8 random things about me

by kalbzayn on May 15, 2007

I shouldn’t have to do this since Bonnie clearly skipped step 4, but since she is one of my two regular readers, I better not piss her off.

  1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
  2. People who are tagged write their own blog post about their 8 things and post these rules.
  3. At the end choose 8 people to get tagged and list their names.
  4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and to read your blog.

So here are 8 things that probably won’t make it into my future best selling autobiography.

  1. I do not like licorice, salted or otherwise, but I do love cottage cheese with salt and pepper added.
  2. I once got in trouble for wearing dark purple (really close to black) Mickey Mouse socks with my dress blues while in the Air Force. It was a laundry day.
  3. I’ve lost 14 pounds since the beginning of the year. The only real change I’ve made to my diet/exercise was to stop drinking pop.
  4. Given the choice between running a marathon and writing a book, I would choose marathon.
  5. My son walked himself to the potty four times in a row this morning to pee. He even got mad at me one of the times because he was walking downstairs to look for his potty and I made him go back upstairs because it was time for lunch. When he got upstairs he saw the little portable urinal, rushed over and started peeing. That’s not really about me other than the fact that I am very proud of this recent development.
  6. I had to actually think about if I am willing to pay the neighbor kid $10 to mow my lawn. Then I realized that is way less than most people are charging and decided to pre-pay for the entire summer. Go away big mean allergies.
  7. I hate how much time I spend searching for files and the corresponding response files for my job and really wish I knew more about how to maintain a golf course.
  8. I was disappointed by the final King of Queens last night. It seemed to be too much normal wrap everything up type of an episode. Why can’t they just make a really great normal episode. Who cares about loose strings and all. It’s not really a series, it’s just a bunch of individual episodes. I would prefer one really funny last episode that doesn’t end with showing me how everything ends.

Now I get to tag some others:

S. William Shaw – even though he hasn’t answered my question yet.

Tobias Buckell

Nienke Hinton

Shamus Writes


That’s all the people I can come up with on short notice that I haven’t already tagged recently. If you want to participate, let me know where your post is and I’ll add a link.

regular pop or diet pop?

Oh, and thx a bunch.

Regular. I was drinking 80+ ounces a day for a few years. Mostly Mt.Dew and Pepsi.

Oh Mike, my apologies on the lack of step four! I was distracted by yet another tag from Michelle. Please forgive me.

Golf course maintenance can’t be any more fun than reading Clay Aiken’s autobiography, let me tell you. ;)

Bonnie, I just realized that I also violated #4 complete unintentionally. Who knew that would be such a tough rule.

Nienke May 17, 2007 at 7:36 am

I’m up today. Didn’t even bother with the rules, seeing as how everyone is breaking them anyway.

We’re all a bunch of rebels.

Congratulations on your son using the potty. That’s a huge deal.

I didn’t even realize The King of Queens was ending. I liked that show.
