Mara’s Meme of 10

closePlease note: This post was published over a year ago, so please be aware that its content may not be quite so accurate anymore. Also, the format of the site has changed since it was published, so please excuse any formatting issues.

I know that Mara didn’t actually start this meme, but she tagged me, and since I have a hard time saying no to pretty girls, I’ll participate.

Here are the rules: Once you have been tagged, you have to write a blog with 10 weird random things, facts, or habits about yourself. At the end, you choose 5 people to be tagged, list their names, and why you chose them.

  1. I think skin is the most fascinating part of the human body. I could look at peoples’ skin for hours.
  2. I enjoy urban exploration.
  3. I don’t like my toenails.
  4. Disembodied hair creeps me out.
  5. All 5 people I tagged are female.
  6. I have a hard time urinating in public, especially if I think people can hear me.
  7. I talk to myself a lot, but most often when I’m alone.
  8. Usually it’s because I’m rehearsing what I would say in a situation that I’ve imagined.
  9. I’ll never believe I’m as smart as other people tell me I am.
  10. I’m such a geek that, instead of writing each of the numbers for this list, I used an ol tag.

Okay, five people:

  1. LG because she’s pleasantly odd.
  2. McCutcheon because she lives in Vienna and that’s just awesome.
  3. Brynna because she might just be the strangest person I know (in a good way).
  4. Nicole because she comes in a close second.
  5. AWFI because I’m fascinated by her.

  1. Oh wow. Yours are funny! I talk out loud as I type comments so that way I hear how they sound.

    Did you tag people before you actually wrote the 10? It appears as though you knew ahead of time that you were going to tag 5 females.

    I did mine here.

  2. I did tag them before hand. If not for using the ol tag, I probably would have waited until the end.

  3. I think the phrase “disembodied hair” creeps me out worse than the hair itself.

  4. I thought I was the only one who did #8! I’m not as much of a freak as I thought (no comments on that last statement)!

  5. I think every one does #8. I know I do. Maybe the three of us a really big freaks.

    1. I’d respond with a post to my blog, if I still had time to do things like that. ^_^
    2. It’s all I can do to resist going into EWU’s steam tunnels. (I even know an unlocked entrance. TEMPTATION!)
    3. I don’t like other people’s toenails.
    4. When I’m walking to the computer building, and I see the squirrels, I can barely resist the urge to chase them. What’s up with that?
    5. I really miss Fukui. :’-(
    6. I have a hard time urinating in public if nobody is around to hear me.
    7. I talk to myself a lot when I’m alone. I mean, a WHOLE LOT. Like, all the time. Frankly, I find myself just fascinating.
    8. Sometimes it’s because I’m rehearsing what I would say in a situation that I’ve imagined. Sometimes it’s because I’m rehearsing what I should have said in a situation that just happened. Sometimes I’m just telling myself stories (for real).
    9. Other people never believe I’m as smart as I tell them I am. But I am. But you won’t believe that.
    10. Sometimes when I appear to be engaged in a conversation with someone, I’m actually off in my own little world, and my mouth is on autopilot. My internal thoughts are a constant distraction from the real world.

    #1 is a lie. And the cake? Also a lie. But 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 10 are true. As for 9, I never tell people how smart I am. Because they just wouldn’t believe it. ^_^

  7. You know an unlocked entrance to the steam tunnels, huh? I think we need to plan a little trip…
