28 Weird Things About Me

Since February is so short and sweet, I decided to have some fun tonight and come up with one thing for every day in this month that is weird about me. Granted, I could probably find something for every day of the year but maybe later..

1--I got engaged after one date. We had one date before (dinner) and one date after (drive in). I always have been a cheap person to date.;)

2--I think Fred Astaire is sexy and have since I was 6.

3--I have the entire 1984 Summer Olympics on beta-yes beta-and my favorite inspiration is the first official women's marathon when I need to be pumped.

4--I think gnomes and trolls are real. Some live in my backyard.

5--I will only drive a manual transmission.

6--I would rather eat salad than dessert.

7--I never rent DVD's. If I want to see something, I either buy it used or when it first comes out really cheap.

8--I had a MySpace space before my kids did.

9--I hate shopping in malls or mass market stores. I prefer indy stores or the Internet to shop.

10--I have over 60 GBs of music on my hard drive.

11--I try to buy everything I use on my body fragrance free. Perfumes change on me and smell like garbage after a while.

12--I am addicted to the Weather Channel and Jim Cantore is a one hot babe!

13--I always buy postcards of places I visit in case I lose the photos I have taken.

14--I wear plain old white cotton undies.

15--I still have the very first utility bill I ever had in my name. We pay more per gallon of gas now than that whole bill was.

16--I attended the NBA game with the biggest attendance ever. Over 61,000 people at the Pontiac Silver Dome. It rained that night inside-with rolls of toilet paper!

17--I have always wanted to change my name to Jacqueline. It seems very exotic to me, while Jan is so plain.

18--I will put raw garlic or peanut butter on anything!

19--I don't like diamonds or most jewelry-I wear my wedding ring and a running shoe charm and that is it.

20--I have done every Crim 10 miler since 1981. I lost three toe nails in one race-the monsoon year.

21--I collect trivia books and games.

22--I have to see the door if I am eating in a restaurant. I need to know how to escape if I need to get out fast.

23--I will not fly. I had a horrible experience in the early 80's and have never gotten back on a flying death tube.

24--I collect pine tree stamps. Rubber stamps, that is.

25--I wanted to be a left fielder for the Detroit Tigers growing up. Sigh-I was a girl.

26--My brother Bruce and I used to play chess all the time. When he died at age 15 , I said I would never play again and I haven't.

27--I do my own taxes. The only year I didn't, we got audited. And had to pay in-a lot! I actually dream about the numbers for a week after.

28--My nickname in High School was Willie-after my favorite baseball player Willie Horton. I was appalled when the character in the second Indiana Jones movie was named Willie and was so damned annoying!

****29--Just in case I forgot a leap year or something-I have been a vegetarian for almost 30 years. As you can tell by my blog name, it fits! ****

So there it is. How about posting your own weird ditties either as a comment or in a link to your own blog? I will be sure to visit your blog and see who is the weirdest!

  1. Lol. I think Fred Astaire is sexy too. I don't know if I have a blog, but I reckon I'd be way too weird, so I won't do this.

    That's how I found this blog. I googled "Fred Astaire is sexy" and it came up with only two pages. Lol! I find that ironic.


I really enjoy my blogging and hope you enjoy reading. Remember, these are only my opinions relating to my daily experiences. If you are anonymous, let me know what city and state you are from in your comment. Thanks.
