Tell Us Three (3) Weird Things About Yourself

If there are not three (3) things, or, nothing, weird about you, you must post a picture of a spatula.

1. I sort my M&Ms by color and eat them according to numbers, from least to most.

2. If I'm eating plain M&Ms, I always put several blue ones in my glass of milk.

3. I never eat M&Ms from the package. I pour them into a bowl, onto a napkin/paper towel, or onto the table.

Oh, man. That ain't even the tip of that iceberg.

1.) I abhor the sound of doorbells. I've disconnected them in every house we've lived in.

2.) I find it fascinating to weigh myself just before and after using the toilet.

3.) I am extremely good at recognizing faces, but extremely bad at placing them in context. If I've seen you before, ever, I will instantly know it--but I'll have no idea if you're my kid's teacher or someone who stood in line with me at the grocery store ten years ago.

1. I don't wear a watch, so i have clocks in most of the rooms in my house.

2. it doesn't bother me that they all read a slightly different time.

3. Daylight savings is kind of a pain in the ass, as they are all cheap battery powered clocks.

1. I'm a freak when it comes to breakfast. I like routine. I won't flip out if my routine is broken, but I will always choose the same thing. Used to be Wheaties. Now it's cinnamon in hot oat bran and two egg casserole slices.

2. My big toes each point inward at a 30 degree angle as if my feet had been jammed into too tight shoes my entire childhood.

3. I geek out on certain things for a year or so before moving on to the next thing. Now it's planning and gearing up for backpacking. Previously there was a bandsaw, car tinkering, growing tomatoes, etc etc

I can't burp

I also don't wear a watch and have clocks everywhere which don't all say exactly the same time. That doesn't bother me, as long as none of them are slow.

I hate using a microphone and generally refuse.

We have at least one clock in every room.

Counting the clocks on digital thermometers, and the one in the corner of my 'puter screen, I can see seven clocks from the computer desk.

That they don't all show the same time irritates.

Mama passed along a dirty time compulsion that is hurtful and strange. My bedroom clock is sync'd to the time signal from WWVB. I make sure every device is on the network time if possible. I calculate my departure according to when Google maps says I'll arrive. If I am five minutes late to an appointment or rendezvous, I am keenly aware.

Beware of Google travel predictions, it gave me Philly to GA time and distance which averaged 70mph, and Philly to TX which averaged 65mph. Both are impossible.

I always see the GPS predicted arrival time as a challenge. Is that bad?

I hate the GPS. I need it to be wrong.
