Ok, somebody just tagged me (it was Chuck) and now I have to do this:

Rules: The 1st player of this "game" starts with the topic "5 weird habits of yourself" and people who get tagged need to write a blog entry about their 5 weird habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 5 people to be tagged and list their names.

Ok, here I go:

1-I'm right handed and wear my watch on my right wrist. (Most everyone else who's right handed wears their watch on their left wrist.)

2-I'm a private perfectionist (private meaning I keep it confined to myself because I've gotten enough beatings over it)

3-I'm a total beach freak - I actually get depressed when I can't get in any sun time. And, once I'm there, I absolutely hate it (it actually almost ruins my day)if someone spreads their blanket within 25 feet of me so I have to walk down the shore at least 300 ft before I can set up camp for the day. And I'm carrying about 40 lbs, too, between the cooler and backpack (towels,lotions, etc), chair and umbrella. (and I swear, I am NOT antisocial...)

4-I hate spiral ham hot, but love it cold. (don't ask me...)

5-I spend way too much money on stuff I don't need when I'm depressed.


Ok, my turn - I tag Rob (romac), Harry, Heather, Tanya and Autumn

What on earth is spiral ham? My mind is boggling just at the name.

That was fun to read. Interesting about the watch thingy. No sun, no fun, huh.

Cheers, Harry. heh. you made me laugh. Thank you. I definitely need to laugh more. I can't imagine how you imagine the thing looks.

Spiral ham is a piece of ham sliced in spirals so you don't have to slice it yourself. The meat comes off the bone looking like a ham steak, though cut thin. In the States you can buy the ham pre-cooked (so you just heat and eat) or you can cook it from raw. Most people here go for them in a big way. Personally, I think they taste too salty. I think that's why I like the meat cold betterm, as it loses some of that salty taste.

Here's a link to an image:

Hey, Harry? I see the link thing doesn't work for the image - you'll have to google spiral ham and check out the images if you want to appease your imagination.

I live and learn. Do you have any other mathematical foods, or is it just the ham?

Cheers, Harry, and Merry Christmas. I hope you have a wonderful holidays.

As far as mathematical food - Um, none that I can think of though there might be. I think we're responsible for the baker's dozen (a dozen plus one rolls)though I could be wrong. In the crazy USA, you just never know...

If anything else comes to me I'll post it here.

Bests,
Cookie

Hey Cookie,

I just came back from my holiday and was checking out some blogs when I read that you had been tagged me. Okay, I'll try to think of some weird stuff to post.

Autumn
P/S: Glad you had a good Christmas. And the ATC stuff sounds interesting. Good for you. Cheers.
