    Re: I was strange

    They are both grammatically correct. How do you want to use them?

    I want to tell someone that due to your activities I was surprised.

    No, they don't fit the context at all.

    Re: I was strange

    not a teacher

    If the other person had behaved oddly then you could say, "You were strange last night".
    Or, for example, "It was strange last night when you suddenly jumped up and down making those weird noises".

    I was surprised last night.
