Fair enough. Yeah... typical, usual, expected... i.e. boring.

I've just always disliked "normal" and not because I associate it with "desirable" or "acceptable." I don't. I find "normal people" to be especially undesirable, personally. Give me abnormal any day.

Ahh, perhaps that's it. Abnormal... Deviant...
