So allow me to babble about myself for a minute.
Here are the directions:
1. Link back to 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.
Here are my 6 unspectacular quirks.
1. I fear crowds. Maybe not "fear", but I panic. Like, wringing my hands and twitching and looking around nervously because I feel like I'm in the way and if one more person touches me I will freakin' LOSE IT. Todd knows this and he is fantastic. He'll move me to the nearest wall or to the edge of the crowd or just stand in front of me with his back to the crowd. And he's much like a wall, so it's comforting. Thanks babe.
2. I say "interesting...." when I have absolutely no response to something someone has just said. "My chicken just won't stop pacing around the coop! Can you believe that?!"
3. I always think I have something in my teeth. I'm constantly checking my teeth in the mirror (or in a knife, if I'm at the table...although I'm discreet). Dinner dates are murder.
4. I can't go out of town without cleaning my apartment. Taking the trash and recycling out, scrubbing the tub, vacuuming (but that's fun stuff) and doing laundry. The thought of coming home and needing to do ANYTHING ruins the whole vacation.
Guess what I'll be doing tonight?
5. I have hyperacute hearing. Steve used to say I had superhearing. I can hear something rattling in the wall in my office and I've called facilities so many times to fix it, they think I'm crazy. One guy even asked if anyone else could hear it. So now I hit on the wall a lot to try and make it stop (which it does....for a minute). I mute the commercials (if I have the remote) because my head needs a break when watching TV. I hate whistling (she says as she hears someone in the hallway....whistling). It should be a happy sound, but I feel like it just adds to the already excessive amount of noise I have to tolerate on a daily basis. If you don't have to make noise, don't make noise.
6. It is imperative that the toilet paper pull from over the top, rather than from underneath. And I am not opposed to actually changing it in people's houses. People I don't even know. Underneath may be their preference, but when I'm sittin' on their potty, it's over the top. But I'm considerate, so I'll put it back the way they had it when I leave.
To Todd's friends with whom we will be staying next week - consider yourself warned.
Okay! Time to tag. I'm so sorry, guys. But I know that every bad thing that happens to me is a direct result of breaking a chain letter in 5th grade. Swear.To.Gawd.
