30.] What brand of batteries do you usually get?
31.] Are any of your friends pregnant or have kids?
Yes. But what do you care?
32.] What is in your medicine cabinet?
Ummm… medicine and sundry toiletries including, but not limited to: deodorant, Axe body spray, shaving cream, a Gillette Fusion razor and blades, and nail clippers.
33.] What’s your favorite aspect of the natural world?
Its almost incomprehensible diversity.
34.] What’s your favorite man made thing?
35.] Can you whistle properly?
Is there an actual rubric for proper whistling? I mean is it proper to use your fingers (I can’t)? And I have terrible tone, so does that weigh against me?
36.] What song do you think is the most widely heard in the world?
Happy Birthday. Or else “Nana Nana Boo Boo”. Or “Shave and a Haircut, Two Bits”.
37.] Where’s the strangest place a fast food restaurant was located?
Do I win a prize if I correctly answer this one? Because the strangest place would have to be an interdimensional plane populated by three-headed sado-masochists who communicate using an intricate combination of boiling water and women’s hosiery.
38.] What states surround your state? Or are you not land locked?
Hmmm… trying to steal my identity again are you? Crafty one you are. I am surrounded by the following states: Pain, Panic, Euphoria, and Grace.
39.] Do you own binoculars or monoculars? What do you use them for?
I do not. But if I did, I imagine I might use them for – oh, I don’t know – magnification?
40.] Do you ever wish you had a telescope on the roof or attic to stargaze?
Yes, actually, I do. Well, maybe not the roof. On top of the bluffs would be nice, though.
41.] What’s your favorite chocolate bar?
Any dark chocolate is fine by me.
42.] Do you fall asleep easy in cars? How about planes, trains and boats?
Yes. Especially when driving. No, because I snore and fear disrupting others.
43.] Would you rather live a year of your life in every major country or stay in the same place you live forever without vacations?
Oh, once a year in each country, please. Imagine the people you would encounter and the stories you could share!
44.] What will you not tolerate in a person?
Wanton ignorance. Cruelty.
45.] Do you forgive others easier or yourself? Why is this?
I definitely forgive others easily, but that is dependent upon the infraction. I am capable of grudge holding, which is an embarrassing trait to possess. I tend to revisit my mistakes constantly, which I rationalize as trying to avoid making them again, but is really just an excuse to wallow in pity. Again, embarrassing trait.
46.] How was God made, if he exists?
If he exists, and I believe he does, he came into being of his own free will. Cogito ergo sum.
47.] Have you ever done aqua aerobics or polo?
No. But I think I would like it.
48.] What age were you when you learned how to swim?
Um, I think I was four or five. I loved the water ever since I can remember. I can’t remember NOT knowing how to swim.
49.] What shows or characters scared you as a child?
I know there were things that scared me, but I honestly can’t think of any right now. Will have to return to this sometime.
50.] Do you stay up all night on New Years Eve/Day or go to bed after 12am?
I have stayed up. And usually, it’s pretty mundane. Depends upon the company and how I feel.
51.] What’s something unusual currently in your fridge?
A fruit whose identity is unknown, maybe an uglyfruit? It tastes pretty good, in any case.
52.] How about your freezer?
A “Cars” lunch ice pack. We don’t have kids.
53.] What could you be doing now that is more productive?
Almost anything that doesn’t involve sitting and typing on a laptop. Like resolving the Grand Unified Theory.
54.] Give me some lyrics from the song that’s stuck in your head?
You ain’t never caught a rabbit and you ain’t no friend of mine.
55.] What’s your favorite type of firework?
Ones that are not shot off. Fireworks… blargh. Okay, so maybe the pro ones that pop and then crackle. *sigh*
1.] What age is your youngest aunt?
2.] Do you miss someone right now?
There are many people I miss. If by missing you mean, think about fondly when they are not around. IBA, of course. Mom and Dad, but I can see them if I want to. I miss my grandma, and I don’t get to see her again in this world.
3.] What can you see North West to you?
Some houses, blue sky with a few clouds. Trees. Run of the mill small town stuff.
4.] Do you like bowling?
Yes and no. It’s fun while I am doing it, but I do not often have the desire. Plus, I suck.
5.] Can you pronounce Italian words?
Si, signore. As a vocalist, it’s pretty mandatory.
6.] Do you prefer black or beige coloured jackets?
I like the spelling of “colour”. We should write it that way in American English. Oh, and on me, black.
7.] Do you own a hoodie?
Yes, a Minnesota Vikings hoodie. But I never call it a hoodie. It’s a sweatshirt that zips up.
8.] Do you like roasting marshmallows on a bonfire?
Yes. Are there people who do not?
9.] Do you like cheesy puffs?
Not in the least.
10.] What’s your name without vowels?
11.] How many layers of clothing are you wearing?
Less than one.
12.] When was the last time you got a take away? What did you have?
I love that it’s called take away. So much more precise than take out. Sadly, it was McDonald’s.
13.] If you could climb any mountain or range which would you choose?
None. I have a ridiculous fear of climbing. Or more precisely, falling. But if I could go anywhere and view a mountain range, it would be the Grand Tetons.
14.] Do you alphabetically arrange anything in your room? What?
No. If I did, that organization would last exactly as long as it takes to pull the first thing out and put it back. Organization, shmorganization. I like things uncluttered, but not organized. Unless someone else does it.
15.] Have you ever visited fat-pie [dot] [com]?
What is this, some kind of ruse?
16.] Do you prefer sweet or sour fruits?
Oh sweet fruits, absolutely. Mango. Mmmmm!
17.] Do you like Flo Rida? Which song of his?
As a state, it pretty much blows. Oh wait… see that’s a funny story. I thought his moniker was actually pronounced like the state. Yeah. I’m old.
18.] How are your dancing skills?
Rusty. But I am pretty spastic anyway, so it’s hardly noticeable.
19.] What is your favorite number?
7. No reason. Always has been. Always will be.
20.] Describe your best friend to me?
How can you reduce trust, love and camaraderie to mere words. Oh, I just did. Seriously, that;s what describes my best friend. Oh, also wildly intelligent and well-read.
21.] What is your favorite alcoholic drink?
At the moment, Raspberry Woodchuck Hard Cider. But I have a place in y heart for Leinie’s Summer Shandy and a top shelf gin and tonic, as well.
22.] Do you do any sports or have you done any sport professionally?
No. Laughably so.
23.] What is your ringtone?
Some generic tone that came with the phone. Should be a Foo Fighters song, though.
24.] Do you like chilli flavoured chips/crisps?
25.] Do you curl or straighten your hair?
26.] What’s the nicest smell of shampoo?
Strawberry. Or Green Apple. Also, Johnson’s Baby Shampoo.
27.] What smell turns you on? How about turns you off?
A smell? I can honestly say I have never had a smell actually do that for me. The smell of methane is kind of a showstopper.
28.] Who’s your favorite comedian?
Louis CK. Outstanding. A master of his craft.
29.] RnB or Reggae?
I like both, but do not listen to either frequently. I assume you are including classic R & B in the genre you reference.
