Don’t you know me at all?

A long, long time ago (eight days, to be exact) Small Town, Small Times tagged me for a meme. And it couldn’t have come sooner, ’cause days of stagnation, indeed. However I’ve decided to mix it up a bit.

Peeps, I’m holding a contest. Why? Because it’s been entirely too quiet slow boring around here during the month of October. And because even though I never win anything doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have the opportunity. And because I have a rather morbid curiosity about how many people will actually participate. (Don’t ask.)

So, of everyone to guess correctly which one of the following personality traits does not belong, I’m going to draw a name and give away one $15 gift certificate.

And… go!

Indecisive. I cannot make a decision to save my life. But I blame this on the fact that there are just too many options. The Husband is indecisive, too. Which means that by the time we decide where to have dinner, I’ve already eaten.

Impulsive. It might take me forever to make a decision, but once I do, WATCH OUT. It took me six weeks to decide which camera to buy, but once the decision was made, I was handing over my credit card within thirty minutes. Once I’ve decided I want something, I want it NOW. The Husband hates this about me.

Nervous. About everything. Spending the night alone, speaking in public, getting my eyebrows waxed, holding blog contests. New things are especially nerve-wracking which is why I drag a buddy along whenever I do anything for the first time. After I know what to expect, I’m much better.

Affectionate. I love to hug and hold hands. I often find myself touching an arm or shoulder while having a conversation with someone. Sometimes I randomly hug strangers on the street. Seriously can’t get enough PDAs.

Paranoid. Two Saturdays ago, as I began getting ready for bed, I became dizzy. More so than I’d ever been in my life. I got into bed hoping it’d go away, but the room continued to spin as if I’d spent the night out on the town with my friend Patron. Suddenly I couldn’t get this one thought out of my head: what if I don’t wake up again? I get like this over everything. It’s why I sleep with a knife next to the bed when I’m home alone. Which, thankfully, isn’t often because what if I accidentally stabbed myself in my sleep?

Impatient. Especially at work. Especially when I’m asked for help by people who SHOULD KNOW THIS ALREADY.

Sarcastic. This gets me into trouble with The Husband who can often be heard snapping, “You just can’t keep your mouth shut, can you?” I try, I swear. I’ll hear the sarcastic comment in my head and try my hardest to keep my lips sealed, but I just can’t help it. I’m really not a very nice person.

Have fun with it. Guess as many times as you want. Contest will end, winner will be announced, and gift certificate will be e-mailed on Wednesday.

I bet there’s plenty of Twilight-related merch you could buy with $15. If you were so inclined. (I would be so inclined.)

(Contest has ended and winner has been announced. Thanks for playing. I love you people.)

  1. Stephanie says:

    I guess sarcastic.You seem like to much of a sweetheart. ;O)

  2. Teeter says:

    I really wish I could answer, but I would give it away! πŸ˜‰

  3. wendy says:

    My guess is indecisive. Although I'm not sure if I should choose that answer…..

  4. TheresaG says:

    I'm thinking the affectionate one. Only because I am pretty low tolerance on PDA and am uncomfortable in settings that require hugs and such as a matter of courtesy.

  5. Violet says:

    I'm going with impulsive. Because from what I know of you, impulsive doesn't fit. Also, your description of impulsive doesn't really sound impulsive to me. ;)(The word sounds weird and sorta naughty to me now…impulsive, impulsive, impulsive…)

  6. Angry Asian says:

    affectionate. i kinda don't see you as very affectionate.

  7. Yellow Iris says:

    “Sometimes I randomly hug strangers on the street”? Somehow that doesn't sound like the Stephanie whose blog I've been reading for several months now. So my guess is Affectionate doesn't belong.

  8. Debbie says:

    No offense intended, but I'm picking affectionate. And not because you are not a lovely person….I believe you are…but I just don't see you grabbing strangers on the street. Or maybe I'm channeling myself here cause that is what I'm not and the description made me cringe! πŸ™‚

  9. Gayle says:

    Gah, this is hard! I think I remember you saying something about touching people, but I don't remember if you said you do it, or don't like it! Okay, I'm going to have to pick Affectionate.

  10. Gayle says:

    And, since you said guess as many times as we want…my second choice is Indecisive!

  11. Paul Godin says:

    I'd have to say affectionate. The hugging random strangers doesn't go well with the nervous behavior. But what do I know I'm only a lurker.

  12. Alias Mother says:

    I'm going to say affectionate, too, because one of these things is not like the others and that's the thing. But I am afraid that if it's NOT affectionate, you are going to be mortally offended that we all think you are a cold fish.But that's okay, because I also am not affectionate. If we ever meet, I absolutely will not hug you.But I might lick your face just to see what you do.

  13. Annie D says:

    I love your blog! My guess would be: “Affectionate”. BTW, my daughter loves your cat pictures…me too!

  14. rory says:

    Hate to say it, don't take it bad, but affectionate seems to fit you the way women's panties fit me.Which is to say, not very well.

  15. Lacey says:

    I'm thinking its affectionate

  16. Hey girl I'm gunna say “Affectionate” …PDA is gross and I feel like a sarcastic comment must come out of you whenever you see gross teenagers smooching. haha because I know that I make puking sounds when I see it.-L

  17. MichelleSG says:

    I'm going with affectionate too. Only because you are so much like me and I have an issue with being touched. It took my hubby over a decade to kinda break me of it. Kinda.

  18. Chelsea says:

    I guess Affectionate. PDA is awkward.

  19. There is no way that you would hug strangers on the street!!!But if I'm wrong, then I would like to hold hands with you. Bwhahahaa πŸ™‚

  20. LynneFtWorth says:

    hugging strangers on the street doesn't seem like your style. I guess affectionate.

  21. Jen says:

    PDA–WRONG. I know this like I kinow I'll never live more than 3 blocks from a check cashing place.

  22. Deanna says:

    Affectionate is my guess. I guessed that before reading the descriptions after the words. After reading your description of affectionate, I am certain it's the one that doesn't belong!!

  23. Affectionate. Also, all of the listed traits=ME. πŸ™‚

  24. MeganAnne says:

    got to be the PDA… totally doesn't fit with the other ones.

  25. Megan says:

    I have to go with affectionate. Affectionate with strangers and nervous…just doesn't seem to fit.

  26. I was going to say impulsive, but then I think of all the baking and baking that maybe weren't on your To DO list that day…so then I was going to say affectionate because it just seems to stick out…but now, having thought about it more, I'm going with impatient because as I think about you and The Husband…you have been incredibly patient.So the contest is probably over, but I'm still voting for impatient.
