Quirky, Unique, Special, Weird

When you adopt you have to provide a TON of very personal information to your agency, your case worker, the state, tons of people.  It makes you take a very close look at yourself.  I’d say I’ve always been fairly self-aware but lately I have started to notice that I have some weird tendencies.

  • When I dab on my cuticle oil in my head I make this noise every time when I touch the brush to each nail.  Banga, banga, banga.
  • When I put on my makeup I host an infomercial in my head.  I go through each step and help viewers with their day or evening looks. I provide valuable tips.
  • I sing in the car.  Loudly.  And I swear to you, when I’m alone and singing with the iPod or radio, I sound fantastic.  As soon as someone else starts listening I go completely tone deaf.  It’s the darnedest thing!

I am also aware of my faults. I am:

  • bossy
  • possessive
  • jealous
  • impatient
  • annoyed easily by stupidity (stupidity, not ignorance.  Ignorance can be overcome by learning.)
  • convinced that if people would just do what I say then they’d be much happier and better off in general.
  • a bit lazy
  • horrible at time management

I’m working on these things so I can be a good parent, but some are just ingrained in me because I am a classic textbook Leo.  And you can’t fight the stars!

What are your little quirks?
