Tagged: The 6 Quirk Disease



So finally, it's a tag that forces me to reveal things about myself... Something I would not normally do on my blog... but here goes anyway. Thanks to the taggers, and I pity the taggee's (credit for that goes to great inventor of insane words... againstthegrain)

And I was originally tagged by QuarterPastSeven... There, I think that's about all the acknowledging I have to do... I thought double tagging was againsttherules? :)

'Rules help control the fun!', so I do have to mention them:
These are the rules:

1. Link to the person(s) who tagged you

2. Mention these rules on your blog

3. List 6 unspectacular quirks of yours…

4. Tag 6 bloggers by linking to them…

5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged Blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged…

Quirks!! All the stuff you can torture me about :P

1) I like to AirSing, i.e. mouth the words of a song when I'm listening to it on my phone/mp3. You will not hear a word from my mouth, but if you're a lipreader, you'd get a real treat :) I'll do this everywhere... from the tube, to on buses to while walking down the street... I will however, never do this when with someone I know. And then there's AirGuitaring, which I hardly need explain. And I have no idea how to play a real guitar, by the way... I just put on a real good show :) holding all the right cords and concentrating intensely on my hand movements... Sometimes I AirDrum, but it's really hard to do that while walking and not look like a retard...

2) I have an obsession for organisation. Everything has its place in my room, and some of it is just not practical. Everything MUST be arranged in lines, squares, rectangles and rhombuses. Never circles, in case you were wondering. My table HAS to be clean all the time, and I will try to organize the most impossible things. Including friend's computers... I'm sure some of you are familiar with my whining about YOUR computer :) And I will kill you if you touch my stuff... I will... Don't disturb the fighter wing formation on my desk... you risk having your eyes gouged out..

3) I have an aversion to incorrect spelling and grammar, and I cannot stand "lol"... And when I say I can't stand "lol", I mean I can't stand "Rotfl", "Rofl", "Lmao", "AFAIK" and tons of other 'forumspeak'. It is not a language, get it out of my face. This has direct tie ins to 'organisation'. I also cannot get my head around using "Wicked" to denote something that is, in fact, excellent... Maybe I'm just too last century...

4) Any girl that walks with me must always walk on the 'safe' side of the pavement, or should always sit on the 'safe' side of the rick. I will insist on walking/riding in this way, and no other way, and I will like you much less if you make a big deal about it. The safe side is the inside (away from the road), and I've always had this obsession.

5) I am guilty of sometimes listening (and singing along) to the Backstreet Boys, Bryan Adams, Hilary Duff and Westlife. I'm sorry, but their music is addictive. And don't you dare 'diss' Hilary Duff... I'm absolutely in love with her, and have been for a very long time (although I liked her better when she was fat and had blonde hair). Oh, and add Ricky Martin to that list... I found this old CD called "Ricky Martin 99", and throw it on from time to time... LIVIN' LA VIDA LOCA!! :P okay, sorry... I also have obsessions with ABBA, The Carpenters and The Beatles, but those are still considered normal (right?)

6) I am in love with aircraft... While others are excitedly talking about hand crafted engines on the new Ferrari whatever three hundred and whatnot... I'm talking about the Pratt and Whitney F100... And when you say Rolls-Royce, my mind first connects to aircraft engine manufacture and then moves on to the car manufacture if that is not what you are talking about... I don't know crap about cars or bikes, and I look really stupid and 'uncool' when someone is talking about them... but I can just throw STOVL at them and they won't know what to make of it :)


So that's it... That's some stuff about me that is probably exclusive to me... I think that makes them quirks... So anyway... who do I tag? who do I tag? :) I tag:

1) Maliha
2) Half Truths and Fictions
3) Arielle/Becoming
4) Lalaine/Relativity
5) Confused College Girl
6) Elise

Arr... Get quirking and tagging...

Haha, I'll do it but gimme a bit...I have to think of six. >.<

Lala said... 31 May 2008 at 02:24  

Hmm...do I even have six people?
Ehh...maybe I'll split this up between Lalaine and Milana [haha].
--I refrained from using 'lol'.
=O! I could also force people I know to make blogs, and then I'd tag them if I can't think of others.

Bhaha. I didn't realize you were tagged until I tagged you and came to your page! Terrible me. Againsttherules, love it.

Airsinging! hehehe. You could like make your own air band, air guitar, air vocals. I think its gonna be a huge hit! And I completely agree with number 3! Hahaha is so much better then lol. Though i prefer BAHAHA.

And aww to the girl thing. Thats adorable. We all know we'd be on the safe side with you! Pun intended? Get it, get it?
I kind of have something like that..where i like to be on people right side if we're walking together. I dunno what it is..but ..the left side of them feels weird.

Okay I did one. Too bad I have no one else to tag. :(

you just gave me an excuse to put up a new post :P hehe.

#1 - i saw a travel show on discovery travel and living that featured a contest somewhere in australia (i think ^^;) for airguitaring... you might wanna check that out :D i've seen a few people doing the airsing thing in public transport, and i do that myself sometimes, although it does feel weird when i'm singing without any sound... ^^

#3 - i have this too, although my preoccupation is with incorrect usage of real (english) words... i have a tendency to correct people mid-sentence, and i know it's really annoying but sometimes i can't help myself XP i'm more tolerant of forum/text speak, which i consider to be convenient slang. ^^; (zounds! there exists a more zealous grammar nazi than i XP nyahaha)

#4 - i have a friend who also feels this way... anyway, i think it's a gentlemanly thing to do :) although obsessing about it is a little creepy...

#5 - i have another friend who'll agree with you on westlife :) i don't listen to them, though i know their songs. i don't listen to hilary duff either...she did look better when she was still chubby...nowadays she just looks too thin ^^; and yeah, ricky martin rocks. :D i'm biased 'cause i'm female though... XP seriously, he has an awesome voice, especially when he sings in spanish. does he have any spanish songs in that album? :) have you heard his version (in spanish) of hercules' song, from hercules the disney movie? i think the title was go the distance. you might wanna check it out, it's great :)

oops, looks like i made this comment way too long ^^; hehehe.

I airsing all the time. When I am driving to work and listening to my I-pod, its airsinging all the way. My ex hated the airsinging thing but I love it. The only problem I have is watching other people airsing.

I love lol and other sms lingos...

Am a huge fan of ricky martin as well. I love livin la vida loca!

I'm pretty excited that you tagged me. I don't know 6 people to tag though... I'm with Arielle on that one. Hmmm.

And by the way-- I'm a psycho organizer too. You're not alone on that one. You'd probably never guess it though from my sloppy blogging... :)

Akshay said... 2 June 2008 at 22:24  

When I am in the car I make weird faces and sing along the songs aloud....some people even stare at me because i am pretty sure I look like a drunk freak...

There was a girl in our college who used "lol" a lot.... we fun-named her "lol-ita".....

Arielle said... 2 June 2008 at 23:37  

You have a facebook?

Add me and I'll post random things on your wall and make you feel important! :P

Elise said... 3 June 2008 at 15:02  

You are a true gentleman! Keeping your girls safe huh?

I air sing too. I've been told I ruin songs when I actually sing so I mouth the words.

I'll try and do this at some point xx

tina said... 8 June 2008 at 18:36
