About Who? An Addendum to the About Me Page

It’s kind of interesting to me that one of the most popular entries here is actually my “About Me” page. It was one of those 100 things about me posts that you’re supposed to do after you’ve made your first 100 posts. I got to thinking about it, especially after a couple of people said it was the funniest “about me” they had read in a long time or ever. I’m not sure exactly how I feel about that, but the list was done kind of tongue-in-cheek and it was intended to be both informative and humorous. Then I began to wonder, has anything changed? If I had to do it over again, what would change? I mean, this is post number 573 and when I hit post 600 do I have to add 500 more things? Or when I had hit post 500, was I supposed to stop and add 400 more things? Believe me. Please take my word. You do not want to know 600 things about me. Besides, if I add more archival stuff into the blog on the dates it was supposed to be in there, the numbers would be off. In fact, that original entry was number 118.

Now, all of that out of the way, how accurate is that list? I mean, it was originally done in 2005 and re-posted when I switched my blogging software back to WordPress. So, I found a couple of things that were kind of outdated, but nothing real extraordinary.

On question 4 I would have to add Civilization 6, even though I don’t play very much at all anymore.

On questions 10 & 11 I would have to say that while I don’t subscribe to any newspapers any longer I do subscribe to 2 comics pages, Comics Kingdom and Gocomics.

Question 19 doesn’t require an asterisk. I have always loved German Potato Salad (the way my Grandma and Aunts made it).

Question 58 is kind of problematic because computers come and go.

For question 83, Charlie Daniels’ blog is at now.

And that’s about all the changes in over 15 years. Does that mean I’m consistent or boring? Or both?

    On the About Me page, I added a comments section. I didn’t know there was not one until just recently.
    Also, in my addendum I missed:
    number 43, I have read all SIX books in the H2G2 trilogy and yes, I think the sixth is canon.
    number 92, I would still shoot a pink gun.
    number 94 is like number 58 in that cars come and go, too.

    It means you’re dependable and still live tongue in cheek. Faithful isn’t boring its unique and rather rare.
