Six Unspectacular Quirks of Sometimes Saintly Nick

Pink got tagged to do a MEME. Pink advised me to sit on ice to keep cool just before she tagged me to do the same MEME. Therefore, with a cool ass, I can get my overheated brain in gear and offer you these simple eccentricities for your erudition and amusement:

Six Unspectacular Quirks of Sometimes Saintly Nick

  • My favorite color is green: at the moment I am sitting in room (my library) painted green, wearing green shorts (no shirt: it’s too damned hot for a shirt), with a green candle (which is not lighted because it is too damned hot in here) beside me on my desk.

  • I seldom allow others to know how intelligent I am or how much I really comprehend about something; as Sun Tzu suggested in The Art of War, I always keep some wisdom in reserve, just in case.

  • I am an extremely easy mark, willing to give my last dollar to someone who claims to be in need, even when my gut tells me that I am being conned.

  • I always sleep in the nude, no matter how cold the temperature is.

  • I enjoy driving around and getting myself lost: I have discovered some really neat places and people while lost and I relish the challenge of getting myself un-lost.

  • I have more books than will ever fit on my bookshelves—and I have read all of them.

  3. I had to embiggen your photo of your bookshelves to check out what you've got there, but I still couldn't read most of the titles. If I lived near you, I'd be borrowing The Lives of John Lennon, The Tao of Peace, and The Real Little Best Fake Book Ever.

    I, too, like to get lost so I can see new sights and find my way back.

    Keep your ass nice and cool!

  6. Note to self: do not show up at Nick's house unexpectedly after bed time. ;)

    Personally, I hate getting lost. I never go anywhere without several maps and several pre-planned routes and alternate routes.

  10. AKELAMALU: My pleasure!

    CAROL: If you really want to peruse some of the titles, I’ve placed some of the books in my library (maybe 10%) in the Library thingie on my sidebar.

    Getting lost, except when I am on a tight schedule, is one of my favorite activities. I have a recent story about recently being lost in Louisville around where I lived when I was a wee kid that I must share some day.

    MIKE: I’ll click over to see your quirks in a minute or two.

    JODY: Yep, we are still hot, Alex and I were sitting on the deck until a few minutes ago. The breeze was nice, I came in to look at the blog; Alex took over my chair on the deck.

    THOMAS: Hey! I don’t answer the door nude: I have three robes at strategic locations in the house.

  11. ANGUS: Alex and I are doing what we can to keep cool. Primarily, we are napping during the day. I see that the forecast said we may have a break in the heat on Tuesday (forecast high = 81). If case you missed the TV news, today’s high was 96; my computer says that the present temp is 88. It is 86 inside the house.


    LUNA: You are most welcome.


    MIKE: You know, if I could work out how to deal with my oxygen I need, I would take you up on that. Rex has made a similar offer, so the two of you could share the burden of my presence.
