Weird Schmeird Etc

Leslee is so bossy. She wants me to post weird things about myself. Well first off, I am not weird. Y'all are. I could post a whole bunch more weird things about you than I could about normal little ole me, but here goes:

THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the '6 weird things about you.' People who get tagged need to write a blog post 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.

1. I recently started listening to classic rock on STAR 103 . When I started to like it i thought to myself, "I am finally grown up." In my mind, only older adults liked that station.....and now that I am about to turn 38, I finally feel like an adult. (I bet Joe is so relieved.)

2. I peel the top off of pizza and eat it first, then the crust.

3. I sleep with ear plugs.

4. I find a scent I like and wear it all the time until I get tired of it, or find something I like better. Currently I am still loving warm vanilla sugar but would also like to try some Pink Sugar from here. If Joe found something he liked I would wear that too, but his nose gets itchy when it smells perfume. (I will also add here that I love a good smelling man!)

5. I blush VERY easily. My face always gives away my emotions, no matter how hard I try to hide them.

6. I have only been drinking coffee for one year. (and I love it!....another sign I am grown up.)

Bonus weirdness:
7. I have freckles between my toes.

8. I can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue.

9. I am pretty smart and intuitive about certain things (don't tell Joe) It just gets lost in this dingy shoulda-been-a blonde head though.

10. I hate those mail-in cards in magazines and rip them all out when i read the magazine.

Tagging: BandGirl, Carly-Fries, Ted, ANP, and Nerdine

Today I will go to the annual Sister's Christmas Lunch with my mother, her sisters (7 total) and all my girl cousins. We will eat and have a gift exchange at Aunt Ruth's . It might get nasty. They like to play Dirty Santa and I don't. I think I posted about that last year. I love to see everyone and visit and laugh at how old they have gotten! haha

My gift is pretty cute: a snowman mug with a matching stirring spoon, some "dash/smidgen/pinch" measuring spoons, hot chocolate, mini flavored coffees and creamer.....all things I love. :o) Is it wrong to take things you would like? I usually do, and have even ended up with my own gift (and promptly returned it for the cash)

Here are all my aunts: Betty, Ruth, Iva, Mary, Thelma & Velma (my mom) and Sandra

Did I tell you that Carly won the MRMC "Holiday" card contest? Her design will be featured on the card sent out by my employer. She won a $25 gift card from Walmart. As soon as I receive our copies, I will post a photo.

I have more to post but will save something for later........


  1. i'm first!!!

  2. aren't thelma and velma from The Simpsons?
    great post by the way!! love your weirdness...its your "ness". thats what its all about...your ness. keep it up

    thats funny that you returned your own gift for the cash. i might have done that too...heehee

  3. You are not weird. Listening to Classic Rock absolutely validates you. ;o) Plus you can sitemeter your own blog. That is HUGE!! hehe..

  4. Susie first is best and you are IT!

    Emma: you know it SISTAH!! I get lots of compliments on the new look! Thanks again!!

  5. sorry I have no weird things.

    huh - who am I kidding - of course I have! let's see - I have done this meme before, but I'll see if I can do six new weird things I haven't told before...

    1. I usually wear a cap backwards when I'm at home - at least when cleaning, painting - stuff like that. I hate getting hair in my face and wear the cap to keep it away.

    2. I can't go to sleep without listening to the radio. So I put on the timer for half an hour, and put out the lights and go to sleep. I'm rarely still awake to hear the radio shut off. If I'm still awake I have to do it all over again.

    3. I sometimes will sit in a pub on my own and have a half pint of beer and play my nintendo. Some pubs have free internet connection, and I can surf the net on my little nintendo DS. (I AM Nerdino after all!!)

    4. I have a thing for languages. Scottish for example. But also Spanish and Italian can get me totally ga ga - especially in songs.

    5. there are four things that are in my handbag at any given time: money/card, dayplanner, mp3 player and mobile phone. I'm lost if one of them are forgotten at home. most of the time I also have my digital camera and nintendo with me. just in case.

    6. I'm a nail biter. Not in the traditional way, though - I have long nails sort of. But I like to nibble at them, bite them but not chew them. I never bite off pieces. I just like to nibble at them when I'm nervous or if I'm thinking hard.

  6. I love the idea of that Sisters' Christmas lunch! That is a wonderful tradition.

  7. Joe: you better catch up. you were tagged too you know.

    Nerdine: you are Nerdino! you are very techno savvy. is it a super power? i think guys like girls who wear baseball caps, especially backwards. i wear one ocassionally, but usually only if there is no chance i will be going anywhere else. (Hat Hair is NOT pretty on me)

    JBlu: i am so mad at that other fake jublu! ~The Sisters used to have a get together every month, but with everyone's busy schedules, it got too difficult so now they do it about every other month or so. It is a lot of fun and a great day with out the kids so we can visit uninterrupted.

  8. Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't
    quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for
    different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
    a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
    I made over $900 last month having fun!
    make extra money now
