I feel really guilty if I walk out with an odd number.

big issue over here and it does mean that I spend more than I have sometimes

something else: I'm attached to the number 8,

so if possible, I try to get things in 8

(but also 2's). 1 pack of 8 won't do

shopping is a nightmare
OMG! I had no idea anyone else had this thing, too. Thank you for this, because I felt like a freak! And yes, shopping and driving (counting streets and turns and looking at addresses) is great fun. Living on the third floor is a nightmare for me.

A: So crazy that you mention that because my last google search was 'weighted blankets.' I want to get one, as sleep is a nightmare for me. They are kinda expensive, though.

Q: What is the best pasta dish you have ever eaten in your whole life?

I had never heard of them until Bluebicycle mentioned them in another thread. I need to look into one. I keep imagining them to be like the 'thunder jackets' for dogs who fear storms

none.

I really don't like pasta

in fact: I remember quite vividly my school serving up some pasta, and me just looking at it going...... yuck, no

I don't like it

question: do you like something on while you are getting to sleep? (tv, audiobook, relaxing sounds) or do you like it to be quiet

I never like any kind of talking, TV or music, but I do enjoy nature sounds (summer insects, birds, wind, rainfall, fireplace). I have a sound machine and did use it a lot in the past. I really like it and find it to be quite helpful. I just haven't needed it so much for a while.

Q: What time in the morning is the ideal time for you to get up?

A: Given my current workout schedule of starting my ride at 0430 (the reason is to avoid traffic), 0330 would probably be about right. It's usually much earlier, though.

Q: If you were going out for a casual walk and you didn't care what you looked like, what shoes would you wear?

Flip flops. I pretty much live in my flip flops. If it was winter I'd wear my Crocs tennis shoes. They are very comfy. I'd only wear my workout shoes if I was planning to jog or do a lot of hills.

What time do you go to bed each night?

A. Tortoise. My life and home don't really support owning one, but I like a tortoise.

Q. What was the last lie you told?
