Was it because I'm so negative?

Or maybe it was because I quoted Macho Man Randy Savage.

"That was after the tag. Are you drunk?"

No, just hungover.

The Rules
1. Link to the person who tagged you. (Done)
2. Post the rules on your blog. (Ditto)
3. Write six random things about yourself. (Gimme a sec to make some stuff up)
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them. (Oh, I know who)
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog. (That sounds like work, fuck that)
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up. (Ditto)

Six Things I Just Made Up:
1. I wear neither baseball caps nor monocles, but I do wear spectacles, which make me look smarter than I actually am, but at least I remain consistently ugly. Consistency is good.
2. The Novel From Hell® has hit 85,000 words, 85 of which are good. Now that's being consistent.
3. Unsurprisingly, I have never had anything published. Also consistent.

"You haven't tried that often."


4. The best album of 1979, Motörhead's Overkill, was released a consistent 30 years ago, coincidentally enough, in 1979.
5. I've woken up between 4 and 5 am for so many consecutive days, I cannot remember the last time I didn't. Both are models of consistency, the waking up and the advancing senility.
6. Who am I? Who are you? Why are pancakes slathered with Real Maple Syrup® so delicious?

"That's not a random thing about yourself."

Bullshit. That's the very definition of random. And you know I love pancakes slathered with Real Maple Syrup®. In fact, this meme has entirely too much order. I'm writing an angry letter to myself.

Six People I'm Just Dying To Tag:
1. susan, because she's spending far too much time being creative offline, and thus making us all look bad.
2. the dean, because he needs to keep from thinking about Greg Oden being Sam Bowie. How about that Greg Bowie?
3. okjimm, because he has to get back in the swing of the internets. Now with donuts and beer!
4. tengrain, because I'm a swine.
5. hussein x, because I know he and the rest of DC should mellow out with some fine, illegal crops for the next decade or three.
6. weepy, because randomness, like everything else, makes him cry.

Fine, we'll end on a positive note: Duke got waxed! Muahahahahahaha!

Don't forget that Lemmy Kilminster has been consistently ugly - and therefore totally hella' fucken' balls-to-the-wall awesome - since before 1979.

MRMacrum said...

Not sure consistency meets the requirements of this meme. I will report this.

And being ugly is hardly random. You have to work at it. Blogging goons will be by shortly.

Is being consistent a consistently good thing or not? You should randomly submit your work for publication Randal. Just saying...

Oh God, I bet your book would read like Proust on speed. (Me running screaming down the street nakid!)
I bet you aren't so ugly, but I am depressed you don't have a monocle, I was absolutely certain you did.

Who am I? Who are you? Why are pancakes slathered with Real Maple Syrup® so delicious?

I really have no idea at all on any of it. Especially the pancakes since I only like the fake, artifical syrup with all the nasty Preservatives.

susan said...

I'm really excited to read Hussein x's list of 6 as well as seeing who he tags.

Meanwhile, since I'm working creatively off-line (eating cookies, drinking coffee and reading a huge sci-fi novel).. No no - I'm drawing, painting, writing a short story starring Crow. Okay, I'll take your damn challenge tag.. in a little while.

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

I don't do memes. Except when I do. I'll think about it.



Randal Graves said...

chef, it's that diabolical growth. I refuse to call it a "wart." Lemmy is too cool for one of those.

mrmacrum, tattle tale. And you're right, one could say it's dandyism in reverse. It must be honed.

liberality, I'll think about it. Which is also consistent.

afeather, putting aside Proust's actual ability to write, my offline crap isn't usually as weird as this. Hmm, if I'm bringing back the top hat, why not the monocle as well!

BB, really? Even after trying the real thing? You sir, are a madman of the first rank.

susan, probably not as thrilling as Cheney's but I didn't want to get eaten.

tengrain, exactly why I chose you!

Re: the Misfits. I'll bet their next of kin were so relieved when they moved out of the house — assuming they did at some point move out of the house.

No baseball cap? No monocle? Mon Dieu!

Pancakes with real maple syrup. Yumm! Best enjoyed with a cup of full-strength, freshly brewed coffee, preferably Starbuck's or similar.

I have to go now. I'm feeling an uncontrollable urge to hie on down to Perkins.

Randal Graves said...

SWA, true, but what if Motörhead then moved in next door? The lawn would die!

Dammit, now I'm hungry for pancakes. They probably sell mini ones in the lobby vending machine, but I bet the "syrup" is nothing but HFCS with a dash of turpentine.
