Day 1311: Weird

It’s weird.  When I look at the weird photos I took yesterday, I have weirdly little to say about them.

Did I take those weird photos because

  • they looked weird?
  • I felt weird?
  • I think weird?
  • I like weird?

It’s weird that I’m writing about these weird photos without showing them to you. Maybe I’m doing those weird cognitive distortions of mind reading and fortune telling,  thinking you might not find my photos weird, at all.

Weird or not, here are my photos from yesterday, in weirdly non-chronological order.

It’s weird how weirdness is in the weird mind of the weird beholder..  I have this weird feeling that if I ask people to choose the weirdest photo here, I’ll see weirdly different choices.

Is it weird that I’m including a definition of weird at this weird point in this weird post?

weird
wird/
adjective
1.suggesting something supernatural; uncanny.
“the weird crying of a seal”
synonyms: uncanny, eerie, unnatural, supernatural, unearthly, otherworldly, ghostly, mysterious, strange, abnormal, unusual
noun SCOTTISH archaic
1. a person’s destiny.

1.induce a sense of disbelief or alienation in someone.

It’s weird to me that

  • the definition quotes “the weird crying of a seal,” since that is neither supernatural nor uncanny and
  • the word SCOTTISH is there, since my son is moving to Scotland for University.

What’s weird to you?

I have this weird idea that the comedian Louis C.K. uses the word “weird” a lot.  Here‘s the first weird thing that came up in weird YouTube when I typed “Louis CK weird”:

It’s weird that I watched only the first few seconds of that video before posting it here.

Weirdly, my son and I are driving a weird 90.9 miles on Saturday immediately after his appearance in the weird musical “Anything Goes” to see Louis C.K.

I am weirdly looking forward to that as well as any weird comments I might get on this post.

Wouldn’t it be weird if I didn’t thank all those who helped me create this weird post and you — of course! — for reading it?

  1. My weird thinking is that you like weird Ann! So do I. Weird is interesting and stimulating 😃

  2. This post was ‘weirdly’ amusing, Ann.😁

  3. It’s weird that “weird” is derived from Scottish because on Says You every weird word is described as having “a Scottish derivation”. But my favorite expression is “When the going gets weird the weird turn professional”.
    And while Louis CK has done a great job of turning weird into a profession I think it’s time for a word from a couple of professional goons.

  4. KAPOW! Weirded out by the weirdness of your weird photos. 🙂

    Actually — I’m smiling because their weirdness is somehow weirdly comforting. Does that make me a weirdo?

  5. Lol funny post. The post its and portrait are hilarious. Thanks for the follow too.

  6. There is beauty in weirdness! 🙂

  7. wow The Rock em Sock em Robots- now they brought back childhood memories!!

  8. I like weird photos because I am weird, just saying

  9. You must admit you asked for this:

    🙂

  10. I love weird, which is why I am usually a magnet to it….lol! I wouldn’t have it any other way.
