Monday- Double Tag (updated)

Good morning. My new blog comrade, Lesley, tagged me for the 7 random/weird things about myself meme. I have done this meme before, so if you want, go read about how I eat raw spaghetti and other weird things.

Go pay a visit to Lesley's blog as well, if you are interested. Lesley is a fellow Sunday Scribblings/Three Word Wednesday writer, who hails from Fife, in the United Kingdom.

UPDATE: It turns out I have also been tagged today by Michelle for the 7 random things meme. I now feel that I should repost here my previous post in answer to this meme (from May 2007), for the benefit of my friends.

7 weird things about me, by Ingrid

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.


  1. I loved your SEVEN things.

    I was tagged for this too. Mine will be up tomorrow only not quite as good as yours!

  2. I'm with you on the mayo thing...*insert dry heave here*

  3. Too funny -- we are complete opposites on two of these...

    I get much more anxious on planes if I am not in a window seat. I need to be able to see where I am in relation to the ground -- if I am away from the window I feel trapped.

    And I only wear skirts -- can't wear pants.
