Oh, Why Not....

It's not as if anybody is actually reading blogs at the moment.

First seen at Sheila's:

What curse word do you use the most?
Tho' "bother it" I may
Occassionally say,
I never use a big, big "D".

[What, never?]

No, never!

[What, NEVER?]

Well, hardly ever...

Do you own an iPod?
Nope. Don't really care either.

Who on your MySpace "Top 8" do you talk to the most?
I don't even know what this means.

What time is your alarm clock set for?
Well, it's set for 6:00 am, but it's actually 20 minutes fast. This gives me the satisfying illusion of staying in bed later than I actually do.

What color is your room?
Sort of a goldenroddish yellow, with white trim and molding and wood floors (badly in need of whatever you do to make wood look less worn out).

Flip flops or sneakers?
Feh. Topsiders for me, thanks.

Would you rather take the picture or be in the picture?

What was the last movie you watched?
Soapdish. And I still can't make up my mind about it after all these years. Tonight I'm going to try Kenneth Branagh's 1930's version of Love's Labour's Lost and plan to get very crabby, indeed.

Do any of your friends have children?
Almost all of them. Nobody else can stand to be around parents.

Has anyone ever called you lazy?
I frequently call myself lazy.

Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep faster?
Never have. Wait, do adult beverages count?

What CD is currently in your CD player?
Some Telemann Trio Sonatas performed by Camerata Köln.

Do you prefer regular or chocolate milk?
I don't like chocolate, but I can't remember the last time I drank any kind of milk.

Has anyone told you a secret this week?
Ooh, the things I hear! Wouldn't you like to know?

Have you ever given someone a hickey?
I'm sorry, my high school records have been permanently sealed.

Who was the last person to call you?
The Llama-ettes to tell me all about their visit to Sully Plantation today.

Do you think people talk about you behind your back?
My ears don't burn just because of my blood pressure.

Did you watch cartoons as a child?
I could pin the year of production of every Road Runner cartoon by the music and artistic style by the time I was about eight.

How many siblings do you have?
Two, one of each. Among us, we have six girls and one boy. So much for odds.

Are you shy around the opposite sex?
I'm self-conscious around everybody.

What movie do you know every line to?
Monty Python and the Holy Grail/ The Adventures of Baron Munchausen/ The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (not that there are that many in this one)

Do you own any band t-shirts?
Nope. Never did.

What is your favorite salad dressing?
Bleu Cheese.

Do you read for fun?
Whenever I get the chance.

Do you cry a lot?
Nope, not much at all. I'm a mean old man.

Who was the last person to text message you?
Don't have text messaging and don't want it.

Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop?

Are you currently wanting any piercings or tattoos?
Ain't. Gonna. Happen.

What is the weather like?
Too darn hot. I think we may be in for a T-storm.

Would you ever date someone covered in tattoos?
Honestly, I have never ever seen a tattoo that I considered to be in any way attractive.

Is sex before marriage wrong?
All I remember from my own wedding morning is that we really didn't have the time or privacy for that sort of thing.

When was the last time you slept on the floor?
Can't recall.

How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
A good seven or eight. But I only ever get five or six. You can see that the numbers don't add up.

Are you in love or lust?
Sometimes both, sometimes one or the other, sometimes neither.

Are your days full and fast-paced?
I'm praying for a spell of empty and torpid.

Do you pay attention to calories on the back of packages?
Nope. Mr. Metabolism has kept me within visiting distance of my college weight for almost 20 years now.

How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
Don't Panic!

Are you picky about spelling and grammar?
Absolutely. Probably because I've always been such a horrid speller myself.

Have you ever been to Six Flags?
In fact, I've been to the original near Arlington, Texas. And every Texas schoolkid knows that the name comes from the fact that the state has been under the flags of six different governments over the course of its history.

Do you get along better with the same or opposite sex?
Matter of fact, I prefer the ladies. And for some mysterious reason, middle aged women, especially liberal middle aged women, like me a lot. Go figure, but I owe several job hires to this fact.

Do you like cottage cheese?

Do you sleep on your side, tummy, or back?
I flip between back and side several times a night.

Have you ever bid for something on eBay?
Nope, but the Missus has become quite the sniper.

Do you enjoy giving hugs?
Nope, not at all.

What song did you last sing out loud?
"Unbelievable" by Diamond Rio.

What is your favorite TV show?
Of all time? Or right now?

Oh, garsh, this is too complicated to try and suss out.

Which celebrity, dead or alive, would you want to have lunch with?
Hmmm. It depends on what is meant by "celebrity". Stretching it, I'd like to meet G.B. Shaw, whose birthday happened to be yesterday.

Last time you had butterflies in your stomach?
Most of this summer.

What one thing do you wish you had?
The power to require blooper clips on all DVD's.

Favorite lyrics?
Another one too complicated to suss out now.

Too. Many. Jokes. Can't. Process. Can't. Prioritize.

Robbo, have you ever been to a Six Flags park outside of Texas? I've always wondered whether they fly the six (Spanish, French, Mexican, Lone Star, CSA, and USA) flags over those parks, too.

No, I never have. Bet they don't, though.
