Muley's List

Mike's Common Sense

I have noticed that everyone is writing their list about themselves, so I thought I would join in. I must warn you that I am a Virgo, and that my natal chart says that I am too open to others about myself (so expect a long list). Sigh, oh well here we go.

1) I am the second of three sons all one year apart in age, and I have two twin sisters five years younger than me.


2) I have always been very athletic, and active in sports.


3) My dream job has always been to be a stand-up comedian.


4) I starred in two operettas, and always had a solo song as a member of chorus in elementary school.


5) I still love to sing, and love to go to karaoke.


6) I am a former disc jockey


7) I am a rock-n-roll historian with a huge record collection.


8) I wrestled in high school and college, but never really liked it; I was just good at it.


9) Football was my best, and favorite sport to play. If I had grown to be as big as my dad, 6' 2" 235lbs, I would have played in the NFL.


10) I am 5' 10" and weigh 200 (oops).


11) I have a B.A. in psychology, with minors in History, and English.


12) I had my first ESP experience at age 10.


13) I am an expert on ESP, parapsychology, the occult, and the arcane.


14) I do N.Y. Times crossword puzzles during lunch at work.


15) I like cold beer, bourbon, and cigars.


16) I coached a woman's football team in college.


17) I have a high I.Q. and don't really fit in with others. I am basically a loner.


18) I have been a recreational runner for over twenty three years and have run the circumference of the earth (25,000 miles) .

19) I have completed five marathons.

20) I have two kids, a boy, and a girl, aged 29, and 27 respectively.

21) I have been in the airline profession since 1976.


22) I am embarrassed to admit that of almost 220 articles, the most read is "Big Butts" with over 50,000 readers world wide.


23) I do like to party and have a good time.


24) I own a pot bellied pig, his name is Wilbur.


25) I have written an e-book "The True Adventures of Wilbur the Pig" which can be purchase at lulu.com for a mere $1.99 (cheap). It is true, and it is funny.


26) I played drums in the University of Miami Band of the Hour.


27) I have been an Oakland/Los Angles/Oakland Raiders fan since 1966.


28) I am a University of Miami football fan.


29) I have had many out of body experiences, and lucid dreams.


30) I know I am soul, and I am not afraid of death.


31) I am a happily married man, and have been married over twelve years.


Well there it is. I hope after learning all the inside info on me we can still be friends. Mike

Hi Feline! I have been a Mike (actually Michael) all of my life. I got the nickname muley because I have a long German last name, Muehleisen pronounced mule-isen, hence muley.

Dear muley,

Quite an impressive list. I would never have guessed you to be a loner type. You are such a down to earth writer, and I admire that. I share your love of the occult, that you have a pet pig, and that you keep yourself physically and mentally fit. I try with the mental part but fall short on the physical lol.

I often wondered how you came up with your name, now I know :)

How lucky your sisters are to have three older brothers. I have no sisters and one brother, four years older than me. Although it would have been nice, I think, to have had a birth sister, having my brother has been a blessing. I am fortunate to have a life-long friend that I consider a sister, so I do have the best of both.

Now you've inspired me to put out my list. I'll have to give it a lot of thought.

One question for you, why are all the good ones taken? :)

Nice to get more information in the man behind the words. :) My s/o is a Virgo so I know how detailed Virgos can be, and focused when something catches their interest.

Hi Trish, I am basically a loner because I really am not into gossiping, complaining, and other things that the groups at work are into. I am much more comfortable in one on one situations. I started running because I do like to quaff a couple of cold ones every day and do not want to be 300lbs. lol

Hi Nemaste! Well I imagine you have no problem keeping your s/o's focus and attention. Thanks for stopping by.

Following the beat of your own drummer is often the way to go :)

You were big emough, fast enough, coordinated and mean enough! If you had been in a school with a program like Cal-Mum or Canadiagua you might have been dedicated enought to play college ball or more.

Love ya

Known you all these years and had no idea on a lot of your list, though some I am familiar with :)

Hi Georgia! Well, we were cousins in law for quite a while, but most of this info my cousins don't know about me...unless they read my articles and I don't know it.
