habitual meme


I'm one of the cool kids! I got tagged! He he. :)

The Rules: The first player of this game starts with the topic "five weird habits" and people who get tagged need to write an entry about their five weird habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next five people to be tagged and link to their web journals. Don't forget to leave a comment in their blog or journal that says "You have been tagged" (assuming they take comments) and tell them to read yours.

1) I often find myself talking to myself, particularly in Spanish. What can I say? I like to talk to a good woman and I like to hear a good woman talk.

2) I drink while making dinner -- usually tea... lovely water. Ahhh....

3) I subconsciously "memorize" where books are located. Time to do this again since I just reorganized them. This habit dates back to when I was young and memorized where my parent's books were.

4) If I'm ever doing anything somewhat mundane that doesn't require a lot of thought and I'm not currently involved in a conversation I'm usually lost in my head, making up stories. I have always done this, ever since I can remember. Doing dishes? Lost in my head. Showering? Lost in my head. Dusting? Lost in my head. This is why it can take a couple times to get my attention. For example, "Mama, I want a sanwich, please?" I keep doing dishes. "Mama, can I have a sanwich, please?" "Huh?" "Sanwich." "Oh yeah." Heh. I have tried to break this habit and only think about stories during a certain time of the day, but it doesn't work. I still get lost in my head.

5) Whenever I go into a bookstore for the first time in a while, or a new bookstore, or when I start reading a book I tend to approach them in the same way. First I get a big picture -- I either figure out where everything is (if I'm in a store) or read the jacket fly and synopsis so I know what the book is about and as much about the author as possible. If I'm reading a book I also study the table of contents, if available, and read all introductions and afterwards. After I get a general lay of the land, then I dig in. I'll start the book or start in a section of the bookstore (e.g. Science Fiction and Fantasy or Cultural Studies, etc.). I have to know what I'm getting into before I can start.

So I get to tag some people, eh?


I tag Rice (a sneaky way to pull him back into the blogosphere, eh?), Akanthos, Netter, Stephanie ,and the J-Spot (we'll pull him back in, too).

Go to it and have fun.

And if you haven't been tagged yet, feel free to post your habits and leave a message in my comments section.
