Please tell me you do these things too.

Ya'll already know I'm the ole widow lady with two cats so not only am I dealing with that cliche I have a few ('s my blog and if I choose to say a FEW then it is a FEW) quirks that I hope we have in common.

1. When I run the vacuum and it won't suck up a piece of popcorn, lint, thread or whatever I will pick up the "nonsuckable" object, look at it and then throw it back on the floor to give the vacuum another chance. I have no clue why I don't just throw the "unsuckable" stuff in the trash while I have it in my hand. If the vacuum still won't suck that stuff up I have been known to kick the unsuckable object under the coffee table.

2. M & M's have to be eaten in even numbers. Two, four, six = good. One, three, five = work of the devil. However, it is perfectly acceptable to mix the colors in any way you choose. Hey...I have rules but I am not unreasonable.

3. When I shave my legs the left one is always first, same for armpits. Fortunately I only have to deal with this one May through August as the path to hell is lined with people who shave their legs during the months that contain R's. I have been told that this habit may have something to do with why I don't date but I really don't see the connection.

4. When I play Freecell (of course not at work, I would NEVER do that) my stacks HAVE to be in the correct order. Hearts, spades, diamonds then clubs. If they aren't in the right order then the win DOES NOT count. Sorry, if you have been playing this game incorrectly but that's just the way it has to be if you want to win the right way. Yes, as a matter of fact I am absolutely positive MY way is the RIGHT way. Good Lord, it's not like I made the rule up!

5. OH...I don't think this is weird, I think it's logical BUT my spices are alphabetical, my canned goods are in order and all face the front with the duplicates behind the "lead" can and yes I really do call it the "lead" can.

OK...these are a few of my quirks, what have you got to bring to the table?? Don't you dare TRY to tell me you don't have any as I know better. You wouldn't be interested in anything I have to say if you were normal.

I eat my M& M's two at a time and they have to be different colors.

Not this is not normal or anything, but I actually have my pantry shelves labeled. Like, vegetables, fruits, beverage and so on. Also I have my "lead" cans with the duplicate followers in row. Not that this is not normal.Is it???lol..
Good post, Jan
Have a good day.
OH, I just eat m&ms by the handful. So, there. I am normal after all.

Um, no. But come to think of it, I shave my left leg first, too. Hmmm.

I like how you offer this up without turning it into a chain letter (oops, I mean meme).
I think when I have a handful of M&Ms, I eat them so that when I get near the end, I have one of each color. And yes, I do the same dang thing with the vacuum cleaner. This was a great post!

I do #1, 3, and 5! So at least you're not alone!

I would like you to come over and rearrange my spice drawer please.

The volume in my car has to be on an even level.

Hi, I've tried to email you, but I fear my email has gone into your spam folder. Can you please email me? Thanks!

I feel so dirty and disorganized just being near you!! You would absolutely have some serious physical crisis if you saw my shelves.

That thing you do with giving your vacuum a second chance? I do it, too, but if it doesn't get sucked up - well that's the popcorn's fault for being on the floor in the first place.

And lastly, I shave the right side first, but then again I am left-handed.

Ditto for M & M's, spices and lead cans. I also organize my clothes by seasonal and colors. My shoe closet is all just color organized. When I used to buy lace panties I separated by lace and cotton and of course color!

P.S. Do not leave any dishes or junk on my counters. You should see my refrigerator!
