TMI Tuesday

I'll be taking some time off from Top 10 Tuesdays.

This is a list of questions I found on a blog I'm following.  I'm ignoring the ones I can't or don't want to answer.  There are 50 in the original.

Credit to https://daisywillows.wordpress.com/ for posting this list of questions.

1.  What are you wearing?
A dark blue ESPN Fantasy Football League Champion t-shirt, Hawaiian shorts ( a weird shade of green with pictures of Hawaiian people doing Hawaiian things) , blue socks, black boxer briefs, and glasses.  I'm at home now, so I'm not wearing my public clothes.

2.  Ever been in love?
Yes. With my best friend in college.

3.  Ever had a terrible break-up?
If friends can break up, yes.  See above.

4.  How tall are you?
Between 6'0" and 6'1" in bare feet.

5.  Any tattoos?
Yes.  Either 9 or 3. I have a cluster of sorts on each arm and one on my upper back.  I think there's nine, but other people have counted each cluster as one tat, which would make the total three.

6.  Any piercings?
No. I had my ears pierced for a brief time in the late 1990's.

7.  Favorite show?
Probably Seinfeld is my favorite all-time.  I don't have a TV currently.

8. Favorite bands?
Doors, Beatles, Stones, U2 back in the day, 10,000 Maniacs in their Merchant era, Garbage maybe.

9.  Something you miss?
Having hope for my future.

10.  Favorite song?
Ha.  I can't narrow it down to twenty, let alone one.

11.  How old are you?
Early 40's.

12.  Zodiac sign?

13.  Quality you look for in a partner?
Sexual Partner:  Sass.
Romantic Partner:  Decency.

14.  Favorite actor?
When I was young, it was John Wayne.  His movies were on TBS all the time.  Then it was Robert De Niro, because I had gotten more cynical.  Nobody now.

15.  Turn on?

16.  Turn off?
Diva attitude.

17.  Fears?
Losing my teeth.  Being homeless.  Prison.  Male health issues.

18.  Last time you said you loved someone?
1996 I think.  I don't tell people I love them unless I do.

19.  Last book you read?
An overview of the paintings at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

20.  The book you're currently reading?
The Schirmer Inheritance, by Eric Ambler, at night.  An album by album break-down of the Beatles' career in the daytime.  A collection of erotic short stories is in progress, but has stalled a bit.

21.  Last show you watched?
Miami Vice, on YouTube.

22.  Last person you talked to?
The cashier at the deli.

23.  The relationship between you and the person you last texted?
I don't have a texting gizmo.

24.  Favorite food?
I like the foods that are bad for me.  (sigh)

25.  Last place you were?
The deli up the street.

26.  Do you have a crush?
Not really, but not totally no I guess.  I have weird feelings about a barista, but it's complicated.

27. Favorite flavor of sweet?

28.  What instruments do you play?
None currently.  I played piano when I was young.  But I haven't played since college.

29.  Last sport you played?

30.  Who should answer these questions next?
Jenn, Birgit, GCO, and anybody whose blog I follow.  Or just whoever feels like it.       


  1. If I wasn't I. The A to Z challenge I would do this right away but I will have to mark this down and answer all these In May. Having no hope for the future is sad. I don't expect to be the next housewife of who care's Ville but I still have hope to travel more, enjoy each day despite my pain, eat chocolate every once in a while and see the Kardiashain's ass deflate in front of the live cameras. I will not say my weight though:) you need to look for a Grace Kelly type. Hitchcock said she was someone who was very classy but could be a whore in the bedroom...something like that:)

    1. Yeah. I removed the weight one.

      I used to run past a statue of Grace Kelly's father. But that's a story for another day.

  2. i'm reasonably attractive and intelligent? whoo. be still my heart, dude. this from a man who's profile pic is snoopy atop his dog house. :]

    so what's up with you and this barista? if she too is reasonably attractive and intelligent and single, perhaps she might appreciate the attention of a possibly attractive and intelligent guy? maybe you should ask her out for coffee. :]

    i'm doing all fifty of those questions, pal. ALL FIFTY.

    1. Ha. He's typing his masterpiece. As one does. Maybe someday I'll catch up to modern technology and be able to post pics of myself.

      It's complicated. But I can say there would be no point in asking her out.

  3. Replies
    1. Thanks. I think it was a combination of not wanting to do the Top 10 Tuesday topic and kind of liking list making.

  4. This is an interesting glimpse into your life, Mr. Mystery Man. I did chuckle a bit when I read that you last watched Miami Vice on YouTube. The last video I watched on YouTube was Glenn Frey's "You Belong to the City," which was, as you know, featured in Miami Vice and the video stars Don Johnson.

    1. Of course. Frey appeared on an episode, as a pilot for drug smugglers.

    2. I *think* I may remember that, but I'm not sure. I watched MV back in the day, but that was many moons ago.

    3. ericka! i'd forgotten about that song. and now that it's in my head, it will be on repeat for the rest of the day. THANKS.

  5. interesting list -- also interesting and sort of fun to find other people who don't bother with TV or SMS texting -- :D.

    1. Yeah. Cable's a luxury.

      I don't think I can hold out much longer on a cell phone though.

    2. wait. WAIT. you don't have a cell phone?
