Okay, so I have been tagged with a meme. So I will try to reveal seven weird things about myself. There are plenty of weird things I can find about myself, just not that many I haven't blog about already. But here it goes:
1)I hate ham. I find it disgusting since I was a child. Even the name makes me feel nauseous. It is simply a vile meat. Or vile plastic. It tastes that bad.
2)As a child, I wanted to become a priest. A cardinal to be more precise, because I liked the uniform and because after watching The Thorn Birds with my mum, I thought cardinals had a really, really nice life. So that's how superficial I was. It took me a while to loose faith, but since it was based on such flimsy premises, it's no wonder. Oh, and for the record, now I find The Thorn Birds ridiculous and nauseating.
3)One of my ex-girlfriend has the name of my mother-in-law, and another one has the name of my mum. About the latter, my brother thought it was a proof of a profound Oedipus Complex.
4)Before I got married, I used to be a night owl, reading all night, watching TV, browsing the Internet. I still do it when my wife is away and I don't have to wake up early in the morning (like last night for instance). It is something I got from my years as a university student.
5)In 2006, I lost a lot of weight and I still can't figure how I managed to do it. I wanted to, as I was getting a bit (just a bit) chubby then, but I barely sacrifice the junk food, treats and beer I still eat/drink. My metabolism is a mystery to me.
6)I got a work published. My thesis, really, and it is still too small to hope for an academic career any time soon. I would rather publish novels. I got some ideas, but one does not write with ideas but with words, as Mallarmé said.
7)I am terribly vain. I like being called "doctor", in a way it ended up being my main motivation to do a PhD, and I feel such a pride when someone tells me I'm good at something, might it be acting, teaching, singing or whatever. And I don't take criticism very well.
And I am not going to tag anyone. It is difficult enough to get seven original things to say about yourself, then finding bloggers who will get tagged...
At Least It's Not Monkey Pox....Yet
