Ha! &surprise! The Farber Fabulist, Dean at has tagged moi with a the "Six Random Things About Me" meme. Which is much better, considering local temperatures&shit, than asking me to stick my tongue on the school flag pole, but nonetheless a daunting task as "all things about me are random and discombobulated". Please, I will not apologize profusely and duck and run... but toe the line and come to task..... and as such and so forth and to wit&stuff... I will comply.

The Rules

1. Link to the person who tagged you.

2. Post the rules on your blog.

3. Write six random things about yourself.

4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.

5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.

6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Six random things about me-

1.) I was in no way responsible for Hurricane Katrina. or The Bay of Pigs. or Chernobyl. or 9/11. Or any Martha Stewert recipes. or Alice Cromby's two month pregnancy back in '75'. or the b&e at the Trails End Saloon in '79. I wish folks would quit talking like they do.

2.) I discovered gravity. Absolutely. It was me. Or maybe it was the 'Law of Motion' thingee. Can't remember. The deal is that "folks that are drunk fall over". I may not be a scientist, but I do remember a thing or two the next day and sometimes I write them down.

3.) I was the 175lb wrestling champ in my ninth grade intramural league.

4.) I smoked dope and drank tequila with Ken Kesey at a party back in '76 at 3am. or 3am in '76, or smoked tequila and drank dope. Alla I remember is that both felt pretty good.

5.) I am afraid of heights. Unless I drink too much tequila or smoke too much dope. Then I am just too high to worry about it.

6.) I believe that Randal Graves is the King of Bohemia, or Cleveland. The differences blur when one has had too many beers, and , god bless me &shit, I do believe I am approaching that level.

You discovered gravity? What a co-incidence, I discovered weightlessness! Sheesh, we make a good pair. ;-)

Dusty said...

omfg...this looks like fun Jimm!!!!

I won't mind doing this one..but I gotta finish feeding the ball n' chain, slopping the hogs and sucking down my chardonnay OH and that doob I rolled..will have it up tonight I promise!

Hugs Jimmy. ;)

if I still smoked dope, and I don't btw, I wouldn't mind smoking a doobie with ya.

Liberality said...

done. boy, what a relief to get all those memes done!

Distributorcap said...

too many memes too little time

ugh -----

Dusty said...

It's up sweetpea! ;)

Randal Graves said...

Hmm, no mention of the Love Canal or the Exxon Valdez. You like beer, ergo, you crashed the boat.

Isn't being the king of Bohemia an oxymoron? Don't Bohemians hate authority? I think I just called myself a moron.

Lisa said...

You really need to make Martha stop talking smack about you, the ketchup bottle and recipe development.

Wowsers, Jimmy. This was harder than I thought, but it's done. Now that it is, get back onto the mat and turn some other poor soul into a pretzel, lay off the doobage, and invent some useful stuff like an automatic beer dispenser. And, while you're at, can you just stay out of trouble once? Geez, those people in South Florida are still hating on you for sending them Andrew.

Missy said...

You are responsible for the destruction of the rain forests, then?
I will keep it under my hat. I guess the only difference between venting and back stabbing gossip is who you tell.
And I will work on this tonight. There must be at least 6 random things I haven't yet divulged on the inner tubes.
Peace, dude. Stay warm. Rawk on.

The deal is that "folks that are drunk fall over".

Scribbles furiously.

Previously I had thought the rule was "folks that are drunk sing well." I know I do.

I love the Ken Kesey story.

Thanks for playing!

Aphrodite said...

Mine's done, too, BTW.

And never believe ANYTHING about Randal Graves. Ever. He's not even HUMAN!

okjimm said...

//never believe ANYTHING about Randal Graves. Ever. He's not even HUMAN!//

;) Yes, but he lives in Cleveland which is full of sports fans that devoutly adore losing sports teams. Which is an adorable quality in any sub-human but does not lead to any sort of credibility.

I think I should write a post: Randal Graves... a Cuddly Writer or a Heavy Metal Menace?

Dear Dean // "folks that are drunk fall over".//

Indeedy Doo! It's True! When growing up I just thought it was a Wisconsin Thingee... but after practically experience in such exotic sites as Grand Forks,ND, New Orleans, Mankato, MN and Indianapolis... I have ascertained that it is a universal truth. There are still thirty-eight states, a few Canadian Provinces and more than a few foreign countries that the theory must still be tested in, but I am pretty darn sure that I am correct;.

Missy... Everything is Random in the Midwest. I must go check!

Steve Emery said...

I laughed and laughed at the Gravity item... Oh yes. And like Mary Ellen I recall discovering weightlessness, back when my young self could float down the stairs without touching one, just by thinking about it the right way. I can't remember how to do it, but I know I used to.

Missy said...

That was grueling. Phew.

Oh, and by the way, not all drunk folks fall over. I have a certain neighbor who has perfected a technique we call "the Pat Orbit." It involves redirecting the downward momentum into a circular pattern which can then be maintained indefinitely.

It is quite a sight.
