7 earthly things (I was tagged by r)
Seven Things (You (probably, most likely) don’t know about me
Thing Number One:
I believe those you call your blood are not those whom you are tied to by birth, but those whom you would give your blood for. (Read that somewhere. I think it’s apt.)
Thing Number Two:
I don’t smoke or drink, never have, never developed a taste for it, which is a good thing seeing how I go mental sometimes. It’d be terrible to add intoxication to the mix.
Thing Number Three:
I’m fascinated by comics and novels. I know the real names of Spiderman, Batman, Superman and their love interests, the stories behind the origins of the Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider, Wonder Woman, Judge Dredd, Iron man, The Vision, The Silver Surfer…and probably most of the trivia concerning major comic characters. Been reading comics all my life. I’d read MAD, Dandy, Jinty, Mandy, Whoopee, Buster, Crunch, 2000AD, Beano etc as a child. If Bessie Bunter, Billy’s boots, Roy of the Rovers, Darkie’s Mob, D-Day Dawson, “Glory” Hunter, Fuss Pot, Desperate Dan, Chalkie (Quick on the draw), Pongo Snodgrass, The Bumpkin Billionaires, Andy Capp, The Defenders or The Avengers walked past me, I’d recognize them. By the way, Nicholas Cage was a dreadful Ghost Rider. Toby McGuire still can’t convince me he knows whom Spiderman is. And that girlfriend of his in Spiderman 3? That’s Mary Jane Watson?
Thing Number Four:
My friend, Rashboot, and I, would phone the fire brigade as 9 year olds and watch the fire trucks careen past. I’m ashamed of those things now seeing that we don’t even have functioning fire-fighters any longer.
Thing Number Five:
I don’t take medication because I don’t fall ill. I can’t explain that. I hope I don’t jinx myself with this proclamation.
Thing Number Six:
My Genotype’s AA. Blood group’s O+
Thing Number Seven:
I’d like to work on the set of “Saturday Night Live”
I tag Waffy, Chude and Storm
