I've been tagged

Curse you Karnov. Curse your green, scaly hide!

10 years ago I was:

  • 24
  • A junior in college
  • In the Army Reserves
  • Drinking an unhealthy amount of alcohol and playing Madden Football and Desert Strike on Sega.

5 years ago I was:

  • Working as a computer/copier/satellite equipment field technician in a company that really dogged it's employees.
  • Playing Heroes of Might and Magic, Warcraft, Starcraft and Madden Football
  • Not dating anyone seriously
  • Drinking a little-less-unhealthy-than-college amount of alcohol and hashing.

1 year ago I was:

  • Preparing for our 3 year anniversary with my wife and our honeymoon in Las Vegas.
  • Working as a computer technician at a much better company
  • Living in a condo with my wife and daughter
  • Drinking just a bit on the weekends and hashing.

Yesterday I was:

  • Pulling a tree out of the ground that was against our house
  • Trying to get the new computer that I built to see its hard drive (it still doesn't)
  • Taking my daughter to Toys R Us for a Barbie, then her and Scotch to church for the pet blessing.
  • Eating S'mores at the neighbors and having a beer.

5 snacks I enjoy the most:

  • Those smiley face cookies
  • Butterfingers
  • carrots (occasionally, if I get on a health kick)
  • Beer
  • Diet Mountain Dew (does that count as a snack?)

5 songs I know all the words to:

  • Rock and Roll High School by The Ramones, for some reason that seemed kind of like my senior year in high school
  • So Alive, Love and Rockets
  • I Like Short Songs, by The Dead Kennedy's
  • Take Me Out To The Ballgame (in a Harry Carray voice)
  • The Spiderman themesong

5 ideal places for running away to (is this places I have ran away to, or places that I'd like to run away to?):

  • Las Vegas
  • Mexico
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Europe
  • Boston, MA

5 items you will never see me wear:

I cannot answer this, whatever I say, I know someone would be able to come out with a picture of me in it. The only thing I can say is that really ugly shirt that my wife made me throw out.

5 biggest joys in my life

  • My wife
  • My daughter
  • My dog
  • The fact that I am working in a job that I like
  • My house

3 favorite toys:

  • My computer (if I actually get it working), my wife's computer
  • DVD Player
  • Does hashing count as a toy?

5 tags:

Oh man, I'm just going to tag Jo Jo the Monkeyboy. That way, he won't be bugging me when he is filling this thing out. Can I tag him 5 times?

No? Then I shall also tag Captain Typo, Captain Picard, Captain Starbucker and Captain Superhero Bob.

You honestly couldn't find five people to tag? Sad.

You wanna be tagged? I figure that if I tag Jo Jo 5 times, he wouldn't bother me so much!

sorry, the legal doctrine of stare decisis dictates that I not play any tag game, lest I feel compelled to play ALL tag games.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

Let me see that, Fluke. Hmmm, everything appears to be in order here. You even have the Writ of Haveabus Corpuscle signed and everything OK, if you would just sign here and here. Thankyou. Initial here, place an X here, Y here. Because. Sign here one more time, thank you, your toaster should arrive within 3 to 4 weeks.

November, why not?

Captain Typho said...

I'll work the tag into my next post.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Jean-Luc Picard said...
