Six Quirks Meme

K tagged me with this, and against my better judgment, I'm going ahead with it.

The Rules:
  • Link the person(s) who tagged me
  • Mention the rules on my blog
  • Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of mine
  • Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them
So here it is, my all-time, top 6 unspectacular quirks, in whatever order they occur to me:
  1. I avoid walking on cracks or lines in the floor - I do give myself a dispensation for lines that intersect and create an open space smaller than my shoe
  2. I'm fanatical about my CDs and DVDs - I can't stand fingerprints or other such things on them, and when I loan them out I always fear that they will come back dirty, even more so than I fear that I won't get them back
  3. I seem to have the uncanny ability to read any book without breaking the spine
  4. High Fidelity was actually a life-altering movie for me
  5. I always squeeze the tube of toothpaste from the bottom up and it drives me crazy when people visit and squeeze it in the middle
  6. I've probably only read about 60% - 70% max of the books I own - I guess the unread ones represent the me I want to be rather than the me I am, otherwise I'd have read them already.
So, I've tagged the following:

I was telling everyone at work about how there's a Pearl Jam song I love, even though I don't know any of the lyrics or the name. I call it "Stop the Wombat!" When I admittted I had no idea what a wombat was, someone pulled up this image:

I don't know why, but it made me very happy. I really want a wombat now - even though it must be stopped.
