Seven Weird Things
1) I can watch CSI (my favourite show) while eating dinner, which is how my schedule usually plays out, and not be sickened by the bugs, blood, bullets, or broken bones that pop up all over the place on that show. However, if anyone (especially my sisters) start to tell a story about what either of them learned while studying to be a nurse or midwife, I will become lightheaded, nauseated, and need to leave the room. Which leads me to #2 . . .
3) Just a few months ago, I had to go into my doctor's office for a check-up, and I was told I would have blood drawn. Now, I had long since calmed down when it came to blood being drawn. I still become a little apprehensive because, unfortunately, I have horribly weak and small veins and nurses have a difficult time sticking needles in me (please see #4). That morning the nurse just couldn't find a strong vein and asked me to come back next week, after drinking lots of water beforehand, as that might plump up the veins. I walked out to the main desk to schedule an appointment for blood drawn, took out my Day Planner, and nearly fainted. The reception nurse took me into a room and had my lie down and fetched the nurse and a student doctor. The nurse was asked how much blood she drew and she looked at me oddly and said, "None."
5) I think one of the best love songs of all time involves a vegetable singing about cheeseburgers.
7) I am allergic to apples. And bananas, but from what I understand, the itchy and/or dry mouth after eating a banana is fairly common. I have yet to meet anyone else who is allergic to apples.
So now you (all out there in the blogosphere) know the weird things about me. I can't think of anyone to tag, since I don't think many people read this blog. However, if RickLibrarian would like to take up the suggestion, I would be happy to learn more about him.
