Weirdo Tag

Blueberry tagged me..........

According to the rules...
Each player of this game starts with the “6 weird things about you”. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave a comment that says “you are tagged” in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

Six weird thing about me:
1. I am a runner that hated running as a teen. back then I was a swimmer. I couldn't run because of asthma, I would start out at full speed and be falling over wheezing before the first quarter mile lap was finished. In my adulthood I have finished marathons and always place in the top of my age group on shorter runs like 5K's and 10K's and 10 Milers.

2. I'm not from anywhere. When people ask that I don't have an answer. I was a military brat, who moved from place to place every 3 or 4 years, then I was in the military for 20 years. Of all the places I lived, I liked New Mexico the best. I will retire somewhere around Taos.

3. Religious confusion. My mother was Jewish who wouldn't let us practice that faith. At age 11 I lived with a step-mother who was a very hypocritical Catholic. She was always wanting to put me through the Catholic classes and be confirmed. I refused. Back then I claimed I was an atheist, but now I realize, I was just a an "Bible" G-d atheist. Today I'm smart enough to say, it's all about how you define the word G-d or Creator. Religion is nonsense.

4. Chick Flicks. I like romantic comedies, what most people call "chick flicks". I cry at happy endings in the those movies. It always brings me to tears at the end of "You've Got Mail" when Kathleen realizes it's Joe she's been emailing and they finally meet. ("Brinkley...") It doesn't help when that Harry Nilsson version of "Over the Rainbow" starts playing. ("I wanted it to be you. I wanted it to be you so badly.") . Hey for a guy, that's weird. I hate the action/SFX movies, BORING!

5. Guy Stuff - Most things that amuse men, do nothing for me. Big Screen TV's, football or any sport on TV, going out drinking and partying, hunting, trucks, video games, BBQ, greasy french fries, and on and on goes the list, I have no interest in any of those things. The one exception is beer. I love a good quality beer. Guinness,MMMMMM.

6. I'm a weather geek. I love cloudy days, rainy days, stormy weather, lightning storms. Bright sun gives me a headache, which is why you always see me with sunglasses on outside. I think I'm hyper-sensitive to the sun.

I tag:
BSB (because she wants to be tagged)
AB (because it will make her say "GAAAAAAAAAAAA")
Minou (because she's over there)

I'll finish this later........... work calls


7. I never finish what I say I'm going to finish later. That's niCk code for "I'm done". Therapist's order. The world will not end if things are left unfin

We think a lot alike. I like chick flicks also, and don't get a lot of the man stuff.

Well, I did race when younger, and still watch a Nascar race at times.

When people ask me where I'm from I like to say, "From my mommy".

bsb, Number 9? Turn your monitor over it's 6. LOL


Oh wait, unless you we're looking at my long list. Wow, you are psychic!

az - Perfect? Yeah Yeah, I'm perfectly delusional.

I was going to tag you but you already got tagged.

No panties? hhmm Do you wear skirts? Just say "yes" to entertain me.

I think it would be more entertaining for you if she said no... ;-) No skirts.. and no ... now isn't that better for your mind... ;-)

Hey, I'm a military kid too. Only another one knows what it's like to not be from anywhere. I have lived in New Mexico twice. I have moved >80 times.

On the movies, I am upside-down from you. I avoid the chick-flicks preferring action/SF/fantasy... unless they are historical costume things or have Johnny Depp in them or both. Mr. B and I like the same darned movies (well, Johnny Depp is less important to him)(I think).

on #5 - you go! Very refreshing. And beer is good. Big screen TVs are fine if something GOOD is on, like Meerkat Manor. ;-)

I finish most things, sooner or later. Or just say "To hell with it I'm done."

But here is the best part, everything I build is temporary. Smirk
