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 Amazon.com gift certificate.
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.)
