Tagged with a meme...

n. pl. id·i·o·syn·cra·sies
A structural or behavioral characteristic peculiar to an individual or group.

Write down five of your own idiosyncrasies. Then, if you wish, tag five people from your live gerbil or friendslist to do the same."

This came from Terby. You can go read her answers while I think about mine. (Only 5?)

Back so soon?
1. As Terby said, I am also prone to talking to myself. It's kind of a low mutter usually, but people around me can hear it.

2. I like the dishwasher to be loaded correctly. That is, MY WAY. I rearrange everything when my husband loads it.

3. I have always had a very poor sense of smell. I never notice most bad smells that people around me notice. But perfume makes me gag.

4. It's very hard for me to a leave a good find in a thrift shop, even if I don't really need it myself.

5. I'm a surprisingly slow reader.

Hmm... I'll pass this on to Jon in Colorado, Fathom, Ceci, Ana, and Monkee

Remember Monkee, only 5!

I tried this meme and couldn't come up with even two. I'm not acting strange I'm acting perfectly normal there's nothing strange about me.

But I'm the same way about the dishwasher - and it's particularly bad when the other person (invariably male) sets it on "heavy wash" or even "pots and pans" rather than do something so outrageous as scrub the big globs of dried-on food off the dishes before running them through the dishwasher. Um, you're scrubbing all the writing off my favourite cup because of your laziness. As often as possible I hand-wash my favourite dishes, but they still get swept up with the other dishes too often and the writing has almost totally faded... *sniffles*

It must be a woman thing, because I too, have to grit my teeth every time I open the dish washer when Hubby has loaded it. (Then I wait until he's out of the room and rearrange it.

I used to rearrange the dishwasher too, until I saw a Bill Engvall bit where his wife complained to him and their kids, "Am I the ONLY person in this house who knows how to load the dishwasher?" His reply (sorry if it isn't as funny - I never remember jokes correctly) was, "Well, apparently you ARE, since you always go back and rearrange everything WE put in it!" I have to see if Blockbuster has this DVD, because that bit was hilarious, and he's pretty funny too.
