49 38 Questions for Grownups

Tired of all of those surveys made up by high school kids?! 'Have you ever kissed someone? Missed someone? Told someone you loved them? Drank alcohol? Bah!

So instead, here: 49 questions for the people who are a little older!

What bill do you hate paying the most?
Um... what?

Where was the last place you had a romantic dinner?
Define "romantic"? I don't think that my notion of "romantic" would be considered such by the population as a whole. I went to Mimi's with femetal and joreth not too long ago, and drew a stick figure of Shara murdering someone. Does that count?

What do you really want to be doing right now?
femetal and joreth.

How many colleges did you attend?
If you count the 2 summer classes that I took at USF, 2. Everything else was at UF.

Why did you choose the shirt that you have on right now?
I like it, it's pro-science (sort of, since it's an Aperture Science shirt), and it's work safe.

What are your thoughts on gas prices?
The more they go up the faster we get electric cars.

First thought when the alarm went off this morning?
Dunno. I don't generally start recording until after I've started moving. I think that "The Bed's Too Big Without You" by The Police was running through my head, though.

Last thought before going to sleep last night?
The last thing I clearly remember is envisioning my brain being pulled out of my head and packed in a box. Seriously.

Do you miss being a child?
LOL!! How can I miss something that I haven't yet parted with?

What errand/chore do you despise?
The chore I hated most in the world was mowing the lawn. Now we pay to have it done! :-)

Get up early or sleep in?

Have you found real love yet?
A few times!

Favorite lunch meat:
Do veggie burgers count? If I've gotta pick flesh, strange as it may seem I *really* love liverwurst.

What do you get every time you go into Wal-Mart?
A feeling that I'm buying low-quality products?

Beach or lake?
Clothing-optional swimming pool! Second choice: Clothing optional beach. (See a trend?)

Do you think marriage is an outdated ritual?
As a whole, no, but it's in desperate need of a revamp. Get government out and/or expand it to include LGBT and poly groups!

Sopranos or Desperate Housewives?
I've seen like 3 episodes of Sopranos and none of Desperate Housewives. I guess I'll go with Sopranos, since it has violence and nudity.

What famous person would you like to have dinner with?
Hmmmm... Dawkins? Feynman? (I've never had dinner with a zombie before!) Miss Poly Manners? ;-)

Have you ever crashed your vehicle?
Amazingly, no. I have spun out when I had a tire blow out, though. That was an exciting 10 seconds!

Ever had to use a fire extinguisher for its intended purpose?
Oddly enough, I don't believe so.

Ring tone?
I have a few, but my default is a .wav of Gir (my laptop) saying "Alert! Incoming voice call!" (using Zarvox.)

Strangest place you have ever brushed your teeth?
In my mouth?!?

Somewhere in California you've never been and would like to go?
Cupertino, and San Jose so joreth can show me around her home town.

Do you go to church?
Not anymore.

At this point in your life would you rather start a new career or a new relationship?
Well, I just started a new relationship and it's going smashingly well, but I'm not looking to add another right now. A new career could be exciting as hell if it's the right career. Not sure what that would be, though.

How old are you?

Do you have a go to person?
I "go to" Kim for so many things that one could put forth a reasonable argument that I am not, in fact, a complete and autonomous person.

Are you where you want to be in life?
There's always room for improvement, but holy cow- my life kicks ass!!

Growing up, what were your favorite cartoons?
Hmmm... Superfriends, Robotech, Flash Gordon, Transformers

What about you do you think has changed the most?
I'm bigger. I'm also allowed to buy porn, drive a car, eat cereal for dinner, and play video games pretty much whenever I want to.

Looking back at high school were they the best years of your life?

Are there times you still feel like a kid?
It would be more accurate to say that there are times when I don't.

Did you ever own troll dolls?

Did you have a pager?
When? I used to have one for work, but not as a kid.

Where was the hang out spot when you were a teenager?
It changed. My house, Mission Bell, a friend's house, Main Street (on Dale Mabry, where Mimi's is now. There used to be an arcade there.)

Were you the type of kid you would want your children to hang out with?
My "children" are robots, so sure! I've always taken good care of my toys.

Who do you think impacted your life the most?
Kim. Sure, we didn't meet until I was 18, but her impact on my life has been monumental.

Was there a teacher or authority figure that stood out for you?
There were a few.

--Okay. Your turn!
