Reluctantly, This Is How Weird I Am

As if anyone needed further proof as to how weird I am! Marsha "tagged" me to do this on my blog, so here it is:

Six Weird Things About Me (in no particular order)

1) I have a huge --- and I mean HUGE --- birthmark on my left hip, which extends around my back and down my left thigh.

2) I have seen nearly every movie that Jean Claude Van Damme has starred in, except for the most recent ones (I think there are 2) and that gay pseudo-porn foreign one he did in 1984 (Monaco Forever).

3) When I was in 6th grade, I landed the part of "July" in the Neumann Players' production of Annie. The Neumann Players was a local musical-theatre group that showcased local talent. They were called such because they were founded or supported or both by the PTA of St. John Neumann High School down in South Philly. I don't even know if they exist any more.

4) I can't ride a bike, or roller skate, or skateboard, or ski, or surf, or swim, etc. (No, really, I CAN'T swim AT ALL. Some people say they "can't swim," meaning that they can doggie paddle and/or keep afloat. No, I SERIOUSLY SINK LIKE AN ANCHOR. I am terrified of the water.) I pretty much can't do anything. I am the least athletic and most uncoordinated person I know! :-P

5) I loathe, abominate, and despise Indian Food. The smell of curry nearly makes me convulse. Blech!

6) I don't know if this is "weird," but it certainly is unusual for someone my age: I have never broken any bones ever --- not that I am complaining. Well, at least I have never had a confirmed breakage of bone. I suspect that I might have broken my little toe on my right foot when I was a junior in high school. But I never went to a doctor or had an x-ray to confirm that.

Ok so how's that? That weird enough for you? :-P

I never knew you were a fan of the Muscles from Brussels! :)

LOL. You know, I never really thought of myself as a fan; it just sort of...happened that I ended up watching all his movies. They are hilarious, by the way---unintentionally, of course.

Did you see the "Friends" episode with him?

Oh man, NO, I did not! LOL just thinking about it!
