Smoke and Mirrors

In a perfect world . . .

6. Do you use sarcasm a lot? All depends on who you ask.
7. Do you still have your tonsils? Yup, a few other body parts, too

Feel free to ‘steal’ this one.
An obvious cheat post but what the hell.


  1. Made me smile… great Meme! You have an interesting view on things… kind of original… in a good way of course! Thanks for sharing

    As always, an original comment.
    Thanks, Enreal.

  2. Dude, I had no idea you could juggle. That is freakin’ awesome.

    Also I have commented on this meme before that not only would I be friends with myself, I am the only dude that I would ever consider going gay for.

    Let’s see how you look in a Speedo first.

  3. Not a lot of surprises here I have to fact it becomes obvious why we get along so well…
    But I do have to say, at some point in time you must have had hair, so you could have told us that at least..sheesh!
    So you think you can juggle huh?? Let’s see how that goes after half a dozen pints of Guinness shall we??

    I’ll juggle some Guinness (not!)
    I will try to find some pictures of me with a pony-tail.
    It would blow your mind.
    I had so much damn hair, it was ridiculous.
    Oh, dear, summer is coming fast.

  4. Love the new site. Very cool. Juggling, heh? Now there’s something you don’t see every day. Happy New Year. Kim

    I gotta up my game on the juggling thing.
    It’s been years.
    When I first learned, I rocked.
    Not so much now.
    No chainsaws for moi . . .

  5. Happy to see that the Taylor guitar tone is one of your favorite sounds. You should play it more often. What model do you have by the way? Send me an email when you get a chance.

    I will be playing it more often in preparation for a few personal performances this summer.
    Thanks for the comment, Taylordude
    Love Taylor guitars!

  6. Puppies? As in like puppy breath .. ? or puppy poo?
    both are gross.
    I love that you’re a giant.

    Puppies have a smell.
    They should make an air freshener with the exact scent.
    It’s innocence, I think.

  7. Now I know more about you-you. 😉

    Beatles, provolone, chocolate mousse… you have impeccable tastes ~m. :)

    Lord knows I try, MrsV . . .

  8. Oh, dear, summer is coming fast
    this is a good thing michael..
    don’t sound so worried!!

    Do I sound worried?
