Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday (4)

 Book Blogger Hop is a meme created by Crazy for Books. This Book Party was created to connect book blogger, book lovers, and book friends. Enjoy!

 "If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?"
 
My immediate thought is Alice in Wonderland. I have loved this story for years and years and also love the all the movies about Wonderland. The interesting chaos calls to me! My favorite part in the movie is the talking flowers.
 






Follow my Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee.

 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 am crazy about the organization of my cupboards, drawers, or anything else in my house. If it is messy and I made it that way, it is totally ok! If someone else made it that way, like my hubby..., it drives me crazy and I have to move it. My hubby gets out of washing dishes a lot because of this compulsion of mine. Darn you OCD!

2. I always have a book with me. And I am not only saying this for the sake of my blog. Seriously! When I go to B&N, I have to leave my purse (suitcase really) in the car because it is so heavy with books and other random things. So addicted.

3. I have a thing with counting and reading everything. If I see a sign, I have to read it. If I miss it, I have to go back and read it again. I count steps, stairs, pictures, you name it. Not debilitating thought. Totally learned to deal with it. Haha

4. I touch everything, especially the things with signs yelling at me not to. I like to feel the textures of the world on my finger tips. If I own it, I have to rub it on my lips.

5. I have odd sorts of names that I give the children at work and my cat Aracos. Things like Bean, Bubba, Buggy, Blubba... hmm, guess I have a thing for nicknames starting with "b". Even if I have just made up that name, the child I am calling it by always seems to know I am talking to them.

So, there are my strange and a tad odd quirks. Guess they are just a few things that make me Me.

I found your blog via Follow-Friday and I'm following you now.

I also almost always have a book with me (you never know when you might need it!). I've been a bit more lax about it lately as I've taken to knitting and keep a project in my purse.

Happy Friday! I hope you have a great weekend.

I totally knew someone that had issues with touching things! He even touched the David statue at the Louvre! Did I mention this was a chaperone, and not a rebellious teenager? ha!

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!

Hello!
Like to randomly name inanimate objects weird names. I don't know why but it just pops into my head whenever we get a new appliance.
~Happy Reading!~
