The Muse’s Quirky Nature

Meredith at Daily Dose of Coffee tagged me and since I’m procrastinating like a little demon today at work I decided to post this up a mere few minutes after she tagged me!

Thanks for the tag love!

Here are the rules:

1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules in your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 random bloggers by linking them at the end of your post.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.
6. Once your post is up, notify the person who tagged you.

This could have the potential to become a bible as I’m a totally quirky person and my quirks know no bounds. Here goes…don’t get scared….

My food needs to be separated. What? What does that mean? It means I can’t have my salad in the same dish as meat, vegetables, etc…..I have to have things separate. My mum is fond of telling me how it all goes down the same way. What the hell ever Mum! I don’t care if it all goes down the same way or not I just want it separate. I don’t like my salad touching my meat and I don’t like my veggies touching my salad or my meat touching my veggies etc…etc….I’m normally the one sitting at the table with about 4 little plates surrounding my one main dinner plate and in the plates are various pieces of my dinner such as my veggies, salad, meat, etc….everything must be separate or I won’t eat it. I don’t want veggie juice on my meat thanks very much!

I’m ambidextrous. I can write with both my left and right hand but I favor certain hands for certain things. Example: I hold my fork or spoon in my left hand. I favor my right hand for writing notes, letters, etc…but I tend to do shorthand with my left hand. I’m also very uncomfortable using a rightie mouse blah! I use a left handed mouse on my Mac which is far more comfortable and I use a right handed mouse on my PC which totally throws me for a loop! I dunno. Total quirk there I guess.

My hair. That’s a quirk. Many people ask about my hair. Yes, I have hair. Amazing right? I have a big quirk with it. I absolutely have to have it shoved into a bun with a hairband holding it back when I am working. It’s absolutely necessary it’s out of my face, eyes and off my shoulders. I hate it flowing all over the place when I’m working! It’s just annoying. It’s very long and very wavy and I like it up and out of my way! My mum is fond of telling me well cut it off if you’re going to put it up all the time. NO! I like it long just not hanging out all over my face, eyes and mouth!

My books, cds, and any other form of hard media must be organized in alphabetical order.

I won’t eat cheese unless it’s melted.

When I’m on holiday, vacation, away, on a business trip, etc…etc…..I have to bring my own towels. All good Hitchhiker’s know that you shouldn’t go anywhere without a towel after all!

How about you?

Any quirks the Muse should know about?

Share ’em with me!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

  • the Muse

    damn them for tagging you before me!

    Damn them to hell!



  • MandyPandy

    Ah, Musey, my quirky little minx! I accept your challenge: we duel at dawn! *throws down gauntlet*

  • Meredith

    Girl, you are FAST! Thanks for playing along, and I ADORE the Hitchiker reference! One of my all time favs. I’m such a geek, I swear!

  • Taryn

    Muse, you sound like such an interesting person and a real character! I’d bet you’d be a blast to hang out with.

    I know I have a lot of quirks, but none are coming to me right now except two. Dog hairs are my nemesis. My dog goes through a heavy spring shed (and he’s short-haired) and having his hair on my clothes and socks is unacceptable. I am constantly sticky rolling myself and have the rollers all over the house. Not to mention the constant vacuuming, washing, etc., etc. To pet him, I have to roll up my sleeve and do it at arm’s length, yet he still tries to nuzzle into me, thus undoing all of my rolling. No more shedding dogs for me. I’m way too uptight.

    Secondly, I can strangely finish up a video game half asleep. I know this sounds nuts, but many times I’m nodding off in bed playing my PSP or DS but know I need to finish what I’m doing and save before I can fall asleep. Somehow I manage to do that because I wake up the next day and am like, “How did I get here? I don’t remember doing this!” while playing the game. It’s nuts!

    You should do more of these. It’s fun reading about peoples’ quirks!

  • (g)ezebel

    Oh my gosh dog hair is a quirk of mine too. Even though my guys are tiny they shed like a mother. So I am constantly rollering away 😉

    I’ve taken to not going anywhere near them in the AM as I hate going to work with a buncha pet hair on my clothes..kinda gross 😛

    holy shat that’s very strange. I need full concentration when gaming! half asleep? Won’t cut it here 😉

    You’re a genius lmao!

    I always get scared to post pieces of my life on here as I don’t want to bore anyone to tears 🙂

  • the Muse

    hey gez!

    LOL! I can’t stand to have my foods touch 😉 Totally grosses me out!

    You’ve no idea what a strange little person I am hehehe!

  • the Muse

    hey askmewhats

    I’m always scared to do these as I don’t want to bore people with bits of my life 😉

    yay another person that hates their food touching 🙂 i’m not alone 😉

    I’m the same freaking way. Anytime I am doing stuff I need my hair outta my face! Drives me bonkers when it’s flowing!

  • the Muse

    hey nics!

    I’ll do more fotds with it flowing promise 😉

    LOL yes indeed 😉 I best start practicing mingling my food so I can more brit like 🙂

  • Sminkan

    The hair-thing I do understand. I have long hair and always plait it or wear it in a bun-like mess. But I never, ever let it “flow”. I hate that. And people tell me to cut it as well, but I can’t see the logic in that. How do I plait short hair or put it in a bun? It isn’t possible. I’d have to shave it of my head then…

  • the Muse

    I’m so happy when people say that Sminkan as I always get grief about my hair not being down enough!

    I always get people telling me if I don’t keep it down I should cut it and it angers me. Can’t I wear my hair the way I freaking want? lol!


  • Beauty Addict

    Hi Izzy, it’s so cool u can write with both hands..it’ll be useful for those intense lectures..switching sides constantly 😉

    Hmm..quirks..I have sinus and have flu easily so I use lotsa tissues regularly. Esp in the morning where my nose will be runny. I use tissues sparingly hence using and folding them til the end of neat little squares.

    My family and friends always find this funny and says that my mountain of discarded tissues looks like little germs boxes..haha


  • the Muse

    hey gracie!

    LOL kinda a freaky thing more than cool 😉

    But good idea. When one hand gets tired, use the other 🙂

    Oh funny story…I’m always leaving little squares of tissues around and my family/friends make fun of me too saying it’s a pile of germs hehe!


    We are the same in that!
