More Insomnia

I am glad eBay and Amazon are open 24 hours a day. I just bought a belly ring, a food chopper, and two cookbooks.

The following meme is from my blog-buddy Kathi.

Three Things...

Three things that scare me

1. Surprises
2. Needles
3. Michael Flatley, Lord of the Dance

Three things I love

1. My family
2. My friends
3. Making my friends and family giggle like little girls

Three things I hate

1. Cruelty
2. Ignorance
3. Raccoons

Three things I don't understand

1. War
2. Office politics
3. Mathematics

Three things on my desk

1. A lifetime supply of Grins & Giggles lotion that gave Erik a rash
2. A notebook bulging with special education and EI forms
3. Taber's Cylopedic Medical Dictionary

Three things I'm doing right now

1. Wishing I could freaking sleep
2. Telling my whining cat to SHUT UP
3. Wondering if the coffeemaker is too noisy at this hour

Three things I want to do before I die

1. Make sure Erik will be taken care of if he is still living
2. Write a book
3. Fall asleep so I don't see it coming

Three things I can do well

1. Write (working on it, anyway)
2. Give strangers nicknames (quietly)
3. Tell stories and crack myself up, ruining them all instantly

Three things I can't do

1. Be in a plane without humming "Chantilly Lace" or "Walking After Midnight"
2. Eat squash or any type of cooked gourd without gagging
3. Successfully iron clothing

Three things I should listen to

1. God
2. My gut
3. My friends

Three things I shouldn't listen to

1. People who JUDGE ME for who I am or what I do/don't do
2. The voices in my head that make me second guess myself
3. Slim Whitman albums

Three things I watched as a kid

1. The Muppet Show
2. Those cool 70s Dolly Madison-sponsored holiday specials
3. Night Flight (don't tell my mother)

Much of this made me smile and Slim made me laugh. I love it when we 'bounce' off of each other. Happy new year, here's to a new year full of hope. :)

Nancy ~ Now I guess I'll have to go find out what in the heck "Night Flight" is! ~ jb///
P.S. I can't wait for the book... I am glad you are blogging NOW though. I just love the emotion your writing exudes. Even if... (sometimes) it tears at my heart. ~ jb///

You gave me the gift of laughing out load with some of your answers! BTW - take off the (working on it, anyway) comment on your Writing item.
Just a suggestion. :)
