some randomness for your wednesday.

It feels like the right time to tell you some random things about me and my life. Nothing earth shattering but me none the less.
I have an addiction to using '!' when typing.

I constantly have to re-read what I'm typing/writing to make sure I haven't placed any rouge exclamation points in there. I will literally put one after each sentence. After I've completed my blog post or email - I'll take at least half the '!' away. On the flip side, if I'm feeling angry, frustrated, or something inbetween - I'll under use it. You know what I'm talking about. You read 'Thanks!' different than 'Thanks.'
I'm a great speller, except for the word comercial.
Or is it commerrcial. Wait, maybe commercial.
Okay, I just googled it. That last one is correct.
I have an asthmatic cat.
That's right. My sweet Gussie is a special needs cat. Here's a glimpse of what we go through one to two times per day. (not me & Gus in the video but you get the idea....) 

It took him a few months to get used to it but now it's just a regular part of our day. It is hard to leave him and have my family and friends responsible for the inhaler. Luckily Gus trusts both Guy and my mom so I have some solid back up for when I'm out of town.
I have to have cheese everyday.

It's a full on addiction. I go through withdrawl without a substantial amount each day. I've never met a cheese I don't like. If there's a cheese plate appetizer on the menu - we're getting it. I go to Mexican restaurants just for the queso dip. I go through withdrawl on business trips if I don't get my fix. It can get ugly.
I blame growing up in Wisconsin for my addiction.
People and their animals wear cheeseheads for heavens sake. If that doesn't speak volumes, I don't know what does. {that picture was just for you Ms. Mayra!}

So there you have it; some random facts about me.
More to come another day!

Hahaha, blame Wisconsin, too funny :-D

I use "!" way too much also... I read somewhere that Mark Twain said that using an exclamation is like laughing at your own joke. I agree with his statement, but it makes me sad to NOT use them-- you're right, "Thanks." is SO much different than "Thanks!"

Hope you have a great day! (exclamation needed ;-))

I too have an exclamation point problem and I also tend to over use CAPS for extra emphasis.

My spelling obstacle is "guaruntee" and I garuntee you that I'm spelling it wrong now =)

Oh and Gus isn't special needs! He's a little fuzzy angel!! xo

Love this... I over use elipses (see my first comment here followed by ...). LOVE THEM. Use them all the time. I tried to edit them out of things for a while and then I just gave up.
And yeah... Wisconsin will do that to you. We love our cheese!!

Kimbirdy said...

MMM... Cheese...

When my kitty got sick I had to give her dialysis twice a day. It was rough! But she was a great sport. Does your kitty do as well as that cat in the video? I think mine would freak out with something on her face.

Holly said...

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

I love cheese too! My life is not complete without it!

I'm a big cheese fan - but I've heard there's some cheese in Germany or something with live worms in it. I don't think I'll be trying that one.
