6 Weird Things About Me

I've been tagged!

Of course, nothing about me seems weird to me, since it's me. Let's see what I can come up with that might seem weird to someone else.....

1. Most of the time I sleep sitting up. From years of allergies and asthma, I have a hard time breathing when lying flat.

2. I'm terrified of going to the dentist. I realize that lots of people are scared of dentist visits, but my blood pressure has gone so high (it's normally very low) that they've had to wait 45 minutes before working on me.

3. I walk around with a book in hand all the time; even if I know I won't have time to read it. (Just think of Linus and his blue blanket.)

4. I have to read before I go to sleep. Sometimes it's only a few minutes, but I need to switch off before trying to sleep and this is the only way.

5. I considered the cheesy sci-fi tv show Lost in Space scary when I was young.

6. You know how some kids want to be teachers or firemen when they grow up? I wanted to be a nun. Mom told me that Methodists don't have nuns.... (I totally blame movies like The Trouble with Angels and The Singing Nun and tv shows like The Flying Nun.) Since I couldn't be a nun, I wanted to be an Air Force pilot. Then I found out that you couldn't wear glasses and be an Air Force pilot. So I'm an accountant instead?

I'm not tagging anyone (just because).

Nun to Air Force Pilot to Accountant. Now that's some transition!

Nice to know more about you.

I have wanted to do this meme for so long, but every time I read someone else's I find something on their list I can identify with, so I keep on running out of "weird" things.

I totally understand about the dentist- it's called nitrous oxide and it solved all my problems.
I also read before bed, even if I'm dead tired.

I agree with Lorraine - two words: Laughing. Gas.

Hmmmm...not too weird at all!

The Trouble With Angesl! I loved that movie. And Lost in Space was scary. Then.

Having a book at all times can't possibly be weird. Maybe I left something off my list? ;)
