25 Things About Moi!

Since I will never, ever be able to figure out 50 or 100 things to say about me all at one time, I am going to use the 25 things about me method. I shall start with the obvious and work on the in-fill for later posts. In recognition and celebration of my 25th post and as a result of being unable to figure out the rhyme or reason as to why some posts get more responses versus others, I am demanding that I receive a minimum of 25 comments to my
list or else.


I am adopted along with my brother and sister.

I grew up in Seattle.

I like the rain, just not all the time.

I never graduated from High School.

I have taught and consulted at Universities.

I was a School Board President for 4 years.

The District is building a new school and gym
with my name on the keystone.

I no longer care if my name is on it. I used to.

I started bartending when I was 20,
I lied about my age.

I am an alcoholic.

I have only been with two women since I was 22.

I never cheated on my wife when I was with her.

I have 5 children, ages 5-15 (I'm very fertile).

Four are daughters,
all with the middle name of Rose.

Emerald, the middle child, passed just before birth.

I was my own contractor when my
Dream House was built.

I am frugal (thanks Mom).

I can afford not to be.

I just started learning about myself.
I never thought to before.

When I was a child, I wanted to be a Chef.

My main source of income is from getting
people stuff. Mostly printing.

People ask me to get it, because I can.

My largest clients were the Wine Industry
and a condom manufacturer.

I prefer to do Marketing/PR/Graphics.

Thanks for sharing. I see you're looking for a little comment whoring here.
And I might remind you that we are having a heat wave here in Seattle...the East Coast is drowning...ha ha ha.
And you happen to live in one of the most beautiful areas in California you lucky man.
You are on quite the journey. I'm happy you're here. Thanks for letting us know more about YOU.

Here is one more toward your 25. I love the pic on this and the last post. And I liked your list.


rm_gerson42 replies on 5/17/2006 7:57 pm:
Thank you Peach. You should post again, in case I don't make it to 25.
Nevermind, I see you further down.

We had that same picture in my school library many years ago. Reminds me of my youth and I'm now going stir crazy trying to work out his name too.

I enjoyed your list and the Graphics/Marketing side of you is very evident. I am glad you are learning about you, I am trying to do the same. It's a slow journey but very worth while.

Somebody help, we need the name of an artist here. Frangi & Peach are stuck.
A journey with company is all the better. Who's got the map?

Two women...holy shit! Have you considered the priesthood?

Actually, there's a practice that combines sexuality and spirituality that I think you might enjoy...

And, did you mean to combine about "moi" with "voila," which means "there it is"? If so, very clever. If not, you've invented a new word, which is still very clever. I'm sure the French will be so pleased as they really appreciate how Americans abuse their language.

rm_gerson42 replies on 5/17/2006 8:25 pm:
I specifically said since I was 22. I got busy for a little while.
Darn it, I wanted to be clever. I meant Moi or just "me".
Sorry Frenchies. C'est plus qu'un crime, c'est une faute or
It is worse than a crime, it is a blunder.

Emerald is a beautiful name for a girl. It's my wife's favorite stone and is in her engagement ring. I'm suprised that we didn't name our daughter that. But she has red hair so I guess 'Ruby' would have been more fitting.

By the way, passing through on a recommendation from Mac. She is a leader in the science of blogging.


rm_gerson42 replies on 5/18/2006 9:27 pm:
Interesting coincedence. Both my mother and grandmother had the middle name Rose and my grandmothers first name was Ruby, Ruby Rose. Glad you came by.

So did you ask Valleyrat yet or am I going to have to do all the leg work around here??? Now I havent slept, eaten or moved for 24 hours and you still have me in suspense (Joking!!).

rm_gerson42 replies on 5/18/2006 9:28 pm:
I didn't. It's been a busy day and if I write Valleyrat, he will probably think something along the lines as, who the hell is gerson.
