Six Weird Things

I have been tagged by
Kathryn (before Xmas!), Forbidden Knitter and Cherry, to list six weird things about myself. This was difficult as, although I sometimes think I'm weird, I couldn't think of why! I still can't, so I've just grabbed six out of the air:

I have to put tins, packets, spoons (everything, in fact) up the right way, even on the conveyor belt when shopping. Packets and tins absolutely must be opened at the top. I don't know what might happen if I forgot one day. I could never forget, so it's not an issue.

I am the worst (best?) hypochondriac I know, except for most members of my family. I am thinking of getting "help" as it's taking over my life again. This is not a good weird thing. It is very bad.

I absolutely cannot be too restricted (eg, someone pinning me down, in fun). I was once wrapped in a carpet as a child (by other children) and have never forgotten the feeling of claustrophobia, even though they kindly left my head poking out. I go ABSOLUTELY CRAZY if anyone attempts to hold me down, even if it's just my hands.

Like Cherry I often throw an impromptu disco for myself and Charlie, or on my own. I can get into quite a euphoric state dancing to cheesy tunes (even Cliff Richard.....). If you've never tried it, do. You might surprise yourself.

I don't answer the phone. I like to be able to choose who I speak with, and when. You can imagine how much I detest my door-bell ringing.

I eat strange combinations of foods. I don't mind if they don't go together, as long as I like each food. I went through a phase of having tuna and sprouts every day. I love sprouts and still eat them several times a week, as a snack.

Well, that's six. I could do a few more but wouldn't wish to bore your pants off.


  1. Ahh, the old get down and boogie. I'm a big fan of lounge room discos, too!

  2. You're not too weird. hehe :) Thanks for sharing!

    As for being a hypochondriac, I'm sure if you just thought about it a little, you could see that there's nothing wrong with you and you're fine, etc. :) Especially since you are so healthy and take good care of yourself. :)

  3. love to disco at home with the kid!!!
    I think this "6 weird" is very relative. what is perfectly custom in one place is odd in another. does not strike me as weird either. I was also tagged and must come up with the "goods"...

  4. I too have 1, 2, 3 and 5. If anyone tries to pin any part of me down I will burst into tears. And if I am tickled I sob uncontrollably. It terrifies me. I didn't have the house phone switched to 'ringer on' for several years, just had the mobile and about 3 people in the world knew the number. I now have an answer machine which gets switched on if I am having a good day.
    I don't know about you but the hypochondria got worse with the birth of my child as I now am scared of dying and leaving her. It IS very bad, I understand.
    And now I feel like a mad person :P

  5. I'm a hypochondriac too. But when I stress about these things I always end up thinking why am I spoiling today over something which might never happen? It really isn't worth it.

    I'm with you on the phone and doorbell issues too.

  6. Now, order in the kitchen, hypochondria, claustrophobia, not answering the phone/door, tuna and sprouts - all quite .........idiosyncratic - but Cliff Richard, sorry!!!! Way Way Out 'There' ('there' being weirdsville) - seek help immediately!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
