The "Weird Meme" all About Me!

Yesterday I was tagged twice to do the Weird things about me, meme. (Someone must think I am pretty weird) lol.

Soooo, lets see, I did some thinking and some more thinking and I think I have come up with a decent list of weird things about me.

1. When I talk, I talk with my hands. I can, at time become very animated. People always tease me that if my hands were tied I would not be able to talk. But I can talk even if my hands are still at my sides....

2. I talk to myself, and I answer myself back. I can have a full one person conversation! I also blast music and sing at the top of my lungs when driving in my car. (Something I would never force another human to listen to.)

3. I have my own "Barb" dictionary...I make up words as I go. I also use words like thingamajig, thingybobber, and dohickey to decribe things, when a normal vocabulary word won't work.

4. I seem to have a pension for remembering weird facts and small details of strange and unimportant events.

5. I have post it notes every where. If I don't write something down I am very liable to not remember it.

6. I love playing cards, I play almost any game there is, for Christmas one year I got a cd with 101 different card games on it and I have played almost all of them.

So there are some weird facts about me....Now its my turn to tag some people...I tag Chucky, Echo, Kati and Baron Ectar.

#3 - how can people really describe things without these wonderful words?!?! I use these too...and they are a crucial part of my vocabulary!

bardouble29 said...

Em - Glad I am not the only one!

Jay said...

#4 ... I do this too. In fact I remember some of the strangest things from something that happened many years ago. I don't remember where I put my keys this morning, but I know what I had for dinner at a restuarant in San Francisco 14 years ago. Weird huh?

bardouble29 said...

Jay - Nope, sounds about "normal"...for me anyways!!!! LOL

whimsicalnbrainpan said...

Do you play cribbage? I love that game and hardly anyone I know even knows what it is.

bardouble29 said...

whimsical - I don't think I have played that....But would be inteested to learn.

Dorky Dad said...

Would that be a Barbtionary then??

And when you talk with your hands, do you talk with your mouth, too? If so, you have some serious talent.

bardouble29 said...

Dorky- LMAO - Like I said...I am one talented gal.

Anne said...

You tagged Baron! LMAO! Come on, Baron, and no fair reusing the same 6 from before. ...You know I love you. ;)

Everyone's weird in their own way. The more I read these memes, the more I think that "normal" is an illusion.

Craig D said...

I got tagged as well. Now I know what dir_star was talking about when he said, No memes and I mean it!"

The sad part is, after hitting the "publish" button I thought of some even better, weirder thing that I could have posted...

RockDog said...

#2 has ME written all over it...didn't think it was weird though. I thought I was being nice by engaging ymself in casual conversation while we wait for other humans to speak with...

captain corky said...

I'm looking forward to learning new words from you Barb. Teach me the curse words first!

susan said...

LOL You're right, we DO have a lot in common. I can relate to every single one of these...well, except for the card games. I can't stand playing card games...

Kati said...

LOL I just answered, and I've gotta say, I think that talking to oneself is normal. Considering how many people engage in that practice, I mean. ;)

Dave said...

Weird?? Naw! You "ain't" weird! Naw...What I would give to see you blasting out a song like Bohemian Rhapsody while in the car! I would continue to watch you while I drive off a cliff somewhere! I am like you, I love to sing while driving... unless I am at a traffic light! :-)

Echo said...

#2 Yes! Sometimes I have conversations with myself too! Mostly, I like to pretend like I'm shit-talking or having an argument with someone. I don't know why.

#6 You received a CD of playing cards? Does anyone still use REAL playing cards. You know, like an actual 52 card deck?

Thanks for the tag!

Meander said...

i can totally relate to the post-it notes one. i need them just to get through my day. what is fun is to go back and look at ones from months or even years ago.

Kati said...

LOL This was actually kinda fun. Thanks for tagging me! You're right, it is fun to find out new little tidbits about each other.

Baron Ectar said...

Hey you!

I love this one:

"I talk to myself, and I answer myself back. I can have a full one person conversation! I also blast music and sing at the top of my lungs when driving in my car. (Something I would never force another human to listen to.)"

Sometimes I am driving through town singing my heart out and I pull up to a stop light and people will just look and grin!

I already did this but I will tell you a weird thing about me that makes people laugh - I can move my right ear up and down - without moving my eyebrows all day. When I was a kid I use to sit in the front row of church and do it to the guest preachers that came to my dads church just to see if I could make them laugh! It always worked!
