I've Been Tagged

Been a while, huh? Well, my wife interrupted my intense game of Madden '05 to inform me that I really need to update my blog because people tagged me or something. So, I told Brett to hang on for a minute while I answer these questions...

10 years ago today- I had been dating Jenn for 2 1/2 months and was working at a bank and about to enter my sophomore year of college. I lived at home, played racquetball all the time, and drove an obnoxious looking pickup with a lift kit, mud tires, roll bar, and KC lights.

5 years ago- Was working for Monte J White & Associates, waiting to go to Officer Training School in USAF, but my horrible shin splints prevented me from doing that!

1 year ago- Recently finished my MBA and was feverishly searching for a new career.

yesterday- Worked all day, came home to eat dinner, go swimming with the family, told Jenn I SERIOUSLY want to try to see Favre and the Pack play at Lambeau Field this year, paid some bills and went to bed.

Tomorrow- Work all day, then come home and start the weekend, doing whatever comes next. I should finish mowing, but my lawnmower dies every 15 minutes...are you supposed to put oil in those things?

5 snacks I enjoy- extra super ultra movie butter lover's popcorn with a cup of salt, anything chocolate, Velveeta & rotel, El Chico's chips and queso, fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies

5 adult beverages I enjoy- dry red wine (preferably Italian), Shiner Bock on tap, shots of Premium Wild Turkey or Crown Royal, Killian's Red, margaritas

5 bands I know the lyrics to- Bon Jovi (dont laugh), Poison (stop laughing), Kenny Chesney. Uh...Celine Dion, New Kids On The Block, MC Hammer...just kidding. Garth and Tim McGraw.

5 things I would do with $100 000 000- buy a villa in Tuscany, buy nice cars and houses for friends and family, build a HUGE log cabin (with my own hands) in Colorado and host Christmas every year, make millions more in currency arbitrage and commodity futures, and oh yeah - tell Donald Trump he can be my apprentice

5 locations I would like to run away to- Italy, Rocky Mountains, Swiss Alps, Vegas, Italy

5 bad habits I have- grinding my teeth (I've had 2 root canals!), staying up too late, being lazy, getting the newspaper in just my underwear (just kidding), eating too much

5 things I love doing- playing with my girls, having friends/family over, traveling, going to NFL and NHL games, eating

5 movies I like- How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, Radio, Shawshank Redemption, Top Gun, Varsity Blues, anything with Julia Roberts

5 famous people I would love to meet- Brett Favre, Julia Roberts, Bruce Willis, Condoleeza Rice, Larry the Cable Guy (JK!)

5 biggest joys at the moment- my wife & kids, waiting for my son to arrive, living & working in Fort Worth, not having to study for anything, upcoming NFL & NHL season!

5 favorite toys- new laptop, Playstation 2, Polly Pockets, Barbies, costume jewelry - HURRY UP SON, SAVE ME!

5 people to tag- Jennifer, Wendell, Paige, Laura, Josh

OK, we're 2 months or less away from the birth of our son and we still haven't named him yet. For months now, we've just been calling him Favre. This seems really crazy, but the name is actually starting to stick!! Maybe we'll name him Michael Favre Wimberley...or Colin Favre Wimberley...what do you think??

unbelievable!! you blogged! Love the Favre name!! what team u use in madden '05?

Kirk Wimberley said...

Green Bay. I'm a Dallas fan all the way, but they've lost their identity, so I like to play Favre and the Packers!

Alyssa said...

I actually love the name Favre! Also I would like to officially name you a blog snob! I told you when you got a real job you would forget the little people. Oh and Hi Jenn. Hope the pregnancy is going well. Can't wait to see your new nameless little boy!

Kirk Wimberley said...

I'm not a blog snob! A while back, you guys all quit posting regularly, so I quit too...it's just taken me longer to get back to it. I could never forget a family member anyway...once you're in the blog mafia, you're always in!

Alyssa said...

well at least we never stopped reading them. I have not seen a "Kirk comment" on my blog in moths!

Kelly said...

I'm not sure about Favre - maybe for the middle name! Glad we goated you back into blogging!

Jen - I will have to email you pictures from the luau.

Kirk Wimberley said...

Well...IF we decide to get a little crazy and name him Favre, it will definitely be his middle name!

Jeff said...

The Blog Mafia will always get together but the Family is a little concerned with you extended absence.

Kirk Wimberley said...

I understand your concern. I’ve been in Switzerland resolving some “issues” with our Swiss banker. However, the accounts have been setup and we can now carry on with our financial operations. I had to remain “out of touch” for a short while until some things cleared up, if ya know what I mean. My absence was business, not personal.
