We've been listening to Mumsdollar and Rapture Ruckus all week. It's not bad, having a daughter who spends part of her free time in teenage Christian circles, it helps my job! Steve's gone away so I have three days to do what I want to the house... *g* I was thinking about painting the front door for starters. Hmmmm. It's holidays but in the next few days I have to do quite a few big jobs for school as well as write an essay and finish creating Finn's bedroom. Not to mention writing for me. I wonder, maybe I need a timetable to keep me on track!

Last night Christy and Asher were grumpy with each other, but they both wanted to watch a movie, just couldn't choose something. So I chose - Class. In the end I went and watched with them. It's not a bad movie, and I watched as my children slowly melted and began to laugh (and gasp) along with the characters. And since Asher's been studying The Outsiders at school, we had to watch that movie too! I've been having some Rob Lowe time *g* I may have stopped following his career but I have to admit the old enjoyment of those '80s movies has never really gone away for me. It was a colourful time to grow up in. I started university in 1980. Gosh, that was a long time ago now! OMG!

Well, no one else is up yet so since I'm still on holiday, I might go do some writing while it's peaceful *g*

I came back as can't write while I eat breakfast. So I'm thinking, you know how they have those questionnaires that come out, and they say things like, oh I dunno, "tea or coffee" and you have to choose. I was eating a hot cross bun for breakfast, and I like the bottom half of the roll more than the top. Then I got thinking, do other people do that, so if you said, 'bread roll, top or bottom' would people know what you meant? I also like my crackers to be up the right way. And I have about four favourite coffee mugs, and I won't drink out of any of the others in our eclectic collection. But do some people just Not Care? Or do we all have a few things that seem important to us but not perhaps to many others... what little things are really important to you? Is it the cap on the toothpaste? See, that doesn't bother me at all.

Ka kite.

yes! Yes, yes, yes! I prefer the bottom of a roll too. And as for mugs, well, I have some that are for drinking tea from, some for drinking coffee from and some for drinking comfort drinks (hot chocolate, Horlicks etc) from. The wrong drink in the wrong mug really upsets me.

Also, I hate crumpling a piece of paper up, even if I'm just going to bin it: I have to fold it (unless I'm in a really stinkingly foul mood, in which case I screw up many bits of paper).

I'm sure I have many other delightful quirks, but I can't think of them off-hand: I tend to only notice them when I'm experiencing them.

Hooray, it's not just me!

Really? I loooove crumpling paper and firing it at the bin! I know I'm under stress if I miss the bin from my desk at the back of my classroom *g*

We probably have heaps if we took the time to identify them! My father always put his left sock on before the right, and was horrified to see I do the right sock first! He had some reason for the left one going first. I have no idea what that was now.
