No not the kind that nuns wear! Although, the way my dating life has gone lately, I may need to invest in one soon.  -Kidding.  Kinda.  I digress.  Tonight's topic boys and girls, is bad habits.  Come on, we all have some.  Some of us try to hide them, some flaunt them, and some don't have a clue. Which category do you fall under and why?  I'm a hider and a flaunter. (I think I just made that word up) It just depends which habit I'm indulging in.  For instance, when I'm nervous,  I twirl a strand of my hair with my fingers.  It can go on for hours, just twirling it, round and round. Sometimes I don't even realize that I'm doing it. It's subconscious almost.  I also do this when I read.  Another bad habit I have, I bite my finger nails. I know, gross right???  Well at least I didn't say my toe nails.  Now THAT is gross!  It's a nervous habit that I've had since I was little.  That one used to  embarrass me.  So I always tried to hide it.  I would sometimes bite so much that it would cause my fingers to bleed.  Ewww, I'm all about "the gross" tonight!   I tend to bite my nails when I'm angsty or nervous about something.  For example, if I'm watching an Astros game, and it's the bottom of the 9th, two outs and bases loaded, and we're up to bat, I bite my nails.  Or, if something happens to someone I care about, I bite my nails.  Believe me, I bite so much that the nail salon ladies LOVE me! Yes that's right, I'm a faker -nail wearer that is.   I also bite my lower lip.  (Notice a trend here?)  I don't bite it hard or anything like that, I just bite down on it from time to time.  One of my favorite bad habits, is cussing.  I know, I know, what a potty mouth! But there's something about letting out an expletive that makes it feel so good to hear it come out of my mouth! Besides, I've been working for lawyers for over twenty something years, they cuss like sailors and I've learned well.  What about you fellow bloggers? What quirky bad habits do you have?
Share with me.  We're all friends here.

That's I have tonight folks.  You've been great! Don't forget to be good to the waitstaff on your way out.

Good night!

I have lots of bad habits. I say F___ way too many times a day. I drink too much Coke. Those are the only bad habits I want to share! I want people to like me!

I drink to much Diet Pepsi and sit on my butt to much. I put things off till tomorrow. So I will think about some more bad habits tomorrow.

My bad habit is procrastination. I mean, really, it's bad. I procrastinate for EVERYTHING! Why do today what you can put off to the very last minute, right? Well, that's how I think. :)

Yvonne said...

Belle - lol I'll still like you even if you have horrible habits!

CC- Thanks for dropping by! I totally get the diet pepsi habit, mine is coca-cola.

G-Thanks for the follow! I'm a little guilty of not doing much around the house too!

David- I totally forgot about my procrastination habit! Thanks for the reminder! lol

Hmm.... That's a very thought provoking question... I guess I'm a hider and not a flaunter, because I can't think of any right off hand. O.O *rushes off to do some deep self discovery*

You are hilarious! I hear ya on the nun habit! LOL

Bad habits...well, I swear like a sailor during a Cowboys' game...and Mavs...and LSU...and Longhorns. Oh dear. Honestly, I don't get that bad unless it's a tight game, in which case I will also pace, stopping only to rock back and forth like a mad person on the edge of the bed or chair.

One of my other habits is a little OCD-ish--I always multi-check ovens, stoves, door locks, etc. My mom says I'm like a mini-version of my papaw--he apparently did the exact same thing in the exact same way. lol

i always HATE cleaning my toilet. And my bathroom dressing table/sink is ALWAYS piled high my my stuff. I have good intentions suddenly and will clean like a maniac, then .....weeks...and months will go by and then its back to looking the way it did before.

I also sit on my butt a lot... well technically i am a designer so i have to but its gotten me USED to it.

oh and if i find a tv show online that i love, i will watch episodes til the sun rises in the sky again!!! EEK!! ok too much revealed!

Yvonne said...

Sunny - haha, good luck with your "self-discovery" project!

Frisky - How funny! I do the same thing with my alarm clock. I check it and re-check it about a dozen times before I go to sleep.

LD- lol I've been known to catch the sun rising while watching my shows online!

Bad habits: I cannot stop eating yummy foods especially sweets. I am obsessed with my toe nails, especially the baby ones that grow out/up and not straight along my toes. I am constantly clipping them to a point wherein they barely exist. There are more, but I'm a hider.

I used to bite my nails like that but stopped a few years ago. I used to smoke but stopped that too. Now it's procrastination, being messy, and biting the inside of my cheek (strange I know but it replaced nail biting for some reason).

I used to have the pulling but now that has been eliminated, although I do scratch my scalp where the bald spot is slowly disappearing a lot to feel the improvement.
