[Thoughts] Ten Facts and Five Things
Oh, I almost forgot about this! disposableninja tagged me for this a few days ago. I've done a meme similar to this in the past, but I won't look at it until I finish this. We'll see if I duplicate anything accidentally.

Each player of this game starts off with 10 weird things/habits/little-known facts about yourself. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 10 weird habits/things/little-known facts as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you need to choose 10 people to be tagged and list their names. No tagbacks.
  1. When sleeping, I'm usually most comfortable on my side, curled up in a little ball, in order to keep as warm as possible.
  2. I collect coins that are either A) foreign, B) modified/mangled/mutilated in some way, or C) minted in my birthyear (1984). Working as a cashier, I see more than a few of these.
  3. I have an enormous tin foil ball on top of my refrigerator, which has been with me (the foil ball, not the refrigerator) since middle school. Some time soon I'll post a photo of it, since Indigo ♥ gave me a digicam for Christmas.
  4. 95% of my purchases are done using my debit card. I save every receipt in my wallet, then input the transactions in Microsoft Money a handful at a time.
  5. I drink a lot of water when I'm at home. I have a gallon-sized jug of water sitting in the fridge, and I fill my water bottle from that every time it gets empty.
  6. On my computer desk, I have (from left to right): an HP scanner, my phone and the cord to its AC adapter, a Motorola cable modem, my computer's flatscreen monitor, the receiver for my cordless keyboard and mouse, an old Compaq PDA in its charger, and the Saitek gamepad faetan gifted me with.
  7. My favorite dessert is white chocolate cheesecake, for which my mother has a delicious recipe. My second favorite dessert is pumpkin pie.
  8. I have a lot of stuffed animals, for some reason. Among them are a bear that I've had since childhood, a griffin, a ferret, two chocobos, a hedgehog, a mallard, and Dilbert. (Yes, really.)
  9. When I'm writing, fiction or non-fiction, I often pause to read what I've written aloud to myself. This lets me make sure it sounds good to the ear, and makes it easier to check for typos.
  10. My favorite color is blue. (This one's not exactly little-known, but I'm kinda straining for ideas, heh.)
And now, five good things.

1) Work went smoothly and pleasantly today.
2) Getting in another YAH MUX scene, for the first time in a while. I have neglected poor Ishida.
3) Getting a little work done on my personal art page. Nothing there yet, but the most basic of basics are there.
4) Getting some work done on some fanfiction I started recently. (I'm great at beginning projects. Finishing them, not so much.)
5) Tomorrow I have the day off!

I started to like mutilated coins last time I was at work.

I still have a few which had been run over a few times which I kept on my desk, wrapped up in a post-it.
