6 Weird Things About Me......

I've been tagged by Redneck Nerdboy, AGAIN. But he's so cute, I don't mind......

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.


1. I don't like potato salad. You know, the staple at summer picnics, the classic American picnic food. Not me. Never have, never will. Uck.

2. I read the same series of books over, at least once a year. It's "The Mitford Series" by Jan Karon and begins with AT HOME IN MITFORD. I used to read all of "The Chronicles of Narnia" over every year (there are 7 of them), or I would read all of "The Lord of the Rings" series, way before the movies were out. I also read LITTLE WOMEN every year.

3. I can't watch anyone brush his/her teeth. It totally grosses me out. I have to look away while "helping" my 6 yr. old.

4. I have never owned a female toy. You know, the kind that requires batteries. Yes, I've seen them, I've played with one once or twice, but I have never had a personal "friend". But I DID put my name into a drawing from a co-worker's "toy" party, so maybe I'll get lucky. (in more ways than one, hee, hee) I'll let you know. That will be a post in and of itself! (grin)

5. I drove my ex-husband's tractor 3 times and totally loved it. I would do it again in a heartbeat. It was fun. I even like just riding on a tractor.

6. I listen to the soundtrack from "A Charlie Brown Christmas" all year long. I love that Vince Guaraldi jazz.

"Hark the Herald Angels Sing...."

I tag Sayre, Captain Corky, Birdman 33, Sunshine, RWA, Amy, Dazed, Mia (although she didn't play along last time), Finding Heart, Heels, Island Girl, Stephanie, Kristi, KaraMia, Kentucky Girl, Nancy, Jazzy, Princess, Steve Novak, Hale, and my sweetie, Baron. And yes, I know that's way more than 6, but I want to see how many people I can get to do it~
Have fun! Let's see how weird you all are!

ADDENDUM: The next time I think it's so cute to tag 20 people for a silly little meme, remind me that it takes a hell of a long time to insert all those links AND visit everyone to tell them they're tagged! Serves me right!

Hmmm... I did a 5 weird things about me last month. And I know that there are more than 5 weird things....

I also do not eat potato salad. Used to love it, but a severe bout of food poisoning killed any desire for potato salad or barbecue. No "female toys" either...

Hmmm....from what I have heard from a few women friends of mine, you don't know what you're missing without the 'friendship' of one of those 'female toys'.

Alright. I am 100% with you on the Potato salad thing...

But no one...anywhere...should get so much pleasure from riding a tractor.

Wait...was it because of the vibrations?

Is there something you aren't telling? ;)

I'm going to play your tag game later tonight.

6 weird things huh?

1. I don't eat most all condiments and salad dressings. I'll eat whipped cream and marshmallow cream. Maybe some ketchup.

2. Curiously enough I eat gizzards, sardines, oysters and anchovies. These things gross out Hoosiergirl.

3. I have horded toys for 18 years. Now I finally have a need to sell them and I'm glad they're there.

4. I collect toy cars and can find ones I don't have with uncanny instinct.

5. I have a tough time sitting still. I must work to make something somewhere better or fixed. Relaxing is tough.

6. When I drive somewhere I refuse to overshoot and come back for any reason. There's no way going past something can be more efficient.

The blue baron.

Sayre - Okay, you're excused. One "weird things" every 6 months is plenty.

Anonymous - Well, maybe I'll win and then I'll have a "toy".

Steve - I never thought about the vibration angle, but I WILL tell you driving a tractor is a power trip.

Corky - Yay! You're going to play!

Baron - Your aversion to condiments is a curiousity, but not too weird. Yes, the strange foods gross me out. That oyster casserole...that just wasn't right.
#5 - oh yeah, I KNEW that! I didn't know #6, but it is in keeping with your personality. Good answers. Thanks for playing.

Aw, this will take some effort, but I'll give it a shot soon.

You don't need a female toy when you have a tractor!

Just sayin'...

KaraMia said...

I played. :)
A little late-but at least I did it.:)

DT said...

Mine will be up this afternoon.

I've never understood the toy thing. I have a very nice live one that I call "husband," but that's it.

I will definitely get to this... after my meeting with my ceo tomorrow, k? It's taking up all of my brainpower... which is probably one weird thing about me :)
