I’ve been a bad, bad girl… (Blog challenge day 9)

Bad habits. Dun dun dunnnnnn…

blog challenge

Oh, don’t look at me like that. We’ve all got ’em.

Bad habits… Sadly, none of mine are very impressive. I’ve never enjoyed being drunk, and the only drugs I’ve ever used were prescribed or OTC. I do have a bad habit of overdoing the Advil when my head is bad, but my doctor said it was OK. Sometimes. I’m not a womanizer, or a man… anizer.

  • I drink too much caffeine
  • I have a habit of spending time on the computer instead of doing what I should be doing (usually housework)
  • I pick at things. My mascara, birch tree bark, my husband’s sunburns… sick, I know. It’s a bad habit.
  • putting my work ahead of– you guessed it!– housework (and having a social life, and leaving the house…)
  • I only stick with things as long as they interest me
  • I have a habit of not tidying up after myself right away, and then forgetting to do it later

Super boring, right? Sorry I can’t offer anything better. Really, my worst habits can be narrowed down to procrastination and laziness.

I’m a charming and mysterious woman, aren’t I?

*eye roll*

I don’t know why you people hang out with me.

Hey, did the title make anyone else think of this? Put some clothes on, Fiona… (public almost-nudity: not a bad habit I share)

    Ugh, she always looked anorexic to me in that vid. They say the camera adds 10 lbs, which makes me wonder how much skinnier she actually was at that time. Aaah, the good ol’ days of Fiona Apple and such. She does have a killer voice though.

    My worst bad habit right now isn’t anything major either, but it’s the snooze button fiasco. I think I actually pressed it repeatedly for an hour this morning. I’ve got to break that habit… seriously…

    And I hang out because of our common love of bad engrish and Empire Records. I mean, Empire Records is ’nuff said right there!

    • Kate Sparkes

      Aah, remember the ’90s, when Calvin Klein told us it was cool to look like an anorexic heroin addict? That video actually freaks me out, but I never want to say anything in case she was just naturally skinny. :/

      • Jae

        I don’t think anyone over 18 is “naturally skinny” like that. Especially if they’re in the entertainment biz. Yeah, I could never be a model. They’d be like, “Jae, WHAT are you EATING?!” And I’d be like, “Chocolate chip cookie dough. Why?” And so I blame cc cookie dough for killing my model aspirations. Oh well, pleasant death anyhow.

  • L. Marie

    I’m with Jae on Fiona. She does look awfully thin.

    Your bad habits are so like mine, except I don’t pick at your husband’s sunburns.

  • Jade Reyner

    This is my testing comment… but I just wanted to say that I can tick all of the same boxes as you, except for the coffee – I’m a tea drinker! Gonna make this short otherwise if it doesn’t come through, I’ve typed my fingers to the bone for nothing! Lol. 🙂

  • Subtlekate

    Yoiur bad habits are mine, only I’m OCD about cleaning.
