Seven Wierd Things About Harry

hd.jpgA couple of weeks ago, Wendy Piersall at eMoms posed the question “Just Exactly How Wierd Are You” and challenged people to describe 7 wierd things about themselves.

I have since learned that maybe I’m not as weird as I believed. For instance, Wendy talked about her Egyptian heritage. I shrugged. I’ve always believed I had a spiritual heritage…that’s not so weird. I’ve always felt people have a blood heritage and a spiritual heritage. Yes, I believe in past lives, but even that isn’t so unusual; lots of people do.

Then we have Shane at Shane and Peter. While he admits to being spiritual and believes in the supernatural side of life, he’s skeptical of others who start spouting off about their psychic abilities and experiences.

I’m the same way. I’ll risk revealing that I’m pagan. I’ve been reading Tarot since the age of 9 and have an uncanny ability to know what people are thinking. This still freaks out my roommate when I say or do something he was thinking of only seconds before. I’m also very skeptical of others claiming to have psychic abilities, maybe because I’ve seen so many “wannabes” who have no idea what they’re talking about. I don’t know how to explain it, but Shane? I hear you on that one.

Without further ado, here are my 7 weird things about me:

  1. I hate it when people bite their forks or spoons when they eat. The sound of teeth on metal (or the mere thought of teeth on metal) makes me cringe.
  2. If a book or a movie is part of a series, I must have that whole series and read or watch it from the very beginning. Even if the movie or book is utter crap, I have to have it. (If there’s anyone out there who can explain the plot of Pirates of the Caribbean 3 to me, I’d appreciate it).
  3. I’ve taught my cats to walk on leashes. I won’t let the cats go outside to run loose, as I’ve already lost one cat to the busy streets where I live. I feel bad that their whole world consists of the inside of this house, though. Lakota (a Pixie Bob) is so much like a dog in attitude that he loves the leash. Cougar (a mixed breed) tolerates a leash but figures it’s worth putting up with to go outside and eat grass.
  4. I’m a gaming geek. I love RPGs (role-playing games, not rocket-propelled grenades – although I do like things that go boom, too), and I’m a fan of White Wolf.
  5. I like the smell of railroad ties. That always reminds me of when I was 5 and my parents took me to Palisades Park back in the early 70s.
  6. I have a ’76 Harley Davidson Electraglide bike parked in my office.
  7. Instead of a conventional stove and oven in my kitchen, I have a monster barbecue grill.

And a small bonus weirdness: I don’t own a car. My motorcycle is my main means of transportation. Rain or shine, hot or cold, I’m on the bike. Does that count?

So there you go. Now it’s your turn.
