RULES: Each player of this game starts off with 10 weird things/habits/little known facts about yourself. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 10 weird habits/things/little known facts as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names.

So, 10 weird things about me, you say:

1) I find the concept of writing on one's hand (or indeed any other part of the body) squicky and yuck. It's gross, OK!
2) I make comments out loud about what I am watching on TV in a conversational style way when I am the only person watching and indeed the only person in the house.
3) When I am cycling along, my brain involves itself in thinking in detail about how I will cope in various tragic situations which will happen either during or at the end of my journey (e.g. getting home and getting a phonecall from the police to say my parents have both died in a fire). I wish it wouldn't. Sometimes it does good scenarios, e.g. getting home to a letter from the premium bond people saying I have won, which is much better.
4) I get weepy at bits of Dinnerladies. It's just so sweet.
5) I find hanging out with my parents both relaxing and fun. In particular, I love going on family holidays and family Christmases.
6) I have never broken a bone. As a kid, I kind of wanted to as people would help you with your bags and write on your cast and you got to skip games but despite a few heavy falls while riding, I never did. Actually, this probably isn't that unusual - I expect most people haven't actually broken a bone.
7) I have several times stayed on a rearing horse and calmed it - usually it doesn't take that long as rearing with the weight of a rider on is very tiring!
8) I never bit my nails but I did used to suck my thumb until I was about 12 or 13. I managed to transition this later on into being generally fiddly. I often chew things like pen lids (I've got a cable tie in my mouth right now) and I fiddle with my hair a lot too.
9) Before having my eyes lasered, I used to fantasise about being unable to take my lenses out for some reason and them fusing permanently to my eyes.
10) I don't find farting funny. Tiresome, yes, funny, no.

It's actually tricker than I thought to think of things after a while - I stalled on number 8 all morning. Anyway. I tag oxfordhacker, art_geek, white_hart, bekijane, idonotlikepeas and dyddgu


Pheww!! I've escaped!

Interesting that you find writing on your hand icky and squicky, and yet you kind of wished to have broken an arm or something when young because people write on casts... ;-)
I do the same with the television, though I reckon I take it further than you. I get into proper delusional conversation with the television and I get quite upset (this is mainly with the news). I do it in company as well, which can be annoying for some and worrying for others. In short, television makes me mentalist.
i tend to conjure up really crazy (and often tragic, but always with optimistic endings) scenarios too! not just when cycling heh.

and i wished quite a lot that i'd sprain my ankle cuz i wanted to skip physical training! x=
