5 bad habits

Oh yes, I have bad habits, and while they can be annoying, good things often come from them. In other words, while I may need to watch these bad habits and keep them in check, there isn't necessarily a reason to drop a bad habit. ;o)

1) I need to control my very spontaneous and intense happiness when a song comes on the radio, and Wifey is driving the car.
It has happened a few times (okay, maybe a few more than what most people would consider "few") and Wifey's heart is usually in her throat, because she thinks she's about to hit something or someone with the car. Apparently my "OH!" while jumping in the seat next to her can be confusing when we turning out onto the highway. My bad. But it certainly makes sure she's completely awake and aware - even more so than she would normally be. You're welcome, babe!

2) I bite my nails. Not all the time and not intensely, but I do bite my nails. Often it's if I'm either stressed out about something, or I'm watching a scary/interesting movie or reading a book, and I'm not aware of it at all really.

The really bad thing about this is the fact that I cannot stand the sound of other people biting their nails. I mean, I REALLY can't stand it. The hairs on the back of my neck stand, I grind my teeth and my pulse increases dramatically, while I fight the urge to yell "Would you STOP that, you psychotic freak!" I'm sure I look quite psychotic, when I try to restrain myself, and I've never actually verbally - or otherwise - attacked someone. Wifey is the only person who knows how much I detest the sound, so she's always aware which really calms me. However, she's also the one who likes to point out - a bit too much - when I'm biting my nails. But hey, as a gay girl, I can also point out to her that usually she's very happy I don't have long nails. Touché!

Not a gay girl...

3) Procrastination! Oh yes, it's a bitch... YouTube and Google, I blame thee! However, I also love thee. A LOT! And while procrastination is a bad and stressful thing in the long run, I have also stumbled across a lot of brilliant things in my attempts to distract myself from whatever task I actually had at hand and should be getting into.
That's how I have found several brilliant shows and movies, but also, I've found websites and people that have come to be a wonderful part of my day and overall joy in life. So really, it can't be all that bad. And it's how I found out about the TV shows "Mistresses", "Skins", "Los Hombres de Paco", "Las Aparicio", "Pretty Little Liars", "Glee" and many more. Shows that I had heard of, but didn't know to watch and probably wouldn't have chosen to watch, since I already have a billion other shows I like to watch.

4) I watch a lot of TV. I have learned SO much from it; Languages, knowledge about history, biology, people, music and life. So to sum it up, I watch a lot of TV. Always have, always will. I heart TV. Period.
I really do!

5) I also love movies and music and spend obscene amounts of time watching, listening and going to the Movie Theater or concerts whenever possible and relevant. But my bad habit is that I don't read enough books. And in that respect, the gay internet really hasn't helped me much, because it is taking a lot of time away from reading more books. But I LOVE the gay internet, so I guess I'll just have to find time elsewhere. Maybe I should just give up sleeping? Then again, I'm going on about six hours a night as it is. I love to stay up late and get up early... make the most of every day. I just love life and all there is to experience too much, I suppose. And that's hardly a bad thing!

I wish you all a beautiful weekend.

I miss Jack... and Karen

I apologize for the lack of updates, but not only has work been crazy - wonderful to take some time off during the summer, but then when you get back to work it seems you pay for it ten fold - I also have a million projects I'm working on.

Unfortunately this blog is a "Want to do" and not "Need to do" (as in I get paid for it), and so it suffers... I am sorry for this, but I never do forget my blog or those sweet people that send me comments and encouragement. So this quick impromptu post is for you all.

Just now - I mean two minutes ago - a Madonna song (Express Yourself, for those wondering) stopped abruptly and right in the middle. Wifey and I are both working on various projects, and the music is playing from her computer, so she quickly blurted out "I didn't do anything!" just as I started going "NO ONE interrupts the queen of...." and then I realized I was using one of Jack's ("Will and Grace") lines so I quickly went to my dear friend YouTube and found the clip. Here you go:

Also, just for good measure, here's a little "Modern Family" - just to keep in mind that while I miss Jack and Karen (and also Will and Grace, though the two supporting characters were the REAL stars to me), there are some great new shows out there as well:

Don't be a stranger... I'll try not to be either. ;o)
