9 Weird Things meme

I have been tagged for a meme by Gail at Hambones. I'm doing this during class...so a recipe post will come later today! Okay, the meme is 9 weird things about me. Here goes...

1. The middle toe on my right food is smaller than all the others...it looks like it only has one joint. Okay, looks weirder than it sounds!

2. I (like Gail) like soggy cereal.
3. I'm from the south but HATE sweet tea!
4. I DESPISE stink bugs but they seem to like me...I've been ATTACKED while picking blueberries!
5. I'm a Cubs fan...if you know baseball, you know that's wierd...especially since I don't live in Chicago!
6. When I was little, I liked to mush up cake and mix it together with the ice cream. Mama told me it was gross and tried to stop me...I usually figured out a way to do it anyway.
7. I think that almond extract is gross but love almonds.
8. I can't snap my fingers or whistle. Well, I can whistle one note but that's all!
9. Raw pork (especially loin cut) grosses me out, yet I'm going to be a doctor! Beleive it or not, doctors do get grossed out, they just learn to hide it well.

I tag Erika, VeuveClicquot, and Peabody. If anyone else wants to participate, feel free! If I tagged you and you can't or don't want to do this, no pressure! Also, feel free to make it as "foodie" or not as you want.

It's taken me years to get over not liking almond extract due to a "gross out" drink I made when I was little. Thankfully, processed almonds don't taste like almond extract...but if you're ever fortunate to eat one fresh off a tree, they DO taste like almond extract!

Okay, here are 9 things:
1. It really bugs me when intelligent people misspell words like "weird."

1a. Also, dislike misuse of "there", "their" and "they're" and confusion of "mute" and "moot".

2. I don't take 10 minutes to grade a set of papers, but will spend 30 minutes of doing nothing to avoid grading them.

3. I like standing in front of the TV to watch it (so does Claire!).

4. Pork 'n' bean sandwiches, anyone?

5. I have bilateral mandibular torii.

6. I can roll my tongue but cannot roll my "r"'s. also, can touch my nose with my tongue.

7. Write left, throw right.

8. A southern boy who didn't like grits. I will eat them at Waffle House or at my brother's house, now. That's it!

9. Wear dress shirts until my wife or daughter shame me into discarding them because they are 10 years old and threadbare.

Claire I'm glad you did it! Good answers......and I meant to tell you to make yours foodie! But I'm just now getting back to the computer and you're already done.
I'm glad to know I'm not the only person that likes soggy cereal! And the cake/ice cream thing sounds good.
Have a good weekend.

Also not a fan of almond extract...my mom loves it and always sneaks it into cookies...yuck.

Taylor - Even if they do taste like extract off the tree, would wouldn't at least want to try one that fresh!

Daddy - So very sorry! Thanks for pointing that out...fixed! I don't stand in front of the TV, it drives ME crazy when you do it! Pork and beans???? Ick! BTW, are you going to post things on this blog you've created?

Gail - I probably could have done more foodie things, but I figured I'd mix it up! More fun that way.

Peabody - I hate it when I bite into something and it has almond extract in it that I wasn't expecting...I just want to spit it out of my mouth! Glad to know I'm not alone!

Ooh, good answers to that one! Love that you mush your cake up with the ice cream. I like to stir stir stir my ice cream sometimes till it's soft and mushy :)

Pork doesn't really gross me out, but I find the older I get, the more red meat (and the blood that oozes out) does gross me out some. Good thing I'm not going to be a doctor, huh?! :)

Have a wonderful day!!!
