Oh yeah

I forgot, I was supposed to "tag" 5 people to also share 5 weird habits/characteristics. So, Adam, Amy, Aaron, Jackson, and Kim Jones, tag, you're it! :)

5 things...

Ok, so awhile back I was tagged by drmeans to post 5 weird habits/characteristics of myself. I know I'm quite weird, but it took some time to come up with the following items. Sorry for the delay, dr means. Here you go:

1. I am pretty much anti-condiment. I dislike ketchup, mayonaise, mustard, barbeque sauce, salad dressing, etc. My husband is also bewildered that I love peanut butter but hate peanuts! (rather, all nuts). I say it's no different from those that love ketchup but hate tomatos, but he says it's different.
2. I dislike belly buttons very much. I don't know why or when it started, but it makes me squeamish.
3. I have never had cable TV - ever. I was going to post instead that I went without having a TV for two years in college, but Adam though it was more impressive to go without having cable for a lifetime than going without a TV for a few years. Whatever.
4. I have been accused of treating my cat like a human being. I admit I do fall into the trap of anthropomorphism - that is, assigning human characteristics (and even speech) to animals. However, my excuse is that I'm practicing for taking care of our future child. Or something.
5. I am at the same time both a neat freak and a complete slob. Also, I highly value being on time but am often late. How I've managed to pull off having these contradictory characteristics, I don't know, but it sure creates a lot of havoc in my life!

There... how's that? I hereby authorize anyone else that thinks of anything else weird about me to add to my list. I know there's more... I am weird, I just can't think of any more examples :)

Ok, Ok, Ok!

So I've been told that ERAS HAVE GONE BY since I last updated... and it's true. I guess I just really haven't had much to say lately! Sorry guys. How about I post some (really) random pictures?

Isn't this cool? This is the little theater in the small country town my dad grew up in. I love that it's called the Majestic! Funny story: My dad told me that when he was a kid, the theater didn't have air conditioning, and so they would leave the doors/windows open for air. Well, directly in front of the theater is a train track, and anytime a train came by during a movie showing, they would have to stop the movie until the train had passed (because it was SO loud), sometimes several times during the movie! (He said this also happened at his school, which was on the other side of the street... the teachers would have to stop teaching for several minutes each time the train went by).

Isn't this cute? I took this picture at the Botanical gardens in Chicago this summer...

Adam and I took a recent vacation to San Antonio. No, this is not where we stayed. But I took this picture because I thought it was hilarious that underneath the sign that says "Hotel Robert E. Lee" it says "Air Conditioning." (And on the other side of the hotel it says "100% Air Conditioning"). I know it's hard to see from the picture, but it really does say that! How long now has AC been standard in public buildings and hotels?? :)

Adam and me at the new Bear Pit...

Family picture from Thanksgiving this year...

My wacky sister-in-law...

My desk at work... (in case you were wondering where I do all my blogging...)

Adam's desk at work, where he does NOT do his blogging...

Isn't this pretty? This is right outside of Canton, near my grandmother's grave.

My little cousins (actually I think technically they're first cousins once removed or something like that)

Adam and his cousin Victoria last summer at his sister's wedding...

Adam the weekend before our wedding... (actually I don't know if this actual picture was taken then but he did go cliff jumping the weekend before our wedding. I could just see him hobbling down the aisle on crutches...)

This is the actual ship where "Master and Commander" was filmed. We got to go on it when we were in San Diego last year.

Ok, it won't let me post anymore pictures, so I guess I'll stop now. I'll do some other random picture posting at another time when I have nothing else to say. That's all folks.
