An Award

I am not into awards but when one of my most favorite bloggers gave me one, I had to accept! Thanks Claudia! Click on the link below to visit her in Turkey!

So now I have to name seven of my quirks. Where do I start? Then I have to nominate 5 of my favorite bloggers to do the same thing. I am mostly doing this because I made The Blog Tech and his sister tell me what they are. First they laughed and said, where do we start. But then they actually had trouble coming up with them. Personally, I think I am one of the quirkiest people I know. I think they had trouble picking individual ones because I am just a huge pile of inner tangled quirks! So, here goes:

1.) I love to be freezing and hate to be warm. When I get warm I feel tired and lazy. When I am freezing, I have a huge amount of energy. My family's lips are often blue. I love darkness and hate sunlight. In the summer I wake up at 4:00am so I can enjoy the darkness.

2.) I hate ice cream. It makes me cough. I could eat a pickle sandwich every day.

3.) I have a bit of a problem when it comes to cooking. I can't seem to cook for less than 20 people at a time. I never cook for myself. If I lived by myself, I would live on popcorn.

4.) I love spiders. I even have a tattoo of one on my butt. But I have a horrible fear of butterflies. They always attack me when I am outside.

5.) I have an abnormal sense of smell. I can't stand to be around people wearing perfumes and I detest the people that spray you with it in the store. When I am exposed to strong perfume smells, I immediately have to shower and lie down in a cool dark room to recuperate.

6.) I can spot a liar in a nano second. This has always pissed people off.

7.) I would rather receive a pumpkin as a present more than just about anything else I can think of.

8.) My kids insisted I add this one too. I love watching dead mother movies. This totally unnerves the two of them.

So, there you go. The ugly truth!

Now I pass the baton to 5 of my favorite blogs:

The Cottage By the Crane Lake

The Maaaaa of Pricilla

Beverly's Back Porch

The Wicked Stitcher

The Scrappy Appleyard

Have fun!

"We be of one blood, ye and I," except for the pumpkin thingy... I've fallen in love with spaghetti squash -- and, so have our local restaurants! I would say something about the spiders, but I refuse to discuss them.. Eeeeeuuuuuwwww!

Hmmm, the publicist is notoriously bad about my awards. I will have to butt her

very interesting, the dea mother movies just a tad diturbing but the rest is completely normal.
I join you in the perfume thing, i have such strong sensitivities the skin all peels off the inside of my mouth and I need my inhaler when around strong scent of any kind.
Because of my eyesight I too prefer the dark,, I think we might get along just fine,
I think you have a great blog and the award is very fitting.

#5 can have a name other than abnormal sense of smell : multiple chemical sensitivities. also, many commercial perfumes have horrid things added to them (air freshener type sprays can contain such lovelies as formaldehyde).

We share a few of these. 1. Remember, I'm the one who went to Alaska on vacation!!!! No.4 I love spiders! When I taught, I always did a unit on them and in this house we NEVER kill them! Many years ago (No.5) my daughter and I went to see The Nutcracker, got ill (very bad headaches)sitting next to a woman who bathed in her perfume! Love number 8, nothing like tricking the kids!

hehe I'm still laughing about pickle sandwiches ☺
now I'm so curious about dead mother movies !
I am so glad you listed Christers blog ;-)
I am so glad you like to cook for others so we get to watch all your great creations .
I promise not to wear perfume if we ever meet. LOVE the spider tattoo, though. I always wondered where to put one. This was a fun post. Congrats on the award. You deserve it. Take care.

How fun! Thanks for sharing! I love ice cream and would be happy to eat popcorn for a meal. Popcorn and a good cold pint of ale was my favorite single girl's dinner before I got married. =)
loved this list !!!!

You are so quirky compared to me! I think I am horribly boringly conventional in comparison to someone like you! I loved all your quirks, Octoberfarm! Thank you!
