WOOHOO! Tagged, baby!

I've been tagged! I've been tagged! Woohoo, I've been tagged!

Okay, so I'm just a tad bit excited, in case you couldn't tell. The last time I was tagged, it was a spiritual thing (I mean not like it moved me, but it consisted of spiritual questions) and I was an emotional basketcase, so there was no way on God's green one I was going to be able to do that! I was, luckily, relieved of my commitment to share. So even though this one isn't the first, it's the first I've been able to participate in, and I'm excited! Lisa over at Colors Outside the Lines has tagged me to tell 6 weird/exotic/downright strange things about me. Check out her Etsy Shop, and if anyone feels compelled to buy me this while you're there, I'd be forever indebted to you!!

Rules, because everything has them:

1. Link to the person that tagged you. (See above)
2. Post the rules on your blog. (Right here)
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself. (Check it out below)
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs. (More checkin' it out below)
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website. (Will do as soon as I figure out 6 people).

So. I actually had to wait a day or so on this, because (at least to me), I think I'm the normal one and y'all are a little wacked out! (Uhm, just kidding...really, I am).

1. I have double jointed knees and fingers. I can totally gross people out by touching my first finger and thumb on my left hand back to my wrist. I can also sit on the floor and lift my heels off the ground, but my knees (or the backs of them, I guess, so you don't think I really am a freakshow) are still touching the ground. I can get my heels about 6 inches off the ground.

2. I can watch the same movie over and over (and over...and over) again until I tire of it. I just got a copy of Working Girl a couple days ago, and I think I've watched it 4 times already.

3. My eyes move back and forth when I'm looking at someone. This one is from Big Boss Man. He claims it looks odd when I look directly at him because I move my eyes from one eye to the other. I think it's called making eye contact, but apparently, it make me weird.

4. I'm very anal about some things. I have to have the clothes in my closet hanging a certain way on the hanger, or the clothes in my dresser folded a certain way. Towels are the same way, and dishes in the dishwasher must go in certain places. Other things, not so much (dirty clothes are often left on the floor, for example).

5. I have an earring fetish. I love dangly earrings (although I have stopped wearing them to work, as they jingle on the phone that's usually pressed up to my ear). Turquoise is my favorite. Oh, and for a two-in-one freaky oddity, I don't wear gold. Only sterling silver. My engagement ring is gold (my late mother-in-law's anniversary ring), and it's the only thing I'll wear that's not silver (I don't wear it often because it's gotten snagged and bent quite a few times at work).

6. I've become a middle-of-the-day-er. I used to be quite the night owl, staying up until BBM would get home from work at 2am, sometimes later than that. Then I became unable to stay up that late, and started going to bed around midnight, sometimes 11pm. Now, I find it hard to stay up past 10pm, and sometimes by 9pm I'm ready to hit the sack. Through all of this, I've never gotten up any earlier or later...never become a morning person.

Well, there you have it. 6 completely useless weird pieces of information about moi. Aren't you glad you visited the blog today? Goodness, now I have to choose others. How will I ever do that?? 6 people...6 people...lemme think...

The Park Wife

I love Upstate

Ms. Elizabeth

Barefoot Gardener

Ness (although she's totally excused if she wants, because she just celebrated her hundredth post with 100 things about her!)

And because I really don't know if he'll do it or not, last but not least:

Big Boss Man

Whew! I did it. And in the meantime, I found a couple broken links on my blog. Whew again!

You did it!! I'm so proud of you for getting the list up! Very interesting stuff, too. I've had fun looking over your choices to be tagged. Let's hope they do it too.

Thanks for linking to me and my little shop!

Thank you so much for the bye! I don't think I could think of anything else about me, weird or otherwise. But if you do another meme, I'm your girl! I like doing them. Just not this one. These boys and dachsies have hidden all my spoons today. Take care. We are going to the St. Patrick's Day parade tomorrow. If you're up to it, call me and we'll meet up at Kiener Plaza. I'll be with my daughter as Uncle Roger is keeping the boys with him at home since the weather is supposed to be yukky.

And I just posted the latest quilt pics just for you!

The squares are 8 inches. I am using a 4 inch round embroidery hoop and I have to move it a couple of times. I suck at estimating things. Enjoy your visit with your dad!

Most definitely we will BBQ. I might have to have fish though. ;)

And ice cream can still save the world. But I might have to change it to a basket of fruit for the Random Thought. At least for a few more weeks. LOL ;)
