Each Sunday Chari at Happy to Design gives us a chance to repost an earlier blog in Sunday Favorites. When I’ve been able to participate, I’ve mainly been reposting entries from my early blogging days, before I “met” most of you. This post originally appeared on October 8, 2008. Realizing that my profile is somewhat limited in information (I haven’t listed any favorite books or movies or stuff), I decided this post would tell you a little more about me. When you’re finished reading, be sure to drop by Happy to Design to see what others are offering.
JB tagged me to participate in a game of Blog Tag. My task is to write seven random, weird or funny things about myself. So here goes.
1. I drive a red Ford F-150, extended cab. This is my fourth red pickup truck. The second one was supposed to be Dakota Beige. I had special ordered it, but when it came in another salesman sold it and they had to scramble to find another one for me. It turned out to be another red one, so I've just stuck with red ever since.
2. The radio in my red Ford F-150 is usually tuned to a sports talk radio station. We have a good local station here in Birmingham, even though the talk usually centers around Auburn and Alabama.
3. I post on a Razorback message board using the handle Petunia Pig. I started with the old KARK message board about 12 or 13 years ago. Everyone on that board eventually migrated to the PigPen message board, and when PigPen folded I started posting on the Hawg's Illustrated board.
4. My grandmother name is KBeau. At least that's what we are teaching Walker to say. Ben's friends were the first to call me KBeau. The name comes from my first email address, email@example.com. We joined AOL when it was a DOS program and the only people you could email were other AOL members. Unfortunately, when I went to another service provider, KBeau was not available. Since I'm KBeau, Larry is naturally LBeau.
