They're gonna recognize my eyes, my hair, my teeth, my boobs, my nose

When I blogged about how I'd always wanted to Become A Regular Somewhere I completely forgot that my family are already regulars for Sunday brunch at the Sheraton in Ann Arbor. I probably forgot it because I am always trying to forget it. It would be nice if it were because we go there frequently, but it's because we've become recognizable. A few years ago, I was to meet my family at the Sheraton for brunch. They arrived before I did and the host was amused to watch as they danced around the table, trying to decide where they should...

Cup cup cup cup of of of of...

Dear The Tea Industry, I really don't like drinking my tea with the tea bag still in it. I thought it was just that I don't like my teabag and milk to touch, but now that I have been forced (by Science!) to branch out and find a tea that I can enjoy without milk or sugar, it turns out that my craziness extends to drinking the tea while the tea bag is still in it. Restaurants and cafés never provide them, so what you should do, The Tea Industry, is to market a line of tea bags that come...

Never the twain shall meet! If I can help it!

Guess what? I have insane compulsions. I bet you were in no way aware of this. I, myself, am sometimes unaware of my own compulsions until they are pointed out to me. Apparently it is strange to threaten someone with bodily harm when they try to add the milk to your tea before removing the teabag, without being able to explain exactly what it is that you find so distasteful about the two touching. It's just wrong! It just is! Who would do such a thing? GAH!...

Oh what a tangled web we weave when we something something on Christmas Eve...

I have a haircutting appointment on Tuesday. I'm going back to Robin's hair-cutting lady. I will look good and feel guilty for abandoning mine. Either that or she will have gone insane in my absence and I will feel guilty and look like crap. Why can't I get just a haircut and not have big dramatic issues about it, as I assume normal people do? Well, if I weren't insane and neurotic and overdramatic, then I wouldn't have anything to blog about, now would I?...

Lies and intrigue in the salons

Robin has been trying to convince me for years to go to her hair-cutting lady, but I felt guilty cheating on my own. Finally, when I returned from France, I did it - thinking that it would appease Robin and I could just go to my normal hair-cutting lady the next time. Except Robin's hair-cutting lady gave me a really nice haircut. Tonight I am skulking guiltily back to the normal one, and I'm going to try to get her to cut it the same, but now I'm feeling guilty about cheating on Robin's hair-cutting lady by taking this great...

Neuroses

I have a lot of strange neuroses and phobias and things I can't really explain. In restaurants, I prefer to sit with my back to the wall, facing the entrance. I don't know if it's some kind of Mafiaesque fear that someone's going to come shooting up the place or stab me in the back... but I prefer to be where I can see everyone in the room and no one can sneak up on me. I have my family trained to let me pick my seat first or to be willing to move if I make them. Apparently Alex...
