Stolen from Tex's blog:

1Do you like bleu cheese?  No.
2.  Have you ever smoked?   Yes. Very briefly, in college. Like not even a full pack.
3.  Do you own a gun?  No.
4.  What is your favorite flavor?  I have no idea. Different moods call for different flavors.
5.  Do you get nervous before doctor visits?  This seems like a rich person's problem.
6.  What do you think of hot dogs?  Microwave-friendly, not too expensive if you buy the right kind, not bad tasting.  Off my menu though, thanks to my weird semi-vegetarian diet.
7.  Favorite movie?  Yikes.  Annie Hall, Raiders of the Lost Ark, or Casablanca.  It's tough to choose across genres. 
8.  What do you prefer to drink in the morning?  Iced coffee.
9.  Do you do push ups?  No.
10.  What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?  I no longer wear jewelry.
11.  Favorite hobby?  Reading, I guess. 
12.  Do you have attention deficit disorder?  I don't think so.
13.  What’s the one thing you dislike about yourself?  Ha. Only one?  That I hate my life, but I lack the courage to end it.
14.  What is your middle name?  It's the same as my father's first name.
15.  Name three thoughts at this moment:  The pres. election showed the true colors of a lot of people, I need to finish a story I started writing, need to complain to the audiobook company but complaining is exhausting.  
16.  Name three drinks you drink regularly:  Iced coffee, Sparkletts water, store brand vitamin water - cherry flavored.

20.  How do you ring in the new year?  With a bottle - usually Kahlua.
21.  Where would you like to go?  A better place.
22.  Do you own slippers?  Not officially.  I do own a pair of shoes that have become slippers.
23.  What color shirt are you wearing right now?  I am currently shirtless. 
24.  Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?  Huh?
25.  Can you whistle?  Not really. Not enough to matter.
26.  What are your favorite colors?  Black? 
27.  Would you be a pirate?  Depends.  Not thrilled about living in Pittsburgh.  But if my wench looks like Keira Knightley, I'd have to consider it.
28.  What songs do you sing in the shower?  I take requests from women.
29.  Favorite girl's name?  Gosh. Laura, Stephanie, Monica, Erin, Jennifer (because I hate myself), Michelle, Kelly, Shannon, Ariel
30.  Favorite boy’s name?  Not either of mine.  Sheesh.

40.  What’s your favorite candy?  Chocolate. 
41.  What’s your favorite sports team?  Eagles, followed by whoever is playing the Cowboys.
42.  Favorite month of the year?  They all suck.  I guess I'll pick September.



  1. Aw, some of these answers are depressing. I did laugh at #5, though. When I read the question, I thought, “Who can afford a doctor?”

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. I'm sure my problems are my own fault. It's just tough to admit it because I'm biased.

      Glad you laughed. :)

  2. I agree with AJ above; some of these answers are quite sad. I did laugh out loud about being a pirate...

    Take care, E Man...

    1. I might see Jackie tomorrow. Get all festive and what-not.

  3. thirteen concerns me, dude. i feel you on this one, but i wouldn't call ending it courageous. living it's courageous.

    and the philadelphia eagles? your favorite football team is the PHILADELPHIA EAGLES? as in the team that dons green uniforms and once employed michael vick, a man who allowed dogs to maul each other for sport? as in the team that, this year, has lost more games than it's won and is currently ranked last in its division. ten other teams in their conference have better records than theirs. the only ones that are worse are the rams, the niners and dabears. please. enlighten me as to what it is you love about this team.

    1. Ha. Vick wasn't an Eagle when he did that stuff. He had already served his time when they signed him. Though I did stop buying my annual Eagles item while he was with the team.

      Anyway, my father's from Philly.
