Six Quirky Things

Trish over at Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin'? tagged me for this meme like a month ago. Everybody has probably seen it somewhere, so I won't bother to list the rules. I had a time figuring out 6 quirky things about me that I'd want the world to know.

1. I probably have 3 or 4 dozen puzzles on the shelves of my closet. I rarely take one out and put it together, but I can't stop myself from buying them -- I don't know why.

2. I still know the lyrics to most of the heavy metal songs from the 80's and a number of the new wave songs as well.

3. Reading first thing in the morning makes me nauseous (and yes, I'm absolutely positive that this has nothing to do with morning sickness). I also can't read in a moving vehicle, which makes trips in the car or on a plane a real snooze.

4. I can't wear a watch for more than a month before it stops working. Doesn't matter how much the watch costs.

5. I will make a spreadsheet given any excuse whatsoever.

6. There have been occasions when I've spent my last dollar on a hamburger.

Since so many people have already done this meme, I won't tag anyone. If you haven't done it, go ahead and share your quirkiness with us!

These are awesome! And I'll be sure never to buy you a watch. ;-)

I have the same problem with most watches. I found though that I can wear loose bracelet like watches without them stopping on me so regularly.

Wow crazy about reading in the morning! I love spreadsheets and lists too!

Can't wait to see what you "destash" for the Throw Away 50 Things Challenge.
