I thought this was a familiar theme Penny.. so I searched my archives and YES I have weird all wrapped up already!
due to my current lack of inspiration Penny, I am going to re-post this older weird facts meme and just add some updates in bold!

Weird fact #7- I need distance glasses to see distance. I don't wear them often. They make me dizzy, so I don't see too well. Well... since I wrote this (11/07) I have been getting more dizzy from NOT wearing the annoying glasses.. I HAVE to wear them to drive and see tv. Reviewing this weird fact makes me feel much older!
Weird fact #6- My memory is getting worse, I am convinced I have early onset of Alzheimer's although I can't remember what I keep forgetting. this makes me feel better than the last one.. I actually DON'T feel as forgetful as I had been AND I KNOW i don't have that debilitating disease
Weird fact #5- As bad as my memory is... I can quote movie & tv lines from 20 or more years ago. still true!
Weird fact #4- I startle way too easily. My eldest moved back home 3 mts. ago... yet every time he walks into a room, I Jump a foot hold my heart and say " I thought a strange Man was in the house!" .... ( I'm hoping this will motivate him to find his own apt.) well, i do still startle easily... BUT I SO don't want him to leave, I didn't when I wrote this either! I am so happy that he is settled in a great job and grad. school!
Weird fact #3- Stumped (or just too forgetful to remember how weird I am )... I asked my kids their opinion.... Unanimously they said "NEUROTIC AND OVER PROTECTIVE" ... there maybe some truth comment
Weird fact #2- Is ironic- I never took drugs during my youth because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to have kids( these kids who now call me neurotic and over protective)... Hind sight ( sigh) no update necessary!
Weird fact #1- For someone who didn't do drugs I am pretty paranoid about..... just about everything. I am also Overly sensitive & Self conscious to a fault. How weird am I ? WEIRD!, but happy to report that even these three traits have tamed with aging.. what a difference a year makes!

because I am weird... I don't want to follow the rules.... Instead Please tag yourself if you would like to do this meme and hope u let me know if u do!

I forget a lot of things, too. But I can quote Seinfeld lines coming and going. People say it's selective memory. But that sounds like I intentionally forget certain things.

Thanks for the weird facts lucy, good for me since I didn't read the original post! And thanks for playing my song hehe. About your weird facts, I'm glad you are not so forgetful anymore! I understand the whole startled easily thing, my flatmate was so funny she used to scream when someone walked into the corridor or something, very funny!

I've found my long lost twin, except I was the bad one. I tried drugs, I guess that explains my DNA. :)
