So apparently I'm weird.

Jumping on the bandwagon

First of all: I just announced the Yarn Life 2007 Crafting Challenge. Hope you'll join us.

I was tagged for the "six weird things about me" meme at both The Stitch Witch and The Barefoot Cobbler. So, of course, I feel like I need to come up with twelve weird things. Hmm. (What, you're thinking it shouldn't be that hard? Shush!) I'm trying to think of things I haven't posted before...

1. I listen to podcasts all day at work, but I am incapable of listening to audiobooks. I just can't process them.

2. Somewhat related: I find it much easier to read books than to watch movies.

3. I generally hate going to parties. I am convinced that I like hosting them, though. (Not sure whether this is actually true.)

4. The first time I ever had alcohol (except for wine at Mass), I was almost 23. Had Defulct not made it his goal to get me to like some sort of alcohol, I likely still would not have had any.

5. I find alphabetizing and sorting to be extremely relaxing. This can lead to amusing times at the bookstore.

6. I have a weirdly good memory. This leads to me remember things about my friends' lives that they themselves don't remember. From before I met them. Because they mentioned it once, and then forgot, but I remember. Of course, I can't remember what day of the week it is or anything useful like that, but I remember all the useless trivia.

7. Tuesday has pretty much always been my favorite day of the week. I don't know why.

8. Once I got past the Sesame Street stage, the only show I watched regularly as a child was Avonlea. (And now I watch way too much. Oh well.)

9. I dropped out of high school. Actually, I wasn't old enough, so my mother had to do it on my behalf.

10. I have been making progress on getting over my picky eating issues, but I still refuse to eat seafood in any way, shape, or form. Except that I just discovered that there are anchovies in Worcestershire sauce, and this is now bugging me.

11. I cannot sleep if there are any open closet doors in the room.

12. I'm pretty good with understanding knitting patterns, but I seem incapable of deciphering crochet patterns. I have no idea why. I'll think I understand, but it just... doesn't work.

Okay. Did it. I'm only going to tag six, though: FemiKnit Mafia, Mamacate, Zuzu's Perch, Border Episcopalian, Raising WEG, and San Diego Dispatches.

I also cannot sleep if a closet door is open!!!

What does that mean?

Wow! Ditto numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9 (junior high, but I went back after striking a deal that I could go to a different school), 10, and 11. (and I never tried to decipher a crochet pattern but I reckon I couldn't do it!)
Does that make you less wierd, or me wierd?!

#6 pretty much describes me, too....

I hate parties too.

Third me for the closet door thing!! Hmmm.....

Wow! I can't believe you did twelve. I had a hard time, until I was done, then I thought of a ton! LOL

Definitely close the closet door!

Same thing for me with the whole not being able to process audiobooks thing. I think it's because most books are written to be read instead of spoken. Silly, I know, but it's the best excuse I can come up with.

And darn you for tagging me during finals week. Like I need any more excuses to be a slacker. ;-)

Heh, I got multiply tagged and had NO DESIRE to do more than 6. :)

I ran away from home when I was 16, which was technically dropping out...
