I've been Tagged

Rebekah at Eye of the Storm tagged me.
Here are the rules of the game. When you are tagged you must blog about 5 oddball habits that you have, then you must tag 5 more people. However, I don't like tag games, so hopefully her other four send out more tags. I agreed to this because the kitty picture on her blog is so cute.

Here are my five:
1: I never sleep naked. It bugs me for some reason.
2: I teach for a living, and even though I spend my time in front of groups, I'm uncomfortable in groups of people I don't know.
3: I like to play "Stump the Jokester", if you have an old joke start it out, and about 80% of the time I can give you the punch line before you finish. If we are in a bar, I'll buy you a beer if I can't.
4: I habitually dress modestly and have an aversion to resembling a street-walker. That's really odd, believe me. Wait! That was Rebekah's. Sorry.
4: (Mine) I'm afraid of heights if there isn't something solid around. The top of the Space Needle is one of the scariest places I've been, but Hoover Dam didn't bother me.
5: I don't like midget porn, even though I did 20 years in the Navy. See, Sailors aren't as weird as you all think.

If you want to volunteer to be tagged, like Paula at Ultra Blog, let me know and I'll give you a gratuitous link, too.

1,2,3 and 4: I never sleeped by you whence you were nekkid so I am a homophobe[sp?] I guess.

5: There's such a thing as midget porn? How the ... OMG!

You probably don't sleep naked because most of us didn't want to see you in the shower naked, much less in the rack without clothes on!

There are always stories about that oddball who'd sleep in the rack nude, and have his curtains kicked open by his feet or something. Never a pretty site, especially at Oh-Dark-thirty, when you had to stumble out of your own rack to get ready for a late night watch.

For those who don't know what a "rack" is, it's what we call a bed on board a ship. We can't call it a bed, because it's not. It about six feet long (and yes, we get quite a few guys taller than six feet), by 2-1/2 feet wide, by about 2-1/2 high, stacked three high.

Then there was the lovely sight of watching ICC Hollingsworth (wasn't that his name?), in the head while everyone was shaving or brushing their teeth, and he'd pull his towel off, twist it up and swipe is ass with it!

Just thought I'd bring the good memories back.

Your list may be a little on the adult side but it's nothing compared to some of the others I've seen :-).

Robo- I didn't know the wardroom had that stuff :)

Paula, tag you are it, and gratuitiously linked.

LMC, it would have been worse, but I'm trying to keep an R rating on here.

Ascan, I remember IC1 Hallsworth :) Not so much him as the skit they did before we crossed the line ABOUT him.

BTW, my first night on Mighty Mobile, which had curtains, not privacy guards between racks, I found the guy on the other side of the curtain had more hair than chewbacca, and did sleep nekkid. I'm still scarred from that.

Midget porn? Now thats just WRONG on oh so very many levels. Since when are you scared of heights? You go on roller coasters with me!! Now wait a sec, are some of these guys posting about racks and stuff people I know cuz if they are, wow I'm disturbed. And yes Sailors are weird, especially the ones now a days. sorry it's the truth.

Yes, Maddigans, you've met Ascan. I've always been afraid of heights, but I go on roller coasters with you because fun with the kids is worth dealing with fear. Plus that lock bar in the cars makes me feel safe.
