Quirky Tag

Feeling a bit under the weather, so my posts may be a bit sporadic at the beginning of the week.

Mrs. PvE was kind enough to enlist my aid and tagged me with a most unusual request. Here are the rules of the game:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules.
3. Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself.
4. Tag six other bloggers by linking to them.
5. Go to each person’s blog and leave them a comment so they know they’ve been tagged.

First things first.

1. I am phone phobic.

2. I change clothes at least twice a day; and I work at home.

3. This year is my 20th college reunion. I won’t attend, again.

4. I can’t get rid of books, no matter how uninterested in them I may be.

5. I don’t like the gym, but don’t mind exercise.

6. I love my iPod, but never listen to it.

I’ll get around to asking a few others for help in a bit. I’m off for a nap. Cleaning house whilst ill has taken it out of me for today.

  1. Even under the weather you look great! Not sure if you realize it, but you are an inspiration. I truly enjoy reading your posts.

  2. I never seem to get colds, a trait I ascribe to smoking 1-2 packs a day–the little buggers die of cancer (before I do!)…

    I too am phone phobic, and avoid it at any and all costs. In my case, I have a stutter, and talking on the phone aggravates it (and me). How do you arrange things to avoid the phone?

    I find that I only hoard certain books now–my “old friends” that I dip into repeatedly–rereading books also satisfies any “reunion” urges, allowing me to avoid my scholastic ones!

  3. Mrs. B, shot on Sunday! The back of my hair is far shorter than it was. Next, we’ll work on tapering the sides correctly; tricky as I have a very small bean and need to keep the proportions right or I look like one of the shrunken heads in “Beetlejuice” when I wear a suit. It’s a “no-product” day and that accounts for the floppiness. I’ve been buried in my closet trying to de-clutter. Off to catch a few rays now.

    Tucker, ain’t email the best? Now if I could only text… No, my problem is my inability to edit myself. In order to hide my unease, I blather.

    Thanks Fairfax, this too shall pass. But not quick enough for me.

  4. Love the messy “no product” hair! As for the phone….I, too, tend to rattle on. I always end up feeling that I’ve “auditioned” for something. Now that I think about it, I’m certain if one looked long enough they could find one or more of my messages on YouTube. Yikes….

  5. I hope you are recovering! But I must say, if I looked this good while sick, my husband would never believe me. I would be forced from my cozy bed for carpool duty and then to the office. So, I must don my sweats and Uggs to be properly convincing. And the book collections are pouring out of every corner here as well!

  6. I am glad that there is a photo on the site of you wearing jeans! Us mere mortals will feel better than we can wear them now 🙂

    hope you feel better

  7. Hope you were able to tuck in early with a hot toddy and that you were nursed back to health or at least had a good book to peruse and no bothersome phone-calls to produce phone phobia or any other quirks. Oh, I think I feel a quirk coming on. Thanks for rallying to quirkiness in spite of your malaise.

  8. I want that bookshelf. Absolutely, brilliant. I am building a library in our great room above our garage and was concerned as to how to carry the shelving over the door. I hope you don’t mind, but I believe I will steal that design. The shelving looks quite deep above your head. If I may ask, how deep is that unit?

  9. Hello all, still recovering… ugg. Of for more sun now that the laundry’s more manageable.

    Turling, have at it. The bookshelves were designed by the carpenter who was on the crew renovating the house. He understood exactly what I wanted and did it all with scrap lumber that was lying around. Stained, routed and put up himself. The tracks are the more expensive brass ones though. The shelves are just shy of 12″ deep.
