Meme - 6 Weird Things About Me

tagged by Edge

"According to the rules... Each player of this game starts with the "6 Weird Things about You". People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 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!"

1. Since August of 1997 there has been less than a cumulative year that I was not either pregnant or nursing or both. Actually about 10 months. Whew.

2. You do the math, but what brings my log of pregnancy and lactating hours up the most is the fact that I nursed Mashuga until he was almost 3 1/2. Now, I don't think that's so weird anymore. But I sure used to and many of you might.

3. Despite a tremendous aversion to contention, I thrive on a healthy, respectful debate. Ethos, Pathos, Logos... Ah... And I LOVE argumentative/persuasive writing. Honestly, give me an issue to debate and I'll be giddy. I don't even care if I'm right or not, I just enjoy that socratic "search for truth".

4. I fingerspell subconsciously. Whatever other people are saying, what I'm thinking... I can't remember how many people have seen me fingerspelling and asked whether or not I know sign language. Well, no. I just fingerspell. Usually without knowing I'm doing it. This was really a problem when I was doing a lot of acting. It took a great deal of self-control to keep myself from doing it onstage.

5. I quite frequently lose pens. In my hair. Sometimes I have wandered around my house looking for a pen when I had 2 or three of them in my hair.

6. I cannot handle wearing two socks that feel different, even if they look the same. JDub laughs at me because I sort socks by how they feel (texture, thickness, etc.) rather than how they look.

I tag: Meinhead, Derrick, Kim. Another thing about me. I don't like to play by the rules unless it suits me. I'm only tagging three people. And I don't care. I TYPED THIS POST ONE-HANDED, PEOPLE! :)
