Do you know that Tag is Gat spelled backwards?

I'm feeling pretty special, I have been tagged. Heather of the EO tagged me. Quite frankly as a kid I hated playing the game of tag. All that running around and continually yelling, "Tag You're It!" "Tag, No Backs!" UGH. As an adult I still don't like tag, but if i can sit and play then I'm game!

So here are 7 random quirks\oddities about me:

1. I have a row of baby teeth on the top row of my mouth behind my big teeth. There is no explanation. Some would say it's because I'm so shark like, I would say it must be my absorbed twin.

2. I have been to 8 different colleges. I know that must sound weird, but it just goes along with my habitual moving, job hopping and everyday quest for utopia.
The longest I was at a school was when I went to Northwestern, I was there 2.5 years and I only changed my major 5 times!

3. From the time I was born until the time I was 22 I had stick strait hair. My mom had to put curlers in it to give me any sort of bounce. I had my hair permed from the time i was 10 until I was 16. Really bad spiral perms too. When I was 22 I cut all my hair off. My hair length fell right between Demi Moore's hair in Ghost and G.I. Jane. Let's just say it was short. When it grew back, it was magically curly!!! I now have curly hair sans perm solution.

4. I say things backwards, i.e. Point-In-Case or Off-Standish. People think I'm such a clown, but really i am phrase dyslexic.

5. I'm really good at making up elaborate stories about really random things. I always fess up sooner than later, so then it's not bad. Some would calling it lying, I would say I'm bringing folktales back.

6. When I was 17 I had a goiter on my neck. It wasn't as big as the ones you see in National Geographic, but it was big enough that I was too embarrassed to leave my house.

7. When I visited Jim Morrison's Grave in the Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, I stole a letter someone wrote to him. Like he was ever going to read it.

Now I am going to tag 7 people I think have really awesome quirks:

Rachel of Picture Perfect
Kelly of Waiting for a Little Vlachster
Megan of Sensible of Shoe
Bonnie of Not all who wander are lost
Diana of Extra Grace Required
Jodi of Simple Perfect Life
Beth of Talk Without Speaking

When I was 7 my mom had this "brilliant" idea to cut off all my long curly hair... and make me look like Peter Pan. I'm not bitter. I'm not. In her defense, combing all that hair was a real pain (ugh, that pun made ME groan). But the point is, when it grew out it was stick straight. Whattayado? :o) Blessings, Whitney

Dwight would say: "resorbed"

p.s. I am not doing this...I don't even know 7 other blogs to post it to!

Rachel said...

I'm sorry but I'm not doing this either...I'm with sensible...don't know 7 other blogs and don't have the energy to think that long and hard about myself...but I've enjoyed reading others' quirks! I really am not all that think I am?

Rach, You don't have to write your quirks down, because as your BFF I know them ALL! :)
Love ya!

You lost me at the row of baby teeth. I read the other six, but can't remember them because I'm picturing your absorbed shark twin.
