Six weird things about myself

I was tagged by Mental (I will get you) and Spicey (and you too my pretty!!) to disclose six weird things about myself that will NOT be used against me.

1. I love the company of children. They are good judges of characters - because children see beyond the masks we wear. I learnt a lot from children, especially what Jesus said of them –accepting the Kingdom of God like little children – without calculation, questions or doubts.

2. I loath small talk and making conversations, and “serious discussions on issues” - be they religion, art,politics or football. I switch off when people start arguing to prove their points of view.

3. I am a solitary person by nature and by desire.

4. I can go for days without talking to people – my stimulation comes from within not from without

5. I always feel sorry for competitors who lose. I hate to see the look of defeat on their faces when they come second, third or last.

6. I like the songs of the late John Denver, especially “Annie’s Song”
(Ann is one of my baptism names which I do not use)

It is too hot for me to think about who to tag next – so this time; I let off my potential victims.

Enjoy the summer everyone

to know that you are so much at peace with yourself gives me a delightful feeling to poignant to express in words ... otherwise i hope the kenyan blogsphere 'unfreezes' you once in a while ... you said you are a freezing rose

I love john denver's style - they just don't make them like they used to.
as for footie, you'd be thoroughly bored if you passed by chez moi, it's practically all we ever talk about :)

I like small talk, but I am just awful at it. It's like passing a kidney stone for me. LOL

1,3,4, and 6 - ditto! However, I'll add that as I've gotten older, I enjoy people more than I used to even though I still find solitude most energizing/creative.
