Courtney Confessions, October 20th, 2011

Based on the positive response I've received from previous "Courtney Confessions" posts, I decided to start a new, but random and completely unscheduled, segment on my blog (because we all know how much I love to follow through with things like that. *ahem* Things I Love Thursday *ahem*). Courtney Confessions will be posts that do nothing but exploit my own dirty little secrets. I mean, come on, aren't secrets really nothing more than the inconsequential things we like to keep to ourselves so other people don't think we're creepy or demented? Whenever I find out I have something quirky in common with someone else (Oh, you like to count your toilet paper squares, too?), it makes me feel a little less weird about myself and a little more connected to others. I think people are far more bizarre and far more alike than we'd like to let on. But don't worry, I'm not going to go overboard and confess anything heavy-hitting like my uncle is also my grandpa or that I have a third nipple. Rather, it will just be random, idiosyncratic factoids that might encourage you to share your own with me (because it bares repeating—I love receiving comments and emails!). ;)

Let's keep my first batch of confessions tame:

– I measure a morning's success by how thoroughly I can pluck my eyebrows.

– I've dedicated an entire moving box to my Family Guy and South Park action figures (have I also mentioned that I'm 26?).

– I went running in the rain yesterday with two of my friends from work. It was pouring down rain and I was more worried about snot hanging out of my nose than how fast I was moving.

– While hurriedly making dinner one night, I spilled a dollop of spicy mustard on the kitchen floor and completely forgot about it.  3 months later I cannot for the life of me get the stain off the linoleum. It's probably going to be coming out of our deposit.

– During the colder months, I carry tea bags in my purse at all times because you never know when the urge for a cup of hot green tea will strike ... and it strikes surprisingly often.

– Last night Joey opted to lay on Clayton's lap instead of mine, and I got ridiculously jealous. I may have even pouted for a bit.

– When I got to work this morning, I had to google how to tie my scarf around my neck.

– Every time I come home to an empty apartment, I immediately go into the bathroom and check behind the shower curtain to make sure no one is standing in the tub with a hacksaw.

:) (smiley faces make hack saws seem less scary)

Well, kiddos, I am making today's post short and sweet. I have a lot of packing to get to since I'm going to be gone all weekend camping with my family. You can bet your bottom dollar there will be a slew of pictures to be posted next week. However, please keep in mind that I will be moving on Monday and then out of town for my godfather's memorial service on Tuesday. So my next post might take me a bit longer than usual.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! And if you're in Indiana or the surrounding area today, stay dry!


  1. Dude! I check behind my shower curtain too! When I lived alone I checked it every night before I went to bed! I guess we just assume the only place a killer would hide would be a dirty shower ...

  2. I do too! Only I check it for zombies, not killers with hacksaws...
