Another Sunday Stealing – on a Sunday even

Who were you with yesterday?

That would be Keyron. 

What woke you up this morning?

Nothing – I just pop awake at 5AM every day. This is what happens when you commute.

Where are you?

In my home office at home.

Is tomorrow going to be a good day?

Yep – I got the day off for Columbus Day.
What’s on your mind RIGHT NOW?

That I don’t have to go to work tomorrow. If old Columbus is good for anything it’s the time off.
Do you listen to music every day?

Yes in fact I do. It’s a survival tactic on public transit. In fact were it not so I’d be one unhappy camper.

Are you a fast typer?

Very fast. Everywhere I’ve worked someone has said to me that I fly on the keyboard. And I do, last time I checked I was up at about 90WPM.

Whats your favorite type of soda?

Black Cherry!

Have you ever won an award?

Not that I’m aware of but I did win a book once.

Are you listening to music right now?

Yep, got Pandora streaming in the background.

How long ’till your birthday?

42 days. Hey, that’s the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything.

Do you use ebay to buy or sell?

Not so much anymore. I was both buying and selling on there.

 Who makes you mad?

Stupid people.

 What do you do when you’re mad?

I curse a lot – and I get pretty loud.

Do certain songs make you cry?


 Are you usually a happy person?

Yes I am.
 What makes you the happiest?

Time away from work.
 Do you believe in yourself?

Of course I do.

Sunday Stealing Again!

Yet another one from Rejected Reality who stole it from elsehwere. Haven’t done one in a while:

  1. What was your first alcoholic drink? – My grandfather used to slip me sips of Narragansett Beer. Which probably explains my love of brown ales now.
  2. What was your first job? – A clerk at NHD – a hardware store.
  3. What was your first car? – 1976 Pontiac Trans-Am with a 455 and a four speed. Only difference between the one pictured and the one I had was mine had the T-Top on it.

    1976 Pontiac Trans Am
  4. What was your first mobile phone? –A Motorola DynaTac. 
  5. What is your first proper memory? – I recall nursery school at Bell Street School. It was a Unitarian Universalist church.
  6. Who was your first teacher? – Sister Mary Florentia.
  7. Which fictional character do you wish was real? – Thor!
  8. Where did you go on your first ride on an airplane? – Where else, into Orlando for a visit to Disney.
  9. Who was your first best friend? – a boy named Ben who lived across the street.
  10. What was your first detention for? – Never recall having had detention.
  11. What’s your strongest sense? – my Bullshit detector. (I left this one unchanged because I have a Class A bullshit detector.)
  12. Who was your first kiss? – Way, way back – what was her name. I can’t recall.
  13. What was the first film you remember seeing at the cinema? – Star Wars – the original.
  14. What’s the largest amount of money you’ve ever won? – $350 and that was in the 1980’s when the NE Patriots vs. the Bears game was on. I correctly predicted the spread.
  15. What’s the largest amount of money you’ve spent in one spree? – $1,200 – on a new laptop. And I’m looking to spend about the same for a new System76 laptop.
  16. If you had a warning label, what would yours say? – WARNING: Does not tolerate bigotry.
  17. Have you ever got sweet revenge on anyone? – I really haven’t had to do so. Karma if it is true has been more than enough. 
  18. Have you ever been to a live concert? – Oh yes – I’ve seen Earth Wind & Fire, P-Funk, and that’s about it.
  19. Have you ever been to see stand up comedy? – Got to see Sam Kinison way back when. He was a crazy son of a bitch, a shame that he’s gone. 
  20. Have you ever needed stitches? – Shall we start the count. The first round was 12 stitches spread across both arms from being bitten by a St. Bernard. Yeah, I know. Then there were the 14 stitches in my head from a car accident. Then the 4 stitches when I sliced my left index finger open trying to repair a connector. Then of course there are the stitches for when I had my wisdom teeth out.

Sunday Stealing

Oh this should be fun, and as usual this was stolen from Rejected Reality who stole it from someone else:

  1. Be honest, who texted you last?
    * My phone is in the other room charging right now but my last text was from Keyron.
  2. Do you sleep with the bedroom door open or closed?
    * Door is closed lest the cat annoy the hell out of me when I’m trying to sleep. Other cats were fine, slept with me. This cat, she wants to be ALL OVER the bed. So as a result she’s not allowed in the bedroom.
  3. Do you drink tea?
    * I tend to like the darker brews though Keyron is getting me to drink more green tea. I kind of look at green tea as unfinished tea.
  4. Do you have plans for tomorrow?
    * Lunch with a head hunter. This should be fun.  Now this is the difference between a headhunter based here in RI and one based in MA. The ones around Boston are business pros all the way. And I appreciate that as another business professional myself.
  5. What’s worse: dry skin or chapped lips?
    * Chapped Lips… puts a crimp in kissing and fellatio.
  6. Would you be surprised if Facebook started charging?
    * Well, they already want to charge you to promote a post so I’d say we’re not far from the day when they will start a monthly subscription charge. At which point you’ll see Facebook hit the dustbin of the Internet and Google+ take over.
  7. Would you rather go to Canada or California on vacation?
    * No real draw to California to be honest. I have been told Toronto is cool, so to Montreal. And I’ve been to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.
  8. How many social media sites are you registered with?
    * See the sidebar –> Just flickr at the moment. However I have a Facebook, Google+, and I used to have a MySpace account. Plus I’m active on IRC when I remember to launch mIRC and logon to freenode. 
  9. Are you wearing jeans, shorts, sweatpants or pajama pants?
    * A pair of jeans, socks, and a long sleave light shirt.
  10. So, what if you changed lives for one day with the last person you texted?
    * I’d get to grow my hair out in an afro! How cool would that be!
  11. Last person you told a secret to?
    * Nobody – don’t really have any secrets.
  12. What are you listening to at the moment?
    * Raphael Saadiq – Oh Girl
  13. Where was the last place you fell asleep other than your bed?
    * On the recliner of course. This sucker goes nearly horizontal so I’ve been caught snoozing, laptop in my lap, cat curled up behind the laptop and both of us snoring away!
  14. Is there someone that you believe you will always be attached to?
    * Yes
  15. Are you going to any concerts this year?
    * Not that I’ve planned.
  16. Do you believe in Karma?
    * Sort of as there have been a number of people that wronged me that ended up in a very bad place after doing so, so yeah. In fact my last curse upon my father is coming through in spades. I told him I hope he dies a lonely old man. And he likely will as wife #3 just divorced his ass.
