Six Weird Things Meme

Christmas knitting continues and can't be shown (and I just realized I wrapped and mailed one thing that I forgot to photo! RATS!) so ...Someone finally got me with this 6 weird things meme, and it's a slow morning so here goes:
1. I collect Whimsiclay Cat Pins. Oh heaven, there's a Christmas one that I must have missed - black kitty with Christmas lights around her neck. I am obsessed with finding her, I think she's retired and I don't know her name...There's a Sparkie who's in the same pose and is a white kitty, but I don't have the black one (a tuxedo cat, if I'm remembering correctly). But I'm wearing my Peppermint right now! They are starting to take over my jewelry chest.
edited to add: this is my favorite vendor for Whimsiclay, Cat's A Purrin'
2. I'm scrupulously organized in my day-job work environment, but paper is overwhelming me in my home office. What IS it about that?
3. I'm ultra sensitive to odors and fragrances. Natural scents (like lavender and rose) I can tolerate (except musk) but everything else sends me into a tail-spin of migraine and sinus infection.
4. I'm never going to make the classification of "advanced knitter" because I have no desire to knit a sweater. I don't wear sweaters all that much ("is it hot in here?") but lace shawls are another thing...
5. In spite of my current "big girl" size, I used to be a ballerina. I studied ballet for 22 years. My toes still turn out when I walk.
6. I remain loyal long after it's healthy or wise for me to do so. It's either one of my strongest points, or one of my worst failings, depending on what we're talking about. I still take my shoes to the same shoe shop for repair, and my hair stylist is still the woman who was my first boss when I worked in an upscale salon as a senior in high school. Those are good things. But I hang on to bad relationships, outgrown and dated clothing, and other habits long after it's smart.

Ok. Anyone who wishes can do this - I won't tag you specifically!

Aw, jeez! You just had to put a link in to those Whimsiclay kitties didn't you?

Excuse me while I go hyperventilate. ;-)

#3 is totally me, although I can't even tolerate most natural fragrances, alas...

The Whimsiclay Cats are so cute! No wonder you're addicted to them!

Those kitties are adorable! Oh no, I'm feeling the urge to start collecting, too. : )

Not weird at all! And I'm with you on #3 - especially in small spaces, like a crowded bus or an elevator. My own personal episode of "As the Stomach Turns."

Re: #5, that just sounds simply charming! I was friends with a "big girl" ballerina in college and I always loved the way she walked. So graceful.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
