tagged

James over at Burnettiquette tagged me with the following meme.

Here are the rules: Each player of this game starts with the "6 Weird Things about You." People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says 'you are tagged' in their comments and tell them to read your blog!"

Okay first of all,,,,,,six? just six? I could do six without even thinking but I suppose that will be enough. Some may consider some of them wierd, super wierd, or maybe not at all but here goes.

-I have an irrational fear of snakes. Not your common garden variety normal fear, but major MAJOR kind. I live in Florida "never more than 110 miles from the beach" as some old song says. When I go to the beach I don't worry about Jaws no matter how many times I have seen the movie or newsclippings about shark attacks. However, let something brush up against my foot and I WILL walk on water back to the shore, with visions of snakes dancing in my irrational mind. I used to visit my oldest brother's house every summer when I was a kid. One time I walked around the side of the house and saw a black snake. In my mind that snake is STILL chasing me. He had that house until about 2 years ago and I even rented it from him for about 3 years. Since that ripe young age of 8 or nine I never EVER went on THAT side of the house again. People have often said something along the lines of 'it's just a garden snake it won't hurt you',,,,,,being older I at least have to agree with them. But that doesn't eliminate the very real possibility of me hurting myself to get away from them.

-I am painfully, excruciatingly shy....... I would have thought I would have grown out of this by now, but at 38 it is still going quite strong.

food:

-,I mix my foods like nobody else I know. It all started with mashed potatoes and corn which is the ONLY way to eat it and went down hill from there.

-I absolutely refuse to touch my food with my hands for the most part(ie;pushing it onto the fork using my thumb).......I read a book when I was young about a kid doing this and having a tree grow out of his thumb.........I haven't done so since. Eating fried chicken, pizza, burgers and such noooooo problem but you would have to torture me to make me push something onto a fork with my thumb nowadays(and since I was like 6)

-I can cook........Not all that wierd till you consider I am a male, STRAIGHT male, with(until veryyyyyy recently) ZERO training in doing so. It isn't that I LIKE to cook per se but I DO like to eat and the food wasn't cooking itself.

-One of my very favorite foods even though I make my own spagetti sauce, grill a mean steak, pot roast (when I remember the most important step at least), and countless other dishes is a simple 50 cent banquet pot pie. LOVE em!

- I will almost wig out if I sit at a table that has just been wiped down but still wet. Drives me bonkerrrrrrrrrrrrs. Short drive I know, I know.

-apparently counting to six is NOT my strong suit.

Okay now to tag 6 peeps, Gypsy soul, Michael, Roadchick, Alyndabear, Fringes, Mist

consider yourselves tagged.

Mind if I post my things here? My blog is a meme-free zone.

1. I floss my teeth several times a day. Even while driving.

2. I like to eat red and purple foods. It can be challenging in a restaurant.

3. I can hear shoes talking to me. I talk back to them.

4. I host an imaginary talk show in my car. I interview celebrities and other people of note when I am driving (after I floss, of course).

5. I love Alka-Seltzer cold & sinus. I have been known to drink it when I don't have a cold.

6. I have embellished every doorknob in my house. Some are bejewelled, some are collaged, some are beaded.

See, I'm really not that weird.

BD, I'm normal! Kidding. Your six items aren't so weird. There was a time I wouldn't eat PBJ unless I stirred the PB and J together into a sort of slurry first.

Good God, BD. How am I supposed to pass the tag on when 3 of my 5 regulars (Counting you) are on my list??? Jeepers. I have to go random blogging today before I can even play.

I've never done a meme in my entire blogging life. Ever. It's a matter of principle now. (not really, I'm just too lazy).
