Five Idiosyncrasies

Well, my first blog tag, thanks to Lutheran Chik, I am going to share with you five of my idiosyncrasies. Now, if you were to ask my friends OR my husband, they may have completely different ideas of what the peculiarities are that make me who I am that some might thing as quirky. And, in addition, I get to tag 5 people, and oh, how I would like to tag some, but since they remain blogless (at least if they have a blog, they have not divulged that information to me), I will have to resort to only tagging those that have blogs. Now, since I am aware that my children also read this blog, I request no comments from their peanut gallery unless it is NICE.

I will also mention that 4 of the 5 of Lutheran Chick's peculiarities really sounded ALOT like mine, so I will try to spin my quirks on some different stuff.

Since I have now set the boundaries for my comments, I will proceed to what I perceive are 5 of my many idiosyncrasies to be. I know I have more than these 5, especially since I am reminded of them by the folks that love me.

  • I can read upside down as easily as I can read right side up. I don't know why I can do that, I just can. I can also write in mirror style just about as easily. I also am considered left handed, but only use my left hand to write and use a spoon and fork. Everything else I do right handed. So what am I? Left handed or right handed? I don't think of myself as being ambidexterous, since I think of that as being able to use both equally well in the same task.
  • I hate procrastination, but I seem to love to hate it, since I procrastinate on a regular basis.
  • I can look at a musical score and can tell if the person playing the piece is playing it in a different key by listening to the music. I have an eclectic mixture of music recordings. I love choral music and two of my favorite groups are Anonymous 4 and Chanticleer. I also rarely know the words to popular songs of the 60s and 70s. I rarely know which group did which song unless it is a Beatles Song, Eagles (sometimes), and Sting. I also love the music from the 1920s -1940s, not to forget I love classical music.
  • I am a clutter magnet. I really don't see clutter until it is more than anyone can handle. My husband doesn't believe I don't see it.
  • I do have a pet peeve. I cannot tolerate commercials that feel compelled to yell at the listener. I avoid the stations that have them with a vengeance. Hence, I listen to ALOT of public radio. On the flip side, I can tune other stuff out and be in my own little world and not hear anything except what I am concentrating on.

Hmmm, who do I tag?? How about Ellen, Emily, Jessalu, Running2ks, and Norma. There, that ought to do it!

Who else would I like to tag?? My kids, along with Sharon, Beth, Kit, Sarah, and my husband - Angus has a blog, but I don't think he uses it. If the others have one, they have not admitted it.

Oooh good quirks. You know, my 5 year old sometimes writes in mirror image for fun. I think that is really cool. And your musical ear--that is a great talent to have.

I'm going to go do this! Thanks for the tag :)

Clutter is an idiosyncracy? Uh-oh. I just thought it was a way of life!
