Six Weird Habits/Things About Yourself (Tagged by mayene)

The 1st player of this “game” starts with the topic “Six Weird Habits/Things About Yourself” and people who get tagged need to write a journal entry about their 6 weird habits/things as well as state this rule clearly.  In the end, you need to choose the next 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their comments and tell them to read yours….

  1. The second comfortable place I find to sleep is in my car.  (The first is, of course, in bed/on futon.)  I guess all the random roadtrips to Tahoe/Yosemite/LA brainwashed and warped my sense of comfort.  Like when I fell asleep in my car after parking it in front of my apartment; I was so tired and sleepy that I just decided to sleep in car rather than walk to the apartment and sleep in bed.  XD

  2. I quite often eat cooked rice by itself, without any sauce or side dish.  Just rice.  And it tastes good.  (I guess I inherited this one particular habit from Mom; she does the same thing all the time.)  XD

  3. When I play Spider Solitaire, one of the card games in Windows XP, I stick to the Easy Mode (with only one suite); my goal is not to beat the game, but to end up in a dead-end situation where there are less than 10 cards on the board so I cannot deal the next row of cards.  This can happen in four cases:

    • 4 suites completed in the initial round
    • 5 suites completed in the third round (i.e. after two deals)
    • 6 suites completed in the fourth round
    • 7 suites completed in the fifth round

    Luck is one of the most important factors in achieving this, as cards must be very evenly dealt out so that enough suites can be completed with minimal number of “garbage” cards.  In fact, while theoretically possible, I have so far been unable to achieve the first case (4 suites in the inital round); the probability to have the right combination of cards for this is very low (less than 0.1%).  It, therefore, has become my “ultimate goal” in Spider Solitaire, and I am going to quit playing the game for good if I achieve the goal.  XD

  4. I have a disproportionate amount of old music I am attached to.  And by “old” I mean music that used to be popular when I was a small kid, e.g. songs in The Sound of Music, Kimera's Lost Opera, and other random Korean pop music from early- to mid-80s.

  5. Probably due to my standing habit I have had since I was a small kid, which is to put most of my body weight on my left leg, my left leg is shorter than the right leg by half an inch or so.  I found it out about 10 years ago, while being measured for a custom suit.

  6. My mouth is very easily paralyzed by cold weather, to the point people mistake me as being drunk because of my pronunciation.  This is compounded by the fast speed of my speech, especially in Korean.
