Nap Time

Tagged by Tug.

6 weird things I do while getting ready to sleep or while sleeping:

1. I usually lay down then immediatly have to get back up to use the bathroom. I guess I just don't have time to hear nature calling until then, or maybe I relax and that helps moves things along.

2. It takes me an exceptionally long time to get to sleep the first time. I can fall back asleep in nanoseconds when something wakes me up.

3. I like a nice amount of 'weight' on me when I sleep. About two to three quilts is the perfect amount. Its hard for me to sleep when its hot, I'm either too hot, or feeling like there isn't enough blankets on me.

4. I like to fall asleep with music on. Superwoman likes quiet, so lately I have been falling asleep with the i-Pod in my ears.

5. I snore. But not a normal snore. I've been mistaken for a bear. Snorting may be more accurate than snoring. I'll be sleeping fine then let out this guttural and loud (very loud snort). It's weird; but I can't help it cause I'm asleep!

6. I deal with lack of sleep better than anybody else I know. I am a night owl, many nights I will sacrifice sleep for quiet time to read a book or play video games. I am late to bed and late to rise. People say I live in my own little time zone.

Stability results were moderately high which suggests you are relaxed, calm, secure, and optimistic.

Orderliness results were moderately low which suggests you are, at times, overly flexible, improvised, and fun seeking at the expense of reliability, work ethic, and long term accomplishment.

Extraversion results were moderately high which suggests you are, at times, overly talkative, outgoing, sociable and interacting at the expense of developing your own individual interests and internally based identity.

trait snapshot:
messy, outgoing, open, self revealing, ambivalent about chaos, unpredictable, not good at saving money, social, likes large parties, likes to stand out, risk taker, quick to make friends, does not like to be alone, rash, fame seeking, sarcastic, craves attention, social chameleon, low self control, food lover, not rule conscious, weird, assertive, not a perfectionist, anti-authority, thrill seeker, vain, likes to fit in, reckless, emotionally sensitive, leisurely, trusting

This is the what-kind-of-jerk-are-you personality test. (i.e. I think it takes a pretty negative outlook on a personality) Take it for what it's worth, or take it if you're in the mood to be humbled a little.

Weird Wednesday #3

I have this craving to diet and binge all at the same time. Now I know how bulimics get their start.

Hell's Kitchen: Disappointing. The casting department outdid themselves; they found the most incompatible people in the world and put them in one kitchen. Drama aplenty, cooking was lacking, really lacking. The group got a few appetizers out, but no food to speak of. There are a few decent chefs and a few basket cases. The show should salvage itself after Gordon weeds out a few of the bozo's (himself not included of course).

The Next Food Network Star: Encouraging. Great personalities and a heavy focus on the food. The most obnoxious contestant was eliminated. A variety of cooking styles and combinations of cooking situations. This season looks to be better than both of its predecessors.

Reality TV

As a rule I hate Reality TV. But every summer I throw that rule out the window and I binge on Reality TV. I can't resist the The Next Food Network Star and Hell's Kitchen.

Of the two I can't decide what I like better. I like Hell's Kitchen because the show focuses on cooking, but it is heavy on contestant humiliation. The Next Food Network Star is much more family freindly, hardly any swearing and humilation, but the focus on finding a TV type personality causes me to lose interest from time to time. Between the two shows I'm happy.

Time to stop blogging, I'm watching the The Next Food Network Star premier.

Theme Park

Today we went to the local theme park and had a great time. The carousel is over 110 years old and has been in place for over 100 years. We just rode the kiddie rides today, none of the thrillers. Superwoman and I need to go back when we can get a sitter and hit some of the better roller coasters.

Sushi Seal

Well as usual, I am blatantly stealing from Teri. I can't help it, she finds the coolest blog-things and posts them. This time it is a seal editor. I made one for the blog. Check it out!

Make a seal.

Template Change

I changed up my blog template. What do you think about it?
