The Letter "Q"

Quirks: They are what make people even more interesting. What's one of your quirks? I take Aquaphor (for my lips), Bath & Body Works White Tea & Ginger Body Cream, and light blue Extra gum everywhere. Oh, and I take socks with me most places I go too. After all, my feet get cold when I am curled up Indian-style at my desk or in a restaurant booth.

QT: The best gas station chain that I'm aware of. They have multiple kinds of ice, Coke and Pepsi, paper and plastic cups, cherry and vanilla syrup, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, bagels, lots of snacks, and clean restrooms. I haven't checked, but if QT also carries Fiji water, I may have to get a job there.

Quaker Oats: I love oatmeal--not just any oatmeal. I hate it if it's made with water; milk is essential. And so is maple syrup and brown sugar flavoring. During my senior year of college, I often ate four or five bowls a day--breakfast and lunch. Yummy.

Quotes: Love them! Here are two of my favorites: "There is no chance thing through which God cannot live without listening at all is to live deaf to the fullness of the music."

"...if you ever took truly to heart the ultimate goodness and joy of things, even at their bleakest, the need to praise someone or something for it would be so great that you might even have to go out & speak of it to the birds of the air."
-Frederick Buechner

Quilts, Q-tips, quiche (especially the one I occasionally make when in a domestic mood), queso dip, quaint places, queen-sized (or larger) beds, the word "quintessential," quadriceps (they make it possible for me to run & Q is just a tough letter), Q & A (so much easier when websites have the most common ones already listed), questions (I love questions, asking them and receiving them. Works out well with my line of work.), quitting time

Quiet: It's rarely ever quiet, but I cherish (relatively) quiet days.

Quality: Especially top quality people and sheets.

Quizzes: Yes, those silly ones for your myspace page that I just do for afternoon entertainment (and to determine my personality type, which Sex & the City character I am, etc.)

Work like you don't need money,
And dance like no one's watching."

How can you mention QT without mentioning their capachinos and taquitos? Have you tried their milkshakes?? :) I love QT!

e.b. said...

I have never been to a QT....

I do love the mention of q-tips - they are little pieces of cottony heaven.

"Quality: Especially top quality people and sheets. "

The combination of the two is even better! [Bad, dirty me...]

Jordan said...

I have never heard of QT.

My Q - Queen.. I love Queen... we are the chaaaaaaaaaampions, my friend. we'lllllllllllll go on fighting.. til the end...

Ally said...

Jordan: That's a classic.

AM: I expect nothing less:)

e.b.: And there are so many ways to use them!

Allen: I've not tried any of those three! Unfortunately I only get to visit QT when I'm north of here, but I'll add those to my list of things to try.

Trixie: I've never met anyone who hates buttons--very quirky:)I need to try Quaker Oat Squares.

FC&F: Do you have them in Tennessee too? I wasn't sure how big the chain is.

Quiet! That is my favorite one on the list.

I also have really cold feet. It's funny cuz I wear wool socks at home and I live in LA. I might take a cue from you and carry then with me. I love sitting Indian style too.

Kimberly said...

Impressive list! You did a great job on Q. I agree with everything except Quaker Oats.

brookem said...

I love oatmeal too! And quotes, and quizzes. What's your myspace page?

Can't remember QT in TN but when traveling I always pick them.

My quirk: I carry two sets of keys with me at all times. All the items I have, keys, money, wallet, etc have to go in the same pockets no matter the outfit. If I reach into a pocket and discover that my car keys aren't there, I FREAK OUT only to discover I erroneously placed them somewhere else.

Everyone's praising QT for everything in the store. How about CHEAP gas? Buying premium gasoline gets expensive. I bet Allen knows!

Oh, and put me down for Quaker Oats. I've been eating oatmeal (+milk) every morning for breakfast for a few years now. Sure, my coworkers have a lot of fun at my expense, but I don't care.
