Weird Me

I've been tagged by Mermaid Musings to list the seven most famous or infamous people I have ever met or to list seven strange things about me. I have met a few authors, but I have not actually met very many famous people. Seeing Elvis wearing his gold suit in a 1957 concert probably does not count for actually meeting Elvis. Seeing Michael Jordan return to the basketball court after his hiatus with baseball may not count for actually shaking hands with Michael. I guess that I will have to come with seven weird things about me. Maybe I will be forced to narrow my list down to just seven.

If you would like to complete the meme, consider yourself tagged.

1. I am a transvestite. How is that for starters? Okay, being a female wearing men's clothing may not be earthshaking or shocking. Furthermore, there is absolutely nothing sexual in my penchant for wearing clothes made for the opposite sex. I do wear dresses, skirts, and frilly blouses too.

2. I am frugal. My frugality has partially led to number one. My household consisted of three males and myself. When my sons were junior high and high school age, I figured out that the clothes that they outgrew so quickly fit me fine. I was even able to wear a pair of deck shoes that my oldest son wore only a few times.

3. I do not enjoy shopping. Again, this may be related to both number one and number two. Since I do not care to shop, the unworn and outgrown clothes hanging in my son's or husband's closets fit me in more ways than one.

4. Speaking of closets, I am a closet hypochrondriac. Like other hypochondriacs, I imagine myself suffering various exotic ailments. Luckily for you and my friends and acquaintances, I keep my imagined illnesses to myself.

5. I have two sons; of course, that is not particularally unusal. But, although both sons were born in a hospital, neither son was birthed a physician. My labor and delivery for both babies was so quick that the doctor did not arrive on time the hospital for the either delivery.

6. I rather like spiders and snakes.

7. Maybe my biggest confession on Super Bowl weekend is that I do not especially care for football. Shhh!!!

Hiya. I've been reading through Google Reader but haven't commented in a while - work gets in the way sometimes! I'm not keen on football, snakes OR spiders! But I think many of our snakes and spiders are pretty venomous so perhaps that is why.

Thanks for playing along. You don't sound that weird to me :) I love football, but like Nancy, I admit I'm more interested in the Superbowl commercials than the actual Superbowl itself.

#6 My first labor was fairly quick - 4 hours - but the second one was much faster. My son was almost born in the bathroom in the triage area; I wasn't even admitted to the hospital. The midwife was paged just in time to catch him, more or less, when my husband and the nurse managed to get me out of the bathroom.

Shopping is hard work and then you spend your money. That is double work. However, it all works out after a while.

I picked myself up off the floor after reading the first one. Got back in my chair, then fell out of it again after reading the last one.
If I have a broken leg, I'll send you the bill.

I hate shopping, too. What's football?

ChrisB said...

So what shall we do instead of watching football!

mjd said...

We should blog working on our Bucket List for Fun Monday, eat snacks, and catch an occasional football score.

I do not care to shop either. I don't have anyone to steal clothes from.

I will share all spiders and snakes with you by golly!!!

gawilli said...

I don't care much for football either so I'll probably be getting ready for Fat Tuesday. But, ditto on the spider and snakes!

Joy T. said...

Well if number one didn't get me, number six definitely did!!!! You LIKE spiders and snakes? *shivers*

lisa marie said...

Hey, I'm a tranvestite too! I have 3 sons and I don't really enjoy shopping either. As for the hypochondria - well now, maybe we're sisters, but even hypochondriacs can get real sick too.

And I still don't like spiders and snakes. . . excfept to photograph.

I pulled out my magnifying glass and read number 7. I still love you though. ;)

debi said...

I have fallen terribly behind. I am going to be reading you and Gene tonight. I don't care that much about the GAME either. But I do love the commercials.

Molly said...

I don't either, and I don't care who knows!
