10 Weird Things About Me

I was tagged by Holly. I have to tag 10 people: Tara, Jenster, Marg, Angry Woman (from Random Ramblings), Aikoinuzuka, Road Called Life, ag, EAP, Fiona, & Meaganomics.

1. I absolutely hate the phone & almost never answer unless the caller starts to leave a message. Even then I always think, "Nah. I'll catch up with them later."

2. I name all of our fish. Frick, Frack, Dino, Saladeen, Cake, Imperial, Sol, Lune, Hector, Caesar, Aragorn & Achilles (those last 4 are Bettas & thus the warrior names). Plus 5 Tetras who are impossible to differentiate, and thus remain nameless.

3. I collect Tasha Tudor & Jan Brett children's books.

4. I've a large collection of souvenir tourist spoons- most given to me by other travelers since we're hermits. Furthest away spoon- New Zealand. Closest- Skyline Drive (part of Shenandoah National Park).

5. I HATE spiders

6. Homemade macaroni & cheese requires catsup & worcestershire sauce.

7. Diet Dr. Pepper & coffee are my favorites, but not at the same time.

8. I talk to the computer. Also- my cell phone & books I"m reading.

9. I love electronica, house & other club music.

10. I want to learn how to make soap & lotions.

5) *shudder*

8) Pepsi and Coffee for me..but DP comes in second behind Pepsi.

9) Me too, all the time. lol

9. - I have no idea what language you are speaking ;)

5. I was fine with them until I learned my best friend was phobic - throw up/sobbing kind of phobia. Since I relate to people with phobias I picked this one up - not as bad as her but I get the willies when they used to not bother me.

1. Absolutely - not only that I've never turned on instant messaging because when I'm on the computer it's 'me' time and I don't want to have someone barge in while I'm surfing.

Why are all of Holly's friends raving mad ?


(You're right about the Worcestershire Sauce though!).

LOL guys- glad to know I'm not aloone in my weirdnesses!

Merlin- I've no idea. Maybe we send out invisible waves recognizable only by like minds?

Jenster said...

I can understand all of them except #6. LOL Of course, I've never tried it so I'm not gonna judge. :o)

And I'm off to work on mine, now. Thanks. Thanks a lot. LOL

5. DITTO!!!! I was always afraid of spiders but my phobia became worse when we moved to NJ. The different variety of spiders really freaked me out. When you're from NYC, the only ones you see are those harmless brown colored spiders that you find in any home or apartment. You can deal with the phobia but now everything you find is a spider.

Jenster- I would never have tried it except one of my kids dared me to & now I'm hooked.

AW- Yeah- spiders are just horrible. All of the ones in my house. Outside ones are ok as long they aren't ON me. lol
