Six Things

Another O:KMMS post. This was from June 2, 2006. Additional info appears in the comments.

The Set-Up

Post a blog about six weird things and-or habits about yourself. After doing so, you need to choose six people to be tagged. The people who get tagged need to write a blog of their six weird habits and-or things, as well as state this rule clearly.

The Six Things About Me

1. I retell stories. A lot. The same ones. Most often to people I don't know, or don't know well. My specialty (as my wife would tell you, too, since she's heard it a jillion times) is when someone asks me "Where are you from?" I launch into this thing about how I was born in blah but then my parents moved me to blah when I was 8, but I went back to college in blah and then realised that I missed the weather in blah.... Blah, blah, blah. Same goddam story. Except now I preface it with "my wife hates when I do this, but I was born in blah...." Every goddam time.

2. I pluck in between my eyebrows. And sometimes I start pulling at my eyebrows to get all the loose boys out. not like trying to pluck them, just clearing the forest, if you will. And if I find a long one, I have to get it out right then. You know, the LONG eyebrow, the mutant who, when among the rest, you can't even notice, but when you *do* find it, sticks out like Gheorghe Muresan on the Tokyo streets.

3. I have great feet. No tons of hair on the knuckles, no sideways toes, no cruddy toenails. Great lookin' feet.

4. I still try to not step on cracks. Dunno why. It helps me to watch where I'm walking, but if I can, I try to avoid stepping on cracks.

5. When I fill my car up with gas (or any car) the end of the dollar amount has to end in the number 8. *HAS* to.

6. I like the knives in my kitchen in a certain place. If they're not put away to my specifications, I move them. Oh, and I have one certain knife that I use to, erm, cut my cheese. It's an old serrated knife I've had forever, and I use it to cut cheddar. I think it's just cheddar - if I'm cutting brie, I just use a regular knife. I don't buy a whole lot of other cheeses. It's just that one knife...with cheddar. It helps that it's not very sharp anymore.


  1. All still pretty much true, except for the gas thing. In the intervening years, I've stopped making it end on 8. It doesn't matter.

  2. Oh, and I don't care about cracks that much, either.
