Blog Memery, Part Duh

So I got tagged by fire fox the other day, like the chubby kid at dodge ball...

*WWwwwwwhap!... Aiiiieee*


Rules are as follows;

) Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4) Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Hmmm, some random, some weird...


1) Under The Rules of Engagement in my house, I am authorized to utilize deadly force in the defense of my Mint Chocolate Chip Ice-Cream. I'm not even joking, change the tv, drink my beer, be mean to my dog (kidding, no dog), but touch the ice-cream?, you're a dead man, woman, or (Yes way!) child.

2) I have wrecked a car, crashed a bike (motor and foot-powered), been shot at, mortared, rocketed, and blown-up (IED). I have never had so much as a broken bone or major injury. Plenty of scrapes, bruises, one slightly blown ear-drum, and more than a few small scars, though. My all-time worst injury? From a high school soccer game - damn near severed my ankle's ligaments/tendons/whatever they're called. Foot was flopping around like it wasn't even attached... Would have been funny if'n it wasn't hurting so much!

3) I am a very fast reader. Regular work of fiction... a couple of hours.

4) I haven't used a credit card in over a year. I already touched on this one, a little bit. Don't like the companies, got tired of it all, don't need 'em for anything, paid the buggers off and closed them up. Good riddance.

5) I'm not terribly mechanically inclined, but I love classic cars, this one in particular.

A '57 Chevy. I love everything about this car.

6) My Great-Grandmother turned 105 years old this past November. Aside from recent events, I got some long-lived folks in my family.

7) I have a really weird sleep cycle. For a while now, if I sleep for a solid 6 hours, it's friggin'... glorious. What happens more often than not is I'll crash for about 2-3 hours a pop. Tired or rested, work that day or no, background noise or dead quiet, I'm up. Occasionally, I'll toss and turn in bed, just to see if it's possible again for me to sleep longer, but as of right now, it's a no go.



Ok, my version of the blog memery cop-out is... if you've tagged me previously, I tag you.

57 Chevys are beautiful. Gotta love all that pretty chrome. Too bad they don't build cars like that anymore.

Nice car. I once had a thing for a guy with a '58 Impala, but finally had to admit the thing was for his car, not him.

I'm with you on the mint chip ice cream defense. I buy it rarely since I don't need the calories, but when it's here, keep yer grubby paws off my treat.
