Thanks to Blair for tagging me. It’s taken me less time than usual to get around to this meme, so that’s gotta be noteworthy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Six Things About Me You May/May Not Know
1. I am a major geek. MAJOR. I like Star Trek, Star Wars, Buffy, comics, computers — you name it, I probably like it.

2. Claustrophobia, thy name is Mary. I am incredibly claustrophobic. I’ve been known to wake up in a panic at night because I’ve managed to get the blankets wrapped around myself in such a way that I feel trapped. Large groups of people have the same effect, which is why I tend to avoid places like the mall during the holidays.

3. I’m an absent-minded correspondent. (OK, some of you already know this. *cough* Christi *cough*) I tend to fall off on my side of the conversation and finally remember I need to respond about a month later. It’s the downside of multitasking — some things require a singular effort and I put them off until I have the time to focus on just one thing. Sadly, that takes a while.

4. This one probably makes me an awful person: I’m not so much about the forgiving. It’s usually a one-shot deal with me. Blow it and that’s it; game over. And I’m not big on that whole, “well, it’s family” as an excuse to put up with stuff. Just because we’re related doesn’t mean you get to crap on me.

5. I will watch the same movies over and over again. I’ll even cry at all the same parts. To wit: Field of Dreams, A League of Their Own, The Notebook (shut up!), Steel Magnolias, Fried Green Tomatoes.

6.ย In my head, I’m closer to 25 than 40. And I have a hard time reconciling the two. Seriously — I can’t be almost 40 years old. Good grief — I watch Gossip Girl!

I’m going to tag some new folks: Amy, Mandy, Octamom, Yvonne and Stacerella.

  1. Hehehe, we share the same claustrophoia issues lol. I’m the same with the blankets and even if the kids lay on me around my head I feel like I’m suffocating and need to get out! I’m the same with big crowds too. If I can’t easily move about then I stress out big time!!! I know what it’s like forgetting things so I understand ๐Ÿ˜‰ Tonight I just cried because I misplaced my Avon return paper and cried for about 15 minutes. DH found it immediately even though I looked in the same place TWICE! Some days I really feel I am losing it lol. #4 I go back and forth on. It’s hard for me in sooooooo many ways! #6, I am the same! I still enjoy those ‘young’ shows and just this morning I was having a ‘naughty’ dream about David Archuleta ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Oh Mary, once again I am not surprised! We really are so much a like!! I am right there with you on all of these except #2. We really do have to get together someday. I am sure we would become instant friends and have a blast comparing notes. Not to mention, can you imagine what kind of trouble we could get into if we went fabric shopping together!

    Dawns last blog post..My Little Fashionista!

  3. Wow I totally agree with #5. The one that always gets me is A Walk To Remember. I start crying pretty much right away because I know the plot too well!

  4. Oh yeah…5 and 6? I’m hearing you on those…also, I try to avoid malls, but it’s because all the craziness makes me feel overstimulated and then I just want to curl up in a ball…

  5. My room-mate and I in College would watch the same movies over and over and over again. For weeks at a time then we would switch the movie. And I love gossip girl.

  6. Re #6: I knew I was getting older when they came out with a new and (maybe not) improved Beverly Hills 90210. The worst part is I can’t stop thinking disapprovingly how much racier it is than the old one!

  7. You and I sound like we were separated at birth. I’m almost 40 (in Jan.), I work in my husband’s computer store, I’m claustrophobic, I’ve been called rigid and unforgiving too, I’m too flaky to follow email threads well, and I love One Tree Hill (my secret guilty pleasure).

    Stacerellas last blog post..Label this, bitches!

  8. Ha! Another geek here, especially fantasy/sci fi stuff like Star Trek, Firefly (I still haven’t seen Buffy yet), even Dr. Who. Considering a big part of my income comes from other geeks at anime conventions, I have no problem with geekiness.

    The Ardent Threads last blog post..Itโ€™s my birthday.

  9. Crazy, huh? It helps to have my husband or another “lifeline” there to help me stay grounded. Or to help me if I do start to have a panic attack.

  10. I’m finding the overstimulation has gotten much worse since I left the workforce. I think it’s because I spend so much time alone or just with Miss L.

  11. I catch OTH on the soap channel every now and then. I have no idea what’s going on but I have noticed a tendency for “smell the fart acting” by pretty much all the men on that show.

  12. I love your articles, I have been checking out your site over the past few months, and I really like the content here. This is a great article. I think your design is excellent!!
