Well, it’s the second time I’ve been tagged for the 8 things meme, so I should be doing it. The first time was by Thinking Girl; this time it’s fellow new contributor to the Self Portrait Challenge blog, Rachel (the Metaphorical Magpie) [notice how I slipped in that I’m now one of the SPC authors]. So, without further Apu ado, here are my eight things about me.

  1. I’m sometimes a bit lazy. No, that’s not what I mean; not lazy. It’s more a question of using shortcuts (like the first five items on the list). It’s got to the point that I can spend more time inventing something to same me time, than doing the thing itself. A matter of interest, I guess; creating the shortcut is often more fun than doing the repetition.
  2. Many people think I’m weird. To me, that’s not an insult; more of a statement of fact. By most standards, I am. (Okay, I work in an office, in an insurance company; t’s not hard to stand out…) Sometimes I’ll say strange things (like “Don’t put down Topher Grace, he’s played in movies with Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bruce Willis, Andy Garcia, Kirsten Dunst, George Clooney, Carl Reiner, Matt Damon, Elliott Gould”), or quote, without any introduction, from The Simpsons or some song.
  3. I’ve always thought I was a city guy. I love having everything around and not having to drive to go anywhere. Then I discovered that I don’t do much in the city and often want to get out of there. One thing’s for sure tho, I might have been born in the suburbs, that’s not a place for me. Still, just beat my record for the longest time lived in the same city: 12 years and one month. Half of that time at the same address (not bad for someone who used to move every two years).

That being said, stay tuned for my Sunday Story segment on Self Portrait Challenge!
