................ Bluesy Lyrics to:"Bad Habits" by Bruce Marshall...... I drink alot of coffee, champagne, beer, n wineI got a habit of cussin n another one of lyinI like to bet the race-horses, n play the Numbers tooI like to eat to much of that Texas Barbeque......I've got so many bad habits, killin me by degrees.I start out walkin n I wind up fallin down on my knees......Ya know I smoke a little reiffer, n I like to snort cocaineI jolt Taggerin gin, n smoke cigarettes in a chainI got a pretty women habit, ya know those fine legs upset my soulThe only habit I ain't got is: that one called self-control!...I've got so many bad habits, killin me by degrees.I start out walkin n I wind up fallin down on my knees...................................................................Well, I used to have some of those in the tune, way back. I've just spent years correcting many naughty habits, most to do with destructive behavior. I'll no longer drink coffee or soda, smoke, or consciously do anything to another person I don't want done to me. I rarely drink, n haven't been drunk in years. I'm not lazy n exhaust myself working on chores n projects in stead of relaxing. I try to be tolerant n non-judgmental of other people n their beliefs. I could never steal from anyone, or ignore a person that I see can be helped by me. I had to think for a week before I could do a post on this one!
This is a challenge game of tag
, via blogs:the Castle of Nanninburg the Secret Garden...
- I tend to edit instructions to be more clearly stated... I should've been a repair manual editor...
Once I wrote instructions on how to make a PB & J sandwich as an assignment. It was 500 words, n got an "A."...A.)
State your Subject:...* 5 BAD HABITS THAT I NEED TO REVEAL TO THE WORLD *...
- Now, why would I want to tell everyone my bad habits n send 'em cringing hand over open mouth...? Because embarrassment is joyful! Actually, ya don't actually have to list the worst ones, just the ones ya can live with revealing! -OK?...B.)
You're supposed to "tag" five others by name to do the same, at the end of the post.
- I won't because I don't usually pass along chains, but I'll say if ya wanna do one on this subject, take your time, then tell 'em I sent ya! There's no curse warning to follow your "tagged" list (yet)....C.)
Let 'er Rip:...1.)
I waste electricity by sleeping with the TV on a low volume, directly in front of me all night long! No timer used, no silence wanted... The white noise it provides usually keeps my damaged ears from ringing loudly and waking me up! Without TV sound, it takes me hours to fall asleep, n I'll wake up repeatedly because of my ears. I like the sound of quietly speaking voices and soundtracks. I can't sleep to the radio because my brain has to follow the music as though I were learning, or practicing it (I'm a musician)!...2.)
I run the TV and computer simultaneously, n then have both in my attention's background while I go do other things like food prep, mail sorting, gathering needed project supplies, n making notes or lists. Although the TV is on, I seldom look at it, except out of the corner of my eye, and listen. The electronic devices are shut off during the day at the same time, for quiet time. Sometimes everything is off all day long, although since 9/11, I pay daily attention to news n have become a news-junkie.
I take very simple things, n make them very complex with layered information. Nothing is simple here... (in my brain)....3.)
I prefer silence around me when I'm on the phone... (This is the same answer as Ellen's #2).
Before I pick up on the ring, I turn off the TV volume. I hate when I shut off something I really want to see like the weather report on my way out the door (impt: I have to decide if I need the wiper fuse in or not before I start driving), just to pick it up for a telemarketer!
Sometimes I'll forget to turn a show back on because I get sidetracked on projects n miss something I'd waited all night to see. I miss alot of what I'd planned to see because I can't effectively rush people I care about off the phone, n the volume is off while I'm listening to them......4.)
I mentally edit n rewrite almost everything I read. This Tag game I decided was worth the re-write for fun! Peeve:
I hate it when I've just posted a comment n find an uncorrectable typo which changes the intensity n meaning of the text. GRrrrh! I want to correct my errors!FYI:
All the dropped "g" endings, "ya," and "n" characters in my blog-text are totally on purpose! I'm playing a blog-character here...!...5.)
I spend far too much time blog-reading every night when my puter's working. It's far too entertaining to ignore! I really should concentrate more time on projects n writin, n save the blogs for last, so I'll get more work done, (but that's no fun).... ...................~~~~~~~~~~~~..................... Whew! Ellen's right, I figured out a ton more things to add to the list, but five's enough, "Oh well!" All done. I managed to squeeze a few extras in there n that's only the very tippity-top of the frigid iceburg that's still the big secret. I also refer to the weather in almost every post, n if ya haven't guessed, it's freezin in here!
