More Quirks

Michele at Just A Minute tagged me for the Six Quirky Things meme. I have participated in this one before, but since I'm so full of quirks, I'm sure I could come up with six more. Ha! Ha!

1) Link to the person who tagged me.
2) Mention the rules.
3) Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about myself.
4) Tag six other blogger´s by linking to them.
5) Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they’ve been tagged.


In no particular order:

  • I put at least one ice cube in my milk. It must be very cold.


  • My pj shirt cannot have any wrinkles or be bunched up underneath me. Even if I have to get back up and straighten it out.


  • I love onion flavor in cooking, but can't stand how they feel in my mouth, so I pick them out. Even if they're quite small.


  • Some people like to wear their hair the same. Not me. Not ever. I change it all the time. Long. Short. In between. Ponytail. Sticks. French braid. Barrette. Clip. Up. Down. Even if I do like it, it doesn't last long. Grows too fast to maintain a style. Plus I'm fickle.
















































  • I'm a total freak about doors and windows being closed and locked at our house (at least those that concern me). If it occurs to me that something might be open or not have been locked, I have to get out of bed, walk all the way through the house, and check. Then it's hard to go back to sleep because I'm sort of awake. Sigh.


  • When I near an intersection while driving, I often look at the crosswalk light to determine my approach. If it's still on WALK, I know it's clear to head on through the intersection. If it's blinking, I'm probably okay, too. But if it's a solid red hand, I slow down, because the traffic light is about to turn yellow/red.


I think I'll tag some Twitter pals:
Robin (the Pensieve one)
Alyssa
Phyllis
Amber
Renae
Lisa B
Karen
Kytikat
Kim

I know, that's more than six, but it's just what I felt like doing. The more the merrier, right? Feel free to join in, even if you're not tagged. Consider this an open tag invitation to you because I'm tired and have to go to bed now. I can't type any more links.

I have a few of those same quirks. If I think I didn't lock the back door I have to get up and check. And I don't like my pjs or sheets or blankets wrinkled or bunched up - they must be smoothed out.

Okay, guess I have to come up with 6 DIFFERENT ones.. huh? :)

Oh my, we have a lot in common. Ice in milk. The pj thing. Yeah. So much so that I gave up pj's because I couldn't deal with the wrinkles.

Now, I love onions. But the hair--yep. I'm constantly changing mine but didn't know it was a quirk til someone told me most women change their hairsyle once every 10 years. WHOA! I change mine way more than that!

And yeah, those ocd tendencies keep me getting up and checking on things too! LOL

I'm with you on the hair thing. Hate keeping it the same. It's absolutely killing me to grow my bangs out right now. But the last couple of times they looked stupid shorter, so that's keeping me from cutting them.

I'm the EXACT same way with onions!

Karen {simply a musing blog} said...

Who knew you were so weird? ;) I'll get mine done early next week - I'm off for the weekend. woo hoo...

Renae said...

Thanks for thinking of me. :) I haven't done any memes in awhile, but I'll add this to my notes as I ponder my peculiarities.

Those aren't bad quirks. :) I love that you change your hair often. I try to but always end up nearly the same. :)

Dawn @ My Home Sweet Home said...

My mother put ice in her milk, too.

Love all the hair shots! I like #2!

I yell "Shut the door!" all day long. I went in the garage last night before going to bed, and the garage door was wide open. It freaked me out 'cause anyone could have walked right in our house.

Ok, my meme is up!
