Tagged & Disgust
I was tagged by Leigh â€“ so here goes.
Six weird things about me:
1. I love crunchy peanut butter but I detest nuts in my ice cream or my candy.
2. I had to consult my Best Good Friend on six weird things about me.
3. I must have total darkness and silence when I go to bed.
4. I love to bake cheesecakes but I hate to eat them.
5. Iâ€™m a nonsmoker and wonâ€™t even date a smoker, but six martinis in, Iâ€™m puffing away.
6. I can’t stand for the toilet seat to be open! Drives me nuts.

Now for the Disgust part…
I am, by no means, a germaphobe (Best Good Friend can attest to this). However, there are times where I find myself completely disgusted by how people conduct themselves and live.
Case in point â€“ Monday I moved to the cubicle previously occupied by The Broad. But first, it had to be cleaned up and the supplies there removed to make way for my stuff.
I really feel like I needed a biohazard suit to conduct the cleaning of this cubicle. It was completely filthy and disgusting. I donâ€™t mind cleaning â€“ really â€“ but I despise cleaning after someone else. Especially when that someone else was dirty.
I used Lysol antibacterial wipes to clean the desk and when I got done, the wipes were black. Iâ€™m not kidding. There was hair everywhere. ICK. I was completely grossed out by the entire experience. Even the IT guy said to make sure I wash my hands frequently.
Yeah, no kid.
And since my previous monitor was a total beast, I decided I wanted to use the smaller one that went with her station. Um. Ick. And thatâ€™s all Iâ€™m saying. I cleaned it from top to bottom along with the desk surface of the area. I swear I must have washed my hands a dozen times AND used hand sanitizer â€“ so you know I was thoroughly grossed out if Iâ€™m using hand sanitizer (right, Voodoo?).
I canâ€™t imagine being that…unclean (I can’t think of another word for it). Okay, so granted my area was dusty. But thatâ€™s it! You wonâ€™t find icky crap all over the desk area! (Just a few dust bunnies behind the very large monitor.) And if her cubicle looks like thatâ€¦I shudder to think what her house looks likeâ€¦
Anywayâ€¦ I finally got situated into my new cubicle and I have to say I really like it. Lots more storage space for me and Iâ€™m not in a high traffic area anymore. Itâ€™s greatness.
In other news, handed out my mini bundt cakes and they were an absolute hit. Woo! I didnâ€™t eat any, but I hear they were to-die-for.
I went by Walgreenâ€™s and got some stocking stuffers for the kiddo. I so want him to have a lovely Christmas this year. May I just say I love the Walgreen company? Sometimes you can really find some great treasures there.
In other news, today Iâ€™m going to the Sweetie Boyâ€™s Christmas party at school. And then I get to pick him up on Wednesday and have him through the day after Christmas (with the exception of Christmas Eve where heâ€™ll be with his dad for their Christmas festivities).
Iâ€™m looking forward to spending the time with him. I hope he’s not a horrid child this time around. 😉
My chocolate cheesecake has been baked for the big cook-off at the office. Cross your fingers for me! Iâ€™m hoping I win something. I mean, how can it NOT? Itâ€™s just too sinful of a treat NOT to win. 😉
Happy Tuesday, yaâ€™ll!
