A MEME! I have never done a MeMe before but this one was sent to me by Our Yellow House and I felt like playing. Plus my FIL called to say it's about time the zoom shot of him screaming makes it off the "front page"! Sorry Papa! So here it goes...
Here's how to play:
1) Link to the person who tagged you
2) Mention the rules
3) Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself
4) Tag six other bloggers by linking to them (I'm going to skip this one and let you consider yourself tagged if you feel like sharing your quirks)
5) Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they’ve been tagged (See above)
One: I have a real pen fetish. DO NOT let me into Staples alone. There are more pens in my house than in their pen isle already. I prefer bold ball points and felt tips. Blue first then black and sometimes color. I fantasize about a job that requires me to write all day. Friends with fund raisers know who to call when they need envelopes addressed. Seriously.
Two: I have a nightly beauty ritual that drives my husband insane because he says it takes so long. I brush my teeth for a long time, floss, remove my makeup/concealer, wash my face, pat on some witch hazel, moisturize, then put on lip balm. I consider this personal hygiene he calls it "excessive". I'm just happy after 7 years of marriage he still wants me to come to bed faster.
Three: I can not finish food items. Meaning I will be the *#%hole who leads you to believe there is in fact a whole box of cookies/bag of potato chips/enough half and half for your morning coffee in the respective container only to discover there is just-a-smidgen. Not nearly enough for a portion of anything to be satisfying. I blame this on my heritage since I am a Starving Armenian.
Four: I re-write things written in someone else's handwriting. So, let's say you defile my to-do list by adding something to it on your own initiative rather than dictating it to me to write my self I am compelled by forces beyond my control to re-write that list. This relates back to Quirky Fact #1.
Five: I must eat with a knife in my left hand. You know, to push food onto the fork, properly. I feel barbaric otherwise. (This does not apply if I am eating with chopsticks.) Jorn sets the table each night and he knows mama always needs a knife even if there is no cutting involved in the meal!
Six: I have a real knack for remembering lyrics to songs quickly but for some reason I tend to sing the same verse over and over again without even realizing it until "someone" (**cough** Greg) brings it to my attention in a rather frustrated tone. This same "someone" does not appreciate it, however, when I sing Billy Joel's Scenes From an Italian Restaurant in it's entirety. Go Figure.
So there you have it folks! Consider yourself tagged if you feel like sharing your quirks but don't forget to comment and let me know you're doing it so I can read yours!
