Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Mmm. DrowseyMonkey ( wants me to post six quirky things about myself. I'm a pretty quirky person, so here goes:

1. I am a bit OCD about things matching. Even my undies have to be the right colour to match my outfit, though happily they can't be seen.
2. I think I deserve at least one treat a week to reward me for working hard. unfortunately, as I can't afford expensive things, I buy pleasing food treats, like cream cakes. I am therefore growing out of the clothes I treat myself to when I can afford them.
3. I count things. Steps especially. I can walk downstairs in the dark. It's a bit unfortunate when I forget I left something on the stairs...
4. I talk to myself and to the animals a lot. And I make what I say rhyme. I find it very satisfying.
5. I have several hundred books waiting to be read (too busy blogging to read them) but when I see another that I think might be good, I buy it and add it to the pile. The books on the bottom never get to the top.
6. I have a lot of umbrellas. I hate umbrellas. I go out without them even when rain is threatening, and when I get too wet I have to buy another one. Eventually I give the nicest ones away to my friend, who loves umbrellas.

Now I have to tag 6 of you (forgive me). Don't feel obliged.

Here are the Rules:
1. Link the person(s) who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

I never remember how to do links as I don't do them all that often, so I will just have to post the URLs of the people I've tagged.

Jazzy and Lozzie as 2)

lol ... thanks for playing along! :) You're a sport.

Those aren't so quirky. Well, except for the umbrella thing, that's odd. And maybe the rhyming thing too, LOL As long as you're happy. :)

Thanks for the tag! Unfortunately, I don't think I know six people who have a blog...and I don't know the address of one of them.

I'll do my best.

I hate umbrellas too.
Why do you think I moved to Greece?

I like things to match.

I often talk to myself and sometimes disagree.

I have a weakness for alliteration, Pauline's fault.

I have a lot of books but I've read most of them, some several times.

Counting things that is WEIRD!

Hey Val, I put a link on my blog like you said and it worked. I also put one on Diane's. I don't know anymore. I don't know how to tag, or what it means anyway. Love you slide show great big beautiful pictures.

Personally I don't think you're that quirky LOL

I count stairs all the time,and sometimes even count how many steps it takes to get from one place to another.Hate umbrellas too...which is why I only buy coats with hoods :-)

Ha ha, very funny, cathy. I may need to get out more, it's just that my friends think blogging is weird.

Hold on a sec, I just remembered someone's blog...

Cute! I also talk to myself and my pets but I am nowhere near creative enough to make anything rhyme! And I also don't use umbrellas. Really, all they do is keep your head dry. The rest of you gets soaked anyway!.

Up here in the Pacific NW, an umbrella is a sign of 2 things: weakness or tourist. lol

Thanks for tagging me. I did my quirks. They are kind of mundane. Brian would have been a good source to ask for my quirks!
