ME

Wanna play ‘Questions?’

Good!

I’ll start us off….

 

What’s your name and sign?

My name is Gwin and I’m a Capricorn.

What’s your nickname?

My Daddy calls me Doola Bug.

Nobody else calls me that though.

Only my Daddy.

Do you have a boyfriend or a girlfriend?

No, but I like a boy named—-

Actually, I like another boy named —- too.

I can’t tell you who they are because they might see this.

They don’t know.

I want it to stay a secret.

 

What’s your favorite color?

My favorite color is blue.

Do you have any sisters and brothers?

I have one little brother who gets on my nerves.

He always in the way!

Where are you from?

I’m from here.

I was born at the old University Hospital.

Do you have any pets?

I have two Dobermans, one name is Princess and one name is Demon.

 

Princess is the meanest.

Demon is the nicest.

I bet you didn’t guess that right!

Who is your favorite singer?

My favorite singer is Michael Jackson.

I want to marry him but Daddy say he too old.

Daddy say he’ll be using a walker by time I’m old enough to get married.

Oh and I like another singer name Prince.

He sing that song “Soft and Wet.”

And, he kinda look like a very pretty lady.

But not Michael, he look like a real man.

Oh yeah, there’s one more singer I gotta tell you about.

Her name is Teena Marie and I love her.

She white but she sound like she black.

Ain’t that crazy?

What do you like to do for fun?

I like to climb trees and look at the stars at night.

I also like to go to the golf course with my Daddy and eat sandwiches and chips at the clubhouse.

Sometimes, I like to walk the fairway, look at the trees and put my feet in the sand trap.

The only thing I don’t like is you have to be quiet when they trying to putt or T-off.

Anyway, I’ve seen lots of deer and jack-rabbits out on the course.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

I want to be a meteorologist.

It didn’t take me long to learn how to spell that word because spelling is one of my best subjects.

Did you know that a meteorologist is just a fancy word for weatherman?

To me, it sound like somebody who studies meteors.

But it’s not.

I know all about the topic because I looked it up in an encyclopedia.

And because of that I already know how to look at the clouds and tell what the weather gonna be.

What’s your favorite cartoon?

My favorite cartoons are Looney Tunes, The Peanuts and I love Scooby Doo.

Oh yeah and I like Pink Panther, The Archies, Sabrina the Good Witch and I like Felix the Cat.

What’s your favorite food?

My favorite food is pizza, hamburgers, tacos and I like popcorn shrimp.

When we go to Red Lobster my Mama let me have a Sprite with cherries and an orange slice.

Sometimes they put a little umbrella in it.

It look like a grown person drink.

One time Daddy let me drink some coke he had in a cup.

Only it wasn’t just coke.

It was something else in it.

It tasted terrible so I spit it out.

He started laughing real loud.

Mama don’t know nothing about that.

Who is your favorite teacher?

My favorite teacher is Mrs. Scott.

She got the longest hair you ever saw but she keeps it back in a bun.

What are your favorite TV shows?

I like to watch Flip Wilson, Sanford and Son, Bewitched, Jeannie, and I like to watch Wonder woman, Bionic woman, Electric Company, Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers.

Oh and I like Mighty Isis and Shazaam.

Sometimes Mama let me stay up and watch Carol Burnett.

Harvey Korman is my favorite one!

I like when he dress up like a lady named Mother Marcus!

If it ain’t nothing else on TV, I’ll watch Hee-Haw.

Here’s a secret:  I like to watch The Lawrence Welk Show.

Don’t tell nobody about that.

Oh…

Last night we watched the Great Pumpkin!

I love Charlie Brown.

But I can’t stand Lucy.

Do you play a instrument?

I play violin.

I made it as an alternate for all county Orchestra.

At the audition, I forget the rosin for my bow so my bow kept sliding off the string sounding like a cat.

That was dumb.

Uh oh…

I gotta go because me and my brother have to rake the grass so we can go to the fair tonight.

It was nice to meet you.

Don’t forget to write me back and tell me all your answers to my questions.

Before you go I want you to hear some of my favorite Michael Jackson songs:

And I like this one too:

Five Facts

 

Charlie Brown for post on 2-23-2016
My Friend Charlie

I hate to admit it, but I love poking around on the internet. I usually like searching for ‘how to’ articles; best believe you can learn how to clone a wombat if you troll the interwebs long enough.

At any rate, every so often, while surfing the net, I’ll find myself landing on one of those ‘five facts’ articles.  You know the ones where the writer reveals new and intriguing tidbits about someone famous. Well I don’t know about you, but whenever I read one of those things, I have to catch myself before I start following the article’s hyperlinks to virtual web hell.

Either way, ‘five facts’ articles are usually quite interesting; therefore, I have decided to post my own version here.  As a bonus, I have also included a few applicable lessons with each fact.  Rest assured my loves, you don’t need to worry about getting lost as there are no hyperlinks to maneuver–embedded or otherwise. I simply refuse to connect you to the history of all of my years, my tears and my fears (Nod to Jerome from Martin Lawrence). Trust me; you don’t want to go there! So, without further delay, I present:

Five Facts about Me

I used to date Ernie from Sesame Street

Okay, let me explain! When I was in second grade, Ernie and his friend Bert came to our school to perform.  During the performance, Ernie revealed that his girlfriend, Gwin, was in the audience and he asked that I  stand up.  When I stood up you could hear all of the kids yell “Ooh-wee, Gwin goes with Ernie!” Yeah I was completely surprised myself.  Suffice it to say I was the envy of the playground set! Sorry, but out of respect for Ernie I cannot comment any further on our relationship.

 Lesson:  Expect good things to catch you by surprise!

I once was a budding violinist

As a youngster, I took violin lessons for about two years and I briefly played in the All County Orchestra.  However, being the wise young lady that I was, I quit playing violin so that I could be a majorette in the marching band. Who says that I didn’t have my priorities straight?

Friends, I know that there are thousands of professional violinists in this world but I got no idea how many professional majorettes there are. Imagine the doors that might have opened for me had I continued playing violin?

 Lesson: Don’t quit shit so fast; you never know where it could lead. Other lesson, there are no mistakes- so let it go Gwin!

 I am a 1st Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo

When I was in my early 30’s, my son and I became 1st Degree Black Belts in Taekwondo. Friends, from the moment that I put on the White Belt, I knew that I would become a Black Belt. You see, by now, I had learned my lesson on quitting and I was hell-bent on sticking with it!  By the way, the 1st Degree Black Belt is really just the beginning of another longer journey.  I didn’t quit, I simply opted not to continue 🙂

Lesson:  Even you can break a board if you practice and do not QUIT!

I am addicted to 1960’s and 1970’s Sitcoms and Cartoons

I can spend hours on end watching “Bewitched,” “Twilight Zone,” “The Peanuts,” and “Sanford and Son.”  Please don’t challenge my knowledge on any of these because it could get ugly!  By the way, as a die-hard Bewitched fan, I must affirm my devotion to the original Darrin, Dick York!

In addition, please note that if it is Halloween, I AM watching Linus as he waits in vain for that damn Great Pumpkin! Like Sally, I plan to wait with him until one of us dies!

As for the Twilight Zone, Mr. Garrity and the Graves is a MUST!

Lesson:  Fred G. Sanford is a freaking genius!  Listen to him carefully and learn!

I make a mean chili!

There’s no way that I can convince you that this is true so you’ll just have to come to dinner and see for yourself.  By the way, if you do come over, BRING COCKTAILS!

Lesson:  Always bring something good to the table!

I hope that you have enjoyed reading five facts about me.  Why don’t you tell me something interesting about you?
