7 weird things

Bri tagged me and asked me to post 7 weird things about myself, so here goes (and I'm warning you - you're about to get a dose of the true me, so consider yourself forewarned of my minor psychoses):
  1. I always dry myself after a shower with the seams of the towel inward and the tag to the bottom, and if I don't my skin gets a weird feeling and I keep thinking about it for the next few minutes (the feeling passes by the time I'm dressed)
  2. When I was little, numbers always had personalities in my mind; like for instance, 7 always thought it was great, and wanted to hang around 8 and 9, and thought it was too good for 6. But 8 and 9 were much more mature, and didn't really want 7 hanging with them. (Anybody want to try and analyze that one?
  3. I love small spaces (this one you may already know from an earlier 'tag' I had done); I love feeling 'cocooned' - I like sleeping bags, and think an MRI would be an enjoyable experience.
  4. I cannot stand nail files - well, more specifically - emery boards. Hate to have to touch them or pick them up, cannot possibly use them! (I have found that the spongy, multi-sided nail files are usable for me.) I cut and shape my nails with a clipper 99% of the time.
  5. I LOVE pens, and pencils (if they are mechanical) - I love getting cool new pens, and I love to write - with the cool pens! (On the flip side, I HATE cheap, crappy pens, and having to use them grates me like fingernails on a chalkboard!) I believe this fascination started in 4th grade when I got those pencils that you could rotate the points (anybody know what I mean?) That's my earliest memory of beginning to crave new writing instruments, and collect them, and write with them - even if only my name over and over - just to use them!
  6. I almost always read a magazine from back to front.
  7. Brussel sprouts, and the mere smell or thought of them, make me gag!

Gee, I could probably go on and on (guess I'm weirder than I thought!), but instead I'll tag Betsy, Laura and Kristine, and anyone else who happened to read this! I love finding stuff out about people!! If you have a blog and are taking the tag, leave a comment and let me know so I can be sure to check it out. If you don't have a blog, post your list in my comment section!!

Umm, I can't think of anything! I must not be weird! Alright, I'll try...

Alright, I posted my 7 things... but I'm sure I'm still not as weird as you! That number thing still freaks me

Q: Why was 6 scared of 7?
A: Because it 8 9. (ate nine, get it?)

EVer heard that dumb one?

I am with you on having a penchant for pens and I also hate emory boards.
