6 Unremarkable Things About ME!

I've been tagged by Jen B., and I must tell 6 unremarkable things about myself. I think I probably divulge 60 unremarkable things every time I post, so basically--to you readers--this will be a mini session of what I put you through regularly.

1. I have three moles on my left ankle that, when connected, make a perfect triangle. Just more evidence that my body is a wonderland. (As John Mayer likes to tell me.)

2. It used to drive me crazy that my mom never finished her glass of milk at dinner. NOW...what do you think I do???? Yup. I think that subconsciously I'm saving some in case we have dessert and I need that extra 2 swallows. Of course, we rarely have dessert, and if we did, I'd have been the one to make it, so it wouldn't be much of a surprise, now, would it?

3. For the last three years, every time a season changes, I procrastinate packing up my off-season clothes. When I finally get it done, I'm so proud of myself! But then I leave the big containers in my bedroom, so that I can carry them down "the next time I go to the basement." I'm staring at them right now, in my bedroom, full of the winter clothes I'll start procrastinating to hang up soon.

4. I have never been a nail-biter (except for that one month in Italy, who knows why), but I cannot leave my TOE nails alone to grow. I always peel off the new growth, or, when a tough growth warrants it, I've been known to bite at it.

4. I could go on forever at this.

4b. And I can't count.

5. I used to sleep with my hands crossed over my heart so that if someone put a knife into me, maybe it wouldn't reach my heart. Always the pragmatist, even in my night terrors.

The very official terms & conditions:

Link the person who tagged you.
Mention the rules on your blog.
List 6 unspectacular things about you.
Tag 6 other bloggers by linking them.

Are there six people who even read my blog?? Hmmm. If I just made up names, no one would ever know, right? tee hee...so tempting.

Okay, so I'm just gonna tag some of my nieces: Jeni, Alaina, Brittney, Beyonce, and Mary; and then Jill, because she needs some motivation to update her blog and stop driving me crazy with curiosity!!

Really? You felt the need to tag me instead of just messaging me? I think I should give you my cell number so we can text and I can continue to go without updating my poor, pitiful, neglected, but pretty! blog. (ok. that pretty part is strictly based on my opinion - and it also desperately needs to be updated. but since I am avoiding photoshop like I'm avoiding the rest of the world - it won't get done either)
Anyway - what I'm trying to say is. DangIt. I don't wanna post. But I will. Maybe.
Also? You chew your toe nails? Dude. Go get a pedicure already!!

Hahahaha! Erin You make me laugh SOOO hard! (I'm gonna go ahead and try to pretend I'm not heartbroken you didn't tag ME! ;))

Miss you!

I am wondering if it counts that you have 6 things on your list - just because you have 2 number 4s doesn't mean that I see that 6 up there, lady. ;)

Yes. I'm procrastinating.
B the W - I'll totally Tag that shawna-chick. THAT'll show her.

I never should have tagged you because YOUR six unremarkable things(technically five with an addendum or something) are hysterical and it's making me look really....unremarkable! But, I'm so happy to have something to laugh at that I forgive your refreshing wittiness and embrace my unremarkability.
