Six Unimportant Quirks About Myself

I’ve been swamped both at work and at home that I haven’t had time to write. Today’s entry is not related to perfume, but for a tag I recently received from Rose (sorry it took me this long to write it!).

Here are the rules from Rose’s site: Link to the person that tagged you. Post the rules on your blog. Share six un-important things/habits/quirks about your self. Tag 6 random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs. Let these random people know that they are tagged by leaving comments in their blog. Let your tagger know when your entry is up.

Six Unimportant things/habits/quirks about myself:

1. I don’t like insects, especially spiders and cockroaches. I remember one time I saw a spider on the wall, my first reaction was to scream, and amazingly, the spider fell off the wall!? I swear my scream was not so loud that it would have vibrated the solid wall. Now that I am older, I’m a bit less bothered, but I still don’t like bugs.

2. I didn’t like to drink milk when I was little, and I still don’t like it now. When I was around four-years-old, my mom would give me milk in a bottle. While she was not watching, I poured it down the toilet. I was in such a rush and feeling guilty at the same time that I forgot to flush it. Ok, that wasn’t very smart. Learning from my mistake, my next tactic was to pour the milk down the bathtub. It was a brilliant idea because it didn’t involve flushing and drawing attention. For some strange reason, the milk I poured down started to “regurgitate” as soon as my mom turned on the tub water a while after. I was four, so there were many things I didn’t understand, and I definitely had a tough time explaining that one.

3. I am a complete shopaholic. I shop when I am happy; I shop when I am sad. It makes me happier when I am happy, and it lifts my spirits when I am sad.

4. I don’t drink very much alcohol. I turn completely red if I have even one sip. One time, I was at my boyfriend’s family party. I had maybe 1/10th of a glass of wine, and I started turning beet red. It didn’t help that I was wearing a burgendy top. His cousin walked over and started cracking up, and said, “Wow, you match your shirt!”.

5. I’m a perfectionist. I like things that are important to me to be perfectly clean and organized. So I’m not a neat freak all the time, just sometimes.

6. I hate the sound of metal scraping against metal. It makes my inside twist and turn, and I become very unpleasant to deal with.

How quirky are you:

Sandy, Hani, Tink, Michelle, Stephanie, and Elin?

    Whoa! Okay, this is scary, but we must have been separated at birth! I share all of those in common with you! Except, I never poured the milk down the toilet….I poured it into the bathroom sink.

    Thanks so much for the tag :) I’ve been hit a few times this week, so I’ll try to get it up soon! :)

  2. Linda Says:

    Hi twin! LOL. I actually poured milk down the bathroom sink before, but I don’t remember how that went so I didn’t include it in the post. I wonder who else shares them in common? We might all have been separated at birth. :P

  3. Michelle Says:

    I haven’t done one of these in a while! I am the essence of quirky so I better get writing…

  4. Linda Says:

    Hi Michelle…ooo, can’t wait to see your list. Hahaha. ;)

  5. Michelle Says:

    OK – I am done, in between corresponding with a woman trying to figure out if one of our dresses will fit her. See what I go through late at night? No wonder I drink…hehehe! Back to work!

  6. Rose Says:

    Linda! I also dont drink milk when I was young! I started to get used to the taste of cold milk when I started to work, which i have for my morning cereal and muesli! And I also not a alcoholic! One sip, my whole body (not only face) turn red and itchy! I still remember the 1st time i had alcoholic drink, i have those itchiness for almost a week! Now, slightly better, but can still turn my face red! Hahaha!

  7. Tink Says:

    We have all but number 2 in common.

    I’ll be putting this on blog soon!

    #3 is so like me, too! Shopping is the right solution for any occasion!

  11. Linda Says:

    Your quirks are awesome, Michelle. Does that even make sense?

    Rose – Yikes, your alcohol reaction is worse than mine. My body turns red also but it doesn’t itch.

    Tink – Awesome! Hope you enjoy writing about your quirks…hahaha. I will definitely look out for your feature! Thanks in advance. :)

    Nissa – I agree. Nothing like a good o’ retail therapy!

  12. Sara Says:

    I must agree with you on Numbers 1 and 6. I hate bugs all together, and metal scraping together makes me think of nails on a chalk board.
