7 weird or random things meme

weird - "strikingly odd or unusual"
random - lacking any definite plan or order or purpose; governed by or depending on chance
I have actually been tagged several times for this meme - Widdle Shammrock @musings of a green kneecapping leprechaun , Guera-a Roaming Aussie who is coming home and Queen Mommy@talbotstotarget

I have to list 7 weird or random things about me and then tag 7 more people to do the same.

I am sorry it took me so long.It's a bit boring,nothing juicy - may as well go put the kettle on ...
  1. I have never dyed my hair - I don't even think I have even used a wash out colour.I did use spray on mousse a few times for highlights. I am only a little grey (touch wood)
  2. I discovered using the shortened version of my name with my very common marital surname xxx- at this site there are only 14 people in the US who share my name but over 5085 using Patricia xxx.

    • There are 4,555 people in the U.S. with the first name Trish.
    • Statistically the 2762nd most popular first name.
    • More than 99.9 percent of people with the first name Trish are female.

    • There are 1,635,141 people in the U.S. with the first name Patricia.
    • Statistically the 12th most popular first name.
    • 99.63 percent of people with the first name Patricia are female.

  3. My MIL shares my name Patricia (though it is technically her middle name but she uses it as her first name she usually goes by 'Pat'). What fun it was when she lived with us (yes - enough said).

    She had nothing better to do...waited eagerly for the mail person so of course she got to open all mail addressed to Mrs Patricia xxx my mail first ...if there was any doubt in her mind or she was curious.So we had a few words over this !

    Then there was the Dr mixing up our files, the same Gynae - so the cervical biopsy/papsmear invoice sent to me she thought was hers. Long story but she had them running around in circles saying she hadn't had a pap smear in years ( TMI -no sex in 20 years so why bother).She never even considered it was mine.Eventually they tracked me down - and I still had to pay LOL.I changed my name on several things after that to Trish.(ps is it weird my husband chose me having the same name as his mother?)

  4. My 2nd toes are longer than my big toes.
  5. I am a very anxious person and have extreme fears but I can't blog about them because I'm also paranoid and superstitious! I don't like the number 13 and yet my parents lived at NO 13 ... Mum just sold after 25 yrs.
  6. I can't touch type ... if I type fast I make lots of errors.I am very uncoordinated.
  7. I don't wear a watch and I haven't for years.

This is one of the hardest memes I have done - because I am not sure what is really weird about me - and what weird stuff I can share *gasp*. I didn't even have to narrow it down.

I had no idea who to tag but if you want to do it you can ...

Haha - #3 made me laugh!! I can identify.

Tracey said...

Well, fellow weird one, I've never dyed my hair either. And my second toes are longer than my big toes as well. My husband likes to tell me that's weird, but I think his toes look odd!

Your #3 is a classic.

just jamie said...

Never died your hair? No watch? Wow. Impressive.

tiff said...

Another with second toe longer than big toe.

Blog bling for you at my blog.

Widdle Shamrock said...

lol @ #3.

My birth maternal grandmother is Patricia.

Isn't it strange, when writing these things, they can appear as totally normal to us, yet will seem odd to others.

Glad you took part.

I think the weird thing is that you didn't throttle your mil!

And as one who has continually dyed my hair for the last mumble years (subtract sixteen from a big number) I can only say "What?" about number 1!!!

I'm with you on the watch thing, but I dye my hair like 5 times a year. Probably why it's falling out...eek! I noticed you tagged me. I'll see if I can get to it this week.
