It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Sunday Survey

I’m back from my weekend away! And feeling lazy! So here’s a meme, lifted from K, and published on Monday. Because I’m such a little rebel…

My husband!

Do you go to the bathr​oom with the door open or close​d?​
In the evenings: Closed but not locked. During the day: Ajar.

Folded, though I don’t keep them in drawer, but in baskets on a shelf.

Side.

Are you a cuddl​er?
Yup.

What would​ I find if I looke​d UNDER​ your bed?
An 3′ x 4′ oil painting covered with a cotton sheet (really), and a large plastic storage bin in which I put the stocking stuffers I buy all year long.

Somet​hing that happe​ned today​ that made you angry​?​
​A friend dodging my suggestion that we get together. Again. (Is this person a friend? I’m increasingly unsure.)

With someone I trust (my husband tops the list) I talk at length. If there’s no one to talk to, or if I need to sort it out some more, I write. And sometimes, if I judge talking about it will only cause harm, or that it will pass more quickly if not given airtime, I keep it to myself.

Less than ten minutes, usually. Even on insomnia nights, I fall asleep all right, then wake up — ALL the way up!!! — two or three hours later.

Myspace? Puh-leeze. But I’ve had Heart of Glass running through my head for a solid week now… Anyone know how to turn that off?
