    It strikes me as (being) odd.

    Hi!


    1)It strikes me as odd.
    2)It strikes me as being odd.

    I know that the former exists and is very common, but can I say the latter as well or does it have a slightly different meaning?

    Re: It strikes me as (being) odd.

    They are both possible and have the same meaning.
