Tagged to Confess Weird Habits

Julie tagged me to confess/admit weird habits and again I am willing to play the meme game. Though I admit already that most of my habits seem kind of odd to me so picking out five of them has made me think of both current and past events. Part of the requirement of this particular game is to include the following paragraph, so here it is.

The first player of this game starts with the topic five weird habits of yourself, and people who get tagged need to write an entry about their five weird habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next five people to be tagged and link to their web journals. Don't forget to leave a comment in their blog or journal that says You have been tagged (assuming they take comments) and tell them to read yours.

Here's my list.

I am very klutzy and clumsy in the physical world and have been since childhood. Some examples include - cutting my elbow severely on a black walnut to the point I needed stitches; nearly cutting my hand off when I crashed through a greenhouse while attempting to act like I was Spiderman; falling on my glasses and nearly breaking them while attempting yoga exercises.

I tend to prefer sleeping with the television on, usually with the TV set on Turner Classic Movies.

I often find myself in or noticing moments and places that can best be described as Weird - such as just last night when I noticed the rather normal-looking upper class woman in front of me at the grocery check out was buying a huge tub of cat litter, a case of cat food and a copy of the Halle Berry movie "Catwoman': or the time I went solo to a nightclub in Manhattan and got admitted to the VIP bar and sat next to the midget from "Twin Peaks," for whom, of course I bought a drink.

I often wear t-shirts based on fake places from television shows, like Brak's grammar school, from "The Brak Show" and from the fake Sunnydale High School from "Buffy The Vampire Slayer."

I have only washed my pickup truck four times in 9 years. C'mon, it's a pickup truck in Tennessee, and should always be dirty.

Now then, let me tag five people to play along as well. Tags will go to LA Barabbas, Valley Grrrl, Concha Loca at Stinkhorn Rodeo, Travis In Iraq, and since I got recently Blog Rolled by Nashville Is Talking, then they are invited to play along. If any on you read this before I can email you, then please just jump in when you read this.


  1. Dag yo, you took my tag prospects!

    You dirty truck driver!

  2. Thanks for playing along...Interesting stuff there cupajoe!! Did you follow cat woman home? :0

  3. Sorry about that Jed - I just went with some I thought might
    like to play.

    Julie - no, I did not follow her home, as they would be a
    habit of a whole different (stalker) kind. Though one of
    my brothers did tell me once that he used to pick up
    women at the grocery store - but I have never followed
    in his footsteps!
