The Boy Behind the Blog

Today is a special day. Today you all have the very special treat of reading a blog post written by the boy behind Ten Feet Off Beale. Honestly, without him this blog would be completely different. He comes up with a bunch of my ideas and takes most of my pictures and is simply just the best.

When I saw the Boys Behind the Blog linkup, I knewwww I was going to get Jeremy to participate. Now, without further ado, go ahead and read how Jeremy answered this month's questions! I think they're pretty great, if I do say so myself.

1. What would you do with $1,000,000?  

I can honestly say that I don't think my life would be that much different if a million dollars dropped in my lap. I like my life. I like where I live. I like my job. I guess I'm a pretty content person. However, there are some things I could probably find to spend some money on. I would definitely pay off all my debt first and after some shrewd investing, to make sure me and the future Mrs. Long were taken care of, I'd have a little fun. I'd definitely plan a month long vacation (I think I deserve one) and do some serious relaxing on a beach. Next would probably be that elusive 4 door Jeep Wrangler I've been eyeing at the dealership we pass every Sunday, THEY'RE SO PRETTY! I'd buy Harrison the biggest deer antler he could chew, Alyssa a $1,000 gift card to Michael's, my parents several round trip plane tickets to Austin, TX to see the soon to arrive new grandchild and I might even buy the cat (aka Mittens, Dexter or Hey You) a new toy.

2. What is your dream job? 

I think my ultimate dream job would have to be CEO of the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey club. I'm a huge Penguins fan, always have been and always will be. I live with each hit, goal, win and loss (much to the dismay of those around me when we lose big games). I love my Penguins, so that would have to be my dream job. In a more realistic world, I hope to one day be an Executive Director of a YMCA here in Memphis. That's my goal and that's what I'm shooting for. I guess we'll see if I get there. 

3. Who is your celebrity crush? 

If I'm being honest I'm going to have to say Christina Aguilera. Don't ask me why or how. The answer is what it is people, let's move on. 

4. What is your favorite sports team? 

This one's tough. It really does depend on the season, but one thing that doesn't change is my passion and love for my teams. I LOVE my sports teams, sometimes to a fault. If they do well, I'm doing well. If they aren't doing so hot, neither am I. It's a bad way to be and I think I may cross that line from passionate to obsessive, but that's just me. I'm just being honest. So here we go. Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh Pirates, Indianapolis Colts, Memphis Grizzlies, Memphis Tigers and Auburn Tigers. You get all that? Good! 

5. What was your AOL/AIM screen name back in the day? 

I remember when AOL/ AIM chatting was the cool thing to do... I was in high school... and had a car... and friends with cars... so we all just drove to see each other. Problem solved. I'm old.

  1. Christina Aguilera? hahahaha! Too funny!
    And the car thing -- gessh! I wish I had been old enough to have a car! My screen names were terrible -- and my AOL profile was always full of the most awful love quotes!

    You've got yourself a good one! Quite handsome ma'am!


  2. a] War Eagle! [thank God Jeremy didn't shout-out the University of Alabama...otherwise I might have had to stop reading your blog. I can't stand that school!]
    b] soon to arrive new grandchild? ;) sounds like someone is making a bunch of future plans.
    c] I seriously laughed out loud when Jeremy called the Jeeps "pretty." oh boys...

    I liked getting to know him a bit better! Jeremy definitely seems like a keeper :)

  3. I'm cracking up at the Christina answer LOL!

  4. I love these series! <3 So fun to get to know those boys!!

  5. I like his answer to #1 :) My husband could really care less about having a million dollars either. He really had to think hard about that one.

  6. Great post! My boyfriend responded the same way with the first question paying debts and investing. I invite you to stop by and take a look =)


  7. Such an awesome post! I really like his answer to number 1 and the last one!



  8. Yeah my husband didn't do the aim thing either...I think the age difference is a factor. I was ALL over AIM back in the day!

  9. You only get $1000? I think you need to have a talk with him!

  10. Ha! these answers are great, you can totally get a sense of his personality :) Michael's gift card? Yes. Excellent. This guy is a keeper!


I appreciate each and every comment!! I love hearing from my readers :)
