So Margi's crazy in the head and she thought that not only could she tag me with this silly meme, but that her pregnant ass could outrun me! ;)

So, here we go, 5 weird things about me:
1.  I love acting like an idiot.  If you read this blog, you know that I love to use colloquialisms and Southern language (like ain't) and I'm a closet valley girl.  Like totally.  Dude.  I think it tends to disarm people.  When people (even my friends) hear I have a PhD, they tend to back off.  When they find out that I'm a goofball, it thaws them out.

2.  I have this OCD thing about even numbers.  Like when I eat M&Ms or Reese's Pieces, I have to eat them two at a time, both of the same color.  And yes, sometimes one goes on either side of my mouth.  When I was a kid, I used to be like this with everything, but I've managed to get it down to candy, for the most part.  I also count things compulsively.

3.  I am the remote control queen.  Most people think guys have the flipping itch, but I'm WAY worse than DH with it.  I also yell back to the TV.  Especially during football and hockey, at which point the language level falls to the gutter.

4.  I get really damn impatient with my entertainment.  I hate getting into a book or a movie and then finding it has a crap ending.  I fast forward parts of movies that I consider tiresome or embarassing (to the characters), and I can't stand poorly done situation comedy or pratfalls.  Not there aren't some great comedies and even some fabulous physical comedians, but if it makes me uncomfortable I hit the fast forward button.  It makes me really frigging grumpy.

5.  Ummmm... not sure what else.  I know I'm weirder than this. Huh.  Well, maybe more later when I think of something.

I can relate to #2 about eating the M&Ms and I'm also a movie and book ending critic.

I'm glad to know I'm not alone in that counting thing. :)

Thanks for playing, hon! *muah*

#2... oh boy, some similarities there! For the longest time I was into adding up numbers (phone numbers, house numbers, #s on signs) & striving for an even sum. I've backed off on that quite a bit, but I do still find myself grouping numbers in my head -- adding, finding patterns, etc. It can be annoying!
