Another Meme - Weird Things

AFSis came over and tagged me. The meme is "6 Weird Things About Yourself". I've asked for clarification. Things I think are weird? Or things people think are weird about me? No answer.

So, here goes.............

1. Today is Superbowl Sunday and I would rather read. The vast majority of my friends, coworkers and acquaintances will watch with varying degrees of enthusiasm. My level of point shit.

2. I yell/talk back/cheer at the TV when political shows are on the way other people do with sports. The boys just shake their heads.

3. When I am very stressed and upset I put M&Ms into a bottle of Coke, shake it up, let out as much carbonation as possible............and mainline the caffeine and sugar. Also, I prefer my Coke in a glass bottle, as cold and as flat as possible.

4. As much as I like hanging with my friends, my sisters, my family, SB, my sons.........I really like to drive into Boston, attend a lecture, drive down to East Bay, sit at the bar with a good book or magazine and eat dinner......all by myself.

5. I can't stand to THINK about anyone I am blood related having relations (in the Biblical sense) and I can not speak of my relations with them, either. I do not allow these subjects to be discussed in my presence even if it means I have to stick my fingers in my ears and sing. This of course, means that I am relentlessly taunted with information I do not want to hear. My friends have tried all sorts of logic on me. "It's a perfectly natural thing!" I don't care. "Your sons should be able to tell you anything." They have a father. "You are so close to your sisters." Yes, I am! So?

6. I sleep naked. My parents, my sisters, my children, my friends all wear something. Me? Nothing. I love nightgowns, lounging pajamas, robes, but when it is time to sleep, off it comes. There is nothing more delicious than a nice long bath, followed by tons of body cream and then to slip between cool, clean sheets.

So....there you go.
I was supposed to tag six people with this. But most people I would have been interested in have already been tagged. I enjoyed reading all of them. So instead of six, I have two.

Pia @ Fatekisminy ***** Pia's response is part of a recap of her weekend, which you should read..

Maggie, you have something in commone with my mom. She preferred coke in a bottle. In fact, she swore the little bottles taste better than the big ones. She had a small bottle of coke every day her entire life.

BostonMaggie said...

FbL - LOL, ok kettle.

Googie - I haven't tagged anyone, because everyone I thought would be interesting has been tagged or their blog is too serious. Then you popped up.

googiebaba said...

Thanks for the tag Maggie, though I'm warning you, I'm pretty weird.

Sit at the bar with a good book? That would only be weird if you had it occupying the barstool next to you.

And kept plying it with alcohol...

BTW, what's with the comment block instructions bein' writ in Nipponese?

Hey Maggie, I also graduated to yoga, but then I had the baby, and now I am not doing anything but chasing after him.

I cannot stand to hear ANYONES details re: that. Just never have. Even girlfiends. I am not sure why, and I am not an ice queen re: such matters.

I also love dining alone once in a while, or going to movies alone.

my interest in the super bowl, also shit-point zero.

Definitely the pot calling the kettle black on that one Fuzzy. ;)

Bill ~ what, exactly, is wrong with letting the book occupy the barstool next to you? Good books deserve their due.

I would have much rather read than watched the SuperBowl too. Oh, wait...I did!

Just remember, normal is BORING!
