100 Questions Meme

Posted by Mike on November 13, 2006

Just because: 

1. ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT?
Right thumb, got it playing somewhere as a child and got cut by something. All I remember is playing and then blood and then mommy.

2. WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM?
Depends on the room, but assuming it means bedroom, I have very little up except a hermetic rosy cross and lots of bookshelves. A work in progress.

3. WHAT DOES YOUR CELL PHONE LOOK LIKE?
Motorola razor, silver. My current wallpaper is a picture of a lightbulb, just because.

4. WHAT MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO?
Probably jazz (hard bop, spiritual jazz, soul jazz, funk and fusion best) and late 60s/early 70s classic rock the most, but I like a little of everything.

5. DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME YOU WERE BORN?
Very early morning. I forget time because I’m not sure if it’s GMT or otherwise. Whenever (and wherever) Cancer was rising the morning of September 17th, 1970.

6. WHAT DO YOU WANT MORE THAN ANYTHING RIGHT NOW?
Sleep. Until I get home, then I probably want to read. If I was a bear I’d say hibernate.

7. WHO DO YOU MISS?
Noone really, except occasionally my nephews. I’m generally OK where I am at any given moment.

10. WHAT’S YOUR MIDDLE NAME?
Kenneth.

11. THE BEST TV SHOW EVER CREATED:
Can’t think of one in particular, but I’m awfully fond of the new Battlestar Galactica, Deadwood, and The Shield currently. Maybe South Park. My inner 8 year old says Doctor Who. My inner 21 year old says Buffy.

Brian

13. DO YOU GET SCARED IN THE DARK?
No. I grew up fundamentalist and then grew out of it. Ain’t nothing scarier than that.

I’m not totally sure, it’s not usually people who would do so, more than likely it’s a situation.

COLOGNE / PERFUME?
Most commercial colognes and perfumes totally disgust me. I used to do labwork at UCDavis and I smelled stuff up there I’d rather wear before most garbage like Drakkar Noir. I prefer to keep it organic when I use my own, something with amber or sandalwood.

Less so as I get older, it’s terribly abused in the internet age and usually telegraphs the message “I’m petty.” Then again, I’ve got a friend with whom we’ve made a fine art out of sarcasm, but we might as well be speaking another language.

64. DO YOU KNOW ANYONE FAMOUS?

    A doctor once told me that there is no such thing as ‘double-jointed’ and anyone who is, poor thing, is deformed. Flexible joints is the correct term.
