25 Odds and Ends About Me

PJ over at Real Men Drive Minivans tagged me with a meme yesterday. I am always open to a decent meme because it is free blog fodder. So I switched off the part of my brain that is constantly searching for blog material for a little while and answered a few questions. I am not too interesting so I hope you don't fall asleep.

  1. Name someone with the same birthday as you. Mel Torme. I don't care anything about him other than this awesome appearance on Seinfeld. Skip to the 5:50 mark to see the velvet fog sing a song to Kramer.

  2. Where was your first kiss? On the mouth.
  3. Have you ever seriously vandalized someone else’s property? Yes, and I have the prison tats to prove it
  4. Have you ever hit someone of the opposite sex? No.
  5. Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people? Only if drunken karaoke counts. I have retired from that circuit but I used to do an awesome rendition of "You Never Even Called Me By My Name" by David Allen Coe.
  6. What’s the first thing you notice about your preferred sex? I noticed my wife's eyes.
  7. What really turns you off? Idiots
  8. What do you order at Starbucks? I don't order much because $5 coffee is just insane. I usually get a latte. I am very adventurous.
  9. What is your biggest mistake? Not backing my wife during some past family conflicts
  10. Have you ever hurt yourself on purpose? I have slapped myself in the face to keep me awake when driving. Does that count?
  11. Say something totally random about yourself. I hate Cheez-its.
  12. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity? Tim McGraw about a thousand times. I take that as a compliment.
  13. Do you still watch kiddie movies or TV shows? Yes, TV with Braden and cartoon movies with or without him
  14. Did you have braces? Yes, and like my Friend PJ headgear as well.
  15. Are you comfortable with your height? No. I would prefer to be tall enough to spit on other people and tell them it's raining.
  16. What is the most romantic thing someone of the preferred sex has done for you? Married me
  17. When do you know it’s love? When you are willing to do anything just to be with them (including skipping ballgames or willfully watching reality TV)
  18. Do you speak any other languages? I studied french in high school and still know a few words of that. Spending time in Italy taught me how to read almost any fully Italian menu. You have to have priorities when learning a language.
  19. Have you ever been to tanning salon? My wife worked in one so I visited her. Never have I or never will I tan in a salon.
  20. Have you ever ridden in a limo? After our wedding
  21. What’s something that really annoys you? Right now? There are too many things to list. Right now I am annoyed by society's requirement for me to work for a living.
  22. What’s something you really like? Sausage
  23. Can you dance? Not even a little bit
  24. Have you ever been rushed by an ambulance into the emergency room? No
  25. Tag 5 people. I am not going to tag anyone because no one ever responds to my tags. So if you want to do this meme do it and have some fun. I am giving an open tag to all.

Thanks for doing this, I'm always nervous about tagging people with these things.

Katherine said...

I'd do your meme, but I've already added 2 posts today. 3 might be going overboard! :)

Love the Seinfeld clip.

rxBambi said...

On the mouth! LMAO! thank God, that could have been fairly traumatic. Especially for her. Ha!
Great meme. I might do it tmro. I try to stick to 1 post a day (gets to hard to keep up with multiple posts)

Captain Dumbass said...

Good answers. I got hit with this one too. I'm terrible at doing meme's. Maybe I'll actually do it this time.

surprised mom said...

Glad you did the meme and you said you weren't interesting!

Manic Mommy said...

Who doesn't like Cheez-its? That's just weird. Do you like Goldfish?

otin said...

LOL! on the mouth! hahaha!

I can definitely see the Tim Mcgraw resemblance.

WeaselMomma said...

Those are some pretty interesting facts. I hope I never blew off a tag from you. I usually really suck at keeping up with tags.

Melinda said...

I agree completely about looking like Tim McGraw especially in your previous header.
I'm going to give this meme to Rob BTW
