Little Confessions

in All Posts


Sometimes I run to the Twilight score and pretend I’m a speedy vampire.


I brush my teeth in the shower.  It’s more efficient.


My personal pet peeve is unnecessary emails that simply say, “Okay!” or “Thanks!”  When I accidentally send one myself, I nearly kneel over in shame.


Every Sunday, I wash the sheets, and the Husband and I have a little argument about whether clean sheets actually feel different or it’s all in my head.


Once, I waited for five hours to meet Ricky Martin, and when I finally did come face-to-face with him, I actually asked him to kiss me.  He obliged (on the cheek)!


When I have a new favorite song, I listen to it dozens and dozens of times on repeat until I’m completely sick of it and never want to hear it again.  I also do this with food (if I never eat a bowl of Panda Puffs again, it will be too soon).


My mom’s middle name is tattooed on my hip (Joy).


I am jealous of the Husband’s eyelashes.  They are the prettiest, longest man lashes ever.


I talk to my dogs… out loud.  No surprise there, I’m sure.



  • Vicki Mc January 23, 2012, 9:32 pm

    It’s not all in your head, clean sheets definitely feel different (better)! Saturday is clean sheet day in my house and I look forward to it all week. I’d probably wash the sheets nightly but my husband would think I’m weirder than I am!

    • Jessica January 24, 2012, 5:10 pm

      I like the thank you emails, too!

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey January 23, 2012, 9:34 pm

    I like the “okay” or “thanks” emails because I like knowing they were received and the message was across. Otherwise I spend time worrying that they never read it!

    • caryn January 23, 2012, 9:37 pm

      i’m the same way! i hate wondering if the recipient accidentally deleted it or something. i probably worry too much though. 😛

      fun list to read 🙂

    • Christena January 24, 2012, 5:39 am

      My pet peeve is actually people who don’t acknowledge (important) emails. I’m not talking about personal communication, but more work-related. I actually really appreciate when some one takes the time to let me know they read my email and I try to do it also. Saves time for both parties. Especially when you are working in an office with your email open all day long and several things going on at once.

      • Rebecca January 24, 2012, 10:16 am

        Agreed. I’m super peeved at work if I keep doing something for someone and they DIDN’T respond with a thanks. Courtesy is never annoying. The 5 seconds it takes to delete a “thanks” e-mail is less annoying than potentially being rude by not thanking someone.

    • Natasha January 25, 2012, 11:32 am

      I like getting the thank you and ok emails too. I need to know that it was read!

  • CheezyK January 23, 2012, 9:35 pm

    Clean sheets definitely feel different to week old ones! They have a really nice clean, crisp feel to them. Also, you’re in good company on the talking to dogs thing … just as long as you don’t start hearing them talk back okay? 🙂

  • Susan January 23, 2012, 9:35 pm

    Omg, I say the same thing about my husband’s eyelashes too,,,

    • Jen January 24, 2012, 1:02 am

      Me TOO!!! 🙂

  • Ange January 23, 2012, 9:36 pm

    I have entire conversations with my cat. It’s a good think he’s talkative and answers 🙂

  • Luv What You Do January 23, 2012, 9:37 pm

    What a great post!!!

    Clean sheets have a totally different feel and I am convinced it is the only reason I can fall asleep on Sunday nights.

  • Heather @ Bake, Run, Live January 23, 2012, 9:38 pm

    Yup- clean sheets feel better!
    I talk to my cats…and sometimes they answer me!

    My little confession…I eat chocolate after every meal (yup, even breakfast!).

  • Cate January 23, 2012, 9:38 pm

    Clean sheets definitely feel different. I love them!

  • Michelle January 23, 2012, 9:39 pm

    It’s nice to know that I’m not the only one who loves listening to the scores from movies! And Twilight has one of my favorite scores, too.

    I talk to my dogs as well. Although I think that’s pretty normal amongst dog lovers!

  • emily January 23, 2012, 9:40 pm

    Fun! I nodded my head to most of those, except I hate Ricky Martin and my sheets confession would be the opposite (we don’t wash them regularly!).

    • Emily January 24, 2012, 8:05 am

      I was in Vegas once with my dad and one of his buddies who LOOKS like Ricky Martin. Seriously, exactly like him. And we were in the elevator with some girls about my age (mid-late twenties) who thought he was Ricky Martin… let’s say he took MAJOR advantage of that and the girls went with him to his room… Eeep!

  • Anna @ Blissfully Banana January 23, 2012, 9:44 pm

    I love this post! It was totally fun to read! I am definitely one who talks to my animals too! 🙂
    LOVE the feel of freshly washed sheets the *DO* feel different! 😀

  • Kristen@Change of Pace January 23, 2012, 9:47 pm

    Seriously the sheets feel so much better. Crisper and more snuggly if that makes sense 🙂

  • Melissa @TryingtoHeal January 23, 2012, 9:49 pm

    I talk to my cat too. Out loud. All the time.

    And I do the same thing with songs. I’m currently playing Jason Mraz’s new song on repeat like it’s going out of style.

  • Sneakers2sandals January 23, 2012, 9:51 pm

    I actually think it would be weird if someone didn’t talk to their dog. Doesn’t everyone? I do baby talk.

    My confession is that I’d rather have a top of the line washer and drier over a designer purse.

  • Jenny January 23, 2012, 9:51 pm

    I talk to my dog outloud too! It’s just me and him at home now since my guy is gone for awhile so I need someone to talk to!! I think I would talk to myself if he wasn’t here so I guess its a good thing that he is…makes me look a little more sane! 🙂

  • Shari January 23, 2012, 9:52 pm

    I am the EXACT same way with songs. I think my all-time record was with Kelly Clarkson’s “My Life Would Suck Without You.” Pretty sure the play count jumped by two dozen within two days!

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb January 23, 2012, 9:52 pm

    the clean sheets are definitely NOT in your head!

  • Sana January 23, 2012, 9:52 pm

    I always always alwayssssss brush my teeth in the shower. I get bored otherwise.

  • Leila @ Spinach and Skittles January 23, 2012, 9:55 pm

    LOL on the email response thing. I hate getting those emails, but I always send them because I’m a worry wort and am concerned that I might offend someone if they were expecting me to respond.

  • Jen January 23, 2012, 9:56 pm

    I’m guilty of the dog talk too (sometimes in a baby voice). The sheet thing – it’s not in your head. I change mine 3 times a week. It just feels sooooo good to crawl into clean sheets after a long day.

    • CaitlinHTP January 24, 2012, 9:47 am

      I am jealous of your fresh sheet action!

  • Jillian Hitt January 23, 2012, 9:56 pm

    This post makes me laugh because my co-worker and I have been listening to the new Jason Mraz single “I Won’t Give Up” on repeat for two solid days. I have to play new songs I love on repeat until I never want to hear them again!

  • Molly @ RDexposed January 23, 2012, 9:58 pm

    Those are all pretty normal to me (with the exception of the teeth brushing! ha).
    I loooove clean sheets!
    And I talk to any dog out loud! I see a person walking their dog while I’m driving and will still say, “Hi dog!”

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) January 23, 2012, 9:58 pm

    My mom’s middle name is Joy too! It’s actually what she goes by. I brush my teeth in the shower sometimes to save time and water and I totally eat the same thing over and over again when I find a new favorite!

  • Annie @ Naturally Sweet Recipes January 23, 2012, 10:00 pm

    My husband and I are getting a puppy in just a couple of weeks and I plan on talking to him all the time!! And honestly, the best thing ever is falling into bed in warm clean sheet. Love that!

  • Ashley January 23, 2012, 10:03 pm

    I’m glad someone else shares my views on brushing their teeth in the shower. My friends and family all think I’m weird.

    • Valerie January 23, 2012, 10:30 pm

      What???? I don’t understand this!

      Isn’t brushing your teeth in the shower less efficient because it takes longer and you are wasting water?

      I’m not trying to be rude, I am just honestly confused, I don’t see the point!

      • Laine January 24, 2012, 7:15 am

        I brush my teeth in the shower. I’m not wasting water, I like to be in the shower. I’m not just jumping in and out and trying to be efficient. And it saves my sink from toothpaste splatter.

        I’m not OCD so I just rest it on the side of the tub.

        I have one toothbrush inside the shower, and one on the counter, that way I’m not always reaching somewhere to find it.

      • CaitlinHTP January 24, 2012, 9:40 am

        It’s the toothpaste splatter!! i don’t have to wash my face afterwards 🙂

      • Carolyn @ cool beans January 24, 2012, 10:13 am

        Also, it’s time efficient. You can brush your teeth and lather up at the same time if you practice! It’s like patting your head and rubbing your belly simultaneously.

        I’m so glad other people do this – my husband thinks it’s gross.

    • Christena January 24, 2012, 5:44 am

      What do you do with the toothbrush after you are finished? Do you step outside the shower to put it down on the counter? I hate getting out after I’m already in! I’m also weird and a bit OCD about the surfaces my toothbrush head comes in contact with. I have a bathtub/shower so there is nowhere to put it except for the ledge of the tub (NO WAY) or the shower caddy (no)….

      • CaitlinHTP January 24, 2012, 9:48 am

        I just lay it on the side. I’m not so OCD about toothbrushes I guess.

  • Karen @ Run Shop Travel January 23, 2012, 10:14 pm

    I am not a huge fan of the “OK” or “Thanks” emails either; sometimes if I have asked someone for a lot of info or if they got back to me sooner than I asked I will send the “thanks” one; but really, I feel like they just clog up your mailbox!

    PS I am on your side of the clean sheets debate; definitely makes a difference!

  • Taylor January 23, 2012, 10:14 pm

    In college I would brush my teeth in the shower all the time! And I talk to my dog & cats like they’re people! Well they practically are right?! 😉

  • Claire January 23, 2012, 10:16 pm

    Ummm…clean sheets DEFINITELY feel different!

  • Emily @ The Swallow Flies January 23, 2012, 10:22 pm

    I cannot tell you how jealous my 16-year-old self would’ve been had she known you got a kiss from Ricky Martin.

    Truth be told, my 28-year-old self is still a bit jealous.

  • Jaclyn January 23, 2012, 10:25 pm

    Sheets absolutely feel different when they are clean! I get the best nights sleep when I put on clean sheets.

  • Becky January 23, 2012, 10:27 pm

    You’re in good company!!! Clean sheets are the BEST. Also, anyone that doesn’t talk to their animal is obviously NOT an true animal lover. I talk to my dog ALL DAY LONG. :p

    Great pet peeve about the email. I have so many pet peeves it’s pathetic. My current one is vague Facebook status updates. SO ANNOYING! For example, “I just don’t understand some people.” Or the ever popular sad face = 🙁 JUST SAY IT ALREADY! It’s like people are prying for attention. Aaaannnnddd…I’m off my soap-box! Ha ha!

    • CaitlinHTP January 24, 2012, 9:48 am

      Haha I love melodramatic Facebook updates!!!

  • Alison January 23, 2012, 10:36 pm

    I do the exact same thing with songs and food. No shame.

  • Mary @ Rabbitsand Runs January 23, 2012, 10:37 pm

    Talking to pets seems totally normal to me, but then again, I have entire one-sided conversations with my rabbits!

  • Megan January 23, 2012, 10:45 pm

    I am that way with emails…but also texts. Sometimes the “OK” is either not needed or seems impersonal!

    I talk to my dog all the time!!!

  • Julia January 23, 2012, 10:47 pm

    I also brush my teeth in the shower.

    Little confession: Like an above commenter, I talk to my car. Her name is Tara.

  • Linz @ ItzLinz January 23, 2012, 10:47 pm

    Clean sheets DO feel clean!

  • Deva @ Deva by Definition January 23, 2012, 10:47 pm

    Clean sheets are definitely different-feeling than slept-in ones! They’re smoother and crisper somehow. I love clean sheets :-).

  • Laura January 23, 2012, 10:58 pm

    I used to practice my french by speaking to my cats. And… the only french I currently use is when my dog is “talking.” Obviously.

  • Diana January 23, 2012, 10:58 pm

    I’m jealous of my boyfriends lips. They never (ever!) get chapped.

    Also – thought of you when I recently found out about this site: It reminded me of the gym iphone application you posted about awhile back. It seems like a quick and convenient way to track calories (if that’s your cup of tea).

    🙂 Diana

    • CaitlinHTP January 24, 2012, 9:49 am

      Interesting app! I wonder how accurate it is.

  • Jamila6452 January 23, 2012, 11:01 pm

    Twilight has a good soundtrack! Although I’ve never pretended to be a vampire while running to it, but I think I will give it a try. 🙂

    My husband and son both have impossibly long, thick, curly, dark, gorgeous eyelashes. And I have none. Boo! (My sisters-in-law all have them too, so it’s not just a boy thing, but still.)

  • Amber @ Bold, Busy, Blessed January 23, 2012, 11:26 pm

    I always brush my teeth in the shower! I do it while I’m trying to get the last bit of conditioner out of my hair, totally efficient!

    I always talk to my dog like she’s a person. Or sometimes in weird baby voices. Why do dogs make us weird??? Haha.

    I hate boys with beautiful eyelashes, it just makes me super jealous haha. Mine are so short, it’s downright sad! Mascara for the win!

  • Diana January 23, 2012, 11:26 pm

    You never cease to make me giggle! 🙂

    Your e-mail point made me think: remember before phones had unlimited texting and someone would text you back “K” – like, REALLY, you had to take up one of my texts with one letter?!

  • Jolene ( January 23, 2012, 11:26 pm

    Clean sheets definitely feel different – softer I think!?

    Also I get sooooooo grossed out when the husband brushes his teeth in the shower (which he has stopped doing as far as I know). I can’t imagine how anyone can brush their teeth with warm/hot water, which is what bothers me the most about it. Brushing teeth with warm water gives me the heebie jeebies!

  • Grace @ What Grace Cooked January 23, 2012, 11:34 pm

    1. I also brush my teeth in the shower. It is definitely more efficient!
    2. Clean sheets definitely feel better – I think I don’t sleep as well on sheets that are “dirty”! (By dirty, I mean they have been in use for a week…so I guess it’s all relative 🙂 )
    3. I actually like when people send short emails back like that – so I know they got/maybe read my message – it’s kind of a courtesy thing. Although on days when I’m getting tons of email, I understand how it’s kind of annoying too.
    4. I don’t know anyone who owns a dog who DOESN’T talk out loud to the pup!

  • Carly January 23, 2012, 11:34 pm

    LOL @ the husband’s eyelashes one! haha

  • Ruby Leigh January 23, 2012, 11:39 pm

    You are right, the sheets do feel better clean

  • Eliza January 23, 2012, 11:43 pm

    I have a guide dog pup and I talk to him out loud even in public, begging him to PLEASE not pee in the supermarket. I am always talking to him and people think I am crazy

  • Rebecca January 23, 2012, 11:58 pm

    The eyelash thing–I just like eyelashes in general. I think they look better naturally, on anyone.

    I tend to walk around the house while brushing my teeth. I don’t like just standing at the sink and brushing–it feels like I’m wasting time or something. Not that it does me much good, haha.

  • Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] January 24, 2012, 12:21 am

    I am with you on confession #6. Thank goodness for Grooveshark + Spotify 🙂

  • ANna January 24, 2012, 12:24 am

    “When I have a new favorite song, I listen to it dozens and dozens of times on repeat until I’m completely sick of it and never want to hear it again. I also do this with food (if I never eat a bowl of Panda Puffs again, it will be too soon)”

    This is so me, all of it!! I have an obsessive peronsality and these are 2 big ones. Currently my song on repeat is “Pray” by Everly and my food of choice is Nutella!

  • Khushboo January 24, 2012, 12:35 am

    A bigger pet peeve of mine is when people say “K”…if you’re too lazy to type the whole word out, don’t bother replying! GAH! And I’m just the same with OD’ing a food/song I love!

  • Jen January 24, 2012, 12:39 am

    Ahahahahaha…posts like this are (a big part of) the reason I love you, you speedy little vampire, you! Although, I just have to say, I never thought that I would see the day that you were hatin’ on Panda Puffs…I do understand, though! 🙂

    Also, I totally get the beautiful man-lashes jealousy! 🙂

    • CaitlinHTP January 24, 2012, 9:50 am

      🙂 Thanks.

  • Shelley January 24, 2012, 12:41 am

    HAH @ number one. Nearly spat my drink out over my monitor. Next time I run I’m going to do the same thing!

  • Rachel January 24, 2012, 2:10 am

    I often hear people tell me that they brush their teeth in the shower because it is “more efficient.” I don’t understand how anyone can think this–you waste gallons and gallons of water the longer you are in the shower. You’re never brushing your teeth at the same time that you take care of other things in the shower, unless you have three arms.

    Emails that only say “okay” or “thanks” drive me bonkers too. It’s right up there with voicemails that just say, “Call me.” If I saw the missed call, I’ll call you. Leave a voicemail if you have an actual message!

    • CaitlinHTP January 24, 2012, 9:50 am

      Because I stand in the shower mindlessly staring at the wall anyway, so I might as well make use of the time to brush my teeth! <— twisted logic?

  • Amanda January 24, 2012, 2:20 am

    This post genuinely warmed my heart 🙂 I may have to download the twilight score and give that one a try!

  • sarahMTSBB January 24, 2012, 6:18 am

    Oh, Caitlin! You’re so fun. Thanks for brightening my mood as I’m suffering from work burnout/ frustration/anger and kinda want to do nothing but cry, watch bad tv, and plan my way out of this job with Crazy Boss #2. 🙂 Instead, I’m now going to the gym. Before 7 am. Impressive!

  • Caroline Calcote January 24, 2012, 6:56 am

    I appreciate the “thanks” or “ok” e-mails and texts. How else do you know that they got your e-mail and agree with what you said?

    • Laura January 24, 2012, 9:21 am

      I agree, Caroline. Especially in the workplace–wastes more time trying to get an answer when the person could have just said “ok”, etc.

      • CaitlinHTP January 24, 2012, 9:51 am

        But they alwayssssssssssss get your emaiL! That’s the point of email!

        • Laura January 24, 2012, 11:11 am

          Not necessarily unfortunately. Sure, they receive it but don’t always read it. Maybe it’s just my office, incompetent lol

        • Cat January 24, 2012, 3:13 pm

          Yeah, I don’t agree with this. I think it’s gracious and nice to reply to an email. I ALWAYS appreciate it when someone says thank you. Given the amount of email many of us deal with, I think there is value in acknowledging receipt, so you know it didn’t get lost. Also, spam folders do eat stuff and I’ve definitely had people say they emailed and I didn’t get it. Maybe a server issue, but nonetheless…

  • Shannon January 24, 2012, 7:01 am

    This makes me laugh, because there is a little boy in my daughter’s kindergarten class with lashes so dark, thick, and long (and curved!) that I can hardly believe they are real. I volunteer once a week doing one-on-one reading practice with the children in her classroom, so I get to sit and work with every child. When it’s this little boy’s turn, I literally stare in awe at his eyelashes the whole time he’s reading his little book aloud to me. His lashes are about 100x thicker and longer than mine are. Of course, I’m a super-pale Scandinavian blonde with almost no lashes. But still.

  • Roselyn @ A Balanced Fit January 24, 2012, 7:02 am

    Clean sheets DO feel different! Hello! 🙂

  • Alex @ Raw Recovery January 24, 2012, 7:16 am

    I do the same thing with songs and listen to one over and over on repeat and then I get sick of it and can’t listen to it for years.

  • Steph @ A Life without Ice Cream January 24, 2012, 7:46 am

    Great post! I also do the song on repeat thing – even in the car!

  • Dan @ Essentials of Nutrition January 24, 2012, 7:57 am

    My god, isn’t holding conversations with your dogs the whole point….?

  • AmandaRunsNY January 24, 2012, 8:00 am

    Clean sheets do feel different! You are not out of your mind. I actually like my sheets best after being slept in them once. But I also think that’s cause I tell my launder to not use softener. (yes, I pay someone to do my laundry, but its only because the closest laundromat is 3 blocks and 6 flights of stairs away).

  • Gabby @ Gabby's Gluten-free January 24, 2012, 8:15 am

    I’m totally convinced that clean sheets feel better! It’s just a fact of life.

    I talk to my dog all the time and she just looks at me like I’m crazy. Yesterday, I told my husband that if we plan on traveling for a year in Europe (we we may do), I would have to skype my dog to make sure she didn’t forget about us.

  • Heather January 24, 2012, 8:15 am

    worse than an email that says “thanks” or “okay” ?

    a text message.
    that says.
    the letter.
    K. the letter.
    you abbrivated OKAY to K. not even OK?

    THIS, my friend, may be my #7 pet peeve.

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin January 24, 2012, 8:19 am

    I like the “Ok” or “Thanks” emails/texts because otherwise I go crazy wondering whether the person read it or not!

    LOL at your Ricky Martin story! Don’t worry, I would do the same thing if it was John Mayer. 😉

    • Melissa @ Be Not Simply Good January 24, 2012, 11:22 am

      I agree. The simple “Okay” or “Thanks” messages let you know that the person got the message and is on board with whatever it’s about. No reply at all = I have no idea if you got the message.

  • Lee January 24, 2012, 8:21 am

    Not only do I talk to my dog, but I talk for him (in a specific voice) when my husband talks to him.

  • Meghan @ CarmanClan January 24, 2012, 8:22 am

    I agree on the clean sheets and I also talk to my dogs out loud (cats too).

  • Natalie @fitjamericangirl January 24, 2012, 8:32 am

    I definitely talk to my cats out loud, in front of people. I know my babies know exactly what I’m saying.
    I once saw Taye Digs walking down 5th Ave in New York and I yelled at him “Ooh you so fine”. (Shame)

  • Sarah January 24, 2012, 9:03 am

    I am feeling the same way about Panda Puffs right now. I was so excited that they were safe for me to eat, so I was eating them daily for nearly three months. I hope I didn’t completely burn out on them!

  • car January 24, 2012, 9:05 am

    love this post, so fun! clean sheets absolutely feel better!

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife January 24, 2012, 9:09 am

    HAhaha! I do the SAME thing with songs!

  • Nena January 24, 2012, 9:12 am

    LOL. fun! Thanks for sharing.

  • Dana January 24, 2012, 9:22 am

    haha! Sheets are definitely better after having been washed. I always have about 4 songs on my ‘running mix’ that are my favorites at that time…I listen to them over and over again until I hate them. I talk to my cat.

  • Ericka January 24, 2012, 9:35 am

    This whole teeth brushing in the shower thing is blowing me away. I’ve never knew ANYONE did that, and now I’m seeing tons of people commenting that they do! I wonder how common it is.

  • Lindsay January 24, 2012, 9:49 am

    Doesn’t everyone talk to their pets!? I definitely have full on conversations (well, one sided ones!) with my dog…

  • Sharon January 24, 2012, 9:50 am

    worse than just talking to your cats – when we go on vacation we call them ever so often to “check in” and leave messages on the machine.

    • CaitlinHTP January 24, 2012, 9:52 am

      HAHAH LOVE IT. I talk to the dogs on the phone when I am gone for work too!

  • Poptartyogini January 24, 2012, 9:54 am

    Clean sheets feel different. And by different, I mean awesome.

  • Julia January 24, 2012, 10:24 am

    I brush my teeth in the shower too!!! Everyone in my family has SUCH a hangup about it and I still cant figure it out why..its just multi-tasking!

    I wash my sheets every Monday-and TOTALLY can tell the difference 😉 oh, and I talk to my dog all the time…even on the phone. Sometimes I wish I could call him from work and talk to him on an answering machine-too bad we dont have one of those machines that plays it out loud while you are leaving the message!

  • Ashley {The North Carolina Cowgirl} January 24, 2012, 10:57 am

    I’m with you on playing a new song over and over until you’re sick of it and talking to your dog out loud. I talk to my dogs and my horses. Heck when I’m trail riding I can have hour long conversations with my horse. LOL 🙂

  • Michelle January 24, 2012, 11:32 am

    Its not in your head – clean sheets feel totally different!!!!! 🙂

  • Tiffany January 24, 2012, 11:44 am

    Clean sheet night is the best. I think I sleep better when the sheets are clean!

  • Sarah January 24, 2012, 11:46 am

    Clean sheets do feel different!
    Oh, and I also talk to animals out loud. What’s wrong with that? 😉

  • Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs January 24, 2012, 1:48 pm

    Haha, what a fun list of quirks 🙂 We all have them!

  • Kristin January 24, 2012, 1:50 pm

    I like to listen to Britney Spears while I’m working out/walking across campus and pretend like I am in a music video :-p

  • Brigid January 24, 2012, 1:59 pm

    I totally brush my teeth in the shower. Hello efficiency!

  • Jamie January 24, 2012, 2:17 pm

    Clean sheets really DO feel different.

    I do that with food too. When I’m on a food I’ll eat it every day until the mere sight of it makes me nauseous.

    My daughter got her dad’s gorgeous man lashes. I get excited every time she has some kind of recital that requires makeup because then I get to put mascara on my dream lashes.

    Doesn’t EVERYONE talk to their pets?

  • Amber K January 24, 2012, 2:39 pm

    Clean sheets absolutely feel differently. Mostly because I move a lot during the night. And if I take the sheets completely off to clean them they go on a lot tighter. And then I will spend each night moving them all around, lol.

  • Robyne January 24, 2012, 3:12 pm

    Yah! I brush my teeth in the shower too. Less mess, more time efficient, I don’t need to see my teeth to know they are clean, and what else and I gonna do while I condition my hair.

  • Carin January 24, 2012, 4:05 pm

    I was thinking about this and asked my husband “do I have many idiosyncracies?” and he just about wet himself laughing!
    I DON’T brush my teeth in the shower, imagine I’m an athletic vampire (presumably only possible when running at night anyway?), have a tattoo (yet – 3 weeks away!) or have any desire to kiss Ricky Martin (are you a fag hag? I did have a crush on George Michael though… pre his coming out, I’m that old).
    I DO like clean sheets, get obsessive over songs, hate stupid, pointless email acknowledgements (if you’re gonna bother to email “OK”, at least put something else positive or vaguely human in there too) and talk to my cat.
    My husband doesn’t have particularly beautiful eyelashes but my 2 year old son does.

    MY peeves are poor grammar, incorrect apostrophes, food that’s all mushed up together (I like separate taste experiences!), and those teeny little football (soccer) strips that people put up in the back windows of their cars, presumably to denote their devotion to a particular team. Why? Is it in case they’re short of a player at some point and the only option is to use a s**t-hot midget, who without the strip wouldn’t be identifiable? Do these people hold out hope that, in this instance, they’d be able to say “Wait! I can help! I happen to have a strip in just your size hanging in my car, awaiting this very requirement! Hold on while I go and get it for you!”. I don’t know whether you even have these things in the US… presumably they’d have to have teeny-tiny helmets there to complete the set. They’re far less common here in NZ, but unfortunately prevalent in the UK (as you may have noticed on your trip).
    Hmmm. Rant over. Glad to have that off my chest.

  • Amanda January 24, 2012, 6:01 pm

    I was wondering what happened to the panda puffs….

  • Heather January 24, 2012, 6:25 pm

    Clean sheets do feel different! At least I think so and we can’t BOTH be wrong. 🙂

  • Cindy January 24, 2012, 7:12 pm

    I brush my teeth in the shower too! It’s so efficient and I actually brush longer so it makes me feel like my teeth are getting super clean!

  • Gillian G. @ When Bread Is Broken January 24, 2012, 7:14 pm

    Wait…there are people who DON’T talk to their dogs out loud? Surely you lie.

  • jen January 24, 2012, 8:53 pm

    i JUST had this conversation with my husband about the unnecessary texts/email! i hate the “ok”, or “thanks”, or HELlO, how about the “winkie face”?????? i hate that one. he disagrees with me, and thinks im nuts.

    also, new sheets CLEARLY feel different! they are SO new and crisp feeling!

  • Suzanne January 24, 2012, 10:54 pm

    Clean sheets DO feel different! And so SO much better.

  • Jen January 25, 2012, 1:27 am

    Check, Check, and Check. I’ve brushed my teeth in the shower for years… way more efficient.

  • Jen January 25, 2012, 8:36 am

    Um, I talk to other people’s dogs haha (I’m not totally insane, I talk to the people first and I usually know them). And I talk to cats. And squirrels…

  • Sara January 25, 2012, 9:42 am

    I like your Twilight idea. My boss told me in a review to not send emails that just say “OK” or “thanks.” I guess I always sent those because I wanted her to know I got her email? I am jealous of my husband’s eyelashes too and I talk to my dogs and cats–often and loudly.

    • Sara January 25, 2012, 9:43 am

      P.S. fill me in on brushing teeth in shower–how is it more efficient? You need your hands to wash …

  • adie (all of the above) January 25, 2012, 10:17 am

    1. I was wondering where the panda puffs went in your breakfasts!
    2. My mom’s middle name is Joy, too!
    3. Clean sheets totally feel better, especially when fresh out of the dryer and still warm. Never give up on that argument!

  • Katy @ HaveYouHurd January 25, 2012, 12:00 pm

    I totally talk to my dogs too.

    I’ve also kissed a celeb BUT he is a huge loser and hated by most of America so I try not to kiss and tell.

  • Lisa January 25, 2012, 4:22 pm

    I talk to my cats all the time. 🙂

  • Jillian @ Reshape Your Life January 27, 2012, 10:32 pm

    Don’t feel bad about talking to your dogs… I talk to my deaf dog all the time, I like to think he can feel what I’m saying… lol

  • Sophie @ threetimesf January 28, 2012, 9:52 am

    Fresh sheets do definitely feel SO MUCH BETTER!
