Some things about Belle



We are so mature. We also are not ashamed to pick our noses and pass gas around one another. True love is yucky.


Thank you Robin at I’m Polycystic Inside for the TMI award! I’m usually not a big participant in chain-lettery things like this, but it has been a while since I have done a “things about Belle” post and I have quite a few new readers so I thought I would play along.

Here are the rules…

  • Thank the person who passed the award on to you.
  • List 7 things that people may not know about you.
  • Pass the award to 15 other bloggers and don’t forget to notify them as well.

So 15 people is kind of a lot so I’m just going to mention you at the end of this post and you can play along if you choose. I assure you, no bad Ju Ju will come your way should you not play, too. 🙂

7 Things About Belle That You Might Not Know 

1. I dread going to the movie theater. Not only am I cheap, I find the seats to be tremendously uncomfortable and I can’t press pause to take a pee break. I also can’t eat a bloody thing at the snack bar thanks to my million allergies. I sat through MANY movies as a teenager to try to “fit in” but now that I’m all grown up and done caring what people think I usually flat-out refuse. This can cause tension between Mr. Husband and I since going to the theater is one of his all-time favorite things to do. I can count the times I have been to the theater with him on one hand. Shame. On. Me.

2. When I was a little girl all I wanted in my grown-up life was to live in a small house with stairs and to have a ton of cats. I had completely forgotten about this childhood dream until I was about to get married and my mom reminded me. Here I am, a year-and-a-half later, married with four cats and an adorable little house with stairs. Ain’t life funny? *

3. I eat fancy Dijon mustard out of the jar with a spoon. So. Yummy. **

4. I have a terrible self-image issue that, in the past, has become dangerously close to full-blown anorexia. I am embarrassed and ashamed of this and fight the tears on a regular basis. I hate that some days I see such a beautiful, thin woman and others I see a warped view of myself. I know I’m just mis-reading my reflection, but I can’t stop the feelings and tears. Infertility has only enhanced this image problem, as now, in my sick brain, I am grossly imperfect both inside and out. I am terrified of how pregnancy might affect this image issue and am prepared, as much as I hate it, to seek professional help when the time comes.

5. I would take a back-scratch over a massage any day. I have a back-scratcher that I use to “backsterbate.”***

6. One of my favorite things about winter is that all the trees lose their leaves. I love to examine the complexity of their structure when they are not covered with all those pesky leaves.

7. I don’t care what the fashion gurus  say, you can never over-accessorize an outfit.

* I only claim responsibility for 25% of the cats as Mr. Husband came equipped with three of his own. 🙂

** No, I’m not pregnant.

*** I coined this word one night when Mr. Husband saw me scratching my own back with one of those silly wooden back-scratchers. “Is this a hint?” he asked. “Never!” I said coyly. “Sometimes a girl just has to backsterbate.”

    Ok, you guys are way too cute. Thanks for the award! So, oddly, I used to be anorexic and my favorite snack was dijon mustard with salt. ??? Weird!

      Does a love for mustard = anorexia? Or perhaps anorexia = a love of mustard? Or, most likely, are we just two rather strange women with a love of condiments and a fear of the mirror? 🙂

      (I totally have a mustard/onion sauce recipe I should share. It’s mustardiness is divine.)

    I have to sit in an aisle seat if we go to the movies. It’s a non-negotiatable. I sat in the middle of a massive theater for the last Harry Potter movie and went pee four times! People were MAD.

    I enjoyed reading this, and getting to know you better. Also, backsterbate is RAD.
