This Is A Complement, Right?

Yesterday I received this award from Melisa @ Suburban Scrawl. I'm going to take this as a special honor. Of Course it comes attached to a meme. It almost feels like that email in your in-box titled "You have won a $500 gift card" only to find out you have to complete a 2 hour survey and sign up for at least 3 of the special offers from their sponsors. Well here goes. Seven weird things about me:

  1. I wake up by 5am. I don't have to, I just do. I don't even want to. I just wake up and that's it. So I start my day peaceful and quiet with coffee and my favorite blogs.
  2. I do not eat mayonnaise (I may have used this one before, so what). I find it way too disgusting. Even thinking about it too long will make me start to gag.
  3. I do not eat mashed potatoes. Yes, this trait seems inhuman to most. I hate them and I gag when I try to eat them. I want to like them. Especially with shredded cheese and bacon sprinkled on top. They look good, that is until the cross over these teeth.
  4. I have a sock hang-up. My feet are always cold and I have to wear very warm, cozy, thick and seamless socks. My favorite are lambs wool, cold weather extreme hiking socks. The kind that you buy at an outdoorsman store. I wear them every day usually from October through April.
  5. I view my Birthday(and yours too) like a national holiday. I even get my hair done and wear a tiara all day(I may have used this before too).
  6. I hate clothes shopping. I hate trying stuff on. It's just a pain in my...... , needless to say I am not an expensive woman to keep.
  7. I love to watch TV shows about anything weird. Paranormal, ghosts, Dennis Kucinich, aliens, UFO's, conspiracy theories. It's all just so.....weird and neat and creepy.
Now I am supposed to pass this on to 7 others. But instead of twisting your arm into a meme I am going to let you just take it if you want it and link back to me so I can read your weird list too!

Funny list... I do #1 and #4. Can't sleep past 5:30 (now 4:30) and cannot keep my feet anywhere near warm enough.

Gonna test that gag reflex: I LOVE mayo. Sometimes I eat it on a spoon; like peanut butter. I also LOVE mashed potatos; especially with a big dollop of MAYO on top. Yum! ;)

Tom said...

Yay! I like weird shows and warm socks! But I love mashed taters and mayonnaise both, so... yeah. I'll have to think up some good weirdnesses I have. hmmmm...

Chris H said...

Yep, you are weird, in a nice way of course! I love mashed spuds, and mayo... lol

I hate socks and avoid them whenever possible. But I am definitely getting me a tiara! And how can you not like mashed potatoes. They are one of the major food groups, right between chocolate and beer!

Melisa said...

Huh. I didn't even see that you posted this until just now, Lucy! LOL

I have the same thing with socks. And I'm wearing my b-day tiara right now! :)

Congrats on the award!

1. At 5am, I don't even know my name.
2. You have used the mayonnaise one before. No problem. It still makes me gag too.
3. Mashed Potatoes are their own food group. I'd rather die then never eat them again.
4. I too avoid sock. I typically get the mail year round barefoot. Please remember where I live and the answer is still yes when the month is defined as December - March.
5. I treat everyones birthday as fun. I've forgotten my own.
6. Clothes shopping. Blech. Take me to the gadget store any day.
7. I used to be a huge fan of the X-Files. I think I had my fill.

Had I had the energy to cut and paste this to my blog, consider yourselves tagged over here. I'm too tired to move it over to the home of the Midwest Geek.
