Quirks & Confessions
« on: July 10, 2013, 01:10:02 AM »
I'm bored so I thought I'd start a fun thread (hopefully, that is).

Name about 10 things that you feel make you unique, or that are somewhat embarrassing to you.

C'mon, go ahead & share! Just not too personal though. :-)

I'll start off with my list...

Hard as I tried, and others tried to teach me, I couldn't get the hang of tying my own shoes correctly until I was 12. I'd get frustrated and just shove them down into my shoes.

Even now I'm still afraid of the dark.

I have to have a fan going at all times when I'm indoors. Otherwise, I get dizzy and nauseous.

I'm painfully envious of people who are visually artistic.

I'm the youngest of 6 kids, the oldest of 4, and an only child.

The smell of marijuana burning enrages me. I hate the stuff!

My eyes change color with my mood, ranging from Olive Green to Turquoise.

I used to be deathly afraid of cats. Now I have 11 of them.

I hate, and I mean really hate, to have my picture taken. As a matter of fact, very few photos of me exist & that's only because I was pretty much forced, was participating in family photos, or somebody took a sneaky candid shot.

10! Cheese - I don't know if I have that many bad points?  :toothy12:

Let's see...

  • I have permanently smelly feet - spend a fortune on Oder-Eaters!
  • I wear size 13 shoes
  • I have to shave twice a day
  • I find portion control a drag
  • I have a caffeine addiction
  • I am envious of gardeners
  • I hate heights - that's why I live in a bungalow (Hey I could be like Italy's Berlasconi and give bunga-bunga-low parties !  :cool: )
  • I'm too generous - is that a crime?
  • I window-shop for tech gadgets like there's a million bucks in my checking a/c
  • I have a burning desire for a 1935 Cadillac Fleetwood V8 Sedan because it reminds me of the 'Roaring Plenty' car from the Wacky Races cartoon

I think that'll do before I really embarrass myself

Only ten? This should be easy  :loath:

My orientation in space sucks big time. I can lose myself anywhere. I am always 100% positive that I know where I'm going and even GPS cannot help me (because I know where I'm going and stupid technology doesn't).

For a long time I've been refusing to place contact lenses into my eyes and didn't want to wear glasses so I was walking through the world not seeing anything or anyone. Quite a lot people got mad at me then as I wasn't recognizing them on the street.

I don't remember peoples' faces.

Sometimes I forget to eat. But I will never forget to drink my coffee. Actually, three of them during the day.

My favorite food is - pomme frites. And I am a slow eater.

I can drink way too much wine for a lady.

I am a workaholic and I never charge my work as much as I should.

I'm dreaming about spending my vacation by playing Sims and not leaving the house.

People around me think I'm funny and entertaining, but that is actually only my OCD speaking.

When I'm bored, I go to one of the forums where I have the admin rights and correct people's grammar/spelling mistakes.

Great thread guys! I love it!

Here's mine:

1. I love music ... but have ZERO musical ability.
2. I HATE having my picture taken.
3. I love a nice cold Coke!
4. I've always wanted a truck like they have on the Waltons! (1928 Ford Model AA)
5. I remember faces but I'm horrible with names.
6. I wake up in the morning quite hyper ... it really gets on my wife's nerves!
7. Sometimes I wish I were a fulltime chef! I love cooking!
8. I can say 'No' to sweets but offer me something salty? That's a different story!
9. I LOVE the smell of coffee but can't stand the taste.
10. I hate shaving. If I wasn't married I'd probably never shave! (Hmmm, I wonder how the ZZ Top look would be on me?)

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that,
but the really great makes you feel that you, too, can become great.”

I would like to add mine :)

1. I have an IQ of 143 based on the recent IQ test that I took. But I'm not sure about the integrity of it.  :angel4:

2. I like working online and freelancing but i hate that i work alone and socializing is almost nil espescially on busy days. At the same time, I abhor working for a company and I hate that I have to interact with coworkers  ;;:B

3. I eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a king and dinner like a king. I eat a lot haha

4. I am an agnostic and lean towards atheism. But I want to practice a Buddhist lifestyle. I'm still confused.

5. I have the same birthdate as my mom's.

6. I've lived in 6 different cities already. Yes, I move a lot.

7. I got romantically involved with someone in the office; ended us being total strangers. I told no one about it except my ex. Learned not to sh*t in my own backyard the hard way.

8. I've mellowed a lot. I used to listen to hard core metal songs when I was in the University. Now I can listen and appreciate songs from Beyonce and Adele

9. I don't watch those socalled reality shows.

10. My list of favorite movies includes Fight Club, Malena, Silver Linings Playbook, The Graduate, Mulholland Drive, among others.
