Thirty-Seven Things You Did Not Know (about me) and Were Afraid to Ask.

There comes a time in every blogger's life when they need to share just a few more things about their lives... Here are thirty-seven more from me.

Exciting isn't it? I mean there just may be a tidbit in these thirty-seven things that will make you ooh and ah about the man writing these words.

No really, there just might be.

If not, if you can go through this entire post and not have a question about who I am and what I am about, then you need to ask a question of me, because I have failed to produce a satisfactory post and I don't want to do that.

That's my way of pandering for comments now people! I promise to answer all questions in a future post. No really, I do promise.

For now, sit back and enjoy this thirty-seven bits of information, and don't forget to ask a question for me at the end --- in the comments section. :)

1. Do you like blue cheese? Yes, usually in dressing, but I have been known to have some on a burger every now and again.

2. Have you ever smoked? Yes, but I didn't inhale. Seriously, I smoke cigarettes like cigars, and only when I am drunk and bored and at a night club. In other words, a very, very, VERY long time ago. (Kids, this does not mean that it is okay).
