Monday Miscellany Meme

  • Today is a holiday!
  • Helping others move is a great discipline. at 10pm last night, Mr. Spit and I decided that we would be going through our house and performing a great purge. I'm not much of a clutter hound, but I'm sure some of it has snuck in. . .
  • I am getting close to the point where I always remember the 780. Which is good because evil, nasty jerks lovely phone company will compel me to dial it shortly.
  • My birthday is coming. Next to Christmas, Hallowe'en and Easter, my birthday is my favourite holiday. This year I am spending it volunteering at a Casino to raise money for a non-profit.

And the meme.

The lovely Reese tagged me to mention six quirky, yet boring, unspectacular details about myself.

  1. When I eat skittles or M and Ms, I always take a handful out of the bag, and organize them by colour. I don't have to eat them in a particular order, I just organize them by colour.
  2. In the same vein, I always eat my meals in the same order. The carbs first, then the veg, then the meat. Mr. Spit thinks this is just odd. My mother does the same thing. It's not that she ever taught me to eat this way, I just picked it up.
  3. I don't mind bugs outside. But I hate it when they come inside. I get a bit weirded out by spiders.
  4. I live in one of the few places in the world that is rat-free. No really. We don't have rats in Alberta. First time I saw one was in the tube in London. I've never seen a small, furry rodent that was that big.
  5. I have a deep and abiding love of stationary and pens. Seriously. Want to make me happy, take me to an office supply store and let me buy pens! I also really love nice stationary. Crane's in New York has the best in the world, but the shipping prices to Canada are really, really exorbitant, so I make do with monogrammed stuff from a store here in Edmonton (Notables, if you are curious)
  6. I have never bought a TV. Every TV we have has been given to us. The current one is about 17 years old. Mr. Spit and I watch perhaps 2 hours of cable television a month. We might watch years old, works just fine. I've never seen Desperate Housewives, CSI, Ugly Betty, House, Lost, Survivor, or any other popular television shows. Actually, that's not true. I watched 5 minutes of Desperate Housewives about 2 years ago. I was, umm, astounded. The no-buying TV thing just might change. (For those who don't click over, and you should, it's the story of how I spent $1154.72 at Best Buy on Friday night. I've never seen a 15 year old cashier look that astounded. Never)
