frogworth: Peter as a South Park character (Default)
[personal profile] frogworth
So I've been tagged by [livejournal.com profile] jaylake to reveal my secret eccentricities, or to name five weird habits anyway.

The Rules: The first player of this game starts with the topic "five weird habits" and people who get tagged need to write an entry about their five weird habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next five people to be tagged and link to their web journals. Don't forget to leave a comment in their blog or journal that says "You have been tagged" (assuming they take comments) and tell them to read yours.

1. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I like to eat raw pasta. Preferably tubular spaghetti or thin stuff, if it 's dried - I acknowledge that that hard stuff crunching in your teeth can be a bit much.
Actually, frankly I just like dough of any kind. Raw pasta goes very well with a hunk of mature cheddar cheese. Now you know.

2. I have this nervous habit of clicking my teeth together in rhythm. Actually, generally two rhythms at once - one side doing like a kick drum, the other the snare or hi-hats.
Nobody else can hear it, I would assume, but I'm sure it's bad, if not for the teeth, then for the tension in my jaw. Hello night-time tooth-grinding! Eek.

3. A recovering obsessive compulsive, I once overthrew an eastern European regime because the colours on their flag made me feel odd. My mental state at the time was such that I never followed through with a viable exit strategy, and once I lost interest the country degenerated into guerilla warfare, and the current dictator has, it must be admitted, considerably worse colour coordination than his predecessor. Me culpa.

4. I can often be a less social being than apparently most "normal" people are. I always carry a book or three with me, and enjoy sitting alone at a club reading my book on a couch in the only suitably-lit corner available.
At other times I can be a perfectly civilised participant in group or one-on-one conversations. Nevertheless, I feel more comfortable knowing I have a book handy, just in case.

5. In the vein of bibliotec's habit #1, I enjoy not only chip sandwiches (ie crisps from a packet), but am also a connoisseur of hot chip sandwiches. Particularly yummy is a hot chip and ham sandwich on white bread (unusual as I prefer multigrain in general)

NB: For privacy's sake, some of the details above have been altered slightly.

Hot chip sandwiches? Sigh. I suspect that I will soon be participating in a 'new' weird habit. Hey, and not to worry about #3... happens all the time in the good ol' US of A!

In my younger, more foolhardy days, I used to take the ham-and-hot-chip-on-white-bread sandwiches to another level entirely, by adding sour cream. How exactly I came upon this delicacy I am not sure, but my arteries are pleased that I no longer tend to go for, frankly, either version.

I do so very much wish I hadn't reminded myself of that ;) Eek!

You're weeeeird!

I totally understand the book-carrying habit though, being a less social being than most "normal" people myself.

I have been known to dip hot chips in icecream before.

I also eat icecream in (sweet) buns, which is sold at any good icecream vendor in Thailand ;)

*heh* Thought so.
Anyway... hot ships in icecream? ARGH!
So anyway, that'll have to go into your list of weird habits - *hint hint*
