I revel in unspectacularlessness.

Okay, I don't think unspectacularlessness is a word. I can't find it in my Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary, but I'm going to use it and hope the spelling police don't hunt me down and kill me.

Thanks to Violet Sky, who played "tag, you're it!" with me, I shall now list 6 unspectacular things about me, whether you wanted to know them or not. Make sure you take your anti-boring pills prior to reading, lest you fall asleep from the sheer unspectacular nature of this post.

1. I talk to myself, sometimes incessantly. I really get this way in private, especially when I am writing an article.

2. I hate strawberries. They are the most vile tasting things on the planet, and I just don't get the fascination about them that some people have.

3. I am very physically inflexible, the complete and total opposite of Bendy Girl. If I tried to sit in a lotus position, I would need to be taken to an orthopedist afterward.

4. I get obsessed with a particular style of music, performer, or group and play them incessantly until my ears bleed. (Well, not literally of course.)

5. I got over my fear of heights by learning to rappel from the Niagara Gorge back in the 80's. This led to rappelling off the dorms at SUNY Buffalo, where I was going to college at the time.

6. I have to constantly tilt my head so that my right ear is pointed more towards the person I am speaking to, at least when there is a lot of ambient noise around, as I am 65% deaf in my left ear. Of course, this means I won't see them, as I am blind in my right eye since birth from a congenital cataract.

So there it is. Let's see. I tag:

1. Bendy Girl = Because I have never done her before...I mean, well, you know what I mean.

2. Guyana Gal - To help her get back into the swing of blogging.

3. Bina - Just to prove to her that she does not suck as a blogger.

4. Ryan - So He will get off his ass and blog again.

5. Peter - Just because he is, well, Peter.

Thank you ;-)

No one ever 'nominated' me for just being myself :-)

Love this!!!! :)

Sometimes it's the simple things that give us the most insight to someone we would love to know. ;)

Well, I happen to like the unspectacular-ness of things.

Actually, I like reading other people's tags because I'm...uh...nosy...hehe...and seeing that bloggers are so generous in sharing, I'll do this tag...

Oh...and me too...I'm a bit deaf in my left ear thanks to a quack when I was a child.

Okay, rappelling off the Niagara Gorge is unspectacular???

You do have many stories!

And I can relate to #4. I do the same with books, until I get irritated with the author's writing style because, obviously they weren't meant to be read a dozen one right after the other in a month.

I'm still shaking my head over what some people consider is those little details that seperate us from everyone else. Thank you for tagging Guyana Girl...her responses sent me over here in curiosity.
