6 Weird Things/Habits About Myself

The first player of this game starts with the “6 weird/things/habits about yourself” and people who get tagged need to write a blog of their 6 weird habits/things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end you need to choose the 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. I’m terrified of body defects, especially if I think I could have or get them. Acne, moles, skin discoloration, bodily deformation or diseases (I used to think I could have scoliosis when I was younger)

2. I have a secret desire for an uber flexible and agile body — and though I’m fairly flexible, my current body isn’t half of what I’d like. The day I can do the splits is the day my life might be content and complete.

3. I can never read one book at a time; I always have to have 3 or 4 books that I’m reading alternately in any given week. (Current: Sophies World, Getting Past No, “Hey Whipple, Squeeze this”, No Logo, Beyond the Brand)

4. I’m anal about the meaning of words so I always look them up, sometimes the same word multiple times throughout the day, just so I remember them (even simple ones and ones I already know — most recent: diamond, irony, alliteration, minstrel, sever, willpower, disaffirmation). I do the same thing with facts.

5. I wish I could sing — it’s the one of the few natural talents I wasn’t blessed with — so I do it privately everyday just to remind myself how bad my singing voice actually is. But I will dance anywhere, bowling alleys, grocery stores, on the street, and especially when shopping — you need to see clothes in movement be for you buy them — or whenever my body feels like moving.

6. I’m bipolar about cleaning, on any given week my room can be a pigsty with food, dirty plates and glasses, empty juice cartons, piled clothes, scattered cds/dvds etc, or an immaculately sparkling room that’s been dusted, win-dexed, vacuumed and reorganized.

I tag: Archie, Ruby, Tina, Joe, Katie, Chalanea.
