Tagged to be weird...

Okay, so my friend Tricia tagged me to post 5 weird things about myself, which I thought I could surely come up with without any problems. Now, 5 days later, I still have virtually nothing. Am I that plain and common? Who would have ever thought that I would have wanted to have 5 weird things to share? But, the pressure had gotten to me this week. I have thought about this more than I've thought about anything in a long time (sad commentary on my life, I know). I have laid in my bed wishing that I could both throw up (morning sickness) and think of five weird things about myself. I have polled my family, my friends. Still nothing. So, feeling terribly average yet not wanting to let my dear friend Tricia down, I will post two. I know, I know... Is it even worth the post? Well, maybe not but at least I will get to tag someone else. :) And be free of the burden of unweirdness! So here goes...two lame weird things about myself.

1. I am what you would call hyperfrugal. Cheapness pulses through every vein in my body. I find joy in saving pennies on an item. I get adrenaline rushes from even average deals. I think about it in all situations. Analyze buys continually. Even things that I have analyzed in the past I will randomly reanalyze both to confirm my frugal choice or to discover that an even cheaper option has been found. It's not your normal " I LOVE a good deal" type situation. It's something much deeper. And probably deserves some professional help. : )

2. I am also a non-showerer. (Please don't stop being my friend over this) I just don't really do it. No real reason...well maybe laziness. But, in an average week I probably shower twice. Now, one of the things that allows me to do this is that my hair for some reason doesn't really need to be washed very often. And when it does get to that point, I just pull out all of the tricks that Anna and I discovered in college and that will extend my non showering another couple of days. If I were willing to wear a baseball cap again, I'm pretty sure that I would never have to shower again. Many times what will spur on a shower is that I can't sleep because of my desperate need to shave. I definitely don't do that every time I shower so you can imagine that it would eventually disrupt my sleep. Don't you wonder how Chris puts up with it??

Well, there you have it. Two semi-weird things about myself. But I'm thankful to all of you who have chosen to be my friend in spite of my boring, plainness. It's means so much! lol

Now, I tag Anna Wanamaker and Emily Moore to post 5 weird things about themselves. And you can't take my "I don't have 5 weird things" route. :)

Also, your weird thing number three (and I feel this deserves it own post) is your foot phobia. Even though it's a little better now, I still think it counts.

Okay, I'm in pain from laughing. That was perfect. You need not have felt any pressure - but thanks! Ha! I was the very last person in Jeru's tag list to post... of course.

I envy both the frugalness, and the "can look great w/out a shower for days" thing. When I don't shower - it's bad, people would for sure notice! HA!

I hope your "ick" feeling clears up soon! I'm assuming y'all will find out the sex of Larson #4, right? I still love that story about Kate at the ultrasound when y'all found out Kaleb was a boy. So funny... :-)

I have to say I'm pretty jealous of your non-showeryness. My hair just won't cooperate - it usually looks plain gross by the end of the day even when I have showered. Now if that ever changes, I am so joining your club.
