The Quirkiness of Life

Dear Diary, Trends

Chilly from On the Bricks has tagged me for a meme– the 6 Unspectacular Quirks About You Meme. Chilly, dear…. my WHOLE LIFE is unspectacularly quirky. Where on earth do I begin?!? Hmm.

1. I sometimes make up words, like “unspectacularly.” Not a word. Until now.

2. I love the starry skies at night. I could lay outside all night just looking at them and pondering them.

3. I love planting things: trees, flowers, vegetables, fruits, anything. My dream is to have my entire property one great big garden, with a house in the middle. A renovated house.

4. I always default to natural remedies first thing. Got a headache? Don’t take aspirin; go lay down in a dark room. I am very slow to reach for chemicals and pharmaceuticals, like Leptovox. I even clean my house with natural cleaners (like Borax, baking soda, pine cleaner).

5. I sleep with a pillow over my head, to block out light and sound. I am a very light sleeper, and the slightest sounds wake me up.

6. I hate bats. They flap around and bite. I hate them. But they love me! They always dive-bomb my way; maybe it is because I have a slightly higher body temperature than normal, and they detect the heat. But I cower from them and my husband must rescue me, even if it means calling him home to take care of it!

So there are the unspectacular quirks. Now I get to inflict 6 others with this meme! *cackles* Of course, I will be nice and say that you are under no obligation to do the meme, but in all actuality I will cry for days and refuse to read your emails if you don’t. šŸ˜‰ If you have already done this meme and have exhausted your supply of quirkiness, then just feel free to link to your old post, or ignore my pleas.

    Hi There! Nice job indeed!

    Wish I was a light sleeper like that. When I go to sleep, a bomb could go off at the foot of the bed and I wouldn’t know it. šŸ˜‰
