I'm A Freaking Weirdo. But you knew that....

I was tagged to do this by Stephanie. This should be interesting.

The rules are as follows: Each person who gets tagged needs to write a blog post telling 6 weird things about themself… as well as clearly state the rules. After you state your 6 weird things, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you're tagged" in their comments and tell them to read your blog for information as to what it means.


1. I am extremely creeped out by things that you are not "supposed" to see...such as the insides of things, or things that are hidden for a reason. For example, if I were riding Space Mountain at Disney World, and the lights were to suddenly come on, and I could see the cement floor and the ceiling tiles the walls and all the tracks, I would have a breakdown. It gives me the creeps even thinking about it. Other things that fall into this category would be the inside of our steeple at church, attics, and the inside of an Etch-A-Sketch (if you rub away all the stuff on the screen, you can see the guts of the Etch-A-Sketch, and this really freaks me out.)

2. I absolutely hate mouth noises. When people smack their gum, I go cross-eyed. When my son's friend rides with us and sucks his candy in the back seat, I want to jump out the window. When I stir macaroni and cheese and it makes the same sound, I clench my teeth in agony. I hate mouth noises.

3. There are certain songs to which I react physically when I hear them. Shawn Colvin's "Round of Blues" and David Gray's White Ladder album make me want to bite the wall because I like them so much. When I hear Jerry Douglas' dobro, it makes me literally thirsty. I guess that must be the only way my body can express how much I love these songs... I want to physically eat them. Yeah, okay, I'm a freak. But I know this, okay?

4. I have always been able to visualize numbers... not necessarily the number itself, but (ech, how do I explain this one?) where the number is in space and time. Numbers have always had locations for me, and where they are located on the number line determines how light or dark they are. For example, one through seven are relatively dark, but around eight and nine they start becoming light. Ten is bright, and the numbers increase in lightness through the teens, then they get dark again around twenty. (Gah! The more I type this stuff, the more I'm thinking that I really need some mental help.) Then, the numbers stay dark until around ninety, at which point they begin to get bright again.

5. I was on MTV when I was in 8th grade. I was in a kids' group called Powersource, and we did this song and video called "Dear Mr. Jesus" that was about a little girl whose parents hit her. It was picked up by a Dallas radio station, eventually became the most requested song in radio history, and spread across the nation like wildfire. MTV picked it up, and we ended up one night at a Dallas club opening for Expose.

6. I am a Calvinist who loves Joyce Meyer, Rob Bell, and Donald Miller as much as R.C. Sproul and Francis Schaeffer. Go figure.

Done! I'm tagging:
