I've been tagged!

These are the rules of the game: The very first player chose a topic. In this case, the topic is FIVE WEIRD HABITS OF YOURS. You must then write a journal entry listing those weirdness you possess~as well as the rules of the game. Then, you select FIVE PEOPLE TO TAG and link their names/blogs in your entry. Go to their journals and leave a comment informing them they have been tagged by you and to read your journal to see in what way they have been nailed! Those five then MUST (note that I insist upon it!) write an entry listing their weird habits and tag an additional five people.   

Gee thanks, Jackie.  Almost everything about me is weird, so how do I choose?  Oh, and number 5 isn't a habit, it's a weird fact about me.  But it's what you get for tagging me. 

1.  I love getting up early in the morning.  So much so that, any time after 3 A.M., I have to force myself to stay in bed until 5.

2.  I am so picky about my coffee being "just right" that I won't let anyone put my creamer in for me.  I'd do without coffee rather than drink instant.  And if it's been in the pot over an hour, I won't drink it.  A thermos ruins it, but if it's my last resort, I'll drink coffee from a thermos.

3.  I'm almost obsessed with following recipes to a "T".  No guessing at the amounts for me:  I scrape the excess off a 1/4-teaspoon measuring spoon with a knife to make sure it's exactly right, even if it's an ingredient that isn't that crucial.

4.  I'm a total slob.  The only reason I ever clean house, or even bathe, for that matter, is for the people around me.  I could cheerfully live in a cabin with a dirt floor and no running water forever (I'd have to have electricity though, because I'd miss my computer).

5. I never went on a date until I was 20 years old.  I had the idea that, if someone really got to know me, they wouldn't like me; so I made sure nobody got to know me.  (there's still a little of that within me, by the way) 

I'm not tagging anybody.  I know, it's part of the rules.  But I never did follow rules too well.

On number four. My house don't get cleaned all that much but a bath is a must. Guess that goes back to having no bathroom growing up and now that I can use it I do LOL. Happy New Year to You and Cliff, May you have a lot of pretty days and good health to ride your motorcycle. Helen

LOL!  Well, you aren't weirder than me, Mosie, but it's always fun finding out little tidbits of "off" information about each other!! :)

Thanks for playing.. and it's okay that you didn't tag anyone!  I don't really like to tag people either...   I just try to pick people I figure will enjoy answering the questions! :)

Wow we have a lot in common, except the getting up early that is.  I dont know what 5am looks like - in fact, I'd sleep till noon everyday if I could and be happy as a clam.  I'm a night owl.  

My weirdest thing is my paper towel pet peeve. GOD FORBID the person who takes that last paper towel from the roll and leaves the cardboard tube showing. It irks me so much I can't function until another roll is purcahsed and put in place.  My kids learned early on - always leave the last one for looks!

I proudly join the ranks of the weird ;)
