Tagged! Six Unspectacular Quirks About Me

MENTAL STATUS: "Disappointed". Made sushi last night and the rice didn't taste quite right. Dang, I was really in the mood for it, too.

Thanks to my writer friend, Nadia Lee, I've been tagged to list "six unspectacular quirks about me".

Here are the rules:
Link to the person who tagged you.
Post the rules on your blog.
List 6 unspectacular quirks you have.
Tag 6 bloggers by linking them.
Leave a comment on each person’s blog to let them know they’ve been tagged.

Here are my quirks:

1) I'm afraid I'm a political news junkie. Yes! I know, I don't look the type. But I love all the debates and watch about 3 to 4 hours a day Mon thru Friday--in addition to anxiously awaiting any new articles by my all-time favorite columnist Charles Krauthammer. (Gee, no wonder I'm not getting much writing done.)

2) I going through a phase right now where I HATE having my fingernails painted--or having my fingernails long. Pedicures are a MUST, though.

3) I've been on a new kick of making smoothies for breakfast or sometimes lunch. My favorite right now is 2 handfuls of raw baby organic spinach, one mango, and a 1/4 c orange juice in a blender. It's soooo good!

4) I can't write if my house is a mess. It doesn't have to be "clean", but it can't be a mess.

5) I would rather clean the toilet than iron clothes. (Sorry. It's a fact.)

6) I graduated with a Suma Cumlaude in procrastination. Yes, it's true. I hate that about myself but I really can't help it.

Quirky, wouldn't you say?

And here are the "lucky" ones who've been tagged: Lainey Bancroft , Kristen Painter , Bella McFarland , Valerie Everhart , T. Sue Versteeg, Marianne Arkins.

Thanks so much for not tagging me. Yes, definitely quirky. I agree about the toilet thing. Ironing is one of the suckiest jobs on the planet.

Kristen Painter said...

You rotten, rotten creature! I will answer this tomorrow as I have already posted today.

Diane Craver said...

LOL I was relieved that you didn't tag me! I'm a political news junkie too. I'd probably have my wip finished by now if I gave up watching the news.

I'm so in agreeance about the toilet thing. Hubby and I have an understanding: He irons, I'll do everything else. He even irons my clothes on Sunday morning! He's MUCH better at it than I am! We've said it before, but we're so much alike!

Spinach, mango and orange juice? Where's the Mr. Yuck face when you need it? =)

T'anks for the tag, this should be easy, I'm pretty quirky and unspectacular.

Bella said...

I should probably kill you for tagging but I'll let it pass...this time. I must try your smnoothie recipe.

spinach in a smoothie... I'm not sure if I should trust you with that. I admit to using wheat grass, though, so perhaps it isn't THAT different.

And, I refuse to iron. Period. If a clothing item doesn't get unwrinkled by tossing it into the dryer, then I toss it into a bag for Goodwill.

I have a guest blogger tomorrow, but will do my utmost to blog this on Thursday!

Gah...that smoothie sounds damn good right about now! @_@

Valerie Everhart said...

You are a very bad girl to have tagged me, lol!

My book, the Victory of Lugh just came out and I am all over the place doing interviews and chatting, and now you want me to blog!!!

Actually, I've started writing under another name in another genre'...shsssh, I haven't told anyone but Silke, so far, lol.

Glad to see you're doing great! I need to pop in and say hi to DD!

Okay, the post is written and will go live tomorrow very, very early in the a.m.
