Jim says I am "an anomaly wrapped up in an enigma".

Um, thanks hon, I think.

Anomaly: an irregularity, a misproportion, or something that is strange or unusual. In particular, as used in the sciences, it means deviation from the common rule, i.e. in the experimental sciences it means difference from the norm or average of a given quantity.

Enigma: mystery, something that baffles understanding and cannot be explained;
something or someone that is mysterious or puzzling [Greek ainissesthai to speak in riddles

I don't think it is any secret that I'm a little off. I'm OK with that. Normal is boring. Some people like me just the way I am so NYAH. Just because nature's fury fascinates me, doesn't mean I WANT bad things to happen. i.e. the earthquake talk. Jim rolls his eyes at me a lot when I talk about it and says "you can't wait to survive a 10.0 can you?" (um..NO.) - and many of you stick your fingers in your ears and go la la la. Perhaps I missed my calling as a scientist or storm chaser. LOL. Did you know that there are vacations you can book to ride with storm chasers?? So, see, I'm not the only one!

um. i am def one of the ones to stick my fingers in my ears and go la la la....but i do like being "non-normal". so i'm with you on that. :-) at least i like it to a degree. sometimes i am a little more dysfunctionally crazy than i would like, but for the most part i'm ok with it. or at least 40/60. :-)

my cousin would love to chase storms with you due, she is totally fascinated by that kind of stuff, so you def aren't alone!
