Some of My Quirks

I’ve been writing about heavier stuff lately, like food reactions and genetic mutations and poisons. Gonna break up that streak today for some Friday FUN!!!

So this is a follow-up to my post, The Beauty of “Weird.

Here are some weird and/or random facts about me.

  1. I don’t like hair…when it’s not attached to peoplegiphy-downsized (1).gif
  2. When I think of or hear someone talk about sour cream, my teeth get the feeling that you get when someone scrapes their fingernails on a chalkboard. You know that sound when the last of the sour cream is scraped out of the plastic container with a spoon? (Agh, just watching this GIF is incredibly painful! MY TEETH HURT!) giphy-downsized (2).gif
  3. For the life of me, I still can’t figure out what color my eyes are. They seem to be a mix of blue, green, gray, and caramel brown? Like blue-gray-hazel? They also change color, but I haven’t discovered a pattern for the color changes yet (except that they turn a light blue/green when I’m crying).                                                                2017-09-17-15-38-19-084                2017-09-17-23-22-10-e1507946391859.jpg    2017-09-17-14-53-41-717  2017-09-18 06.39.14  2017-09-17-23-29-14-e1507946297613.jpg  2017-09-18-06-55-52.jpg  2017-09-17 23.29.27  (Granted, these were probably taken or modified with various lighting and shading.) (Are you getting freaked out by all the eyes??? 😜)
  4. I communicate best in writing.

  5. I hate labels. But that doesn’t stop me from obsessing over them and learning everything I can about them (and…catching myself applying them…😔).
  6. My perspective on attractiveness (well, maybe 50-55% of my perspective): Knowledge is sexy. Intelligence is sexier. Wisdom is sexiest.

  7. The first thing I typically notice about you is your personality.
  8. When I scrape the wax out of my ears, I bring my fingers to my nose and smell it. (I avoid exhibiting this “entertainment” in public, though.)                                                  
  9. I have never been fashion-forward. In fact, I’ve been fashion-awkward much of my life. At best, I’ve managed to put together a few “classic” or color-coordinated outfits. But I can appreciate fashion in others.

  10. When I bake, I frequently don’t measure anything. And I throw random ingredients together. (Okay, there is a method to my madness…usually.)
  11. I at least twice contemplated enlisting in various branches of the military, but do not regret opting against that. (I’m grateful to all who have chosen to serve, though.)

  12. I LOVE bunny rabbits. My family likes to shoot them when they’re present “in excess” on the property, and that just crushes my soul.😢

  13. I am a germophobe. I see and feel germs.

  14. I talk to my smartphone. (You know, to tell the NSA “Hello there! I KNOW YOU’RE WATCHING ME!!”)

  15. I don’t really know what my own face looks like, unless I’m facing the mirror or viewing a picture of myself. Otherwise, I find my image difficult to recall. I can often visualize the details of others’ faces though. giphy-downsized (3).gif
  16. I’m a Twenty One Pilots fan. (Because, who isn’t?) If you’re not, I shall consider granting you forgiveness. 😜
  17. I notice mispeled words poor punctuation, bad grammar.
  18. When I hug or massage you, I feel like a USB drive that’s downloading all your information. I can feel your mood, your personality, and sometimes where your body is hurting. It’s overwhelming. (I still generally love hugs and enjoy giving massages though.)                                                             giphy-downsized (4).gif
  19. When I ask, “How are you?”, I am genuinely, curiously asking a question. I’m prepared to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly, if you need to share it.             giphy-downsized (6).gif


So…yeah. That’s a small glimpse into my freakarious mind.



Thanks for reading about my quirks ‘n’ other crap! 🙂

Till next time, my lovelies.

  1. A Chicken

    19 – it’s a modern tragedy that the default response to unsolicited kindness and concern is suspicion and defensiveness.

    Also consider it PDA when I offer my ear wax for you to smell in the middle of a nice restaurant.

    1. Hey A Chicken! You are so right – sadly, kindness often tends to elicit fear and suspicion. Our knee-jerk response to care and concern is often to ask ourselves “What do they want?” or to think “There must be an ulterior motive.”

      “Also consider it PDA when I offer my ear wax for you to smell in the middle of a nice restaurant.” 😄 ❤
