Six Things

I've been tagged by Carabee at Land of Bean for my first meme. Without further adieu, here we go!

First the rules:
1. Link the person who tagged you
2. Mention the rules on your blog
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

My quirks:
1. My maiden name is Quirk...seriously.

2. When I was little, my food would have to be totally separate on my plate. For example, if I had chicken, potatoes and peas for dinner, the peas could not touch the potatoes, the potatoes could not touch the chicken, etc. I've since grown out of that.

3. Speaking of food, I always eat my salad last, except in restaurants where that's a little bit difficult. It's not a compulsion or anything, I just prefer to eat salad last. (This only applies to green salad)

4. For a long time I was afraid to swim by myself, even in a pool. I thought that as soon as I was alone in the water a shark would appear out of nowhere, like a door was opened and a shark swam out. I've outgrown this for the most part but still have to remind myself that it would be impossible for a shark to suddenly appear in a pool.

5. Anything having to do with the Achilles tendon freaks me out. It would give me chills if someone were to touch my Achilles... and the thought of some one's Achilles getting cut? Ugh..shudder.

6. I refuse to touch raw chicken. I will do anything possible not to touch it. Good thing my husband cooks.

I'm with you on the raw chicken. I will touch it, but only very gingerly.

Thanks for tagging me and for listing me on your blogroll -- I'm honored. The next time I have thirty minutes when I am not playing play-doh with a toddler or nursing a newborn, I look forward to sharing my quirks and exploring your blog.

Your name was Bailey Quirk and you changed it? That's the best name ever. It's a born movie star name? And the nominee is...

I'm totally with you on the shark business. Also, I saw that movie Crocodile (or something like that) when I was a kid and to this day worry that a croc flushed down a toilet would grow to gargantuan sizes and wind up in a pool that I just dove in to. What? It could happen.
