Ten Ways I Break The Rules

I know, I know.  This post is sooooooo yesterday.  But here’s the thing.  I’m a busy girl!  Sure I had time to spend hours reading how all of y’all break the rules, but I didn’t have time to sit down and hash out my own post.  In case you missed it, Beth, b.k.a. SUAR, started all this with this fun post.

Without further adu…

1.   I watch ENTIRELY too much television.  Just take yesterday for example.  I worked all day, came home, ran, took a shower, cooked supper, and that put us at 7:00 on the dot.  Just in time for American Idol!  After that, there was The Office, then South Park reruns on Comedy Central until I fell asleep on the couch at about 9:30.  Two and a half hours of watching mindless TV.  And this is not an isolated event.  But who can blame me with so much quality entertainment at our fingertips?!

2.   I still deep fry certain things.  Approximately 90% of the time I eat very well and am careful about what put in my body.  But some things are still sacred.  Oven-baked tater tots SUCK!!!

3.   I cuss like a sailor.  It just makes you feel better.  Really.  Go on.  Try it.  Next time you stub your toe, instead of cringing and saying, “Oh, darn, that hurts,” shout the F bomb at the top of your lungs.  I promise your toe won’t hurt as bad.

4.   I don’t always wash my makeup off before going to bed.  This stems from my bad habit of falling asleep on the couch instead of getting in the bed when I start feeling sleepy.  If I wake up on the couch and then go wash my face, it wakes me up and I am forever trying to get back to sleep.  This is only an issue on the evenings I don’t run or spin because I always shower after that anyway.

5.   I drove my Corvette every day for a year and a half without registering it.  I took the license plate off my Altima and slapped it on that ‘vette and prayed I didn’t get pulled over.

6.   During this, the era of hybrids and greenness and sustainability, I now drive a gas-guzzling Tahoe.  I hate it.  13 MPH.  That shit’s gotta go.  And it will be, very soon hopefully.  The Tahoe was only bought so I would have something to drive while D does some work to my ‘vette and sells it this spring.  As soon as it is sold and I get that H3 I’ve been wanting, the Tahoe is gone too.  Yeah, we’re kind of car poor these days.  I really don’t know why we have so many, but we’re in the process of whittling it down.

7.   I wear my Night & Day contacts longer than the approved 28 days.  I haven’t gone blind yet.

8.   I don’t do self-breast exams.  I don’t know why.  I just don’t.

9.   I don’t donate blood.  I know I really should, but I’m such a puss when it comes to needles that I just can’t bring myself to do it.  I pass out when I have blood drawn at the doctor’s office anyway.  I’m afraid I’d go into a full-on stroke if I had to lay there with a needle in me for as long as it takes to give blood.

10.  I tan in a tanning bed and I lay out and don’t wear sunscreen.  Except on my face.  I get freckles on my nose if I don’t.

How do YOU break the rules???
