I’ve been tagged by Dean Wormer

Old Dean got me see here

List 7 random things about yourself that people may not know.

Link the person who sent this to you, and leave a comment on their blog so that their readers can visit yours.

Post the rules on your blog.

1. I’ve been to Disneyland three times.

2. I hate Gambit… a lot! I dropped the X-men, and even comics for a long time after he showed up. He symbolizes everything that was wrong with ‘90s comics IMO. Plus, all the great stories from the 80’s that were adapted by the first X-Men cartoon series didn’t have Nightcrawler or Colossus; No, instead we got that stupid Gambit guy. That bugged me to no end; the Dark Phoenix saga with Gambit? Yuck! He didn’t show up in the first three X-Men movies so that was way cool although he is in the new Wolverine film.

3. Some high school chums and I buried a time capsule. I can’t remember what we put in it beyond a war comic that I didn’t want. It was a metal case about the size of small toolbox and it was wrapped in a plastic bag. I’m sure it’s long since been ruined by now.

4. My Favorite Looney Tunes character is Daffy Duck.

5. I’ve been to the site of the Dachau concentration camp while on a backpacking trip through Germany years ago, horrific but necessary in my opinion..

6. My favorite episode of Star Trek TOS is The Return of the Archons. It used to be Mirror, Mirror for a long time until after I became an adult and learned a little bit about how computers worked. I also love what it has to say about religion, and technology. “Festival Festival!” It’s totally cheesy and very deep at the same time.

7. I ate pig brains once…

I’m going to tag Heidi Meely (who never does my tags but that’s OK), and ah… anybody else that wants to do it I guess…

Hey! There were somethings even I didn't know...

I'll have to think about the Star Trek one though..

for pure Comedic Effect:

The Trouble with Tribbles or Mudd's Women

For pure Craziness:

Shore Leave & The Squire of Gothos

For Worst Costumes EVAR:

Friday's Child (all Hail Julie Newmar!)

For ones that made me THINK:

The Empath & Let That Be Your Last Battlefield

amd Spock's Brain because it's the gift that keep on giving...

pain and delight...

Becca said...

Pig brains! Yuck!!! I'm impressed you had enough courage to try them though.

And not that you care...but I think my favorite TOS must be The Squire of Gothos or Shore Leave. It's nice to see Bones get some lovin.

Eaglewing said...

I can't believe the pig brains either. Ugh. Let me guess though - taste like chicken?

Pandabonium said...

Pig Brains? I hope there is no such thing as PSE!

Arkonbey said...

You realize that everyone is going to ask about pig brains, right?

The real question is: would you eat them again? On purpose?

and the only thing worse for the X-Men than Gambit, was Jubilee...

Dean Wormer said...

Time Capsule - It's be cool to find that time capsule today.

Daffy Duck -I have a theory that we identify with the looney tunes character closest to our own personality so Daffy is perfect for you.

TOS- Those are good episodes of TOS. I love that show so much I have trouble thinking of a bad episode.

pig brains - are you Indiana Jones?

Swinebread said...

Becca – Well It didn’t look very appetizing, but I went along with the group.

Bones getting some is very important I agree.

Eaglewing – not much taste to it, kinda’ like meat jello.

Panda – me to I ate when I was youn and stupid

Arkonbey – No, I would never eat them again, unless I was starving to death.

I find Jubilee less annoying and I think it’s because she’s a girl. If gambit was a chick I would find “her” less annoying I think.

Dean – so what Looney Tunes character do you like?

Of course what does good mean, certainly Spock’s Brain is bad but it’s one of the most entertaining shows.

Yosemite Sam.

Heidi Meeley said...

You tagged me and I am here to tell you I actually did a post! I can't top you, my friend! It was fun though!

Thank you!

Swinebread said...

heidi - Thanks for doing it!
