Quirk: a peculiar trait, idiosyncracy

Huckdoll tagged me to do this meme: a list of 6 quirky things. Let me just preface this list by saying, it's really hard to keep it clean!!

1. In order to keep myself from having to make decisions, I make little games or rules for myself. Things like, I must wear things as they are ordered in the closet. Or my latest, I'm listening to my cds (keep in mind, they're all Broadway musicals) by finding their degrees of separation to each other. For instance, I'm listening to A Chorus Line, which features Wayne Cilento, who choreographed The Who's Tommy, which starred Marcia Mitzman who was in Chess...and so on and so forth. Prior to making up this little game, I was listening to them in order of the organizer, which got boring.

2. I've never been to a rock concert - yet I've been to the opera, jazz concerts/festivals, countless musicals and plays, and local clubs like The Whiskey. I really want to see Prince, but I can't afford the $3,000 (or standing room $300) ticket.

3. I'm a 3-fisted drinker, when possible. I like to have a soda, an alcoholic beverage, and coffee all at one time.

4. But the chances of me finishing any of those drinks are slim to none. I never finish a drink.

5. I can get in and out of a women's restroom (provided there's no line) in about a minute (and no, I don't take shortcuts - I wash my hands!). I can also get ready to go out in 5 minutes. I also hate shopping and jewelry. All of these combined have made some question whether or not I'm a real woman.

6. In fact, the consensus is that I'm a gay man trapped in a straight woman's body.

And that's as clean as I can keep it, people! I don't tag (hey, could I've listed that as a quirk?) so have at it if you're so inclined...

I'm with you on number five except for the part about shopping. I love to shop. I often get up 15 minutes before I have to leave for work and make it in on time.

Huckdoll said...

I hate shopping too! I need a credit card so I can do it all online...but Baby Daddy is smarter than that and won't leave one at home :)

Great quirks! Thanks for participating.

I hear you on the bathroom line and getting ready to go out. I swear, I'm showered dressed and on my way out the door before CableDad has even decided to go. lol

and what's the story with women going to the bathroom in groups? I've never gotten that.

LOL - now I know why I like you so much - 5 and 6 sound like me, back when I had one male housemate and one female housemate my fellow girl and I would find ourselves honging out in the kitchen staring at the clock while the guy got ready. Only one of us was gay and it wasn't the guy!
