Tag Results: Don't Read if You Have a Weak Stomach

1. For a midnight snack, I used to occasionally eat hotdogs without cooking them: my wife thought it was disgusting, but hey- aren't they already cooked? I've stopped that 'disgusting' habit ever since I started going to the gym a year ago. What's really in a hotdog, anyway?

2. I used to operate a nuclear reactor on a U.S. Navy ship 25 years ago. I don't have most of my hair any longer, but I was able to father 3 kids.

3. My favorite class in high school was creative writing (I'm an engineer; hey did you know that engineers CAN write?).

4. After 20+ years of using a PC running Windoze, I finally upgraded to a MacBook Pro Duo, so now I can run Mac OS and Windoze. I know, I know, why bother to run Windoze on a MAC? Yech!

5. I want to sell my house and live in an RV, touring the country when I retire. "Yeah, Right!" says my other half.

Now I'll peruse the Diabetes OC for 5 more D's to tag.

Gary, when i was a kid i used to ALWAYS eat cold hot dogs out of the fridge.

The thought of doing that now makes me so sick to my stomach! Funny how things change.

I chuckled at the bald thing in relation to your "nuclear" career!

I recently picked up an old iBook G3 - and it's convinced me that I want to shell out the big bucks for a nice new one with my tax return.

George, guess I'm still a kid at heart when it comes to those hotdogs out of the fridge. I just had one last night after writing that post, and I hadn't eaten one like that in a year!

Hey Scott, I think a Mac would be a fantastic great use of your tax return! Today they are upgrading the remaining Macs with Intel Core 2 Duo chips. I just purchased 'parallels', which allows me to run Windoze or Linux or whatever as a Virtual Machine, natively.

I have a few apps which have to run under Windoze, so now I can have my Mac too!
