I’ve Been Tagged So, I’m It!

I’ve been tagged twice! Once by West End Singleton and again by Aliza’s Window. This might mean I have advertently (I just made that word up) tagged you! This game has rules…

1. You must post the rules.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
3. Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.
4. Let them know you’ve tagged them!

I have posted the rules, I have answered the questions, I have tagged eleven people and linked them and I have let them know. Not everyone likes to play games and even if they do, not everyone likes to be ‘forced’ into it by another blogger. With that being said, if you are listed below as being tagged by me and do not want to participate, feel free to bow out gracefully.

I am going to cheat with my questions. I am going to pick eleven questions based on questions that have already been asked in the two memes that I have hosted on Morning Erection. That means anyone who took part in either meme is automatically excluded from the group of eleven tagged. Sometimes cheating saves time and effort.

Here are the questions West End asked of me.

1. What is an interest you have that is not shared by many others?

I can’t think of anything that I am willing to post openly here. I’ve already told people far too much information about myself during the almost three years that I have been blogging. Don’t get me wrong. I do have an answer but I just need to keep this one private. No, I’m not a serial killer in case that crossed your mind. I did just recently add an Ask Me Anything page to the blog (inspired by emails I get and also this question), so I have promised to answer anything there. I also promised that you will not know if I am telling the truth or not! As predictable as people can be, the first question was a gutter question and is not safe for work or minors.

2. How do you decide what music to put on your iPod?

The question is, how do you know I have an iPod? Have you been spying on me? Do you work for some clandestine government agency? Do you think I download music illegally? Confess woman!

Seriously, whatever I think will help me while I run or workout is what I have been adding lately. I have a lot of early Prince, Madonna, Kelly Clarkson, Janet and Michael Jackson.

3. Can you describe your personal style in one sentence?

Yes I can*.

4. What is a quality in people that you can’t stand?

Revealing this answer always gets me in trouble with people especially my sister but I hate people who treat animals (pets) better than they do other people. I did not always feel this way but recently I have adopted this attitude from some friends I’ve met online.

5. What have you succeeded at despite others telling you that you couldn’t?

Keeping a blog going for more than a year!

6. What is a material possession or personal quality that you’ve kept from childhood and won’t be giving up?

My wisdom teeth.

7. What was the last book you couldn’t put down?

YOU: The Owner’s Manual: An Insider’s Guide to the Body that Will Make You Healthier and Younger by Drs. Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz.

8. What would you change about the world if you could?

Procrastination tendencies!

9. Who is Alan Rickman?

West End Singleton’s most favoritest person in the whole world.

10. Would you rather in never stopped raining or never stopped snowing in your city?

Can I go with neither. I hate cold weather so snow is out and I don’t want to live in a world that could end up being as bad as the movie Waterworld.

11. What do you want to ask me?

Where would your perfect vacation destination be?

*Back to question three. I don’t have a style and I guess by default, that is my style.


Here are the questions Aliza’s Window asked of me.

1.  Your nickname?

I can’t remember every having one that I liked so I plead the 5th.

2.  The wildest thing that you have ever done?

I once drove through several states and parts of Canada totally naked. It was fun and scary at the same time.

3.  Have you found true love in life?

Yes and I married her!

4.  Your special quality?

I’ve been told I am kind of like an empath (if that is a real thing). I can relate to and feel some of what a person is going through. It’s not sympathy but more like empathy and I think my strong imagination and creativity has a lot to do with it. Also people have been coming to me with their concerns and problems since I was very young. People don’t always take my advice, but the do ask for it.

5.  Your most clear memory of your childhood?

My youngest memory is going with my father to buy a new car. I don’t know how old I was but it was probably six or seven.

6.  The color which describes you best?

Gray. Please don’t expect an explanation because I do not have one. Sorry but gray is most assuredly my color.

7.  Your favorite movie?

Much too difficult a question to answer. The four movies that I have watched more often in my life than any other are The Sound of Music, The Ten Commandments, The Wizard of Oz and The Princess Bride. So for me, I guess I need to look at movies that start with ‘The”.

8.  One thing you would like to change about yourself?

Procrastination tendencies!

9.  A song which describes you?

Any song by Bob Dylan or James Brown where you can’t understand a word they are saying.

10.  Your favorite novel..?

Journey To The Center of the Earth by Jules Verne.

11.  Did you enjoy answering my questions?

I don’t think I would have done this and to do it twice unless it was something I enjoyed doing. Thank you both for including me.

Here are the questions I have for my eleven players.

1. If you were forced to change the name of your blog what would you change it to?

2. How would you spend today if you knew it was your last day to live?

3. What is you most guilty pleasure?

4. What is your most favorite smell?

5. You would you most want to interview on your blog?

6. What is your biggest pet peeve?

7. What is your favorite word in the English language?

8. What is your favorite word in another language?

9. What do your favorite pair of underwear look like?

10. Do you think the world is going to end this year?

11. If a movie was made based on your life, what actor/actress would play you?

Here are the eleven bloggers I have tagged.

Ebony Brown from Photos, Designs. Musings, Mai Mergili from Pencil Pillow, Janie Blim from Janie Has A Blog, Michelle from Careful Confessions, Prinsesa Musang from Prisesa’s Anatomy, Lester from Lester Pencilhands, Jakesprinter from Time After Time, Stacie Chadwick from Gemini Girl In A Random World, Sarah May from Sarsm’s Blog, Kara from Authenticity Is Liberation and MissElsie19 from Bowendiaries. I’m adding a twelfth to the list because I think she may have started all this and I know she likes it (Nenskei from The Way I Live Naturally) Additionally Off The Wall from Welcome to my Merry-Go-Round! was very disappointed that she was excluded. In a surprise strategy and hoping to win this game, I have added her as well. If there is anybody else who would like to play and was not tagged, consider this an invitation to play!


Have you ever wanted to be a superhero? If you just smiled and thought to yourself, Yes!, in two days, March 3rd, Thoughtsy from Thoughts Appear will be guest posting ans she will tell you exactly how to do so. Probably! Until such time, please visit her blog Thoughts Appear just to get a glimpse of her writing and her humor. Don’t forget to come back Saturday!

    I feel very wrong imagining you listening to your iPod (I have been spying on you) as you run naked. Hrm. Do you run naked? I’m guessing you don’t but the thought made me giggle anyway. Your peeve about people treating their pets better than people had me instantly sitting up straight to assess. I definitely treat my girls like they are everything to me because they are so I was worried. But on further consideration, the people who mean anything to me mean everything to me, I think I fall equally in love with everyone I find worthy of my love.

    If I had to change my blog’s name it would be: When Mayonnaise Happens (because sometimes it just does)

  2. #2 by Cherlyn on March 2, 2012 - 9:08 AM

    Nice answers Tom! So many people love grey (thats how we spells it up here :P)…My two best friends are all about the grey…I’m so bored looking at them lol.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • #3 by Tom Baker on March 2, 2012 - 9:10 AM

      I’m boring too! I will get that email out to you soon. I was thinking about another month of honesty. In all honesty I was thinking about it as a spark to get you blogging again. Any chance?

  3. #4 by lapiskamay on March 2, 2012 - 8:28 AM

    Hello Tom, I’ll be answering your question right here in this comment page., I hope you wont mind me breaking the tagging of others rule. This would be quick.

    1. If you were forced to change the name of your blog what would you change it to?
    Lourd of Pakensyits or the Imaginarium of Lapiskamay. I’m not really satisfied with the randomness of my blogs since working far from home. The thought and the quality are awful. I just quit my job. I’ll be branching out to an Art Blog and a Film Blog this year as one of my bucket list.

    2. How would you spend today if you knew it was your last day to live?
    I just want to travel home and get some sleep.

    3. What is you most guilty pleasure?
    watching Spartacus: Blood and Sands! that series is practically soft porn, gorefest, lovestory and a moving comic book rolled into one.

    4. What is your most favorite smell?
    Food when I’m hungry.

    5. You would you most want to interview on your blog?
    It’s either Lourd De Veyra (a multi talented crazy man) or Valerie Chua (a filipina artist of http://quietgirl.net/)

    6. What is your biggest pet peeve?
    what’s a pet peeve? sorry that’s really a new word to me. :)

    7. What is your favorite word in the English language?
    Thank You. Not all language has that word. If heartfelt it brings peace and goodwill.

    8. What is your favorite word in another language?
    La Vita Y Bella. Life is beautiful. that’s a very special word for me. thank you for asking that.

    9. What do your favorite pair of underwear look like?
    a Bench Boxer, I love sleeping wearing only those. :) hihi

    10. Do you think the world is going to end this year?
    I dont care. haha

    11. If a movie was made based on your life, what actor/actress would play you?
    a year 2000 Joaquin Phoenix! or Andrew Garfield?

    my answers are lousy, i cant bring the crazy joker sick ass in me today. I dunno this Friday seems to be so odd and uneventful.
    but still.. Thanks God its Friday!

    • #5 by Tom Baker on March 2, 2012 - 8:46 AM

      It is quite alright. I understand that some people have a standard for their blogs and posting your answers here is okay with me. By the way, thank you for being my 5000th comment!

      I hope you are able to find a new job quickly. Your answers are not lousy and a pet peeve is one thing that bothers you more than anything else. It bothers you so much the thought of it hangs around you like a pet does.

      • #6 by lapiskamay on March 2, 2012 - 8:53 AM

        wow, 5000 comments! Congratulations. It’s a testament that you’re a loved and fantastic blogger. That’s quite a milestone.

        • #7 by Tom Baker on March 2, 2012 - 8:55 AM

          Thank you but when you think that almost half of those comments are my reply, it’s really not that impressive!!

          • #8 by Off the Wall on March 2, 2012 - 4:50 PM

            5,000 comments? where do I hit the delete button? lol

  4. #9 by PM on March 1, 2012 - 10:47 PM

    i so enjoyed reading your answers. driving naked was awesome! :D you’re just so hot brother :P

    • #10 by Tom Baker on March 1, 2012 - 11:09 PM

      You are too generous with your words but if you think I’m hot, I’ll be hot! Driving naked was awesome. If you of legal age and little or no chance of getting caught – I recommend it!

      • #11 by PM on March 2, 2012 - 1:08 AM

        that’s the spirit! :D i wish i can but idk how to drive… yet!

  5. #12 by jlapis on March 1, 2012 - 9:54 PM

    Cool! Most especially like your answer to the “wildest thing ever done.” Bravo. :)

    • #13 by Tom Baker on March 1, 2012 - 11:13 PM

      It was an experience that’s for sure and I still do it from time to time during the summer but more so at night.

  6. #14 by WestSideSingleton on March 1, 2012 - 8:00 PM

    My perfect vacation destination depends on who I’m with, so I’m not sure. :)

    • #15 by Tom Baker on March 1, 2012 - 11:13 PM

      If it was with me. Where would you like to go?

      • #16 by WestSideSingleton on March 1, 2012 - 11:42 PM

        You seem intelligent, so probably New York for a play. I’m sure you’d have some interesting insights to offer.

  7. #17 by sarsm on March 1, 2012 - 9:31 AM

    Your answer to number 1 has intriguided me now Tom!! ;-)

    Great questions – thanks for tagging me!!

  8. #20 by Michelle on March 1, 2012 - 9:24 AM

    Ahh it’s been a while since I was tagged by another blogger, so thank you? I’ll answer your questions tomorrow since I have a personal one-post-per-day policy and I’ve already drafted a post to be published by tonight. Thank you, Tom. :)

    • #21 by Tom Baker on March 1, 2012 - 10:45 AM

      I like your one post per day rule. Keeps your priorities straight. I look forward to your responses Michelle.

  9. #22 by jakesprinter on March 1, 2012 - 8:22 AM

    Great Games :)

    • #23 by Tom Baker on March 1, 2012 - 11:32 PM

      Jake, I look forward for your responses!

  10. #24 by Wilhelmina Upton on March 1, 2012 - 4:50 AM

    I like your answer to #4 in the first round. I feel the same way and it’s not a popular point of view for a lot of people.

    • #25 by Tom Baker on March 1, 2012 - 7:30 AM

      Thank you Wilhelmina! I get so many evil looks when I express my opinion about this. Nice to know at least someone else share my thought.

      • #26 by Wilhelmina Upton on March 1, 2012 - 1:54 PM

        Hahaha, that’s why I’m shy to reveal this opinion most of the times

  11. #28 by Jackie Paulson on March 1, 2012 - 3:01 AM

    3 Years blogging-Keep it up~~~~

  12. #30 by Off the Wall on March 1, 2012 - 2:21 AM

    Rats! I was all giddy with excitement thinking I was picked for something, only to see my hopes dashed again!

    • #31 by Tom Baker on March 1, 2012 - 6:58 AM

      I have never been too good at math, so if you don’t mind I have added you to the mix. Consider yourself tagged and let’s keep the game going!
