Navel gazing for Chicklet

February 7, 2008

in Uncategorized

Chicklet tagged me, thereby saving me the hard work of thinking of a topic to write about. Her answers were great, so go on over and read about Chicklet. Then come back to indulge me.

The rules:
1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Share six non-important things / habits / quirks about yourself.
3) Tag at least three people.

Now you can witness my navel gazing (which may not be quite as fun as naval gazing):

1. I like to sleep in an L-shape. As much as I love sharing a bed with Roger, I secretly delight when he gets up an hour or two earlier than I do. Then I can stretch out my legs while lying on my side, usurping his formerly occupied sleeping space.

2. I am drawn to other things that start with L. We adopted through Lutheran Family Services. The lady who does my taxes is named Linda LaLxxxx. My kids go to a school that starts with “L.” Even thought I’m right-handed, I prefer the word “left.” Ls are luscious.

3. I hate having my hands dirty or yukky. I wouldn’t mind having them hermetically sealed.

4. I classify colors as “boy” colors (blues, greens, browns, blacks, greys, purples) and “girl” colors (reds, oranges, pinks, yellows, whites). When I was a small child I thought everyone had the same schema , and I was surprised to find they didn’t.

5. I have lived in Japan, Syria, and Spain. I have visited Egypt, Jordan, Oman, France, Germany, Andorra, Lebanon, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Israel, Mexico, Canada, Turkey, Cyprus, Italy, The Vatican, Costa Rica, and the Bahamas. And I’m not in the military.

6. Apparently I think in 5s.

Japan was a post-relationship cleansing. The rest have been teaching and traveling with my adventurous husband.And I always carry wet-wipes.

Dirty hands kill me. And as a teacher, collecting homework from kids with grungy, ink-covered hands…even worse :-)

I’m an L-shaped sleeper too, only I have forced my husband to become used to my throwing a leg over him at night…the poor schmuck.

Wow, is there a particular reason you are so well traveled? For work reasons, or just pleasure?Oh, and as for the wiping issue mentioned on my blog — we’ll see how it goes. I just gave this ultimatum yesterday, and so far we almost had a clogged toilet with flushable wipes. I may back down, but I’m trying not to. Unfortunately his personality sort of dictates the push to do it.

The L’s totally crack me up. And I’m with you on my hands, I particularly hate stuff under my nails.

Eeeek! I’m not sure I know 3 bloggers to tag; and you’re one of them! Does it need to be bloggers that know me; do I need to have posted on their blogs?Oh the responsibility. Oh the humanity.

I love your categorization of colors. As a child, I did the same thing with numbers — most odd numbers were boys and even numbers were girls, though there were a few exceptions.

I too, like to partake in the L position. Isn’t it the best when you can stay in bed for awhile when the other person gets up in the morning?

I am such a bed hog, that my husband fell in love with the body pillow I got that I thought would help me sleep better. Why did HE fall in love with it? Because I put it between us and it keeps me from kicking him.

L’s are luscious. and i definitely went by your color scheme for a while except for purple, which was a girl color.
