Rules Were Made To Be Broken


My buddy Jormengrund (dude, where'd you come up with that name?) tagged me. I hate being tagged. It's so much pressure. And frankly, they're hard. Seven weird things about me? SEVEN? Seriously, I'm just not that weird.

But since Jor is amusing the hell out of me lately, I'm going to play along. But I won't tag you. Fair enough?

So, here you go. Every little weird thing you ever wanted to know about me...

1. If you tell me to do something, it goes to the bottom of my list if you want me to do it or the top if you don't. I despise to be told what to do. I'm a libra. You must entice me. Manipulate me. Trick me, even. But don't ever TELL me. This is precisely why I never planted my pansies this Fall. Both my girl and my mother kept telling me that it was time. My girl finally planted them last week. See! I might be a tad stubborn as well.

2. I do everything in the exact same order in the shower. If I wash my hair before I brush my teeth, the entire day is off. I feel like my teeth are dirty and my hair's too clean!

3. I sing (aka howl) "Over There"

O-ver there, o-ver there, send the word, send the word, o-ver there,
That the Yanks are com-ing, the Yanks are com-ing,

The drums rum-tum-ming ev'-ry where


with Isaac, the white dog, first thing in the morning as I'm peeing. He comes in and stares at me until I start howling. Okay, maybe that's a *tad* weird. No words, just howling to the tune. Then, Trace will join in and I'll quit howling to enjoy them howling. That would be a damn funny vlog, wouldn't it?

4. I made out with my best friend at a party right after we met and before I met my girl. It might not seem weird to you, but it does to me. You know how you end up being friends with someone that you were totally hot for and then, it seems strange that you ever felt that way?

5. I think James Spader is a fox and I would totally do him. Until he was in the bedroom all naked with whiskers and a tally-wacker and then I'd probably just wanna talk.

6. I took piano lessons for seven years during my childhood. When I was old enough to say no to the lessons, I never once touched a piano again. I hate performing. Oh, I think this may just be #1 all over again!

7. My thumbs are put on backwards. Maybe some day I'll show you.

Oh yeah, I think we need a video of you and the dogs!

Heinous said...

I'll never ask you to do anything then. That will make everything much easier.

My favorite role for Spader was in the movie, "Crash."

Anndi said...

No telling Libra secrets!!! SHHHHH!

Being told to do something, HA! Good luck!

Recovering Grady Addict said...

I lost all love for James Spader when he pimped out his best friend (Robert Downey Jr) to cover friend's bad coke habit in "Less than Zero". Yes I know it was just the character he played. But, still. That's low.

As for Mr. Downey - well... as they say --Life Imitates Art...

Jen said...

Must see dawgie potty sing along!

Knight said...

Mmmm. I love me some Spader.
Cheers to that!

Scarlet said...

I stopped taking piano lessons, too, but I haven't stopped "performing." ;)

I love your list...especially #3.

Dana said...

Ummmm ... it would be weird if you sang "Over There"! But to howl it? I think that is seven weirdness' rolled into one!

tt said...

And here I thought I was the only person on the planet who thought Spader was HOT!..go on with your bad self gurl!!!
AND....my thumbs are on backwards too!! Are we twins born eons apart?? Nawww.....you're way cuter with better dimples. ;)

Ashleigh said...

Ha. ha. Yep. We're gonna need a vlog!

Not that I'm TELLING you Libra. It's merely a suggestion. A nudge.
if you will. lol.

TGIF!

Jormengrund said...

I honestly LOVE this post RLL!

I'm so glad you decided to play along.

Now you've got some folks clamoring for more stuff, so in all fairness, I think I've helped you get some more content for your blog!

Maybe I should get some promotional credits somewhere?

*insert evil grin here*

Have a great weekend!

Jess said...

So many things explained now...I am a Libra as well!

Phoenix said...

thumbs on backwards? M kind of scared.
About not doing things you're told to do, that's not just a libran;s trait. I ve had plenty of such ppl around me :P Stuck up wid em. But what i feel is, they are the easiest ones to handle ;) You know what i mean :P

Nolens Volens said...

Please don't become heterosexual. ;)

Fortune Cookies said...

I think Libras and Leos have a lot in common, or at least we both rebel against being TOLD what to do. I think it's a touch of authority defiance disorder.

I have one thumb that was put on backwards, but not the other, what's that about?

thePATHeyeCHOOSE said...

Oh you made my day! LOL
Great read.

Monogram Queen said...

I'm a Libra too - maybe that is why I "get" you! LOL

SkylersDad said...

What ever you do, DO NOT put the singing to the dog on a VLOG posting! I forbid it!!

How is that working out for reverse psychology Ms. Libra?

Micky-T said...

I want to see the backward thumbs while your howling with your dogs!

CheekyMonkey said...

I'm so there with you on the shower thing. Well, I mean, I'm not THERE there.. but I totally get what you're sayin... shampoo, condition, face, wash cond, body soap. And don't you DARE ask me to take a shower with dirty teeth! NOT A CHANCE IN HELL!

Akelamalu said...

Go on, show us you thumbs! :)

Bond said...

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

tallywacker!

Biscuit said...

You know I'm gonna have to search the google for #7 to find out what the heck that looks like.

Spiky Zora Jones said...

Um...did you say David Spade? hehehe. i didn't think so...but it would be a nice talk huh?

That's a fun tag sweets. way to go...I loved your answers...I think IO know you better.

Have a fab weekend...OVER THERE...OVER THERE. Now tell me how to turn it off...UGH!

Ciao.

Laura said...

DONT POST PICS!

Lu' said...

Yepper, I'm thinkin g a thumbs up video is in order. I sing to my kittie cats. Special little songs individualized for each of them. Nope never gonna post those.

Gin said...

I'm also glad I'm not the only James Spader freak out there. Seems there are a lot of us coming out of the closet!

Love this blog post!!

Dianne said...

I have to do my morning kitchen ritual in the exact same order - put coffee on, feed the cats, other boring crap - otherwise I'm confused all day

would love to see you singing with the dogs

maybe for Christmas!?

Vodka Mom said...

One two three four, I declare a thumb war..

I might actually WIN against you!!!

Rima said...

I hear you about the shower protocol. I'm the same way.

I also have to Q-tip both my ears simultaneously, or else SOMETHING BAD will happen.

a pot, a thought & a smidgen of dirt said...

ohh, thought it was just me who does the shower thing, I have to wash my hair first or I am never clean!!! hair-face-shave-teeth-body

rage said...

There is something about James Spader...

:)

rantingdiva said...

I do not want a home cooked pasta dish... Totally don't want a pasta dish...

I'll be in Nashville before New Years, but I don't want a pasta dish. Or wine.

Got it.. no pasta, no wine.

Slyde said...

ill weigh in with my geeky knowledge of trivia..

Jormengrund, if i remember from my old Thor comics, was the "midgard" serpent. he was the dragon that encircled the world, and he and thor killed each other in their final battle....

im a geek, i know.

captain corky said...

I never knew that the reason I never listen to anyone is cause I'm a libra. And all this time I thought it was just cause I'm an asshole. ;)

Travis said...

I get the shower thing...my whole day is off if I get my morning routine out of order. And although I don't sing or howl with my kitty, Mr Tucker and I do have serious kitty conversation in the morning.

Honestly, what's more fun that making animal noises back at your pet! They get the funniest looks!

~Jobthingy~ said...

lol i think we need video of the singing.

backwards thumbs eh? yeah i think that is something you want to reveal.

Tiggerlane said...

Totally agree to #4.

And I thought YOUNG James Spader was hot.

fairyflutters said...

I am just like that about being *told* to do something. I hate it. It could be the most simple request, too. I won't want to do it. I'd much rather do what I want when I want. Well, wouldn't we all I guess? LOL

Great 7 things list!

Thanks for popping by my blog and no, cookies don't fix everything but they sure do cheer me up (but not quite as well as a margarita on a stick would). ;)

Ann said...

I too despise being tagged! But then I feel bad if I don't "play". Ugh.

Love your little facts though, nonetheless, my dear.

Vixen said...

Oh! #2, ME TOO!!!

Hey and I'm a Libra. But I think I confuse my stubbornness with OCD most times. LOL

Loved reading your random facts. :)

Merrily Down the Stream said...

James Spader rocks my world!
Two thumbs up! or would thatt be down in your case?!?
