i'm so weird meme

please, no comments from the gallery, but i was tagged by jay to do this meme.

i list 6 weird things about me and then tag six others to do the same. so, here goes.

1. i secretly wish i'd been a broadway and/or ballroom dancer. i will, just because i can and because i live by myself, dance my way across the house. it all started when i watched american bandstand as a kid and i would try and imitate the moves i saw on tv. oh, and in case you aren't aware of this about me, i'm a total klutz which makes being a professional dancer pretty laughable as a career option for me. of course, i'm not as bad as elaine in seinfeld.

2. if i could play any character in any musical on broadway, i'd want to play gertie in oklahoma just because i'm great at doing the obnoxious laugh. i don't laugh like her really, but it is a little fun on occasion.

3. i love guys with british, irish or australian accents. really, if you have one of the accents, i already think you're cute. i'm also fond of southern accents. this is reflected in my top 5 choices of men to be stranded on an island with: (in no particular order) hugh jackman, hugh grant, colin firth, harry connick, jr., & alan rickman. i know the alan rickman part is seriously weird, but i think it has something to do with the ridiculous number of times i've watched sense & sensibility.

4. i have this weird habit of holding my arms at my sides, bent upwards at the elbow, and then my hands kind of dangle down from my wrists. marko calls this posture "t-rex hands" and mocks me when i do it. because of this, i don't do this nearly as often which is good because it does look really weird.

5. i get freaked out by icky feet. callouses, corns, bunions, gross toe nails--eewww! it's not like i'm fascinated by good feet; i just get seriously icked out by gross ones. if i ever get married, my hubby will have to learn to like regular pedicures.

6. when i get really tired, i rub my face, my ears and mess with my hair. i don't know why, but i do. and when i catch myself starting to do that, it's time for me to say good night and go to bed.

so, there it is. 6 weird things about me. i'm sure there are more...and if you think you know some, well, keep it to yourself. i probably know some weird things about you too ;).

and now to tag 6 others--alex, lizzy, johny b, marko, josh, & max.

1 down, 4 to go

so my doctor prescribed a 5 day dietary cleanse for me. my thyroid is a little off again and my weight is up so i'd started back on weight watchers. my latest round of blood work also showed my blood sugar is a little high, hence the cleanse. today was day 1. i've had 3 meal replacement shakes, 2 supplement bars, and a cup of grapes.

yesterday, i had a very good cheeseburger & fries for dinner. a good cheeseburger & fries is one of my favorite meals. it's not my best choice on weight watchers, but since it's the last thing i was eating for 5 days, i splurged.

i know this is only 5 days and i can do this, but i already miss eating. and it's only been one day. i'm avoiding the food network...and i can't wait til friday.
