Getting to know me, getting to know all about me….

Vectored from epi_lj, another long meme with many questions about me me me!

1. How tall are you barefoot?

2. Have you ever been cheated on?

3. Do you own a gun?
No. I did at one time, but I got rid of it.

4. If you had a mental disorder, what would it be?
Er, I have no idea. I begin to think at times I already have one, and certainly don’t need another one, if so.

5. How many letters are in your crush’s name?
Counting only active, serious crushes….four, five, five, and six.

6. What do you think of hot dogs?
I don’t really. I do eat them from time to time, but I don’t give them much thought. If I did, I probably wouldn’t eat them.

7. What’s your favorite Christmas song?
Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl.

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
I usually have a glass of Diet Coke. I’ve been trying to cut back on my soda intake, so I generally am currently only drinking them with meals, and not in between, which keeps me down to 2-3 a day.

9. Do you do push-ups?
Not regularly. I hate exercise for exercise’s sake, and would rather find an activity that exercises me. Not that I’ve been so good about that, either.

10. Have you ever done ecstasy?
Nope. I’ve experienced ecstasy, or at the very least, euphoria. But I have never done the drug.

11. Do you like DisneyWorld?
Ain’t never been there. They tell me it’s nice.

12. Do you like the rain?
I’m only happy when it rains. Well, not really, but I do like watching it rain, and I love the fresh smell everything has afterwards. And I love thunderstorms, especially big booming ones with flashes of lightening that crack the sky with light.

13. Do you own a knife?
I own an entire drawer full of them. I don’t carry a pocketknife of any variety though.

14. What do you smell like?
*sniffs himself experimentally* Um, I smell like me. I don’t tend to wear cologne or other scents, and I try to be fastidious about being clean, but aside from that…

15. Do you have A.D.D.?
I don’t know. I sometimes wonder about that, but I’ve never looked into it.

16. Full initials?

17. Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment.
1. I miss aiela
2. I wish it was 5pm so I could go home.
3. I’m looking forward to spending some time with kitanzi tonight.

18. Name the last 3 things you have bought today/yesterday.
Hrm. Didn’t go out a lot this weekend. The last three things i purchased, however, not counting food:

1. A new computer
2. New tires for kitanzi‘s car
3. Two cookbooks from Amazon recommended by a friend.

19. Name five drinks you regularly drink.
Diet Coke, water, lemonade, sweet tea, and milk.

20. What time did you wake up today?
5:30am. This is about an hour earlier than normal, but I needed to take aiela to the train station in time for her to get to the airport for her flight home.

21. Can you spell?
Pretty well, though I’m prone to typos when I’m not paying attention.

22. Current worry?
I worry a lot. I always have, and people who have known me intimately will attest to it. I try not to let it keep me from actually being productive, and I often succeed.

23. Current hate?
I don’t have time or energy for hate. It’s a useless emotion.

24. Favorite place to be?
In the arms of one of my sweeties. There’s no place better, really.

25. Least favorite place to be?
Standing in line at the DMV.

26. Where do you want to be?
In the arms of one of my sweeties, where else? 🙂

27. Do you own slippers?
I do, though I rarely wear them. I have big fuzzy purple boot slippers.

28. Where do you think you will be in 10 years?
I have no idea. I look forward to finding out.

29. Do you burn or tan?
I stay out of the sun if I can help it. I tend towards burning.

30. Yellow or blue?
Blue. I’ve always preferred cool colours to warm ones.

31. Would you give up your current life to be a pirate?
Who says my current life *isn’t* as a pirate? To be serious, probably not.

33. What songs do you sing in the shower?
Whatever songs come to mind at the moment. I know a lot of songs, and I’ll sing them spontaneously at any time.

34. What did you fear was going to get you at night as a child?
I don’t recall ever really having fears like that, though I do recall that I used to be spooked by the illusion of someone looking through my bedroom window back when we lived on Wildcat Road in Williamston. It was just a shadow from the utility light on the edge of the yard, but it was freaky.

35. What’s in your pockets right now?
My wallet and car-keys.

36. Last thing that made you laugh?
I don’t recall precisely. Something during my last conversation with aiela, I’m sure.

37. Best bed sheets you had as a child?
Oh, definitely the flannel Star Wars sheets. Those rocked!

38. Worst injury you’ve ever had?
Hrm. I’ve been fortunate not to have too many of them. Probably the time when I was 15 and I took a corner on my bike onto an uphill slope and didn’t know there was sand dumped all over the road. My back wheel went straight up in the air and I flew chin-first into the pavement. Mom had to rush me to the hospital for stitches, and I had a faint scar for years. (I may still, my beard covers it.)

39. What is your GPA?
My high school GPA was 3.19. I don’t recall what my college GPA was for the time I was there.

40. How many TVs do you have in your house?
Just one. Not entirely sure what I’d do with more than one.

41. Who is your loudest friend?
Probably fleetfootmike when he’s got the amp turned to 11. 🙂

42. Who is your most silent friend?
I don’t really know. My friends are not necessarily a boisterous bunch, but neither are they shy and retiring. Besides, one of the things I select on is intellect and the ability to have an interesting conversation. So most of my friends aren’t really all that laconic.

43. Does someone have a crush on you?
Goodness, I hope so. And if they do, I hope they’ll tell me so I know. I’m horrible at figuring those things out on my own. 🙂

44. Do you wish on stars?
Of course. How else do you get your wishes if you don’t make them on stars?

45. What was the last song you heard?
The song currently playing is “Sycamore Tree” by cahdla

48. What song do you want played at your funeral?
Oh, something loud and bouncy and happy-making. I want my funeral to be a celebration of my life, not a mourning of my death. Crank up the party tunes and dance, dance, dance!

49. What were you doing at 12AM last night?
Absolutely none of your business. 😉

50. What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up?
That I needed to get up and take aiela to the train station, and thus could not go back to sleep as my body was urgently suggesting I should contemplate immediately.


Just to see the sky and feel the wind…


I am having that kind of week


  1. 31. Would you give up your current life to be a pirate?
    Who says my current life *isn’t* as a pirate? To be serious, probably not.

    *makes some comment about you and your pursuit of booty*

    Miss you too!

  2. I’m curious as to what the T stands for.

    • Taylor. It’s apparently a family name, as my father had it as well (and in fact, actually went by it in preference to his first name).

  3. your posts are always so warm
