Tag I am it!!!

My new bloggy friend Vicki, has tagged me on this little challenge to list six unspectacular quirks of mine. So here they go…..

1. My food cannot touch on my plate. I hate it especially if it has a sauce on it and it runs into something else. I actually get a napkin and wipe it away from my other food or I get a new plate just for the saucy item. Buffets are hard for me because I need lots of plates!

2. I hate showering in someone else’s shower. It has to be my shower or forget it. Now of course I have done it but I have to talk myself into it. I am uncomfortable going on trips with friends because I don’t want them to think I don’t shower, but it is a phobia I have.

3. Another phobia I have is calling people I don’t know. I usually have my WH call to make dr. appointments etc, but I have been known to ask my mom or a close friend to do it for me. Really bad for my TS business.

4. I clean my ears a lot with Q-tips (gasp). I know, you are not supposed to do it, but I literally can’t stop, I do t at least 2-3 times daily. Weird.

5. This isn’t a bad quirk, but I am 99.9% always on time. I actually can’t stand it sometimes. If we go to a party usually everyone is late, not me I am on time or early. I hate when I am the first person, but I usually am. Now there are times I am late but usually it is because of something out of my control, and then I feel horrible about being late!

6. I have a hard time saying no. I have always been this way. I don’t like to let people down. I go out of my way for others. This is not always bad either, but I have had people take advantage of my inability to say no. If I do say no it is really because I can’t do it.

I now have to tag six people. I will be tagging Debbie, new friends Maricris, & Breanne. I can’t tag 6 people (cause I don’t know that many that haven’t done this already) so if you would like to do this challenge leave a comment so I can link you up somehow.

Here are the rules:
1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

Hi there, I'm Vicki's cousin and a blogger too. I can identify with number 2 and number 5. I dislike other people's showers. Hotel's if it is pristine doesn't bother me as much. I also arrive early or on time even to parties, I can't help but do that. I try to leave home a little later, but since I am already ready much earlier than need be I just have to get a head start and get where I am going.

I am picturing you at a buffet like one of those circus act people spinning plates of food from every part of their body so none of the sauces touch!

My husband once went camping with some guys, one of whom looked at him curiously the next morning when Mr.4444 was cleaning his ears with a Q-tip. He asked, "What's that?" Mr.4444 told him and offered him one. Four q-tips later, the guy was still pulling "peanut butter" from his ears! EWWWW. He also said, "Wow! I can HEAR now!" Scary.

Thanks for participating Jamey! These are great. I wish I had the on-time quirk. I am always late for everything! Click on the other names that I tagged to see what they came up with. :)

Hi Jamey, I was tagged by Vicki to and you commented on my blog. I feel like we are very similar. I don't like my food to touch, but I have worked on that some over the years, so I am not as anal as I used to be. Q-tips are my friend. I need to be at least 20 minutes early to work and I definitely am inline with the phone call thing!!!

Merrie said...

Yes, you're the one that always arrives at events just before me, so I'm rarely #1 anymore. Thank you! ;)

Hi - My tag is up. Thnaks It was fun.

I am addicted to Q-tips too --- I find myself doing the same way too much!!! :) So...I don't see it as weird at all -- put it does push the wax back in which isn't good :)
