6 Quirks

Linda tagged me for my first meme! How do you pronounce meme by the way? And does anyone else find it exhausting to post links? Then again you’re talking to someone who thought html was short for hotmail. Yes – grasshopper has far to go.

But I digress (as usual) - I love this because it has the word "quirk" in it. Quirk is my favorite state of mind.

So here we go ...

Link to the person that tagged you.
1. Post the rules on your blog.
2. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
3. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
4. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website
5. Let your tagger know when your entry is up

My 6 Quirks - and I really had to cut the list!

1 - I always make the sign of the cross when passing churches (any religion) or accidents or roadkill.
2 - The milk must go in before the coffee or I'm positive it tastes different.
3 - It secretly hurts my feeling when people leave the second "N" out of my name but I never correct them
4 - Soda must be in a glass (or can) and milk must be in a plastic cup or I can't drink them
5 - I've been doing laundry all my life and still can't fold sheets.
6 - My skin crawls if there are dishes in the sink - I have to wash them immediately

My random tags are:

I use to think the same think about HTML.

I had to go look the word meme up last night. The definition (in case anybody wants to know) is: "an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture." Since I had never heard the word until a few weeks ago, I can't help thinking that meme itself is something of a meem. Oh... and it's pronounced meeem.

Now I wish I had thought of that when I posted my list. I'm a compulsive googler.

Loved your list. You have neat quirks.

Odat said...

Very "quirky" Altho I can relate...
Allllrightttt...I'll do it! lol.
Give me a few days ok? Thanks for thinking of me!

Mahala said...

When I fold sheets, I always have the best intentions, yet they always end up in a wad. I wish I shared your compulsion for washing dishes.

Dianne said...

I'm so glad you're into it a-licious!

I'm a compulsive googler too raven ;)

take all the time you wish Odat - just have fun ;)

mahala - many of my best intentions end up in a wad!

Jay said...

When my sister went to England for the first time a few years ago she noticed that THEY put the milk in first, then the coffee or the tea. Ever since then she's decided that it must be done that way everywhere! LOL

Dianne said...

thanks Jay - I can then consider myself continental, sophisticated even as opposed to just nuts and annoying ;)

Smalltown RN said...

Oh Dianne you and I must be of the same name....Mary Anne....people often call me Mary...drives me crazy...or they forget the "e" at the end of Anne....and the dishes...yes I have to have them hubby thinks I am fanatic about laundry....the fitted sheets I haven't really mastered folding those yet...they are a challenge....especially when they are king size....

hope you had a great weekend.....cheers

R.E.H. said...

Why do you want the milk in a plastic cup? It tastes SO much better out of a glass ;)

Milk in coffee, first of last? Not at all thank you, I drink my coffee black!

Interesting quirks, and as you can probably guess - I have a few quirks myself ;)

Akelamalu said...

You sound normal to me :)

♥♥♥ A- Licious ♥♥♥ said...

oh me too - compulsive googler etc... LOL

and yes, my mom too said my face gave it all away BEFORE i said a thing...LOL food touching - eeeek!


thanks for thinking of me! :O)

Dianne said...

smalltown rn: I was named after a hurricane (poetic?) and then my Mom, Anne wanted her name in mine so hence the Dianne. funny thing is my Mom dropped the "e" on her name since people never used it.

reh: I hate the milk film on a glass, it makes me queasy. I'd love to hear some of your quirks ;)

akelamalu: see now! that what I tell folks LOL

a-licious: thanks for playing along, you crack me up.

CG said...

Oh dear, i have to disagree with jay's sister; English people are divided into 2 groups; those who put the milk in first and those who put it in second. it's a huge cultural divide/class thing!
Loved your list :)

♥♥♥ A- Licious ♥♥♥ said...

probably because i am pretty is catchy....LOL

Dianne said...

a cultural divide over milk!? aren't people funny cg!?
glad u liked my list, was hard to narrow it down to 6 LOL

it is catchy a-licious - in a good way ;)

SnoopMurph said...

Hi Diane...just kidding! I love your name with two N's-it looks prettier to me.

Wow, the sheet folding escapes me too. I get the crib and twin sheets fine, but I really like the queen sheets to fold up to the same size and it never works out that way....

I don't like drinking water out of glasses-there is some kind of funky smell in some of the glasses that I cannot stand.

Great list and I probably need to add a few more to mine now!

Dianne said...

I pretty much gave up on the sheet folding, like Mahala said - they're just a wad and I have accepted that LOL

ever since I posted snoopmurph I've been thinking of more!

bobbie said...

Tag - I'm it? Well, I'm not really into this kind of thing much, but let me think about it. I do love your list. I love to read other people's lists. Just never tried to compile one of my own.
I'll let you know in a few days - or maybe sooner - who know?
Thanks for thinking of me anyway. It's nice to be thought of!

(All I know about "meme" isn't even "meme" with an "e" on the end. Mem is the 13th letter of the Hebrew alphabet.)

Dianne said...

Don't worry about it Bobbie ;)

Just cause you're tagged doesn't mean you have to be it LOL

We can make our rules as we go along.

mrsmogul said...

I know some people who do the milk first in the mug. I like to see the caffeinne get a mily bath first! About the Olsen Twins, no they just lived down the street from the apt!

Dianne said...

I could have sworn they said she owned the apartment but they are often wrong.

I like to see the milk get a coffee bath LOL

Theresa said...

Hi DianNe :)

If I ever leave the second n out it is not to hurt you , but because I am a terriable speller.

Love your meme (in my head I pronounce it mame with a long a-not sure why-it is funny how we just make up things we don't know- love your html story:) too funny.

I can see the milk thing, it is all in the blending.

My husband and I have to use straw while drinking coke- and no plastic cups for us.

Fun meme- i must say you are a tad quirky :)

Dianne said...

theresa: "a tad quirky"!? bless you! I often think I'm just plain mad as a hatter but to tell the truth I like it.

I have to drink everything with a straw but that's not really a quirk - it's endless dental work. I will have such a beautiful smile at my funeral LOL
