7 weird things

Sara tagged me for 7 weird things. Someone tagged me for 8 things I like about myself awhile ago, and I tried to write that post, but there literally aren't 8 things I like about myself. Weird I can do.

1- Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2- Share 7 random and or weird things about yourself.
3- Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4- Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

7 random or weird things:
1. I have this bulge that pops out of my wrist when I press on just the right place on my palm; it looks like a beating heart.
2. I've had chronically dislocating knees since my earliest memories. This used to be a very painful and not infrequent problem when I lived in the icy Midwest, but since moving to SoCal, it only happens about once every two years.
3. I'm petrified of horses (although I liked the idea of them as a kid - just not the real McCoy).
4. I'm hypersensitive to background music, architecture, etc. There are many places I avoid because of this.
5. I'm a stickler for grammar and spelling (I welcome typo correction - I consider it a favor akin to telling a friend discreetly that there's lettuce in her teeth or her fly is open).
6. I like a clean house but despise housework and avoid it whenever possible. My neat freak husband keeps me in line. That reminds me: it's already 5, and I still haven't started the single task I was assigned for the whole day.
7. I'd take Joshua Bell over George Clooney.

I'm not going to follow #3 and 4 (due in part to shyness and also a healthy disregard for rules), but please feel free to play along if you're so inclined.

LOL, Is your bulge a ganglion cyst?

What can I say - his music makes my soul sing. :)

I don't know what it is, but it's invisible when I'm not pushing on my palm. The bulge that pops out of the inside of my left wrist is about the size of a dime but heart-shaped, but the one that pops out of my right wrist is smaller but the shape of a dog bone.
