Six Inconsequential Things Meme

I have been tagged by the talented TX Poppet over at Canned Laughter for a Six Things/Habits/Quirks About Me MeMe. I am honored she feels I'm up to the technological challenges as she's had to help me out in the past.

Here are The Rules:

  1. Link to the person that tagged you.
  2. Post the rules on your blog
  3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
  4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
  5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

So without further ado; six quirks/habits about me that are just plain strange:

  1. I have an irrational fear of escalators. I can not bring myself to get on an escalator if I don’t have at least one hand firmly grasping the handrail. My children find this hilarious and are constantly daring me to just “get on with no hands already!”
  2. I have no desire whatsoever to scuba dive. Well, that’s not entirely true; I’d love to but I just can’t. I’m a good swimmer, love lakes and oceans, and have enjoyed numerous snorkeling adventures. But with scuba diving, the thought of all that water on top of me? Creeps me out.
  3. I shave my legs every day. 365 days a year. For the past thirty years. (The occasional camping trip and a few stays in OB Comp are the only exceptions.)
  4. I do not consider myself a superstitious person; but I believe the first house we owned here in Whoville was haunted. So much so that, against the advice of our realtor, I disclosed it to the buyers.
  5. I don’t like to be touched when I’m trying to go to sleep. One crossed ankle is all the Saint gets
  6. I don't like for other people to touch my face and so for that reason I've had exactly two facials in my whole life. However as my forty five year old face is beginning to resemble your grandmother's alligator pocketbook, I may have to suck it up already.

Now I will demonstrate my mad linking skills by randomly tagging:

Daisy Jo over at He Loves Me... He Loves Me Not (Least likely to participate)

Mary Alice at From the Front Lines (Always food for thought)

Shelly from I Miss My Sanity (Most likely to participate)

Hotfessional over at My Life As A Hotfessional (She needs fodder for her 365 Blog Challenge)

Suburban Correspondent from The More The Messier (We're bonding over our love of teenagers)

Vanessa over at Random Rambling About My Crazy Life (A new friend also sharing her life with "terrorists")

I think the escalator thing is funny! No hands? Just once? Maybe give it a try? Or maybe hold the hand of someone who is holding on? Oh well, we all have fears!

And I just did a MEME but will do it again, because I thought of several things I should have put on the first one. Thanks Fannie Mae, I'll get it up soon!

Seriously, I got stuck at the Atlanta airport with two huge suitcases; I only got on the escalator because some random guy took pity on me and took one of my bags for me!

Amanda said...

I am thoroughly impressed that you are such a dedicated shaver. I manage it maybe every other day.

Sydney Speel said...

trade links ?

Mary Alice said...

You shave EVERY day. Exhausting. I am impressed. I like to let mine get all spikey once in a while so Military Man REALLY can appreciate the smooth fresh shaved feel!

DaisyJo said...

I am with you on number 5, sister.

blackbird said...

We are amazingly similar.

Fannie Mae said...

Perhaps I should clarify; at barely 5'3"? It just doesn't take that long to shave my legs!

I'm with you on the scuba diving for the same reason. And because you have to depend on a tank to breath. No thanks. I also do not like to have my face touched but do like facials. Hmm. And? Don't touch me when I'm trying to sleep. It's like we're soul mates or something. :)
