this was written yesterday eve ..
however, the rain is still here .. no thunder though ..
the ceiling fan is on again...
the coffee is hot.
another storm this saturday eve...
the windows are open..
the ceiling fan is on..
cool, moist air circulates throughout the house ..
i might have a glass of wine later ..
ricardo had tagged me a while ago, a no pressure kind of tag .. ten truths about myself .. and don't worry, i never tag anybody specifically. playing along is up to y'all ... do it or don't do it.
es macht nichts .. :-)
and, as usual, much of this information will fall under the category of TMI .. so you have been warned. ..
1. turn offs: whiskey breath turns me off .. ech ..
drunks with whiskey breath turn me off..
drunks with whiskey breath combined with pot breath turn me off..
a coworker who comes to work with the lingering odor of whiskey breath just pisses me off....
and y'all probably know what profession i'm in.
other things turn me off, but i'll not go into those .. :/
2. turn ons: being patient, being patient with others, being patient with me ..
being gentle, being gentle with others, being gentle with me ..
a dry sense of humor, harmless banter, a quick wit ..
many other things turn me on, but i'll not go into those .. :)
3. i can be gullible. i may not always understand innuendos. i puzzle over them.
4. i have a terrible sense of direction. i also have bad night vision. getting lost at night is not my favorite things to do .. :/ ...
5. i don't think of myself as a romantic person but that doesn't mean i don't appreciate the occasional gift of nice chocolates, a nice bottle of wine, the occasional sander or needle nose pliers (my absolute favorite tool) .... which reminds me .. i borrowed my sons needle nose pliers just recently .. i have to return them.
6. i've never cheated on past boyfriends or my husband. i've dreamt about it a couple of times though .. not even that long ago ... nothing actually happened in the dream, but nonetheless, i woke up feeling appalled, utterly horrified with myself ... and then so very relieved that it was just a dream. at least it wasn't the dream where i wielded a big butcher knife that had human blood dripping from it .... but don't worry .. i think i only get those knife wielding dreams when i'm pmsing .........
it's a good thing i'm not a sleepwalker, i suppose .. :) ...
7. mmmm .. what else ..
oh, speaking of pmsing .. tsk .. i still pms. you would think that a woman in her very late 40s would have the good sense to be at least perimenopausal or menopausal, but noooooo ... i had my hormones checked .. nothing wrong with them. i'm not perimenopausal..... which is a drag .. now i can't blame anything on being perimenopausal anymore. ... and to think that i could still get pregnant ..
8. i just sneezed .. oops .. again!! ...i have some minor spring allergies going on here ...
which reminds me .. one of my favorite flowers is the echinacea ..
9. what else ... oh, i don't like diamonds. it's not that i dislike sparkly things, but i don't like the diamond monopoly .. de beers .. it's a fairly common rock, but the control and marketing make it appear to be so exclusive when it's not. actually my favorite rock/gemstone is hematite.
10. i loath shopping for clothes. actually, i don't have many clothes. well, this is compared to mother-in-law and sister-in-law who believe that a woman can't have too many clothes or shoes. i don't go very often and if i do find something that fits i'll purchase it in different colors that suit me. i wear what i have until it falls off me practically. just last week with great regret i realized a favorite shirt could not be worn to work anymore. it had torn because over the course of 15 years the fabric had just gotten thin.
11. let's see .. oh, yes .. about sex .. how i like it .......
oops .. that's #11 already ..
saved by the number 11 .. whew .. ;)
don't y'all feel lucky now ..
