Flame Free Confessions

(an expression my SIL uses. It means you can say whatever is on your mind, and noone can judge you for it. We have a LOT of flame-free conversation late at night ; )

Here's my list:

+ I don't really like talking on the phone. I do it because I have to. I really prefer seeing people in person.

+I hate onions. Always have. I don;t even know how to slice or cook one. When I was younger I picked them out of EVERYTHING (even spaghetti sauce), much to my mother's chagrin. I would do that now, if I thought I could away with it.

+ When I wash my sheets I am too lazy to make up the bed again, so I sleep on my mattress. That's lazy with intent-ha!

+ Speaking of my bed. I have been known on occasion to take a two hour nap. During the week, just because I can and I love napping. lazy.

+ When I clean up my dining room table and my living room I have an irresistible urge to get out my crafty stuff and make it messy again.
+ Sometimes my car gets atrocious. Like empty coffee cups, papers, the whole mess. I HATE cleaning out my car, but I LOVE how it looks when it clean.

+ I wish I had a case manager to make appointments, make decisions, generally run my life (sometimes). Being an adult can exhausting.

+ I get tickled at inappropriate times and can't help but laugh. Like at funerals. Or the zoo.

+ I tend to be really blunt and I don't think that people she get mad at me for saying what I think, but they do. I wish I was a better arguer. I just think I am right and people should agree with me. And I wish I could get people to do what I want all of the time.

+ My coworkers are hilarious and I love them.

+ I already have a Christmas wish list, and I feel kind of childish that I do. Is it selfish to get excited about getting presents? I hope not.

+ I also already know what I want to do on my birthday, which is two months away. Selfish.

+ I can be really cheap. I don't have cable. And I don't pay for the Internet. I 'borrow' it from someone who has a wireless signal in my building.

Whew, that is a long list. Are you judging me? ; )

OK, your turn. Fess up. I want each of you to leave me a comment with one confession. I need your dirt to make me feel better about mine-lol.

Thanks for playing along!

I'm in! I love FFC's
+I was honored when I read the title of your post. But I think my head grew two sizes after reading your final comment.

+I really enjoy some "alone time". I am an extrovert but sometimes it feels great to get lost in my own head.

+I never want another pet. I love the girls but...I am tired of all the hair (a true phobia of mine)

+I have no filter from my mouth to my brain. I often regret conversations that I have.

+ I have a terrible fear of becoming a hoarder! It makes me want to throw everything away sometimes.

Waiting for more FFC's to be them..

I hate talking on the phone too. Email is the best invention ever. Texting can be pretty useful too.

I'm an introvert, and there are definitely times when I enjoy being around no one but myself and maybe my cats.

I am very organized and tidy, but there are some things I let get really gross. I only wash my car about once or twice a year.

Speaking of cars, I hate getting my oil changed. I once waited until my car was at least 6 months overdue, and when Chris found out, he about killed me!

I hate most dogs. There are a few exceptions, but not many. Chances are if I pretend I like your dog, it's a total act.

I'm a pretty picky eater. I don't like "Southern" style cooking at all. I'm the only person in the world except my sister, who also has the same taste, that goes home from Thanksgiving dinner hungry.

I hate cheesecake too. I am un-American! :)

That's enough skeletons shaken loose from my closet!
