And Now For Something Not Very Different 

I was reading Crazy Island earlier, and there was a questionaire cribbed from various sources. Since I feel like I should be making a new entry, yet don't really have anything to write about, I've decided to answer this myself.

Your name spelled backwards: Kids (jarring chord).

Where were your parents born?: The land of fire and the land of ice. I was the resulting explosion.

What is the last thing you downloaded onto your computer?: A pair of songs from Cowboy Bebop.

What’s your favorite restaurant?: Probably Taco Bell. Basically any place that the food is edible.

Last time you swam in a pool?: May of 2002.

Have you ever been in a school play?: Yes, in Kindergarten. My class sang "If I Knew You Were Coming, I'd Have Baked a Cake". They were good, but I outclassed them. I totally rocked the house, but there unfortunately weren't any talent scouts in the audience that summer night.

How many kids do you want?: Three. One for breakfast, one for lunch, and one for dinner.

Type of music you dislike most?: Any song that has its own dance.

Are you registered to vote?: Yes

Do you have cable?: DirecTV, baby.

Have you ever ridden on a moped?: No, but I did trip over one once.

Ever prank call anybody?: I've called a lot of people and breathed heavily, BUT WHO SAYS I'M JOKING?

Ever get a parking ticket?: No. Parking is free here in Mississippi.

Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving?: No, but I might try SCCA racing some day, if I can find a cheap beater sports car.

Farthest place you ever traveled: Well, unless you count that trying spiritual journey in which I discovered that Velveeta cheese makes a really good sandwhich, probably either Pennsylvania or Minnesota. Or the trip I took back to Mississippi during the time that I actually lived in Minnesota.

Do you have a garden?: No, but I might plant one. Either Soundgarden or Memory Garden, I can't decide which. Whichever one, I'll be sure to plant the "Seed of Destruction" and practice "Sowing the Seeds of Love".

What’s your favorite comic strip? Kevin and Kell

Do you really know all the words to your national anthem?: I'm a little confused on that whole "ramparts" part.

Bath or Shower, morning or night?: Shower at night. Followed by a snail mucus facial. Works wonders.

Best movie you’ve seen in the past month?: Donnie Darko

Favorite pizza topping?: Bell pepper

Chips or popcorn?: Lasagne

What color lipstick do you usually wear?: I'm of the male persuasion, and do not wear lipstick.

Have you ever smoked peanut shells?: No. Good shit?

Have you ever been in a beauty pageant?: No. I'd have to cut my hair and shave my mustache. Screw that.

Orange Juice or apple?: Whichever one is orange colored. I can't remember which.

Who was the last person you went out to dinner with and where did you dine?:
Does eating at a restaurant with my parents count? If so, I don't remember which the first was, because I was probably 2 years old.

Favorite type chocolate bar?:Peanut Butter Twix

When was the last time you voted at the polls?:
This'll be my first year.

Last time you ate a homegrown tomato?:
Probably around 8 years ago. I'd rather have a store-bought one, on the whole.

Have you ever won a trophy?:
Honor Roll, Clarkdale Elementary, 1st grade.

Are you a good cook?: Gag-inducingly good.

Do you know how to pump your own gas?: Yes, and change my own oil, and perform most major automotive repairs. You've hit my hobby, there.

Ever order an article from an infomercial?: No, but sometimes if I can't sleep I'll get up, drink some coke, and make fun of infomercials, MST3K style. Sometimes - especially if I'm really tired - I'll come up with a real zinger that I write down and use at some point later. This works well with the news and music videos, as well.

Sprite or 7-up?: Dr. Pepper

Have you ever had to wear a uniform to work?: Yes. The black cap showed up a lot of dandruff, too. Damn McDonald's. Damn them to hell.

Last thing you bought at a pharmacy? Oral steroids and antibiotics for a throat condition a year ago. I have robbed a few since then, though, does that count?

Ever throw up in public? Yep. Ate too much once when I was a kid and left a river of stomach juices outside of a diner. It was a remarkably refreshing experience, for some reason.

Would you prefer being a millionaire or find true love?: Given the chance, millionaire. Love is a lot more likely to happen eventually.

Do you believe in love at first sight?: No.

Ever call a 1-900 number?: No, but I did call 976-DROP-DRAWERS once.

Can ex’s be friends?: If they're willing to not act like the complete fucktards that ex's usually act like.

Who was the last person you visited in a hospital?: My father, when he had bypass surgery about ten years ago. I tend to avoid hospitals.

Did you have a lot of hair when you were a baby?: Hell if I know.

What message is on your answering machine?: An automated woman's voice saying "Please leave a message after the beep". I guess it's supposed to be voice mail, but I don't even know the difference.

What’s your all time favorite Saturday Night Live Character?: BUCKWHEAT!

What was the name of your first pet?: When I was born my family had a dark grey cat named Velvet. It was very mean. Used to call me names, and try to convince me to kill my neighbors in the name of my Lord Satan.

What is in your purse?: A Ruger Redhawk .44 Magnum revolver, with an 8" barrel and a bright chrome finish, with a genuine walnut handle.

Favorite thing to do before bedtime?: Pace for a few minutes and reflect on some goofy crap that doesn't need reflection.

What is one thing you are grateful for today?: Nothing really. To whom would I owe the gratitude?

There. That was fun, and quite candid. I'll have to try that again sometime.

Hah...see? A stupid harmless meme can be fun sometimes. I don't usually do them myself. Once in awhile though I find one that strikes my fancy.

Your answers are by far the most intrigueing...
