I'm it.

I've been tagged by Corina. She said I had to name five weird things about myself, and then pick two others to tag.

I answered a post like this one a long time ago on this blog. Funny story about that - I was new to blogging, and had just "met" Valerie, and she tagged me, but I didn't know it was "me" she was tagging. I thought it might be some other Melissa, because no one ever picks me for anything.

I was wrong. She picked me!

Valerie's great.

Anyway, here are my five things. I may have posted them before, but some of you weren't here then.

1. I'm a pretty bad insomniac, and while I lay awake at night waiting for my brain to slow down long enough so I can sleep, I write letters in my head. Although, now that I have this blog, I also write blog posts in my head. The letters part sometimes serves as a therapy for me to get out frustrations, but sometimes it just makes me more agitated.

2. I HATE washing my hair. Actually, I hate drying my hair. Don't get me wrong - I enjoy being clean as much as the next person. But the time it takes me to dry my hair seems like a waste of 10 minutes. Silly, I know.

3. Although I wouldn't consider myself a fidgety person, I am constantly moving my fingers. Like last night, as I was trying to get to sleep, I realized I was playing a song in my head and moving my fingers in time to the music. My fidgety fingers drive Jason up the wall!

4. Being the nosy person I am, the internet is a boon to me. I can read newspapers from all across the country, even if I have no connection to the place. I just like reading what is going on in other places.

5. I can't whistle. I think this leaves the category of "weird" and heads straight into "sad." Other people act like it's the most natural thing on earth, but I just don't get it.

Ok, so those are my five things. I now tag Sheila and Suzie Q. I only had to tag two, but if you'd like to be next, feel free to tag yourself!

Sorry Valerie - I was pretty sure I hadn't tagged you, since you had tagged me, the first time. I can't wait to see your list!

I was tagged by Corina also. One of my things is that I can't whistle either! I don't see anything wrong with that! :)

Corina said...

lol... i agree with the time it takes to wash my hair... especially since it's so thick!

I write blog post in my sleep.
I can't whistle either
I hate the whole shower/drying hair/getting ready for the day process. Like you I like to be clean, but hate waisting that much time doing it.
