6 Wierd Things About Me

MidwifeKnits
Only 6? Wow that will be hard to narrow down. But here're a few off the top of my head.....

“THE RULES:Each player of this game starts with the ‘6 weird things about you.’ People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things 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.”

Only 6?

1. I sometimes think I have ESP but it’s probably just the ability to read people’s body language and the surrounding situations very well. I still believe that some people are extra “sensitive” and really do have ESP.
2. I love avocados and try to eat them every single day, which in Alaska is really weird..
3. I love the entire birth process, including the smell of amniotic fluid. It reminds me of the sea. And I can still smell it for several hours after a birth. It does something to my brain chemistry and makes me feel almost euphoric; and sometimes I don't know when to shut up talking about it..like at restaurants...but I've gotten better over the years.
4. I am a keen bargain hunter and thrift store shopper. I have been known to show my tattoo to get a reduced price in flea markets. (It’s a small rose on my right shoulder)
5. I have worked as a organ/tissue procurement technician for organ/tissue donors (i.e. removed organs/tissues from the immediately/recently deceased…very respectfully).
6. I have very eclectic tastes in reading but many people think I’m very academic and find it weird that I love reading “supernatural sex trash” a’ la Laurel K. Hamilton
7. Bonus: I collect old sock monkeys.

And I think everyone else I "know" or actually talke with blogwise has been slapped with this one so I won't be passing it along. Such is life.

I don't know about weird, but some are unusual. Aside from Buffy and Angel, my favorite vampire stories are those few that Tanya Huff has written, though I'm not sure that her recent spinoff book (books?) are of the same caliber.

Being in SoCal, we obviously have avocados all over, including the giant (40ft?) tree in our neighbor's yard. Nothing quite like finding
the squirrels have nearly killed a potted plant by burying a whole
avocado, lol!

Happy New Year!

These are fun -- you are obviously very comfortable around human bodies and all that entails (entrails?) dead or alive. I admire that, but don't like discussing it at restaurants either lol.

I love avocados too, and it's nothing unusual around here.

Sock monkeys...ok, that's weird. :) :) They kind of creep me out, but I don't like clowns either.

Not so weird :). I too, have very eclectic reading tastes. Falkner and Rushdie books sit beside my (collections) of Anne Rice and Stephen King. Mm-m-m... avacados, almost as precious in Ottawa in the winter as they are for you. I can't start a new month without saying "Rabbits" (for luck) and making sure that everyone in the vicinity says it too - that's weird!

I have sock monkey PJs, so I don't think that's weird.
