Me Quirky?

Cher Mere over at Catching Fireflies has tagged me for this quirky game of tag. Be sure to check below to see if you are tagged. If you are not tagged and would like to play along, make a comment and I'll include you right away.

Here are a the quirks I could think of:

-I spend a fair amount of time sculpting large scale works, in my imagination, or in my dreams, out of mashed potatoes.
(I've never shared this before or even clearly admitted it to myself.)

-I have a high need for economy and cannot bear much waste. It goes as far as wearing the same outfit, at times, for a few consecutive days even, until it actually needs washing. This strategy also saves me time each day coming up with a new outfit.

-I really love dogs, and have always had them. Couldn't imagine my life without them. Funny thing is though, I really don't like them to touch me very much. Once in a while, I will lavish some affection, but mostly I just love to look at them at a safe distance of about 3 feet away. Don't I sound horrible?!

-I usually wear the same earrings for about a decade until I tire of them and get something new. Preferably something simple and 18 karat gold.

-I really don't like the feeling/taste of wood in my mouth. Tongue depressors, toothpicks, or popsicle sticks. Funny though, chopsticks have never bothered me.

-If I need to get up at a certain time, I set a "clock" in my mind and it wakes me up. Maybe it's because an alarm clock is pure violence for me to wake up to.

I'm now tagging Mary Ann at Blue Sky Dreaming,
Zoe at Vale of Evening Fog,

Wow, the mash potato art dream is interesting.

I wear the same outfits as well. I have some pretty dresses for special occasions, but for every day I alternate only about 2 or 3 outfits until they wear out. I call them my "uniforms". I hate to ruin clothes doing things I enjoy and this cuts down on spending because then I just have my few "special outfits".

Very quirky! I love it! Everyone of them could be the focus of a short story.

I gave it a try on the Quirky tag. I'm just so new at this that I fell short in linking properly and finding others to tag. Maybe next time when I'm smarter? mashed potatoes?!! One of my quirks is that I've only loved Virgo men?
