Weird s&*t

A meme ladyeuthanasia tagged me with:

RULES: Each player of this game starts off with 10 weird things/habits/little known facts about yourself. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 10 weird habits/things/little known facts as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you need to choose10 people to be tagged and list their names.

Okay, I'm not really into tagging people, so I'll skip that part...but I'll bet I can come up with ten weird things about me (and I'll even try to avoid anything I might have mentioned here before, like tripping out on an adult hallucinogen at age six):

1) I once held a living frog down in plaster to take a cast of its little body (for Meet the Hollowheads). It squeaked like crazy, but was fine afterwards.

2) I absolutely detest coffee.

3) I collect bolo ties (and even wear them!).

4) I've never owned a cell phone, an Ipod, a Blackberry, or a car that unlocks with anything other than an old-fashioned metal key.

5) Even as a child I thought the idea of marriage was some repulsive leftover from the patriarchal Dark Ages, and I enjoyed horrifying all of my relatives by avowing to them that I would never marry. I kept that promise.

6) My dreams are often full of detailed and spectacular architecture, although I have very little interest in architecture during my waking life.

7) I saw The Exorcist 11 times during its first three months of release.

8) I think David Lynch could well be the sexiest man ever. He's still hot, even at 60.

9) I've never fainted, broken a bone, had an extended hospital stay, or taken prescription drugs for more than a month (I don't take any now).

10) My tax returns list me as "television writer", although I don't watch television (unless The Sopranos or Rome is on).

Okay, there ya go - some mildly weird, some full-on freaky.
