Tagged, tagged…I’ve been tagged.

 

A. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.

B. Tag seven people to do the same.

C. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it".

 

 Is it cheating if my list consists of things that everyone else has already mentioned?

(I LOVE it when people call me, but it takes a lot of effort for me to call people. Somehow I always think that they don’t really want to talk to me and that I will be interrupting. Lame …I know.)

*Feels the heavy weight of judging eyes*

Fine, fine…I will add and elaborate….

 I’m a Perfectionist: Yes – I’m one of those people that will not/cannot rest until fully satisfied with whatever it is I’m doing. I have been known to set up way too high standards for myself and then overstress about it to the point of counter-productiveness. Counter-productive because I end up with half way done projects that I cannot finish as I keep thinking that I can do better, so I delay…and delay…and delay. This one day will prove to be my Waterloo…

I hate my feet: I find my feet to be weird and I cannot stand the sight of them! I By default, I hate having to wear sandals! I do, I hate it with a passion! Who the hell invented sandals? You walk around and everything gets in there, your feet get all dirty, and they are all…exposed and vulnerable….Seriously, why wear sandals????

Someone once called me as a “Hyper-reflective introvert”: I thought it was weird at that time. I guess this is mostly because I’m really shy around people that I don’t know/or just met. My shyness makes quite difficult to engage on ordinary chit-chat. I admire people who can just jump in there and create engaging conversations out of thin air. I fail epically!  However, the friends I do have will tell you that once I get to know you – you will not be able to SHUT ME UP!

 I’m slightly OCD: It’s true. I like things on my desk to be in right angles. I hate messiness. Papers have to be stapled the same way; labels have to be placed in the right corners and the same margins; work documents must be typed in Arial 11 (just so you know I got a tattoo on my wrist that I had to make a stencil for just to make sure the font was Arial – I wasn’t sure I could trust the tattoo guy.) *LOL*

I like lists:  Each day I make a list of things I have to get done that day. I love when I can strike things out of my “To Do List.” This is the curse of someone who is too organized. I guess I like to look at my list at the end of the day and know that I actually did something.  Very weird…I know.

 I have seen TRAVIS perform about 10 times: I LOVE THIS BAND! I have left work early, faked illnesses, “killed” an aunt, waited in line for hours to be on the first row,  and  even traveled twice to a different state just to see them over one weekend. Perhaps mostly to see Dougie Payne. Yep, mostly to see Dougie Payne. It’s the chirpy grin, the wiggling of hips, and that damn adorable Scottish accent.

I hate Ketchup: I don’t know why that is. I guess because I grew up in country that is mostly just crazy about mayonnaise and mustard. Of course, go figure – I end up moving to the States where most people really LOVE ketchup. Friends look at me weird when I hold the ketchup on my burger and smear it instead with mayonnaise. Sometimes I combine them both into a paste..is that wrong?

I bet that’s more that you wanted to know….

It is absolutely not cheating because WE ARE ALL THE SAME PERSON, APPARENTLY. And enjoy talking to ourselves. Self.

Damn, I'm getting confused! :)

Must be the lack of sleep. Or residual effects of last night's jello wrestling.

Travis, huh? *points to icon* I'm the SAME with these two guys. Travelled to London by bus to see them perform at the Savoy Theatre...

And Arial 11? I'm a Goudy Old Style 12 kinda girl. Though these days Times New ROMAN looks damn attractive. Dunno why that is...

(And your #3? That's me. Completely.)

Goudy Old Style? NICE! I like that you understand how important a font type can be! This Times New ROMAN is quite sneaky AND alluring...I'm unable to pin point the reason why either...

Feet: I dislike all feet...it's a strange perversion of the hands that I do not like *smacks evolution* I just look at them and think - why tie your fingers together?! Yeah, yeah walking..blah blah blah.

Oooh Lists - I love them but avoid real To-do lists it's just a list of things I didn't do (*whispers* can you come orgnise my life too?)

Is there such a thing as angle OCD? I don't like things straight necessarily but I have everything positioned as I like it and I know...I KNOW if someone has been near my mess of a desk because the angles are off. Staples parallel to the top of the page. Labels CENTRED. *tuts* you can't have things off centre.

But I love and respect your Travis dedication!

LOL OMG, hahaha ARE YOU ME? BC I THINK YOU ARE.

The perfectionist thing, the feet thing, the lists, (I HAVE LISTS FOR EVERYTHING. I PUT 'SHOWER' ON MY TO-DO LIST SO I CAN CHECK IT OFF. I THINK I HAVE A SICKNESS) the rabid fangirling of a band (NOT TRAVIS, BUT I SO RELATE TO THAT PASSION, YES) and dude, IT'S NEVER WRONG TO MIX KETCHUP AND MAYO. NEVA!

I WOULD LIKE TO RAP WITH YOU NOW.
