Day 6: Pet peeves

When the Lord’s name is taken in vain.

Day 7: Reasons to be happy

Just waking up to see another day! Being alive and being able to breathe is beautiful and enough reason to be happy! ❀

Day 8: Random quirks of mine

Random? Try weird. I refuse to travel in red cars unless it’s someone I know at the wheel. When it comes to money, all bills must be facing the same way – largest to smallest. When I sneeze, I dislike it when someone says ‘Bless you.’ I must have clean feet when I go to bed. In order for me to work/write, things have to be messy as possible. When I used to watch TV and I turned it off it has to be on channel 5.

Before I go to bed at night, I must make sure that the locks on the doors are locked and this may mean me unlocking them to lock them again. If I like a song, I put it on repeat 4 times. Yep, just 4.

Shucks! I got carried away! Are they even quirks, quarks, or just obsessive compulsives? *shrugging*

Day 9: Favorite songs

Honestly, I don’t listen to music as before, but I do like a few songs at the moment:

* Draw Me Close to You – Michael W. Smith

* Bittersweet Symphony – The Verve

* Mambo Italiano – Rosemary Clooney

* No Fakes – Dobre Brothers

* Nothing’s Impossible – Depeche Mode

* That’s Amore – Dean Martin

Day 10: Odd facts I know

Haha! Yes! Because I’m a walking encyclopedia, I know these things! Kidding. Kidding. But I love weird fun facts so I’ll share 4 that I know off the top of my head:

* A sneeze travels out your mouth at over 100 m.p.h.

* Cleaveland spelled backward is ‘DNA level C’

* When ATMs were first invented, it was originally thought to be a failure for the only users were people who didn’t want to deal with the tellers face to face: gamblers and prostitutes.Β 

*Β The French government gives medals to citizens who have “successfully raised several children with dignity.”

    1. Thank you! I tend to lean towards Smith when it comes to gospel music for his voice is so soothing and honest that I don’t want to listen to anyone else.

      1. Honestly, I got into him late, say, around the 2000s. But it was love at first listen and I haven’t looked back since.

  2. I’m with you on #6, #7 is spot on. Now to #8 yes they are quirks. I have many of them myself hahaha. Our quirks are what make us, us πŸ˜‰ All my bills have to be the same way too. It drives the tellers at the bank crazy, or people behind me in line when I get my money or change πŸ˜‰ because I have to do it right then. I purchase wallets that have the appropriate number of slots for the number of different bills too. They must be separate hahaha. I love Bittersweet Symphony – The Verve. It has been on repeat many, many time πŸ˜‰ I laughed so hard at the ATM’s. The 2 they thought would use them the most. I dare say, use them the least hahaha πŸ˜‰

    1. Yes, someone who understands! I knew there was more than one reasons why I love you! πŸ™‚ I remember you talking about liking Bittersweet Symphony. It was my ringtone at one time as well. Haha! True!

      1. That used to be my ringtone for quite some years too! My phone has gotten accustomed to it that sometimes it reverts back to that ringtone and I don’t mind at all. Yes, they certainly do. 😁
