Seven Things.....

I was supposed to tell 7 things about myself when I picked up the flower bouquet the other day and it was a hellish week so I am just now responding.....hopefully to be back in action again......

1) I love to eat and think that if I wore a burka I would quickly gain 20 more lbs. Getting to hide behind all that fabric? I'd totally go for it. That's one reason sweat pants are dangerous. Too much room for growth...

2) When I was a kid I had a 'Lauren Hutton' gap I could spit water through and b/c of it I could also whistle in class without ever being found out. I got braces (for it and an overbite) but probably wouldn't have bothered as I got older...

3) I am a lone wolf and require some 'down time' every day to be alone and recharge my batteries...

4) I have a phone phobia -- hate to talk on the phone -- unless it's LD or I haven't talked with the caller in awhile. It's not bad once I actually answer -- which I never do, drives Excy crazy, since he fields calls (hey, just let the 'electronic butler' do it but a ringing phone is his kryptomite) -- my cell phone is kept in the car for emergencies or last-minute calls and I have to look up the number for people if they need to call, I use it so seldom...

5) My guilty pleasure for crap food are those Hostess cupcakes with the chocolate frosting and white icing. I have to avert my eyes when I pass them in the store...and for some reason, when we make road trips, I require cherry flavored Blow Pops, though I spit them out as soon as the flavor is gone...

6) I'm a snob about people using a toothpick - just hate it. So I carry dental floss in the car and my purse...

7) Dogs make me nervous. Can they read my thoughts that I don't much care for them? My grandmom's dog bit me when I was five and I guess ever since then, making dog friends is an effort...

Those Hostess cupcakes should be illegal!

I love hostess cupcakes too! Also ringdings!!

My husband says I was born with the phone attached to my ear!

The nostalgic McDonald's crunchy apple pies were my weakness. The soft ones that exist today are cool but the crunchy ones ruled. I can resist Hostess.

What are your feelings about the floss picks? I can no longer use traditional floss without help so I carry the floss picks with me everywhere. However I'm a snob about which ones are best. Different manufacturers...

I did not like floss picks but have learned to use them since I too hate toothpicks and need a bit of help with flossing...

I loved the rest of your list, and could relate to the need for alone time and hating the phone. Happy weekend, sorry to hear the week has been hellish for you.

I loved your post, and can relate to most of them, except the dogs and here in England, the ATM only gives you a minimum of £10 when you only need £5!
That's the way the Bank makes money!

I don't like talking on the phone, either. I will also just let it ring and it annoys Hubby.

Mrs. Baird's Cinnamon Rolls are my downfall.

Thanks for sharing today!

I'm the same way with phones. I was so happy when e-mail was invented.

Chris said...

Ding Dongs were always my favorite. (Don't say it.) They changed them sometime in the 80's and they weren't as irresistible to me after that.

I share your phone phobia. Caller ID and Caller ID on television are the best inventions ever!

And for snacks... nothing beats a Hostess HoHo in my book!

(Word verification is coughtip... which came up as I was coughing... cosmic!)

Ditto the toothpick! Gotta have one myself but, please, no public teeth picking!

Jayne Martin said...

So with you on the phone thing. Especially when it rings after 7p.m. I will screen it in case it's an emergency (and it damn well better be to cut into my wine-consumption time) or my God-daughter who is the only person I'm happy to hear from anytime. Thank God for e-mail. I'm such a bitch. I do love dogs, though. They can call me any time, too.

Sandy said...

I hate the telephone as well. When it rings at night, Paul and I look at each other and say....It's your turn!

wendy said...

Well, since I am relatively new to your blog, those were fun things to learn about you.

I don't like cats ---they freak me out.

and I hate phones too

Love your list! I HATE talking on the phone and even little dogs scare me. Hostess cupcakes (or Ding Dongs) are absolutely at the top of my list. In fact, sometimes I think Hostess is a food group! PS. thanks for visiting yesterday. Read an update on my son @ http://crazyisjustrelative.blogspot.com/2009/10/one-year-down.html
and thanks so much for asking! Have a great Sunday :)
