I've been tagged by Erin over at Pupsickle with this meme.

Rules : 1) Write a few weird/strange/quirky things about yourself and post it in both my comments here and on your blog (if you do memes). 2) Leave a comment on their blog telling them they've been tagged.

My weird/strange/quirky things:

  • I need a lot of sleep. I funtion best if I sleep 10 hours or more in a 24 hour period. My ideal day would include 10 hours of sleep at night, and two-three hours of napping.
  • I'm scared of big Ants. Not REALLY scared, but I don't like to handle them or anything. It has to do with a childhood trauma.
  • I get two whiskers on my chin. One comes in black, the other white. I have to pluck them every three weeks or so.
  • Feet gross me out. And I hate to go bare foot.
  • I'm not really shy, but sometimes when I talk in a group, or if I'm talking and random people start looking at me, I get all embarrased and start to sweat this "nervous sweat" that is really nasty.
  • I swear I can FEEL germs on my hands. I always have to wash my hands before I eat or drink or handle my kid or anything she eats or drinks if I can "feel" the germs.
Mr. Fab, you're tagged. And Tricia. And Candice. And umm... YOU!

You have pet hairs! (I do too)

The germ paranoia thing's a good one, too. Isn't that feeling you get when you can't wash your hands but you know you need to wash your hands the worst? *cringes* It used to happen to me all the time when I waitressed.

I don't know if this is weird or not, but Mrs. Fab says it is. When I clean my ears with cotton swabs I always have to do both ears simultaneously. I can't do one first and then the other. I just can't.

I employ a somewhat gross, yet 100% effective method for curing myself of hiccups. If holding my breath and/or drinking water doesn't stop then, then I'll stick my finger down my throat and make myself throw up. Works like a charm every time.

At work, at my desk, I haven't picked up the receiver on the phone in probably six months. I always put on my headphones when I place or receive calls, even if I know it's going to only by a 20 second exchange. I can't help it.

When I get food from a fast food restaurant like McDonalds or Wendy's, I have to eat the fries before I eat the sandwich. I never touch the sandwich until all my fries are gone. Yet, at a sit down restaurant, I'll nibble on the fries throughout the meal.

I don't like to carry my wallet. The only time I will carry it is when I know I have to use my credit card to pay for a meal. 99.8% of the time I keep it in my car. I don't like the feel of it in my pocket.

I still think you are weirder than me :)

Tricia said...

1. I am learning how not to be a perfectionist. Sounds weird, but I get more done that way.

2. I am not a prompt cheque-casher. Sometimes I carry them around with me for weeks (luckily my pay is direct-deposit!)

3. I don't really like 'pop' - but sometimes I'll drink a bit of gingerale.

4. I have had the same email address for 10 years (hotmail.) I was in highschool when I got it.

5. I love to compost and recycle, and I'm jealous of a friend that has a worm compost in her house.

6. I don't like to follow the rules. That means I'm not going to 'tag' anyone, but if you see this meme and you want to do it, consider it an unwritten 'tag.'

Tricia said...

I'm the opposite of you. I get by on about 4 hours sleep, too much sleep and I feel like a zombie. :)

Candice said...

1.. I have to stir my tea like 50 times, i go in a one way circle then the other way circle and then i do the "wave" in the tea. because i have to have my sugar completly disolved.

2..i dont like to be pointed at..childhood thing.. just DONT do it.

3..i like sleeping on the right hand side.

4.. alex cannot sleep beside me if his toe nails are long.. toe nails that are long are disgusting!

5..i have different patches of money everywhere in the apartment.

6. When im talking to someone i have to look at them in the eyes, not when their back is turned. because i hate that non contact.

Erin~Yeah, that feeling sucks. I like to carry wipes with me.

Mr. Fab~nope, you're weirder!

Tricia 1.~I didn't follow the rule about posting in Erin's comments.

Tricia 2.~Hello, I've seen you around in others' comments, but have never checked you out. I'll come see you soon!

Candice~I sleep on the right side too.
