Tagged- 6 unspectacular quirks

I have been tagged by Bumight. The tagging bug seems to have infected a LOT of people in blogville. I thot i escaped it.

i. link the person(s) who tagged you...
ii. mention the rules in your blog
iii. tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours...
iv. tag 6 following bloggers by linking them
v. leave comment on each of the tagged blogger's blogs letting them know they've been tagged...

6 unspectacular quirks? What??!! Everything about me is spectacular....... Whatchu' talking about? Well, i'll try to see if i can dig something unspectacular up, it's going to be hard but i'll try cos i love u guys.

  1. I hate crowds. Large space, small space, as long as there's too many pple in a place, i'm uncomfortable. I have been known to not get on a crowded train regardless of how long i have to wait for the next train. I am nothingphobic. I just don't like crowds.
  2. Having my body itch is the most disgusting thing to me. I feel dirty whenever my body itches. I guess it's because when i was little, whenever i would scratch my body my mom would tell me to go take a shower.
  3. I have 2 personalities and i don't do it on purpose. At home, i am as goofy as can be. Once i step out the house, it's a different story. EVERYONE meeting me for the first time assumes i'm quiet. I actually look quiet. Until i get comfortable around them, then they start to wonder if i was the same person they originally met.
  4. I would rather read a book than watch TV. I absolutely refused to see any of the Harry Potter movies. I didn't want it messing with my imagination. I've probably read over a thousand books (not an exaggeration). My favorite fantasy when i was a teenager was to be locked in a room full of books, with just food, water and a toilet for a week.
  5. I used to love to talk on the phone. I have spent 6hrs on the phone at a stretch on numerous occasion. In fact i spent the last 3yrs of my life constantly on the phone. Now, i can't stand talking on the phone. I don't even want to hear my phone ring. My phone has been on vibrate since february.
  6. I am allergic to Eba (garri). I get boils, start sneezing, and have serious mucus coming out my eyes whenever i eat it. I can only remember eating it twice, once when i was 9 and i told my mom she didn't know what she was talking about and the other time in boarding school when i was seriously hungry. It wasn't a good look. My paternal grandmother reacts the same way so i guess it's genetic.
I tag notperfectdotcom, goodnaijagirl, soupasexy, nigerican, dejanae, and skinnychic


  1. We have so much in common from this little meme!!

    I won award upon award for being the best behaved in everything I was in from when I was little. EVERYONE thought I was quite and serene. if only they knew. I'm as goofy as they come when I get comfy arond you. At work, I've been referred to has being "professional and confident" when I'm soooooo far from it. Even my BF wonders sometimes where that "sophisticated gal" he initially met went. lol poor guy. He's in love now so it's too late for him to bounce.
    And I'm so with you on the Harry Potter movies, but I couldn't help myself. I still watch them. I feel the same way about the Lord of the Rings movie. My fav book of all times is Pride and Prejudice and when the Keira Knightly version came out, I swear, I got half way through before I got up and left the theater. I don't think the writers read the dadgum book!!! I too share your passion of reading. I love books!!

    Okay, you are the first Nigerian that I've heard that's allergic to (gasp)food!!!!

    Thanks for the tag, I've done this particular tag before, so I'll just paste the link on where to read it.

    Also, congrats on the $2 raise, way to stand up for yourself.

  2. I don't like crowds too. And I hate those crowded owambe parties Naijas do.

    Sorry about your eba allergy o. I looove eba. Though I don't eat it often, it's the only food I'll eat cold, with hot egusi, spinach or ewedu stew.

  3. i feel u on the books and 2 personalities thing

    i did this bootleg tag twice already but i guess i could come up with more crap
    ill put it up this weekend

  4. awww, u poor thing cant eat u eat poundo tho..pele dear. i also put down my quirks.

  5. noooooooooooo... i was escapeing the bug too , until u had to go and bite me. I'm going to bake u a garri cake for that lol. Me and my siblings actually tried to do that, its not like we like eba or anything, we just thot it would taste better with iceing... guess we were deade wrong lol. I'll do the meme in a couple of days lol. Ciao hun

  6. Re: Crowds. So do you go clubbing/parties?

    Re: Eba. Can you eat Iyan, pounded yam, fufu?

  7. never heard of anyone allergic to eba b4. wow. that means u can't eat any cassava product?

  8. @original mgeke: I would go for a small house party, but i generally don't go to parties and i've never being to a club. I can't imagine myself in a club with all the people in my personal space.

    I can eat other cassava products, but Eba just gives me boils and what not. My nurse in boarding school said she has seen a couple of people who are allergic to Eba, so i stopped feeling like a freak after that.

  9. how did i miss this?
    so u're a social coconut too ehn? LOL!
