Anyhow - the meme. She gave it a random / weird twist, meaning it's now "seven random or weird things about me" and that's fine by me. She also said something about tagging other folks but I usually gloss over that part.
So here it goes, seven random or possibly weird things about me:
I get a kick out of having my fortune told even though I never really have gone out of my way to have it done. It's more like, if the opportunity presents itself, I take it - I figure it's a "sign". But sometimes psychics say things that make me chuckle with confidence that "that ain't gonna happen" and then something happens and I'm all like, HOLY CRAP. Then I sooth myself with statistics.
But sometimes stats can't calm me down. Like that time I went to a card reader with a group of friends and within minutes she was all over me, demanding what man I knew who would be surrounded by cars, lots and lots of expensive cars, and I was like "back off lady - you're the psychic and I don't know any guy surrounded by expensive cars or even Yugos for that matter". Plus she needed to back off because was wearing waaaaay too much patchouli oil and the mirrored Wayne Gretzky clock behind her head was confusing me, plus she had crocheted - which I keep spelling crotched - doilies all over everything - even quite possibly a cat or small animal because I swear the doily in the corner was moving... or pulsating - so yes, I told her to "back off".
THEN the very next day I ran into an old university friend who I hadn't seen since school ended, and right after inviting me to the cottage for the weekend and I having me accept, he proceeded to tell me that he just established his business of selling high-end luxury car parts and worked out of Bermuda. For the record: he was a psych major at school. Then he handed me his business card that featured him standing among a fleet of luxury cars. Yup, that freaked me out just a wee bit.
And don't worry, I'll keep the next six items on the list, mercifully short
I like peanut butter and bacon sandwiches. I have no idea why or even how I started eating them but it started when I was a teen and I love them to this day.
I also love pickle and cheese sandwiches. When I finally made it to England and walked into a lunch spot, I felt like I finally found a place where people really understood me. Except I couldn't understand
When I was a young girl, I preferred silver to gold. Now that I'm supposedly grown up, I prefer platinum to gold. That's what I call progress.
I'm actually really sad that I finished watching The Wire last night. We watched the entire series over the past few months, and as we hit the final season, we tried to space them out as much as possible. But last night we reached the end, and I'm always sad when a phenomenal television series is over. See also: Arrested Development, The Sopranos, Square Pegs
I get really agitated when the toilet paper is hung incorrectly. Really agitated. Then I feel silly. And despite feeling silly, I still fix the roll because it is hung wrong and it agitates me. This fact is both random and weird.
Planning my child's educational future is freaking me out. That's all I have to say about that. This fact would be something random about me, because I sure as hell doubt that it's weird.
And that concludes "more about motherbumper than you ever wanted to know" and if you want to play along, please leave me a comment and I'll link you up here. TAG - you're it.
