Take 5

Just a quicky response to a tag from grody jodie. The topic--5 weird things about you--that is me, um, you get it.

1. I love to pull out my eyelashes, and have to try really hard not to. When I get very stressed, I can't help it, and end up with bald patches on my eyelids.

2. I am the fastest reader I know. I mean, super fast. Like--I am a super hero in this regard.

3. I vacillate between thinking I am the hottest thing ever on 2 feet to thinking I am Jaba the Hut's fraternal twin sister several times a day.

4. I know all the words to every pop song released between 1980 and 1990. (Only a slight exaggeration.) This is not because I like them. It's kind of a Rain Man thing.

5. I'm an English teacher, and I suck at spelling.

Ouch. Pulling out your eyelashes? That sounds awful.

Heck, my lashes are always falling out. Seems like every 10 minutes, I'm digging another one out of my friggin' eye. I pluck my eyebrows, but that actually serves a purpose, in the grooming sense (though it's awfully...gay).

You are sooooo not Jaba the Hut, cutie girl! But I have those same feelings. I ususally think I am hot after a few drinks...hee hee

I pull out my eyelashes and eyebrows too, but only if they are already loose. I don't really go after them.

I am Jabba the Hut's twin sister, so you can not be:)

you look hot, that's for sure. and you have a really nice speaking voice. okay now I'm bragging - I GOT TO MEET YOU!!!

I compulsively pull at my eyebrows from time to time. It's kinda nuts. If I have a stray eyebrow hair (especially if I can see it) I go completely arse-over-tits insane and will not stop until I've ripped it out of my head.

I've found that the way to reconcile your worst fears and your most megalomaniacal fantasies about your attractiveness (or perceived lack thereof) is to embrace both, accept the paradox.

Or, to put it another way, "That's Jabba the HOT to you!"

I don't pull out my eyelashes, but I obsessively mess with my eybrows which causes many of the hairs to break off really short. It isn't very noticeable, though.

i think my hubby has the rain man memorization thing with all tv theme songs. he can sing all the words on demand. scary. but not a trivial pursuit category yet. :)
