What kind of fuckery is this?

Bullshit. That's what this is. Nothing but straight-up bullshit. So go screw, Onthevirg and Country Roads. Fucking tagging is for dorks. Not to mention that there's very little you vultures don't know at this point because a) I'm not that interesting and b) I pretty much blurt out everything about myself on this damn site.

Anyway, the retard-o rules:

A). Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog...

B). Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself...

C). Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs...

D). Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

Here you go:

1. I'm terrified of fire. Specifically, of my house burning down. I can barely sleep if I go to bed after using the fireplace, lit candles worry me, that sort of thing. And don't get me started on space heaters.

2. When I was six years old I insisted that my clothes match completely. As in, blue shirt, blue pants, blue socks, blue shoes. I was compulsive about it. Now I'm lucky if I remember to wear pants in the first place.

3. I never learned how to drive a stick shift.

4. I can crack virtually every joint in my body, and do it frequently. Knuckles, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees, back, neck, you name it. If it bends, I can make it pop. This disturbs some people.

5. Not counting English, I have studied four other languages. I cannot speak, read or write any of them even remotely competently.

6. When I was in high school, I shaved half of my head, dyed my hair purple, had my ears pierced, wore motorcycle jackets and combat boots and skull rings, because I wanted to be totally punk rock. Now I shop at Old Navy and complain when the kids on the street yell too much.

7. The first concert I ever went to was Kool and the Gang.

As for tagging other people - I'm too fucking lazy. So if you read this, I'm suggesting A Lover and a Fighter, New Texan, Girl With Curious Hair, Maxine Motherfucking Dangerous, Alex the Odd, and now I'm too tired to think of anyone else. So if you punks read this, write some shit down, OK?

I don't know whether I should be excited to be in the Cool Kids Gang, or try to cyber punch you.

Maxine Dangerous said...

I'm one of the cool kids! I'm one of the cool kids! And I am SO punctuating everything I say with "motherfucking" now. Not that I, uh, didn't already, uh, do that. 0;)

country roads said...

wow, I can feel your love through the screen.

Kool and The Gang? *snort*

I'm guessing that was before the punk rock era.

In your defense though, I can't stand loud kids on the street either. The little delinquent bastards.

Boo said...

seriously? dammit TK. i must accept the fact that not only could we be twins, but that if I ever met you i would have fallen MADLY in love with you. (Except for the not driving stick thing, but that's ok, i got it covered). I mean, the whole half head shaved and purple dyed and now yelling at kids thing? Be still my heart!

Redhead said...

You're the person who can and will crack every bone in their body? Wow, just...wow. Do you realize that you just told me YOU are the type of person that I end up next to on the train all the time and want to murder within 2 minutes? You are the person who if I met you would make me slowly lose my mind? Dude, I'm so disappointed.

Boo said...

What a polarizing post, TK.

GiveEmHellHarry said...

Does your sternum crack also? I was stretching the other day and mine fucking popped. It was a weird endorphin/pain combo.

PS: Kool and the Gang is way better than my first concert; Weird Al.

Manda said...

The husband cracks his sternum, and it's fucking disgusting.

My first concert (outside of uterus) was Genesis.

My first concert (in untero)was Frank Zappa.

At least in our old age, we sport hairstyles and fashions that require less maintenance and upkeep. I can only imagine trying to keep a half-shaved head smooth and free of stubble.

I wanna play. But I never blog anymore, so no one asks me.

*sigh*

Tex - Excited to be cool. That's what I'd go with.

Max - You always were.

CR - You mock Kool and the Gang and I will kill you, you hear me?!

Boo - But for a simple twist of fate... it was not to be.

Red - *pop* *crack*

Boo - Polarizing is my middle name.

Harry - My sternum? No. You might want to see a doctor 'bout that.

Manda - Technically, my first concert was Bob Marley, but I was 2 and don't remember it.

LS - aww, poor neglected Salty.

Anonymous - congratulations. for that inane, and somewhat offensive comment, you get to be the first comment to be deleted.

Ooh! Ooh! I'm inane! Remove my comment too!! PLEEEEEEASE!!!

P.S. Nothing says "I don't go on man-dates" more than purple hair and Kool and the Gang.

P.P.S. I'm flattered -- but I've already got a ladyboy on retainer out here in Bangkok.
