A Quirky Survey …

Posted: January 24, 2010 in Uncategorized

I normally don’t like surveys, etc., but this one I kind of enjoyed. I answered these in October of 2006 and have updated it a wee bit today.

October 2006

Here’s an odd survey for those who complain about the same ‘ol…

So far who did you talk to the most today?
ARRG… no talking… just woke up… leave me alone!

What is the best name for a butler?
Eggburt or Herbert

What is the thing you are picked on most about?
The piles of stuff around… hey I know where stuff is most of the time.  It’s “creative” clutter … yeah that’s it. 🙂

What was your last weird encounter?
Most of my encounters are weird because I am. It’s the encounters with really “normal” people that are strange to me. I’ve got a million stories of weird encounters. They’ll have to wait.

What’s the weirdest story of one of your scars?
I have an L shaped on my arm next to my elbow because I was riding my bike with no hands as a kid and ran into the back of a parked car… my mom wouldn’t let me in because she didn’t want me “bleeding all over the house.”

Do you remember the part from Bambi when Bambi learns to say bear?
Bambi… all I can remember about that movie was my friends 3 year old watching it and running in to his mom yelling “deer fall down… deer fall down!” I don’t like that movie.  I have an aversion to Disney after working on a bunch of their educational materials years ago.

What color is your toothbrush? Blue and white

What is your middle name spelled backwards?  Souicodilaepxecitsiltgarfalacrepus

Can you eat well with chopsticks?
I’m WAY too uncoordinated. I can barely eat with silverware.

What odd things creep you out?

Clowns… and decorated urinals at women’s events.

Have you ever felt an earthquake? You bet… rock and roll!

What do you do with the hot grease when you’re done cooking bacon?
I use it so infrequently that I buy microwave bacon. it’s all contained in a cooking bag and just goes in the trash.

How many good friends do you have? About 20
But I do know half of the people in the known universe

What’s the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
I like a wide variety of foods and have eaten some pretty weird combos, but I can’t think of anything particularly weird since I’ve been an adult. Probably little octopi and squid.

What color are your socks today?
Socks Schmocks… shoes schmooze.

What is your favorite word that starts with the letter G? Gibson (as in guitars)

Who do you blame for your mood today?
The sleep fairy who forgot to sprinkle pixy dust on me so I could go to sleep before 4 this morning. And my dog with cancer that has to go out to go to the bathroom every few hours.

If Ricky Martin had a trademark what would it be?
No one with a song as bad as She bangs even exists in my musical universe. La la la la I’m not listening … I’m not listening.

What is something scientists need to invent?
The perfect PMS food that would include chocolate, peanut butter, something salty and red meat.

What is the closest object to your left foot?
A giant begging drooling dog.

Who is your favorite Golden Girl?
Betty White… not for that show though but for her role in the horror/comedy flick “Lake Placid” where she was feeding cows to the killer crocodile.

Do you have an inside joke that has to do with numbers?
Nah not numbers… now if it involved poultry… that would be another story.

What is the longest amount of hours you have slept in a row?
About 22 when I was suffering from extreme exhaustion working on a media project when I was in my 20s. The family that let me come stay with them and sleep might well have saved my life.

What story do you tell most often?
Who cares about often? My favorite story to tell was about playing at a women’s event with way over the top decorations and a severe case of being clueless about what was really important.

How do Ugly people make you feel?
Physical ugliness doesn’t bother me at all. Emotional ugliness which I would equate with being abusive I won’t tolerate.

Where was your father’s hometown? A wee little place in Kentucky

What are the posters on your walls?
I just got to Shawn Colvin posters to put up but most of the stuff on my walls is art or signs… including some Fender signs and one that says Noise or music audible more than 50 feet prohibited. I also have a weird ugly painting of a woman playing guitar, a cool pen and ink one of my amazing Jewish artist friends did of God creating man, and a bunch of Ken and my photos on the wall.

Slime Thyme

We could sure hope so. It’s been a hell of a last ten years… it’s got to get better soon.

Who is the 1st person on your incoming call list and how do you feel about them?

Play my guitar, read, write something, pray, take pictures, stare blankly or at the ocean, go for a drive with good music playing. I’m much more comfortable alone than with people.

Who are your 2 favorite characters on Full House?
What a horrible horrible show!

Comfy running shoes, just like always.
