sCrap. Another 10 Truths Meme.


honest-scrap_Soylent Green 090823

Although he blames others, I blame cbullitt for this. The meme requires the recipient (mwah) to post 10 True Facts about himself/herself (mwah also) and to nominate 10 more suckers. At this rate the entire blogosphere should be covered in a matter of days.  So here we go:

1.  The Beatles’ “Hard Day’s Night” was the first record I owned, and it was a 45rpm.  I liked the B-side better: “I Should’ve Known Better.”

2.   Once I played rhythm guitar for a LDS teen dance without knowing all the chord patterns for some of the songs, so I just turned my volume down to -1 and faked it.

3.  I understand trigonometry but not calculus.

4.  Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil” is one of my favorite movies, as is “The Caine Mutiny” and “Cool Hand Luke.”

5.  I’ve read David Kahn’s “The Code Breakers” unabridged version and understood a lot of it.

6.  I played the part of “Action” in a high school production of West Side Story, and I was a catlike ball of fury.

7.  I was born with heterochromia, but I’ve never suffered because of it.

8.  I can use the word “polyisocyanurate” correctly in a spoken sentence without stuttering.

9.  My ancestry includes Scottish, Irish, English, German, Swedish and 1600’s Italian royalty.  In other words, European Mutt.

10.  In the mid-1980s I decided to see how much junk mail was generated from information request postcards from construction industry trade magazines. The result? A LOT.  The name I filled in that generated the most unrequested junk mail was…  Bunk Strutts.

Now for the hard part.  In no particular order:

1. Notoriously Conservative

2. Amy Oops

3. Finnicky Penguin

4. Planetross

5. Phil

6. Dan@Rockhoppers

7. Archie

8. The Literary Horse

9. Chiquiworld

10.  Hanuman

    So how many hardboiled eggs can you eat ?

  2. nursemyra Says:

    I wish I’d seen you in #6

  3. Bunk Strutts Says:

    ArmedGeek– Let’s see the money first.

    nursem– I got to “rape” Anita, too.

  4. cbullitt Says:

    I don’t get much call for polyisocyanurate–if I’m that mad I still chew fiberglass.

    I got some great French porn spam–it always sounds less like porn in French.
    I have no idea what Latvian porn sounds like, other than the saxophone music.

    In high school I played Orsino in Twelfth Night, the least funny of Willy The Shake’s comedies.
    There is only one thing worse than high school Shakespeare–high school Shakespearean comedy.

  5. Bunk Strutts Says:

    cbull– Bet you a cat you googled it. Latvian porn spam, that is. It’s the same thing as the French kind, but the soundtracks are funnier. Don’t ask me how I know. Bunk sees all.

  6. amyoops Says:

    Thanks Bunk

  7. planetross Says:

    thanks for the nod … I’d rather blink … but here it goes.

    1. I won a written contest about “Why I Love Canada” when I was 11. … and $25.

    2. I roll up my sleeves when drunk … and my shorts’ legs when very drunk.

    3. AC/DC rocks!

    4. I like to spit whether I’m angry or not.

    5. Breakfast is coffee and cigarettes … unless it’s a special occasion and then I’ll eat the big breakfast.

    6. I would have sex with Stevie Nicks if she asked me.

    7. Money means nothing, but if other people think it’s so great I’ll enjoy myself while I can.

    8. I’m a loner that likes other people for short periods of time.

    9. I’ll tell anything about myself to a perfect stranger, but if I knew you it wouldn’t be any different.

    10. I miss my NERF ball … big time!

  8. Bunk Strutts Says:

    plane– You could’ve saved some time by posting No.3 by itself.

  9. theliteraryhorse Says:

    On #7, you were just born cool, I knew it.
    On #10: perfect. It’s a great name. A celebrities’ moniker. Oh wait. You are. You just got an award!

    Thanks for sending it on to TLH…we’ve got plenty of sCrap over there.
    I’d type in a smiley face to show how pleased I am, but I don’t want to upset you after you’ve done such a nice thing for me!

  10. Bunk Strutts Says:

    thelit– Why would I be upset about a smiley face, especially from you? As for the award, it’s kind of like a head cold. You get over it and pass it on.

  11. theliteraryhorse Says:

    For some reason I thought you hated smiley faces. Since you don’t (wait for it)

  12. Bunk Strutts Says:

    thelit– I don’t hate smiley faces. It’s those damn emoticons that I can’t stand. =)
