Am I quirky or just weird?

Maybe I'm totally and completely normal. No. On second thought, I'm definitely not normal. Ask esposo.

So my friend L. over at Glittering Generalities tagged me to do the quirky meme. I've been putting it off because I am having a hard time thinking of six quirky things about myself. Here are the rules:

1. Link to the person that tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

I probably won't tag six random people. I'm just not that kind of person, you know? However, I know I have a few readers out there, so if any of you are so inclined, do this meme yourself and leave a comment back here. Would that work? ;-) I only know a few bloggers, and Amy hasn't started on her new blog yet, L. sent me this to begin with, Serial Quilters seems to be down, so I guess that means it's up to you, Manders! Ha ha...

Here are my quirky things:

1. Even if I can't stand a book, I will read it to the end. Mumbling all the way, why am I reading this piece of crap? OCD, I guess. I still love reading the same Frog and Toad book to son every night, though.
2. Speaking of OCD, I have to have all of my clothes (and everyone else's clothes) in the house hanging the same direction. Esposo, who has known me know for oh, ten years or so, still has no idea what I'm talking about when I say this. So I shall explain. If you look at the hangar, the shirt is hung with the front facing so that the opening on the hook of the hangar goes to the left. All of the hooks toward the back of the closet. It totally irks me to see a hook with the opening to the front of the closet. And though I'm a total slob, I have to do the laundry around here because I just get irritated thinking about someone else doing it.
3. I have the messiest desk of anyone I know. Still, I usually know where everything is. But that doesn't stop me from, say, buying an extra roll of tape or package of envelopes every now and then.
4. It totally disgusts me to see television commercials with people brushing their teeth. Ew. Or shaving. You just know they are going to cut themselves. I have to change the channel.
5. I once took a private pilot's class to get over my fear of flying. It sort of helped. I don't actually have any flight time logged, but I do have half of a pilot's license.
6. I am a geek girl. I love it when guys come to me to solve their computer problems. And I totally love sci-fi movies and t.v.; Sliders (the old cheesy Sliders), MST3K, Red Dwarf, The Ice Pirates, etc. I can't count the number of times I've seen Star Wars (the original, you know, not the "new" version!) or Blade Runner.

There you have it. So does that make me quirky or just weird?



  1. it makes you YOU!!!!
    Hence the reason I adore you so :)

  2. I'd say quirky. I admire your geekiness no end.
    (I think I could rival you for the messiest desk, though.)

  3. Why, thank you both! You're so sweet.

    Though, I think my desk sets a new standard for messiness. It is messy not only on top, but also in, and underneath. I'll take a photo tomorrow. :-)

  4. You started that hanger/closet thing when you were 12 years old because you didn't like the way your mother hung your clothes. The upside was that you did all your own laundry. Quirky? I approve! ravensmom
