FUN MONDAY - QUIRKS



Lisa Marie wants to know what our quirks are. "Confess to one, confess to ten, you decide. Just come back Monday ready to spill the beans, the rest of the world may look at you like you are from Mars, but you‘re among friends here. We won’t laugh, in fact that eccentricity just may endear you to us more".


I didn't know at all the meaning of "quirk". I had never heard this word either and had to look it up in my dictionary and in Wikipedia. There I learned that"quirk arises from the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea, and that prior to the twentieth century, the most common variant for this “phylum” was Quark", and "Quark" I only know as white cheese.

So what ? I asked people around me about my "quirks" or manners. Apparently I have NONE. I don't pull at my hairs, don't bite my lips, don't bite my nails, don't get red in my face and I don't neigh like a horse when I laugh. I don't have any nervious twitch either. I don't munch when I eat or do other special noises. All in all I seem to be too normal and this is probably my quirk ! Don't think now I am the perfect woman, I have a lot of very bad habits which compensates the lack of quirks, unless a quirk is also to look every day several times for my glasses and car keys which I always put in the same place, only the places are different. In this case that would be my quirk !!

What a peculiar quirk you have my dear. There are so many places in one's living quarters that something can get lost. This is how I deal with lost items.

Mariposa said...

Thanks for the good laugh Gattina! I can resonate to your car keys and glasses in so many other ways!

Happy Monday!

Peter said...

Hi Gattina, I think you should have just forgotten the word Quirk and told us of your bad habits!!!!!!

Needing glasses to find my glasses sounds like one of my quirks!

Tracey_iPost said...

I usually look for my sun glasses when they are still propped up on my forehead! Ha!

Hootin' Anni said...

LOL....Gattina, I have to agree with Peter. You're so funny.

Melli said...

LOL! I don't think I'm too quirky either... but I bet if I asked my kids they'd come up with a million of them! I'll have to ask.

As long as you lose your keys before you lose you're glasses you might be okay. If I ever put my keys somewhere othere than their nesting place I am lost.

I do those things with the keys and my glasses and my cell phone. At least I can call the phone to find it. :)

Thanx for playing!

Tiggerlane said...

I had to google Quarks...b/c at one time, I actually knew what one was! You sound like the perfect friend!

Heather said...

I often lose my keys. I usually offer my kids a small sum of money to help me find them!

Jo Beaufoix said...

Hee hee, I need my contact lenses to find my contact lenses. :D

Anglophile Football Fanatic said...

I am always looking for my keys, and the are NEVER in the same place!

Irish Coffeehouse said...

I love your blog's design- very nice. :)

Admittedly, I do the same thing with my sunglasses, cell phone and keys. Ugh. It's a pain.

Alison said...

great cartoons!!! I love them!!

robinellablog said...

Key losing is a big problem in my world as well! Love those comics.

grace said...

you are perfect Gattina, I enjoyed reading your post. I did not know the meaning of quirk either, not a word I use

Nekked Lizard Lady said...

FINALLY! A quirkless wonder. Congratulations.

Molly said...

Good for you Gattina being quirkless. Would you like some of mine? I hardly ever lose my glasses because I always wear them. If I did lose my glasses, they would be hard to find because I could not see to find them. I rarely lose my keys because many years ago after the neighborhood hunted for my keys, a kind neighboe made me a special key hook.

After visiting around to all the other quirky people this Fun Monday, are you SURE you don't have one or two?

I found that almost every site had me nodding in agreement - it was something I did myself. All I could come up with on my own was sighing.
