6 Quirks!!!!!!

Di, my good friend, is fabulous but sometimes evil. Those who know me know I can't be dared or told to do something and NOT do it. So she dared to tag me, and I will dare to do it.
**Side note**I feel bad about delaying the posting for so long but life has been like a big bag of vomit and a hurricane. It's been SO crazy!! I am trying to get the house put together so there will be no pictures until I can get out of boxes. (Ah, the shame). But we're alive and happy!!

Quirk #1 - I have the most freaky feet ever known to exist. My left one is a huge size 9 1/2. My right one is a size 8. Not a lie. I would show a picture, but I'd hate for anyone to get sick or die. This makes shoe shopping the very most miserable thing in the ENTIRE world. I usually end up with the shoes the BIG foot sizes and I 'stuff' the other foot... kind of like I stuff my bra. I guess it's for this reason that I hate everybody else's feet. If you want to make me mad, show me your foot.

Quirk #2 - Jake and I make up our own words. It's shameful to say that I started this whole madness. This happens on many random occasions - usually when we're out driving. Our favorite words to date are 'Cheebers' and 'Heejos'. We use these words in about every conversation with each other. Example: "How are you today Jake?" -Ev
"I am feeling rather cheebers and pretty heejos. How are you Ev?" - Jake
"I am gassy." - Ev
If you can't understand us, please don't feel bad. We know.

Quirk #3 - I have an obsession with clean laundry, and especially with clean towels. Clean, laundry smelling towels make me feel classy. I LOVE to do laundry. If I am having a bad day, I will tear clothes off the rack that I haven't worn in awhile just so they can smell fresh. One of the most exciting things about moving into my new house is all the linen closets I can fill with clean towels for guests. (Please, come be my guest!) In heaven, I imagine I will be surrounded in fresh towels that I can roll around on and say 'Cheebers!'

Quirk #4 - I am both-handed. Smart people use the word ambi-dextrous, but I'm not one of those people. I mostly write with my left hand but switch hands for pretty much everything else. This came in handy when the right side of my body was all paralyzed. Yeah, it's pretty much the coolest thing ever to be able to spill food with BOTH hands.

Quirk #5 - I have dreams in Spanish. Most of you should know I am fluent in Spanish - grew up speaking it. And my job has made me use it daily, just to yell and make fun of people. I will wake myself up all the time screaming at the devil in Spanish. I wonder what this really means......

Quirk #6 - I can ride a bike with no handlebars.

Because I am such a sucker for getting 'tagged' I will just tag EVERYBODY.

Quirk #6 -

Your post made me feel all cheebers inside. I knew you would be a good one to tag! I believe you are the one with the bum obsession, but it could've rubbed off on me a little bit.

I never knew you were ambidextrous! I tried to make myself, but it never really worked. As for the cleanliness, I remember one time in Snow you had a really bad day and we all came home to a spotless kitchen!

Hey it's Josh and Terra said...

EVELYN!!! Don't worry, I love that you stalked me! AND I LOVE that you're living in Boise. Josh and I lived there for the first 4 months of our marriage and we LOVED it! There are so many fun things to do there and it's just good times. By the way, if you need a really good brother is there and he rocks! So thank you for stalking me and we will continue to be friends...wahew! Terra

Thanks for your comment about Newt, Ev. I'm still so scared and sad for him. As for your quirks, they ROCK! One of my feet is a half a size bigger than the other... and I thought I had it bad! I can't imagine a size-and-a-half!!! You rock (and I love you!)
