The Rest of the Meme

Yeah, it's been awhile. It has been hella cold here the past week and I don't want to do anything but wrap up in wool blankets and warm socks and sleep. Well, there's another reason all I want to do is sleep, but I don't want to go there. Not yet, anyway.

So the rest of the meme:
Weird Thing #4
I sleep in the exact middle of my bed, in between two pillows. I started doing this when I was pregnant with the DD. I had just come home from the island and even though it was summer, I was cold. The pillows there help seal out the cold air that wafts in under the sheets, and back then when I had a baby in the belly, it was so difficult to find a comfortable position to sleep in. Now there's no baby, but I have constant pain in my arm and the pillows help alleviate that. So I am a bed hog! And I *have to* make the bed the instant I get up in the morning, even if I am planning on a nap later. I hate the way an unmade bed looks.
Weird Thing #5
I learned to drive by watching The Dukes of Hazzard. Okay that's not entirely true, but it's mostly true. When I was about 12 or so, I hung around a lot with a family friend CS. She is an amazing lady, funny and kind and so incredibly smart! We delivered newspapers at 3am, ran errands, went garage-saling, all sorts of things. She always drove a VW Rabbit with a standard transmission. She taught me to listen to the engine for when it was time to shift to the next gear. I would listen, and then I would tell her when to shift. After a few weeks of this, she let me do the actual shifting while she did the clutch. Quite interesting to learn how to shift with the wrong hand! CS is the Queen of Multi-tasking. She has always got so much going on that she does as much as possible all the time. It got to the point where I was actually steering and shifting (from the passenger side). The next summer my uncle let me drive his big ol' Ford F-150 pickup out in a sagebrush field. The rest I learned from watching Bo and Luke!
Weird Thing #6
I currently can't think of another weird thing. I know I have hundreds of them, and I'll probably think of something later. When I get home tonight I am going to post some photos so if I've thought of it then I'll ETA.
Okay I thought of a sixth Weird Thing
Weird Thing #6
I shove stuff down my brassiere. Cash, credit card, keys, cell phone . . . . . all have spent time in the Booby Trap. Sometimes a girl just doesn't have pockets handy!

A shout-out to my new friend Mimi!! Girlfriend, I am SO glad I met you!
