Secret Single (or always single) Behavior

Some people call them "guilty pleasures." Sex and the City (err...never seen it) would call it "Secret Single Behavior," as in the things you could never do in front of your boyfriend. Carrie confesses that when no one else is around, she likes to eat grape jelly on crackers standing up at the counter while reading Vogue.

Most of the time, it's not all that secretive, and we don't generally feel guilty for doing it. It's not always even that outrageous, just something that's slightly weird. For one of my college roommates it was always blowing on her curling iron before using it on her hair. Obviously it's nothing too secret or embarassing, otherwise I wouldn't be listing it in a blog. And I would never refer to it as "Secret Single Behavior," because I've never really not been single. I'm going to list just a few of my little quirks, and hopefully you will comment with some of yours!

-Coming home after work and immediately removing all articles of clothing and going straight for pajamas at 5:30 p.m.

-Sometimes I like to work out to classical music. Lately it has been Beethoven's 6th Symphony.

-High School Musical. Is it wrong that I own both the dvd and the cd? And that I can't wait for the sequel to come out on Friday?

-I fall asleep to Gilmore Girls. Every night.

-I'm not an organized person in the least, but my dvd's (all 160+ of them) must remain alphabetized at all times.

-I watch all of Kathy Griffin's comedy specials whenever they're on Bravo. Usually several times.

-Still purchase and read Archie comics. Still.

-Many times I will have entire conversations with someone in my car. By myself. Either things I really wish I could say, or things I would say if I could actually talk to that person. Sometimes I end up yelling, and a lot of times I end up crying.

-Practicing the poses and challenges I see on America's Next Top Model. I know.

-I eat peanut butter right out of the jar.

-I eat honey right out of the jar.

-I eat a lot of things right out of the jar.

-I love to file my nails while laying on my couch and watching E! News.

I, too, get into my pajamas ASAP after getting home from work. And I definitely also have full conversations with myself. In fact, I worry that since I live by myself, I will do this more and mor often until I start doing it at work or somewhere where I can get caught.

I am going to have to go with the group...I get into basketball shorts and a t-shirt as I walk through the door. (These are pjs for me) I promptly hop into my bed and proceed to get on the computer for a while and watch tv (the multi-tasking makes me feel productive). I wouldn't think that would be okay if you are married.
