Thanks to Shannon Ashley for tagging me in her post, So, I’m Kind of a Weirdo.

This reminds me of something I would’ve written in my LiveJournal (come on, who else?) back in the early aughts.

My dad always said, “If you think somebody isn’t weird, you just don’t know them well enough.”

And I always said, “Yeah, but you’re like, extra weird, Dad.”

I write tiny. I mean tiiiiiny.

I don’t like metal forks, but I make myself use them.

Speaking of tininess and utensils, I eat my ice cream with a baby spoon.

I hold my breath when I drive past a cemetery.

I put easy things on my to-do list, just so I can cross them off.

I write while lying down.

I’m sort of really terrified of a robot takeover.

I’m attracted to the worst parts of the internet.

I LOVE warning labels with pictures of what not to do.

I love rats.
