quirks r fun

kathyescobar doesn't really go anywhere else, just because i thought it was funny 4 Comments

okay so maybe i really am in blog-land now,  i always used to see these things when i was reading other people’s blogs:  people would get tagged by someone else to respond to some specific questions and then tag someone else.  i always felt left out (typical me, i hate to not be in on the party).  anyway, today i got tagged by glenn and erin to participate (it made me smile and was a good diversion to the crazy & sad week i’ve had (more on that later). 

here are the rules:·        

  • link to the person who tagged you
  • post the rules on your blog·        
  • share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself·        
  • tag six people and at the end of your post, link to their blogs.·
  • let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. 

so, here goes. ask the people in my community who see  my quirkiness all the time. their list would be longer than six!  but here are the ones off the top of my head:

  1. i absolutely positively cannot stand people slurping or dipping or gulping anywhere next to me.  jose is a cookie, donut, cake milk dipper and it drives me crazy.  when he slurps and gulps sometimes, honestly, it is worse than nails on a  chalkboard.  (really trite super over-used churchy words have the same effect)
  2. when i was in high school i worked at chuck e. cheese’s for a year or so and used to dress up in the costume and go out and greet the kids.  i was mr. munch, too (the big purple guy).   those costumes are hot and stifling.  my kids think that is the funniest thing.
  3. i am an absolutely terrible domestic person. i don’t cook or clean, really. every year it seems i get a little worse.   i once went 6 months without vacuuming my house (it actually didn’t look as bad as it sounds but still…).  i am famous among my friends for buying amazingly good food at costco but never cooking.  a few months ago i baked an apple pie for fun and everyone at our house of refuge stood in front of the oven, in awe.
  4. i hate wearing socks & long pants and closed toed shoes & i whine and complain about the cold weather all the time(i am a california girl who got stuck in colorado).  a few days ago it is 40 degrees here but i wore my capris.  i do not own a pair of snowboots.
  5. i know so much good people magazine-type information about movie stars and hollywood stuff that sometimes i have to hide my “people magazine knowledge” when i am playing certain trivia games because i’m actually embarrassed that i know all the answers.
  6. i have given birth to 5 children with no drugs. (ps: it’s not like i said i would never get any, it just never quite worked out in the moment!)

 okay so now i am going to tag…

jenny (to start off the year with some fun…)

amy (because you always have quirky quizzes on your site)

john (you probably get these all the time but you came to mind because i read your wallpost about juno!)

phyllis (a little diversion might be nice for you too, it was a good mind-time-waster for me, now i need to go to bed)

have fun!
