Call Me Marty
I’m not much for revealing things about myself. Personal masking, for whatever reason, is important to me.
So, that said, or revealed, here goes:
1.I’m adopted. When I was born my name was Martin Lynn Enquist.
2.I have a deep antipathy toward movies. Too many people see them. There’s too much money involved. It makes me feel dirty, and not in a good way.
3.For some reason I have a hard time explaining to myself, I’m proud I was never an English major as an undergrad. My degree is in Broadcast Journalism.
4.I started college when I was 21, after an ill-fated marriage at 19.
5.My current obsession is with Wolfgang Puck tomato pesto frozen pizzas. I like to add calamata olives.
6.I used to like to stay up very late. Now I like to wake up very early. The morning world is beautiful.
7.Whatever happens to me, I always have the secondary thought that I might be able to steal a sentence from it for a poem. It makes me feel like a vampire, but I’m ok with that.
8. My favorite High School story: In the gym locker room, a guy had my arm behind my back and my face into the locker. He said, “Tell them you’re an ass hole.” “OK,” I said, “you’re an ass hole.” It was delicious.
8a. Bonus round. In the above picture, I'm the one in the middle, in High School, as George Gibbs. Now why would someone want to mess with him, and get that hair all messed up?
I'm supposed to tag some others now. I'll go do some research and get back to you.
