Quirky meme and Oh Crap!

What's Jack up to? He's probably still laughing his behind off from yesterday.

Well, I took him for a quickie walk around the block before running out again to run errands. Jack was having no part of doing his business. I swear he was lifting his little legs for the fun of it. A regular kickstand he was. We went to all his usual haunts and no real action, if you know what I mean. So I told him, "too bad too sad. I got things to do, people to see."






Right when we were about to go in the house, Jack took in our newly fertilized grass and decided the time to go was now! So he goes and all was right with the world.


I had Amy Winehouse going on my ipod so I shoved that in my pocket while I pulled out a bag to pick up the, sorry people, steaming poop from the lawn.


Well, somehow without thinking I misjudged the whole baggy thing and reach down and ended up with a bare hand of steaming hot poop!!!

OMG!!! How much did I throw up in my mouth? How many hand washings did it take with how many different products to get the smell from my hands? The DH is still cracking up and won't let me touch him, but believe me he's bound to come around sooner or later. I have my ways :)

Now onto the Quirks


The Very Cool Carleen Brice aka The Pajama Gardener tagged me for a meme.



Here are the rules:
Link the person who tagged you.
Mention the rules in your blog.
Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger's blogs letting them know they've been tagged
So here goes a few quirky thinks about me (believe me there are plenty more):

1. I cant stand the taste or smell of mint. Don't bring it near me. You might get hurt.

2.I must take a bath every night. I shower will do in a pinch, but I prefer a bath or I don't sleep well. I hate getting between the sheets dirty and don't want anyone getting next to me dirty either.

3.I don't like gum chewers. It just bugs me although every once in a while I will have a bit of gum but only bubble gum.


4.Like Carleen I must have everything in plain site. I'm a piler. If I put it away then it's forgotten about. Take today for instance. I had been admiring a lovely black satin trench on a knit club buddy, T, the other day and thinking how I need a new swanky black coat for spring. So I'm pondering this really hard, trying to figure how I can find one in the free 25 minutes I have during the day when it dawns on me that I already have one- right in my hall closet. It's perfect. Black, satin and pretty new from Vera Wang when her Kohl's line first came out. And I totally forgot I had it. Outta sight outta mind. That's me.

5.I'm a huge procrastinator but one that works really well under deadlines. No deadline no workie.

6.I can't stand opinionated people, but I'm so major opinionated myself, but I like to think I'm open-minded. What up with that? Hmm. Shrug?


So for this quirky meme I'm tagging Megan, Mel, Louisa, Elizabeth, Leanna and Maureen. Don't hate me Y'all. Have fun.



Have a great weekend. I'm off to Boston for Ms. Marley's launch Party for her Sorority 101 books with, K , my oldest BFF. We've been buds since I was in 3rd grade. Can you believe that? I'm leaving the DD, DS, DH and Jack and she's leaving her own DH sweet, but totally 2 1/2 year old DS and dog named Morty.


Mama's flying the coop for girl's getaway. Yay!! Watch out world.















Best,

Kwana

PS- Last minute add on- Survivor. Did you watch? Poor James. De-railed. Then Alexis- De-railed? Dis-cuss! Sorry Eileen.

Try lemon juice to get the smell off your skin (assuming the nightly bath and manic hand-washing hasn't already taken care of it).

I'm also an out of sight, out of minder...

Eileen said...

Fun post...I planted mint in my backyard over 4 yrs ago and spend hours each year pulling it out...it's hard to control and spreads like a wild fire..it is good as a tea for digestion problems...Fay

Kwana said...

No, Carleen you are not alone.

Thanks for the advice, Amy.

Sorry for the gross out, Eileen.

Thanks, Leanna what a good sport you are!
