"Tag, You're It! " from MySpace

This is from a MySpace comment Penny left me. I've known Penny since middle school. Penny was the tallest girl in athletics, and I seemed to be the shortest.

The rules of the game are: Once you've been tagged, you have to write a blog with 6 weird facts/things/habits about yourself. Finish by choosing 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.

So here are my six wierd things about me. I'm sure there are more, but we'll just stick to six.

1) I have an awful habit of leaving cabinet doors open. I don't know why. Maybe it's because when I lived at home in Anson there weren't any doors on the cabinets, so I never got used to closing them.

2) I shed hair like crazy in the shower. I will take it out of the drain, but I don't throw it away for a few days. I just let it pile up on a shelf until it's a huge mass. It's a wonder I'm not completely bald.

3) I cannot go to the gym without my iPod. I'd rather postpone my workout and wait until it charges up. Which right now, takes forever, since it won't hold a charge very long because it's so old.

4) Humans are supposed to have 32 teeth. I have 24. My teeth are huge. My uncle from Mexico used to call me "Terror de los Elotes", which translates to "Terror of the Corn." And the 5 yr old son of a guy I went out with once told me, "You have really big teeth." 4 teeth were pulled to make room for my crooked teeth when I was getting braces. The other 4 were my wisdom teeth, pulled out in 2001. I am missing 25% of my teeth.

5) I have an uncanny ability to remember dates and numbers. I'm awful at math, but I've been known to recall what I had for dinner 5 months ago on a certain date. I also like to find patterns in numbers.

6) I am a grammar freak most of the time. It irks me when people don't know how to distinguish between "your" and "you're". Or "loose" and "lose". I could go on and on, but it will just raise my blood pressure.

I'm tagging April, Casey, Christi, Lewis, Susan, and Heather.

Those of you not on MySpace, feel free to leave a comment on here telling me what you think is weird about me.

P.S. I turned 31 on March 12. But I swear I don't look any older. I'll post about my birthday later.

"Terror of the Corn?" That's awesome. I'll have to make up some stuff like that for my kiddos.

You crack me up. ;)

Be well.

I don't think any of that is weird. Maybe because 5 of those 6 are habits of mine. If you read one of my old blogs I talk about shedding hair. When I got my wisdom teeth out, the surgeon asked if I was part horse. I love correcting people's grammar. Last, you should look at my kitchen right now.
