Follow My Book Blog Friday

Now for the Follow Fun!

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...

J.J.' Quirky Habits:

1. I read on my iPhone... While my perfectly good Kindle is sitting in arm's reach. My last three books were read entirely on my phone. I read at the airport, in the car, at the grocery store, on my couch. It drives my husband crazy.

2. I refuse to know how much I weigh. When I go to the doctor's and am *forced* to get one the scale, I close my eyes or turn around backward. Why ruin a perfectly good day with that information?

3. I'm an obsessive cleaner even though I hate it. I clean my house every weekend, top to bottom, and complain the whole time. (Ask my husband. He will confirm.) I have no idea why I do this.

4. I iron everything. Including jeans. Call it a fear of the inevitable wrinkle.

5. When I'm nervous, upset, bored, or just being me, I pull out my eyelashes. It's the number one habit I can't seem to break and actually has some long clinical name I can't pronounce or spell.

Happy Friday!

  1. I try to Iron as little as possible!


    Feel free to stop by my blog -

  2. Hopping by and now following, too! I also can't stop reading wherever I go - a book is *always* in my handbag :) I guess it's good I like big handbags lol.

    Take care & happy reading,

  3. 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!

    Follow me Back to my blog and see what quirks I’ve got –

    Here's my Follow Friday

  8. LOL at reading at your phone, even though you have a Kindle. And the weight thing is actually smart. It's not a number you should look for, but what makes you happy. Oh, and of course is healthy..

    New follower! Great list. :) My quirky list can be found here!

  9. I used to have a friend who pulled out her eyelashes. It always made me cringe for the poor things lol. And hey, I saw that you listed Hot Fuzz in your movies. Nearly everything in that flick was laugh out loud funny, man! I loved the Bad Boys references :)
