Shannon tagged me to come up with 7 random things about me so here goes:

1. I don't like having different colored hangars in my closet. I have all white. I have tried to throw all other colors away, but if I come across one and we need it, I put it on Brody's side of the closet.

2. I generally read the ending to a book before I finish it. I guess I can't stand's probably why I also look for my Christmas gifts before Christmas.

3. I hardly ever freeze food. I am afraid I'm going to do it wrong, and end up poisoning my family.

4. I don't like lunch. Maybe it comes from years of packing the same thing every day when I taught school.

5. I am terrible at directions. I generally have to mapquest directions to someones house about 4 times before I actually remember how to get there.

6. I like trying different foods when I go out to restaurants. I try not to order the same thing twice...unless I REALLY love it.

7. I letter count. It's hard to explain, but when I hear a word or a name, I tap out the spelling on my fingers and have to make it even. My thumbs are for the middle letter if it's uneven. Example: ja_i_me. Weird...I know.

OK...if you want to play, I'd love to read your list...if I haven't scared you away by my crazy quirks :)

I can soooo relate to the letter counting. Mine is a little different and so complicated that I can't even explain how it works. Maybe we're both a little on the OCD side.

I have weird counting rituals too but mine are related to walking, can only step on cracks on an odd number, things like that. Hangers also make me crazy with unmatching colors. Your not so off - or maybe just both of us are!

You're going to have to explain the letter counting thing to me more...I'm a bit confused...

Oh, gold tennies are fine. I just don't like harvest gold stuff that much. :-)

Fun to learn the litte quirks people have...

Yes, I want to know more about this letter counting too. Like...when do you do it? Surely it can't be every word you hear. If you need to get rid of hangers, you can pass them along to me. I hoard hangers...I think I should have out that on my list. I have a million all unmatching. Perhaps that is what is distracting people from buying my house. Ha ha.

i now pronounce brody as the saint of the unmatched hanger.

the lettercounting is fascinating.

I don't quite get the letter counting thing either... is that something you learned or taught when you were teaching?
