My Top 10 Quirks, or at least the first 10 I could think of...

1. I type with my toes. Ever since I took the job as a transcriptionist, if I am not typing with my hands, I am typing with my toes. I do this while in conversations, in church, watching TV, etc. My toes are in constant motion, and this sometimes irritates my husband.

2. I cannot stand still. If I am standing, I am swaying back and forth. This started when I was pregnant, I call it "rocking."

3. I sometimes get completely ready for the day, hair and makeup, before I get dressed. (Please don't picture this.) I don't like getting makeup or hair on my clothes or undergarments.

4. I will rarely, if ever, leave the house to run an errand without having showered, done my hair and makeup. I HATE being dirty. Hate it. I wash my hair every single day. I will never be one of those people who think their hair turns out better on day 2.

5. I peruse all printed material for errors. Punctuation, grammar, and spelling being the top three offenders. (I do not do this with my blog.) The place I feel the most guilty for doing this in is church. I do this with the newsletter, the bulletin, and posters advertising activities.

6. I often talk about my finances with people when I shouldn't.

7. Repetitive noises make me go insane. I used to do this when I was younger and couldn't understand what was bothering my mother so much. Now I know.

8. I won't ever go to the restaurant "El Pollo Loco" because I feel the name in and of itself makes me want to run another direction. Kind of like when a chicken has its head cut off! I have never patronized the place and never will.

9. I can pick my nose or toes in front of Harold, but if he does it, it grosses me out.

10. If I am at home, I check facebook a bazillion times a day to see if my sister Amy has played a word in our Scrabble game. If anyone out there wants to play, let me know!

Funny. We all have our quirks, don't we? Though number 1 kind of freaks me out a little bit. How is that even possible? I don't know if would be brave enough to share my quirks, but then again, I think everybody already knows them.......

I think my quirks might be the weirdest of all, but I think I made them sound worse than they really are. I do love knowing that we all have our differences, yet it's fun to see family similarities too. You type I tap, not much difference there.

Anyway thanks for indulging me, I hope we get a few more of these posts, they are very enlightening.

Thanks for the nice comment on my blog.

I love your list. I'm with you on #4. I hate the not showered/hair not washed feeling.

WOW! It's funny that so many of your "quirks" are things I do myself. ESPECIALLY number 2 (which also started when I was prego) and number 10!! :) I love my scrabble sister!! :)
