Blog Tagging – Fun Facts

Over the weekend, I was tagged by two great bloggers, Jess at How Did I Get Here and Asif at Life as I Know It, to share seven facts about myself. So here are some interesting tidbits about me.

Some of the poems I have written in the past scares me. It’s as if I was not the one who wrote them, but I know I did.

I believe that inanimate objects have feelings. Especially ones with faces, like stuffed animals.

I can sketch cartoon characters pretty well, almost exactly, like a tracing.

Most of my dreams are just the opposite of reality – if things are very happy in my life, my dreams are very dark.

I am much more extroverted online. It is easier for me to write to complete strangers online than it is to walk up and talk to someone I do not know in person.

The first R rated movie I saw in the theatre was Rising Sun in 1993, when I was 14.

Although the rules of this game is to tag another seven people, I realize that many of my readers’ blog themes would not allow for a post of this nature. So instead of tagging, I invite my readers to post seven fun facts about themselves in the comments. I love knowing interesting and quirky things about people!

    7 Fun Facts About Uncle Pete…

    1. I could NEVER be a Vegan – I love Morton’s Steak House too much!

    2. I have never felt more alive and more in tune with my senses than I did while I was deployed to a warzone…

    3. I have no fear of death, but I do fear not being able to protect my family in the event of a natural disaster such as an earthquake.

    4. I made a promise that if I ever win a lottery or come into a large amount of money that I would quit my job, go back to school to finish my degree and then provide volunteer medical services to those who could not afford it …

    5. I miss having a dog around the house…

    6. I have always been attracted to women with beautifully healthy hair and nails – but, the “true deal maker” is being able to kiss!

    7. I despise “bandwagoners”, bad drivers, militant or fanatical “political leftists” who are as hypocritical as any “right wing nut job” and people who are ALWAYS pessimistic! The Bandwagon folks are just weak minded sheep too afraid to stand up for what they really believe in; the bad drivers just need to be taken off the road; the “political leftists” who claim to liberal and open-minded are antything but; and pessimistic people need to live in Africa or India for a week and really see what “struggling to stay alive” is really all about.

  7. says

    Oh I would repeating mostly what I said in my latest post.

    If I’d add two more, then it’d be:

    7. I’d rather drive than take a plane

    Thanks for reading those poems. Glad you liked them.

    @Ari: I would like to know anything you feel comfortable sharing. :) Thanks for participating!

    @John: Thanks for subscribing. I designed it pretty much with a freebie font for the kikolani, and then a Paint Shop Pro Picture tube for the butterfly.

    @Kim: I lived in Tupelo for 12 years, and didn’t go to see Elvis’ birthplace until I went there to visit 10 years after I moved, so I relate to not seeing the Grand Canyon.

    @Dan: That’s interesting about the dream. I like to think my deja vu experiences are actually things that I dreamt before but don’t remember as dreams

    @Aldhis: Promising relationships are wonderful things. I have also blogged in a variety of places over the years (xanga, myspace, etc), but this is the first one I am committing myself to.

    @HVAC Repair: Actually, it is just the fact that there are times where I can’t get fully vegan meals, like at restaurants, and am not feeling like just eating a stripped down salad and baked potato, so I’ll get something that may have dairy or egg in it. But when possible, I try to stay vegan. :)

    @Steve: My dreams are usually realistic enough that I feel the resulting emotions long after awaking.

    @Uncle Pete: That is a noble thing to do if you won the lottery. If money weren’t an issue, I would do a lot of volunteer work myself. I wish you much luck! :)

    @Jaffer: I can agree with driving vs. flying. Driving time is a great time to think. Plus you are in control of your fate, for the most part. If something happens on a plane, the passengers can do little to help.

    @Madhur: I like to sing in my truck, pretending I am the next Celine Dion or Leanne Rimes. :)

    @love-ely: Having a lovely family is a wonderful thing indeed. :)

    @Irtiza: You’re welcome!

    @Debbie: Interesting about Pat Benatar. My celebrity connection was having an English class with Lance Bass in high school.

    @Claire: I used to be obsessed with one particular version of mah jongg. It was a freebie online game on the Oxygen network website. I never found another version that I liked as much since. And thanks for sending your writing. I enjoyed reading!

    4. I was able to fulfill one of my biggest dreams to sing along with a rock band live on stage, when at a company party I performed 3 songs in front of 200+ people, with guitar, bass & synthesizers!
    5. I am a bachelor at 32 and feel resigned to the fact that I may live out my entire life that way.
    6. I miss my dog of 11 years and I pretty often dream that she is still alive and with me.
