Definitely a more polite word for how I'm usually described. XD

The very fact that we smoke pipes in this day and age makes us all eccentric, methinks.

Of course, so do loyalty in friendship, honesty in business, faithfulness in romance, tolerance to those with a different way of life, compassion to the unfortunate and common human decency in our interactions with everyone we meet.

We should all be proud to be hella eccentric. Cool

Meet most of the requirements plus I'm a stick in the mud according to my wife.
Another term for grouch I guess.

http://www.amazon.com/Pipe-Smoker-Entertaining-Scientific-Revelations/dp/B0006D32HE/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1281370338&sr=1-2

This book is right up your alley for all things about the behavior and characteristics of a pipe smoker. Interesting and amusing perspective, based upon interviews, opinion polls, other related "scientific" study. Definitely not your typical pipe and tobacco book.

And..., oh yes, I've been called eccentric...

Yes, although I am married, though it took until I was almost 40. I was a third child, but with 7 years between me and my next oldest sib, which in birth order studies is counted as being like n eldest child. Will listen to the opinions of others, but if they disagree they better be ready to defend their opinion vigorously. Nothing odd in my food tastes, other than liking to drink sweet pickle juice.

Besides eccentric sounds nicer than some of the other words that have been used to describe me. Twisted Evil

Who needs a checklist. I'm strange enough but mostly harmless. I think that qualifies me as eccentric Laughing

Hmm, can’t remember having done anything eccentric in my whole life (okay, except starting to smoke a pipe and registering on this board, maybe)...

Nonconforming attitude – Pathologically so.

Creative – Music, working with my hands.

Intense curiosity – Totally. If I get interested in something, I research it or read about it extensively.

Idealistic – In a certain sense of the word.

Happy obsession with a hobby or hobbies – Um, yeah. My girlfriend always laughs at me because I get so into my hobbies. See intense curiosity above.

Known very early in his or her childhood they were different from others – Yes, but not in a "short bus" way.

Highly intelligent – You tell me.

Opinionated and outspoken – Hell yeah.

Unusual living or eating habits – I'm not sure what usual is. I do eat a lot of sardines, and I love to cook (which I suppose is not that unusual).

Not interested in the opinions or company of others – I'm definitely a loner, although I have some great friends. There is a VERY small fraction of society whose company I can tolerate for more than a short while. I like to spend a lot of time by myself. Most people are idiots.

Mischievous sense of humor – I'm very sarcastic, and like to trick people.

Single – Nope. Found my soul mate.

Usually the eldest or an only child – Older of two brothers.
