Since it is Wednesday, I decided to write a few of the weird things in my life and weird things about me, too.
1) I eat kinda weird. My two favorite sandwiches are: A) Peanut butter, banana and bacon on whole wheat, and, B) A whole wheat pitas filled with crispy romaine lettuce, raw sunflower seeds, sharp cheddar cheese, ham and Italian or Raspberry Walnut salad dressing.
Yeah...kinda weird. But both are so YUMMY!
Also, I eat ketchup with fries ONLY. Never with any other food. Just fries. And I rarely eat fries, so a bottle of ketchup lasts me forever.The only time I will eat a dill (sour) pickle is on a cheeseburger.And my cheeseburgers have to have mayo, lettuce and pickle ONLY. Otherwise, it is sweet baby gherkins. Which I LOVE.
The perfect hot dog for me has mustard, a little bit of raw onion, diced sweet gherkins or sweet pickle relish, and COLE SLAW. Gotta have that cole slaw on my hot dogs! Nothing else.
I only eat plain chips. No BBQ flavor, no nacho flavored corn chips, etc. P-L-A-I-N.
I like my doughnuts plain as well. No glaze, no sprinkles, no icing. P-L-A-I-N. Unless they are jelly filled. Then they can have a little confectioners sugar on them.
Picky eater much?
2) I don't watch much t.v. and what I do watch is not "the norm".
I like 3 "network" shows, but I usually catch them in reruns on basic cable or on my computer. House, Bones and, now, Grimm.
I have never watched Glee, Community, 30 Rock, or any of the other popular shows....I don't even know what they are about, except Glee is about a high school chorus (I think).
I do love Project Runway. And Doomsday Preppers. I watch a lot of shows on History Channel, Animal Planet, Discovery, Discovery Science, stuff like that. I watch Deadliest Catch. I do like watching some of the shows on the SYFY channel. And a couple on BBC America.
Same goes for movies. I love historical dramas and documentaries. My all time favorite movies are The Lion in Winter and Lady Jane. I also like really cheesy horror movies.
3) I am not afraid of snakes, spiders, etc. I used to be afraid of heights, needles and the dark....well into my 20s for height, into my 30s for my fear of the dark and I was 50 when I got over my fear of needles.
How did I get rid of my fears?
I met them face on ! I went sky-diving and bungee jumping to get over my fear of heights. I threw away my night light and forced my self to sleep in a totally dark room to get over my fear of the dark and I started donating blood to the Red Cross to get over my fear of needles. Sounds weird, but it worked for me.
There's some of my weirdness.....and if I see any weird stuff to post later today, I will!
