The Great Eight

Tagged from the Schmoozer of Schmooze Mrs Chrissy

The rules:

1. Let others know who tagged you.

2. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.

3. Those who are tagged should post these rules and write their 8 random facts.

4. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them that they have been tagged.

Here we go!

1. I am an introvert at heart, but get a little extroverted in cyberspace.

2. I used to be a physical fitness nut ( weight lifting, boxing, martial arts,areobics, running in local 5K & 10K events).

3. Had a back injury back in 2002 and it along with old age (50 sucks), and sitting my fat arse at this computer has slowed me down. I'm built for comfort instead of speed now!LOL!!!

4. I split custody of my two wonderful mutts Abigail & Emily with my ex wife. We split in late 2003 and have been swapping the dogs every week since then.

5. I have an associates degree in Instumentation Technology that I have never used! All the mathmatics, algebra, and trig courses came in handy for my present job as a Lab Rat in a Quality Assurance Lab testing asphalt for the NCDOT.

6. I was a part time male stripper back in 1983 to 1986. I met my future wife at a tupperware party where I was the entertainment.

7. I was visited by agents from Homeland Security, The US Department of Defense, The FBI, The CID, and a few others back in 2003 for selling Military Body Armor on Ebay.

8. I get off probation at the end of this August 2007!

And since I'm such a rule breaking rebel without a cause.........I ain't gonna tag anyone. Besides......I don't have 8 people who read my blog? But consider yourself tagged if you are reading this!LOL

#6.....Started out as a dare for a young ladies bachelorette
party and kind of took it to the next level from there.
Did several bachelorette parties,Birthday parties, a tupperware party, and a very prominent doctor hired me for his wife's 40th birthday party.They were a wild couple. She did a funeral for his 40th. Made him get in the casket and all kinds of crazy stuff!

I had a friend or two that were interested and we made business cards. We did a gig at a local bar called Hurricane Hazel's.

An introverted stripper. Who'd a thunk it?

#7 I had been selling Body Armor on ebay since the summer of 2001, before the beltway sniper,and 9-11.
My dad got me started. Every body was selling it. We could find it at yard sales near the bases, and flea markets, and pawn shops, etc.
People were selling it all over Ebay, and we were too.
The Feds got interested and in 2003 did a sting called "Operation high bidder". I just happened to be one of the unlucky ones.
I had too many overseas buyers, and although I didn't ship out of the USA, they said it was a conspiracy to ship it out of the country. I'll do a post on it one day. It's gonna be a long post, and I like the short stuff.

#8 The Feds raided my house in May of 2003. It finally went to court in August 2003 in Philadelphia. I plead guilty to 2 counts of selling restricted government property (a misdemeanor) I got 3 years probation, and had to pay the federal agents back for about $1,100 worth of small arms protective inserts that they bought from me. My Philly Lawyer cost me about $2,500.
Operation High Bidder was nothing more than a political move for someone's political aspirations!

So, at the end of August, I'm gonna have a lot of held back ass whippins to dish out!LOL

Nah.....just kiddin, gettin too old for that shit!LOL

The only FBI agent I ever met was a trapeze artist from Texas. She was lovely.

So, we're in the same profession - exotic dance, not lab ratting...


Uncivil said...

Hey Puss

Yes I was a bit of a wild child in my younger days. I look back and I'm glad I did all that crazy stuff when I had the chance. Cause I'm such a boring old fart now! Te he he! Maybe I could get a gig dancing at a resthome nowadays!

Autumn's Mom said...

hahaha Time to dust off that ol G String Jimmy!! Whoop Whoop.

You crazy ass mo-fo.

Uncivil said...

Autumn's mom
I'm not worried about the dust.
I'd have to either do some serious shaving down there in the nether regions or start using Grecian Formula hair coloring on my pubes.

Gawd,,,,,can you imagine a bunch of grey hairs poking out of a damn G-String?!!!!!

Autumn's Mom said...

HAHAHAHAHA Seriously, I'm trying not to ;)

Diesel said...

Wow. I'm SO boring.

Uncivil said...

I'll swap lives with you any day.If your boring.........I don't even have a pulse!

Dan said...

I was a part time male stripper back in 1983 to 1986.

Part-time? Come on dude. You were a male stripper. You either do it or you don't. You can't minimize it by saying it was part-time. :)

Ms. Mamma said...

What Dan said! Oh, and Jimmy, you could wax it or just use some Nair...


Encore! Encore!

Uncivil said...

Dan, and Ms,mamma

I wasn't a full time male stripper? I had a day job just like all the other regular folks.

I would have starved to death if I had to rely on the stripping gigs for income.


I use a little Nair and still do serious trimming and shaving to this day.
Can you say....Naired Nutz! ?
Been there done that. Tried the wax too! Once was enough for that!

Enigma? Can't figure that comment out?

Damn, wear one little tiny G-String and your labeled a male stripper for life?

Chrissy121875 said...

LOL! OMG...You guys crack me up! Jimmy, waxing would have the more desired effect. Nair's not bad, but you won't be sans hair for too long that way. After a while, waxing doesn't even hurt. You get used to the pain. LOL! Not that I'd know or anything ;)

Good one!! LOL!

Steph said...

A crim AND a former stripper! It doesn't get much classier than that, I think I'm in love.

Uncivil said...

Chrissy, Steph

It's funny how my "Great Eight" snowballed into sex and crime?
