Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner

I love quirkiness. To be deemed quirky is, to me, a compliment of the highest rank. I hope y'all feel the same way, especially since I will very soon expose some of your quirks with the interweb. And I applaud your willingness to shamelessly exploit yourselves simply for my entertainment. You are clearly people with your priorities in order. I like that about y'all.

Now, moving on.

I never knew it was such a common illness for people to have dish problems. I was totally unaware of the absolute repugnance with the way other people load a dishwasher. Then there are those who feel they must smell or rinse every dish before using it. Man. Y'all got some mizads, yeah? (Translation: troubles.)

Let me also say, I now feel much better about myself. Even if I take issue with where the cheese is placed on my sandwich and nevermind the fact that I know what I'd eat for my last meal if I'm ever on death row. Y'all are still way more weird. Way more.

I hope.

These topped my list of happiness on a page:
* "I hate mugs, so I always drink coffee out of just a regular drinking cup." (Hates mugs. Hates. Who knew the mug could be so disgusting to someone?) :)
* "I usually have a glass of water and a book in every room of the house."
* "I have a birthmark on my right hip that is shaped like a lobster."
* "I eat strawberries and tomatoes at the same time."
* "Nothing fills me with joy quite like when i see someone trip!"
* "I can't open my eyes in the shower once they've gotten wet until I wipe them off with a towel. That's just how I roll."

* And this one which should have a category all its own, "I gave a pig a heart attack and it died."

My husband swears I did the same thing to a horse, but he lies.

Now onto the winner of my sweet prize! Which incidentally does not include a chicken dinner.
My random number winner is Commenter #4!

Congratulations to Bren J. of Stranger in a Stranger Land!!!

I hope your Monday is happy happy!

Now, I'm going to get a drink of water. But I'm gonna smell the cup and then rinse it out before I actually drink from it.

In an effort to make y'all feel more normal.

I'm all about being compassionate to the freaks.

I'm so proud to be your friend right now ... weirdo. I won't even get started about the freakish things I do.

I also sniff my glass & rinse it before filling, and I LOVE to see ppl trip. But, the lobster made me chuckle, just to imagine you id it.
And, the pig heartattack, must be another post in itself ( and if somebody trips ) it'll be a great read.
Remember my quirk of not liking to get my hands wet? Oh the challanges!

So that you don't feel alone in your wierdness...
1. I never put my cheese on the mustard side of my sandwich.
2. My favorite part of a loaf of bread is the heel/butt/end...
3. I can't deal with long nails. I think they're filthy.
4. I eat grilled cheese with tomatoes.
5. I'm a skin picker, any suspicious pits or bumps don't stand a chance.
6. I am neurotic about cutting my split ends with nail scissors.
