About Twindaddy

What?  You actually clicked on this link?  Are you actually interested in learning about me or are you just being nice?

Okay, well since you’re here I guess I can tell you a few things.

I’m just a regular stormtrooper trying to make his way through the galaxy. I think I’m funny, which is funny. I also think that I’m a somewhat decent writer, and the web bots agree. Check out this wonderful comment I received:

I identified your weblog internet site on google and check a couple of of your early posts. Proceed to sustain up the superb operate. I just additional up your RSS feed to my MSN Data Reader. In search of forward to reading extra from you later on!

See? This person was so in awe after reading one of my superb and unshitty posts that he or she couldn’t form a coherent sentence. So please read some of my work so you too can be reduced to an incoherent, babbling idiot.

Long live the Emperor!

Seriously, though, I was born in Detroit (Motor City, bitches!), Michigan.  Sure, Detroit is known for Mo’town, Eminem, Kid Rock, General Motors, and Ford…

but wait ’til the get a load of me.

I spent most of my childhood moving from town to town, and that sadly was not the result of being in a military family.  My father just accepted transfer after transfer.  For reasons unbeknownst to me.  I’ve lived in the Detroit, Toledo, Cincinnati, Louisville, and Atlanta metro areas.  And Washington Court House, OH.

What?  You don’t know where that is?  Don’t worry, you’re not missing much.  You can Google™ it.  If you’re really, really bored.  And enjoy looking for a needle in a haystack.

I finally settled down just south of Cincinnati about 13 years ago right before my twins were born.

*audible gasp*  You have twins?  (That’s my least favorite question, by the way.)

Of course I do.  I certainly didn’t pick this name because it’s awesome…even though it is.

I have 13-year old 14-year old (help! they keep getting older!) twin boys.  Scratch that.  I guess they’re young men, now.  Oy vey, I’m getting old.  My twins have, for the purposes of this blog, been dubbed Baby A and Baby B.

I also have a 3-year old son who is crazy-funny.  And yes, I just made that not-so-contracted contraction up, because he’s that damn crazy-funny.  He is hilarious.  Like me.  His name, again for the purposes of this blog, is Baby C.

There’s really no rhyme or reason to the things I blog about.  I try to be funny, but I try to be real, too.  I might bust out a Daily Prompt post. I might write about a funny situation. I might write about something that happened to me long ago. Or I might write about suicide, depression, or abuse. There aren’t many topics from which I’ll shy away.

I’m a Star Wars nerd.  I realize you probably already knew that since my avatar is a stormtrooper, but I figured I’d tell you on the off-chance that your dunce-cap prevented you from deducing that.  I have two entire bookshelves dedicated to displaying my Star Wars nerdiness.  The bookshelves are filled with books (duh), collectibles, and toys.  I also have a few framed pictures that hang on the wall above the bookshelves.  I was slightly out of control for a while, but I’m recovering fine now, thanks.

I like to play most sports, but the only sports I truly follow are NFL and NCAA football, and even so I haven’t been doing it all that religiously the older I get.  Since I spent my formative years growing up in a suburb of Cincinnati, I’m a Bengals fan.  Please pity me.  I also root for my hometown team, though.  I’d love for the Lions to be a great team again.  Yeah, I know.  Both of my teams suck.

My collegiate team of choice is the Michigan Wolverines, because, obviously, I’m from Michigan.  Also, Kentucky’s football program sucks so I never had any reason to root for them.  But that’s okay, at least I root for one team that consistently wins.

I started this blog as a project.  I was dabbling around and seeing if I could create a web-server.  I couldn’t really think of anything to do with my web-server so I started a blog, just to see if I could.  I successfully created and hosted my own website and blog, until my ISP shut me down.   Evidently, my ISP frowns upon me self-hosting a site without paying a premium rate to do so.

What I found while I was running this self-hosted blog for the two-months I ran it before it was shut down was that I like to write.  So once my site was shut down I imported all of my posts to WordPress and continued blogging.  Once on WordPress, I found an entire community of great bloggers, and writers, and have made some pretty good blogging buddies.

I’m truly glad to have discovered blogging and even more so that people actually read what I write now.

Feel free to comment and tell me about yourself!

  2. Yay, Star Wars! Girl geek here and mother of geek girls (youngest dressed up as Princess Leia for Halloween). I call mine Thing One and Thing Two. We have the nicest names for our kids. Thank goodness they are not twins. They are 12 and 8. Wow – 13 and 1? Teen and toddler. What fun!

    • It actually is pretty fun…most of the time.

      One of the twins dressed up as Obi-Wan Kenobi for Halloween when they actually dressed up for Halloween. I remember I went as Han Solo one year as a kid and Luke Skywalker on another.

      We all love Star Wars in my household. Well, except for my wife. She’s somewhat indifferent, but tolerates it. lol

  6. I will never watch Pitch Perfect again and not think of you when I see the Star Wars bedroom!!

    I’m sure you can tell I love your sense of humor, it mirrors mine and it’s nice to find people to spar with. I too love the NFL and am a Chargers fan. I run a football pool during the regular season and we are heading into week 2 of the playoff pool. The regular season pool is pretty good – 65 people at $250.00 each….and I finally took first place this year!! (I’m typing this from my new laptop!!) I’m now going to get sharpener out so my wit is razor sharp the next time we meet!! :)

  8. I deeply apologize for making my first question to you being about twins. It is also my most hated question even though half my blog and 98% of my life is about my twins. Now that my first apology (of probably thousands, I am Canadian after all) is out of the way, can I try on your storm trooper hat? Or does that violate some sort of Star Wars code? I am new to the ways of the Star Wars.

  9. TD,
    I read this bio a while back but just got around to contributing to the comment stream.
    Despite those things you said in the recent competition that seems to have fizzled, I like you. I like your blog. I like your sense of humor. I like the way you think.
    That is all.

  10. What? Wait. Bengals-pity? Idunno, Tampa Bay has always been my team, even though I hail from the mighty state of N.Y. It’s a long story. Anyway, they were my team way before they won the one bowl. *snickering* and they will always be my team. I think it had something to do with hanging-out with Vietnam Vets, during my formative years. (snickering again.) I like cars, trucks, and motorcycles, too. I’m strange like that. It took me a while to make it to your blog. It was definitely worth the wait. Glad to hear the heavy is lifting a bit, for you and yours. Peace.

  13. My favourite kinds of blogs are those written by people who actually have a talent for writing. And even though I’m not a Star Wars fan, and know nothing about all those sports you mentioned (Moto GP, anyone??), I am sold. Also, I think I’m babbling. Perhaps not incoherently but surely it counts.

  23. Question: did the twins knock you down it took that many years to have a 3rd? All 3 of my kiddos are close in age. The oldest less than 4 when 3rd was born… Just curious. First two were day short of 18 months and when 3rd was born I can’t remember much… So busy! Twins are cool! My grandpa was a twin.

  24. The only baseball game I’ve ever been to was to watch the Tigers in Detroit in the summer of 1990. I was 16 and spending a summer working on a friend’s farm just outside Grass Lake. Not that remarkable, I hear you say. Except I was a 16-year old from rural Ireland and the child of hippies – how the hell did I end up in the Godforsaken midwest of the US of A?

    I actually enjoyed myself immensely and will always have a fondness for Michigan, Detroit, Grass Lake and of course, Ann Arbor. I now feel obliged, out of undiluted sentimentality, to follow your blog.

    Great stuph.

  29. Love your stuph! I’m a fairly new blogger and hopped over here to see who/what my friends read. So glad I did!
    Your “about” page had me belly laughing and playing right along. I love all things football (High School/NCAA/NFL in that order) and my kiddos–not twins, but way too old to be called Baby Girl A (19) and Baby Boy B (14)–though, I still do sometimes just cuz I want to.
    I look forward to reading more TwinDaddy!!
