I know, we all have character flaws. Those little things about us that are unpleasant, disgusting, and downright inexcusable. So here I am fessing up on the worst of the worst of what makes me tick. To my Geekbuddies...I fully expect to lose most of you after you read this...but who knows? Perhaps I will gain a few oddball friends!

I can NOT tolerate change. In any way shape of form. I hate updating software, clothing, shoes, cars, home interiors, appliances...and I never, EVER, want to move. I don't even like to travel.

I am a cat lady. You know those crazy cat ladies that have a house full of stinking cats? Yeah, one of those. Luckily for my husband, after I had my baby the cats DID get moved outside...but deep deep down I know that when I am 90 years old I will have a stinky overrun Crazy cat lady house.

Obsessions and addictions. Sigh. I have a lot of them. Dollhouses, guitar, BGG Werewolf, and man---I smoke! Ewww. I quit for four years and started again. Why?...because I JUST CAN'T STOP.

Money. I am the WORST when it comes to paying my bills! Why? I have no idea. We HAVE the money. I worked in accounting for five years. I KNOW how to manage money! Regardless, the electric company has to show up at my door to pick up the check because I NEVER mail it! Why?....I don't know...it is probably because...

I forget EVERYTHING. I am so lame at keeping appointments, remembering where I put things, calling people back, or even remembering to eat. I rarely know what day of the week it is and still forget that we are not in the 90's anymore. Maybe I should have a schedule? I would but..

I never hear the alarm clock. I can't get up at the same time every day. Sometimes I get up at 3am, and sometimes I get up at 10am. "How is that possible with a kid?" you may ask. Strangely, he does the same thing, and so do my mother and father.

I also don't hear or pay any mind to fire alarms. In 1992 I lived in a duplex. I was on the lower level and was sitting in the recliner doing a crossword puzzle. I "Kind of" heard a noise, but I just ignored it. 20 minutes later my Ex walks in and says "How long has that fire alarm been going off upstairs?"....
"Uh....a while..." I say.
"Well, are you going to call the fire department? What are you doing?"

I called the fire department and it ended up just being a pot that was left on the stove and caused a lot of smoke to generate. The worst thing about it is that the neighbors, who had just immigrated from Korea and spoke NO ENGLISH, were so grateful that I saved their home that they brought us dinners down for two weeks! MAN I FELT BAD!!!

Have you ever gone to lunch with someone who just can't decide what they want? That's me. How do I solve that? I eat at the same place all the time...and I eat the SAME food every time I go. What happens if they don't have it that day? Mayhem...Absolute mayhem, as I frantically go over the menu to find a suitable option...sometimes opting to get nothing at all in lieu of making a poor choice.

This affliction has three areas that I am not effected by it: Grocery shopping(because I always buy the same things), book stores (I am not picky), and Board games.

It seems a little thing, but I think about it every day. I just can't seem to drink enough water! First off I am never thirsty...really! So it wouldn't be a problem at all except that I am really paranoid about working out when I am not hydrated which means that I am NOT working out as often as I should because I haven't had enough water. Stupid I know, but true.

I suppose this is a problem most of us have. And I guess I should look at it as a good thing. But these people that are tethered to me are crazier then I am! It takes me weeks to recover from visiting family, and that doesn't say anything about the husband and two sons I live with everyday...or that fact that every neighbor in a half mile radius of my house is RELATED to my husband, and all of them have strange nicknames like "Cockeye" and "Jazzbo"

This is one of my two very odd little Phobias.

I can not STAND the way peanut butter feels in my mouth. It makes me SICK, if I smell peanut butter my stomach turns. Strangely I like Reeses Pieces, and I like the way peanut butter tastes in very small amounts drowned in jelly. But it really is the consistancy. DISGUSTING!

It all started when I was three and my brother got on his cereal kick. I couldn't stand the sound of the crunching. It bore through my skull until I was ready to scream. I have carried this with me all of my life, and have even gone so far as to break down sobbing and run out of a meeting because a woman across the table was eating sourdough pretzels.
Isn't that crazy? Or is it even more crazy that she would be eating pretzels in a meeting?

You know those people that you meet and they get all nervous and keep talking like a raving lunatic? That's me. The more nervous I am the more I talk, the more I say that I rather didn't, and I just can't stop, I apologize, I explain why, and then change the subject, apologize, change the subject....and the person is just staring at me like "Holy CRAP! She is off the beam!" ...and they are right, once I get on the fast babble track it is very hard to get off.


And there you go! The crazy Lauramath list of vices. I am sure I have just made 99% of you feel REALY great about yourselves!
