Jae’s an enabler, and I’ve got bad habits…

Hi! My name is Kate, and I have a problem.
Two.
No, make that several.
1) Chocolate, and dark variants thereof.
2) Books
3) All things knitting – yarn, books, magazines, blogs, new patterns…
4) Mindless evening tv to knit in front of.
5) Seedlings for my favourite plants.
6) Seed packets for my favourite veges

I fear that due to 3 children, one of whom thinks sleep is a dish best served intermittently, new house, and fidgeting over those last two long-drawn-out uni commitments, thinking about #1 and #3 are actually superseding every other interest, while #4 is facilitating them in their quest for dominance. #5 are sitting in a plastic bad alternately sweating and dehydrating while waiting for me to get on outside and plant’em. #6 are just waiting.

And in the immortal words of Billy Field, where chocky and knitting and mindless tv are concerned, all those shoulds, oughts and musts fade into the background, because:

Can’t help myself, bad habits
Well I’m running wild, lost control
And it’s a shame to think
That a boy like me
Has got so many, bad habits

Well I’m off the rails
My resistance fails, temptation’s got
A hold on me
And I can’t refuse
Because I always lose
Can’t help myself
Bad habits

Well it just ain’t right
That it’s something I can’t fight
I can’t stop going out and having fun
Well I tried to be good,
But I knew I never could
Cause I’ve got more bad habits than anyone

When I get the urge
I just got to splurge
I’m a slave to all my desires
Well I’m in a mess
Because I can’t repress all of these
Bad habits

Can’t help myself
Bad Habits
Well I’m running wild
Lost control
And it’s a shame to see
That a boy like me
Has so many bad habits

Well it just ain’t right
It’s something I can’t fight
I can’t stop going out and having fun
Well I tried to be good,
But I knew I never could
Cause I’ve got more bad habits
Than anyone

When I get the urge
I just got to splurge
I’m a slave to all my desires
Well I’m in a mess
Because I can’t repress all of these
Bad habits

All of these Bad habits x3

  1. The first step is admitting you have a problem. I love that Billy Field song!! I know all the words, a sad indictment on my ‘musical’ taste!! What’s Jae been doing?? Will there be a picture??

  2. If I’m going to lose the battle with yarn, patterns, and blogs, I’m taking as many people with me as I can. It makes for a much better party at the Yarn Addicted Anonymous meetings. 😉
