As always, another tag comes up to rescue this blog.

The interesting thing about tags is that sometimes they provide you with a very good excuse for being narcissistic. Probably that’s one of the reasons why I regret not answering a couple of them in the past. (My humble apologies for that.) Other reasons for not answering them include procrastination and, well, procrastination. This tag, however, may or may not fall in the category of narcissism. After all, how self-loving one can be while describing seven weird things about oneself?

So, as tagged by No One, here are seven weird things about me. (At least, these are what I think that are weird. Feel free to disagree.)

  1. I feel thirsty after brushing my teeth.
  2. I have some t-shirts in my wardrobe that I bought with great enthusiasm, but I have never worn them.
  3. I have labelled each step of the staircase in my home as either a “right-foot-step” or a “left-foot step” (in my mind, of course), and I rarely put my left foot on a right-foot-step, and vice versa.
  4. I have a tendency to get confused when I see a “pull” or “push” sign on doors.
  5. I like to eat dishes “derived” from meat (like kofta, kabab, etc.) but I don’t like to eat meat in its “unaltered” form (like a simple korma.) Chicken is an exception, and so is goat’s liver — yes, Eid just passed!
  6. While writing with a pen, I don’t like to place its cap on its butt. I either keep the cap in my other hand, or put it somewhere nearby.
  7. I can roll my tongue!

I tag Stray Angel.

I’m wondering if I should thank you for this one :s At least, it got me writing :)

I’ve done #2 as well. So, there are actually people who can’t do #7? It seems so simple.. As for #6, I’m the complete opposite – I think the cap will get lost or I’ll forget about it otherwise!

Boy oh boy you ARE weird. Hurray! I crave weirdness. Hehehehe.

no. 6 is not a weird habit, it’s smart. i’ve worked out that the cap of a pen actually makes the pen heavier, not adding any weight to your writing but addling your writing speed.
no. 2: again, not weird at all, that’s normal, ppl buy things they never intend to use or buy with good intentions and forget about it etc.
honestly, if this is how you’re weird then you’re only weird becuase you consider normal things weird. :P

A: Hahaha! I was wondering when someone would point that out. But come to think of it, considering normal things weird is also weird, no? ;)

By the way, Akismet thought that your comment was spam. Now THAT is surely weird!

No One: Really? I thought I was the only one who labelled stairs like that!

Stray Angel: I didn’t even know that one could roll one’s tongue until I read about it in my 10th grade biology book. And doing that somehow made me feel proud!

Beautiful Stranger: Hehe! Yep, that’s me. Certified weirdo!

Assalamalikum and a belated Eid mubarak!

#1, 3, 4 and 6 are not weird. Or it is that I am weird too. The rest make you slightly weird but you don’t qualify to being a ‘weirdo’. :D Are you relieved to hear that?

Following the #7 link, the first heading I came across shocked me a little: “Tongue as a food”. :P Now having one’s own tongue as a food is weirdness!!

@#4: It’s the same with me. I keep pushing the door and insist, “I AM pulling the door but it’s not moving!”.

# 2,4 and 6 sound familiar to me. So I am weird too :-)

akismet considering my comment spam wasn’t weird, its a conspiracy. everything’s a conspiracy.

Aysh: Okay, now I get it. I am surrounded by weirdos! :D

Hina: Haha! It sure is, but I am not THAT weird! And people really need to sort their doors out!

Ehtisham: I didn’t know I shared so much of my weirdness with others. Takes the uniqueness out. :)

A: Sigh. Yes, everything sure is. (And Akismet is definitely conspiring against you, because it ate this comment as well. :???: )
