The Quirkiest Quirks

Tagged by Ashley
Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours:

1. I love animals. If you tell me a sad story about an animal getting hurt, I will cry. I can't handle seeing hurt animals on the news (ESPECIALLY dogs). They hold a special place in my heart, and it is unhealthy. If I find a spider in my house, I will let it outside. Spiders and I have a pact that if I don't kill them, they won't come back into my house.

2. I love the idea of reading. I get really excited over starting a new book, yet it takes me months (at the least) to finish a book. I wish I was a faster reader and read more. Also, I can't tell you how many books I've started and not finished. I'm not proud of it.

3. I'm obsessed with smells. I have too many candles, incense, room sprays, Fabreeze, wall plug-ins, smelly lotions, etc. than anyone knows what to do with. Also, I smell everything. Before I put anything into my mouth, you will most likely catch me smelling it. I honestly don't even realize that I do this as much as I do, but my Dad's usually the one to point it out. Whether I've tasted or smelled it a million times before, apparently I'll still smell it before I eat it.

4. I hate sewing. I've tried to like it. I can't. I had a brilliant idea of sewing a baby blanket for a gift a few months ago. I thought it'd be fun & cheap. Wrong. $60 later, I have a blanket that was obviously home-made. Too home-made to give away as a gift. Now I'm stuck with a blanket that cost a ridiculous amount of money. I have to admit that it's the softest blanket ever and I sleep with it every night.

5. I eat like a 5-year-old. Give me macaroni & cheese and a corndog, or a grilled cheese with ketchup and a glass of milk and I'm in heaven. Pretty sure Atkins wouldn't approve.

6. I bite the inside of my lips on a regular basis. I think it feels good. It drives Tannon batty.

*You're it: Missy, Caitlin, Chelsey, Jill, Kendall, Maren, Marci, & whoever else wants to participate.

You and your book problem- you're so silly... did you EVER finish The Lovely Bones? How about Breaking Dawn? :)
P.S. you just made me so hungry with your mention of corn dogs!

I read number six and as I read it I was biting the inside of my lip! I have missed you in the blogging world! I didn't know you changed the address.

I didn't know you started a blog again until I saw your comment on Kristy's! YEAH more to follow!

Cami said...

Yay McCall!!! I'm so glad you have a blog again, I've missed it. We reeeeeeaally need to get together soon! And your niece is sooooo cute!!! I bet you're the best aunt ever. :)

Caleb and Marci said...

oh... you tagged me... now I have to think, I will come up with something and do it soon. Come wash your dishes at my house any time.

Chris & Missy said...

Yup. That's my sister who has always been obsessed with smelly things. But luckily for me, I always have something to fall back on if I need to get ya a present!! I'm glad Tannon made it back from Ohio!1

Kristy is the same way, she cries whenever the Pedigree commercial comes on with the pictures of the dogs in the pound or the one with Sara McLaughlin. She also cries in movies such as Over the Hedge, etc. She made me promise her that animals go to heaven and we'll get to see them again. This site really helped out:
