UN-spectacular? Me?

I was tagged by Nancy over at The Zimmer Zoo. So here goes:

The subject is….
“6 UN-spectacular things about me”

As with everything in life there are rules:
1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they've been tagged.

1) I'm a hypochondriac. Kind of. I mean, I don't really commit to it, but my mind always jumps to odd diseases.

2) I love sci-fi and fantasy. Books, movies, TV...I'm addicted. And it doesn't even bother me if it's super cheesy.

3) I watch more TV than I'd like. And unfortunately, the shows I love don't seem to do well, and then they get canceled, and then I'm sad. Sadder than would be appropriate for the cancellation of a TV show. I'm still mouring the loss of Firefly and Veronica Mars.

4) I can't spell. Why, in the world, would "canceled" have one l but "cancellation" have 2 l's? That doesn't make any sense.

5) I'm not a big fan of hot, sunny, humid days. I'd choose overcast, or better yet, snowy days anytime. We lived in Atlanta for 5 years, and my poor husband had to listen to me complain about the weather pretty much every day from May through October. And then in the winter, too, since it never snowed enough for my taste.

6) I'm shy in large groups, and get anxious in social situations. My idea of hell is having to make small talk in a large group. But I try to get out and do it anyway, although I fear that people walking away thinking, "gee, she's weird, and not in a fun good way but in an odd, off-putting way".

So, now on to who to tag. I hate this part. I don't want to leave out people who want to be tagged, but I don't want to tag people who DON'T want to be tagged. So if I tag you, feel free to ignore it with no worries. Here goes:

Two Moms and a Baby

Mary Ellen at Snacks, Please

Writer Dad, with the caveat that you beat up on yourself often enough so limit yourself to QUIRKS!

A certain sarcastic secret blogger who won't let me link in her blog, much to my dismay.

Anyone else who feels like it. I'm bad at counting. Is that six yet??

I so TOTALLY hear you about #6...sums me up too. I've been contemplating a post about it, actually...

Don't we all watch more tv than we'd like to admit? ;-) It keeps me feeling normal though! ha ha!
