Help! I have been tagged by Alison - I have to reveal 6 weird things about myself and then try to find 6 more people to torture by tagging them, to reveal their weird things. Alison was curious about me revealing my 6 weird things because we were born about a week apart, same year even. We like alot of the same things vintage and decor-wise so she wondered if we had similar weird things about ourselves too. I can assure you, she is not as weird as I am! The trouble that I am having with this revelation project, is narrowing it down to only 6 weird things. Plus I have to edit myself so that it's not too weird, I don't want to scare people away!
#1. I hate anything close fitting across my stomach. It drives me crazy. Anything with an elastic waist gets pulled down below the belly button, even panties. Or else I cut the elastic. On my pants, the top button is always undone and if the shirt that I'm wearing is long enough, I usually have the zipper down. It's not that my clothing it too tight, it's the right size. I just don't like it tight on my belly.
#2. I like to eat everything in a bowl. With a spoon. A big spoon. I have a regular sized cereal bowl that I like to eat out of. For example, at Christmas, I have turkey, mashed potatoes, corn and stuffing, side by side in the bowl, not all mixed together. With gravy on top. And I eat it with a big spoon. The other night my dad made cream dried beef on toast with mashed potatoes, and he put it in my bowl for me. He knows I'm weird too.
#3. I am a hermit. I like being a hermit. A little social interaction is ok, but I don't go out to restaurants, or to parties or social gatherings. I just like being at home, doing my own thing, with my stuff all around me. When I got my part time job, everyone said it would be good for me to get out of the house a little bit and to see different people, I even thought so myself. It's ok, because we don't see alot of people in the office really. But I'd still rather be doing the work at my house.
#4. More on in the hermit lifestyle, I aspire to be an old spinster, living in a big old house alone, with a whole bunch of dogs. My house will be clean though, not like those houses that you see on the ASPCA shows on Animal Planet where the agents find people living with a bunch of animals and there's trash and crap allover. My house will be clean because I am very anti-germ (I love Lysol) and anti-smelly. But I love doggies and I want a bunch of them, all shapes and sizes. I'll load them in the car when I go to the store or to the bank or to the beach. I'll carry a few in my huge purse and maybe even push a few in a baby stroller. People will know me as the crazy old lady with all the very clean doggies.
#5. When I was 10, in 1977, I decided that if I ever had a baby boy, I would name him Luke. Can you guess why? Yep, that's why. I'm not having any children, but I'd still like to use the name Luke, maybe for one of those crazy old lady doggies.
#6. I'm addicted to Cheez-Its. I love them. I eat them all day. I take them to work with me. I keep a little zip lock bag of them next to my bed in case I wake up in the middle of night and need some Cheez-Its. I plan what day I'll do my food shopping based on how much Cheez-Its I have left. I can shake a box and guess how much longer that particular box will last me based on how many Cheez-Its are left in it.
OK, so there you go. Are those things weird enough? Are they too weird? I can assure you that none of my weirdness affects my ability to select and sell great vintage clothing!
Now, do I know 6 people who I can torture with the 6 Weird Things tag? Well, I think I'll try Amy at Petticoat Lane , Julie The Zaftig Goddess , ArtJunk
