You're It!

Okay - everyone (myself included) can blame Dagny for this one. She tagged me. (Don't worry, it didn't hurt.) So, get ready for some interesting reading...

Rules: Each player of this game starts with the 6 weird things/habits about you. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird habits/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.

This is hard for me. As most of you know, I'm pretty darned weird...now, how do I narrow it down to only 6 things? I tried... (those of you who know me well, feel free to add to the list, just don't make me cry!)

  1. I only wear makeup on special occasions. I refused to wear it in jr high or high school, and just never got into the habit. Also, back then I would get offended when people told me I'd look so pretty if I just wore a little makeup. (Isn't that a backhanded compliment? Or maybe just telling me nicely that I could use a little help in the facial area? I was insulted and therefore more resistant to the suggestion.) That being said, I do feel more confident about myself when I have makeup on (or have a very rare good hair day...maybe that's a whole different section for the weirdness).
  2. I actually like lima beans, but I rarely eat them.
  3. I have never been drunk or high. I am a bit proud of this, and think it's actually an accomplishment.
  4. I am friendly, loud at times, and have been told that I am funny and entertaining. However, I am painfully shy around people I don't know (especially attractive men). Some people I know don't believe this, but it is definitely true.
  5. I had my first real boyfriend at age 29. I am not proud of this. See #4.
  6. I am fascinated by the paranormal, even though it scares the crap out of me. This may tie in to my frequent bouts of deja vu, and a few instances where I've had premonitory dreams. (No, I am not referring to the deja vu here. The dreams were distinct and separate from experiences I consider to be deja vu, and in some cases so real that I'd mentioned them to others before they came true. Then I reminded those people of that after it happened. Creepy!) Then again, it may just be part of my special weirdness...

Okay, now I will be tagging these lucky people: Jill, Kristin, Joie, Caitlin, Kyle (that's right - you two are tagged separately! Ha!), Fluffycat

I desperately wanted to wear make-up during jr. high and high school. My mother would tell me, "But you're pretty without it." Finally in college I started wearing it daily. When I started working, I discovered that was 15 extra minutes of sleep I could have so I started to only wear makeup when I go out. Now my mom says, "Why don't you have makeup on? I mean you're pretty without it but even more so with it." *sigh* Can't win.

ok, we are thrilled to be tagged :) Here is the thing.... does it have to be weird or can we reframe it and say "unique?"
I just think the word "weird' has somewhat of a negative vibe. I can only think of one really weird thing and you all already know it. It is my obsession w/ Hollywood stars. I'm not trying to change the "assignment" but I just would like your opinion. Cait!

Tami said...

Cait - weird can be unique to some. Go for it!

Kerri said...

Oh good. That means that those of us NOT tagged don't have to do it. Hehehehe. J/K. Because GOD FORBID you don't have anything but a myspace page. :) Good Lord, I'm TOO "unique". I gotta think about this... :-D

Kristin said...

Ok I did it. Gave me something to do. I dont know that I listed weird things. If someone wants to share my weird things and tell me what they are, I will add them.

That's funny...I got high and drunk when I was 15 and was pretty darn proud of it. Still, am. I mean, I dont brag about it or anything like that, but I do know it was a really fun time and I dont regret any of it. It was all part of the high school charm and experience.

And one weird thing about me? I love French onion soup, but take out the slices of onion as I eat it.

kerri said...

Ok, I wrote it. On my myspace blog...

Joie said...

I will begin thinking about my weirdness. There are so many options to choose from. This may be difficult!!

And dang it Kerri, I was going to tag you since Tami didn't. Well fine then, since you're doing it anyway, consider yourself already tagged by me.
Hee-hee
Five more to go....

ok, we finally posted our list :)

Kristin said...

So I did mine on my blog and dont know anyone with a blog so tagged them and emailed them and such and not a single reply from them.

For some reason this is hard for me to do, but I'm working on it!
