Kate tagged me with this weird things meme.


RULES: People who get tagged need to write a blog post of 6 weird things about them as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.


1. I am normal - it's everyone else that is weird really. Let's just get that straight.
2. I often wave at people I don't know - sometimes because I think I know them and I don't, but sometimes just because I find the expression on their faces (trying-to-look-friendly-when-I-can't-remember-who-you-are) really really funny. The thought that they then spend the next few hours racking their brains to remember me makes me laugh even more.
3. I can't bear people drinking from my milk - I'll happily share a sip of anything else, but if you touch my milk, I can't drink it.
4. I have to clean my ears with a cotton bud every morning - not doing so would be worse than failing to brush my teeth (which I need to do twice in the morning, once first thing and then again just before I leave the house).
5. I have saved the baby teeth Mark has lost. I don't know why or what I am going to do with them. By the time he and Johnny have lost them all maybe I'll have enough for a necklace (kidding!)
6. I own 46 pairs of knickers (not counting the pair I have on) - but I am not so weird that I knew that without going to the drawer and counting them.


Tagging the following possible weirdos - Soo, Kirsten, Joanna, Megan, Monica, and Sarah.


Thanks for all the pottery good wishes yesterday - I had a great time - made a pot (unfinished) and a handful of buttons. Marie, the potter, has a huge old dog which snores - listening to him breathe is better than meditation.


And you know that Judith Levine book we were all interested in? Beware of how you get your hands on it - look at the controversy it's stirring up. Judith herself has been compelled to comment...

how many??

geez. Do you wear more than one at a time? you know, to keep warm?

Ok, I'll unveil my secrets too...

Zoe said...

hehehe! the cotton bud thing is one of my "weird" things too, although not every day I have to say!!! I'm always getting into trouble with Mark when I do it because it's supposed to be quite bad for you I believe...I'm in denial.

kirsten said...

ah, thanks for reminding me of my milk-weirdness!

Alicia A. said...

Now that's just weird...


Kidding!
Aren't we all weird, really?!

4Thanks for the suggestion to read Not Buying It. I picked it up at my local library (more irony) and am chomping at the bit to start. Can't believe the "contoversy", but thanks for the link to see what's up in our crazy world.

capello said...

no, i do think it's weird that you knew how many pairs of panties you had without having to count. it's like you had it memorized.

"hi, my name is ali. i own 46 pairs of nickers."

please tell me some have stains and tears, okay?

tiel s-k said...

thank goodness you didn't post a used cotton bud!

i've been tagged by kate too and I'm still thinking...me weird???

Megan said...

How often do you need to change, Ali? Is this a collection from, like, when you were 5?

tiel s-k said...

hey, I just showed my husband your weirdness, and we are both pissing our selves laughing. We think you are funny!

agian twice with the word verification!

Suse said...

Number five is not weird.

But six is.

jojo* said...

Number 2 is hilarious. I'll have to try that one sometime. Hee hee. So nice of you to think of me as someone to tag. Hmm. Wonder what makes you think I might be a little weird? I actually did that meme a while back. It's here:

Sweet Treat said...

Number 2 made me laugh out loud! I am so not going to wave back to anyone I don't recognise instantly anymore! Really interesting "Not buying it" discussion- just saw an interview with her on Ophrah. More irony????

If you are weird, then I am too! Not only do I clean my ears every morning, but my girls too. I cringe at the sight of children with dirty ears - TMI, I know, but it just makes me all icky. And I just can't throw out my daughters baby teeth either. Which is OK, because it took me a month to throw away her umbilical cord stump. Am I totally grossing you out yet? Something to do with feeling like I was throwing a piece of my child in the rubbish. OK, yes, too weird. Thank goodness I didn't think of making a necklace out of that!
