Just Five?

People: settle.

I know you're dying to know the Top Five Weird Things about me and I will satisfy that need right now:

1 – I cannot fall asleep unless I read first. Sometimes I’m so tired I figure I’ll drop right off when I turn out the light … only to find myself awake and dismayed an hour later.

2 – I get in food ruts. I almost always order pad see ewe with chicken when I’m eating Thai food. I almost always order pollo en mole when I’m eating Mexican. I almost always order braised beef on rotelli pasta topped with gorgonzola when I get take-out from Noodles.

3 – When I’m feeling particularly enraged at my husband someone, I mutter terrible, insulting things under my breath in another room. If he's gone outside, I snarl them aloud.

4 – When I’m drinking hot tea, I slurp it even though I don’t want to and wish I could stop. It’s just that the tea has to be the exact right temperature of hot for me to enjoy it … which is just slightly too hot … which makes me slurp it a little.* Thank goodness there’s very little risk of my being invited to tea with the Queen of England.

5 – I never realized I did this until my sister pointed it out years ago: I usually leave one or two bites of food on my plate, regardless of what the meal is and regardless of how well I liked it. When she asked why, I told her it was for the leprechauns.

Curious. Three out of five weirdnesses pertain to comestibles.

*I really, really need a little bit of chocolate with my tea, too.

3-- mee too!!
4-- ya know, if you were in Japan, that would make you a polite tea drinker. My friend had two Japanese roommates in college, and it bothered the heck out of them that she never made noises while drinking/eating soup. So if you're visiting royalty, maybe pick another country? Food's better there,too-- or so I hear...

Actually, the meme for you was for 80 weirdnesses. Didn't you get the memo?

I'm working on it, I'm working on it . . . I got tagged a few days ago. Problem is, I'm so used to myself that it's hard to figure out what's weird anymore.

Probably everything. ;P
