6 weird thinks about me

THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the "6 weird things about you.
People who get tagged must blog 6 weird about themselves 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. There are certain sounds that I hate. Not just dislike, but jaw clenching, blood pressure boiling HATE. Bill thinks that this is extremely weird. Among the sounds are hot liquids with milk in them being stirred, business shoes walking down a long corridor, chewing. Some of them are very specific, others are a little more general.
  2. When I was a child, one foot was a full size larger than the other. The smaller one has almost caught up now , but is still smaller by a mm or two.
  3. If my feet are too hot, I get cranky.
  4. My ears are also two different sizes and are too small to tuck my hair behind.
  5. I can't sleep with any part of my body hanging off the edge of the bed. No feet or arms can be past the boundaries of the bed. I also have a very small temperature window of comfort when I sleep. I often wake up in the night and am just a little bit too cold, but not cold enough so that I know that I am too cold to sleep. Sometimes is takes me an hour to come awake enough to realize that my problem is that I am a half degree too cold. I think that this weird thing sucks.
  6. I need to eat on a regular basis. If I don't, I get the shakes and have anxiety attacks. Bill also thinks that this is really weird. What I think is weird about it is that this only started after I had my first child
  7. Nice yarn make me drool. Really. When presented with really nice yarn, my mouth fills with saliva. I find myself swallowing a lot. In fact, Trish, the owner of the local yarn store has been know to say "don't get too close to that one"
  8. I smell yarn. I love the smell of silk and I always have.
OK, so maybe that last one isn't so weird to most of you, but to those non-fibre people, such a thing is weird indeed.
Apparently I also have a hard time stopping at just six weird things.
I also hate pointing fingers so I'm not going to tag anyone.

I also have finished spinning the roving that Margene sent me through Yarn Aboard .
I was spinning it on the drop spindle that she also sent and meant to continue, but I was caught up in the whorl and pull of the wheel. It is ever powerful and I can't seem to stop. I wondered how people could ever have too much hand spun, but I am beginning to see. I am going to have to come up with a few weaving projects to justify my new addiction.
And while we are on the subject of spinning, a friend of mine is looking to start up a spinning group, so if you live in the greater Fredericton area, have or can get a spinning wheel and are interested in spinning with others, comment, or drop me an e-mail and I will send you more information. My friend has been teaching spinning the past few years and is willing to give pointers and help to anyone who is just learning (like me) or is rusty.

Wow, Jackie, you have some of the most interesting weird things I've seen so far. My question is, can you tell that a hot liquid has milk being stirred in it by sound alone????

jackie said...

Leigh, I can if it is a considerable amount of milk. Bill has a cafe-o-lait (I know I probably spelled that wrong) every morning and the sound of the stirring of that drives me out of the room. Hot chocolate is the same story. There is a bit of a hollow sound to it. Tea with a splash of milk? No problem. Very weird indeed.

You are making me feel so much better LOL - sorry I missed this list when you posted it; I must have been in the kitchen stirring some milk - just joking of course!

I'm trying to come up with some ideas of what might be weird about me since Cynthia has tagged me (the 4th person to do so & I ignored the 1st 3, LOL). I tried to get some clues from my daughter & then my DH. DH could only think of 2 ... but I don't think he was trying & my SD couldn't think of anything. Goodness, she's 33 & should have thought of SOMETHING. I like your list, but you are weirder than me [NOT] ;-) ... this is hard work! Thanks for sharing tho ... m-m-m-m stirring milk in a hot drink has a sound?
