BAAAAAAH .... BAAAAAH

Geez ... I am SUCH a sheep when it comes to these surveys ... on 95% of other stuff, especially in real life, I arrogantly will NOT follow a fad, but throw up a semi-interesting survey in L.J. and I'm itching to do it. I must figure out what part of my psyche is responsible for this behavior and send in a shamanic SWAT team to take it out!

Stolen from orien and stacy ...

1. LIVING ARRANGEMENT
Married with children.
2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
Might Is Right by Ragnar Redbeard.
3. WHAT'S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?
Plain blue with a wrist support.
4. FAVORITE BOARD GAME?
Board games ... been a long time ... except for the toddler stuff ... hmmm ... Ouija on entheogens?
5. FAVORITE MAGAZINE?
It was Industry Standard, which just folded ... or Green Egg, which just folded ... maybe Factsheet Five, which is just now coming back from a 5 year span of having folded!
6a. FAVORITE SMELLS?
Sauteed foi gras with some sort of vinaigrette.
6b. LEAST FAVORITE SMELLS?
Oh, please ... I dislike bad smells as much as the next guy, but what kind of wuss has a special bad smell?
7. FAVORITE SOUNDS?
Coins spilling out of a slot machine?
8. FAVORITE THINGS TO DO?
Flying to unstable countries and taking pictures of ruins.
9. WHAT'S THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING?
"Shit, I guess I'm going to have to make it on only two hours of sleep again!"
10. FAVORITE COLOR?
Black, I guess.
11. HOW MANY RINGS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE PHONE?
Well, the machine gets it at 4 (and it's hopeless trying to wrest control back from the machine) ... if I'm at my desk I'll typically get it before the 2nd ring.
12. FUTURE CHILD'S NAME?
Had two daughters. The Wife had the snip-snip after the last one ... if I had a boy he would have very likely been Charles Arthur Rockwell Tripp.
13. WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT IN LIFE?
Remembering that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience and that NONE of this crap here is "real".
14. FAVORITE FOODS?
Foi gras in various forms, Indian buffets, Maki, "Vast Quantities" in general.
15. VANILLA OR CHOCOLATE?
Vanilla.
16. DO YOU LIKE TO DRIVE FAST?
Cars are for people who have made poor location choices.
17. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?
Sleep? Whazzat?
19. WHAT TYPE WAS YOUR FIRST CAR?
My first reaction is "I've never owned a car!", but that is not technically true. I did briefly own a 1982 Pontiac Bonneville station wagon that saved my life when we were "t-boned" by an SUV ... that old beast was built like a tank!
20. FAVORITE FAMOUS PERSON DEAD OR ALIVE?
William F. Buckley.
21. FAVORITE ALCOHOLIC DRINKS?
(sigh) ... I quit drinking 16 years ago ... but I really miss all the funky "Tiki Bar" drinks ... I used to be VERY fond of Zombies!
22. WHAT IS YOUR ZODIAC SIGN?
Sun and Moon in Libra, Aries rising ... almost all my chart is crammed into three houses on one side of it.
23. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS OF BROCCOLI?
I prefer the stems to the florets, frankly.
24. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY JOB YOU WANTED WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I would be the semi-benevolent Dictator For Life ruling Earth (and whatever else we could grab) with an iron fist. {Oh, shut up, Pinky!}
25. IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR?
Silver ... I always wanted it to be silver ... the years are working towards that, it would appear.
26. EVER BEEN IN LOVE?
Frequently, painfully, hopelessly.
27. IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL?
It just smashed on the wall, having only barely missed your head!
28. FAVORITE MOVIES?
I really very rarely get to see movies ... I probably see one a year in a theater, and catch bits and pieces of others on TV ... I rather liked the bits of The Matrix I've seen ... I've probably seen the whole thing now, in half-hour segments ... I've also always been partial to A Clockwork Orange, Bladerunner, and, recently, What Dreams May Come.
29. DO YOU TYPE WITH YOUR FINGERS ON THE RIGHT KEYS?
Typically, yes, unless I'm trying to type and eat or something at the same time.
30. WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED?
Storage drawers.
31. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NUMBER?
I'm your typical Discordian ... 23!

I am a full-fledged member of the High and Holy Church of The N.F.L. ... Chicago Bears sect.
33. SAY ONE NICE THING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU.
Nobody sent it ... I took it willfully ... what's it to ya, copper?
34. PERSON YOU SENT THIS TO WHO IS MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND?
Don't make me hurt you!
35. PERSON YOU SENT THIS TO WHO IS LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND?
No, REALLY ... you're making me angry, and to quote Dr. Banner: "You wouldn't like me when I'm angry!"
36. WHAT CD (OR TAPE) DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR STEREO RIGHT NOW?
Skinny Puppy The Process.
37. FAVORITE TV SHOW?
Uh ... I like a few, but get to see them infrequently ... Farscape, Lexx, Charmed, Buffy, Angel, that new one ... Dead someting ... looks fun too.

Huh? I'm done? Who does 37 questions? Why not 35? Why not 50? Why 37? Now this is going to bug me...
