The Tag Marathon!

I've been meaning to do this for ages but haven't really got around to it. In the past two weeks (I think), I've been tagged by at least 5 bloggers for 5 different tags (and one award ... hehehe) and I've yet to post a single one (sorry people!). I've been busy with some work (ok, ok, I've been pretty lazy too ... hehehe). Anyway, today I managed to wrangle up some free time on my hands and decided to do a Marathon Tag Session. I'm going to post all the tags that I've been tagged with in this one single post in no particular order. So, to these 5 nice people who tagged me, Nessa, Janice, Bobo, Jean & Ann, I would like to say a big thank you and my apologies for the late postings! And to those who have also tagged me and I didn't mention your name here, please do let me know, ya? Age is catching up with me, memory is not what it used to be ... hehehe ...

Tag No. 1 - The Face Behind The Blog
Janice was the one who tagged me to reveal the face behind the blog. And as unlikely as it may seem, even though I work in an advertising agency equipped with all the fancy tools of the trade and all its sophisticated high tech computers and scanners, for the life of me, I don't have a single photo of myself saved online or on my hard disk (it's the truth, I tell ya ... LOL!) So, short of not displaying anything, I decided to post an image (of what I'd love to look like) with some description of what I really look like (and the description is the only thing that's absolutely accurate, btw ... hehehe). The image on the other hand isn't though :) Use your imagination ... hehehe ...

(Click image for larger view)

Blog Title : Anything Goes!
Description : A slightly 'off centre' person with a place to post his gibberish rantings.
Why "Anything Goes!" : Why not :)
Name : Nick Phillips
Country : Malaysia
Occupation : Urmmm, high class dispatch person. LOL!
Email : Do I have to?... hehehe ...
Birthday : Somewhere in the month of March
Fav Color : Aquamarine
Fav Drink : Coffee, what else!
Fav Fruit : Green apples
Fav Dessert : Urmm, none actually. Not the dessert kinda person.
Hobbies : Reading, Running & Sleeping (Can't say blogging cos it's an addiction, not a hobby ... LOL!)
Some of the blogs that I know which put up picture(s) of me are : I have absolutely no idea, not that there any pictures of me out there anyway ...

Okay, get ready people cos you're gonna be revealing your faces next :)
The usual rules apply:
Post a short article and include your photograph (or more if you want to). If you already have a pix online somewhere, the get creative with a new one :)

Next include the link to the others who have displayed their pix, or even include their pix in your post, adding a reference to it.

So far, these are the brave ones :)

Tag No. 2 - Ten things I hate!

This tag I owe to Jean. I'm supposed to list 10 things I hate, can that include all the people I hate? LOL! Well, here's some of the things I truly, absolutely, positively, most definitely hate :
  • Food I hate : Anything that's from inside an animal !! Urgghhh !!!
  • Fruit I hate : I would have to say pineapples. Looks too dangerous to eat :)
  • Veggies I hate : Petai (is that even a vegetable?)
  • Celebrities/People that I hate : Paris Hilton, Paris Hilton & Paris Hilton.
  • Event/Situation/Incident that I hate : Working, but the bills have to be paid ... sigghhhhhhh!!!!!
  • TV shows/movies that I hate : Those bad Malay soaps. Man, you should hear the dialogue ...
  • Music I hate : Dangdut!
  • Household chores that I hate : taking out the garbage.
  • Things that you hate around the world : War. Give peace a chance!
  • Things that you hate about yourself : Laziness.
For the other 1,000 things things I hate, please visit my blog at hate-the-world.com .... LOL! Ok, now here's a few more unsuspecting victims that I'm gonna make reveal thier hatred for all things out there :)

Tag No. 3 - The Love Link!

The final tag I have is a love link from both Nessa and Bobo. Writing just a paragraph wouldn't do justice to them at all, go visit their blogs and you will see what I mean :)

1. Write a short paragraph at the beginning of your post and link back to the blog that put you on the list.
2. Copy the list of originals below COMPLETELY and add it to your blog. If you would like a different keyword for your blog then change it when you do your post and it should pass to most blogs with that keyword.
3. Take the adds from the blog that added you and place them in the 'Originals' list.
4. Add at least 1 new blog that you KNOW is using the DO FOLLOW plugin to the list in the 'My Adds' section. (Add no more than 5!) Let the people you've added know, so that they can keep the list going.

  7. Nick! I'm not a fan of petai either and hey... I forgot all about dangdut LOL! ;)

    Oh yeah, it's great that u tagged Adrian on the Face behind the Blog thingy... Homer..come out come out wherever you are! :D

  8. I didn't realize so many people didn't show their faces! :))

    I agree with Mariuca it would be great to see Adrian! Marathon man you're a hunk! :)

    Thanks for the tag!


  9. I meant to say you look like a marathon man! LOL! I left that part out! Someone is working too hard!

    Thanks again!


  10. Marzie, how could you forget dangdut? LOL! It drives me up the wall listening to it.

    Yeah, Homer, come out, come out wherever you are !!!

    Lis, Camera shy? Well, I'm the same, that's why I don't have any pictures of me online at all ...

    Ann, How I wish I did look like a real marathon man, at least then that would justify all the running I've been doing ...

  11. Hey Bud, don't try to butter me up about me looking like Arnie...I look much better LOL

    Marzie and Ann! Hmmm...isn't it better if I remain a mystery? LOL

  12. Homer, we want your pix! Homer, we want your pix! Homer, we want your pix! Buddy, hurry, I can't keep your adoring fans at bay any longer ... argghh, no, no, help ... hehehehe ...

  13. Gotta give me a little time over this mate. I'll do this from Singapore cos I gotta do some running around before I jump on the bus south!

  14. Where is NICK? That is not NICK.... What I imagine of NICK is so MUCH BETTER than that man.... LOL....
    Looks like this tag still cant get to see you huh...hmmmmmm :) :)

    I sure know you will tag Adrian...hahaha :D

  15. Hui Sen, no probs buddy. Take your time. You're going to Singapore again? Cool ...

    Janice - what to do, I really don't have any pix of me la, like Lis said, I'm camera shy too ... LOL! Of cos I'll give it to Adrian, I'm sure he has pictures of himself ...

  16. LOL! Homer! Homer! Expose yourself!! LOL!

    nick, u hate petai? i love it when it's cook wt sambal. but i can only eat the most 5-7 petai. yes, it's 5-7 biji petai, not the whole stick. If i eat too much, i'll have foul pee.. :P

  17. Hey Nick...thanks for the tag. Will take care of it tomorrow. I have been regrouping and now I am back..

  18. LOL! I am not a big Paris Hilton fan either, but you REALLY aren't! I do the same thing when I get tagged! I usually sit on them for a week or so before I get around to reposting! Remember that in case you ever tag me! P.S.-I like the non-picture of you! Very funny! Take care!

  19. Wow Nick. That's quite a mouthful :)

  20. Jean, I definitely cannot stand petai cooked in any form whatsoever, especially the smell. I'd feel like puking! Yeah, Homer, come on, time to expose yourself ... LOL!

    Diamond - You're welcome, was wondering what happened to you. glad to have you back.

    Barrett, We're all procrastinators in some form or other. I think I still have one or two more tags to do. Yeah, I like the non-picture of me too ... hehehe ... Down with Paris Hilton! Down with Paris Hilton ... LOL!

    Sharon, mouthful is an understatement. My fingers hurt from all that typing ...

  21. Ha ha ha, Homer time to expose yourself indeed!

    Nick, my sister once tricked me to eat petai by hiding it in my rice!! It was NOT a pleasant experience at all! LOL ;)

  22. Marzie, I know how that feels, I had a friend who put liver (gross) in instant noddles and said it was beef and I, like the stupid blur case that I am, actually ate it and was chewing nicely until I finally realized what it was ... arggghhh!!

  23. Tagged! Ack!! LOL
    OK, got a regular feature tommorrow, so will let rip with the hatred on monday - Oh, good day for it!
    Cheers Mate!

  24. Lavender - take your time with the tag, as long as it's finally posted ... LOL!

  25. Ha ha ha ha, I can just imagine ur face when you found out it wasn't beef! Liver in instant noodles... how did that taste?

    And u know la the petai taste and smell, hard to get rid off, spoiled my appetite the whole day! :)

  26. Marzie, it tasted like @#$%$^%^*&! and that good buddy of mine had a hand in it as well. I couldn't believe I fell for it when they told me it was beef! Man, I was really gullible in those days ... (Adrian, I'm still so gonna get you for this. LOL!)

  27. Thank you very much for the link love. Its great to see the list still alive and that it has traveled so far.

    I recently moved from www.petersen-inc.dk to www.thebetanews.com and changed name from Petersen Inc (which I use as a private blog now) to The Beta News.

    Could I persuade you to do me a favour? Change the name from Petersen Inc to The Beta News and the link to: http://www.thebetanews.com/the-face-behind-the-blog/

    Thank you very much :-)

  28. Ha ha ha, why am I not surprised that ur buddy had a hand in it?!! But hey, if u do get him back, at least he can't get mad at you! So what are u planning to do? ;)

  29. Hey Dennis - thanx for the heads-up. Will change the link as advised.

    Marzie - We've pulled some pretty nasty stunts on each other before. I haven't thought of an idea just yet, but I most definitely will and it's gonna be something so evil even Megatron would be proud off ... LOL!

  30. Nick, after ur buddy tagged u AGAIN on the Face behind the Blog, I bet ur really gonna make him pay for it now! You guys make me laugh :):)

  31. Oh, that filthy boy is so going to pay for this, Marzie! I just gotta think of something really devious la ... LOL!

  32. LOL! Ok, if u DO do somethin' devious don forget to write about it! ;)

  33. Marzie! You little she-devil you! :) On my blog you encourage me to get Nick to post his pic and on his blog you encourage him to get even with me for doing just that! Ohhhh you are so devious! me like! LOL

    Nick! She's out to get us both! And having fun doing it too! LOL HMmm maybe we should get nasty with her! LOL Lets think up something and Marzie we'll be sure to post it! LOL

  34. Oh no Adrian u caught me ha ha ha!!! Of course I've to bug Nick, u did put liver in his noodles what! ha ha ha.. but i know u Adrian, being so sweet and all u just wont have the heart to get me back! HUGS for both of u for being such cool buddies :):):)

    PS. And I still want to see Nick's pic LOL! ;)

  35. Marzie, If I do something devious to that good buddy of mine, the whole blogsphere is gonna know ... LOL!

    Adrian, hmmm, you could have a good point here buddy. LOL! Call me and we'll discuss some devious stunt for her in return ... LOL!
