1.  What are one or two of your weird idiosyncracies? Little things like not being able to sleep with socks on, etc.  I don't like using colored pens--it needs to be black or blue.

2. Do you use mostly pen or pencil to write? Pen. Only time I use pencil is for the checkbook register.

3. What's your latest food obsession/favorite? Ghirdelli Intense Dark Sea Salt Soiree chocolate

4. What's your most favorite form of exercise? Least?  Dance classes. Hate running.

5. How often do you have a garage/tag sale? Is your purpose to declutter or to make money?  Usually mostly to declutter.  But if I'm going to have a garage sale, I only want to do it if I have enough to make it worth my time.  I usually just donate things to a Salvation Army type place a few times over the year.

M&M's have to be eaten in pairs, in a particular order of color, which I will not specify here in the interest of minimizing argument. If there is an odd number of any color, the singles are eaten before the pairs, in the specified order of color, of course.    ;)  Same goes for Skittles.  

If I am in a car, the windows need to be closed.  No breezes allowed.

I eat all one of the foods on my plate before starting another.  My dad and my brother did the same thing.  I always though that we learned it from my dad, until I found out that all 3 of my half-brothers, who didn't know Dad until they were in their late 40's/early 50's, do it, too.  

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

I prefer pen, but use a mechanical pencil quite a bit, too.  

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

I don't think I have one.

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

I don't have any of those, either.  

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

I have participated in four during the course of my life, and none of them served either of those purposes.  The intent was to declutter but I discovered it's much easier and less of a pain to just haul the stuff to Goodwill.  I think my lifetime yard sale earnings to-date are about $45.

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.

I think I did a squat back in 8th grade for the national get going (or something) campaign in the schools!

Bawahhhaaa...they REALLY help though. I see a difference after doing them even though I hate them. lol

Kickboxing??  Ouch!  Better you than me. ;)

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

That's one of the things my trainer has been working on with me - heavy lifting squats.  She went to a powerlifting tournament a few months ago and came back all excited about me doing heavy lifting, lol.   I've been planning to start the "30 day squat challenge" that's going around, but I'm having trouble getting started.</p><p> </p>

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. ;)

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.
