Tag? I Thought That Was a Body Spray


The Opinionate Diva tagged me, so I had to remove her from my blog list. That’s right. I don’t play! Ya heard!
The rules of the game are as follows:
The rules of the game are: A). Link to the person that tagged you and posts the rules on your blog...B). Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself...C). Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs...D). Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. 'E). "NO TAG BACKS"
(I don’t want to be the party pooper, but I don’t wanna tag folks, except maybe MP1, that arrogant motor scooter. LOL)


Okay, here goes….
Fact number one is that I wrote a novel last year. It is not published because it’s hard to get your foot in the door without a literary agent.

Fact number two is that I am, or was, working on getting writing and illustrating a children’s book. I wrote the narrative for the book back in my twenties, but I just started illustrating it back in August or so of last year.

Fact number three is that I am a pretty good artist. I have been in and won several art contests. Right now I only do pictures of people that look like me.

Fact number four is that I collect comic books.

Fact number five is that I like to draw and write comics as well, both superhero and comic strips. I have developed many and many of both super hero and normal comic characters.

Fact number six is that sometimes I still suck my thumb. Not as much as I use to, but if I am feeling insecure or overly content my thumb, subconsciously goes into my mouth. It is so funny, because sometime I’ll just be driving along in my squad car and not even realize that I am sucking my thumb until I pull up next to another car. Thank goodness I work at night.

And last of all, fact number seven is that I am so content living along. It is who I am. Relationships don’t work for me. I’m just not one of those people who need people people. I’m not saying that I am an island, because that would be a lie. I surround myself with a handful of wonderful people who I trust and love and that is good enough for me. Now, if love rolls my way, I am willing to stop, drop and roll with it, but I am so content along that most folks don’t believe it to be true. That being said, I would love to have a child of my own, but I don’t think I have the patience to raise a child. I love my nephew, but that boy be wearing my ass out. LOL.

At first I was so mad at you because you didn't do the tag right, but then I actually read the rules of the tag (obviously I didn't do this the first time around). So now, I realize YOU are the only one who actually read the rules!!! LOL!

I'd like to see some of these illustrations...post 'em up man!

Sucking of the thumb...woooooooooow! I am laughing so hard at the image of you in the patrol car, sucking your thumb...a grown man! Lawd!

I see feel you on number 7, but sometimes I feel bad about being so comfortable being single...like I'm not normal or something.

Laughing @ you don’t play games. “I quit school cuz of recess!” lol

My mom just published a children’s novel through her publishing company…you should check it out if you are serious…www.wozabooks.com…and I’ma need you to not suck your thumb, you are a grown ass man…

LOL @ Still sucking the thumb :-)

WhozHe said...

Ok, so I have to read this book. I wish you luck in getting it published.

You better watch yourself Diva...You have already been erased from the line up....at least in my mine you have. I am to lazy to physically do it. Too many key strokes don't you know. And hey, don't laugh at me. I am not ashame to still suck my thumb and you guys are not allowed to hold anything against me in the game of tag. That needs to be added to the list of rules, darn it.

Mspuddin, I am deadly serious and I appreciate the information. The childrens book I wrote is done, all but the drawing of course. And once again, I share these things and yall hold it against me. My uncle sucked his thumb up until the time he died. When I pass I want to be in my casket, thumb in mouth. Well, that is how I would want to be if I didn't plan on being cremated.

Hey, for all of you bad ladies and gentleman, I look damn cute when I suck my thumb. Now if I sucked my thumb and wore that sagging look, then we might have a problem.

You haven't erased me man! We practically have the same name! Stop TRYING to be a meanie.

One Man’s Opinion said...

I found the 'sucking thumb' revelation shocking and funny and yet endearing...grown azz man, sucking his thumb...such a little boy huh, at times...i like that! The childrens book, well do me over, that is great and a novel...go'on an artist too! Too much for me to hold in one day, but it was all good news!
