Me quirky?

Thanks to our esteemed and locally renowned blogger M.Toast, I now have something to post today…

List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself  (and if nothing else, I’m damn quirky)

  1. My dad and I make up names for each other that play for about 1-2 months at a time.  Currently, my nickname is Barky and his is VonSchnauzer
  2. I’m a tightfisted miser at home and at work.  My motto is “Don’t ask me if you can buy something.  You can’t.”      
  3. I had a poster of Bobby Kennedy in my bedroom when I was eleven.  It hung next to my other Bobby Heartthrob – Bobby Sherman.
  4. I cannot stand the sound the styrofoam makes.  I once made my 11 year old nephew sign a pledge that he would never rub styrofoam together within earshot of me ever again.  On pain of death. 
  5. No one touches my bellybutton.  Not even me.  It feels weird in there.  Like an alien.
  6. I prefer cloudy days to sunny ones.
  7. I wish there was a radio station that only played songs written in a minor key.  It would be my favorite.

I’m supposed to tag, but you know my strict No-Tag policy.  Steal if you wish though!

    two things:
    1) done this before, but stealing anyway. I have been angsty of late and feel like filling my blog with memes rather than babbling about my actual brainrot.

    2) regarding thing number 7 – you should invest in This Mortal Coil albums, i think. i dunno if their music is technically in a minor key, as i am not a musician and can’t tell such things, but it is definitely softer. http://youtube.com/watch?v=iUlqS9HHaAw is a decent example of their stuff. Don’t let word of this spread around, but i take my nickname from their cover of Big Star’s “Holocaust.”

    Tried it, but it’s not moving my soul today. Maybe it’s because I contaminated my ears with Amy Winehouse this morning.

    You and I must be around the same age, because anytime I’ve ever mention Bobby Sherman…everyone says, “Bobby who??? Who the hell is that??

    Here Comes the Brides, you idiot!!

    Styrofoam does the same for me. And I most definately prefer cloudy days over sunny. Give me GLOOM anyday!

    Yeah! Here come the Brides for sure. Was that the one with Uncle Joe?

    What if either of the Bobby’s wanted to touch your bellybutton?

    No way. Nobody touches the sacred button, not even me.

    Tec – http://teckc.livejournal.com/ Tagged me, but when I told her I couldn’t think of any she wrote one for me. It made me laugh. I’m not sure about the “awesome” but the rest is pretty accurate.

    Tec’s 7 for me:
    “1. I’m quitting my job and starting my own business because I’m awesome.
    2. I have three teenage boys and I’m still relatively sane.
    3. I have a special gift for finding amazing stuff in thrift stores.
    4. I’m really a lesbian – my marriage only works out because my husband is kind of a woman. 😉 (Love you, TVH!)
    5. I prefer food porn to real porn.
    6. My hair changes color more often than some people do laundry.
    7. I was Patsy Cline in my last life.”

    and I’m with you on the belly button thing Barky!

    Haha! I saw Jaime Pressley in The Parade this weekend. I know she’s one of your fave raves.

    Bellybuttons are weird things. Mine has a scar running through it, so it kind of looks like a butterfly, or at least that’s how I imagined it when I was a kid. But yeah, if anyone tried to touch my bellybutton, I would definitely give that look of ‘quoi?’

    They certainly are weird. I couldn’t even imagine having mine pierced. Tres ick!

    I’m thinking you might have some pretty funky stuff living down around the belly button :mrgreen:

    I don’t even dare look.

    Haha, bellybuttons do have a less-than-human like quality; what about those people that make their belly-buttons talk and stuff with funny voices? Sick sick SICK! LOL… 😉

    I’d just as soon not have one at all.

    Dangit! And I looove bellybuttons.
    I touch mine all the time.

    One word, Red – YUCKY. I’ll bet yours is pierced too.

    Strange you should say that about your belly button! Kelly will almost KILL you if you go within a bulls roar of hers…the funny thing is when Zoe was little she used to stick her finger in hers before she went to sleep…she wouldn’t settle if she had a suit on with studs until you opened the one where she could get her finger into it! kelly used to nearly throw up just looking at her do it!
    😆
    not a big fan of the styrofoam thing either..almost as bad as fingernails on a blackboard!
    YUCK!!

    Haha! That’s funny about Kelly watching her daughter do that. It would most certainly freak me out too.

    Bellybutton……?????!!!!!

    Where do i begin?

    Ok I am done..

    Boy, I’m glad I’m not the only freaky girl though. Seems that many folks have this strangeness lurking inside of them…

    I think belly buttons are sexy, but my wife doesn’t like her’s touched either. I don’t listen. It’s one of the few things she yells at me for.

    I will absolutely yell if mine is touched. And I don’t usually yell.

    So who is Bobby Sherman, didn’t get it even with the clues? Maybe I’m the wrong nationality, cause I’m certainly the right age…. LOL
    pxx

    He’s a teenybop idol from the late 60’s. Muy handsome… http://www.google.com/musica?aid=Iqli3FRPGQG&sa=X&oi=music&ct=result
