I'm Tagged!

I was tagged by the wonderful Bethro. And I love these things (like Beth, I love talking about myself).


  • Link to the person who tagged me
  • Mention the rules
  • Reveal six quirky yet boring, mundane, banal and pedestrian facts about yourself
  • Tag six other bloggers by linking to them
  • Go to each of their blogs and leave a message letting them know they’ve been tagged!
Here we go:
  • In the last 3 years, I've lost both of my big toenails. Yuck.
  • I have two very large pet peeves that are mundane things for other people: chewing and sneezing. You don't even have to chew with your mouth open for it to annoy me, if I can hear anything resembling chewing - most of the time, I'm annoyed irrationally.
  • Nick and I sing songs and change the words to add our cat Sophie into the lyrics.
  • I don't laugh aloud during movies - even if I come out of the movie and think it was very funny. The people with me always think I didn't like the movie because I don't have any actual reactions at the time.
  • My favorite holiday is Christmas - partly for the traditions that I associate with it. I used to go into my parents room by hiding my eyes so I couldn't see the tree in our living room and they would lead me in with my eyes closed after my mom made hot chocolate for us all. Also, Christmas Eve is pasta with two sauces (calamari fra diavolo and shrimp/clam scampi), salad and garlic bread. Yum!
  • If I can't do something right away, I usually stop doing it. Very bad habit for trying new things that are pretty hard. :)

Now, I tag:

Nick because Bethro stole everyone else. Anyone else who is looking at this- feel free to partake, even if you don't have a blog and just want to leave it in the comments.

And don't forget that you instead say "that's funny." It's like your body broke and you can only do reverse onomatopoeia.

I have lost toenails too! Once from ice climbing (you are always kicking into the ice with your crampon - hard on the toe) once from running (runners were small).

i can only think of of three things: i have to vacuum and/or do the dishes immediately when i get home from work before i can do anything else, i too hate any kind of chewing sound (i hate gum chewing too), i have to have my neck covered when i sleep no matter what because i used to fear vampires would bite me and now i just cant shake the habit!!
