Tagged Again

Originally posted back in 12/06 when the tag only required 6 things..
Thanks Jewmaican..Mrs Jude..Behind a smile and whoever else tagged me this time around..

Thanks Sara and Anonym00kie for this..

I've been trying all week to narrow this list down to

1. I cannot wear a watch..necktie..anything tight on me. It drives me nuts.

2. I have no sense of direction. nada.. I can get lost on the same road 100 times..

3. I chew gum all day... I get very nervous when theres no spearmint in my mouth..

4. I havent vomited since I was 7 years old.

5. I have severe bibliophobia. I must have reading materials in the following situations.
a. in the bathroom. if theres nothing to read I'll grab anything..including hair dryer
b. when I'm eating by myself..
c. on a bus or plane...I bring along enough to read for a week.

6. When I get nervous I pick up the couch and throw it through the window..

ok..ok I made up that last one..

Ok I tag President Ahmedinejad (yes..he actually has a blog). This should be fun.

Speaking about Ahmedinejad..

Just an odd observation.

6 - that IS weird!

i have bibliophobia too - (never heard of the word - lol) - and not only that - it's combined with 'writophobia' - in which i always have to have a pen/paper/computer at close write..
on the beach, in the bathroom, definitely on a plane, when i'm having lunch with friends..whatever..
i'm so addicted to writing, it sometimes drives me nuts.

okay - another addiction I have is 'flossophobia' - I cannot eat or drink anything (besides water) without flossing afterwards. They say flossing prevents diabetes or heartattacks (something along those lines) - i hope it's true. I take floss with me absolutely everywhere..and when I I did once when I ate by my bro's house on shabbos...I had to walk back to my sis' house (where I was staying )in between the meal -to floss and luckily for the eruv..I was able to carry it back with me. lol

That was 2
3 ( you now realize, i'm using your -
I have an obsessive personality, and I have to be SO CAREFUL not to get carried away with obsessive thoughts and actions...and it's darned difficult.

4-When I don't mean to be funny and witty- I'm extremely so..but when I really want to, it never works - lol
5 - I write far more clearly than I articulate my thoughts..well, usually anyway.

6- I can hardly ever see the bad side to's an almost twisted logic..
except for %$%%&^%& president ahmedinejad

I almost broke mine a few years back...but valiantly held

First off...ur rent is due..
as for ur list..
well..I dnt suffer frm writophobia..but that must be tough. I hate writing..manually..I dont mind typing though but I'm not very good at it ..thats why my posts are generally not very long.
Your thing number 6 is a great trait to have..

lol..if shes not on the couch

wow thats pretty extreme :-)

If I'd be pregnant I'd have bigger problems than vomiting.
Id ur ever on jeopordy you shold pray to get Tissue Boxes for

LOL! The post was great but the comments beat all!
I know this is an old post, but one thing makes me really want to comment:
#1- It's normal enough to be annoyed by these things, but if you really have a problem ("cannot wear...drives me nuts") you should know it's one symptom of sensory problems. Of course, that alone doesn't mean anything, but it's something to watch out for.

#5 is so me! Besides for that, even when not in those situations, I read anything that's visible.
