Today, I’m participating in the And You Are…? Blog Hop.
Hosted by Emily R. King and Tammy Theriault, the answers to the fun questions are below, but before I bore you all to absolute tears… an update!
Signups to the Cheers, Cavanaugh BlogFest are up to 113 as of Sunday evening.
There is still time to sign up for “AlexFest,” and remember, if we get to 200, I will be posting a video on YouTube of me dancing the Bald White Guy Hawaiian Hula…, so come along and join the Par-tay J
Full details here and the Linky is posted BELOW :)
OK, so who am I and why am I here…
1. How many speeding tickets have you gotten?
ONE – and that was a week after I moved to California with my then-new Mustang GT (Ahh, the memories of speed and not listening to the latest Wiggles CDJ)
2. Can you pitch a tent?
Why would I pitch a tent when I’m working hard to pitch my WIP? Seriously, people.
3. What was your worst vacation ever?
My friends would say “every vacation I was a part of,” but I hesitate to agree. For me, it was Magaluf, Spain, 1987.
A group of us lads were out and I was later detained (cough) by Spanish cops for “slightly exuberant activity involving a cold, bubbly beverage.”
They kept me downtown for hours, trying to extract a $50 “fine” from me, but that was the rest of my money for the vacation, so I was like, no way, Jose. (He was amazed I knew his name.)
Eventually, they let me go, whereupon it took *hours* to find the white-painted hotel we were staying at.
By the time I entered the room, I expected to find phones ringing and faxes burping out stacks of important-looking paper as my friends frantically worked with the Irish Embassy and Spanish Authorities to get me back safely.
I was the first one back. The lads were still out partying ;)
4. What was the last thing you bought over $100?
A Sony Tablet two months ago – which I promptly lost on an airplane last week…
5. We're handing you the keys to what?
A new minivan J (The ghost of my old Pony is snickering, but whatever, dude.)
6. What was the last meal cooked that made even you sick?
Breakfast in Paris (1992) – it was an egg omelet made during another “event” with a different set of The Lads.
7. Fill in the blank: Oh my gosh! Becky, look at her butt! It is so big. She looks like _____?
Yo mamma. Sorry, Becky, but it’s true.
8. What was your first car?
A 1985 Pontiac Sunbird – convertible. Bought when I lived in Key West (1996) and driven for a couple of years before I moved to Chicago.
9. Your best friend falls and gets hurt. Do you ask if he/she's okay or laugh first?
If it’s one of The Lads, I will always take pictures first, post them somewhere online and then ask if he’s OK. If it’s my wife, you know I gotta take care of The Lady first J
10. What's the worst song ever?
Anything by Justin Berber Carpets.
As promised above, for anyone wanting to sign up, here is the Linky List for ALEXFEST :)
