Eight things you may or may not know about me

Becca chooses me to do a meme. I can deny women who show me pictures of girls in Catholic school-type skirts holding lightsabers nothing.


1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. (You’re not the boss of me!)
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.


Ok.

1. If memory serves, the first woman that I ever saw completely nude in Playboy was Carol Ficatier. For better or worse, every woman that I've ever known since has probably been contrasted to her-and, of course, Sylvia Kristel, the first woman I saw naked onscreen.





2. Sometime in the mid-to-late '70s, I found $20 in a Burger King parking lot. I blew it on...a Kiss action figure. No, I can't explain it either (I never even liked the music!).

3. Some cereals I miss in (roughly) alphabetical order:



(Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs just aren't the same as E.T. Cereal)

(although we still have Cap'n Crunch, which is the same as Gremlins)

Pac-Man:



4. I have never known, or even met, my father. However, reasonably belivable information suggests that he is currently working as a psychic healer of some kind. This leads me to believe that he is either a con man, a nut, or both. Either way, I don't like my chances if heredity is anything to shout about.

5. I once dreamt I was in bed with Amber Benson. It wasn't all sexy, but snuggly and warm and friendly. Which doesn't really surprise me because as much as I loved Tara, it's never really been as much about the heat so much as the warmth.



6. I have never seen any of the Shrek movies in their entirety, though I have seen bits of the first on TV. They just look horrible to me.

7. I've met all but one of the Kids in the Hall.

8. I wrote a comic strip that a friend drew for our high-school newspaper.

Whew! Ok, for my tags: Jen, RAB, George, spyder, Steve, Mike, Johnny, Dave Lifton

Awww, man...

I can come up with 8 things about me--no problem--but 8 people to tag? Jeez, I had trouble with five last time! And three of them still didn't do it.

Do what I do-just tag the last eight people to comment to your blog (that have blogs of their own) and forget about it.

Wow I used to have that issue of Playboy, it was a hand me down from a friends mom...she used to work for Playboy and apparently they do free subscriptions for employees. Around 92 I ended up with a couple of boxes of them and that issue was one. I always remember her cause she had short hair. And Sylvia Kristel is just lovely.

And wow I used to eat a bunch of that cereal I even had one of those Batman banks until a couple of years ago.

And which Kid have you not met yet? I'm so curious!

jeopardygirl said...

um, only six people have actually commented on my blog.

Oh, and I remember all those cereals except the Deep Sea Cap'n Crunch

George said...

Yikes, I got tagged. Last time I comment here...

Eight is a lot to tag. You see, most of the 8 who comment on my blog with blogs all know each other, so if I tag them, they're screwed when it's their turn. Since one of them is my wife, it really does matter. Not a good thing to get her upset at me.

George said...

You win. Mine is up.

Ben Varkentine said...

I didn't make the rules. Sheesh, such kvetching...

spyderkl said...

Okay! I didn't find it until this morning, but I'll do that later. Not sure about the 8 people to tag, though...

Johnny B said...

I'll do this one ASAP, or as soon as I can think of eight interesting things about me.

I miss Freakies cereal too. I used to have a T-shirt...

RAB said...

I finally thought of an eighth thing about me. And the other seven seemed so easy...

Johnny B said...

Better late than never.
