8 random facts about ColbyPants

Well that little punkass f00 (I mean it in the nicest way possible) Princesse Ecossaise insisted I do this, and so here it goes:

1) My online tag name is derived from a dog I had when I was with my ex-wife, named Colby, who along with my other dog Murphy, I still miss terribly several years later. No, at no time did he ever wear pants.

2) Unlike the Princesse, I adore meat. Not because I have some special hate for animals (actually quite the opposite, I have been known to support the local ASPCA, or Humane Society), but I have to say that a nice juicy Porterhouse Steak (rare) with onions & mushrooms is one of the finest things a person can experience.

3) Up until my divorce, I was a hard core anti smoking Nazi. If you are at this site reading this post, you know why this is hysterical.

4) I am horribly claustrophobic. I am convinced this is why I failed Spanish repeatedly in HS, and history on college (anxiety from being in classrooms with no windows). The weird part is that I never had this issue as a kid (loved hide and seek, loved exploring caves) it came as I got older.

5) I pride myself on being open-minded, but know deep in my heart I could never be in a relationship with a New York Yankee Fan. (though I don't have to worry about that anymore cause I have a lovely girl who roots for the Indians!).

6) I got to meet Allen Ginsberg when I was in 9th grade, who was probably the coolest well known person I ever met. He read my favorite poem of his that night at the reading that followed just because I asked. Too Cool.

7) I read all the Baby Sitters Club books as a kid. Yep. Me. Heh.

8) I like International Soccer more than American Football. Shhh. don't tell anyone!
