So am I the only one who keeps thinking of odd, strange things about themselves ever since writing the initial 7? Well I'm sure you're all thinking, I cannot handle anymore of her brand of crazy, but let me tell you something, people - I am about 8 different kinds of crazy. Let me fill you in on a few more.

First of all, I have to make myself wait until the day after Halloween to set up my Christmas decorations. Andy said I was as bad as CVS!

Second, I am kind of anti- woman. I know this sounds strange, but I just cannot help myself. I read once on a Starbucks cup, "There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women." That was a quote from Nancy Pelosi... I think of that every so often and how much I hate that quote. Anyway, I think that about 95% of women should not be allowed to drive. I'm sorry, but they just don't pay attention, don't know the rules, and are just plain bad drives. And don't be mistaken, I include myself in that category at times. I also think that about 98% of women shouldn't be allowed outside of the home without a responsible chaperon, which sadly enough, isn't always their husband, since they are about as clueless as their counterpart! If you have ever been the car with me, or on the phone with me as I drive, you've gotten a feel for this. Now, as you can see I am clearly not a people person, but I am not saying that I do not try to be nice and civil and respectful of these individuals feelings and overall life, but I am only human. And my human part wishes that other humans could function as adults and not small children in a bumper car arena or playground setting. To sum up, yes, I think that some women fall painfully into our stereotype and give us all a bad name. By the way, women are way too emotional, also.

As if this weren't enough to make you exclaim in horror the next time you see me, I have saved the best for last. If you have a bathroom with a tub that employs the use of a shower curtain, and if I have used said bathroom, then I can guarantee that I have checked behind the curtain to make sure nobody was there. I am as serious as Elmer Fudd in hunting season. Ask Anna. I report back to her each time that her bathtub is free of persons. I can't really explain this OCD quirk, but I cannot use the facilities until I have cleared this area.

Now, if I haven't done a well enough job of making you want to never see me again, that may mean you are as messed as I am. Sorry. Maybe we can help each other through these times, and avoid a special place in hell. I really hate that statement....

Okay, maybe you are just a little more crazy and anti-social than I originally thought. Do your parents know these things about you? And to think, you're the one who cares for my children every tuesday morning! I'm kidding. Did you look in my bathtub when you came here for playgroup? I sure hope it was clean.

I so know why we hang out because I also do the shower curtain thing everywhere I go and also every time I come home. Seriously, I always do it. I thought I was alone and now I am glad I am not. So I totally don't think your strange (at least on the shower curtain thing).
