7 Weird Things about me

Rebekah from Diagonally Parked in a Parallel Universe and Kim from Gathering Stones have tagged me for this meme. Here are the rules for this one:

"Simply link to the person who tagged you. SHARE SEVEN WEIRD things about yourself. Tag SEVEN bloggers to do the same AND include a link to their blog. Let each person know that they have been tagged and finally post the rules on your blog."

This should be pretty easy for me - I have been known to be weird at times! So here you go - 7 things:
1) I have never flown! I'm not afraid of it, but the opportunity has never come up.
2) I can't stand to just sit and watch tv or a movie. I am usually playing my Nintendo or reading while I am watching.
3) My family says I eat pie backwards. I start from the crust and eat in.
4) I don't like coffee. I've tried but just can't drink it.
5) I don't like to sit in the sun. If we are at a beach or pool, I will be the one sitting under the umbrella or tree.
6) I often talk to the computer, people on tv and people on my Nintendo games.
7) I make up crazy little rhymes and songs. I sing these goofy songs to my kids who don't always appreciate them and to the residents at the nursing home who laugh at me.
Here are my seven people. I know some of them are pretty weird! Laura, Heather, Terri, Karen, Joanne, Bonnie and per Jennifer Hills suggestion - Mrs. Patty. She doesn't have a blog but she's reading all of ours from church. She is also pretty weird, so she can list hers here! Have fun!

About your comment...
I find it interesting that you live near to Diet Eman. I heard her speak on Focus on the Family years ago, which is where I got the book. I was so touched by her story that I actually wrote to them (which I never do) to tell them how much I appreciated hearing her talk. A few days later, I got the book in the mail -courtesy of Focus on the Family.
And I've really enjoyed it. It's a wonderful reminder of all we have to be thankful for.

I'll bet she feels like it's all so surreal now... It feels so dramatic to read the book, and then there she is, living near you every day. I'm sure back then she never would have thought it. Life is weird sometimes.

oh oh! #6. Me too! And you should fly next time you visit Andy :) It's great fun! And yes, Mari, you do eat pie backwards.

Would you like a PIECE of gum? ;) haha.

Yeah I've heard Nurses tend to talk to themselves alot! It doesn't stop at work does it!

Zaankali said...

oh so now i need to know what games you play. I have a DS and I like Brain Age and Yoshi Touch and Go.

Short Stop said...

I think the way you eat pie is awesome! The crust is my favorite part of a pie, and I often sneak bites of it while I'm eating the rest!

This was SO fun to read, Mari!! :)

Cherdecor said...

That was so fun to read!

My first plane ride was really, really bad. I should blog about it because it is a long story.

You do eat pie funny! Ha! Ha! Like the girl from short stop, I like the crust the best too but I never thought of eating pie backwards! (: I will have to try it now.

Bonnie said...

This was such a fun post ! I will do mine soon ! Now ... I have to say that you don't eat pie backwards as far as I'm concerned ! THAT is the only way to eat a pie ! In fact, it's the only way to eat anything ! I do the same ... I eat everything from the outside in ! That way ... you get the yummiest bit last !!

Renee said...

Oh how fun! Stop on by when you get the chance. There's an award there for you. Have a great week.

Hi, Mari, I came from Saija's. Those are cute things. I talk to the TV, but not my computer (I don't think, though come to think of it, I probably do, and don't even realize it). Also, I sang to people at Wal-Mart too- songs I made up about Wal-Mart, but mostly scripture and other songs I wrote.
I like the picture of Nancy and her husband at the party.

Those weren't too weird at all! Come on now......

About the flying on an airplane----maybe we'll just have to plan a trip to Japan! :) How's that for a first time ride?

Rebekah said...

The center of the pie is the best so save it for last. I eat my pancakes the same way

Beth Cotell said...

Hmmmmm....maybe you ARE a little weird...but then again, aren't we all?

Laura said...

Yes - you are definitely weird! :) But in a good way. I can't imagine having a funner childhood than growing up with you as a mom - although we do get frustrated with you when you are watching TV/movies and playing your Nintendo and then have to ask what's going on!

Pat said...

That's how I eat my pie - I save the best for last!
Consider it a blessing to not like coffee - although it would be good with a piece of pie.
I don't like to sit in the sun either - and my head sweats like you wouldn't believe. That's probably too much information, huh? sorry.

Hey Mari Thanks for thinking of me.haha.I'm not that weird! 1. I hate feet!! Mine are o.k. and I like baby feet.Grow up feet YUCK!2.I freak out if someone touches my neck or even act like they're going to touch it. 3.I'm afraid of heights.I start to cry if I get to high.(once when we drove over a bridge) 4.I like peanut butter but not in ice cream. 5.I can't eat around people that smack there food. 6.Sometimes, when I'm alone in my house,I sing and dance to hip hop music.(I like the beat not the words) 7.After I eat something salty,I need to eat something sweet. I don't think I'm alone here. Thanks for sharing your blog space with me Mari!!See-ya soon,Patty

Terri said...

Are you calling me weird? I'll get around to this but I know I'll have a hard time coming up with anything strange about me.
We all know you can't sit still - we talked to Duane about you while we were in the hospital with him!

Nise' said...

Ditto on #4. Can't drink either. Like the smell of it. I love to sit in the sun! But I do wear a hat to protect my face and hair color!

Joanne@ Blessed... said...

Ok, Mari, it has been confirmed. Both you and Rebekah have tagged me.

Let the weirdness be revealed!!

Remember, you asked for it...

Love, Joanne

Ally said...

This was fun... I enjoyed this post alot. I often talk to the tele too...Havnet talk to a video game yet though...that must be a greater level of communication that I am not aware of !!!!!!!!

LeslieW. said...

You are not wierd, those are very normal things...maybe not the pie eating!;) I make up funny songs all day long with my kids...and by myself too. My mom always did that. I think it's too fun!

The Birds Nest said...

You need to take care of that flying thing. Maybe come with your sisters to SC??
