7 Weird Things

Turns out my friend Keara had also tagged me and I had not realized it. So I will share with you seven weird things about me:

1- Never, never in a window seat- I am claustrophobic. I am not kidding about it. I really am. It's not a mild "cramped places inconvenience me" claustrophobia. It's a "put me in a window seat on a plane by accident and I will absolutely freak out" brand of phobia. When I was at the hospital I had to be heavily sedated before they did the HIDA testing, because it entailed me being stuck in the same position for over an hour, with a ginormous nuclear medicine testing machine hovering just inches above my body (too close to my head for comfort). And that was not going to happen if I was awake and in full possession of my senses. I mean, if I had to get an MRI I don't know what I would do.

2- I like to eat raw spaghetti. Need I say more?

3- I wear size 11 shoes.

4- Sometimes I have a hard time opening up to people. If you know me in person, you would not think it. In social situations I am generally pretty friendly, I like to engage people in conversation and make them feel welcome. But left to my own devices I tend to keep to myself. I have old friends who are pissed off at me because I never call, and new friends, especially from the mommie boards, who may not know how much I care about them for the same reason. It's not that I don't care. It's that I am spacey often. I had not even realized that Amanda P had a blog and she is not only an online friend but a real life one!

5- I have an unusual aversion to skirts, much to the chagrin of both my mother and my husband, who think I should just get over pants already and show off some leg once in a while.

6- I hate mayo with a passion. I can't even smell it. It makes me want to throw up. Nothing I eat can touch mayo or I will simply not eat it.

7- If I tweeze my eyebrows I start sneezing uncontrollably, which is why (among other things) I would much rather shave them.

So am I a weirdo or what?


  1. ummm yeah....skirts and I are not friends either! :)
    Fun read!

  2. Haha, the tweezing and sneezing has me cracking up! LOL!

    I can be really claustraphobic too. Your closed spaces fear sounds alot like my spider fear! Completely irrational but almost life-controlling! It's terrible.

    But you really aren't that weird!

  3. Other than 1 and 3 ... you and I are TWINS!!

    (See, I'm pretty tiny - hence the small feet - so I don't mind small spaces.)
