I actually tried googling "Why do I attract crazy people?"

Yep, nothing helpful.

Annoying. Amusing. A little creepy. But definitely NOT helpful.

I'm seriously open to suggestions here.

WHY do crazy people flock to me like magnets?

We aren't talking a little weird, or quirky, or strange.

I'm talking like 2 seconds away from a psychiatric hospital kind of crazy.

And it's not just guys I date. It's bosses, acquaintances, random people who feel the need to become strangely obsessed with me and then subsequently go nuts.


My lifetime friends can confirm that this has been happening since I was about 14, so this is definitely a repeating pattern. And one I seriously need to break.

So I'm asking, sincerely, what is it about me that attracts this kind of crazy?

Aside from locking myself in a padded cell, I'm going to continue to have these problems.

So it needs to be fixed. Soon.

Wee Bit Wednesday

{one} what was one thing that you valued when you were a kid?
Well, what I did value and what I should have valued were pretty different. But I did value my friendships. I made some amazing friends when I was pretty young, and I still am honored to call these girls my friends.

{two} what was your favorite (+ lease favorite) subject in school?

I LOVE Math. Probably the reason I am now an Accountant. I HATE English. There is nothing I hate more than writing essays on topics I could not possibly care less about, or deciphering what is a pronoun and an adjective and whatever else in a sentence. YUCK!

{three} do you remember your first love?

Of course. I wrote an entire blog about him write here.

{four} what one pet would you love to have?
Horses. I <3 horses. But I don't want to do the work they would require.

{five} would you rather live in the country or in the city?

I'm what you'd call a "Sophisticated Country Girl". I love the outdoors, big trucks, 4-Wheeling, and camping, but I'm also all about nice restaurants, good shopping, and fun nightclubs. So I guess I need both.
Good thing I live in Texas, where both are readily available!

{six} what do you love about blogging?
Expressing myself and exactly how I feel without having to censor myself. Mostly.

{seven} what is the first website you visit everyday?

{eight} will you or have you joined google+?

I keep hearing about Google+. I have a bunch of friends that joined. But I'm just not ready to create ANOTHER profile and go through all the adding of friends and all that nonsense. So I shall stick with Facebook until it dies a Myspace-type death.

{nine} what is your favorite scent of candle/air freshener?
I love Vanilla, Sugar Cookies, and Chocolate Chip Cookie. Yummy!

{ten} how would you describe your style?
As A.D.D. as I am. Sometimes it's classy and sophisticated, sometimes it's a little classic rock, sometimes all out country girl. It totally depends on my mood and what's clean :)

Monday Morning Music

I'm stealing this from my partner in crime, my X-Files and Dawson's Creek buddy, the greatest advice giver I've ever known, and my best friend until the end of time - Kym.

I mean, if she's doing it, it has to be a good idea, right? :)

So I love this song. For many, many reasons. Mostly because it just.makes.sense. It's so true for so many of us, if in different ways.

My two favorite lines are

"One is one too many. One more is never enough."


"It's always your favorite sins, that do you in."

I haven't been a huge fan of Kenny Chesney in recent years, but this is fabulous. Hope you love it as much as I do!
