I'm turning into a psycho, weirdo pants!

So....I've been noticing a few weird things about myself.  I've always known I've had some interesting quirks, but now I'm starting to worry myself.  Allow me to elaborate.

1) I'm hearing things.  The other day, I could have sworn I heard Chad's cell phone ringing when I was washing dishes.  Then Chad told me his phone was in the car.  Weird.  The next day I thought I heard the doorbell, I looked really quick, and no one was there.  I didn't hear the doorbell.

2) I'm starting to like really ugly clothes.  I like to go to Goodwill, and St. Vinnies, and plough through their stuff.  Well, yesterday, I was just so in the mood.  Going to these places can be a lot of work, cuz you have to sort through everything 1 by 1 to find the good stuff.  So many times, I would come to clothes I knew were ugly, dated, embarrassingly bad, and I would think, hmmmm, that's kind of pretty.  You're probably thinking the clothes were decent, but NO!  We're talking, funky sweatsuits, winter sweaters COVERED in designs with colors that shouldn't ever be put together, hippie shoes, metallic puffy coats that come to your knees.  Luckily I didn't look at the jewelry cuz who knows what would have caught my attention, probably some dingy snap bracelets!  It was weird, I knew they were ugly, but I liked them cuz they had tons of interesting colors and were really funky, but in a bad way.  I feel like I'm turning into the Olsen twins (not their eating habits ofcourse) but you know how they're dressing lately, they look like bag ladies people!  Honestly, if they just sat down on the curb, they would look like bums, but worse.  IN the end, I didn't buy anything weird, so that's all that really matters right?    

3) I'm talking to myself.  Yes, as embarrassing as it is, I have caught myself talking to myself......WHEN I'M IN PUBLIC!  Luckily it's nothing too shameful, and it's usually when I'm shopping....and I'll say, ewww, that looks disgusting, oh, that's so cute, or I have wanted to try that cereal hmmmmm or I'll talk about the people around me, don't i know her from somewhere? what a cute jacket.  Anyway, these things will come out of my mouth, and then I'll kinda giggle to myself because I realize what a weirdo I am becoming.  It might be okay if I shopped with people, but I usually shop alone.   Oh dear.  I just know someone has caught me and started to roll over  

Anyway, those are the majors.  At this point, I think it's really just funny, but I'm slightly concerned that I might come to a point where I won't think those things are even weird, and that would make me a total loony!  Beware of the NARGLES!

I have some of the same issues too. I wear D.I. clothes that are pretty hidious but mostly because that's what I fit in to. Also because I spend clothing money on my kids so they look cute. I also talk to myself in public. I find myself asking my imaginary friend "do you like that?" My favorite is when I'm at the checkout and they say "have a nice day" and I say "We will" I think this comes from having my children shopping with me when they were little. I really have no excuse. They have all been in school for 2 years. Do I have a mouse in my pocket or a split personality? Get help fast! You do not want to be like me. LOL

Haha, Jessica sounds like you need a baby! Then you can chat away to them and no one seems to mind. "So, baby, what kind of cereal should we choose..?" It just looks better then chatting with yourself! (although entertaining for passer-byers) And I think it's normal to hear things that aren't really there. I ALWAYS think I hear Olivia crying when she's napping, but she's not. I don't know what to say about the clothes except that you live in Eugene... That could explain a lot of it.

hahahahaha! jessica don't even worry- you're no Luna Lovegood, but even if you were, that'd be rad because I LOVE HER!!! but you sure are funny that's for sure. I wish I could be one of those people who overheard you talking to yourself in the stoor. I personally think it's awesome!!!

You're so funny. I had to laugh about the cell phone because I'm not quite sure if it's as bad as me having my phone in my pocket and taking it out several times because I think it is vibrating. It never do I feel vibrations when there aren't any??!! Hahha...I think we all have little quirks like that, that are kind of embarrassing. Like Jenni said, Luna is way cool, so are you;)

OH MY GOSH! I have NEVER laughed so hard at anyone's blog post EVER. I was laughing my head off the whole time, then I went to the bathroom, was laughing in there, washing my hands, still laughing- I just couldn't quit thinking about you doing and thinking and saying all these things. I love it! OK- so Jessica- I wish you lived closer to me, because I can tell we both like the same things- we both like to decorate, make things, sew, and go thrift store shopping. OK- Jessica. So I totally knwo what you mean by thinking old stuff that is out of fashion is pretty! Jessica! I go to value Village on 99 cent Tuesdays and I am always hoping nobody will run into me because my cart is full of ugly things! Becaues you know how when you run into someone your like "so what are you getting?" and you kinda roam through their cart- that happened with Sis. Luke- and I was so embarrassed to show her what I liked! I have picked out so many OLD skirts- that I think are back in fashion, but some ...aren't... like- elastic waiste, or like silky fabrics that are long and full, like if you were to twirl around it would get bigger- get what i mean? or dresses yikes! Jessica....right now I'm sewing a jumper! My sister was like what?! a jumper?! but it's cute I promise. Jessica- I totally do the same thing- some of it is stuff I think has come BACK into fashion- but some of it.....isn't. I think going shopping with you woudl be so fun and hilarious- sbecause i know we would pick out all this stuff and think it's ugly- but really think it's pretty too and want it. what is happening? I'm laughing right now. I have NEVER laughed this much over someone's blog. I love you. That was so funny what you said about the jewelry. metallic. hahhaahaa. If it weren't so late, I woudl call you right now just so I coudl laugh with you. OK now the hearing things. I think that's really normal- and the talking to myself- oh my gosh I've been doing that my whole life. - that is really funny what sarah said about having a baby- because then you could totally talk all you want- hahaha. One thing that is embarrassing....- hahah- well- I always have thought it's annoying when random people talk to me, I always think "get a life," or "I don't care..." and lately- I've kind of been like that- like I'll start talking to people in stores etc. But I really don't want to be that annoying stranger. I love you so much. I wish we were just homemakers and neighbors adn we coudl play every day. I love you.

That's really funny Jess! I was totally picturing the Olson all their nastiness, wearing those clothes you described. I mean, I still love them, but they dress really bad.

And it's okay to talk to yourself...everyone does once in awhile!
