Fun Monday this week is hosted by one of my very favorite bloggers EVER, because I just think she's a fantastic person, and an amazing photographer, and I just love her. Oh, right...Fun Monday...this week, being hosted by Lisa, who has this to say:
"A quirk is defined as a peculiarity of action, behavior, or personality; mannerism. We are all unique individuals, having quirks that help make us who we are. I would like to know what your quirks are. Confess to one, confess to ten, you decide. Just come back Monday ready to spill the beans, the rest of the world may look at you like you are from Mars, but you‘re among friends here. We won’t laugh, in fact that eccentricity just may endear you to us more."
Well, I'm full of quirks, so I knew this would be an easy Fun Monday to participate in. But then I sat down to write this, and it seemed harder than I initially thought.
Okay, so here's one of my main quirks, something that is quite possibly more than just a quirk. It's my tendency to need to do things in order. What do I mean? Let me see if I can explain with a few examples. Cleaning my house, I always begin in my kitchen, then move through the rest of the rooms in my house, always in the same order, ending in my office (which might explain why my office is always a mess, by the time I reach it, I'm too tired and give up). When I log into my computer, I always check my various email addresses and other websites in the same order, every time. There are so many other things I do this way...I'm a bit OCD that way, I know. It's a quirk, right?
It kind of spills over into the way I watch television, or read books, or do any other number of things. I can't ever read a book that is part of a series out of order. I can't begin watching a television show in its second season, without first watching the first...I can't tell a story without filling those who don't know about the background. For me, things need to have a beginning, middle and end. It's a weird quirk that way, but it is something that makes up my personality in so many ways.
Other quirks? I should go visit some of your blogs and see what you put down, because I'm pretty sure I'll remember some of mine then...but I'm drawing a blank right now.
So, instead I direct you to Lisa's, to go see what everyone else is quirky about.
And, I know I've been slacking in my blogging duties lately, but I've got some great stuff coming up this week. Please come back to find out about bacon lollipops, the ABCs of me, me, me, and how Traveller and I partied like rockstars at Nascar.
