5 Wierd Things About Me


I know I said I wanted to stop tagging, but after reading Michelle's responses I thought her a bit of a wierdo light weight and have to teach her the true meaning of wierd:

  1. I waited in line all morning for tickets to one of the new Star Wars movies. Watching Empire Strikes back and talking sci-fi and fantasy all morning. And I enjoyed it!
  2. I have eaten eel, aligator, and haggis.
  3. I didn't start drinking alocohol until I was almost 30.
  4. While in highschool I spent every saturday night with my friends playing dungeons and dragons.
  5. I am 3 inches shorter than my sister. But since I shave my head and she has very curly hair it looks at least like 5.

So take that. Think you can do better? Consider yourself tagged!

I am no light weight sir but I'm happy I didn't have to officially tag you. BTW, I am 5 inches taller than one sister and 4 inches taller than the other. Oh yeah baby.

I'm about to expose my weirdness

1. I love checking out bathroom products in hotels.
2. I vaccum my window panes
3. I call my cat "baby waybe"
4. when I was watering my garden with my hose, I heard my neighbour over the fence and I splashed water on their side of the fence to see if I got a reaction.
5. I wear odd socks.

Im a weirdo

But I'm a guy, guys aren't supposed to be shorter than their sisters.

Ewww! Haggis! I don't care if you considered it to taste good. The sheer notion of eating it scares me.

I might have to do this one later.

I'm so sad I've been delisted... oh well. I appreciate that I was up for a short while at least.

5 weird things:
1) I dislike food touching on my plate and I will eat only one section at a time.
2) I once rewrote everything in my daytimer because I didn't think it was done neatly enough.
3) Never been to England nor do I know anyone from there, but I apparently have a bit of a British accent b/c I speak so clearly (even Delirious - the band - made fun of me for it... not joking - totally serious).
4) I love fried pickles.
5) I regularely switch from extreme extrovert to extreme introvert and go from seeing friends every night of the week to not talking to any of them for weeks at a time.

I didn't de-list you, I was trying to fix the look of my blog but didn't know what I was doing and lost all my links. I couldn't remember your blog address, now I don't have to. You are back on.

I am not sure that this qualifies, but I posted some time ago on idiosyncresies, so it is close:

1. I only eat Altoids two at a time. Never one, never three...two! I am not sure why. Someone once asked me and I made up some story about it reminding me of Christ's hypostatic union.

2. I use hair products from the 1950's...specifically I use Black and White pomade. I have to special order it. If it was good enough for Elvis Presley, it is more than good enough for me. If I am going for a more extreme look, I tend to use American Greaser Supply 90 wt flat top wax. I use break this out for my pomps or when going to a show, as it makes my hair stand really high. I also still use a shaving cup, cake and brush rather than shaving cream.

3. I am obsessed with shoes. I know...not something I am proud of! My favorite pair of shoes are white triple soled Creepers.

4. I straighten picture frames and wall hangings in public places and in the homes of other people. If there is a frame that is not level, I feel very uncomfortable and will stare at it endlessly, essentially closing off everything happening around me until it is straight. This once led an administrator at my university asking what the hell I was doing.

5. I hate styrofoam. Seriously. The sound that styrofoam makes is enough to make me become violent. I have been known to yell at people if their styrofoam cups make noise. And those people who buy styrofoam coolers should be shot. And don't get me started on having to open boxes packed with the stuff. My stomach is hurting just thinking about that noise.

In answer to your questions earlier; After school if I pass with the grades I'm hoping for I want to go to university and study Psychology. I'm not too sure what after that but along the lines somewhere certainly to get married and stuff.
I have one brother called Lee and he is two years younger than me.

For my five weird things:

1. I have this paranoia that I'm being watched by cameras in toilets so I try not to move or do anything abnormal.

2. I often talk to myself

3. I can't touch spunge

4. When eating I have to leave at least one thing - ie if eating chips I can't eat all the chips even if I'm still hungry.

5. I freak out if people pick at their nails, or if I can hear people whispering it causes my adrenaline to rise and my heart to start pounding as if I'm ready for attack.

Michelle,
Sorry, you can't compete. I got 32 years of dork experience.

Miller & Lutherpunk,
What's up with people and food fobias? I can't order an odd number of anything. If I go to mcdonalds I need to get an even number of burgers.

Spider,
I don't think your feer of toilets is unfounded. They actually make videos of that sort of thing. eeew.

Dorkside,
I hated haggis, it was so fowl, but I loved the other stuff.

Cube Heads appear to be a bunch of wierdos.

I can really relate to Therealmiller's list, but here's mine:

1. I afraid of furnaces, especially at night. The heat or air conditioning must be off while I sleep. There's just something about the humming . . .

2. I am afraid of the Earth becoming overpopulated and getting knocked out of its gravitational pull (I have actually researched this to see if it's possible and in the process, discovered that there has been a recent increase in solar flares).

3. I am afraid of solar flares.

4. I don't let people wear shoes in my house. Nothing good has ever entered a home on a shoe.

5. I don't eat meat because I love the animals and hate the texture; that being said, I eat gravies and broths and other animal by-products, which probably indicates that I don't love the animals enough.

Step back, Cubicle Reverend. I am the new ruler of weirdness. The first step is acknowledgement . . . then what?

P.S. I especially enjoyed your #5.

Blogger The Cubicle Reverend said...

Yeah, I figured most women would get a kick out of #5. Though it puts a crimp on dating women who are taller than me. I don't have a problem with it, heck I'm used to it, but they find it awkward.

And after you aknowledge it you enjoy being it more.

CR,

Just how tall are you? Certainly above average, right?

12:15 PM  
Blogger The Cubicle Reverend said...

Ok ok, I'm 5'8" my sister is 5'11". We used to think she was just a meer 5'10", but a recent doctors appointment proved her wrong.

12:29 PM  
Blogger T.B. Vick said...

ah, I see. Well, I was 5'7" all the way up to my senior year in high school and then I shot up my freshman year of college to 6'1", but I am still the shortest guy in my immediate family - my dad is 6'4" and my older brother is 6'5"

I think it is because I smoked cigs for about 9 to 10 years from my teen years to my mid to late twenties. That's my theory anyway.

12:56 PM  
Blogger The Cubicle Reverend said...

Oh yeah, that's exactly the same thing. You have my sympathy being only 6'1"

1. I enjoy homework, school work, and learning... (I am a nerd)

2. I am deathly afraid of spiders, or anything that resembles them, I don't like to talk about them, and can't even look at pictures of them.

3. I played magic (a card game along the lines of dungeons and dragons) all through out highschool.

4. I am OCD, I have to make all the lines from the vaccume go the same direction.

5. More OCD... I don't like any of my food to touch on my plate.

see I am wierd...

Blogger Wendy said...

Ooh Sprite, I also hate my food to touch on my plate. For the longest time I would only eat on a divided plate.
