filling in some blanks

1.   A nervous habit I have is     twirling my hair. Really, could I have picked a ditzier habit? Also, not that this is exactly a habit, but sweating. So if I'm ever really sweaty and acting particularly airheaded, you know why.

2.   Something that makes me sad is   the circus.

3.  Today I am thankful for    glittery fuzzy slippers, peanut butter, a particularly goofy husband, leaves that change colors, and the word particularly.

4. My favorite room in my house is    the bedroom - it manages to stay clean when the rest of the house isn't, has the best light, and stays the coolest.

5.  I can't stand  the music that plays on the closing credits of tv shows. It's usually a [in my opinion] creepy version of the theme song. I distinctly remember, as a kid, covering my ears and making a lot of noise so I wouldn't have to hear the closing credits to Sesame Street. I have the same sentiment toward music that plays over and over again on DVDs. I have no clue where on earth this hatred came from. 

6.  If I had an extra $100 to spend on whatever I wanted today I would   pay to have a professional pet hair remover come to our house. It's 30 degrees outside, Ike. WHY are you still shedding?

7.  The last person I hung out with was    my friend Laura. She rented the Kiera Knightley version of Pride and Prejudice so we would be prepared for our next book club in case time ran out. I tried SO hard to cheat on Pride and Prejudice the book with Pride and Prejudice the movie, but I felt guilty 30 minutes into the movie and had to stop. I much prefer being wooed by fictional characters through reading than through watching. If that makes me a nerd, so be it.


  1. I twirl my hair too!!!
    I think it is an anxious habit of mine also - I do it when my mind is racing. I don't think it's ditzy at all!!
    And I too would have someone come in and remove hair from my house too :) Two dogs and a cat = too much random hair all over the place!!!!
    Hope you're having a lovely weekend :)

  2. I'll trade your nervous habit for mine - biting/picking my nails. I'll paint my nails and as soon as I get a chip or if I'm nervous I pick it

    Does the circus make you sad because of the animals or because you don't like it? I personally am terrified of clowns so going to the circus has never been my thing.

  3. Yes! Stick with P&P the book. Sooo much better. And then watch the A&E miniseries version (though it will take you practically as long to watch it as to read the book) - I'm sorry, but Kiera Knightley is just not a good Lizzie Bennet. And Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy in the miniseries... dreamy.
