Quirky me

October 19, 2008 · 4 comments

Slouching Mom recently did a meme about oddities about herself.  She didn’t tag anyone specifically, but I figured since I am probably one of the last bloggers around to do this one, that I would tackle it.

I’m supposed to list 6 quirky, odd, strange things about myself.  I’m sure I have way more than that, but it’s a start!

  1. I can’t re-read books.  I remember every little thing about them as soon as I re-read the first sentence. (It’s annoying, btw)
  2. Sometimes I pretend I’m way cooler than I am….like today, I was awesomeness with my Pumpkin Spice Latte, Coach Suns, listening to Pink in my car. But really? Meh, not so much.
  3. I cannot effectively start my day without taking a shower.  Even if I am staying home ALL day.  I hate not being “ready”. And it is really just being clean and having my hair done; makeup is pretty irrelevant.
  4. I am ridiculously “cautiously optimistic” about things that happen to other people.  I believe that good things happen if you think they will; I believe bad things happen because they just do, but that being gloom and doom doesn’t get you anywhere. That’s not coming out right…I believe in living life and not dwelling on the crap; things generally work out one way or another… (That may need an example: ok, my dad’s cancer diagnosis – yes, it sucks. yes, he has to have surgery, BUT he’s fine now, the surgery will be fine. If he has to have chemo, he has to have chemo and we’ll get him through it…see? cautiously optimistic.  And yes, I’m the same way about me and mine. And no, I’ve not dealt with anything like that personally, so I would probably forget all of that and crawl into a corner and sob… see QUIRKY!!!
  5. I hate basketball.  But I do fill out my March Madness tournament bracket every year.
  6. I love the smell of puppies.
  7. *BONUS* I will open a can of Coke for just a couple of drinks, any time of the day or night.
  8. *BONUS* I actually enjoy drinking beer, wine, mixed drinks, but I couldn’t tell you the last time I was drunk.  Or even had a nice, long buzz going….

So there ya go, a few little quirks of mine.  If you want to play along, please feel free!! Let me know if you do!!

I like that you’re cautiously optimistic. We need more people like you.
