Six weird things about me

I was tagged by Kara for this one. I have mentioned many of my idiosyncracies here, so I am trying to come up with 6 I haven't confessed before:

1. I hate oranges. Orange juice, orange popsicles, orange candy, Clementines, tangerines, tangelos ... all of it. Yuck, yuck, YUCK. Gross. Plus I hate the color orange. I saw a scrapbook room painted orange the other day and I swear to god it made me feel so creeped out. Who would want to LIVE in that color? Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww......

2. I don't like large groups of people, crowds, or even large family gatherings. It gets too loud, too bright, too hot, too everything for me. I freak out.

3. I proofread everything ALL the time. I found a printing error in my new Springsteen book, in addition to several typos. I see errors everywhere. It annoys me when people use the wrong word or spell a word wrong (yes, I know we all make mistakes, yes I know even I make mistakes; however, I get very annoyed when catching other people's errors).

4. I can tie a cherry stem in a knot using my tongue and teeth.

5. I am a whiz at organizing things. You would never know this looking at some of my personal spaces. You should see my desk right now. Organized it is NOT.

6. I can't balance a checkbook. Thank god I have joint account now and that lovely task falls to someone else. I took Mr. Brown's accounting class is high school. Debits, credits, blah blah blah. I HATED that class. Aside from the fact that there was no actual teaching involved on his part, I liked him fine. If my husband ever dies he'd better leave me enough money to let some flunky Accounting Major at the bank do my checkbook math for me; I swear on all that is holy I will never attempt it again.

  1. Scott and Kerri live in an orange family room and that is the color of our high school here. I guess you can't move to this part of Indiana.
