Beck over at Little Daisy Chains (and the maker of some of my favorite hair clippies) tagged me a few days ago to list six of my most infamous quirks, so here they are!
#1. I have The Toes of Death - with them I can pinch hard enough to draw blood. Go ahead & scoff at my powers, just watch out the next time I'm sitting next to you! Be warned, I don't even have to be barefoot - socks are no match for my inhuman toe strength!
#2. I talk to animals. I am certain they understand what I'm saying ;-) I'm no dog whisperer, it's pretty much just conversational. I'm also very polite if it's an animal I don't know, just ask Mr. Squirrel who I greeted on my walk today.
#3. I have a couple of pairs of heels I can't wear because they are excruciatingly painful (& I have a HIGH tolerance for both pain & suffering for fashion), but I can't bear to get rid of them they are so beautiful. The picture is actually of one of these pairs. Sometimes I take them out of the closet & just look at them... sigh.
#4. Two of my favorite books of all time are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through The Looking-Glass. The books are so much better & weirder than any of the movies! I absolutely love the original illustrations by John Tenniel. This one is my favorite, where Alice is trying to play croquet with a flamingo as a mallet & hedgehogs as the balls!
#5. My favorite drink of all time is water! Even as a kid I'd always choose water over soda or juice - yuck! Probably my only healthy habit ;-)
#6. I always eat around the edges of my Reese's Peanut Butter Cups first & save the peanut buttery goodness of the middle for last! Oh & they are my most favorite sweet ever & if you give me one I will be your best friend! One of my co-workers gave me a whole bag of them for my drive from LA to Portland & I wasn't really sure if I should thank her or curse her!
