I'm It

Beth said tag and so I gave it the old Nike try.

Ten Years Ago - I was dreaming of this day, the day I got to answer questions about what I was doing ten years ago. I can barely remember ten minutes ago so I'm lucky that this one worked out.

Five Years Ago - Also Sprach Zarathustra played over and over in my head to the point of distraction.

One Year Ago - I was still shaking and turning grey while my body began a detox from nicotine. Duskily complected = Very uncool.

Is your body free from piercings otherwise?

A. Estella Sassypants said...

Damn. I love men with bells on their toes.

mellowlee said...

what you've got on right now...well I should hope not! These are MY pink pajamas!

chelene said...

No bells on your toes? What about rings on your fingers...is that okay? And you would rock an ascot. You might want to reconsider on that one, Dale.

Dale said...

I'd say I have a piercing stare but that's not even really true. No extra holes in my body CP.

I'm always tripping over them Andi so I finally just took them off. Sorry to disappoint.

Whew! Glad I called that one Lee. Not my style.

Rings are okay or maybe a ring Chelene. Are you calling me a stuffy old gasbag? Hmmm.

justacoolcat said...

Without bells on your toes and an Ascott my image of you is totally shattered.

justacoolcat said...

ps, Chel is the devil

Angela said...

Your list of snacks made me instantly hungry. Where do you find decent fried clams in this city?

chelene said...

Coolcat, I'm the devil? Did I steal your lines again??? :)

Also, Dale, I wasn't calling you a "stuffy old gasbag"...but I will if that's what you're into. ;)

Dale said...

Glad I shattered the image CC, doesn't sound like me at all. Chel is the devil!

Hey Angela you super freak - the key to remember when looking for decent fried clams is this city is that there aren't any. Not that I've found anyway.

Chel, you're not the devil! I guess I was thinking of my old English professor and his ascot and what a windbag he was. Then I looked this up only to find that they say stuff the ascot into the shirt. See? Stuffy.

jin said...

*jin breathes a sigh of relief*
I'm SO glad you wouldn't wear what I'm wearing right now...& before you think up a smart come-back about ticks...think again dale, remember that I can influence your television.

Dale said...

I bow to your power Jin.

justacoolcat said...

If someone here can influeunce tv please tell me who win this years Super Bowl and Stanley Cup. I'm not a gambler, but I could be . . .

Dale said...

Be careful Justa, Jin's got untold powers and also, cake.

jin said...

.....and I know how to use them.....

;-)

justacoolcat said...

I know I should be careful, but I love cake . . .

mellowlee said...

That reminds me...
What do slinkies have in common with people you hate?

Dale said...

I dunno Lee, what?

mellowlee said...

It's fun to watch them fall down the stairs ;) *insane giggling*

Dale said...

That's funny and insane Lee! Very cute.

mellowlee said...

Glad you liked it...I only know about 3 or 4 jokes by heart :D

Shroom-Monkey said...

Ohh I loved Square Pegs...

The only song I know all the words to is Tempted by Squeeze.. I just love that song like crazy...

Dale said...

So you're the second person I know that's even heard of Square Pegs. Maybe you're not so bad after all. Tempted is a great song too.

Tanya Espanya said...

Who did you tag?

Beth said...

Dammit! I bought you a pair of those rubbery trendy cloggy gardening shoes here in San Francisco. Now what am I gonna do with a large pair of lime-green gardening shoes ...?

Dale said...

Tanya, I'm too lazy a bastard to tag anyone. Shouldn't you be out buying me presents before you get back home?

Beth! You can give them to Tanya, I think she's in San Fran right now. And trust me, she'd wear them, even if they are size 11.

Shroom-Monkey said...

How has no one heard of that show??? Sarah Jessica Parker before she was Carrie... and didn't the Waitress's do the theme song, I loved them when they did, "I know what boys want"

Not soo bad after all, did you ever have your doubts???

C'mon now.........

Dale said...

Yes, you're right Shroom. The Waitresses, SJP, Tracy Nelson as Jennifer Denuccio and just some funny funny stuff.

Actually no doubts at all. I knew you were a Monkey of great quality and substance. And stuff.

X. Dell said...

I remember Square Pegs, I think. That had a very young Tracey Nelson as an almost indecipherable valley girl, if I recall.

Dale said...

You're right X. Dell. You can be in the club too. The dues are payable in American though.

X. Dell said...

Just watched the Catherine Tate clip. You guys have better TV than we do. That was great.

Dale said...

It's actually from the BBC X. Dell. You can You Tube more of that character or other Catherine Tate characters.

gizmorox said...

I love that the ascot site has a video demonstration. That's classy.

Dale said...

Classy with a capital Chelene. She mentioned ascots over at her site too and then said Everytime someone says ascot an angel gets his wingtips. Still laughing over that.

Bored Dominatrix said...

Personally I would pay at least a dollar fifty for the sight of you in an ascot.

Anomie-Atlanta said...

Seriously, there are few things sexier than a man with nipple rings...unless of course his breasts are bigger than mine.
Don't close your mind to the possiblities of piercings Dale. :)

Dale said...

If I had one, I might even take you up on that Bored D. You know how much it costs to make lunch for someone like me?

Yeah Anomie-A, I can see where it might lose a little of the sexy factor if they were bigger than yours. I never say never but I might say probably not. I'm still wondering whether Coaster P. was for or against.
