A meme? Here?  

I usually feel pretty apathetic about these types of things, that get passed around from journal to journal, but I figured on this one - what the hell.  I got it from

schrutefan, who got it from somewhere else, where I think it was snagged from yet somewhere else.  Anyway, on with it below the cuttage:

 

 

Random questions:

1. WHAT CURSE WORD DO YOU USE THE MOST?
Probably "sonofaBITCH".  All together and emphasized like that. "Fucking asshole" is familiar, as well.  My geek side comes through with "gorram" and "frak" more frequently now, too.

2. DO YOU OWN AN IPOD?
Yes.  But only because my brother's girlfriend Lisa had extras as swag she got after leaving a cruise ship job, and she gave me one to "borrow" - then said I could keep it.  And it's just the old style shuffle - 512MB.  It's fine for my time at the gym, holding about 7-8hrs worth of music, good for 4-5 workouts. And that is a long and boring answer.

3. WHAT PERSON ON YOUR FLIST DO YOU TALK TO THE MOST?
Cindy. 

4. WHAT TIME IS YOUR ALARM CLOCK SET TO?
5:15AM.  And it sucks.

5. DO YOU STILL REMEMBER THE FIRST PERSON YOU KISSED?
Yes.  Sadly, no tongue involved - but it wasn't entirely awkward.  Nice and chaste, as adolescents are "supposed" to do it. I was a bit of a late-bloomer there, as were were 14 at the time - and nowadays, society presents us with pregnant 12-yr-olds.  Yikes.

6. DO YOU REMEMBER WHERE YOU WERE ON 9/11/01
Of course.  At work in the office I'm in now.  We had no live TV or radio coverage at that moment, and were just getting updates from news blurbs on the internet.  Once news came that things seemed too coordinated between NYC and D.C. to be random, all U.S. federal buildings like this one were evacuated and closed ASAP.  I think I had the next day off, IIRC - but spent it (like most people) stuck to the non-stop news coverage.

7. WOULD YOU RATHER TAKE THE PICTURE OR BE IN THE PICTURE?
Take the picture. I usually find it rare when I like a photo of myself.

8. WHAT WAS THE LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
The latest James Bond flick - Casino Royale.  It was actually quite decent - much better than the last couple of Brosnan Bond films, and definitely a nice re-launch to the franchise.  Daniel Craig sold me as a more physical, get-your-hands-dirty type of Bond.

9. DO ANY OF YOUR FRIENDS HAVE CHILDREN?
Yes.  And more will continue to be added to the list, I'm sure.  That kind of freaks me out from time to time (for myself, not them).

10. HAS ANYONE EVER CALLED YOU LAZY?
Not recently, but yeah - of course.

11. DO YOU EVER TAKE MEDICATION TO HELP YOU FALL ASLEEP?
Never.  Don't want to feel dependent upon something artificial. And I think Larry's response is true for most males: "Orgasms are good for putting me to sleep."  Word.

12. WHAT CD IS CURRENTLY IN YOUR CD PLAYER?
Ummm... in my car I have Evanescence - Fallen, Coldplay - X&Y, The Veronica Mars Soundtrack, Justin Timberlake - FutureSex/LoveSounds, The Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny Soundtrack, and The Killers - Hot Fuss.  I have no idea what's in my changer at home.

13. DO YOU PREFER REGULAR OR CHOCOLATE MILK?
Not commenting on the semen-talk from Larry's answer to this.  Nast-ay.  I gotta go with good 'ole regular milk.  I don't dislike chocolate - but it defeats the purpose.  And it must be at least 1% - skim milk is gray water, and just awful.  I go through a gallon of 2% (my preferred) in about 7-9 days by myself.

14. HAS ANYONE TOLD YOU A SECRET THIS WEEK?
*scratches head*  Ummm... Not that I can recall.  Unless, you know , I'm just that good, and it's a secret even from myself.

15. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD STARBUCKS?
Never. Not a coffee drinker at all, and probably never will be.  And they overcharge for everything anyway.  So glad not to be a part of the nation's caffeine addiction.

16. CAN YOU WHISTLE?
I can whistle passbly.  Not an expert or anything at the 'art of blowing', like Larry, but I can mimic a tune if I'm forced to.

17. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT THE OPPOSITE SEX?
Hilarity could easily work its way into this answer, but to be honest - probably the hair color, then when I can see their face, the eyes.  And every dude is a flat-out liar if he doesn't admit to scoping the body.  It's the first thing right along with the hair.  Many "butterfaces" are identified this way.

18. WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO?
The release of Superman Returns and Superman: The Ultimate Collection on DVD.  Please - I'm a geek.  And a Superman-whore to boot. This is expected.

19. DID YOU WATCH CARTOONS AS A CHILD?
I pity any child who never has or never did.  I don't know if I'd be the same man today were it not for Transformers, G.I. Joe, and He-Man.

23. DO YOU OWN ANY BAND T-SHIRTS?
A couple.  Not nearly as many as I do other fandom-related (TV and film) shirts.

24. WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING IN ONE HOUR?
Still slogging away here at work - hopefully being productive (unlike this very moment).

25. IS ANYONE IN LOVE WITH YOU?
Not to the best of my knowledge.  If anyone is, they sure are playing it close to the vest.

26. WHAT WAS THE LAST SONG YOU HEARD?
"Mr. Brightside" by The Killers - as I got out of my car this morning.

27. LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
*shrug*  Cannot recall a good "cry".  Although, plenty of quality TV and film has the potential to get me misty quite readily, fanboy that I am.

28. ARE YOU ON A DESKTOP COMPUTER OR A LAPTOP?
Here at work - desktop. At home - same.  Notebooks are too small for my regular use (I'm sort of a giant to some).

29. ARE YOU CURRENTLY WANTING ANY PIERCINGS OR TATTOOS?
Not really.  I thought about a tattoo of the Superman "S" on one of my delts, but haven't contemplated it recently. No piercings ever.

30. WHAT'S THE WEATHER LIKE?
It's actually quite nice - sunny and clear, in the high 60's.  I frakkin' wish I was outside instead of stuck in here, gorrammit!

31. WOULD YOU EVER DATE A GIRL/GUY COVERED IN TATTOOS?
Probably not.  A few in strategic places can be very sexy on a beautiful woman, but to the point where large patches of skin gets covered - not attractive.

32. WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE THIS?
Vague that up a bit?  Ummm... job-wise, I was a financial aid advisor for a two-year vocational college.  Actual-doing-stuff-wise, I was on the phone with a claimant, after returning from my lunch break.

33. WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU SLEPT ON THE FLOOR?
Wow. I honestly can't remember.  It must have been on a trip to relatives' or something, but the actual event eludes me. Does that mean I'm really an adult now?

34. HOW MANY HOURS OF SLEEP DO YOU NEED TO FUNCTION?
I try to get 5 a night during the week.  I would like more, but I can function.

35. DO YOU EAT BREAKFAST DAILY?
Always.  Must have it, or may day goes all wonky.

36. ARE YOUR DAYS FAST-PACED?
Depends on the day, and how much of a shit-storm I have to put up with at work.  More often than not they move along pretty briskly, but some days are real fuckers and drag on forever - usually Fridays.

37. WHAT DID YOU DO LAST NIGHT?
I went to see Casino Royale with the fam. Then had Subway for dinner, and copied the hilarious sci-fi/horror/comedy Slither I rented and laughed through over the weekend. Nathan Fillion is THE MAN.  And I watched Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Desperate Housewives, Dexter, and Family Guy.  Quite a busy Sunday afternoon/evening.

38. DO YOU USE SARCASM?
Not as often as SOME people I know, but yes. When I find the good moments where it really counts.

39. HOW OLD WILL YOU BE TURNING ON YOUR NEXT BIRTHDAY?
28.  Feeling frakkin' ancient some days.

40. ARE YOU PICKY ABOUT SPELLING AND GRAMMAR?
I can be.  I HATE it when I post or email something and catch an error of my own, and try to always be available to help others - if they ask.  I try not to point out corrections unsolicited, though. But sometimes it happens. *shrug*

41. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO SIX FLAGS?
No.  The closest one is in Atlanta.  My brother went to Magic Mountain in L.A., though, and said it was fun.  But unless I'm mistaken, we MAY have a few other amusement parks here in the central Florida area. It's a little fuzzy, but I think we do.

43. DO YOU GET ALONG BETTER WITH THE SAME SEX OR THE OPPOSITE SEX?
As far as "buddy-buddy" get along, probably the same sex, as it is with most people.  But some of my closest friends are women, too, so I'd say it may be a mixed bag in my case.

44. DO YOU LIKE MUSTARD?
No.  I only tolerate it as an ingredient in something else, so I can't actually taste it. 

45. DO YOU SLEEP ON YOUR SIDE?
Most of the time.  I may end up on my back for a while, but almost always fall asleep and wake up on one side or the other.

46. DO YOU WATCH THE NEWS?
Only occasionally.  I'll sample the various networks and cable outlets, along with my local newspaper and online news to get a well-rounded perspective on the different forms and slants of bias in the "reporting".

47. HOW DID YOU GET ONE OF YOUR SCARS?
I was elbowed just below my right eyebrow during a basketball scrimmage in practice in H.S.  Got a rebound and someone tried to go after it, too - got knicked and needed 4 stitches.

48. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON TO MAKE YOU MAD?
"I don't remember. I probably blacked out and killed that person." I would love to steal this from Larry, but I won't.  I think one of the supervisors here at work counts - they went around here this morning into everyone's business at their workspace cubicle (yes - just like Office Space), just looking for shit to comment on.  Aggravating as hell.

49. DO YOU LIKE ANYBODY?
Of course.  I like lots of people. 

50. WHAT IS THE LAST THING YOU PURCHASED?
Subway for dinner last night - A footlong meatball with extra marinara, on asiago cheese bread, with provolone and mozzarella, grated parmesan and oregano.  And Lay's Salt & Vinegar chips.  And a Dr. Pepper.  Mmmmm.  Now I'm hungry, dammit.


O-kay.  That was time consuming.

Ok, now I like so have to do this. But since I will be leaving here in about an hour, I guess I will do it tomorrow morning.

Now, onto comments:
#17 - What does "butterfaces" mean? Srsly - hook me up with the man code. Do I have it?

#25 - I have been telling you for a year in just about any way I know how without it becomming embarrasing that I'm in love with you. You just don't believe me.

#27 - This question will be so very loaded for me. I cry in fandom often, but when I try to remember the last time I cried for just me, I'm kinda puzzled. Maybe when I left Orlando last year.

#37 - Ummm, did you make me a copy of Slither too. *bats eyes lovinly* I mean, Nathan, DUH!

Jeff: bxw - friendsj_mac179 on November 20th, 2006 09:04 pm (UTC)
#17 - Ah. Well, the "butterface" is shorthand for a girl with a smokin' bod, who isn't quite... umm... 'pretty'. As in, I love everything about her "but her face".

#25 - *blushes* Yes, but I think yours is more in the admiration of my fandom-obsessing (and shared love of fandoms in general). And in this case I'm referring to someone actually in the position to do something about it. ;)

#37 - Have not yet, but you know I wouldn't leave you hangin'. It IS Nathan, so of course I know who it is I'm talking to.
~ CinJudes ~: evi - kiss kiss_cinjudes_ on November 20th, 2006 09:30 pm (UTC)
#17 - Then I feel safe then, since I'm average throughout.

#25 - No. I love you. Fandom has nothing to do with it. But no, alas I can't do anything about it, and the main reason I don't is because you deserve better.

#37 - Thanksies, and there is one of the many reasons I love you, because you know me so very well. I have Slither on my queue and should have gotten it last week, but it got pushed back due to availablity. I'm still bitter about it.
Flora: Oooookaylatinatemptress on November 21st, 2006 05:03 pm (UTC)
25. You guys...I mean really. We all know who loves who here. We love ME! \o/ See? Now that we all agree, end of discussion.

17. The answer should have been if they look like Cindy or Flora. HELLO! *Socks you*

Anyway my darling, I mostly posted just to let you know that you are royally missed and that I hope everything is going well with you. Hugs and all that, Flo

I wouldn't have expected anything less than a comment like this, lol.

And ditto on the miss-age. I've not been on AIM in frakkin' forever, and have been mostly out of touch unless it's been though W-I or LJ. But I always keep my peeps in my thoughts. *smooches*

Do your duty and don't forget to watch Veronica tonight!

P.S. You may already be aware of the news, but I found THIS link from Zap2it, and apparently your boy with the ears is officially off the market.

OMG! You know, it's a sad and sorry state of affairs when DADDY knows the dirt before I do. Man, I hope Flo already knew about this or else you might be responsible for her panties bursting into flames.

And Flora my Love - you totally have us nailed and yes, we do love you the mostest. AND all of Jeff's chick criteria should include us as templates. If they don't then he just isn't as smart as I think he is, and Lord knows how that would destroy me.
