Day 2 of this 30 day posting challenge. So far, I am enjoying it. I am really feeling a lot more engaged and motivated. It is also helping me get into a routine and schedule of working on this blog. I look forward to reading and responding to any comments you all might have.
20 Facts About Me
Today’s topic, 20 facts about me. This will be fascinating. I am going list the first 20 things that come to my mind. Hope you find it interesting. Here we go:
I am balding. It’s not too bad and I’m not terribly self-conscious about it. But still, I don’t exactly like it. I have considered shaving my head. You know, ‘cuz bald guys who intentionally go bald are cool. Bald guys who don’t want to be aren’t. I just don’t know what I would look like with a shaved head…it’s quite a dilemma.
I think I am developing a bit of an Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I don’t know if it is something one can develop over time, or if it is something you are just born with. I do know that little things tend to bother me a lot more than they ever have. It really bugs me when there are dirty dishes in the sink that are not soaking in hot soapy water. Little things like that.
I don’t like to eat sweets. When I was younger I had such a sweet tooth. I even wanted to be a baker. I must have had my fill. I still enjoy baking, but prefer to cook main dishes now. Cookies and cakes just really don’t appeal to me anymore.
I want to be a stay at home dad. It’s not really a goal or anything. But I do dream about it a lot. I would love spend the whole day at home with the kids without worrying about having to go back to work. They are just the cutest, and most entertaining. I just want to spend every minute with them.
I’ve peed in a mailbox…more than a few times. I am certainly not proud of this fact, but it is a fact. I was young, dumb, full of spunk and completely embracing my boyhood. Sorry, but it’s true. One of the best things about camping out is peeing on things.
I cannot find a dish that is too spicy for me. Several years ago I had some chicken wings that I made with one of the hottest sauces in the world. Ever since then, I have tried some of the hottest peppers and sauces. It sort of desensitized me enough to be able to truly enjoy the flavors and complexity of some really spicy dishes. Although, anything made with a Carolina Reaper is difficult.
I am a wannabe prepper. Or maybe I am a prepper, just not a very good one. I have well stocked survival “bug out” bags. Each with the essentials for basic primitive survival. I just have a hard time stockpiling items such as food and water.
I try to eat healthy most of the time, but binge on salty snacks. I don’t binge often, but when I do I just can’t stop. Pringles, Fritos, and tortilla chips are front-runners.
I watch kids TV shows more than “grown-up” shows. The joys of being a parent I suppose. Our favorites are Garfield and Friends, Sid the Science Kid, and Sheriff Callie.
I tan like a pro. I used burn like a pro, but got a really good tan once and now can easily get a nice bronze. Once summer I decided to get a tan instead of a red. I spent only 10-15 in the sun. But I but I did it every single day, and without sunscreen. By the end of summer I had a expert looking tan. And ever since, had never really needed sunscreen.
I was once able to do 100 chin-ups in a row. Again, over the summer. I started with 1. Then added one more every day for 100 days.
Chick flicks make me cry. Well, not really. I did tear up when I first saw “The Notebook” though. That’s right, I admit it. It is a good movie a very emotional story. Anyone who disagrees has no soul.
I have skinned a coyote. First time skinning an animal. It was a learning experience. Not nearly as hard as plucking a duck…never again.
I have hatched and raised chickens. And I would do it again. It was so much fun. I really enjoyed taking care of them and collecting eggs everyday. An educational experience for Delilah as well. Here’s a great I learned: If they won’t lay, give them hot pepper seeds. You’ll have eggs within days.
I really enjoy making things out of nothing. I used to like to paint and make music. I really enjoy gardening and cooking. Fixing things and creating things are some the my greatest pleasures.
I am a big supporter for the paleo-diet. I just feel that it is the most natural diet for weight loss and healthy living.
I love motorcycles. And I will get another one. Period.
I want to camp at Yellowstone National Park for a week. Since our little teaser day through the park, I cannot stop thinking about spending a whole week there. What an amazing place.
I like weddings. I used to edit wedding videos and have been to probably close to 100 weddings. The receptions are the best planned parties with the best music and a great way for families to get together and have fun. Side note, I may be catering my first wedding next year!
I have a pimple on my nose. It’s great, I feel like teenager again! LOL.
