Quirky Me

Prats has tagged me to list six of my non-important things/habits/quirks .. I made a post sometime back on seven weird things about me ... that sounds so much like the current one that Prats has tagged me to do.. However, I am gonna oblige and try and come up with six vague things about me! The Junkie - I love the news.. when I go to the gym, all the time the news channel is blaring. I come back home and read the same on the internet. I have stopped buying the newspaper now.. but when I used to, I would then read the same news on the papers. And then see the analysis on television by people like Larry King and Glenn Beck. Lately I have been having less and less time for this though!
Soda and the iron box
- Being in the west and not a millionaire we have to iron our own clothes. Being a housewife, I take pity on DH and iron his clothes for him. But I am far from organized, I let the pile grow and grow before I get to the iron board. So a pile on one side, iron box in one hand and a can of soda on the other I attack the clothes. I have to drink soda when I iron... even when I have a bad cold. So rather than ditch the soda when I have a cold, I choose not to iron!

Smelly cat
- Every time my clothes are washed and dried.. be it on the clothes line as in India, or in the dryer as here,; I smell them. I love the smell of the crispness in them.. be it that of the sun or that of the bounce dryer sheets!
Rerun theater - I can watch reruns again and again. Of some movies I like and of the comedy series FRIENDS. If I haven't watched the CD for a while, its very likely that I have forgotten most of what happens in it! Thankfully DH shares this habit of watching reruns.. and we love to hoard DVDs for this very purpose.

Stifling Rules
- I dislike the rule book and encourage questioning the rules. Hence I will stop with 5 quirks {wink} {wink}.

There you go.. all done!! I am not gonna tag anybody this time (breaking one more rule).. but anyone who wishes to take it up is welcome to do so.

The soda and iron box is a good combo. Sounds like a good way to get the job done. Probably you would have the TV news running too??? Just kidding

Hey..Sorry about not letting you know about my completed tag...Problem no 1: I am SCATTERBRAIN and problem no 2: too frequent power cuts leave me stranded in the middle of a response and unfortunately blogger eats up my half finished message....see today, we had power cut from morning 10 till evening 6. I am gonna rally against the EB of chennai

"Being a housewife, I take pity on DH and iron his clothes for him."

I take a pity on myself for having to iron his clothes :( I wait till he has just a couple shirts left in the wardrobe and then get to it.
