You get infected, and you're obligated to spread the disease to your bloggy friends. And so on, and so on.
Lady Estrogen summed it up really well when she made her STD award...
But Heather from My Husband Ate All My Ice Cream is an awesome person who manages an awesome blog, so I decided to do this 'Who Am I?' post.
I answer 25 questions about me, so you can understand your *cough* favorite blogger a little better. Here we go!
1 - Where were you born? Orange County, California. On a rainy January afternoon.
2 - Were you named after someone? Nope. I'm not a 'junior' but my nickname was 'bub' as in Bubba Smith. My mom said I was born with shoulders like a linebacker, so I was her big boy bub.
3 - How many children do you have? Two. Both boys, both live in California with their mom. I love them both, and they may end up having a little sister soon...
4 - How many pets do you have? *I* have one cat: Weeble. But there are 3 cats and a dog in my house.
5 - Your worst injury? Honestly, I've been lucky here. I was bitten by a dog when I was 8, which resulted in two stitches on my arm. I was in a car wreck once, but only walked away with bruises and soreness.
It was epic.
7 - Favorite thing to bake? I love making cookies. If you've ever had a cookie from a Doubletree Hotel, I do better.
8 - Favorite Fast Food? I'm in sales, and spend a lot of time on the road. I eat too much fast food, and I'm over it. That said, a Miguel's Jr. burrito is a must-do whenever I'm in Southern California.
9 - Would you bungee jump? FUCK. YES. ...but I'm afraid of heights, so there's that.
10 - What is the first thing you notice about people? How they carry themselves. You can tell if a person is timid or confident in a matter of seconds.
11 - When was the last time you cried? Last weekend, when I was told my dad is probably dying. I don't like him, but I still love him...
12 - Any current worries? Well, #11... and my kids. I'm 900 miles away from them, and I'm pretty sure they're being raised well, but I'm not 'actively' in their lives. Not nearly enough. I don't like being there.
13 - Name 3 drinks you drink regularly: Water, Iced Tea (unsweet, sweet tea is NASTY) and Dr. Pepper.
14 - Favorite Book? Does Penthouse count? (kidding) I really enjoyed the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. Think a cowboy Harry Potter with naughty language and sex.
15 - Would you like to be a pirate? Only if I can 'plunder the booty...'
17 - Why do you blog? The long version can be found here. The short of it is Idaho sucks and is very strange. I love to share the lunacy of this state and the surrounding areas.
(and I'm an attention whore)
18 - What song would you like played at your funeral? A slowed down version of Enter Sandman. 'Off to never never land...'
19 - Least Favorite thing about yourself? I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller, I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat and a '64 Impala...
20 - Favorite Hobby? Music, blogging, and I like football.
21 - Name something you've done that you never thought you would do? I thought I'd never leave Cali. Idaho is something I never expected. (fucking Idaho)
22 - What do you look for in a friend? Benefits.
23 - Favorite fun things to do? See #22. And I love to travel. I do that for my day job, so I'm living the dream.
24 - Pet Peeves? Spelling/grammar issues, a superiority complex (politics and religion ESPECIALLY) and cockiness.
25 - What is the last thing that made you laugh? My fiancee is getting her hair colored right now, and the girl-talk coming from the dining room is hilarious! Chatty chatty...
And now, I have to tag 8 bloggers to do this too... Time to spread the herpes!!!
...or not. I don't feel like infecting you, but if you would like to do it, feel free. I'm not gonna blog-fuck you, but you can blog-fuck me if you'd like.
