i’m weird & i know it.

October 12, 2011

So I think I am weird.

Or rather I have some weird quirks.

I obviously totally thought my quirks were normal until I married Keith and he didn’t do any of the following things.

On second thought, maybe I’m totally normal and Keith is the weird one.

I like that so much better.

Anyway, here are my weird [or totally normal] quirks:

  • Whenever I wake up from sleeping no matter what time it is I always try to guess the time on the clock before looking at it.
  • Going right along with that, if I wake up in the middle of the night needing to go the bathroom if it is past 3:00am I just roll over and go back to sleep but anything under 3:00am and I get up to go. [I should mention that I have a bladder of steel]
  • I am a half eater. Like 99% of the time I only eat half of whatever the item is and I leave the other half in the box/package. This used to drive my brother crazy when we were growing up. He would reach into the package and find 1/2 a poptart or 1/2 a cereal bar. He would get so mad. Obviously I didn’t outgrow it.
  • I can chew gum and food at the same time, not mix the two, and then swallow the food and not the gum. Such a talent! Ha!
  • One of my favorite things is raw zucchini and ketchup. Don’t ask. I recognize that this one is weird.
  • I have a very active imagination and if I can’t fall asleep at night I will run a full made-up movie in my head (starring myself) until I eventually nod off.
  • I have a weird thing about anyone touching my neck. I can’t handle it so don’t try.
  • I actually hate pumpkin. Blog blasphemy I know. But I went throw a pumpkin stage a few years ago when I would eat it almost every night for dessert mixed with Kashi GoLean Crunch. This lasted for about a year. I can’t look at either of those products now without turning green.

I’ll stop myself here before I lose all the friends I have. Ha!

Tell me one really weird quirk about yourself. I want to laugh today!

    I don’t like to sleep with a top sheet. This drives Jason crazy and he always tries to tuck me in bed with the sheet on top of me. I’ve learned to use it because he likes to, but my preference is still without one!

    Umm I sleep with a teddy bear and use it like a body pillow?

    I would love to be a half-eater. And that gum thing is super impressive!

    This is how I eat pizza: 1. I eat the toppings 2. I eat the cheese. 3. I scrape the sauce off. 4. I scrape the dough-y part of the crust off 5. I eat the bottom shell of the crust.

    WEIRDO!! 🙂

      HAHA! Seriously that is how I used to eat it in elementary school. I don’t know what changed!

    Pumpkin hater here too. Unless it’s in pumpkin bread or pie, and then I can handle it. Combine it with sugar and I am good to go.

    I totally make up stories in my head too! Glad to know I’m not alone on that one. 🙂

    I have a crazy neck thing too! In high school, it was a joke for people to come up and try to touch my neck because I would freak out like they were trying to kill me! The thought of a hand coming toward my neck makes me feel like I could just explode out of my body! Maybe it’s the anticipation of being tickled? I have no idea!

    I don’t like people touching my ears. Sure, the neck is ok… but the ears? Back off, dude!

    Food weirdo: Ready? Miracle Whip toast… yep sounds gross. I like it.

    Oh, I hate pumpkin too… never liked it… don’t trust it.

    This is hilarious. I have about a million, but I guess people touching my hair is one. It seriously makes me bonkers. Another: using the word “bonkers”.

    Oh I love this, and you!

    I sing all day long. Not like REAL songs, but just nonsense that I make up. And I do it in a really high pitched voice that sound like a mouse.

    I hate bed sheets and have to sleep with the comforter – even if it is a thousand degrees, I want a comforter!

    I’m very good at knowing what time it is without a clock. I’m also good at guessing people’s weights

    When I come home from anywhere (work, errands, etc) I have to straighten up the kitchen counters
