Six weird and Random Things about me!

I was tagged by Avis at She Reads and Reads for the six quirky things about me meme. This is the first time I’ve been tagged for a meme, so thank you, Avis! The rules are:
  • Link to the person who tagged you
  • Post the rules on your blog
  • Write six random things/unspectacular quirks about yourself
  • Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them

  • Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog
  • Let the tagger know when your entry is posted

It was quite a challenge to think of some weird things about myself that I wanted to share with the world! So here goes....

  1. I have to wear socks to bed. Even when it's warm out. I rarely sleep without them. I've been known to get up in the middle of the night and put socks on and not realize it when I wake up in the morning with socks on!

  2. I like to have closet doors and cupboard doors closed all the time. It bugs me when my family leaves them wide open and there is no one around! Also, if I go to a friend or families house and I see their kitchen cupboards open, I like to close them!

  3. I have so many books to be read that my shelves are overflowing and it doesn't stop me from getting more books!!

  4. I am very picky about used books. I cannot stand books that stink from perfume or smoke, are water or food stained, torn, don't have dustjackets, have dog eared pages etc.

  5. I find solicitors who come to the door and call very annoying. It feels like a huge invasion of my privacy...especially the guys that bang on the door as if there is an emergency! I try to avoid them, unless it is school kids from the neighborhood selling for school fundraisers.

  6. I can't stand it when my gas tank is less than half full...I always worry that I will run out of gas and get stuck somewhere!

Now the question is who to tag next? I have no idea who has already done this meme, so apologies in advance if you’ve been tagged before (or hate this kind of thing). I hereby tag:


  1. Bonnie - I'll try to get to this meme tomorrow.

    I'm with you on 2-6. I can't wear socks at night - if my feet get too hot, I feel like I'm burning up all over.

    With the gas shortage here in Atlanta, I panic if we're even a little bit low on gas!

  2. I was tagged for this one from Serena and you so I'll be doing it soon. I'm still playing catch up. These are kind of fun though, don't you think? Yours are great-I have to think on mine a bit although I have a few like you so I may steal a couple. lol.

  3. I'm exactly the opposite - I can't sleep with socks on, even though I have terrible circulation and my feet are always cold. When I was little, I'd kick my socks off in the middle of the night, so when my sheets were changed, a week's worth of socks would fall out of the end of my bed!

  4. Bonnie, I'm pretty sure I've done this before, but thanks for thinking of me!

  5. Bonnie! Thanks for the tag. I hope to get to it this weekend or next week sometime... as you can see my blog has been neglected due to working on the house.

  6. Since I live in the southeast where we've been struggling through a gas shortage, I think I'm going to be like you on the gas tank from now on.

  7. Bonnie, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who hates closet and cupboard doors standing open!

  8. I'm with you and Shana; I hate open closet and cupboard doors too!

    Glad you were into being tagged!

  9. Bonnie - I am done!

  10. I am with you on #2! I do that too. :-) And #3 for that matter!
