Six Weird Things Meme

I’ve been tagged by Nettie at Singing a Verse of My Song for the 6 Wierd Things Meme. Soooo…. I’m thinking here…..wierd things about me:

1.) I get antsy if I’m not multi-tasking. At the moment, I’m watching the news, blogging, thinking about what I need to do tomorrow, and chatting with my hubby. When I’m on the phone I pace around the house cleaning. It is physically impossible for me to sit doing nothing.

2.) I hate the membranes on orange slices. When I eat an orange, I either peel each individual slice, or make sure I bite very cleanly through the entire slice, because I hate the feel of stringy membranes dragging through my teeth. I LOVE mandarin oranges– no membrane.

3.) I broke both arms within 15 months of each other in 2001-02.

The first time I fell off a horse and broke my left humerus. The second break (my right wrist) happened when I tripped over a hose while walking backwards. Giving me great empathy for my son who broke his arm today.
4.) I like wierd snacks: sardines on taco chips; and dates stuffed with cream cheese. Both these loves developed when I was trying to boost my calcium intake and recover from my first broken arm, which was incredibly slow in healing (I ended up having surgery and getting a 7 inch long plate put in my arm. That fixed it.)
5.) I am horribly finicky about fried eggs. I cook them on low and flip them quickly. If they get ANY brown crispy stuff on them, I pick it off. However they have to be cooked enough to be all the way ‘set’–I don’t like them runny.

6.)And probably the strangest: whenever I visualize a year, I picture the 12 months of the year in a circle, positioned like the numbers on the face of the clock, except the months go COUNTER-clockwise, starting with January in the 5:00 position. No, I do not know why I think this way.

That was easier than I thought it would be– guess I’m stranger than I realized. Now I get to tag 6 people:

If any of you have already done this or are too busy, that’s OK. And if anybody else would like to play too, leave a note in comments. Now I need to go back and tell Nettie I’ve done my 6!

  8. #6 is ME TOO!! I thought I was the only one ever to think of it that way.

    So did you ever think of number as having gender? (0, 1, 6, 7, 8, 9 are the "guys"; 2, 3, 4, 5 are the "girls")
