lol, babe. no one has used a derringer to shoot anyone since people drank bathtub gin and talking movies were the cat's pajamas!

i don't have any weird quirks. all of them have perfectly goods explanations, so they're not weird.

I have a certain way of using bath towels. If I don't have one at all, I get a clean one when I am going to take a shower. When I have finished drying, I put it on the towel rack and use it to dry my hands. The next time I take a shower, I get a clean towel for my hair, and I use the other one for my body. Then the old one goes in the hamper and the new one is used to dry my hands. If no one messes with it, it is a great rotation system.

That being said, DO NOT USE MY TOWEL!!! James still has a problem understanding how strongly I feel about it and will often use it. I told him that if he is going to use my towel, to throw it in the hamper when he is done, and get me a new one. He is getting a little better about it, but he still has a way to go!

I've got more quirks, but that is good for now.

Joke or not, Dh and I were held up one time by a fellow with a derringer...and a second gun in the waistband..He was so high on drugs, he walked right by me and I got up,went next door and called the cops..He and DH proceded to tear the store apart..DH won..the next day was when the nightmares began though..The first night all I could feel was anger..

Alarm clock time.
I have a set of rules about numbers that are "good" and "not good"

The time must be odd (6:01, 6:07 are good, 6:02, 6:04... are bad)

The numbers cant be in numerical order (6:54, 5:43.... bad) ** 6:54 is bad also because its even

No 2 of the same number in a time " 6:33, 6:55... not good "

If more than one number in the time is divisible by 3 , it is not good (6:09, 6:03 )

Cant end in 0 or 5 (6:30, 6:35 ...)

Just for the record, My alarms are set 6:01 and 6:07


Oh, I also hate when something is sticking out of a drawer ( like a sock, or part of a shirt, pants ...) Even if I try to forget about it, I will always have to return and fix it or else ill be thinking about it all day.

And NO, Im not being medicated for this !!! :)

I have Barbara's quirk---I'm real respective of germs and where they repose---they were there first and it's their territory and I don't want any part of them.......I refuse to use towels after anyone else and will dry hands on toilet paper or air dry them before using anyone's "communal" towel......just me.......seen too many wee beasties under the microscope, I guess..........

Shoes must be removed before you come in the house, leave the dirt at the door.

Hands must be washed when coming in from the outside, wherever you may have been - period.

I cannot sleep in a bed that is not made up either Texasgirl.

I like the dishwasher emptied before I go to bed.

None of this is weird to me, I'm told by others it is..........

Man, that would have ticked me off big time. What arrogance. I would probably have told that if she wants privacy she needs to go somewhere else. Then I would sing the Star Spangled Banner as loud as I could.
Just kidding on the last one. Or maybe not?

Michele I also take the shoes off the moment I walk through the front door, but more for the comfort factor, I never feel at home with something on my foot, I don't even like socks much unless it's really cold. I do think about dirt getting dragged into the house too but I don't say anything to others because I KNOW they would think of me nuts!!

I detest interruptions. It drives me insane when I am in the middle of doing something and I must stop and do something else before finishing it for whatever the reason. It is so much so that the principle extends to the washer and the dishwasher. I would often (to my extreme chagrin) find something left out 2 seconds after I started them, but I refuse to pause them to put them in, hey, the machine got going already, they have to wait until the next go-around as annoying as it is...
