Tag, I'm It!

I have been tagged by Sarah to share my weirdness with you. So here I am to wave my freak flag a little higher!

1. I have short, stubby thumbs. What does this mean for me? I find it difficult to shuffle cards, play video games and I will never win a thumb war.

2. I cannot whistle. Hard as I try, it is just not going to happen for me.

3. I am a mirror talker like Amber (okay, I got the link thingy to work for Sarah but it's not giving Amber any love http://skywardjourney.wordpress.com/). I have practice conversations in the mirror that I never have with anyone in real life. Weird?

4. I must straighten the covers on my bed before I can get in and go to sleep. They have to be perfectly even. A tad OCD perhaps?

5. I can't count the number of times I have seen The Sound of Music. I love that movie and I can sing a rousing rendition of "My Favorite Things" (very loud and I suspect off-key on the chorus).
There you have it! So, time to play! Tag you're it: Becky, Daiquiri, Nikki (these girls are linked over on my sidebar, I'm tired of fighting with my stupid link button), my husband (he already said no but I think he'll come around), and hmmm, I'm running out of people who actually read my blog for sure.... How about anyone else who wants to participate! Anyone? Anyone?
Feel free to leave a comment (hint, hint)! :0)

Gee...thanks?

Boy. I'm about out interesting things to say about myself after my list of 100 things. I'll give it a try though.

Loving your blog lately :)

Yay your list! Ok...I think stubby thumbs are cute, my sister has them and I know she thinks hers are weird too. Can't whistle, hmmmm that is interesting well maybe becoming a farmer lady will enable you to do it. :-) I think that the mirror talking thing may be the most awesome and weird thing I've read so far. Actually you know "Anne of Green Gables" had her window talking, maybe that is why you do it. Hey maybe you are straightening your covers every night at the same time that I am making sure my toaster is unplugged, wouldn't that be funny? I love the "Sound of Music" too, you should record yourself singing the song and put it on a youtube video so we can all hear you. :-) You really don't seem all that weird to me, just cute! Sarah

yikes...I was afraid of getting tagged for this one. I'll get to it after my parent's visit this weekend.

It was so great to see you yesterday.

Love you, friend!

Okay, I'm a little late responding to this... but I have to say this is a great weird-things list! To find a fellow mirror-talker has greatly improved my self-esteem. We are a rare breed, my friend, a rare breed!! :)

The rest of your list was DEFINITELY not as weird as the mirror-talking! ;0) (Although the sheet-straightening thing came close...)

I can't whistle either!
