Confession #1: I have a secret stash of all my conference/event nametags. I like to see my name in print and can’t bear the thought of leaving behind my personalized signage to get tossed in the recycling bin. Is that strange?
Confession #2: I hate watermelon. If it were the last thing to eat on the planet, I wouldn’t do it. You will never catch me eating a slice of watermelon or for that matter anything watermelon flavoured. A watermelon rind was rudely discarded on our front lawn the other day. It soon became dinner for a host of bugs. Me? I would rather eat the dandelions.
Confession #3: I hoard books. I become easily attracted to books and like to stockpile them. I also like to read more than one book at a time. Oddly, that slows the whole process down considerably.
Confession #4: I would much prefer to live my life naked. If the world were such that I could do this and it would be “normal” just think of how much money, time and energy we would all save on clothing. Not to mention how much happier we would be with our bodies. Babies totally get it. It’s unfortunate that stage of my life didn’t last longer.
Confession #5: I love – in kind of a silly and unjustified way – filling out surveys and questionnaires. I think it’s because I like to be asked for my opinion – even if it is on relatively trivial things like shampoo.
Confession #6: I tie my shoes using the “bunny ear” method. Someone once laughed at me and told me it was weird that after starting with the “bunny ear” method, I had never been taught “the grown-up” way. I am still trying to figure out why there is a graduated process for tying shoelaces.
Confession #7: I don’t wear antiperspirant. (No, I’m not a hippie.) Aside from a lot of the chemicals and metals in commercial antiperspirants, I always felt weird about something that was designed to alter my body’s internal detox process. I never liked any of the commercial deodorants either. Why would anyone want to walk around with slimy armpits? So now I use this aluminum-free, all-natural deodorant cream. (Rachel of Soapwalla is very cool and makes great products. If instead you want to take a stab at DIY-ing a deodorant cream, check this out.)
