I'm the Weirdest

I'm sorry, but there's just no competition. I mean, who else...

Starts a cult based entirely on cereal?

Sort of looks forward to going in at a bloody hour to do inventory- "I can be annoyingly cheerful at 5 A.M., too!"

Sets the alarm clock to go off with Halloween sound effects, making the computer actually scream at the bloody hour?

Arbitrarily declares holidays for her minions to celebrate?

Never buys 2 liters of Coke unless they are on sale for 99 cents but shells out $1.05 for 20 cold ounces of Peach Fanta?

Has the hidden talent of white girl rapping, among other useless hobbies?

Doesn't think she has a Southern accent until other people point it out- "Y'all have a good afternoon! Evening. Whatever it is."

Reads all 627 pages of the new Harry Potter twice in three days?

Insists on taking hundreds of barely-distinguisable poses of her baby nephew- even when he was asleep?

Hasn't had her toenails painted the same color on each foot in three years?

Takes being called insane as a compliment, becauase she never wants to grow up?

Apparently enjoys speaking in the third person?

It's OK. I accept you even if you aren't quite as weird as me. And perhaps if you hang around long enough, you will begin to approach the same weird caliber. Or at least get a little farther away from that horrible thing called normal...

Well, I know normal people, and you, missie, are no normal people. Or person. Or something.

But I ain't normal, either, y'all.

Ahh, normal is for the birds...I've never been accused of being "normal" myself... besides, normal is boring ;)

Let's hear it for the weird crowd!

Woo hoo.

I'm trying to think of weird things to draw on the cast I just know I'm going to have to get.

Hats off to weirdness.

I'm not a woman... I don't know how to use make up, I don't pain my nails and toe nails regularly, maybe once a year... I don't take care of my skin :( I don't take care of myself. I think I'm more of a guy than a girl :)

So, when do we get to the wierd stuff?

Yep, that's my girl! Gotta love her!!! If that makes you look weird, the rest of us are probably doomed ;)

"Minion" is a word that needs to be reintroduced to the English language.

I thought I was normal once. But then my other personalities convinced me otherwise.

Nettie:

two things:

1) nothing in the world more attractive than a young woman with a Southern accent;

2) Peach Fanta is fantastic.

I listened to TWO Christmas CDs on Friday...count 'em..... one, TWO!! Christmas is fun. I just read your post about celebrating Christmas...where can I find some carved elves to begin a collection? I've been trying to decide what to collect, and that's gotta be it. Elves!! *grin*

Normal is monotonous, and monotonous, boring/lacking in variety. I'm stuck to weird me. Loving every minute of it...

Nettie--

You must have realized by now that like calls to like, and that you have attracted quite a strange collection of walking protoplasm to your site, including yours truly. You are definitely unique and one of the most imaginative weirdos on the blogosphere, but you are far from alone, young lady.

On other matters:

1) Heavy excess photography of young tots is a common obsessive ailment. Wait till you have your first child -- you'd better have a digital camera, otherwise the film costs will bankrupt you. You will stop just short of getting artistic shots of poopy diapers.

2) Hard to believe about your Harry Potter "speed of sound" readings. You are either the reincarnation of Evelyn Wood, or you have WAY too much time on your hands. I picked up the book the day it came out, and I just finished Chapter 3. And not because I find it boring! No time.

3) On the toenails thing, have you ever considered you might be colorblind? Do you ever wear one black and one brown shoe?

By the way, on your Bible quote there, I once thought it read "I know the PLANTS I have for you, PLANTS to prosper you and not to harm you." I kept waiting for the truck from the nursery to come to my house and make a delivery of these heavenly plants, but it never did.

Not really.
