We all have the funny little things that make us human. Stuff other fellow people may find flat out odd that only make sense to ourselves. I call my odd foibles " Aryella Logic". Here are some of mine.
Chinese take out food:
I think the excessive amount of rice in a Chinese dish one orders is a conspiracy to have less meat in a meal. I feel the same way about French fries. I enjoy fries and rice in moderation, but the amounts restaurants give is absurd. I see it as filler, a culinary afterthought. To combat this, I order appetizers for dinner. I'll order spring rolls, dumplings and onion rings in order to avoid the scourge of rice mountain.
Two Beers and a Red Bull:
A lot of rock shows we go to are at Webster Hall. I get inebriated very easily, so I moderate my drinking. A night at Webster Hall usually consists of four bands, so I want to be awake, not wasted so I can fully enjoy the headlining act. I start the night with a beer. Beers are 2 for 15$. I have the second beer at the middle of the second act. I enjoy mild tipsiness during the third act. In the middle of the third band, I'll have my last drink of the night, a Red Bull. I'm now ready to mosh the headliner.
The running verbal list:
"Okay, I'm gonna empty the littermaid, write this grant letter, water my plants and prime the canvas"
I say every task I'm going to do right before I do them, wether anyone is around to hear me or not. And then I do the tasks in the exact order I stated them in. I know why I do this. I'm not telling people around I have work to complete, I'm telling myself what I'm doing out loud. After years of being a chronic procrastinator, saying my necessary tasks is like making a contract to myself. It sounds silly, but this is how things get done in my world.
