Kristin tagged me for a "quirky" meme and sadly it's taken me this long to blog but also to finally admit some of them. Now I'm sure my family and friends could spout off an even longer list. But they want their Christmas gifts so they won't.

So here goes...6 quirky things about myself...for the whole big internet's enjoyment.

1. I cannot fall asleep without the t.v. on. I usually pop in a DVD like "Friends" or "The Office" and am out like a light. I praise the Lord for giving me a truly patient husband that can tolerate this. I will proudly admit though that I did make it through college with no t.v. at night. How, not sure?

2. I love Starbucks...just can't stand tea or coffee. I love the atmosphere and believe me I've tried to love coffee but can't do it. I'll gladly suggest it as a location for a meeting, but I usually just get a bottle of cocoa if it's the winter. If only they served Dr. Pepper I'd be complete.

3. I love ice in my orange juice.

4. I dig the coincidental that I would write that today. What a sad one it has been. No, but thanks to my dad I do love the stock market and check it one too many times throughout the day seeing what it's up to.

5. We sleep with the ceiling fan on at night. No matter what season. It's just cozy that way.

6. I never get rid of a book once I've read it. Anyone can borrow them, but they live on my shelves like trophies.

Okay so there we go. I won't tag anyone to do this, but do leave a comment of a least one quirky thing about you or if you're game feel free to do the whole thing on your blog.

Thanks for playing! Your list was great :)

So funny about Starbucks!

We also sleep with the ceiling fan on, in fact, the only time we turn it off is when we leave town.

I'm the same way with my books. I've never gotten rid of any of them.

I watch Friends or Everybody Loves Raymond DVDs to fall asleep to every night as well!! LOL! My husband is less tolerant, however...We also leave the ceiling fan on all year.

Ice in your orange juice? Now that's just gross. :)

I am the same way with the ceiling fan. It has to be on! But I'm even worse than you. Not only do I have to have the ceiling fan on, I have a little fan beside my bed too!

I like Starbucks (and tea) but hate coffee. I love the smell of it though and the music they play in Starbucks. Plus I love that there is one on every corner here and I can use their bathrooms.

I remember staying at your house when we were younger and turning off the TV when you went to sleep because I am the exact opposite -- I can't sleep with noise. Since I moved to NY though things have changed on that front.

I also hoard books and treasure them like trophies.

Fun! I might blog this too even though I have no readers yet. haha

OH MY! WE ARE THE SAME PERSON!!! All of these are "me" except for the stock market thing...I am interested, but I don't check it all the time! :) We SO need to hang out!!!
I can't believe there's another "Friends" addict out there- I fall asleep to them every single night! (with my celing fan on!)

I love DP and OJ with ice too!! Oh and we ALWAYS sleep with the fan on!

Rebecca Jo said...

I'm the same way with books myself! I even had to create a whole room just for them!! The good thing - my memory is horrible so I can read them again & not remember the story!

I totally LOVE ice in my OJ as well!!!! hee hee
BTW...I just posted a giveaway on my blog! Check it out if you get a chance!

I used to sleep with the TV on when I was in college.
