5. A habit you find disgusting.
Spitting. *grosses out*

6. Something in school you really liked doing that everyone else bitched over.
I dunno, taking notes? I love to write stuff out longhand (I used to fill whole pages full of consecutive numbers for no reason, and also copy whole chapters of books), so I took a lot of notes in school. If I’d only studied them more often I’d have gotten better grades.

11. A sport you really like, for whatever reason.
(Copied from the answer I gave ravingliberal )
Baseball, specifically *watching*, precisely for the reasons some people *don’t* like it. Baseball watching is full of inning changes and pitching changes and seventh-inning stretches that give plenty of time to socialize, to get up and walk around and stuff. And it’s suspenseful when the bases are loaded and the Sox are winning or just might be if all the runs come through, and so very awesome if there’s a walkoff homerun that cinces the game. And watching baseball at Fenway Park, OMG, is as close to a religious experience as this atheist chick is gonna get. I’ve been a Sox fan since I was six. So. Much. Fun.

4. A hobby you “don’t get”.
Taxidermy. Because ew. I was gonna say golf, but taxidermy is worse.

12. Television programs you love but have gotten shit for liking.
The Walking Dead, oddly. People who have seen it? No, but if they haven’t, they’re all, “sorry, don’t do zombies”, and no amount of explaining will make them listen. Also anything on CSPAN. Especially if I tell them it’s CSPAN 2 or 3.
