I personally never think quirks are boring, but I've tried to come up with some that involve fairly mundane things, anyway.
1. I absolutely cannot stand peaches. Even when I was a baby I wouldn't touch them, and the smell makes me gag. (This is true more of canned peaches than fresh ones, though I won't eat those either.) This is the only food I am completely averse to purely for flavor reasons (as opposed to indigestion, ethics, etc.) According to my mom she ate tons and tons of peaches when she was pregnant with me. I don't know if there's any connection there, but it's interesting to think about.
2. I'm fascinated by people's living spaces. I particularly love seeing the rooms and apartments of people around my age, since their interests are often prominently displayed through posters, CDs and DVDs in plain view, etc. I like to see how people organize (or don't organize) their belongings, how they arrange their furniture, what sorts of things they own, and so on. I think you can tell a lot about a person by their living space and what kind of stuff they keep in it.
3. I've always loved small spaces. When I was a kid I used to play with my dolls in my grandma's closet, and I always wished I had an attic bedroom or even one of those Dutch cupboard beds. I think it'd be neat to go to Japan and stay in a capsule hotel. My house has an attic that we've never explored because it's basically just a crawlspace with no floor and there's no ladder, but I occasionally have dreams that there's a whole second floor up there we just haven't discovered, full of neat old furniture and unopened trunks and the like.
4. I absolutely love that overwhelming lumber smell you get when you walk into Home Depot. My grandfather and my dad used to do a lot of building projects around our property when I was very little, so I think there's a nostalgia element there. It smells very familiar and exciting to me.
5. I hate the color blue. I like off-shades of blue, like aqua and indigo. But pure blue just looks garish and ugly to me. To me it seems overused, and is like a default color that's waiting to be turned into something else. The page I am writing this on has a lot of blue on it, and it's making me edgy.
6. I can't sleep without music on. If for some reason it goes off during the night, I wake up immediately. I have two Pandora stations devoted entirely to music that helps me sleep (mostly stuff like Enya, George Winston, Libera, etc.) When I stay at other people's houses I have to play my iPod until I'm almost asleep and then turn it off, and then I don't sleep well because it wasn't on all night.
And I tag... anyone who wants to do it! :)
