Six Quirky Things About Me

Max tagged me for this Meme. She was very creative in her answers, I have a challenge ahead of me to come up with things. :) I decided to look up the word, "quirky" because I want to make sure I do this right. Webster's Dictionary said, "A peculiarity of behavior; an idiosyncrasy". So then I decided to look up idiosyncrasy, and it said, "a characteristic, habit, mannerism, or the like, that is peculiar to an individual." Those definitions help a little.


1. I am very picky about the way the dishwasher is loaded, and I have to go back and reload things that my family members put in wrong. I know....a little obsessive compulsive. I'm not sure why I'm not like that in the rest of my life.

2. I get cold when I sleep. I have to sleep with two layers of pajamas in the winter.

3. I analyze handwriting for a hobby. I can't help but look over people's shoulders as they are writing, to get a peek.

4. If I am driving down the road and see someone in a precarious position (like someone on a ladder fixing a lightpost) I have to say a prayer for protection for them. If I see someone that needs help, I have to stop and offer help. (Maybe I should have just listed codependent?) :)

5. I love cats and could be one of those cat ladies with 20 cats roaming around the house.

6. I can't sleep in a messy bed. I have to have all of the covers spread equally and neatly across the bed.

Okay, I'm going to tag: Native Minnow Amberlilies Welcomed Insanity and Psycho Intern

I do the same thing with the dishwasher. Since I've been pregnant, J and M have helped me out with dishes but I always end up rearranging everything when they're done. I also make sure all the rooms in the house are clean (not sparkling clean, but everything put away) before I go to bed. I think it comes from my mother always telling me if there was a fire in the middle of the night I wouldn't be able to get out if my room was messy. :o)

I'll get to this eventually. It's kind of sad, but it does require some thinking. I've got one so far.

Hello D,

Thank you for having participated :D!
Now, let's see what quirky things you have:

1- Don't worry about it; we all have some sort of obsessive compulsive behaviour lol. I find this quirkiness a healthy one!
2- Now that's quirky! Two layers of pajamas? Wow...
3- That is an interesting hobby: I loved it!!! So, I bet you can tell a lot about a person's personality by the way he/she writes, right?
4- This is so nice!! :)
5- Really?
6- I am like this as well! We have something in common lol....

This was a great meme, D: thanks :)!
