25 Random Things About Me...

Thanks to Hellen for this idea...

1. One of the most happiest days of my life was the last day of elementary school. One of the worst days of my life was the first day of middle school.

2. My favorite way to sleep is on my stomach, maybe because I'm so used to back scratches, which are my favorite thing in the world.

3. Pets: I've had 3 cats in my lifetime, (Midget, Shadow and Cookie) and 4 guinea pigs (Nibble, Squeaky, Dr. Claw and Andora). One of my earliest memories involves petting Squeaky.

4. I have a very high opinion of drinking and liquid courage. I never drank till my senior year of high school. The first time it happened, I drove home. The second time I got drunk, I made out with a complete stranger. The third ended up with me getting hosed off at a car wash after puking in the car and all over myself. A lot of firsts and onlys there.

5. Freshman 15 my ass, I've gained 10 pounds every year since I was a freshman in high school. I was 114 then, I'm now about 215.

6. I'm a very quiet person, not necessarily shy, but I'm very introverted. I usually think of everything I say before it leaves my mouth.

7. I've had very short hair since 9th grade. I had my mom buzz it all throughout high school and college.

8. My parents forced me to go camp when I was younger which I still give them grief about now. I had to go to Catholic Youth Camp and Boy Scout Camp, both of which I hate with a passion to this day. Surprisingly, Camp Michindoh for Page in 6th grade was one of the funnest times in my life.

9. Two of my earliest favorite books were Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel and Freight Train

10. In high school and college my bedroom walls were covered in pictures of hot girls. Mom wanted me to tone it down constantly in high school. Second year of college, our floor got in-trouble sooo much we started a wall of referrals in our room.

11. I picked computers as a career choice my senior year of high school, mainly because I couldn't see myself doing anything else. That and the computer field was supposedly a "growing" field.

12. My earliest and most fondest movie is Star Wars, I watched my families tape of it so many times, I even have the commercials memorized to this day.

13. In college we got stopped by the Canadian border police coming back to the US. I was so very drunk. We had to go into the station because we lied about what we were doing in Canada, which was clearly drinking. I dropped my birth certificate and a mountie asked if it was drugs. My response: "Let me check".

14. I'm a very simple person, from how I dress to what my apartment looks like. Also very lazy in the same regard.

15. I'm deathly afraid of bees, hornets, wasps and yellow jackets. I freeze up when they're around. Strangely enough, I've never been stung.

16. Jenny Young is probably my oldest friend. I've known her since our older brothers played tee-ball together and we were in pre-school. Last year she married one of my closest friends Anthony.

17. I am the youngest of 3. My mom had me when she was 40 years old. People would ask if she was my grandma. John and Eva would often pick on me when I was younger. One of their favorite games was to grab my arms and legs and throw me around.

18. I've used the same shaver for the last 10 years. It was the first one I got, and somehow it still works fine.

19. I stay up later than anyone I know. I'll make fun of people for saying they went to bed at 2. Should make parenting easier.

20. My first memory of the love of my life is talking to her in the lunch line in high school. Didn't think of her in that way for quite awhile.

21. I hope I leave this world the way I entered it: naked bare ass leading the way, mooning the world.

22. Eminem has been my favorite artist/singer/rapper since junior year of high school when he came out with his second album.

23. I haven't been single for more than about 6 months going back to 5th grade.

24. My hobbies have included: card games when I was in middle school(Magic, Star Wars, LOTR), wrestling in high school and fantasy sports in college to now.

25. I have had awful allergies all my life. The worst being when I went to Grandmas house, there was something in the air which I couldn't breathe-in. I now live 10 minutes from her house...


  1. #19 and #20 are my favorites.

    Staying up late will make parenting easier? I think you won at least 454,235,315 points in my book.

20. Vexing Devil

Giving an opponent a choice is never a good idea. However I really feel like it's win win here in the aggressive deck. A 4/3 for one will almost always be worth a card. So the real question is - is it worth a card to deal 4 damage for a red? It's not quite Flame Slash good in a control deck, or as great top deck as Thunderous Wrath but better than Thunderbolt or Lava Axe.

19. Scute Mob

Not a true one drop. But by turn six hopefully you are going get a hydra-like insect that will quickly get insanely huge if not dealt with. My biggest issue is that it doesn't have trample. It's still a great costed creature that can do some work if unchecked. There are lots of ways to give it Trample in Green not named Rancor.

18. Dragonmaster Outcast

And yet another non-true one drop. If you can stay…

My Top 100 One Drop (CC) Creatures (100-81)

One drops are the least important thing in any draft or sealed pool. You shouldn't play them pretty much ever. They typically do little for you, don't fit random cards, or just suck. And why should they, you aren't expected to win the game by turn 1(not counting you Legacy). In constructed, it's a whole different ball game. You have these cheap cards that actually interact with other cards in your deck. Not only that - your selection is a lot wider and if you look deep enough, you can find cards that can really put the pressure on.

The number 100 just kind of worked out. There are approximately 600 one costed creatures, and I honestly only checked out about 400 of them - top half and the very bottom(maybe I trust The Gatherer too much, but I'm always open to suggestions!). I found 95 that I really liked just naturally. The other 5 are included as my bottom 5, but 100 of course just sounded better.
I could have forced myself to get 5 more, but there are essentially…

40. Gnat Miser

Since it doesn't really affect the battlefield, it's hard to rank it higher. But it has a great little ability on turn one(especially on the play) and it works well in multiples. 

39. Skyshroud Elite

It's an elvish Kird Ape! It doesn't have the pesky Mountain requirement and any decent deck is going to have a non basic land. If by rare chance your opponent is on the draw and waits to play their special lands, you are left with a pitiful 1/1. And it's ceiling is just a 2/3 so it's good, but not great.

38. Sakura-Tribe Scout/Skyshroud Ranger

I think doing it as an instant and then casting something large with flash would work, so the Scout might be strictly better than the ranger. Early game these things do work. Late game they do virtually nothing. 

37. Slumbering Dragon

I think you need to abuse this to make it really…
