My first "Tag" and a COOL award

This is a first for me. Of course I've only been doing this for one month and one day..(WOO HOO)...So I was tagged by Awesome Carol from Charli and Me (go see her wonderful blog for sure!)

I'm supposed to follow rules...which is really hard for me...but they are as follows: link back to the tagger, tag 6 more people and let them know they've been tagged. And I'm supposed to List 6 quirky things about myself....

Hmmmm 6 quirky things about me??? I just asked my hubby...he said and I quote "6!!!! I can think of 60!!!! in fact 6000!!!" hmmm I'm thinking he's gonna be sleeping on the couch tonight!

The first would have to be that I am a book addict. I usually have 2 to 3 books going at one time. I carry a book in my purse, there is one on the nightstand, one in the ledge of my tub, and one in my truck. I just make sure that they are by different authors so I don't get the stories mixed up. If I stop at a stoplight I pick up my book, waiting at a drive up window...yup I'm reading in line. Any unused second of every day I'm reading.

I regularly get stuck on a type of food and then eat it every day for weeks on end. Until I get sick of it and then won't touch it for years. Unless of course we're talking chocolate. That I will NEVER give up.

I hate shoes! HATE HATE HATE wearing shoes and socks. You'll never catch me at home wearing anything on my feet. Unless there is a sign that says "no shoes no service" or there is snow on the ground...I am barefoot!

I don't like shopping for anything except furniture. I could go furniture shopping every day and be happy as a clam. But you'll never find me in the mall unless I have no other option. I buy almost everything I wear on-line. The mall and me are mortal enemies!

I am TERRIFIED of grasshoppers or anything that resembles one. I can pick up snakes, spiders lizards or any other creepy crawlies...but get me within a mile of a grasshopper and my brain turns to mush and I FREAK OUT!

I'm a "channel flipper" I have to flip channels on every commercial...and sometimes during a show I'm watching...It's not unusual for me to watch several shows at the same time! It makes my dear hubby NUTS!!!!!!

So now that you know what a spaz I am...It's your turn. Here are the people I want to tag:

Tracey at I am me She's a sweetheart, and an animal lover so that makes her way cool!...go visit her blog!

Michael at Captain Obvious (this should be interesting...He's a hoot!)

Rhonda at Scooterblu's Whimsey She seems like such a sweet and normal lady...lets see if she even has quirks!

Kyley at Crazy Kyley This girl is CRAZY and she makes me laugh. You just know she's got some interesting quirks!!

Cathy at Catnabarn I've known Cathy for a long time from RMS....but I don't know her quirks..its time for her to fess up!

Bo at blinks and winks
She's a new blogger friend...and how better to get to know someone than to know their weird secrets!

And now for the supercoolfunstuff! Elizabeth over at Thoughts from an Evil Overlord (I just love that blog name!) Gave me this KILLER award. I always wanted to be kick a@@ at something! Thanks Elizabeth!!!

Hi Nikki,
Congratulations on your award! It is funny about your quirks. I hate snakes....don't see how you could pick one up!
Have a great day,

The shoes, food, and shopping for furniture are me to a T! The rest, I can handle grasshoppers but don't even think about asking me to hold a reptile, spider, or any other creepy crawly thing! I can kill the spiders (which my whimpy boys can't, they'll only suck them up in the vaccuum) but I can't hold them. I love to read but have to take it one book and the Reader's Digest at a time! My husband is the channel flipper here. I could never watch TV with you, you'd drive me crazy!!! It's so fun to learn more about you, thanks for posting this!! Cindy

P.S. Forgot to say congrats on the award, it's well deserved!

I'm with you - barefoot or Birkenstocks whenever possible! The remote is always nearby - especially to mute the darn commercials that BLAST at you between the programs! ~ Robyn

Well thank you for the props, Nikki! Now the pressure is on...6 quirky things about moi? I'm just so close to perfect that it's gonna be hard to come up with 6.

Love your blog and the dogs are hysterical in your photos. Can't wait to see this Dogs on Thursday.

Funny you got tagged because I tagged you over at my blog if you would like to play this one too.

My, my, we're very similiar. Could it be that we were separated at birth?

I always seem to have more than one book on the go, although I draw that line at reading while I'm driving.

I've been on a tuna kick for...hmmm....several years now.

I laugh when I visit people and they tell me to keep my shoes on. I WANT to take my shoes off and much prefer to go barefoot, as well. I like shoes, but I have a very 'difficult' foot to fit, so shopping for shoes is no fun for me.

Things for the house though, that's another story. I've actually just put a personal moratorium on buying anything more for the house until I get my wardrobe back in shape. I wear my clothes until they're literally worn out. So very ungirly of me, I know.

I think I could handle grasshoppers, but snakes and BIG spiders creep me out.

I'm not a channel flipper so much as a mute button addict. As soon as a commercial comes on, I silence it.

Congrats on your award!

Hi Nikki,
I certainly have some of your quirks. I channel surf too. Drives my hubby crazy. I get stuck on a certain food and when we go out I tend to order the same thing. My hubby doesn't understand this at all LOL How can you go bare footed and be afraid of grasshoppers? LOL Loved your post!

Have a wonderful Labor Day! Thank you for all your prayers and blessings,

Hi Nikki, you little ole K.A.B. you! Thanks for tagging me...sounds like FUN...I'll try my best to narrow my quirks down to 6...LOL. My 12 year old grandson was here for the weekend and I showed him the "Squirrel Hunting" blogs and he cracked up...told me I need to WORK ON MY BLOG...hmmph!

Nancy said...

Hi Nikki, congrats on that award. I am a channel flipper thought I was the only female that flipped...glad to know I am not alone! Blessings, Nancy

Cherry's Jubilee said...

Congrats on the awards...loved hearing about you! I don't care for the mall either. Happy Labor day darlin. cherry

Kathy said...

Hi Nikki, Congrats on your award. I do that with food haha, books are my passion also, and furniture shopping I am right there with you, but I kinda like grasshoppers. Have a wonderful week, Kathy.

bj said...

I loved reading your quirks...I am the same way about channel surfing. I won't watch a commercial at all; flip right over to something else. It drives Bill so nuts that, half the time, we watch in different rooms.
That's a really cute award you received!!

I love learning things about my fellow bloggers! I think you and I must be opposites though when it comes to shopping! I love shoes and shoe shopping. And although I love furniture, I get incredibly stressed out when it comes to furniture shopping!
