I've been tagged for a meme

Even though I really don't know what a meme is, I will partake. And while I'm at it, I'm going to tag Organized Chaos (Kara) and Velvet at Calamity Jane to go ahead and do a little meme of themselves and their weirdness! :) love ya gals! If there are any other fellow bloggers that want to join in, have at it!!

I'm supposed to tell you 6 "weird" things about me. hmmmm. I don't know if there are any unusual or weird things about me...:)

1.) I'm hugely addicted to coffee...though that isn't really weird, it's more annoying than anything. I know it's bad for me but....

2.) When I itch my ears, I grunt like a pig....you'd hafta see/hear it to completely understand.

3.) I've had all 5 of my kids naturally...4 of them at home, one of them in the car almost (please refer to July 9, 2007 post). No pain medication, au naturel, yup, it hurts as much as I thought it would and that is why I don't plan to do it again. ever. ouch.

4.) When I was younger (say 14, way too old to be doing this), I used to pose my stuffed animals to take pictures of them. While I think that is perfectly NORMAL, my sister told me to use this one. (please refer to "O my gosh, dork alert" post from Nov. 8, 2007)

5.) I was born with an extra bone in my knee (osteochondroma), which was removed when I was 14, leaving me with a huge scar on my right leg. I'm trying to take a picture of it but it's just not working! another physical weirdness (besides just my body in general)...is that when I was 3 or 4, my bro (Tom) slammed me in the face with the swingset teeter-totter and I have a scar in my right eyebrow to prove the abuse. :)

6.) Every time I eat anything chocolate, I put it on my teeth, making me look like a "dentally-challenged" person. David and Becky love this trait! :)

**Bonus** weird trait....I have always had a "thing" for weathermen (not sure what the p.c. term is for that profession)...when I was quite young...I met Sonny Elliot, Detroit's weather man, while dining with my Aunt Mimi in downtown Detroit...got his autograph and everything. I met Chris Wright at Sam's Club two years ago. We even talked to each other. I saw Bob Gregory at a local eatery (Shapiro's) one day a long time ago...though I didn't meet him. Then I met his son, Kevin Gregory, another local weatherman here in town when I had three kids...he was there with his kids and I asked him if he was one and the same...he talked to us and even gave me his weather predictions for that year (I think it was 1999)...then last but not least, in 2001, I entered a contest on Fox 59 for Cody Stark, their weather dude, to come and knock on our door, come and do the weather at our house and he chose us!! Ha ha...it was funny and quite nerve-wracking....It was so much fun.

Ok, so there ya have it...if you know anything else that is weird about me, that I seem to be forgetting, please let me know. I know there are things I will think of after I post this.

Let's see. You live in a treehouse (not really, but my kids like to call your house the tree house).

You've had 5 children, yet you still look young and beautiful (that's weird! - LOL!)

You're children are amazing, polite, helpful, kind, courteous, loving toward one another, know their Bible, are trustworthy, obedient, not embarrased to be seen with their parents, affectionate, etc etc. In today's world, that is unique and weird...but weird in a good GOOD way!

Love you guys. Get your stuff done boys so you can start your blogs!

Around The Funny Farm said...

I remember you saying when you woke up from surgery the gal next to you had no hair or clothes on. You immediately grabbed your head to make sure you had hair! Crazy that I remember that story but I can't remember most of the people's names. Looking forward to seeing Velvet's post.

I'm so jealous that you had the one and only Cody Stark in your HOUSE! I crushed on him when he was in our fair city and came into my little apartment on my little 13 inch TV. Ahhhh...Cody...
