I'm On A Perfectionists' List

I love it. This is one that really made me think. I suddenly found myself on a perfectionists' list on Twitter.

It's fairly appropriate, although I don't know what guidelines were used to get me on it. And I might be kicked off at any time, since my inclusion may have been a mistake.

I'd like to think someone out there really saw something in me and said, "This guy." But I don't know. I know I'm not paying that much attention to everyone else. So the chances of someone paying that much attention to me might be too much to expect.

On the other hand, who wants anyone paying that close of attention to you? With all the stalkers and political assassins on every horizon. This might come as a surprise to everyone, but it seems like I've had death threats before. I say it "seems like" it, because my memory isn't photographic ... but I seem to remember at least one or two in the past. Everyone says they've had death threats, but I'm one of the actual people who seems to actually remember one or two. Why? I don't want to reopen any old wounds, but it had to do with things I used to write on the internet. Like now, but I don't truly get under anyone's skin now.

Anyway, back to being a perfectionist. If I really am a perfectionist type, it's not something I'm really able to live up to. I have a crummy car. I had to pry the door open today thanks to ice, and it didn't bother me that much. My garage is tumbling over from boxes. But in certain areas of my life, definitely, it's what I strive for.

Of all the lists I've been on, this is the one I like the best. I hope I can stay on and not get kicked off right away.
