Tagged by Nin

Earlier this month I was tagged by Nin at Peachy Hollow.
The Meme is to reveal eight random things about myself.
Probably not too hard to do, so here goes:
  1. I roll little pieces of paper into cigarette type shapes.  It could be gum wrappers or paper straw covers or the paper napkin rings at restaurants, but if it's there, I must roll it.  It feels good to my fingers...that is my explanation and I'm sticking to it.  I will admit that I can control this behavior if I want to....
  2. I have a boy's name and I spell it like a girl's name.  Now get this:  my mother has three little boys and can't wait for the fourth child to be a girl, so why did she give me a boy's name?  I really like my name though.  I just really like it to be spelled correctly, the girl way.  
  3. I bite the inside of my bottom lip.  I cannot help it and I try my best not to.  Bad habit.
  4. Sometimes I count the number of times that I do something or the number of things there are in an assortment.  I am not conpulsive about this, I just notice sometimes.  Like for instance, I like the number six for my childhood family, the number five for my immediate family.
  5. I have always twiddled with my hair.  I make little braids in it and take them out over and over.  I just do this occasionally now and then, I used to be quite compulsive about it, but I have found better ways to occupy my time. :D
  6. I can not stand to wear turtlenecks or for that matter collars or hoods.  Anything against my neck or the back of my neck bother me.  I need freedom!!  I love how turtlenecks look but I will stretch them out and pull on them constantly if I wear one.  
  7. I mentioned this before, but I must wear sunglasses most of the time outdoors.  My eyes are just too sensitive, even if it is cloudy.
  8. I almost died during my tubal ligation operation.  The anesthesiologist wasn't watching and I quit breathing through my nose and my tongue dropped down my throat.  They had to intubate me.  I woke up in the elevator after the surgery crying and wondering why my throat hurt so much when I had a surgery way down below it.  My throat hurt much worse than my incision.  The nurses told my husband later, "Oh, we almost lost her."  For a simple tubal?  Then later that night, a nurse who was supposed to be pushing on my uterus to make it contract, pushed very hard on my incision and made it open (which caused me much pain).  She said to me, "Hurts doesn't it?"  It did.  It hurt so much that I was speechless.  I didn't say anything to her.  Man, I wish I had!

oh i totally hear you on the turtlenecks. and the older i get, the less i can tolerate ANYTHING like that. I even have an issue with crew-neck t-shirts if the neck is too high up! makes me gag just thinking about it!

That is exactly how I feel. I will make a crew neck much looser by pulling on it continually.

I also hate the turtleneck but I love a really soft muffler in the wintertime....

Funny. I'm wearing a turtleneck right now. I use to be the way you are, but I hate being cold, so I learned to deal. I also bite my lip. And, I also randomly count things that grab my attention, too.

6,7,8 apply to me also! Great to get to know you a little better.

Nin said...

Lol! I'm the opposite with turtlenecks...I can't get enough of them!!

I'm so sorry to hear about your surgery drama- that should SO not have happened, you must have been furious!
