Six Quirky Things about JunkMale

My wife tagged me to do this quirky thingy.

* Link the person who tagged you (done).
* Mention the rules in your blog (doing).
* Tell about six unspectacular quirks of yours (will do).
* Tag a new set of six following bloggers by linking them (will do).

I notice it says unspectacular. Perhaps I will ignore that rule. Or perhaps I won't, if I don't find any unspectacular quirks about me.

  1. Before I met Harmony, the only kind of macaroni and cheese I'd ever had was the Kraft kind. We don't call the Kraft kind "macaroni and cheese" anymore; we call it "Kraft" or "cheesy noodles."

  2. When I was younger, I wanted to learn to play the flute, a stereotypically "female" instrument. For whatever reason, it never worked out.

  3. I am horrible at playing computer games against other humans. It stresses me out because I always get killed or beaten. I prefer to play against the computer.

  4. Breaking the typical man-ish way of dealing with things, I initially tend to want to talk about my problems rather than clam up.

  5. Aside from fish, I've never had meat more fresh than what comes from a grocery store. Hopefully that will change, come Labor Day 2008; our preacher is organizing a pit barbeque, at my behest (more on that later).

  6. I am (unfortunately) quite a city boy; my grandmother-in-law probably knows more about hard labor, building things, and power tools than I do. I aim to change this at whatever chances I get.

I don't know how long this quirky thing has been passed along, so if you have already been double or triple tagged, consider yourself motivated.

I notice that I tagged all female bloggers. Don't we have any man readers except for Harmony's dad? How can I know you exist if you rarely comment and have never linked to our blog? Does this blog not really attract any Y-chromosomal readership? Show yourselves, men!

    I feel quite special to have been tagged! I actually did this one a few months ago. You can read it here if you're interested: http://marriedtotheempire.blogspot.com/2008/01/my-first-meme.html

    Ooh, thank you for tagging me! I love being tagged. I feel like I have posted something similar to this on my xanga before, so I will post it here for the JM family and your readership.

    Finding quirky things about me is not too hard - I'll try not to make them all about hygiene. =) Here we go....

    1) I cannot stand being near public trash cans. I have to find some way to throw trash away in them without touching the lid with my bare hands. If they don't have lids - score!

    2) I do not like sitting on the inside when sitting in restaurant booths - I prefer sitting on the "aisle" seat. The window seat on airplanes don't bother me, though.

    3) I have to start out sleeping at night on my stomach - eventually I will turn over onto my back.

    4) I love generic/store brands of Cheerios MUCH better than the actual General Mills Cheerios.

    5) I disinfectant things every day......but I only occasionally dust things (unlike my mom).

    6) At the Wal-Mart I go to, they do not have shopping cart handle wipes (like they do at Publix) - so I bring my own.

    Okay, I did it. Thanks for the tag.
