I got tagged by a chirpy paaro. :)

I am supposed to list 6 unspectacular quirks. Here goes

1) When I get really overwhelmed by emotion, I have been known to faint. :)

2) I talk to myself aloud.

3) I get this great feeling of accomplishment when I beat others to reach a spot when we're all walking in a group to get someplace, or crossing the road...or taking a bus. (must get that window seat!) Most of the times nobody else is even aware that there is a competition of sorts going on, until I scream out "First!".

4) If I start eating a bar of chocolate I have to finish it. Never heard of saving some for later.

5) I am extremely giggly. And loudly so.

6) I have to fold and put away laundry as SOON as it comes out of the dryer. I hate doing laundry.

Bonus 7) I am extremely argumentative. Most times I persist just to stretch the debate, and its largely sprinkled with a healthy dose of (my quirky) humour. If the other person doesn't see the fun in it, it gets pointless.

Thanks chirpy paaro, for tagging me. (Nobody does, these days..(sad sigh) ;) ) I tag anyone who wants to take this up, its been going around for a while.

Nice, although I wouldn't count any of these as quirks. They appear normal.

To prove it to you, I shall self-tag maybe your jaws will drop out of shock reading mine.

waiting for your list.

On the opposite end when it comes to chocolate! :) You just inspired me to add to my post.

I think you deserve merit for #6. My clothes lie at the foot of the dryer until the nearest weekend.

"giggly????????????? i am relieved to hear that."

hi thanatos,
ah, you cannot do that in a public laundromat, now...:)

I have never fainted, i do want to experience it once. only. and there should be somebody to hold and not let me fall thud.
when you talk to yourself aloud, is it also accompanied by expressions and hand gestures et al. just curious!
