About Me

Not long ago, JBoogie posted a blog listing some interesting facts about herself.  I enjoyed that blog, and have been inspired to write one about myself.  Here it is...

1.  I am 46 years old.  I bought my first motorcycle when I was 43.  No, it wasn't a mid-life crisis, it was when I could finally afford one.  I've wanted one all my life.

2.  I am a practicing Catholic, but I have never been a Bible thumper.  I respect people's rights to their own beliefs, and ask for the same respect and generally receive it.  I say generally because I have been mocked in the past for my beliefs.

3.  I smoke a pipe, but not the kind you buy in a head shop.

4.  I have never used any type of drug.  Nothing at all that wasn't prescribed for me.  No high school experimentation, nothing.  I want to try marijuana when I retire, just to see what the big deal is.

5.  EDIT: Changed my mind about posting this one.  Move along, nothing to see here.

6.  My dad died when I was 19.  I left the Army for seven years to help my mom raise my two little brothers.  I have one older brother as well.

7.  I despise loud noise.  I can't stand to hear someone else's music whether it is coming from next door or the car in the next lane.

8.  Here's an interesting one:  I'm in the Army, and I don't like guns.  They're too loud, too scary, too dangerous, etc.  I wasn't always like that, but after 20 years in the Army.... well, never mind.  I just need to retire.

9.  When I  do retire, I do not want a retirement ceremony or a retirement award.  I just want to quietly walk away, leave my demons behind me (fat chance), and get on with my life.

10. I've been married for 20 years.  I have no idea how my wife tolerates me.

11. I weighed 160 pounds when I joined the Army.  I now weigh 225.  No, I didn't do that by going to the gym, I did that by NOT going to the gym.

12. I've been to Iraq twice.  On my last tour we got extended and stayed there for 15 months.  My wife says I talk in my sleep now.  She says it started when I came back from Iraq the second time.  Apparently I've been saying some pretty weird shit.

13. I am a member of the Patriot Guard, but I have never participated in a blockade of the westboro shit-head church, because I genuinely think I would lose all self control and wind up in jail for aggravated assault.  MULTIPLE counts of aggravated assault.

14.  I love this website, but I'm not obsessed with it.  I hope everyone has a great Sunday.  After I go to Mass, I'm taking the wife out on the bike.  We won't know where we're going until we get there.
