…bake a cake, I sometimes spoon a bit of batter back *into* the bowl, to tide me over ’till the cake is done.
…am around toddlers or kids, I always wear my sturdy silver Tiffany’s necklace. It distracts crying babies–gives them something to do as I rock them to sleep–but is sturdy enough to stand up to a good yank.
…get up in the morning, I always kiss Jeff before getting out of bed.
…wash dishes, I hold contests with myself to see how many clean dishes I can cram into the drainer.
…read a book with an image on the cover, I frequently check back and look at the cover image during breaks in reading.
…wear handknit socks, I have an extra bounce in my step. Must be that springy wool!
…drive my car, I rarely bother to take off my purse unless it’s a long trip.
…do laundry, I must do it ALL in one massive marathon.
…eat Chinese, I always eat one item at a time out of the stir fry–except shrimp ( I intersperse those throughout).
…watch a movie, Jeff has to read the captions/subtitles, as I can’t see to read them myself.
…fall asleep at night, it’s usually to The Colbert Report.
…take a shower, I shampoo –> shave –> body wash –> face wash.
…sneeze, it’s very cute (or so I’m told).
…run out of Diet Coke, the first thing I do when I get home with a new 12-pack is chug two cans. Before I even put away the frozen veggies and such.
…listen to music, I always sing.
…get sad, looking through my yarn stash always helps.
…write a letter, I use my very best cursive on the recipient’s name and address.
…have a good dream, it stays with me all day. Bad dreams don’t.
…cuddle a kitty, I must always kiss its ears to watch them fold back. Kitties’ anger is cute.
…finish a sock, I wear it all day–even if I haven’t finished the other one yet.
…need to relax, I settle in with a History Channel marathon (love me some poorly-acted historical documentaries!).
…feel the urge to buy something, I usually go grocery shopping and come home with strawberry cake mix, twizzlers, and honey braided pretzels, but no milk, lettuce, or bread.
…eat an apple, I slice it first.
…write a blog post, I frequently pause to look out the window and daydream a bit.
