Wild Card Wednesday: 5 Things You Don’t Know About Me

My friend Jenna recently participated in this Internet meme. On the Other Hand has been so seriously lately that I thought it would be good to inject some silliness into the conversation.

1. On foggy days like today I pretend that The Mist is nonfiction and try to figure out how best to protect my apartment from (spoiler alert!) otherworldly creatures. I can neither confirm nor deny that my strategies for self-preservation in this situation have only grown more elaborate over the years.

2. If I never eat turkey again I wouldn’t be disappointed. I know it’s the traditional main course for Thanksgiving but it’s such a dry and flavourless dish. We should either eat a meat-free dinner that day or substitute a delicious option like ham.

3. Steampunk irritates me and I don’t know why.

4. When I was very young I thought that humans weren’t physiologically capable of seeing the moon during the day. For some reason I was able to see it but for years pretended that I, too, could not see anything moon-shaped in the sky when the sun was shining. I didn’t know what would happen to me if anyone found out that I had this ability but I decided not to take any chances. Drew heard this story a while ago, thought it was charming and hilarious and every so often will test my “superpower.” Of course I deny everything. ๐Ÿ˜‰

5. I have a birthmark on my back and left shoulder. The skin on these areas of my body is a few shades darker than it is on the rest of me. Some of my relatives have olive-colouredย skin, others are quite pale. It’s fascinating to see all of those genes expressed on the same person.

    1. I may or may not still occasionally pretend the floor is lava and I have to hop from one various object to the next to get around my house.
    2. I second your feelings on turkey. Infact, I hate 80% of the food served at traditional thanksgiving meals. They should rename the holiday “National Unfortunate Flavors Day”.
    3. Steam punk upsets me too.

    P.S. Thanks for the link. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • That is awesome! I haven’t played that game in years.

      Traditional Thanksgiving food just seems so bland to me. I’ll eat stuff like mashed potatoes when I’m sick but to have it as part of a celebratory meal seems kind of silly.

      And you’re welcome for the link. I enjoy all of your posts, I just don’t always know what to say about them.

  2. It’s interesting that you don’t like Steampunk. Sometimes I fall asleep at night thinking about Steampunk projects.

  3. A couple more random comments.. I have an incredible craving for a thick slice of fresh turkey on a slice of home baked white bread with globs of mayo and a few leafs of romaine lettuce. Also if your dad is anything like me it was probably a good thing you kept quiet about the day moon viewing.
