10 on Tuesday / Superstitions

10 Superstitions, Traditions, and/or Personality Quirks

1. If a black cat crosses the road in front of me, I still "X" it out.

2. Growing up, I was not allowed fish in the house (even goldfish), because a house with live fish in it is a house with no money.

3. Also, we were not allowed to play games with dice, because that was causing the family finances to be gambled away. Bullcrap. huh?

4. I still won't walk across a grave at the cemetary.

5. I do not walk under ladders.

6. Little noises make me crazy. Like a clock ticking, water dripping, stuff like that.

7. I don't like for my food to touch each other on my plate. Weird I know, but I've always been that way.

8. I am an obsessive list maker. I have a list for almost everything.

9. I do not like paper napkins. I would rather use a cloth napkin anytime.

10. If I see a picture hanging crooked, I have to straighten it. No matter where I am.

Geez, I didn't realize how weird I was until I did this, lol. I even asked hubby to help me come up with some and he thought of about 10 more. Oh well, that's who I am I guess, a weirdo!

Very interesting list. I like cloth napkins and always have to have a cloth table cloth (no plastic one for this girl!)

Not playing, but wanted to comment. Well, I don't think you are any more weird than anyone else. We all have our little quirks. You just admitted yours, most don't. Hope all is well. :)

I had forgotten about "x"ing out a black cat and I also don't walk across a grave.

Great Ten on Tuesday post!

Hi, Sandy! Thanks for stopping by my Ten on Tuesday. I'm with you on #8 and #10. Also, I LOVE your Tinkerbell picture. :P

My stepdaughter doesn't want her food to touch either. I can understand some but not others--like, why is having a fish in the house a sign you've got no money? Interesting!

I too have to straighten pictures.
I can't sleep without a ticking clock though! ;0)
