The 10 Random Things I owe to 'Roo.

I can't not do a 'tag'... I especially can't not do one from 'Roo. .. my friend who talks to me for hours - just cause, who never makes me feel worse about mentioning Hooters at a business meeting, who reminds that I have much to be proud of, and Roo, our friendship is definitely one of them.

So... 10 Random Things ........

1. I can't wash my face without brushing my teeth, and I can't brush my teeth without flossing them first. These things have to go together, I have tried to talk myself out of this stupid compulsion. I'll make it to the couch after washing my face and I'll sit there unable to focus on anything until I get up and floss then brush my damn teeth.

2. I hate brussel sprouts., and I don't like you very much if you're trying to talk me into liking them, so just stop that crap.

3. When I go on a road trip somewhere, I have to make two lists. The list of things I can do right now (meaning the day before), and the list of things I have to do before I walk out the door. If I forget to put something on the list, I will write it down just to cross it off.

4. One of the things on the list is always, 'buy twizzlers'. My car won't go without them, I swear.

5. I just recently discovered that I love jalapeno peppers.

6. I shoplifted exactly one time, when I was about 13 years old. I (tried) to steal (read: I got caught) a bookmark from a Christian Book Store. (This still makes me laugh).

7. I recently surpised a friend I hadn't seen in over a year. She was so happy to see me she cried. I will remember the look on her face when she first saw me for the rest of my life. I will not wait so long to go see people who love me ever again.

8. I have not been running enough and I *hate* the way the absence of running makes me feel.

9. I don't love the beach... but this summer, I think I'm going to make some of my best memories there.

10. With my tax refund this year I'm buying deck furniture and an automobile GPS Thingie. I figure I'll always be able find my way home, and I'll have an awesome place to sit. If "W" gives us additional money - I'm defnitely going to spend it frivolously, I'm outstanding at that.

Happy new week people.

2, 3 and 5.... i could have put on my list.
I love talking to you. I just wish we could do it in person, with puppies and while moving our running shoes.
I might have been heard randomly saying, "damn. jen's hard core..." at least a half a dozen times this weekend.

I love this! Especially about the stolen bookmark! That's simply priceless. For the record, I hate brussels sprouts and love jalapenos.

No Celery Please said...

While Brussels Sprouts are mildly less odious than Celery... they are still on the list of THINGS I WILL NOT EAT.

Compulsions are weird. I floss AFTER brushing. Something in my brain would probably pop if I tried to do it BEFORE.

I'm glad you're giving the beach a chance. :) Yay to spending frivolously! ha ha

tiff said...

You floss before you brush?


Love the list, esp the last one. I agree that any rebate should be spent frivolously, perhaps on buying 100 galls of water and dumping them in the street or something.

oh shit, jen. water balloons. water balloons for the beach.
hot damn.

I floss afterward, cause the dentist said so.

I'm just like you at #3. I have put stuff on the list just to cross it off. Is that obsessive, or what?

I'm with you on the list, the brussel sprouts, and the spending.

I like the idea of nice deck furniture, C. I should buy a nice lounge chair or two for my deck as well. Oh, and brussel sprouts are nasty!
