When your mind is mush, do the meme...

That hysterically funny Lisa of Niihaus has tagged me, and so I feel compelled to shake-my-meme today. After all, she manages to make me snort my iced tea through my nose in laughter at least a few times a week with her zany blog posts.

Unfortunately, after my workout this morning, my brain was too sweat-laden to think of six things, so I asked my husband to help. A couple of his contributions are below too! (Oh, and believe me, I have way more weird was a matter of picking between them to find the most weird. HA!)

Six Weird Things About Me
1. I have a fear of two songs...and when I hear them I literally will run from the room--the theme song from Unsolved Mysteries and "The Beautiful People" by Marilyn Manson.

2. If I break a dish or something glass, ceramic or china, I will cry hysterically even if it wasn't valuable. I have no idea why I do this. The other day, my daughter broke something and started crying too...I guess this means it is genetic.

3. I have a bizarre white hair that pops up on the side of my nose. I pluck it, and it grows back at a freakishly fast rate. It's white and very tiny so I don't think anyone's noticed it, but it bugs the shit out of me.

4. I have a "gimp" toe. I have broken my feet and toes so many times that one of my little toes looks like it's curled up and ready to die. It isn't that noticeable, unless I point it out. The nail on this toe doesn't grow correctly either, it grows almost straight out at you. I know...where is the circus? I am a side-show freak...

5. Speaking of toes, my husband thought I should mention here that I can spread my toes apart like fingers on a hand. This comes in handy when he tries to get too frisky with me under the covers, because I can toe-pinch him in the thigh until he stops. (mwah, ha, ha!)

6. My husband also thought of this one--I had the hand-eye coordination to do well playing sports and competing as a baton twirler growing up, and yet I cannot hit a tennis ball coming at me. (This is so true. I even took tennis lessons. I will swing and completely miss the ball! And, it doesn't make sense because I am decent at golf too. Go figure!)

Ok, it's tag-a-licious time. I don't want to "bug" anyone who hates these things, but I'll tag away and you just do it if you want to, m'kay? I won't be offended in the least.

Okay - I remember the twirling disaster stories. I am not surprised you can't hit a tennis ball. I'm thinking maybe you don't understand what the words hand-eye coordination mean?? (hee, hee!)

I have a white hair that pops up on my neck. If I find it and I am out somewhere not close to my tweezers it drives me nuts. I have actually stopped and bought a set of tweezers at Walgreens just to attack and destroy it.

Woohoo! You did it!

I love the toe pinch procedure, too. I can actually move my pinky toe independently from the others, creating a major pincer grasp.

And, thank God the hair is white woman! It could be black and curly. And how much fun would that be for the kids and their friends? ;-))

Lisa--my pinky does that too. It spreads even further out than the other monkey toes. My husband is utterly disgusted by it. heh,heh,heh...

The monkey toe thing? Everyone in my family has it except Hubby. When my kids were little, I actually had people comment on their freakish toes. If you find the circus that'll take us, I think we could negotiate a good deal!!!!! :)

Cute! I have really long toes and can pick things up with them. This is very handy now that I'm always holding the baby!
