The Weird Game Challenge

I have been tagged. Variant E has tagged me to post six weird things about myself. It is an online game of sorts. Being one who loves a good game I must do this. Should be rather fun.

The rules for this game according to his blog are as follows:
1. Write six weird things about yourself.
2. Post this confession of the absurd on your blog
3. Tag six other bloggers to do the same challenge
4. Leave a comment on each of their blogs to inform them they have been chosen.

I must remember my mother reads my blog as I answer this question. She is a Jewish mother and has a very carefully and well crafted illusion of her son and who am I to wreck it?

On a tangent: How can you prove Jesus was Jewish? He thought he mother was a virgin and his mother thought he was G-d. Just a joke…tough crowd: I’ll just get back to the subject at hand.

How do I limit myself to only six things really? What exactly is weird really? I will have to put myself in my co-workers shoes to answer this. Thank G-d they wear sneakers because I don’t know how to walk in heels.

1. I collect action figures. I have my entire life and still have most of the toys from my childhood. I have at least 80 action figures on shelves throughout my house. They range from Marvel superheroes to Musicians such as Jimi Hendrix to Elvis Presley and, of course Star Wars and Simpsons.

2. I am an insomniac who works dayshift for a sleep disorders center. I think the irony in that alone is rather worthy of a weird point.

3. I do not drink alcohol except for once a year and that is to remember why I do not drink alcohol. I am not an ex-addict or anything, but I just do not like my drunk self and I get drunk very quickly.

4. I will go out of my way to not cause another person any pain even to the extreme of causing myself pain. I think I am over empathetic and usually see the other person’s side before my own.

5. I learn the words to songs I hate faster than I do the songs I love. I know every word to Spice Girls and still struggle with “Desolation Row.” I have heard Spice Girls I think ten times and “Desolation Row” somewhere near 500 at least.

6. The weirdest thing about me is I am a blogger. There is no longer any denying it or finding cleaver ways to phrase it: I blog therefore I am and nothing about me is weirder than that.

I will be tagging Rex, Serena, Steve G, and the boys at PWZ. That one alone should be a great read…
Game on.

Excellent job Kanrei! Leave it to you to ponder only 6 and then question the very definition of "weird".

Action figures eh? Well you would probably cringe then when I bought a moc Shocker Spiderman villian figure for my son and let him open and play with it!

You are the 35 year old virgin....You just need the hot grandmother from the 'Sell it on Ebay' store and you will be set.....

Uh thanks man....you tagged me and then everyone I know....Strangers will mock me in the street....

Kanrei said...

I am so sorry about that Rex. You still have...Walt and I only needed two from PWZ so that leaves you the rest. I did not think about that.

Steve G said...

Kanrei, I would have participated, but I'm in the Witness Protection Program and my handler said it was a no..no.

RexZeitgiest said...

Too late Kan, a small unknown child mocked me today over this....I may never recover....

RexZeitgiest said...

Serena Joy said...

Kanrei said...

Booo on Steve's WP Agent. Booo.

Thank you Rex and Serena.

Serena Joy said...

Let's just hope Steve's WP agent isn't Secret Service. His cell phone will get stolen.

You should talk to some of the doctors at your sleep center - maybe they'd have some advice for you about that insomnia.
