That Seven Things Meme

I'm so bad at these, but kitsapFG has tagged Denise and I and Denise insisted that I fulfill the requirements, so here goes.

1. I'm a morning person. At about 9-10 pm, I pull a complete fade. I can stay up late, but really, I'm much better if I'm up with the larks.

2. My life is partially defined by having a sense of persistent underachievement. Eric says that my perspective is skewed, but I consider myself a Jill of many trades, mistress of none.

3. I read voraciously and have since I was three years old. It's been an utter constant in my life.

4. I have a teenager's fondness for speed metal punk music. Loud and bouncy, that's me.

5. For years, I considered myself a wild extravert with almost no need for alone time. Then I had four children and discovered that that might not in fact be true. Just not that much, but not none.

6. I consume Snickers bars, when I eat them rarely, in order: chocolate off the sides, chocolate off the top, caramel off the top, chocolate off the bottom, nougat. A good friend once said that I eat like a 5 year old. I assume that is confined to this example only.

7. That newspaper thing. Writing about this almost makes me shudder. I want my morning paper in perfect order. Even if someone else has read it, I want the sections in the order I want to read them (front page, local news, garden, food, entertainment, real estate) AND I want them perfectly stacked. My eldest child leaves the paper turned back to the comics and Eric strews the sections. Ugh ugh ugh! I tend to be proprietary about my turn, too. You'd think, reading this, that my house would be clean all the time. . .

Now I've done my duty and probably won't again soon. I'm passing the pain along to
Esperanza at Pluck and Feather
My good friend and fellow urban farmer at West Vista Urban Farm School
Small Goat Garden
The Gumshoe Gardener

And now I'm not going to keep going.

Well that was quite interesting, thank you.

I used to be the same way with the Sunday paper, but it was always a race to get through it so I could get to the Home and Family section that included gardening tidbits. It was usually the last section, I decided that the Home and Family was more important to me so I should read it first. LOL!

You weren't so bad at that! How fun to learn a bit more about you. I got tagged days ago with that meme and I still can't figure out what to reveal about me. That newspaper thing, I've got some of that, it drives me crazy to find the paper all mussed up and folded the wrong way.

Way to go, kiddo!!!
You hopped on the MeMe train and rode it to the next stop in the blogosphere. And made it your own, cool.

Loved your "reveal" items! You will be pleased to know that I always carefully reassemble the paper back to it's original state after I have read it. I have no idea why I do that, but there you are.
