On My List #2

Just so you know Gasoline Hobo, you are on my list. Not the one to the right of this blog, but the bad one that people don't want to be on. You are on this list for STARTING a tag.... who starts a tag? I mean, people continue tags, but who starts one? Still, with a whole day of nothing to occupy me, let's see if I can come up with 20 things...

Twenty Stupendously Interesting Things About San Nakji (Using
Gasoline Hobo as a template)

1 - My first real memory is my dad doing his famous leaping-into-his-underwear trick... don't ask, just accept

2 - I broke my tibia when I was 6 by hopping on a trampoline in Queensland Australia. My parents didn't believe I had broken my leg and thought I was faking. The took us to a tree with bats and told me to come outside and look at them. Of course I couldn't so had to wait until 2001 for the chance to see bats again. My parents suck.

3 - Like Gasoline Hobo asthma threatened my life when I was young. One time I actually remember floating above my body looking down on everything... or did I jut make that up?

4 - In highschool or as we call it, college; I decided to grow my hair long. Unfortunately for someone who's hair gets curly when long this made for the worst mullet you would have ever seen. Fortunately I grew out of this and destroyed all evidence that this ever happened. I then went on to university and shaved my head and began wearing Doc Martins. I call this my liberal nazi stage...

5 - I had all my wisdom teeth removed when I was 20. I had the only general anesthetic of my life and woke up raving about Hitler.... I have no idea why, but people withing distance of my ravings enjoyed the performance immensely...

6 - I am left handed and it took many years before I found a pen that would work for me. Unfortunately they don't make them anymore, so I will stick to typing thanks!

7 - When I was a kid, the worst nightmare I ever had involved Pink Panther coming out of my wall to his theme song. It still scares the hell out of me when I think too much about it. It may have shaped the way I live today, then again it may not have.

8 - My pet peeve would be people who litter. Spitting ain't high on my list either.

9 - My car was destroyed by a Sweet Potato Truck (Kumara in our lingo). We were turning into a farm to buy kumara when this guy decided to hit us from behind going about 100 kmph. Somehow we both lived and I suffered two small cuts from glass. The scars and the irony are still visible.

10 - My dream car is a flying one. Running entirely on solar power so it would be good for the environment. Green to the end me ;-)

11 - Ice cream is the food I love the most. Unfortunately Mrs San Nakji feels that something green and tasteless should be the food I love.

12 - When I was on my honeymoon in
Vanuatu, I ate a fruit bat. I had to wait until ate at night as they had to bring it in from Port Vila. It was done in a red wine sauce and was too full of bones for my liking. Continuing the bat theme, we had our second wedding at the local zoo and the batkeeper hang a bat off Mrs San Nakji for great photos... For the record bats are some of my favourite animals

13 - I collected coins from all over the world. I have a huge box full of them, but as I get older I don't really do it with the passion I once had. Sad, but true...

14 - I hadn't been in a bar for many years until last year when I started on the Pub Quiz circuit. I am now a passionate quizzer and every Wednesday night my team, Skorpion Blair, can be found at Northcote Tavern kicking quiz arse. Why Skorpion Blair? It is a reference from my favourite show, Family Guy.

15 - I used a bidet for the first time in Korea. It was awesome. I am trying to convince Mrs San Nakji that we need one in our toilet here. One that talked would be good...

16 - I cannot shake the habit of using three dots in pratically everything I write...

17 - As the Wall came down in Berlin I was being deported from Czechoslovakia by armed police...

18 - I was obviously continuing the family tradition as my dad was arrested by the royal guard of
Swaziland for trespass...

19 - My guinea pig became infested with mites and chewed off his fur. He then froze to death. Silly creature. Before the Humane Society gets upset with me, I took him to the vet and was giving him the best care before he left this world.

20 - I speak quite a few languages. My aim is to speak at least one from each continent, I am almost there...


So there you go. I don't know if they were interesting things or not, but hell, it takes up a lot of blog space! I would like to tag EVERYONE on my good list. It would be good to hear what you guys have to say.

Right, time for the Weekly Animal Pic...

San Nakji for President!

Lots of great info! I love it!

Gasoline Hobo said...

wait a second...so your broken leg led to a general inability to see bats? were there just bat-shaped holes in your field of vision whenever you encountered one? i am confused. :)

also, excellent job, i really enjoyed reading your list. hopefully i can get off of yours one of these days. ;)

As for getting off the list, that ain't happening, you dumped me for Space's pork damn you!
