Quirky Meme

I was tagged by Daisy with a quirky meme!

Which is great, because I probably have a lot of quirks.

Six quirky things about me:

1) I have a thing with tape. Clear plastic scotch tape. I'm addicted to it, somehow. At my job, in my cubicle there's a dispenser and I have to guess I go through a roll a week. I'm constantly tearing off pieces, absentmindedly wrapping my fingers with it, shredding it into strips, rolling it up into little balls, and making a huge waste. It's a serious problem.

2) I hate the sound of blown raspberries. You know, that farty noise that children make. Bi-labial fricatives. It's like nails on a chalkboard to me for some reason.

3) Every male I've ever had a romantic involvement in has known all the words to "The Humpty Dance" by the Digital Underground. From the guy I first kissed when I was twelve on. Yes, even Brian. Especially Brian.

4) I love the movie The Legend of Billie Jean, and I'm not sorry. Fair is fair!

5) I love smartees. You know, the Halloween candy that comes in little, pastel-colored rolls? My favorite part of Halloween. I lovingly savor each one, knowing that by mid-November they're going to be all gone and I will spend the entire year craving them again.

6) I only dress in black. I am the lady Johnny Cash. This dates back before the punk thing, before the goth thing, back to middle school. I only wear black. I'm in mourning or something, I guess.


Lessee, who do I tag...Jack and Lilo and Belle.

I know, every single photo I have seen of you, you were DRESSED IN BLACK and I finally realized--ooooh, she's back in black!!!

dut-dut-DUT-dut dut DUT!


Legend of Billie Jean!!!! Ohh, you really outdid yourself there. And The Humpty Dance!!!: Those kinds of facts are interesting cultural statements that somehow say something about us--but what? (lol) i.e. All of my husbands/boyfriends have been obsessed (to varying degrees) with 2001: A Space Odyssey, which is why I've seen it 500 times.

almost all of my clothes are black. i wore a pink top the other day to work and half the staff almost fainted.

and you know, i'm gonna keep wearing black until they make something darker.

(word verification of the day - "rcsckcud". i pronounced it "rock's cud" in my head. that's got to mean something.)
