Accursed lists!

Stephanie saddled me with this one...and, I simply CANNOT get any rest until I've completed it. I am, it appears, a hopeless slave to these lists. I should be doing something more constructive...

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?
"You RULE, baby!"

2. How much cash do you have on you?
Zero. I'm sitting at my desk...why would I need cash? Porn sites only take credit cards...

3. What’s a word that rhymes with “DOOR?”

4. Favorite planet?
Uh...Earth. What else?

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
I can receive calls on my cell phone?!?

6. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone?
There's a ring tone on my cell phone?!?

7. What shirt are you wearing?
A lovely flannel shirt, untucked with sleeves rolled up, over a comfy Eddie Bauer tee.

8. Do you “label” yourself?
OH yeah! I take a certain snide pleasure in the dichotomy of my self-labeling, though:
Metalhead and professional composer...
Famously lecherous and faithful spouse...
Fiscal conservative and social liberal...
the list goes on...

9. Name the brand of your shoes you’re currently wearing?
Before I took them off, they were black Dr. Marten's.

10. Bright or Dark Room?
Darkish, but cozy.

11. What do you think about the person who took this survey before you?
Great writer, fabulous babe, deep thinker...and insidious corrupter.

12. What does your watch look like?
Gold Bulova with a black face...very "old skool" and classy. Like me!

13. What were you doing at midnight last night?

14. What did your last text message you received on your cell say?
I can get text messages on my cell phone?!?

15. Where is your nearest 7-11?
Um...I guess the corner of Harrison and Lake Lansing Rd. in East Lansing.

16. What’s a word that you say a lot?

17. Who told you he/she loved you last?
Tess. (Awwww!)

18. Last furry thing you touched?
Tess. (Ewwww!)

19. How many drugs have you done in the last three days?
As I'm now reading "The Dirt," I am convinced that there are no drugs left...Motley Crue already did 'em all.

20. How many rolls of film do you need developed?
Film?? Hmmm...there may be a partial roll in my film camera...wherever that is.

21. Favorite age you have been so far?
The age I am tomorrow.

22. Your worst enemy?
Myself, the Great Procrastinator!

23. What is your current desktop picture?
Blue bubbles & swirls...standard Mac fare.

24. What was the last thing you said to someone?
"Hungry?" (Ramona's typical pre-chow question.)

25. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly what would it be?
The money, baby. Then, I'd fly first-class wherever I wanted to go.

26. Do you like someone?
Sure...lots of people. Tess especially. She's my "special friend." (Nudge-nudge, wink-wink.)

27. The last song you listened to?
"Rock & Roll Ain't Noise Pollution"...track 10 of AC/DC's sonic masterpiece "Back In Black."

28. What time of day were you born?
Something like 10 in the morning.

29. What’s your favorite number?
Thirteen. I swear by it. (Happens to be my birthday.)

30. Where did you live in 1987?
125 Barnes Hall, Central Michigan. In a room covered in Kiss posters. Somehow, this did not prevent me from getting laid.

31. Are you jealous of anyone?
Not especially...sometimes I'm jealous of people who achieve career goals that I would like to. They probably spend less time with dumb fucking blog lists.

32. Is anyone jealous of you?
Oh, there would HAVE to be, don't you think???

33. Where were you when 9/11 happened?
Teaching my ear-training class. I came out of the room and the marching band director told me "The towers are down." My first imagining of this was that they toppled like, in a way, the horror wasn't nearly as bad as I first thought.

34. What do you do when vending machines steal your money?
Kick & shake them a lot.

35. Do you consider yourself kind?
Yes. Kind of facetious, most days. But, I try not to kill bugs, if that counts.

36. If you had to get a tattoo, where would it be?
I'm just coming into my "need a tattoo" phase. All things being equal (money, pain level, response of friends & relatives), I'd probably have something across my upper back. Big & colorful.

37. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be?

38. Would you move for the person you loved?
Absolutely. I'd move heaven & earth for the person I love.

39. Are you touchy feely?
Yeah. When my cousin had cancer, his dad told me that he learned it's really important to hug the people you love.

40. What’s your life motto?
"Get busy livin'...or get busy dyin'."

41. Name three things that you have on you at all times?
1) My wedding band (given to me by Tess). 2) A plain sterling chain (given to me by Tess). 3) Mojo (given to me by the gods of fortune...see what good company Tess shares??).

42. What’s your favorite town/city?
To visit, Washington D.C. To live...somewhere small, where the kids play outside.

43. What was the last thing you paid for with cash?
Shipping charges for my best friend's birthday present. (A lovely tome entitled "The Alphabet of Manliness"...feminists, stay away!)

44. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper and mailed it?
Does a card count? I mailed my grandparents an anniversary card a couple weeks ago.

45. Can you change the oil on a car?
Probably, since I can change it in my mower. Turn it upside down and let it run into the hard can it be?

46. Your first love: what is the last thing you heard about him/her?
That she got married.

47. How far back do you know about your ancestry?
On my mother's father's side I'm traced back to the Orkney Islands, mid-17th century. My dad's side is Dutch, same time period. (Someone on each side was fanatic about geneaology.)

48. The last time you dressed fancy, what did you wear and why did you dress fancy?
Tess and I went to the ballet in late September...I try to look nice when I go out with her, since she normally sees me slouching around in stinky fat-pants and untucked flannel shirts.

49. Does anything hurt on your body right now?
My jaw aches a little...probably night grinding and stress.

50. Have you been burned by love?
Shamefully, yes. She was a gorgeous 19-year old bimbo who I just couldn't get enough of. Really, I was quite pathetic. (Cue Pat Benatar's "Promises in the Dark"...)

Okay, that's my list. Hmmm...who else needs to waste some time? I'd be interested to see what Mike and Mac have to say to these questions...
