I got tagged!!!!!

Last week I was tagged in a post by Brett Minor at the Transformed Nonconformist. Brett is, by far, the funniest and smartest person I know. No one is a better person than him.

According to his post, I am to answer these 11 questions and then tag 11 more bloggers to answer them. I will not be able to tag anyone since the few people I follow have already been tagged by other people.

1. Book or movie and why?

I’ve been a movie buff since I was a little kid.  I always went to the movies even when I didn’t have anybody to go with.  When I was in the Navy in San Diego, the base had a free movie theater, so we went a lot!!! 

2. Real book or e-book?

I haven’t really read an e-book expect my Bible on my phone and it’s great because I don’t have to have a lamp or hold a big Bible since it’s on my phone

3. Funniest thing you've done in the last 5 years?

When I’m out in public people ask me sometimes why I walk with a bad limp.  I have had some fun times with this.
Best one was when a friend and I were at a NCAA basketball game in STL and I was in my wheelchair. A guy asked me why I was in my chair and I told him that it was a Shark Attack.
The guy gasped and was taken back and then my buddy said not an actual shark, but a loan shark.

4. Do you put yourself into the books you read/write or the movies you watch?

Well, since I love movies (maybe more than the “Movie Whore”) I tend to feel like Keanu Reeves.  Sometimes, I feel like Bill from Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventures.  Other times I feel like him in The Matrix.  Lastly, I feel like I can beat demons in Constantine.

5. How would your best friend describe you?

This was taken from Brett’s blog just the other day so I will let his words be posted here
“With the writing of this post, hopefully my regular readers now know that the friend that I refer to is not a whiny home bound reject. In fact, he just got a date with one of the girls that was fixing his hair. He does actually have a brain and a life and goes to more places than just the hospital and bathroom.”

6. Favorite kind of car and why?
I’ve never had a new car and I’ve always paid cash for the vehicles I’ve had.  I was just talking about this today.  

I have always wanted a purple Chevy Tahoe…They are big and awesome like me…and purple is a stand out color…plus I love Barney!!!!

7. Would your choice of party be a catered meal or barbecue out back?

I don’t want to sound corny or sappy but, my dad (aka Pops) was the best barbecue griller I know.  We had so many family cookouts the last year before he died last Oct.  I would give anything to taste his pork chops or Illinois potatoes on the smoker.  Not only was he a great cook, he was an even better man.

8. What's your favorite season and why?

I will attend Oktoberfest before I die.  Oktoberfest in Germany begins Saturday, September 22, 2012, and ends Sunday, October 7, 2012. I don’t think that I will make it this year, this picture should help

9. What specific lesson have you learned - Spiritual, educational, occupational?

Spiritually – For a long time, the Israelites couldn’t eat bacon.  That is why I think people were upset in the Old Testament.

Educationally     4xy+5x+-2b = b²-v5x      Screw this crap, I'll be a drug dealer

Occupational - I decided to burn lots of calories, I set a fat kid on fire.

10. Besides writing, what's your favorite thing to do when you get some extra time?

I love music and I’m always working on music for my DJ shows or learning new music!!!
And getting ready for Bozo’s party of the year!!!!

11. What's one place you can be found at least one time every week?

This last year at Christmas my friend got me Ryan’s (it’s a buffet restaurant in my hometown) coupons that are buy one, get one free.  So I go to lunch with a lot of different people at least one a week.  Its like 5 bucks a person with the coupon.
P.S. Went there with Brett today…

DJ Song of Week...So good B.o.B


  1. Once a week at Ryan's, just once? Are you there four times a week?

    Now I know why you sing that I love you, you know me song all the time.

    1. Ya yes the Barney song, my favorite!!!!

      Where oh where is Red??? I made a quote for here and still no post....Hope I didn't upset her with the Movie Whore comment!!!

    2. "Red" was in Baltimore with Misty, the Movie Whore, and a friend from real life. She's back, and working on a post for today.

  2. ahahaha Did the guy believe you about the loan shark thing or did you tell him the truth?

    Also, you finally listed a song I've never heard before! (Of course, I don't listen to rap, but that's not the point. lol)

    1. Thanks again Rachel...No we just left it like that!!! takes too long to tell people about the blood disorder so I just say that I was in a car wreck mainly...

      But, sometimes it fun to place with to laugh at a bad situation.

      That song isn't rap its more R&B!!! But, I knew that I would get ya soon or later!!!

    2. hahaha One day, he may end up reading your blog and discovering that you played a joke on him.

      I am sorry for what you went through, but I'm glad you've found a way to make it positive for yourself.

      Ahhh, same difference to me. haha I don't really know rap from R&B so I'll take your word for it. But I wonder if you can find another song I haven't heard, that isn't in the rap/R&B genre?

    3. What genre do you like besides country?

    4. Most rock and some pop, mainly, but I'm open to nearly all genres (well, besides rap and R&B, I just don't care for those).

    5. One of my favorite artist and songs is Edwin McCain I'll be and Could not ask for more!!!! Great songs kinda of sappy but, still good..

    6. haha I know both of the songs, but I didn't know the name of I'll Be so I had to look it up before I recognized it.

      My favorite song since I was two is Tim McGraw's Don't Take The Girl. My mom refuses to let me play that song anymore because I used to make her play it all the time, so I have to use ear phones when I'm around her now. lol

    7. That's a crying song for sure!!! His new one is pretty good..(I love country too, but sometimes when I play it at certain places I get yelled for playing it...)

      Better than I used to be....

    8. haha I'm not sure if I know which new song you're talking about. He's had a few recently, but I know most of his music.

      It's a little disappointing how many people hate country music. I understand different musical tastes and all, but it seems some people don't even give it a chance.

  3. Fun to read more about you, Train, and thanks for the mention (again)! Get those songs ready... we need the party to be extra special! ;-)

    1. Bozo- I'm glad that you are okay!!!! I was worried about you...Glad to know that you were safe!!!

    2. Thanks, Train! Made me so happy to get back to blogger and find all of you asking about me!

  4. okay, I have to disagree about Keanu Reeves. he's a tool. Except for Bill & Ted, in which he was *supposed* to be that way, so it worked.

    And it takes a real man to admit to wanting a purple vehicle!

    1. Oh I have been waiting for this response!!! I have to disagree..Constantine was a great movie I thought and The Matrix (the first one) was mind blowing!!!

      Yes a purple vehicle has always been my dream~~~

      Hope you can attend Oktoberfest with us!!! lol

    2. LOVE TO! Germany doesn't export their good stuff. You have to be there to get it. I'll start brushing up on my German.
      Auf Wiedersehen!

    3. hoffentlich haben Sie einen schoenen tag und vielen dank fuer deine antwort

    4. Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Machts gut!
