What Pre-1985 Video Game Character Are You?

Thrust me on this…

What Video Game Character Are You? I am a Thrust-ship.I am a Thrust-ship.

I am small and tricky – where you think I am, I probably am not. I can work very fast, but I tend to go about things in a round about way, which often leaves me effectively standing still. I hate rocks. Bloody rocks. What Video Game Character Are You?

Working on those Night Memes…

After three years of doing this blog thing I don’t know that there are six little known facts about me left undisclosed, but I’ll see what I can do with the meme that Jroosh tagged me with.

Six Little Known Facts About Me:
1. I hate most vegetables, especially green beans, beets and brussel sprouts. One time I was grievously deceived when I what I thought was a bowl of fried, diced potatoes was actually parsnips. I still shudder at the recollection.

2. I couldn’t wait to sign up for band in 6th grade because I really wanted to play the trumpet. Somehow or another I let the band instructor talk me into playing the tenor saxophone. Five years later I finally quit (probably about the time my parents finished paying the damn thing off).

3. As an adult I also took banjo lessons for awhile. I concluded that banjo players aren’t really as happy as they look.

4. The greatest days of my life were October 10, 1987; August 18, 1988 and February 10, 1994.

5. So far I have only discovered three games in which I have a natural aptitude: football, bumper pool and Trivial Pursuit. Now I’m too old to play football, I haven’t seen a bumper pool table in 35 years, and no one who knows me will play Trivial Pursuit with me anymore.

6. I will turn 50 on Thursday, April 3. Coincidentally, this “little known fact” also lines up with Trivia Night at Keegan’s, which I will be attending. Show up and see if an old dog has learned any new tricks.

Long Live the Meme!

Ok, so I tagged Princess FlickerFeather with this meme, and she e-mailed her response to me forever ago, and I’m just posting it now. I’m sorry! I know that you were all waiting very anxiously; but it’s okay now, here it is in her very own words! Enjoy!

7 Things people don’t know about me:
1) I couldn’t sing you a Beatles song to save my life.

2) Still a teenager and already a great-aunt

3) I’m a ninja – Seriously, I can disappear for an hour or so and not have people notice I’m gone.

4) My brother talks more than me.

5) Always wished I could be a tomboy.

6) I’ve only been to 4 concerts in my life.

7) Wanted to be married at 18… yeah, not going to happen. ^_^

Meme!!! Mwhahahahaha!!

My sister, the Mall Diva, tagged me with the ‘7 Things That May Or May Not Be True About Me’ meme. So, let’s get started:

1. I’m currently a purple belt in Tae Kwon Do.
2. I’m trying to clean my room.
3. But I don’t have a convenient place to put my weapons arsenal.
4. I have two loud birds that very rarely shut up.
5. I love sky diving.
6. I’m an undiscovered writer.
7. I like being alone so I can sing as loud as I want without anyone hearing or caring.

Now it’s up to you to deduce which of these are true, and which ones I just put down off the top of my head. Have fun!

Ciao for now!

Bwa-ha-ha-haaaa! I’m it!

I’ve been tagged by Amanda at Within the Discord (an awesome new blog, btw. I’m so happy to have another girl on board!) with this meme: 7 things that most people don’t know about me.

I think I’ll change it up a little, though: 7 things that may or may not be true that most people don’t know about me. Heehee! Have fun guessing what’s what!

1. I used to have two black kittens. Their names were Glory and Hallelujah.

2. I talk in my sleep. One incident involved me telling my mother that I needed nine thousand dollars. I was probably five.

3. This past year I got a tattoo of a scripture from the Bible. On the bottom of my right foot it says “Whither thou goest,”, and on the bottom of my left foot it says “I will go”. It’s super cool. It hurt like crazy, though.

4. I love football.

5. Clowns scare me.

6. Right now I’m taking a break from writing a script to do this meme. Betcha didn’t know that I’m a scriptwriter, did you? Come to our Christmas program!

7. I’m a musical prodigy.

Let’s see; I tag Kevi-Wevi, Princess FlickerFeather, and Tiger Lilly.

Oi! A Friday quiz…

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Friday quiz! This one is “Who’s Your Inner European?”

Your Inner European is Irish!

Sprited and boisterous!

You drink everyone under the table.

Hmmm. Irish. Must be the Gaelic roots. I don’t know about the “drinking people under the table” part, though, especially when it can be so much more interesting above the table.

Take the quiz and find out if deep down you’re really a cheese-eating surrender monkey.

HT: Away With Words.

Tag! I’m It!!! …Wait

Kingdavid has tagged me with a meme:
“Songs that I’ve made a happy fool of myself singing along to.”

This is going to be hard, because I pretty much sing along with any song I know the words to, and quite a few songs I don’t really know the words to. How long can my list be? And where do I begin?

I’ll start with a classic:

1~ “The Hampsterdance” by Hampton the Hampster
Yes, I spelled that right. This is one you really need to crank up, let loose and rock out to. Especially in public. It even instructs you on how to do the Hampsterdance! And by the time you’re done with that, this song will come in really handy:

2~ “Dancing With Myself” by Billy Idol
Oh oh ohoh!! Need I say more?

Oh oh, I know!
3~ “Believe” by Cher
I confess I’ve always liked this song, though I thought it was sung by a dude until someone told me otherwise.

And now for something completely different!
4~ “Witness” by Nicole C. Mullen
Ooooh yeeeah. I betcha didn’t know I could rap, didja?

And speaking of rapping:
5~ Every song on my Group 1 Crew cd. They are brand spankin’ new (pretty much) and absolutely kick butt. Even live! I saw them at Club 3 degrees with Princess Flickerfeather and her cousins.
Holla again!

6~ “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy” by Big and Rich
Yup, I’ve made a happy fool of myself singing along to this and the parody my sister made up. She likes to do that.

Speaking of parodies…
7~ “Oh! Gravity” by Switchfoot
This cd rocks, and both the original version and the Tiger Lilly version are fun to sing and head-bang to.

8~ “Man, I Feel Like A Woman” by Shania Twain
Of course.

9~ “Such Great Heights” by The Postal Service
One of my absolute favorite songs, along with:

10~ “Far Away” by Nickelback
So beautiful! *sniff*…

Here’s one for my dad:
11~ “Lawyers, Guns, and Money” by Warren Zevon
Ha ha!

And here’s one for my mom:
12~ “Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinead O’Connor

Here’s a fun one!
13~ “Beyond the Sea” by Bobby Darin

14~ “Flower Duet” by Charlotte Church
Almost everybody who tries to sing along with this will make a fool of themself.

15~ “Wordy Rappinghood” by Tom Tom Club
Yes…I’ve sung along to this.

Ok, just one more:
16~ “Sly” by the Cat Empire
Super fun!!!

Anyway, there’s a list for ya. It’s in no way an exhaustive list, but it’s cool.

Peace out, homeslices!

13 Predictions for When I’m Old

Uncle Ben tagged me with the “13 Predictions of When I’m Old” meme.
1. I will still be fit enough to do effective Tae Kwon Do.
2. I will have gone to Italy at least two more times.
3. I will have grandchildren.
4. I will not have a billion cats.
5. I won’t sit on the front porch all day yelling, “Whippersnappers!” (what is that anyway?)

7. I will still be 25 when I’m old.
8. I will have written 3 successful books.
9. I won’t be crochety.

You know, I’ve never really understood why ‘youth is wasted on the young’. Who else would it be wasted on? And I would like it if you would find out how many people enjoy being young before you start making assumptions that we don’t appreciate it.

Ciao for now, you young whippersnappers!
