Ten Interesting Things - I hope

Yesterday, I received the Kreative Blogger Award from Connie Keller. Thanks so much, Connie.

I'm suppose to list ten interesting things about me, which is hard because I'm really not that interesting.

Here it goes. Hopefully you find them somewhat interesting.

1. When I unload my grocery cart, I organize my food in the order of how I want it bagged and get very annoyed when the cashier doesn't do it. But I never say anything, because I'm a people pleaser.

2. I have a streak of grey on the right side of my hair and I'm pretty sure if I let it grow, I would resemble Rogue from X-men.

3. I cannot wear black and navy blue. On Sunday, I thought I had put on black nylons, but when I got outside I realized they were navy and I had to go home to change.

4. I hate exercise, but I love the feeling after you do it.

5. I think I've mentioned this before, but I hate wearing socks, almost as much as I hate folding them.

6. I am a plotter wannabe, but my brain just doesn't seem to work that way.

7. I like my bed made a certain way, but I often leave my clothes on the floor. Makes it hard to yell at my kids to clean their room when mine's a mess.

8. My favorite political show is The Daily Show - I think John Stewart should moderate the next Republican debate.

9. I have this thing with hidden entrances. I seem to use them a lot in my writing.

10. Even though I'm Canadian, I really don't enjoy watching or playing hockey.

Alright you're done. Now for passing this award onto six fellow bloggers.

Ali Cross (have you checked out NiNoCon)

Go check them out they are totally worth knowing.

How about you? Any interesting facts you'd like to reveal?


Michael Offutt, Tebow Cult Initiate said...

Congratulations on your award. From the description of some of the facts pulled from your life, I would almost say that you have some obsessive compulsive disorder going on. However, you're able to manage it which is good. I'm also not saying that this is necessarily a bad thing. It's just how I would describe the behavior based off of stuff I've read online. But I'm no psychologist.

LOL I do the same thing with my grocery cart... and when it doesn't get bagged the way I had envisioned in my head, I think "Come on!! I made it easy for you!!!"

Jessica Nelson said...

I have extra bones on my feet and I organize my grocery cart too. *grin*

Joanne said...

Okay, another grocery cart organizer here, too. Cold foods with the cold, paper products all together, etc etc. It just makes it easier when I get home.

Wendy Paine Miller said...

I'm always barefoot in the summer.

Cracking me up about your grocery cart organization.

And I can make a mean frog croak.

Your first one cracked me up. I do the same thing! It makes sense. What's really annoying is when the bagger bags the groceries up wrong anyway.

Ruth Josse said...

I always group my cold stuff together because I have kind of a long ride home and want my cold stuff to stay cold. And I'm the same way with my room! My bed is always made but my floor is always a mess. I'm such a hypocrite when I get after my kids. Hate socks too. And shoes. Winter is hard for me just for that reason.

Carolyn V said...

I totally agree with you on the exercising! I hate starting, but love the after effect. =D

Heidi Willis said...

LOL! I'm TOTALLY on you with that first one!!

I LOVE socks. I don't know how anyone can hate them. Although, I hate folding them, so I'm in a pickle there. :)

Thanks for passing this on, although I'm anything but creative these days! Ten things interesting about me? That may be a stretch! :)

Martin Willoughby said...

I'm like that with groceries. Being a man, the female checkout assistants tend to try and do it for me, even if I say no when they ask if I want help.

I've unpacked their packing and redone it countless times, mainly because I don't want my eggs on the bottom and crushed.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I'm' totally shopping with you next time, Patti. I'm not big into hockey, either.

Thanks for the pretty award. :D

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

You ARE interesting! : ) I love that you organize the shopping cart, yet keep your gripes to yourself when things become unorganized. : )

Congratulations on your award.

Misha Gericke said...

Congrats on your award. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one whose room is a constant mess. :-D

Jennifer Hoffine said...

Thanks for the award!

I love hidden entrances also...since way back in my Nancy Drew days.

Melissa Marsh said...

Thanks for the award!

I'm a plotter wannabe, too. It takes me forever to weave the threads of my plot together. I wish I could plot it all out beforehand, but it just doesn't happen that way.
