6 ~more~ things about me.

Since super cool miss chicklet tagged me again, I'm going to give 6 more mundane things about myself. But I'm going to cheat and I'm not going to retag people.

Anyway, here are the rules (if I was following them):
1) Link to the person who tagged you
2) Post the rules
3) Share six non-important things / habits / quirks about yourself
4) Tag at least three people

1. I hate closing the door to pee. But I don't like to pee in front of people either. I'm not one who will just keep the door open and talk to anyone in the room, but if no one is around, I will not close the door. Even in public stalls. If there are 5 stalls and I'm the only one in there, I won't close my door. I'm bound to get "caught".

2. I am freaked out by elevator buttons. I'm a semi germ phobe, but only with certain things like that. I will never touch one with my fingers - I'll use my elbow, knee, pen, cell phone. I'll even let my kids press it, but I won't.

3. I have a smell/thought induced gag reflex. I can lurch with any smell (like the bum juice of boston) or watching Bear Grylls eat a pus filled bug. And although just thinking about something like this can get me to physically gag, I can't make myself gag using physical efforts (fingers or, well, ah-hem - you know).

4. I'm a guinness drinker and I feel "holier than thou" because of it. I actually will look down upon a non guinness drinker when I order guinness and they order a "clear" beer. Not that I think I'm a better person, I just think I'm a cooler beer drinker. The funniest part of it all is I only started drinking guinness because my boyfriend at the time would only pay for my beers if I drank guinness (I guess he was the same way). I used to have to hold my breath to drink the stuff.

5. I think clipping your fingernails should be done in the privacy of your house/bathroom and will tell anyone who is clipping in public to knock it the hell off. I've walked into the cube of a complete stranger at work and asked them to stop. Heck, I told a receptionist at my massage therapist's office that her clipping was "a bathroom noise" just yesterday.

6. I loathe brushing my teeth. I still brush them at least twice a day and I floss a few times a week, but I have to make myself do it. I don't know why this is either. I like clean teeth. I don't like bad breath. I like the way my mouth feels after I do it, but it feels like such a chore to me. If there was a gum I could chew in place of brushing, I'd do it.

Well, that's that. The buck stops here in this part of the pay it forward in tags, but since I think I'm the last person on earth to "fill this out", I think everyone already got tagged already!

I had a boss who used to clip his nails in his office and it GROSSED ME OUT! Hygiene should be kept in private. Ick.

I hate brushing my teeth too - I do it, but man it's a pain in the ass.

I *love* guiness too! I will go for a black and tan every now and then though. My husband is a vodka drinker so the bartender always gets it wrong when he hands us the drinks. I love saying no the girl drink is for him.

I hate having the door closed when I pee also, but I do it so as not to distract the other drivers (as much).

I wouldn't say I'm freaked out by elevator buttons, I just recognize them as evil and, likewise, I'm willing to enlist the support of children to push them (I figure it helps them build a robust immune system).

I'm only against public area fingernail clipping when people are not diligent about keeping the clippings from flying all over the place, as if they suppose that they "magically" disappear. Public toenail clipping is an entirely different category and should be punishable by death.

Perhaps you could offset your loathing for teeth brushing with your love for Guinness--brush your teeth with Guinness! Seriously, I loathe brushing your teeth too, since it seems like I always pick a bad time and you usually grumble about how I'm doing it wrong.
