Liebster Blog Award

     The Armchair Squid has graciously presented me with The Liebster Blog Award so, in receiving this award Laughing at Life, 2 has now got some real blogging street cred.  I've finally made it Momma, Top of the world!
     Being presented with the prestigious Liebster Blog Award comes with a few responsibilities.  As a recipient of the award I need to give 11 fun facts about myself, answer the 11 questions about me that were asked by The Armchair Squid, then award a Liebster to 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.  Then if my choices for a Liebster are good enough to, they can in turn repeat those steps to keep this award going.

11 Fun facts about me;

     1.  I got started in comedy by entering a song parody contest on the Howard Stern Show.
     2.  I have six kids. Five boys and a girl.
     3.  I can't dunk a basketball.
     4.  I love to say the phrase 'Your Mammy'
     5.  Satan is an underling of my ex-wife
     6.  I am 37, and have yet to grow up.
     7.  I am afraid of heights.
     8.  I have two cats.  They are the only ones that understand me.
     9.  I hate sad movies.
    10.  I make awesome meatballs.
    11.  I have OCD, and over analize everything.

The Armchair Squid's 11 questions for me;

     1. If you could live one year of your life again, which would you choose and why?
     - My senior year of high school

      2. If you could be good or better at one thing without putting in the time and work, what would it be?
     - I would choose playing guitar.  I think it would be really cool.

      3. You've been invited to join a bowling league and you may choose any five people to be on your team.  There's just one catch: you can only pick fictional characters.  Whom would you choose?
     -  Jay and Silent Bob, The Blues Brothers, and The Dude

     4. How do you really feel about pears?
     -  I LOVE pears.

     5. How do you feel about the metric system?
     -  I have no feelings about the metric system.

     6. The Doctor knocks on your door.  He'll take you to visit any place on Earth at any point in history (he always seems to make the choices with interstellar travel).  Where and when do you choose?
     -  Houston Texas in the 80's so I could work at the Comedy Workshop with my hero in comedy, Bill Hicks.

     7. If you could learn any new language, which would you choose?
     -  Spanish, so I would finally know what the people behind me in line at the grocery store are saying.

     8. You have one personal quality which eventually annoys everyone in your life including, on occasion, yourself.  What is it and do you feel it's within your power to change it?
     -  My OCD, and not really.

     9. If you knew when you were younger what you'd be doing with your life now, how might you have planned things differently?  Do you think your life would truly be better overall if you had?
     -  I probably wouldn't change anything for fear that it would make me miss out on the people I have now.

     10. If all went south and you had to turn to a life of crime (assuming you haven't already), what line of dirty work would you choose?
     -  I would want to join the mafia.

     11. How do you get your geek on?
     -  Blogging, and video games.
