I've been tagged...

OK, before I get into this tag stuff, let me just say that I was wrong about the release date of the Ghostbusters last week. It comes out this Wednesday, the 15th. Newsarama had posted the wrong info last week and, being the dullest knife in the drawer that I am, I bought it hook, line, and sinker.


It's come to my attention that I've been tagged in a blog game by my beloved Pat Gleason's wife, Emily. I'll be honest; normally, I would feign ignorance and move on with my life. But I'll be a sport and play along because I hold the entire clan Gleason in the absolute highest regard possible. So here you go, Emily...

1.Post the rules on your blog
2.Write 6 random things about yourself
3.Tag 6 people at the end of your post
4.If you are tagged, just do it, and pass the tag along!

1- The very last thing I do when I go to bed every night, after brushing and flossing and taking out my contact lenses, is check on Jack, give him a kiss on the forehead, and whisper "daddy loves you" in his sleeping ear.

2- Speaking of sleeping, while some people count sheep when they can't fall asleep at night, I often visualize myself punching a heavy bag and counting the punches/combinations until I doze off. I'm pretty sure that means I have ridiculous amounts of anger shoved down deep into my soul.

3- When writing, I check my email compulsively, every 10-15 minutes. I find the quick mental distraction actually helps me maintain my creative focus over the longer haul of a day's work. When inking, I check my email every 3 hours or so.

4- I've been training in jiu jitsu for about five years now. In that time, I've torn the ligaments in my left ankle, separated my rib cartilage three times, broken my left ring finger, have slightly cauliflowered my left ear, have been flash KO'd once by a wayward knee to the temple, and have sustained countless bruises and scrapes. And I love every minute of it!

5- When I see pictures of myself, especially as I'm getting older, I honestly feel I look like Frankenstein.

6- I will die with no regrets unless I severely mess this whole father thing up and scar my boy for life.

So there you have it. Six random things about me.

Now, according to the game, I get to tag six people. So...I choose Tom, Jamal, Karin Yamigawa-Madan, Chris Yeoman, The Gerb, and Malinda. Dawn, you're lucky you don't have a blog or I would have tagged you.

Over and out!

Ha that's cool and interesting info! I'll play a long, but I don't think anyone checks my blog and I don't even know if I know 6 people with a blog, so maybe I'm a bad choice :p

Thanks for being a good sport! I have often half-joked with Pat that we should arrange a marriage between your son and one of our girls, because with a name like his he has to turn out cool. :)

I totally did this over at my blog:

Though, to be fair, I don't think you can tag people within a different blogosphere.


It's the...second one down? I think?
