In true blog world fashion I have been tagged by Carola over at My Living Room. Here’s the deal (rules):

1. Link back to the person who tagged you
2. Mention the rules on your blog
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking to them
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged bloggers blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged

Here are my 6 unspectacular quirks…(again really I typed them the first time) 

1.  All of the hangers in my closet have to be white and facing the same direction!

2.  I CANNOT have less than 3 cans of kidney beans in my pantry at any time.

3.  I ALWAYS wear socks to bed no matter how hot it may be – I don’t always wake up with socks on.

4.  I will only paint my toenails 3 colors, red, clear or french.

5.  This one started in my waitressing/bartending days – When shopping for tennis shoes I will try on every pair of shoes in the store.  I put a different one on each foot and then move the one that feels better to the right foot and continue until I have exhausted all options.  Then I put on both shoes and walk around.  This is the pair I purchase regardless of brand, price, color or remarks from salespeople.  My feet usually choose ASICS or New Balance. 

6.  The only socks I will wear to complete the above mentioned task are white, ankle length by Gold Toe.


I tag anyone who wants to play AND the following people:


1) Laura at My 3 Ring Circus of a Life
2) Heather at Knits and Things
3) Jen at home in Cleaveland – get a blog woman!
4) Christine at Heidelblog

Seven Strange Things About Me

Posted in Journal tagged , at 5:49 pm by Jenn

1.  I thought Adam Sandler was HOT in his cartoon movie – 8 Crazy Nights (thanks for bringing that out of me NG).

2.  I once went 3 days without speaking.

3.  I only like Chicken Marsala if it is served with wild rice or oven roasted potatoes and green beans and prepared by Forrest Thomasson.  I can tell the difference!

4.  I did not cry until my husband came back from Iraq. ( I think that’s a true statement, although now that I’ve typed it, I’m thinking that’s a long time to go without a cry).

5.  I once won 3rd place in a bikini contest with only the top of the bikini.

6.  I pick my fingers.

7.  There are several bars in Maryland that refuse to serve me any drink containing Tequila.

As challenged by Nadine.  Heather, I tag you!

Tag, You’re It!
