Curiouser & curiouser! Last week’s Curious Tuesday was such a hit (with almost 400 comments!) that I thought we’d do it again! But before we do, I wanted to revisit some of my favourite answers…
1. What is the strangest compliment you’ve ever received?
“A gentleman in a Trader Joe’s grocery store once leaned into me, inhaled deeply, and said (and I quote) “Day-um, girrrl, you smell gooood. Makes me wanna spend some MONEY on you, or sumpthin’!”” — Alexandra Franzen
“I love your eyes. They look like pickles.” — Mary Mo
“(First you have to know hair is realy curly, like those pantene comercials) My History of Design teacher (A really sweet old man who smokes from a pipe!) grabbed my hair IN THE MIDDLE OF AN EXAM and said ‘OH! LOOK! THIS IS PURE ART NOUVEAU! EVERYONE LOOK AT THIS!! :D’” — Gilraen
“I was once told my hair was so healthy and smooth, it would be excellent for killing little rodents by filling their underground tunnels with it so it would tear their little faces open (by my ex-hairdresser). I felt a bit awkward that she was going to use my cut hair for such cruelties ! (But she did mean it as a compliment)” — Evelien D.
“Some random stranger on the street told me, “You’re a natural beauty, you look like my wife….when she was alive”. Ehm, thanks? haha” — Aislinn D.
“You’re so satanic and you don’t even know it.” — June
“Haha it happened a couple of months ago. I was getting out of a car with my friend and a homeless man looked at us, turned to my friend’s boyfriend and said “Damn brother you’re going to need a shotgun tonight.” It still makes me laugh.” — Bri
““You look like my ex-wife. She’s dead. You have beautiful eyes like her … eyes you just want to … punch.” Scary drunk man outside the bar I work in. It was a pretty strange moment!” — Em
“Also, a homeless guy told me I look like Thumbelina and that if I was his wife he would stop cheating on women.” — Zoomusicgirl
“girl, as long as I got a face, you got a place to sit!” — Zena
2. What’s your little-known talent?
“I’m obsessed with mycology! Mushrooms mushrooms mushrooms :P I can even cook up a pretty mean puffball stew…” — Corrie
“Rap. I write jaw-droppingly vulgar rhymes that could rival the likes of lil kim or nicki minaj…while at work…in my desk job.” — Lisa
“Knowledge of herbal remedies and edible plants. I used to want to be a witch doctor. (I am dead serious)” — Kara
“I can nurse hermit crabs through almost any mishap. Both arms ripped off and needs to regrow them? Molting above-ground? Needs hand-feeding for a month? I’m all over it. Actually, I’m a go-to person for raising anything small, revolting, and tank-dwelling, now that I think about it. I just finished raising the biggest, ugliest sphinx caterpillar ever for an entomology class. I even had to help him shed his skin because the domestic ones sometimes have trouble with that. So here’s me with the tweezers at two in the morning, trying to keep this giant, angry green caterpillar from undressing himself to death…” — Mara
3. What do you obsessively search for on eBay?
“Well, I don’t shop or go on eBay. The last time I went on it I was looking for ‘Full House’ memorabilia. Is that kinda weird? Because I feel like it really is, but I loved that show with all my heart. Don’t judge me.” — Alexis
4. When you were a child, who did you worship & want to be like?
“Matilda from the Roald Dahl book, so that I could move stuff with my mind, steal biscuits etc” — Siobhan
“Xena. No shit- I had the trill down pat and used to run around my (ridiculously huge because I lived in the middle of the woods) yard doing it and throwing things.” — Bre
“I wanted to be like the Pink Power Ranger, but I always had to play the yellow one becuse I’m Asian haha.” — Christine
“Snoopy. For real. The first thing I ever wanted to be was a World War I flying ace.” — Steff Metal
“I wanted to be my aunt. She was the first amazing lesbian/gender queer influence in my life, but certainly not the last!” — Margo
“Truthfully, I wanted to be a wolf.” — Paige
5. What was your palate band?
“The Faint. Followed closely by VNV Nation. Ronan Harris may be short and bald and a bit pudgy, but I’d marry him tomorrow if he asked me to.” — Mara
HAHAH I love you guys!
