I am strange because... I'm not really into cakes. I'll eat sugar ring doughnuts, but that's it. No other cakes, they're just not nice. I'm also strange because I DO like dipping ready salted crisps/chips into vanilla ice-cream. Yeah, strange :)

I already follow you, and have been for a while.

I'm strange because I speak very often words invented by me that sound totally strange and hilarious. People usually don't know what to think about me when they first meet me.

Leah said...

That is too cute! Love it. I'm strange because I would rather read or write than watch TV, and I like the rain more than I do the sunshine. Thanks!

Amber said...

Oh, I'm a new blog follower also.

Jo said...

I haven't! I don't like milkshake, lol, so I doubt I'll like that. Told you - strange! ;)
And you're welcome!

My grandpa used to put peanut butter on weird things too - like on his anchovy pizza and in his tomato soup.

I despise the rain. I'm an Arizona native, so I never did grasp the concept of the whole water falling from the sky thing. Thanks for the follow and for entering :o)

I've decided that I want to enter my super awesome contest too. Oh wait, I can't win. But that's ok:

I'm strange for MANY reasons, but the one that jumps to mind first is that I'm scared of water. Yup, water. It's not like I won't take a shower, but I prefer it to a bath. And you won't get me near the ocean. I tried once, stepped in a tidepool that looked like it should have gone up to my ankle, and it went up to my hip. I started screaming and flailing. Not my prettiest moment.

Cat said...

I am strange because I pick up dead insects under the lights in parking lots for my collage art.

I Heart Monster said...

I can just picture myself walking along in the parking lot and then I see you and I'm like, "Huh?"

Cat said...

lol! I have gotten that reaction before! I use mostly butterfly wings. Once had 4 dudes from the Walmart oil change dept. trying to help me figure out what this one prehistoric looking bug was..it was huge!I won't touch anything alive though!

I Heart Monster said...

See, now I'm the exact opposite! I'll touch moths and butterflies if they're alive, but not if they are dead. My hubbie and I were out hiking a few weeks ago and we happened upon a butterfly that had landed and drown in an algae pool. He picked it up and I was like, "Um, you need to wash your hands before you touch me." He brought it all the way home and then tried to preserve it, but one of our cats made sure that didn't happen. She ate it.

Anyway - I checked out your site, amazing work! It's beautiful!

I love this commenting form-thing.

Anywaaay, I'm strange because I talk to myself in front of a mirror. (Ha.) I like acting a lot, and randomly read passages from books while watching myself. Yeah. Total weirdo. I also make up hugely extravagant lies and persuade my family/friends into believing them. (I always tell them I'm kidding, afterward, though!) I can't believe I admitted this!

I Heart Monster said...

I'm glad you like it!

So has anyone walked in on you while you were talking to yourself in the mirror? 'Cause that'd be a fun story to hear :o)

I'm strange because sometimes I make myself less attractive than I actually am.

Catherine (On The Nightstand) said...

I am strange because I apply internet social and linguistic constructs to real life, and in the company of people who Just. Don't. Get. It.

I also use big words like the above even though I am no longer trying to sound smart in anthropology classes.


Okay, and let's add up the totals:
* New RSS/Google Followers (+2 entries if you subscribe to I Heart Monster and tell me so!)
* Post a link to this contest elsewhere and tell me where (+1 entry: Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc. +2 blog sidebar, +3 blog post leave links for blogs please, {FB+ Twitter+ Sidebar+Post = 7 entries}) +1 for Twitter + 2 for sidebar (going once I finish commenting) = +3
* Follow Me on Twitter (+1 entry, you have to tell me. Already follow? Just say so, 'cause it counts!) already follow, so +1

So does that = +6? My maths r no so gud.

I Heart Monster said...

Yup, 6. See, your math skillz is gooder than you think they is. ;o) I used to use my vocabulary freely, but then my friends and family spent more time making fun of the words I used than actually communicating with me, so I stopped. Some people just.don't. get. it. I agree.

Lilly said...

I am strange because I don't like to celebrate my birthday and I don't know why.

Frances said...

I'm strange because when I sleep, I want my feet touching either the cement wall or near the edge of the bed. I want my feet caressing something cold. :p

I Heart Monster said...

Ok yeah, I see that :o) Strange indeed!
