5 Weird Things, Tagged by Natalie

I have tagged by Natalie at Interface to list 5 Weird Things that I do!  I saw this on someone elses blog, too and I have been giving the whole subject some thought!  

I don't think I do much that would be considered weird, but I will give it a try!  Of course, all of us think we are completely sane...don't we?  So, after some help from my kids and hubby - here is my list!

1)     Read several books at one time. 

I usually have one or two non-fiction educationally based books that I am reading at the same time that I am reading fiction books for fun.  I am an avid reader and there are some weeks when I can blow through 5 or 6 books like they were nothing!  

2)     I am a HUGE Harry Potter Fan! 

I am!  I love the books, and the movies.  I even have shirts that I wear.  I have watched movies 1 through 3 probably more than 20 times or so each!  I have read the first 5 books more than 4 or 5 times each.  The 6th book is the only one I haven't reread because I wasn't in the right frame of mind to do so yet.  Long story.  HP fans will understand.  lol 

3)     I like to play certain video games with my kids. 

I love to play any of the Mario Party games with my kids on the Gamecube.  They are like board games that you play on tv and are lots of fun!  There are a few others that I will play, too.  I have been told flat out by other moms that they think that I am odd that I do that.  Whatever!

4)    I love Godzilla and I absolutely HATE King Kong!!! 

I love all the old Godzilla movies, the cartoons, and the remakes.  I have passed the love onto my eldest son, Hammer.  We will sit and watch one on tape when either of us are sick or haven't watched one in a while.  AND, I root for Godzilla.  I can't help it.  And, I hate King Kong.  Every version I have ever seen.  Hate him, don't know why...just do.  Someday, they will make a movie where Godzilla kicks his butt and I will be happy.  <sigh>

5)     I will eat ice cream off the same spoon as my dog or cat. 

 I don't mind, they are my babies, just like my kids, so I share!  I know a lot of people who do the same and just as many who are completely grossed out by that.  I think it is just one of those things with pets that you either get or you don't. 

I want anyone who reads this and has not done it on their blog yet to consider themselves TAGGED! 

Come back and leave me a link so I can read yours!

I hope you enjoyed!

Be well,
Dawn

Dawn,
I am a #5 person too.  I would feed my Ginny from my fork or spoon and think nothing of eating from it.  After all, I would get kisses from her all the time.  She was my Puppy Ginny.
Hugs, Lu

I love reading these "weird things" in people's journals because they aren't too weird, know what I mean? It's our own uniqueness of which I have quite a few, LOL.

My daughter loves Harry Potter. I think she has all the books memorized she's read them that many times each.

Hi Dawn :-)
I just did mine....wow..you read really fast, I like Harry Potter & I like to play video games w/ my kids too..oh don't get me started on those--I won't be able to make dinner and the kids will be going to their room crying because I'd be sending them off there and not be able to play the video games themselves.
After reading several of these entries--it's a comfort knowing I'm not alone..LOL!
Fun and interesting you~

I read like you do and my house has two Harry fans in it,me and my sister, as far as the cat and dog thing goes I cook my dog hamburg and steak but I won't give her ice cream and I share carrots with my hamster. Congrats on being an editor's pick. -Dawn-

Hi Dawn~Happy NY! I had to LOL at eating off the same spoon as pets--I've done too. Sorry abt. the struggle with the new medicine. I never read Tracey before and thought your description was right on the money. Blessings, Sassy ;-) See my "Caught Weird" entry!
