I though that if I had it I could not get it again…

But I guess not. I have been tagged by Static to do another meme, this one seems suspect though and very similar to this one. Since I am a good sport and don’t have time to rant today lets have some fun.

Four jobs I wish I had the capabilities of:

1. Magician – More David Copperfield than Siegfried and Roy of course. It is not that they are not talented or that they seem to “love” their animals, they just look like live mummies, freaky pair of farkers.
2. UFC Fighter – It takes some guts to go all out and just step in there with no fear.
3. Crabber – If you have not seen the Discovery Channel’s the deadliest catch, check it out. Those guys truly earn their living by putting their life on the line.
4. CIA Agent – Heck yea, I would love to be a spy.

Four names I wish I had other than my own:

1. Sebastian – Wanted to name one of my kids that before one of my cousin’s stole the name.
2. Carlos – I have liked all the Carlos I have met, but would not want to be called Charlie.
3. Antonio – Love my Granpa’s name.
4. Logtar – Not sure if woman think about this more than man, but this is all I could come up with.

Four of my favourite actresses:

1. Charlize Theron – She has a lot of range as an actress. (Devils Advocate, Monster)
2. Carrie-Anne Moss – There has not been another woman in film that has kicked more ass than Trinity.
3. Linda Hamilton – Before Trinity there was Sarah Connor. She not only transforms during ther first Terminator from damsel in distress to action hero, she totally kicks ass on Terminator II.
4. Demi Moore – I just saw G.I. Jane the other day, she played an awesome role.

Four songs I could listen to over and over again:

1. The Game – Disturbed
2. Tangled – Maroon Five
3. La Camisa Negra – Juanes
4. Sin Sentimiento – Grupo Niche

Four TV shows I love to watch:

1. CSI
2. Miami Ink
3. The Biggest Loser
4. Survivor

Four places I would like to go to on vacation:

1. Hawaii
2. Barcelona
3. Thailand
4. Tierra del Fuego

Four of my favourite cuisines:

1. Colombian
2. Asian (Korean, Chinesse, Thai, Japanesse)
3. Italian
4. Mexican

Four places I wish I was right now:

1. Chicago
2. Cali, Colombia
3. Shaolin Temple
4. Outer Space

Ok now we need to tag Seven People… maybe I should tag some new unsuspecting people… but I also want to know the answers of some of the usual suspects. What to do, what to do?

Tagging – TheGuru, TheRedHaired8, Dan Lacher, Kamilo, Kafre, Juan Falla, Lenfu, Carlos, Pol, EvilAtari, Trunk, Osbasso, Hit Coffee, Michael and Barry.

Hardware Challenged!

Yes, I admit it, even though I can probably name every product in RadioShack and tell you what it does (it helps that I worked there before and that I am a total geek.) If you take me to (insert name here) hardware, I am totally lost. I am no Tim “The Tool man” Taylor. The only think that kind of helps me save some face is that I do know hot to work on motorcycles and I did replace an alternator on an older car before. I am also very capable with wiring and did work as an electrician’s helper during a summer. Besides that I suck at painting, carpentry, plumbing and anything else that has to do with being a handy man.

I admit it, I have a kind of jealousy and dislike for man that can look at a bolt and say, that is a 3/4 inch reverse thread whatever else. I would be the kind of guy that walks into the hardware store and says, I need a bolt and a nut, and when the attendant asks me what size I will turn into a mime. Granted, I do have the excuse that the English system is messed up and that I grew up with the metric, but in reality I am totally challenged when it comes to hardware.

During the last move, I have lost a lot of the hardware for the furniture and there are two big pieces that we cannot put back together until (a) find the hardware or (b) I go to the hardware store and get new nuts and bolts. To complicate things, I misplaced the charger for my power drill so I will be doing this by hand. I know, sad isn’t, I am dreading turning screws…

If by hardware I was talking about the jumpers on a hard drive to make it master or slave we would be all good. If you wanted me to rewire your whole house, I probably could. I knew there was a reason that Tim Allen’s laugher (Ho, Ho, Ho) was like nails to chalkboard to me, and that is because I could never be the tool man he was, at least on that show. I still think that Tim Allen is a tool.

HNT – Belly

You have been warned. Clicking on the link for this picture might permanently scar you mentally to the point of no return… so proceed with caution when you look at my belly.

I guess today is also the Anniversary of HNT (Half Nekked Thrusday) so Obasso is asking for the very first entry… here is mine.
