Quirky 101

A little Wednesday fun. Join me, won't you?

  • I could drink sparkling apple cider every. single. day.
  • I'm weird about what I throw away at work. (I won't pitch receipts or anything with personal info).
  • I shred all our receipts. I've always done this, but it only reinforced my belief in that when someone got some of our credit card information right before we went out of town to a wedding.
  • I love handmade. Love love Etsy.
  • I take the People news quiz at the end of each week - and yes, I'm proud of myself when I get all the right answers.
Happy hump day! What are some fun facts about you?

We both did miscellaneous posts today. :)

Oh man, I have alot of quirks. Like A LOT. Here are a few that I can come up with on the fly:

1. I have gray & purple towels in my bathroom. I will only use the purple ones in the evening and the gray ones in the morning. I arrange them each day so that the one closest to the shower is the one I should be using (so in the morning I put the purple one closest to the shower, in the evening I put the gray one closest to the shower).
2. I think there is only one way to do alot of things. Like slice an onion or fold a towel. I have a hard time watching people do it differently than I would...
3. Every time I eat an apple, I twist off the stem while saying the alphabet. I think in elementary school someone said the letter that you end on when the stem comes off is the first letter of your future husbands name. I continue to do this even though I am almost 29 years old. I guess I think it will give me some incite into the man I will marry. I shoudl probably start tracking the letters I land on in a spreadsheet to see if a trend exists. Then when I meet someone in the bar whose names starts w/ a certain letter, I can feel more certain about our destiny.

Yes, I am odd. But I am fully aware of that and I love quirky people! :)

@Lisa: I do that apple thing, too - and when I was six, it landed on "I", which resulted in literally 15 years of being teased about marrying my childhood friend Israel!

I love handmade too ...and the People quizzes are so much fun!! Happy Wednesday!!

Hmmm... that reminds me that I need to start shredding more stuff. I've actually just started using cash at more places so there isn't any personal info on the receipt.

I LOVE Etsy. So much so that I'm probably going to open a shop soon to fund my purchases. Yippie!

1. I cannot go to bed at night if my Kitchen is a mess. The rest of the apartment can be a COMPLETE mess but the counters must be wiped, the dishes done and the floor swept and mopped in the kitchen.

2. I'm obsessed with checking email: I blame it on having a blackberry.

3. I'm very messy-organized. Come over to visit me and my apartment will look spotless and everything will be in order. Just don't open the closet in the guest bedroom or the cupboards in my armoire in the living room :)

Fun post, Becky!

Awww! This is so cute. I love etsy, too! What I really want is to learn how to hand make stuff myself. I'm trying, haha.

Let's see...

1. I get excited over things like brand new mascara.
2. I could watch the movie "Newsies" over and over again.
3. It takes me forEVER to get comfortable when laying down! I will toss, turn, wiggle, and sqirm until I find exactly the right spot. It drives my boyfriend NUTS. lol.
4. I wrap my wet hair in a cotton t-shirt instead of a towel.
5. I have a weakness for the cheesiest of cheesy chick flicks, and classic 80's movies.
6. I take magazine articles to heart. It's extremely nerdy of me!

Great post! <3

1) I have a huge crush on Lil' Wayne and I blush profusely whenever his music comes on.
2)My weakness is melted chocolate.
3) I treat Trader Joe's like it is my playground and I would love to live there if I could.
4) I cannot go anywhere without Hall's Cough drops, even without a cough. Yikes.
5) I grew up worshipping Atoosa Rubenstein, once the editor of Seventeen Magazine.

That was fun.
