#6 Unspectacular Quirk ~ I'll take Mine
I like my dogs, but not other peoples dogs. I like my cat, but don't particually enjoy other people's cats. I like my car - do not enjoy altogether riding in other people's cars. Enjoy visiting homes, but do not especially enjoy being in other peoples homes. Clearly have a quirkly hermit crab/ only like my own stuff weirdo-ness going on.
#5 Unspectacular Quirk ~ The Fan Obsession
I have to sleep with a fan on. Don't even talk to me about being in a completely silent room. I will go stark raving mad. This is why I don't like sleeping at other people's houses. They never have a frigging fan. Not a ceiling fan. A floor fan. Better yet, a loud obnoxious box fan. Now you're talking! And don't suggest a stupid white noise maker, or rain and ocean sound machine - fuggetaboutit. Not happening. Need a fan. Will work for fan. Must have a fan. All others need not apply. No fan, no shoes - no service. Totally unspectacular, if you ask me.
#4 Unspectacular Quirk ~ Cleanliness is Next to Godliness
When the house starts getting messier - I start getting moodier. I feel disorganized, things feel out of whack, I can't concentrate, I chew my nails, it bothers me to no stinking end. That's my quirk. I am completely ADD when it comes to a messy house. I cannot sit still - I cannot stand it. It puts me in a bad mood. And everyday that goes by that it's messy - I feel myself getting more and more frustrated. When I'm cleaning - I often sing out loud and feel like I'm purging. Sick. Sick. Sick behavior. Why can't I be like everyone else and just veg on the couch with no guilt? Instead, I see the mess - and literally can't relax. I'm rolling my own eyes at myself right now. That's why it's called a quirk.
As an IBS sufferer (a completely different meme) I have a long standing love affair with Charmin - aka the best toilet paper ever. I fold tp into neat little squared piles while I'm...you know. What I mean is, I pull and fold over one, two, three times and there I have a nice little blanket for...well, you know. I once got found out at a party, when I folded one too many of my little "blankets" in advance and left it on the top of the toilet paper roll. Seriously. I got called out! You know who you are, V! They still laugh about that one. Meanwhile, I'm still making blankets daily. Don't tell me you're all still wadding it all up in a crinkly messy ball of paper like when we were three? Puuuleeeaase, people. Maybe this is a spectacular quirk. I happen to find it pretty spectabulous.
#2 Unspectacular Quirk ~ Forgetful Jones locks the door...or did he?
I check locks several times at night. Before you launch into an OCD speech after #4 above, I do it because I can't remember if I did it already. I'm like Forgetful Jones over there. (If you actually remember him, then I love you by default, because it means you're either as old as me or older - I heart you) Just like when I'm pulling out of the garage and can't remember if I closed the garage door as I make my way up the street. My remedy for this 90 year old behavior? Saying out loud "I'm closing the garage door now" as I'm pushing the remote control. Sound crazy? Not as crazy as I look to the neighbors when every day they see me pull out and leave, and then come circling back in reverse five minutes later. They must think I'm crazy! I'm not - just quirky.
#1 Unspectacular Quirk ~ Shower Routine
And the winner is?!?!?!?! My #1 Unspectacular Quirk is that I absolutely shower the exact same way every time. There is no deviation. It's rinse, shampoo and leave to sit, wash face, shave, rinse. Conditioner and leave to sit for a few more, soap and scrub, rinse, and done. I just went through it my mind and it's interesting. Because I never even give it a thought when I'm in there. And I bet you don't either. I'll also bet the vast majority of you just thought about your shower routine and are thinking to yourself even now, "I guess I do the same thing everytime too." In the same order. Every time. We are, all of us, creatures of habit. And quirky. Oh, and I wish my shower head was as nice as this one. Dangit.
You just read it, so considered yourself tagged. We all want to know you're quirky junk.
