Last week Stacey tagged me with "5 weird things about me (or my pet)".
Since I have yet to post it and couldn't limit it to just five...

Thirteen weird things about Kimmy...
(consider yourself tagged!)

1. I LOVE the smell of zippo lighters. It's a good thing I don't smoke. I could seriously just sit around opening and closing my zippo and huffing away.

2. Speaking of huffing... I love the smell of gas(oline). I'm not a huffer, nor have I ever considered it, but I do love to sniff it.

3. Now that I think about it... I could have very well been satisfied as a gas station attendant. Yeah. That's weird.

4. I like the smell of vinegar. I don't just sit around and sniff it, but I like bold/overpowering smell. It's natures bleach... non toxic and strong. (And I love to pour white vinegar and a little water in a sauce pan, add some shakes -or sticks- of cinnamon and simmer. Deodorizes any odor (duh!) and gives the impression of hours spent baking away in the kitchen.)

5. I have to have ice in my drink. Lots of ice!

6. I can't stand drinks from a soda fountain without ice... even though it's cold.

7. I can't add ice to a drink from a soda fountain... it just doesn't taste the same! I have to add the ice then fill it up. (My brother is a freak about asking for drinks with no ice... "You get more." Ugh! I'd rather have 60 cc's less and drink it OVER ice!)

8. I love ketchup and don't just limit it's use to burgers and fries.

9. When I was little I used to call peas "little green balls". I don't remember this. My step-mom told me. I dunno.

10. I HATE heat! I'd rather be too cold than too hot. I can always put on more clothes, but I can only take off so many... if ya know what I mean!

11. I like to go to bed cold. A/C down, fan on and snuggled under lots of blankets. That's weird!

12. I mix my corn and mashed potatoes. Not every time, but enough.

13. I wait for my raisin bran to get soggy before I eat it. I can't stand it crunchy.

*So far I've sent in an order of 61 bracelets and 14 t-shirts... a total of $486 for Brains for Baylie!!!!! (click the link to read more about Baylie and her bracelets... and order some while you're there ;) Last week another T13er purchased bracelets after reading about Baylie. Let's do the same this week! :)
Baylie's recuperating from another LP Shunt revision she had on Monday, August 28. Please continue to pray for her... and all of us who suffer from Pseudotumor Cerebri and Arnold Chiari.

That's not weird for me...that's actually quite cozy. :D Beats going to bed in the hear. :) However...I do end up getting colds if it's too cold. ^^;

Happy Thursday! :)

I don't do ketchup. Salt and mayo on my fries... talk about weird, huh? I'm with you on the ice in the soda. It does taste different if you add the ice after.
Hope you are feeling better.

I LOVE ketchup on scrambled eggs!!!!

Thanks for stopping by my TT last week!!!

12:28 PM  
Anonymous Christina said... do like some interesting smells. I can't really say I'm a fan of any of those.

But I'm a big ketchup eater. Allegedly, I even put it on mac & cheese when I was really little. And the ketchup has to be Heinz. Nothing else is the same. And I agree with you that drink + ice does not taste the same as ice + drink. And I have to turn the AC way down and sleep snuggled under blankets even in the middle of summer.

Happy Thursday!

Blogger Christine said...

I do #12 and 13. I worked in Restaurants for years, and you're not the only one who asks for a cup of ice on the side! LOL!! Hey, it saved me a trip to refill, so I'm happy to oblige!! :P
Have a great Thursday!

I can identify with #5, 10, & 11. I have to have lots of ICE! And, my house must be cold for me to sleep, and I can then snuggle under the sheet & light blanket, even in the summer time. My husband just freezes. :)

My TT is up.

I'd much rather be too cold than too hot too! I also turn the a/c down, the ceiling fan on, and pile on the covers...drives my hubby nuts! :)

Alot of people like the smell of things that most would consider strange. My downfall is menthol. Candles, Vick's Vapo Rub, anything menthol.

I love watered down soda and I put ketchup on Macaroni & Cheese.

I'm going to try out your tip of combining vinegar, water and cinnamon to freshen up the house.

I grew up in the South, so I'm with you on 10 & 11. "I would so much rather a Maine Winter than a New Orleans Summer any day," I always say. I also prefer to have my room ice cold and be buried under a pile of covers with several domesticated furry animals as a method of sleeping. :)

If these are things that make you weird, Miss Kimmy, then count my human pet as weird too. She also enjoys smelling zippos and the scent of gasoline. She too has a fetish for ice.

Apparently, you two were meant to be friends somehow!

Thank you for visiting my blog today, and I hope you have a great Thursday!

I like gasoline as well. I don't think I'd want to be around it all day though.

Blogger Vicky said...

Well, I totally agree with you on how yummy it is to mix mashed potatoes with corn and I too eat ketchup with pretty much everything (yes, even French Toast which completely grosses out my kids)... but I differ totally on the whole subject of ice!! I'm from England and I barely use ice at all (unless it is in my gin & tonic) and I hate it when I get served a soda here in the US and the glass is pretty much full to the brim of ice!
Nice list!
Thanks for visiting my T13 also!

Fancy my surprise when you and I share many of the same weird-ities! I hate being hot too but I'm stuck in Hawaii without AC!! No blanket cuddling for me! I have a weird Bro that orders 'soda no ice' (not for cheapness just cause he's weird!) And there ain't nuttin better than soggy bran and corny mashed tators too!

#2 (yes, yes yes... and how odd is it? but I actually love the smell at the gas station)

and #10 and #11 are definitely me, too. I hate the humidity and heat of summer. If my fiancé would allow it, my window would probably be open all winter.

#13 on the other hand... nope. Anything soggy, I won't eat. :)
