As some of you may have noticed from my introduction post on the Dtoid blogs, I am not really shy about sharing certain things about myself with complete strangers. If you didn't, here is a run down; I turned 38 on the third of this month, I have five kids, I have been married 18 years (I think), I drink, I smoke, and I am lazy! These are things I will be touching on later in the post. (maybe)
That was just a little preview and even though these will be numbered, it is no indication of the order of importance. :D Let's get started shall we?
I: I really do not like people!
OK, it is not all people. Tis just large amounts of people I don't know. I am fine when it is two or three at a time, however more than that and I start getting a little twitchy. Hell, I can barely stand to be around my entire family at the same time! Mainly because there is a lot of us and if you stick us all in one place, I have to leave after an hour. Building on that.....
II: ....There was a point that I did not leave the house for a year and a half. I know that sounds hard to believe, but it is very true. Granted I have gotten a little better over the years as I will go out for my anniversary or travel to California to play games. For the most part though, I stay at my house. Which leads to the next point...
III: ...I love beer!
Seriously! Beer is just awesome! I have and still do on occasion, drink 12 beers a day or more. Yes, that might make me seem like an alcoholic, but I am not. Alcoholics go to meetings. As a matter of fact, I have just finished my twelfth beer today and will keep going til I run out! Now, you would think that the amount of beer I drink would counteract the fear of crowds. Well, it does to a certain extent. Just not enough to make me want to be in a crowd all the time.
IV: I love to bitch! Really! I can and will piss and moan about damn near anything!
Why? It is much easier for me to find fault with something than to give it praise. Yes, it is a little odd, but to be honest, finding faults is in something is a lot easier than finding the good things. Hell, that is a lot of the reason I came to DT. Jim seems to piss and moan as much as I do and I love it!
I have bitched about steam, anti smoking, how the word gay is used, shitty games, peta, vegetarians, DRM, consoles, PC's, crappy music, and everything in between. There are certain things I don't like and will continue to bitch until I can't type. As I am typing this, I can think of twenty blog posts I could bitch about. Not that I would, tis just that I can think of them.
V: I love to write!
However, there are occasions where I can't really put my thoughts into words. (Which pretty much describes all the blogs I have posted here) I did write a book a couple years back for National Novel Writing Month in three weeks that I am pretty proud of! No, it is not perfect, but writing a 50k work novel in three weeks was pretty sweet to me.
Really not the point though; no matter the subject, I just love to write!
VI: I smoke! (Cigarettes and cigars) And I have no intention on quitting!
I have smoked for over 20 years and I love it and wish more people would smoke as well. Tis not because I want people to die, I just hate the fact that the government keeps wanting to control every damn thing we do!
Now I realize that some people do not like the smoke and I respect that. I go out of my way to make sure that when I smoke, I do it away from people that do not like the smell and put the butt in my pocket. Hell, I don't smoke in my new house because the wife told me I can't! OK, that is a lie. If I wanted to, I could smoke in the house. I just choose not to out of respect.
VII: I thought this would be a good time to say how much I love Final Fantasy VII.
I also get a boner playing Chrono Trigger and Battlefield 1942, but those didn't really work here.
VIII: I hate PETA!
I think I almost hate them more than Cali and NY (for their BS anti smoking laws) and the reasons should be very apparent! If they are not, well, that will have to wait for another post. :D
IX: I do not eat any vegetable or fruit!
My diet consists chicken, burger, turkey, pork chops, steak, and any other kinda meat! I do not eat any fruits or vegetables at all! You may think I am kidding, but I am not. And if you think I am a fat ass, you would be wrong. 5' 10" at 170 pounds. Sure I have a little belly, but that is because I am lazy and don't exercise! :D
X: Wellll, this one is classified.
I hope you enjoyed my 'ten things' blog and look forward to arguing with some of you in the future. :D
