Six Weird Things

Posted: Monday, December 18, 2006 by Travis Cody in

My new friend Tiggerprr tagged me for this. I don't think I've done a weird things post yet.

First, 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.

So. . .

Thing #1 that is weird about me is that I have kept every edition of Sports Illustrated magazine since 1983. Don't ask me why. I'm weird that way.

Thing #2 that is weird about me is that I alphabetize everything. Music, books, DVD's. Give me more that 2 things and I'll put them in alphabetical order.

Thing #3 that is weird about me is that I'll watch the occasional chick flick - by choice.

Thing #4 that is weird about me is that I'll make an entire meal out of mashed potatoes. I like Idahoan brand Loaded Baked or Four Cheese. Just add water and microwave for 4 minutes - instant dinner!

Thing #5 that is weird about me is that I keep several reference books around me - I'm talking right next to me - wherever I sit. I keep a dictionary, a thesaurus, a book of quotes, and a language usage text where I can get my hands on them.

Thing #6 that is weird about me is that I can't sleep with the covers tucked in. Sheets, blankets, comforters - everything has to be untucked. When I sleep in a hotel, I gotta pull the sheets and blankets out.

There you have it. I am certifiably weird.

Now for who to tag. Hmmmm. Let's see. Who do I know that is weird?

1. Julie
2. Angell
3. Am
4. Lynn
5. Dana
6. Diana

    I share #2 and #4 with you! Our DVDs (500+) and CDs (900+) are all alpha order! Mashed Potatoes are their own food group, I say!

  1. Travis says:

    Dana: Let your inner weirdness shine through darlin!

    Tiggerprr: Agreed!! Mashed potatoes are the supremem food group!

  1. Diana says:

    By the way, I also do #2 and #6. I can't have anything tucked in!

  1. I share most of your weirdness... like the covers untucked... I have this thing about my feet being trapped under cover. No matter how cold, I always have 1 foot from under the cover.

    Oh and instant potatoes... heavenly! My kids think so too.

    The way I see it, most everybody has SOMETHING weird about them. It's just a question of where on the weirdness scale they lie! LOL

  1. julie says:

    HEY! I resemble that remark! I guess I got some work to do.

    Hmm I knew most of those things! Except the bed...nope I did NOT know about the bed!!
