I’m it

Depressionista tagged me. Here’s the story:

1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Post the rules.
3) Share six non-important things / habits / quirks about yourself.
4) Tag at least three people.
5) Be sure the people you tagged KNOW you tagged them by commenting what you did.

1. This is the first time I’ve been tagged. In a year and a half of blogging.

2. I hardly ever shave my legs. I once went over a year. And I was 23 and single. I finally got grossed out when the hair started to curl. A girl’s got to have standards, no?

3. I love to return things. You get to buy stuff without spending any money. I call it “going returning.” It’s shopping bulimia.

4. The first time I French kissed a boy I was in 2nd grade. 2nd fucking grade. There’s a good chance I was wearing rainbow suspenders. We were both completely disgusted. I didn’t try it again until 5th grade when the cutest boy in 5th grade thrashed his sandpapery tongue around in my throat in my friend Florence’s camper.

5. When I was young my mother used to pick her nose right in front of us. She would seriously sit there digging away, always with her pinky. If you dared to make eye contact she just kept right on going. For a LONG time. Like nobody could see her. It was crazy.

6. When I was in high school I had a thing for older men. Like much older. While I was waiting tables at a Perkins Pancake House, I hooked up with not one but two cops. Yes officers of the law with a 17-year-old. Not at the same time and nothing major but still. Shortly after I went to Hawaii with my parents and had a fling with a 36-year-old (for reals this time). That I got away with that is a testament to the tremendous power of a parent’s denial. That I did it in the first place, well I don’t know what the fuck that means.

Hmm. Who hasn’t done this yet? How ’bout bri at unwellness, charlotte at dosmamas, and stefanie at baby on bored? I trust that you three will come up with some interesting shit. Possibly even disturbing.

  1. I did my part. But just know that I suck at memes. And why are they called that? I’ve never understood. Still loving your blog. It’s very RAW. Hey, are you watching Celebrity Rehab? It’s my favorite show.

  2. Wow! You are so cool! The leg hair thing resonates with me because right now it’s been something like three months since I shaved. There’s just no point when you’re not having sex with your husband and it’s wintertime. I love the one about your mom picking her nose! That’s hilarious! You sound like you have some interesting posts in there somewhere abou your past! Thanks for doing this, I love reading your blog. Hope the Z. is still helping you find a little sanity.

  3. I have to agree with Depressionista about the whole leg shaving thing! If I am not wearing shorts and I’m not giving it to my husband, what’s the point of hacking up my legs? Glad to know I am not the only one with more important things on my mind than leg hair! Love your blog and look forward to hearing about your successful pregnancy. Will be sending lots of Good Jujy your way!

  4. i thought about tagging you but didn’t because i thought you were too cool. seriously.

    my kids will probably say i picked my nose alot too. and theirs. hehe

    when i was in high schoo, i had a thing for older bald men. i love baldies, except it wasn’t cool back then.

    pretty good list, lady! i want details on the hawaii thing!!


  6. I apologize, I lurk but I dont comment because I wasnt sure if I had to sign up for wordpress or not. Does that excuse sound good? 🙂

    hahaha That mom nose picking thing just cracks my shit up! I can’t imagine how embarassing it was for you in your teenage years.

    I dont like to shop, but when I do I do it with the intention of returning things, because I hate to try things on while at the store. Weird

  7. here i am being bullied/guilted? into commenting… and i don’t shave my legs in the winter, my husband could care less- he’s still getting it.

  8. I am totally going to do it. There just seems to always be this BABY on me.

  9. I LOOOOOVE returning things. Sometimes I rationalize BUYing things with ‘eh, I’ll just return it next time.’ WTF??!?
