>I was tagged! Six weird and Random Things about me!
I was tagged by Jennifer’s Books for the six quirky things about me meme. This is the first time I’ve been tagged for a meme.

The rules are:
* Link to the person who tagged you
* Post the rules on your blog
* Write six random things/unspectacular quirks about yourself
* Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them
* Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog
* Let the tagger know when your entry is posted

Weird things about myself, in no particular order:

1) I can not sleep without a light on and things all over my bed.
2) Even though I was born and raised in America, I have been known to occasionally use British words, like dust bin, knickers and my favorite, knackered.
3) My favorite books are true crime and my favorite TV show is Forensic Files and my favorite Network is TruTV.
4) I would sell my children (if I had any) a kidney and ⅓ of my liver to live in Manhattan.
5) When I am in a bad mood and rude to people, I later tell them I have a twin and she is perpetually grouchy.
6) I talk to other car drivers, my cat, my friend’s bird, my computer and my car like I think they can understand me and then wait for an answer.

Now the question is who to tag next? I only know about 8 bloggers and most of them have been already tagged so I am tagging Viva Law Vegas.

>I Love Tea

>and I have to agree with ‘BOOW‘ that Lipton is rubbish. Actually I think he said that ALL American tea is rubbish.

Have I ever said that I like the way the British use the word ‘rubbish’? They use it for lots of things, not just when they are talking about trash. Also, I like the way my mouth feels when you say it, my lips smack together on the b’s.

Back to tea, I was going to try a British tea so I went to Amazon and ‘GASP’ $8.00+ for a box of tea?! Well, I’m American so I think I can be forgiven for sticking with Twinings. Besides I can buy Twinings loose. The loose tea is what is in the jar, which is actually an olive jar. I kept spilling the tea when I was wrestling with the tin it came in. These little jars are quite handy, I use one as a little bank on my desk at work.

Got these dollar coins when I bought M’s train ticket. I noticed there was no date on them. The date is on the edge of the coin. Date, ‘E pluribus unum’, and ‘In God We Trust’. Pretty cool huh? And speaking of coins, I just brought home a bunch in a ziploc baggie. I need to roll them so I can cash them in.
