Some Kind Of Meme

Once again, I have been too damn slow to dodge yet another bullet. This one fired at me from Bloodspite. I thought that he liked me, but I must have pissed him off or something, because he took great delight in tagging me. Anyway, without further ado, here is "The Meme With No Name." (Crap, I just realized I ruined that.)

What I was doing ten years ago:
I had been out of the Corps for a year, and was back to working for the now defunct Beloit Corporation. Building paper making machinery, and travelling to paper mills nationwide for repairs and new installs. I was also eating and drinking, but I hadn't done anything with Mary.

...5 years ago:
Beloit went bankrupt and closed... got new job a current employer. Personally, this was a rough time. Times were incredibly tight, but I was making do. Moved later in the year when I got tired of hearing "odd couplings" through paper thin walls. Something about hearing two dudes going at it makes me feel nauseous.

...1 year ago:
This time last year? I spent 4 weeks in LeRoy Illinois setting up Nokia GSM cell sites for AT&T. Oops... my bad. That was what Bloodspite was doing. I was about to take my vacation to Colorado and Utah. On the bike. What a great trip....

Rode up to my brother's place, and visited with him for quite awhile while watching my nephew playing/fidgeting/whining/playing/throwing tantrums/playing/grinning like an idiot. Part of the inspiration for this post.

Rode around enough to get a touch of sunburn, then went to Tammi's for dinner. Nice visit around watching movies.

5 snacks I enjoy:
1. Beer
2. Dark Chocolate
3. Beer and dark chocolate
4. Beer
5. Beer

5 songs I know all the words to:
I don't think this is fair... I'm a music guy, not a lyric guy.
1. Happy Birthday
2. Happy Birthday (Industrial Mix)
3. Happy Birthday (featuring T1G mix)
4. Happy Birthday (Country Mix, featuring Snoop Dogg)
5. Happy Birthday (mental strain mix)

5 Things I would do with $100 million:
1. Point and laugh at all of you.
2. Buy up a large tract of land, and build a castle.
3. Rebuild the castle after it sank into the swamp.
4. Rebuild the castle after it burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp.
5. Probably throw a small party to celebrate the new castle. You would all be invited. But only if I won. And kept my word.

5 locations I would like to runaway to:
1. Montana
2. The Yorkshire Moors

3. Swearin' too f#%*in' much

5 things I like doing:

1. Listening to music
2. Reading
3. Playing my guitar
4. Getting on someone's last nerve.
5. Being outside... hunting, hiking, whatever.

5 things I would never wear:
1. A beer helmet.
2. Underwear on my head
3. Rubber pants on my head.
4. A thong.
5. A Packers jersey.

Okay, okay, so there' s two I haven't worn. But I guarantee that I won't wear them... unless they're on my head.

5 TV shows I like:
Don't watch much TV, but these are the choices if I do.
1: Loony Tunes cartoons
2. History Channel
3. Discovery Channel
4. Anything to do with horror, or haunting
5. Whatever show may currently feature Jennifer Anniston.

5 Biggest joys of the moment:
1. Jamming on the newest Ministry album.
2. Enjoying the dry air, courtesy of two overworked window airconditioners, and one nearly dead fan.
3. Content in knowing that I have nothing that has to be done today... right now... or else.
4. Just got back from visiting with my cousins.
5. Uh...

5 Favorite toys:
If you insist...
1. Etch-a-sketch
2. Keys

Rubber pants on your head? I should say not, but for one of my sons that was one of his favorite pass times. He had been toilet trained for nearly a whole year when one day, he decided that rubber pants for babies looked great on his head. There he would be, peddling his little old tricycle around the house with a pair of rubber pants pulled on over his head. He looked like a space martian!
