Just A Few Memes

Over the weekend, I finally got around to completing the following two memes.

Meme 1: 6 non-important things/habits/quirks- About Me

I was tagged by Roshan over on Awake & Dreaming to participate in the following meme:

The rules:
-Link to the person who tagged you.
-Post the rules on your blog.
-Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
-Tag at least 3 people at the end of your post and link to their blogs.
-Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Okay here goes nothing.

1. I cannot sleep with my feet under the covers. My feet have to be OUTSIDE of the blankets. (No socks. No slippers. I can only sleep with Naked Feet.) But, my shoulders have to be tucked in. When I think about it, I have really strange sleeping requirements. Besides the blanket and pillows I MUST HAVE, I also have to sleep with a window open. Every. Night. (even in meat locker conditions).

2. When I am making videos, cropping or editing photos, or writing, I move my lips involuntarily in rapid succession.

3. I am addicted to straws & OCD hair twisting.

4. I cannot drive home from work with the radio on. I MUST have absolute silence.

5. No one can talk to me until after I have had my coffee & a cigarette in the morning. (even then its a bit risky.)

6. I talk to myself A LOT. Out Loud. At Work.

Meme 2: 7 Weird Things About Me

(Is there a conspiracy to completely embarrass me?)

I was tagged by Lee from Tar Heel Ramblings to participate.

Here are the rules:
Cite and link to your source (me), then enjoy writing about 7 Weird Things About Yourself, then tag some people & help spread the weirdness.

Without further ado, here are Seven Weird Things About Me:

1. I talk to myself. A lot. Out Loud. At Work. (Fortunately the people I work with are so used to it; they have learned how to tune me out completely. If I am asking a real question to SOMEONE ELSE in the office, it usually goes unanswered. They think I am just talking to myself. Unless I get up, and SHOUT to my co-workers no one even hears me anymore).

2. I like to pluck ingrown hairs out with tweezers no matter how painful it is.

3. I have to check my purse, coat pockets, and make sure the lights are turned off, 5 times (in.a.row.) every time before I can leave my house.

4. I always have a hair tie on my wrist.

5. I get a ‘Groucho Mark’ mustache on my upper lip if I spend too much time in the sun.

6. I use BURN VICTIM lotion on my face to erase the acne scars caused by the millions of Crohn’s medications I had to take.

7. 9 times out of 10, I am known as the girl in pajamas at any given party or event.

  • wow. i refer to you as the blogger in pajamas. i didn’t know why until now.

    i do that hair tie thing sometimes. but then i have to swap wrists. and do you do that ‘if i do something to one hand i must do it to the other’ thing? there was a time when i did that, and i’d love to say i left it in the dust. it sneaks out on weird days.

    Talking to yourself is fine. If you start getting into arguments with yourself you might consider getting some help.

    The lotion issue isn’t weird. It’s a necessity. You need to come up with another one! Just kidding. Thanks, Meleah, for participating. And I don’t see much to be embarrassed about.

  • Meleah


    That is probably because I am in my PAJAMAS in 95% of my pictures ….hahahahahaha…. Oh I am so OCD whatever I do to one side had to be done to the other side. I am a complete weirdo.


    Then I might need some help. I have some heated arguments with myself…in the car.

    I need to come up with another what? Meme? I have no idea how to make one of those. I just play along

    Oh good. Not Too Much To Be Embarrassed about is a relief.

  • I am a talk-to-myselfer too. Especially at work. Someone is always asking me, “What?” And I have to admit to them that I was talking to myself. You gotta do whatever it is that keeps you sane, right?

  • I talk to myself in my head and sometimes I think it’s out loud. I wonder if that counds..

  • Meleah


    My people have tuned me out completely. I have to get in their face to get an answer. They just assume I am talking to myself.


    Its gotta be OUT LOUD to count as ODD.

  • I too am unapproachable in the mornings at work. And who doesn’t enjoy unearthing the occasional in-grown!!!

  • Meleah

    Michael C:

    “unearthing the occasional in-grown” HA HA HA HA HA HA…its such a feeling of Relief when its OUT.

  • Yep, I think it brings out the inner-surgeon in all of us

  • hee hee…gee I am not so odd..very similar indeed! I talk out loud to the computer to the tv…to anything my brain may perceive as ‘listening’…
    Rock on with the pj’s-
    This morning:THREE PEOPLE waiting outside my office door, I looped around went out had ANOTHER smoke and sipped my coffee until the receptionist gave me the all clear on my cell…damn them.

  • Lis

    Man, there’re lots of people out there who talk to themselves.

  • Hehe husband HATES it when I do my OCD hair twisting 🙂
    Also, not only I check my bag before I leave, I may realize something and come back… And usually, before I go for a long trip, I end up driving back to the house 5 times just to get things together before I can finally leave.
    No wonder nobody wants to go out with me anymore!

  • Meleah


    So Im not CRAZY?


    I think thats why we all have BLOGS…now at least we can feel like we are talking to other people.


    I get yelled at my everyone about the hair issue. My FATHER cannot ever make it down the driveway without having to go back to the house SEVERAL times to get something ESLE he forgot. Of course he does that AFTER yelling at all of us to “hurry up lets go”……

  • You talk to yourself and I talk to a cat… hmmm…. the day the cat talks back to me I’ll have to be committed!!! 🙂

  • feet uncovered..and the window open..we should be sleeping together..:))).I’m the same way. but I’m a happy go lucky waker upper even before a coffee and cigarette…which would probably drive you around the bend….:)))))))

  • No, you are sane…the rest of us are crazy! Buh-wah-hahahahaha!!!

  • Geez, Meleah, you’re right, you have some really peculiar sleeping habits … LOL!

  • I talk to myself too, sometimes I even reply. Also love plucking out those pesky hairs. Me and my tweezers are inseparable.

  • Meleah


    ha ha ha ha ha ha


    dood. I cant believe that we sleep the same. I dont know any one who sleeps all crazy like I do.


    Yes…but I think we are ALL crazy.


    I know. I sleep totally bizarre.


    I love my tweezers. So Much.

  • Now I’m a little scared of you. No, kidding.

    I love the talking to yourself bit! I only think to myself or sing song lyrics in a barely audible volume and then when its time for a real scream in the song, I do that more loudly! Normally scaring the pants of people sitting next to me. I also do little air guitar movements when I listen to my ipod on the way to work and sometimes at work.

    I find it odd that u can’t have your feet covered. Almost everyone I know like their feet covered.

  • Meleah

    Dood. I am nuts. The End!

    (yes feet ALWAYS out)

  • Your dad and I should be neighbors.
    We wear masks when someone is sick, we always forget something when we are going to leave (and yes, yell “hurry up” to others) 🙂

    PS: Now I know I’m not alone! Woohoo!

  • SOOOO with you on the foot thing, although I’m more no socks, one foot out. Plus, I love the window open and the heat blasting on a cold night.

    And I may not take a cigarette, but I need at least a solid half-hour before holding a conversation. Thank God there are no people in my morning shower (well, actually, maybe I’d be a little less grumpy if there were…)

  • Meleah


    You and my father are VERY much alike. Thats probably why I *love* you.


    Yeah, I wouldn’t mind someone In The Shower (every once in a while!)
