5 weird things I like and . . .

As part of the August Healthy Living/Fitness Blogger Writing Challenge, this is the tenth post in a month long series of posts.

Today’s post is 5 weird things I like, and since I had a hard time coming up with 5 weird things, I added 5 things most people like that I cannot stand.  🙂
1.  Mayo or ranch dressing on fries chips.  I know it’s not really weird, but I prefer it to ketchup.  🙂
2. Not food related, but I like things to be obsessively organized.  I hate when things are messy, out of place, disorganized.  I, of course, live with someone who is not bothered by mess at all.
3.  Really, really sweet coffee.  I can’t stand black coffee, or even just coffee with milk/cream.  I need to have it sweetened.  I know that excess artificial sweeteners are not the best for you, but IMO it’s better than the extra sugar.  It’s also part of the reason I’ve limited myself to one coffee a day, most of the time.
4. I have to sleep with socks on.  It doesn’t matter if its 100 degrees or 9, I have to have socks on.
5. I can’t think of anything else that I like that’s weird, but I can give you 2 things that my mum liked that were TOTALLY weird.  She loved butter on steak and pineapple and cream cheese dip.  I thought both were totally foul, but my mum loved them. 🙂


. . . .and 5 things most people like that I cannot remotely stand.

1. Bananas.  Ew.  Ick.  I can’t stand the texture at all.  I literally cannot touch them or I freak out.

2. PB&J.  Even if I could eat peanut butter you’d never see me eat a PB&J.  Just looking at it literally makes me gag.  I hate sandwiches on bread and will not eat them. (Unless it’s toasted grilled cheese).

3. Mashed potatoes.  Again, ew.  I can’t stand the texture.  I have no issues with any other potato products, just mashed.

4. All fruit pies.  Especially apple.  Mushy and ick and gross.  I don’t really like apples anyways.  In fact most fruit with a peel make my lips swell and my throat itch, so I tend to avoid them.  It means I get less fruit in my diet, but it also means I don’t have an allergic reaction, which is more important.

5. Mayo on anything I didn’t make myself.  I will not eat a sandwich if it has mayo on it, even if it is fresh.  I am SO super paranoid about food poisoning, that I avoid perfectly good sandwiches they have mayo on it.  I’d rather no mayo, but a lot of places in the UK have pre-made sandwiches and condiments already on them, which squick me out.  I’d rather have mayo on my fries chips.  🙂

Bonus: I’m so not a fan of reality telly.  However, I think I watch enough regular telly to make up for it.  😉

      It might be a bit expensive with the flight and all. 😉 Good luck with the unpacking and organizing!
