Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 2:31 pm
Thirteen Things about the Blogging Year of Interstellar Lass. Today is my Blogiversary! One year ago today, Interstellar Adventures was born. Here are Thirteen (or round-abouts) Posts for your reading pleasure.

1. My friends are the most fantastic people I know. We’re all very different, with different pursuits but when we get together, it all fits.

2. I wrote about a memory I have of my pampaw. This is my grandfather that fell over Thanksgiving at my house.

3. When you’re in a funk and have no creativity to post, always go with the jokes. I thought this was quite funny. Fortunately my son didn’t teach me most of these. Only #3 and #15 sound familiar.

4. My first blog nasty pissed me off and so then I went on a bit of a rant. At first, I thought I had to justify my blog, but then I realized, nope, I don’t. It’s for me.

5. Ahhh, the start of marathon training!

6. After my first blogging milestone, I posted 100 things about me.

7. I wrote about my great-grandfather. I miss my great-grandparents.

8. Ah, my Mission Trip Trilogy. Work Hard, Work Harder, and Work Hard with a Vengance.

9. Oh, and then there was the time

10. I accomplished two major milestones in one month. Ran my marathon. Introduced kids to Nick.

11. I wrote about my darling, sweet, kind, thoughtful, loving, romantic, good-looking, funny, caring, darling…OK, I’ll stop now…fiance.

12. We wrapped up the month and the year with a great Christmas.

13. My first bl*gging year was great. I had fun doing it. I hope you all had fun reading it. Come back soon why don’tcha?!?!

The 5 Strange Habits of Interstellar Lass

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 10:38 am

I got tagged by Barry, so here goes:

The first player of this game starts with the topic “five weird habits of yourself,” and people who get tagged need to write an entry about their five weird habits as well as state this rule clearly.

1. I have a ‘thing’ about how my clothes hang in the closet. When placing an item of clothing on the coat hanger, the hanger part should open on the left side. So, if an item is hanging on the right side of the closet, all fronts point towards the back. If an item is hanging on the left side of the closet, all fronts point towards the front. Nick has learned this rule.

2. I eat my foods one at a time. If there is a meat and two vegetables on the plate, I eat the meat first. Then my least favorite of the two veggies and then my favorite veggie. If I have an appetizer with my dinner, my salad or entree better not come until I’m finished with the appetizer. Same if I have a salad. My hot entree better not come out right on top of it. If the food is all mixed up, like a pasta dish, that’s fine. The exception is eggs. I eat the eggs with ham, bacon, or sausage. Bite of egg with bite of sausage.

3. At night, when I check that my front door is locked, I unlock the door and then re-lock it. Sometimes twice. I do this with other things too. Doors, appliances, my car, etc. I’ll also pack something, and I know I packed it, but I’ll double check that it’s there two or three times before I stop checking.

4. I don’t eat the crusts on bread or pizza. Except if it’s the stuffed-crust pizza. Then I’ll eat the crust. I also don’t eat the heel of the bread.

5. When I look at license plates, I always try to make some kind of pattern out of them. Number patterns, words, whatever. And we’re not just talking about vanity plates. I also count when I work out. In my head. Counting patterns. I get so confused by the numbers and patterns that I forget how long I’ve been working out.

These are all the strange things I could think of. I’m sure there are more that I don’t think are weird, but other people I know think are totally bizarre. If you know me, please let me think these are the only weird things about me. I know I’m strange, but let me pretend to be normal, OK?

I won’t tag anyone else with this. I know, party-pooper and all, but if you feel the need to share, go right ahead. Show me I’m not the only weirdo out there.
