6 Weird Things About Me

People who get tagged need to write a blog entry of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly! In the end, you need to choose 3 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment on their blog that says they have been tagged and tell them to read your blog. Unless of course, that seems way too much like work.

Six weird things about yours truly:

1.) When I'm writing and I hit a snag, I get up and wander aimlessly around my apartment or go through the material like I'm being interviewed about it.

2.) I have an extremely high pain threshhold. I broke my collarbone completely in half when I was 3 but didn't even cry. I've since broken 3 more bones (at once) without shedding a single tear.

3.) My first job was washing dishes in an Italian restaurant, a job they usually only hired men to do. Not quite the glass ceiling I thought I'd break.

4.) I sometimes start thinking in foreign languages out of nowhere. I've even forgotten how to speak my native language on occasion. Sometimes, I get stuck on a word because I can only remember how to say it in some other language.

4a.) Despite having an extensive vocabulary, if my thoughts get out of sync with my speech, I'll either start stuttering (a speech problem most who know me don't realize I have since it doesn't occur very often anymore) or I'll forget really simple words (never BIG words, just little bitty everyday words like milk or center or square). I call it verbal dyslexia.

5.) During a tour of Europe, I was complicit in smuggling a young South African woman out of France.

6.) I've been to the crater of an active volcano.

Now, by the power invested in me by the blogger that tagged me for this, I hereby tag:

The Duck
Reasonably Prudent Poet
Margaret Cho

Use the Force!

Walking to the bus stop after work, I ran into one of the new R2D2 mailboxes. Here's a stolen pic for your amusement:

That's Better.

You Should Be a Science Fiction Writer

Your ideas are very strange, and people often wonder what planet you're from.
And while you may have some problems being "normal," you'll have no problems writing sci-fi.
Whether it's epic films, important novels, or vivid comics...
Your own little universe could leave an important mark on the world!

What planet am I from? Kreplar. Go past the Horsehead Nebula and turn left, relative to the planet Sliznak of course.

Okay, They're Messing With The Wrong Geek!

Your Geek Profile:

Academic Geekiness: Highest
Movie Geekiness: Moderate
SciFi Geekiness: Moderate
Fashion Geekiness: Low
Gamer Geekiness: Low
Geekiness in Love: Low
General Geekiness: Low
Music Geekiness: Low
Internet Geekiness: None

Hey! I'm at least 75%!

You Are 44% Nerdy

You may be a bit surprised with this score, but your more of a closet nerd than an actual nerd.
Stop denying your inner nerd! You're truly dorkier than you think.

I refuse to take this insult against my nerditude lying down! I was on the chess team for goodness sakes! I won my first writing award for a science fiction short story! My nickname freshman year was Yoda! I swear this quiz must have been written by a lepton. Proof positive that I am Alpha Nerd: My secret life as Cierek of Vulcan.


Your Seduction Style: Fantasy Lover

You know that ideal love that each of us dreams of from childhood? That's you!
Not because you posess all of the ideal characteristics, but because you are a savvy shape shifter.
You have the uncanny ability to detect someone's particular fantasy... and make it you.

You inspire each person to be an idealist and passionate, and you make each moment memorable
Even a simple coffee date with you can be the most romantic moment of someone's life
By giving your date exactly what he or she desires, you quickly become the ideal lover.

Your abilities to make dreams come true is so strong, that you are often the love of many people's lives.
Your ex's (and even people you have simply met or been friends with) long to be yours.
No doubt you are the one others have dreamed of... your biggest challenge is finding *your* dream lover.

Explains a lot. Like why my exes still hit on me or get jealous when I'm with someone else. Or why the older lesbians used to lecture me to be careful with other people's hearts. Doesn't explain why I keep getting dumped.

Yeah, Baby!

You Are Surrealism

Dreamy and idealistic, you've created a world that is all your own.
It's very likely that you've either dabbled in drugs or are naturally trippy.
You are always trying to push beyond the boundaries of your culture and society.
You believe that art, love, and freedom can change the world.

Dear Angie,

It's snowing! Nyah Nyah Nyah

I REALLY want to use the bully pulpit to get even with someone who probably deserves it. I can't bring myself to do it. I really can't allow myself to be that petty. Why do I have to always be the "nice guy"? It would really feel a LOT better if I could just be a lowdown, classless bitch for about five minutes. But I can't. I'm such a loser.
