Answering a Bunch of Odd Questions About My Favorite Subject

Not posting what's on my mind today
I've had a couple of long blog posts the last couple of days and I'm sorely tempted to blog about a steaming pile of crap I'm dealing with right now, but I'd rather blog later about how everything was resolved and I can get back on with my regularly scheduled life.

Something that really helps is the fact that Dave from Blogography posted a big-ol' list of questions all survey-like.  I'm a sucker for survey questions, so even though a challenge wasn't thrown down, it has been accepted.
  • What eye color do you find sexiest? Green
  • White, milk, or dark chocolate mocha? There is one than more type of mocha?  whatever is cheapest I guess.
  • If you could get a Sharpie tattoo on your back, what would it be? Your mom....seriously, a sharpie tattoo?
  • Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it? Both, and both were cool in there own way.
  • Your favorite adult as a child? (and not your parents, if they were your favorite) Whoever was my current role model.
  • What kind of smoothie sounds really good right now? Taro with boba
  • Most embarrassing moment from your elementary school years? The first day of 4th grade when the teacher pulled me out of class, right off the bat, and told me she wasn't going to put up with my shit like my third grade teacher did.  To this day I honestly have no clue what she was talking about.
  • Most embarrassing moment from your middle school years? The one time I actually fast-danced at a dance.
  • Most embarrassing moment from your high school years? The day I stripped in class.
  • Pirates or ninjas? Why? Ninjas, because we still have pirates and they aren't that impressive.
  • Have you ever climbed a tree more than twenty feet off the ground? Yes.
  • Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing set? I liked swinging up high and jumping off.  Swinging was a means to an end.  No big deal anymore.
  • If you could have any pet in the world, illegal or not, what would you get? Sharks, but only if they had friggen lasers.  Oh...seriously?  I would love to have a big indoor koi pond.
  • What's your most favorite part of your body? My epidermis 'cause if feels everything.

  • Have you ever watched any major sporting event drunk? I'm sure I have, but cannot recall off the top of my head.
  • What's the most delicious food you've ever eaten in your life? A bowl of tomato soup following the Nijmegen Vierdaagse when I was craving it for some reason.  It was a nowhere pub/restaurant and I ate two or three large bowls.

  • What was your favorite cartoon growing up? Woody Woodpecker
  • If you had to have a cow or a pig, which would you take? Why? I've had both and would take either over a sheep.  If I had to pick it would be a cow because I couldn't get sick from it so easily.
  • If you had to look at one city skyline for the rest of your life, which would it be? Boise
  • Longest plane ride you've ever been on? 4 hours (or so) Boise to Long Beach, CA because we had to declare an in-flight emergency and were expected to crash without landing gear.
  • The latest you've ever slept? About 30 hours later (sickness and drugs).
  • Would you buy a sweater covered in kitten pictures? Would you wear it if someone gave it you for free? No and hell no, unless drinking and a bet was involved, or I just thought it was funny at the moment.

  • A relationship with love or one with sex? I want both.
