What is it with the m&m weirdness? You are the fourth or fifth person I've read who has an m&m ritual of some sort.

And I always wanted Gibson girl hair.

J. Edgar Hoover???? Now that is weird:)

I have to eat M&Ms by color, and always the green ones last. So I can relate to your M&M weirdness. :) And I also was a sleepwalker (related to #3) for a while, around junior high.

Fascinating stuff! Thanks for playing along!

I'd vote for charming and quirky. This was such a great list!! I LOOOVED the jail survival plan.

I do the m&m thing too, but I really prefer for them to be the same color (2 greens, 2 reds, whatever). It's so good to know I'm not the only weird person out there!

WN, you are way cool - this list is great! I have a similar weird thing with Skittles - they have to be even in my mouth and I eat them by color, leaving the best colors for last - I reject all purple Skittles...

Well, as for J. Edgar Hoover, I was so obsessed with him and organized crime as a kid that I ended up writing my diss and my first book about them.

And yes, everyone has an M & M ritual -- mine was always to eat all the brown ones first, then eat selectively so that there were even numbers of all the other colors, then eat in descending order of prettiness: yellow, red, orange, green. Now that they have added blue I don't know what to do.

As for the prison anxiety -- I have this fantasy that I would be able to read non-stop. But the clothes are icky, they don't let you shower every day, and then there are the involuntary sexual activities.

Wow, I was just thinking of Betsy-Tacy today. I'm going to have to dust those off and read them again! Maybe this time I'll actually finish the last book in the series, which I never quite understood as a little girl. :)

Oh, these are definitely charming more than deranged -- except for #4. M&Ms should be eaten One At A Time! You freak.
