The lovely and talented Eva over at A Striped Armchair piqued my interest in this one. It sounds like great fun, so without further ado, here it is:
What was I doing 10 years ago?
This was shortly after my divorce was final, so I was still in pretty bad emotional shape. I remember slumping on my empty bed night after night, chain-smoking (I have since quit) and bemoaning my lot in life. Other major life transitions also occurred during this time: I started a new job (which I still have) and I bought a new home in the wannabe wealthy north end of the city. I have since moved back to the poor side of town, and I fit in much better here. My older daughter says it’s because I’m just one step up from trailer trash. I think I agree with her.

Five of My Habits
I must read every night before bed or I feel guilty.
If there is historical or scientific information in a book I’m reading that I’m not very familiar with, I have to research that information after I’m finished.
I like taking baths, and the water has to be so hot it nearly scalds me.
I wear floor-length flannel nightgowns all winter long.
I sometimes bite my nails so far down that they bleed.

Five Fluffy Things About Me
I get teary-eyed often, but I hide it pretty well. I sometimes find myself getting all choked-up when I see elderly people struggling to cross the street. I think of how full of life they must have been when they were young and how sad they must be now that their lives will soon be over. Geez, I’m all verklempt just writing about this!
I’m very generous. That’s fluffy, isn’t it?
My flannel nighties are kind of fluffy.
I love all animals, including girly critters like kittens and butterflies. I love flowers too.
I like little things, like miniature tea sets and tiny little decorative bottles.
I’m not very fluffy, but I’ll give this a shot.
All right, that’s it! Consider youself tagged if:
You have “verklempt” problems.
You enjoy giving gifts more than receiving them.
You think flannel is a totally underrated fabric.
Butterflies and/or kittens are at least a small part of your decor.
You “ooh” and “aah” over itty-bitty things.
