I've been tagged!! Wooo! Weird Habits

I'VE been tagged by Fi over at http://trixibel.blogspot.com/ about weird habits and although I'm not quite sure what that means (novice blogger alert) I'm going to try to play along!

Basically it appears to be a game which started a while back with the topic "Five weird habits that you have" and people who are tagged need to write an entry about their five weird habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end you need to choose the next five people to be tagged and link to their blogs. Don't forget to leave a comment in their blog or journal that says 'you've been tagged' to let them know you've invited them to play and to read your entry.

Ok, so if you're still with me, here are my five weird habits:


1. When I’m checking that I’ve turned off lights or the cooker or the immersion, I always have to do it three times. Not twice, not four times, but three. This stems back to my childhood when I hung around with two friends and we called ourselves the Three Muskateers; from then on I’ve firmly believed the number three is lucky for me.

2. I sing hymns in the shower. Never pop or modern songs, always hymns. My neighbours think I’m a religious freak! I’m not, I just like the way the melody sounds in the acoustics of the bathroom.

3. When I get dressed I always have to put my trousers or skirt on first before my top. I know a lot of people do this, but it really freaks me out to do it the other way round. (Maybe it’s because my arse has its own postcode and I like to get it under wraps as quickly as possible.)

4. I always keep my eyes closed when I open the hot press where the hot water tank is, because I have a mortal fear of water tanks and can’t stand to look at them, even for a second. It’s totally irrational but I imagine getting trapped inside the tank (how, I don’t know) and it makes me feel physically sick.

5. When I’m ticking things off my work ‘to do’ list I always have to put a tick before AND after the item and score a heavy black line through it…just to make sure that it’s really ticked off. If I don’t do this, I feel like the work is still sitting there to be done. I know, I know, I’m a loon.

So there you have it. I don't think I'm that weird (not about to be committed to the laughing house anyway) but maybe you'd all beg to differ. Let me know!

The next five people I'm tagging to hear about their weird habits are: (forgive me putting in the whole link, I haven't figured out how to properly do the whole HTML code thing yet!)

Getting stuck in the hot water tank could so easily happen! Quantum uncertainty and all that jazz.

Imagine the scene, you're in the shower, humming away your favourite hymn, and suddenly something very strange happens to the fabric of space time, the water starts flowing back into the showerhead and sucks you up into it!

Before you know it you're in the belly of your hot water system screaming to get out! Eeek!
