Five Quirky Things Zube Girl...

I've been tagged by Delboy to list five quirky things about myself.

There are far more than five, but I've narrowed them down because I'm sure you all couldn't care less that I always get an ingrown toenail on my right big toe, and I'm quite fascinated with the process of clipping it and fishing it out. Anyway, here are the top five:

-I'm always walking around the house shouting, "Babies!!!" Zube Boy has gotten rather accustomed to it, and no longer wonders if someone has dropped twin infants on our doorstep. Though "Babies!!!" can mean a number of things, not the least of which that I'm cuddling one of the felines, it primarily means that one of my gazillion plants is sprouting a new leaf or flower.


-I fucking love my windowsill. Sometimes I'll just stand there looking out it or at it long after I've finished washing dishes.


-I also absolutely love rooting clippings from some of my plants in water. Only I'm lazy about replanting them in soil. So, they sit on my windowsill in water for a long ass time.

-When we go off-roading, we like to bring back momentos. This is a photo of one of my favorite findings. It's a piece of an old dynamite box that we found in a mine.


-I absolutely LOVE Law & Order SVU. I'll watch episodes on USA over and over again. I've seen the one where the lady killed her infant because she had Tay Sachs like five times.

As usual, I'm not tagging any damn body. I'm a selfish fuck, so I'm gonna keep it all to myself. Thanks for the tag Delboy!

Ah, Zube Girl! You are so wrong - I am very interested in your right big toe. Please take photos the next time you do some do-it-yourself surgery.

Zube Girl said...

Chickie- You know, I don't know that I'm brave enough for that!

The piece of a dynamite box is cool. I'm the same way with plant clippings. The one I was trying to start died because the water in the glass dried up...luckily I'm a tad better at caring for the Branch and Blossom.

Al said...

ha ha! I think Joyce has seen every Law and Order every made. We always have several on tivo. I think it's a waste of space since it's on at every hour of the day anyways

Zube Girl said...

Junebee- Isn't it? We have another one, too, that we found a few years ago. And Branch and Blossom are lucky to have you as a Mum. :-) What fun would it be to be a spider plant anyway?

Al- Isn't that hilarious? You can seriously watch Law & Order any hour of the day.

It SO freaks me out when I keep finding that we have REALLY STRANGE things in common... like the big toe thing, every summer (several times a summer it seems) I have the SAME problem with my right big toe and I am also fascinated with repairing it myself.

Zube Girl said...

Amy- That is TOO funny. And strange! Heh. It's really pretty fascinating, though. In a sort of gross way.

DelBoy said...

Thanks for playing Zube!

Okay, I was a self-surgeon for years and then I finally got that bitch fixed and DUDE! You've got to get it fixed. It is so much better AND they give you good drugs!
