six weird things about me

Last month, Riss tagged me with a meme. Yes, I'm just getting to it now. You may find it hard to believe, but it took a while for me to put together a list of six weird things about me.

  • When I'm making a sandwich, the mustard cannot touch the cheese.

  • I'm 6'4" but unless I hit my head on something, I usually go through the day not realizing how tall I am. I also "get the picture" when I see tall actors (like Tom Selleck, Vince Vaughn, or John Corbett) on television or in a movie dwarfing the people they're next to.

  • I am terrified of submerged objects. The idea of a reef or a shoal is really scary to me. I grew up around water and know my way around a boat... perhaps it's a healthy fear.

  • I find it extremely difficult to fall asleep without white noise (fan, air conditioner, etc.) and three pillows. (I'm a side-sleeper: one pillow goes under my head; the second underneath whatever arm is the upper arm; the third goes between my knees.)

  • I am strangely drawn to the Oregon license plate. I have one on my kitchen wall.

  • I have been fascinated by car wheels--and in particular, hubcaps--since I was a child. In my mind, the coolest hubcaps ever are from the 1965 Ford Galaxie.








Alright. Now it's Peter's turn. He hasn't blogged in over a week.

I saw some hubcaps yesterday that continue turning when the car is stopped. It was freaky to see.

We have rent to own rim shops around here. You'll see a Plymouth Sundance with spinners from time to time.

I didn't know about your mustard cheese nonsense.

Oh you must be a lot of fun to sleep with.

Apparently someone has a rimming fetish but isn't into watersports.

Pillow between your knees is very good for your back!

When I stand between you Cashew and Candy I feel all migety in the land of freakish giants.

And you WILL eat it, Snacccccckkkkk Monnnnnnnstererererer!

This is like the first meme thing that I have read, entirely, that didn't irritate me or cause me to think that the authour is a self indulgent, egotistical fuck.

Good job, buddy.

Me? WTF? Like we were gonna hook up anyways. Whatever, lady.

Snap!

Snooze said...

Is the mustard/cheese thing just if you're making the sandwich, or would you be unable to eat one that way as well [if you hadn't made it]?

madamerouge said...

Just when I'm making it. If I'm handed a sandwich, I'll be eating it--unless it contains parmesan cheese.

Oh, and the rule applies to cheeseburgers as well--if I'm assembling one.

Butchieboy said...

Ok. Time for a new post, red. It was interesting for the first week.

Add one more weird thing... you like to post once a week at the most

Butchieboy said...

Yeah, jerk. Just because you have red hair doesn't mean you can park in the handicapped spots, either.

Sandwiches are all about vertical order. Lettuce at the bottom doesn't work, and ham at the top is stupid.
