Tagged: 6 Non-Important Quirks

My new friend from Still Passing Open Windows tagged me to share "Six Non-Important Quirks" about myself. After last week's imperfect-day post, it is high time for a light-hearted antidote.

Below are the rules for the meme:
1) Link to the person who tagged you.
2) Post the rules.
3) Share six non-important things / habits / quirks about yourself.
4) Tag at least three people.
5) Be sure the people you tagged KNOW you tagged them by commenting what you did.

Six Non-Important Quirks About Me

#1. The undergarments I wear on a given day must match in color. No beige bra / black panties combo. All black or all beige.

#2. I pre-wash the dishes and silverware in soapy water before putting them in the dishwasher.

#3. More dishwasher anal-ness: I load it a certain way and have been known to re-arrange dishes if they don't pass organizational muster. Insane, I know.

#4. I cannot stand litter and pick up pieces of trash in my neighborhood as I walk Gus.

#5. I own more pairs of trail running shoes than street shoes.

#6. I always buy a package of Swedish Fish when I shop at IKEA. I know they sell them at Target and other stores, but - for some reason - they don't taste the same to me.

I realized after reading the first four quirks that I sound a lot like Bree from "Desperate Housewives." Oh well. It is what it is.

Now I tag:

Precious Little (hopefully this will provide momentary respite during your 2WW)
Waiting Amy (to see how well she is going to fit in with life in L.A. - ha!)
Weebles Wobblog (because I am sure they will be entertaining to read)

Now I am off to work on my St. Patrick's Day limerick. Pity I can't use "Nantucket" in it.

I love Bree. So mushy on the inside.

Thanks for the tag, MP. I opened my own quirk cabinet for the world to see recently at

Is there something quirky about your #3? haha.

I can't WAIT to see your limerick!

I totally adore a woman with the same taste in shoes.

Pre-wash the dishes? Why? I am speechless!!
I'm thinking of my list right now.
Hope you are both well xx
