Meme from opaleyes
cap, captain miss america
Okay, opaleyes tagged me on this a few days ago and I've been meaning to do it, but haven't. Because I suck.

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. fuck you, meme! Don't you tell me what to do!

Yeah, so, if you want to do it, do it. I don't do the taggy thing. Bitches.

1. Okay, bad habit first. I pick at my skin like the dickens. I have lousy skin to begin with, I get acne and dry patches all the time. I try not to pick at them when I'm in public but I have a hard time with this one sometimes. It's kind of gross to watch, I'm sure. But anything itchy on my skin drives me absolutely batty.

2. I sing in the shower. A lot. A lot of it is songs I made up myself. Currently I've been singing my AI audition song and backup alternative songs, too, but there are lots of other ones I sing. I sing "Rose K." by Rasputina, "Scrawled in Sap" by 16 Horsepower, "Baby Driver" by Simon and Garfunkel, and, well, a lot of others. My showers frequently take 20 minutes because I get caught up in the singing. Oh, yeah. And I also write songs a lot.

3. I drink about 1400 ml of water a day. I buy one bottle of water when I get to work in the morning, and another at lunch. Would it be cheaper if I just bought 1.5 liters to start? Probably, yes. Other things I drink with frequency: Mint Hint, Metro Mint Peppermint, Mash Grapefruit, Izze sodas, Boylan's and Stewart's sodas, and Rose Green or Jasmine Green Tea's Tea by Itoen.

4. I have a cat. His name is Jonathan Harker, and he's 12 years old. Wow. I got him my senior year of high school. Wow. Long time ago, huh? Anyway, he is a spoiled brat and starts waking me up at 7 in the morning every morning. Sometimes earlier. It doesn't matter how late I go to bed, or whether I put food out for him the night before. He just really likes to wake me up. And bite my feet. A lot. And bite the rest of me a lot. I love him to death, but the whole waking me up constantly every morning grates on my nerves. If I ever have an infant, I think I will be perfectly accustomed to the disrupted sleep schedule. Generally, my solution to Harker waking me up constantly is for me to take him and put him in bed with me, and use him as a pillow so he can't move. Somehow, he is perfectly content with this.

5. I have naturally incredibly long nails. I don't really know why. I don't do anything to them, they just are. In fact, if I start to paint them, they start breaking and chipping much faster. I paint my toes, usually just during the summer, but not my fingers because it kills them. Right now, my shortest fingernail is about 1/4" above the nail, and that's only because it recently broke. My longest ones are probably about 2/3" above the nail, and over 1" tip to bed.

6. I eat sushi almost every day. When I'm home alone and don't have anybody else to eat with, I would say a good 4-5 of my dinners a week are sushi. Generally maki style because that's what the places near me have for takeaway, and I tend to get tuna or salmon. Usually tuna. Sometimes I get a tekka don from somewhere, but those are more expensive and I haven't found a good place to get them near where I live right now.

7. I had something really cool I was going to put here, but I totally forget what it was! Damn! Anyway, hmm, let me think. You guys know I like movies, and you know I like to draw, and- oh! So, the movie theater two blocks from my apartment has $6 movies on the weekends before noon. So I have a habit of getting up early on Saturday and Sunday and seeing as many movies as possible. Lately that's usually only been one a weekend but I have managed to go in for a 10 am showing and make an 11:50 of something else and see two movies for $11. I am kind of a movie fiend (just a little :-P). I generally see at least one movie a week, usually two or three, and when I was out of work, I usually saw two movies a day. I keep meaning to start a film diary but I'm a lazy bum.

My fingernails are the same way! People are always noticing them at work and going, "Ooooh, your nails are so pretty! Are they real?"

I never cut them until they start to break, when it's really noticeable that one nail is much shorter than the others. Then I trim the others to match. But people are always just SHOCKED by them, and I'm like, I don't know, they just grow that way!

Yeah, exactly! Right now I have one that's way shorter, that I can deal with, usually when two or three break then I cut them. But I have nothing to do with this, I don't feed them vitamins, and my job involves banging on a keyboard all day.

I used to have really long nails too, but now I trimmed them constantly because they bother me for archery.

This is a very interesting post, but I really really want to know what happened with the boy! any updates?

Hahahaha this is a public post! I will update in a different one later. :-P

oops.I'm so sorry. I suck at this. If you want me to delete the comment, I'll do it. :)

Hahahaha it's okay. That could be referring to a lot of different boys.

Wow, it took me at least three minutes to place the name Jonathan Harker proving that Geometry is bad for one's mental health.

Anyway. I'm very impressed that you make up your own things to sing in the shower. I manage to warble through at least twenty minutes with little or no original thought whatsoever :p

And you should keep a film diary! Or at least keep ticket stubs. I always mean to do that, just to remember what I've seen... but I hardly see any films. Your record would be a thousand times better.

Jonathan Harker is a very bitey cat.

I make up my own things to be a rock superstar, but it hasn't happened yet so they are relegated to shower singing.

I know I should-- I want to keep it as a blog, and I usually lose my stub before I get home, but I see so many movies I feel like I should record my reactions.

I keep all my ticket stubs, at least till the end of the year. But I never manage to write up a list.

It was the biting that made me click, actually *chuckle*

And hey, not yet. But one day, when you've wowed them all on AI... ;)

They've actually just been doing auditions for the SA version, and someone asked, knowing my tendency to sing not only in the shower but absolutely everywhere, if I'd auditioned, which was vaguely amusing. I have little aptitude for popular music. Possibly partly why I never write songs. It just seems somehow incongruous to write words to be sung an octave or two above one's normal speaking range. XD

I just had my first Izze pop this week. Damn those are good. Which flavour is your favourite? I think anything grapefruit and carbonated is the best ever.

Hahah, you have a cat named Jonathan Harker! Does he mew like Keanu?

5. I have naturally incredibly long nails

OMG. I HATE YOU!! D: I have the shortest nailbeds you've ever seen :( I have to have like a centimetre of white just to make them look normal. LMFAO :D *is jealous* XDD
