I got tagged by shegollum...

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"

1. I always keep my bedroom clock at least 30 minutes fast. I find the later it says it is, the easier for me to trick my head/body into believing it.

2. I'm very pick about my cd's and dvd's. They all have to be put back in their cases, titles facing correctly so their readable.

3. I collect magnets of Orlando's movies and still need Haven and the last two Pirate movies for the collection to be complete.

4. I love my daily calendars and can't function without them. Unfortunately, this year, there weren't any LotR or PotC ones to be found and I had to settle for something else so I'm just really bummed.

5. My biggest pet peeve is someone running off with my ink pen.

6. I refuse to come in after a movie has started (if I haven't seen it) and watch it. SO not happening!

7. I sleep with a fan on and 2 tissues under my pillow because of my allergies

Okay, tagging....

And in case anyone wonders where I've been--that nasty stomach flu nailed me. Twice. Sheesh!
