‘You shall not make any cuts on your body for the dead or tattoo yourselves: I am the LORD.’  ~ Leviticus 19:28

Kierstyn tagged me over at her blog, so here are eight random things about myself.  You may find some funny; others you may find creepy. 

8 Random Things about me: 

1.  When the current war in Iraq started, I bought 25,000 Iraqi Dinars in the hopes that they will be worth a lot more in the future, once the country is stabilized.  (If that ever happens.) 

2.  I am always careful about having pens in my pocket when I am driving so that, should I get into a wreck, the seatbelt won’t break the pen and ruin my shirt.  (Ashlee LOVES that one!) 

3.  I’m very apprehensive about sleeping in my boxers.  (I don’t want to be standing outside in my drawers if the house catches on fire.) 

4.  I can juggle. 

5.  I have three tattoos. 

6.  My oldest sibling (sister) is 38 (39 in November) and my youngest (half-sister) is 6. 

7.  I don’t believe we landed a man on the Moon. 

8.  I once ate a Freeb!rds Super Monster AND an extra-large steak (76 ounces) at the Country Inn in Somerville within a week of each other on dares.  (I do NOT accept such challenges any longer.)

ATTENTION Kierstyn, Rachel, Hannah, Marian, Wendy, et al.  Y’all have GOT TO READ THIS!  (And Ashlee, for that matter.)

It amazes me how lazy some people can be

Which country does this quote refer to?  (Ah, it’s not what you’re thinking!): ‘Obesity levels in adults and children have risen steadily over the past ten years, with marked increases in men aged 35-64 and in women aged 35-44. These figures provide little evidence that current approaches to obesity are having any impact.’    

——————

A recent study dismisses any links between the Mercury-based preservatives once used in vaccines and autism in children.  Still, the anecdotal evidence is so strong as to suggest that something links the two.

Although I watch very little NFL football these days (the fellowship at the Colemans’ and/ or Ayers’ is just too good), I have noticed that you must be on your guard during the commercial breaks.  If you get caught unawares, you could find yourself subjected to what amounts to soft-core pornography

Here is a discussion regarding the weirdos we pay to ‘talk dirty’ to our children

‘It’s time for the human race to enter the solar system!  ~ Dan Quayle, former U.S. Vice President on the concept of a manned mission to Mars.

  1. Thank you very much for responding to my tag! On the pen thing, imagine if you had a pen in your PANTS pocket and were in an accident. Yikes!

    And on the whole 17 lb baby, that just sealed the deal. No #4 for the Krajcas! 🙂

  2. The Iraqi Dinars plan is cool. Keep us posted on that one.

    It is also good to know that if I ever burglarize your house in the night, the last thing I see will not be you in your boxers at the other end of a shotgun, but rather a modestly dressed you at the other end of a shotgun. But let me ask you this: which would be a greater deterrent? I think a nice sign saying “Pasty white Occupant sleeps in the buff” could go a long way. It would fit in nicely with one of those, “This home is protected by Smith & Wesson” signs.

  3. Kyle, where’s the love, man?! I take umbrage with the ‘pasty white’ label. I have one HECK of a farmer’s tan!

    Also, I do have one of those funny signs. Mine has a picture of a pistol with the words, ‘Those Found Here To-night Will Be Found Here To-morrow.’

    Oh, yeah: Carthage Must Be Destroyed!
