8 people I tag:
1. Cameron
3. Beth
4. Tammy

The rules are list six quirks about yourself, and then leave a note for 6 friends on their blog to tag them! My six people are: Sam, Bethany, Tammy, Shelye, Beth and Jen.

These are quirks – so of course they’ll make me seem a bit weird.
1. I don’t like the cord that is around the hood of sweatshirts, so I pull them out of every sweatshirt I get.
2. I don’t like people to breathe on me – it makes me feel like I can’t breathe “good” air.
3. My rugs and furniture HAVE to be parallel to the walls.
4. When I find bugs in the house, first they scare me, and then they make me mad. Then they die.
5. When I’m reading a book, I tune out the world so spectacularly that I can’t hear Mike when he talks to me. (Or anyone, for that matter.)
6. When I sing songs to myself, I can’t help but wiggle my hips. Mike noticed the other day and laughed, so I tried to sing without “dancing” and I couldn’t!


  1. Oh no...DOUBLE TAGGED! WOW. GOOD JOB! I really enjoyed reading all these things about you.

    If you are going to be singing - you better be DANCING. Hello...hasn't anyone ever seen West Side Story? And yes - I know you both have...because we watched it at your house! Great post.

  2. Do I really have to do this? I have a hard time being witty and I'm really a "closed" person so I can't be truthful... it's much too revealing and I hate sharing personal stuff.

    By the way, my wife does the whole "bad air" thing, as well. That's why we can't kiss when we're having sex.
