Tag, I'm It


I have been tagged by a cyber- friend and am now obligated (It's OK, Lisa) to share 7 interesting/ weird things about myself.  Look for your name at the bottom and see if you too have been tagged.  You might even see the "tagged" button in your latest blog's comment box...

1. I clean my ears with a Q-tip twice every single day.  Without fail.  Did I mention TWICE?

2. When colors are barely off from matching (like similar, but not quite, greens) I get a bit nauseated.

3.  I can juggle.

4.  I am constantly singing, either out loud or in my head.  My mother-in-law pointed this out to me when G.O. and I were first married.  In the shower I really belt it out, whether I am the only one in the house or not.  I know on Spring days when the windows are open I have entertained my elderly neighbors. 

5.  I am not really fond of little people.  I know how unPC that is, but once I even left my pre-schoolers for a few minutes while we were at the circus in LA.  I just needed a little bit of air once the midget clowns came out...gulp.

6.  My hiccups are incredibly loud and my whole family laughs when I get them.

7.  I get very scared driving over bridges.  That sick-in-the pit-of-my-stomach kind of feeling.  ugh.  

So now my deep dark secrets have been revealed.  I hope I am still liked and respected in spite of them.  Will the following people please open up your closets and let it all out?  Thank you and don't worry... these weaknesses will only make us appear more human, right?

Nice knowing you a little more :-) These are pretty interesting things about you. Wow, the cleaning the ears 2x a day with Q tips --- you fascinate me :-)

LOL I know, but what can I say... I like clean ears! I am now adding you to the list! TAG!

Maybe if you watch "Little People, Big World" you'll overcome your feelings about little people? It worked for me? :)

The qtip thing is hilarious.

Thanks for doing this!! Scared crossing bridges? Maybe there's some special therapy for that?

I'm a loud hiccuper, too. The kids giggle, but my husband says, "Can't you just keep your mouth closed?" To which I respond, "Well, when I'm in the middle of a sentence and I have no idea that one is coming, no I can't. And plus they hurt when you close your mouth." Sheesh. Is that really so hard to understand?

I hope one day we can meet each other and maybe go to a party or something and both get hiccups at the same time. We'd be awesome.

Hahaha! The Little People thing is one of my favorite quirks of yours ever! Remember that day when they had Love Boat re-runs on Nickelodeon and we called you to turn it on because it was a midget convention?!?

You are AWESOME!

Oh, and I clean my ears with q-tips every day too (despite my FIL's warnings against it) and I HUM constantly...a quirk my entire family loves to mock!

Technical difficulty. Sorry about the deleted comment. All better now.

I'm a once a day Q-tipper, but TWICE? That is just NUTS! If I had known this about you sooner...well...I just don't know.

As it is, you've got me hooked. Fun post. :)

Thanks for tagging me! I feel flattered to be picked. I hope that doesn't make me weird :-) But your blog is one of my favorites so it's kind of an honor. And that probably makes me sound like a geeky Kazzy-groupie but it's true. I did this tag, a couple of posts ago, does that count? :-)

Big fans of Q-tips in this house!

My sneezes (and those of my daughter) are embarrassingly loud!
