My friend Nel Nominated me for the Mystery Blogger Award. She asked three questions. If you want to see the answers to questions one and two, you’ll have to see my previous post. Question #3 was a stumper. She wanted me to describe myself in three words. Here it goes:
Bat shit Crazy kinda sums me up. Oh crap, my spell checker is saying that I can’t use bat shit because it’s really batshit (no space!?) and now I’m down to two words. That’s inconvenient. Now what? Ok ok, Batshit Crazy Pants! Wait! That sounds like I have batshit (no space) on my crazy pants. Hmmm… Alright, I’m going to lose the pants. I know what you are thinking and stop it right now!
I’m back to batshit (no space…still seems wrong.) I think I’m going to lose the “batshit” because that seems to be getting me in trouble and that no-space thing is really stressing me out. Wait, I might be onto something here…space-loving. Hyphens kind of give the illusion of a space when there really isn’t one there. I love my space, but for most people, it’s just an illusion. I guess I can live with that.
So let’s see, we are left with “space-loving.” I count that as one word, thanks to that illusion-producing hyphen. Yikes, there’s another one! As a space-loving creature, I’m also an introvert, so let’s throw that in there. Damn, if I hadn’t made up that “hyphen linking two words together makes one-word rule,” I’d be done now. But no, I’ve got that whole “hoist by my own petard” situation going on here and I have no one to blame but myself. I guess that was sort of understood, but I thought I’d drive the point home.
To recap, we have space-loving and introvert. Wait! I think I’ve got it! Bat-shit-crazy space-loving introvert! That’s me!
P.S. I still miss my spaces, but I am mollified knowing that I hyphenated the hell out of it!
P.P.S. I also like astronomy.
