Week of Quirks - Post V

Hmmmm...well, today being my last day of quirky confessions, I hope to shock each one of be warned now, you may want to weep, run to the corner, and suck your thumb. If you keep reading...know that you're doing so at your own risk.

Quirky Confession #12 - Rolls of paper always have to roll off the same way. Toilet paper and paper towels all have to be torn from the top of the roll...not the backside. There's someone in our office who insists on putting the roll on the wrong way....I have to go and correct it. I know others feel the same way I do, because sometimes someone else has fixed it for me. I so appreciate that.

Quirky Confession #13 - I absolutely cannot go a day without popping my knuckles. When I get stressed I pop them more frequently. I am, however, not my friend Ray who can somehow pop every joint in her body...I'm not kidding. It's kinda comical to watch her go through her ritual of joint popping.

Quirky Confession #14 - If a recipe has more than 10 ingredients, I'm probably never going to make it. To that point, I have cookbooks from Ina Garten, Giada DeLaurentiis, and Alton Brown but haven't cooked anything from them because I just can't stay focused long enough to make it through the ingredient list.

Quirky Confession #15 - I have an unhealthy addiction to ice cream.

Oh...and I used to have this OCD tick where I had to type out conversations. It was like I had an imaginary keyboard and I would just type everything I heard. Weird, eh?

Well, I hope you guys have enjoyed...or not, I really don't care ha! week of quirky confessions. Honestly I could probably keep going, but the fact I came up with 15 is a little terrifying. Guess the meds are working after all....

OMG- I do that too! I ALWAYS change it so that the paper rolls off the top.

A confession: I even do this at other peoples homes too (eek)

Ha! The toilet paper thing is on my 6 quirky thing!

Your #15 reminded me of when I was younger I would replay things in my head to sound like I was reading a book. I used to want to be a writer. Crazy!!

I love ice cream too. I also change the toilet paper, but have a little terrorist who thinks its funny to grab the end and run from room to room until the entire roll is on the ground.

Vanessa said...

yes, double dipping in your comments section, love the new layout!

Phew! At least I know I'm not alone in the world with all my quirks! Thanks for stopping by everyone!

Vanessa: My terrorists don't like the rolls of TP unless their on the ground already. Then they'll shred it in nice little bits. And if they can get their little paws on the trash can...oh forget it...they make quick work of any bit of tissue, TP, napkin or paper towel they find!

I really like this layout too...I think I might actually keep this one for more than a couple of weeks. ;-)

I was scrolling down and looking for something quirky in that list!! You and I are the REAL sane ones. I do like to look at those beautiful recipes with all the ingredients, but when they start calling for things I've never heard of, I'm out. I'm convinced that the people who write those books have no children - or live-in nannies where they can just jump in the car and head out to the international market (yeah, where IS the international market, anyway?) and pick up those ingredients that I can't even pronounce!! Don't get me started on the toilet paper/PT's or I'll never climb down off my soap box! ;)
(It just popped into my head that I have no idea what a soap box is. Is it anything like a milk crate?)
Oh, and I'm eating ice cream right now. Mmmm...
