3 (More) Weird Things About Me...

1)I'm addicted to Peppermint Patties. I eat them like most people smoke cigarettes. Sugar is my nicotine. I ate a whole bag one day and my hubby came home and saw the empty bag and forbid me to have any more. So what did I do?

I went to store, promptly paid for another bag and came home and ate some. He walked in on me, grabbed the bag and said, "That's the last one for you." HE HID MY BAG, Y'ALL!! Do you know how hard I searched our apartment?? I was flipping over sofa cushions, wiggling under the bed,pushing clothes aside in the closet - EVERYTHING. I couldn't do anything until I had my fix. That's when I knew I had a problem.

"Hello, everyone. My name is Tara and I'm a chocoholic."

"Hi Tara."

2) When I was younger, I wanted to be a scientist when I grew up. My parents even bought me a chemistry set when I was younger. I didn't read the instructions, oh no. I just started mixing chemicals on the back porch and watch the liquid turn colors. I'm pretty sure I spilled some hazardous stuff on myself that will probably manifest itself in a tumor of some form in the next 20 years or so.

3) When I'm watching movies, I don't hear the dialogue. I actually "read" it in my head. It's like I have my own personal subtitles in my head. And when I'm watching a DVD, I turn the subtitles on so I can read it. I love reading how people write, and I constantly learn new things when I do it. I learned all the dialogue from Sex and the City verbatim after watching it a couple of times with the subtitles. Ask me any quotes from SATC and I can tell you which season, episode number, who said it and where. My brain is cluttered with useless info like that.

I loved my childhood chemistry set- with the exception of the formaldehyde filled jar with the frog for dissecting. No thanks!

when I was a little girl, my grandparent took me out to eat at a restaurant about 20 miles from our house -- once a week. When we were leaving they would buy me one or two peppermint patties. I would make them last the WHOLE way home by trying to eat all the chocolate off of them without eating the mint. I feel your pain. You're sure you love this man? LOL

Working girl, you know it's true love when you let your significant other hide your goodies without making them pay for hiding

But he's doing a good thing. A whole bag is murder on my health.

Yolanda, I never got the chance to dissect a frog in high school. I think I'm glad.

I thought I was the only one that read the movies.. I love to read as well, I read too many blogs and newspaper websites a day to count them. Reading really is fundamental.
