Okay, as some of you may have noticed, I am the worst meme-doer ever. But okay, I have been recently tagged for two memes, and I'm doing them!
The first is from Ellen - a meme entitled Six Unspectacular Things About Me.
Here are my unspectacular quirks:
1. I am addicted to chapstick.
2. I hate mushrooms and all puddings on the grounds of texture.
3. I have to listen to a specific Led Zeppelin song every day before I write.
4. I forget all jokes told to me, except two stupid ones that inexplicably stay in my brain.
5. I know it's uncool to use as many exclamation marks as I do, but I can't stop myself!!!!
6. I LOVE to see brides outside of churches.
