snapshots of an idle mind

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. I was tagged by pyrhonik.

1. i tell off people for littering and parking badly (on my street) and various other little old lady things like that. some boys think it’s attractive, some people think i’m a freak.

sometimes i tell myself off before i do it.

sometimes i plan to key people’s cars for being particularly obnoxious…

but i never do.

2. i get really involved with the characters on television.

like i’ll be watching and something will happen and i will already know what the characters are about to say. often i’ll say it out loud and people will stop and stare at me.

how did you know that? i just did, i know what the characters are *like*

sometimes i’ll yell at the tv or shout or cringe. i’ve been known to hide my eyes when the character is about to do something dreadfully embarrassing.

there are entire types of shows i can’t watch because they’re too embarrassing OR they’re ridiculously unrealistic (think lawyer shows for example… i know just enough law not to be able to watch them…)

3. instead of putting my cat to sleep when she was dying of jaw cancer i fed her through a tube.

to this day i swear she asked me to do that just like i think my cats named themselves.

if this is too strange for you i don’t give a shit.

4. i say what i think although i sometimes try to make it a little nicer.

like i might not tell you that i think your friend is an unadulterated ass and a moron but i might say that she and i can’t seem to connect. so i guess i’m perfectly willing to tell the truth but i do feel like maybe there are degrees of truth.

there just doesn’t seem to be any need to be more mean than you have to be to get your point across.

this is not true the four days before and the first day of my period.

5. i don’t understand where the pilates teacher inside me comes from. i never knew anyone like her and i never ever would have expected to be her and there she was.

she sprang fully-formed from my forehead and started sucking up information as fast as she possibly could. she’s still doing it and i don’t expect her to stop.

the fascination with pilates and movement isn’t that surprising, it’s how much i love to share it that i didn’t expect.

watching someong *get* what i’m teaching them?

seeing their bodies heal and recover and come back to them?

wow. no idea how much i was going to get off on that!

6. i love people who don’t love me and even when i have it proven to me in painful and unrecoverable ways i sometimes don’t get over them anyway.

every man i meet is a potential date.

i think they sense this and run in the opposite direction.

and i tag othercat, madame, amber, jmai (tag nat!), kathi and hubris :)



  1. I think I may have to do “6 normal things” because that would be weird.

    OK I’m on this. Thanks this is gonna be fun.

  2. i don’t think any of this is particularly weird.

    does that make me weird??

  3. Haha I often think about keying people’s cars also… to me the most obnoxious is the ones who park diagonally, taking up 2 spaces because they’re afraid their precious car (which is usually worth under $30k) will get scratched.

    But I never do it either -s-

    I will do this tag very soon and yes, I will tag Nat!

  4. PS not that my car isn’t also worth well under $30k but the point is it’s so cheesy and also very inconsiderate, particularly if they do the diagonal park close to the door of wherever. If you’re going to pull that shit, park far away.

    No matter how far you park, it’s still cheesy though.

    /rant. Sorreee!

  5. SIX?? Six weird things….hmmmm, gonna be a challengs. :)

  6. Define “WEIRD” for me will you?!
    Great list, and not one of those things would I call weird. Weirdness, like insanity is just a difference perspective of normality..
    p.s I been slack…well actually been busy. Have new digs and been busy decorating – this time I aint going nowhere. After many months spent searching for exactly what I wanted from a blog and host, I FOUND IT!!!

  7. madame: it was fun… most people do a much shorter version than this but that’s the fun of meme’s… you can do what you like!

    terry: no, but then we already know that we like each other right?

    jmai: yeah those ones are obnoxious as hell but i must say that the hummers who take up three spots on a street with parallel parking drive me nuts. how do you do that with your huge fucking car? it’s like how do cats take up an entire queen size bed with one six pound body.

    i’m too nice to key cars, but i’ve kicked a tire once…

  8. jmai2: yeah for sure, i get you’re in a hurry but please don’t fuck up the parking lot for the rest of the day thanks…

    (it’s less cheesy if there are at least three empty rows between you and everyojne else… but only slightly)

    rant on babe!

    kathi: yeah for me it was too… actually the whole list was weird and i don’t feel that i managed much…

    deb: well i could ask but that’s not what you meant :)

    i don’t think any of them are weird either but they’re inside me so of course i think they’re fine right? it’s like that…

    i would have tagged you but i hit six already, do it anyway!

    you moved to wordpress too? cool, what inspired that?

  9. What inspired the move? Well mainly it was the tax refund which so generously allowed for the domain name and hosting purchase! I was getting tired of using the great software I was using, but ONLY from my machine and then uploading it to host. Took forever seeing as how have super slow connection until poppy gets off his ass and turns satellite into a supersized wireless antenna for me! As for choosing wordpress? Mainly because it offered the opportunity to learn something new, and I like what it can do…
    As for doing the weird meme? I’ll have a dash at it tomorrow :)
    p.s dontchya love me anymore? I don’t got a link :(

  10. Geez, these meme’s really make me wonder if it is a Canadian thing or we’re just that much alike. I’ve wigged out on people for littering, especially that shithead who opens the car door at a redlight and puts the slurpee cup on the ground. And embarassing shows is another, my family laughs at me for having to leave the room. There is still parts of American Pie that I have never seen, and John Ritter or Jim Carry are two people I simply have a very hard time watching.

    #3 had me ROTFLMAO. O boy did that ring funny in my head. Not that tenderness of your actions but the not giving a shit. I could picture your face saying it. BTW, I agree with Emma, you really do look like Carrie Ann Moss.

    I think that pilates is something I need to give a try for eventually. If I ever get on a schedule which doesn’t take me away from home for a week at a time.

    I thought #6 was easily the weirdest of the lot. It makes me wonder about your old soul and such a capacity for love.

    Thanks for playin :)

  11. ok, I laughed at the “they run in the opposite direction”

  12. deb: nice!

    i’m thinking of doing that with my domain as well, that way if i move the blog no one else needs to do anything.

    dude i have NO idea why you weren’t linked, i must have missed you when i was blogrolling… or your site was down or something.. no idea really but it’s fixed now!

    yay for weird!

    pyr: maybe both? i just cover my eyes and if it’s really bad i make lalala noises *g*

    heh, i’m glad that amused you, and really who minds getting accused of looking like carrie anne moss? not me!

    dude once you know a little about pilates you can just do like a 15 minute morning wake-up or whatever, it will do wonders for you…

    what does number six make you wonder?

    you’re welcome btw.

    kj: dude, how could you not? and tragically? they really do.

  13. I didn’t know you had moved! I’ve been keeping an eye (through Blogrolling) waiting for you to update. Duh! I’m so blonde.

    I’m glad you are ok.
