This week's featured blogger over at FF is:
Ninja Girl from Ninja Girl Reads!
And the question is:
Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...
You're kidding-- only five?! Well, I'll do my best to whittle all my odd little habits down to a short list. ;)1. Parajunkee says she loves the smell of tires-- I confess to being addicted to the smell of books... and wood shavings. It's why I can never "get into" e-books the way I can physical books... they just don't have that off-the-printing-press aroma! Wood shavings because they remind me of the stable, and also of freshly-carved bookshelves (my dad's a carpenter, good figure).
2. I completely can't stand odd numbers. Just an aspect of my weirdo OCD, but everything really must be even. I can't, for example, eat an odd number of bites or read an odd number of pages.
3. Quirky (read certifiable) places and times where and when I've been known to read:
-- While running on the treadmill at full speed
-- While blow-drying my hair
-- While my mother shops (I used to tag along whenever she went to the mall and walk around with a book stuck in my nose, bumping into kiosks and racks of clothing)
-- While waiting for computer pages to load (I had dial-up until about a year ago... 'nough said!)
--I've never tried this myself, but I have a friend who swears she's taught herself to read while driving!
4. I'm developing an unfortunate (though admittedly entertaining) addiction to Youtube parodies and videos (especially A Very Potter Musical and the Lost Parodies). I feel like such a member of Generation Z when I go on about anything Youtube... we are all so hooked on technology! Seriously though, A Very Potter Musical is worth getting addicted to!
5. Something else I'm addicted to... the Traveler IQ Challenge at travelpod.com! Not to brag, but I can now beat every version of this game (yep, I'm pretty sure that qualifies as bragging). Still, it's not an easy feat by any means!
ANYWAY, thanks so much for stopping by and wading through my weirdness! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and wish you happy reading!
