The Meme Thang and Jake!

14 March 2009 9 Comments

Well it's Saturday morning and it's fricken cold and rainy AGAIN here in the NC foothills!  I guess that's a good thing since the ACC tournament is going on and we'll be in front of the TV quite a bit today anyway...  Makes for a good day to get caught up on all the computer stuff I'm behind on as well!!  Now if that coffee will ever get done!

Brandon, over at The Almost Millionaire, was kind enough to tag me with the Meme thang hahaha..  What the hell is Meme?  I admit I had never heard the term but basically a blogger will write about something / anything / nothing in particular, then tag someone else and the person tagged does the same thing tagging others etc etc.. you get the idea.

Now, I look at this in a couple of different ways..  over at Myspace, I get sick of seeing all the bulletins where people have all those question/answer things...  I've always thought that if you have time to do those bulletins every day, contact me and we'll get you up a blog set up for less than 10 bucks a month and you can blog your heart out and at least have your own website!

Which brings me to this... I kind of like this Meme thing for the blogs because for one, there has been quite a bit of disccussion lately on "letting your hair down" on your own blog and just being yourself!  Read this post if you want to get a taste of what I'm talking about!  I've always just been me here at JakeCpuNut and just like this blog is called, it's "My Life as I See It"!  So anyways, I think it's cool to be able to show your personality on your blog and this Meme thing that Brandon tagged me on is along those lines!

BTW, I've already did a 25 random things about me over at my Facebook, so you may want to check that out as well...  I'm not even going to look and see what I wrote over there, so some of that may come out here haha..

Oh, and here are the rules of this meme...

  1. Link to your original tagger(s) and list these rules in your post.
  2. Share seven facts about yourself in the post.
  3. Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
  4. Let them know they’ve been tagged.

Seven Things About Jake

Uno -  I am engaged to my best friend Misty.  One thing about our relationship that most don't know is she's 17 years my younger... but since I'm a big kid, it works out perfect! Ha!  Some folks have had a real problem with that... to those people I say... KISS MY ASS!  hahaha

Dos - Brandon mentioned on his blog how so many people LIVE ON THEIR computers.. I'm one of those!  It absolutely floors me to hear somebody say "i don't have a computer" or "i don't have the internet"!  I just can't comprehend that!  I love all aspects of the computer, working on them, playing on them and everything in between!

Tres - I'm a rapper ya'll!  Ha!  Seriously, I LOVE rap music..  Most of the Friday's Videos are rap videos.  I love sitting out in my truck and thumpin, watchin the neighbors peaking out of the curtains wondering what the hell a 43 year old man is doing blasting rap music and rattling THEIR windows with my bass!

Cuatro - My mom died when I was 10 and my daddy died when I was 13.  I finally let them go when I was 32 years old.  I struggled for a long time with their deaths, but now I look back and see that it made me stronger and has allowed me to help others deal with loss at different times.

Cinco - I have 5 tattoos and want at least 2 mo!  The last one hurt so bad I almost cried but hung in there hahah.. nothing like a rib cage tattoo!

Seis - One thing in my life that I can't seem to conquer is anxiety problems.  I HATE it!  It has gotten much better over the years (thank u little pink pill)!  There's nothing worse that a fear of fear.  Yeah I know that may not make sense to you unless you suffer from panic attacks.  But, it's ok.. i deal with it!

Siete - I have a daughter that's 21, a grandson that's 7 months old and Misty and I are planning on having kid(s)!

So there ya go... a few things about Jake...  learn anything? haha
