Here’s a tip, when sharing your “odd” quirks with someone of the opposite sex, wait until your fifth or sixth evening out. I shared one of my quirks with someone and he had a look of pure “oh my god this girl might be a little crazy” on his face. Learned that the hard way.
Moving on. I do have a few odd quirks. I have little “routines” on how I eat food, order, etc. and I tend to get ready for work or to go out the same way because otherwise, I could forget one part of my beauty routine. This is pretty normal.
One of my quirks though that I’m finding is slightly unnormal is my love of…cardstock.
At the Chicago blogger hang, an off-the-cuff and out of context comment I made about business cards was tweeted, so, I decided to out myself on this love.
I love cardstock.
Which is kind of funny because I don’t really write letters, notes, etc. I’m very online-focused.
But a good, firm, thick piece of cardstock, maybe with a little glossy finish or *shudder* even a thread make me take notice. In fact, I may even keep that card specifically because I like the feel of it. Wait, that sounded a little gross.
Here is an example of my dream cardstock (from my favorite bar in Chicago)
Lately, I’ve been invited to a lot of weddings and bridal showers so I’m like a college girl on spring break in terms of excited by the cards filling my mailbox.
Yes, I realize how nerdy this makes me. And what’s worse, I can’t even describe the weight or finish that I like the most, I just know it when I touch it.
Yep, that sounded gross too.
What is your oddest quirk?
