6 Weird Things About Me

Egads, I've been tagged!

Carole has tagged me (and several other unsuspecting souls) for the 6 Weird Things About Me meme.

THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the 6 weird things about you. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says you are tagged in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

Hmmm. One of the things I've learned in this world is that weird is in the eye of the beholder. Sometimes we do things that seem to make perfect sense to us, but others find a bit odd. So, I will share some of my quirks with you here.

1. I alphabetize my spices.

This seems to me like a reasonable thing to do, but I have been told that it's the hallmark of the neat freak. Well, if you can count your spices with one hand, that may be true, but I have 54 jars to keep track of.

2. I don't consume caffeine.

My doctor thinks this is a reasonable thing for everyone to do, but you tell that to the grocer.

3. The space that my craft supplies occupies is 10 times larger than the space my wardrobe occupies.

This is a common problem among crafters not shared by the rest of the population.

4. I like to wear wacky earrings.

I once overheard a friend of one of the teenagers, "What is your mom wearing on her ears, fishing lures?"

5. I make wheezing and squeaking sounds when I laugh really hard.

This may be genetic.

6. I actually like anchovies, but dislike peppermint.

Now, the 6 people I've chosen to tag with this meme:

1. Kelli at AfricanKelli
2. Finny at Finny Knits
3. Michelle at Lighthouse Designs
4. Elisabeth at Curls and Purls NYC
5. Missy at Knit Wit
6. Joleen at Love, Joleen

Interesting! I organize spices too, but more on the basis of what type of dish they are used in, or by their colour, haha.

Thanks for the compliments on my completed crocheted necklace, and for the tag! Should be fun.

Ta da! I am weird and I posted to prove it.

Happy Friday :)

I do the wheezing and squeaking when I laugh hard too. I don't know where it comes from though.
