tagged, i'm it

many many days ago, i was tagged for the very first time by tania. my mission, should i choose to accept, is to complete this.
id•i•o•syn•cra•sy - a structural or behavioural characteristic peculiar to an individual or group. Write down 5 of your own idiosyncrasies, then if you wish, tag 5 people.
after much thought, i've come up with 5 slightly bizarre facts about myself. here then, i bring you....

the five idiosyncrasies of krissy

Y i must get in and out of bed on the same side

Y i refuse to bite into corn on the cob. i'll only eat it after i've cut all of the kernels off the cob. (in a similar vein, i also don't bite into fruit like apples, peaches, pears. i only eat them after i've cut them into wedges.)

Y when i read a magazine, i don't peek ahead. i start at the first page and read my way through to the end. i even read the message from the editor & letters from readers

Y my sense of smell is almost non-existent. yet strangely, i am able to taste food. there are a limited number of things i can smell: campfires, chopped celery, vanilla (sometimes), and my dog when he needs a bath. that's pretty much it.

Y i don't have a problem with any food mixing together...except with rice. rice cannot touch any other food AT. ALL. if even one or two grains find its way onto another food i have to move it right away because it totally grosses me out.

(might i be a tad OCD?)

that was fun!

anyhow, i hope i don't lose any friends here (not sure if people like being tagged or not) but i'm going to gently suggest a tag to carla, dk, robin, and nadia. i would have tagged erika, but the poor girl has been "it" a few times already this week. and just like tania said, no pressure here, ladies!

thanks for sparing me from this one!!
on a funny opposite note, i HAVE to eat corn off the cob, otherwise its just too wierd for me. if its mixed in something like salsa thats fine too.

Causing me to think on a Thursday morning? Hmmm...

I will get on this, though. I've never been tagged before!

robin said...

Hey Krissy! I played, I'm a little OCD too. Corn on the cob, so delicious but impossible to be even remotely graceful while eating it... Did you see Metric announced a Toronto show for the fall? The purse you knit is awesome. I gave someone a pair of Ratgirl earrings last night, she loves them!
