I dun been tagged

I was tagged by speccygeekgirl

A - list 7 habits/quirks/facts
B - tag 7 people to do the same
C - don't tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag 'whoever wants to do it'

1. I put my pants on two legs at a time. This is not a metaphor but it could be!

2. I don't have any friends in real life who understand or are involved in fandom. I would KILL to find someone in Seattle who likes iCarly and isn't underage. If I could craft iCarly theme girly drinks I'd be on cloud 9. I tried to befriend some local Star Trek fangirls but none of them clicked for me. Seattle is one of the geekiest cities in the country, maybe the world, and I don't know why fandom remains so stigmatized here. I mean, we've got a board game group on every corner and in every coffeeshop, my neighborhood has people who wear *cloaks* to buy *groceries*, it's really nerdy here! So why don't people talk about the tv shows they like? :/

3. I'm snooty about grammar and things but in probably a more specific way than you think I am. See, you can spell things poorly and I won't mind that much (although, hello, auto-spellcheck, for god's sake!) and you can utilize poor sentence structure and all I'll do is point it out and move on. But if you don't know how to punctuate correctly, I judge you. I judge you HARD. Don't you know that a SPACE belongs after a comma? Don't you know that apostrophes imply ownership or a conjunction? If you put two spaces after each sentence, it's an antiquarian affectation, but if you can't remember how to use a semicolon correctly, you're an asshole. Yeah, I don't know why I'm like this, either.

4. Secretly, my favorite tv show is the Adventures of Hercules. I own it all on box set. Don't judge me!

5. I have a secret sockpuppet journal. No, I won't tell you what it is. However, I promise that it's only used for good and not evil.

6. Instead of coffee, I drink very black Russian Caravan tea with honey, almost every day.

7. I didn't really know how to read until I was almost 8!

Screw you, B&C, you don't say I can just not tag ANYBODY! Tagging is for people who suspect the people on their flist don't hate them.

I have an antiquarian affectation. I was a rebellious middle schooler who tried to resist things my typing teacher told me to do, like use the shift key instead of the capslocks any time I wanted to start a new sentence/write a proper noun, or to put two spaces after every sentence, but in the end, my will was no match for the relentless repetition of her keyboarding exercises, and I fell prey to all her tyrannical "affectations".

...I think I still have unresolved issues over that.

so sometimes i only respond to some comments on my posts and not others but that's because i actually have something to say in response and then i worry that the people i DONT respond to are mad at me and think i don't like them or didnt read their comment when i DO and i DID so anyway hi i am responding to you *breathes*

...being affected is endearing, a lot of the time.

Maybe I should move to Seattle! Hm.

I don't think I want you to beta for me every again after that number 3.

Yes you should.

You punctuation is fine.

::shrug:: I'm a late bloomer!

I knew sort of how to read but it was SUPER SUPER HARD. I was extreeeemely shy, so whenever they made me read out loud in class i was crippled with fear. And I was never interested in almost anything we had to read for school. Finally some time around 7 years old it clicked and I started to read *voraciously*, but before that I struggled with it. I would sit and read and think i was understanding it, but I had definite reading comprehension problems. In fact, that's why I wasn't in the gifted and talented special classes when I lived in Texas (we moved to Virginia when I turned 8.) Anyway, obviously, I made up for lost time.

I was always an extremely good color-er, though.
