Weird Facts About Me

Life is boring if you’re normal. I like being able to do weird things. I like that I can embrace the weirdness. So, what’s weird about me?

  1. I have a double-jointed left thumb. It looks weird when I bend it backwards. I can’t do it with my right thumb, though.
  2. I can roll my stomach. I’ve been able to do it since I was a kid. My daughter can do it, too!
  3. I can’t touch an invertebrate, unless I’m eating a shrimp tail. But if it has legs and a head, I can’t touch it.
  4. I play around with words all the time and I think it annoys people.
  5. I can’t sleep on my back. I have to fall asleep on my right side, though sometimes on my left side. However, I sometimes wake up on my stomach, and find it easier to fall back to sleep on my stomach.
  6. Watching pimple popping videos is a weird and sometimes disgusting thing, but I find it oddly satisfying.
  7. I hate tomatoes, cooked or raw. I can’t stand tomato sauce or pizza sauce. However, I like ketchup, barbecue sauce, A1 sauce, and HP sauce.
  8. When I was a kid, I wore a Superman cape whenever I watched Superman movies.
  9. I once had a dream where I turned into Homer Simpson, and I was being chased by the troll king Ned Flanders.
  10. I used to eat cans of shrimp drenched in Worcestershire sauce.

Do you think these are weird? What’s the weirdest? And how about you? Tell me something weird about you.

Do You Watch the Paralympics?

The opening ceremonies of the Paralympics is on right now. It’s very much like the Olympics opening ceremonies. The CBC in Canada is giving full coverage of the Paralympics, which I think is great. The athletes are every bit as good as Olympic athletes.

This event receives a much lower profile, and in the past, has been poorly covered by media. A lot of people hardly know anything about it. Do they think it’s less important? I don’t think so.

What do you think about the Paralympics? If you watch the Olympics, do you also watch the Paralympics?
