Not a dream, but a, meme

Patricia at Communication Exchange tagged for a meme: 6 Unspectacular Quirks. The rules are as follows:
1. Link the person(s) who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about six unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag six following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged bloggers' blogs, letting them know they've been tagged.

I followed rules 1 and 2 above, so here goes #3.

*Due to the excessive rain and heat lately, my compost bin stinks. It's rotting at a record pace, which is good, I guess, but Phew, it's aromatic!
*I snore. I've taken to wearing a breathing strip on my nose at night, and it seems to help. Some. *I buy too many books. I read them all, none go to waste, but it's a weakness of mine.
*I speak a fair amount of Spanish, which is a handy skill for a teacher in my neighborhood where one third of the surnames on my class list are Mexican. Wonderful kids and families, by the way! *If I hadn't become a teacher, I would have become a nurse.
*When school is out for the summer, it takes me at least a week to adjust to sleeping a little later in the morning.

Trust me, it's painless. I tag:
Margalit, the creator of MidCentury Modern Moms at What was I Thinking?
Suburban Correspondent at The More, the Messier
Nina (my colleague at MCMM) at Voted off the Island
Ilona (another MCMM writer) at It's Not All Mary Poppins
Janice (yet another MCMM-er!) at Chasing Myself

Okay, that's five. Any other volunteers to make six? Leave a comment!

I'm with you on the sleeping later thing. During that week that I'm adjusting I stay in my pajamas. Seems to help.
