Tagged with Eight Facts

I've been tagged by that wascally Spencer Carnage to play this "eight facts" meme going around. Here are the rules:
- Each player starts with eight random facts about themselves.
- Those who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight facts and post these rules.
- At the end of the post, I choose eight (no, four.) people to get tagged and list their names.

1. I've been to Gitmo: I used to be in the Navy, and we stopped at Guantanamo Bay several times. No prisons then, just heat, dust, and rust. Also got to spend a couple of weeks retrieving Cuban refugees from the ocean and returned them to Cuba. Surprisingly, not so fun.

2. I've geeked my boy: My son is only five, and he can rattle off Simpsons and Futurama quotes, list all of Iron Man's many armors, and knows more about Batman than Dan DiDio. What hath I wrought?

3. I'm a renaissance man: I'm a pretty decent artist who doesn't sketch nearly enough, and I've got a collection of 20-30 customized action figures. I won a randy Bowen Thor bust from Toyfare for one of my customs. Yay me.

4. My birthday is crowded: I share a birthday, Sept 8, with my father and my father-in-law.

5. I cannot type: Kind of a roadblock when it comes to blogging, yes?

6. I have a great marriage: Seems to be rare these days, but my wife and I get on splendidly.

7. I'm actually pretty handy: Home "ownership" has given me an opportunity to learn all sorts of fun things, from landscaping to fence repair to installing things.

8. I lean left: Politically, that is. I don't have, like, a shorter left leg or anything.

That's about as much as I wanna share. Everyone I can think of to tag has already been tagged, so how about...Siskoid, Vaklam, Johnny Zito, and lurkerwithout.

Brian, I'm so glad that you've passed on your comic book heritage. How else are we going to take over the world?

Brian Hughes said...

That's right... and denizens of the future can look forward to Again With the Comics: the Next Generation!

Spencer Carnage said...

Can we see pictures of your art and custom figures? That would be swell.

Brian Hughes said...

Sure, once I get time to take some pictures.
