13 things I'm embarrassed by...

  1. The top of my refrigerator looks like this:
  2. I have assigned a DSM-IV diagnosis to every character in the Koala Brothers.
  3. My daughter knows all the words to Cowboy in the Continental Suit and asks to have it sung at bedtime.
  4. I do not know the words to Cowboy in the Continental Suit and must pass the job of singing it off to my husband. (Or perhaps I'm proud of that one - no offense, Marty Robbins.)
  5. I have a robot vacuum cleaner and yet my floor still looks like a group of merchant marines just marched through my living room.
  6. I have a bachelors degree and have spent the last 15 years of my life studying human behavior and physiology, yet what I did at work today amounts to filing, putting stamps on envelopes and teaching someone how to copy a file by dragging it from one folder to another in Windows.
  7. I own a Barry Manilow CD... I tell people that I had to purchase it for working with client, but I'm lying.
  8. Despite having recorded and watched every episode of Project Runway for the first three seasons, I still feel it necessary to stop and sit through those Project Runway four- six- eight- hour marathons each time I flip across the Bravo channel and see one.
  9. When I was in college I worked as a waitress; not just a waitress, but a singing waitress.
  10. I just purchased a 7-year-old Subaru Forrester. I hate SUVs and claim it's a station wagon, but Subaru calls it an SUV. I just hope people will not go to the Subaru website to check up on me.
  11. My husband keeps trying to out me as a blogger to friends and people at church. I do not want friends and people at church to know where my weblog is so I can talk about them in my blog without feeling guilty.
  12. I have a 4,000 pound paperweight in the form of an S-10 pickup sitting outside my house, mocking me every time I walk by. This is the first in four vehicles that hasn't been put out of commission by a wreck and therefore was not taken away by an insurance company leaving us with a settlement check in it's place. Therefore, we cannot decide how to get rid of it.
  13. Somehow, I set my VCR to record and playback narration for the visually impaired. I cannot figure out how to turn it off, so I've simply started watching movies without looking at the screen.
