So Fallen Angel tagged me to list 6 weird traits about me. I don't know if I can fulfill the full 6 but I will try my best. The origin of this lies in this rule :

Each player of this game starts with the “6 weird things about you”. People who get tagged need to write a blog post of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names (Sunshine).

    1. I sound like a white woman with no accent but look like a black woman, even my mother sometimes thinks I am white when she calls my job and I happen to pick up the phone. I also sound younger than I am and often mistaken for my younger siblings.
    2. I carry a book and camera with me everywhere I go and stop to take pictures when I feel moved to.
    3. When I am nervous, there is no infliction in my voice. I could be nervous and sweating during a speech but you can never tell from looking at me. I project confidence.
    4. I am too intune with my body. I can skip my monthlies just by telling my body, " I can't deal with it this month, I'm too wired". I can also tell when I am about to get ill and how long it takes me to recover. Often this also translates with me being able to diagnose other people's ailment to the T.
    5. I am fearless of everything except needles, but alhamdullilah I am getting over that fear these days.
    6. I suffer from an odd form of OCD. I like everything in their place and if its not I can't work. When I come into my work and find it messy, I clean it up before i can begin filling prescriptions but on the other hand in my room its a form of organized chaos. I know where everything is and if anyone moved it but to others its a disaster area.

So now I have to tag six other folks to air out their quirks. I tag:-

  • BlueEpocha
  • Twoadvocates
  • Angry Somali Man
  • Pucca &/Idil
  • Aya
  • Doubting Thomas.

Ps:- I have no delusion as to how many of those tagged will actually participate. Godspeed.

*talking to himself* White woman, eh? I guess so :D. I mean I wouldn't know, would I? How can I know anyway! Unless I hear her speak!*Stops! Looks around*

OK, SD, posted mine

SD, except for #6, I don't see much wierdness. Gee, you guys are all so...normal. *Sigh*

I would think #4 was weird firefly, but maybe not to you.

Twoadv stop talking to yourself and I do believe that if you look in the archives you will find a few audioposts, or better yet ask FOC.

SD, how are you getting over #5?

SleepDepraved said...

Everytime I have to get a shot or have to draw blood, I play psychological games with my mind. I force myself to watch as the needles penetrates my skin and then I systemically tell myself that its nothing but a prick of a needle. Its worked so far and I can take a shot or draw blood without so much as a flinch and my BP doesn't skyrocket like it used to.

Good for you! I'll see if I can do the same the next time I pass out from a blood draw and land on my face.

Firefly said...

SD, #4 isn't weird, it's amazing. I would love to be able to do that!


#4 is cool....I have something similar altho I cant skip monthlies just like that (that would have been handy).

The rest is not that bad.....I guess that says more about me than you....

So I've been tagged okay...I'll tell you right now though you wont see my list till after the exams ;o)

p.s. carrying a book and camera doesn't make you weird it makes you interesting!!

SD, no chance! You posted a voice post in your blog before? That is very advanced, aint it?

Anyway, If you don't want me talking to myself and counting my fingers at the same time, provide me with a link to your voice! :) it is the only remedy that can stop the voices in my head!

^^If I don't want you talking to yourself? I rather like people who talk to themselves. I always tell myself that is the most intelligent conversation I will ever have. To satiate you curiosity look in december '05 and february '06, the latter is a post of me reading a selection of poems.
