Confessions #3

** I like reading books that make me think. I like reading at the gym. But I do NOT like reading books that make me think at the gym.
** My nose itches a lot and when I rub it to give it some relief it makes kind of a weird honking crunching sound...
** Although I use Ambien sparingly, its starting to make me hallucinate a little bit, humoring me while completely horrifying my husband.
** All reading that will be done between now and the beginning of summer semester will likely be teen fiction, and here's why: 1. A 400 page book in teen fiction can cost up to 15 dollars less than adult fiction with the same number of pages. 2. There is not as much thinking required in them. You will not find a a Virginia Woolf or T.S Eliot anywhere in that section. While I do enjoy the works of both writers they require a lot of focus and attention and most of my leisure reading is done at the gym....see above.
** At six feet tall I often feel like a freak when I have to bend over to hug people. It's awkward. Is this awkward for short people? It makes me feel like a blimp and I wonder why everything in my life seems to be built in miniature.
** I cheat on puzzles, only the really hard ones anyway. After I have done them once, I section them off and put them into little baggies so they are easier to do next time.

Ha ha! I didn't know it was possible to "cheat" on puzzles! Julie, you amaze me! :) And I think it's worse for short people. But maybe that's because I'm short. Especially when you're a short person who suffers from chlosterphobia. I can't stand to be in crowds because I can't see anything and I'm not tall enough to see over anyone's head and I feel smothered and it drives me crazy!

Girl, I totally agree on the hugging thing! I'm not even that tall, but with boobs, hugging anyone significantly shorter is just awkward...
