Quirks

I got Tagged a while back by Susan Catmull and Andrea Haag...sorry it took me so long but I had so much to post!!

1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are my QUIRKS and facts about me:

1: For as long as I can remember I have stopped the microwave on seven...or multiples of seven. It is the weirdest thing but it drives me crazy when it stops on any other number. So you know who used the microwave last if it is stopped on seven or its multiples!

2: Since I had Chicken Pox in second grade I have "picked my head". My family says I "pick my head" but I am actually not really picking...I like the feel of my hair on my fingers. It's very similar to the feel of your eyelashes on your fingers. I know weird huh? So next time you see me I gaurantee I will "pick my head" at one point during our visit!

3: I am VERY competitive....VERY. Christian and I can't play games together very often because I HAVE to win! Guitar Hero is the worst! The last time we played together I didn't talk to him for a while afterward because he won! Pathetic huh? You should have seen my family playing volleyball on Memorial Day. It was fun but we are all competitive and so there was a lot of fighting about rules and scores. It's pretty comical!

4: When I do the dishes I have to have the same amount of silverware in each slot. It drives me crazy when I am short silverware...I hate when 4 slots have 3 pieces of silverware and the other 2 have 2. There have been a couple times when I have put clean silverware in just to make it even.

5: I have a knack for LETTERING. I can come up with really cute fonts and put them on paper. I love it! I love that I can put a cute header on my scrapbook pages that totally makes the page. I'm so happy I was given this talent because it has saved me a lot of stress. The best part of this is that I don't even have to use a pencil first...I just go at it with a marker and it looks great. One day I will publish my own fonts and sell them...you'll see!

6: I have major buyers remorse! Actually I have shoppers remorse because I regret stuff even before I buy it. 80% of the time when I am shopping I put back most of what I have. Yesterday I went to Target with my sister-in-law and I had 5 things in my cart. When I got to the checkout I had decided that I was only buying 2 items. I HATE it but I guess it saves us money!

7: I swallow my gum. I know gross huh? I eat gum like it is candy. It is one of my favorite things. I have swallowed gum for as long as I can remember. I have one more thing to say on this matter.
Myth: Chewing gum takes 7 years to pass through the human digestive system
BUSTED: In the words of Barbara Mikkelson, "Gum is eliminated as human waste in the same way - at the same rate- as any other swallowed matter."
If gum took 7 years to pass through me I would have exploded 10 years ago!!!

There you have it! My quirks! I usually am not into tagging but this one was fun and I realized how crazy, weird I am. I LOVE IT!!

Okay here are my tags:
1. Brittany

The sevens thing is some anal retentive quirk passed from my dad Im pretty sure.........susan and sarah do the same crap. nellie and I do the full cart through the store......empty cart right before checkout thing too. I think it is a good thing because you think a little before making a decision if you really want/need it. I swallow gum quite often too and am worried that is why my belly is so big..........havent exploded yet though. I think some of the gum went into my butt thighs and upper arms too........thats what I'm saying from now on. Its just Gum!!
Competetive???? Kerry and Margarets child..........noooooo.
I enjoyed the post.

Hmm... I don't know if it's only when you do the dishes. What about when you run the microwave? Some people call that OCD. ha ha.

Okay, i know i'm a little crazy, but I think you and Susan take the cake!!! both OCD and good at scrapbooking... hummmmm, curious! the one thing I forgot to put was the light switch thing... I need them both to be down, and I will even go upstairs just to change it. Sean knows this drives me crazy, and does it wrong just to make me mad.
