Shelby, my hostess for SP9, just posted this meme and tagged anyone who reads it.

If you're reading this, consider yourself tagged. (Especially if you're Gina, Katie, Beth, JD, Arianna, Regg, or Frank.) And if you do this meme on your own blog, let me know in the comments here so I can pop over there and see just how weird you really are. And if you don't do this meme--no big deal. This isn't a chain letter, so you won't get cursed or go to hell or get a free computer from Bill Gates or whatever.

Note: I did this meme once before, back in June. What does it say about me that I can think of six new things for the list this time? Hmmmm!

THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with "Six Weird Things About Me." People who get tagged need to write a blog entry about their own six weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to tag six people and list their names. Don’t forget to write "You are tagged" in their comments and tell them to read your blog to find out what that means.

Here goes: Six Weird Things About Me

1. I am one of those rare vegetarians who does not like eggplant. (Look at any vegetarian cookbook--especially one from the '70s--and you'll see eggplant all over the place.) For years I've tried to like it, really I have, but I've recently admitted to myself that it's a lost cause.

2. I have never watched Titanic, Survivor, or American Idol. And I plan to go to my grave without seeing them.

3. I am terrified of undertows. Even in lakes (even though I know there's no undertow there).

4. Incorrect spelling, bad grammar, and improper (word) usage drive me nuts in printed matter. It's really hard to turn off the red-pen-wielding editor in me.

5. I lived on a dairy farm in Switzerland for a year during college.

6. One of my oldest and closest friends is someone I've never met. We started writing to each other as pen-and-paper penpals in early 1993 and, aside from occasional e-mails, have largely stuck to that medium. When we first became friends, she lived outside Montreal, Canada; now she lives outside Syndney, Australia.

Incidentally, I am weirder than you are, I think.... LOL
