A little while ago, Emily tagged me ago to share six unspectacular quirks about myself.

Here’s what you do:

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 six things:

1. I could not live without iced tea.

2. When I put away clean dishes, I put the ones that just came out of the dishwasher on the bottom of the stack in the cupboard. Same with silverware. This way we eventually cycle through using all of them. I would like to blame Martha Stewart for planting the idea to do this in my brain but I don't think she ever suggested it.

3. If I hear an odd noise in the house at night, I will go see what's causing it. If my life were a horror movie, I'd be the first one killed off.

4. I can spend hours in a Hallmark or any other card shop.

5. I could eat a different grilled cheese sandwich every day. The last one I had was Laughing Cow cheese on wheat bread and it was really good.

6. I always check the ceiling for spiders before I turn off the light to go to sleep.

I have been putting off posting this because I've been too lazy to choose who else to tag and then create links to their blogs and go comment on them. But I will do that now.

I'm tagging Jenny, Deepa, Murali, Twyla/Lindsey, Loralynn and Brook.

And, if anyone else wants to do this one, leave me some comments so I can come read about your quirks.

I've never considered the clean dishes rotation thing. Maybe because we go through dishes like water. But I'll have to consider that for stuff we don't use much.

But my favorite is #3... that you would be first killed if your life were a horror movie. That's hilarious.

Twyla and Lindsey said...

What! I have no quirks! Just kidding. We'll play along, it just may take a couple of days. Have a great weekend. Twyla

Jennifer said...

I do the exact same thing with the dishes! The same theory also applies to underwear, towels, bedsheets, and jeans. It's a sickness. I know.

mmmm grilled cheese!

And now you might have *me* checking for spiders!

Smilingsal said...

That's actually a very good idea to put away clean dishes and silverware like that.

I am going to start doing it!

I'm like you, I have to have my iced tea daily! lol. I walk with my head down, always looking for spiders, but now it's mostly for scorpions...yuck! I wash my hands constantly, and if I have to, I use santizer instead. LOL. I guess that's not super quirky. I can't think of anything else at the moment. Hope you're having a nice weekend Patty! niki

Well, I could do grilled cheese everyday.....some weeks I do, but it's the same ole grilled cheese....nothing fancy-smancy.

I never thought of rotating dishes and silverware....I have a feeling, this is going to bug me, and I too will start doing this. Maybe that explains why the top plates are nicked, and the lower ones look new....brilliant.

Hey, my first tag thingy!! :D How cool! Or not, depending on which side of my list of unspectacular quirks you are. :p Thanks! :D

And now I am totally craving a grilled cheese sandwich with laughing cow cheese. I've never done that before, but I can imagine it SOOOO well!! :insertHomerdrool:

Can't. Breathe. Still. Laughing. Dishes all need equal usage time - brilliant! And the fact that you are worried about spiders, but not intruders is just too much. You have a new faithful reader of your blog.
