Three Things That Scare Me:
Anything bad happening to my daughter
My mother’s cancer medication no longer holding back the tumors
Three People Who Make Me Laugh:
LatteGirl – she usually doesn’t like it when I laugh, but she amuses the hell out of me.
Lewis Black – Maybe the best political comic ever.
Bill Engvall – He may be best known for his “Here’s your sign” routines, but he has the most hysterical views on marriage and family. (This was a tough one and Jeff Foxworthy is really an equal here for me).
Three Things I Love:
The Beach (which is why I will always live in a coastal State)
Triple Venti Gingerbread Latte
Three Things I Hate:
Religous Zealots – they don’t get that “Freedom of Religion” doesn’t mean Freedom Of Religion as long as you subscribe to my religion. William Donohue, Dr. James Dobson and Pat Robertson are excellent examples.
Monsanto (have they come up with anything yet that hasn’t been determined to cause cancer, or isn’t toxic? That may be fine if you are a chemical company… but not one that deals with FOOD)
Those Apple Computer Ads – Macs are nice little toys, and can survive because they are in a nice little niche. Stop trying to be more, because if you have to play by the same rules as everybody else (you know things like Backwards Compatibility, opening up your hardware to other vendors to avoid anti-trust), that neat little “hippness” will go away real quickly.
Three Things I Donâ€™t Understand:
How some people can justify violence against others, “In the name of Jesus” Just doesn’t make sense.
Why grass refuses to grow in certain patches of my lawn
How hospitals can charge upwards of $5,000 a day per bed and still lose money
Three Things On My Desk:
Maxtor External Hard Drive
Coffee Cup (regrettably empty at this point)
New Jersey Devils hat
Three Things Iâ€™m Doing Right Now:
Fretting over a dentist appointment this evening
Three Things I Want To Do Before I Die:
Walk my daughter down the aisle
See a time where people are more important that Corporations again
Write a book about how I helped in the crusade to stop Factory Farming (of course we have to stop factory farming first)
Three Things I Can Do:
Play “Devil’s Advocate” to just about any argument convincingly
Love and Hate Microsoft at the same time
Bake and Decorate a professional quality Wedding Cake
Three Things I Canâ€™t Do:
Understand the SUV craze in this country.Â Most don’t have the storage capacity of a standard sedan, much less a Mini-Van, and they are horrible on gas.Â Just who do you think you are fooling into believing you are offroading while you have that Eddie Bauer Car Seat sitting in the back there sport?
Sew – It is a good thing I was such a good cook, otherwise I would have flunked Home Economics.
Deal with vomit – I can change diapers without a problem, I can handle just about any other child rearing task.Â Just don’t ask me to deal with vomit.
Three Things I Think You Should Listen To:
Birds – no they aren’t a music group.Â One morning, just step outside, and listen to the birds.Â It is a lot like stopping to smell the roses, but with farÂ less risk of allergic reactions.
Your Heart – Stop letting others dictate what you should and shouldn’t do.Â Your heart will usually guide you in the right direction.
Cannon in D – If this can’t de-stress you immediately, seek medical attention.
Three Things You Should Never Listen To:
Bill O’Reilly – The man has gone so far over the edge, that Geraldo is respectable by comparison.
People who tell you how to live your life. – Their decisions are fine for their own life, but that may not be what is best for you.
Teenager “Logic” – it will only give you a headache.
Three Things Iâ€™d Like To Learn:
How to keep our dogs off the furniture
How to get me my daughter to pick up her clothes and put them in the hamper without having to ask her
How to strech a day out to about 29 or so hours
Three Favorite Foods:
Room Temperature Food
Three Things I Regret:
That my parents didn’t think it was right to sue the school when I shattered my kneecap at a school event.
Being an a troublesome teen (Well into my twenties)
Not making it to the hospital in time the day my father passed away.
Now to tag three people that (I think) visit here and will do a Meme and won’t kill me for it.
