Thank you so very, very much.
Thank you so very much Sharon, The True Urban Queen. Thanks for the opportunity to write some more. Thanks so much for making my brain work overtime. No . . . really. Thanks . . . a lot.
So, basically, I’ve been tagged, and this one is a long one, so have a seat, if you please.
Ten (10) random things about moi:
1- I detest cold weather. I overdress for it to insure that I am not cold when I go outside. I stay inside as much as I possibly can.
2- I was once a fantastic dancer. They called me “Mr. Wiggles” and “Slinky”. I was truly agile.
3- I am rarely seen in something other than dress pants, dress shoes, and on most occasions, a tie.
4- I love sit-coms. I hate the “situations”, but, love the “comedy” which ensues.
5- I am the middle child (older sister, younger brother), otherwise known as “the forgotten child”.
6- I was born on a Friday. Is that why I always shout “TGIF!”?
7- I love to write. Sorry – I LOVE to write!
8- I drink either coffee or Mountain Dew all day long, seven days a week.
9- I hate fast food and rarely eat it. When I do indulge, it’s either for a Triple Bacon Cheeseburger from BURGER KING or a huge roast beef sandwich from ARBY’s.
10- I love to hear Queen Latifah sing. My favorite by her is “Travelin’ Light” .
Nine (9) ways to win my heart:
1- Know how to cook the things that I like. It’s one thing to be able to cook, but, if it’s not something that I like, it’s virtually a waste, now, isn’t it?
2- Dress like a hoochie but act like a lady (when we are together). I love a classy lady, but I also like skin.
3- Assume that I am right, and save us both a bit of time.
4- Give some personal input on the poetry and novels that I write.
5- If you’re smarter than I am, try not to flaunt it 24/7. Part of the day is OK, but, not all of it.
6- For six, seven, eight and nine – review item two (2).
Eight things I want to do before I die:
1- See the pyramids.
2- Return to Jamaica for my third and last trip.
3- Lounge around on a nude beach in Negril, Jamaica.
4- Dive from the cliff at Rick’s Bar (Negril, Jamaica).
5- Expatriate to Paris, France . . . just for three weeks or so – too many responsibilities here.
6- Attend my children’s college graduations (May, 2009)
7- Fall in love, again.
8- Write and direct a movie (sounds like some copycatting, huh?)
Seven (7) ways to annoy me:
1- If you’re not sitting up under me, at home, in your bra and panties, show your bra straps. I HATE THAT!!!!!
2- Chew on ice in my presence.
3- Make me watch a LIFETIME movie.
4- Make me watch reality shows.
5- Chew with your mouth open.
6- Clutter up my space.
7- Don’t answer when I call your name.
Six (6) things I believe in:
4- My abilities.
5- Being a gentleman.
6- True love.
Five (5) things that I am afraid of:
2- Losing my sanity, particularly to Alzheimer’s Disease.
3- Being embarrassed in public.
4- Being in very close, tight corners (claustrophobic big time!).
5- Being buried alive (slightly different from number 4).
Four (4) of my favorite things:
1- My female muses.
3- Female breasts and their “nibbles”.
Three (3) things I do daily:
1- Drink coffee.
3- Take two or three long walks (rain, snow, sleet, or hail).
Two (2) things I want to do within the hour:
1- Finish this dad-blaned post!!!!!!
2- Thank Sharon. Really. No, I mean it.
One (1) person I want to see right now:
1- My longest running female friend and muse.
D*mn, that was long!!! Hey, Sharon – thanks, babe. Really. Thanks so very, very much.
I didn’t tag anyone because I don’t think I know enough bloggers like that. So, if you haven’t been tagged, tag yourself and join in the fun. Seriously – it’s a lot of fun. No, really. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Peace.
