You''ve got questions, I've got answers

Hi, how's it going? Well it is 2006 and I got some announcements. First, I have teamed up with two cool dudes, Max Powers and T. Leach, to work on a new blog devoted to sports. So if you have an even remote interest in the wonderful world of sports check it out, Turf Toe. Next, I have to answer some of your questions so let's get busy. For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, my Christmas gift to everyone was that I would answer any question you asked me. Scroll down to the Happy Holidays post and the comments to see what these fine folks wanted to know.

Mona -- The reason I am standing next to that midget in that picture is because he actually knows who let the dogs out and I am hoping he will tell me.

Steph -- Boxer briefs, and occasionally I go sans panties because there is a commando in all of us.

SuperSpyGal -- Hmmm, I was never good at train questions but I am going to guess and say Cocoa Puffs because everyone goes cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.

Blonde -- First off, people think that Jennifer Aniston and Sarah Jessica Parker are hot because they have been conditioned by the media like little monkeys to believe they are hot. And Mrs. Shife and I had been together 7 years before we got married.

Neurotic Missy -- If I could be doing something else it would be running a Basset Hound rescue. I love those dogs and there are a lot of them out there that are abused and neglected who just need some love and a good home.

Totolehero -- You bet your Canadian butt I would be there.

Armaedes -- Only on the weekends.

Phats -- You and a few others were curious about how I met Mrs. Shife, and it is quite an interesting story so I am going to devote an entire post to it tomorrow. Sorry but you have to wait one more day.

Dashababy -- I have a couple of Christmas memories that really stick out. One was in high school when my folks surprised me and got me a Basset hound puppy. I had wanted a dog for a long time and they had me convinced that it wasn't happening, but they came through and gave me the dog. His name was Higgins and he was an awesome dude. He passed away a few years ago but I still think of him often. Another one was when I finally got out of the Navy for good and made it home in time for Christmas to be with my family. It was the first time I had been home for Christmas in awhile and it was just nice to be home.

Atalanta -- If I could pick any super powers I would choose the ability to be invisible. I thought I would try and be more of a smart ass on this question, but I just can't think of anything that seems amusing.

Luke -- Well, I actually did some research on this one, and you will find your answer here mister, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_chicken_or_the_egg.

The_Mrs. -- I thought hard about this one, and that it turns out was my most embarrassing moment in the sack. During my freshman year in college I had a major crush on a girl who after months and months of pursuit finally caved in and gave me a shot at the title. Well one thing led to another and we were back in my room ready to exchange body fluids. Well Mr. Shife's underpants navy never left the shore because I could not get hard. I don't know what happened -- too much pressure or too much booze or a combination of both, but the equipment did not work that night. And the crush never was interested in me after that.

SugarHigh -- We got married in her hometown and she has lots and lots of relatives so we had about 200 people at our wedding. Mrs. Shife wanted a fall wedding and so that was our theme but she did not have any set colors. Yes we had beer on tap because both sides of our families like to imbibe and all of our friends are raging alcoholics. No "Shout" at the wedding but there was plenty of music and dancing.

Cher -- Like I told Phats, the story about Mrs. Shife and I needs an entire post devoted to it so I am going to cover it tomorrow.

So there you go my friends, all of your questions have been answered. If I forget someone, please let me know, otherwise I will talk to you all later.

Glad to have you back for 2006, Shife.
