On Sharing Some Things About Me

A meme about me, stolen from a dozen friends — Keith, Lisa, Geoff, the guy in the blue suit, the guy snorting dandelions, the Dread Pirate Roberts…

Okay, I made up the last one. He’s probably still off the coast of Patagonia. But if he were here, he’d probably do it!

Welcome to the new 2008 edition of getting to know your friends! Here is what you are supposed to do, and try not to be lame and spoil the fun. Change all the answers so that they apply to you.

  1. What is your occupation right now?
    I write a product catalog for a major pop culture company.
  2. What color are your socks right now?
    I’m not wearing socks. I only wear socks when I have to. Since I’m not at work — and thus, don’t need socks — I am sockless.
  3. What are you listening to right now?
    Two fans. One is the ceiling fan in the office. The other is the giant floor fan in my bedroom. Also, I hear someone working a keyboard somewhere nearby.
  4. What was the last thing that you ate?
  5. Can you drive a stick shift?
    I cannot.
  6. Last person you spoke to on the phone?
    Best guess? My sister, a few days ago.
  7. Do you like the person who sent this to you?
    I do like the people who did this, yes.
  8. How old are you today?
  9. What is your favorite sport to watch?
  10. What is your favorite drink?
    Cream soda.
  11. Have you ever dyed your hair?
    I have not.
  12. Favorite food?
    No real favorites. Though I could probably eat lime sherbert every single day.
  13. What is the last movie you watched?
    The Dark Knight.
  14. Favorite day of the year?
    The first day of Shore Leave.
  15. How do you vent anger?
    I blow shit up. In video games, that is. Or, I write the target of my anger into something I’m writing. Then I can be a sadist.
  16. What was your favorite toy as a child?
  17. What is your favorite season?
    I really like early autumn.
  18. Cherries or Blueberries?
    Definitely blueberries.
  19. Do you want your friends to e-mail you back?
    No, I like shouting into the wind. Yes, that’s sarcasm.
  20. Who is the most likely to respond?
    Respond to… what?
  21. Who is least likely to respond?
    The person I never talked to.
  22. Living arrangements?
  23. When was the last time you cried?
    The ending of The Dark Knight, actually.
  24. What is on the floor of your closet?
    Some boxes, I think.
  25. Who is the friend you have had the longest that you are sending this to?
    Realistically, I’m not sending this to anyone. But there are likely people reading this who have known me for over a decade. Perhaps even two.
  26. What did you do last night?
    Worked until about 8 at the office. Went to the mall. Bought some supplies for the new cubicle.
  27. What inspires you?
    I find inspiration in a lot of places.
  28. What are you most afraid of?
  29. Plain, cheese or spicy hamburgers?
    Cheeseburger. But not spicy.
  30. Favorite dog breed?
    I’m indifferent to dogs.
  31. Favorite day of the week?
    I take each as it comes.
  32. How many states have you lived in?

Now you know. And knowing is half the battle. 🙂
