Default My favorite strange thing to do

When I am stressed or going to listen to a new song. I love to go to the little mini car wash and go through and turn up the music really loud. The machines are scrubbing it smells nice. Sometimes I go twice, if it's a bad day. Today, my kid was bummed and gucess where we went....... To the car wash and my kidlet felt so much better and was laughing and joking. Kidlet chose the music today.

I think I started the car wash thing right before Kidlet was born, so it's 11 years of car wash training.

Strange but the music sounds better in there....LOL

What is your strange thing to do?

Sit in a quiet room, maybe a fan running for air circulation & sound (maybe not) and just be.

No boyfriends around, no kids, no exes, just me & my thoughts.

I find it very relaxing to switch on my amp, hold the guitar in one hand, sit cross legged on the floor and fiddle with the effects and move the guitar about while letting the droning feedback wash over me. I need more effects so I can create even more interesting noises!

My favorite thing to do that OTHER people think is strange is that when I find a movie or a documentary I like, I play it over and over. I don't necessarily sit there and watch it from beginning to end over and over, but I have it playing on the DVD player while I'm on the internet or doing other things. People have asked, "But why? You already know how the movie ends. What's the point?" And to that I say, "It's perfectly usual for people to listen to the same music or song over and over. But WHY? They already know how the song ends."

I hate being clothed. I get undressed as fast as I can when allowed.

I don't think that's very strange.

I have to agree. I walk in my house ignoring the anklebiters yapping for my attention. I have 5 of them. To the back slider let them outside. I then go in and take off my clothes and put on a short T dress or long oversized T. I can't stand clothes touching me.

I need to stay decent for my kidlet and her friends. However, I can do it in comfort.

When I get stressed out there are only two things I want to do; clean, or play guitar. Wen I get stressed I get a lot of nervous energy which in turn feeds the feeling of stress. Cleaning the house burns off that energy and leaves me with a feeling of accomplishment. Win - win! :P Playing guitar doesn't burn off energy, but it calms me and helps me find my center again. I will usually play slow music with lots or minor chords, or open tune and just play with the different sounds. I guess these are not exactly weird, but it is just what I do

I spend time in the cemetary. Not because I know someone there but because walking into and through a cemetary is like stepping through a vail. The energy within the confines of a cemetary is noticeably different. I treat cemetaries like parks. I sit out on the grass and eat a sandwich, write, sing, and watch the world around me.
