Maybe I’ll get up sooner or later….
Or Maybe not.
I’m weird because….
I laugh at my own private jokes out loud.
I ask other people questions then answer them myself
I have full on conversations with animals
I watch “Gator Boy” marathons then think I can go out and catch myself an alligator
I watch the Syfy channel for comedic relief
I do an impression of ET (wrap up in a blanket, squat real low, then run/hobble around)
I celebrate Friday the 13ths like it’s a holiday
I’m the only girl I know who hasn’t had her wedding planned out since she was little: and still don’t
I’m deathly afraid of sharks, but still go surfing because of the adrenalin rush
I used to be scared of spiders, but now I have dreams about having spiders as friends
I love feeling sore after working out
I like to name inanimate objects (cars, computer, ipod, phone, alarm clock, etc.)
I’m awkward because…
I’ll start talking but never finish my point
I don’t make a lot of eye contact
When I don’t have anything to say I just smile a lot
I don’t get embarrassed when I should
I say/do extremely random things that leave people thinking “where the hell did that come from?!”
I have no problem talking to guys, until I find one attractive, then I turn into a shy stuttering nervous nelly
I point out the awkwardness in situations
I’m awesome because…
I can get through whole conversations using nothing but movie quotes
My sarcastic wit sometimes just takes over and is uncontrollable
I’d rather watch sports with guys than spend time gossiping with girls
I have no censor (unless it’s absolutely necessary)
I will try almost anything once
I’m most fun when…
I’ve had my fix of coffee for the day
I’m over tired and delirious
Someone gives me a couple shots of tequila
I’m bored and want to do something spontaneous
I want to procrastinate
I want to do nothing but dance dares (dance behind people without them noticing)
I’m happy because…
I have many things to be thankful for
A Harry Potter marathon is on TV right now
Mac Miller is in town, even though I won’t be able to see him
It’s almost my birthday
I’m going to see Ke$ha in concert soon
I have friends that accept and sometimes encourage my quirks
I’m sad because…
It’s 55 degrees in July, so iced coffee was not appropriate today
I never received a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and forces me to accept that I am a muggle (I know this joke has been worn out beyond belief, but it legitimately is hard for me to accept it and makes me sad)
My cat won’t talk to me today
My drink is too far to reach and I don’t want to get up
Time is going by too fast
I hit the point where I’m too old according to my younger cousins and get made fun of
There’s still a couple months left until hockey season starts
No one else has had the honor of attending my concerts as I belt out many songs in the car on road trips (move over Beyonce, I’m becoming a pro)
My weird list is longer than my happy and awesome list combined
There’s clearly not enough going on in my life right now for me to resort to compiling these lists about myself. Sometimes it happens. Hopefully after a night out tonight I will get back on track with my life’s inevitable laughable moments. Until then this is all you get. Keep on keeping on.
The awesome part of my week is that I saw a shooting star, and got to see my best friend after not seeing her for almost a year in the same night. We went out for a few drinks and were able to catch up even though we still communicated some way or another at least every week. Our favorite form of communication lately: snap chat. I don’t know what it is about snap chat, but I love it. I just find it very entertaining. Anyways, we decided how much it sucks that people get too busy that they eventually lose touch the older you get. It’s great having a friend that no matter how much time passed between seeing each other that you can just pick up where you left off.
The awkward part of my week is that we had three guys beg us to play pool at a bar during their… bachelor party??? One guy was getting married, the other had a girlfriend and bragged about all the expensive trips he took, and the other was single and trying…way too hard! It was kind of a sad bachelor party if you ask me. The guy getting married said he had six groomsmen…. but he only had two of them with him on a pretty important night??? Plus they were talking to us, who gave many signals that we clearly didn’t want anything to do with them. We played pool but didn’t try. We said every place that the bragster went to sucked. We didn’t even laugh at the poor single guys jokes (which in our defense were pretty bad, and maybe a little offensive). We just really didn’t want to be bothered. We clearly were texting each other back and forth whether or not we should leave. But they didn’t notice. They told us to go to the same bar they were headed to after. I don’t know it just was a train wreck for them. Either way it was pretty awkward when they left and we didn’t want to go with. oh well. You can’t win them all.
At least my best friend and I know to handle situations like these… just laugh and joke about it later.
Hope everyone had a good week.
There is an endless amount of possibilities as to why I can’t sleep:
I could probably keep going with reasons since my brain could be the new mascot for energizer batteries (Move over pink bunny banging the drum!) But, I should probably try to sleep for the 5th time. It’s already past 3:00 am so I undoubtedly have to schedule my exorcism in the morning. Until then I will lay here awake, and wait for the sandman to come back and drop a 10lb bag of sand on my head to knock me out.

In response to Weekly Writing Challenge: A Pinch of me
I dropped the whole recipe idea. I feel like a brewed witch’s potion is more like me.
Warning: The practice of witchcraft is needed, but this is for good. Like Harry Potter good.
