this is what happens when i open a pack of m&ms:

it's very sad, i am sure i have wasted a significant amount of my life on being anal. :)

i had a pretty good weekend. i have had to wrestle with myself about the value of the vast amount of time i spent, quite simply, loafing, but all in all i think loafing was the right choice, if it even was a choice. now i DID visit jack's fam saturday and then sunday help judithiscariot with some stuff and walked around the container store, the bed bath & beyond, AND the target for good measure because we kept not finding the right stuff. tonight, inspired (and unhappy with all the expensive and ugly magazine holders) i went to ikea and took it easy and procured some things. monday night is the night to go, to be sure. i am teetering on the brink of replacing my cd shelves.

friday night jack and i watched what's eating gilbert grape and i really liked it, and not just because of mr. depp.

my head has been killing me all day and i don't know why, i drank a whole liter of water, it's not dehydration. also my elbow and the left part of my hand has been tingly and numb and it feels like my funny bone is unsually unprotected or sensitive. the measure of my mood day to day is strongly related to how much stuff i know is on my plate for work the next day that i feel confident i know how to do. very work focused right now which let me tell you, is highly unusual. i keep thinking "when this calms down" but i should know better. it will never calm down, until i leave.

i have been sad as well as glad to read all the words that people have been posting and linking about andrea dworkin's passing. it is an education and a testament to her contributions to the feminist movement and our culture at large. i have alot to learn.

I think you are the first person I've met that separates their M&M's by color :)
I'm anal about the labels of all containers facing forwards at all times. If chris leaves the shampoo or conditioner
with the label facing the back, i'm not happy/comfortable until I turn it around. I've tried not to do the same thing
with all the soup/tuna fish/etc in the pantry, but it's just such a hard habit to break. I should care about more
important things than if my Aosept and saline bottles have the labels facing me.

Yay! I separate my M&Ms (or reeses pieces or skittles or what have you) by color also. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I always eat from the color group with the largest amount first until all the color groups have an equal number. Then I eat one from each color group in a certain order until they are gone. I think they taste better that way. :)

Why so few red M&Ms? What is afoot? Are they still sensitive about the carcinogen red die #5 from way back in the day? Or did you eat them up while sorting them?

i didn't eat them!!! there really were only 2 red ones in the whole bag. i know, it's very suspicious.

Yeah, I do it too. And then once they're all lined up by color, they get sorted into groups containing one of each color, best to worst. I eat the deformed popular ones first. The egalitarian, integrated best-of-breed M&Ms survive the longest. And I get stupidly irritated if someone comes along and eats a random M&M, messing up my system.

Good thing I'm diabetic. I'd never get anything else done if I could still have M&Ms. [grin]

I love you. I can't eat M&Ms in the car, because I can't sort them out first.

What's Eating Gilbert Grape = proof that Leonardo DiCaprio really can act, and that he's best when he's not being pretty.

i was definitely blown away by his performance in this film.

I did a whole post on how I eat M&Ms a while back. I should have thought to take pictures! Brilliant!

:D Hey there!!!

I am GREAT if a bit frazzled from all the greatness. Spring has sprung and I am crawling out of my hole and seeing the light, and am cleaning out closets and dusting things off...

I hope you and yours are well!!
