Weird? I don't think I'm weird. Do you think I'm weird?

Ok, so Emily tagged me and then my sister thought she had to "remind" me that I was tagged. I haven't forgotten people...I've just been busy. Ok, so actually I have thought about this post for a couple of days. I know I am weird, but I am so used to my weirdness that I don't even realize it anymore. Well, here goes.

1. I love school. Don't get me wrong, I like my job but I am happiest in school. I would love to go back and get a degree in something else. To me, it isn't about how many degrees I have but just that there is always something new to do and learn.

2. I don't care for chocolate. I used to hate it but now, every once in a while, I will eat a little peice. I don't crave it at all.

3. Weird nickname: My husband only has one pet name for me that I can think of...Chief Sitting Bull. He calls me this because I have a habit of crossing my arms when I get mad at him. Isn't it cute?

4. I never planned on getting married. My plan was to make decent money, have lots of friends, and travel. Well, marriage certainly wasn't in the plan but what a blessing.

5. I don't like eggs or milk. Milk is the stinkiest (I mean that literally, I think it stinks!) food on this planet.

6. I am always reading a book. I finish one and start the other but I am never "not" reading something.

7. I wanted to work in book publishing/editing "when I grew up."

8. I have a tendency to forget things, like I will go to the bathroom and then forget to use the bathroom (I do this a lot). And then I will say, "Oh, I forgot to use the bathroom." My husband says that is weird, I say A-L-Z-H-E-I-M-E-R-S.

Ok, so there are 8 weird things about me. I don't really have anyone left to tag but I hope you enjoyed all of my weirdness.

Note: Paul, you are right for once. David and Susan, you're it! Tell us all about your quirks and weird habits!

I really enjoyed reading about your weirdness! How can you hate chocolate? It is my weakness! I'll see you later, Chief Sitting Bull!

Emily said...

Hey Rachel! I am the anonymous writer, me, Emily Sanders. Don't know what I am doing wrong with this blogging business lately!

OK Rach...the Chief Sitting Bull is pretty funny and so appropo--I can just see you now. I'm so used to some of your food idiosyncracies that I don't even think about them. I'm pleased with your interest in learning and books (I KNEW you should have been a teacher/librarian!) Regarding your early dreams of working in the publishing industry--I think that's still a possibility. In other words, I don't think you're a wierdo. And a note to Emily: Don't feel bad about your blogging capabilities. I have to identify myself as "Other" because I started my own blog and can't get into it because I can't remember my password.

Well, I knew all of that already, but you are still wierd, but that is what makes you... well you!I still love you though. You learn peoples quirks when you live with them for three months!!!

Paul said...

I just don't understand how you forget that you have to go to the bathroom. If you forget, usually you end up with a "reminder."

Oh, if you are still thinking about a new name for your blog, about "Chief Sitting Bull's Pow Wow?"

Paul said...

P.S. How about you "tag" David and Susan?

Emily said...

Thanks Mrs. Fletcher! I have a new computer on the way, but for some reason, I think my blogging problems will still be here. Ha! Ha! When you remember you're password, I would like to read your blog.

It's ok to be weird. I heard that weirdness is the spice of life.... or something like that.

It's time for a new post, Rachel. I know you are out of town right now, but when you return you must update. Maybe you will have a good story to tell about your trip
