25 Random Things Meme from Shannon

ARGH. Sucky Facebook Memeites. I curse you. I'm going to make a meme with 1000 things and make all of you answer it. Well, 1000 of you, and you'll have to pick 1000 friends and tag them and make them answer it. And I'll be a huge asshole and make the last instruction "add one extra item". I'll call it "Memefucktacular" and it shall rule you all.

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

I refuse to tag 25 people...that's invasive. I'm tagging 12.5.

1. I used to play in the cupboard.
2. I used to be a gleaner for potatoes and tomatoes.
3. I watched my mother fall down on the ice while skating and crack her head. She bled all over the ice.
4. I watched my mother pour a full pot of scalding coffee on herself.
5. I ate my father's half of his canteloupe and ran away.
6. Most of the houses in our neighborhood in Klammath Falls burned down in a big fire.
7. I heard a duck say "Hello".
8. My friend dropped a large rock on my finger. I lost a fingernail.
9. A great dane bit me in the ass.
10. A guy stole all our stereo equipment. The great dane didn't stop him.
11. My parents gave away all my wheat pennies to the owner of the great dane.
12. My father, uncle, grandfather and I got our truck stuck up to the runners in mud and had to walk back to the farm.
13. Am I done yet? Skip forward a bit. I pulled aluminum cans out of YMCA campground trash bins, covered in coffee grounds and baby diapers, to make enough money to fund a bike trip to Wisconsin.
14. I biked to Wisconsin with my friends. The next year I biked to Duluth. During those events there were baby powder fights and streaking.
15. I hit my girlfriend in the butt with a snowball from several hundred feet away.
16. I squeezed a girl's elbow at a party, not realizing it was her breast.
17. I went to RPI on a ROTC scholarship. Neither worked out.
18. I bounced across a field in a station wagon toward a cop who was ordering my friend to "Put down the gun."
19. I met my wife. She stopped me from going to graduate school in Wales. But it worked out.
20. I had Eryn. She's great.
21. I went to London. Took a picture of The Eye from the inside. Told my coworkers I'd pushed out my other coworker who was along. And was told by one of them that that wasn't a funny joke at all.
22. I was given a knowing look by people who assumed three guys in a tent in Wisconsin were gay.
23. I left programming to pursue non-programming things that were generally stressful to people who continue to be programmers.
24. I went on RAGBRAI, the ride across Iowa.
25. I failed to eat a 30" pizza with four friends.

Glad I'm not your facebook buddy and thankfully you are popular enough to not need me for you "Memefucktacular"!

So you "Had Eryn", I think Jen would disagree. But then again you don't know a boob from an elbow.

Sahm - you're tagged if I ever get that meme created.

Brad - man up. You're an equal partner in your daughter's conception and birth.

Mac - "traitor", unless you mean I traded groups. And I was thinking of you when I wrote that.
