6 Things I'm Really Picky About

let's be honest.  i could have made a list a lot longer than 6.  but then i'd look really nuts...

i only eat the yellow and orange starburst.  apparently this makes me insane.  but anything even remotely resembling cherry makes me barf instantly and the pink ones are so sweet that i gag after 2.

unless it's the jeremiah weed alcoholic kind, i won't drink sweet tea.  sorry southern ladies.  i like my tea iced and completely unsweetened.  and no lemon.

i have to have the plus lotion tissues.  i cannot use regular ones any more, my nose has decided it's much too good for the lower class tissues.  honestly if i use one tissue that isn't the plus lotion kind, my nose turns bright red.

it's gotten to the point where i should just superglue my shoelaces.  my shoes have to be tied perfectly.  perfectly.  i hate when one comes untied (which is rare, since i knot the crap out of them once i get them correct) and i have to re-tie it, it's never quite right.  too tight, too loose, doesn't feel the same as the other foot.  it takes me forever to re-tie it just right and yes, i will make you wait while i attempt it.

the bed must be made in the morning.  i never used to care about this, and in fact drove my mother nuts with never doing it.  but now it's my newest ocd trait.  i cannot leave the house til the bed is made.  it takes 2 seconds (i don't need to put all the pillows on it or have the sheets be perfect) and it makes the room look so much better.

only white paper towels are allowed on my counter.  i cannot buy printed paper towels, they look messy and never match anything.


it's ok though, i'm not crazy.  i just like to control things.  because my way is the right way.



what are you super picky about?

  1. I will eat all Starburst, but I'm the exact opposite of you. I much prefer the red and the pink. Yellow next. Orange are the worst. Ha!

    My tea has to be sweet.

    We do agree on white paper towels. The rest are just ugly.

  2. Send me all of your red and pink starbursts and I'll send you my orange and yellow, okay? :)

    Also - I'm totally with you on the sweet tea thing. Blech!

  3. Ha! I hate the yellow starburst! I hear you on making the bed. Totally necessary. I need to match tissue boxes to my bathroom. Paper towels don't bug me, but damn it the tissue box must coordinate.

  5. I can't stand printed paper towels, either! I can do printed napkins but go through every design and make sure I pick the right one. My biggest nitpicky quirk is that the towels have to be folded perfectly in thirds so they fit on the shelf, they all have to be facing the exact same direction. Meanwhile, I hate making the bed and have clothes all over the bedroom. I really need to get into the bed-making habit!

  6. I love the taste of regular, unsweetened iced tea. How anyone can drink sweet tea is beyond me. Cherry starburst are the only ones I do eat!

  15. I don't like eating the popcorn or the snacks/candy until the movie starts. Not the previews. the movie. There are rules people (even if I made them up)

  16. I have to make my bed in the morning, it just feels wrong leaving the house without making it.

    if it is too cold I will not shower and have a bath instead...

  17. i used to separate all the sweet tarts in college.
    the container containing all purple and orange for me and the rest of the crap ones for whoever wanted them.

    and also - hawkeye is pretty nice for providing you with a turn down service. she's like the best maid you never asked for/don't pay.

  18. I must eat all of the pink starbursts. If someone eats my pink starbursts they will be ostracized.

    I ain't playing.

    I don't even buy paper towels. No... not because of the environment, but it makes us go through our toilet paper quicker because we always think "hey.. if we run out.. we got paper towels!!!" fuck that.

    My tea HAS TO BE SWEET and on the occasion I will have a lemon.

    My bed is NEVER made.

    Boom.

  19. OMG. I am the SAME way about the shoes. I thought I was the only one with that kind of OCD. Everything always has to feel even. I hate when one shoe is tighter than the other.

  20. i'm trying to start making my bed every single day - everything just feels so much more put together when it is! i'm 2 for 2 so far this week!

    i agree - only white paper towels. i hate the patterned ones.

    and we could share a package of starbursts - i don't eat the yellow and orange, only pink and red for me!

  21. HOLY CRAP I felt like you were writting about me! I have found my clone... lol...

    I won't eat ANYTHING cherry... I swear its b/c my mom OD'd me on liquid tylonal as a child...

    the bed... ummm that was the first thing my husband and I got into an arguement about b/c he leaves for work after me (un-happy camper to come home to an un-made bed Mr!!) (he learned that with a quickness).

    I love getting your emails everyday! xoxo~ Lauren

    1. Haha I'm so glad you agree!! I hate cherry for the same reason, it always tastes like children's medicine. Yuck.

      My boyfriend picked up on the bed making within 2 times of staying over. It just has to be done!

      Thanks for subscribing to my e-mails Lauren!!

  23. omg I LOVE sweet tea. NO LEMON though. Yuck!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yellow and orange are the Starbursts I refuse to eat! We could share a pack and be the happiest girls ever!

    I cannot handle sweet tea. It tastes like straight up sugar... unsweetened w/ lemon for me.

    And I make my bed everyday. My whole vibe is off if I don't.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I drink unsweetened iced tea (NO LEMON, ever) every day!

    Also, I only use the kleenex plus lotion tissues too!
    And white paper towels all the way - haha.

  26. I am with you on the made bed. I hate to get into an unmade bed at the end of the day. Even worse is an unmade bed that your dog rolled around in while you were gone! I keep the bedroom door shut for that reason.

  27. OMG- I am so OCD about making the bed every morning & my husband thinks I'm insane! Like if I'm running late, I'll still stop & make the bed.
    I am super crazy about other things too, like the tp facing down, over the top, or closing the shower curtain when you're done with a shower.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Haha... insane? Pssssshhhhttt. But I'm not so sure I'm the one to ask!

    Love Hawkeye's turn down service!

  29. My list is waaaay more than six as well.
    1. I have to have my t-shirts hung in ROYGBIV order
    2. My lists have to have numbers
    3. If I'm taking notes and skrew up a bullet, I tear the whole page out and re-copy my notes onto a new sheet, with the bullet fixed
    4. I always have to hit the "task killer" app twice right before I hit screen lock on my phone, not once, but double-tap-it-style twice
    5. When I get home, even if I don't have to go, I go to the bathroom
    6. I can't cut up just half a veggie, if I start cutting it up, it all has to get cut up
    7. I always put my pearl ring in the same spot, on top of a display next to my willow tree angels
    ..... Ok so I have a sheep-ton more OCD issues, but for the sake of seeing you have 29 comments, I'm not gonna keep you reading. You've gotta check out everyone else's goodies! ;)

  32. the toilet paper has to roll from the top. anywhere i go, if it's coming from the underside, i will fix it... friend's house, public bathroom, hotel doesn't matter... it MUST come from the top.

  35. Insane or my new best friend. I only like the red & pink starbursts so that works out perfectly. If people don't realize that, they are stupid.

  36. I am super picky about...EVERYTHING. Mostly everything. Like the type of pens I will write with, for starters. Okay that was the first thing I saw on my desk.

    OH. I have to drink water with a straw and ice. There is no other way.

  37. Sweet tea grosses me out. But I love lemon in everything. Mmm.

  38. I am the same way about laces needing to be the same tightness as each other. I HAVE to lotion my hands after I wash them. I hate the feeling of dry hands.
