My First Tag: Six Quirks

I have been tagged by the lovely enc at Observation Mode! I was very excited, since it was my first ever tag, and for that reason I have been bugging people all day, asking them what they thought my quirks were. I'm not sure I'm very quirky at all, judging by their responses, but here's what I could come up with...

1. I don't have a middle name. Perhaps not so quirky in itself, but I have a huge problem with this fact and is in fact a great source of animosity between me and my parents. My whole life I have been trying to think of a suitable middle name to give myself, although so far nothing seems right.

2. As much as possible, I always the same film twice in a row. In the case of Atonement, I actually did watch the film through once, and then went right back to the beginning, but mostly I give it a couple of days.

3. I used to be a hugely fussy eater. Not so much now, but I still hate butter, and most sandwich sauces. Not very interesting I know...

4. I have alphabetised every single book in my house. I've also categorised them.

5. If I could only bring one thing with me to a desert island, it would have to be Vaseline or some form of lip moisturiser.

6. I have never shaved in my life. But don't worry, I'm not some hairy freak - I use other methods. OK, too much information... what can I say, I'm out of quirks?

Right I think I have sufficiently demonstrated exactly how boring I am... that took me forever. I bet I'll think of something incredibly interesting as soon as I click 'publish post'.

I've always wondered who starts off tags... I have some cool ideas for 'tags' but I'm not sure if some higher being is supposed to start them off or what. It's like God and the universe I suppose, only on a smaller scale.

Anyway, I think I'm supposed to tag three people but I have no idea who hasn't been tagged yet, so if you want to be tagged, just let me know and I'll tag you! Sorry if that's cheating.


  1. I don't have a middle name either. People used to accuse me of lying about that to hide a really ugly name. WTF! People are idiots.

  2. it's amazing you can organize your books like that. i've tried and failed so many times :-)



  3. Wow Wendy, no middle name suddenly feels so much cooler!

  4. I am an obsessive organizer as well, especially with my books!

  5. Great quirks and I think you can start a tag anytime you want. I know another blogger who did, and they were a very new blogger. As long as it's good no one will mind! Ha, pressure's on!

  6. I always wanted to swap out my first name for my middle one:)

  7. Most sandwich sauces are insufferable.

    My middle name is "Neville." How do you like that——a male name for a girl. I like it. But I took a lot of heck for it when I was a kid.

    I think you can start your own tag. Why wait?

  8. BTW: Thanks for the plug, and I think WendyB is really hiding the fact that her middle name is Grizelda. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
