Hi there! My name is James, and welcome to my World of Weird.
To get the formalities out the way: I’m 28, I have a Master’s degree in Ancient History, at some undetermined point in the future I want to pursue another degree in Ancient Near Eastern Culture, and before starting this blog I ran The B-Horror Blog for just over three years.
So, why A World of Weird? Not in a pretentious ‘Oh my god I’m so alternative it hurts’ kind of way, but I do consider myself (or perhaps my world view) to be just a little left of norm. Ideally I like to think that half of me is a very responsible, very prudent adult, and the other half is a giggling, bubbly inner child.
A homebody, I enjoy spending my time watching poorly made b-movies, reading as much as I can, playing video games, talking to my cats (although I swear I do keep human company) and dancing around in my kitchen in my underwear to Britney Spears at 2am on a work night. When all else fails, or I feel I need to do something to counteract my heroin-like addiction to pizza, I may decide to go to gym.
I’m a fairly good baker, I can untangle Christmas lights like it’s no one’s business, and I have a bizarre fear of running out of dish sponges. I could die a happy man if my dream of being dog piled on by a herd of squirrels came true (for the purposes of this dream, squirrels will gather in large enough numbers to be considered a herd).
Once you’re done here, do pop on over to Literary Homicide with Tropical Mary. She’s my partner in crime and is willing to read books of a FAR crappier nature than I am.
