I am a wierd-o

Amanda tagged me to list 10 weird things about myself. This is way too easy!

1 - I can seal off my nose with my upper lip

Half of our kids can do this, and half cannot.

2 - I have a terrible sense of direction and forget where I am and where I am going all the time. This happens most often when I am driving and talking. I also sometimes feel that I know where I am and know where I am going, but it turns out that I am totally turned around and lost.

3 - I have only 2 bras. And they are both too big. I lost a little weight this year, and apparently half of the weight came right from my chest. I need to buy a couple new ones (bras, can't afford new boobs) that fit, and I don't know why I don't just do it. Maybe I am hoping that I will get my boobs back. Two is not enought. I think I will buy 3. or 4. Someday.

4 - I felt really wierd at our book club meeting this Saturday. They were discussing using the library's bag-o-books, rather than ordering a book from Deseret Book (LDS bookstore). I had read several of the "gentile" book selections, even though they were full of s*x (not like "adult" books, or anything, just regular trade books, but still) and had to let the girls know that maybe they wouldn't be the best options for a Relief Society book club. (The Time Traveller's Wife would have been really embarrassing to discuss with Sister Mohler.) That made me feel a little odd and worldly. and probably sinful. While I am confessing to reading bad books, I should probably mention that I have seen a rated R movie or two.

5 - I was a teen parent.

6 - If Hannah has a baby when she is the same age that I was when she was born, I could be a grandmother in 5 short years. YIKES!

7 - 7 Brides for 7 Brothers is probably my favorite movie. I would love love love to see it on stage! I always felt connected to that movie because I have 6 sisters and our last name is McBride. (7 McBrides for 7 Brothers) I loved watching it as a kid, but it is even better now as an adult because it is sooooo unbelievable! Bless your beautiful hide....

8 - I love cucumber sandwiches. A little cream cheese on a bagle and a stack of thin sliced cucumber is divine. Add some red onion slices and sprouts, and not only do you have the perfect sandwich, but you also have really bad breath!

9 - I could very easily have a uni-brow.

10 - I love to turn up the radio and belt out the song while I am driving in the car. This may be the MOST embarrassing thing a mom can do in front of a 7th grade daughter and her friends. Well, probably not the MOST embarrassing...

I would like to pass this meme on to Mary (one of the 7 McSisters) and Deanne. Please tell me that I am not the only wierd one around!

Love your 7 McBrides story!!!!

My favorite scene is the big dance number that the young fellow does those donkey kicks on the two logs!

Bras are a pain in the hiney.

My book reading has been pretty clean lately (cause I am reading so many classics) but my movie watching is in no way pristine.

I got the movie Crash for my birthday. Rated R.

Very funny!! Thanks for sharing you weirdness. What a cutie John is. You're bra one was pretty funny! I so relate.

Hey, can you share your weight loss secret?!? I noticed that you were looking great,but I had no idea. I think you said you lost 20 pounds on another blog somewhere. How did you do it?

I also love Seven Brides for Seven Brothers! I have 3 sisters and we chose brothers when we were young. "Mine" was Benjamin.

Funny Meme! BTW, I only have 2 bras too! :)

We are both short, have blogs and agree on 2, 3, 4 and 10, we could be twins!

I also only have 2 pairs of bras, it’s hard finding a pair that fit correctly, and there ain’t much here to start with.

I have wanted to read “The Time Traveler’s Wife” for a while. I’ll read it so we can be naughty readers together (just don’t mention it to Sis. Mohler).

I love 7 Brides too and my name isn't even McBride, if it was I'd totally be dancing away naming my kids in alaphbetical order.

I love your 10 weird things!!!

Someone I can totally identify with. I'd like to see 7 Brides onstage too. Benjamin is also my favorite brother (and the only one in the movie who doesn't dance - watch it, he's always in back or sitting down). I love that he ends up with Catwoman. "Which of the boys slept in this bed, do you suppose?"

Nancy said...

I enjoyed my visit...BLESSINGS to you!

Mary said...

"Are you some kind of wierdo?" (from the Captain Vegetable song)

I too can sniff my lip to my nose. Maybe I should save that for my meme (what does that mean?)

I just bought 3 new nursing bras so now I have 4. Sadly, the most bras I have ever had.

Another 7 Brides tidbit from a McBride, not only does Benjamin not dance, he doesn't seem to sing either. Same with Dorkas (Catwoman). They were just there for eyecandy. My least favorite Brother is Frankensense. His facial expressions are way over-done.

Hey, I have read your blog a few times, but haven't commented yet. Does that make me a "lurker"? I don't know much about blogging etiquette. :)
I love the Seven Brides for Seven Brothers! I grew up with that too, (although without the fun name similarity) and that was one of the many things Mary and I had in common right away. That Adam Pontipie, what a charmer...
