Random thoughts, the Issa needs some sleep edition

-Seriously I do. Need sleep. Like four days worth of sleep. I haven't slept well in at least a week. Well, being my normal, not a good sleeper well. But it's bad right now. I have been going to bed late, laying there for hours and then being woken up early, by the most chewable baby in the world. He is forgiven for his early waking time schedule, because honestly he sleeps so well that I can't complain. Also, see the chewable thing above.

-Last night was the first Insta-Mom book club meeting. We read Revolutionary Road. You know the one they just made a movie out of? With Leo and Kate? As I was told last night, they weren't on a sinking boat. There were no icebergs. Which I would have known, had I read more than 25 pages of the book. I've never been a part of a real book club, but this one rocks. There is room for more of you, anyone can join. I am pretty sure the most we talked about books, in the two and a half hour chat, was when we were suggesting books for next time. My vote of the Ya-Ya's was shot down. Which makes sense, seeing how I only suggested it because I had already read the book and seen the movie. Like I said, anyone can join in...reading the book isn't mandatory.

-I won an award. See, isn't it pretty?

Kari at I left my Heart at Preschool gave it too me. Last week maybe? I am bad at memes, I rarely do them. But for Kari, I will. It's the honest scrap award. The word scrap is probably more applicable these days than honest, but I'll give it a go. I'm supposed to list ten honest things about me and then pass it on.

1. I only eat bananas if they are still green at the top. Any brown spot makes me gag. I throw away more bananas than is right.
2. I despise the words, popular bloggers. Even more than that, I despise the meaning behind it. A blogger is still a blogger, still a person, no matter how many followers they have.
3. I don't like drinks without ice in them. Water, anything really, either needs to be ice cold or served with ice. I am that asshat that the french hate.
4. I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. But I am thinking I will figure it out one of these days.
5. I go through almost a full pack of gum a day. I chew it for about five minutes and then throw it out. The thought of my breath smelling, freaks me out.
6. I have a very, very great sense of smell. Other peoples breath freaks me out.
7. I have toooooo many people in my Google reader. I can not keep up. I can't delete people, because it hurts me to do that, so a lot of times, I read every third post of someones. I feel bad about this, but it's the best I can do.
8. I am very clumsy. I hit walls, kick chairs and slam my hand in doors ever single day. Luckily, I don't bruise easily or people would wonder about my husband.
9. Coming back to blogging was the best decision I could have made.
10. Sometimes I take pictures of my kids, because I really like the outfit they have on.

I'm not so good at the passing it on part of memes. Just know, I think you all are awesome. But I'm giving this one to Stacey at Anymommy, partly because she is an honest writer, but mostly because I want to be just like her when I grow up.

Last night was a lot of fun. I never joined a book club before this and now I know why: I was waiting for this one to come along!

It's nice to find out someone else has an ice addiction/obsession besides me. :-)

I had a blast last night. Seriously, we are starting a read the book support group. Just you and I ;-)

Thank you. Your words are so sweet and they make my day, although you don't need to be just like anyone, I love you just the way you are.

I'm clumsy too. Well, I think I am. I wake up with odd bruises and scrapes all the time and have no idea what I did to get them. Sometimes I wake up looking like I climb barbed wire fences (and fall off them) for a living! :)

Love your list! #10 especially, cracked me up. I totally do that.

I just joined an online bookclub but if it doesn't work out, I'm definitely going to check out yours! I haven't read a real book in ages so not sure I could handle two at the same time!

Oh, we are so different, but I still love you. ; ) I freeze my skanky bananas for breads or smoothies, I drink water at room temperature and I cannot chew gum b/c about 3 minutes into a piece, I get the UNSTOPPABLE urge to swallow it. Seriously, it is like an obsession---I HAVE TO swallow it. I probably have 5 pounds of gum in my stomach.

Ok, I suck. I missed the book club. Sigh. Probably because I also need a crap load of sleep. Blah!

Oh, and the sense of smell? Mine is crazy too. I am nuts about bad breath. Also, making me paranoid about my own. And I have to drink water ice cold...otherwise I won't drink it. And I hate bananas with brown spots, too!

But I chew gum until it's long lost it's flavor. Not sure why.
