Some meme or other

I picked this up via Ruminations, who picked it up someplace else, and well, you get the idea.

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?

Hmm, I don't actually recall looking in the mirror this morning. Oh, yea, I did brush my hair, so that counts. First thought: I need a haircut.

2. Favorite planet?

Uranus (you can never have enough Uranus jokes).

3. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?

Don't carry one.

4. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone?

If I carried one, I would be the one leaving the basic ring on.

5. Do you “label” yourself?


6. What does your watch look like?

Pocket watch. Silvery metal color.

7. What were you doing at midnight last night?

Sleeping. I usually don't stay up late during the week as the commute to work is quite the pain.

8. What did your last text message you received on your cell say?

I told you, I don't carry one.

9. What's a word that you say a lot?

Carajo (Spanish for "hell," but not very nice). I also use a few other dialogue enhancers, just not in polite company.

10. Last furry thing you touched?

Autumn and Isis, my cats.

11. Favorite age you have been so far?

Hmm, not sure, though 13 was a fairly good year. 18 was better. I finally got out of the house.

12. Your worst enemy?

Incompetent people and people with no spine.

13. What is your current desktop picture?

The logo for The International Order of Librarians--Ordo Bibliotheca. (I am a proud member and fan of Rex Libris. Sapere Aude).

14. What was the last thing you said to someone?

"If you need anything else, I'll be here for a while yet." To a patron at the reference desk.

15. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly what would it be?

I suppose flying, but only because a million bucks does not go very far these days. Make it about 20 million, then we can talk.

16. Do you like someone?

Yes, and she knows who it is.

17. The last song you listened to?

Evanescence's "Bring Me to Life"

18. What time of day were you born?

Don't recall, even though mom did tell me, but I think it was afternoon.

19. What's your favorite number?


20. Where did you live in 1987?

Humacao, Puerto Rico. It was my last year of high school, and boy, am I glad I left (none too thrilled about high school. College was great though).

21. Are you jealous of anyone?


22. Is anyone jealous of you?

That'd be the day, hahaha. You kidding? Who the hell could be jealous of me?

23. Where were you when 9/11 happened?

I was in graduate school, during my previous life as an English major. I was about to leave the apartment when my wife told me about it.

24. Do you consider yourself kind?

Most of the time. If you treat me kind, the odds improve.

25. If you had to get a tattoo, where would it be?

Well, if I had to, probably on the shoulder or shoulder blade, so I can hide it under a shirt if I had to. Nothing big.

26. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be?

Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian. Actually, I would love to learn a new language, just about any language.

27. Would you move for the person you loved?

Yes, but I am married. If I was single, it's even odds.

28. What's your life motto?

It can vary. There are a few favorites. My favorite as of late is "Lead Me, follow Me, or get the hell out of my way."

29. What's your favorite town/city?

Bloomington, IN was pretty good (not perfect, but pretty good).

30. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper and mailed it?

So long ago that I can't even remember. Do cover letters for job applications count? In that case, it was almost three years ago. And I do send out Christmas cards. But personal letters, pretty much zilch.

31. Can you change the oil on a car?

Nope. I did not inherit the male gene of feeling macho when it comes to cars. However, I would like to learn how to do it.

32. Your first love: what is the last thing you heard about him/her?

That she had to work this morning. I married her, so I will see her when I get home.

33. How far back do you know about your ancestry?

Not too far back. A few things about the better half's side, not as much on my side other than some names.

34. The last time you dressed fancy, what did you wear and why did you dress fancy?

I wore a suit with tie. My brother's wedding a few years back.

35. Have you been burned by love?

Haven't we all? Yea, I have my little moments. It's only human, if you are in love that is.

I'd take flying - If we could fly, we could make many millions of bucks, eh?
