Lazy blogging

Inspired by Steve:

1. What is your occupation? Managing Editor, IBM eServer Magazine, Mainframe Edition

2. What color is your underwear? I wear boxers. Right now, I'm wearing World Poker Tour boxers that are red, white and blue. And, no, I don't watch WPT, but the last time I went shopping for boxers, that's pretty much what was in stock.

3. What are you listening to now? My computer fan, and the buzz of flourescent lighting, and some guy on a conference call speaker phone in the adjoining office (I hate this place).

4. What was the last thing you ate? Hunan chicken.

5. Do you wish on stars? No, because if I ever find myself on a star, chances are good I'll be all burned up and shit, because stars are hot.

6. If you were a crayon, what color would you be? Mauve

7. How is the weather right now? It was sunny last I checked, but that was two hours ago, and now I'm in my windowless office (I hate this place).

8. Last person you spoke to on the phone? My Dad.

9. Do you like the person who sent this to you? Nobody sent this to me. I had to steal it from Steve's site, but my understanding of Steve is that he's kind of a dick.

10. How old are you today? 30

11. Favorite drink? Crown Royal and Coke.

12. Favorite sport to watch? Curling.

13. Have you ever dyed your hair? No, although, to be fair, for over a decade now I've been shaving my head. Lousy genetic propensity for premature balding. *shakes fist*

14. Do you wear contacts or glasses? Contacts

15. Pets? Two annoying cats that would be better off as landfill.

16. Favorite month? July. Fireworks, brats and beer.

17. Favorite food? Chicken korma with naan bread for dipping.

18. What was the last movie you watched? Oh, God, last night I watched "Roadhouse" on cable. There's a lot more titties in that flick than I remember, not that I'm complaining.

19. Favorite day of the year? I'd have to say Christmas.

20. What do you do to vent anger? Shouting and swearing seem to be my default methods.

21. What was your favorite toy as a child? Transformers (Good Lord did I own a bunch)

22. Fall or Spring? Spring.

23. Hugs or kisses? Depends who it is. . . and if I'm horny.

24. Cherry or Blueberry? Cherry.

25. Do you want your friends to email you back? Indifferent.

26. Who is most likely to respond? Some dude named "Herbal Viagra."

27. Who is least likely to respond? My many entreaties to Julia Stiles continue to be unanswered.

28. Living arrangements? House.

29. When was the last time you really cried? Probably my grandfather's funeral, although I did choke up a bit during the movie "Million Dollar Baby."

30. What is on the floor of your closet? A lot of dirty laundry.

31. Who is the friend you have had the longest? Wow, that's kind of a tie between a lot of people, most of them from childhood.

32. What did you do last night? Took an unexpected nap. Watched "Roadhouse." Ate leftover Hunan Chicken.

34. What inspires you? Apparently, Steve Gigl's blog posts.

35. What are you afraid of? Working too long in a job I don't like.

36. Plain, cheese or spicy hamburgers? Spicy, although I've never actually had a TRULY spicy hamburger.

37. Favorite car? Whatever's paid for.

38. Favorite dog breed? Cocker Spaniel.

39. Number of keys on your key ring? 7

40. How many years at your current job? Going on four.

41. Favorite day of the week? Saturday.

42. How many states have you lived in? One.

43. How many cities have you lived in? Four. Harmony (hardly a city, really, but whatever), Tokyo, Winona, Rochester.

Geez, you'd think they'd give an M.E. an office with a window. I mean, I'm just a lowly regular editor, and I have a massive window that looks out onto a bunch of pine trees.

Those cheap bastards at IBM.

Clapper, thou taunts me. :-)

15. Pets? Two annoying cats that would be better off as landfill.

Finally! Some cat-blogging I can enjoy.

Wait, did you just call me an inspiring dick?

Time to add a quotes section to my "about" page...

Ryan, if it makes you feel any better, I've turned my desk away from my windows so that I can't just sit and gaze out at the scantily clad supermodels that parade around Santa Cruz all day.

I like this list of questions. Perhaps I shall lift it for my own nefarious purposes.

Re: #38. Cocker spaniels? Really? I would thought you were a Lab guy really. Or maybe a Terrier guy.

BTW, thanks for the comments on the Libby post. I do appreciate your taking the time and explaining yourself.

Labs are pretty dogs, and loyal, but they all have that weird smell about them, and the lick a lot, and getting licked by a lab is like taking a bath in dog spit.

I have to know how you decided you would be a mauve crayon. No really, mauve? I thought you would go for periwinkle or peach before mauve.
