Nine Weird Things About Me

HolyMama tagged me for this. At first, I thought I would have trouble thinking of nine things. Now I'm thinking....only nine?

1. The pillow I sleep on is flat--really flat, quite worn out, in fact.
2. But I can't sleep unless I have a big fat body pillow against my left side.
3. I still like to sleep with a teddy bear.
4. I want the room to be absolutely dark. As in *no* light at all. No reflections. No lights on tvs that never go off. No lighted alarm clock dials. I'm talking dark, people.
5. I like to sleep in a cold room, winter or summer, under a pure cotton sheet and a home made quilt.
6. I am not an early morning person. Do not talk to me early in the morning. Even if I sleep until 10:00, when I get up it is still early morning, until I have had two cups of coffee with cream and a significant amount of time to actually wake up. Just because my eyes are open does not mean that I am awake and fully functional.
7. During the week I eat the same breakfast every day: two slices of crisp bacon, and an ounce of cream cheese.
8. On weekends I sleep late, and eat brunch, and then only one other meal that day. Brunch is usually an omelet with cream cheese, ham or bacon, onion or chives, sometimes olives, sprinkled with grated colby cheese, topped with On the Border salsa, and two pieces of buttered toast (low carb bread, please), one with lc orange marmalade on it. Oh and coffee. At least three cups. Or two cups of coffee and a cup of cocoa.
9. I am so serious about number 6 that Jeana's kids (my grandbabies) tiptoe around giggling in the mornings, saying, "Shhhh! Quiet! Don't wake up the MiMi monster!"
Which of course wakes me up.

I'm tagging Katie for this meme.

Great list! I'm glad this meme is going around. I'm having a great time getting to know people through their weirdness. (I did this one too and I'm as weird as all the rest. )

i'm so surprised at the regimented eating stuff! you seem so laid back, whatever, to me - i'd expect that precise of eating routines to be in keeping with.... hmmm... someone not as easygoing and fun as you are. very surprising. and ditto number one.

I am in awe of people who can do the low carb thing. I must have something to spread my cream cheese on. Do you use it like dip for your bacon, or just eat it by itself?

Faith said...

Too funny. My oldest son just saw my pillow the other day and said "why even have a pillow?"

Kelsey, it's not that I just love eating that way--it's more like....variety is not something I am prepared to deal with early in the morning. I eat the same thing over and over because that way I don't have to think about it. Wick cooks my bacon when he does his, and I can manage to chop a chunk off the block of cream cheese, almost with my eyes shut. Thinking about food, actually making decisions about what to eat, and how it is to be prepared, comes much later in my day ;)
Kelli, I just eat it with the bacon.
