Quirky? Who, Me?

I've been tagged by Rachel at Christians in Good Company to list 6 Quirks about myself.

Here are the rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. List 6 unspectacular quirks.
4. Tag 6 bloggers by linking to them on your post and then commenting them to let them know that they are "it!"

1. I'm a neat nut. I'm forever adjusting and tweaky things. I go so far as to straighten the canned goods on grocery shelves and to fold sweaters from a department store display! (However, I would never straighten another person's things. I didn't say I was RUDE!)

2. I use a post-it for a bookmark. It works much better as it doesn't slide all over the place like a regular bookmark.

3. I go far beyond hate when it comes to bugs. I simply cannot tolerate them. My poor husband knows that if EVER any bug--no matter how small--finds its way into our home, there is no sleep until it has been destroyed. Further, the ENTIRE house must then be drenched with bug spray. We may one day die from poisoning, but we'll be bug free!

4. I sleep with socks on my feet. What can I say? My tootsies get chilly.

5. I eat the same thing for lunch every day: Martha's Vineyard Salad from Arby's. I used to eat Wendy's Mandarin Chicken Salad, but switched when I learned that the Arby's was lower in calories and carbs.

6. I must have a totally straight back chair to sit in as I've had back surgery. Therefore, if anyone else rides in the passenger side seat of our car, they will find the seat in a uncomfortable straight up position.

Here's who I'm tagging:

Kathy at Artis1111

Carol at Charli and me.

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound

Dawn at Dawn's Daybreak

Shelia at Note Songs

Debbie at Friday Friends

Have fun!

Thanks. I do some of the same things too. Kathy

Justine said...

Ooh girl, I'm with ya on the bugs in the house, although here in FL, you'd have to buy gallons of poisoning to get rid of all of them. Lately I've been finding earwigs in the house. Gross little suckers.

Justine :o )

Morning Smiling One!! I'll invite you over and you can 'straighten' some things in my house. lol I hate the bugs, too!! Nasty little critters! I see that tag and I'll try to get to it in a few days!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh I'm a "straightener", too. The post-it note idea is a good one. My car seat is pretty straight-up only 'cuz I'm a shorty and I need all the height I can get! ~ Robyn

Bridget said...

I have a few of those quirks too except my feet are always hot and i have to have them outside the covers. I'm going to try that salad...I didn't even know that Arby's had salads. My quirky little car thing is that I have to have a tennis ball tucked behind my ribs as I have a slippery spot that gets out of alignment without the support.

Funny... and totally you... those are the things that everyone should know in order to understand who you are deep down inside. Love you :)

I can't blame you for the post it note. I do the same thing.

Although I could never sleep with socks on my feet! Bothers me no end, it's so weird. But I love the toe socks. They are super comfy to wear around the house. :)

I see we have a lot in common :>) but maybe you won't think so after you read my post. LOL I hope you are having a splendid day :>)

Dawn said...

I wish I were more of a neat freak! I'm more so in theory instead of practice!! I also like my car seat straight up!

Thanks for tagging me. I'll be doing this in the next couple of days!

take care,

Dawn said...

I forgot to mention. A quahog is a kind of clam.

take care,

Needled Mom said...

Thanks for visiting. It's always nice to meet new friends in blogland.

I'm with you on the socks and the straight backs. I can't sleep until the feet are warmed and have been known to soak them in warm water before crawling into bed.

I'll have to try that salad as it looks pretty yummy.

Beverly said...

Thanks, Sally. I'll respond to the tag one day next week.

I tried to e-mail you, but it keeps bouncing back to me.

Cottage Rose said...

Love these tags, now I know a little it more about you. And I do the same thing as you in stores, it drives my Hubby nuts. But hey I see something on the floor in any store I pick it fold or put it back where it came from. Just being a good person. Have a great Thursday.


Cathy said...

I enjoyed reading about your quirks, and that's so cute the way you posted the pictures. :o)

What an interesting list? I have a question? Do you go to Arbys everyday to have your yummy salad? Now I have to try it, it must be yummy.
Have a lovely lunch today..

(Part I)

Who has seen the wind?

Neither I nor you;

But when the leaves hang trembling,

The wind is passing through.

(Part II)

Who has seen the wind?

Neither you nor I;
But when the trees bow down their heads,

The wind is passing by.

What a good idea about using post its as bookmarks- makes me wonder why I haven't been doing it all along.
