicking my jaw. You wouldn't believe how loud it is. I do it when I'm on the phone which drives people nuts.
I also crack my knuckles. I've been doing it since I was a kid and now they are big just like my Mother said would happen.
I would like to see you do a post about guilty pleasures. I bet you have a few!

oh bummer...i never even thought YOUR bad habits would remind me that I, too, had more!

the nose picking. That's when i have all my good ideas! something up there must inspire me...

Mmm..scabs. i shoulda been an esthetician (sp?)

I talk to my dog too. i've been doing it so long i forgot it was even a habit!

Note to self: Never get a claw foot tub. I'd be lost if i didn't have my "easel"...don't kid yourself. your husband is secretly elated to have a burpnig red-head...i'm pretty sure it's every guys fantasy, right PFC??

Lazy before bedtime? My random zits are proof of that!

i have a a clicky jaw too Veggie babe...TMJ. yay.

i'm rotissering zuchinni for lunch. i was gonna get rid of it since i dont' eat meat anymore but forgot i had the veggie basket...cool!

Blogger tabitha jane said...

mmmm zucchini.

nope. my husband really hates it when i forget to take the hair out of the shower with me and throw it away. it really grosses him out.

but he is gross too, so i guess we even each other out somehow.

Blogger Tanya Kristine said...

that's funny...my boyfriend (sorry hun) has some not so pretty habits too. but he's WAAAAAAAAAY shyer than i, so i won't reveal them here in a world wide blog.

that zuchinni was frickin unbelievable! wow...and i'm no fan of squashes either. except butternut. and only when it's loaded with butter and brown sugar :)

To dream that you are on a swing, represents an expression of great satisfaction and freedom. It also symbolizes cycles and movement. Alternatively, it signifies a desire for sexual variety.

To see a swing set in your dream, indicates memories from childhood. You may feel a need to escape from your current responsibilities and relax.

To dream that you are swinging, suggests that you are going back and forth in some situation and need to make up your mind.

I find you bold earth shaking burps at work refreshing. In a strange way I think that it is attractive trait for a woman.

Farting, thats another story. Nothing says dates over like ripping on at dessert.

I thought my mom was the only one who did that hair in the shower thing. Weird. If I damage a nail I cannot stop nibbling at it until it is smoothed over. Who doesn’t talk to their dog? I also like the green tile. Have you thought of a light blue for your kitchen? Bahee – how much reefer is too much reefer? Never knew there was such a thing ;) And I probably smoke and drink too much. Especially smoking seeing as I "quit".

Hi there! I gathered from your post on my sisters blog where she slanders me all day that you would like to see what is on mine! Here it is!
Have a nice one!

Oh dear god, here goes.

I pick my noise.
Bite my finger nails.
Pick my toenails.
Talk to my dog.

I also do this weird chanting in tongues thing when I'm trying to remember something, for some reason it focuses me. I've been doing that for years and mom asked me on more then 1 occasion if I was a satanist lol.

I -still- pick at my lip when I'm nervous.

I shamelessly pull the underwear out of my ass in public.

I correct peoples english/grammar far too often.

I usually have a stokepile of empty popcans on my computer desk and don't remove them until I have to make room for yet another pop can.

Thats all I dare to confess to atm, and I can't think of anything else but doubt I would say anything even if I did lol.

I can't wait to see the finished kitchen! And I love that bowl!

Let's see.....whenever I get a sunburn I have to peel the skin when it starts to peel because I can't stand it.

And I can chew through an entire pack of gum (12-18 sticks) during hte course of a workday.

You're so funny. Come see my kitchen. I still need help with the colors. My bad habits?
Flirting, flirting, flirting. I always see how far I can push the envelope. Then I get in too far and feel overwhelmed and wonder "How the hell did that happen"?
I've been accused of raising the art of whining to a religious level. I'm the bishop but not the pope. Oh well, something to shoot for.
I didn't realize picking your nose was a bad habit! I love it when I get those big, furry, egg sized ones out. It kind of goes along with the ear Q-Tip digging.
I'm lazy but I rationalize it. That's a BAD habit of mine.
I'll fart in elevators (silently) and see the reactions. :)
I have sex with sheep...oh..this is the wrong blog site...never mind.

Blogger Tanya Kristine said...

heh...heh...NOT my real brother!

kidding. he's my bro and he does not have sex with sheep. although he probably would if the door was closed....

my kitchen would be easier if i took off all the doors. my kitchen will look like pee wee's playhouse if i paint it all those colors...too many crevices to paint. i'm trying to get dena over here but she's too busy.

Bad habits??? Well, I'd never. YEAH SURE.

1. Fastfood
2. Soda
3. having to look in EVERY mirror I pass, even windows. Gawd, I'm so vain!
4. being vain
5. and BURPING like a truck driver. I can NOT help it.

I could go on forever, but I'm already depressed, I don't need to kick myself while I'm down. ;)

BTW, Love the kitchen. So cute! I'll post a pix of mine.

Blogger Tanya Kristine said...

I used to do that too Valerie. in fact, my boyfriend lets me sit whereever i'm facing teh mirror. not that i look THAT much and i certainly used to do it way more when i was a size 6. but that's funny.

truck driver you say? we will never be able to go out together. two is too much to handle.
