First Crusader Challenge

It’s time for the first Crusader Challenge. Okay, I’ll play.

Secret: Sometimes I surf the Internet while I’m working. Shhh. In my defense, I only do so when I have to, such as while watching a movie for the 5th time. And only if I’m not having behavior issues. I have to do something or else I might lose my mind.

Interesting quirk/annoying habit: Which is which? I’m not sure, so I’ll let you decide.

I use “big words” all the time. (I had no idea what fuliguline meant, but I had heard the word bloviate before.) This annoys the students, but most of the time I don’t realize I’m doing it. Someone has to tell me, and then I don’t understand. “That was a ‘big word’?”

I have to load the dishwasher in a specific way, and I will pull things out and put them back to make sure that it’s loaded “correctly”. The cups have a specific order, the knife blades must be aligned, and the plates have only one spot they can be in.

As for a best character trait… I have no idea. I’m not good at praising myself. It’s so bad that back in the 4th grade when we had a writing assignment called “What is special about me,” I couldn’t do it. I stared at that paper for an hour, and I didn’t write a thing. It was the only assignment that I didn’t do that year. So, sorry, I can’t answer that one.

Favorite thing: I love to make things. I love the feeling of accomplishment when I have a finished object. I make many of my Christmas presents, like this past year I made a soft rabbit-shaped pillow for my baby nephew.

I may have revealed something about me that isn’t strictly true. Can you guess what it is?

  2. I'm that way about loading the dishwasher, too. Only the plates and dishes have to be upright, they can't be falling over. I don't care too much about the order. ;)

    As for your lie, I'd say you knew what fuliguline meant, if you really do love big words.

  3. I am wondering if the paper that did not get done was not the only assignment that didn't get done that year. Just guessing!

  4. Very good. Hmmm...I'll say the rabbit pillow for your nephew. That seems convient. That's my guess.

    Nice to meet you crusader. I'm totally going to have to take a look at the earrings for sell over there--->

  6. I'm very specific when it comes to loading the dishwasher also. I'm guessing the lie is that you like using big words.

  7. Nice to meet you. Aww... you ARE special. You need to figure out what it is, cuz there is definitely something. Like, you're crafty. Unless, that's what is false. ;)

  8. I don't know what the lie is, I hope it's not the dishwasher because I do that >.<

  9. I load the dishwasher back to front; in other words, the first dirty glass goes all the way to the back of the upper rack, then the second in front of it, and so on. I'll bet your fib is the pillow you made for your nephew was of another animal, but you had to use "rabbit" so slipped it in there.

    Thanks for the follow, and I look forward to crusading together!

  10. Hello fellow crusader! I am a tad bit late, the whole house has been sick all week. So, I just thought I would pop in and just say Hi! :D

  11. I'm a bit obsessive with the dishwasher loading myself so that couldn't possibly be your lie. I am going to guess that you don't actually make your Christmas presents.

  12. Wow, this was a really tough one! You hid your lie perfectly. I believe the dishwasher one. I'm not allowed to load ours, because I don't do it correctly. So, I guess I'll have to pick that you were able to come up with something for that paper, even if it took you a long time.

  13. I guess that you already knew what fuliguline meant!
