Here we go 'round the mulberry bush

I’ve been tagged again… OH BOY… by none other than Terri, the 'Irish' Saffa, to blog about my quirks. Please no more, I beg you! So here I go again, baring my soul and risk people looking at me funny. Oh what the heck... they already do. Oddly enough, a self-confessed “wacko” like me has surprisingly few quirks… or is 15 a bit too much.

  1. I line things up with the edges of my desk, like the piles of paper are always square and in the exact corner of my desk
  2. If I have a lot of change, I’ll put some in each pocket. Then I’ll thrust my hands into my pockets and try to count them simultaneously by feel alone and add the totals in my head. The problem is that other ppl, think I am touching myself. Once, while waiting in line at the bank, a woman kept looking at me. I got so pissed at her that pretended to have an orgasm. I think she almost fainted. (Be warned: I have no shame!!)
  3. Whenever I think of something bad, or wrong that could cause bodily harm, I always clench my fists and will shake my head once to rid myself of the thought.
  4. I will purposely refuse to do something because I fear I may not be good at it. Then I go and do it anyway because I cannot bear not knowing.
  5. I’ll flirt with anyone and everyone, just to see how far I can push the other person’s boundaries. It’s a game to me and things don’t always work out as planned. There are many times when the other person pushes me beyond my boundaries instead.
  6. Let’s get weird… I cannot wear the same piece of clothing like a jersey or a jacket or trousers/jeans more than once unless it has been washed/cleaned, even if it is not dirty. If I have to take off my socks for some reason, like when I go swimming or walk bare feet, I cannot put them back on again.
  7. If I see a lot of numbers, I try to see if the numbers are somehow related. Like if there is something that I can add, subtract, multiply, divide, etc. to get them to all be connected to one another.
  8. I can't fucking stand it when people are too close to me or look over my shoulder when I use my computer.
  9. I have to be the one to pick up a girl. If she tries to pick me up, I’ll tell her to fuck off even is she is the sexiest, cutest thing on two legs. I’d hate myself afterward, but that is how I am.
  10. I hate kissing family members at reunions or parties. Those of you who are South African will know that the traditional custom is to kiss on the mouth. Yikes!! I hate that with all my being!
  11. When I get up in the morning, the very first thing I do is take a shower and brush my teeth. I am not comfortable facing anyone until I’ve done that.
  12. I can imitate the voices of almost all the Simpsons' characters and if I hear someone say something funny on TV, I will repeat it and say it exactly as they did and with the same accent.
  13. I hate people with dirty finger nails. Get thee to hell, thy gravedigger!
  14. If I visit your house and your bathroom is dirty, I will refuse to eat or drink anything that you offer to me. Irrespctive of how hungry I am.
  15. I am always on the side of the underdog, because I like people beating the odds and do extraordinary things.

So in carrying on with tradition, I will, without shame, pass the baton to the following ppl: Omid, Kyknoord, Ekapa, Andrea and That Man. IITQ... consider yourself spared! Don’t hate the player, hate the game!

(PS… regular posting will resume after the commercial break)

NOTE: If you want to comment, cick on Footnotes and leave a comment there. I am in the process of changing my layout and blogger comments will disappear from the template once I have finalised it.
