Meme's Abound (AKA I'm the Sicko?)

Oh dear Haggis, be thankful I like dogs. I'm The Sicko, eh? Okay, I guess that fits, lol. ;-)

So I was meme slapped by Haggis, hell, it's better that than having to eat haggis. I mean, do you have any idea what's in that stuff? Anyway, I digress. A meme is basically a mini-interview, started by someone who picks a set number of people to answer a group of questions, those people copy the questions to their blog and pass them on to the set number (in this case 3) of waiting victims, who pass it along, and so-forth.

So here we go:

1. If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Why?
Ten years ago I would have answered differently, but now I'd like to have Wolverine's adamantium metal skeleton and ability to heal. Anybody who knows me will understand why.

2. Who is your style icon?
For dress I wear jeans and a lot of button-up shirts, and have long hair. So I guess you could picture Sam from Supernatural, just much shorter...

Writing, well I have often said if you put Dean Koontz, Stephen King, and James Patterson in a blender I'm what would come out. I don't write like any of them, but their influence is there.

3. What is your favorite quote?
"I'll get all the sleep I need when I'm dead." Sam Eliiot in Roadhouse.

4. What is the best compliment you've ever received?
"You're a good father." Is there really a better one?

5. What playlist/CD is in your CD Player/iPod right now?
Iron Maiden, Avenged Sevenfold, old Metallica, Led Zeppelin, and Jorn (Google him).

6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
It's 4 AM right now... what do you think? I usually stay up all night, watch the baby until my wife gets home, napping when she naps, then sleep a few hours. A couple times a week I sleep more normal hours to catch up. It works for me, even if it sounds weird. I can't write during the day, no matter how hard I try. So I guess I'm a night owl by nature. Can't fight who we are. *shrug*

7. Do you prefer dogs or cats?
Dogs. I'm allergic to both dogs and cats, but much less to dogs. We recently rescued a beagle who had been abused. It's been hard, she's a little skittish, but the kids love her and she's great with them. And I guess beagles give off less dander, because she hasn't affected my allergies.

8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
I guess it means this is my spot to be myself. If I want to be funny, I can. If I want to say what's in my heart, or vent, or be weird. That's what a blog is all about, right?

My 3 victims:
Gini Koch


  1. Excellent post, Steve. I especially liked your response to the "compliment" question, and I couldn't agree more with your answer.

    Oh. And you had to be "The Sicko" because everybody else I chose began with "S." :)

  2. I accept the challenge (yeah, it's never a problem for me to run the yap). Will probably put this up over the, you know, stay alert and all that. LOL

    Great answers, btw!

  3. I just did mine.

    Love that you rescued the Beagle. :)

  4. My Meme's up, Steve:

    Thanks for doing this, it was fun!

  5. Thanks girls, aaaannddd of course, Haggis :D

    Sorry it took so long to get back, too friggin' much pain to do much of anything. Haggis, my dear undead puppeh, I don't mind being The Sicko, I finally have a nickname ;-)
