Five weird things about me

Ok, so I got a phonecall earlier from Liz letting me know I'd been 'tagged'. I don't know what's wrong with me in the new year. Could be that I'm turning into a mushhead, but first I'm joining facebook, now I'm doing one of these meme dealies?! Keara must be getting to me.

First the rules:

The first player of this game starts with the topic “five weird habits of yourself,” and people who get tagged need to write an entry about their five weird habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next five people to be tagged and link to their web journals. Don’t forget to leave a comment in their blog or journal that says “You are tagged” (assuming they take comments) and tell them to read yours.

Anyway, 5 weird things about me (that you didnt need/want to know):

1. I'm quite intelligent, but I'd rather do manual labour than sit behind a desk pushing paper/writing code. [Pushing pixels, however, does appeal to me. May have to look into doing the MSc in Multimedia in DCU or something undergrad in NCAD.]

2. My musical taste is (viewed by others) dubious. Personally I like it. ;-)

3. I work better at night than during the day. That's not just something I say, literally I do. You can throw the "but your productivity is affected" argument at me all day, won't make it any less true though.

4. I never forget promises I make, I just don't follow through on some of them. I'll even feel guilty afterwards for not having kept it. Sometimes I feign forgetfulness in order to shirk my responsibility.

5. I am the Devil's Advocate. If you argue with me, we may have the same opinion but I'll still argue the opposite point. I'll do it well and with finesse too, because I'll always steer the argument to where it's a case of your opinion vs mine. What's more, you can't tell me that my opinion is wrong, because it's mine. Somehow (thankfully) I managed to stay out of debating in college.

I'll finish this post with a quote from The Dude: "That's, like, just your opinion, man..."

I'm not going to 'tag' five people though. The weirdness ends here...

...and that
