Does This Make Me Crazee?

In celebration of her 100 posts, Juls over at Everyday is a Crazee Day, wants to see just how crazee I am. This is what makes me crazee:

1. I have to distribute my food evenly when I eat. Meaning, I chew my first bite on the left side and my second bite on the right. Call me crazee, but I think it's helped me avoid cavities. Dental balance!

2. I'm terrified of the dark.

3. I still get a little nervous when I flush the toilet because of that movie "Alligator" that came out in the 80's (remember when the alligator ended up in the toilet).

4. I put sugar in my grits.

5. I hum when I read.

6. When people cough or sneeze in my presence I hold my breath as long as I can as to not inhale their germs.

7. I hyperventilated after witnessing the birth of my niece.

8. 90 degrees is a comfortable temperature for me. Anything less is cold.

9. I hate the smell and taste of mint. Gum grosses me out. If you are in my car chewing gum or eating something mint flavored, be prepared to be asked to leave. Being in a confined space with mint makes me want to call it quits.

10. Ever since I saw the episode of Golden Girls where Dorothy was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue syndrome, I've been convinced that I have it. Either that or narcolepsy. Speaking of Golden Girls, am I the only one who has seen every episode more than once and can actually quote full dialogues (not you, Christie.....I know you're worse than me)?

Okay Juls! You have exposed me for the crazee person that I really am. I expect you all to accept my craziness and embrace your own. Are you crazee too?? Well head on over to Everyday is a Crazee Day, and play along.

I love it....I love it... Dental balance? What in the world?!?, you are crazee girl! Golden girls rock!
Alligators, sugar grits, and germs...oh my!

crazee people make my world go round!! Thanks for playing along!

Right there with you on #1. Every bite must have an even and equal "counterbite"

And even numbers of m&m's...of each color. or I have to bite one in half.

I could continue, but I won't ;)

LOL! You are so funny! It's why I love you! I congratulated Juls on her 100th post yesterday. I think my whole week of blog posts just showed how crazee I am! This was a great list. did not know about the dental!

Crazee? Not at all. Well, maybe a tad... the mint thing is really crazee.

Golden Girls! I don't know if I could quote full episodes, but I've seen my share and love love love them. They never get old. Figuratively.

Fun post, Joan.

FYI I have the mint thing too! Everyone thinks I'm nuts! And I prefer it hotter than colder, I sweat my hubby out all the time! I feel so much better knowing someone else has a mint thing!!!

Shanda March 28, 2009 at 10:30 AM  

I totally do #6!!! (& encourage my children to as well!)

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Oh I love reading the craziness of others! Let's see, I agree with the 90 degrees. My friend calls me a rock lizard. I love that you love the Golden Girls. I think they rock, in so many ways. Gum chewing grosses me out, but not because of the mint flavor. It's because people find it acceptable to chew it and sound like cows. And the pop it. Incessantly. Thanks for helping us (or just me) feel a little less crazy.

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) March 28, 2009 at 10:53 PM  

Oh you are just crazee enough to make me want to start following you!

Alicia March 29, 2009 at 3:35 AM  

Oh my gosh...I am the same way w/ peoples sneezes!!!!!!! Nothing grosses me out more! I'm not kidding, I was in Party City the other night getting balloons for a baby shower. Well, as I start to walk down an aisle to check out some decorations, this man on the other end turns his head to sneeze!! I'm like, "Why didn't he at least cover his mouth?" I stopped in my tracks! I did want to walk through his germs, and worst SMELL IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ann March 29, 2009 at 7:36 PM  

I can relate to so-o-o-o many of these. So, if you're going crazee, take me with you :->

kel March 29, 2009 at 7:48 PM  

ok yeah... those do make you crazy.. but I like crazy.
wait, you hum when you read? AH! That would make me nuts!

from the desk of March 30, 2009 at 9:52 AM  

i love the idea of holding your breathe when people sneeze or cough. i think i will definitely steal that idea.

thanks for your constant encouragement and love on my blog. just think without your gentle pushes, i wouldn't even be a blogger.

Great post! I nearly died laughing at the Golden Girls reference. The vision of you watching that show and then self-diagnosing is really too much.

Did you notice that something has been missing from your blog? It might have appeared around the time I stopped commenting? I’m sorry about all that. I took a little hiatus from the blogosphere, but I couldn’t stay away too long. After a break, I had to come by again and see what you’ve been up to.

Glad that I did.


PS: Thanks for the birthday love!

Ha! The Golden Girls....they were some hip chicks. And I think the chewing things makes perfect dental sense, :)

Dental balance is hilarious! I am afraid of the dark. I didn't know until someone pointed it out to me while in college.

Shanda April 1, 2009 at 4:03 PM  

Hey Girl!
I hope you are having a wonderful week - traveling still?

I left you two awards on my blog today!


Juls April 1, 2009 at 11:43 PM  

Congrats, you're the crazee winner...Yes, mirror mirror on the wall--Joan of All Trades is the crazee'est of them all! :) Pop over to my blog to claim your prize! :)

Hysterical! I was traumatized for years after watching Rikki Tikki Tavi and the snake was curled up by the toilet. Glad I'm not the only one with toilet phobias.

Hey, I thought I was the only one who did the whole food balance dealy. I actually have to put the same number of M&Ms on each side. And, if I only have one I usually bite it in half and chew half on each side. So, maybe we are both a little crazee.
