Because I Have Nothing Else to Blog About at the Moment

What's on my mind right now? Moles, those'r what.


No, not those kind. The furry kind.


Wait, that's not any better. Okay, not the kind that grow on your skin. I'm talking the kind that get under your skin.


Gross. I meant metaphorically.

Not cute at all.
Anyway, I'd blog about them - I even have a moderately profound life lesson thing related to the reprehensible rodents - but the mere mention gets my whatever-the-heck-dander-is up, so I will refrain.

Oh. This is dander. The metaphor still makes no sense.

Instead, please enjoy this light-hearted list/survey/whatever you call these things.

36 Odd Questions

1. Do you like bleu cheese? I do to some degree. Too much and I want to yark.

2. Have you ever smoked? Only the competition at Mario Kart.


Crude, but more or less what others see when I'm playing

3. Do you own a gun? I have a .22-caliber rifle that originally belonged to my grandfather. It's really old but fairly accurate.

4. What flavor Kool-Aid was your favorite? I'm not sure about this "was" business - I still like Kool-Aid. But my favorite flavor has never been constant. As a kid I like blue because it was different, and orange because Aldi's knockoff never included that flavor. Nowadays, though, I'd say cherry or grape.


I'm not even sure what this is supposed to mean; thank Google Images for finding it for me
5. Do you get nervous before doctor's appointments? Nope. Unless one of my limbs has blackened and shriveled. But even then, I know it's not good, so no worries.

6. Favorite Christmas movie? Scrooge. No question. Honorable mention: The Lemon-Drop Kid

7. What do you think of hot dogs? I think they are usually edible, but never to be chosen over hamburgers.


This is really dumb. And really cute. But mostly dumb. And adorable.
8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning? My mornings - diet Sun Drop or diet Cherry Coke. Normal mornings - milk

9. Can you do push-ups? I can, I prefer not to


Honestly, who smiles while doing push-ups?
10. What's your favorite piece of jewelry? Necklace I got for my wife while we were dating. It's the only jewelry I got for her without any outside (read: wife's) consultation.

11. Favorite hobby? Does eating count?

12. Do you have A.D.D.? Awfully personal, blog survey writer, don't you think? But I probably have it to a mild degree.

13. 3 thoughts at this exact moment: 1) Stupid question that isn't even a question 2) Moles are dumb 3) Still talking about the animal ones, not the skin ones.



14. Do you wear glasses or contacts? Yes

15. Middle name? Trouble. No, Ready. No, Awesome. Wait.....okay, Awesome.

16. Current worry? Besides moles? Future.

17. Current hate right now: Okay, who comes up with these? Um, anything by Rihanna, celebreality stars, tomatoes, ani-moles (see what I did there?), our lawn, the Houston Astros, terrorists, the fact that I still have to wait for "The Dark Knight Rises", George Lucas, I could go on


I'd pay a heavy bounty for this to happen

18. Favorite place to be: Germany. With my wife.

19. How did you bring in the New Year? Um, it's September. And isn't it "ring in the New Year?"

20. Where would you like to go? Isn't that double-dipping on question 18? But I'd add Russia, Italy England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, a lot of places


Yes, I will visit here someday, thank you

21. Name three people who will complete this: I'd like to see Beckie, Tamara and Juli do this.

22. Do you own slippers? Too personal. But yes, I do.

23. What shirt are you wearing? It has buttons. Someone at work thought it was "dapper." I guess because I usually wear polos.

24. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets? Who's asking these, Oprah? No, I never have and I never plan to. Just....weird. Weirder would be satin sheets on a water bed.


These don't even LOOK comfortable.

25. Can you whistle? And how. I can whistle the normal way AND through my teeth. Tamara hates/loves it

26. Favorite color? Green. Like grass, thumbs and lanterns


Get it? Because he has a lantern. And it's green.

27. Would you be a pirate? Yes, and I would rob and plunder from whoever came up with these questions

28. What songs do you sing in the shower? I don't

29. Favorite girl's name? Whichever one my wife likes

30. Favorite boy's name? Not Steven


Would you like your own name if THIS ^ was the first thing to show up on an image search? Me neither.

31. What's in your pocket right now? The One Ring. And lint. Mostly lint.

32. Last thing that made you laugh? Whatever was most recently funny.

33. What vehicle do you drive? A dying one

34. Worst injury you've ever had? Gouges. Horrifying, those.

35. Do you love where I live? Yes already. Only without moles.


Why, evolution? Why have you not purged these abominations from existence?

36. How many TV's do you have in your house? Weird, I would have pegged the "who will complete this" as a last question. 3.

Your answers (and many of the images) made me chuckle. A lot.

Of course, I do wonder, if you don't like so many of the questions, why do it anyway?

(Oh, right. You had nothing better to blog about than your complaints about the 36 "odd" questions. Granted, I do agree with your complaint that #13 (and #18, #21) aren't actual questions- it isn't THAT hard to rephrase it into the form of a question...)

Fun times.

(And I kind-of like that the first image that pops with a Google image search of my name is a snazzy sports car!)

I had many favorite moments in this blog post, but I think mom trumped them all with her "little hot doggie" comment.

Can that last photo really be a MOLE???? FREAKY!!!!!!

and I SO remember those gouges. Mom was a bit too cavalier about those. They honestly needed stitches.

Yikes.

And thanks for all the laughs!
