Quirky Rachel

As I was sitting in my other night class, Psychology 1100-Human Development, my mind was wandering all over the place. Since there wasn't a Susie to distract me, I had to come up with something else. I started thinking of my quirks. At no surprise to me, the list started to grow. Here I am in all my glory.

-I put ketchup on lots of random items including: eggs, macaroni, ham, chicken, roast, turkey, steak, tacos, burritos, etc...
-If I like a movie I can watch it again and again. (I've lost track of how many times I have seen Anne of Green Gables, Nacho Libre, or Pride and Predjudice)
-If I come home to an empty house at night I look in every possible hiding place for a bad guy to be hiding....seriously
-I put pajamas on to get ready after I shower so that I don't sweat on my clothes.
-I am bad at staying in touch over the phone with friends. Thank heavens for blogs.
-I procrastinate, but end up doing my best work when under pressure.
-My arms have to be tucked in or wrapped around something for me to fall asleep.
-Thick, dark, cloudy skies make me happy, and I am even more ecstatic when lightning begins
-I love doing my laundry. (I do at least 2 loads per week, and for being single I think that is a lot)
-I love ice cream and would replace a meal for a shake.
-I make a weird face while applying makeup
-I look at people and want to fix their eyebrows, hair, and sometimes I go as far as wanting to dress them.
-I stress when my savings account drops below a certain point
-My toes are disgusting from running
-I am a night owl
-I get sidetracked easily (hence writing this list in Psych)
-I love 80s rock
-If I am around someone with an accent, I start talking like them
-I don't like listening to voicemails, but get frustrated when an unknown number calls and doesn't leave a message
-I need chapstick,my phone, and gum at all times. If I leave the house without one of these items it throws me off for the rest of the day.
-I have to be doing something with my hands to engage my mind. During conference I like to do a puzzle and during class I doodle and make lists all over my margins
-my left foot is a half of a size smaller than my right foot.
-I don't like to wear my hair down.
-I can't do anything in the morning unless my teeth are brushed.

I know there are more, but that is just what I came up with in 2 hours of class Tuesday night. Don't worry, Susie is developing into quite the gal. I will put a post up at the end of the semester and hopefully a picture too.

YOu do put on a funny face when applying make up. And as for wanting to give people makeovers, you're welcome to make me over anytime.

I wish I was close so you could dress me. I need a personal shopper--and of course could use the hair and eyebrows too. I love your quirks. Those are what makes you one of my most favorite people in the world!

Wow Rachel! I wouldn't touch all of that with a ten foot pole. But if any pre-med psych guys offer you advice, tell them no thanks, it runs in the family,& we survive quite well. I love you, G'ma N.
