Both Ali from Cheaper Than Therapy and Katja from Skimbaco tagged me for a meme to reveal 6 quirky things. Except Ali’s was 6 quirky things about Declan and Katja’s was 6 quirky things about me. So, I am ever the cheater and have decided to combine them.
3 QUIRKY THINGS ABOUT MY OFFSPRING WHICH HAVE NO REFLECTION ON ME WHATSOEVER
1. He talks like Dr. Evil half the time.
Well, the be fair, it’s a combination of baby talk and Dr. Evil and IT’S DRIVING ME CRAZY! I can’t say I blame him, because Bryan talks in silly voices constantly, so I am sure the apple is following the apple tree. And sometimes it really *is* hilarious. Lately he is starting to jut out his chin even – I wonder when the pinky will get involved?
2. He can’t watch movies of any kind without crying.
We are those parents. We held back TV, especially violent TV, so he still mainly watches the Wiggles. OK, now Schoolhouse Rock. But it has kind of backfired on us, because he cannot comprehend an actual storyline of a movie and he is so damn sensitive, he worries about everyone and everything going on in the movie. So, those thinking that he picked up Dr. Evil from us letting him watch Austin Powers, don’t. He’s never even made it past 10 minutes into Nemo, A Bug’s Life, Monster’s Inc. He cries through CURIOUS GEORGE, because he is worried that George won’t make it out of his hijinks. The only one he really has embraced is Cars, and we still have to skip the tractor tipping scene.
3. He likes to dance naked.
I asked him what his quirks were and this is what he told me. What can I say?
3 QUIRKY THINGS ABOUT ME WHICH HAVE NO REFLECTION ON MY OFFSPRING WHATSOEVER
1. I can’t type.
I hunt and peck. With 3 fingers. Very very fast. And LOUD. Those with offices around me can attest to this. It sounds like a woodpecker shares my office half the time. (Oh, and thank god for spellcheck.)
2. I am a leg tapper.
I bounce my legs. Not both at the same time, mind you. But each of them, vigorously, at separate times. ALL the freaking time. It drives Bryan crazy. Especially when we are at lunch and I am shaking the whole table and I don’t even realize it.
3. I am John Cusack from High Fidelity.
I have always loved music and in turn, making mix tapes (and now CDs). It’s like an obsession to find the right music for the right person. My friend Stacie sent me the book Love Is A Mix Tape and inscribed it with “to my friend who knows there is a song for everything.” I LOVE. MAKING. MIX. CDS.
Speaking of. Have you noticed it is February 1st?
