Habits and Routine

In law, there is something called "evidence of habit."  Pursuant to Federal Rule of Evidence 406, "Evidence of the habit of a person...whether corroborated or not and regardless of the presence of an eyewitness, is relevant to prove that the conduct of the person ...on a particular occasion was in conformity with the habit or routine practice."

This got me thinking, what are my habits that could be admitted into evidence at trial?*

(1) I have to wash the sheets on our bed every Sunday so that we can start the week off with a good night's sleep on clean sheets. Not so weird, other then the fact that it has to be on a Sunday, not a Saturday. Even if I have time to wash them on Saturday I don't because I only want it done on Sunday.

(2) I have to hit my snooze button numerous times in the morning, so I set my alarm about thirty minutes before I actually wake up. Okay an hour. Yes, my husband hates me.

(3) On Friday night, I don't go out. Even when I try, I rarely make it. I am just too tired. Instead, I eat asian food, drink a margarita, and fall asleep on the couch at around 8:30 p.m.

(4) The first thing I do on Monday morning is download the newest This American Life episode to listen to on my way to work.

(5) During the week, I bring my lunch and eat the same thing everyday. Yogurt for breakfast, string cheese for a snack, turkey sandwich for lunch, string cheese for a snack, and two bottles of water.

(6) I have to curl my hair before I apply my make-up.

(7) ever since I got my new car, the first thing I do every Saturday morning is vacuum it out so that I can have a clean car all weekend (this is necessary because Kadira sheds like crazy and is in my car everyday).

(8) I drink coffee every Saturday morning out of the Starbucks mug I bought in London when I was studying abroad.

(9) The first thing I do when I get to work is check out the MSN homepage top news stories.

(10) I never wear my wedding rings when I am at home. 

What are some of your weird habits?

*Very tongue and cheek.  I realize most of these are not admissible evidence of habit.

Love this! I think the little idiosyncrasies like this make life interesting.

So why don't you wear your wedding rings at home, may I ask?
