I Prefer...Five Neurotic Habits of Ingenius People

Larry of MacStansbury.org fame beckons, and I must answer:

“Rules: “The first player of this game starts with the topic “five weird habits of yourself,” 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 are tagged” (assuming they take comments) and tell them to read yours.”

And here are the 5 habits of highly neurotic people:

1. Every night that I set my alarm clock, I check it 2-3 times to make sure I set it right. I'm paranoid about my alarm.

2. I must rightly align every crooked picture I see. Asymmetry drives me batty.

3. I cannot use a towel, hand towel or otherwise, that smells like it's been left in the wash too long. Ick.

4. I must, at every opportunity, state my reasons for thinking that hip hop is the lowest form of artistic expression known to man.

5. I always check to see how many C.S. Lewis books a bookstore carries to determine if I like that store.

Revised: I'm adding a sixth one. My friend just told me I did this:
6. Apparently, when I'm making food for myself or others, everything must be perfectly in place. Cheese must fit the bread perfectly, things must be where they're supposed to be. I agree....presentation is everything. :)

There...do these make me a genius? I hope so.

and...Red Guy

CS Lewis. Good stuff. My favorite is the Screwtape Letters.

Actually, I was previously tagged for this on the 22nd by Wayne at Questions and Answers. Here's my five for your reference: http://thenightwriterblog.powerblogs.com/posts/1135303073.shtml

I tried commenting on your site about your already posted meme and my obvious ignorance to it, but it wouldn't let me post! The nerve!

Anyhow, I enjoyed your answers. I love the team names you've come up with...very clever. :)

Hi Em. I posted my five neuroses on my blog, but I'm going to beg off on tagging anyone, I hope you don't mind. But thanks for the meme. And I wish you the loveliest New Year ever. God Bless.
