A Dozen

1. I have never watched an episode of “MacGyver.”

2. At the age of 13, I drank too much champagne while flying cross-country (thanks to a gullible Delta stewardess) and fell asleep in the Atlanta airport, missing my next flight.

3. I do not vegetables – except an occasional bit of corn. Unless potatoes count as vegetables, in which case I eat a LOT of vegetables.

4. I attended 11 schools in 12 years, thanks to being an Air Force brat.

5. I have one brother and one sister (from the same parents) – this is us circa 1971.

6. I served 20 years in the Air Force. In fact, today (November 23rd) marks the day in 1987 when I went to basic training. Here’s a pic from 1994, when I was stationed at Onizuka Air Force Station in the south Bay Area (I’m the one in BDUs):

7. I arrived in Montana in July 2002 and knew within a few days that I had finally found home.

8. I met the girl of my dreams in 2007, and we got married just a few months ago. Piano Pat signed our wedding guest book!

9. I have been obsessed with news since 1986, and can’t believe that I am fortunate enough to have found my dream job working in a new organization.

10. I have a master’s degree in healthcare administration from Baylor University.

11. I think that ducks and geese are among the most whimsical of creatures.

12. I love the “doge” meme so much that I created a pic using our ceremonial wedding certificate (that was created by the mucho-talented Jason, the husband of our oh-so-awesome wedding officiant, Pastor K. Dawn).

Bobcat vs. Grizzly Bear: The Bloodening

AJ – he of the most-awesomest graphics skillz – created a fun pic to celebrate the upcoming Cat/Griz football game.

He noted: “While my loyalties are not particularly sharp, having attended both schools, I couldn’t resist adding some fuel to the fire.”

You all know that I’m not a football fan, so the annual game is a snoozer for me, but I do kind of enjoy the passionate rivalry and good-natured jokes that are passed around.

Although I will admit – if a gun was held to my head and I was forced to cheer for one or the other, I would have to pick the MSU Bobcats because: my wife is an MSU alum; I like Bozeman more than I like Missoula; and reasons.

Anyway: here is AJ’s pic, which I love…now let’s count down the number of days it takes the SyFy channel to turn this into a Saturday night movie. And yes, the title of this post is my proposal for the title of the movie.

And in light of my recent doge obsession…I just had to:
