Seattlepolychick wants me to answer some questions, but in the words of my boy “I don’t wanna.” Okay that is far from the truth, I like getting questions especially if I can answer them, they are in multiple choice, about something I know about, and there is an incentive. So I will answer these even though she offered to drink coffee with me…ick…no coffee here.
The answer depends upon who in my family you talk to, how much they have had to drink or smoke, and whether you can read my birth certificate. I have been told Ann Arbor and I have been told some place higher up in the thumb. I will go with Michigan. If you believe the few people who have screamed at me that I am the anti-Christ then somewhere in Hell, which also happens to be in Michigan.
WERE YOU NAMED AFTER SOMEONE?
Again, this depends upon who in my family you talk to, how much they have had to drink or smoke, and whether you care. My father often says Nathan Hale. Which often made me think of Alan Hale who played the Skipper on Gilligan’s Island a much maligned show. In my view I was named after nobody other than the happy coincidence that strikes all parents trying to decide what to name their spawn.
IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN, HOW MANY DO YOU HAVE?
Two, but many of you know that. For those who like reading stories about them I highly suggest you head over to Speaking Out on Life where there are many stories about them.
HOW MANY PETS DO YOU HAVE?
None that I can speak publically about.
Inflicted upon me: Food Poisoning by Jimmy John’s.
Self-Inflicted: Permanently sprained ankle due to Shaun White Snowboarding on the Wii, but I beat that fucking game! Can you say that?
Nothing more than the average person with delusions of grandeur. I am an Agent of Change.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING TO BAKE?
I cannot bake. I have tried to bake several times. There are no success stories there are only funny stories, such as the pre-made cookies that come in a tube that ended up as thin as sheet of paper and burned. Barb reminded me of this: I couldn’t even make a no-bake pie.
FAVORITE FAST FOOD?
I don’t like fast food as currently defined, upsets my stomach and I feel spiritually corrupted. If I can go to a sit down diner and get a gyro or French dip sandwich that is my version of fast food. Oh, I forgot biscuits and gravy. Big sucker for those.
WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
Yes, as long as there was a huge pile of Ferris fucktards at the bottom to soften my landing should the rubber band break.
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
How many times and where I have to hit them to incapacitate them in case of trouble. No lie.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Over five years ago. Before that close to decade.
ANY CURRENT WORRIES?
Will I get financial aid to finish this “wondrous” experiment called getting a degree. Will I get fed up having to fight each and every semester with the school and just walk away.
NAME 3 DRINKS THAT YOU DRINK REGULARLY?
Coke, water, and milk.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BOOK?
Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential, because if someone with his background can get up and make something of themselves so can I. A close second, Fight Club because sometimes I want to take a break and let someone else drive me for a while.
Nope. Too much work for too little loot and I like to shower regularly.
Lilacs reminds me of the scent of a woman. The scent of a woman. Lemon. Lime. Cooking food.
WHY DO YOU BLOG?
I started out blogging because I needed a place to write that was more than the weekly ramblings that I used to send out. I write in general because I love to write. When I write with a message it is because I believe in what I am saying. I have learned that people do like what I write and that makes me feel good about me and my writing. I have learned that I have something to offer to other people through my writing, what I have learned over the past 42 years and I like to help where I can.
Start with First Impresson by Ice-T from Original Gangster. Then Personal Jesus by Marilyn Manson off of Lest We Forget. Then Lunchbox also by Marilyn Manson. Then Sanctified by NIN off of Pretty Hate Machine. Then March of the Pigs also by NIN off of The Downward Spiral. Then Ich Bin Ein Auslander by Pop Will Eat Itself off of Dos Dedos Mis Amiegos. Then to calm things down Cities in Dust by Everlove. Followed by Reptile by NIN. Then Hurt also by NIN. Then Tainted Love by Marilyn Manson. Nearing the end now…Closer by NIN and because I like to make people go “WHAT the FUCK?!” even in death end with Poker Face by Lady Gaga. You may now enjoy my demise.

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
You tell me?
WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A FRIEND?
Honesty. Makes me laugh. Makes me think. A good companion. Someone that other people can go to about me.
NAME SOMETHING YOU’VE DONE THAT YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU’D DO?
Stay at Ferris for more than that first semester.
FAVORITE FUN THINGS TO DO?
Play games with my kids. Play with Barb. Play with myself…wait…nah I will stick with that. Think. Paint. Write, write, and write some more. Cook. Assist people.
ANY PET PEEVES?
In which order would you like them? I would suggest you read my blog and you will quickly get an idea of what pisses me off more than I piss myself off.
WHAT’S THE LAST THING THAT MADE YOU LAUGH?
Barb: “Vampires killed the goat?” while playing Skyrim and walking into Falkreach where a dragon and vampires had attacked.
Now with some glee I will choose some people that I want to see how they answer these questions. Thank you Seattlepolychick for picking me to answer these questions, seems I wanted to after all. If anyone wants to know more, just ask, I have Research Monkey on hand ready and waiting.
