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

      → I check my email before getting out of bed. My iPod Touch stays under my pillow at night (because I almost always read something on the 'net before I go to sleep because I have trouble falling asleep and the laptop is too bright to read on and get sleepy) so when I wake up in the morning, I grab it and use it to check my email and flist.

      → My favorite smell in the world is that of horse manure. Sounds weird, I know, but the smell of a barn makes me feel at home.

      → When I take a shower I have to bathe in a certain order or I get really twitchy. The way I'm viewing things in Firefox have to be lined up just right, too. No words cut off or anything like that.

      → Sushi is the only reason I consider myself a faux-vegetarian. I call myself a real one but I don't think I could live without sushi.

      → I can't listen to my iPod if it's not on shuffle and repeat all. IDK why either.

      → I walk around my room while listening to music to help me plan out difficult scenes in things I'm writing. Moving around and acting things out helps me work through issues and figure out how the dialogue would flow. And, yes, I've had one-sided sword fights and fistfights to see how battle would flow as well. Yes, I've had people walk in on me right as I'm pretending to get punched in the face. It's really, really, really embarrassing.

      → I wear three rings all the time. Two on my left hand, one on my right. I've worn them for so long that taking them off makes me feel more naked than being in front of people in my underwear.

    I tag: [ profile] makinhistory, [ profile] megasquip, [ profile] nytyngayl, [ profile] lithographic, [ profile] rumination, [ profile] pridefall, and [ profile] nodoff. If any of you don't want to do it, though, you don't have to. :) LUIS, YOU DON'T COUNT IN THAT. YOU HAVE TO DO IT.

    List your characters. Then pick a trait from each one that the two of you share and explain it. If you don't share a trait with any of them, put N/A.
      [ profile] thosethatrun
        → We share an awe at the wonder of the universe. I would love nothing more than to travel and see everything the world has to offer.
      [ profile] notjustcopies
        → We both want to save the world. I see so many things that I want to help with, that are hurting people, and I want to fix all of it.
      [ profile] youfingwhore
        → Crass jokes and the ability to live in denial.
      [ profile] tsimoudia
        → We share loyalty. It was one of the traits I passed on from myself to Cass when I was creating her character. She gets attached much more easily than I do, but both of us would take a bullet for anyone we care about.
      [ profile] vettecrasher
        → Jim and I share a rebellious nature. If rules don't make sense to me, I just don't follow them. It's the way I am and I am damn proud of it.
      [ profile] quantumbird
        → We share a bookish nature. Sally's a girl that most people don't understand because of that nature, but we've both come to be comfortable with it and take pride in it.
      [ profile] auspicions
        → Our shyness! I fidget like she does when I meet new people and I have a hard time connecting.
      [ profile] chantries
        → Snark. Chapel's a woman that doesn't put up with shit and she'll tell you when she thinks you're being an idiot with a smart remark and a "bitch, plz" face.
      [ profile] eternalgrey
        → Our love of music. He has a line in the books that's something I came up with for myself that I knew I had to pass onto him. "Music touches the soul in a way that nothin' else does. It becomes a part of you when you really connect with it. And it can lead you such amazin' places if you let it."
      [ profile] i_can_do_zat
        → Our youthfulness! It's one of the reasons I really connected with Chekov in the new movie. He's young, and he's competent and gdit, I am too.
      [ profile] jimeeena
        → A flirtatious nature. I like flirting. It's fun. I kind of suck at it if I'm flirting with someone I'm just meeting, but if you're a friend and you're a guy, chances are I'll flirt with you a bit. Heck, I flirt with some of my girl friends just because we get kicks and giggles out of it.
      [ profile] unvocalized
        → The big sister nature. I just want to be everyone's protector and confidant and big sister. I want to be the person they turn to and I want to be the strong shoulder they can rest and cry on.

    Do it if you want to!

/rips out uterus. WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who does that acting things out thing. I've even had conversations with myself, figuring out how a character would say something.

...I'm not sure if me doing it too makes it any less crazy. Probably not.

I've done that. 'Course I was the kid that pretended the teddy bears could talk back, so. 8|

It's so weird. I like. Froze and had about five minutes of awkward turtle staring contest with my Dad before he went "... I'll just leave you to... Whatever it was you were doing."

LOL Yeah, I've had that happen.

Even worse than fake!punch in the face for me, though, is standing around in my pajamas and making ridiculous telekinesis hand gestures and getting caught doing that. Mostly 'cause I might have been doing sound effects. /facepalm

jksjfksdjfs. YES. Or like. Fake flying. That one's always embarrassing. Especially if you're obviously doing the Superman flying pose with one leg in the air.

And making whooshing sounds.

Yeeeeah. That's pretty bad, too. I've done that.

Or, like, hissing something in some made up, guttural language when you've got a character casting an Evil Spell™ and you want to see how it sounds to describe it. That's pretty bad, too.

Oh, man. That would be so embarrassing.

Well, I bathe in a certain order, too. And I hate having my iPod not on repeat/shuffle. And I also check my email before getting out of bed, but that's because of the small chance that it'll be a snow day and I won't have to get up at all.

'Sall good. XD
