a) List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself

1) In the mornings, I prefer to shower without turning on the lights. This isn't so odd during the summer when it's daylight, but in winter it often means that I shower completely in the dark.

2) I dislike drama in movie form. If it's not action or comedy, I generally avoid watching it. Since becoming a parent, I been forced to ration my movie watching, so it's only gotten more extreme. However, I will go out of my way to see dramatic plays; the Crucible is possibly my favorite play of all times.

3) I collect silver patterns.

4) I have extremely good color memory. I can generally go to a store and know exactly if something matches things that I have at the house. This is handy for picking out earrings, shirts and furniture.

5) The worst time of the day for me is between the hours of 7:00 and 9:00 PM. If I'm alone in the house, I tend to get a little stir-crazy and twitchy. It makes business travel particularly rough for me, although I've learned to cope with it by going out for very long dinners or hitting the bookstore.

6) One of my favorite past-times is walking through empty and unfinished houses.

7) I have a Thing for voices which means that I adore being read to. Sadly, I'm not really good at processing auditory input, so I don't always follow the reading. Nevertheless, there is very little else that makes me feel as relaxed and happy as being curled up in bed while listening to someone read.

tLD slept the entire night through last night. Twas glorious until she woke from a nightmare or something and wouldn't resettle. Ah well.

Taken from [ profile] pegkerr via [ profile] sdn:

Based upon what you know about me, suggest an activity to do that is something I may not have considered but would probably enjoy. If feasible, I will endeavor to do that particular activity sometime in the next, oh, year, and I'll report back on how it went.

Edit: If you say "other", you should leave a comment telling me what you mean. Or I will come steal your cheese.

My boss just dropped by to tell me that he'd gotten my yearly review. As he did, he checked to see if I'd done it on the clock (which I had) and assured me that it was okay. "Besides," he said, "I wouldn't want to have been the one who had to tell you otherwise."

And so I say, "snu?" Am I really that intimidating?" I've had [ profile] touchstone mention that some people find me so. It baffles me.

Thus, in the spirit of Friday the 13th, I give you the Scary Lilisonna Poll. )

Post a real or imaginary rumor that you have heard about me. Let me know if you made the rumor up or have actually heard it (and if so, if you believe it.) I'll compile them in a secondary post and allow folks to guess which ones are actual rumors and which ones are false. Depending on the rumors, I may confirm, deny or no comment as to their truth or falsehood.

Comments will be screened so as to not spoil the surprise. Rumors that are potentially nasty or damaging will not be posted.
Blog about Olympic athletes who place last. Kinda nifty because the general attitude is "They're there. You aren't. Even last is damned impressive."

Lemming! Who Am I meme

Snow! There was snow this weekend. It was almost perfect snow. It looked fluffy coming down, lightly covered rooftops and was gone by 11:00 this morning. Perfect snow would have been a little heavier (about an inch) and would have been gone by 11:00 tomorrow morning. Still, you take what you can get.

Went shopping yesterday afternoon for shoes and unexpectedly clothes for me. I have learned over the years that I should buy clothes whenever I am willing and interested in trying them on. This mood rarely lasts more than 30 minutes per year, and it's important to take advantage of it when it arrives.

The baby-feeding experiment continues smoothly so far. tLD has expressed her doubt about the whole yoghurt thing, but she is still willing to give it a try. She does, however, screw up her face and wrinkle her nose every time she takes a bite. Her parents, being cruel and evil people, find this cute and adorable and take pictures.

Happy Birthday to [ profile] lightbearer!

The problem with LJ: We all think we are so close, but really we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

Edited to add
If you're really curious, the tag "about me" will link to a series of info on my life past and present.
