    I'm not really wierd. Different yes, but not wierd.

    I started keeping fish when I was 10. All the Latin names are still in my head. I hardly ever forget one, and then it's only temporarily. I only have to see a Latin name once and I'll remember it forever.

    I started doing Latin at school when I was 11. I was totally hopeless at it.

    Question is, can you pronounce them all? ;)

    Weird? I think everyone is! We all have our quirks.

    I take Latin..... I usually remember scientific names too.
    And yes, I would consider myself weird, lol.

    Ooh, I am!!! Everyone says so, even me! :D I am a huge Lady Gaga fan (if you like her, that's a sign of being weird), love weird clothes (facial piercings included), the smell of the air coming from the vacuum cleaner and the smell of garlic and freshly chopped onions, and lots of other things. Like yesterday at Walmart, I was checking on the bettas there and picking up each cup and talking softly to them, calling them things like, "love, baby, beautiful". And then I noticed my sister standing right next to me and she looked at me like I was out of my mind for talking to fish, but I know I'm not........ Oh, and I also have this thing where I'm not too shy to just go out there and do something, like how I started dancing in the middle of the aisle at Kohl's, like really dancing. Lol. Yeah, I'm weird.

    I guess I'm "weird" LOL. At least my brother thinks so.

    Here are the reasons he thinks I'm "weird".
    For one I'm REALLY short for my age.
    I spend a lot of my time on Fishlore.
    I'm not into "teenager" things.
    I'm shy.
    I don't think I'm weird though. THEY (most teenagers) Are the weird ones ;).
    Oh and i still play with dolls and make tons of things for them, and have a huge stuffed animal collection.
    Also i have MTS VERY badly.....

    So am I, I think. I drive artics? Is a semi the same as a "big-rig"?

    Yes. :)

    I drink a lot of coffee. Always have. If I don't have one shortly before bed I won't sleep.

    I'm very weird. And I'm OK with that.

    I'm five inches shorter than the projected final height my pediatrician gave me when I was a toddler. Oops?

    I would not say I'm weird; I prefer warped. At least, my sense of humor is. Unlike a lot of people these days, however, I cringe at stupid folks hurting themselves rather than laughing at it. If that's weird, than I'm glad I'm weird.

    I tend to look at things differently than most people. I often see the one detail that others have missed. This has served me well when experimenting with the breeding of "difficult" species.

    On a scale of 1-10, I'd say my weirdness rates an 8.

    I would say everyone is weird in their own way....

    Lol, you guys and gals make me giggle. No one is "weird" we are all unique in our own ways. The sooner we realize that, the faster we stop thinking people are weird lol.

    Personally, aside from fish keeping, one of my other hobbies is horror anything, events, movies, conventions. It is my wife and I's hobby, if you ever met me, you would never know... Weird huh? ;)

    I'm agency so it varies. Mostly mail to hubs, or general haulage to store distribution depots.

    My youngest son hauls mail in a straight truck. He is a class 'A' holder like me but 3 weeks in a semi and he decided it was not for him and took the straight truck job.

    I am what is called a swap driver. Some companies call us volume drivers. I take full loads 76 miles, drop them, hook to an empty and return. I do this 2-3 times a day. I then help the city drivers with pick ups. I have to be able to every driving job and every route at the terminal if needed. Even though I am the senior driver I do my best to pull my weight. Generally I work 12-14 hours a day and Saturdays when needed.

    Right now I'm double-manning mail until Christmas., 5 hr drive, break, back up the road with a return load. There's not a lot of actual work you can do with that.... :)
