5 weird things on Friday night


Tdharma tagged me with this because I'm clear across the country from her. Guess she feels safe that I won't come looking for her to get revenge for making me come up with a list of 5 weird habits/things about me.

Here's the rules:

The player of this game starts with "5 weird things/habits about yourself ". In the end you need to choose 5 people to be tagged and list their names. The people who get tagged need to write a blog about their 5 weird things/habits, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. Don't forget to leave your victim a comment that says "you're tagged!" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

So here's my list:

1. I talk to myself. A lot. I try really hard not to do it when someone's in earshot, but I'm sure I've been caught. I work with a lady that talks to herself in public; we all think she's nuts.

2. My first kiss was in the 5th grade, in front of the whole class.

3. I always read the last page of a novel first.

4. I could easily be a vegetarian, but I have a hard time giving up the really bad stuff, like bologna, keilbasi, salami, or meatballs.

5. I had shingles when I was 22. Shingles is mostly an illness of the elderly.

That's the best I could come up with. My friends might say otherwise. I'm not sure who to inflict this on, but will start with Susan because she's a good sport, Diva Kitty's Mom because it'll be fun to hear about the weird habits of her bunnies, maybe Bunnygirl and Tidbit would like to play along too, and how about you, Michelle - you don't have a blog - but you can add your weird list in the comments on this post. A 5th tag I'll leave up to anyone who is just dying to share their *dirty laundry* ;-)

Feel free to ignore my tag, please.

No fair having a blog and not telling anyone!

Michelle Lewis said...

Okay, so I already gave #1 - I started a blog and never told anyone!

Weird toes, talking to yourself....
I am definitely not as weird as I thought.
:-)

None of that is wierd. We talk to ourselves to keep on track of what we happen to be doing. Shows you are organized.
I always read that last chapter fisrt too. That way I can take my time and enjoy the book. Talking to animals, I always have, and they love it. Our fur persons friends talk back too.
When you talk to them, try visualizing at the same time.

LauraHinNJ said...

Thanks for including your list, Michelle. I hate shoes too. My feet look like crap from being barefoot all the time, but at least they don't hurt!

Still want that link!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, silverlight. I agree that animals do like to hear us talk to them.

Michelle's toe-thing sounds like a charlie-horse, doesn't it? Ouch!

Michelle Lewis said...

LOL. I realized I had 2 *feet* weirds on my list - I swear I don't have a foot fetish :)))

Well, Laura, I could give you the link but then I would have to kill you!! Seriously, I made 1 entry, and never kept it up. I want to though so perhaps, due to peer pressure, I shall work on entry #2 this weekend and send you the link.

Though I must warn you, the things I have to say aren't all that exciting LOL.

LauraHinNJ said...

So can I share the link, Michelle? Need a little peer pressure to keep posting?

;-)

Michelle said...

Yes, you may share :) What's the point if no one else looks!

TDharma said...

Good job, Laura. I fun read as I return from my short vacation.

Hey - I got shingles in my early 20s as well! Sometimes still do! Of course, now I'm at a more decent age in which to get shingles....

How about pork roll? The only time I've ever seen it is in NJ.

I want you to do a whole post on that kiss! Sounds like it could have a very interesting back story....

thanks for being a good sport and playing along. You are not weird at all--except for reading the last page thingy -- now THAT is weird!

LauraHinNJ said...

tdharma: you mean I can get shingles again? Please no. It's stress related, right? I had just started my first *real* job and was getting married in a few months - nerve city!

Love pork roll too, only I call it by it's proper name Taylor Ham. Know it that way?

That kiss? It's between me and 14 other 5th graders! Seriously, we were doing a skit and I was playing his mother - how interesting could the backstory be?

;-)

Thanks for tagging me - it was fun!

I thought I was the only one who read the last page of a novel first. Glad to know I'm not alone.
