I was tagged, oh, a long time ago by Diva of I Am The Diva fame for this frisky little meme that lists seven quirky things about me.

Rules:

  • Link back to the person who tagged you. Check.
  • Write your seven quirky things. Soon to be checked
  • Terrorize 7 other people whose blogs you visit. Scary. Link to them in your meme post.
  • Tell them what you have done in their comments section.
  • Beg their forgiveness.

Seven Quirky Things About Me (as if you don’t have enough information what with my 100 things page and all):

  • I have slept in the beds of several people who have died in those very beds. No big.
  • One of the beds was in a very paranormally active house. I woke up in the middle of the night once with huge beetles infesting my hair. They were trapped inside the chiffon scarf I wore around my head to keep my hair rollers in place. Yes, I’m that old.
  • I cannot follow a recipe to the letter. There is something in me that makes me think that I can make it better, my own way. Therefore, recipes are considered guidelines or suggestions.
  • I have wicked negotiating skills. I sold cars when I was quite young, and learned a lot from that. One time, I sold a car I bought privately back to the company that made it for $200 less than I paid for it. I had driven it for two years. The company representative was in awe of my skills.
  • I once had an online romance. It ended before we met, and I was totally devastated. He was an amazingly talented healer, but so much younger than I.
  • The first food I remember eating was lobster scrambled with eggs. And fried dulse, and bread and molasses. Yes, I am that old.
  • The presents I love the best are the homemade ones. Those of you who wish to present me with a kickin camera, I will totally forgive you if you didn’t make it yourself.

Hmm. I doubt my quirks can come close to yours, but I’ll give it a go. Of course I may cheat and include it in a portion of my 100 Things About Me so I don’t have to do twice the work. ;) Give me a day or two and I’ll get right on it. I can’t wait to see everyone else’s responses as well.

ME! ME! It’s all about ME!!

I can’t think of anything.

Really, I’m not quirky at all. Will try to be quirky all weekend, to work on it. This will have the much-desired effect of confusing my husband for our anniversary. Heh heh.

nan’s last blog post..what to do?

Girl, that beetle thing is freaking me out.

witchypoo Says:

I kind of ignored the quirky part and just wrote seven things that I hadn’t already.
Candy: I was totally freaked out by the beetles visit as well. I stopped wearing rollers in my hair at night after that. Could. Not. get that scarf off fast enough.

Marie Says:

I do that with recipes too. They really are just guidelines.

Sarcastic Mom Says:

I’m the same way with recipes. I can’t just do it the way it says!

Love your quirks list. :-)

mommyknows Says:

I am the same with recipes! Problem is I often don’t remember exactly what I did, so if we love it, I can’t reprouce it.

The cool part of recipe making it up as you go, is that you get something different each time. And nobody takes your meals for granted.
