Weird things about me. I'm not sure where I saw this first (or last) but its worth a shot.

  1. I cannot sleep with the closet door open. In fact I make my husband sleep on the side of the bed next to the closet. I guessing this stems from seeing Poltergeist at a very young age. Let him get sucked into the netherworld. His screams will wake me and give me a chance to get away. :) And when the bedroom upstairs finally gets done, we are switching sides of the bed so he is again closest to the closet.
  2. When punching in a time on the microwave I refuse to use round numbers. No 1 minute 30 seconds here...its 1:48 or 1:23. Why should these numbers suffer because they aren't easy math?
  3. I drink pickle brine (from kosher garlic dills) and I love it.
  4. I have no nails on my pinkie toes. They were removed for medical reasons.
  5. I can fall off a ladder, hit the wall I am painting, hit the ladder again, hit the wall again and hit the floor all without spilling a drop of paint from the container in my hand.
  6. I can identify most brands of paint and polyurethane by smell alone.
  7. I will often skip, rather than walk, from point A to point B. Even at work.

I don't think the paint by smell thing is so weird - I can tell brands of jeans by a 2x2 swatch of fabric. But how can you switch sides of the bed? I would never be able to sleep! Such a fun meme!

omg--i always had that thing about the closet, too! or i did until i was out of college & moved into an apt. with closets that were more like cabinets (it was a turn-of-the-century building). i guess i fugured they were too small for monsters to hide in...

now our closets are really shallow and have sliding doors, so again, they're most definitely monster-proof. (ok, so this isn't exactly logical, but they don't have those hinged swinging kind of doors my childhood closet had--the kind the ghouls were sure to spring out of)
