Five Weird Things About Me (Tagged)

1. I won't eat anything on my plate if it's touched anything else on my plate. It all has to be kept seperate. And I finish one thing before I move on to the next.

2. I hate Dr. Seuss. With a passion normally reserved for serial killers.

3. Whenever I'm reading a book, I must put my right thumb under one page of it and keep it there. When I turn the page, I put my thumb under the next page. It drives my sister insane. I just like the way the paper feels. (Hey, these are supposed to be weird...)

4. I am often convinced that inanimate objects with faces have "feelings". For example, I'll convince myself that the lone teddy bear tossed on the floor by my daughters is really, really sad that he's not in the toy bin with the rest of the animals, and will have to put him there or risk feeling incredibly guilty until I move it.

5. My whole fear of midgets thing. I really should seek therapy...

(Oh, and I realize I didn't tag anyone else. But I think everyone else has already been tagged. So um, feel free to tag yourself. Hell, I "tag" myself every other day or so. LMAO!)

When I'm picking up the boys' stuffed animals, I have to reunite all the family groups. The baby elephant has to go with his mommy, the baby turtles have to go back inside their mommy's shell, Clifford has to sit next to Cleo, Tbone and Mac, and so on... If I don't do it that way, it bothers me.

I totally feel that way about the animals. But it's about special blankets or pillows or sweatshirts too.

damn you stole one of mine... ;)

Alien said...

LOL Melissa. OK, I suck. I don't always keep their families together. :(

Emily said...

Dude...I have Dr. Seuss quoted in my iV profile...LOL

I also have this weird need to keep toys and stuffed animals together...if I ever have to throw away a toy with a face I have to put them face down and take the trash right away because I feel like its pleading me to save it...

Janet said...

Melissa, I keep the families together! I never thought about it until you wrote it but, I do that too:-)

You are weird! I knew it!! ;)

Reading habit, how did that get started? And why would it annoy your sister? Does she like to watch you read?

I kind of agree with you on the food not touching each other. I will still eat it, but I def. prefer things to be in their own section.

LOL SM! I don't know how my weird paper/page/thumb thing got started. I have just ALWAYS done it. And it annoys my sister because I've done it all my life and she's watched me. See, it applies to almost all paper products. Napkins... paper placemats... paper tablecloths... loose sheets of paper, etc. I honestly can't explain it. I told you I was weird.

#4 - I have the same thing! I step bravely from the shadows and stand along side you, my friend! (I have always been that way but I think Toy Story sealed it for me though)

You didnt officially tag me but in an "I tag everyone" way so I will have to go do this... {wipes away cobwebs from blog}
