Five Weird Things

As payback for some bad shit that I did that I can't remember, Alanah has "tagged" me -- meaning I have to post five weird things about me by the morning, or I will die. Or something. Alanah just said "don't fuck with the magic, Avs boy."

She also said I can't post anything pornographic. YOUR LOSS!

So anyway.

1) I was a vegetarian for nine yearsish. Vegan for four of those. As happens so often, I was drunk when I blew it. In the vegetarian case, I saw a lonely leftover slice of sausage pizza. I told myself "if I feel bad about this later, I can blame it on the booze." I didn't feel bad about it later.

2) I'm crap with foreign languages, but I can say "you are very beautiful" and "may I kiss you" in Czech. I can't say, for instance, "I think I need a kidney transplant," but really -- which is more important?

3) Before I started this, back in January, I used to make fun of bloggers as self-important fools, and in fact attack them in the streets.

3a) I'm moderately drunk right now -- blueberry vodka, what the fuck? -- so it's all downhill from here.

4) Despite appearance, Tomáš Klouček is not my favorite hockey player. Nor is Ľubomír Vaic. Among current players it's Milan Hejduk -- all time would be Hejduk, Valeri Kamensky, or Willi Plett.

5) I had skin cancer when I was 24, the result of passing out on a beach in Hawaii when I was 11 or so. I survived.

There. That wasn't so bad! Now, because I need to spread the hate -- Ze Nanuk (who isn't even a hockey blog, poor sucker) and Vaic Fan get tagged. My heart goes out to both of you.

Update: Both the Inveterate Introvert and Vaic Fan have DELIVERED! Good job, both of you!

Great list.
Slightly drunk is the best way to make a 5 weird things list.
To quote slapshot:
"This is HOCKEY!"

Nicely done, Avs boy. No fuckin' with the magic on my watch. :-)

I have contributed my weirdness. I hope you're happy. Do you have another signed hockey card for me?

From what I've heard about you, G, item 3a) is business as usual. ;)

I think that the first 2 might eventually lead to the last one.

"You are very beautiful. May I kiss you?"

Then, after you've woken up in a bathtub full of ice:

"I think I need a kidney transplant."
