10 More Random Things.......

It's my blog, I can talk about myself all I want. So there.

1) Even though I'm a strong, independent woman, I love it when MM calls me "Baby". I have no idea why that is, but I get all gooey inside when he says things like, "Hi baby, how was your day?" or "Sleep well, baby, I love you". *dreamy sigh*

2) Washing dishes soothes me. I'm not sure if it's because it so mundane I don't really have to think while I'm doing it, or because it's a familiar task or what, but I'm always relaxed after washing dishes.

3) When I'm really, really pissed off, I clean. Not just like minor cleaning, either, but deep down, on your knees scrubbing cleaning. My house is generally pretty clean, anyway, but you can always tell my mood by how hard I'm scrubbing the kitchen floor.

4) When I'm irritated about something, I prefer to blast Disturbed, Nine-In-Nails, Godsmack, Metallica and etc. I think the destructive lyrics and heavy, dark music helps me vent in a healthy way, so when I'm done listening I feel better.

5) I'm afraid of Tweezers. Yes, tweezers. Nothing bad happened to me as a result of them, it's just...they're scary. Have you looked at them? They look like a torture device. Plus, think of the damage you could do with them if you didn't use them right. EEK!

6) When I'm in the bathroom I get bored just sitting there, so to amuse myself I practice my telekinesis skills by staring at an object (i.e. hand soap, paper towels, extra rolls of toilet paper, etc) and try to move them with my mind. It hasn't happened yet, but I'm working on it.

7) This might be considered TMI, but I'm going to tell you anyway. You know how in romance novels whenever the woman gets off she always sees stars, or floats out of the universe or visits a new solar system? Well, I see an apple cottage. It's dark red brick with a window that has apples as a border on the glass. Is this retarded? Yes, I'm sure that it is. But it's what I see every single time. Don't ask, because I have no idea.

8) You remember that teddy bear I sleep with? Well, it was actually a gift for my sister from one of her boyfriends a long time ago. I stole it because she didn't want it and I sleep with it every night. Does that add a certain squick factor to my snuggling with it, I wonder?

9) I get more hits from this post a day than any other. That really says something about the state of the world, doesn't it? Tis good! ha ha Oh, and if you do a blog search for "the rat bastard", my blog pops up in the first 10 of 18,920. That, too, says something. I just don't know what.

10) I get premonitions sometimes, too. Like when my Nana died, I knew before anyone else did. And I almost always know when someone close to me is pregnant. And 9x out of 10 I know who's calling before the phone rings. And if I think of a song I want to hear, most of the time it will be the next one to play on the radio. Stuff like that. Not that I'm psychic or anything, but I guess my intuition is better than most.

Ok, that's all for now. Look for more boring, retarded interesting things about me later. I'm sure I'll have more to share as time goes on.

LOL! Dude, I love it!

The one that cracked me up the most? #7. Are you serious? An apple cottage? Hehehe thats priceless babe!

Oh and when you get #6, be sure to let me know, because I totally wanna see you move things with your mind! Hehe.

Isabel said...

An apple cottage??? All righty then you freak. lol.

And tweezers?

Lori said...

Apple cottage? Interesting...

And #1? I totally relate. Even after 22 years, my hubby still calls me babe. I totally dig it.

Holly said...

Yes, I know, the apple cottage thing is weird. I have no idea where it came from either. Strangest thing that's ever happened to me. Maybe it's my happy place or something.

Yes, Isabel, Tweezers are scary. Very scary. Have you really looked at them? I'm pretty sure some 80's B movie horror character used them to dig someones eyes out once. If not he should have. Torture, I tell you.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Sometimes I feel silly for getting all squishy when he says it, but I can't help it. I wonder if he feels the same way. I'm going to ask him later and see. :D

Rosie said...

I have a Cromagnon Caveman eyebrow I can't afford to be scared of tweezers...although I do manage to get the catepilars waxed on a semi-regular basis now.

The Apple Cottage...I'd love to see what a therapist would make of that. In the meantime we will all probably tease you about it. Can't wait to share that one with the guy I live with.

CindyS said...

Damn. I wonder if I can move stuff with my mind. Probably not seeing as how I can't get my ass out of chair by just thinking about it as it is ;)

I love when Bob looks at me. Just looks at me and says something I'm not expecting. Sometimes he'll look at me with a smile and tell me that I'm the best thing that has ever happened to him and we'll be sitting in the middle of a drive thru or TV show or something completely unrelated to his revelation. After 11 years, I find the endearments not as special because I love it when Bob actually uses my name.

Okay, well, I guess I've never closed my eyes because I've never seen anything! But then, an apple cottage. Interesting, wonder if it's a premonition of something ;) I'm going to close my eyes next time and hope I don't get blasted by an image that would scare me from every having an orgasm again!

10 - I don't get it as strong but I do love it when I really want to hear a song and turn on the radio and it's on. I also have a very strong sense of deja vu which makes me wonder how it really works. I also think I can sense people who have passed to a certain point. I will take that one to my blog and see if I remember to post about it.


Jane said...

You are very strange. Very. Apple cottage? Do those even exist? Outside of your strange fantasies? Of course, if you were a Lynn Viehl vampire your scent would be apples.

ames said...

LOL Holly. Great random list. I'm the same way with the radio, if I want to hear a song, it comes on the majority of the time. AND if I think long and hard about a book I really want, I'll find it at a thrift store.

We're so special, eh? LOL

Kelley said...

Apple cottage?? LOL.

I love it when I read a book and the hero calls the heroine baby or something like that. My heart does littl flips in my chest. My hubby doesn't say things like that! I need to show him this post. Hehe.

As for the dishes. I hate doing dishes. My daughter loves to help so it makes it go by a bit quicker. Sometimes...actually it makes it take longer but its more fun.

Rene Lyons said...

Your such a freak. Love ya.

The Book Girl, A.K.A. Jodi said...

I think you are perfectly quirky - i've been known to be a bit of a quirk myself...except for the apple cottage thing...I would rather see something more like an Italian villa...with a maid! Now that would be complete extasy!

Beta Fishy said...

My goodness Holly, I never knew that Hot Men were a vital link to your blog. I have really been negligent in my knowledge of your blog's inner workings. I am very sorry!

mm said...

If you would like I will let you see the apple cottage any time you want.

Holly said...

Thanks honey, you're the best.

Holly said...

I understand about the eyebrow thing...I'm Italian. I just wax, though. No tweezers for me.

I have Deja vu happen to me all the time, too. I agree about the looks, too. I love the smile MM gets on his face when he first sees me. It makes me all warm inside. :)

Yes, Jane, I know. I have issues. *sigh* Apple scent? I'm glad I haven't read Lynn Viehl.

Yes, yes we are. And not in that Short Bus way like Rene, either. *snicker*

I love when I read that in books, too. Well, unless it's over done. Then it just irritates me. LOL

I let my kids help with the dishes sometimes, too.

Love you, too, babe. =)

A maid sounds quite lovely. I'm going to work on that. LOL And I think quirky is good, for both of us. :)

Naturally hot men are key to my blog. Something would be wrong with the world otherwise. :)
