Five random things about you.


Ten Packs

I stole this idea from another forum - tell five random, unrelated things about you, that others would not be expect to know. Some people say simple things, like "I'm left-handed", but I tried to make mine more interesting"


1. I was born in Sask, but spent gr. 2 - 5 in Oregon, before moving to BC. At 53, I can STILL recite the Pledge of Allegiance, word-perfect, at the drop of a hat. (They're very good at cooking your gourd down there.... )

2. I worked my last day of work at age 49.... retired, and loving it. My motto is the same as The Comedy Channel: "Time Well Wasted."

3, I have an eight-inch, white pony-tail at the back of my head.

4. I am only the second owner of a very nice 1979 Chevy 3/4 ton, complete with a hitch for my 5th wheel. I take after my Dad, who is STILL the second owner of an even nicer 1962 Cadillac.

5. In the last two BC elections, there wasn't a single major party that had a candidate I believed in, so I voted Marijuana Party - even though I haven't been involved with the stuff for 25 years. They need the encouragement, anyway....

Whoa, my imagination was a little ahead of my reading here, and I started to wonder just what kind of thread this was......


1, I was born in Kelowna, BC.

2, I have a brown birthmark on the left side of my neck.

3, I am the 3rd owner of a 1948 Chev 1.5 ton truck with only 67,000 miles on it.

4, I started my first business in 1978, had some good years, some bad years, went broke 3 times, recovered twice. So I can't retire yet.

5, When I was young and living in the Okanagan, winter was my favourite season. Now my favourite is summer.

I was born in Sudbury Ontario.

I think mine is even longer than Vanni's and Ten Packs.

I don't have a full blown drivers license yet either...I let my original one expire in my youth...( I still donít think you should have to renew the stupid thing).

I think I'm a better cook than my wife, and I tell her that from time to time.

Were planning on starting a family real soon...the practicing has gone very well...

1.) i love chocolate m&m's, but i think they give me eczema (for all you americans reading this, that is pronounced eck-zee-ma, NOT eck-za-ma)
2.) i like playing euchre online at yahoo
3.) mine is even longer than tenpacks, vannis' and jays
4.) i was bred born and raised in BC
5.) i used to be really scared of spiders, so now i don't kill them, but 'rescue' them and throw them outside...the farther away the better....my theory being that it will help me not be scared...however, once they reach a certain size sometimes the fear takes over and the vacuum cleaner comes out in spite of all my best intentions (omigod, omigod, omigod, where's the vacuum cleaner? the worst is when they're gone by the time you come back with hose in hand)

4. Peace Officer for 20 years. A cog in the machine. Now beginning to question my part in all of that.
5. Hope to see the world before it's paved over or blown assunder. Finishing the counties of the Andies this year.

I don't think there are five things about me that I haven't posted someplace. Here goes though.

1. I have four dogs (1 over the legal limit), and three cats.

2. I have to go to the Folk Festival one day this weekend even though I vowed never to darken their door again when the bastards banned smoking outside in a field. Fortunately, I can hang around backstage where you can smoke whatever you want.

3. I once drove around Saskatchewan in an ancient Meteor with a roll-down rear window that wouldn't roll back up...at Christmas time, during a blizzard.

4. I have a decapitated doll spiked up on the hutch over my desk. It is my mascot. I used to have more, but my outlook has brightened.

5. I have a very important note tacked up just under the decapitated doll. It says, "Call L re: Museum. $1/word + travel." I have no idea what what it means or whose handwriting it is. I don't know if it was meant for me. I don't know why it was in my pocket. I don't know who L is or what museum it refers to. I'm pretty sure that if I find out there will be travel involved and the pay will be decent, though likely not for me since I have no idea what it's about. I put it there because it is an enigma. Enigmas are very important. Though I don't really know why. They are though. For some reason.

I'll let you know why. They let us know the brain working. Without enigma's we'd never know if our brains are REALLY functioning or if it's all just a dream.

I think I may have been copying you.
