11/9 A meme from anne

anne challenged me to think about my quirks, and then to list them. This isn't as easy as it sounds. On her blog she wrote some cool things. But my quirks aren't as much fun.

1. I'm not a good roommate because I like my own bathroom. If I ever get married again (slim chance), we'll have two master bathrooms. Someone told me recently that their marriage has lasted so long because they have two master baths.

2. I'd rather play games with my family (brothers, sisters, inlaws, outlaws, children, nieces, nephews, my own kids, and our friends) than with anyone else. We have so much fun together.

3. The person in the mirror isn't who I am. I know this beyond a shadow of a doubt. That old, fat woman is someone who is stalking me.

4. No matter my age or situation, I must have adventure in my life. Boredom is my enemy.

5. Performing has always been an important part of my life whether it's singing, acting or doing comedy. I absolutely love ComedySportz--it's fun, people are crazy, boss is wonderful, and I get to perform. What's not to like? I do have a fantasy of sending my headshot to a casting director I met in LA. I mean, Kathy Bates has to be busy sometime, right? They'll need another um... woman in our demographic.

6. I really really really really really really like being smart. It's not bragging, because it's a result of genes, God, and luck. But I love it.

7. I'm so curious it's scary. While I wouldn't snoop in anyone's "stuff," I do want to know everything about everything. I'll check on the internet, get a book on the subject, ask a lot of questions, whatever. I like to use the word "curious," because I hate the word "nosy."

Okay--these are the first seven of my thousand quirks. Hey, Bron and Strange David, I think you both would have interesting lists.

curious. oh, yeah. i've just recently realized some might call it nosy! the neighbors built a huge garage last year, but they still park on the street. WHY? i want to know why. if i'm in a new town, i have everything figured out fairly quickly. fun places to go. eat. see. how to get there. i know more about the place in a week or two, than many of the people who live there. i have to sniff it out! i can't imagine not doing that, and not caring -- but maybe that would actually be nice to not give a shit. nah.

For a writer it's a good thing. And am I ever glad. My nosi..I mean my curiousity has been with me forever. As a little kid I woke up really early every day because I was afraid someone was going to have fun without me, and I'd never know about it.

OK I'll bite... have just updated my whole blog!!

Funny thing about bathrooms -- in our new (to us) "Little House of Retirement" there are two bathrooms. One is the original full bathroom with tub & shower and the other is a smaller one with a shower stall. That one has become my hub's and the full one has become mine. Having one's own bathroom is definitely an excellent idea. Absent that, an accommodating roommate and incense matches work for the short term!
