Happy Sunday Morning

I just got tagged by Eve at

She writes one of the funniest blogs around. This Southern belle, who thinks she may have been one of my ex-wives (it's possible as I have a lot of fuzzy memories of late nights at Denny's) wants me to list 7 things about me that youse don't already know.

Hmmm. That's pretty tough since I'm kind of an open book, but here goes. I know it's sad, but these are all true

1. I lost the county spelling bee when I was in 8th grade because of a technicality. I retraced without asking. The word was effident. I still don't know what it means, but I sure as heck can spell it without retracing now.

2. While I advocate for the elimination of our drug policy, I have never used illegal drugs.

3. The last time I voted for a Presidential candidate from a major party was 1980. I usually vote Libertarian, or write in the name of a friend of mine.

4. The coolest person I ever met was Jean Shepherd. He autographed my book, "Excelsior, Dad" but I lost the book in a move a few years ago.

5. I used to teach a sex ed and drug class in an alternative school setting. Many of my "students" were parents and drug dealers.Photobucket

6. Due to skin grafts, I now have hair growing in places it shouldn't be growing.

7. According to geneolgy tracing my cousin did, my family comes from a regal line. Unfortunately, they were disgraced and run out of the country.

Now, I'm supposed to annoy tag (7, 70, 700, 7000?) a bunch of others, but I don't do that simply because I'm such a lame ass maverick. Anyone who wishes to participate is welcome to, just let me know, so I am sure to read it and laugh at your expense with you.

You'll laugh at least 7 times at:

So let's get this straight: your a hairy non drug takin' drug educator, waste your voter (teehee)who can spell better than I can.

@ Lauren: Yes. But I just say no to drugs. Though I do love my percosets and such, I only take it when prescribed. I'm so boring.

@ Etta: I do love my grilled soy cheese on whole grain bread.

@ Eve: Not even once. And I lived in a college dorm in the 70's!!!

I misspelled missle when I was in the 8th grade. It was Christmas time and I was thinking of mistle toe and a certain other 8th grade boy. I was favored to win the spelling bee that year at 20-1; I'm still bitter about it.

Da Old Man said...

@ MA: I'm still mad at the spelling bee commitee, too. :)
