Tagged: Seven Weird Things About Me

The following are brought to you courtesy of Theresa, who tagged me as part of the 'Seven Weird Things About Me' thing. It was difficult to limit myself to only seven:
  1. My second toes are longer than my big toes.
  2. As a kid in the suburbs practicing karate at a pretty traditional Japanese school, they actually taught me the sword kata to assist someone committing seppuku (suicide.) I remember practicing it (the kata) before a belt test.
  3. Not only am I a music addict, I get completely infatuated with songs/albums on occasion and play them repeatedly until I drive everyone around me crazy.
  4. I find women who play bass hot.
  5. I'm convinced that one could have a kicking bluegrass band that adapted classic ska and punk songs. And I plan to take up mandolin before I turn 40.
  6. When brushing my teeth, I also brush my tongue, having being brought up to do so because supposedly it helps keep bad breath at bay.
  7. I'm 25 percent Greek, 25 percent hillbilly (of probable Scots Irish or English extraction) and 50 percent Belgian. The practical consequences of this are olive skin, a certain degree of hirsuteness, and a fondness for bourbon. Flic believes it also brings a certain knack for making biscuits.

I've got the toe thing, too. I think it's called Morgan's Foot. Or Morgan's Toe. Something like that. I believe it's a sign of superior intelligence.

Hee. Morton's toe.

There is actually a fascinating Wikipedia entry on it. Among other fascinating tidbits it was the idealized foot form in Greek sculture; hence, the Statue of Liberty's feet also have this trait.

See's_toe for more.

Sweet! So it's everyone else who's a freak.

OK, toe weirdo(s). Thanks for playing, Dweller. And I can't wait to go see your blueska punk band.
