I sense Quizzery afoot!

Time for a quiz-thing! Stolen from Cal in his Canadian Cave.

1. Never in my life have I been: to Mozambique.

2. The one person who can drive me nuts is: You. Geez, can't you give it a rest!

3. High school: wasn't really a train wreck for me. Sophomore year kind of blew, but I rebounded nicely.

4. When I’m nervous: I get all kinds of nervous energy.

5. The last song I listened to was: a track from James Horner's score to Avatar (which isn't a terribly good score, nor is it a terribly bad one -- it's just basic Horner, with some really nifty moments surrounded by a lot of workmanlike stuff).

6. If I were to get married right now my best man/maid of honor: would be asking, "Hey, what happened to the first wife?"

7. My hair is: long and graying.

8. When I was 5: I saw Star Wars.

9. Last Christmas: could've been better. Could've been worse, too.

10. I should be..: writing Star Wars.

11. When I look down I see: the bib of my overalls.

12. The happiest recent event was: getting a lot of praise for a job I did really well at The Store.

13. If I were a character on 'Friend' I would be: one of the extras in Central Perk, wondering why I can never get to sit on that really comfy looking couch.

14. By this time next year: I'd like to be even better at my job than I am now.

15. My current gripe is: Teabaggers who are oh so worried about budget deficits and civil liberties now that a black guy is President, but said not a word while the previous guy was violating both at a record pace.

16. I have a hard time understanding: why so many people loathe the Star Wars prequels.

17. There’s this girl I know that: owns the ugliest Christmas sweater in history. The thing has lights on it.

18. If I won an award, the first person I would tell would be: The Wife. Followed by you. How's that for service!

19. Take my advice: Measure twice and cut once (but don't measure if you don't have to).

20. The thing I want to buy: a house.

21. If you visited the place I was born: You'd see other babies getting born too. It was a hospital that's still there. (Well, I assume the exact location of the maternity ward has changed since 1971.)

22. I plan to visit: Pittsburgh, this coming weekend!

23. If you spent the night at my house: you'd be grossed out by the cats licking each other's arses.

24. I’d stop my wedding if: George Lucas walked in and offered me the position of screenwriter for Star Wars Episode VII.

25. The world could do without: libertarians.

26. I’d rather lick the belly of a cockroach than: lick the backside of a cockroach.

27. Most recent thing I’ve bought myself: A few books at the library book sale, I think. (Believe it or not, the last couple of times I've been in Borders I didn't buy anything!)

28. Most recent thing someone else bought me: some candy bars from Vidler's, which I threw in The Wife's basket.

29. My favorite blonde is: The Wife. (Ha! Good safe answer! Huzzah!)

30. My favorite brunette is: Stana Katic

31. My favorite red head is: Christina Hendricks

32. My middle name is: C. Just an initial. Just like Harry S Truman.

33. In the morning I: get up too early for work.

34. The animals I would like to see flying besides birds are: giant squid.

35. Once, at a bar: I ate a whole bunch of chicken wings. (OK, I did this more than once. A lot more than once.)

36. Last night I was: reading, eating dinner, watching Tomorrow Never Dies with the family.

37. There’s this guy I know who: must be destroyed. Oh, yes.

38. If I was an animal I’d be: a horse in Middle Earth.

39. A better name for me would be: Lord Ponneril the Elder. (I just made that up.)

40. Tomorrow I am: working, reading, blogging, and scheming.

41. Tonight I am: making dinner, watching The Amazing Race and The Celebrity Apprentice.

42. My birthday is: September 26, just like George Gershwin. I got rhythm!

Please tell me it's not true. Please tell me that you do not wish to see a flying squid? That is the last thing I need is to fight them in the air. Of course we would develop a way for them to eat food with chemicals in it so that they exploded when they reached a certain alititude but do you not see that would only add to all the other things we have to do to keep the world safe from the Cephalopod Menance. I see you wish to be part of the problem. I would hate to out you as a collaborator. You have many qualities we need in the struggle. Damn boy. You let me down on this one with a meme stole from my own sight. The cat is currently inconsolable but don't worry I will talk him down from the lemon tree...eventually. Sigh.

I noticed you listed buying a house as something you want to do. I found this organization VERY helpful maybe you will too

J - when we come to get you it will help if you think you are going to the SPA - Re-education Camp is a term I don't like to use. That is UNLESS you WANT to become the THRALL of their Queen,Sarah Palin.
