Tag, I'm "It"...

Jeez, I'm starting to get bruises! I've been tagged not once, but twice. For both friends who've tagged me: thanks for thinking about me, but please don't take it wrong if I don't tag anyone else (my other friends are very busy these days saving whales, electing a Democrat, getting drunk, and other important stuff; I, on the other hand, having no principles whatsoever, have all kinds of free time!).

First of all, Taffiny at to taste a peach has honored me with the "Colors of Friendship Badge". Look!

Thanks, Taff, I really am happy that you consider me worthy of your friendship. (When you get that "Japan" novel published, though, I want a mention in the acknowledgments! And some publisher freebies when you hit Japan to promote it!)

The next one requires a bit more than humble thanks. Absolute Vanilla's alien chicken friend, Atyallah--by the way, AV, have you ever heard of yaki tori? The Japanese would just love to meat, er, meet Atyllah--has tasked me with :

* link to the person who tagged you (done!)
* post the rules on your blog (done!)
* share six non-important things/ habits/ quirks about yourself (to follow!)
* tag at least 3 people at the end of the post and link to their blogs (sorry!)
* let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog (ditto!)

Six "non-important things/ habits/ quirks" about me (Kyklops):

1. I don't believe in God, but I religiously do nothing on Sundays. Actually, I stole that from an old Elvin Bishop tune. Surely something to strive for, though... (What, that's important? Jeesh, get a life!)

2. My favorite hockey team is the Boston Bruins... (yeah, yeah, OK already: that one is important; fucking sue me, already...)

3. Sometimes I kinda... you know, wish I were Captain Kirk...

4. My favorite food is pizza. Before moving to Japan I would have said any pizza. Actually, I don't much care for pizza anymore...

5. I'm not important. Neither are you. Neither is anyone else. Whoopee!!

6. I drink about 5 gallons of coffee a day. And about 2 gallons of beer on Friday nights...


  1. What, you mean you're not Captain Kirk. Well, damn!

    Atyllah says to tell you she has indeed heard of yakitori - and she advises that Granny Were is dreaming up her own version of it - but it doesn't involve chickens... Don't say you've haven't been warned!


  2. Not being Kirk is just about too unbearable to live with... I look forward to being skewered by our avian alien overlords!

  3. What, you don't like corn on your pizza?

    Answering my silly questions about J via email totally makes you like friend worthy and stuff. Acknowledgment, freebies? If the publish thing would ever like happen, then sure dude.

  4. Taff,
    If it were only corn, life would be grand. I was only kidding about the other stuff!
