Unspectacular

The awesome Hilary tagged me, so I must obey! :) The rules: Link to the person that tagged you. Mention these rules on your blog. Tell 6 unspectacular quirks of yourself and tag 6 fellow bloggers.

1. I count things. Example: I count the number of strokes in a word, and if it doesn't come out to a number I like (mostly evens, and multiples of five), I figure out a way to fix it. Sometimes it's for a single word; sometimes it's for an entire phrase or sentence. I like the way my name turned out: Bethany Lyn Davis- a perfect 30 strokes. Booyah!

2. I HATE the sound of brushing teeth. Any toothpaste commercial on tv makes me cringe. I think this is similar to how some people react to fingernails down a chalkboard. Electric brushes are barely acceptable, but if there's someone near me using a manual, I have to get out!!

3. I love meat. Jeff took me out to eat once before we were engaged, and I got soup because I wasn't feeling well. Jeff's roommates were like "Oh no, she's a soup and salad girl!" But, I redeemed myself when they found out my favorite pizza is meat lovers. Really, if you look at me, there's no way any logical person would think I was a salad girl. :)

4. TV is a real weakness for me. We never had tv growing up, so I thought it was the coolest thing when I got to college. I try not to turn it on, but if I do, I really have to work hard to pull myself away. We've decided that when we get a place of our own, we're not going to have TV. I think this will make me a better mom.

5. I've never been stung by a bee, wasp, or any other flying stinging/biting thing.

6. I've only had my hair professionally cut 3 or 4 times. When I was little, my mom did it, and I took over as soon as I could. I've gotten a lot better over the years, and I'd rather be mad at myself for a bad cut, then irate at someone else.

I'm tagging people I haven't seen blogging in a while in hopes of getting an update! I officially tag Amanda Hatch, Eden Howard, Faith Sieler, Aileen Brower, Emily Freeman, and Samantha Goodrich.

I'm the same way with TV - that's why we don't have it. but I miss it. A lot.

I don't count things but I have a huge thing with dates. Toby was "allowed" to come on 2/4/08 or 2/6/08 because 2x4 = 8 and 2+6=8 and on and on - I remember dates like nobody's business. Sometimes it scares people. Bwahahaha.

Remember when we had our Smallville marathon in London? And we tried to watch as fast as possible so we could move on with our lives? Hehehe.

I didn't know you know Amanda Hatch. She was one of my very first roommates when I came here to Rexburg.... what a small world, huh? I love the thing about brushing your teeth.... that makes me laugh! Andy can't stand it either.

Just for my information, what is a stroke in a word? I don't think I know what that means.
