Yes, yes, I know. Lazy. Whatever. I like answering questions and YOU never ask any. Jeez.

Brenda posted this strange and random question meme thing and I felt the need to chime in. Not because I think you care, but because…I haven’t had anything to post lately. Well, that’s not true, I have things but I haven’t typed them yet. Yeah. That’s it.

Ooh, but I did watch two movies recently. I can hear you. You’re saying if you have time to watch movies why don’t you have time to type and to that I say…they were both pretty decent. I watched Undertaking Betty in the middle of the night because…I felt like it. And I like Alfred Molina (Hey Alfie, call me. Let’s get together!) and it was cute. And strange. And a big ol’ mess at the end but you know, I laughed a little, I watched the whole thing, I even got a little choked up at one part so…it worked. I also finally saw Hot Fuzz. Now, I do adore me some Shaun of the Dead and I was a little concerned that this wouldn’t live up to that glory, but it was good. Not great but not far from great. Better than good but hey, dogs can’t look up, right? So yeah. I’d say see it. I think it probably works better if you are really a fan of those cop/buddy movies that it parodies and I haven’t seen a lot of them. I have seen Point Break but not Bad Boys or Supercop and I really, really dislike The Wicker Man, but…I lost my train of thought…Oh right…um. Hot Fuzz is good. That’s all I wanted to say.

OK, anything else? Um…well, this blog gets a fair amount of it’s hits due to this piece of art:
I don’t know why that is but thank you. I am glad you like it, or are appalled by it or whatever. If you’d like it for your very own it is available at the store in the form of greeting cards and if you want it in another form then you can always email.

Your Middle Name: I don’t want to talk about it.

Age: um…38? Yeah, I think that’ it. 38.

Single or Taken: Well, I am married but I don’t know about “Taken” that kind of implies that I was carried away unwillingly, doesn’t it? Oh…right…taken.

Favorite Movie: Probably Animal House. I never ever get tired of it.

Favorite Song or Album: What ever I have mixed recently for the car. Listening to in the car, not for the car itself. The car doesn’t have ears. The car can’t hear. Oh you know what? It’s currently my “Happy, Happy, I’m so freakin’ Happy” mix that I made for Brenda (after the winter “Melancholy Mix for Brenda” sent her spiraling into misery). It’s really happy.

Favorite Band/Artist: Elvis Costello? Yeah, let’s go with that today. Elvis Costello.

Dirty or Clean: Clean please. Very clean. But…only if I don’t have to clean it. Otherwise…kind of passably clean with some dubious spots. Oh…unless you mean my person…then clean and I will do it. Or if you mean my mind…heh. Well…yeah…pretty dirty. BUT I like to have a clean sink. So…yeah, what are we talking about here?

Tattoos and/or Piercings: 3 holes in my ears. One on the left , two on the right. There used to be more but…eh. And I really want a tattoo but I really am a chicken. So not yet. Maybe later.

Do we know each other outside of LJ/Blogger?
We do not. Well, you and I do not…well…I mean, I have met some people but not others. I think…I am confusing myself here.

What's your philosophy on life?
It’s only life. Just live it.

Is the bottle half-full or half-empty?Well depends on what’s in it, doesn’t it? Whisky? Half empty. Milk? Ew, it’s full. Life? Wait…what?

Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest?
Yes I would, but I would feel bad about it and it would probably keep me up nights.

What is your favorite memory of us?
Oh remember that time when we went to that place and they were all like “HEY! You can’t do that here!” and we were all like, “WhatEVER!”?...No? yeah, me neither.

What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
Hatred. Or probably more specifically, being petty and childish. I know I shouldn’t, but I do anyway. And I revel in it…guiltily.

Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: There is nothing odd or interesting about me…pretty odd/interesting, eh?

You can have three wishes (for yourself, so forget all the 'world peace etc' malarkey) - what are they: 1) Freedom from financial worry 2) Health (preferably good) 3) Nicholas Cage as my love slave.
No…wait…that was Brenda’s answer. I do NOT want that. Um…a nice little office space to call my very own.

Can we get together and make a cake?
No. But I will totally make you a cake and bring it to you. What kind do you like? I make a wicked chocolate cake with whipped cream cream cheese icing. And some nice vegan “Crimson Velveteen” cupcakes with Velvet frosting.

Which country is your spiritual home?
The U.K. Specifically, Wales.

What is your big weakness?
My arms, but I’ve been lifting weights and they are getting stronger. Oh…um…books. I buy too many books.

Do you think I'm a good person?
Well,as far as I can tell from here…yes.

What was your best/favorite subject at school?
In elementary school I really only liked reading. In high school I loved biology and hated chemistry, and I only sort of liked English class. In college I loved Shakespeare studies, Chaucer and Middle English Literature and despised statistics and American Lit.

Describe your accent: My mother tells me that when I was first learning to speak I was straight outta Brooklyn..but…um…we don’t know why. I don’t have a true New Jersey accent and I’ve never been able to fake it. I’ve always had a tinge of the southern in there but when I lived in North Carolina I learned how to turn a southern accent on and off. Believe me, you get better service at the Taco Bell.

If you could change anything about me, would you?Not a damn thing, you are perfect just the way you…Who are you again?

What do you wear to sleep?
Layers. Lots and lots of layers. T-shirt, sweatshirt, pj bottoms, sometimes a pair of socks or two.

Trousers or skirts? Neither.

Cigarettes or alcohol? Yes please.

If I only had one day to live, what would we do together?
Such a morbid question. And why are you putting it on me? If it’s your last day, shouldn’t YOU decide?

Will you repost this so I can fill it out for you?
Have at it if you want it.
