I was tagged by remisims 

A. List ten habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
B. Tag ten people to do the same. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it." And if I tag you, you're obliged to go through with this. ( I am not tagging anyone)

1. I don't forward chain email messages and delete most emails that start with FW: without opening them unless they come from my husband or parents.

2. I become emotionally attached to things and people very easily.

3. I have not yet left the 80s in my head.

4. I have more Wil Wheaton tracks in my iTunes than any of the musicians I listen to (this actually surprised me). These were all downloaded off his site or paid for books he did audio recordings of.

5. I have to have everything "just so" which occasionally drives Kevin crazy because he does not put things back from where he got them. All clothing are in order by type of item down to length of sleeve or pant leg, then by color within each category. Books in order by genre, then author last name, then order of release. Music in order of Artist name and then order of release. iTunes drives me crazy because I cannot do a multiple sort the same way as our CD shelves.

6. I like formatting my computer and feel compelled to format it on a regular bases. I am trying to resit this temptation while I play my current round of Sims stories and learning experiments but once this is done it will most likely be formatted again.

7. I want to learn french. I have been trying since high school and I am now in my 30s, I still cannot do more than say bonjour, count to ten and say certain colors. I can read basic french (1st grade) but my cannot pronounce anything.

8. I am good at writing instruction manuals, bad at writing stories.  I am trying to learn how to write things with a coherent plot for more than one post. Blossoming Heart Legacy and Mraz/Bushwalla series, my husband helps a lot.

9. My greatest thrill in life is from making my brother laugh and finding things he would think are really cool, because he tries really hard not to find things funny or cool (or at least he acts like he finds nothing funny or cool). When I find something I think he will like, I buy and send it to him for his birthday or Christmas. I am usually successful.

Part of Princess Bride shirt that made him really laugh out-loud.

10. Sometimes I my health issues make me wonder if it would be a good thing not to wake up from sleeping. Most days this is not a problem, but on the really bad days where basically all I can do is lay in bed with a sleep mask on and my head feels like it has disconnected from my body, I sometimes think, I just wish it would end. Kevin does know about this and is always there for me when I have these really bad days.
2, me too. I'm a sentimental hoarder. I get that from my mom. Sometimes it's a good thing. Our house/space suffers for it, though. :P

5, I have to have all of my music sorted by artist and album on my mp3, with all the correct naming. I can't stand people who keep their computer files in a mess. I usually spend a good part of the time when I'm on the family computer, organising everything. And 6, I'm like that with my USBs. I get overly paranoid about virus' on them, So whenever I have to use them, I usually do a quick format/virus scan.

Hehe, I'm a manual writer too. I'm better at straight forward writing than creative. I cannot for the life of me, write an essay.

I agree with the making people laugh thing. I love making my sister laugh. It's pretty hard to do, she's so witty. But I made her almost cry laughing last night. That made me sooo happy. :)

You're one of my heroes, truly. I can only wish you better health! Us weird, internet-dwelling people care about you. :) I really hope the new medication will help, and that the side effects will be as minimal as possible. *Sends meaningful internet hugs*
5. You would faint if you saw Kevin's iTunes list; there is quite a large group of tracks with no names or artists at all and some where all of the info is in the track name. I have been moving everything to a "jukebox computer" we bought specifically with that in mind on the cheap and having to try and figure out what songs are and where they came from. Sometimes I am not sure what is the title and what is the album name because he listens to some music I don't although fortunately most of our taste does overlap. It is a long process, but it gives me something to do that feel productive even if it isn't actually that hard.

Thank you, that is so sweet. The neurologist I saw today does think that I may be having partial seizures that aren't showing up on EEG tests. He thinks giving the new medicine six weeks should be enough time to tell if any side-effects will wear-off, assuming I have them (which based on history is a pretty safe bet) and he wants us to follow up with him in two weeks because if the migraines have not eased up within two weeks then he will take me off this one and we will review and look for another one.

Fortunately I have a really great and understanding group of doctors and nurses helping me at Kaiser (health system where all of my medical issues are being seen after). They have done a lot to help support me with this and I am really glad I have the doctors and nurses looking after me that I do.
