anyone else ever sort of take on characteristics of other people they like or impressed by etc....? I think we all do to some extent, obviously. like a catchphrase from SNL, or hanging out with a best bud that you develop the habit of saying the same joke or comment back and forth. so you already know I'm weird and considering myself way to much. but today I was returning some mail-service dvd's at blockbuster (Born RIch, and Beautiful Losers) and trading one for Star Trek. and talking to the lady there about how I got the email and hopefully the computer would show I was allowed a free dvd trade ( since I pay for the cheaper service where you can't). anyway, I was talking and explaining and thinking on the way out how I was acting like some character from tv or someone I know.. couldn't figure it out and then I lost it. but I really do that, the most distinct is this student I had years ago who had the cutest way of saying he didn't know something by sort of tightening his lips and squinting a little with raised eyebrows. sort of a subtle as if you're about to get water splashed on your face maybe sort of look. and then he'd shrug his shoulders just a bit. well I noticed I started doing that when talking to someone and explaining how I didn't know and then sort of giving that it-isn't-likely or I'm sorry sort of gesture from that student. so yeah weird huh. something sor tof chameleon like. I bet it's some sort of innate thing maybe we all do subconsciously
TODAY I was up at 7am swimming laps at the pool. woot woot. getting back to it hopefully somewhat regularly now. was back at the gym for the usual chest day at 1230 before lunch. excellent day out today and we're supposed to get ice storm coming thursday. btw, if you haven't noticed on this blog, if you ever move to Oklahoma prepare to include the weather in your conversationa a lot. ha .
