8 Random Facts

I have been tagged for 8 random facts by Wishydig. There's rules:

  1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
  2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  3. People who are tagged need to write in their own blog about their eight things and include these rules in the post.
  4. At the end of your post, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  5. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

Now that those are out of the way:

  1. The first song I learned to play on guitar was "Patience" by GnR.
  2. The only movie I've ever seen in a theater more than once is Die Hard.
  3. On my 15th birthday my dad took me to my first job, working in the kitchen of an Portugeuse/Italian restaurant. I worked there for four years.
  4. In college I could beat Doom II on hard mode without dying and without using any cheat codes.
  5. I have won my fantasy football league for two straight years.
  6. I was extremely skinny in high school and college. So skinny that my dad used to call me skeletor. He hung a sign up at our graduation rehersal. It was embarrasing.
  7. I detest the telephone. In any given month I probably talk on the phone a collected six times. Almost all of these conversations are with my mother. One might be with my wife (asking me to pick something up from the store, etc). I have not talked to my best friend(s) since Christmas. They know me. They understand.
  8. I have to force myself to drink alcohol. Don't know when this happened. Certainly wasn't a problem in my 20's, now I can go weeks without drinking. I have been trying to have a glass of wine or a beer every night after dinner. I'd rather have a bowl of ice cream.

Most of the people I would tag have already been tagged, but I'll hit up:

Why are we like this now about alcohol?

I don't believe number 4.

Casey-- I guess I'm a social drinker, now that I'm married I go out less.

Brian-- believe it. Notice I said hard mode, not god mode. There were two boards I could not get past on god mode [level seven and the final board, if memory serves]

you still have the bowl of ice cream anyways.
