Let’s Hear it From Ms. Hyde!

I don’t have to convince anyone about my being weird. My wicked sisters are totally convinced that their Ate is one of the weirdest persons on the planet. Read on to know why they thought so.


Lest I forget, this is in response to SexyMom’s tag (also known as a meme): write 6 weird things about yourself.

  1. I’ve never had my ears pierced.
    Mom didn’t have my ears pierced when I was little. Then I decided for myself that I’ll never have my ears pierced…ever. I think it goes against what I consider to be natural. To “mangle” my earlobe just in order to put a piece of metal there, for purely aesthetic reasons…well, I don’t get it. And I’ll never get it. If you ever saw me on occasions wearing earrings, trust me, they’re clip-ons.

  2. I was a female magnet for attracting weirdos.
    I attracted a whole bunch of them. But I won’t go into the sordid boring details.To those who tried courting me and might be reading this blog – yep, I definitely thought you guys were weirdos. And one of you was a wacko who actually thought I was in love with him, heh. In your dreams!
  3. I’ve developed an acute perception of smell.
    I think this came about because of certain circumstances in my life, and I do think that pregnancy had something to do with it. They say that women develop a heightened sense of smell during their pregnancies. It was true for my case. But it seems that it has never left me, because until now I can still pick up scents like a rabid dog. Sometimes it works to my disadvantage, because I’d smell funny things that aren’t even smelled by other people. One time, I entered one of our lab rooms and smelled something funny. I immediately called one of our members to check it out – and although he claimed to have smelled it the moment he entered the room, a few minutes later he wasn’t so sure anymore. I ended up feeling like the boy girl who cried wolf. I opened the room and let it aerate to eliminate the smell.
  4. I don’t have the tolerance for wearing heels and other ladies’ shoes.
    I’m a sneakers person. I’ve had excruciating experiences wearing heels, which I am forced to wear during formal events like conferences. Those are death shoes for me. Two of my toes “died” when I was forced to wear them for more than 12 hours straight. Let’s not even talk about the blisters on my heels! I’ve come to the conclusion that I have Shrek feet, and no amount of squeezing will ever make my feet conform to those shoes. Nowadays, whenever I go to conferences, I bring my shoes with me. As soon as my presentation is over, within the soonest possible time, I switch back to my good ol’ sneakers. Never mind if I was wearing a suit!
  5. I still keep my two premolars which were removed when I had braces.
    I think of them as my “sacrificial lambs.” I had to lose them in order to gain my wonderfully sweet, orthodontically corrected smile. They remind me that sometimes, we have to lose in order to gain. It’s a wonderful lesson in life. Anybody wants to see the premolars? They’re still wrapped in gauze. The original gauze.
  6. I’ve never had a girl buddy. Don’t ask me why, but all of my close buddies were male. I don’t want to over-psychoanalyze myself on this one. I’m just stating a fact.

    I had a close buddy in college – we did a lot of things together. We jogged around the academic oval at UPD, we ate at Rodic’s, watched movies at SM City, spent long hours discussing religion, politics, teaching, students, quantum mechanics, relationships, life in general. We spent hours at the library studying together.

    His name is Baggy. I later married him.


I hope you had fun reading. :) I’m tagging the following people:


Karmi – the new kid on the block, now blogging from Chile. I’m touched that she has been inspired to blog.

Dimaks – fellow Tsukuburg resident and TsukubaDai student.

Bill Mitsuru – one of the finest writers in my blogroll. So let’s see how “crooked” you are. :)

    hahaha you kept your two premolars? that is definitely weird Kat! LOL :)

  2. Wil says:

    You’re a weirdo magnet? hehe. bakit kaya?

    I also kept some of my teeth when I had to have 2 or 3 of them removed so I could get braces. I had too many teeth for my mouth. hehehehe

  3. kathy says:

    Verns, who knows, maybe someday in the future those premolars would be worth something…given that I’d die rich and famous. :)

  4. kathy says:

    Hmm, I don’t know why!

    O pareho pala tayo! At first I was quite adamant about having my teeth removed; I had to psych myself over and over again about having the extractions. Anyway, I was too vain to give up. 😛

  5. Belle says:

    keeping those two premolars is really weird. you should have taken a picture of it and show it in this blog for us to see.

  6. niceheart says:

    My youngest son had his infected tooth pulled out a few months ago and I actually ask for it so I could keep it. I also still have the baby teeth that they have lost, for all three of them. :)

    As for wearing heels, I also wear them only on special occasions. I am under five feet kasi and I guess I just don’t want to feel intimidated by the tall people here in Canada. :)

  8. mitsuru says:

    to paraphrase robert de niro in taxi driver—

  9. Gypsy says:

    Waah! Bakit six lang?! Tinag ako ni Will for 15 (!) weird facts! Hmm….(suspicious look). Eniweis, re #5…(reassuring voice) you know, it’s okey to admit that you still believe in the tooth fairy..we will still (try to) understand and accept. 😉

  10. annamanila says:

    I love love love your kaweirdohan … you should have joined my ‘royal weirdness’ contest .. or didn’t the press releases reach you — haha

    You married your best friend. Awww The best kind of relationship — friends first then lovers.

    Funny! Entertaining! Bravo!

  11. SexyMom says:

    weird–you don’t wear heels! i love heels!
    about the teeth–you know,i have a collection of my kids’ teeth, and some of my friends find it not weird, but gross!

  12. kathy says:

    Belle, now *that* would be really weird! lol :)

  13. kathy says:

    Awww, you kept all their teeth? I am also planning to keep all of my daughter’s milk teeth. 😉

    You must have “tall” recessive genes, because your son Reggie is such a tall guy! Or maybe he got his height from his dad?

  14. kathy says:

    Oo, sige na dimaks… *wink* Onegai ne!

  15. kathy says:

    Yay! Sige, will look forward to reading your response post. 😀

  16. kathy says:

    Haha! Gypsy, you’re a naughty girl. 😛 Those molars better be worth a fortune, ang tagal ko pa namang tinago.

  17. kathy says:

    Oh my, coming from you, I feel really proud of my kaweirdohan ha. :) What can I say, birds of the same feather… 😛

  18. kathy says:

    Gross? Hmm, but I don’t really think so. Niceheart also kept her son’s teeth. I’m thinking of doing the same. I wish my parents thought of that, actually. :)
