Some blog entries I found interesting

FeministaMama posts a profound writing on childbirth

Julielenore posts “10 Reasons Why Gay Marriage is Wrong”

I am not sure how I even found this blog anymore.  It was linked from somebody else and I found I was still thinking about the entry a few days later and had to look through my history to find it.  The entry is about Healing and Time.  Very thought provoking.

I was tagged by Bionic Squirrel recently…

Five Quirky Things about me

  1. I like the inside of my cup to be white.  I also like the middle part of a plate, where the food sits, to be white.  Patterns and colors under my food unsettle me.  Around the rim is fine, just not under the food.
  2. I have to have a blanket covering at least a part of me, even when it is hot outside, to be able to sleep.  However, no matter how cold it is, I don’t want blanket touching my feet. (if it is really cold, the blanket can be a little ‘tent’ around me feet, as long is it isn’t laying on them)
  3. I touch everything.  I am very tactile.  Going through a clothing store I pull my hand over the material and only examine to consider it after it has passed my subconscious touch test.  I didn’t even know I did this until my mom pointed it out to me.
  4. If I am enjoying my food, I hum.  Again, I had no idea I did this until Zach’s aunt pointed it out.  I denied it at first, but came to realize she was absolutely right…and I can’t really help it.  I have to concentrate to NOT hum if I am in a situation where I need to be quieter.
  5. I have a difficult time sitting like a normal person.  I am almost always sitting on one leg, or with my ankle wedged under the opposite knee, or sitting with my legs propped up in some manner.  I prefer sitting crosslegged on the floor to sitting in a chair in a lot of situations.  This is why I don’t wear dresses very often. lol.

    Your quirky things can be easily explained…

    1. White inside your cup, etc. is so very (your) Grandma S.  She almost couldn’t drink out of cups/mugs that weren’t white.

    2. I can tell you that I need a cover too. The rest of the families I can’t tell you for sure.

    3. That is SOOOOO your Grandma E.  Of course it’s also Grandma S. She was tactile too. Much to the chagrin of your Aunt J. who usually ended up taking/sending clothing back if it was ’scratchy’.

    4. Your hum I’m not sure about. Your Grandma S was verbal in a sub conscience way too. Remember her ‘Uh huh..uh huh’ when she didn’t like what was going on?

    5. Sitting oddly is from your Grandma E. Even on the trips we have taken, she sat with her feet up on the dashboard. She rarely sits with both feet on the floor or her legs crossed at the knees.

    So…you come by these thing naturally. I don’t know if this makes you feel any better or not, but thats my story, and I’m stickin’ to it!

    Oooo, I do the weird sitting thing too. I like to actually sit on one foot, like my left foot is under my right butt cheek now. This drove one of the people I worked with absolutely nuts, too, for some odd reason…

    My uncle is a food hummer, very unusual.

    Incidentally, I have had many a doctor/chiropractor/acupuncturist tell me that one of the reasons I have such bad sciatic pain is because I sit in unusual postition and this throws my hips out of balance.  Hmmmm.

    I love that your mom commented.  Very cool to know where your habits come from.

    I am #2, ESPECIALLY the foot thing. And my dad is #4– and I never noticed it until my mom pointed it out to me one day.
