8 Things About Stupid

We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.

  • Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

  • People who are tagged write their own blog post about their eight things and include these rules.

  • At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and they should read your blog.

Well, I have to pound out another 8 facts about Stupid to comply with this meme from Shash

I thought I would try this in a categorical format, just to try and mix it up a little. I mean I don't want to write just about the kind of sneakers I wear (New Balance). So here goes.

  1. Politically Speaking I am registered as an Independent. And that's boring, so 'nuff said.

  2. Musically My musical taste borders on the bizarre, at least in its variety. I listen to classic Rock, One Hit Wonders, and I have to admit, I'm not too quick to turn off the stuff my kids listen to.

  3. Aesthetically I have no clearly defined "Perfect Woman". Short, tall, thin, curvy, blonde, definite quality locks it in. But intelligence is mandatory. Not so much possessing a set amount, but a willingness to express what's going on in the mind. That's not a lie, or a politically-correct statement, it's a fact. I'm not PC about hotness, and to prove it, let me add that a nice pair of boots adds 100ยบ to a woman's hotness.

  4. Pop-Culturally My biggest celebrity crush ever was Meredith Salenger. My favorite TV show at the moment is "Still Standing", a comedy in syndication and currently only available on Lifetime TV. I currently have no favorite song. My favorite movies are: "Apollo 13", "Cinderella Man", "I, Robot (Will Smith Version)", and "Wedding Crashers". At least this week.

  5. Religiously My religion is best kept to myself. I let it guide my life. If I wanted it to guide yours, I'd have become a Priest. I've read the Bible twice, but I don't have it memorized. I'm faithful, I believe in God, and I try to let religion be a major moral guidance. Notice I said "I". There's no "i" in team, but there are two in religion. You have your beliefs, I'll have mine, ok?

  6. Educationally I have a Bachelor's Degree. I was the first one in my family to have accomplished that feat, and I'm a little proud of that. I encourage my kids to soak up every minute of their educations. I'm a major computer geek, an appetite I've developed later in life, but one that I have a passion about, which is funny, since my degree had nothing to do with Computer Science.

  7. Socially I don't date at the moment, a decision partly based on the fact that I am a single dad with 3 kids, and partly on the fact that my body is pretty busted up right now, and pain is a boring topic. I'm also studying for a major licensing exam, and aside from some blog time, that's consuming me right now. I love my friends. My friends let me tell them I love them. They know I do, and they deal with it. I hug. Not uncomfortably, mind you, hugs are for my loved ones and friends, so if I run into you on the street and we're not good friends yet, I'll wait for a signal!

  8. Fault-ly (is that even a word?) I could name 100,000 faults about me. a. I talk too much, and I write too much; I never know when to shut up. b. I'm a "fixer" who always tries to solve people's problems. I mean I just never feel content to say, "yeah that sucks" and leave it at that. But sometimes people don't want you to fix, they just want you to listen...I try. c. I am way too slow to forgive. It takes me forever to get angry at someone, but then it takes forever to let it go once I do. That's not good, but I am working on it. d. Did I mention I talk too much?

I think I need to appoint a Blog Supervisor for my work here. I need someone I can pay 10 cents a word to. That will shorten these entries in a hurry. Any volunteers?

OK, for the next 9 hours I have to study. Great way to spend a Sunday. So don't let me read or write any more till I'm done!

I'll get back to you with my Tag Victims. I have to choose carefully...


  1. I swear to god I think I wrote some of those myself lol Very interesting, I liked reading that.

    Sorry I haven't been by in a while, bloglines decided to screw with my subscriptions. I had to er, re-subscribe(?) to everyone lol


  2. Call me crazy, but I'm getting the distinct impression that you like boots on a woman... JUST GUESSING! ;)

    I think its great that you're a hugger. I love being hugged, even though I am far too shy to ever initiate one. That's why its important we have hug-initiators like you on the planet. :)

    So if the super gets .10 a word how much does the owner???? Cass

  4. I don't date either, but I don't have kids. So what's my excuse? Oh, maybe it's lack of decent men here. ;-)

    Computer skills are always needed. I wish I had more....but I guess all I need to do is bat my eyelashes and get some boy to help.

    What kind of licensing are you studying for?

  5. aw, you know we all love your broken old body ;-)

  6. LOL @ Holly...Oh Holly it goes wayyyyyy back, yes Jimmy?

    I'd volunteer but as one can tell my posts aren't of the short and sweet nature either ;)

    aka BamaWmn46

  8. Kristen- It's a Securities Industry (NASD) exam that I hope will propel me away from trading to a much more boring aspect of the industry. Me old.

    LOL, my reputation as a boot guy precedes me.

  9. Kell, as nice as you are to me, I still get the distinct feeling that when I run into you someday, I'm still gonna get smacked. know the drill. What's mine is yours. All of it :)

  10. I relate mostly to numbers 2 and 3.
    Great honesty in your answers...seems like a challenging meme, I'd say.
