It Was Bound To Happen

Y'all know I love quizzes and surveys, right? Unfortunately for all y'all, my new job actually keeps me fairly busy and I don't have time to sit on the global intarwebs all day doing quizzes and filling you in on how much more rad I am than you are.

But the funny and delightfully fuzzy (I only know from pictures, not personal experience.) Michael Hartney posted one of those "You Ask Too Many Questions" things and so I'm copying him just to give some link love and to... well, do something before I go to bed tonight that doesn't involve trading quips with Matt Chancellor or Britton in my comments.

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?

"Shave? Well, I should look good for those parties. But can't I look good with light scruffage? No, I really can't because it doesn't cover my entire face like most adult human males. So, shave, right? That means I have to get back into the shower. How is it that I'm late this morning when I've been up for two hours already? So, no shave? If I want that new job, I should do a little better to make a good impression, like, I dunno, showing up on time. Shave? No shave? Answer me here. You know what, though? I have my doubts that they'll pay me what I want and if they question the time I roll into the office, we should perhaps have a conversation about the time I roll out of the office. Ok. I'm not shaving. The rest of you can do what you want, but I need to get this show on the road. I wonder if I should get my new pants hemmed..."

It actually went downhill from there.

2. How much cash do you have on you?

No cash.

3. What's a word that rhymes with "DOOR?"

Christiana Amanpour. I don't know why.

4. Favorite planet?

Whichever one is currently falling under my control. I think it's a blue one this time.

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?

Karla. It was about dancing.

6. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone?

The one that sounds like a buncha clicks. It makes people go, "What the eff was that?"

7. What shirt are you wearing?

Shirt? Naw, baby, I ain't wearin' no shirt. This is all man.

8. Do you "label" yourself?

I really don't like getting glue on my skin.

9. Name the brand of the shoes you're currently wearing?

Shoes? Naw, baby, I ain't wearin' no shoes. This is all Britney.

10. Bright or dark room?

Where? When? I haven't been to school in a while, but I don't think this qualifies as a real question. What if the room isn't bright or dark, but kind of in the middle.

11. What do you think about the person who took this survey before you?

I believe I mentioned the funniness and the fuzziness. What more do you want?

12. What does your watch look like?

There's one with a black leather band.

13. What were you doing at midnight last night?


14. What did your last text message you received on your cell say?

"Hey, thanks for coming with me to my party. You are a sweetheart. Party hard!!!"

15. Where is your nearest 7-11?

I have no idea.

16. What's a word that you say a lot?


17. Who told you he/she loved you last?

My mom.

18. Last furry thing you touched?

A furry vest in Anne Taylor Loft. It was also partly shiny and gold. How could I not touch it?

19. How many drugs have you done in the last three days?

No drugs that aren't in the food I've eaten.

20. How many rolls of film do you need developed?

I'll tell you as soon as you make twelve copies of this survey, mail it to 11 friends and send one copy back to me.

21. Favorite age you have been so far?

24 rocked. 29 is rocking MUCH HARDER.

22. Your worst enemy?

The person who made this lotto commercial of children screaming at the top of their lungs.

23. What is your current desktop picture?

A Jim Lee drawing of Superman is on at work. Here at home it's a picture of a city by Mike Belin.

24. What was the last thing you said to someone?


25. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly what would it be?


26. Do you like someone?

Like like or just like?

27. The last song you listened to?

"Baby, it's cold outside" sung by Johnny Mercer and Margaret Whiting. What? I like that song.

28. What time of day were you born?


29. What's your favorite number?

In order from favorite to least of the single digit numbers: 3, 7, 9, 2, 5, 0, 1, 8, 4, 6

30. Where did you live in 1987?

Gumbranch, Georgia (It's a real place.) The exact place where I lived, however, is not.

31. Are you jealous of anyone?

Yeah, there's this hot guy at work who also has a job I want. I think wanting to sleep with him and take his job kind of qualifies as jealousy, right?

32. Is anyone jealous of you?

I'm not sure. I hadn't thought about it, but you know I'm pretty sure I did mention how rad I am.

33. Where were you when 9/11 happened?

I was sitting in the corner desk in my office in Athens, GA.

34. What do you do when vending machines steal your money?

The last time I did that, I tipped it back and forth until it dropped my snack.

35. Do you consider yourself kind?

No. I don't think about it much.

36. If you had to get a tattoo, where would it be?

On my shoulder.

37. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be?

In order: Spanish, German, French, Italian, Russian, Hebrew, Greek, Latin

38. Would you move for the person you loved?

Sure. I'd even wave my arms around frantically and make a sound like "whacka-whacka-whacka-whacka" if they wanted me to.

39. Are you touchy-feely?

In certain contexts.

40. What's your life motto?

"The only thing I did wrong is I stayed in Mississippi a day too long." Actually that's a Dylan song. My mom always told me, "you can do anything you set your mind to." I tend to say, "If you aren't having fun, you're doing it wrong," but I also say, "If you can't find something to complain about, you're doing it wrong."

41. Name three things that you have on you at all times?

Some means of telling time, credit/ATM card, keys.

42. What's your favorite town/city?

New York City.

43. What was the last thing you paid for with cash?

I gave my friend the $2 I had in my wallet because he had to buy my sour patch kids at the movies because their credit card machine was broken. Bastards!

44. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper and mailed it?

1999, I think.

45. Can you change the oil on a car?

Yes, but I make it a point to be the sort of person who appears as if they can't. I can also change a tire, drive a dump truck, drive a fork lift, drive a back hoe, use power tools, solder, rewire a lamp, and kick ass.

46. Your first love: what is the last thing you heard about him/her?

Her husband has joined the Army.

47. How far back do you know about your ancestry?

To the point that they came to the US from Ireland in the 1860's. Prior to that, they lived in Ireland for a hundred years and before that they lived in Scotland where our family was a sept of the clain McDonald in Aiyershire. So, roughly five hundred years or so.

48. The last time you dressed fancy, what did you wear and why did you dress fancy?

"Fancy?" I wore a black suit to work today, actually. Under that I wore a grey sweater and under that I wore a light blue shirt.

49. Does anything hurt on your body right now?

My abs are kind of sore.

50. Have you been burned by love?

Yes and, upon reflection, I really was more trouble than I was worth.

What, trading quips with me isn't enough?
