My new friend Kelly at Song For Whoever has tagged me with a meme. It's basically a list of things about myself (hence the name "meme"). Since I love to talk about myself (obviously), let's see what today's subject is.

"6 UN-spectacular things about me"

Wow, the list is SO LONG that I'm going to have trouble with this one. Hmmm. Let's review the rules first.

1. Link the person who tagged you - Check!
2. Mention the rules on your blog - Check!
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours - Check!
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them - Check!
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged - Check!

Now for the hard part. Six unspectacular things about me.

#1: I don't like borrowing things from people. It's because, when I was five years old, I "borrowed" a Snickers bar from a local grocery store. When my grandma discovered it, she made me go back to the store and apologize to the store manager. At that age, I didn't really differentiate between borrowing and stealing. Now, it makes my heart race whenever I borrow things from people.

#2: I like calling people by nicknames. Whether is be a shortened version of their real name or something random.

#3: One of my favorite meals as a kid was rice & gravy mixed up with cottage cheese. If you think it SOUNDS disgusting, you should see it in person. It might just make you retch. But it was yummy! If I wouldn't have to eat the gravy all by myself, I would still make this meal.

#4: I still enjoy episodes of Saved by the Bell. And yes, I'm about to turn 33. So what.

#5: When I eat toast, I eat the crust all the way around the bread first, and then eat the inside. I've always done this, as far back as I can remember.

#6: I'm VERY particular about how my laundry is folded. I once had a meltdown because of the way that hubby was folding cloth diapers. (Yes, I cloth diapered my girls)

So there are some very UN-spectacular things about me...Now for my tags:

1~Angela at Hello Dahrlin'. I'm REALLY interested to see what she would list.

2~ Shannon at Welcome to the Nuthouse. She's having blogger-block, so this should give her at least one post. Ha ha.

3~ Lula! at Lulaville. She's HILARIOUS and a southern girl, which I love.

4~ Scary Mommy because I recently discovered that she just moved away from my town not too long ago. And I think she's super cool.

5~ Jennifer at Crazy, Magic, Sometimes Hectic, Beautiful Life. She & I think alike on many occasions.

6~ Carrie at Candid Carrie. I heart Carrie. And while I think she's going to be hard pressed to come up with a list, I'd like to see her try. :-)

Well Angie, I just gave up my last seven secrets in a post yesterday. Let me see what else I have for you and I'll put it over here.

** 1 I have an addictive personality. If I chew gum, I will chew and chew until the entire pack is gone.

** 2 I gave up chocolate three weeks ago and haven't lost any weight since. I thought by now I would have lost eighty pounds.

** 3 My favorite book of all time is Go Dog Go and I always give it as a baby gift along with some type of dog baby blanket and baby toy shaped like a puppy.

** 4 When I was a kid I had an evil parakeet named Cupid. It was the first time I ever wished that something I knew would hurry up and die.

** 5 All my pets have human names unless they are too dedicated to the rescue names they came with.

** 6 This house is the first house I have ever owned that has a front porch and I like to decorate it and I always clean it just like it was another room of the home.

** 7 I have way too many pens and post it notes. It is like I collect them and I spend way too much time trying to decide which post it note to use with which pen (for more information see addictive personality mentioned above).

There you go, now my entire twisted life is here for all of you to view.

I bet that cottage cheese meal is pretty good...hmmmm...lunch?

Brittany said...

I am a nickname caller too! It's probably why people think I'm crazy, but I think it's endearing.

Ronnica said...

#3 made me laugh. I'm glad I don't have to see it! I've always loved the taste of chocolate pudding on salad (from my days of eating off the salad bar at Pizza Hut). I don't really ever do it, but if there is pudding at a salad bar, I definitely "accidently" let it touch my salad!

Lula! said...

I have to think on this for a while...I'll get back to you, promise!

Kat said...

You and my mom would get along famously. She does all our laundry. Oh, and yes, I know we're spoiled! But, if it's not folded correctly, it's dirty. It made her nuts to let me do laundry when she had knee replacement surgery. I have no idea how to operate my own front loading washer. Okay...I'll stop now before you hit me...

#6: I'm VERY particular about how my laundry is folded. I once had a meltdown because of the way that hubby was folding cloth diapers. (Yes, I cloth diapered my girls)

My first big fight with my soon to be ex was over the folding of my shirts. In the end we just agreed to fold our own clothes seperately.

Rhea said...

Ok, you're officially bizarre! You eat your crust first? You eat rice and gravy with cottage cheese?! Girlfriend, that's weird! But, you know what, weird is ok, because we all have weird things. :o)

Scary Mommy said...

Um, rice and gravy with cottage cheese? Not sure we can hang out anymore.

Just kidding, and thank you for passing it on!!! I love your blog & some of the others you mentioned are my favs too. I'll have to stop by the rest! I'm going to sit on this for a bit to come up with some good answers!


Shannon said...

So, what's my nickname?

And thanks for tagging me... I'm thinking of my answers...

Kelly said...

So, do you still eat the rice, gravy, cottage cheese concoction?

Shannon said...

Jennifer said...
