What would you do if you found out one of your friends likes your crush?
Murder them, of course.

Will the last person you kissed be the next person you kiss?
I doubt it, but I suppose it's possible.

Have you ever kissed an ex after you two have broken up?
I have. Sometimes it's meant that we were getting back together, but sometimes it's just been a friendly kiss.

Ever kept arguing even after you realized you were wrong?
I can't remember doing that. I don't think so. This also presupposes that I’ve been wrong.

If a girl kisses another girl are they a dirty hoe?
It depends on whether said girls are hot or not.

Why do you hate the person you hate the most?
Because he mistreated someone very important to me, and constantly made her blame herself for every problem between them.

When meeting someone new, are you afraid they won't like you?
Not really.

Has anyone ever told you they loved you and meant it?

Have you ever liked someone older than you?
I dated a girl 14 months older than me once. I'm not sure if that's enough of a difference to count.

Is heartbreak really as bad as people make it sound?
It's much worse than people make it sound, because mere words cannot describe it.

Do you believe in love at first sight?
Absolutely. I didn't always believe in it, though. I think maybe it's one of those things that has to be experienced to be believed.

Do you regret anything that you've done in your past?
I'm old. Of course I've done things that I regret.

Do you think you can love someone without trusting them?
Unfortunately, you can. Love is a feeling, not an action.

I think it would be very cool.

Are you generally a happy person?
I'd have to say no. This has not been a good year for me.

Do you hate it when people smoke around you?
I couldn't care less. Except clove cigarettes make me really hungry.

Which would you rather choose truth or dare while playing "truth or dare"?
Truth, I think.

Is there one person in your life that can always make you smile?
There are a couple. I won't get to see either of them for a while, though, so I probably won’t smile for a while.

Have you kissed anybody in the last 5 days?

Have you ever sent a text to the wrong person?
I don't think so. I've emailed the wrong person several times, though.

Would you rather sleep with someone else or alone?
With the right person.

Will this Friday be a good one?
I have no idea.

To some people it matters a lot. Not to me, though.

Are you stubborn?
I like to think that I am, but I cave a lot.

Did anything "cute" happen in the last week?
Not that I can think of.

Is there anybody you wish you could spend time with right now?
Yes, but I can’t, and that makes me sad.

Have you ever broken someone's heart?
I have. That's one of those regrets you asked about earlier.

What's something you really regret saying to someone?
Usually the truth, when I say it too harshly or realize, too late, that they're not ready to accept it.

Who was the last person you shared a bed with?
None of your business.

Now for the "Have you ever's" ready?
As I'll ever be.

Nope, came close though.

Ever sang to the person you liked?
Sure, like happy birthday and stuff like that.

Friendly acquaintances, yes, but maybe not friends.

Where was the last place you fell asleep other than your bed?
Someone's couch.

What is/are your favorite color/s?
Like anyone cares.

Are you a shy person?
In a group I'm usually the quiet one. In one-on-one situations I'm not shy at all.

What are you excited for?
Going home.

Do you have memories that you want to forget?
Just a couple.

If you could cry right now, what would be the reason?
Same thing as always. Missing someone.

Are you happy?
You already asked this. And I already said that I wasn't. Get off my back.

Do you think you will be in a relationship 3 months from now?
I continue to have hope, for some stupid reason. Stranger things have happened.

Not really. But I noticed that you don’t ask any. Maybe you’re afraid to ask sexual questions, huh?

Do you hate seeing happy couples?
They usually inspire me.

If you went to jail, who would bail you out?
I'd call my sisters, and if I couldn’t contact one of them I’d call HatGirl.

Almost 5'9"

When was the last time you were actually happy?
Monday night I talked to LaptopGirl on the phone and wished her a happy birthday.

About 10 seconds.

I always assumed it was black magic.

Of course.

What did you do this past New Year's?
LaptopGirl and I went to this dive in Corydon and met up with Tim and Wendy.

They absolutely could.

Petting my cats.

Have you consumed alcohol in the past 24 hours?
Yes, after work last night.

Have you ever been in a situation where you had to be around your ex everyday?

My keyboard.

I'm about to go smoke a cigarette.

HatGirl! Yay!

There is. What weird timing on this question!

Not to solve a problem, but to make it more bearable.

Do you believe in second chances?
I'll give a zillion chances to the right people.

Do you currently have a hickey?
Not that I know of.

Has anyone told you they don't wanna ever lose you?

Do you want to get married and have children one day?
I do, but I don't really see it happening.

Are you an alcoholic?
Contrary to some peoples' belief, I'm not.

Does anyone call you babe or baby?
Not to my face.

Do you want to please everyone?
No, almost everyone sucks so I don’t care about pleasing them.

Is there any emotion you're trying to avoid right now?
Yes. Two of them, in fact.

Do you like beer?
Duh. I'm a beer snob. That means I'll make fun of you if I catch you drinking swill.

When's the next time you will be getting piercings?
Right after hell freezes over.

Do you feel like anyone is playing mind games with you right now?
I'm almost certain of it. It’s the most logical explanation.

Would you consider yourself very flexible?
I'm open-minded enough to at least consider and try new things.

Are you the kind of person who has crazy mood swings?
I'm gonna say no.

How long is it until your birthday?
Three months.

How many baby showers have you been to?

Where do you want to live?
I don't care. It’s not about the place, it’s about the people you’re with.

How many times a day do you crack your neck?
None. I crack my knuckles a lot, though.

Have you ever painted a room?
Does a hallway count?

What's better: cookie dough or brownie batter?

What made you laugh the hardest today?
Haven't laughed today.

Have I been wasting my time?

I can't stand it.

Sure have.

I haven't done one of these in a while. Probably because it's a hassle.

Apologies for my voice being so rough. I might be sick. I haven't decided yet.

And, upon watching the video, I saw that I'd said MisunderstoodGirl when I meant to say MixedSignalGirl. Not that I don't also miss MisunderstoodGirl, it's just that she's not one of the first people who came to mind.

Yet another facebook quiz. Last one for tonight, I promise.

Are you the type to hold a grudge or do you forgive easily?
Usually I'm quite forgiving, but there are certain grudges I've held for years.

Do you still think of your first love, and are they happy or sad thoughts?
I have a sad/happy cycle I go through.

Have you ever felt like you hated your children?
No. That's horrible!

If you could live anywhere you chose, where would it be? If you had to leave someone or something behind to move there, would you?
A: Las Vegas, I think. B: It would depend on what person or thing I'd have to leave.

Do you believe in reincarnation?
No, but it would be cool.

Have you ever been arrested?
Yes. Charges were later dropped.

Do you have any phobias?
I don't like spiders.

If you could kill someone and get away with it, would you?
I doubt it. I suppose it would depend on whether they deserved it or not. Few people would deserve it.

Would you give a perfect stranger a part of your body if they needed it to stay alive? ie..liver transplant..kidney..
Blood, yes. A body-part, no.

Would you take a trip to another planet?

If you become unable to care for yourself when you get old, and euthansia was an option, would you choose it?
I doubt it. I'd hope that medical technology would eventually catch up to my ailment and I could be whole again.

Is there a person in your life that you can depend on for anything and everything at all, absolutely?
I'm going to say my sister, Dina. And she'll probably cry now. Gee, thanks, facebook quiz. You made my sister cry.

Another facebook quiz:

Do you believe that Harry Potter is evil? If so, why?
I believe that Harry Potter is fictional, and possibly gay, but not evil.

Which version of the Bible do you follow?
Whichever one is moving away from me while tied to a bottle of Alaskan Smoked Porter.

Do you believe things that people like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh say?
Very few people tell falsehoods all the time, so I believe just about everyone, every now and then.

Do you honor your mother and father as the Bible says to do?
I suppose that I did, but because they were my parents, not because some book told me to.

Is abortion ever acceptable?
There are circumstances in which I wouldn't be as against it as I normally am. Cases of rape and incest come to mind, as do those times when the mother's life is in danger.

Do you believe a person can be a Christian if they do not go to church?
Yes. I'm probably wrong, though. Maybe I mean that a person can be a good person whether they go to church or not. Yeah, that's what I meant.

Should religion be allowed in schools?
If it's non-disruptive and optional.

Should immigrants to the USA be required to serve our country in a civil service sense before being allowed citizenship?
No, I'm pretty sure that slavery and indentured servitude were both terrible ideas.

Should all parents be forced to work if they are physically able to do so, rather than receive public assistance?
Physically and mentally, they should work, but "forced" to work? I don't like the sound of that.

Which of your friends crack you up. ?

Tuesday, September 8, 2009
posted by dave at 2:07 PM in category quiz

Here's another one from facebook. I should be doing these in vlog format.


Who is the person in your life who taught you the most valuable life lessons?
MixedSignalGirl. I answered this question immediately, without giving it any thought whatsoever. I'll stick with that answer, but I'll add the "normal" people like my parents and such.

What is your earliest childhood memory?
I remember my mom holding a baby that, to my horror, wasn't me. I had a new sister named Dina. My next earliest memory, as far as I can tell, was of playing with a girl with long dark hair. Research has indicated that this was probably my cousin Terri, and I was two or three years old.

Where was the last place you made 'whoopie'?
My bed.

When did you wake up today?
About 8:00. I wish I would have slept longer.

Why did you cry last?
Me strong man. Me no cry.

Who is your favorite male actor?
Keifer Sutherland.

What was the last movie you watched?
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, a couple of nights ago. I thought it was a stupid movie.

Where do you do most of your shopping?
A gas station down the road from my house. Stupid question. The place where I spend the most money is Rich O's.

When did you last tell someone that you loved them?
Within the last six months, I think. She didn't believe me, I guess because of all the zillions of times I'd lied to her.

Why did you tell your last 'white lie?'
I have no idea. I'm a very honest person.

Who do you look more like - your mother or your father?
My mom. I actually think I look more like my maternal grandfather, except he was bald and I'm not.

What color is your vehicle?
Red or black or blue, depending on which vehicle you mean. I drive the blue truck the most. This is probably a variation of the "What's your favorite color?" question that usually pops up in these things.

Where would you go if you could go anywhere in the world on vacation?
Australia probably. Or Alaska. Or Russia. I'm easy. Usually I just want to get away from here, and the actual destination is secondary at best.

When was the last time you disappointed someone or hurt their feelings?
Within the last month, I bet. Hard to say. Disappointing someone and hurting their feelings can be two very different things.

Why do you think you are a 'good catch?'
Because I'm awesome. True, so true.

Who is your bff?
HatGirl and RockGirl.

What is the best feature on your body?
I've been complimented on my tongue. Does that count? Sometimes girls like my eyes, because they supposedly change color.

Where would you get a tattoo - if you would get a tattoo?
If I HAD to get one it would be on my upper arm. I can't imagine ever getting one, though.

When and what did you have for dinner today?
A fish sandwich and fries at the haunted Burger King. They were yummy.

Why did you take the time to complete this survey?
Because I was incredibly bored.

posted by dave at 12:38 PM in category quiz

The other night I was bored and took this "truth" survey on facebook. I reproduce it here for your amusement. The parts of the answers in italics were not part of my oirginal facebook answers.


Who was your hardest breakup?
I think that everyone knows the answer to that question. Anyone who knows me at all, in any event. And even if they disagree with me as to whether it was a breakup or not, nobody can deny that it hurt me terribly, and that it continues to do so.

Who was your last kiss to?
KittenDamsel. I kinda wish they'd used "most recent kiss" instead of "last kiss." The way they worded is too pessimistic.

Whats your favorite color?
Blue. Seriously, this question shows up all the time on these things. Does anyone really care about another person's favorite color?

What question would you hate to be asked?
This one. Okay, I dodged this question when I originally took this quiz. The real question I'd most hate to be asked would probably be something like, "Do you still cling to stupid hope?"

What is the weirdest thing you have done?
I'm 44 years old, I've done TONS of weird things. One time, in Alaska, I jumped onto an iceberg-thingy to see if it would hold me. Maybe that was more stupid than weird, though.

Who do you have a crush on?
Lots of different girls. Probably every girl I know.

How old do you wish you were right now?
A million. I don't know why I picked a million. Maybe so I'd be old and wise and stuff. In actuality, I wouldn't mind being 30 again.

If you had a time machine, would you use it, what important moment in your life would you see?
All I can do is SEE that moment, not change it? If all I can do is see it, I'd like to see my own birth. I've gone to the hospital where I was born, trying to find someone who can help me locate the room I was born in. But all those people are dead or retired by now, and they've done a lot of remodeling, so I've never found the actual room.

What is the biggest lie you ever told?
I've never told a lie. :) Not for a long time, anyway.

What do you regret most doing?
Waiting. I should have told LaptopGirl how I felt about her years earlier.

What do you regret most not doing?
Waiting. As long as I'd waited for years already, I should have waited a few more months, so I'd have been believed.

If you could choose how you could die, what would you choose?
Something memorable. An airplane crash or something. I want to SCREAM my last breath. Most people want to fall asleep and just never wake up. That would piss me off if it happened to me.

What would your best friend be surprised that you did?
I dunno. I'm an open book. I have nothing to add to my original answer.

If you could speak one more language, what would it be?
I already speak English and some Spanish. I guess French would be my next choice. And whatever they speak in Belgium. Is that Flemish?

If you had one day to live, how would you spend it (besides saying good bye)?
I'd spend it with her, if she'd let me. I seriously doubt that LaptopGirl would want to see me, but I'd have to ask. I would have no plan B.

Think of the most outrageous question, then type the answer.
In a heartbeat. I'm not gonna say what the question was.

What is the mast annoying trait in your best friend that you would like to eliminate?
I don't know if my best friend has ever annoyed any masts. Okay, there was a typo in the question, and I made fun of it. My best friend does indeed have annoying traits, just like everyone does, but I'm not going to spotlight any of them by stating what they are.

Have you ever felt like you ruined someones life?
I thought so once. I was wrong, luckily. I was pretty worried that I'd screwed MixedSignalGirl up for life. But she's turned out just fine.

Yes. It sucks.

Often I think that I take too much responsibility.

Only when it's their fault.

Is there really a such thing as NORMAL?
I hope not. That would be really boring, I think.

What is the definition of Love? (besides 1 corinthians)
(This was straight out of my blog) I think that love just might be when every possible type of attraction exists at the same time for the same person. That's why it seems so damn overwhelming and confusing.

Yes, if doing otherwise would have gone against who I am as a person.

Do you believe in repeat patterns in family, life, and relationships?
Not sure what you mean.

How do you know if your crazy or sane?

How much of who you are today was brought on by how you were raised and the circumstances surrounding you?
The circumstances surrounding me made me the way I am.

Have you ever tried to do something good and right only to have hate thrown back at you?
It's been happening a lot recently.

Have you ever had to make a decision that would change everything? If so what was it?
I didn't answer this on facebook, but it's probably okay to answer it here. One time I decided to tell the love of my life that she was the love of my life. It was supposed to change everything, but it ended up not changing shit.

Have you ever lied to your best friend or significant other?
Not for at least a decade.

Have you ever felt completely and totally alone?

Have you ever argued with God?
I don't think so. I've had some cross words with Him, though.

Do you believe that love can grow slowly, or do you believe it happens imediately?
I think there's room for both kinds. I have experienced both kinds.

Have you ever felt like you ruined someones life?
I've felt that way at times. Fortunately, I was wrong.

Do you understand yourself, and how others percieve you?
I understand myself fairly well. I have no clue what other people think about me.

A few days ago someone - MisunderstoodGirl, I think - posted this to facebook. I was thinking that I'd do a vlog about it, but I don't feel like putting clothes on right now, so I'll just type my answers. How quaint.

If you could, at this very moment, take a ride on anything in the world, what would you most want to ride?
A dragon. Also, I'd like dragons to exist.

If you could get one thing back that was either lost or destroyed, what would it be?
The second car I ever owned, a 1979 firebird. It wasn't that great of a car, but I liked it, and I went through a lot in it. Whenever I dream about any of my old cars, it's always that one.

What is one item you own that has virtually no monetary value but has such sentimental value that you would not sell it for $1,000?
My rock, of course. Duh.

If you could know without a shadow of a doubt the answer to one question that has always troubled you, what question would you want to have answered?
Is there any point to any of this?

If you could bring back any tradition that seems to have faded into the past, what tradition would you bring back?
Knocking cute girls on the head and dragging them back to the cave. It just seems like our current way is a lot harder.

If you could open your own retail store, what type of merchandise would you sell?
Probably pool & billiards supplies. Or maybe books. I dunno, I can't really see myself running a retail store of any kind. That would be boring to me. Wait, do bars count?

If you could have any book instantly memorized from cover to cover, which book would you choose?
I think a World Almanac or something like that, with lots of facts.

If, with your safety guaranteed, you could experience something very dangerous, what would you want to experience most of all?
If my safety was guaranteed, then it wouldn't be very dangerous, would it? Anyway, I think climbing Mt. Everest would be cool.

What is one field or profession that you never persued, but that you think you probobly would have been quite good at?
Anything scientific. Astronomy, perhaps.

If you could invent a pair of glasses that would allow you to see abstract things, what would you want to be able to see most of all?
A person's aura. Kinda like in that movie Shallow Hal.

I took a stupid quiz on facebook tonight. This is the video version of my answers.

Now, wasn't that exciting? Sorry, if you want those 17 minutes of your life back, no refunds will be given.

I've been seeing variations of this around. I'm bored and I can't sleep, so what the heck.

Airline miles. First I saved enough to go to Hawaii, then I saved enough to go to Hawaii first-class, then I saved enough to go with somebody special. Now I think I've got enough to go first-class with somebody special, but nobody wants to go with me.

Baseball. When I was a kid I was a pretty big fan of the Reds. I played little league and stuff, and I could run fast and I could whack the crap out of the ball. But I couldn't field for shit.

Cats. I have two of them now. I used to have three, but poor Happy died last fall when I was busy. I've always been more of a cat person than a dog person.

Dangerfield. My funniest Rodney Dangerfield joke is, "I never got any respect even as a kid. Why when I was kidnapped my parents got a call saying if they didn't pay $5000 they'd see me again."

Every time I think that things are getting better, they suck even harder.

Farrah. The way I found out about Michael Jackson's death was that KittenDamsel told me a joke. "What was Farrah Fawcett's dying wish?" "That Michael Jackson would die."

Goth. Laptopgirl told me that she used to be goth. I really really really want to see pictures from those days. I bet she was hot.

HatGirl. Yay!

Igloo. That was just the first thing that popped into my head that started with that letter. I bet they're hard to build.

Jackie was the name of one of the first girls I ever had a crush on. It was second grade.

K as in the letter K. It's a bad-luck letter for me when it comes to women. As opposed to all of the incredibly fantastic luck I have the rest of the time.

Launa was my mom's name. If I were to ever have a daughter, I'd want to name her Launa.

Meow. That's what Buddy is doing right now. He thinks that he's starving to death because he hasn't eaten since midnight or so.

North. I wish I'd done more exploring when I lived in Alaska. I mean, I did quite a bit, but I should have done more. I want to go back someday.

Oppossums. I don't like them and their beady eyes.

Pickles. They suck. Their smell contaminates everyting around them, and God help you if you get pickle juice on something because that smell is never going away.

Quack. Part of this entry fragment that I like: If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck - guess what, it's a fucking duck. Call it a cherry pie all you want, but it's still a damn duck.

Rise. That's what the Sun is going to do before too long. I should go outside and watch.

Sometimes I wish I'd never told her the truth. But only sometimes.

Tornadoes. I'd still like to see one someday, as long as it's not coming straight at me.

Underwear. I wear boxers. You know you care.

Vanquish. I don't know why I thought of that word. Maybe I'm tired.

WeatherGirl has always been nice to me. Her dog sucks, though.

X-rays. I've had my shoulder and my foot and my knee x-rayed. Oh, and my teeth. No super-powers yet, though. I'm still waiting.

YoungGirl and I had dinner Sunday evening. It was nice to have the company.

Zoo. I like the Tazmanian Wolves. I think they're cool-looking. They smell like skunks, though.

I should really have known better than that. To write anything indicative of a crappy mood. Much better, I'm told, to just keep my big fat mouth shut. Or, better still, lie and be seen to tra-la-la my way through life.

Oh well, though. Can't be helped. I'm not deleting it now.

What I figured I'd do, instead, is write some more stuff. I figure that if I write enough it will push that drivel further and further down the page. Out of sight and therefore out of mind, because nobody ever bothers to scroll down. I mean, the scrollbar is way over there.

And, since I can't be bothered to be creative right now, I'll just post this stupid survey thingy I was messing with this morning.

Would you rather have a fun fling or a lasting relationship?
Flings are for kids. I haven't been a kid for a long time.
What was your longest relationship?
I knew you were going to ask that. Right at two years. Or maybe four years. Depends on how you count.
What is your favorite personality trait?

One time a girl filled my house up with balloons when I was at pool league. That was pretty romantic.

Sure, I suppose. I mean, I usually use them.

Do you like relationships that involve serious commitments?

I'd want to ask, then I'd want her to say yes. And I'd want her to refrain from issuing bullshit last-minute demands that she knew I'd never agree to.
If you were engaged, would you want a wedding as soon as possible?
I think I'd leave that decision up to my bride, but my own preference would be to marry sooner rather than later. Once you figure out who you want to spend the rest of your life with, you want the rest of your life to start right away.

The former. And I just figured out that a chick wrote this survey.

Unless there's a good reason, daily contact should happen naturally. When it feels forced, then something is probably wrong.

Is there anything you won't tolerate while in a relationship?
What is one thing that you value most in a relationship?
Would you ever be able to handle a long-distance situation?

Girls- look at your top 3 boys listed on your Myspace

Guys - look at your top 3 girls listed on your Myspace

- Don't change them!!

- Enter their names in order

- Be honest

- Repost this so your friends can do it too

1. Misty
2. Kat
3. Amanda

4. Are you older than number 1?

2. Are you older than number 2?

3. How did you meet number 1?
One night I was sitting at the bar at Rich O's, and she sat next to me. She kept looking at my beer. At the time, I thought, "Why is this weird girl looking at my beer?"

As it turned, out, she was deciding if I was worthy of getting to know or not. I'm glad it turned out the way it did.

4. If you were crying would number 1 cheer you up?
I think she'd laugh at me, and that would cheer me up.

5. Where is Number 3?
A gazillion miles away.

6. Have you hugged any of them?
I've hugged them all, with varying intensity.

7. Who have you known the longest?
Hard to say. I'm pretty sure that I met Kat first, but then I got to know Amanda and Misty next, before I got to know Kat.

8. Who have you know the shortest?
Again, hard to say. Probably Kat.

10. Who's the most awkward to be around?
Sometimes Misty is in a strange mood that makes it awkward. So I'll say her. The real answer is not Misty, though.

11. Are you taller than number 3?
Yes, and I'm glad you didn't ask about number 2.

12. Who's most likely to repost this?
Probably Kat. In fact, I think she already has.

13. Is any of the top 3 family?

14. Do you trust them all?
This question almost made me not want to post this. I'm just going to answer that I don't fully trust them all, and I'll thank you to leave it at that.

15. Have you ever shared a bed with any of the top 3?
I have not.

17. Who lives the closest to you?
I don't know where Misty lives, so I'll say Kat.

18. Who do you talk to the most?

19. Who knows the most about you?

20. Who makes fun of you the most?
I have a feeling that it's a tie between Kat and Amanda.

21. Do you argue with number 2?
I rarely argue with anyone, so no.

22. Does number 1 have the same B-day as you?
I seriously doubt it. Oh, wait, I know that she doesn't. Her's is in May and mine's in February. This was a dumb question.

23. Would you break the law for number 2?
I have probably done so already.

Wednesday, September 19, 2007
posted by dave at 10:20 PM in category quiz

Nope, given one though.

Depends on how you count. I'll say five years.

I got some stuff last Christmas.

What a stupid question. Of course I have.

A long time.

Eating and drinking.

Spaghetti and garlic bread.

First thing is probably their general shape, until they get closer then I notice eyes.

Please Forgive Me by David Gray.

In my house.

Floyd Central.

Cingular. They're our supplier for work.

Like I care.

Air Force, nine years.

Another stupid question. Yes.

Caller-ID would have put an end to that, even if becoming an adult hadn't done it already.

Dina and Kenny.

Probably Eric.

Saw one of them yesterday.

I suppose Wendy's.

It will be different this time.

I'm weird. I prefer to eat alone.

Some things.

Toyota Pickup, Dodge Intrepid. Chevy Monte Carlo SS if I ever get the exhaust fixed.


A long time ago, in a galaxy far away.


My ability to entertain myself by taking stupid surveys.

Once I lose faith in someone, it's extremely tough for me to get it back.

Twenty-four hours or so.

I like lots of movies. Nothing in particular comes to mind.

To my cats.

REO Speedwagon, a million years ago. Or maybe The Violent Femmes, three years ago. Depends on whether the latter could be called a concert or not.

I should have pressed the issue.

I don't rent movies. I just buy them. Last one I bought was Say Anything.


Las Vegas.

The former at work, the latter at home.

Steven Wright is pretty funny. Is he still alive?

When I'm on fire.

Varies. Usually without.

My cats take shifts.

Not in my experience.

I dunno. Maybe once when I was a kid. Or maybe never.




I acknowledge its existence, if that's what you mean.

If I don't count work people, then SassyGirl.


"Don't be such a stranger!"


Imperial Stormtrooper costume. Crotchless, of course.

"This year's love had better last."

I neither know nor care.

Better than you can, probably.

I could postpone drowning for a while.

Vanilla-fudge swirl.

Yet another stupid question. Okay, fine - maps are cool.

Sometimes I can't think of a good answer to a survey question.

Do Halloween parties count? If so, then yes.


When TremensGirl told me some stupid jokes tonight.



In 1996 or so, for not having insurance.

Tiger. He was a cat. Bet you didn't see that one coming.

Fictional pirates are cool. Real-life pirates seem to be assholes though. What with all the raping and murdering.


February 20th.

A writer.



A couple of people.

Some warm deserted beach would be pretty nice.

No, I'm in my house.

A couple.

Belvedere Jehosephat.

Technically, they're trunks. And they're yellow.

What's with all the school questions?

Took vacation from work. Didn't go anywhere though.

Yes. One of those barefoot cruise thingies.

Two of them.

It depends. I'm not in my basement, but I'm on the ground floor of my house. Does that count as upstairs?


Yes, a few times.

A few people come immediately to mind.


Watch TV.

10 (a) 4 (b) 2 (c) 3 (d) 5 (e) 6 (f) 1

Now add up the total number of points.

OVER 60 POINTS: Others see you as someone they should "handle with care." You're seen as vain, self-centered, and who is extremely dominant. Others may admire you, wishing they could be more like you, but don't always trust you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you.

51 TO 60 POINTS: Others see you as an exciting, highly volatile, rather impulsive personality; a natural leader, who's quick to make decisions, though not always the right ones. They see you as bold and adventuresome, someone who will try anything once; someone who takes chances and enjoys an adventure. They enjoy being in your company because of the excitement you radiate.

41 TO 50 POINTS: Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical, and always interesting; someone who's constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well balanced not to let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and understanding; someone who'll always cheer them up and help them out. You are very loyal to your friends and lovers. People find it easy to come to you with their problems, you are someone they can always rely on

31 TO 40 POINTS: Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful & practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who's extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expect the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over if that trust is ever broken.

21 TO 30 POINTS: Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder. It would really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine everything carefully from every angle and then, usually decide against it. They think this reaction is caused partly by your careful nature.

UNDER 21 POINTS: People think you are shy, nervous, and indecisive, someone who needs looking after, who always wants someone else to make the decisions & who doesn't want to get involved with anyone or anything! They see you as a worrier who always sees problems that don't exist. Some people think you' re boring. Only those who know you well know that you aren't.

Now forward this to others, and put your score in the subject box of your e-mail, like this:

19. What do you remember most about graduation?
That it was a relief.

20. Where did you go senior skip day?
Yes, and I told my mom beforehand that I'd be doing it. There was a kegger at the house of some guy I never heard of. It was fun.

Nowhere, unless you count mowing my grandmother's yard for like $5 each week.

33. what were your grades?

2. If you were drafted into a war, would you survive?

3. Do you sleep with the TV on?
Any noise other than raw white noise keeps me awake. So I sleep with a fan roaring next to my bed.

4. Have you ever drank milk straight out of the carton?

13. Are you drinking anything right now?
Diet Pepsi.

14. Do you think you're attractive?
I answered that once in another entry:

"Maybe, in a dark enough room, to a drunk enough observer, while surrounded by lepers and zombies, I might at times be considered not ugly enough to scare children, but I'm enough of a realist to know that about the best I could ever hope for would be simply average."

15. What color underwear are you wearing (if any)?

17. What do you want for Christmas?
A billion dollars. And a kitten calendar.

18. Do you know the muffin man?

19. Do you talk in your sleep?

Had to update the Friday plans part.

Stolen from Ella

When was the last time you shaved?
This morning before work.

Explain what ended your last relationship.
She wanted me to violate my principles and hurt someone that I care about. When I refused, she took it as proof that I loved the other person more than I loved her.

What were you doing this morning at 8 a.m.?
That was just about when I was pulling out of my garage.

What were you doing 15 minutes ago?
I went to this break area outside. To get back in, you have to badge yourself into the building, then push a button to get through a door, then badge yourself into the elevator, then badge yourself into another building, then take another elevator up to where I sit. It's easier to break out of jail than it is to get to my desk.

Are you any good at math?
I guess I'm pretty good at it. It interests me a lot more now that it did when I was in school.

Your prom night?
My girlfriend and I went to different schools, and they had stupid some rule where people from other schools couldn't go to our proms. So we just went down to the river and fucked.

Do you have any famous ancestors?

Have you had to take a loan out for school?
Nope. The Air Force paid for my schooling.

Do you know the words to the song on your myspace profile?
No, I'm straight.

Last thing received in the mail?
I hardly ever check my mail. I got a book from RockGirl a while ago.

How many different beverages have you had today?
Just a bottle of Diet Vanilla Pepsi.

Do you ever leave messages on people’s answering machine?
Sometimes. Do you always ask such stupid questions?

Who did you lose your CONCERT virginity to?
Is that the same thing as my first concert? Uncle Ted, sometime around 1977 I think.

Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach?
No, I'm straight.

What’s the most painful dental procedure you’ve had?
Had a tooth pulled a few years ago. Getting an injection in the roof of my mouth was the most pain I've ever felt, dental or otherwise.

What’s out your back door?
My deck. Dead hookers.

Any plans for Friday night?
I usually like to just do what comes naturally. That usually means that I go to Rich O's. But this weekend I'm on-call so everything's up in the air. UPDATE: This one hot girl just called me and so now I'm going to Rich O's after work to see her and her cousin. The hot girl has promised that she will wear her DaveFest shirt.

Do you like what the ocean does to your hair?
You mean like get it wet? Comes with the territory I suppose.

Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different popcorns?
We've had them at work a couple of times. Does that count?

Have you ever been to a planetarium?
My high school had a planetarium in it. So yes.

Do you re-use towels after you shower?
I have like five towels. Usually I do laundry often enough that I don't reuse dirty towels.

Some things you are excited about?
I'm going to Las Vegas in six weeks. Yay!

What is your favorite flavor of JELLO?
Jell-O is disgusting.

Describe your keychain(s)?
It's a metal thingy with keys on it. It jingles when I shake it.

Where do you keep your change?
I keep it in multiple piles all over my house. This is to deter thieves. Sometimes I put it all in a big water jug, then at other times I take it all to the bank and turn it into real money.

When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people?
Probably back when I was running a pool league and I'd meet with potential players.

What kind of winter coat do you own?
A green one. I usually wear a brown leather jacket though.

What was the weather like on your graduation day?
I think it was a pretty nice day, but the wind coming off the glacier was chilly.

Do you sleep with the door to your room open or closed?
My cats do not allow closed doors in the house. They barely tolerate closed cabinets and drawers.

At work today we were "given the opportunity" to take an "entirely optional" personality profile test, the results of which would remain "completely anonymous."

Yeah, right.

But I succumbed to peer pressure and took the thing. If nothing else, It allowed me to kill an hour out of a very boring day.

You know those quizzes that bored people are always taking so they can put the results in their 'blog?

Well, this was like that. Just like a hangnail is like an amputation.

Hey! That could have been one of the questions!

Most quizzes are to this test as a hangnail is to ...

The test had a lot of questions like that. I hate that kind of question. They usually don't make any sense.

A floormat is to fried chicken as Batman is to ...
(a) The 1987 Denver Broncos.
(b) That one TeleTubby that everyone says is gay.
(c) Minced garlic.
(d) 3.14159
But even more than the analogy questions, I hate hate hate hate the number sequence questions
Please complete the following number sequence: 4, 8, 23, 1, 86.2 33.88888 ...
(a) 3.14159
(b) 12
(c) -721
(d) 0
About a quarter of the test was made up of bullshit questions like those above. A large portion of the rest consisted of multiple-choice stuff.
A woodchuck who can chuck wood can chuck _______ cords of wood:
(a) 4
(b) 3
(c) 2
(d) 1
Let's see, there were also a bunch of standard math questions which weren't too tough. I like math.

My favorite (note italics, denoting sarcasm) part of the test was where you had to indicate which of two choice you'd prefer more, and how much more you'd prefer it. I hated these questions, because the choices were so different that it made comparisons very hard.

Indicate your preference between doing your taxes, or being a featured guest on the Jerry Springer show:
(a) Strongly prefer the first option.
(b) Slightly prefer the first option.
(c) Slight prefer the second option.
(d) Strongly prefer the second option.
Anyway, I made it through the approximately 250 questions in an hour or so. Then I got my "confidential" results in an email.

I was pleasantly surprised with the accuracy of the results:

First of all, wow! I had no idea that there were people in the world as cool as you are. Please tell me your name, as I plan to name all of my future children after you, in the hope that they might someday grow up to be just like you. Also, based on your answer to the woodchuck question, it's obvious that your dick must be fucking huge!

There are, however, a couple of things that should be mentioned. You know, just for the sake of completeness. You seem to have a fairly low tolerance for stupid people, and I can imagine that this is very difficult for you since everyone is stupid by comparison. You might want to work on your tolerance. Or not, it's up to you. I mean really, who am I to tell you what to do?

Your results also indicate that you have fairly high standards for attractiveness when evaluating potential sexual partners. I'm just saying, it's what the results indicate. I don't really think that's a problem for you, but this checklist I'm looking at says I'm supposed to mention it. Fuck, I'd be the same way if I were as cool as you and had all those women throwing themselves at me all the time.

This isn't really that kind of a test, but I'm going to give you an A+ anyway. What're they gonna do, fire me?

I was bored (obviously) so I took some quizzes this morning. I stole the first one from GoGo.

What Your Soul Really Looks Like

You are a warm hearted and open minded person. It's easy for you to forgive and forget.

You are not a very grounded person. You prefer dreams to reality. For you, it's all about possibilities.

You see yourself with pretty objective eyes. How you view yourself is almost exactly how other people view you.

Your near future is a lot like the present, and as far as you're concerned, that's a very good thing.

For you, love is all about caring and comfort. You couldn't fall in love with someone you didn't trust.

Well, that's crap. Let's try another one.

What Your Face Says

At first glance, people see you as warm and well-balanced.

Overall, your true self is passive and thoughtful.

With friends, you seem dramatic, lively, and quick to react.

In love, you seem like a huge flirt.

In stressful situations, you seem selfish and moody.

Maybe a little more accurate. On to the next quiz.

What Sign Is Your True Love?

Your True Love Is a Sagittarius.

Why you'll love a Sagittarius:

Deep and philosophical, you'll love getting lost in hours of conversation with your Sag.
Your Sagittarius is curious and adventurous enough to keep you interested... not an easy task!

Why a Sagittarius will love you:

You're passionate about a few important issues, a kind of depth that Sagittarius finds very attractive.
You're outgoing, flexible, and up for almost anything. You and your Sag will have tons of adventures together.

Well, duh!

How Happy Are You?

You Are 28% Happy

You're not miserable, but you could stand to be a lot happier.

Focus on what's right in the world, and you'll be happier than you ever thought possible.

I think this one overestimated things. No way I'm that happy.

What's Your Ideal relationship?

Your Ideal Relationship Is Marriage

You've dated enough to know what you want.

And that's marriage - with the right person.

You're serious about settling down some time soon.

Even if you haven't met the person you want to get hitched to!

I suppose this one is accurate.

The Keys to Your Heart
You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.

In love, you feel the most alive when your lover is creative and never lets you feel bored.

You'd like to your lover to think you are loyal and faithful... that you'll never change.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was ruthless, cold-blooded, and sarcastic.

Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future... one you can grow with.

Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.

You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.

In this moment, you think of love as commitment. Love only works when both people are totally devoted.

What I'd like to know is how can a quiz that asks you a bunch of animal questions gives such accurate results.

Found this old quiz on DooRagGirl's 'blog. The image seems to be broken.

You are a sock.

You are a cozy, fuzzy, warm-hearted person. A lot of your friends describe you as a hopeless romantic. You fall for the opposite sex very easily. But be careful, because usually you don't know what you are getting into, and because you are very sensitive, you can get hurt... especially in early relationships. Also, don't exclude the cold-hearted from your "want-list", because they just might be looking for a kind person to warm up their heart.... or a sock to warm up their feet.

Most compatible with: Toilet Paper.

Nope. I like to watch fires, but not enough to go around setting them.

10. Describe your bed

Not much of a quiz really, but what other category should I put this in?

Your Birthdate: February 20
Your birth on the 20th day of the month adds a degree of emotion, sensitivity, and intuition to your reading.

The 2 energy provided here is very social, allowing you to make friends easily and quickly.

Yet you are apt to have a rather nervous air in the company of a large group.

You have a warmhearted nature and emotional understanding that constantly seeks affection.

You are very prone to become depressed and moody, as emotions can turn inward and cause anxiety and mental turmoil.

It can be hard for you to bounce back to reality when depression sets in.

When things are going well, you can go just as far the other way and become extremely affectionate.

You work, consciously or subconsciously, towards the betterment of society, but I guess you do this by befriending its strangest elements. You're kind of a spaceman, but in the end you're allright.

Also known widely as the Fire Bird, the phoenix is a profound symbol of life and rebirth. It has a life cycle of 500 to 600 years and after that amount of time, it sets itself on fire and dies in the flames. Then, after three days, it rises again from the ashes. It is a completely benign creature who lives in dew. It is said that the phoenix has a beautiful melodious song which grows ever more mournful as its life comes to an end. It is also a symbol of the sun and immortality.

Still awake, still bored. I took another test.

You are green. Perhaps one of the most balanced of all the colors. By balanced, I mean balanced in both bad and good parts. Let me elaborate: You're a natural, and somewhat superficial person. You're extremely generous, but, to add to the confusion, you're frugal and stingy. You're a forgiving, but jealous person. You're imaginative, but still logical. At sometimes, you're a complete neat-freak, and other times, you're a total slob. You're very stable, but undependable. But onto the other traits that are associated with this color... You're a stubborn person, simply put. Do you believe in Feng Shui? Green is closely related to the thought of having a balanced environment, you know. When in a bad situation, you're painfully pessimistic, and when you're in a good situation, you're extremely optimistic. A fairly outgoing and amused person, you enjoy talking to people, and hearing their thoughts on different things. As a plus, when people hang around you, it seems like time passes by all the more quickly.

What color are you? (Amazingly detailed & accurate--with pics!)
