weirdos, odd balls, and freaks. come one, come all.

 

You may or may not know this, but around these parts, I like to keep things weird. It's kind of my motto...for my blog and for my life. Be weird. Don't take life so seriously. 

So this morning when I noticed Latrina from the beautiful blog Of Trees And Hues tagged me to share some weird things about myself, I did a few celebratory fist pumps and skipped my way over to get my breakfast. (hey, this is a judgement free zone, people.)

If you're a fellow weirdo, welcome. Let's chat. If not, move along...there's nothing to see here. ;)



I.) I've eaten termites. A few years ago, me, my sister, and my sister-in-law went on a cruise to Mexico. While we were in Cozumel, we went four wheeling in the jungle. (It. Was. Awesome.) Anyways, back to the little nasty bugs. Our tour guide would stop and show us different things. Sulfur ponds, mayan ruins, etc. One of the things he stopped to show us was termites. He said people snack on them all the time, so we decided to give it a go. They are just as you'd imagine. They taste like sawdust....and on top of that, they're kinda hard to chew, what with them squirming around in your mouth and all.

II.) I hate, hate, haaaate the sound of water being poured. It's like nails on a chalkboard. I used to think that was normal, but after mentioning it to people I realize it's not. *sigh*

III.) I use my feet to pick stuff up, all the time. (yeah, I know..i'm weird. )

IV.) I can't handle people's feet touching me. If I'm sitting on a couch with a family member or friend and their feet/toes touch me, I kiiiinda freak out. I just can't handle it.

V.) Sometimes I go dumpster diving. I haven't done anything hard core yet, but I have dug through a trash can or two and managed to get over $60 bucks. (hecks yeah.)

I tag Laura, Amy, Jennifer, and Melina

  2. I definitely can't stand when people's feet are touching me either. So gross! I've never heard of anyone hating the sound of pouring water. Very weird and one of a kind ;)

  4. Omg eating termites sounds like the worst experience ever. You totally gave me goosebumps haha. Crawling around in your mouth!?And I also pick things up with my feet...whatever, we're just talented. But not liking the sound of pouring water...can't say I can relate to that ;]

  5. Oh my gosh, you're so much braver than me. I can't imagine eating something that was still squirming around as I ate it. Eeek! The water being poured thing, though... That must be tough! Though there's a sound people sometimes make when they drink water that really irritates me! Hmm... I'll have to think of some more!

    1. It was definitely not something I'd normally do...I think I was caught up in the "experience." :P

  7. I kind of mastered picking things up with my feet. I mean, why bend down? lol
    And you are way more adventurous than I will ever be. I can't even look at a bug without screaming my head off let alone try to eat one. Kudos, sister! Kudos!

    1. Exactly. Why waste all that energy bending down? ;)

  8. I haven't figured out why anyone would pick something up with their hand when they can pick it up with their foot. And even better, when the door handle suits it, opening the door with said foot (I recommend the karate kick method).

  9. Woohoo, loved this!! You made it so much fun, too. :) I love your unique take on it!

    And wow, those are some really good oddities, Julia! I don't think I could everrrr eat termites, you have a much stronger stomach than I! And I too also use my feet to pick up things. :P I can pick up my dog's toy ball and toss it without ever touching my hands to it, haha. I'd like to think that's a talent. ;)

    So fun reading these!
