Miss Janey tagged me, and TJB threw down the gauntlet, (who you callin' a punk, punk? Huh, huh?) so here are twelve, count 'em twelve random facts about yours truly.

The fine print here: 1. Link to the person who tagged you. 2. Post the rules on your blog. 3. Write six random things about yourself. 4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them. 5. Let each person know they've been tagged and leave a comment on their blog. 6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

1. My paternal great,great grandfather was famed for shooting a guy in a bar fight, scooping out his eyeballs with a tea spoon and filling the sockets with sand, as told to me by my much beloved grandfather (who spent a spell
in jail himself) when I was just a wee tot.

2. I started out college intending to major in architecture.

3. I failed remedial college algebra...twice.

4. I spent my high school study halls doodling fashion designs.

5. I was recruited by the coach to play football in high school. I declined, citing absolute ignorance of the rules.

6. I was vegetarian for two years. It wreaked havoc on my hair, so I stopped.

7. I've been asked by two sets of lesbians to father their children. Alas
(?), neither quite panned out. One couple separated, the other got
another cat.

8. I am an only child but have 37 first cousins.

9. I like the smell of diesel. It reminds me of trips into the city.

10. I spent much of my childhood in trees.

11. I don't like horror movies.

12. Two of my favorite Christmas presents came from my paternal grandfather (up there).
a. The pony (however brief):

b. a stack of rough brown paper tablets (from the paper mill) as tall as my 5 year old self.

13. I don't do well with rules, so anyone who wants to be tagged, you're it.

#7 is one of my favorite things I've read on a blog in a while, but only the second best thing on your list, because of #1.

Twelve?!?!?! Show-off.

The link to your sketches is DI-VINE, darling! And I mean that without a whiff of glibness. Especially considering that they were hurriedly done by a 15 year old in study hall! You really should explore this further. They're remarkably professional looking.

And the photo of you on the pony is precious. I wanna put you in my back pocket.

Those are some fabulous doodles, missy!

I can not imagine being raised by one mother was bad enough but two of her and death would seem a sweet release...

I'm in love with your doodles.

And I can relate to number 10.

What an amazing coincidence! I was going to ask you to be the father of my child too, but now that those darn lesbians beat me to it, I'll just get a cat.

The pony pic reminds Miss J of her BigBro. Awesome double random post, Jason.

Now I know what you look like. Cute pony, lucky boy!
