That ol' Pyramid-Scheme Meme.  
Okay, I've been tagged by two different people already, so I'd better do this before I forget.

1. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
2. Tag seven people to do the same.
3. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it."

1. I often rock back and forth while talking on the phone, standing in line, etc. I know I've been doing this for years because I can distinctly remember swinging back and forth while holding on to a shopping cart a few years back. Do people stare at me when I do this in public? Not as far as I can tell. Generally, they don't even notice. They probably have more important things to look at than me acting like Adi weird.

2. I also do it while sitting down. Does that count as a separate item?

3. I love rubbing noses with cats, or rubbing our faces together. Both my cats like to do it, too. Nothin' says lovin' like a cat nose rubbin'.

4. When I draw, I mainly look at the thing I'm drawing rather than the surface I'm drawing on. I trace the shape I'm looking at with my eye movements, and my hand automatically follows. I can do this with a mouse, too (in fact, since I developed severe finger trouble, I can only use a mouse.)

5. I have to wrap my fingers in cloth in order to type. In fact, my index fingers get sore just from waving them around, so sometimes I have to wrap up my fingers even if I'm doing nothing but gesturing. (I wouldn't exactly call this a "quirk", exactly -- more like a "fact", I guess.)

6. When I was a kid, I built a dinosaur habitat in the basement. I took a large metal tray, filled it with water, then built a land mass out of spongy yellow packing material. Then I put my toy dinosaurs in it, the land dinosaurs on the land and the aquatic ones in the water. Unfortunately, the water gradually soaked into the land, turning it into a swamp. I had to take out the sponges periodically, squeeze them and put them back in. That was my first lesson in ecosystem dynamics and the art of terraforming. (Of course I'd come up with a grand lesson to be learned from it, wouldn't I?)

7. I sleep on an old camp cot that used to belong to my mother. Why? Because I currently have no other object in the house that I can sleep on, especially with my lousy joints. At first I was afraid that I would fall off of it because it's so small and narrow, but I adjusted to it within one night. The only real inconvenience is that my cats keep climbing on even though there's really no room for them.

And now, I have to tag seven other people (that's the "Pyramid Scheme" part). Lemme check my Mutual Friends list...

Okay, here are the next seven lucky winners:


I chose people whom I know are frequently active. If you find memes like this excessively annoying, feel free to ignore. Otherwise, please do satisfy my curiosity.

I might do it.

There, I satisfied your curiosity. :]

I'm on the road at the moment (heading from Redding to Berkeley in a few minutes, in fact), but if I get a little time amid the chaos, I'll consider responding here rather than in my LJ.
