Lara's "weird" sister

So, my uber-cool little sister Lara:

has blogged about her weirdo personality traits.

As her sister, I can safely say she's got NOTHING on me, LMAO!!!!! I'll save some of the more "out there" ones for another day, but here are some easy ones:

~I hate hate HATE for anyone other than me to load my dishwasher. Drives me so crazy that I will reload it after a "helper" has loaded it for me. And by "helper" I don't mean a two-or-four year old helper, I mean my husband or mother-in-law :X

~I am adamantly opposed to children's movies being sad. I edit the movies HRH and the Hurricane watch, lol. I swear, my kids are going to grow up like Phoebe on Friends, they think that Finding Nemo starts at chapter 3, where Nemo wakes up yelling "First day of school!!!!"

~On the rare occasion that I have cash in my wallet (don't ask.... I pay for everything with my debit card. It works MUCH better that way for me. Cash is like Monopoly money to me, it's play money. Blown easily at Starbucks, Taco Bell, whatever), the bills all have to be face up, right side up, in ascending monetary value.

~I hate feet. HATE them. I don't want to look at them, don't want anyone to touch me with their feet, etc. The only exception is baby feet. And my children's feet. And HRH's are starting to skeeve me out. The very thought of pedicures, which most women ADORE, repulses me.

~I am the boogie nazi. I can't stand for my girls to have yucky noses, or even sleep in their eyes. They, after a lifetime so far of this, must have clean noses and eyes when they wake up immediately.

That's about it for now. Surely that's plenty for you to feel a little better about YOUR idiosyncrasies. I know Lara does ;) And as far as how our family "brownie is baked"? I think brownies are ALWAYS better with nuts!

I'm with you on the cash in the wallet. I have like $60 on me right now, which is an astronomical sum for me to carry. I use my debit card for everything, even coffee! And yes, all bills must be in ascending order, from front to back, with the fronts facing forward, nothing upside-down, nothing crumpled, crushed or wrinkled. If for some reason I put cash back in my wallet in a hurry, I have to find a place to sit down or pull over and fix it all before I toss my wallet back in my bag. So no, I don't think you're weird. :-)

So funny! I actually have a foot phobia , too, but surprisingly I like my own feet and baby feet.

Lara said...

OMG! I am exactly the same with my dishwasher!!! And I love your idiosyncrasies. They only make you more fun. You're the wittiest, remember? Or was it prettiest?

Lara said...

And thanks for calling me uber-cool. I don't think I am at all, but I like how you chose a photo of me with a drink in one hand, my phone in the other, no make-up, a hat on because I just don't care about my appearance, and an indie T-shirt, ratty skirt, walking barefoot on the beach. I guess I do look kind of cool.

Oh, P.S. I know you don't look at the actual website for my blog, but if you did, you'd see my uber-cool "weird" playlist to accompany my brownies blog.

LOL!1! LOVE your list! I am the same with money facing the same way, in order! And I don't like feet either.. except baby feet! $20 in my wallet? I'm rich! I use my Upromise card... have over $1500 for the kids' college acct. just by using it & paying it off every month! :)))

Oh my gosh...I am so right there with you on the debit much cash here.ever. I have used my debit card for a $2.00 drink before, for cryin' out loud!

Oh, and the foot thing...same here!!!! I hate feet too. Plain and simple. I have never had a pedicure just because I don't want anyone else touching my feet. Pathetic I know.
