Blogger Confessional: Bad Habits.

I have some pretty annoying habits . . . Don't believe me? Well, let me convince you how annoying I am.
  • I read aloud everything I type.
  • I sing along or try to harmonize with the radio . . . whether I know the words or not.  
  • If I don't know the words to a song, I meow them. (Weirdo alert.)
  • I take forever to respond to e-mails, missed calls, and texts.
  • I bite my fingernails.
  • I pull apart my split ends whenever I get bored.
These habits don't usually interfere with my daily ability to function normally in society.   But, they are starting to effect how people percieve me.

For instance.  A few weeks ago a member of a local girl scout troop came to our apartment to sell us cookies (which we still haven't recieved.  Curse you, girl scouts.).  Because the little lady is in our ward, we invited her in.  While James was filling out the form to get our cookies, I chatted with the tiny scout.  She looked around our house, and then asked me:  "Chelsea, do you have a cat?"  I was befuddled.  I don't have a cat.  I will probably not have a cat for a long time.  In fact, if I had a cat, I would be kicked out of my apartment.   So . . . no cat. 

I told little scoutie poo about the lack of cat-age, and she looked super confused.  Like, maybe she just learned that Santa isn't real or something.  She then pointed to our rug and noted that there are tiny blonde hairs on it.  Woops.  Those hairs are split ends, and they definitely belong to me.  And no, I am not a cat.

So, I probably should stop, right?

Are you guys annoying, too?  Do you have any bad habits?

Too funny! You're definitely not annoying. I think it's so cute and funny that you meow songs and that the girl scout thought you had a cat. Maybe you should get one so you wont have to hide your habits?

Carlie said...

Lara said...

haha I wish a nosy girl scout would come to my house. I want some stupid cookies and I can't find any, and I have 3 cats for her to play with.

P.S. I'm very annoying. You're not alone.

And forgot it too!

That is pretty funny. One of my bad habits is that I leave my shoes everywhere, and I tend to leave clean laundry lying around for days on end. The funny thing is, my office at work is pretty tidy.

We all have bad habits ;) I can especially relate to the humming and singing to whatever, whenever! I'm sure I'm completely out of tune but when the radio is up I swear I sound just like whoever is singing! Haha :)

Oooooh yes.. I'm in the split hair group. My husband gets so mad at me because it'll clog the vacumm brush on the bottom after a few good trips. Oops..... :/

I am super annoying. In my old age I have a lot of joint pain in my neck and shoulder and what have you. My nuerologist blames it on thoracic outlet syndrom or whatever but i really know it's because i'm getting close to kicking the bucket. Anyway. Because i get pain I do all these awkward stretches. Oh yeah. Like middle of the mall stick my butt out flamenco type stretches. And you know what? I don't care cuz I'm old and old people don't care what other people think of them.

I totally sing or hum along to EVERY song on the radio. I can't help it. Everyone has their crazy annoying habits...your's aren't bad.

Crissy B. said...

LOL! I really laughed hard at this post! I used to do that split end thing too- so funny!

Rachelle said...

Sometimes I leave all the cabinets in the kitchen open while I am cooking. My husband kind of feels like he is in a Sixth Sense movie.

Everyday Love said...

Haha! I love that you meow the words you don't know! When I don't know the words to songs I sing "watermelon" along with the tune. It's something my dad does that made me laugh, but I think my friends think I'm strange! haha

Autumn said...

I bite my nails too. It doesn't actually bother me, but it bothers everyone else I seem to know

Emma Frances said...

Baha! Your habits are hilarious and I seriously do lots of them too. Like reading aloud everything I type. I attempt to tone that one down around people but sometimes it's hard. And I always try to pull apart my split ends. And then I show my husband. Haha. He doesn't care but oh well!
