weird things about me (and TNChick)

tag - a game I don't play much
but today I will go along...
6 weird things about me ( my kids could do 66 about me)

I wonder what its like to be sane, normal, regular instead of crazy, off the chart, and XXL.
( country music reference)
I grew up catholic and was an altar boy but was never abused by a priest.
( unlike Frank McCourt)
I have raised chickens for eggs, and ended up eating a raccoon in a move of total revenge after he/she ate several of my hens. we roasted it, should have been boiled, i think, oh well!

I can't type and am too stubborn to take the time to learn, hence I am slow and leave many typos in my IM's. I went to college for five years in sociology, never got a degree, but learned to roll a really good joint.

I live with my daughter at my ex wife's house! I figured better for two adults to have the explaining to do, and let a teen have the "normality" of one closet, one kitchen, one place to sleep each night, instead of bouncing around during the week. It works out well, for now.

I am not worried that this may be as good as life gets. Many people in the world would happily trade all they have for half of what I have experienced, owned, lost and crashed.

TNChick may be weirder than I am, check her out and let me know what you think....

We raised eggs but never ate coon.

I can type but still make typos... I'm just lazy.

Good to hear from you, friend!

Joe said...


You are the winner...hands down.

I think it's great that you live with your ex for the sake of your daughter. Too few of your kind in the world these days.

Michele sent me.

Hey Dave - You're not that weird!

Here from Michele.
You are a better person than I. I try to limit my time with my ex to 0. But perhaps part of this is due to the fact that he left so early on in Nyssa's life and took his barely legal girlfriend with him. The women move in and out of his life like water. For us it is better this way.
The TEENS exit stage left on Monday here. My girl turns 20. Yeah!!!! We both survived it.

Just dropped in to check out your blog. Stop by mine sometime. Are you from Tn too?

C. H. Green said...

oops. California. I was just noticing you mentioned TNChick, and I joined Tennessee's blog ring this week. Still, come visit me.

You ate the raccoon in revenge. That's the stuff that legends are made of. What a great story. How'd it taste?
