Friday's Top Ten

Top ten things about me that people think are quirky and maybe weird:

10. I'm a total klutz

  9. I make connections most others don't

  8. But the connections are not always the correct ones

  7. I usually say what I think

  6. I see things others miss

  5. And miss the obvious

  4. I embarrass myself in public (see #10 and #8 and #7 and #5)

  3. I sometimes don't plan ahead

  2. I'm rarely bored (see #4 and #3)

And the #1 thing about me that people think is quirky and maybe weird:

  1. I'm a writer


The writer thing is the weirdest! But us weirdos are all right.
Summer Ross said…
I can relate to number 1! LOL- thank you for the smile this morning! Happy Friday!
L.G.Smith said…
Yeah, that could totally be me too.

Happy Friday, Carol.
Karen Walker said…
Made me smile. Yes, people do think it is weird.
yep, writers sure are weirdos :)))
Anonymous said…
I have a few of those weird quirks myself. :)
Linda Kage said…
And they'll all reasons why we love you so much!! They make you Carol! What a good top ten!
Carol Kilgore said…
Alex - That's what I'm thinking :)

Stina - Yay!

Summer - Smiles are free :)

L.G. - And here I thought I was unique, LOL!

Karen - I'm happy you're smiling :)
BECKY said…
Hey Carol, the two of us are freakishly alike! :D
LR said…
Oh yes I can relate to a lot of these too. Especially 5 and 6.
Raquel.Somatra said…
I'm totally with you on #6 & 5... Most often, it's 6 that I'm exhibiting... then people think I'm a little ditzy. Finally, I get to show off my 5-ness, and then they say, woah, you're not as oblivious as I thought!
I think we're like this *because* we're writers! We have to let go of the obvious because they'll end up as cliches, so we're forced to search for something new.
Carol Kilgore said…
Dezmond - LOL!

Linda J - Comforting :)

Linda K -'re so sweet :)

Becky - Freakishly, eh?

LR - #5 makes me crazy!

Raquel - You could be on to something. I'll say that to Live-In Handyman the next time he points out something obvious that I missed :)
Arlee Bird said…
Being a writer explains all the rest of the list. I with you on these traits.

Tossing It Out
Linda G. said…
What? Writers are weird? Day-am, that explains a lot... ;)
Laura Eno said…
Haha! I love this list. It's We really are an odd bunch. :)
Happy weekend!
CATachresis said…
Well if nothing else you are interesting to know!!! lol My mother says that her train of thought has many carriages, but not all of them are connected!! I think you would get on lol
Carol Kilgore said…
Arlee - What a group we are!

Linda G - I think it's our wiring :)

Laura - Odd? Writerly? Is there a difference?

CATachresis - I LOVE that! So much so, I may steal it :)
Helena said…
OMG, we're almost twins! Only 2 doesn't fit me cause I can get bored. As for klutz - I got a huge bruise on my right hip after falling flat out during fencing and then hitting the same spot on a windowsill edge. Hope you don't injure yourself.
Carol Kilgore said…
Helena - Ouch! I almost took out my big toe the first part of the summer with a closet door. Life as a writer can be dangerous :)
VR Barkowski said…
We have an awful lot in common, esp. that klutz thing. The only time I'm bored is when I'm doing a routine task like making out bills. There's always another intriguing book to read, a blog to visit, a new place to explore, or some weird topic to research. I don't really understand boredom, but then I'm a writer and you know what we're like. *eye roll*
And you do the Top Ten every Friday on The Tiki Hut! It's always fun to see what topic you have chosen.
Carol Kilgore said…
VR - Oh, gosh, YES! Routine tasks bore me to tears. Five minutes or less and I'm ready to scream!

Karen - Something different every week. It's how I roll :)
Anonymous said…
I like to say what I think too. This can get me in trouble, but I just don;t care.
Glynis Jolly said…
My gosh, Carol. You sound an awful lot like me. I think the only difference it that I do not consider myself a writer. A journalist, maybe, but I have a strong feeling that I an an ameteur and hobbiest of writing.
Carol Kilgore said…
Stephen - LOL! I understand totally.

Glynis - No matter what we write, if we write, we are writers.
Anonymous said…
Interesting. I guess I'm a little weird, too :o)
Carol Kilgore said…
Janet - Welcome to the club!
Old Kitty said…
AND you have great taste in firefighting creatures! Two and four legged kind!! :-) Take care
Shirley Wells said…
Oh yes, the writing thing is definitely weird. I tell myself that if I wasn't a writer, I'd be the one hearing voices in my head all the time and people would label me crazy. Better to be quirky and weird than crazy, right? ;)
Nas said…
Awww....loved your top ten this week! I could relate to most!
Carol Kilgore said…
Old Kitty - Yes! Let's not forget the yummy firefighting creatures :)

Shirley - LOL! So, so true :)

Nas - Cool :)
I'm with you on numbers 2, 4, and 10! Julie
Anonymous said…
I can relate to 6 and 5.

Oh, and 2. I'm also rarely bored.
Carol Kilgore said…
Julie - Sorry, I almost missed you! Lots of us are klutzy :)

Medeia - Many of us are a lot alike.
