You’re an odd duck

Posted by Nanc

Who can you blame for these meme things? The initial blogger that started it (have you ever back tracked and found the owner)? The “friend” that tagged you on it? What about the bloggers that propagate this, including yourselves?

Well, screw the blame and just have some fun with it! Read more to find out a few items that make me a bit kooky.


***Ground Rules: The first player of this “game” starts with the topic “5 weird habits of yours” and people who get tagged need to write a blog entry about their 5 quirky habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 5 people to be tagged and list their names.***

Funny thing? I had trouble getting started, then a rush of thoughts came to mind, but they were all food-related. So it was difficult mixing it up some. But here goes:

  1. Calendars – I won’t peek ahead in a calendar to look at the pictures. I will allow myself to glance at the images on the back which show all the months, but I won’t look too closely. (Just to get a “feel” if I’ll like it or not.) I used to sneak a peek at my birth month, but now I like to save the calendar flip moment for all the months. I’m crazy like that.
  2. Milk – I LURVE milk. I can easily drink 3 tall glasses at one meal. But… it must be ice cold. Especially that first glass. So a few minutes before dinner is ready, I’ll put two glasses of milk in the freezer for me and Matty. When I’m ready for it there’s a wonderfully cold bite to it that is totally refreshing. Wanna know how to totally freak me out? (No? Well stop reading.) Leave the milk sitting out during a meal. {{shudder}}
  3. Peanut Butter – The first “cut” into a jar of peanut butter must be fun and/or decorative. This is a fact. When you open a new jar of peanut butter (creamy, I don’t do the crunchy kind so I don’t know what rules you people live by) and you’re faced with that perfect canvas, you can’t just go in willy-nilly. Draw a smiley face, a heart, or a artful design. Admire it, then dig in! Also, creamy peanut butter is smooth so there is no good reason that one would need to hack at it and leave it’s surface torn and ragged. No, it doesn’t need to be flat, just use even strokes.
  4. Kraft Mac N’ Cheese – Please note the very specific brand and type. I’m not so much a fan of any other mac n’ cheese, not even homemade. But the Kraft kind in the blue box with regular macaroni shapes and powdered orange “cheez” is perfection. And for me, it must be eaten from a bowl. Whether it is a side dish or the sum total of a meal, I eat it from a bowl.
  5. Spoons – Ah, spoons. What funny little instruments. I don’t use soup spoons for my soup. Or any other direct-to-mouth food item. I will use them as serving spoons or to dish out salsas, etc. But I think they’re way too big to be shoving food into my mouth. Also, I eat all my deserts with a (tea)spoon. No matter if they’re cake, pie, or whatnot. If it requires a utensil, I will opt for the mighty spoon.

* Well it seems that my obsession with food and being hungry led me to forget probably my biggest “quirk.” And that is… DO NOT TALK TO ME IN THE BATHROOM! Ever. And if you do talk to me, don’t expect a response. I’m not a shy pee-er by any means and you won’t stop any of my ‘functions’ except for speech. I don’t even like talking while washing my hands in the basin. Let’s take it outside, m’kay? Stalls or a single, it matters not. Leave me to my pee-ce (ha!).

Okay, well I think that gives you more than enough insight to my rattled brain. At least for now. How about if the following loverly ladies give you more to ponder (and shake your collective heads at):

    *lmao* Then you wouldn’t get along well with my mother. She likes to talk on the phone while she’s on the pot. If I’m talking to her and I hear any telltale sounds, especially flushing, she knows I’ll hang up immediately.

  2. Rachel Says:

    yea-does that count on the phone? what if the other person is on the phone? I am always using the bathroom on the phone…I’m a multitasker at heart. Should I knock it off?

    Delurking in return and admitting I have a penchant for sporks, m’self. Taco Bell always has them.
