Daily Post: Junk Food Junkie

What’s your biggest junk food weakness? Tell us all about it in its sugary, salty, glory.

*****

The first thing I think of is Larry Groce’s ‘Junk Food Junkie’ released back in ’76.  While I’m still a bit of a snacker, I’m not the junkie I was as a kid.

I think my most favorites are potato chips and pizza.  Now, as some of you know, I went gluten free last year.  If I could get a really, REALLY good pizza, I’d probably be in bad shape.  As it is, pizza is ok, so I don’t eat it as much as I used to.  Chips on the other hand… sigh.  I love just plain ol salty chips. No flavors, just dippers.  Lays classics and Ruffles classic are the best.  Kettle style? Tim’s and Cape Code.  The way they either just melt on the roof of your mouth or the crunch and snap. Its heaven.

Daily Post: The Great Pretender

Krista on March 27, 2014 asks: Are you full of confidence or have you ever suffered from Imposter Syndrome? Tell us all about it.

As some of you know, I work in the apartment complex I live in.  About 50% of the time I spend talking to residents I feel like the great pretender.  I’m not lying to them, but as an employee (as well as a resident) I have to be extra mindful about what I say… and to whom.

I can’t just blow off steam about someone, or gossip, or anything like that.  No, I have to be able to re-assure and help them, even when I want to beat the living crap out of them.

I failed today.  I yelled at a resident who should not be living here as all they have done is cause problem with other residents. Tomorrow will be better.

Daily Post: Those Dishes Won’t Do Themselves (Unfortunately)

michelle w. on February 6, 2014 asks:

What’s the household task you most dislike doing? Why do you think that is — is it the task itself, or something more?

+++++++++

I really hate the laundry as a chore, not the laundry itself.  I live in an apartment and now that I’m on a floor that does not have a laundry room I have to shelp everything upstairs and then back down stairs.

We have a new laundry contract and the new dryers only give you 50 min instead of 60.  You may think 10 min is not that big a deal, but it can make a whole lot of difference to the drying of heavier things like jeans.  I have also discovered that I don’t care to carry my basket.  I need on of those wheeled things… yea thats it 🙂

Style Icon

Michelle w., for the Daily Prompt on January 8, 2014 , asked us to:

Describe your personal style, however you’d like to interpret that — your clothing style, your communication style, your hair style, your eating style, anything.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us STYLE.

Divider Bar

I think for me I would have to say that my personal dress style would a masculine look with a feminine feel. The best example of this I can give is that I love button-ups and I prefer pinstripes and solids. Add to that a string of pearls with matching earrings and a bracelet.

I wear everything from silver to semi-precious stones with blue jeans and t-shirts. In a day and age where fashion trends seem to be whatever you want them to be I am finding that I do not need to sacrifice comfort and functionality to be a lady.

Thats me.

Daily Post: A Source of Anxiety

Write about a noise — or even a silence — that won’t go away. (We’ll let you interpret this in different ways…)

Annual inspections.  Yup that is the one.  A Source of Anxiety!

I live in public housing and as such I am required to have an annual inspection of my home to make sure I am abiding by the rules and regulations.  Ok, I’m cool with that.  However when inspection time comes around, I start to stress and wig and OMG!

What makes this really funny is that I have lived in this building for 13 years at Christmas! 13!  13 annual inspections I have passed. 13 yeas of little changes I have been asked to do and I have done.  13 years and 6 Property Managers with out incident. And the cherry on top?  I took a job working in my complex 3 years ago.  Why does this still nerve me? *shrug*

My current AI is Thursday…. OMG!
