Weird Science

I've been enjoying reading the "Six Weird Things About Me" meme that I've seen on several blogs lately, so it came as a surprise when I was tagged by kgirlknits! So without further ado:

Six Weird Things About Me:

1. I love action movies, especially James Bond. I think it comes from watching them with my dad when I was growing up. I have a soft spot for Roger Moore (I watched a lot of his films when I was young) but of course my favourite is Sean Connery. Although, I've got say that I was very impressed with Daniel Craig in the latest film Casino Royale. He was exactly what I imagined an MI5 agent to be like and there were a lot less of the special effects that ruined the last few movies.... As I said, I love James Bond films.

2. I like the taste of bananas but I can't eat them. I think it is a texture thing. Give me banana cake, banana lollies, anything with banana flavour but don't give me bananas! The mushiness really grosses me out.

3. I'm a band geek. I used to play the flute in high school and even went to band camp! I played from year 7 thru to year 11 and by the end I actually wasn't to bad. It's pretty gross, but when you play for a while the condensation builds up inside the flute and drips out the end. After a concert, we would all have a little puddle on the floor next to us. I occasionally think about playing again (it's packed away somewhere back at home) but I think I would like to learn the piano now instead.

4. When they use that little polisher thing at the dentist to clean my teeth I get a tingle in my lower back. It's not exactly a good or a bad feeling but sometimes it can get so bad that I almost have to ask them to stop.

5. My family thinks I blow my nose unusually load. The worst time is during spring when I suffer from hayfever. Every morning I would get the usual comments like "The trumpet is starting again". I don't think it's that bad and Brad hasn't complained.... yet.

6. I don't mind travelling by air but I'm not a fan of turbulence (as most people probably aren't). My hands start to sweat at the first sign of bumpiness so to help my nerves, I close my eyes and pretend I'm in a bus on a bumpy road. Sometimes this helps, sometimes it doesn't.

Anyway, there is six weird things about me that you probably didn't know. I'm going to tag Jenny now!

Have fun!

    I love your six things - I too watched James Bond films with my dad, and I thought the most recent Bond was pretty amazing. Arrogant, heartless, ruthless. Yup. Good Bond!

    Seems we're on the "I hate bananas" bandwagon together Bec. Same thing with me too ... it's all about the texture!
    I think that's why I couldn't swim in my cousins dam as a kid ... ewww!

    The dentist thing though? Freaky!
