Ouch...I've been Tagged

My first tag, and it had to be a Weird Habits meme from Moneybags at A Catholic Life.

The rules as they were passed on to me:

Rules: "The first player of this game starts with the topic "five weird habits of yourself," and people who get tagged need to write an entry about their five weird habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next five people to be tagged and link to their web journals. Don't forget to leave a comment in their blog or journal that says "You are tagged" (assuming they take comments) and tell them to read yours."

My wife thinks this is really funny. She's got all kinds of weird things I do that I refuse to publish. However, here are a few I don't mind sharing:

1. I only eat chocolate cake in a bowl with milk and a spoon (like cereal).
2. I'm a talk radio junkie.
3. I defrost the windows on my car every morning with a Kool-Aid pitcher of hot water.
4. I am a pen freak. I love pens.
5. And my wife says I blink at people when I am being sarcastic.

What happens when I have no one I know well enough to send it to? All the people I have met this past week have been tagged. Am I "it" forever? That happened to me once on the playground in grade school - I was the last one tagged and the recess was over. I was "it" for the rest of the day.

I'll send it to Jay at Pro Ecclesia. Sorry, Jay.

Hey, I also like pens. I have a small "collection" if you will of various pens. I really don't collect pens but just like them. I do however collect coins and that's always been a small hobby of mine.

I am unable, however, to keep any of them. My youngest (5 yo) has an affinity for them as well. I often find my favorite pens under the couch or in a purse in her room!

Thanks for the tag.

I've got plenty of "bad" habits, but I'm going to have to think about this one for a while to come up with my 5 "weird" habits.

I'll ask my wife - I'm sure she'll be able to tell me about more than just 5 "weird" habits that I have. I'll try to post them on my blog sometime tomorrow.
