Weirdo is too generic -- most everyone I know is weird in some way. But yes, I would argue that a character is someone who is actually fun to encounter and interesting to talk to you. A good character should have interesting stories to tell and make you glad when you encounter them. Clowns are people best avoided.

Between his views about lawns posted on TDPF and his plea for people to not dress like such slobs I saw on Facebook the other day, I don't think he needs any help from anyone else when it comes to being an old curmudgeon.
Oh, and if you're gonna nominate people for character status, you ought to at least spell their names right. There may be a C in Schinker, but there ain't one in Shinky.
