blog meme....i've been tagged!!


me Posted by Picasa

I've never been tagged to do a meme before! :) I'm so excited! This one comes from my ultra talented friend Joy

idiosyncracy: structural or behavioral characteristic peculiar to an individual or group. write down five of your idiosyncracies. then, if you wish, tag five people. so here we go:

a. I type with my fingers all the time (not at a keyboard, just against my legs, on a table, in the air, especially when i'm trying to fall asleep. I also spell in my head non-stop. Sometimes at work, i'm so busy trying to spell each sentence I hear, that I have to ask a person to repeat themselves because I wasn't really listening. Strange.

b. when i clean the house, i always always always have to start by making the bed. I can't ever clean anything if my bed is not made. This drives Dustin crazy. I also can't prepare food (not even a pb and j) if the kitchen is dirty. I have to load the dishwasher and wipe down counters first.

c. I hate hair in my bath tub. I must scrub the tub completely before bathing, and as soon as i see a hair floating towards me I step around it and SPEED through my shower so I can get out. It really grosses me out.

d. I hate the feeling of my fingers and toes touching eachother, I am always wiggling my toes and hate wearing shoes that aren't flip flops. I also wiggle my nose constantly (because it itches) I have been doing this since I was a little girl.

e. My elbows are double jointed. I can curl my tongue (even two curls) I have two cowlicks in the back of my head and when i was little I looked like i had horns sticking up b/c my hair would poke up in two spots. It still does that occasionally in the mornings.

I'm going to tag: shabbychic
kris
stephen
carrie
peasfulgal
:) btw, some people don't care for these meme tag things, so if i tagged you and you don't want to do it...no problem!

Mindi,
I know exactly what you are talking about with the 'making the bed' thing. I'm the same awy. It just seems to make the room come together more or something. Maybe its just a crazy thing...

I type and spell all the time too. Watching TV, conversations with people...fingers constantly moving...funny. I also have to make my bed before I can sort laundry, dust...you name it. And before I clean the cat box etc. I have to put the clothes away in the laundry room and make space mentally. Weird.
