I'm That Kind of Girl

In the interest of sharing more of myself, here's a bunch of random facts about me:

As soon as I finish my degree and get a job, I'm using some of my hard earned money to pay someone else to clean the house.

I can't keep my mouth shut. I once asked a group of the cool kids: "Does your mother let you out of the house wearing that much make-up?" A friend told me the next day that they were planning to jump me, and not in a good way. I've never been able to not speak up when I think someone is being bullied. I think it's because I was bullied a lot when I was a kid. I tend to internalize things. This tragic inability to keep my mouth shut still gets me in trouble.

I was the weird kid.

I'm still the weird kid.

I think I'm funny. This is good because I'm my most constant audience.

It drives me crazy the way Monkey finds nudity so funny. I'll be trying to get him ready for his bath and we'll be getting nowhere because he's bent over, helpless with laughter, because his brother has taken off his clothes to get in the tub. "Naked! Naked Buddy! Naked! Bwahahah." I try to explain that it's not funny or unusual for a person to be naked in the bath, but I don't think the concept has sunk in yet.

Batman is my favourite member of Justice League. I'm impressed how, even though he doesn't actually have super powers, he keeps up with the other members (the man of steel, the fastest man in the world, the guy with the endless supply of green alien power in his ring, an amazon princess who can fly, you get the picture) just because he's really smart, he works out and he rocks a well-stocked utility belt. Plus he's rich and mad hot. Not like superman, who's way too goody goody for my tastes.

I was angry and disappointed when California banned gay marriage. Really mad. I thought that decision was messed up. And wrong. Seriously, California, that is just wrong. I expected more from you.

I have a lot of family photos up on the walls, along with a lot of Japanese wood cut prints and vintage travel posters. My furniture is really studenty. I have ikea stuff and wooden bookshelves stuffed with books. My place is really cluttered and, often, quite dusty. I see your houses with your shiny hard wood floors and grown up furniture and I wonder if I'm missing a nesting gene or something. Your houses are lovely. I like mine, too, though. Now if I could just get over feeling apologetic about it.

I wanted to be a stand up comedian when I was a kid. I like being on stage. I'm good at public speaking. I suck at carrying on a face-to-face conversation with actual people. I'm backwards like that.

I like Hugh Jackman better when he's shirtless, with claws, kicking butt than when he's singing and dancing.



I like video games. My kids play video games. My kids are really good at video games. I really like what that's done for their self-esteem.

I've never tried drugs. I've never even held a cigarette. I don't drink much. I don't think it's evil to do any of the above, it's just not for me: Drugs scare me, cigarettes gross me out and the one time I got drunk, in university, I threw up all night. I hate throwing up. I do love a nice strong pink cosmo, though, and a cold beer is never a bad thing.

I'm not religious. I find religion interesting, as a culture and a belief system. Not just Christianity, all religion, any belief system. I once told some women I shared an office with that I wasn't religious. They asked me how I could have any morals. That was an ignorant and rude question. I don't need religion to have morals. Just so you know.

I like geeky guys. I have a huge crush on TJ Thyne.

I'm not attracted to tall men. I don't like to be towered over.

I married my high school boyfriend. I don't like anyone else as much as I like him. So there you have it. (So romantic, no?).

I am more than just the sum of my chores. I don't like being dismissed because I'm a 'housewife'. This happens to me at parties: "Hi Melanie. Nice to meet you. What do you do?" "I take care of my kids full time." "Oh. Hey look there's Sheryl. Talk to you later. Hey Sheryl! Wait up! Save me from this incredibly boring woman." or, worse: "Well, good for you!"

I like shopping and celebrity gossip and fashion and reality tv and chick flicks and chick lit. I like comic books and video games and dude movies and dick jokes. I like Jane Austen, and philosophy and anthropology and psychology and learning and reading and foreign films with subtitles and documentaries. I like Harry Potter and Facebook and YouTube and vampires. I like to paint and draw and crochet and make jewelry and write. I like coffee and chocolate cake and hamburgers and barbecues. I like salad and brussel sprouts and chicken breast. I like dumb stuff, I like smart stuff, I like girl stuff, I like guy stuff, I like kid stuff, I like popular stuff, I like stuff everyone else hates. I like variety.

I don't like pig-headed bigots, people who litter and people who don't let other people out in front of them in traffic.

I love CBC radio.

I enjoy my own company, except when I drive myself nuts.

I can be quite an anxious person. I try to keep my anxiety under control. I used to suffer from panic attacks. I don't like being stressed.

I'd rather be yelled at than lied to. At least then I can fight back.

I have a temper.

I'm nice.

And I love your shoes.

L~ said...

Hope your day holds a little bit less excitement than yesterday's did. And nice to get to know you better today. I personally would have folded under the exchange - not good at stress or conflict! Go you!!

Staci said...

That is quite the list. I have to say, TJ Thyne is quite the hottie!

Love Bites said...

You are so totally one of our kind of people. You just don't know it yet. Or, maybe you do. ;)

Reluctant Housewife said...

LB - You love me. Just admit it already. You want me to drink the cool aid.

Reluctant Housewife said...

Staci - TJ Thyne is ridiculously hot. Have you noticed how blue his eyes are?

I have an insane, school girl crush on him. It's silly, but fun.

Reluctant Housewife said...

L - thanks! I actually sort of like conflict. I like to argue. I might have been a lawyer if I wasn't bored to tears by trying to learn the intricacies of the law.

Reluctant Housewife said...

And Whee! This responding to people in the comments is fun.

Sally Jane said...

I Loved this post! It's good to hear honesty and REAL stuff about people. I also feel that I'm not funny or witty enough in my blog, and I'm still really new to it. But I'm learning, and I look forward to reading more from your blog!

Reluctant Housewife said...

Thanks Sally Jane! I really hold back here. I don't really share many of my opinions. I guess I'm worried I'll make people angry or that people won't like me.

I'm going to try to do better, though. Get over needing people to like me. Actually share what's on my mind. Have thoughts... That kind of thing.

Love Bites said...

I am warming to you, slightly.

Tell me, RH. What would be the worst thing that would happen if someone didn't like something you said here? How would that actually impact you?

scrappysue said...

i just loved this post. we have so much in common, 'cept ur like WAY more articulit than me.

as for thsoe wimin in the office - i would not have been able to keep my big mouth shut either!

i totally feel the same way about religon as you do. in fact, because i'm a big fat shit stirrer too, i'll go so far as saying that 'all organised religon is dangerous'. not my own words, but ones that i certainly live by.

if california banned gay marriage, does that mean ellen isn't married anymore? that whole thing confused me.

..and as for talking at parties and watching people run when you tell them what you do - that whole 'good for you' brought back so many memories! i actually hate the fact that i'll be just like everyone else now, in that i DO have a paying job.

being a SAHM was such a cool party trick.

and i see you have a new fan in LB - have you brought him to the light side mel!?! - and of course those that know you, know that you could handle people not liking something you say/write.

what's it matter tho? this is your blog!

Reluctant Housewife said...

RH - I imagine I'd handle it like I handled you and your merry band of followers.

The idea of it is actually much worse than the actual event - just like most of the other things I'm scared of.

Reluctant Housewife said...

Sue - Thanks!

California - as far as I know, and I don't know anything for sure - they haven't forced the couples who were already married to get divorced. There's an internet protest requesting that they not go there. See a piece of it here: http://www.vimeo.com/3089746

From my understanding - It's just no longer legal to perform a same sex marriage.

Who does that? Give a right and then take it away? That's just awful. I was really upset when I heard about it.

The Nag said...

I prefer Superman to Batman, although I like your rationale.

Merrily Down the Stream said...

THe 2 things that stuck out the MOST with me is Brussell sprouts - wouldn't eat them if the were the last food left on this little marble
Vampires - COMPLETELY and TOTALLY fascinated with them. Ciao

John Deere Mom said...

This was such an awesome post. And I love your shoes too.

Alex the Girl said...

I was angry and disappointed when California banned gay marriage.

Yes, it ticked me off too. Love this post.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

I LOVED THIS - Great to get to know you better!!

and I so don't know how to keep my mouth shut either!! And I have never done drugs (although I did smoke for awhile there) and I don't drink either.

Parent Club said...

Your list is simply Awesome-ness!

I was thinking "me too" to many of your points.

Love Bites said...

Scrappy Sue, you are a 46-year-old woman. Please stop speaking in 14-year-old textspeak.

Secondly, I, LB, am a 43-year-old mommy. Bet that just shocks the bejesus out of you.

Thirdly, Quite clearly, RH has always been slightly on the dark side, and she will eventually be unable to deny the insidious pull of the pitch black siren song of Ask.

That is all.

Reluctant Housewife said...

For the record Sue is an amazing, creative, funny, lovely woman. Sue you talk in whatever kind of speak you want. Rock it, girl. I know you do.

LB - I knew you were a 43 year old mom from your profile. Colour me YAWN by that info. And, I might be a bit on the dark side in that I do not embrace fluffy bunnies and heart felt gushing and I can hold my own in an argument but to be honest I'm way too nice, too sunshine and rainbows, to fully embrace the dark side.

Love Bites said...

I'm sorry, but even 14 year old girls can't rock it when they use the term "ur." Give me a f'ing break.

And, if you don't have a dark side, how are you going to break the spirits of those darling children and ensure that they need years of therapy, RH?

The teenage years are coming, dear. Best gird your loins.

Reluctant Housewife said...

Sue rocks everything she puts her hand to.

I didn't say I don't have a dark side. I have lots of sides.

scrappysue said...

LB - i have THREE teenage daughters. call me for advice anytime. ok?

like NEtime

14 year old girl said...

Lame.

(insert 14-year-old eyeroll)

Future Mama said...

Haha! thanks for letting us into your life a little more! I think you should have stuck with being a stand-up comedian cause you are funny lady! :)

{Katie Lane} said...

Thanks for sharing.

Cairo Typ0 said...

I'm weird too - it's what makes us special. :)

San said...

Ya. I just got those shoes. Love them too! Hahaha!

Oh man, you ARE funny and very quirky! ;) Love the way you write!

the girl said...

You are, in a word, fantastic!

Oh, and DITTO to the Superman-is-too-goody-goody thing... Wolverine (especially a shirtless, beclawed Hugh Jackman Wolverine) any day!

xo

mub said...

I LOVE that your son finds nudity so hilarious! Reading that totally made my day, seriously *L*

Laurel said...

I'm going to have to google TJ Thyne because I am tragically unhip. You can't say you don't know yourself!

Elizabeth said...

I'm right there with Laurel and heading to Google. That was an awesome list - I should do that kind of thing. I think I feel kind of the same way you did before you wrote your Blog Proud post, that I'm keeping perhaps a little too much of myself to myself. Maybe I need to come out of my shell a bit. I loved this post.

Yaya said...

Oh I loathe going to my husband's work parties where everyone says 'what do you do?' and I say 'I'm a nanny' and they go 'oooohhhhhh' (insert awkward silence).

"studenty furniture" love it!

Kris said...

Stopping in from SITS and I love this post!! I feel much the same way....and seeing all these women in their big 'ol fancy houses....that like you said are all shiny, etc....I often wonder if I'm missing something too. Never thought about Batman like that lol...but that's an interesting take...and so true!

Pam said...

Totally awesome post. Your personality really comes through here (and in all your posts). You have great "voice". I'm your newest follower.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

I think Batman is best too.

James' Mommy said...

Brussell Sprouts.. You had me until brussell sprouts.

MrsM said...

If you love TJ Thyne then obviously you watch Bones, no? I started watching because of David Boreanaz because I will watch anything that features anyone from Buffy at least one time...but you also mentioned you like vampires-so maybe you watched that too?

We will be good friends.

Creative Junkie said...

I absolutely LOVED the "I am more than just the sum of my chores" ... that is a great, true line.

Mighty M said...

Great list. I tend to be a wee bit anxious myself!!

B.o.B. said...

Cute post. I love that you don't like tall men. I am the total opposite which really works out for us should we both need to look. Then again you love your hubs which is quite refreshing! Love the blog.

carma said...

Thanks for admiring my shoes :D

Karen MEG said...

Okay, I just met you and I love you!

I always had that same admiration for Batman, too funny! And Hugh, well I must admit I love him as host of the Oscars because it showed that a guy with rock hard abs and a knock you down smile, still can have a softer, Broadway side.

Very nice to meet you!

Queenie Jeannie said...

I just so Big Red Puffy ♥ this post!!! One of your very best!

Teresha and Damon said...

Love your attitude!

Miss Behavin said...

Stopping by from SITS. It was nice reading and learning about you. I feel like I really know you now.

Brandy said...

Yes, my shoes are fabulous! Thank you for noticing.

Anita said...

Shoes, the ultimate accessory!
Great list of who you are..........
California voters are idiots.......there I said it.

withoutadornment said...

I think it's a natural state of being for women to be apologetic over the state of their houses.

Happy SITS day from a fellow Canadian!

Nerdy Jess said...

Stopping by from SITS, I love this post. I'll def be back :)

Superjaxster said...

What a great post! I agree with you about CA, I expected more from them as well...
Happy SITS day :)

Rachel said...

We would totally be friends in real life!

Astrid said...

Fantastic post!

I always feel apologetic when asked what I do...SAHM just doesn't sound very glamorous.sigh.

Happy SITS day!

Jeannie Finelli, RN said...

Thank you for sharing your feelings. We have a lot in common :)

Tonya said...

I loved...and I love your shoes! I am going to have to post something like this on my blog. It's a good way to get to know someone. I enjoyed lingering at your blog this morning!

Robin said...

I love geeky guys too.....but they have to be cute and have good taste and manners as well.....oh and money too.....not a lot.....but I'm not going to support him. :-)
I have thought about having someone else come in to clean, but I would have to clean the house first. Therefore, I'm not getting anyone in to clean. :-)

Have a beautiful day.

Laura said...

Happy SITS Day!!

Tricia said...

Great list!

Adrienne said...

I love geeky guys, too. And hugh jackman shirtless...

A new way to define your morals: Mom Operating Reliably and Lacking Sleep.
Happy Sits Day!

(army)Wife said...

I love public speaking and I'm good at, but I have the hardest time have a face-to-face convo, also. I never really understood that part about myself.

Mom Taxi Julie said...

"I enjoy my own company, except when I drive myself nuts."

I thought I was the only one that did that..

I said...

Hello from SITS!

Are you quite certain we weren't separated at birth? I'm so with you on the good on stage, bad with one-on-one thing, and I've always struggled to understand that.

More importantly, I adore Jane Austen, gosspip mags, and Hugh Jackman, more or less in that order. I find it vitally important to have priorities.

Lizz said...

I was pissed about California too.

I'm not a tall man lovah either. I don't want ot have to stretch for a kiss. Too much work.

I'm not wearing any shoes ;)

Myiam said...

Seems like we have a lot in commun. Love the way you write...I laughed a lot reading your post.

Just visiting from the SITS.

Little Miss Baker said...

wow I love this. We have a lot in common, except the tall men part :) hehe my fiance is 6' 4 and I am only 5' 1 (almost!) Happy SITS Day! I really enjoyed your posts!!

Marrdy said...

Ok, I beg to differ here!! Superman is totally hot..and brussel sprouts? yuck. And Hugh Jackman? Singing as Curly in Oklahoma..you can't get any hotter than that! Great list. It's good to get to know you a little.

And I don't think you're the weird kid anymore!!

Mommy of Many said...

enjoyed this post! Have a wonderful day.

Pricilla said...

Hmmm, how do you feel about goats?

Happy SITS day!

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

hee hee - loved reading this again - what was up with LB?? was that a joke?

Kanga said...

Here from SITS ...

Hmmm...Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is amazing, but ... Hugh Jackman as Leopold is to DIE FOR! Mmmmmm!!!

It was nice getting a peak into the person that is you! Thanks for sharing!

Blessings!

Stereos and Souffles said...

And I love your shoes...so cute!
Happy SITS day!

Mira said...

Great list, keep up the work at exposing your true self! Hard to do but usually worth it...

shortmama said...

Really? You love my slipper? well they are pretty comfy!

Renni said...

You remind me of ...me! Happy SITS Day! Hugh is prettier without his shirt!

Kelly said...

Great post. Keep it coming

Happy SITS day

The Mom @ Babes in Hairland said...

Lots of interesting stuff about you I'd say! Thanks for being honest! My husband gave me a huge lifesized cardboard cut out of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine that he got from 7-11 as part of my Mother's Day gift. (How's that for sweet & romantic! :) ) I don't think I'm as much a fan as you, but it was hilarious to have a tower Hugh in my living room for a couple weeks! Enjoy your day in the SITS spotlight!

Days of Whine & Noses said...

that is a very long list!

Visiting from SITS!

PS...I wear flip-flops 24/7 365 days of the year :)

MochaTrina said...

Congrats of bieng the SITS FB! I prefer the shirtless, tight jeans wearing Hugh Jackman as well.

Holly Noelle said...

I'm scared of bullies too. Let's just say school was hell for me.

greedygrace said...

Totally agree about Hugh Jackman.

I have no idea who TJ Thyne is, but he looks delicious in the picture!

Katie said...

My shoes? Oh thank you!

Haa haa congrats on your sits day!

Isabel Princes said...

COngrats on your SITS day! You have a new follower! I too married my high school sweetheart. We met at 15 and have been together ever since (13 years).
Great post!

Helen McGinn said...

Yup, big gob here too. It'll get ya into trouble but it will also get you out of it faster than a flying fiddywickle. ;O) LOVE your blog...and you ARE funny!

Helen xx

Robbie S. Redmon, LPC said...

Excellent post! Happy SITS Day!

Brooke said...

love it. :)

Magaly Guerrero said...

I read the post, I swear it, but you posted a pic of Hugh Jackman going all Wolverine and you lost me. The man is HOT!

Zeemaid said...

yup I always seem to go for the geeky underdog kind of guy too...

like Murdoch in the A-Team. I liked him way better than Face *L*

Good to get to know you more! :)

Happy SITS.

Rebecca said...

Love this post - we'd so be friends IRL!

California did get it WRONG!

And while I am religious, I know plenty of non-religious people w/ more morals than those who are religious! Yikes, I can't believe someone asked you that!

I don't do the video game thing (well, unless it involves Tetris or Pinball)...but I'm with you on Batman - in fact I've watched my DVR'd copy of The Dark Knight no less than 3 times since Saturday :).

Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane said...

Another great post!

I loved the last pic but I have no idea who he is...guess I'll google him.

And I love your paragraph about no being religious. I am the exact same way but don't think I could have described it that well.

dddiva said...

Loved this post- takes guts to spill it like that, you should be proud of yourself.

One of my fave quotes- no one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Don't worry about what anyone else thinks.

Glad I stopped by from SITS.

So Not Mom-a-licious said...

What about people who throw cigarettes out the window? Most of the time I swear I am going to ram them to the side of the road just so I can spank them!

Norine said...

Hi there. Sorry I'm late to wish you a happy SITS -- on vacay w/the kidlet.
Fun post. I'm with you on CA's bone-headed move re gay marriage. Everyone should have the same rights and protections under the law.
Re religion -- go girl! You might enjoy (if you haven't seen it already) Bill Maher's Religulous. Great flick.
Keep on writing!!

I have anxiety too, so I can relate. It sucks.

Adrian's Crazy Life said...

Wow, this is like through the looking glass. You're so much like me, only without teenagers who come home mildly buzzed at 3:00 in the morning (sigh) on a work night.

I was never the "weird" kid, at least I don't think I was, but I think I was always the "different" kid. Always the deep thinker and always with my own unique point of view. Plus I luv TJ Thyne and totally don't get cigarettes, drugs, or barfing - ew! But I'm more a rum & Coke kinda girl. And housework - yeah, not so much...

Hope you're rockin' your SITS day!

Ali said...

You are so much fun. Thanks for sharing!

Lisa said...

You made me laugh!! I really enjoyes your post!

Angie Marion said...

What a great post!

I'm not wearing shoes though, so whaddya say now???

LOL!

Nakedness is funny. Well... sometimes...

Enjoy your SiTS day!

ella said...

Hi There...how's your SITS day?? I was featured Friday and WHOA DOGGIES! It was craaaazy fun! I'm still not done reading all the comments. I hope your day is just as great. But I have to say I really love the song and dance Hugh and can't stand the other! Sorry! I'm a Broadway nerd!

"FINE"al thoughts... said...

That was very informative and clever. Thanks for sharing though I have to admit I was glad California voted that marriage is between a man and a woman but I think any hatefulness on either side of the argument is wrong.

Anne said...

It's so nice to "meet" you!!

Anonymous said...

That was hillarious! Awsome!You do have a big potential to do stand up comedy. I would come to your show!

SmartPumpkin'sMom said...

Good read!

Michelle said...

somethings wrong with my house too.

i'm with you on hugh jackman.

the just a housewife gig...you would love the comments about having 6...or homeschooling. they are fun!

variety!

this was an awesome blog post!!!!!!!

aforestfrolic said...

Yeah you should totally do stand up comedy...that was hilarious and great! The 'dick jokes' part was wonderful, hahaha.

I know a few religious people with no morals. Sad but true.

Shelley said...

I outed my inner geek on my blog awhile ago, love "Bones" myself, so sad there's no more Buffy though.

I love posts like this. You can really learn a lot about a person.

You go girl!

Gamma Sharon said...

Great post... liked getting to know you.
Hope you had a great SITS FB day!

Vickie said...

Love reading these getting to know ya lists!

Vampires, Yeah...California, boo!

The Redhead Riter said...

That took a little time to write I'm sure because it would take me a while to breakdown the "me" inside of this body. Thanks for sharing and it was nice to meet you!

Rbarakat said...

You are so funny! You tell 'em girl!

Mommynightowl said...

Hey SITSTA of the day!

I also think TJ Thyne is hott. Hodgens is my favorite on Bones, and for the longest time I only called him Hodgens. But then I looked him up and he is a really good actor. I like him in his indie you tube videos. That one where he tells everyone compliments to make them smile, and gets all depressed when he can't make the girl of his dreams smile. So good.

I love your blog. Keep the great stuff coming!

Cherise said...

Nice to meet you! And I love Hugh Jackman, too - in any form :)

http://www.papermoonies.blogspot.com said...

so the next time some one says oh so what do you do.
"What besides take care of my children and husband, Oh"
I love to read, as a matter of a fact this book I am reading now is
Bla bla bla.........
So what authors do you enjoy?

(blank deer eye balls in headlights is what your likely to get I am sure)

And I love to crochet and make art, here is my card you can view my online shop.
I also teach in home classes and I have fantastic group rates if your interested give me a shout out..
nice meeting you....
Ta Ta
You said yourself you are good at public speaking so why not start up a mommy and me group of peeps to just hang out and crochet and chit chat...
Or share video game secrets with.

So there!!!
stopping over from sits.

Mama Mair said...

I feel the same way about my house.
Who needs a grown up house? You just have to clean it.
I love my cleaning ladies. Can't live without them - but I wonder what they think when they come over to clean.
Who lives in this house, college kids? teenagers?
Really you must stop by Tales from the bum bum patch:

Becca said...

Who is this TJ guy? He is a hottie! I've never heard of him.
I feel like I know you a lot better now.

Mariah said...

TJ Thyne!!! Are you kidding! The HOTTEST Squint out there! Ah....I have nothing else to say. I'm stuck on TJ:)

Great post:)

Kim said...

I prefer Hugh Jackman shirtless too! And I prefer Batman too! He is just so much hotter because he is smart and strong! And I married my high school boyfriend too! Do people not realize how incredibly obnoxious it is when they act like being a stay at home mom is some lowly profession!? Drives me absolutely crazy! I'm proud of what I do and you should be too!

PS I love your shoes as well!

I like Hugh best that way, too ;)

I stand up for kids being bullied, too. Not because I ever was (anymore than the next kid) but because it's just so wrong!!

Stopped by from SITS!
