Update on my life: I'm busy and I'm going to cut off the fro...but my next hair appointment isn't until next Wednesday...I thought it was this Wednesday.

My nutritionist and I are getting along swimmingly.

I'm playing an new MMO called A Tale in the Desert...which is oddly addictive considering all you do is plant flax in ancient Egypt...you know farming. But very compelling, I must say.

Now on to something much more interesting...A meme!

I was tagged by both [livejournal.com profile] ichbinkelsey and [livejournal.com profile] enchantress71

***Basic Rules: The first player of this "game" starts with the topic "5 weird habits of yours" and people who get tagged need to write an entry about their 5 quirky habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 5 people to be tagged and list their names.***

1. As a kid I read that Voodoo priests often use fingernails or toenails of their victim to make voodoo dolls. So I obessively make sure that any snippet of finger or toenail is recovered and thrown away when I'm clipping said nails. For example, if in the process of clipping my nails, a piece of nail goes flying...then I must search my carpet until I find it.

2. I alphabetize all my CDs and when I have more than one CD by the same performer, I then sort by release date. Currently, Compilations are placed by the name of the Compilation...which doesn't make me all that happy, but I resist taking them out and putting them in their own category because I try to avoid genre distinctions...Maybe I could just have a Various Artists section and not organize that by genre....

3. The television...i.e. visual stimulus...is very distracting for me. So if I am in involved in an "intimate" moment...I have to have the TV off or I'll start watching it...which would be a bad thing.

4. I fold my underwear and socks. I no longer roll my underwear and socks Army-style, but I always fold them and I'm consistent and anal about the way I fold my laundry.

5. When Making my bed, I still make my bed the Army way...hospital corners and all.

There are more...many of them Army artifacts...but there you go. I tag...[livejournal.com profile] beatricekiddo, [livejournal.com profile] caprine, [livejournal.com profile] complainr, [livejournal.com profile] epilady, and [livejournal.com profile] mrtrystan.

In my online gaming magazine, folks were talking about their Bacon Numbers. Mine is 3.

So the technical note that I didn't know before: The Bacon number requires that you be *in* a theatrical or cinematic feature to start the chain.

1. Back in the 80s, I was in the play Phantom of the Opera. The Phantom was played by Scott Beach.

2. Scott Beach played the Mayor in the film Stand By Me, which also featured Kiefer Sutherland.

3. Kiefer Sutherland was in three films with Kevin Bacon: Code of Conduct, A Few Good Men, and Flatliners.

revisionist historian
You are a Revisionist Historian. You are the Clark
Kent of postmodernists. You probably want to
work in a library or in social services. No
one suspects you of being a postmodernist...
until they read your publications!


What kind of postmodernist are you!?

Perhaps I shouldn't be as proud of this accomplishment as I am...I think I'm more relieved than proud. But nonetheless...I passed 8th Grade math with flying colors! Alright, I passed an 8th Grade Math meme. Actual 8th Grade math I think I got a D in.

You Passed 8th Grade Math

Congratulations, you got 10/10 correct!

This is a gaming thing...all my gaming buddies, feel free to meme away! This is based on the work of the very cool game designer Robin Laws.

You scored as Method Actor. You think that gaming is a form of creative expression. You may view rules as, at best, a necessary evil, preferring sessions where the dice never come out of the bag. You enjoy situations that test or deepen your character's personality traits.
