Is that me?

Okay, fine... I'll do this Corbo, but only because it's you.

The Rules: Mention rules on your blog -Tell about 6 quirks of yours -Tag 6 fellow bloggers to do the same.

#1 I have to eat candy after every meal. Sounds like just an excuse to eat candy right? No, after every meal - I get a craving for candy. Usually Chewy Spree or Skittles, but just about any candy will do. Lately it's been Twizzlers Cherry Nibs or Starburst.

#2 I talk loudly on the phone. I mean really really loudly as if I'm trying to talk to the person who really is across the country in person, like they can hear me. My husband usually reminds me to take it down a notch or 20 when he's home and when he's not home, I'm sure my neighbors love me. So - sorry if I've ever yelled in your ear when talking to you on the phone.

#3 I hate to backtrack or retrace my steps. I know it sounds silly, but I will plan out the most efficient way to get as much laundry as possible from the living room to the bedroom so I don't have to do it over and over again. Or, if I have to run several errands in one day, I will map out a list of what order I need to go to those places in so that I don't have to backtrack.

#4 I have a box full of unread books in my closet, yet I still go to the library every week and check out a new book or two. Why don't I just read the books I have? I don't know. Maybe because I like the idea of reading a book that isn't mine, or maybe it's that I can read those books anytime - but I will only have the library books to read as long as I'm going to the library.

#5 I have a place for every thing. I very, very rarely lose things because everything has a place. I have rubbermaids, baskets, boxes, and all kinds of containers for every possible thing. It is so frustrating for me to misplace something I know I have, so I make a place for everything. Just this afternoon - I organized all of my fingernail polishes and removers in a little box on my bathroom closet shelf. Now, anytime I'm looking for anything fingernail related - it's all right there.

#6 You tell me... What are some things I do that you'd consider a quirk? Don't worry, you won't hurt my feelings. Quirks can be fun and interesting. So... you tell me.

I am tagging: Kimberly H, Katie J, Camille S, PMB and whoever else wants to share their quirks!

ha ha ha--love it!!! I also have to eat candy or some sort of sugar after every meal. Also, Trav constantly reminds me to talk quieter on the phone and he also makes fun of me cuz I WILL NOT in ANY way backtrack when it comes to driving anywhere!!! Now- I think you are quirky in that you have all of your clothes color coded in the closet. Funny thing is that I do too!!! Wow-smart, intelligent minds think and act alike aye?! :)
