I never claimed to be normal

  • I only use the front right burner on the stove. If we already have something going on that one, I will use the left front burner. However, I am almost 100 percent positive that in the 10 years we've had our current stove, I've never, ever used the rear right one.
  • Every time I step over an elevator threshold, I am reminded that there is a minuscule possibility that a cable could break and it could come crashing down, severing me at the torso. Unlikely, but I remember that it happened to a college student a few years ago and it's one of those things I can't forget. Several times a day.
  • I know, take the stairs, right? Yeah, I have this fear when I take the stairs at the office that I might fall down in the stairwell and -- because I work with like 1,500 other sedentary people who don't ever take the stairs -- no one would find me for days.
  • I'm stellar at writing the new year's digits on my checks all the way through January, because the excitement! of the new year! is still on my mind. But around Valentine's Day I start slipping up and writing the previous year again. All week this week it's been 2009.
  • I have a really, really hard time reading blogs that use multiple fonts and colors. I have actually deleted several from my daily feed because of that ... they're just too hard to read and most of the time it's not worth the effort.
  • related: bloggers who only write in lowercase letters and/or center all your text, I'm trying hard to stick with you, but you're pushin' it.

AMEN! So funny, but all so true. I especially dislike the blogs owners who think you are there to count the many different fonts they use in one post.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I just looked through some of your posts. You are HILARIOUS! I also am in love with the Chic-fil-a sauce. They've only had it for about a year. Now I'm going to try and make sure my blog text isn't always centered. Yikes....but I do use capital letters, so I guess I'm okay.

So I tried the sauce...not a fan but thanks for encouraging me to try something new. Also, I always use the back right burner for my tea pot. :) It's my back left burner that gets sadly neglected.

Rachel, so sorry you didn't like the sauce! But I'm proud of you for trying it!
