A Few Random Truths

Lat night I learned a very valuable truth. I had my suspicions before, but last night they were confirmed. I learned the power of red lipstick. The husband cannot say no to me when I am wearing my red lipstick. I don't know why, I don't question why. I enjoy it, and bask in the glory of the knowledge thereof. Red is the color of power. (Pictures are coming!)
Last night I revisited my childhood fears. When I was a very little girl I was terrified of wolves. I was terrified of getting out of bed during the night because I thought that wolves were hiding under my bed. I would jump to the middle of my room. I would then run to my door and stand there for what seemed like hours looking up and down the hall, knowing that the second I stepped into the hall, they would charge me. It was quite a terrifying experience. I didn't even like to sleep with any of my limbs hanging over the edge of the bed, because they could just reach up and chomp on whatever extremity was hanging overboard. Last night my arm was hanging off the bed, and I got that fear again. I know it was silly, and I laughed, but I did pull my arm over the edge of the bed and into the covers. What silly childhood nightmare haunts you even now?
Also, I learned a universal truth. I learned that vinegar (especially balsamic) smells like dirty stinky feet. I now know why I have hated vinegar my whole life. I don't like eating stinky feet! For dinner last night the recipe called for a little balsamic vinegar, and my bottle dumped a whole lot more than I ever would have added in this or any other universe. My whole house smelled like stinky feet. And we had to eat it! Well, at least it didn't taste as bad as that.
So, I have shared with you some random truths about myself, please share some randomness about yourself with me!
Oh yeah, I am super pleased with myself, because I figured out how to make a button for my blog. Grab it and plop it onto your blog. Share the love! It would make me feel really good.

You're right about the red lipstick! I can *do wonders!*

Good job on the button! If you want to create a text area underneath so other people can grab the HTML code, send me an e-mail and I'll tell you how (it takes 2 seconds -- super easy!). I tried leaving the code here, but it won't let me. Lame.

Anyways! What a fun blog you have!

p.s. also, here's another really fun blog. Have you been on it? Ask Anything if you want to add it's button to your blog, that would be great. I'm trying to create a little more traffic (3000 hits a day isn't enough ;)

Thanks for the offer Shannon. I do have the text for the button, it just didn't load last night like I thought it had. I hopefully fixed it now. You are all so great! Grab a button!

What's the button thing? I'm lost on that one. When I was little I was terrified of fires. If I dragged my sleeping bag across the room I would have to go get a damp towel and rub it on the carpet just in case!

If you look to the right column of my blog there is a html code. If you copy and paste it as a gadget on your blog, you will have a little birdy (like in my header) that shows you LOVE me and you SUPPORT me. :)
Do it. Every one else is. I dare you. :)

I've all ready told ever one about my basement monster fear... Wich I still have. But I was always scared of rober coming in and killing the entire family but me... My dad wacthed alot of crime shows.. So when I hear a srtange sound in the middle of the night I would stay awake for hours just listening contenly so I could be a good witness and scream when apropiate... silly huh... I still hear strange noises and think someone is in my house but I only stay up for a few min listening to see what it really is and If I can't figure it out I wake Johnny up and the noise goes away...

I was always afraid of the gunman in the food storage room in our basement. Whenever I got called to come upstairs, I would run up the stairs as fast as I could in order to avoid getting shot at. It's totally ridiculous, I know now. So are you really going to do as many pushups as comments people leave you?

I was seriously afraid that Darth Vader was coming to get me. He was walking up the street and was going to climb into my room to kill me. I think Star Wars was too much for me. I think it may still be too much for me.
