Okay, so the actual title of this week’s theme is “Things I Do that People Think Are Weird”, but that would make for an awfully long blog title. So, I adjusted. And I could pretty much sum this list up into one thing, but that would be kind of boring.
- Everything – Like I said, I could sum it up in one thing.
- Fold Wrappers – Or at least my husband finds this odd. When we go out for fast food, I always fold my sandwich wrapper when I’m done eating. He just crumples his up. It’s not like I feel I have to fold it. it’s just what I do.
- Think Out Loud – ok, so most people call this talking to myself. And, yeah, I get strange looks when I do it. Especially if I happen to be “thinking out loud” about one of my stories. Maybe a good thing I don’t go out in public often.
And one I forgot to add to my list
- No hugs – I really don’t like being touched with a few exceptions. I really don’t like hugs. I can handle the one-armed side hug, but unless I know you really well(and sometimes even then), I’m very uncomfortable with anything more.
There’s probably more that people haven’t actually *told* me they find weird. It certainly wouldn’t surprise me.
I’m kind of cheating this week. Well, maybe not quite cheating, but I have two lists in one. Since I have a pile of physical books and a whole list of ebooks on my kindle. So, I did the top 3 from each of these.
- Taking the Heat by Victoria Dahl – I’ve enjoyed the other books in this series and am really looking forward to getting to this one.
- Wild Man by Kristen Ashley – it’s been a while since I read the first book in this series ;and remember having issues with it, but I started reading another series of hers that has the characters from these ones showing up in it, so I figured I’d pick it back up.
- Landline by Rainbow Rowell – I loved both Eleanor & Park and Fangirl(as well as Carry On), so I’m hoping this one is good too.
- Shoulda Been a Cowboy – I’ve only read the first book in this series, but I believe this is a prequel novella(though I could be wrong about that. It’s been known to happen). But, cowboys? Yes, please.
- Heat Exchange by Shannon Stacey – Firefighters? Yes, please. That’s…really all I have to say. Firefighters are one of my weaknesses(could be why I married one)
- I See London by Chanel Cleeton – I’ve had this one on my list for a while. Finally getting to it.
Getting to today’s post a little later than planned. Just got back from taking both kids to the doctor for strep throat. Oh goody. Of course, we made it through the whole winter with barely more than a cold. It’s May now, and they both get strep. Pretty sure, I didn’t put that on any list of mine.
Anyway…this week’s theme is Songs I Never Get Tired Of. I probably could have made a much longer list, but these were the first that came to mind. And, yes, I’m a total country girl. Not going to apologize for it, either(and I do listen to other stuff, but like I said, these were the first that came to mind).
- Adalida by George Strait – There’s a story behind why this makes the list. 10+ years ago this was my username on yahoo messenger(actually I think it was adalida17 or something like that). That was also around the same time I met my husband online. Obviously, I knew I had a catch when he knew the reference without me having to explain. 😉 And, yeah, he also teased me about having a crush on a singer who was old enough to be my dad.
- I Cross My Heart by George Strait – Noticing a trend here? 😉 I’d always said I wanted this to be my 1st dance song at my wedding. And it was. The one song I can always get my husband to dance to.
- Would You Go With Me by Josh Turner – This is another one from our wedding. My husband’s uncle learned the words and music and played it during the ceremony.
- Die a Happy Man by Thomas Rhett – This is a newer one. But, it makes the list because it’s basically the underlying theme of every story I write(though in the case of Love Who You Love there was no man).
What books would you like to spend time in?
