Quirky -- Thurs., Apr. 19

Ingram, Texas:
I was in a quagmire over how quickly I could conjure up a word for the Q challenge today. I settled on "quirky."

Quirky, that's me. The quintessential eclectic [definition: not following any one system, as of philosophy, etc., but selecting and using what are considered the best elements of all systems], quiet, but sometimes silly, woman.

Music tastes range from classical to Broadway scores, to Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians, the Stray Cats, Billy Squier, Enya, Rolling Stones, Jem, Kelly Clarkson, Queen, Beatles, Moody Blues, Jimmy Buffett, ELP, Asia, Maroon 5, Train, and many more.

For movies, I'm happy with The Princess Bride, Galaxy Quest, Fifth Element, V for Vendetta, James Bond movies (especially starring Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan or Daniel Craig), Up, Edward Scissorhands, Young Frankenstein, What's Up Doc, Mission Impossible movies with Tom Cruise, Sound of Music, The King's Speech, Dangerous Beauty, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, Hunger Games, Good Will Hunting, The Bourne movies with Matt Damon, Juno, and some that aren't coming to me at the moment.

Qualities: People who don't know me well think of me as quiet, but that's because I'm assessing situations I'm in, like a cat sniffing out all the nooks and crannies of a new location. Once I get to know you, you'll find a pun-loving, sassy-talking, sometimes irreverent rebel. 

Now you know, if you care.


  1. I love all the Q's - very creative. I see lots of favorites in the movie list too..."I do not think that words what you think it means." Bonne chance A to Z-ing!

  2. I could have written almost ths exact post. We like a lot of the same books and movies. Unfortunately I STILL have not read The Girls with the Dragon Tatoo or the Hunger Games trilogy.

    New follower here. I’m enjoying reading my fellow “A to Z”ers. I look forward to visiting again.


  3. Just found your blog! Can't wait to read more! I just started blogging myself.

  4. Quirky is just the thing. I also like a lot of the same books and movies. Looking forward to meeting you at the rally!

  5. Sounds like the two of us would get along just fine. :)
