OK, so I’ve heard of this tagging thing, but have never had it happen to me….I have been tagged by Michelle, who is telling me I have to list six quirky things about myself. Hmmm. OK….

1. I have an irrational fear of sharks, (which you may have heard of earlier in this blog). Not just when I’m in the water, either. I can just think about them and fill myself with angst. Anyone ever see that Saturday Night Live skit where the shark is actually at the door pretending to be a pizza delivery man? That’s my greatest fear. LOL! The worst part is that my friends know this, so I have, in the past, found photos of sharks taped to my computer screen, etc. Sheesh! (ya, ya, ok, it’s funny).

2. The entire house can be a complete mess. I mean clean laundry to fold, dirty laundry to wash, bags of camera gear lying around, dishes in the sink. And it bugs me, it really does. I actually find it quite stressful. BUT, if the kitchen counter is wiped clean; no crumbs, no drips and drops, I feel tons better. That’s all it takes! (Before I finally get to the rest).

3. Unlike Michelle, I don’t really like being early at all. Not to say that I’m late, but I like to be RIGHT ON TIME. This can get risky, as even when I need to catch a flight, or a ferry, or whatever, I really don’t want to wait in line. Ever. And yes, I have missed flights this way.

4. Open kitchen cabinets drive me nuts. Ask any old room-mate. I had one that used to go into a cabinet to get something, then LEAVE IT OPEN! I would follow behind her closing them. Dunno why. Can’t stand it.

5. I have a habit (I think this comes from my mom) where instead of putting leftovers THAT I KNOW WILL NOT GET EATEN in the garbage, I put them in the fridge. I guess I’m delaying my guilt over the starving children in China for as long as I can…

6. I am SUCH a list writer. But it’s not that I write the list that’s quirky, it’s that I don’t take anything off the list when I’m done. I tick it off instead, so I can see what I’ve accomplished. Then I keep these lists. Again, to see what I’ve accomplished. I’ll even write something on the list that I’ve already done, just so I can tick it off! And yes….I do laugh at myself. :)

I need more blog friends, so I can pass on this tag. Ryan…hurry up and blog!!
