Six Random Things About Me

Dean Wormer tagged me with a the "Six Random Things About Me" meme. see here

The Rules

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Six random things about me-

1) I have driven on the autobahn... it's not as fun as you might think... but there were some great views

2) While I was reading Mel Blanc's autobiography, That's Not All Folks, he died. I was kinda freaked out about reading autobiographies for awhile...

3) I have two vague memories of being in a baby crib... ...(when I was a baby, sheesh)

4) I rule at connect four.

5) I was never able to watch CBS when I was a kid because of bad reception so I missed that whole Dukes of Hazzard thing...

6) Thundarr has to be my all-time favorite Saturday Morning cartoon. Demon Dogs!

I know I'm supposed to tag six folks but I haven't been very good about commening on other folks blogs so I feel kinda weird about demanding a tag from anybody.

Broke the rules.... oh well.

Thanks for playing!

Re: the reading the autobiography killing the author- could you read Rush Limbaugh's autobiography please?

Re: the Dukes of Hazzard thing- the whole point wasn't the show itself it was Daisy Duke in cutoff shorts + boys entering puberty.

Re: Thundarr - liked that one but I was a Scooby Doo guy myself. Must of been our age difference.

Mel Blanc died while you were reading his autobiography? That's almost as bad as my reading the Necronomicon, ignoring its warning that ill would befall the family or friends of the reader if he wasn't properly initiated, and then finding out that night that my sister had died in a freak car accident.

(Yes, I know...the "Necronomicon" floating around out there has the word "fiction" plainly visible on its spine, but still...)

Did you fantasize about Ariel? I know a number of people that did.

You didn't tag me, but it sounded fun, so I did it anyway.

Also, I haven't played connect four in YEARS. I don't think I was ever great at it, but it was enjoyable enough to get me through many an indoor recess during grade school . . .

You killed Mel Blanc! Bastard ;)


Thundarr ruled my young world. I went to watch some episodes on YouTube recently and they... ruled not so hard. The art and effects that were amazing in the 80's were actually clunky.

The backgrounds of destroyed cities were really still nice, though.
