Tagged by a Cat and a Guinness Drinker

Le Chat Qui a Peur wants to know about my weirdnesses. I did this a while ago and the first round can be seen here. But in the interest of being a good sport let me think of some more lime weirdness.

1. Neither of my pinky toes has a full toenail. They are just odd little bumps that grow where a toenail should be.

2. I refuse to buy or wear make-up but I have 4 different moisturizers depending on which body part I am slathering (I slather head to toe after every shower). My face is oily but everywhere else I have very dry skin. In a pinch or when I am travelling I only use two.

3. I'm allergic to bananas and kiwi, and have never heard of anyone else who is allergic to either of those things.

4. I'm right-handed but there are some things I have always done left-handed and it's driving me a bit nuts not being able to do them properly right now.

5. I cannot eat invertebrates, except crab. The whole idea just creeps me out.

Cass Elliot was truly something special. If you get a chance, read John Phillip's autobiography. It's a great book and has a few nice Cass stories in it.

OK I'm still stuck back there at your 30 year old prom date....can that be legal?

I mean, imagine the scenario....a 30 year old male amongst hundreds of underage beauties? Nuh uh.....tell me that didn't happen!

You are so talented and witty! Very good answers and I'd be willing to bet that you just 'whipped 'em out' without much contemplation. I've always wanted to be that witty. So fun coming here!

I have to agree, I love when you do meme's. You always have fun and creative answers.

I had mind altering sex once. I was high and could swear there were garden gnomes on the ceiling. Does that count???
