Random Survey For The Bored

It looks like my blog is becoming nothing more than a collection of memes and other random stuffs. I’m not sure what I think about that. My brain seems to be mostly dry of things to blog about.

Anyway, I stole this from YvesPaul at Melodramatic Diary of a Cynic.

I think I shall expound upon some of these answers. Maybe that will make this thing seem more blog-worthy.

What is on your desktop wallpaper?
We’re talking computers, right? I wonder if anyone actually puts wallpaper on the top of their desk?

I have to say “nothing”. I find (most) wallpapers distracting. Unless it’s a dark, repeating pattern. Which is really odd since I have a slideshow of porn pictures running up in the right corner of my screen all the time.

I also keep my taskbar on the right side of my screen. That’s how I roll.

What is your favorite zoo animal?
Tigers. I want one. And I shall name him “Hobbes”. I used to like the monkeys, but apparently they were a bad role model for me at some point and I got in trouble. Something about flinging crap at other people….

What was your favorite toy as a child?
I remember Legos. I remember an “antique” metal Erector set. I remember Transformers. I think “favorite” depended on what toy commercial came on between my cartoons.

I have yet to put some of my “childhood” toys away.

What food do you eat too much of?
This would imply that I mentally validate that I think I eat too much of something. Which I don’t. I’ve never been a “food person”. But I do like hot dogs and pizza rolls. I used to like pizza a lot, but it always seems to burn the roof of my mouth.

What kind of hairstyle do you have?
I have no style when it comes to my hair. See! Go look, I’ll wait. It’s a cornucopia of foreheadiness. And to think I sleep with my stylist!

What was your favorite activity in gym class?
I HATED gym. Big surprise, eh? I was a runty little nerd, and was often used AS the dodgeball.

Most of the time I spent fantasizing about my coach. Even though I had no idea what sex really was or felt like, I had quite an active imagination. Which is kinda creepy now if you think about it.

What is on the shirt you are wearing right now?
Some fabric softener. Probably some aerated bits of who-knows-what that I wandered through today at the tattoo studio. Oh, and a monkey with a gum bubble coming out of his ass. (Gum. Perverts!)

What is the picture nearest to you of?
Define “picture”. I’m filling this meme out at my tattoo studio, so I’m surrounded by pictures. Your definition of picture might be different than mine.

What kind of salad dressing do you like?
That really depends on the type of salad I’m eating. Is it a tossed salad? 😉

Apparently I’m a pervert for saying that?

What’s your least favorite food?
Anything that smells like or contains Bell peppers. I blame my mother for this. She would force us to eat whatever was on our plate. And let’s just say she tended to leave ingredients out of meals without realizing it. This might also explain why I’m not a “food person”.

What do you do on a Sunday night?
Usually sitting at the house with the Husbear watching something that came in from Netflix. Or grocery shopping and counting the people who have a full head of teeth. Sunday night is our Saturday night.

If you could only use one condiment on your food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Would I have to put this condiment on all food, or just food of my choosing? If the latter, then I pretty much do this already: golden mustard.

What color are your sheets?
On the bed? A brownish/tan woven-looking sheet set. I’m sure the style has a name, but I could care less. The colors probably have a name too, but they all look the same when the lights are out.

How big is your computer display?
“Monitors are like penises: wide is far more important than tall.” That said, my primary PC at the tattoo studio has a LG 22″ LCD.

At home I am currently sharing the Husbear’s computer, which has a Hannspree 25″ LCD.

Can you tell I like ’em wide?

What pair of shoes do you wear most often?
Whatever Chuck Taylor All-Stars I have around at the time that are still “presentable”. I didn’t start wearing Chuck T’s until sometime after college. Weird. I need to just start buying white ones and “tattoo” them myself.

What is your favorite game?
I guess for me it would be hitting on straight guys thinking they are not. I have no gaydar. None. Zero. Zed. And I always lose at that game. Does that count as a game?

What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?
Turkey. Oven roasted. Salted. With dark gravy.

If my memory serves me correctly, I think the Husbear attempted to have only a ham for Thanksgiving once. That didn’t go over well.

What is your favorite pizza topping?
Pepperoni. Who doesn’t like a nice, thick pepperoni to be topped with? And then you get to the warm, gooey cheese. Um… what was I talking about?

What time do you plan on waking up tomorrow?
Since terminating my employment with the OGRE, I wake up whenever my body gets me up. However, the Husbear kisses me goodbye before he goes to work in the morning around 7:30 which as of late wakes me. My body must hate me.

What is your favorite day of the year?
I really don’t have a favorite day of the year. I’m nonchalant about days of the year.

Actually, I’m nonchalant about a lot of things.

Until next time...

Question of the Day… (this might be NSFW)

What do you do with your arms when you sleep?

I always have a hard time figuring out a way to get comfortable with my arms when I’m trying to go to sleep. Sometimes I lay on them when I sleep on my belly, sometimes they’re curled up like I’m impersonating a T-Rex, and sometimes they’re wedged under a pillow.

No position seems entirely conducive to falling asleep. One would think after 36 years of sleeping almost every night, I would have figured it out by now.

And while I’m on the subject, how do you fall asleep: on your back? side? stomach? sitting up?

Or possibly like this?

Update: I modified the title by adding the “(this might be NSFW)” to it. Apparently this one is a little “edgy”….]

Until next time...

My Halloween Costume…

Because some of you asked what I’m dressing up for this Halloween, I’m putting this post out there early. More than likely I won’t be dressing up for the actual day of Halloween.

This is what I went to the pre-Halloween Halloween Party down in Little Rock as this past weekend.

Dead Michael Jackson
Dead Michael Jackson

Timely and topical. And yes, I have no class.

And speaking of class… here’s the Husbear:


Get THAT out of your head.

Until next time...

The Halloween Meme

Stolen from The Electronic Replicant.

1. What is your favorite written work of horror fiction?
The Bible. Oh wait….

2. What is your favorite work of science fiction/fantasy?
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams

3. Who is your favorite monster?
God, as portrayed in the Bible. Think about it.

4. What is your favorite Horror movie?
I don’t do horror movies for the most part. They elicit nightmares. And I already have enough of those without needing the assist.

5. What horror movie gives you the most chills?
See previous answer. But usually it’s the ones with events could really happen.

6. What character from any horror film would you most like to play?
The Creature from the Black Lagoon. I have no idea why. It just seems like swimming around in a big rubbery suit would be amusing.

7. Freddy or Jason?
What? As a date? I guess Freddy because he had a sense of humor, albeit a dark one.

8. What is your favorite Halloween treat?
Candy Corn. I can eat it until I puke and then go back for more.

9. Ghosts or goblins?
I would say goblins, because they are “evil, crabby, and mischievous creatures”. And I like that.

10. Friendly-faced jack-o’-lantern or scary one?
More the scary friendly faced ones. Especially when they slowly rot on the front porch and turn into puddles of ooze.

11. What is your scariest encounter with the paranormal?
The Husbear’s mother.

12. Do you believe in ghosts? Why or why not?
I think there is stuff out there our feeble human minds can’t comprehend, or choose to not comprehend. So yes? But do animals have ghosts? And then what about aliens? And where do all these ghosts go? Or are they all really just pan-dimensional beings and we call ghosts?

13. Would you rather be a zombie, alien, or psycho?
Well as I’m already a psycho alien, I guess that leaves zombie?

14. Favorite Halloween costume?
On me? On someone else? On the floor? I’ll assume a costume I have worn before. Which I guess would have been me as a greasy tooth fairy from two years ago.

15. Best thing about Halloween?
It means there are 62 days until all the holidays are over for the season!!

16. Person in your family who most likes Halloween (not counting yourself)?
I would assume the Husbear, since we’re not counting myself.

17. Are you superstitious?
In some ways. More out of habit now than because of a belief. But aren’t they really the same?

18. Share an unusual Halloween story.
I have none. Maybe that’s unusual enough.

19. What did you do for Halloween as a kid?
I remember trick-or-treating in my grandmother’s neighborhood as a kid. That’s about it.

20. What’s the best Halloween party that you’ve attended?
I’ve only been to maybe three or four Halloween parties as an adult, and they were all fun because of the people at them. And the alcohol helped too.

Until next time...
