Six Habits/Quirks I have ~ Tagged Again!


Well, I was tagged by a fellow blogger who hosts the lovely Oliver Rain to list 6 non-important habits or quirks about myself. This seems difficult, but once I get going, I'm sure I will find six things. So, here goes.

1- I don't like mixing different textures in food. Like brownies with nuts, or chocolate pieces in ice cream. I do like chocolate chip cookies, however. See, this is quirky already.

2-My husband gets really frustrated with me because I hardly ever finish whatever beverage is in my glass. I will drink right down to the last inch of liquid and then that's it, I'm done. Drives him nuts. I have no idea why I do it. He thinks it has something to do with my childhood. I just let him wonder. Hey, if he wants the rest of it, he can have it.

3- While most other people hate wrapping gifts, I love it. I also love buying wrapping paper, but I haven't let that get out of hand. My husband thinks I should start a business wrapping gifts for people at Christmas but I figured if I did that, I would suddenly hate wrapping gifts. I love the challenge of wrapping each one in a unique and creative way, adding vintage ribbons or silk flowers. Kids get happy meal toys tied to their birthday packages as gift toppers. Vintage wrapping paper is fun, too.

4- When I was a teenager I had a shopping bag collection. Not just any bag, but fancy expensive store bags from New York, etc. I confess, I still have some of them. I've thrown most away but couldn't part with a few. VERY quirky. I'd probably be a great candidate for that show where they make you put all of your stuff out on the lawn and get rid of three quarters of it, if I were able.

5- I also have trouble throwing my used calendars away. I like to go back years later and read about what I was doing. Again, that organization show would love getting a hold of me.

6- Wow, so I've made it to #6! So far, so good, I guess! Now I'm wondering why I am going to POST these quirky habits of mine for the world to read. So, I've saved the best for last. I think. Whenever I go out to eat and order a hamburger with french fries I ALWAYS put some of the fries on my burger. Mmmmmm. This negates the number one quirk listed here at the top, but hey, no one said it all had to make sense, it just had to be QUIRKY.

So there you go. I am going to tag Mrs. Tuneful over at A Tuneful of Sugar because she needs to get something posted on her blog and I can say this because she is my big Sister. And I'm also going to tag Erin of The Classy Rabbit. Enjoy, ladies! Can't wait to read your list. . . hope you don't mind!

Here are your rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you...if you need help linking, just ask!
2. Post the rules
3. Share 6 non-important habits/quirks about yourself
4. Tag 2 or 3 other people

Have fun!

What a fun list of quirkiness! I've never tried french fries on my hamburger.. I love the idea of attaching Happy Meal toys to presents!

Have a GREAT weekend!

I have some of your quirkiness tendancies but not all of them. I hope to remember to post my quirks this weekend!
