Get the suicide hotline number ready, it's another segment of dull facts about Dave

31- I am more able to hit the tricky shots in pool than the straight-on shots. I don’t take time to really aim on any my pool shots, for some reason.

32- I skydived from a height of 14,000 feet in 1995 with a buddy. The only jump suit they had in my size was pink and blue. I added a third color on the way down.

33- I am a Taurus. However I am not stubborn, don’t knock things over in a china shop, and have never charged full-speed at a red piece of cloth. Okay, maybe I’m stubborn. And there was that one time with the red cloth…

34- If I ever entrust you with information about my income or other similar personal information, you are obviously a VERY close friend. I am a very private person.

35- I have one pair of tennis shoes. I don’t understand the significance of that fact, but maybe it means something.

36- Throughout my single life, I dated mostly brunettes. Yet most of the famous women I find attractive are blonde.

37- I have a fascination with watches. I have a Breitling I bought in the Virgin Islands that has almost doubled in value because it is one of only a thousand made.

38- I tend toward the sarcastic side with my sense of humor. Sometimes people don’t realize when I’m joking… must be the poker face.

39- I have a thing about crabgrass. It’s an anxious time of year for me, hoping the timing of my pre-emergence was spot-on.

40- I never understood mincemeat pie. I don’t even know what it is. I’m comfortable not knowing.

Just felt the urge to compare on a few items here:
31) I've seen you shoot the "straight shots" in pool. Some how they seem to magically become "tricky" shots and go in....what's up with that???

32) I've NEVER worn a pink jump suit but have no doubt that you looked just "darling"!

34) Frankly...I don't give a damn how much money you make! You do what you do and I do what I do...somebody get me a beer!!!

35) I'd need an hour to count how many pair of "tennis" shoes I have. Ironically, (yes Dave, I did say "ironic") I only have one pair that I play TENNIS in. I'm sure that is what you meant! I do have 7 or 8 pair of Western boots (the term "cowboy boots" just seems to prject a far too steriotypical image). I don't know the significance of that either, but I don't generally lose sleep wonderingif it means something.

36) To the best of my recollection, I have always been attracted strictly to blondes. to date, the most natural, satisfying, and intense relationship that I've ever had, has been with the one brunette that been involved with. Again, what's up with that???

37) You didn't mention the watches that I gave you for your birthday last year...I'm hurt!!! None of your fancy ones lets you roll thoses little ball bearings into the little holes like the little orange and green watches that I got for you!!!

38) Sarcasim...what's that???

From one Taurus to another, happy birthday Dave! Mine's coming in a couple of weeks. The big 5 0. As my name would indicate, I've earned every gray strand on my head and every wrinkle on my face.
I really enjoy your lists. It's funny how we don't know a person (in full) from Adam, yet we can be so intrigued by little facts about them.
(by the way, I do kinda migrate toward red dresses for some reason)
Fun post! Now go do something special for yourself.

All shots in pool have become tricky for me with age and the fact I am going blind, but I know that is not your excuse :)

Hmmmmm no mention of redheads here...

Just one pair of pair of tennies here too, new fashion statement?

Watches? What are those?

phoenix said...

Oh Yea

Gary, coming from a person who routinely kicks my ASS at pool, I'll take that as a compliment. And about those watches, if you'll look in my watch case, you'll see how much I like the watches you gave me.

Carol, thanks for the wishes. We Tauri must remind ourselves we're special people... and 1/12 of the population!

Phoenix, it's ironic that redheads tend to get forgotten for some reason, yet they tend to stand out from the rest of the crowd. My Mom is a redhead, my Grandmother was a redhead - and I LOVE redheads. I have only dated one, though. And your singing is absolutely marvelous... thank you so much.

But mincemeat pie is the most fantabulous ever! The real stuff that is. The "real stuff" is pie made of shredded venison. The imitation stuff is rotgut city.

You sarcastic? I would have never guessed...

I love the skydiving story. I can't believe you did such a thing voluntarily. It would take a judge with a creative sense of sentencing to ever get me out of a plane at 14,000 feet.

Blondes like guys named Dave.
