12 quirks...

I decided that since I got tagged twice - once Lydia and once by Angela, I would go ahead and list 12 sorta short quirks/little know facts. I hope they're not too boring...

1. To make a sandwich the bread must match up. I want all sides to match and the mayo needs to be spread evenly all over the bread. Think of it like wall-to-wall carpeting, it must go up to all edges.

2. I'm scared of pool drains. I don't even like to swim over them. They literally give me the willies.

3. Although most people who know me casually would not believe it, I can cry all the time. I think the ASPCA commercials for homeless dogs is just about the most heart wrenching out there.

4. I can tell you how old most celebrities are. I'm not sure why, but is just an odd talent.

5. I can wiggle my ears

6. I read an average of 4 books a week. I would say I easily read 200 books a year.

7. I love true crime shows. I am fascinated, yet repelled by evil in the world.

8. If you have spent the night at my house, I have probably checked to see if you are breathing.

9. I get my feelings hurt a lot. I rarely say anything and just try to get over it.

10. I am more nostalgic, hopeful, loving, and traditional than even my closest friends probably realize - I just don't show it because I am afraid of being rejected or laughed at.

11. I was very unpopular until the age of 13. Up to that point I only had two friends. To this day I am grateful for all of the friendships I have.

12. I love biographies. I love reading about people's lives and the times they lived in. (I am currently watching a PBS bio on Harry and Bess Truman)

Wow, you've got 12 and I could only think of 4!! I'm with you on the bread... I take two pieces out of the loaf and open them like a book. It would drive me crazy in the caf at BSC when you'd ask for a grilled cheese sandwich and they'd do the bread wrong... I can't think of how to describe it but I know you know what I mean. But as for the mayo, I just sort of smear it on, and I tease my sister about spreading it on so evenly it's like she's painting a wall....

Okay...Thinking...thinking...

Katie, Have you seen this web site:

http://www.teensreadtoo.com ?

I know you work with children's/teen sections and this isn't a bad site for information.

Thanks, Susie! I use that site periodically to check and see what's hot and popular.
