1.  What are one or two of your weird idiosyncracies? Little things like not being able to sleep with socks on, etc. (

2. Do you use mostly pen or pencil to write?

3. What's your latest food obsession/favorite?

4. What's your most favorite form of exercise? Least?

5. How often do you have a garage/tag sale? Is your purpose to declutter or to make money?

I have to have one foot sticking out of the blankets when I sleep;  I will KILL you if you touch my knees.. my wifeeven has a mantra she made up "not the knee, not the knee, NEVER the knee,"; and   I hate to wear shoes, I'd go barefoot all the time if I could.   So I guess mine are all about feet and legs!

2. Do you use mostly pen or pencil to write? Pen always ..even for crossword puzzles which I do relentlessly

3. What's your latest food obsession/favorite? Dunkin Donuts Butter Pecan Iced Coffee... mother of God ... so good

4. What's your most favorite form of exercise? Least? Horizontal Running is my favorit ("Pitch Perfect? Anyone? anyone? )  ok no?  I love power walking with my ipod that's my fave.. my least favorite would be running or jogging

5. How often do you have a garage/tag sale? Is your purpose to declutter or to make money? I've nver held a garage sale but my wife is a craigslisting wizard... it's usually for both purposes

I like a fixed table.  I also have a love/hate relationship with belts if that counts, I wish I had more meat/hips so I didn't need to where them but I like the look with some outfits.  Coconut cake.  Favorite exercise:  Kim's sculpture class.  Least:  Spinning and weights.  Declutter, I literally give stuff away.

1.  Well, the whole thing with the socks, sure.  Also closets and cabinets MUST be closed, which would seem to be a simple rule when you're the only human in the house, but Buster knows how to open cabinet doors and he's taught Cyduck, Maisie and Trini.  And I'm a little OCD because I have an order in which I shower (hair, face, body-from top down).  A few months ago, I skipped washing my hair and washed my face first.  And then while I was washing the rest of my, I was sulking a little bit because I forgot to wash my hair and it really really needed it and what was I going to do now????  And then about the time I got to my feet, it occurred to me that I actually *could* still wash my hair......  BAER

2.  Pen.  When I do use a pencil, it's ALWAYS a mechanical pencil. 

3. I don't really have one right now.  My last one was brussel sprouts and I do still like them, but I don't crave the.

4. AWT (Aerobics with Weight Training).  Least favorite is running.

5.  Never.  I either list it on Craigslist or haul it to Goodwill/Salvation Army or the dump.  Always to declutter.

I'm going to have to call for a ruling here.  Nobody loves squats.  I'll grant that squats give more bang for the buck though. ;)

lol. I LOVE Kickboxing. I did a little at home last night as we skipped the nightly walk. The class is non-stop for an hour but it feels really good and I am hoping it helps me to get into a bathing suit (preferably a bikini) Laughing

All the canisters in the kitchen have to be arranged so the roosters face forward.

2. Do you use mostly pen or pencil to write?

pens.  I never make mistakes. 

3. What's your latest food obsession/favorite?

Pirates Booty.  I didn't know there were other flavors.

4. What's your most favorite form of exercise? Least?

Ideally, a game of basketball or softball, or swimming laps.  In lieu of that, barre fusion or studio cycling.  But almost daily I'll run on the treadmill too ~ love watching Netflix or running the "courses" all over the world.

5. How often do you have a garage/tag sale? Is your purpose to declutter or to make money?

I never did.
