A Baker's Dozen of Idiosyncrasies

Am I the only person in the world who:
  1. Travels with a GPS on board commercial aircraft so I can tell exactly where I am and how long it will take me to get to my destination?
  2. Takes a break every ten minutes or so when working on a project so I can pace back and forth just to consider it?
  3. Leaves the first drink untouched for over half an hour on those rare occasions I go into a bar?
  4. Loves winter and snow?
  5. Feels that conspiracy mongers are just pawns in an even greater conspiracy?
  6. Has never watched a single reality television show (except Junkyard Wars)?
  7. Can still recite the opening dialogue to The Prisoner?
  8. Thinks that Texas Hold'em is wuss game?
  9. Believes that the garbage can is the most important office and household organizing tool?
  10. Gives his dogs nicknames which mutate on a weekly basis?
  11. Eats peanut butter, lettuce and mayonnaise sandwiches?
  12. Has solved the "Which came first: the chicken or the egg" conundrum?
  13. Can spoon feed himself horseradish straight from the jar?

14. Irrational fear of hybrid carnivores
15. Dons Tutu and dances "Swan Lake"
16. Blows milk out nose to entertain children

Sorry, just don't like lists that end in 13.

In a word, yes. Except for #10. Constantly mutating nicknames for pets are de rigeur in this household.

TPK: what's with this polargriz fixation you seem to be devloping?

WoD: the strange thing is that our dogs always seem to know when we are talking about them no matter what we call them.

Mr. Fab: those are just 13 character traits I want to make public. There are a whole catalogue of private ones.

I was going to say that I bet the dogs answer to anything you call them, but you sort of beat me to it!

10. Yes, I can relate to this as I call my cats and my children by nicknames most of the time and on the rare occasion I forget their given names, lol.

11. If you weren't a man, I would ask if you were pregnant.

Fuff: my lab is at the point that she thinks her name is "bad dog". I've spoiled her so much that she wags her tail vigourously and expects food or a pat everytime I call her that.

Blair Bitch: so I am not the only one who forgets his children's names. Sometimes I get so distracted that I rattle off four wrong names before I hit the right one.

I'm with ya on items 2, 4, 5, 9, 10 and 13. That's nearly a baker's half-dozen, methinks.

The first time I read #5 I saw "prawns" and thought Hmm, no, but I can dig it.

Nice blog, btw. :)

I think the concept of a Polagriz is pretty damn funny. Of course I don't have to worry about coming across one on my way down to the state liquor store.

I promise to lay off the polagriz talk.

My aunt had 3 daughters, 2 sisters and one niece (guess who?). I once saw her go through all 6 names before she said the right one.
