On this warm and balmy Sunday afternoon,
Cheryl has tagged me .
. .

so, I guess I need to do it, huh?

Back to the warm and balmy... for all of you who are suffering through sub-zero temperatures and ice storms, I hate to make you extremely jealous BUT today it is reaching 74 degrees.Yesterday, I wore shorts all day long and enjoyed a beautiful, warm, Spring-like day. Really, really nice!! (Of course, it's supposed to get down to like 29 degrees in a few days, but for now I'm MAJOR enjoying this!)

Having a really good weekend--fun day yesterday getting some stuff done, great morning at church today, good sports going on (watching Seattle right now in the playofffs), and steak cooking on the grill at the moment--and hope all of you are having a good one too!

Thought I'd go ahead and post my answers to a tag that Cheryl tagged me with. She listed 6 weird things about her and told me I had to admit to mine here on my blog! lol I actually think I did this a month or so go, but I don't guess there's anything wrong with admitting my weirdness all over again!

So, let's see, I guess I'm weird because . . .

1* I take two baths EVERY day and will take three a day on occasion. I don't like showers and will always take a bath instead!!

2* I'm a bit of a science fiction and fantasy geek, when it comes to movies and tv. I absolutely LOVE all the Star Wars movies (don't even want to admit how many times I've seen them) and love all the Star Trek movies and shows other than the original series (that's weird too, I guess).

3* I have an unusual aversion to mayonnaise. Won't even touch a jar and I hide the jar behind other items on a table so I don't have to look at it. In fact, I won't even buy it and Gary has to buy it if he wants it!

4* I have a really strange habit of drinking certain beverages with certain foods and at certain restaurants. I drink Diet Dr. Pepper and Milo's splenda sweet tea at home; I drink sweet tea with Chinese food; and I always drink real Coke with pizza and at fast-food restaurants (I rarely if ever drink Coke classic at home, but I love it out of McDonald's cups).

5* As a child and a young teenager, I used to come up with elaborate lists of future childrens' names, even though I never really aspired to be a mother. Never played with dolls or dreamed of being a parent, BUT I loved the names. So I joke with my girls that I had them so I could name them, and that I might consider having another one just to name her! (Of course, I now absolutely ADORE being a mother and can't imagine why I never really wanted to be one!)

6* I have an unnatural affection for sports. I listen to sports radio pretty much all day long and read all the sports message boards out there (although I know they're crazy!). And--aside from NASCAR and NBA basketball--I haven't found a sport I don't like. I'll watch any football game on (even if it's Northern Idaho vs. Southwestern Massachussetts State. HA!!).

Well, there you have . . . I told you I was weird!!

(I'm supposed to tag 6 other people, but I'm not going to name anyone. You know who you are--if you want to answer them or need something for your blog, go for it!!)

See ya tomorrow! (I will have some pics of Delaney's pink and lime green room!)

thanks for your comment on my "delurk" post! :) I had to laugh at your description of the aversion to mayo!

Susie Q said...

Oh my! My Bill will not touch mayo!! I always joke that it is the only thing in life he fears! Really!

And I too have certain beverages with certain foods. Just has to be that way! : )

And I do not think anything about you is weird. There. Case closed. Now, me on the other hand...just ask my kids. : )

Have a great week.

Love and hugs,
Sue

Cheryl Wray said...

Michelle--Enjoyed finding your blog!Will de-lurk more often! lol
Susie--I'm glad to know there are some other "nrormal" people out there who are anti-mayo!!
Tammy--Isn't it funny how you just have to have some things certain ways (i/e. the drinks and food connections!)? I LOVE all my baths!

Steph C said...

I think this would be a good "BOM" layout Cheryl! And no you are not weird...just unique :) That is what my 10th grade art teacher wrote in my yearbook..."to a unique student..meaning she thought I was weird lol!

Josie said...

Too funny...I totally get the McDonalds's Coke thing. I never buy coke at home...I'm a true blue pepsi girl but for some reason I crave MickeyD's coke...

maria said...

I loved your list and no, you are not weird at all! You are too fun!

Phats said...

Hi Cheryl,
I find your aversion of Mayo comical! :)

Does coke taste different out of a McDonalds cup?

Jane said...

I am so with you on the name thing...I am obssessed with names, lists of names....so at the moment I am in my element trying to decide on names....any suggestions would be welcome!!! :)

Jolene George said...

LOL! You are too funny! I love all the wierd things about you.
I'm in Arizona and it's unusually cold here and unusually warm in states where it should be cold....so strange.

cheryl said...

Amanda said...

you are strange with the drinks with meals issue!!! But, that is why you're loved!!! This was so funny!!

aimee said...

What about Miracle Whip? Tastes so much better than real mayo...

I, too, had a name thing. Especially girls. Funny that I did not have any!
