Dancing Gir

Meme Sheep!

Ganked from terriaminute
This is one of those 'answer the questions' memes.

1. What is your occupation right now?
Desktop support monkey for a call center. It's largely thankless and menial but it does provide a wide array of hats to wear, ranging from "mouse replacer/monitor carrier" to "network admin" tasks,

2. What color are your socks right now?
White

3. What are you listening to right now?
The sound of the car on the road, femetal's iPod, and the car telling Kim to turn left (just this moment)

4. What was the last thing that you ate?
We ate dinner at Cracker Barrel. I had scrambled eggs, a dish of corn, and the most amazing pancakes! They were delicious like hummus is delicious. Yeah. That good.

5. Can you drive a stick shift?
Yup.

6. Last person you spoke to on the phone?
Just called my mom a short while ago to let her know that we're about 30 minutes out from her house.

7. Do you like the person who sent this to you?
Oh yes, in ways that would've likely gotten me killed in a duel in earlier centuries. ;-)

8. How old are you today?
39, but not for much longer.

9. What is your favorite sport to watch on TV?
Um... what? Since both Dollhouse and The Sarah Connor Chronicles have been cancelled, there's nothing on television that I'm especially keen on taking the time to watch.

10. What is your favorite drink?
I drink diet Mountain Dew (or, as the new label calls it, "Mtn Dew") in frightening quantities. As far as alcoholic beverages go, Guinness is my staple, though Young's Double Chocolate Stout is about on par with it.

11. Have you ever dyed your hair?
I've bleached it shock white many times, and may do so again. The closest I've come to actually dying it is using temporary spray-in color.

12. Favorite food?
Sushi, hummus

13. What is the last movie you watched?
We watched The Nightmare Before Christmas last night while packing. :-) The last movie we saw in the theater was Zombieland (I think)

14. Favorite day of the year?
Any day during Dragon*Con!

15. How do you vent anger?
Depends on why I'm angry. Sometimes I rant online, sometimes I vent to Kim, sometimes I play video games, and sometimes I just get a good night's sleep. When those don't work, I eat brains or throw my enemies into a volcano.

16. What was your favorite toy as a child?
Depends on what point during my childhood! As a kid it was probably my Atari, followed by my Commodore 64 after I got older.

17. What is your favorite season?
Winter. I love living in Florida, but really enjoy the cold and desolation of winter nights.

18. Cherries or Blueberries?
Blueberries, though I don't have a strong preference. Variety is good!

19. Do you want your friends to e-mail you back?
Um... sure! What about?

20. Who is the most likely to respond?
Nobody. This meme is a month old. :-)

21. Who is most likely not to respond?
trogdor_the_dog, for obvious reasons.

22. Living arrangements?
I live in a house with femetal, our cat APAR, and various and sundry robots and dust bunnies.

23. When was the last time you cried?
Strangely enough, I don't remember.

24. What is on the floor of your closet?
A big box of porn I recently "inherited".

25. Who is the friend you have had the longest that you are sending to?
If by "sending to" you mean "who on my f-list has been my friend the longest?", it's probably kephra.

26. What did you do last night?
Packed for our Thanksgiving trip to South Carolina.

27. What are you most afraid of?
I'm pretty much equally afraid of death and unemployment. Funny, that.

28. Plain, cheese, or spicy hamburgers?
A veggie burger, but spicy and with pepperjack cheese

29. Favorite dog breed.
Golden/Labrador Retriever hybrid

30. Favorite day of the week?
Saturday *yawn*

31. How many states have you lived in?
Two. New York and Florida

32. Diamonds or Pearls?
Diamonds, definitely. I love me some carbon crystals!

33. What is your favorite flower?
Does a venus flytrap count as a flower? If not, how about a Triffid?

I'm going to add a question to this meme:
34. What question would you add to this meme?
I dunno. Maybe "What's your favorite amino acid?" ;-)

terriaminute's question: What is one of your first childhood memories?
My very earliest memory is of falling down a flight of stairs, but if anyone asks please tell them that my first memory is of waking up at the end of an assembly line. I have a reputation to uphold, ya' know. ;-)
