I’m sure you wanted to know…

Megan tagged me for a meme. I don’t usually get tagged (I just do meme’s I like) so I’m doing to do this one- it makes me feel special.

6 Non-Important things/habits/quirks about myself:

1). I was a cheerleader in high school, my senior year I ate a full box of Mac-N-Cheese before going to every Friday night football game. I love Mac-N-Cheese. Because I love it so much I have a very specific way of making it and have made Tim follow along. Here are the things that HAVE TO happen: *Imperial Margarine has to be used, no other butter tastes the same and I can tell the difference. *The cheese must be added last, specifically the butter goes first to melt, then the milk and finally the cheese. If the cheese comes before the milk it’s too runny and I don’t like it runny.
Tim actually added his own rule and makes sure the timer is set for the 6 minutes the box says for it to cook- he doesn’t trust my cooking instinct.

2). Any time I’m in the car I have to call someone. I get in this mood where I can’t be quiet in the car- I can go 4 days at home without a phone call and can’t last 5 minutes in the car. My mom, dad, or brothers usually see the result of this need- I make a lot of pointless calls to them in the middle of the day.

3). My funny bone is dislocated. Actually it’s my ulnar nerve. I took a weight training class in high school to strengthen for cheerleading and noticed my elbow was really weird. I ended up getting a bunch of x-rays in which my family doctor couldn’t read so I had to go to a bone specialist to find out it’s not in the right place in my arm. She said once my hand starts going numb a lot I have to have the nerve moved to the other side of my arm. That was 12 years ago and I haven’t had a problem. I found out the ulnar nerve is the funny bone by watching Bill Nye the Science Guy.

4). I have no cartilage in the tip of my nose. It pops in when it’s squeezed between your fingers. Those of you in Oregon know all about it and it’s old hat. I can show you guys in Colorado if you want- it freaks people out. My grandma was unimpressed because her nose did the same thing, that endeared me to her forever- I got her nose.

5). The first CD I owned was Tom Petty. I hadn’t ever really listened to him but the girls in the class ahead of me loved him so I got his CD. I also wore Converse because they did.

6). I can’t stand unfolded laundry. I could care less if it gets puts away, but I must have the clothes folded. I can’t even hang things directly in the closest, it has to be folded first. Right now we have a pile of folded laundry on the end of the bed, I don’t blink an eye. There is one bucket of laundry in our room that hasn’t been folded for a week and it’s driving me nuts just thinking about it. Thankfully Tim doesn’t care as long as he has clean clothes when he needs them.

Whew, I finished my list! I had to think about those for quite awhile. I don’t think I’ll join these kinds of meme’s too often. I’ll stick to clicking on links to make rock bands or something.
