SIAD Part Two

I had a really good day today. Logically, it shouldn't have been, given that we were at work until after one cleaning up after the customers. Early this morning, definitely in "Why on earth am I awake???" mode. But that's okay. Because I let something out to someone that maybe I should've a long time ago. But after I did- well, I realized a few key things. And among them was that it was a great day. A happy day.

This concludes the mushy-gooey-hippie section of today's post. Now on to the answers I know you're all dying to hear.

1. My ears turn red when I get sick. Oddly enough, this is true. I've never heard of it in anyone else, but I think it's rather cool.

2. I sleep with a stuffed bear. Totally false. It's a rabbit. Named Max.

3. I have an imaginary friend named JoJo the Disgruntled Elf. He likes to run around shopping malls with a machine gun. Oh, JoJo is definitely real. He's very, um, therapeutic too.

4. I memorized the Monty Python Dead Parrot Sketch. Nope. Not verbatim.

5. There are two light switches in my bathroom- both to the same light. But I have to have the light switch on my side be right- up or down when the light's on or off, respectively. Like Joe said, this one's too weird not to be true.

OK, now you're just confusing me: is JoJo real, or imaginary? And don't say "Both"...

Okay, so I was right with my assessment on #2, but I could have sworn that you would have memorized Monty Python's sketch.

My ears get red when I blush or get embarrassed. Luckily, when I wear my hair down, no one knows.

Miss Nettie Belle, Anything can be true...

You can tell when my daughter gets sick because her eyes look weird..They get red and sick looking. So when she says she is sick, you know she is sick. She looks the part.

Hmm, 3 out of 5. Great, I got a D-. The real imaginary elf thing just doesn't seem like you though.

You are a "mushy-gooey-hippie" Republican! Mushy-gooey are both fine Republican values. But... hippie? This won't do. :)

I smell chocolate chip cookies when I'm getting sick. Hubby's eyes get all red and weird looking about two days before he gets sick. Both things are like an early warning system. We can actually get ahead on work and get loose ends tied up before symptoms really hit.

I love the phrase "mushy-gooey-hippie". Or is it a word.

OK, I don't even think the lightswitch thing is weird. I KNEW that one was true, because I do the same dang thing with the light switches in the laundry room. The one closest to the hall better be in sync with the light (up/on, down/off) or the universe is just NOT RIGHT. Yeah.

LOL...you so crack me up girl! I like your disgruntled elf...mine is a wayward pixie.

My son's ears get red when he's sick too. Usually from fever I think. He doesn't sleep with a teddybear or stuffed rabbit. He sleeps with his wife.
My two adorable little yorkie puppies, Toodles and Tildy cuddle with me to sleep.

Your blog is so much fun...I'll bet it reflects you to a "t"

Well, when I get sick, my appetite grows manifold. My mom stares at me amazedly when she sees me craving for any amount of food, which I normally would never have had, if I were not to be sick !

I LOVE you for memorizing that monty schetch.

Hey ##NAME##! Just thought I would write a brief note pertaining to ##TITLE##. I usually lurk, but your post caught my eye while I was looking for info on Yorkshire Terrier Puppies. My focus is generally Yorkshire Terrier Puppies, and while this is not a perfect match, I liked what you said. Like I said, I usually lurk rather than comment but I couldn't help sympathize. Thanks again!

Well now, ##NAME##, I'm holding you personally responsible for making me think today. I really wasn't planning on it! I was lurking around Blogspot for stuff on Yorkshire Terrier Puppies and I ended up on your blog. More specifically, on your post ##TITLE##. I figured I could get away with out thinking at all today, but along comes your post! Can't say I agree wholeheartedly, but against all odds you got me thinking! Thanks for the wake-up call ;o) .

It's in fact very complicated in this busy life to listen news on Television, therefore I only use internet for that reason, and obtain the newest information.
