Mr. Blunt Edges I think I Hate You

Sometime back, Mr. Blunt Edges tagged me and gave my blog an award. Thanks, I guess. Normally I don’t respond to these tags and this one has taken me a bit of time. Mainly I think these tags are boring but the biggest reason I haven’t done one, they seem like way to much work. I really can’t explain why Mr. Edges was able to manipulate me into doing this but I have decided to spend zero energy in trying to analyze his ploy further. I will do the sevenpart of the tag – but I gotta tell you, I am bit cranky about it.
Here goes… Seven things you don’t know about me.
1) Unlike Blunt Edges I am not an Atheist – Opps I guess maybe you knew that already about me. Even so, I am not changing my number one, it will remain.
2) Like Mr. Edges – I hate kids. I can remember worrying before I had kids if I would like them. Since then I have discovered for the most part kids are great once I bond with them or have some kind of connection. But, if you and your kid are in front of me in line at the grocery store I will pretty much hate you and your kid unless said kids are well behaved.
3) I am Blunt Edges 49th and maybe his 50th follower. Thank you – no applause is necessary.
4) I am a morning person – and have been known to jump up and down on the bed singing, “get up, get up, get out of your bed and open up your eyes and see the shinny skies.” All in an effort to wake up Mrs. Grayquill so we can play – FYI: this tactic has never been successful and I have not tried the tactic for years. Hmmm….maybe I give it another spin, who knows...maybe it will work out better for me after all these years. I wonder if I still have the talent of jumping and singing at the same time?
5) I am with Blunt Edges words – “can’t figure out why, the world’s crazy over Angelina Jolie. Ok, she acts well, but sexiest lady in the world? NO WAY!” BTW: Mr. Edges - The sexist woman would be Mrs. Grayquill of course.
6) I have a weird habit of NOT noticing minute details in movies like. For example, according to Blunt Edges, did you know that in Rang De Basanti (that must be a movie), Karan’s (played by Siddharth) character’s first and last line in the movie (oh, it is a movie) is ‘Nautanki Saala’ – - - Who would be so weird to notice such things? Could his initials be B.E.? I think us folks in the USA are missing some good movies.
7) I take complete credit for ‘converting’ Blunt Edges to writing with complete words on his blog; at least upon occasion. Yesiknowotherspliedtheirencouragementtohimbutwearenotcountingthoseeffortsforthisscenario.
Well now I have completed a tag and it will be a cold day in a very hot place before I ever do this again … Blunt Edges I think I hate you.

HAHAHA! I think I HEART you both! :D This was entertaining!
I do think you meant to put that your wife is 'sexiest' and not 'sexist', right? Perhaps she's both? Tee hee...
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and yours! Way to pass on the tag, Blunt Edges!

Karthik said...

Can't believe you did a tag.
I'm with you. They are very boring.
But it's always fun to read when others do, like I just did. :-)
Wish you a very happy new year! :-)

Sylvia K said...

Yep, I can't believe you did a tag either. I get them from time to time but I have let it be known that while I appreciate the thought, they take far too much time. But I did want to wish you much joy and love and peace and prosperity in the coming year. I'm glad we bumped into each other's blogs! Have a very Happy, Happy New Year!


Rose said...

I admire your resolve to do a tag. I can't stand them, for one of the reasons you mentioned. Too much work. I don't want to think that much for something trivial. Lol it was a fun read though.

Valerie said...

I popped in to wish you a Happy New Year. May your personal sun shine brightly in the coming months.

Arkansas Patti said...

Your answer to #5 guarantees you the Happiest of New Years and may even reward you for that bouncy bed thing.
Happy New Year to all of yours.

Pat said...

I'm so glad you made yourself do this was very good. I have to agree with you on #2. I'm not proud of it, since I should be overflowing with maternal feelings and all. I think my kids and grands are the bee's knees, but others not so much.
Have a great New Year Mr. Grayquil..may you and your family have days filled with those wonderful "grayquil moments" and may you continue to share them with all of us!
