Quirks- or weirdness

My friend Cyndi tagged me a long time ago to list some weird things about myself, so I thought I'd finally do it. It's taken me this long to think of weird stuff- you know, because I'm so normal!

1. We don't rinse our dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, but for some reason I have to rinse out the baby bottles. I'm pretty sure if the dishwasher can get baked on food off of pots and pans it will do a fine job on formula in baby bottles! I can't help myself though.

2. I like to eat olives by themselves, but I don't like them in or on any other food.

3. I like to eat watermelon seeds. I really like it when there are a bunch left on the plate that I can eat all at once- they taste yummy and nutty. I don't really think that is weird, but Miles insists that it is!

4. I crack my knuckles, my back and my neck.

5. I'm shy. And I'm getting more and more shy the older I get. I especially don't like to call people on the phone, except family. Even for things like ordering food or questioning bills or other random things. I make Miles do most of those calls!

6. I don't like matching, folding up and putting away clean socks. I love summertime when we don't wear socks so I don't have to wash them.

7. I'm a particular sleeper. I can't sleep if the sheets or quilt are all messed up. I definitely can't sleep if there is monotonous noise going on- like snoring or loud breathing, ticking clocks, etc. If it's a constant noise, like a fan or the hum of the computer, then that is fine. I don't sleep very well on any other pillow than my own. I have to be covered by something- even if it's in the summer and really hot. I have trouble falling asleep at night and trouble waking up in the morning!

If you would like to share some quirks about yourself on your blog, please do! I know that I have some pretty quirky readers!
