Kat over at Candles, Crafts and Whatnot tagged me. So cool to be meeting new bloggers via Entrecard.

So you're stuck with eight random facts about me.

1) I'm a horrible sleeper. I'm restless, turn constantly (when I had long hair I had to put it up because it kept trying to strangle me), flip my pillow to get to the cold side (does anyone else do this?) and have stretches where I can't sleep much at all.

2) I'm also an incorrigible morning person. Usually cheerful in the morning. But past 11:00 at night I'm not terribly pleasant.

3) I really don't do movies. You know how some people are restless and can't read for very long stretches? I can't seem to sit through a movie without occupying myself otherwise somehow.

4) I'm kind of the same with TV, although I make an exception for Heroes (I still chainmaille during the show though)

5) I'm a nerd. I need to do a whole post on this, but in addition to my Renaissance geekiness, on weekends I play D&D or Star Wars RPG. I used to be addicted to Guild Wars but I substituted an addcition to making jewelry. I think it's more productive. I don't LARP, though.

6) I read the Lord of the Rings trilogy at least once a year and have read the Silmarillion, or parts of it, several times. I also keep coming back to other beloved series: Dune (Frank Herbert), A Song of Ice and Fire (George R.R. Martin), the Assassin/Live ship books (Robin Hobb), and the Outlander series (Diana Gabaldon). I want to re-read the Foundation series some time soon. In between all of these I read books I've never read before. I don't have an attention deficit problem with reading :)

7) Whenever I lie on the couch I usually have an average of 2 cats lying on me.

8) I'm anal retentive about cleaning out my keyboard. It never looks like I am, though.

There, that's me. Here's the rules:

1. Each blogger starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged and to read your blog.
5. For the recipients, leave a comment for the person who tagged you, so they can go and read your answers.

Here are my peeps!
1) The Costumer
2) Theresa's Treasures
3) Delavande (I tagged her before but I don't think she did it)
4) A Rose By Name
5) Five O'Clock Somewhere
6) Spotted Cow Soaps
7) The Copper Cauldron
8) Rose Works Jewelry

My apologies if this has been thrown at you several times. This is my second but since I have a lot of new bloggy friends, I figured I'd do Take 2. :)

I had a lot of fun reading this! I probably won't fill it out this time (too much going on!) but thanks for the honor of tagging me!

I'm similar on one, though I find I sleep really well on the couch during the day! And yes, I flip my pillow, too! I am completely opposite on two.

I'm going to have to think about this one! I have done one of these but it was a while ago! Thanks for thinking of me!

Thanks for playing along!

I loved reading your answers. And I'm not such a good sleeper either, so I can relate.

I really do love your work, I have only done a few chainmaille pieces, but I am in awe of your creations!

Take care,

All done, just tagged my taggees. Hopefully a few will play.
