Ancient History

Follow Me?



Thanks to the other Gretchen and Paula for tagging me with the quirky meme.

1. I am terrified of bees, lightning, and gasoline trucks.

2. I don’t like white, spongey foods: cheesecake, cream cheese, cottage cheese, tofu, feta, Miracle Whip. Ick. I can tolerate cream cheese if it is completely melted and the flavor is disguised by heavy amounts of something spicy. See the recipe in the previous post.

3. I can’t use the exposed toilet paper on a roll. I have to unroll it one layer, throw it away, and only then can I use it. If there is only one layer on the roll? A nightmare I try to avoid.

4. School Picture Day turns me into a woman far worse than the most meddling, controlling, insane, vicarious-living Pageant Mom in history. I think it’s because I did not have one decent school picture during my entire childhood. And I always buy the cheapest package because they are such a rip-off. Like I am going to spend $100 per child for pictures taken in a school gym. It makes no sense. Tomorrow is Spring Picture Day (which is crazy because when I was a kid, there was one picture day per year). I am going to do my best not to care about cowlicks.

5. I hate the word womb.

6. When I am tagged for a meme, there is only one person I pass it to.

Smooches, baby.

  • So what would happen if lighting struck a gasoline truck that was surrounded by a swarm of bees? End of the world I’m guessing?

    These were really fun to read.

    You have a cool camera and mad photo skills. Ditch school photos. I did last year and I feel so FREE! And little bit richer.

  • I hate the word “moist” and “flesh”.

    How about flan? Are you unfortunate enough to be familiar with it? It makes me shudder. Apparently it’s considered a “desert” by some people, but all I can think when I see it is “phlegm” not “flan”.

  • I hear you on the tp thing, although not at home. If the is any coming out of the dispenser I have to throw it away. I wish my mom wouls have been more like you around picture day. It was usually the day she would decide to cut my hair herself.

  • LIGHTENING! The one aspect of earth science that terrifies me to the core. So glad not to be alone in that.

    School pictures – bleh. I agree with Heth – you take awesome pictures of your kids yourself. Forget the goofy school pics and just do a shoot in your backyard.

  • I love memes, they always reveal the most random stuff.
    So with you on the school pictures thing, every single one from my childhood is terrible so now I get all weird and wonky with pictures.
