Unspectacular Quirks - Hmmm Do I Have Any? Oh yeah..

My "God Sister" Kristi, has tagged me on this little challenge to list six unspectacular quirks of mine.  I hope I can narrow it down to six because I am a walking "quirk fest"!  :)

1.)  I cannot touch paper after my hands have been wet, especially after I have washed dishes.  I can use paper towels, but even when my hands are dry, they are so sensitive that I can't touch any paper for at least 5 minutes or so.  It's like fingernails on a chalk board to me.  Weird!

2.) You wouldn't think so if you looked at my desk, but I have a strong need to have things in some kind of order.  I recently helped somebody move and had to restrain myself from taking over and giving orders to everybody as to how it should all be done.  Hmmm, control freak?  I don't know, I think it is more of an ability to see things in a big picture view.  I dissect things in my mind.  I should probably harness this and turn it into a business, but I don't think I'd have many friends.  Everybody hates the organized person...look at that poor Martha Stewart.

3.)  I sing all the time.  In the car, my children retreat to their Ipods so they can drown out my constant singing.  I doubt that I sound very good, but I just can't help it!!  I love music!!

4.)  I rarely go outside without sunglasses.  Does this count as a quirk?  I can't see outside without my sunglasses because my eyes are very light sensitive (and blue) and they water in bright sunlight.  I'm sure some folks wonder if I think I'm some kind of  Supah Stah!

5.)  I am a very annoying news junkie - especially political news.  Rarely a day goes by when I don't say to somebody "did you hear about such and such?" I feel I must relay the latest news to my friends and family, especially my poor husband.  I know it probably drives them crazy.

6.)  When I laugh really hard, I cry.  There have been some occasions when something hilarious has happened and I end up with a look of anguish and tears streaming down my face.  This always baffles my kids. They usually stop laughing and ask me if I'm okay.  

I now have to tag six people.  I'll tag MomKimberlyKarla, and my new blogging friends, Jamey, KGraham, and Beth. Here are the rules:

1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

I sing ALL THE TIME, too! I make up songs about things, I sing about dinner, cleaning, picking up toys, etc.

These are great! Thank you for playing!!

When I am cleaning up after the dogs I sing to the tune of the Abba song "Super Trooper." But instead I say "Super Pooper oh where is my scooper. Who did this number one? I know you are outside having fun while I'm in here having none."

Jamey said...

Thanks for the tag! my first. will get working on it as soon as I drop off the kids at school.

Karla said...

Hey vicki, I just posted my quirks. I know what you mean about organization and wanted to organize even other people's places. I felt the exact same way that day you speak of. I need a system and a plan of action and don't do well with random unorganized situations.

Kimberly said...

I just put up TWO new blog posts, one is my quirks! Are ya proud of me?

Beth said...

Hello again, Vicki. I did it! I wrote about six quirks AND I tagged you back. Check it out! This was my first tag too! :)
