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 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.”

30 Day Song Challenge: Day 27

song challenge

Challenge: a song that you can play on an instrument

I don’t play any instruments although at one point in my life I’ve always wanted to play the piano and the violin. If I could play any song on an instrument, though, it’ll be The Verve’s ‘Bittersweet Symphony’. This song is nothing but the truth about life!

Quick fact: The strings were sampled from the 1965 Andrew Oldham Orchestra symphonic recording of “The Last Time” which was inspired by the 1965 Rolling Stones’ song of the same title, but for me, ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ will always belong to The Verve.

‘Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
You’re a slave to money then you die
I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the veins meet yeah,
