I Have Asperger's...Are You Sure 6 Is Enough??

I swore I'd not do meme's, and I've kept that... still, I like Vinny, so...

1. Link to the person that tagged you
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website

1. I can tear a phone book in half.
2. I once threatened to stab an actor in the eye with a sharp pencil, then denied it to his agent.
3. My Confirmation name is Rita. Yeah.
4. I watch the Sci-Fi channel quite a bit.
5. Sometimes, when I start laughing, I can't stop, especially when my boys egg me on.
6. I demonstrated and sold dulcimers at one time.

I'm not going to tag anyone, sorry!

Knowing this, why that certain schmuck would continue to press his luck is beyond me.

Police Sgt: We have a situation!

Bomb Squad Captain: What's going on?

Police Sgt: We have a ticking Quin!

Bomb Squad Captain: Forget it, I'm outta here!

My confirmation name is Anthony. I asked for Jesus and the nuns about had a heart attack, showing that penguins have no sense of humor.

My grandmother paid me $4 to pick Rebecca as my confirmation name, as it was her mother's name. It's good to know at least my pricetag has come up since then.
Double neuters, woohooo!
I like Vinny too.
You so sound pretty tough, Quin. We should go diving some time.
(...means hit the dive bars.)

You ARE the Bionic Woman!
You're Confirmation name shoulda' been Jamie, as in Sommers.

I can tear a phone book in half, too. Bess Myerson demonstrated it on TV once when I was a tiny kid and I tried it just as soon as my hands were big enough to go around it. (At that stage of my life, I could pick up a phone book but I had to carry it in both arms.)

I amend that. I COULD tear a phone book in half, and I know the technique, but I'm not sure I CAN do it anymore. You don't need to be particularly strong but you do need a firm grip, which I haven't got anymore.

Quin Browne said...

gw~the size of the one i can tear has diminished...

how are those boys in brown shorts???

They don't come into our offices. If they have deliveries for us, they bring them to Reception. We have not one chocolaty truck anywhere in our lot.
