A Meme in the Nick of Time

John over at Misadventures of a Middle Aged Dad tagged me for this meme just in time for me to run out of blog ideas.

This was a challenge because the topic is Six Weird Things About Me. I’m a pretty conventional person, so I won’t blame you if you nod off around number 3.


Six Weird Things About Me

  1. I can touch my tongue to the tip of my nose. Don’t ask me to do it, please. It’s not very attractive.
  2. (Thinking, thinking…) Whenever I brush my teeth the “Really Doesn’t Matter” song from The Pirates of Penzance plays in my head.
  3. (Hmmm…) I will go to great lengths not to talk on the phone. I was so happy e-mail was invented.
  4. I hate black licorice, but my favorite candy is Good ‘n’ Plenty. (Oh, give me a break, people. I’m trying the best I can. Only two more to go. WAKE UP!)
  5. I hate, hate, hate going to the hairstylist. That’s why my hair is long. I hate it long, but I hate going to the stylist more.
  6. I don’t like to run air conditioning except for the few extremely hot weeks in the middle of summer. I like to feel the seasons.

I’ll tag whoever wants to be tagged.

Editor’s note: We are full aware that #4 on the list is actually an irony, not a weirdness. So we offer this additional piece of weirdness: Sisiggy every now and then talks about herself in the third person, adopting an alter ego to make the statement convincing.

No I don’t.

Yes she does.

Heh. I might try this.

Well, you had me until number 6. I start running the air-conditioning the last week of April and keep it running until the first week of October. I like it arctic in here! Relatedly, I keep the heat turned way down in the winter, to the point where my husband is reduced to walking around inside the apartment in a parka to make a point.

I loved number 2. I'm just grateful I don't know that song, so I won't have to join you. :)

No wonder you call so infrequently,I thought it was something I said!!! :-))) or doesn't Zsa Zsa like you talking to me? Is she afraid I might make you bring her back??? :-)))

Zsa Zsa's now convinced we're holding you prisoner in that little black box (the phone).

Thanks for the vision with the tongue *not*

Besides that and the fact that you hate licorice (prob because you havent tasted swedish licorice), you sounds perfectly normal insane.

Uhum, you know that its only healthy people that is willing to admit that they are crazy - that's why I'm nagging about me being crazy all the time ;-)

When I brush MY teeth, I hear Mike Evin's new song (coming soon to an EP near you) "I only want to Brush my teeth with you"...

Of course, I picture him singing it to me... but now I've said too much.
