Weird-i-ness

Like I said, I’ve been tagged. I think I’ve only been tagged by one person ever before, and my answers were so horrible and boring that no one ever wanted to hear me list anything ever again. But, because I’ve been asked (and am always looking for things to write about besides “Ooh! I have a cute baby toddler! See! Cute=content! Really!), I will try.

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.

SIX WEIRD THINGS ABOUT ME:

1. Umm. Nope. Can’t tell you about that one.

2. Not that one, either.

3. Ditto.

Oh, okay. I’ll do it for real. Except, I think if you’ve read my 100 things you already know these. Except I don’t keep a link to my 100 things. So yay! We’ll pretend this is 100% brand spankin’ new content. Yay! again.

1. I have to put on my right shoe first. Every time. When I try on shoes at a store where the clerk is supposed to “help” you with the shoes and they hand me the left shoe first? I have to ask for the right. Otherwise I just feel wrong all day. Dirty-like, or something.

2. I have an irrational hatred of the phrase “Local Artist.” To me, if you have to play up the fact that they are local, they must not be very good. Please never refer to me that way. I will cry.

3. It really, really bugs me when Cole’s socks don’t match his outfit. Even when he’s just going to bed. I change his socks to match his pj’s.

4. When I was a teenager I wondered if I was a lesbian (I am SO not) because I thought that certain girls were pretty. I hadn’t quite learned the difference between aesthetic attractiveness and sexual attraction. There was no experimentation needed for me to come to the conclusion I finally did. Stop thinking about Catholic school-girl pillow fights! Stop it! I’m not even Catholic!!

5. (By the way, this is harder than I thought it would be. Maybe I’m not that weird.) I have conversations in my head. Sometimes I’ll say parts of them out loud accidentally. I usually “talk” with my hands. Quite animatedly. I’m sure I look like a crazy person. I’ve done speeches about politics, the environment, accepting awards, divorcing my husband, family members dying. I’ve taught whole classes. I tell people off like CRAZY. I’m very dramatic.

6. I’d rather be fully naked than wearing just socks. Or just a bra. Maybe that’s not so weird- I mean, after the undies- what the hell!

So there you go. Right now I could probably come up with a couple more, but they really aren’t that weird. Well, maybe they just sound normal to me because I’m the one who does them. Huh. I dunno.

I’m not going to tag anyone 1) because I don’t want to force anyone into doing this or feeling bad that they haven’t and, more importantly, 2) I have no friends. But if you are desperate for material like I am and you feel like sharing, please drop me a line so that I can come over and read your deep dark squiggly secrets because I’m totally a voyeur like that. Show me somethin’ baby.

    You know, I’d venture to guess a few of those are pretty common. Or maybe I’m just weird too ;-)

    You aren’t weird. I did this last week on my blog. I too talk with my hands and have whole conversations in my head. I think maybe that is why I think that I told someone something, but really I didn’t. I don’t think that is weird though because I do it too.
