Quirky


Rachel tagged me! (Love you sis.) The topic is "Quirks." I am to tell 6 quirks about me, so here we go...

1.  I have OCD when it comes to m&m's. I always eat them the same way- separated by color, put in rainbow order, then I eat them so that I have the same number of each color. When I only have one of each color left, I make sure that I eat the m&m's that will leave me with my favorite color combinations... Wow, that didn't seem so weird until I typed it out.  
2. I hold onto balled up napkins for hours without realizing it. One day I saw my aunt Ruth do the same thing and I freaked out. I guess it's genetic. 
3. I'm addicted to cracking my pinky toes. Like a nervous tick. I didn't realize how much I was doing it until I broke my left pinky toe. I can do it over & over again. (that's what she said)
4. I CAN'T STAND the feeling of a wooden popsicle stick against my teeth! It's worse than nails on a chalkboard. Sometimes, I'll even throw away the end of my popsicle just to avoid it.
5. I'm deathly afraid of birds. I had a bad experience as a child that involved some angry geese. The quirky part is that I love birds if they're not real- in art, pictures, jewelry, and all over Wendy's room.
6. I love to go "online window shopping." I even go so far as to put whatever I want into my virtual shopping cart. If you logged on as me at almost any major online store (gap.com, potterybarn.com, amazon.com crateandbarrel.com, anthropolie.com, etsy.com, tinyprints.com, ikea.com, etc.) you would find a shopping cart with at least $200 worth of stuff at each site. Sometimes, if something I REALLY like goes on sale, I'll actually buy it.

I am comletely OCD about m&ms exactly like that! I don't think I do the rainbow order thing, but I always separate them and eat them so there are equal numbers of each color then eat the last ones so my favorite colors are left for last. So weird. I also have a deep and abiding fear of geese. Stupid things. I'm always fearful that I will accidently check out my "wish cart" of stuff online in reality. It is kind of dangerous for me to window shop online. It makes me want more stuff. Anyway, glad that we are crazy twins! BTW that pic of you with Wendy is so sweet.

Heather, I hate the TASTE of the popsicle stick! That gets me every time. How did I forget that one on my quirks! I might have to do an update. :)
