Happy hump day, everyone! I can’t believe how crazy this week has been at work. Not to worry, though – there are more reviews on the way! But first I wanted to touch on another piece of excitement.
I was tagged by both Chandra of Chandra’s Shenanigans and Greyce of Fighting with the scale to give you a list of quirks. I have to say, with all the games of tag out there, this subject is actually a fun one for me. It’s not too hard to think about what my quirks are 😉 So without further ado…
- Link back to the person that tagged you. (Done)
- Mention the rules on your blog (Check.)
- Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours. (This will be the hard part…)
- Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them (ha, suckers. payback’s a bitch.)
- Leave a comment for each tagged blogger, to let them know they have been tagged. (so you have no excuse that you didn’t know. don’t even try it.)
By the way, I’m keeping those little notes in parentheses from Chandra because I like them and because they are true.
Quirk #1: When I am walking, I tend to hold my hand out in some unusual position instead of swinging my arms from side to side. It’s hard to explain in words, but Bobby makes fun of me for it all the time. Basically, it’s like I’m walking down the sidewalk with my hand frozen in mid-air as if I was using my hands to talk and they got stuck that way. I don’t even notice until Bobby starts laughing and tells me to look down.
Side note: Bobby is the complete opposite. He swings his arms like a CRAZY person and I make fun of him for it all the time. I’m sure he will appreciate that I am telling you this.
Quirk #2: Here’s one related to food. When I was little, I used to make sure I chewed my food evenly on both sides of my mouth. You know how some people have a dominant side that is stronger because of all the extra chewing? Not me. I believed in total chew equality. I don’t think about it much when I’m eating nowadays, but every now and then I’ll remember what I used to do and then unconsciously start doing it all over again!
Quirk #3: I am forever running late. It’s a trait I inherited from my mom – I’m sure she will appreciate the shout out, too! My dad is the complete opposite, and my brother inherited his punctuality from him. So you can imagine what that was like growing up. Leaving for the airport? My dad and brother would be outside with the car running as my mom and I jumped in at the last possible second. Getting a ride to school? My dad and I would have time to stop for breakfast at Starbucks and Einstein Bros. while my mom contributed to my ever-growing number of detentions for tardiness. Yes, I got detention but no, I was not a badass – it was always for tardiness 😉 Good times!
I feel that at this point I should insert an I LOVE YOU MOM! She probably loves me extra right now, too.
Quirk #4: I am a serial gum chewer. I thought of this one because I have a piece in my mouth right now Every time I get a new pick of gum, it’s gone by the end of the day. To prove it to you, it’s now 11:45 am. I started a new pack this morning at 8:30 am with 14 pieces. Now there are 9 left. I pretty much toss it the minute it loses its flavor, but then I miss the chewing process so I quickly pop a new piece into my mouth. It’s a bad habit, which is why I don’t buy gum too often. But sometimes it’s just too tempting!
Quirk #5: How about a quirk about the blog? I’m not sure if anyone notices, but I often like to use colors to designate the food I eat. So if I say I had some spinach, I make it green. Well, now it’s like some sort of weird thing that I have to do with every post. I mean it’s pretty and all, but I just think it’s funny that for some reason I feel like I HAVE to do it. Just something I noticed about myself And now you all think I’m insane! Oh well, life goes on…I’m not insane, I promise!
Quirk #6: I absolutely despise the smell of raspberry chocolate lotion. It doesn’t make sense to me, because I eat chocolate, I eat raspberries…I even eat chocolate WITH raspberries. But for some reason, the smell of raspberry chocolate lotion makes me gag. I’m not kidding – I start to feel physically sick! Anyone who might know the reasoning behind this, let me know!
Well, now you know six of my quirks. I’m sure there are more, but I think that’s enough for one day – I’ve given you plenty of reasons to think I’m crazy cool! But I liked this one, actually, because laughing at myself is fun.
As for the game of tag that never ended? Well, I’m not technically “ending” it, but I am going to break the rules (gasp!) and be nice (I’m in a good mood, what can I say?) by not forcing anyone specific to do it. Therefore, I am opening it up to anyone who wants to play – you can even say I tagged you! I just aspire to be the kid on the playground that everyone likes 😉 Have fun!
