How to read people

According to Joe Navarro, former FBI special agent (I want that job) and author of What Every Body Is Saying, you can learn to read people pretty well with just three little tips.

*If a person smokes or bites her nails excessively, she is soothing herself because she’s stressed.
*If someone preens (wears his hair perfectly styled or has beautifully manicured nails) it’s usually a healthy sign of confidence and self-respect. (I have trouble with this one because my hands/nails normally look like hell (dealing with paper all day) and I am a pretty confident and self-respecting woman.)
*Wearing a locket with a photograph or even a bracelet with someone’s names or initials on it shows that the wearer values relationships, traditions and family. (Or they’re a creepy stalker.)

5 random things I’d like to try

1. MorningStar Farms original sausage patties – I love the MorningStar Farms corn dogs and can’t imagine why I wouldn’t like the sausage, too.

2. Kotex Ultra Thin with Wings pads – yes, you read that right, I want to try out this pad. I have always (like since I was 16) been an Always Ultra Thin Regular with wings girl but they don’t have the “cut-a-way” that the Kotex pad is advertising. It’s been something that has annoyed me for almost ten years. Maybe it’s time to switch things up? (If you’re not ready to switch things up, you can at least get a free sample of the Always Infinity pads here.)

3. A pair of cute earth shoes. A friend of the family has a few pair that she loves, but I hadn’t found a pair that I thought were age-appropriate until I visited their website and began searching. I would wear a pair of the Dharma shoes in bordeaux glossy leather, or a pair of the Solar shoes in black glossy leather. I can’t believe it took me so long to actually go to the site and pick out the shoes I would wear!

4. Something from the new Vickery & Clarke line. CVS has this line of natural beauty products that I have been dying to try. The Detox Face Mask, the Mega Rich Eye Cream and the Hand Creme with Shea Butter are all on my list. Too bad there are no CVS Pharmacies in my area!

5. Fuze – in some of the slenderize flavors. Tangerine Grapefruit and Pomegrantae Acai Berry sound like such intriguing flavors! Maybe I’ll splurge the next time I’m at the grocery store! “7 great flavors, 10 calories, 2 grams of carbs, 4 key ingredients and 1 resolution!”

81. Plant a tree (thanks Angie) – whether I have to plant it in a bucket or in a yard, I will plant a tree. Maybe a lime tree. That’d be cool, right?

82. Play a game of poker – I don’t really know how, so I should learn and then play.

83. Try a new beer – definitely not doing this in the month that I’m detoxing that liver of mine. Hah! I would like to find an IPA that I like, since I’ve never had one that I really enjoyed the taste of.

84. Visit a National Monument – could be doing this right now. (I’m in South Carolina this week!)

85. Wear a headband – I don’t have a huge head, but headbands hurt the area behind my ears. I’d like to find one that didn’t.

86. Buy and keep a houseplant alive – I don’t have a black thumb, but I’ve killed a jade plant or two in my lifetime.

87. Bleach my teeth – I used to be really good about this but have slacked off. It improves my confidence and makes me feel pretty so I should be better about it!

88. Visit with Michelle and the girls in Virginia when they’re there – ‘Chelle’s husband is in the Marines and will be in Virginia for some training and they’ll be visiting. They live in California right now and so I don’t get to see them as often as I’d like to!

89. Get a kitty – this is mentally in the moving costs. Hopefully I can find a place that’ll let me get one!

90. Volunteer at least 100 hours – that’s only 2 hours a week and once I find a place I really ENJOY volunteering I think this will be easy!
