6 Weird Things

Some time back I was tagged by Miki to do a meme of 6 weird things about me. Well, I have racked my brain trying to come up with 6 and it was hard!! I guess I'm pretty normal, but then some people that know me well might be able to pick out 6 weird things real quick!! Anyway, here they are.

1. I do not like my back uncovered. I don't even like wearing clothing that has a low back, even an inch or so. I feel like the wind is hitting my neck and I don't like that. I also have to have cover on me at night, even in the hottest weather, and even if it's just a sheet.

2. I am a shaker. That is.....shaking my legs. I guess it's a nervous habit but I just shake my leg, or legs, automatically without even thinking about it. I even do it in bed.

3. When I eat bananas I like to eat them from the side sometimes instead of in the "normal" way. Also, once you have taken a bite then if you take your tongue and stick right down in the middle of the banana it might split in 4 exact pieces. Try it sometime! Then you can be officially weird too!

4. I have some obsessive compulsive habits. This is not as bad as it used to be thankfully! I used to check the water to make sure it was off, and double check the stove to make sure it was off, and triple check the door to make sure it was locked before going to bed! Now I'll check the door a couple of times and that's it. I'm getting better!!

5. I like to eat mayo on hotdogs instead of mustard. I CAN eat them with mustard but mayo is by far better.

6. My fingers are double jointed. That's the only part of my body that is. Here are some photos of my hands. Also my finger as you can see in the picture is what I get when I stick it straight up ......or out. You can see it's definitely not straight!! Creepy, huh?

Hi Rachel -- I already had my mind made up. You were going to be weird in a nice way. Don't let anybody tell you are nice and weird.
You can see I'm reading all my blog buds tonight and aren't going to post anything.

I'm glad about your lipoma not being cancerous. Adi has two of those under her right front leg. Her doc says if they grow or bother her he will remove them.

Well, the only weird one to me are your fingers, and in truth, that's not too weird! (lol)...I can really get the "mayo" on a hot dog thing....I bet it is delicious!
The Banana thing is hilarious...I am going to try that and I'll get back to you!
Fun, Rachel...!

My kids did the banana trick with their finger. I never tried it but I do have some bananas int he kitchen....
About your double jointed fingers. I would imagine that could come in handy at times.

I do the banana thing occasionally. And my fingers are the same way, but not so much these days with my arthritis.

I just can't do the mayo on hotdogs, though. Gotta be mustard for me.

Thanks for your kind words on my blog. Hopefully I'll feel like posting something on Saturday. :-)

You are not weird you are interesting and unique just like every one else. *smile
I will have to try the banana thing.
The double joint thing amazes me. Just think of the pranks you could pull.

Have a wonderful day!

Okay, I give up, you win. You are WEIRD. I wasn't sure about that until I saw the pic you put up representing your lump. I'm glad you are okay and just weird.

Trying to get caught up on my reading this morning. First of all just read your previous post and I'm happy it was nothing serious. On a side note, I could have lived without the picture - I'm eating breakfast here!
I have to have my shoulder cover at night or I cannot sleep. Even a sheet but there has to be something on my shoulders.
I will try number three - sometime.

Okay, Hunnybunny eats mayo on his hotdogs, so that's not too weird.
But that double jointed thing? Now that is truly unusual.

I have one finger on my right hand that is and everytime I show my husband, he freaks out.

Ya'll staying warm? My neighbors still have unmelted snow in their yard!
