Jay + Gay = Me tagged me, and since I'm in a good mood, I'm obliged to play along and reveal 8 things about myself that you may not have known (except the Roomie - she knows far too much about me).

1. I'm a huge airplane nerd/dork/geek. It's far to easy for me to waste hours of my life looking at pictures on My apartment is under a landing path for O'Hare and the Roomie will point out descending aircraft and I can almost always state the type of aircraft and what airline it is.

2. One of the best times I've ever had was spent running around Las Vegas on a head full of LSD. I distinctly remember laughing hysterically on the "inclinators" at the Luxor Hotel (the one shaped like a pyramid). Oh, and my friend lit his hair on fire. Good times.

3. During the my last 2 years of high school I was really into punk rock...which was strange because most of my friends were dirty hippi's, (see above) and some of them still are (but I love 'em just the same).

4. I'm not a fan of Paris (the city - although the I'm not a fan of the other one either). I remember it being very dirty and full of rude assholes. And I got mugged on Avenue Montaigne (that's like getting mugged on Michigan Avenue - WTF?). And did they really have to use mace?

5. My buddy MarK and I once finished a bottle of Jack Daniel's in one hour flat. I don't remember much of what took place afterward, but I guarantee that something hilarious ensued.

6. Not sure if I put this in another list or not - but I really, really, really want to go to Skip Barber Racing School. They have a 3 day class taking place over Labor Day weekend in Wisconsin (that also happens to be someones birthday weekend - hint, hint).

7. Every morning I read the business section in the NY Times. Not sure where this inclination originated but business news has always fascinated me. Perhaps I should get an MBA...naw, fuck that.

8. Shoes! The Roomie constantly pokes fun at me about my burgeoning shoe fetish (it's one of my more stereotypical gay characteristics). Whatever. I like shoes. A lot. Especially sneakers, like these although I'd be perfectly happy with these.

So I guess I'm supposed to tag 8 other people, obviously this optional (except for Neil - he is contractually obligated to participate) but if you have the time/inclination - go for it DB, VJ, Tim, SSD, JP, Billy and Cherry.

I love airplanes too, but i'm also really obsessed with subway systems. Not sure how it all started.

Mace in a mugging? Isn't it supposed to be the other way around?

And yes, shoes rock. I have this pair that I wear to work that everyone loves, apparently they're kinda gay but I just thought they looked good. Shrug.

I already tagged Billy. :P. Guess he's popular lol.

Soul Seared Dreamer said...

[SSD in a very childish sqeaky voice]: Hahaha, you got mugged in Paris.

I agree with Jay, are you as the victim not suppose to use mace, fucking French loonie.

Bugger Jayw as right, and for a while I thought I'd escaped this manic wave of tagging. Oh well, time to put the thinking cap, I'm not sure I have 8 more things left to disclose anymore.


Where is this so-called contract? Get my agent on the phone!

Silly Billy said...

I'm done with mine.

So, #4 - I guess you will not be joining my Christmas in Paris when I win the lottery then.

And #8 - are you trying to get people so send you sneakers?!?!? Very sly. I do like the Puma ones though.

Who lit their hair on fire? Was I there? Sounds like something I would be involved with...

Those D-Squared are sooo kick-ass.

Thanks for honoring me with the tag.

@G: It was Jason. He and I were at the Thomas & Mack Center for a Phish show. During the 2nd set Jason forgot he had lit the cig in his hand and put it behind his ear. It did not smell good. Right after wards someone claiming they were Jesus got all up in our grills. It was an amusing evening.
