Tagged by JB

A new reader of The Post Game Show, JB decided to hit me with a meme to kinda mix things up around here, and after getting my body post out of the way, I'm ready to tackle this here assignment.

Here are the rules:

1. Link the person who tagged you…

2. Mention the rules in your blog…

3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours

4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them

5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

1. I can pop my right knee at will. Four summers ago while playing pick-up ball in New Castle, DE, I went up for a shot and apparently every part of my body made the trip upward except my right knee. The pain was indescribable and I gimped around for a few weeks, and then the pain ceased. However, my right knee would pop loudly, to the point where people thought I had gas problems, but I had to pull up my sweatpants' leg and show them that my knee is a lil worse for ware.

2. Ambidextrous is my middle name. Well, James is officially, but I can do pretty much anything with my right hand (strong hand) and my left hand. Shoot a basketball, cut my food, drive a car, you name it, I can do it with both hands. I always had a secret jealously of left-handed people because it seems like everybody's a righty, you know? So I taught myself to do a bunch of things left handed, and now I can do them without thinking "hey, I just used my left to make that shot."

3. I love cartoons, but am too cheap to pay for DirecTV so I can watch Boomerang. Boomerang is Cartoon Network's old school channel with all of my favorites from way back in the day, when we used to watch USA Cartoon Express before AND after school. That was the task, get homework done so I could catch Hanna Barbera toons until the Sixers played on WPHL17 or my bedtime, whichever came first. Those were the days.

4. I'm good at remixing current hits by giving them different lyrics and subjects, therefore satisfying my ignorance quotient daily. From greens to being so full, your boy is a goofball of epic proportions. I might have another one in the works, so stay tuned.

5. I really don't mind looking at myself in the mirror. For the most part. While I know that my size nor skin tone makes me the most desirable guy to women, I can find some things physically that I'm happy with. I guess when I feel my lowest and start picking myself apart is when I'm lonesome and feeling like I'll never catch a break in the dating department. But most of the time, I'm o.k. with what I see, and the improvements I need to make are minute ones.

6. I guess I would end this on a somewhat unhappy note, but chances are if we haven't talked in two or three weeks, I really don't want to talk to you. Right now, I can think of at least two folks who I need to cut off (don't worry, it's none of you guys), but instead of drama, I just let them slowly fade out of my life. I eventually delete from buddy lists, friends lists and the like, and I really don't feel I owe anyone an explanation why. Apparently on another forum I frequent, that's grounds for disrespect, but whatever. If I don't want to be bothered with you, I just don't. End of story.

I'm not going to tag anybody because I know my circle is still incestuous to the point where I've seen this a few times, LOL, but anybody that wants to do it can give it a whirl.

    1. uh… yikes!
    2. This is funny… a secret jealousy huh?
    3. LOL @ too cheap. I feel the same way about the movie channels… I really would like to have all of them but it’s just not gonna happen. It’s crazy how much these damn people want for some freakin television.
    4. Staying tuned…
    5. I want you to email me a picture… please?? Unless you’ll post it on your blog? Come on dude…work with me here.
    6. aww… those poor unsuspecting people. Sometimes though… you just have to take the nonsense out. Yahoo IM : intellectuallyme

    1. i used to flip my eyelids out to scare my neice. do you ever use your magic power for evil?
    2. which hand do you type with faster?
    3. i miss the old school cartoons. used to love me some he-man.
    4. yeah, when i first started checking out your spot (read: lurking) that remix of so ful was one of the first things i saw. foolish.
    5. me either, but i don't usually admit it. even in the department stores, almost everytime i pass a mirror at the jewelry counters and stuff i have to do a quick check.
    6. out of sight out of mind. and if you fall out of the regular rotation, it'll take some time to work your way back up on the list. it's like unto taking someone off the myspace top eight. (just using this as an example cause i'm probably the only living person my age who doesn't have a myspace).

    HA! I'm left handed!!! Be jealous. Jaybee I never thought about that. Typing with one hand faster. I don't think I can do that.

    Gotta, I can't tell you how many times my mom whined about my beat-boxing knee the one month I was at home after I graduated from college, LOL...and thank you again for the kind words in your e-mail, I appreciate it.

    Jay, my left hand is pretty fast for some reason, I guess because it's the closest one to the shift key, lol...can't say I've ever used it for evil, even though as I've told Gotta, it really bothered my mom at one point.

    Why you gotta rub it in, Brittany? LOL

    getting rid of people who weigh you down is hot for all years. 06, 07, 08, 09... ALL YEARS I SAY! i dont' think that's an unhappy note. you need to rid yourself of dead weight. right knee poppin? nasty. i used to have a bit of left hand jealousy too. i taught myself to write left handed, upside down & both. i got so good that my upside down, left-handed writing was better than some folks right side up, dominant hand writing.
