What Da Hell
Saw this on Fury.com and decided that since I'd seen it, I could pass it along. Of course, I'm not going to bother e-mailing it. But here it is, for all the world to see:
Welcome to the next edition of getting to know your friends. What you're supposed to do is copy (not forward) this entire email and paste it onto a new email that you'll send. Change all of the answers so they apply to you. Then, send this to a whole bunch of people you know including the person who sent it to you. The theory is that you'll learn a lot of little known facts about your friends.
- What time do you wake up in the morning?
Usually around 10 or 10:30 AM. That's one of the nice things about being self-employed; the boss doesn't care when I show up for work.
- If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be?
Hell if I know, honestly. Stephen Hawking might be interesting (if I could follow what the hell he was talking about), but the conversation itself could be a problem what with him having to use the wheelchair computer and all. Or I could go the opposite direction and say Vanessa from the Man Show, so I could just look at her boobs.
- Gold or silver?
Eh, silver I guess. Who gives a shit, really?
- What was the last film you saw at the cinema that you liked?
- Favorite TV shows?
Star Trek: The Next Generation, The Man Show and Stargate SG-1.
- What do you have for breakfast?
A bowl of whatever cereal's handy. Usually Cheerios or Kix.
- What would you hate to be left in a room with?
Something that smells bad.
- Can you touch your nose with your tongue?
- What inspires you?
The thought that one of these days I might do something important enough to be remembered for. Prob'ly not gonna happen though.
- What's your middle name?
- Beach, city or country?
City. But one near the beach.
- Summer, winter, spring or fall?
Winter. The air is clean and cool (or cold, depending on your point of view) and there's snow on the ground. Points off for being in the city though, where one side of my car gets covered in slush/dirt/salt.
- Favorite ice cream?
Whatever the flavor of the day is at Strickland's.
- Buttered, plain or salted popcorn?
Buttered. Lost and lots of butter. Dripping would actually be good. Still wanna know why I weight in at 210?
- Favorite color?
Dark blue. Not quite the color of my car (but that's one of the reasons I like it); a little bluer than that.
- Favorite car?
Well, speaking of cars... Dunno. I like Acuras, and the Subaru WRX is cool. If I had the money to spend, that'd probably be the car I'd get.
- Favorite sandwich filling?
The sweet-onion chicken teriyaki at Subway. <mind location="gutter">Or, me between a couple of hot chicks!</mind>
- True love?
Well, I'd like to think I'd know her if I saw her.
- What characteristics do you despise?
Douchebag-ness. Not just being an asshole (I'm one of those, after all) but someone who seems to go out of their way to be arrogant, rude and annoying. They can all play in traffic.
- Favorite flower?
Any one I'm not allergic to.
- You had a big win in the lottery, how long would you wait to tell people?
A week or so before going public (I think you have to in PA) so I could tell my immediate family and maybe gloat to a couple friends. But the world would never find out if I had my way.
- Fizzy or still water as a drink?
Still. Fizzy water is OK in the form of pop, but not all the time.
- What color is your bathroom?
Allegedly, white. With butt-ugly purple toilet, shower and sink. And some ugly quasi-cream color for the shower stall itself. I hate my bathroom.
- How many keys on your keyring?
*Checks* Six. Front door, apartment door, laundry room door, car door and backups for front and apartment in case they're needed. And the car alarm widget.
- Where would you retire to?
Dunno. Maybe some place in Europe.
- Can you juggle?
Only if you're talking about my workload. The throwing-balls-around thing requires coordination and is thus out of my league.
- Favorite day of the week?
Sunday. The Browns are on. Unless they get some MNF lovin', in which case Monday would be my favorite. During football's off-season I like Saturdays, since I can sleep in and have the whole weekend ahead of me to waste.
- Red or white wine?
Beer. Wine sucks.
- What did you do for your last birthday?
Not much of anything, really. Twenty-six ain't exactly a big deal.
- Do you carry a donor card?
Yes, but if anyone starts using me for spare parts before every possible thing has been tried I'll haunt them.
- Say something nice about the person that sent this to you:
I would if I knew the guy at all (I think I met him for all of 5 minutes once). I know he used to work for Yahoo, which makes him pretty smart. There. That should count.
- Who do you least expect to send this back to you?
Everybody, since I'm not sending it to anyone.
- Who is the person you expect to send this back first?
Infer an answer from my last response.
There. Now you know even more pointless stuff about me. Enjoy.
