What type of Fae are you?

From augustfading and aditu_az

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.

1 - I can't sit properly in office chairs. It doesn't make a good impression when a supervisor is sitting either with one knee up or cross-legged (Indian style), but hey - since when did I care about making a good impression at work? *g*

2 - When I'm driving I always have to have a photograph somewhere I can see it. I dunno why. Guess I'm just strange like that! (Doesn't have to be a family photo or anything, in fact in my car right now is a Steve photo.)

3 - I only seem to wear jewellry in order to play with it. My ring, my sleeper-hoop earings, my necklace. I fiddle with them all the time. (And if I wear metal jewellry it has to be silver. I'm not allergic to anything else, I just only like to wear silver.)

4 - I have an odd almost OCD thing with digital clocks. When the number shows something like 1:11 or 2:22 or something like that, I can't look away until it changes. I can't even blink.

5 - I can usually read a new language after only minimal exposure to it, but it takes *forever* for me to be able to speak it. (I've been reading and writing Italian for about ten years now but my spoken accent sucks out loud!)

6 - I don't trust compliments. I get embarrassed about them really easily and then I try to read an ulterior motive into them.

7 - I screen my phone calls all the time. I tend to answer anyway, but I still screen them.

Tagging... lemme see... I have to tag seven people? Okay then...

xander_eod, connor_eod, vi_eod, anya_eod, nhamo_eod, faith_misplaced and lost_lawyer. *grins* (yes, I'm taking objection to rule number 3. I'm tagging seven LJ accounts, I know the owner of those seven LJ accounts pretty well... I should do really. Since it's me. (dude, did I really have five characters on the go at End Of Days? Bloody hell... no wonder I was so tired all the time!)) Anyone else wants to do this - feel free!

(not feeling too great right now because of some of the stuff that means my life happens to suck beyond the telling of it, would appreciate fic recs of all kinds. *bats eyelashes*)

Dude... why do I do this to myself? _end_of_days had a helluva lot of great storylines going on in it, and the ones I was involved in were kinda awesome. So of course now I clicked on a couple of those links right there and found myself getting dragged right back into the stories and I want to finish them! Xander's adverse reactions to magic, Vi's struggle with drugs and her possession by the spirit of the First Slayer, Connor's insecurities and his bizarre connection with Dawn, Anya's fear at being back from the dead for all the wrong reasons, Nhamo's wonder and frustration at all these youngsters and her continuing visions...

I wanna write it.

Yay! I'm not completely alone in my strangeness!

It's a little odd when my neighbour across the road calls and I'm screening, because I'm fairly sure she can see me with my hand over the phone listening to the message before I pick up... but then, I'm strange. She knows this. *grins*

(I put the pleccie on a necklace! I love it! I'm trying so hard not to fiddle with it because it'll end up falling off and then I'd lose it and be distraught, but it's tough!)

I... don't do compliments. You know this by now. *grins*

well, there's also this thing I do with ornaments and picture frames and odd and even numbers... but I don't want to turn you into a massive ball of OCDs so I'll just leave it at that!
