Six More Useless Facts

I've been tagged by Karen at A'Musements to list 6 more unusal facts about myself. I thought I was very unique and quirky, till Donna at The Ribboned Crown, outed herself as being a fan of Extreme Cagefighting, so now I know I'm not alone, which leads to the first of my facts.

1. Like Donna, I have become a fan of mixed martial arts. I once thought of myself as being a very non-violent type person, but these guys look like brawlers and fight like tigers, but they have mad skills. There is a method behind the madness and this is a great sport. I may be a little like the decadent Romans and these guys are the gladiators. There I said it.

2. I secretly watch 'Hope Floats' every time it comes on, while riduculing romantic movies to any one who will listen. (I also find Harry Connick, Jr. somewhat sexy in this flick) and I like the mother's 'fraidy cats'.

3. My daughter said to only list one of these facts, to list both with expose me as being the redneck, that I probably am.
a. I have a pet racoon, named Woogie, he is adorable, sweet and loving and 9 years old.
b. I bring one of my favorite little hens in and let her sit in my lap. (If you watch extreme
cagefighting while holding a chicken in your lap, you might be a redneck.)
There I said it and now you know the real me.

4. I had a friend in 5th grade who had a monkey and had Buddy Hackett at his birthday party. There were lots of Jewish comedians in Las Vegas in those days, but none came to my parties.

No Picture, I didn't take enough.

5. If I knew then what I know now, I would have joined the Peace Corps and I would have taken more pictures of everything and everyone, including myself. I always thought that I am having a bad hair or skin day and tomorrow, I will look better. WRONG!

6. The first crush I ever had on a movie star was when I was six and had a crush on Robert Mitchum, if you don't count the very first one when I was 5 on Roy Rogers. (It wasn't the same after he started hanging out at the cafe with Dale.) Then at 7 came Paul Newman and that one is still in effect.

The rules:
1. Link back to the person that tagged you.
2. Post these rules on your blog.
3.Share six unimportant things about yourself.
4.Tag six people at the end of your entry.

1. Mary at Green Woman Creating.

2. Candace at Owl's Cabinet of Curiosities .

3. Sharon at Sweet Repose.

4. Nicole at Girl from Stand Up Tub Land.

5. Capitan Langstrump at Pildora Crumelus.

6. Holly at Sweetheartville.

Karen from A`Musements said...

You ARE SUCH A BABE for changing the way we (who are not Google chicks) can leave a comment!!!! Now you are REALLY in for it, since I can do it so much easier....harrass you, that is! Ha! Okay, seriously.... Roy Rogers?! Twisted. He loved his horse... did you NOT see that?! And yes, a hen in your lap I'm afraid does qualify you in the redneck round-up. However, raccoons are another thing. And Woogie is a doll baby!!! I laughed out loud SO many times reading this, Christie. God I miss you when you don't write for awhile! I'm going to make up these games and tag you all the time... ;-)
Karen, your twin from another mother....

Now I feel like a jerk. I didn't recognize the e-mail address when you tagged me, and thought it was one of my students, so I just deleted it. Sorry about that--but, then, there is absolutely nothing unusual about me that isn't strung out all over my blogs, so I hope you found somebody more accommodating to work with on this.

Nonetheless, your unusual things are pretty unusual . . . and not just a little bit interesting (envision Arte Johnson here).

Christie, help. I have a mom racoon and her six kits living in my backyard...I think their den is behind my neighbour's shed....the other morning they woke me up since four of them were playing atop the air conditioning unit....

You have a pet one? wow....

Christie!! I'm just now catching up! You had me laughing outloud!! (No, you didn't have me at 'hello'). The hen on the lap while watching the MMA REALLY cracked me up. Thanks- really!! So fricken' funny!!
