LoneStar quirks

I saw this meme on Kendra's blog and thought it would be fun to do. But I had never run across the word "meme" before and had to look it up. I found that it is a noun and is pronounced "meem," not "meemee" as I had supposed. It means "cultural characteristic passed down through generations.” I really think, in the blogging world, it means answering a series of questions about yourself or telling everyone about "me!”

Anyway, you are supposed to list seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself, and here are mine:

1) I hate the color pink. I won't wear it. Nothing in my house is pink. If you give me something pink, I will re-home it quickly.

2) I am chronically organized; a place for everything and everything in its place. If I come upon a situation involving a group of people with no direction, I will organize them. I don't tolerate chaos well (unless it is organized and controlled).

3) Since I live in south central Texas where it is warm or just plain hot most of the year, I am usually found wearing a T-shirt, shorts, and no shoes. I do wear shoes out in public, but won't around the house.

4) I have every Star Trek novel in print (in all genres except Voyager which I don't care for). I also have every Star Wars novel in print. And yes, I have read them all, most of them several times.

5) I don't like ice in my iced tea. If you make it and keep it in the refrigerator, then it should be already cold; adding ice just waters down the brew.

6) I was allergic to chocolate for the first twelve years of my life. I am making up for lost time. I consider chocolate a food group.

7) I am a singing snob. I was a choir rat for most of my school years and sat under several very gifted voice teachers. I was taught (drilled!) about such things as proper breath control, phrasing, intonation, dynamics, diction, etc. Most of the popular "singers" I hear today make me nauseous. What they consider "style" I consider a serious lack of training. BAH!

Hi! I came across your blog from someone else's (have no clue who's) and just wondered where you are in Texas and where you are moving to. You said you drove two hours to Houston and I'm an hour to Houston, soooo we might be kinda sorta close. Anyway, I've enjoyed reading your blog and will be bookmarking it on my page. Come visit mine sometime!
