Tag, I'm It ... Twice ...

Two of my favorite virtual peeps, Sassy and Miss Caught Up, tagged me with a meme on the same day last week. So in a rare weekend appearance of The Diva, I now present to you - six random habits/things/quirks about me. I'll give you a minute to recover from the thrill of anticipation while I list the rules. ~wink~

1. Link to the person that tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.
6. Let your tagged peeps know once your entry is UP.

  • Although I love to bake and am well-known for my creations, the feel of raw flour on my hands really freaks me out. Touching flour provokes in me the same reaction as nails on a chalk board. ~shiver~
  • I put my mascara on *before* my eyeshadow. This is contrary to every rule in the make-up book and I don't care! It works for me.
  • I'm a little freaked out about this one ... but ... I may be developing a fondness for "Coldplay." Believe me, I'm every bit as shocked and dismayed by this as you - but I've downloaded an alarming number of Coldplay tunes in the last few months ... ok, two. But that's two more than I ever imagined I would. Stay tuned for future developments.
  • I may need a tweleve step program for my coat fetish. My love of coats knows no bounds and borders on addiction. The husband may actually disown me if I buy another ... and yet there was this cute little red number in the Gap last week ... help me!
  • I drink tea in the morning, not coffee, and I'm picky about the brand. I prefer Barry's Irish Tea - Gold Blend. I like it very dark and very strong, with just a touch of non-fat milk, and it must be served in a HUGE mug ... no pansy-ass dainty teacups in Divaland. I cannot and will not leave the house until I've had my morning tea.
  • I bat left and throw right ... all the great hitters do. ~wink~
Although that's six, I'm going to add a seventh ... I believe rules are made to be broken - and I'm breaking the rules a bit here on this meme. I'm not going to associate a tag on this - because half the people I would have hit have done it already. If you're reading this and want to use it yourself - consider yourself tagged and go for it - but do let me know if you do. I really enjoy reading the responses to these things. Its a fun way to get to know each other. If you don't want to use the meme, by all means leave a few of your quirks in the comments ... curious Diva wants to know!

I've also received this lovely award from the always charming Miss Caught Up - and I must say the feeling is mutual. Amanda, you make me smile everyday. Thank You! On a similar note, I'm passing on this award to everyone who's reading or has ever read my blog. I'm immensely grateful to all of you and want to let you know how much you make me smile. Consider this a great BIG thank you for all of your encouragement and I say that with the utmost sincerity.

That's a broad interpretation of the rules to be sure ... but then again, the Diva has always been something of a rule-breaker ... and I'm guessing you knew that already.

I will restack dishes after a helper has left my kitchen if everything has not been out away exactly where I woul put it - I'm a Virgo after all.
I keep hand lotion everywhere and use it whenever I wash my hands.
I'm addicted to my treadmill.
I never wear clothes that have not ben ironed - I have even take an iron on trips (not the travel type either).
I love computer games (like sudoku).
I can read to the point where the world around me disappears (ask my family LOL).

1. I have a serious coat fetish as well! Maybe it's genetic! I can't believe I have no modern short winter coat in my closet soooo..L & T here I come. Happens every year.
2. Though my family may disagree (what?) I am thick-headed. Some may say stubborn.
3. I hate house cleaning but like a clean house.
4. I rearrange dishes in the dishwasher and I'm not a Virgo!
5. I watch 'Gilmore Girls' (I'm in love with Luke) and 'Say Yes to the Dress'! Don't spread this around.

Love reading these!

Deb, I'm that way about my dishwasher ... I will reload it after a helper if everything is not in the *right* place. LOL

Pixelgal - ah so that's where I got both the coat fetish and the dishwasher madness! ;)

Miss Caught Up said...

I wish I had a coat fetish, instead of a shoe fetish! I never have any warm coats for winter and I'm so picky when it comes to coats for some reason. I don't know why... :(

And by the way, I am so going to make that apple cake!!! I love apple pies! Well.. I just like apple pastries in general :) I don't know what it is about apples in pastries, pies, and cakes...

The Diva on a Diet said...

We're opposites then, MCU, I hate shopping for shoes! They never fit me right and I'd just as soon go barefoot. :(

Do dry the apple cake, I think you'l like it. If you're not on the SB diet or anything, you can use the recipe as it is and just use sugar rather than the agave/sugar combination.
