Les idiosyncrasies de moi!

I have had the privledged of being tagged by Lady Linoleum Thanks! My first "tagging"! So here goes....

id•i•o•syn•cra•sy - a structural or behavioral characteristic peculiar to an individual or group. Write down 5 of your own idiosyncrasies, then if you wish, tag 5 people.

1 - When really upset, I tend to swear in languages beside english....and occasionally make up the language!

2 - I often "forget" to blink which freaks people out (namely my sister D)

3 - I have issues with leaving a book unfinished to go to bed if its the first time I am reading it! (I'll read until 4, 5 even 6 in the morning if I have to in order to finish it! And yes, I re-read ALL of my books even the not so good ones becuase I might have been having a bad reading day!)

4 - My books must be grouped by author on my bookshelves, but once off the shelf disorder rules

5 - I can not eat anything that is looking at me! Examples - A fish with its head still on, the Cray fish with the bubbly eyes, lobster...nope, either take the head off, turn it around or cover it up, but if its looking at me I can not take a bite!

Now who to tag....hopefully I can tag people who have not already been tagged! I will tag Cordelia, Celeste, Faith, Debi and Mimi

I can't help laughing at your swearing comment - my hubby makes things up when he gets really peeved (since we have little kids, he's trying to be good and not say the "real" thing) and we always end up laughing about them later - I mean "monkey mackeral farmer?!!" or "fooba fracking fribba fleep?!" What is that?

I'm the same way about the books, too. I have to finish it before I go to bed or I can't sleep. And it's nice to know I'm not the only one who re-reads.

Now I have to go think of my own ... :D

Well ya tagged me, are you happy? LOL

I just give steely glares and cuss under my breath unless really provoked. Then I have no fear of flinging flith!

My books are arranged by genre first, then author. Love meeting others as anal as I am!

Books are arranged by author, then alphabetized...Dh is a bit obsessive compulsive and I allow that...You should see the books in our house! We are both addicted - to the point that we can't go in a bookstore without spending over $100, and no one understands how we can keep all we buy and re-read them! (I even have an author in mind that you might like, but I'm scared to go buy the book!) I wish I could stay up til all hours to finish books, but mine are usually incredibly long and my eyes get tired and dry. :(

Oh, and I swear in Renaissance Engligh. I used to work Faires and Fye and Fye On It are my favorites!

Oh, wait Kimberly, I'm not any good at this...!! I might run out of english, can I use spanish or japanese? hehe...
