So, some of the gals whose blogs I follow have been playing this game of tag which carries a theme. The idea is if you are "tagged," you have to post an entry on that theme. Now, I know this is a travel blog, but it is MY blog, so I guess I can deviate once in a while. Erin tagged me on the subject of quirkiness and now I have to write about 7 of my quirks. It is gonna be SO hard to come up with SEVEN! :) (yeah, right.) Thanks, Erin! Here goes . . .

  1. Snorting - yes, I snort when I laugh. Everyone knows it and has come to expect it; might I say they even enjoy it? And if you really get me going, then I can't breathe and I begin to "rev" as my son-in-law calls it.
  2. I have prehensile toes. Not sure if that's how it's spelled, but it's a talent (YES, IT IS!) where I can pick things up with my toes. I can also spread my toes very far apart.
  3. I don't wear make-up ever, but I do like my nails polished. Boy, do I like having manicures and pedicures! (gotta keep those toes pretty!)
  4. Speaking of nails, when one of my fingernails breaks, I have to cut down the other 9 so that they are all even. Can't stand having one or two short and the rest long. Ugh.
  5. My money has to face the same way in my wallet, no upside down or backward bills.
  6. I usually eat one thing at a time on my plate. Sometimes I mix it up, but I like to eat one thing all gone then start on the next, turning my plate as I go.
  7. I like to organize . . . anything - you, my house, my office (when I had one), my boss (just ask Tim J or Mark!). I find it very soothing for my surroundings to be in order.
Okay, there you have it. More info than many of you wish to know, but I had to keep the game going. Erin and Amy, I hope you're happy!!! :)

Until the next time . . .


  1. Interesting quirks! some I knew, others I did not!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I am very happy!!

    I do the same thing with the money in my wallet! I never even thought of that! I definitely miss the snort! :)

  3. I didn't know the toe thing had a name!!! That's fantastic! I can add a new quirk to my list too.

    My d-team girls used to tell me to stop making my feet "hold hands".

    You forgot one.... Reagan woke up this morning and said "Nana sounds like an elephant when she blows her nose!" HAHAH! I'm not joking, she really did say that this morning lying in bed. :)

  5. These quick's must run in the family.

  7. Um, I could have just copied your list and made it my own. NICE!

    And I miss your snort. It's great :)
