Second Meme:

Five weird habits of yourself:

“The first player of this game starts with the topic ‘five weird habits of yourself,’ and people who get tagged need to write an entry about their five weird habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next five people to be tagged and link to their web journals. Don’t forget to leave a comment in their blog or journal that says ‘You are tagged’ (assuming they take comments) and tell them to read yours.”

1. I almost never use a bookmark, but I can always pick up a book and start reading within one page of where I left off. I've been able to do this as long as I can remember.

2. I can't touch cotton balls with my bare hands. It gives me the chills.

3. I will only eat Heinz Ketchup and Miracle Whip mayonnaise. I don't like any other brands. I will buy scratchy toilet paper and generic shampoo before I'll scrimp on the Heinz.

4. I get up and check the door locks twice every night before I can sleep. My husband doesn't even know that I do this. He sleeps like the dead.

5. The sound of commercials on TV and the radio make me want to scream. I can't stand them. I always mute or turn down the sound when they are on. It's an automatic reaction.

There you go, a little peek at me.

MiracleWhip isn't mayonnaise.. it's salad dressing. (read the jar)And it's the most disgusting thing ever created, lol. There is nothing worse than taking a bite of a burger or sandwich, when you have been asked if you want mayo and you say *yes*, then finding out it's NOT MAYO!!

I'm quite aware that Miracle Whip is salad dressing and not Mayo. Frankly, I can not stand mayo. I think it just this eggy, oily tasteless blob of a condiment. Mayo pretty much makes me want to be sick.
