I've been tagged!

This is the second time I've been tagged but I'm not really sure if I should do it because I don't have other blogger friends to tag-- usually there's a number of people needed to be tagged and my readers are usually friends from all over without any blog of their own - anyway, the theme is quite interesting so I'm joining it this time. However, dear reader and some blogger friends (to which doesn't probably amount to 6 as the rule of this game implies) Read, and join if you want to.
Here the rules that don't I won't be able to follow 100%.
“Each player of this game starts with 6 weird things about himself or herself. People who get tagged need to write a blog entry of their own as well as state the rule clearly. In the end, you need to tag 6 people as well and list their names. Don’t forget to let them know they’ve been tagged!”

6 Weird Things About ME
I've always assumed that I am a weird person so maybe this post may reveal I am not actually so weird myself or indeed I am really weird!

1. I always sleep with my socks on - summer, winter, spring, fall- europe or asia. Otherwise I won't be able to have a good night's sleep.. it would be a night of tossing and turning, getting up, getting to bed and eyes bored on the ceiling.

2. Whenever I read a book- any kind of fiction even mystery, autobiography and what have you - I start by reading the first chapter then go straight to the ending. I need to know that ending before I start to really read that book. Call it not having self control, weird or crazy but this is how I do my reading. I don't want to die without not knowing what the ending of that book is. A good friend of mine used to love reading books -- this friend was almost getting crazy with this super thick book, being tormented by the story and trying to finish the book despite work and other obligations (that book was probably a thousand pages or so - not sure now. ) I told this friend just read the ending. Friend didn't want to .. next day friend died.. the book still there.. So there you go. Am I super weird?

3. On books again - I have another strange habit whenever I buy new/old books . Some people look at the story and buy the book, some people are intrigued by the cover and buy the book. Others get recommendations and buy the book. Me? I smell the book if I like how it smells, then I will read the summary, if story is good I then proceed to buy it, if not I return it to the shelf . This probaby means I miss out on all those other nice books because of their relatively weird smell.

4. I love the scent of Baghira the cat's front paws- it smells of grass, earth, flowers, lavender, mint or whatever that's growing in my neighbor's garden. Cats are actually clean creatures contrary to the belief they are dirty because they don't take a bath.

5. I am trapped in the 60-80's music. If my life were a film and has its soundtrack, I would be an Adam Sandler film with music from Styx, Boy George, Beach Boys and other musicians from this period. Except for his last two films I think they have an original musical score.

6. No matter how I try to be careful , I always manage to spill sauce, have dirt,oil , glue,ink or some kind of unknown stain on my shirt, pants, sweaters, jackets, coat, bags!!! I don't know what's with me and all those weird stains but they are just magnetized to my charms.

Be the judge, am I weird, or just normal? Thanks imom for tagging me. That was really fun!

Hi toni!
Thanks for doing the tag, it was fun reading about your weird side, hehe. I'm so amused with your habit of smelling a book. So it's: "Don't judge a book by it's cover; judge it by its smell"??? LOL
I love 80s music too. of course it's our generation's genre so.. Love it!
Hm, you and hub share a similarity in being stain/dirt-magnets! Palagi nalang pag uwi nya ang dumi dumi dumi ng pants at shirt nya. hay.

So i guess you're not so weird - normal lang pagka weird mo hehe.

Not really weird.

But then again....

And you call these 6 habits weird ?? I would call it normal. I love to smell my cats fur and have nothing against wearing socks in bed at least in winter ! So be assured I am convinced you are not weird. A pity for the game ! I am back from Turkey where I scandalized poor men in Internet cafes, in Turkey seeing a woman in a cafe and on top using a computer is being like ET ! I should have taken pictures of their faces too funny !

that's weird--reading the last part of the book before anything else. it's like wanting to see the ending of a movie first.

if it were my eldest daughter, and somebody tells her the ending, she will have lost more than half of the fun.

Toni said...

Well thank you guys for letting me know I am really not so weird after all :) Except probably for my book habits that is :)
Sexy Mom, when I watch DVD's somwhere right after the start and getting into the mid part of the movie I go to the ending and back again. I just hate endings, good or bad so i deal with it immediately. Now I'm just not weird but almost a pyscho.. *wink*

maiylah said...

nope, not really weird at all! :)

Not totally weird, but maybe just a little weird. No more than the rest of us though.
