Thursday 13: Quirky Things About Me (Kwala)

This is the first time for me to join the Thursday Thirteen meme. So I think it is only apt for me to introduce myself to the Thursday Thirteen players. What better way than to list down 13 quirky things about me:

1. I am afraid of heights.
2. When I have to eat alone, I need to read.
3. My favorite color is purple/violet/lilac and I feel the extreme necessity to surround myself with all things purple/violet/lilac.
4. When I see a bookstore, I need to go in; and when I go in a bookstore, I need to buy something, anything.
5. I dream of being a published writer.
6. I am a world-renowned singer…in my head.
7. Unlike other women, I feel no joy in shopping for clothes and shoes. I feel it’s a chore. I only go shopping when I have to. (as in nothing fits me anymore)
8. If I were in a room with another person, mosquitoes will most likely bite me more than the other guy.
9. I am partial to Sony and Sony Ericsson brands for my gadgets.
10. When I eat, I need matching utensils; otherwise, I can’t enjoy my food.
11. I have crooked fingers, they arch so far back, they freak my husband out.
12. I hyperventilate at the sight of blood, but I hide it pretty well.
13. I’m a recovering coffee addict… who recently happily went on relapse.

Sometimes, shopping can feel like a chore, unless you find some bargains. Then it becomes the thrill of the hunt :)

Have a great Thursday!

The only shopping I really like takes place in a bookstore! =)

If I am eating alone at a restaurant I have to have a book, otherwise I don't know where to look....it is just too weird for me!

Happy TT!

I dislike shopping too. It is not fun for me at all and I avoid it all costs.
However, a bookstore is a different story. I can spend hours there. I try not to buy something before I leave, but I find it very difficult. ;)

I'm the same way about eating alone. It feels best when I'm also reading. Doesn't have to be a book though. Could be off my laptop.

You strayed from coffee sobriety? How shameful!! I'd say more about this appalling situation, but my
coffee is starting to cool. :-)

My TT: The One That Got Away

Welcome to Thursday Thirteen! Enjoy it! I don't like to shop much, either, unless it is for software or electronics.

Karen said...

Wow just about everything on this list applies to me too! Even your name! HA! Great idea by the way. :)

Unknown said...

Welcome to Thursday Thirteen. I gotta love a woman who detests shopping as much as I do.
Happy T13!

Nice list. It reminds me of the 100Things About Me that bloggers used to do and I still have. I love purple, bookstores and shopping in thrift shops just for the fun of it.

Thanks for visiting me today. I have to stop by and visit you again, we have a lot in common! I have to have a book too if I'm eating alone and if I go into a bookstore, my wallet takes a HUGE hit. I'm also afraid of heights and dream of being a published writer when I grow up--I'm only 55, heh.

Sarah Lynn said...

I love Sony products too. :)

And purple is my fav color too- it was a big theme in my wedding, since my husband's parents knew it was my fav color.

Cute, I could never think of 13 things off the top of my head!

Thanks for visiting my blog!!!

Re 6, do you have a specific genre you want to be published in?

And, man, I hear you on the coffee relapse. That stuff is way too good...:p

when you eat alone you read?

that is commendable!

Janet said...

I'm with you on #2!

L D said...

#3: So you must be a pretty prosperous person, huh? Purple is a power color!

Heart of Rachel said...

We have several things in common. I'm also afraid of heights. I can ride roller coasters but for some reason I get a weird feeling in my tummy when I look down from a high rise building. I'm also fond of purple/lilac. I always end up buying something at the bookstore. I also get 'bothered' when the utensils are mismatched. ha!ha!

Thanks for linking my blog. I've done the same.
