Yes, since I’ve been in an introspective mood lately, it’s brought to the front of my mind just how strange I am. Not contrived “notice me!” strangeness; there’s no reason to give that kind of personlity trait a second thought. After all, that kind of “different” is an act – something I’ve been guilty of before. I am an attention-craving middle child, after all. No, the strangeness that’s come to my attention is wholly genuine.
This is weird: Even though I live a good 9 miles from downtown, because we live on such a hill, during the winter we can see downtown from our house. Every morning when I get up, I pull my drapes open just a bit to see if downtown is still there. Blame 9/11, I guess. It’s the same mentality when I’m driving up my street. There’s a big curve before you get to my house. While going around the curve, I say a little prayer that the house is still there. Every time. Blame that on the fact that one time, it wasn’t.
This is weird: I have a “thing” for Kari Byron from Mythbusters. I’m a little too old to have a geek-crush. I think my inner nerd just appreciates her accesibility to boys who live in that world; most attractive females would not come within a mile of the dungeons and dragons set, except to manipulate and market. She’s an unlikely sex symbol,but more power to her!
This is weird: I like mustard on McDonald’s sausage biscuits. Haven’t had one since I started the diet, though.
This is weird: my television viewing habits would confound any marketing surveyor. Sunday: NASCAR, Extreme Makeover, Home Edition, plus whatever’s on Discovery Channel. Monday: Dancing with the Stars. Tuesday: DWTS results show. Wednesday: Mythbusters, CSI NY. Thursday: Ugly Betty, CSI. Friday is movie night. Saturday: sports, sports, and more sports. Any and all programming is pre-emtpted when the Preds are playing. Let’s face it, advertising people. You don’t know whether do use sex, emotion, or fear to market to me. 🙂
This is weird: I haven’t read a book for entertainment purposes in about 10 years. I know, I know. My mind is turning to mush.
That’s enough weirdness for one day.
