(from Facebook, not sure who to credit, but somebody deserves a lot of it)
I don’t remember where this list came from, but “weird things about me” is a prompt I found hard to resist. Is that weird?
I suppose the real weird part is having it sit in my drafts folder for six months. So “hard to resist” may not mean what I think it means. Anyway, here you go. Feel free to copy and paste the questions so we can compare weirdness.
1. Do you like blue cheese?
Absolutely cannot get past the appearance and smell to put it in my mouth. So I guess that means no.
2. Coke or Pepsi?
Not sure (in a blind taste test) if I’d be able to tell the difference. I think I prefer Pepsi but I’ve been buying Coke Zero. A lot of things in my life are confusing like that.
3. Do you own a gun?
Nope. Although there’s still a couple of shot guns in the house from W’s trap shooting days, complete with permits. They are locked away, separate from ammunition. We are good law-abiding Canadians who will have to fend off intruders with kitchen knives and random blunt objects. I don’t really have a clear plan.
4. What flavor Kool-aid?
Never touch the stuff. Raspberry Crystal Lite is pretty good. I prefer making my own lemon water with Truvia.
5. What do you think of hot dogs?
I think it’s bizarre that white bread with mystery meat and a pile of condiments can taste so good.
6. Favorite tv show?
7. Favorite movie?
I refuse to answer questions containing the word “favourite” especially when it’s spelled incorrectly.
8. What do you drink in the morning?
Water to swallow daily meds and coffee to improve my disposition.
9. Can you do a push-up?
10. Favorite jewelry?
11. Favorite hobby?
Leave me alone.
13. Do you wear glasses?
Yes, when I’m driving. Otherwise I squint a lot at things in the distance and may appear to be rude and stuck up when I don’t recognize your face at twenty paces and ignore you.
14. Favorite cartoon character?
Cartoons are stupid.
15. Three things you did today?
Went to our accountants office to sign some papers. Ate a McDonalds breakfast. Whipped off an email to my baby sister to wish her a happy birthday and let her know her card will be late because I’m a procrastinating moron. That last part she knows already so I didn’t have to actually point it out.
16. Three drinks you drink regularly?
Coffee. Times three. And LOTS of water if that counts.
17. Current worries?
Why is life so expensive? That’s about it.
18. Current hates?
19. Favorite place to be?
Home. Drinking coffee.
20. How did you ring in the new year?
Blissfully unconscious. Probably snoring.
21. Where would you like to go?
Back to Ontario.
22. Favorite color?
Red. COLOUR. I know, I’m being anal.
23. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?
No clue. But the slipperiness might be weird.
24. Can you whistle?
Very badly. One barely audible note.
25. Where are you now?
On the couch in my living room. From here I can observe the approach of intruders, assuming they choose to gain access through the front door.
26. Would you be a pirate?
Probably not a very good one. Not a fan of ships and oceans. Or looting or swords.
27. Favorite food?
Not blue cheese.
28. What’s in your pockets?
Air and lint.
29. Last thing that made you laugh?
The news. It also sometimes makes me cry. And the picture at the top of this post. OMG the look on that cats face.
30. Favorite animal?
Stop it. Okay, it’s that cat.
31. What’s your most recent injury?
I have a huge bruise on my left leg at the knee. Must have bumped in to something. Can’t give you any more details than that.
32. How many tv’s in your house?
33. Worst pain ever?
Crushed disc in my lower back pushing on a nerve. I spent about eight months on muscle relaxants and pain killers before surgery to remove it. That’s how long it took to get a proper diagnosis.
34. Do you like to dance?
Not. At. All. Because AWKWARD.
35. Are your parents still alive?
No. I miss them.
36. Do you enjoy camping?
No. Camping is even more stupid than cartoons.
Happy Thursday! If it’s your birthday today the card from me is gonna be late, sorry!
This all ended up considerably less weird than I expected. I’ll try to do better next time.
