I have written more than 1,000 posts on this site since its inception. But I feel that my readers could know more about me. So here are some random facts about me... those of you who have read my Friendster or MySpace profile will be familiar with some, but not all, of them.
- Eating raw tomatoes makes me gag...
- I'm 6'3" and love being tall except when I have to use a shower whose head is lower than I am...
- I think Don Mattingly deserves to be in the Hall of Fame...
- I've been making an effort to say "said" instead of "was like," but thus far it has been an unsuccessful transition...
- My biggest fear is that when you die, you are still conscious and are stuck in black forever without being able to move or speak...
- I write for MTV but watch VH1 Classic...
- I've been to a Super Bowl (XXIII, Bengals vs. 49ers) and a World Series (2003, Yankees vs. Marlins)...
- When I was younger I would set my alarm clock to wake up in the middle of the night and watch movies on HBO that were labeled as having SSC (strong sexual content)...
- I have Peter Pan Syndrome...
- I think the Beach Boys are better than the Beatles...
- People cracking their knuckles (or any body part) is my biggest pet peeve...
- I love to travel, but never seem to have the time to go to the places I want to visit...
- I never drank soda in elementary school because the bubbles burned my tongue and throat...
- Out of the approximately 2,000 comics I've collected, I've read less than 10%, but I won't let my parents throw them away...
- I think "The Simpsons" would have been the greatest TV show of all time if it had gone off the air about 6 years ago, but now it's unwatchable...
- I'm an excellent liar...
- In my lifetime I've listened to Def Leppard's "Hysteria" more than any other album...
- I took piano lessons for 12 years and cello for 9 weeks...
- For some reason people always open up to me, which is great because I love listening to people's stories and problems, and it lets me gather dirt on everyone...
- I'm an agnostic...
- I can count cards...
- I cannot wait to get GnR's "Chinese Democracy," even though Axl is the only original member left and he's probably clinically insane...
- I'm an animal lover...
- No matter how many people try to tell me otherwise, I don't think the U.S. version of "The Office" is funny at all...
- I prefer cold weather to warm, even though I grew up in South Florida...
- The most embarrassing song on my iPod is probably "Mandy" by Barry Manilow...
- As a kid I had phases where I was a pyromaniac and a shoplifter, but my parents busted me on both counts...
- I have a fairly high tolerance for pain but low tolerance for tickling...
- I've never been arrested but I've gotten 2 speeding tickets...
That should cover it... maybe I'll add some more after the next 1,000 posts.

I think it was post #3 that Brian came out about his skin-to-pimply-skin action with Tommy.

Just because someone likes the Beach Boys more than the Beatles doesnt make them a homo....just questioning themselves.

I'm actually kind of mad about the office thing. I don't think you've given it a chance.

Tommy Himself said...

By the way...

that's not ME Tommy. That's just some other shitheel.

Brian said...

Lindsay, I'm actually kind of mad that you're actually kind of mad about the office thing. It's not a good show. I will give you this: it's better than the US version of Coupling... although not as good as the US version of Men Behaving Badly (at least the 1st season).

Hey there,

Thanks,

Look, Donnie Baseball's a very good player (even as a Sox fan, I dig the guy), but HOF? C'mon. Doesn't have 3000 hits, doesn't have even 300 HRs, doesn't have even 1100 RBIs. Hell, his career OPS+ is 127, which is a good 15 points less than Carlos Delgado.

I dig the guy, but he's no HOF.
