Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Me (But Never Cared Enough to Ask)

One of the perils of returning to Blogfrica is getting tagged with the latest meme the cool kids are huffing. Mike's just smacked me with this one, so here goes:

1) Ten years ago, I was...

Getting ready to move to Atlanta -- "Hotlanta," "Gritsville," "The City Too Humid to Hate," "Where Peachtree Meets Peachtree," etc. -- and observe local residents Studiodave and I-Rod up close and personal. I, and my liver, would never ever be the same.

2) Five things on today's to-do list:

*Spend the day with the girl
*Scream at cable anchors during MSNBC's primary day coverage
*More Coffee
*Go see Flight of the Conchords at Town Hall

3) Things I'd do if I were a billionaire:

*Purchase Faux News and turn it over to a liberal populist like Thomas Frank.
*Give enough cash to Hillary Clinton to just give it up already.
*Hunt the world's most dangerous beast -- man.
*Mars, bitches! M-A-R-S!

4) Three bad habits:

*Too much coffee
*Not enough sleep
*Inability to see cause and effect

5) Five places I've lived:

*New York
*The Land of Chocolate
*A Land Down Under

6) Six jobs I've had in my life:

*Horse Whisperer
*Ghost Whisperer

Alright, that's half serious and all boring. I'm supposed to pass this thing on -- like a flu virus, I suppose -- so I'm going to cough all over the other folks here. Give us some details, boys.

I think I've already exceeded my daily video clip quota, so I humbly present you boys with the following:

Abe Simpson as Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Post it in good health.

Studiodave said...

1) Ten years ago, I was...

* Explaining to my wife why drinking until 4 AM was acceptable behavior for a college graduate.

* Arguing with Graphix Corp that my "octopus" waterpipe was my idea.

* Forgetting if I ate dessert or not. Having another - just to be safe (repeat until sleep)

* Playing Mortal Combat in the basement and being amazed at the trick moves.

2) Five things on today's to-do list:

* Measure (Porky's joke)
* Drive to work listening to new REM album.
* 3 hour planning meeting to discuss future planning meetings.
* Responded to dare from my wife to swing on the swing set with all the kids at once.
* Reviewed porn as wife watched "Dancing with the Stars"

3) Things I'd do if I were a billionaire:

* Establish T-Pac like posse with blog friends. Less violence. More focused on competitive laziness.

* Run for governor. Blog posse will ensure win through implied old school violence.

* Buy the Braves - make Ted Turner seem tame with my rants and spending.

4) Three bad habits:

* Is porn a habit? I think its more a lifestyle.

* Burping out load.

* Bad movies entertain me.

5) Five places I've lived:

* New York
* Atlanta
* Nashville
* Charlotte NC
* Washington DC

6) Six jobs I've had in my life:

* Ham Glazer (true)
* Lobbyist (Ryan White Act)
* Lover (I give 110%)
* Bartender
* Perpetual wing man for I Rod
* Motorcycle enthusiast.
