I am A-lister

alternative heading - I spend 2 hours a day making and and reviewing lists.

I am a compulsive list maker. Lists of all kinds – everyday to-do, weekend to-do , grocery to-buy, monthly to-do, to-cook, home-improvement to-do, paperwork to-do, to-read, to-watch [like banged up abroad on nat geo], and also the to-not's – to-not eat, to-not waste, to-not buy, to-not browse [the time suckers at work – dailymail, fb] etcetera, etcetera.

I also like reading weird facts, so here goes... apparently most bloggers are habitual list makers. :D or is that the rest go unblogged?

I really function better when I make lists of all kinds. And there's no greater thrill than striking things off the list. So, in anticipation of that thrill, I get things done, I utilize time better, I spend money more wisely... let's just say I live better. And if FEMINA chooses to ask... Does it make me a better person? I guess it does. With lists I feel I am in control. So when my control issues are taken care of, I become someone better to hang out with. So, yeah lists make me a better person. :D

Making lists is my little indulgence, so just any paper or pen won't do . Nothing fancy here, but I like to use gel pens... in brilliant colours... turquoise blue, pinks or the grayish black. Ballpoint pens are no good. Paper needs to be un-ruled [does it imply I am unruly?] and soft on my pen and face. Yeah, I feel the paper against my face :), let's call it the face-it or the face-off, shall we? I am also into yellow paper, the not-old-but-look-vintage kind of paper, these only come ruled, and I am okay with that.

Clearly, the digital post-it in whatever version isn't an option. Because rubbing my face against the computer screen would be plain hideous.
