Elizabeth tagged me for a meme — one that’s not actually that easy to answer! Here goes:


Pronunciation Key n. pl. id· i·o·syn·cra·sies -A structural or behavioral characteristic peculiar to an individual or group.

Write down five of your own personal idiosyncracies.
Then, if you wish, tag five people from your live gerbil or friendslist to do the same.

1. I’m very particular about what cutlery I use — we have an assortment of cutlery, and there are spoons I will not use because they feel wrong — I’ll do dishes rather than use the wrong spoon or fork.
2. I feel very strange if I leave the house without earrings — even if I’m just going to the corner store. I feel no need to dress up in any other way, I just feel odd without earrings on.
3. I’ll always leave the food I like the best until last — or at least leave a bite or two of it to the end, so that I finish with it. When I’m eating sushi, it’s always a struggle to decide whether to have the salmon sushi or a California roll last.
4. I can perform almost any activity while reading a book. Not every activity — really, people! But from brushing my teeth to getting dressed to eating breakfast to walking to school, I can go through an awful lot of the day with a book in my hand. And I haven’t even been hit by a car while crossing the street reading… yet.
5. I sneeze when I chop onions — as well as cry. Every time.

Man, that was even harder than I thought it would be! I think I’ll only inflict this on a couple of people — and of course, you’re welcome to ignore the tag! But I’d like to see what Kathleen, Dani, and Laura have to say for themselves, if they feel like it.

Well done! It was a hard one - if you remember I failed miserably…tho’ your comment about the earrings hit home. I don’t feel dreesed without earrings.

It IS harder than it looks, isn’t it? I thought so, too. I’m glad there are only 5! Well done.
