    Default Most unusual--What's your quirky little pleasure?

    Before we go any further, the title says 'quirky', okay?

    Inspired by Koko's 'best of' thread, what are the quirky little things that you like that people probably don't know about you? What's the odd CD in your collection that you really love, or the unusual book, or movie or ... well, just about anything?

    Well I have an unusal thing but not of me;

    My 4 year old daughter Jessica has a 'unusual' taste in music from the typical 4 year old girl.

    She loves heavy rock type stuff e.g Marilyn Manson, NIN, Murder Dolls, Primal Scream- you get the idea. She does like the usual tweenies and other CBeebies music but if you ask what her favourite music is the answer is always Marilyn Manson.

    I kept my dad's soundtrack for Fiddler on the Roof, and listen to it now and then. It reminds me of him, and how much he enjoyed that movie.

    Before anyone types anymore, I feel compelled to point out that the line between having a quirk and being a crank is very fine indeed.....

    What, are you implying that Fiddler on the Roof is beyond quirky? I forgot to mention my interest in botanical toxins, didn't I?
