Young at Heart

Welcome again to Stealing which we bring you weekly on The WTIT Blog. We have gotten really good at just stealing a meme from someone else’s post. (You can play this meme with Judd and click on the official Sunday Stealing meme.) Today we ripped this meme off from a blogger known as Tattooed Minivan Mom from the blog The Scattered Mind of a Tattooed Minivan Mom. She explains that she got it from Janana Bee. It appears Jana might have actually written this meme. But, it could have stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. All meme questions are in bold.

Cheers to all us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: The Now Vs. Then Meme

It's been a while since we had to post rules. But here we will list the relevent ones:

*Think back to ten years ago on this month.
*Write truthful answers and ELABORATE. This makes it more interesting!
*If you don't have a scanner you may omit #14 but I think if you do you should totally do it!
*It's about personal changes. Have fun with it!

Then: August 1999

1. Age: 247.

2. Romantic Status: Recently single, my last divorce happened 13 months prior. I was alone. It was a dark night. I could hear the gods cry.

3. Occupation: I was the Operations Manager of a huge furniture store. My boss sucked. The job sucked. The furniture sucked. They were a huge 50 store chain. They no longer exist. Did I mention that they sucked?

4. Fun night out: I hung out at a bar called Free Spirit. It was a dive, but it was close. It was fun if I got laid. Not so much when I didn't.

5. My BFFs: When did this become an official abbreviation and what the fuck does it stand for? I know it means best friends is the extra f mean forever? Who the fuck has friends that last forever? 112 year olds? Harvey was my best friend.

6. I spent way too much time: Working. Retail sucks.

7. I spent not enough time: Having sex. Not that I haven't always felt that way. There never can be too much sex.

8. I wanted to be when I grew up: Another meme written by a child. I was grown-up. I was just hoping I'd fall in love again after whichever wife that I had recently divorced.

9. Biggest concern: Money. I was seriously broke. If anyone ever tells you they got off cheaply during a divorce it means there were no severed limbs.

10. What my biggest concern should have been: Doing a threesome. It hadn't even occurred to me. Now I know better.

11. Where did I live: I lived in Manchester at the WTIT Tudor Studio.

12. Dumbest thing I did that year: I quit my job without another lined up. That was mentally retarded especially for me. Looking for work is much harder than working even if your job sucks. My dumb girlfriend thought I was right.

13. If I could go back now and talk to myself I would say: Don't quit the job and start doing threesomes.

14. Picture of me then:
Now: August 2009

1. Age: 257 1/2. But I'm a Youthful 257. Young at heart, as it were...

2. Romantic Status: Very single. I'm much happier about it now. I just met someone that I'm actually going to date. I hope I remember how to do that. Normally I meet someone, we have sex and poof! We are in a relationship. I don't do a lot of dating per se. We will see.

3. Occupation: I sell liquor to keep Massachusetts safe from sobriety. I call it "God's work".

4. Fun night out: Recently I found a new bar to hang out at. It's called The Yarde Tavern. It's fun if I get laid. Not so much when I don't.

5. My BFFs: Still Harvey Wallbanger. He lives in Atlanta. But in September he's heading up so we can cause trouble in the same state for ten days.

6. I spend way too much time: Writing this fucking blog. It doesn't write itself, you know.

7. I spend not enough time: Having sex. Not that I haven't always felt that way. There never can be too much sex. I'm having deja vu all over again.

8. I want to be when I grow up: It's ten years later and I'm still not fucking grown up? A stoner kid wrote this, I swear to god.

9. Biggest concern: I'd like to fall in love again.

10. What my biggest concern should be: Keeping the French twins happy. I may not have mentioned this, but they are a lot of fun to be with.

11. Where do I live: In Enfield in the WTIT Gatewood Studio.

12. Dumbest thing I have done this year: Saying yes to that SAME dumb girlfriend from 10 years ago when she asked if we could start getting together again. You probably don't know this, but some people age over a decade. Who knew?

13. What I think I would say to myself in 10 years: You are still fucking grown up. I hope you've been in a LTR for a long time now. Just don't give up the twins. Say they are your cousins or something. Your girlfriend can't be THAT bright. After all, she is putting up with you.


1. What do I miss most from 1999: The big anticipation of the new millennium.

2. What do I miss least from 1999: My dumb girlfriend, as it turns out.

3. What have I accomplished in 10 years that I am most proud of: I don't need to worry about money anymore. And I'm in a job that I love.

4. What have I NOT accomplished in 10 years that I wish I had: I have yet to have sex with Crazy Sam.

WOOT Crazy Sam. Glad some one could have fun with this meme this week. This was a shitty this week. What we all 10 this week or what? LOL

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

You do have a point...

Kwizgiver said...

It's good for the women in your life to understand the importance of the Twins. ;-)

Through Thick and Thin said...

I'm still ever so grateful for "God's work"

NurseExec said...

"no severed limbs" had me laughing. It's so true, isn't it! Happy Sunday :)

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

You would think...

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

I'll keep at it...

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

Nurse E-
you too!

Kimber said...

I enjoyed this week, but it's because 1999 was a huge year for me. It also made me huge. LOL

I wonder which furniture store you are talking about. Did it start with a M or H? Just curious because my Daddy owned a furniture store for 40+ years that he finally sold to a large chain that was then bought out by a larger chain who went bankrupt.

Anyhoo, funny answers and good to see you worked the twins in. ;)

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

It was a northeast chain called Seaman's. And you were big!

Crazy Sam said...

It's only because you have never asked. When's good? ;)

Tilli said...

God's work...Amen =D

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

I will make a note of that...

Stef H (Glitterbabe) said...

GOD! you look great for your age! and i love that stoner baby picture - LMAO! where do you find these great pictures? i cannot find even "good" pix for my memes! i know, it's a talent of yours right?

still luv ya baby!


An Eerie Tapestry said...

Great answers. Loved the pic of the stoner kid. Also surprised how little you seem to have aged in the past 10 years (you still look as young as you did when you were 247). Special thanks for popping by Lyn's blog and suggesting she move in with me; Weiser by name, wiser by nature.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

I've just been doing it for a while. Thanks!

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

It just makes sense. It's not a job she is looking for...

Hazel said...

Don't fall in love, Bud! You look like Graham Russell on your 1999 photo, the hair :) I had to stifle my laughter as I read this in the faculty office. LOL

I'm so confused!

I immediately liked the blog because it had a content warning. I thought, "YES! Now this is my kind of blog"

Then the icing on the cake was seeing that you are from CT and that is where my husband is from.

Then I thought, NO! He's capping on the meme that was stolen from my site with some dude named Thom.

Then I thought, WTF should I care? It's not my meme.

(BTW, I noticed you had some trouble deciphering BFF-which everyone knows means butt fuckers forever...I mean, best friends forever. So in case you didn't know, WTF means what the fuck. Oh, and btw means by the way.)

But then I thought, "Hey! My friend made that meme you mean poopie head!"

Then I thought, who gives a flying fuck? It's a free country and everyone is entitled to their long as it's the same as mine....


Did I mention I have a hard time making up my mind?

Chicks...can't hold they that movie line

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

It doesn't seem likely.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

Hi Mom-
This was one of the best memes that Sunday Stealing has zstolen. Thom did not like it. I thought saying he had a point was my way of say WTF or really "whatever". Thanks for the clarification. I actual got most of the lingo down. I assumed it meant Best Friends Forever, but it is a silly phrase. I'm glad you stopped in and that we found your blog to steal this from. And no, I'm not familiar with that movie line...

Lorielle said...

Are you sure they're French? They look Swedish to me.

The Gal Herself said...

Your *last* divorce? Maybe I'm slow on the pickup, but I had no idea there was more than one ex-Mrs. Wiser. How many are there?

Did you just yell, "I Quit!" one day and storm out? (Of the store, not your marriage.)

Mimi Lenox said...

Something tells me Sam isn't going to go for it. Just a hunch.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

One time the were Japanese...

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

It was pretty close to that...

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

She's such a kidder...

Bond said...

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT MONEY? did you hit the lottery?

WTF lend me some dude

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

No problem. Where should I send it?
