I was tagged by Miss Jenny over at oldbagnewtricks to share seven weird things about me...there's something like this that I've actually been wanting to do for awhile, so I'm gonna play the game but switch up the rules a bit (hope y'all don't mind).
In one of my favorite movies, Amelie, the director plays a little game to introduce his characters. It's called "things I like, things I hate". It's an incredibly charming way to get to know these people, and each time you see someone new you hear about them in this way...Now I'm going to play the game and give you seven things I like, and seven things I...don't like (hate is fine for the movie, but I don't know, my mom never let us say that word when we were growing up so it just feels a bit too strong...whenever that word slips out today I kinda look over my shoulder like, to see if anyone heard).
Here we go:
I like: watching television shows and movies at least three times, because usually I'm doing something else at the same time so I don't catch everything until the third go, when I'm really paying attention.
I don't like: chipped nail polish - on me or anyone else!
I like: looking through books/magazines and tagging everything that inspires me with a sticky note so I can refer back. I also used to go through catalogs as a kid and circle everything I wanted. Not that I would get it, but it was very satisfying : )
I don't like: unpacking my suitcase after a trip.
I like: warm towels and sheets straight out of the dryer.
I don't like: food that is messy and/0r falls apart when I'm eating it. I usually whine to Forest about it and will stop eating mid-meal if this happens.
I like: making lists and lists and lists of things to do, buy, make, etc...
I don't like: pictures of myself from a windy day when my bangs are being blown sideways or sticking straight up. Also don't like walking in wind and having all my hair blown back away from my face. Actually, I'm gonna go ahead and say it for this one - I hate this. Don't tell my mom!
I like: organizing the clothes in my closet by color - white on the right, moving through the rainbow to black on the left.
I don't like: when other people's faces get too close to mine (husband excluded)
I like: riding the carousel at an amusement park or fair and finding the horse I like best.
I don't like: sleeping in my bedroom when I'm home alone. It's too far from the front door and I get paranoid. Usually I sleep on the couch when Forest is away.
I like: fluffing up the feather comforter and falling back onto it so it envelopes around me..then taking a nap there : )
I don't like: catching someone looking at me on the street when I know I've just made a weird face. So embarrassing!
So there you have it. Wasn't that fun? If you want to play along, do it and tell me so I can see! If not, that's OK too. Here's a photo from my most recent ride on the carousel at the carnival in Santa Barbara Friday night..kind of a let down besides the girl time I got to have with my good friend Jessica and of course, this:
