top 5 tuesday: quirks

I'm a quirky girl.

No, really. Full of quirks, I am. I like to think that most of them err on the side of endearing rather than annoying, but they exist nonetheless.

For today's Top 5 Tuesday post (whew, it's been awhile since I've done one of these!!) I'm sharing with y'all five of my weirdest quirks.

And yes, it was hard to narrow it down to just five.

//1. I absolutely detest touching cold, uncooked hot dogs. Well, okay, I know the hot dogs are cooked before they are packaged but when you just pull them out of the package and they are not very round and covered in hot dog "juice"...


//2. Color-organization calms my nerves. If you've ever had the chance to see my room, you'll notice many things are organized by color. Most notably, my books, jewelry, clothing and shoes are all arranged in color order. It just makes me happier that way. Organizing things by type or category is way more stressful than by color. Work with me, people.

My books...organized by color.

//3. I have a deathly fear of frogs and toads. Gag. Also, snakes too. When I took this photo (below) at my last job, I kind of was shaking the whole time.

Rough green snake shedding its' skin and a tree frog. Don't worry, no one was about to become lunch. ;)

//4. I don't like to mix food temperatures. Meaning, I don't like to have hot and cold things together and touching in my meal. They can be separate on my plate, but never touching. This is why I hate vegetables on my burger. Cold, slimy vegetables on a hot burger. Gross. Also, hot things on a salad. Like hot chicken strips on a cold salad. Eww. The only exception to this rule is a hot/cold dessert like a brownie sundae.

Because chocolate and ice cream trumps all quirkiness.

//5. I don't like feet. I never have. Don't get me wrong, I like MY feet. I take good care of my feet and a lot of pride in what they look like. But other people's feet totally gross me out. Like, for reals.

    I agree, I hate feet. I can't stand them, and definitely don't come near me with your bare feet!! I find the hot dog one funny and I've tried to color organize, but it's messed up in just a matter of days!
