The 17 Meme

So much has been happening, but none of it involves me getting any sort of exercise. I'm in awful shape and my knee is complaining about all these weather changes. In light of the fact that I haven't had anything to blog about and haven't had time to visit any blogs either I'm stealing a meme from Julie Maloney.

MEME!The 17 Meme

1. Do you know triplets? 
No, I don't. I know twin girls who grew up across the street from me. They are Swedish supermodels or something like that. Well, they don't model, but they are athletic and smart and good-looking. And their mom hated my guts so I always knew if I ever asked either of them out she'd go berserk and end it before it began.

2. Do you prefer Titanic or The Notebook
I don't actually know a single male person who ever read The Notebook. I haven't asked around, but I don't know if I know any guys who saw Titanic either. Those are pretty heavily entrenched in the whole "girl movie" genre.

3. Have you ever eaten Indian food? 
I don't know. I'm trying to think of what qualifies as Indian food versus everything else. I think I ate at an Indian restaurant once, so I guess probably yes, I must have.

4. What’s the name of your favorite restaurant?
There is a Mexican restaurant near my house. The food isn't that great, but they have these custom-carved booths. One of them features a Mayan priest stabbing a woman in the heart in a human sacrifice. They tried to disguise it by painting the dagger to look like a bouquet of flowers, but anyone who knows American history knows whats going on.

5. Who’s your favorite person in the world? 
I don't know. I guess whoever brings me one of those giant checks from the lottery telling me I've won a billion dollars would be high on my list.

6. Would you rather live in a rural area or in the suburbs? 
If I'm in a fun city I like being inside the city where all the fun is. But seeing as I'm not, I lot being as far away from that death alley as I can. I'm out in farm country right now. We don't even have street lights. I can see the stars at night and I really like it that way. It's really cool to be able to look up and see the Milky Way and know that it isn't pollution or clouds, but actual space gases, like a giant galactic fart in the sky. I have never seen that before moving out here.

7. Can you whistle? 
If I stand outside during a tornado and lean forward towards the direction of the winds and open my mouth my butt will whistle a merry little tune.

8. Do you sleep with a nightlight? 
No, I sleep with a pillow and blankets like a normal person.

9. Do you eat breakfast every morning? 
I eat Cheerios mixed with Honey Bunches of Oats and sometimes cut up a banana to throw in with it in milk. I eat this every morning. Every freakin' morning. And also a boiled egg with some orange juice. I'm sure somewhere out there is a dietitian or personal trainer who might read this and say "that's why you're fat and injured all the time!" I don't know. It seems OK to me.

10. Do you take any pills or medication daily?   
I take vitamins. Ever since Obamacare the federal government has been trying to get anyone and everyone who takes government money to tell us to stop taking vitamins, stop getting cancer tests, stop exercising. I don't know, maybe I'm paranoid, but it seems to me like they want us to die early so we don't cost too much money.

11. How many times have you been to the hospital as a patient? 
I played soccer. They have a wheelchair reserved for me at every hospital in the city. Orthopedic surgeons toast my name at their country clubs. A knee surgeon named his yacht after me.

12. Have you ever seen Finding Nemo
I haven't seen Nemo in awhile, but last I saw his dad found him and he was safe. Why? Is he missing again?

13. Where do you buy your jeans? 
My last several pair of Levi's tore in some of the most ridiculous of circumstances. So lately I've been going to Tractor Supply and buying Wrangler jeans. So far so good. Brett Favre seems to know what he's talking about.

14. What’s the last compliment you got? 
The more I try to think of the correct answer to this question the more I wonder if I ever even get any compliments. I can't think of any from this year.

15. Do you usually remember your dreams in the morning? 
I had some wild dreams last night. I think I enjoyed them. But I can't remember them to save my life. That's usually how it goes. They usually fade away pretty quickly after I wake up. I wonder why that is?

16. What flavor tea do you enjoy? 
Black coffee. I don't often even encounter tea.

17. What social media sites do you use?
Obviously I'm on Blogger. I have a Twitter account, but I don't log on often. I mostly use it to follow Olympic athletes and people like that who are unlikely to talk with me if I were to log in and reply to their tweets. That's about all.


  1. I feel I now know you so completely as a result of this post. Your cheesy 1980s pop choices further enhance my knowledge of you. That sexy Winter Olympics video, though, is a serious curveball. You're way too complex.

    1. MoviesOnMyMind, I found one '80s video on YouTube and somehow it led to a hundred others. I couldn't escape them. I couldn't break the cycle.

  2. You're not sure if you've eaten indian food??? Really??? You are missing out big time. Lamb Rogan Josh with extra Chili. The Bomb.

    1. AlleyCat, I think I ate at an Indian restaurant one time, but that was all. I honestly can't remember.

  3. I'll toss you a compliment - you're hilarious. I typically am the type of person to skim a post because I'm lazy in that way but I always read every word of yours.

    1. JulieMaloney, now thats the kind of compliment I like! Thank you very much!

  4. I follow my latte with copious amounts of tea crazy I know!

    1. AboutLastWeekend, I just caffeinate until my brain buzzes uselessly and then reluctantly give in to sleep.

  5. Ah... Shoes and Fanny Love have found the way to your gym too. That's wonderful. I saw Titanic back in, what, 1997.... and I've seen The Notebook too. Yep, with the Misses. So there you go. One male who knows chapter and verse.

    A Mayan priest stabbing a woman in the heart gives you an appetite? ;)

    1. Also.... try and find your show at my show today...

    2. BlueGrumpster, I can see watching them if your Mrs wants you to see it with her, but the question is would you have watched them if you were alone? The Mayan priest carving cracks me up every time I see it. I'll be right over to see what this show is about. :-)
