The six random things meme that I never did

The Rules
1. Link to the person who tagged you who in this case is Phronk who is also known as Mike.
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. (Not doing this, consider yourself tagged if you're reading)
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog. (See parenthetical above)
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up. (Oh alright)

1. Since leaving home on my 18th birthday, I have never lived anywhere longer than 5 years. The closest I got was 4 years and 10 months in the first house we bought in Long Beach, Ca. We've been in this place for nearly three years and I'm already feeling the itch. I wonder why I'm like this.

2. The top musical genres on my ipod are Jazz (by way far), Latin, Brazilian, Electronica, and Dance. The top ten most played tunes are all jazz and all instrumental.

3. Sometimes I wonder about wondering and then it's like when you are between two mirrors and they reflect you into infinity except that you can never really see the infinity; either your head is blocking it or it turns out of view.

4. One of my pinkies is removable. Here watch:

5. I've gained 20 pounds (officially now) since I quit smoking 2 days shy of nine months ago. I'm hoping that tanning the fat will be a good strategy. Having seen this technique employed by others, it seems like a worthwhile effort. Spouse says I'm a behemoth, but that's only because he's still fatter than I.

6. I think scrotums are like parmesan cheese, both are delightful but don't get too too close or the Parmesan cheese will smell like vomit and the scrotum will look like this:

(it was too ugly and marring the page)

(Number 6 goes with a wink and a nod to Snooze for this post.)

It you are, tagged you be.

What is tanning the fat? I've got plenty of fat to tan.

Mel said...

I'm just trying to lose the fat, thank you very much. But then, the only time I was a skinny bitch was when I was 20 and working as a farmhand.

Snooze said...

I just wear black year round to hide my fat rolls and lol to the scrotum shot. I made the mistake of clicking it to see a close-up. It's kind of pretty to see each hair glistening.

dpaste said...

Nah, tanning the fat just makes you look like a smoked sausage.

Scrotums close up have never bothered me.

Anonymous said...

Wow! Torn how did you remove a finger and then replace it without it hurting? You must be a magic man.
You've seen one scrotum you've seen them all. I said you've seen them all. Have you? Do you have an album of scrotums along side the pictures of clouds?

Sunshine said...

That finger trick is SOOOOO ancient. I remember doing that at primary school. ;)

Phronk said...

Because of the scrotum shot, I regret ever participating in this meme. :)

Why am I confused by the finger trick?? I can do it with a thumb but you're doing something different with actual real magic or something. Or maybe I'm just as dumb as a preschooler.

TED said...

I regret clicking on the scrotum picture. Larger than life is often not an improvement.

I don't have any trouble getting extremely up close and personal with Parmesan, however.

Rox said...

If you can't tone it, tan it. That's my motto!

20 pounds is nothing. You were a bit underweight to begin with, if you ask me.

That scrotum shot is just wrong. I don't want to know who's it is either. :)

Derwood used to to the finger trick with his thumb. The kids loved it and would get him to do it to their friends.

I would like to see video of Serge calling you a behemoth. I think it would be similar to the Peggy Babcock video! LOL!

Birdie said...

I'll do it here.

1. You leave when the toilet paper runs out.
2. I like to watch you dance to jazz.
3. We all wonder (but in the nicest way).
4. Put it back.
5. On your frame, 20 lbs. is nothing. But looking at your Twitter, I'd say peanut butter is the new cigarette.
6. Gah.

GayProf said...

I agree with David. Scrotums up close can be delightful.

Mark in DE said...

You are not fat! The 20 additional lbs. are serving you well.

Frank B said...

1. It took me quite a while before I learned to like parmesan cheese, while other things seemed to come quite naturally.

2. I lie down with dogs but do not get up with fleas.

3. I'm listening to Michael Penn as I write.

4. I like sleep because my dreams are entertaining.

5. My life was saved by dentists.

6. I am surprised at how easy it is to clean the house.

Summer said...

I'm sorry I clicked on the image. It looks rather alien that close up.

Anonymous said...

Sorry I am dum!
I didn't get the finger moving I feel that i will never know until 80.
This is not my parmesan scrotum by the way for you is my brain in the 80's.

I like how you describe #3. I can relate. I actually wrote a song a while back called "thinking about thinking"

Rick Bettencourt said...

Perhaps your moving itch will bring you back to the States. Now that our Socialist leader is in charge, it should be right up your alley. : ) Actually, I have to admit. He's doing a good job so far.

Patrick said...

Thanks to this post, I don't think I'm going to be able to smell parmesan now, without picturing scrotums. Thanks for that.

Curtis said...

My granddad used to do the removable thumb trick. My granddad frightened me.
