Darren needs more internet foolishness.

I can’t believe I’m doing another FB Fad!

Ok, so how you play the game is you go to http://Google.com and type in your name and the word “needs” after it. I.E. “Kristina needs”. Type in your note the first 10 searches that come up.

1. Darren needs all the extrastrength, determination and luck that he can muster to survive trials which slice, burn and almost drown him …
(ya got that right!)

2. Darren needs myspace!
(that is pure blasphemy!)

3. Darren Needs (Bristol) is on Facebook.
(hi Mr. Needs! you have a nice name)

4. JOIN THE DARREN NEEDS A HAIRCUT CLUB?
(this is NOT LIKE GOD)

5.  Darren Y. needs cheering up!
(Darren Y… need a hug? Darren C. specializes in them!)

6. Anyone know if Darren needs team leaders for UK Repo tour?
(I don’t know… but I need to visit the UK!)

7. Darren NEEDS applesauce
(yumm… on toast!)

8. ‘Soft’ Darren needs SAS training, says Vanstiphout
(no comment but Vanstiphout we’re gonna have to have a chat about that!)

9.  Twitter / Darren: Needs to forward texts on …
(hummm?)

10.  Darren needs time to mourn
(yeah… laying some things down in 2009!  GOTTA LET GO AND LET GOD!)

That was an interesting exercise in Internet Foolishness!

16 +9 = 25 Random Things About Me

In the past 30 days or so I’ve been tagged by a couple friends to do either a 16 random things or a 25 things about me post.  I haven’t done ANY of them until now… so here goes.  (Dang I wrote a lot!)

Oh, for those who have never seen this, you basically write a number of little known facts about yourself and ask your friends to do the same.

dc-locs_20090118_1629121.    I don’t eat beef or pork or seafood – not for any particular reason
2.    The only meat I do eat is boneless chicken/turkey or fish. (if I find a bone, the party is over!)
3.    I’m left handed and so is most of my family on my Mother’s side.
4.    I want to be married and have children, but I feel like I’m nowhere close to being ready to do either.
5.    I went to school for 7 years full-time and still don’t have my degree (please hold all your ‘go get it’ comments… you won’t be the first or the last to remind me).
6.    I project confidence when I’m most insecure.  I only have begun to realize that in the past year or so.
7.    I talk ‘in my head’ a lot. There’s a huge internal dialogue going most of the time.  People who think out-loud just about confuse me!
8.    I was born pre-mature and given a very bleak outlook on life by my doctors. Mom was a trooper and made the doctors second guess themselves on numerous occasions.
9.    On the health theme, I have a scar near my eye that most people never notice.   I had a tumor (non-cancerous) behind my left eye that undetected could have caused permanent blindness in my left eye.
10.    My computer just had a blue-screen-of-death (BSOD) error because of my USB drives… so I lost 2 random facts! 🙂
11.    Creativity and Performance run in both mom and dad’s sides of the family.  All of us at some point have sung, acted, danced, written, directed, photographed, modeled, or played in some way or another.  My grandfather was a well-known Jazz musician.
12.    I’ve been using computers since age 3, had my first e-mail address in 1994, and first web page in 1996
13.    I’ve had a job or my own business since the 5th grade.  I was always saving for and buying the things I wanted and then selling them to get other stuff.
14.    I was ordained as a minister in 1999 and did full time ministry several years.
15.    I tend to keep everything… I’ve got belongings in storage in 3 difference places right now.
16.    I rarely pick up the phone to call people.  Even with clients connect most fluidly with those who communicate well via e-mail and text.
17.    I can be myself better on a stage in front of thousands than in a small room full of complete strangers.
18.    Around 18 years old I was coloring my hair for a season… very dark reddish brown.
19.    This is my second time locking my hair… the first time I was totally on my own and it wasn’t going very well.
20.    I’m known for giving hugs, but I’m taken by surprise when someone is physically affectionate toward me.
21.    I can spend hours in a store deliberating over making a purchase on anything above $100.  I always want to make sure I’m making a good investment and for the right reasons.
22.    My unconscious auto-response to stress/anxiety is sleep.  Before I was aware of this, there were times where I would sleep 16 hours a day.
23.     In an emergency, I often have taken the lead and even done first-aid until the paramedics arrived – however if you tell me about how you nicked yourself or some other minor injury, just hearing the story will make my stomach do flips.
24.    Most barbershops make me uncomfortable.
25.    I’ve been in therapy with a Christian councilor for several months and it’s one of the best choices I’ve ever made.

How Cute Were You?

Me taking a \'bath\' ;-)What’s poppin 360!!  This is something different for me and y’all too…not my normal blog.  But…I figured that I would try it to see how many responses I would get and how many people would be willing to do it.  So here it goes…
Are you ashamed of your baby pictures?  How CUTE were you?  If you don’t think you were a cute baby (hopefully that’s not the case), then how UGLY were you…lol?  The members of the “BABY PIC CLUB” are curious to know.  Join the us in a “baby pic explosion” going on until the end of the month.  Post your “goo goo gaa gaa pics” on your 360 page as your primary photo (preferred) or either one of your other photos and keep them there until the end of July.  Then help us out and spread the word to your friends.  Copy this blog to your blog or in a message to your 360 friends and watch how much bigger the explosion gets.  This should be fun and interesting to see who and how many respond.  We’re looking forward to seeing all the cute…and maybe not so cute lil squirts running around here on Yahoo! 360.
Thanks for making work this baby pic campaign work.
With sincere giggles and drools…
