Just because

A teenie little giveaway.

1. Just leave a comment here and answer a burning question:
Do you talk to yourself?
I was in the grocery store talking to myself about different pasta options and wondered if anyone heard me and thought I was cuckoo. I talk to myself all the time when I'm at home sewing but public "self-conversation" may be a little more rare.
2. If you mention my teenie giveaway on your blog, leave another comment telling me and I'll enter you a second time.

I'll do the drawing at 7:00am PST on Tuesday.

Pin It!

I don't talk to myself, only in my head. I had a roommate who was an "outloud thinker" and it took some getting used to to know when I needed to respond!

Amy said...

Yes, I do. Though I admit that I talk to myself more when my husband is there. I'm not talking to him, but somehow in my subconscious I guess it makes is seem more like I'm not talking to myself. So we have a lot of conversations like this:
Me: (saying something to myself not very loudly)
Him: What did you say?
Me: Nothing. I was talking to myself.

:)

Anna Willett said...

i always talk to myself. especially when i am shopping. i compare things out loud to help me make decisions. i know people think i am crazy!

why not sew? said...

oh yeah definitely. i only feel cuckoo when i chuckle at myself. like right now!

LizA. said...

Sometimes. But more likely I find myself talking to inanimate objects. I also talk to the dog a lot and DH keeps thinking I'm talking to him.

QuiltedSimple said...

I talk to myself all the time - and usually answer myself too - and I do tend to listen to my answers as that is what I typically go with.
Kris

Stacey said...

No - Unless you count the voices in my head as "myself"? : )
Thanks!

Jessica said...

I talk to my cats, which i think qualifies as talking to myself, as they are rarely listening.

Nichole said...

i do tend to talk to myself. mostly when i am trying to make a decision between a couple things- such as pasta in the store. :)

Suzanne said...

I talk to myself a lot, especially at work. My boss came into my office yesterday as I was talking to myself, and said, "That doesn't sound good when you're talking to yourself in that tone." lol

Vicki said...

:)
Yes, I do talk to myself sometimes. Sometimes my husband will say "what?" and I'm like--I was talking to myself! Or... did I say that out loud?

MLE said...

Oh, yes, I definitely talk to myself!! My husband will think I'm on the phone, but really I'm just talking to me!

colleen said...

all the time :-)

Cathy said...

I always talk to myself and my coworkers also do.

Juli said...

I do. I am trying to make the effort to say positive things instead of the typical: "what the &%$#@!!! Juli!!!"
:)

Kris said...

Yup, I'm a think out loud gal. It's funny that you posted this today because yesterday I was planning out a block for a quilting bee and realizing how much I talk to myself. I tend to say things like "if I put this here, then that will work there, ok, ok" Glad to know I'm not the only crazy one! :)

Miss Summerson said...

Yep, I talk to myself too but normally just when I'm at home. Although...I'm sure I've done it in public places as well.

Susan said...

Yes, I have to admit it: sometimes I talk to myself. Very often, I am alone all day in the house, and I find it healthy mentally to "keep myself company" from time to time. Sometimes, I even sing!

Anita said...

I talk to myself only occasionally and it is usually when something has frustrated me. I can't remember if I've spoken to myself in public. My nearly 5 year old talks to herself all of the time. I used to do this as well when I was a kid.

MichelleB said...

Yes, I do. More often, I'll talk to "things." The computer, my fabric, the pot boiling over on the stove - "no, no, please don't do that!"

Susan said...

I will be happy to spread the word and tell people about your giveaway on my blog. I LOVE that O Cherry O fabric line!

Claudia said...

I talk so much to myself that it can cause confusion. At work is even kind of funny, with people asking "you're talking to me"? over and over again.
I also post about your question and giveaway in my blog (http://tinyurl.com/r9dw6l)
Thanks for the present and it's funny to know that I'm not alone in the world of selftalking. :D

chermonblie said...

I'm ALWAYS talking to myself. Only outloud when alone... in my head the rest of the time. Most especially if I've had a disagreement with someone... I replay it over and over with the words I SHOULD have said! :)

Rachael Adele said...

Thanks for being so generous-- I don't talk to myself outloud, but I do ask my dogs questions pretty regularly.

angela said...

Perhaps it is a sign of a creative mind?! I totally talk to myself all the time. Just in my head when I'm out and about (I hope!) Just like chermonblie said - especially when I'm replaying a disagreement or embarassing situation.

AmBurg said...

Yes, I do, but now that I'm pushing a baby around, I talk to him instead. :-) I had a friend whose mom said it was the sign of a genius. Lovely giveaway.

LeeAnn said...

On occation I do talk to myself but it's always in a tone of self disipline. Ex. "Oh, LeeAnn (sometimes a middle name if it was really bad), why on earth did you do that!?"

ohthatashley said...

I always talk to myself. Like someone else said, I talk to inanimate objects too. I always say 'hi' and 'bye' to my apartment whenever I come and go. I guess that makes me a freak, huh?!

Bison Girl said...

Oh yes, I talk to myself.
Mostly when sewing or shopping.

Erin said...

Oh my gosh...I am an Arabic major and I find myself talking to myself in Arabic aloud all the time. I am afraid I am going to be hauled away one day!

Tiff said...

I was musing one day while sitting in the airport that, I remember when you used to avoid people who walked around talking to themselves all the time, now they really usually just have a bluetooth ear piece on. How are you supposed to be able to pick out the crazies? Then again I think walking around with a phone attached to your ear all day may make you a "crazy" :-)

Denise said...

Yep, I talk to myself. Especially when I'm trying to work something tricky out.

queenofhearts.denise@gmail.com

Anya said...

Lovely giveaway! I mainly talk to myself when I'm sewing or quilting, not usually in public except with quilting friends. Thanks for the chance!

Mushyhed said...

I talk to myself all the time. I just try not to do it in public places!

Cheryl Arkison said...

All the time! I also have arguments with people when they are nowhere near me. If the car had ears...

Emily said...

The key to public self-conversation is to do it when you're shopping with little kids. They don't listen to you anyway and everyone else will think you're talking to the little ones. ;) Thanks for the giveaway! (markusandemily@hotmail.com)

Aimee said...

I definitely verbalize the ongoing monologue in my head. Luckily I'm usually with my kids, so I seem less crazy. But if I'm at the grocery store without kids, I still rock the cart back and forth like I'm trying to soothe a baby... so there goes my impression of sanity! : )

love the Oh Cherry Oh line!

Chris said...

I seem to talk to myself a lot - I'm often under the impression I'm talking to my husband but he never answers so I guess I talk to myself more than I realise!
Chris x

Dorrie said...

Talk to myself. . .oh, yeah, with 5 kids, sometimes it's the only adult conversation I have! I also apologize to my computer when I make a mistake. . .my husband says I take goofy to a whole new level!

~D Spack~ said...

Yes, but not as much as I used to. I've 'toned' it down some because my son thinks its weird. Thanks for the fun!

Anonymous said...

I don't so much as talk to myself, but say things on a to do list outloud when my kids or someone is around. I guess I think by saying this stuff outloud, they will help me remember~YEAH RIGHT!!! ~Jan

Erin said...

yes! glad i'm not the only one!

Mary said...

I talk to myself, especially when I am frustrated or confused. I think saying it out loud helps me process. Pretty fabrics!

Samantha said...

I do talk to myself, especially when I'm alone in the car. When I'm in public, I try to keep it in my head--I'm not sure how successful I am!

Amber said...

I actually do it a lot :-0 That must mean I'm crazy! And I love giveaways that are "just because".

Edige said...

No, I don't talk to myself. I usually play different conversations in my mind, but they are never loud.
I just love these beautiful fabrics! Thank you for this great giveaway!
Edit from Hungary

Ruth B said...

Yes I talk to myself. And I talk to my dogs and explain things to them that leave them baffled. I live in the country and I'm home alone all day. Who else am I going to talk to?

Sam said...

I occasionally talk to myself. Well, I talk to myself in my head all the time and sometimes it leaks out. My mom talks to herself but you can't hear anything. Her lips move though and its just odd.

Sandy said...

I find myself doing it more and more. At least I have my kids with me a lot when I do, so people can assume I'm talking to them ;-)

Samantha said...

I posted on my blog about the giveaway!

beanie g said...

Are you kidding, I'm constantly talking to myself ... in fact, sometimes I wish I would just shut up!:)

Heidi said...

I had to laugh when I read about you talking to yourself. I find myself doing it all the time. Especially when I am home alone and I think "wow, it's a good thing no one is here!"

debbievds said...

Hi I love a giveaway- yay- perfectly fine to talk to yourself I find they are the most interesting conversations anyway lol

Andrea said...

Yes I talk to myself. In fact my toddler has started doing it too. haha

Thanks for the cute giveaway!

heather said...

I do talk to myself BUT I don't answer myself! VERY IMPORTANT!:) What a fabulous giveaway!!

Cisca said...

Yes i did, but now with two dogs in the house i talk to the dogs.

Bonnie said...

Yes I talk to myself out loud but only at home or in the car. With the new cell phones you can get away with talking to yourself more often. People just think you are on the phone.

Karen said...

I talk to myself a lot. Most of the time I try to do it only when I'm alone. But I have been nabbed a few times in public.

A Quilter Awakens said...

I don't usually talk to myself outloud, but boy the voices in my head never shut up!

Wood Violet said...

I'm with A Quilter Awakens above - not so much out loud talking but lots of conversations in my head.
Thanks for the great giveaway.

Starbound Studios said...

Hy there, love this set of prints! Talking to myself...not all the time, but I do once in a while. My grandma always said, "It's fine if you talk to yourself, but you should start getting a bit worried when you answer." Haha, I've always remembered that! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

Always,
Katy

MonFilRouge said...

When I was reading your post I was actually telling to myself " oh nice a giveaway.." I do that very often, sometimes it helps me to focus on something when I speak it out..my kids and husband are used to it,but already did it in public too..ups¨

Barbie said...

Yup, talk to myself all the time...especially in the grocery store when I am trying to figure out prices. I also talked to both of my kids when they were babies..."Should we have spagetti for dinner?" when there was no way they could actually answer. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Tiffany said...

Pretty much all of the time! Especially if I am prepping myself for a conversation (like with my boss or something :)) So, you are soooo not alone!

MonFilRouge said...

Made a link from my blog to yours mentioning your shop and giveaway

Sylvie said...

I sometimes talk to myself when I'm upset or happy, but most of the times it is only in my head.
Don't worry, you are not alone!

ANd thank you for the giveaway, I just love those fabrics!

Casey said...

I talk to myself at home all the time! I haven't done it out in public though... not yet anyway

Ellen said...

I talk to myself a lot in my head, and sometimes have to ask my husband if I said something out loud. I know I say things in my head a lot!

Jackie Russell said...

You aren't alone I talk to myself sometimes too.

Mrs. Doodle said...

Oh you're not suppose to talk to yourself? Glad you told me... wondering why people always give me weird looks! :)

mandy said...

I don't talk out loud to myself, but I catch myself silently mouthing words or quotes that are running through my head. And I have very dramatic facial expressions. When I "come to" and realize I look like a muted tv show, I quickly look around and hope no one saw me.

Bunny said...

I talk to myself. What is worse is I talk with my hands, so.. even if I am just thinking about something (not talking out loud) My husband still knows when I am talking to myself.

Jackie Russell said...

I posted your give away on my blog!

asimplestitch said...

I talk to myself all the time. And sing to myself. My husband says he can't believe how noisy I am. But it isn't just at home. I'll regularly talk to myself in stores, buying groceries. Anywhere I am, I talk to myself.

The Calico Cat said...

In my mind, I have complete conversations.
My husband on the otherhand thinks aloud...

Nova said...

Not in public, usually.

Jennifer said...

Oh my gosh...I talk to myself ALL THE TIME when I am sewing. Usually when I am nervous or about to make a mistake!!

Dawn-Marie said...

I definitely talk to myself! I also talk to my kids when we are out. Like a 9 month old is really gonna answer me?
Thanks for the giveaway!

Linda T said...

I usually only talk to myself if I mess up or if I'm really annoyed with something or someone. Count me in on your giveaway. It looks fun!

ltenhage@gmail.com

Susan said...

I do talk to myself all the time. I try to keep it down in public though. I know people think I'm mad, especially my kids. Lovely giveaway, please add me in. Thanks!

Margaret said...

Oh yes, in fact, I go one step farther and sing (loudly) to myself. Perhaps I'm another Susan Boyle in the making.

Judy H. said...

I tend to talk to myself (more a mutter than fully aloud, I think) when I'm looking for something or trying to figure something out. Which means I do it in the store all the time. I've tried to tone that down, though, ever since this nice lady answered me, and I hadn't realized I'd said anything!

Jackie said...

Of course I talk to myself, doesn't everyone? LOL. Sometimes out loud and sometimes in my head. But the real burning question is do you answer your own questions??

Suzan said...

I live alone. Well, I have a cat but she doesn't talk back. Anyway, I talk to myself so badly that when I was living in my apartment the neighbors thought I had a roommate! I also talk to myself in public places - like the grocery store, library, Home Depot, etc. I tell my friends I am just a shopping cart and 2 cats away from being one of those strange folks on the street...

And, now, because I want that little charm pack I am going over to my blog to post the info about yours! http://reluctantquilter(dot)blogspot(dot)com

Anonymous said...

Yes, I absolutely do talk to myself. Sometimes I answer myself, too. Scary, huh?

Cindy said...

Not very often but when I do, it's a "bad word" that I don't want anyone to know that I said. So, I say it (usually when sewing) and then gasp and look around to see if anyone heard. Then I think "I'm a youth pastors wife, I shouldn't say things like that!" :)

I work at home and talk to myself all day long. I know it's weird! Maybe not as weird as I thought, reading the comments above!

Robin said...

I talk to myself all the freakin' time. I used to get embarrassed, but at this point, I've accepted that that's just the way I am. It helps me focus sometimes. :)

It's nice to hear I'm not the only one!

Emily B said...

I blogged here:
http://emilyisland.blogspot.com/2009/06/thursday-again.html

Holly said...

Oh,yes. Yes, I do. In the shower...in the car...haven't caught myself in public yet, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time!

I Love Baby Quilts! said...

I talk to myself mostly at work, and just pretend i'm half talking to my co-worker across the cubicle wall!

Amy said...

If you mean out loud, then no, I don't. I am way too self conscious. But I talk to myself plenty in my head!

Sue Cahill said...

I talk to myself all the time, silently and out loud. I am a computer programmer and I know all the other programmers around me do the same thing. There is a constant buzz in the office.

Sue Cahill (sbonetsue at yahoo dot com)

Menina Nilda said...

I do talk to myself, but I'm constatntly in denial of that fact, so I pretend I'm talking to the computer, to the website, to my keys, to my bag... whatever is in front of me.

Mary L. said...

I not only talk to myself I answer too!

Sarah N. said...

I talk to myself in my head ALL the time - out loud - not so much. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Kim said...

YES, I'm guilty of talking to myself.

One of my kids said to me once,
"Are you talking to me?"

I responded,
"I am, if you're listening."

Deb C. said...

No I don't have regular conversations with myself but once in a while, especially if I make a mistake while cutting my precious fabric, I'll blurt out something like "oh you're such an idiot"!

Molly said...

Yes, I do talk to myself. And I must say that, after reading all these comments, that I feel a lot better about it!

jannza said...

Yes, I do talk to myself. And in public if need be! When I'm in a really light mood I may even sing to myself in public. Life is too short not to enjoy. : )

On my last trip to the store with my ds15, we had Julie Andrews My Favorite Things in our head and it was funny to sing about tea bags and pickles in place of her words. What a happy memory!

Talking and singing, YES!

Darcy said...

I constantly talk to myself -- especially while sewing.

I like to pretend it's to the kids when I'm in public places, but it's really to myself. I mean, can my 18-month-old really tell me how much chicken we're going to need? or if there are any apples left in the fridge?

Gnomemade said...

Talk to myself - I'm not sure if I'm proud or ashamed to admit I do. Though, I guess I could argue it's not talking to myself, but rather having conversations with some inanimate objects - like the dishwasher - why aren't you done yet?

szkornelia said...

I only talk in my head to myself. I try to pay attention not to say out loud what I think.

Thanks for a giveaway.

carmel said...

ha! that is such a funny question! its funny cues i think every body does it, right????

WoolenSails said...

Well, if I didn't, who else would I have to talk to;)

Debbie

szkornelia said...

I also mentioned the giveaway on my blog (szkornelia.blogspot.com), so please count me second time too. Thanks a lot!

jglitter said...

Oh yes! I am my own best conversational partner.

debbie in San Diego said...

Yes, I do talk to myself, but the kicker is......I also answer my self!!!!!!! Man I'm getting old!

AJ said...

I have to admit that I do it sometimes, it's usually when I'm calling myself crazy out loud for what I was just doing or thinking about.

Amy - Park City Girl said...

um . . . yea.

it helps, esp when the kids/fam aren't lisening :)

Heather said...

*raises hand* I talk to myself all of the time. Mostly in the car, or when I am listening to talk radio, I must give them my opinions on the matter. And if I am sewing, or cleaning, I like to tell myself how wonderful my work is, you know a pep talk :) Love the little charm pack, I’d like to be entered in your giveaway!

Molly said...

Hi--I posted a link to your giveaway on my blog. Thanks!

wyndesnow said...

I must admit, I do talk to myself. And the sad thing is I know people have probably heard me and wondered what I was doing. Oh well, glad I'm not alone.

Sara said...

I find the older I get the more I talk to myself..

ellen said...

I don't. :)

free indeed said...

I regularly talk to myself at home and only usually when I'm mad at myself for something stupid I did or annoyed with something. In public, I do but more under my breath, or after scoping out the immediate area to see if anyone is nearby. It's usually negative talk about me or about others...funny, I don't praise myself out loud....wonder what that says about me? Care to analyze?

imagrandma2five said...

Oh my gosh, yes! And sometimes I really enjoy the conversation! LOL!
Karen in Indiana

rachel griffith said...

Andi said...

I usually talk to myself in the car.
Not sure why.
Thanks for the giveawy.
Andi :-)

Sarah said...

I talk to myself a LOT. In stores, at home. Everywhere.
I was at a fabric store today and I was talking to myself about which fabrics I should buy. I am very bad about that...

Lindsay said...

I talk to myself all the time, including at the grocery store. I'm always on the lookout to hear somebody else doing it.

Paula L. said...

I do it all the time, and yes, people tend to think it's weird but I find it so useful to tidy up my ideas! :)
Thanks for the giveaway!

Patty said...

What a funny question! I do not talk to myself outloud but I have talked to myself in my mind.

Rosa said...

All the time! I give myself pep talks, list things out, back track events. Out loud! Sometimes I wonder if I am insane or if that is what keeps me sane.

Gina said...

Guilty. I talk to myself when I'm trying to work out a problem or figure out something. From the comments I'm glad I'm not alone. :)

Karen said...

Yes I do and way too much!
I think it comes from all those years talking to little ones. They grew up and moved on and I'm still talking!

Susan said...

Yes, I talk to myself all the time...usually I'm saying "Well, that was a dumb thing to do!"

Rachel said...

Yup...talk out loud to myself...I try to diguise it by talking to the dogs, but everybody knows they are not listening. :)

Jen said...

Yes, of course, I talk to myself. Usually my husband catches me when I'm cleaning out the fridge and talking to the food. Sounds absolutely crazy.

GloJoeSews said...

I don't but my ex used to do it all the time and it was hilarious! He'd be working on the car and trying to intimidate it, saying things like, "Okay, you want to be that way? Fine, we'll do it the hard way if you want." People would just walk by and stare at him--it was funny.

MandMStudio said...

Yes, sometimes I do:)

Allie said...

Yes I do! I homeschool, and if the boys catch me, I tell them I'm having a parent/teacher conference and boy, are they in trouble now. I especially talk to myself while sewing though.

Allie said...

And I blogged about you! Talked to myself while doing it, too. *snort*

Anne said...

I talk to myself all the time. especially at home or alone in the car. Sometimes, while in public, but I try to keep that under wraps.

Di said...

All the time! I have full conversations, lol.

jacquie said...

yup...sure do. my family is always asking me who i'm talking to. pretty generous of you to give this cute fabric away!

Anne said...

I blogged about you too!

Valerie said...

I was just tellin' myself that 'we' really need some of that Cherry Oh! fabric before summer runs out! 'We' want to make a cute table runner. Thanks a lot for the give away ... 'we' appreciate it!

Dr. Quiltmom said...

I walk into my quilting studio and greet my fabric friends out loud. Usually I don't speak out loud in public. I posted about your give away. Yeah, hope I win.

Andrea said...

oh good grief, do I ever...I find myself alone alot (with the kids) and sometimes it's the only way to think, you know?
I love this fabric line....

Fay said...

Not some much talking as singing and humming - I drive my kids crazy.

I would love to win the Cherry-oh

Rebecca said...

Yes, I do too - my kids have answered me on occasion :)

HobbyMommy said...

yes...I so talk to myself when trying to figure out new things especially when sewing or knitting... thanks for hosting a give away!

Janice said...

I think we all talk to ourselves.I can't say I ntalk out loud in public though.

Shannon Hillinger said...

I've always talked to myself. I'm really happy too have a non verbal baby right now, because I can talk to myself as much as I want, and I'm just being a good mother and exposing her to language.

Paige said...

I constantly talk to myself, especially when I'm trying to figure things out. Sometimes I end up unintentionally talking to myself cause after ten minutes of a discussion, my boyfriend will look at me and say,"What?".

Gorgeous fabric!

Paige said...

Oh and I posted on my blog also!

Allie said...

I HAVE to when I'm sewing. My kids think it's hilarious.

Regina said...

Yes, I do - and sometimes in different languages!

SewCalGal said...

Yes, I talk to myself all the time. I critique, I give advice, and I encourage myself, but most importantly I talk about opportunities and what I'd like to do if I had more time and more fabric!

Your give-away idea is quite cute.
It is fun just to talk to myself about this give-away.

Patchwork Penguin said...

Oh yeah!!!! All the time. Some of the things I discuss no one else would understand and other things no one else would want to know.

Of course, I am my own worst critic, so there are lots of things I don't discuss at all. I don't want to be criticized.

Hugs,

Nancy

Diane said...

A big YES, I talk to myself especially when I am trying out a new pattern. I have to read it out load and then talk about it to myself.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Yes, I do talk to myself, but that is because no one else will listen to me :-) No really I think we all talk to ourselves once in a while, don't you??

Love your giveaway. Thanks.

becca said...

oh do i ever!!

Wendy said...

I definitely talk to myself. The best moments are probably when I'm rehashing some conversation in my mind and then voice my response, and the kids are in the back seat and are like, "Who are you talking to?!" ...you crazy woman, I'm sure they're thinking.

Jackie said...

I believe I only talk to myself on occasion. But that might not be the whole truth!

Becky said...

All the freakin' time! I talk to myself, so does my mom, my brother, my hubbie, my 6 year old granddaughter and ALOT of the women in the quilting classes I take. LOL

Cherry-Oh is one of my favorites. *fingers crossed*

Rita said...

Yes, I do talk to myself and whats worse I enjoy it! :-/
I can think things through this way and I don't bother anyone else with my thoughts. Don't quit. You'll miss it. ;)

SandyQuilts said...

Of course I talk to myself. I have to have one person who always agrees with me. LOL

Bec Clarke said...

Being a stay at home mum with a 2yo and a 12 wk old it's the only sane converstaion I get during the day.

Tina said...

No, I don't talk to myself. But if I heard you talking to yourself in the grocery store, I would help you choose a pasta shape!

Cherry Possum said...

I've always talked ot myself, but for the last 5 1/2 months I've had a baby to talk to so that provides an alibi in public!

Cindy said...

I talk to myself all the time, and answer myself. I also am always humming or singing when I'm alone, did it once in the store and someone started singing along, so I'm really careful about that now.

calicodaisy said...

Yep, I'm a chatterer to myself and anyone else who will listen. Would love the fabric pack!

Cindy said...

Oh yes, and I put your giveaway on my blog too, while I was talking to myself about it.

Leah S said...

I'm not sure if I TALK to myself... but I sure mumble! ;)

Judi said...

I talk to myself all the time but mostly it's when I'm in my studio working. VBG Gotta get those pieces all in the right place, my granddaughter just picked that same charm pack the other day, She had to put it back tho, it would make a great little quilt for her.

Terriaw said...

How sweet of you! Yes, I talk to myself too, mostly in the car, but also while working in the backyard and also in my sewing room. Sometimes I make comments to myself while shopping too, which I hope no one notices! My husband talks to himself even more, and especially to the TV!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I guess you would have to call it talking to myself if I say something or call myself stupid when I make a huge boo boo when I'm sewing. Cute charm pack. Thanks Anina!

Robin said...

yes, i do! i do it mainly while shopping...for anything...i do in the grocery, in the quilt shop, in jcpenney! i often realize it and then look around to make sure no one heard me!

Thanks for the giveaway!

I read your blog all the time but believe this is the first time I've ever commented! Giveaways bring folks out of the woodwork! LOL! I don't think I've ever talked to myself, but I have gone over conversations in my head over and over! Thanks for the giveaway!

Unfortunately the older I get the more I find myself talking to myself.

I talk to my friend. She is always with me, but you can only see her if you are intelligent enough. Just like in the story of the Emperor's New Clothes! That's my story and I'm sticking with it :)

Maggie said...

I'm an only child, so I was often the only person around to talk to. I try not to do it in public but it happens.

Thank you for hosting this great giveaway

I talk to myself all the time. Sometimes I am the only one that will listen. Hee hee.

Lindsey said...

Well.....I like to refer to it as "talking to life"....it just helps to figure things out...if you know what I mean..tee hee!
Thanks for the fun blog and the giveaway...I'm so enjoying my rainbow Jane and think I finally have the hang of it.
Thanks,
Lindsey

I talk to myself all the time. Sometimes when I'm in the aisle at the grocery store and I need help someone will hear me and offer some. sad but true.

Valerie said...

I do talk to myself more now than ever. Weird. But I do. I would love to be in your give away!

Valerie said...

I am going to add your giveaway at the end of my Annie Doll Post. Thanks

I talk to myself regularly and often out loud. I find I do it more often when I'm angry or frustrated. I know it's really embarrassing when someone else hears you and asks "what?". "Oh, nothing" is the usual reply. I follow your blog on GR and mentioned your giveaway on my blog. Thanks for sharing...Kathy

I usually think to myself rather than say it aloud. Unfortunately, I say aloud what I think my kitty is thinking.
For example:
Oh, yes... I've got you now you feathery thing... yes, yes, no! come back! aha! I've got you again. now i will show you- wait, get back! it's time to be munched upon. oh yes, lots of muching... oh wait, quick bath time... oh, look, feathers!

Which is great fun, until you realize your roommate/boyfriend/someone else you didn't know was home has been standing behind you and is trying not to laugh.

yes but my mom told me not to answer myself!

Scottish Nanna said...

Being an only child I had no one to talk to but myself and boy did I get some good answers LOL.Nice give away.
Hugs Mary.

Georgia said...

I don't talk to myself - do talk to my sewing machine though, which is quite possible worse!

I talk to myself all the time when I'm by myself or at home (even if not by myself...hubby thinks I'm nuts), but not too often when I'm out where people might hear me. Of course, these days, maybe they just assume you have one of those blueray phones or whatever in your ear.

Alana - Knit Wit said...

Yup, I do it too, but I try to keep it at home. When I catch my self saying something to me in public, I get embarrassed and look around to see if anyone heard me!! They might think I'm cuckoo, you know:)

I talk to myself all the time. If it's in public, I'm usually just running through the things I have to do. If it's in private, I sometimes carry on "conversations" with imaginary people. Once when I was driving home from work (50 minutes at 11:00 at night) I "taught" a beginner quilting class.

R said...

OH yes I have talked to myself as long as I can remember!! In public I do without using my mouth...like reading to yourself :)

I love your blog!

bopeep said...

Prayers, Bo

Thimbleanna said...

Absolutely I talk to myself -- and I like it! (Although, it's a bit embarrassing sometimes!!!)

Ang said...

Yes, constantly.

Kathy said...

Yes!!! Just the other day I was walking out of the post office and realized I made a comment out loud and a man was staring at me. I was sooooo red faced. I don't talk to myself often but I tend to make a comment or two (especially if I have something on my mind).
Love your give-away! Good luck everyone!

bopeep said...

I talked about your giveaway and blog on my blog, I would love for you to come visit my blog.
Prayers, Bo

Michelle said...

I talk to myself all the time. I also sing (badly) to myself quite a lot. It's good when you've got little kids with you, people just assume you're talking to the kids (or at least I hope they do).

Sarah said...

I talk to myself when I'm trying to figure something out. I'm a student and often have a lot of data to get through so I will talk myself through it. It seems to work and if it makes sense out loud, it must be true :).

Christy said...

I talk to myself all the time. I find it helpful to talk to myself when I'm trying to make a decision. That way, I usually get what I really want! :)

Jess :) said...

Ohhh, I talk to myself daily. Who else will listen to my insane ramblings? I think my worst offense takes place in the car - I make sound effects as I drive. I say things like, "Vroom!" When people drive with me, sometimes I slip and my cover is blown.
