One word to describe you..

What is one word that describes you best, and why?


I ask this question of you because it took me some time to come up with one for me, since Weirding (a verb, to make something weird) isn't really a word.

adj : highly involved or intricate; "the Byzantine tax structure"; "convoluted legal language"; "convoluted reasoning"; "intricate needlework"; "an intricate labyrinth of refined phraseology"; "the plot was too involved"; "a knotty problem"; "got his way by labyrinthine maneuvering"; "Oh, what a tangled web we weave"- Sir Walter Scott; "tortuous legal procedures"; "tortuous negotiations lasting for months" [syn: Byzantine, convoluted, involved, knotty, labyrinthine, tangled, tortuous]


Look at those synonyms....Im definitely knotty, tangled, Byzantine (wow! I need to grow one of those square beard thingies), and my wife would agree that, at times, I can be tortuous (I cant help it if I like to ask questions that people couldn't possibly know the answer to! Be creative and make shit up! Works for me!)


So whats YOUR word? (I ask this like people who come here and read this blog actually leave comments...)


Benticore (Byzantine Torturer with a Labyrinthine mind and a convoluted vocab...)

Well, I need some time to think of the word, but the other day one of my Japanese coworkers translated my last name into

"Cotton torturing samurai with beauty out of italy"

Make of that what you will
