5 Weird Things About Me

            I’ve said this before and I’m saying it again: Where does the time go?! I think this heat and humidity is really getting to me. I constantly feel lethargic and am unable to focus on anything for very long. I honestly don’t think Twitter has helped very much. It’s just another distracting feed like Facebook, so I have added it to my “distractions to avoid” list, which includes most of the internet. Speaking of the internet, my computer decided to do some avoiding for me and would only load email and a couple other websites no matter which browser I was using. After over a week of being unable to visit many sites and giving up on my computer time most days, I finally researched my problem on my phone (since Google results could not load on the computer). I had to do some high tech computer manipulation with the command prompt, but I got it working again, at least for now.

            Anyway, Barbara from Life & Faith in Caneyhead has challenged me to name 5 weird things about myself. So, no Flashback Friday today, and sorry Barbara for my delay. I sort of had a hard time narrowing down my list, because being introverted and geeky automatically adds a lot of weird quirks, but here are the things I have chosen to share today:

5 Weird Things About Me
  • When I was 5 years old, my dream job was to be a mom. I considered a couple other options in my teen years, but since then, being a stay-at-home mom has still been my dream.
  • I enjoy playing video games. I have logged the most hours with Legend of Zelda and Star Wars: The Old Republic.
  • I absolutely hate making phone calls! I sometimes have a hard time talking myself into calling my best friends, and if I am forced to call an insurance company or patient at work, I nearly have a panic attack.
  • I live in Oklahoma, but I don’t like biscuits and gravy or Dr. Pepper, which apparently makes me weird in this state. I guess it’s because I was not born here :)
  • I have an eclectic assortment of interests and I tend to have a hard time picking favorites. For example, if you ask me my favorite movie/book/song/pastime, I’ll ask you to name a genre, and then if I enjoy that genre, I’ll name at least three things that I like in that category in no particular order.

Since I’m joining in a little late, I won’t tag anyone else, but feel free to share your own oddities in a comment or let me know if you have already participated.


  1. Sorry about your computer issues.
    Nothing wrong with digging computer games. I've been hooked ever since Pong. (Yes, the 70's Pong.) But no Dr. Pepper? I guess Mr. Pibb is out of the question then.

  2. If you are around my age (53), I would say you might be menopausal. It is weird how time flies when one is tired and forget where one puts one's head. I think most of us have some game we love to play...mine is criminal case. I am a true Canuck but I don't like poutine...yuck and I don't watch hockey. I am of German descent but hate (yes hate!) sausages and I don't care for sauerkraut...oh well. As for something weird about me, well, I cherish weird:) OK..If I get really scared, I get itchy armpits and must scratch like some ape.

  3. I'm with you about phone calls. In fact, I'm glad a lot of stuff can be done through text or email these days (like service calls). I can email and text better than calling. Glad you figured out the computer problems for now!


  4. I don't think you're weird. My son is 37. He hates to talk on the phone, and I know other people who feel the same way. I don't like biscuits and gravy. I hate Dr. Pepper. A lot of people here in Florida like boiled peanuts. I think they look like cockroaches.


  5. You had to narrow it down to 5. I couldn't. Five things would barely scratch the surface.

    I'm with you on phone calls. The main reason my hair gets cut maybe once a year (if I'm lucky--I've gone 2 years before) is because it requires me to call to make an appointment. Yup, it takes me months to get into the right "frame of mind" to call to make a hair appointment.

  6. I hate talking on the phone too. I much prefer to deal with people via email. I don't like biscuits and gravy either. I just can't wrap my head around the concept.


Thank you for stopping by! Please feel free to leave a comment and I will visit you back :)
