Thanks, Ryan. I spent like 10 minutes filling this thing out. But at least it took up 10 minutes of my day that would otherwise have been filled with me thinking “why isn’t it 8:00 yet?”

The longest survey you’ll ever fill out! Do the world a favor: fill it out and post it for all your friends…. Do this because the person who sent it to you didn’t sit here for ages for nothing. Answer all the questions honestly, no lying to avoid stuff.

Do You…

-Believe in love at first sight: Yes, but I also believe it’s so rare that for all practical intents and purposes it doesn’t exist.

-Like picnics: not so much, what with the sunlight and bugs. Eating outdoors (as opposed to indoors) is fun though.

-Like school: That’s a tough one. It all depends on what classes I’m taking. I hated calculus, but loved symbolic logic. I think that if I get to pick the class, I like it.

-Broke your heart: I don’t recall that having happened in my lifetime.

-Do you like filling these out? yeah, right. Does anyone *actually* like filling these out? At least it distracts me from the “is it time to go home yet?” thoughts.

More Questions:

-What are you listening to right now: not a whole lot. Some AIM beeps every so often, and case fans on the servers

-What did you do yesterday? Slept until noon (which is early for me), checked my email for the first time in a week (3500 messages! Woo!), spent some time with Heather.

-Hated someone in your family: Hate is too strong a word. Mildly disliked, perhaps, but never hated.

-What car do you wish to have: I really like the vehicle I drive now, although if the rumors are true and Ford comes out with a hybrid F-150 in a couple years, I’d like one of those.

-Good driver: yes

-Good singer: depends on your definition of “good”. It’s good enough for me, assuming I’m alone. Other people might not like it as much.

-Diamond or pearl: Diamond, because it’s a product that isn’t caused by irritation.

-Are you the oldest? Um, the oldest what? The oldest of my friends? no. The oldest sibling? yes. The oldest grandchild? yes. The oldest (only?) living boy in New Cross? nope

-Indoor or outdoor? depends on the reason for being in either, I suppose. Generally, I prefer indoors. But if I’m doing something like launching a bottle rocket or having a fight with broadswords, outdoors is definitely the way to go.

Today did you…

-Talk to someone you liked: “calendar” today? Not really, no. Within the last 24 hours? Definitely.

-Been to Mexico: no. Was close enough to see the border once though.

-Been to Europe: yes

-Been to Africa: yes


-Do you have a crush on someone: not a crush, no. I like to think that what I have right now is more real than a simple crush.

-What books are you reading now: I just finished Fight Club, and haven’t started anything else. Probably Neil Stephenson’s Baroque Cycle, since I’ve owned all three books for several years but haven’t even gotten halfway through the first one.

-Best feeling in the world: I’m gonna have to agree with Ryan and say “being loved”

-Do you sleep with a stuffed animal: nope

-What’s under your bed: junk, mostly. The lid to the plastuc tub that I keep my socks in, a couple chargers for various portable game systems, probably a book or two. Definitely no dead hookers. Really. No need for anyone to check.

-Butter, plain or salted popcorn? butter and black pepper

-Favorite Flower?: It’s sappy, but I like roses and tulips.

-Have you ever fired a gun?: yes, many times. It’s fun.

-Do you like to travel by plane as opposed to car? No. I’d like to blame the TSA for that opinion, but the real reason is that I like the control that I have in driving a car which I just can’t get in an airliner.

-How many pillows do you sleep with?: two, although there are frequently four on my bed.

-Who are you missing right now?: HDL

-Do you think your ex misses you?: Yes
