Ummm... Hi there... heh...
OK! I have a sneaking suspicion that I might just be a cruise freek. But I haven't been on one yet so I can't confirm! But I'm amazed at the ships size, accommodations, great food, love the thought of being out in the open see with all kinds of new interesting people to get to know, and food I keep hearing about, and the excursions and relaxation, and food, and dancing... did I mention food? (The food thing is all your fault btw! It seems like every post here turns to food somehow, and then it turns to what kind of food is on cruise ships, and then you post pictures, then I just end up hungry and drooling while I eat my pop-tarts for dinner) ;p heh..
Anyway! As my name indicates I'm from Utah. My name is Shawn and my wifes name is Erin. We just celebrated our 10 year anniversary Jan 1st of this year!!! WOOT We're both 28 years old, (Erin Oct 29th, Myself June 4th) and yes that means we were married at 18 (it's common in Utah) we were high school sweethearts and we have a TON of fun together. Two children, my girl Avery (7yrs old) is a princess and a really girly girl, and my boy Carter (6yrs old) is a freaking stud and is the complete definition of a little turd. Honestly I have the most fun ever with my wife and 2 kids, they're my best friends and we have SUCH a good time together I love em all to death.
My life story is complicated but pretty un-eventful, a lot of moving, a lot of jobs up until 7 years ago. Was with Stock Building Supply for 7 years and just got laid off about 3 weeks ago. I'm now running my own business in computer repair. It's brand new, but it's already picking up speed and my reputation is growing faster than I anticipated, so I'm loving it, and wondering if me being laid off was one of the best things that ever happened to me. I'll try to get Erin to do a little bio on here for herself too, but no promises, getting her to slow down to do anything that takes more than 20 seconds is a chore.
I noticed something reading through this thread though, and I think I might like this board because I feel so young here. Aside from Jennifer I think we're the youngest I've seen so far. How do you guys put up with young whipper snappers like me?
Other than that, I found this quiz in my e-mail so anything else you guys need to know I'm sure you can find it in here.First Name?
Shawn.Were you named after someone?
Nope, my middle name after my father though.When was the last time you cried?
PSHAH! Men don't cry, we grit our teeth and make noises like we're in labor and sound like we're trying to breath through a coffee straw, but we don't cry... and I haven't made those noises for a long time I'm proud to admit.Favorite Lunch Meat?
Yes PleaseDo you still have your tonsils?
NO but this is an interesting question, because the surgery to get them out almost killed me! Never thought it was such a dangerous procedure!Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Not if I don't have to!Favorite Ice Cream Flavor?
Oh Oh! It used to be some Banana Rendevous or something from Cold Stone... now I'm restricted because of my Spark People team! ;pShoe Size?
What in the WORLD does that matter? 12... Does that mean anything special? Maybe if you take me bowling you can get my rental shoes ready for me now!Red or Pink?
... ... . Wait is this quiz for girls? Where's the questions like Deer Hunting? or Duck Hunting? I guess if I have to choose I'm going with Red.Who do you miss the most?
Umm.. Chris Farley! RIP David Spade will never be funny again now that you're gone.Last thing you ate?
CRAP... is my spark people team reading this?? .. It was a little thing of Sixlets. C'mon guys it was a little pack that has like 6 little choc sixlet candies.. and I only ate like... 3 of them. LoL.. maybe this quiz thing wasn't such a good idea after all.If you were a Crayon which color would you be?

.. Ok is this almost over yet?What did you watch last night?
The computer screen while I re-installed windows on another PCFavorite Sounds?
Now this is an interesting one! I'd have to say #1 Rain and Thunder, I always open my window on a rainy night. (Good old Eddie Rabbit, great song!) Being an outdoor nut I love the peace and queit of the outdoors and a crackling fire. I guess nothing can outdo my childrens laughter though.Furthest you've been from home?

hmmm... I guess I'm handy with computers... good at video games... can handle lots of liquor. Is stubborn a talent?Favorite singer right now?

Untouched by The Veronicas... yeah I know it's kind of a weird choice for a guy like me, but something about it I really like.What scares you?
Ha me?? I'm not scared of nuttin'!! .. yeah.. actually I'm not necessarily scared of them I guess, but I hate snakes and spiders... not fond of heights either. But my only real FEAR I think is losing one of my family. I don't fear my own death, but I fear theirs more than anything.One thing you want to do before you die?
Easy, tour Scotland with my family and see some of the old castles still standing that my ancestors helped build while cruising the land and seeing all the sites. I'm a big William Wallace history buff too.
Since they didn't ask it Deer Hunting or Duck Hunting?
Wow that was a lot longer than I thought it was going to be... heh.. Sorry about that!
