Another Monday has rolled around , Mr 4 had his customary Monday Morning ‘headache’ otherwise known as Mondayitis, I have another horrid Man Cold since all the males I live with can’t seem to treat their germs the same as the TV remote and NOT SHARE, and it’s time for another round of confessing. This week is all about channelling our inner Billy Fields and confessing all our bad habits. Anyone under 40 and/or not Australian is probably thinking Billy Who?
This dude, and this song.
Like Billy, I’m afraid I have far too many shockingly bad habits.
I seem to be a ‘glass half empty’ kind of girl. I don’t know if this is related to being Aspie or just to being me. Micky Blue Eyes mentions his fervent desire to just take off to Darwin or just about anywhere, in fact and my train of thought goes something like “Oh shit, plane travel with 3 kids. NIGHTMARE. Scorching heat. NIGHTMARE. NO WAY. FUCK THAT.” Versus: "Awesome. A chance to travel in Australia and spend time with my family."
I seem to live by the motto: Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow? This seems to worked out well considering that I’m now 42 years old and still have no idea what I want to do when I grow up.
I have the extremely helpful gift of constantly comparing myself with others and finding myself lacking. This is not supremely useful in life. I don’t recommend it.
This is one trait where I’m totally going to use my Ass Burgers as an excuse. Because apparently we can be impaired in something called 'Executive Function' which, according to Prof Tony Atwood's Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome, is a psychological term which includes:
- organisational and planning abilities
- working memory
- inhibition and impulse control
- self-reflection and self-monitoring
- time management and prioritising
- understanding complex or abstract concepts
- using new strategies
Also according to Wikipedia, I can also use it as an excuse for my inability to resist cake! See, I knew it wasn't my fault! Which brings me to my next bad habit...
Over EatingI eat a lot of cake. And chocolate. And bread. And…EVERYTHING.
I eat more than usual of all of the above when I’m sad or stressed.
Then I just eat some more just for the sake of it.
Did I mention, eating?
Yep, you guessed it, more eating.
I would be completely and utterly shocked and appalled at my own monumental and breathtaking laziness except that I CAN’T BE BOTHERED. What I can be bothered doing, though is...
EATING! You know, just for something completely different. Then I get depressed that I’m fat, so I eat some more and get more depressed and more fat and so on…and basically one way or the other I just need to shut my mouth. Either shut it it and stop eating quite so much or shut it and stop whinging that I’m fat. Genius.Quite a few of these habits fall into the area of ‘blogging’ habits as well as personal. I’m a disorganised, lazy blogger who flies by the seat of my pants and pulls any ridiculous, tedious rubbish out of my arse at the last minute, just like this crap. You’re welcome.
Linking up with Kirsty from My Home Truths for I Must Confess.
What are your bad habits?
