I'm it,courtesy Freaksho.So,six unspectacular quirks of mine, and then I can share the love.Rather like a communicable disease,don't you think?Anyway,here goes:
1)When I'm contemplative,I suck my tongue.I also cover my left ear with my left arm or shoulder. I have been doing this for as long as I remember,despite maternal efforts to....cure me.I suspect the Freudians out here could write theses on the implications.Moving on...
2)I like trivia.Distance to Alpha Centauri?4 lightyears.Capital city of Outer Mongolia?Ullan Bator.I'm nowhere near that Jennings fellow,but I like to think I can hold my own.
3)I love books.I have read a lot in my time,from fiction through autobiogaphies to war stories,but still mainly fiction,specifically science fiction and fantasy.I've even read romance(M&B,Silhouette,Harlequin) when I had nothing better around.The quality of your bookshelf is a factor in whether I respect your opinions or not.
4)People bore me.Too many people lose their sense of wonder by the time they're ten.Too many people believe education is what you do to get a degree.Too many people stop reading when they finish school.And far too many people are too self involved to actually enjoy the world around them.
5)I have a temper.Buried deep and hedged around with row after row of inhibition and warnings of the cost of anger,but it's there.I've lived the term "blinding rage".Add that to a mule headed stubborness,and there is potential for....incidents.Thankfully,they're pretty rare.
6)Makeup fascinates me.The whole process of applying warpaint has always been interesting to watch.The results are almost as interesting,and often provides unintended amusement;anybody remember the false eyebrow craze?
Okay,I think that's enough show and tell for one afternoon.Next up:Icequeen,Syd , Afrobabe and Hengish.Your turn.
