1. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
2. Tag seven people to do the same.
3. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag whoever wants to do it.

Okay... let's see what I can come up with this time...

1. I own a cursed donkey figure. Okay, so it isn't officially cursed or anything like that. It's just that after I got it, and had it sitting on my shelf, stuff started to disappear. Like library books, my student ID, clothing, etc. So, I wrapped donkey in an old dish towel and stashed it under my bed. I haven't had any bad luck since! 
In case you're wondering, the donkey is about five inches tall, seated, and made of bone-coloured resin. It also has an extremely evil expression on it's face... O_o I'll have to take a picture some day.

2. I believe that dream catchers work, for me, at least. I got one as a gift several years ago, and hung it over my bed. I didn't have a bad dream for over six months. Then I had a bad dream every night for a week, until I got another dream catcher. I'm been through about five of them so far, and even if it's just a psychosomatic thing, it works and I'm not complaining.

3. I want to make a graphic novel (comic book) version of Leroux and Kay's PotO's some day. I won't be able to do that until I can get my drawing proportions more 'standardized'. Otherwise each panel will look like it has completely different characters, rather than the same several ones.

4. I almost never go to see movies at the theatre. The only ones I've seen in the last six years were the last four Harry Potter movies, and Star Wars III (my second-youngest brother's idea).

5. I really really want a Doctor Who action figure. The one of the 10th Doctor, wearing 3-D glasses. The reason I haven't managed to get one yet is that (to my knowlege) they are only available in England, and a single store in New York City. And most of the people on eBay.co.uk don't ship to America. There is one site that sells to America, but they don't have the one with glasses. Darn...

6. I once had a goldfish that lived for nearly two years. I won it at my little brothers' school fair. It was unofficially named 'Charlie', after Charlie Chaplin, because it had a black mark on it's lip, like a mustache. We didn't actually call it that, though, because it would have gotten on the nerves of my brother, who is also named Charlie. 

7. I have had 'my' copy of Kay's Phantom checked out from the library for 14 months straight. I just make sure to renew it every two weeks, and hope that no one else puts a hold on it. So far they haven't. The librarians say that I get the first chance to buy the book when they decide to discard it.

I tag theatregeek_393, brambyj109, damadenegro13, and hameat


By the way, the store that my family used to volunteer at... My mom bought it! So, I'm going to be spending a lot of time here. Thank goodness for wireless internet!

Yay!

My new laptop power cord came today! I am typing on my own keyboard, listening to my music
I was so happy when I saw the UPS truck stop in front of our house. More good news: I'm also getting a new laptop battery! Those, aparrently, are also covered by my warranty. Just goes to show that sometimes it is worth it to have the $200 warranty. 

It's a really good thing that the cord came today.... the Wii batteries died last night, and I was going to have to try typing on my other brother's PSP...

Now, let's finish up the rest of that tag:

Ten things you don't know about me: Continued
6. If I get a piece of jewelry, I wear it until it literally breaks off. That's what's happened to two bracelets, three rings, and a necklace. 
7. I've been known to 'borrow' Harry Potter promotional displays from stores... Nah, I'm just really good friends with the employees... (except for that one countdown sign from Toys 'R' Us... 
8. When I was five, I was obsessed with My Fair Lady. Watched it every day (it was the only video we had)
9. My favourite animals are Armadillos and Quetzals
10. I wear size 10 shoes

Now, it's time for me to catch up with nearly a week's worth of not being online...
