Tagged!

Thanks to CLC of "Please Give Me Back My Heart" I have been tagged for the very first time!

For this game of blogger tag:

Mention six quirky, yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself. Tag six other bloggers by linking to them. Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they’ve been tagged. If you participate, let the person know who tagged you you’ve posted your quirks!

Quirk #1 - I have this thing about doors. I cannot stand open doors - closets, cupboards, etc. I will go around shutting doors. If you want to drive me slowly buggy, leave a door ever so slightly ajar. I may be at your home and I will shut your doors for you . . .

Quirk #2 - I have to sleep in pajamas. No matter how hot it gets (temp wise - minds out of the gutter people!) I must be appropriately attired for sleeping. The reasons are not so much prudishness (or even religious) as practical and paranoid. I have to wear pajamas in the event of a fire. Yes, in the event of a fire, because I do not want to be standing sans accoutrements outside my house when the firemen show up. I know I would die trying to find clothing and I have a few other things (people perhaps) I would much rather grab on my way out. I wouldn't want to waste precious escape time on trying to find a pair of pants and a matching clean shirt . . .

Quirk #3 - (Boy, this is harder than I thought!) As Mrs. Spit will attest, I have a propensity for overuse of ellipses . . . (and if that isn't spectacularly boring, I don't know what is!)

Quirk #4 - I could carry on a conversation with a rock. Don't ask; just use your imagination and you would probably get it right. I would say it is a gift, but some people would just call it "talking to hear myself talk." (Hey, at least the rock never interrupts . . .)

Quirk #5 - I will wash and fix my hair before going to the hair salon to have it - ahem - washed, cut and styled. Similarly, I could be at death's door and I will shower, fix up and dress nice to visit the doctor when I am sick and supposed to look awful. If I have not done this as preparation prior to my appointment, I am probably deceased.

Quirk #6 - No matter how comfy they might be, I just cannot bring myself to wear sweatpants outside of the house for errand running - even if not planning to get out of the car. Sweatpants are for exercise, gym class or for sleeping in - on the off chance there might be a fire.

Tagging: Kristin (An Ordinary Life); Judy (I Just Can't Keep My Mouth Shut!); Just Me; Kim (OB Nurse); Searching; & Kathy (Three of a Kind Working on a full house)

I've been tagged for this one too. I can't leave the bedroom without making the sure the closet door is firmly shut either. ; )

You are so adorable, love the quirks. One of my many quirks is I can't eat cheap chocolate, only the good stuff. What's up with that? I also wanted to give you a (Hug) and let you know I've been thinking about you and your family.

You are so funny! I am still perfectly happy sitting on a chair in my mom's bathroom as she gives my long hair a quick trim, just as she has the last 27 years. I can count the times I've had my hair cut at a salon on one hand. Styled only for prom and when I'm in weddings. So funny that you get all primped up beforehand. :) I might do this today or tomorrow if my nerves are shot and I need something to take my mind off everything.
