Thirteen Weird Little Facts About Me

1. Before I get into bed I have to set my pillows in the right order. Two behind me, two under my head, one to hug and one at my knees (Yes, I have a lot of pillows!!)
2. I can't sleep with my back to any doorway. I guess if anyone ever breaks in or anything I want to face them head-on. I don't know.
3. I always set my alarm to about 45 minutes before I actually HAVE to get up so that I can have that joy of getting to sleep longer.
4. I can't drive with the steering wheel all the way down. I'm a short person so I have to drive pretty close to the steering wheel, so I think that's why.
5. I make random calls to my friends about the funny things I see driving down the road (They do this too, so I'm not the only one!!)
6. I like things to be symetrical (Pictures, candles, etc)
7. I alphabetize my movies.
8. I HATE to shop. Especially during the Christmas season. Give me online shopping anyday.
9. I usually eat burgers, sandwiches, etc by first eating the top piece of bread, then eating what's in the middle and ending with the bottom piece of bread.
10. I never trust oven timers. My mom and dad have a gas oven, so things would cook quicker in there, so I now have the habit to double check what I'm cooking like every few minutes.
11. If I'm reading I can zone out the rest of the world. I learned this by having an annoying little brother who was NEVER quiet. (I love him now though!)
12. I like being alone. No, I'm not depressed or anything, but I'm a writer, and I love my solitude. (Not that I want to be alone 24/7 or anything, but I don't mind being by myself if I have to be.)
13. I won't eat sliced tomatoes because they look GROSS on the inside.
14. And here's a little extra one, I can't touch foam rubber. It sends chills up and down my spine if I do. Seriously, I even ran from my 2 year old niece once when she was trying to touch me with a piece of foam rubber.

I'm right there with you on many of these, including the pillows, but I do love me some tamayters, sliced or otherwise. I can eat them like an apple. But that top to bottom hamburger eating IS kinda wierd. Great list.

My T13 is up at if you care to see it. 2 cents said...

A great list!!

I am funny like that about my pillows too. I have to have them just perfect before I go to sleep.

And I don't mind being alone either. In fact, I have to have my alone time quite frequently, in fact.

Hope you had a great Thursday!!
