Quirk, Quirk, Quirk

I was tagged to do the ‘Six quirky things’ post by ejura, onome , florida and wellsbaba (dunno if anyone else has tagged me on this).
I have been really busy(sure u guys are tired of hearing me say this,lol!) which is why the post is coming kinda late and then I had to look up the word ‘quirky’ on google just to properly understand what it was I was supposed to write on.
According to Wikipedia...

“A quirk is an odd habit”

So I got thinking…what are my odd habits?
I came up with a few.
(Am not going to bother with putting up the rules of this tag cos am sure you all know them by heart by now seeing as almost everyone in blogville has done the tag already)

Here are some of my odd habits.

1. I find that after eating certain foods that are not easily digested like meat. I keep bringing them up from my stomach into my mouth even hours after to chew them again (you know like goats do). Gross I know! It irks me too but I can’t help it. It’s been like that since I was a kid and my younger brother also has the same habit.

2. When I lie in bed relaxing especially when am in really deep thought, my hands always stray to ‘that place’ and its not what you are thinking, dirty minds,lol! I just like pulling ‘em hair strands,lol!

3. I HATE darkness. I HATE to wake up in the middle of the night to ‘no light’ so I always make sure I have some light on somehow. You know how PHCN is now, one can never trust them so I make sure I light a lantern on standby before I sleep so when the generator is put off by midnight, the lantern will provide some light.

4. I have a crazy imagination that is even crazier when everywhere is dark(maybe that’s why I hate darkness). Its like this, my room is dark, then I catch a glimpse of my hat hanging on the wall, I start thinking-that looks like a monster’s head. Next thing I start seeing a monster’s head for real. It’s really scary…I tell you.

Why am i writing about darkness too much? maybe cos i have been chatting with darkelcee,lol!

5. When I meet people, I don’t just look at their faces or their clothes. I have this odd habit of looking at the craziest things like their nose hair or their teeth colour or their fingers or the folds on the neck. Maybe it’s the Virgo in me, I don’t know o!

I had a number six o, but I cant remember it now and I have to be somewhere right away! I’ll be back to complete this meme later.

Hoewever I tag mommy, S.chic, Charizard, anonymous gal, today’s ranting and nikkisab to tell us six quirky things about them too.
