I have been tagged by Pennsylvania Wild Woman to participate in 6 Quirks. She writes one of my favorite blogs. Here are the rules for this exercise in social intercourse:
1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Reveal 6 of your quirks on your blog.
4. Tag 6 fellow bloggers.
5. Leave them a comment to let them know.
Here are my 6 Quirks:
1. As it happens, one of my quirks is that I have an independent streak and I have a history of not always playing well with others. So, I am just semi-participating in this exercise. I'll tell 6 Quirks about myself, but I am not tagging 6 other blogs (I am curious about a couple though). I don't mean to be snarky about it; that's just the way I am.
2. I love the taste of raw meat. However, I no longer sample raw meat before I cook it because of the danger of contamination from bacteria and parasites. On rare occasions, I will order sashimi in a Japanese restaurant.
3. I am obsessive about saving anything that might be useful "later." Especially food. When we cleaned out the freezer, we found two half-pint jars filled with mysterious brown slush that turned out to be frozen coffee. Richard uncovered a jar of frozen "juice" from canned tuna, salmon, and mackerel that I made him save for making fish chowder (which I did make, and it was delicious).
4. Sometimes when I am doing repetitive things, I count the motions; for example, how many cuts it takes to slice a potato, how many times I slide the carrot across the blade of the mandoline. How many steps I take to go from room to room, how many seconds it takes me to vacuum the living room.
5. I like to collect weird stuff. I have a skull collection. Richard made me throw most of them away, but I still have a few small ones. I have a collection of mummified animals. I have jars filled with pickled reptiles and embryos.
6. I am obsessive about being places on time.
I am tagging Just Me, Miss Paula in Stitches, and Caprice of Electic. I am curious to know how quirky these women are, but if they want to participate, that's up to them.
