SJ's Eight Secret List (Don't Tell)

SJ to the rescue!!! I wanted to blog today yet could not find anything to write about until stumbling to my home away from my home away from home AKA Parenthetically Speaking. Good ole’ (not old) Serena has once again tagged everyone with a mission to list eight things about yourself that most people do not know. Now considering that my mom and boss read this blog, my deepest darkest secrets will remain deep and dark, but there is such an abundance of strangeness within me that I can easily reveal eight things without scaring my family or risking my job.

The Rules as posted are-
Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Here we go:

1. I am cheap: not stingy or selfish, but cheap. We are talking Jack Benny cheap. For a person with no concept of money who is always broke I seem to really hate parting with it. Well, in small doses that is. I have no problem dropping $200 dollars on something stupid yet agonize over spending $20 on something I need. This may be normal for all I know (although it would be the first normal thing I have ever done.)

2. I love movies, but hate going to a theater to see them. I would much rather watch a movie from the comforts of my abode than sit in a crowded theater and miss much of the movie due to talking, babies crying, cell phones ringing, and the constant internal nag of “I paid $10 for this crap?” This may actually be a continuation of number one, but I need eight things so this is officially now number two.

3. I am very conservative for a liberal. The only real thing that makes me liberal is the fact that I choose a conservative lifestyle and refuse to ever let anyone tell me how I should live. I am anti-abortion yet pro-choice. I am for capitol punishment yet want serious controls places upon it. I feel it is used too freely overall, but can see where it is needed. I have yet to like the person in the White House while still holding respect for the office. With inner conflicts like this what else can I be other than a liberal?

4. I am gullible generally.

5. I have no faith in humanity, but tons in human beings. I feel once two or more people get together they lose a sense of self and are capable of anything, but as individuals humans are amazing and wonderful creatures.

6. I believe personally in evolution AND creation. While there is no denying that things evolve, I believe something had to start the ball moving and until I learn otherwise I prefer to believe that it was G-d.

7. I am actually having a hard time coming up with eight things that will not get me fired or written out of the will. Perhaps I am more normal than I thought or I just don’t really hide that much of who I am from that many people. Or I am just lying right now…the world may never know (or it already does.)

8. I can be redundant when not repeating myself or trying to find new ways to say things already said. I can retread over covered ground and I do like restating things. Also, sometimes I can be known to repeat myself or to be redundant, but we will not talk about that right now.

If you are reading this (AND HAVE A BLOG)consider yourself tagged.

Wow, you really opened up here, Kan. Interesting! You're not alone in preferring to watch movies at home. So do I. It suits me so much better to be able to pause a DVD whenever I want and not have to sit still in a darkened theatre.

I don't know: Kanrei sounds suspiciously normal to me.

But maybe he's just lying. We may never know.

Me takes it back. You sense of wacyness ain't hibernatin. It's doin fine here at home with all the other lemmings.

Fun post. I did one of these a short time ago...

You sound like my husband....and maybe myself as well.....guess that makes us all normal....or not:)

ThatGreenyFlower said...

Wel, Kanrei, you don't sound very weird at all. (I'm not sure if hearing that I'm NOT unique is a good thing or a bad thing, though...)

"Penny wise, pound foolish"--that's me too, darn it all. $50 on a shrub? Heck yeah. $1 for a soy bar? OUTRAGEOUS!

Kanrei said...

As a person always considered weird, but wanting to be normal I find it refreshing. Maybe I am conforming in my old age...who knows?

Looks like Steve Buchheit couldn't resist your tagging style either.
