It's so great to be back! I have a ton of blogs and work to ketchup on, but first I'd like to thank my great blog buddies (and some newcomers) for taking the time to stop by and leave comments. You are all such wonderful people!
I was tagged by the snazzy Shadowfalcon (a great gal in London) to reveal Six Weird Things about me. I did a similar tag sometime ago, only that one called for nine weird things. So I'll just add seven more facts about me--judge for yourself whether or not they can be termed "weird." Or at least quirky. Right, Howie? ;-)
ONE: The toenail on my right foot's second toe grows unusually (a euphemism). A heavy piece of metal fell on it when I was a kid, which started the abnormality. Suffice it to say that it's a damn eyesore. Anyone with a foot fetish would be so repulsed by my right foot. Not that the left foot would win any beauty contests, either.
TWO: I used to have the hots for Robi Rosa when I was 14 or 15. He's Puerto Rican, a member of a disgustingly cutesy boy band called Menudo. And I had several of their vinyl records, including one or two hard-to-get ones.
Are you done throwing up yet?
Menudo came here several times to perform (and yes, I saved up my allowance to buy tickets. Okay, go retch again). Ricky Martin, who was also a member at the time, was only about 12 years old then. Robi's all grown up now, and there's one song of his that I do like: Mas y mas.
"Si te sueño mas, ya no podré dormirMmmmmm...
Tu, te vienes a mi
Y mi habitacion
se llenará de verde agua de mar
Verde, que me pierde
Mas y mas
Si más te quiero
Tu mucho mas
Mas y mas
Dentro de mi
Entrarás tu mas y mas"
I love the song, but hate the video.
THREE: I was in a fashion show for a local apparel company when I was eighteen. Ahh, those were the flat-belly days. Didn't like the fashion show scene all that much; the highlight of the event was when I bumped shoulders during rehearsals with the guy I had a crush on. He also gave me a brotherly peck on the cheek after the show was over. The bastard.
FOUR: I absolutely will NOT eat ice cream or chocolate that has nuts in it. I LOVE nuts (yeah, those kinds, too) but not when they're in ice cream or chocolate. (Hmmmm. On second thought...)
A twisted kind of purist, that's what I am.
FIVE: Tequila, vodka, and wine are the only non-beer alcoholic beverages that I can drink. Beer is the numero uno alcoholic drink for me, though.
SIX: I don't much enjoy watching porn, but I like reading erotica. 'Nuff said.
I won't be tagging anyone...this time. (And the world breathes a collective sigh of relief.)
