Greed Can Be a Bad Thing!

While I was cruising around the galaxy like I do every Monday to bleed off some stress I spy a little light blinking on my gleaming rocket ship's dashboard. Now, what in heavens name could that be? Putting down the ray gun that I was polishing a while earlier, I hesitantly get off my command chair to find out just what Monday is bringing upon me now.

Looking closer at the panel of the blinking light, I notice that it's actually a homing beacon. Ok, just what is it homing on now? Some loot? Hmmm, who knows. That's what it's programmed to do anyway. Gleefully I chuck my ray gun aside and guide my ship towards the beacon. It takes a few minutes but I eventually arrive at the location.


Once there, I see this gleaming silver disk floating in space. Maybe it's a location map or something. using my super duper tractor beam, I grab the disk and insert it into the terminal on my dashboard and what greets me is definitely no treasure map! It's a message from Nessa, telling me I've just be tagged! Darn it! I should have just left that disk floating in space ... LOL!

Now, wasn't that mighty smart of her, suckering me in like that. Everyone just knows how utterly inquisitive and greedy this spaceman can be sometimes. Oh well, now that I've been tagged I might as well do it right away since I have nothing better to do at the moment besides polishing my ray gun. This tag is called the Eight Random Facts meme . Why stop at only 8? Why not 16? Or better yet, 32? LOL! Ok, I'd better keep my big mouth shut before someone actually tags me with a 32 random fact meme!

First and foremost, here are the usual rules. Each of you start with 8 random facts or habits about yourself. Once you're tagged, write a blog post about your own random fact and post these rules. At the end of the post you need to tag at least 64 people ... urrmmm ... just kidding, 8 other suckers ... ahhhhhh ... that would be 8 other wonderful bloggers and include their names. Then once you're done, don't forget to let them know in their blogs that you've thoroughly ruined their entire week by giving them a tag ... LOL! Oh, it's also to tell them to come read your random facts.

Now, without anymore wise cracks, here are the 8 random facts of a slightly crazy spaceman:

1. I love superhero comic books.
2. I love wearing tee shirts to just about everywhere.
3. I'm fascinated by gadgets of every kind.
4. I'm a huge Star Trek fan.
5. I thoroughly dislike incompetent people (unfortunately I happen to know a few too many!).
6. I'm a cleanliness freak.
7. I hate crowds!
8. I work best under pressure (which is a nice way of saying I'm a lazy bum ... LOL!).

And now comes the part I love the most. Spreading this meme to 8 other victims out there ... Let me see who pissed me off in the past week ... LOL! Just kidding, ok! And the lucky eight are:

Shemah of My Sweet Escape
Rozella of Asian Mutt International
Haizum of Serious Scribbles & Silly Sayings
Ethel of Once Upon A Time
Aunty J of Good Things In Life
Adrian of First Time Dad (how could I let you off, buddy ... LOL)
Marzie of Mariuca's Perfume Gallery
Osindak of This Is My Life

Yeah, I know she tagged you but I didn't read properly and thought she tagged your main blog, so I tagged your MPG, but then I checked again and saw that she also tagged MPG, blur case la I. Anyway, you can do this at your main blog if you want, I'm not fussy ... LOL!
