A loyal reader ( sometimes) of mine tagged me with a interesting topic.


6 strange facts about me!
  1. I am left handed, but do many things right handed.
  2. I am my own worst critic and too hard on myself.
  3. Even though I am considered very talkative by many, I feel anti-social at times.
  4. I was born with a pointed head! ( this really should be #1)
  5. I am a hopeless romantic.
  6. Sometimes wish I was born in a different era.

I am sure I can think of some other weirdness!!!! But hey! Weird is all in the eye of the perciever! :-)

READERS! Share with me your weirdness! I wont include them in my Christmas letter. PROMISE!

You know the origins of my weirdness! I remember #1 like it was yesterday!

If being your best friend is weird...I dont want to be "normal"!

Wow...thats pretty mushy for 2 guys to say to each other...

Hey Mike,

Saw you at AG's blog.

Oddly enough, I'm also left handed but do a lot of things with my right hand. I wonder if there's any similarities here...

Left handed: write, eat, bowling, tennis, ping-pong, archery and shooting pool.

Right handed: golf, baseball, shoot basketballs, darts, guitar, kicking a football (right-footed).

I think it's wierd that you are always invisible on the IM so that I can't say hi when I feel like it.

Wow, you really are mushy but that's cool you've had a bff for 40 years. If I was 40, I could say that about a couple of my gf's too. But I'm young, so I can't!!!

(hahahahahahah, I kill me)

Thanks for doing this.

Your sometimes loyal reader (is that all I am to you?)

Those aren't so strange! But then you know I understand that side of things.

A friend once told me that I should call myself a "hopeful romantic". And I've looked at it differently ever since. It says that we are optimistic and filled with hope that the romantic part of us will be recognized, appreciated and maybe even returned.

Alas, I am also a sometimes loyal reader, not to take anything away from the August Godess nor cause jealousy, but I am enjoying getting to know you. Wierdness, quirks and all! You've quickly moved up the ranks as a confidant. And mind you,that's not an easy task!

Strangest fact about me??

Born on Friday the 13th :-)
