25 Random Things About Me

Written by George Manty  · February 19, 2009

So earlier this year my wife Jill tagged me with this Facebook note (similar to a blog meme) that had the following rules:

Rules: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you.

(To do this, go to “notes” under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random things, tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish.)

Well the first time she tagged me, my response was:

1. I don’t like to follow rules šŸ™‚

Apparently that WAS NOT the answer she was looking for… I think here exact words were “YOU DIDN’T EVEN TRY!” So in the interest of marital harmony I have decided to write a list of 25 random things about me. I hope you enjoy them… and yes they are all true.

1. My first love was football. When I was old enough to write I wrote “When I grow up I want to be a football player for the Miami Dolfins”. Hey I was five. I didn’t spell dolphins right.

2. I grew up in South Florida (most of which was in Lake Park, Florida).

3. I attended the following schools (all in Florida), Lake Park Baptist Elementary School, The Kings Academy, Suncoast High School, Palm Beach Junior College, Florida State University.

4. I now live in Texas.

5. One of my dreams growing up was to be a professional athlete (basketball player).

6. I was really good at basketball.

7. My brother was really good at tennis.

8. I have Bachelors degree in computer science.

9. When I was a baby I fell asleep to the Beatles and Beach Boys music.

10. I still like the Beatles and Beach Boys.

11. In my teen years I was a headbanger.

12. My first rock concert was in Hollywood, Florida with Ozzy Osbourne and Motley Crue.

13. I love basketball, football and tennis.

14. I have been happily married for 10 1/2 years to my wife.

15. When I was a teenager, my friend and I formed a two person heavy metal ban called Krum. It didn’t last very long… I was the lead singer and bass player. I can’t sing (not that it matters with heavy metal), and I wasn’t very good at bass.

16. I can’t believe I am actually telling you this stuff.

17. I am very sleepy (it’s after midnight).

18. I should go to bed.

19. I have lived in the following places in Florida: Lake Park, North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Tallahassee, and Delray Beach.

20. I currently live in Cypress,Texas.

21. I love Texas, but I miss Florida.

22. I LOVE the beach.

23. My first summer off from college I went to Singer Island beach every single day with a friend of mine. I was a beach bum that summer. It was great!

24. In the middle of seventh grade, I skipped to eighth. I should have just skipped to college.

25. I should write children’s stories because I make up funny stories for my kids ALL the time.

26. I think I mentioned earlier that I don’t like to follow the rules…

27. Ok, the fact that it is so late must be getting to me…

28. I didn’t think I would make it to 25

29. Ok, seriously I need to stop.

30. But I just can’t stop…

31. Sometimes I am a little goofy… err… ok sometimes I am real goofy.

If you would like to tell people 25 things about yourself, just refer back to this post on your blog with your list of 25 things and I will link to your 25 random things about you in this post (as long as it’s family friendly of course)...

    Honestly, George. I have several same things with you: I’m a bachelor degree holder of Computer science, a former basketball player for my college, I loved Beatles but I’m not a headbanger!

    PS: I doubt no one will resist the sunshine and beautiful beaches, especially those at Florida, George.
