Six weird things and a bunch of other facts

Okay, I've been tagged to write six weird things about myself. Here are the rules: People who get tagged need to write a blog entry of their own 6 weird things. In the end, I will choose 3 people to be tagged and list their names. I'm supposed to leave a comment on their blog that says they have been tagged and to tell them to read my blog!

I don't know what defines weird but I'll do my best:
1. I have 10 piercings in one ear
2. I have six other piercings
3. I once photographed a suspension party and a friend getting branded
4. I have a simian crease on one hand
5. I have Morton's toe
6. I think that leaving the toilet seat up is a sign of bad manners.

Okay after I've revealed all those weird things about myself (there are a few more that I can't mention), I guess that I'll tag Shannon, Mary Christine, and Christine.

    (and piercings!)I had fun reading your wierdness(and unique-ness)..
    keep adventuring in life Syd :)
    thanks for sharing ..!

  2. You sound like someone who would be nice to be friends with. Great lists, thanks for sharing.


  3. oh my gosh!!! Another Capricorn!!

  4. YAY.......a Democrat... I'm going to have to look up the 'Morton Toe' and the Simian Crease.

    If you have dogs.. good you leave the seat and cover down.. so they don't drink the water. :)

    I KNOW you would NOT have MESSED up a child.. but Addictions are hurtful to children.

    I have some friends that never had children and I tell them for every YING there is a YANG. :).. they got to experience more things than me.

    DINKS.. stand for Double Income No KIDS.. lol....

    Being a MOM to 3 was a lot of WORK; more than doing my freelance work.. lol. I give myself an A- on raising the first two........and an A+ on the last one so far (but he is way easier to raise).

    You have a great eye for PHOTOS.. very nice.

    I'm staying on the computer too much .. BUT because of the Cold. I spent 3 nights reading someone's else's blog.........hers was superlong. I learned so much. I'm becoming LESS CODIE. (seeing myself in others.. yikes.. I can relate .. and I don't want to be a CODIE ever again. ). How arrogant of me that I thought I could Change anyone.. lol.


Let me know what you think. I like reading what you have to say.
