6 Weird Things About Me (0nly 6?)

        

I was tagged by Shelly to list six weird things about me at least a week ago.  Well, my aches and pain were actually me getting sick with ear infections...oh joy.  I'm taking Augmentin and feeling way better so I'm giving it a shot.  6?  I say only 6?  Because, according to my children and others, I'm totally weird...lol.  Do I care?  Nah, it's part of my charm.  And BTW...my vacation over Columbus day...welp this is it, being home sick before Columbus day.

1.  I'm stealing this from Shelly because I've done this like forever and people always comment on it.....I read newspapers and magazines from rear to front....ALWAYS.  I don't have a clue why but I do.

2.  I sleep most every night on the couch and have for a couple of years.  As soon as I lay in bed, I'm wide awake.  I can zonk right out on the couch so why fight it?

3.  When I buy new clothes, I usually forget to take off a lot of the tags.  I don't even notice it until someone points it out to me.  Call me Minnie Pearl.  Yeah...very weird or lazy or a combination of both.

4.  I don't like chocolate stuff at all...no chocolate cake, ice cream, cookies, brownies, doughnuts, etc.  The only chocolate I eat is good, and I mean darned good, boxed chocolate. 

5.  I'm terrified of thunder, lightning and fireworks.  Absolutely phobic about it.  I hate, hate fireworks and plug my ears like a baby.  I do the same with thunder.  Lightning flips me out more and more as I get older.  I couldn't drive in a thunderstorm if I had to now.

6.  And mice....I cannot stand these critters in my house.  I darned near croaked last fall when Mocha, my cat killed one in the basement, and then guarded it for the day after I left for work.  I almost threw up having to scoop it up and get rid of it.  I won't go up in the attic now because we had a squirrel or a mouse last spring in it.  I haven't investigated it enough to find out just what it was.

Now, if I asked my kids about this, I could put down a dozen more.  But I'm not.  I sing in the car at the top of my lungs.  I sing and dance like a fool around the house.  If any of you ever saw the show Bam on MTV, I talk the Don Vito when I get super excited (upset excited).  Grizzly, my dog, and Mocha, my cat, "talk" constantly.  (With the help of Joey and me, so my kid is wierd also.)  Griz and Mocha sing duets to Christmas carols....on and on I could go. (The only problem with the talking dog and cat is they usually forget when Megan has friends over so, her friends think I'm sooooo wierd.)

LOL...back to work I go for one day tomorrow.  I still need to take Tues off to take Grizzly to the vets.  I'm feeling better so I'm hoping this weekend is not a total bust.  I have to get my night of dancing in.

Oh, and I did get my magnets.  My camera batteries died so are in the charger.  I got pics and will put them up in the next entry.  Thanks to Betty, my secret magnet person.  Mine are going out tomorrow to my secret person.  Be patient...I left one at work and couldn't get it all week.  I have the mailer and everything ready to go.....

I'm not tagging anyone for this as it appears most have done it.  Have a wonderful evening!  BTW:  It appears the alerts are acting up again, surprise, surprise?

Chris

Mice scare the crap out of me!  I believe some of my first entries in my journal were about a mighty mouse we had and couldn't seem to catch.  Have a good night.

Mice and snakes don't bother me but years ago I had a large spider in my house by the bathroom and rode my bike to my mothers in the middle of the night to spend the night at her spiderless home.

I love learning more about you Chris! :)  I love to sing, and do it all the time too!  In the car, in the house!  I sing to my dog, who just looks at me like I'm crazy.. as do my kids!  

Yes, alerts are acting up.. again.  I wrote an entry yesterday, and could tell by my comments that people weren't getting my alerts.

Glad you're feeling better! :)

Hugs and love

You're not very weird.  I wouldn't be scared anyway.  But I'm probably weirder than all of you all out here in J-Land.  I was tagged to do this and have been lazy and just haven't done it.  I need to get a batterie charger.  Thanks for the reminder!  Hope your ear infection stops hurting and goes away soon.  Very pretty graphic there too.

valphish said...

I thought alerts were acting up.  Only 3 people came to my last post.  I get 15 or 20.  I thought no one loved me this week.  LOL  So, we have a few things in common, hon.  I HATE thunderstorms.  They make me jump through the roof!  There have been times when I have slept on the couch instead of my bed for months at a time.  Don't know why I do this and I also read magazines backwards.  I wonder if this has something to do with our brains?  LOL  Now the chocolate thing... well I eat ANYTHING chocolate, although I prefer the better chocolate.  Thanks for sending me your links, Chris.  Hope you pay me a visit again soon.  You have a lovely journal here!  I will be back!  Hugs, Val xox

Hi Chris, You're no weirder than me! Lol! I don't like chocolat at all , especially chocolate flavour stuff like ice cream and cake,ugh! I always have to read the end of a book first too otherwise I can't get into it! I think we're all weird or mad! I hope you feel better for the Columbus Day holiday. Jeannette xx  

pippa1116 said...

for some strange reason, i have not been getting alerts from you in a while!  I just happened to be looking at your latest tag and suddenly i thought,"hey, has she not been doing entries in her OTHER journal?"  lol.  anyway, I love these breast cancer awareness graphics.  Especially the ones that can fit in the side bar.  That way i can keep it up year 'round.  Glad you are feeling better!

lanurseprn said...

You DON"T like chocolate?? You need help Chris!!  LOL!  
Enjoyed these.

queenb8261 said...

Did I comment on this already? I am so behind on alerts.  LOL I can't believe you don't care for any kind of chocolate. That is rare. I also flip through magazines from the back.  I sleep on the couch a LOT too.  I am the opposite about thunderstorms and fireworks.  The louder and brighter the better. I talk to the animals too.  They listen.  Jake is the smartest dog I've ever had.
Have a great week.
