The Shame of it All my fall to mediocrity and more

Ho Hum OK I�m going to do it. GOTB tagged me and I feel guilty not doing it because she interviewed and made me famous���. RIGHT? 5 weird habits of mine. I don�t think I have that many weird habits but I�m sure some would disagree. I each sushi all the time, and whine when I can�t get it. I do a weird thing were I pull my lower lip over my upper lip � it sounds weird but one side of my face has one eyebrow and one lip which sort of crook upward and I think I got into the habit of doing it to cover the lip once someone pointed this out to me like ten years ago. Not a very attractive habit if I do say so myself. I peel and eat bananas from both ends� I like to finish with the middle section. Maybe not weird but it annoys some people that I have to put some form of lotion on my feet several times a day. I do have a foot thing going on. I�m stuck on perfectly maintained feet. The shower before taking a bath thing; I never take a bath without having taken shower first. I think, just so as to put everyone in the mode of "she is a pain in the ass", everyone needs to write down at least one of their nasty old weird habits in my comment section. Also feel free to consider yourself tagged and do one for yourself. The more I can find out about you people the more I have to hold against you should I ever need it �in a court of law or that heaven some of you actually thinks exists, or something like that.

Actually, I do the lip thing too. Wow. Strangely enough, an electrician pointed it out to me this afternoon.

You've already read my wierd stuff. Actually, you've read way too much of my wierd stuff :)

Those aren't too weird... I understand the sushi thing, but once I have it, I am totally over it for about a month. I had a hard time as well with trying to classify what was "weird". I peel a banana from the bottom, so I totally understand your banana habit.

Hmmm. I buy hats, but never wear them. Seriously, I have two baseball caps, two flat caps, maybe 6 stocking caps, one of which is purple and 3 feet long, two straw fedoras, and an australian wool hat fedora. The only time I really wear any of them is extreme cold or if I am helping on my uncle's farm.

I'm weird. And damned proud of it :D

k...Let's see...

I rinse with mouth wash several times a day...I always swish it in the mouth for 30 seconds or more....

I wash my hands a lot, and always rub the sods for up to 12 seconds every time..

I pull out nose hairs a lot. I HATE THEM..

I usually think masterbation gives me bad luck...I have lots of bad luck.

I love sushi myself.

there...that's plenty..enjoy for future reference...

I like to have books stacked on top of eachother flat-wise and piled high and precariously on tables, I despise them being on shelves.

zenpro: have I? Read too much? Humm.

leigh: it's difficult to eat a banana from the top down. The sushi thing..I'm never over it.

coyote: hats are cool, they just tend to get all over the place unless you have a special hat closet.

Bennet: I totally get the mouth thing. I don't have too much of a problem with nose hair at least not mine. ;) I do prefer my men with hairless noses. I also..prefer when people masturbate they do it with an U and not an E.
It doesn't give bad luck it makes you go blind silly.

protagoras: I must have them lined up on shelves tallest in the middle smallest on the ends.

Okay, you know those moronic McDonald's ads with the dorks eating their burgers with their pinkies up? I'm the opposite. When I eat a burger it's thumbs & pinkies on the bottom, remaining fingers on top. Guess I'm the dork.

I'm with ya on the shower before the bath... not so weird...

I have to put lotion on my feet before I put my shoes on in the mornings and before I go to bed... not so weird to me.

The banana deal a little weird.. but who's to say eating a banana only from one end is normal?

The lip thing... trying to get a mental picture... LMAO! I picture my monkey picture.

Sushi... don't like it... so yeah, a little weird to me... but that's me...

Again, sorry for the tag! ;)

Ok Alice, this is 'cause I like you...

When on my way to bed, I have to go straight from the bathroom to bed. If along the way I am asked to do anything, ANYTHING, no matter how small, I have to go back and pee.

I am a freak I tell you!

I was freakier as a kid. Back then, even talking to me would make me go back to the toilet. Once, I spend the entire night there... that girl had some issues! ;)

>>eat bananas from both ends
Along these lines, I like to decapitate my gingerbread man cookies. Then I proceed to amputate their arms and legs. I do that AFTER devouring the head because it would break my heart to have them suffer unnecessarily.

(I also have a bad habit of putting my website in my comments because I no longer use blogger. *hangs head in shame*)

Oh, I also drink. (But only to excess.)

Bananas- don't eat them much but when I do, I prefer to slowly scrape off layers with my teeth and savor it that way rather than chomping down into it.

It looks "blow-jobby" though so I can't eat them in peace in public! People would think me too psycho nympho-ey, which I may very well be, but just not when eating a banana.

I don't believe the banana thing. You made that up. It isn't possible. I think it violates some physical law.

I like to point out when people are wrong.

Think ID is wrong, and you can peel bananas that way--yeah know the eatting bananas the blow jobby way thing too--has been pointed out to me. No longer eat them in public

Do the shower before bath thing; don't think that's weird

I watch TV with the sound off and make up my own dialogue

coyote: good thing for that.

Sar:picture please.

GOTB:The monkey picture is pretty close.

Snorting......well there is that one actress who snorts and it doesn't sound too bad, forget her name.

MoJo: so what is it growl or purr..probably depends on your mood.

miz bohem: that is a little....shall we say odd�maybe book worthy. ;)

tran: it's always nice to have something to hold against someone isn't it?

rio: the lips thing is odd, having to have the dishes clean prior to cooking well I�m totally on board with that.

Dave: I can't even picture you eating gingerbread cookies even in a barbaric fashion...how sweet. if you're going to drink you might as well do it right. Naw, it's because you are spam but that's ok I just looked at the last thunderdome thing and as I agree with your holy decision I'll let it stand.

Indie: I post pictures of my feet one time in a friends journal thing and I got too many comments and emails telling me they thought I had a self foot fetish so not wanting to put myself in a position to be labeled such I decline. Sar has a nice recent foot picture at her site though; if feet are your thing.

Dedd: thanks but I�m right.;)

Pia: oh is it weird to watch tv in silence while making up your own dialogue?

jay: ewww...you don't mean when you were a toddler do you????? That�s what i was afraid of.

I have to change my socks each and every time I take them off. For example, I get up in the morning, put on socks and shoes, go out to get the newspaper, take my shoes back off and those socks are done until laundry day. I am leaving tonight for a meeting tomorrow morning in Silicon Valley. I will be gone around 19 hours. I'm bringing five pairs of socks.

Well, aside from sharing one of Gotb's...

Well, you already know about my webcomic and (obviously) blog habits, but also I'll sometimes fire up a site even when I know for a fact it won't have updated.

Honestly that's all I can think of at the moment.

Is apples with peanut butter weird? I think maybe not but it is a habit of mine and I have to think of five more as gotb tagged me too.

Doug: You see that is why you are my older internet boyfriend.That slightly odd habit is endearing even though it is fucking strange.

Wombat: indeed and i could probably guess at the ones you aren't telling.;)

zydeco: why thank you

bizman: I'll go check it out sometime this evening. Apples and peanut butter is pretty normal. Leave it to an average businessman to have no weird habits.

This sounds fun-
From comments from others I do Wombats thing-firing up websites I don't update-but now I do...
I like to smile and wave frantically at complete strangers while driving down the road, sometimes with my left foot propped on the side mirror to get reactions.
I am really bad about getting in the bed and forgetting to brush before I go to sleep, Anne will fix this when we move in togeher but I already have like 20 fillings-I don't seem to learn.
I feel an obsessive need to comment on any page where my opinion would fit in, like now.
I don't really take showers that much-I do bathe and the tub stays clean-and I understand that sitting in water that I am making dirty isn't as good as a shower-but I still just take baths for th e most part.
And my worst habbit is to hold a grudge over something stupid for years and years and wait for the perfect oppurtunity to surprise who ever it is with something mean, esp when I know they dont even remember I exist.

When I am finished with something around the house, I mostly leave it until some (rare) designated clean-up time. I hate to fuss and pick stuff up right after I have finished something.
