Once you are tagged you MUST write an entry about 6 weird habits/things you do as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next six people to be tagged and list their names.

1: I'm OCD about protecting my gadgets. When I buy a new gadget, say my iPod for example, I can easily spend as much on cases as I can on the device itself. For the iPod, I'm on case number six, and searching.

2: I have this nervous compulsion to constantly keep my hands clean. When I'm stressed, I will perpetually wash my hands. The thought of hand cream makes me cringe, since it makes my hands oily, and I'll have to wash them again. If any of my belongings are held by myself when I think my hands are dirty, they get a good cleaning too.

3: I collect fountain pens. To most, they think it's odd that I'd spend $100 on a pen, but I love the connection to history. It's tangible, it's antique, and the only antique that's actually worth MORE restored. I write with one every day as well, and they rotate...I will write with every one, from my Parker 51 ca. 1952, to my Parker Sr. Duofold Streamlined ca. 1927

4: I think the world is going to end. This causes weird behavior out of me to the point where I always have two pocket knives one me, constant survival knowledge...(just ask jone2tone) and a running inventory of where I can get a gun quickly.

5: I'm on a constant knowledge quest. I want to know everything about everything, and until I do, I'm going to think I'm dumb, or not good enough at anything I do...since there will always be better.

6: If something isn't overengineered for my usage, I will find something else. In the case of my cameras, I have to have a pro model to be happy, since I know it was designed to be punished. While I don't punish anything I own, I like to know that it will last longer than I need it to. Right now, I have an N80 that pretty much sits around, while I tote around an F3 manual focus camera ca. 1983, since it is more durable. Before the F3, I had an Olympus OM1 that died due to being sat on.

So, there you go. TMI, Jay style... here's who I'm tagging...
