Sorry to disappoint you but the answer is - not really.

Earth orbits the sun in an anti(counter) clockwise direction like all the other major planets (except Venus which is unusual in several ways) and the eccentricity of its orbit (deviation from a perfect circle) is only 0.0167 so I'm afraid in this respect the Earth is very unremarkable.
