6 Unspectacular Quirks

Tagged, I'm it. Hellokittiemama at The Bon Bon Gazett has tagged me for the Six Unspectacular Quirks meme. Quirks? Me? Well ok, maybe a few (dozen).

Thems's the rules..
1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks you possess.
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.

Let's see -

1. I'm a naturally introverted person and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Public Speaking. Honestly, give me a room full of people and a microphone and I'll go on for hours. Just don't ask me to come up with witty banter or small talk at a cocktail party - total deer in the headlights!

2. I am told I am "soft spoken" or, according to Hubby, I mumble. I think it must be a sensory thing, because I can hear me just fine - I can hear what is being said in the next room just fine - I can hear what Hubby mumbles under his breath just fine (that one can be a little annoying for both of us). When I am being herd, I FEEL LIKE I'M YELLING - Can you hear me now?

3. 12 years of school, 5 years of college and 3 years of law school and I can't spell. Well, OK, I can spell but I'm prone to numerous and strange mistakes. And not just the letter reversal kind, I get letters into words that have no business being there. I tend to cut and paste 90 percent of my comments to your blogs into a word document and spell check them. Even that doesn't always work!

4. I've been cooking since I was 10. I'm good at it and I love my food cooked my way. But I don't like to make my own salads. There is nothing wrong with the way I make a salad. Everyone else likes my salads. But I only like salads made by other people.

5. I'm a secret dancer. Ballet in the kitchen while I do the dishes, Belly Dancing moves while I brush my teeth, Flamenco in the living room just for fun, but nobody will ever see me dance. On the dance floor, I'm just as awkward as I was as a teenager.

6. I'm drawn to stories of the paranormal. I don't know why - I've never had a paranormal experience, nothing paranormal runs in my family, it creeps out Hubby and Diva. But ever since I was a child, I've been fascinated.

OK, now your all thinking "just back away, back away slowly . . ."

Not so fast - it's time to pass the torch.

Oh - the salad thing.... I'm that way too, kinda. Except - I can cook up a storm but I cannot make a salad for the life of me. Or if I do, it just doesn't taste good to me. But I love other people salads!!!!!

Very cute! I'm a secret superstar too, except mine involves singing as if I should've been on stage..Not! I also scare the beegeezes out of myself looking at videos of polterguiests. I should have mine up tomorrow. Thanks for the tag.

PS I can't spell either.

"Belly dancer moves while brushing my teeth." That's funny - I think I'm going to have to try that. My problem is I like to dance, but most people wish I were more secret about it!

I've been told I'm very soft-spoken too, everyone is always telling me to speak up!

I love your aquarium! (Is that spelled right? I can't spell either.) Very nice quirks! I enjoyed reading about them.

Michelle said...

thanks for adding me to your tag! I'l try to get to this next week :)

Maddy said...

Aha! So you went to law school too. I apparently can't spell either but that's only because I'm in the wrong country! Mumblers of the world unite!

My typing/spelling/grammer is really bad. I do copy and paste but sometimes I can't be bothred. I get pulled up for ita lot on You Tube if I am fighting. One woman said that even though she called autism a disease she ment to say disorder, just like I mess up my grammer. I replyed "I use bad grammer and you call my son diseased I guess we all make mistakes..."grrr lol
