Several others on the blog ring have done the 5 weird things about me meme. This is an intriguing one, and I started to do it right away and then I had to think it over. Is it things I think are weird about me? Or things that I think *other* people would think are weird about me? A shift in perspective, eh?

So 5 things I know you'll think are weird about me:

1. I am entirely proud of my belly stretchmarks from having my kids. They are a beautiful, now silvery smooth reminder of that extremely special time. And they remind me also that my body is very powerful and flexible, sometimes I need that visual, visceral reminder when I'm down about how I'm feeling.

2. I love to eat dried seaweed. Seaweed crunchies are my favorite. I can't eat too many because of the saltiness. Better than eating chocolate all day long. My acupuncturist suggested them last year, and I get some whenever I go to the health food grocery store.

3. I sleep with my baby blanket under my pillow. It is pink crocheted cotton, and the cool texture helps me go to sleep superfast. It has one hole which I tried to repair when I was learning to crochet (around age 10), the yarn I used for the repair is bright green. As I recall, my great-grandma made it for me, and it has always been on my bed.

4. I wear my hair up all the time, yet I have long hair. It just makes me hot or cranky or fussy when it is on my neck. It gets in the way when I am gardening or painting or sewing. Why not just cut it short? Gooood question! Don't expect an answer though, I haven't figured this one out.

5. I have about 30 bottles of nail polish and hardly ever polish my nails. I keep buying it though. An old habit? Wishful thinking? Delusions of grandeur? Yup, all of the above.

So there, many tidbits so you'll know just how weird I am....

I'm impressed with how many yes answers you have!! :-)

And I totally get what you mean about the hair. I don't understand they "why" of it either, but I'm the same way when mine is long and yet I like it better around shoulder length or a little longer than I do short. Weird!

I, too, wear my hair long. I know why I don't cut it. I have 2 cowlicks that show up at each temple when my hair is short. It looks like I have horns. The weight of long hair pulls the cowlicks out. /paula

My hair is quite long and I have worn it pulled back and braided and/or up for years. Why? Because it is SO easy to take care of and more importantly - I hate having hair in my face. Hate it. Makes my forehead hurt and makes me annoyed. I think it's more acceptable than it used to be, but that's never bothered me!

I wear my long hair up most of the time too. Braided, bunned, clipped crazily. I can only let it down once our so-called winter sets in. And the nail polish, I only has 7 bottles that I only put on my toes. All variations on Cotton Candy Metallic Pink. It's those Buy 1, Get 1 Free sales that keep me buying more.
