only six

The ever-fabulous Mary has tagged me to tell you all six weird things about myself.

I believe I've done this before, but there are so many odd things to share that I figure I might as well do it again.

Hopefully I won't repeat myself.

The rules are:

Each player of this game starts with the “6 weird things about you”. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave a comment that says “you are tagged” in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

My six weird, but fairly mundane, things:

1) I spent a good portion of my teenage years having a mad crush on Sherlock Holmes. Please, don't laugh. It was a sweet, innocent, and tender love, and it would make Sherlock and I cry.

2) Occasionally I have been known to talk to the authors of books, while reading their books. Not the characters, mind you -- no the author. As in, "What the bloody hell are you thinking? You have used the same word about 27 different times this chapter! Have you no thesaurus???" I occasionally consider actually writing such authors and asking what they were thinking, but I usually think better of it and move on with life. Usually.

3) From the ages of about eight until about fifteen, or so, I worked on an intricate time traveling plan. I wasn't sure about how I was going to travel through time, but I had all the other details planned out, e.g. how to let my parents know not to worry about me, what to do for money and living arrangements and clothing, paradoxes (though for a long time I didn't know that a lot of my concerns had said term), etc.

4) I have, and always have had, a very rich inner fantasy life. (Wow... I wonder if some sort of monster lives in the lake across the street...)

5) When I was a teenager, my dentist inadvertently hypnotized me so I could not read and write. This condition lasted for about two weeks. Long story short, it took a shrink in Salt Lake City to put me back together again.

6) I think I have a crush on a piece of my subconscious.
