Follow Me Friday (3)

Follow Me Friday is a Weekly Meme hosted by Parajunkee. Every Friday bloggers participate to answer a specific question and spread the love!

Q. It's circle time. Time for us to open up and share. Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...

1. I don't like babies. I know that that's akin to being virtually inhumane, but I don't. And I'm not sorry for it. They freak me out with their disproportionate body parts (i.e. large heads and large eyes). Strangely, I love toddlers ...

2. I'm addicted to Asian music. And Celtic music. And Reggae music. And the soundtracks of any film/show in existence. And Italian opera sung by Korean singers. Case in point, my newest obsession:

And just a couple of months ago, I couldn't stop listening to jazz.

3. Like a lot of bloggers it seems, I suffers from insomnia. Usually to get to sleep, I have to play solitaire and read some random trivia (I have mild case of OCD) and listen to "A Year of Love" which is by a singer whom I worship. But at the same time, I don't really mind it. I love staying up at night and then walking around in the very early morning. I have done so many times and the experience is honestly one of kind. I am seriously considering turning nocturnal.

4.I read really fast. When I first received Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, (I wasn't aware) my sister timed me and I finished in 2 hours and thirty seven minutes. One of my many nicknames in the family is Spongebob.

5. I've always had a very strict schedule for Saturdays. Nowadays, I wake up at around 11:00, drive around until 12:55 and then return to my television to alternate between watching cooking shows on PBS (a television station which I've been faithful to since first exposure to Arthur) and writing.



  1. I would love to see you post some of the music you listen to. I am trying to branch out into better music then just the top 40!

  2. I can definitely help you with that! :)

  3. I love Arthur! If I see it on, I will still watch it. ^_^ Here's my FF: http://thoughtsatoneinthemorning.blogspot.com/2011/05/book-blogger-hop-1-follow-friday-4-in.html

  4. This is a fun question. I’m learning so much about everybody and I don’t think most of us are as quirky as we think we are.

    My quirks seem normal enough. As I wrote them I woke up to the fact a lot of my quirks create inner conflicts. I’ve got a lot to think about!

  5. I'm enjoying learning about others as well! I also agree that my quirks seem all so strangely normal when I look at them twice.

  6. Hopping through. What's your favorite PBS cooking show?

  7. Wow, you do read fast. I think I did but you beat me! Hi! Just stopping by. Following you from the Feature and Follow Friday blog hop (finishing from last night!). Would love a follow back: blog.writerslairbooks.com. I also have twitter: @wlbks. Have a 'good read' weekend!

  8. My favorite cooking show would have to be "Vine Talk" but that's not really a cooking show, so I'd have to say maybe Rachel Allen? Her recipes are super simple. :)

    Thank you! I try to pace myself but good books make it hard to stop.
