25 Things About Me - Dr Zibbs From That Blue Yak.





OK, everyone does this but here are 25 things about me.

1. When I'm alone, I talk and sing to myself. If I recorded it, you'd probably be pretty entertained.

2. I have ADHD.

3. I love taking baths. As long as I have a few beers to drink and something to read in there. As a matter of fact, I had one tonight then went to a neighbor's house with my wife to watch Slumdog Millionaire.

4. I've plucked a chicken.

5. One time two older kids tied me to a tree using just my legs.

6. I have two kids. A boy -15 and a girl - 12.

7. Despite what you read on my blog, if you met me in real life you'd be surprised that I'm pretty normal.

8. I collect Zippo lighters. And I used to collect Homies, Simpson stuff, old advertising stuff, ashtrays, pez and belt buckles. Except for the Zippos - all of the other stuff is in my attic.

9. I can ride a unicycle.

10. I'm terrible at math. Sometimes I use my fingers to add.

11. I've been to China. Deep, deep into China where white people have never been. (I'll write a post about this soon).

12. I have a birthmark on my knee that looks like the Caspian Sea.

13. I did a duathalon a few years ago. 5k run - 10 mile bike - 5k run.

14. I used to do stand up comedy.

15. I've developed over 3000 products including Jack Daniels, Disney and Warner Brothers products.

16. I rarely lie.

17. Some of my favorite foods are crawfish, ribeye steaks and pistachios.

18. I have pictures of myself with many celebs including Sally Jessie Raphael.

19. I just remembered the other week that I have a list of every woman that I've ever been with - with details. I hid the list somewhere years ago so I'd have it when I'm old and I'm now trying to remember where it is.

20. When traveling, one of my favorite things is going to bars and meeting strangers. No, not just women. Just interesting people. I wish had started a travel journal years ago.

21. I have a phobia of retarded people. Especially when they see me and approach me.

22. I had a dream I was eating a giant marshmallow and when I woke up my pillow was gone. Naaaaaaaa. Naaaaaaa. Naaaaaaa.

23. I used to go to England all the time for work and sadly, every picture I took was lost. Stupid computers.

24. I hate rap but I can make up freestyle rhymes/rap in a flash.

25. If I could do anything for a job I would write for a sketch comedy show.

I was just singing to myself and when I read your #1 item I got embarrassed and stopped.

B.E. Earl said...

I love pistachios.

Kate said...

Sally Jessie Raphael! You have LIVED! :)

Greta said...

How come we never see these so called pictures of yourself?

Yeah. That's right. I think you're a liar Zibbs. I said it.

Greta said...

And number 20 is awesome. We have this in common.

Sassy Britches said...

I will never be able to take a bath and not think of this. But I'm still super glad you shared!

Cameron said...

Love it.....I rarely lie. Or, you can re-phrase that to say, "For the most part, I tell the truth."

Either way. :)

Chele said...

next time you talk and sing to yourself, record it on your snapvine..

Rachel said...

I'm going to take a picture of my birthmark and see if we have twin birthmarks on our knees.

Vic said...

Were you a very tall child? Still puzzling out the "tied to a tree with your legs" item. Pretty impressive,actually!

words words words said...

I want to hear about China. And we have the exact same dream job.

Beverly Hamilton Wenham said...

Uhmmmm!

slopmaster said...

You tool! I didn't think, you of all people would fall to this silly 25 questions thing. I'm disappointed Dr.

Scope said...

I think I'd like to see some more of the sketch scripts here on the pages of "That Blue Yak."

Thanks for the look behind the curtain.

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

That's a pretty interesting look inside the blogger's studio!

buffalodick said...

The old Indian "tie you to the tree with your own legs" trick? I remember that one!

Sass said...

I think I heart you more now.

I have this weird ability to make up freestyle rhymes at the drop of a hat, as well.

And I love number 20. It's what makes life so interesting.

Great list, Zibbsy.

Some Guy said...

Great list, Zibbs! I'm with you on #20 too.

donp said...

alexa - cleveland's a plum said...

congratulations, your list of 25 is the only one i've read 100% through and not simply marked as read.

you win.

also, i have a massive collections of homies, i'm actually thinking about somehow doing a post about them, yo.

Cora said...

You know, none of that really surprises me. I don't know, I'm going down the list saying "yep," "mm-hmm," "I can so see that," and "well of course." Pat me on the back, Zibbs, I've been picturing you quite accurately. Unless you're lying here. (wink) I would love it if you would do posts about the WB and Disney products you developed and the stand up career. C'mon! Pretty please! You're one interesting fella. :-)

BTW, my wv: unded. Ooh. Now I feel so alive!

DaveB said...

Nice list.

Number three reminds me of an episode of Scrubs where one guy ends up in a bath so long it becomes a legitimate questions as to how much of it is bath water and how much is urine....

Dr Zibbs said...

Whoa - look at all of these comments already. And www, I'll be writing about China soon.

diane said...

What's a homie? I always thought it was someone sympathetic from your home town. Do you have a bunch of homies in your attic?

Sarah's Blogtastic Adventures said...

I have a birthmark on my back that looks like North Dakota. Weird...

sista #2 said...

I have to ask......did you try on Sally's big red glasses?

Another thing.....a collection of homies? You cannot imagine what I am thinking.

But seriously, what are they? Them?

peace

Jill said...

19 is funny. How old are you?

Dr Zibbs said...

Sista # 2 - I didn't get to try on her glasses but I did stare at them.

Jill - I'm older than the sea and younger than a baby.

dizzy mom said...

I thought you were a DeeJay? I used to collect Pez dispensers. I eventually got rid all of them but one. Betcha can't guess which one. Wonder Woman! I'm glad I can view you now...getting my fix. BTW I blame you for any spelling errors on your post. The way your comment window pops up, there are no toolbars/menus (my google spell checker). Don't even try to tell me to write it in a word doc then copy and paste. I'd rather have spelling errors...

so tak thet yuo bule yek!

dizzy mom said...

Will you save some bath water for me? Just a little bit in a vial?
You can give it to me, or I sneak into your house and get it myself.

Did you say Sarah Jessica Parker? Oh, wait. You said Sally Jessie Raphael.

Grant Miller said...

My wife would love to hear about your China stories. She's fluent in Mandarin, but has never been there. Yet.

LiLu said...

4. I've plucked a chicken.

I've milked a cow. Together we could basically run a farm! That's all there is to it, I bet.

Giggle Pixie said...

Personally I find that math is highly overrated.

Distributorcap said...

but did you make Sally Jesse Raphael a steak with pistachios and serve her some Jack Daniels?

Dr Zibbs said...

LiLu - it's settled. Lets start a farm together.

D Cap - Yes.

greeneyesmcl said...

#26 You collect kitchen sinks.
#27 Wish you could drink as much milk as the King of the Farmer's Market and his son.

Be one with the Fro said...

Nice post. I have a couple things in common with you hahaha I sing and talk to myself when no one is around...I'm like a Dr.Phil.

I need to get started on my 25 things...

Dr Zibbs said...

Be one with the Fro - thanks for visiting my blog.

7. Despite what you read on my blog, if you met me in real life you'd be surprised that I'm pretty normal

Say it ain't so Dr. Zibbs!

URBAN BLONDE said...

What no president of the Corky fan club on your list?

Fancy Schmancy said...

You NEVER fail to fascinate me. You always leave me wanting to find out more about you.

Dr Zibbs said...

Fancy - I love how you're 5 years behind on my blog.

At least you're reading it though.

LYDIA said...

Let's discuss Number 21. Phobia of "retarded" people.

Please just watch How's Your News? MTV one time. Just ONE TIME!

http://www.mtv.com/ontv/dyn/hows_your_news/series.jhtml

I made my husband watch it last night - he was so uncomfortable. He told me the creators are Matt Stone and Trey Parker (ring a bell, South Park....)

I laughed a lot when I watched it. This would make a great post actually.

Rachel said...

I'm intrigued by your birthmark. I saved your post until I made time to photograph my birth mark.

Ok. I'm weird.
