5 Weird Things About Me

I got tagged for this weird meme by Astroprof.  I don't mean that the meme is weird.  The topic of the meme is five weird things about yourself.  I don't usually answer these, but Astroprof is a heck of a nice guy, so this one's for him.
Five Weird Things About Me (weird defined in a VERY broad sense):
  1. I'm afraid of heights, yet work at 40,000 feet.
  2. I can still remember all of the phone numbers that I've had, going all the way back to childhood.
  3. I don't have a middle name.
  4. During my entire time in elementary school, I never missed a word on my spelling tests.
  5. I blog anonymously.  I mean, how weird is that!

I'm not tagging anyone else, so this ends here.

I have always had trouble spelling. With spell-check, I get less practice, so it's just gotten worse!

That's a tad self righteous to end it here, don't you think?

I still remember some of my childhood friends phone numbers. (But I can't remember what I did last week.)

Wow -- I've been called many things in my lifetime, but never self righteous.

The reason I'm not tagging anyone is more of respect for others, rather than some notion of my own self importance. In fact, I think it's a bit silly to even think someone would feel they need to respond to anything -- just because I tagged them.

People choose to share or not share in their blogs at a comfort level unique to them. I respect that. If any of my favorite bloggers choose to pick up on this theme and answer the questions, great. (You know who you are because I drop by and leave comments.)

However, no obligation on the part of anyone to respond. I know many of you have issues and topics of your own that you explore on your blog and I have the utmost respect for that.

Sorry if I touched a nerve with anyone.

Allison: I wonder if there's a psychological explanation for that?

Being afraid of heights and a flight-attendant is not that unusual (it's the vertigo that gets you, not the flying).

I hate paperwork and became a lawyer. I take stuff from big piles and make them into smaller piles, and sometimes pretend like I'm typing something important.
