Tag!! Apparently, I’m It!

Filed under: general wonderment, I totally have real life friends too

Alright, I’ve been tagged by Arlene so here goes!!

Rules: Each player of this game starts off with ten weird things, habits or little known facts about themselves. People who get tagged must write in a blog of their own ten weird things, habits or little known facts, as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you must choose six people to be tagged and list their names.

1. I can make my eyes vibrate.

2. I do not like ice cream.

3. When I was little, I thought the colors red and orange were evil. I have no idea why.

4. Even though I hate them, sometimes I eat the black jellybeans because they remind me of my granddad because he loved them and anytime I got jellybeans I’d always save the black ones and give them to him.

5. I HATE talking on the phone.

6. I can crack my neck really loud just by turning my head (no hands!), and most people think it’s disgusting (but I secretly like that they think that).

7. I could eat an entire bag of goldfish crackers by myself and not be full (but I really try not to).

8. I really hate some of the “classic” books that, as an aspiring writer, I should really like and honestly don’t get why they’re such a big deal.

9. I’m an expert “hider”. I was always the one who was never found during a game of “hide and seek” and I have hidden things so well that they weren’t found for years (and no, no puppies!!!).

10. I hate to be touched by anyone I don’t know. This old woman at the grocery store patted my arm once and the friend I was with said that it looked like all the blood drained out of my face. I have no idea what I thought she would do to me, but it freaked me out.

So there you have it. Hopefully that was interesting and hopefully the people I tag won’t go “who are you?”! 😉

That’s right! I’m taggin’ you! Jamie (Hyman), Beth, Shell, Susan, and everyone else I can think of has already played. So there ya’ go! Hopefully y’all will participate. This was fun! 🙂 Thanks Arlene!

I crack my neck that way too!! I always get dirty looks from John because it’s not good to do that 🙂
You make your eyes vibrate?? I feel a video coming on!!
Uck, when I was pregnant with my son, for some reason random people in stores would touch my stomach! Made me honestly want to hit them!

Thanks for playing 🙂

Comment by Arlene

Ack! That’s one of my main fears about ever being pregnant! You see it happen all the time, and I just can’t see how those strangers don’t think the pregnant person will mind?! That’s insane! I would definitely punch someone. Or wear a shirt that says “If you wanna keep that hand, keep it away from my belly!”. LOL

And yup. Vibrate. It’s very weird and I’ve googled my butt off and can’t find out what it’s called. If I had a video camera I’d take a video. I don’t think still shots would be very helpful though. Hee!

I actually did this almost a year ago, except it was only 6 weird things. Here’s a link to that post:

I’ll try to finish it off for you, though:
7. I used to be on a jump-rope team. We were awesome.
8. I feel that I can never have enough coats/jackets, but the only one I really wear is my high school letter jacket.
9. I can move my baby toe independently of the others. It waves.
10. I hate generic plastic blinds like the ones in my apartment. I think they’re hideous.

Comment by Beth

Dude, you can make your eyes vibrate?! Does it give you a headache? I’m with Arlene. Please post a video!

Comment by Jenni

jenni – yup! And no, it doesn’t give me headaches or anything. It’s really strange, when I do it, everything I see vibrates back and forth really quickly. I’ll have to try and find someone with a video camera that can film me doing that so that I can post it here.

OK…that eye thing is the wierdest yet!

I’ve actually done this meme…twice already. Maybe I can write wierd things about someone else…like the man I live with, he’s pretty wierd! bwwwaahahahaaaa!

Comment by susan

susan – LOL! That should be the next one! 10 weird things about the people we live with! 😉

Comment by barnmouse

Oh geez…someone else tagged me on this one too. I’m still trying to decide how much freaky stuff I really want to disclose. 🙂
