Six, Weird Things About Me

Woo hoo! Finally got tagged with the "Six, Weird Things" meme by someone, so I can stop sitting over here in the corner, pouting & feeling left out ;) Thanks, Dennis.

And as others have noted, it'll be a chore to restrict myself to just six...

  1. I'm a native Texan, yet I'm not any sort of redneck, gun-nut, or Republican. I also purely can't stand mainstream Country Music. Like the late Molly Ivins, "I dearly love the state of Texas, but I consider that a harmless perversion on my part, and discuss it only with consenting adults."

  2. I'm a Myers-Briggs INFP personality type, which, I suppose, makes me weird for a guy. Yet I'm quite happy with this state of affairs and couldn't care less if this makes me less "manly" to some people. As a matter of fact, I find that whole, shallow, "all this and a big cup of fizzy testosterone" idea of masculinity to be highly annoying.

  3. I'm an cradle Episcopalian, and love our traditional liturgy, but I'm about as far away from believing in a theistic, "personal" God as you can get and still be considered any sort of "Christian." I suppose I'm as much a panentheist as anything, and The Episcopal Church is one of the only, mainline churches who'll have me. If they ever change their mind about that, I'll just have to jump right in to the UUA.

  4. For a supposedly cultured, intellectual person (much less an Episcopalian), it's weird that I dislike wine. Well, except for sweet stuff like some German white wines, port, etc... Now good beer, on the other hand, is the nectar of the gods. But good beer, mind you - none of this watery, American junk. Stouts, porters, German hefeweizens, etc... that's the stuff.

  5. I'm mildly obsessive about keeping important things like my keys, wallet, cell phone, etc... in the same, exact place in my house when I put them down. It bugs me to no end to not know "where my important stuff is" if it's not on me.

  6. I get a bit distracted and testy if I'm denied Internet access for too long (say, more than a few days), but will happily go much longer without things like TV or newspapers.

Let me think now... I'd love to see answers to this from Rev. Susan, that Kaeton woman, the Mad Priest, and Bill Carroll :)

good luck getting MP to post his 6 things... perhaps if a few of us mentioned it to him...

big fan of Hefeweizen, btw

Mmmmm...a glass of hefeweizen with a big plate of jägerschnitzel, red cabbage, and some spätzle to soak up the extra gravy. Yum!

Hey, thanks for adding me to your blogroll! I guess I'm gonna have to post things occasionally, huh.

It's a variety of Wiener schnitzel served with a dark mushroom sauce. ("Jäger" is German for "Hunter")

We've got an Austrian place here in old, downtown Plano, TX called Jorg's Cafe Vienna which does a fantastic rendition of this! Yum!
