Four Fun Facts – 50 Things About Me/My Blog – Reading Challenge – 30 Day Challenge There are all kinds of memes out there that bloggers are seizing, to both give them a blog-theme, and to connect with their readers. Sometimes the challenge reveals more about the person who compiled it than it does about those who choose to use it.
I’m surprised that the person who drew up the above list was able to finish it before they were arrested outside someone’s bedroom window, or had to rush off to their weekly psychotherapy appointment. So, with appropriate trigger-warnings, and suitably evasive diplomatic wording, I plan to work my way down the list, a couple of items at a time.
#1 – Weird things you do when you’re alone – Which is tied to
#14 – Something disgusting you do
The compiler of this list really needs some mental health aid. “Oh no you don’t!! Just because I keep my curtains drawn, you don’t get to ask shit like that.” The first question is about weird things – ‘things’ – plural, as if we all have a list of questionable personal activities. He sneaks back in at #14, by upping the ante to ‘something disgusting.’
I have a note here “Suffrage = Power” which, at this long-forgotten date, I take to mean more than merely the right to vote. I believe that I meant more like Christ’s quote, “Suffer the little children to come unto me.” I think I want to be allowed (suffered) to do whatever I want in the privacy of my own home/life, as long as I actively harm no-one else.
Then the English Nazi/amateur psychologist takes over, and asks who gets to decide what I, or anyone else, do, that can be considered ‘weird’ or ‘disgusting.’ Some people consider the word ‘moist’, disgusting. Compared to that, I’m normal. I march to the beat of a different flautist, because I feel that much of mankind is weird.
I’m never ‘alone’, to do anything weird. All the voices in my head see to that. ‘Does your brother talk to himself when he’s alone?? I don’t know. I’ve never been with him when he was alone.’ If I were, I would not be judgemental. I think that expecting others to bare their soul, and openly admit their peccadilloes, is both weird, and a bit disgusting. I’m saving my weird and disgusting revelations for my upcoming autobiography, the one that Steven King is ghost-writing.
Stop back again, perhaps next month, when I insult crazy people again, and answer another prompt or two. 😛
