More Weird Things About Me

Livingsword tagged me to do this meme a while ago, but I needed time to think. Anyway, here are some quirks about me:

1. I'm clumsy. I spill some stuff every once in a while he he he he...

2. I can't listen to music while trying to concentrate on reading something or especially when studying something. Everything has to be quiet.

3. I only learnt to laugh at myself after moving to Finland. So for 28 years of my life, I couldn't do it he he he he...

4. I dislike sleeping when the lights are on.

5. I dislike it when I see some of hubby's shirt inside his pants whereas the rest is out, so I just HAVE to grab it all out HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...

6. The first time I felt that I wanted to have a child of my own was when one of my best friends had given birth to her son (when we were 25 years old). Before that time, I seriously doubted my maternal instincts. I had never wanted any child of my own before then even though I thought that babies were cute. Only after that I could say to myself, "Hey, I'm a woman after all!" LOL!!!

7. I've never reread novels (but I do reread Japanese comics). Not as far as I remember. I used to "collect" novels without reading them right away. I still have a stack of novels to read that I left in Indo. Next time I visit Indo again, I'm gonna bring them with me to Finland HE HE HE HE HE...

8. The most times I watch any movie is probably only three times (While You Were Sleeping, Erin Brockovich, Home Alone, and a few others). I can't understand someone who's watched certain movies for 10 times or even more than that. I find that there are still SO many new movies to watch he he he he...

I think one of the reasons is that I don't want to watch some old movies that I used to LOVE so much and then I realized that they don't give me as much impact anymore HI HI HI HI HI...


  1. Great meme! I might have a go at that one myself, I do loads of weird things!

    I'm very clumsy too!

    Have a great weekend.

  2. The World According to Me: GREAT! I'm looking forward to reading your list, then. ;-D You too, have a GREAT weekend! ;-D

  3. I also can not sleep when the lights is on. Listening music only when i do ironing hi hi hi hi. Oh...and when Jason is around in the living room. When read and study, also must be quiet

  4. Jul: Hi five!!!! So we're both the same. Need to concentrate if we're reading and studying HE HE HE...

  5. nice to know you better with this meme heheh.... when i was still on my study, i learnt and listening music, for me no problem :)

  6. Oooh you would never survive in my office if you like it quiet. The guy next to me is sooooooo LOUD!!! I have to put my headphones on and crank up the music to drown him out so I can concentrate :-)

  7. Jeanne: Yeah, I know for some people it's not a problem he he he...

    Fish: Oh dear...that's CRAZY!!! No wonder you put up many video clips in your blog since you have to listen to music while concentrating!!!

  8. I'm glad to see that you have learned to laugh at yourself hee hee hee!

  9. Sister Sheri: Yeah, better late than never, eh? HE HE HE HE HE...

  10. Amelia,

    You forgot to add another quirkiness of yours: "when memes say 4,5,6 things I always put 6,7,8" lol :D!

    This was nice to you do not re-read novels huh? Interesting...

    I have also completed mine: this was a very interesting meme, wasn't it?!


  11. Max: BHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...Now I can't stop laughing HA HA HA HA HA HA...

    You're ABSOLUTELY right!!! I didn't even "remember" doing that HI HI HI HI...;-D

    You've completed yours, too? I'll go check it out then he he...

  12. Hi Amel!

    (Jumping up and down excitedly)

    Let me open this gift up!

    (Tearing aside wrapping paper)

    1) I used to stub my toes all the time, and then I went to contact lenses from glasses, presto! (Get it? presto? Ok my toes are fine now LOL)

    2) Listening to the soundtrack for The Fellowship of the Ring right now no problem, as long as there are not a lot of lyrics…

    3) Really?!!! That is interesting! You have such a wonderful sense of humor! I laugh at myself all the time, trust me I a worthy of laughing at!! LOL

    4) My Honey has trouble with that one also, sounds are what bothers me, particularly conversations.

    5) LOL Amel admit it you just keep your hands off your hubby!! LOL That’s great!

    6) LOL Children are such a blessing. I have to admit I don’t find new borns all that cute (I am a guy ok). I like it when they are a bit older and be real silly running around and playing fort (or better Star Ship) like I did with my little nephews the other day.

    WOW two more quirks!!!! We are going into overtime here!!!!

    7) What is your top novel? There are some novels I can’t re-read and others that I have read a dozen times like the Lord of the Rings or Life of Pi.

    8) I love to watch my favorite movies over again! Gladiator… Must be a hundred times… We do have a lot of other CD’s but the great ones you have to watch over and over….(Once again I am a guy)

    Amel this was a lot of fun! Thanks for taking the time to do this I really enjoyed it…

    You are a kind sister…

  13. Okay, I can watch some movies over and over again hi hi hi hi...

  14. That was interesting reading!

  15. Hiya Amel

    I am clumsy too.. hehe.. sometimes I can just trip for no apparent reason..lolzz

    I can't listen to music if I want to sleep coz I would sing along and can't sleep but lights don't bother me at all if I want to sleep.

    Have a great Sunday Amel.


  16. LS: HA HA HA HA HA HA...It's nice to see your excitement! ;-D

    1. Glad to hear your toes are fine now. YAAAAAAAAAAAYYY!!! ;-D

    2. I still can't do it even if it's instrumental.

    3. HE HE HE...OK, if there are opportunities, I'll laugh at you then he he he...

    4. Well, depending on my mood and how tired I am, conversations do bother me, too, when I'm trying to sleep he he...

    5. HE HE HE HE HE...You read me like a book!!! *blush*

    6. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...OK OK, you're a guy! :-))))

    7. Top novel? Hmmm...I love Wuthering Heights, The Solitaire Mystery, Immortal Beloved, The Phantom of the Opera he he he...Never read Lord of the Rings or Life of Pi. Maybe I should find Life of Pi later on.

    8. Well, I think plenty of women watch movies over and over again, but I'm not one of them. ;-D
