the 10 things freak meem

"the 10 things about meemish that I really don't want to tell you but will because I'm a freak."


1. moon river is my favorite song ever written. the memories of my grandmothers humming along while baking mandel bread and knitting... so inspiring and cozy. I include it in everything I write.

2. I would rather hang out with my dog than the majority of people I've met in my life. I absolutely love spending time with him. he's funnier, smarter and more interesting. I'm a freak.

3. I have inappropriate, severe and unrelenting white coat syndrome. my fear of doctors is so intense that I am convinced it has something to do with a previous life.

4. I never lock my car and I usually leave my keys in the car. to me it's not stupid. it makes sense. what pisses me off is when someone breaks into my car and leaves the door open. OK-- here I went to all this trouble to leave the car unlocked. the least you can do is be a mensch and close the door after you've had your fun.

5. when I'm at home, regardless of the weather outside, I need to have at least one fan on. the whirring sounds is very calming to me. I can't think without it.

6. I cannot breathe when the heat is on. again, regardless of the temperature, and I always need fresh air.

7. when I was a kid, I was terrified of the weather. I'm talking unadulterated abject terror whenever storm clouds would hover. I would freak the fuck out and think a tornado was coming.

8. I hate, hate, HATE, abhor and despise cleaning my kitchen floor. no idea why. I do it, of course, but I absolutely hate it with a passion. cleaning anything else is never a problem.

9. when I get dressed, I always put my shoes on first. it's a very strange habit, I know. even after I shower, I will dry off and stand in front of a mirror in my towel or completely naked, but I must have my shoes on --weird.

10. I have to write my writing notes and inspiring quotes actually on my refrigerator with a sharpie.

I think it's safe to say that I am an epic freak. I spose it could be worse.

#9: I'm getting all sorts of strange visuals over that one. The days you are in heels, it works, but sneakers? Knee high boots? Hmmmmm?

But either way, I think the other male readers here are gonna agree with me that if every woman towelled down and then hoofed up, there'd be a whole lot more bathroom lovin goin on around the world.

And I dont even have a shoe fetish, for fuck sake.

I was totally afraid of all weather as a kid, even more so after a tree fell on our house during Hurricane Gloria. No real damage, no injuries, but I watched it fall right towards me from our bay window. I was, needless to say, a mite nervous from then on when it came to any kind of high winds.

I got my 10 freakizoid things up tonight.

No Katie, it can't be much worse than this. You are the biggest blogging freak! But only on about 2 points. The rest make me almost believe you might be human! I hate humans though. Smarten up.

Yeah, you could be Evil Spock. Btw, Evil Spock added 4 more weird things on your previous post in the comments section.

Evil Spock likes Moon River too . . .

That's cool, very old school Hollywood. I can see you typing away with Faulkner and The Epsteins.

You can’t be me
I’m a Porn Star
I’m rhyming on the top of
a cop car
I’m a rebel and my .44 pops far
It’s almost over now
It’s almost over now

I think I may still have one or two freakish items hidden in my closet. I may try to unearth them.

I'm a freak, also

#1. I like "Moon River" also. Reminds me that very intimate scene of "Breakfast at Tiffany's".

#2. That is me, also. My dog is much better company than anyone else.

#3. I have a fear of male doctors, I have no fear of female doctors. I don't know why. Even during the "intimate" visits, I much prefer a female doctor.

#5. I cannot sleep without a small fan by my bed.

#6. I hate the heater. I'd rather be cold.

OK, I like that song too. But what the fuck is a huckleberry friend?
