Harvey Made Me Do It

I'm supposed to blog about 5 weird habits that I may have, or the meme gods'll get me.

There's a problem here--I'm completely normal! Good Lord, doesn't everyone fall asleep to a Disney DVD playing on the TV?* And I'm sure it's quite common for people to sing "I'm just a little black rain cloud" when driving in bad road conditions. I know it isn't at all unusual for people who enjoy Chinese food to eat the entrée using chopsticks, but the fired rice with a spoon--not that I've ever seen anyone else doing that, but it's so logical it must be quite common!

Furthermore, I would be very upset if anyone were to suggest there was anything weird about my tendency to eat my french fries with tarter sauce (or mayo or ranch salad dressing). Granted, there are some folks who use ketchup as a dipping sauce for their potatoes, but those are probably the same ones who grew up eating ketchup on [*shudder*] scrambled eggs! (And we won't even start on people who spell it "catsup"....)

Ok, I will admit that I do have one habit that might be considered unusual--but weird? pshaw! However, in the interests of satisfying Harv's tag I suppose I must reveal it: When I set my alarm clock, the minute time must be an odd number, preferably ending in a 3 or a 7 (7:03, 8:27) but absolutely NEVER a 5....

These things always require more victims, although usually my tagees manage to ignore the tag and still sleep at night. Now THAT'S weird...
Anyway, I curse nominate Bob, Pixy, Jim, Victor and Ted. And if they do happen to have any weird habits and aren't afraid of blackmail, perhaps they will play along....

* and by this I don't mean that I fall asleep when watching Disney movies. I mean that in order to fall asleep I need to watch a Disney movie...

Hmmm. Trying to think of any wierd habits I might have. Hmmm. If I think of any then I wont ignore the tag (which I have a habit of doing). ;)

Well, there's the mushing your ice cream and chocolate sauce up with a spoon until you have chocolate soft-serve, but everyone in the universe does that.

Then there's the use of general purpose expressions such as "woof" and "moo" when one is too tired/busy/something else to find a more precise answer to a question. But I'm sure there are a lot of people who do that too.

I believe that is the only correct way to consume vanilla ice cream with Hershey's Syrup, Dear Pixy, so that doesn't even nudge the weird-o-meter. The "moo" thing, however..... ;)

Okay, there is something weird about eating french fries with tartar sauce. But putting catsup on your eggs is perfectly normal.

I eat baked potatoes by dipping them (whole) into ketchup. I do not, however, put it on my eggs, because that is vile and ought to be illegal.
