Well, it’s at least a post… right? I had a reschedule at the studio today, and I decided to look in my drafts folder and found this post I started. So I thought I may as well finish it.
Spo posted this on his blog a long time ago. Almost a year ago actually. And as I feel I have nothing going on mentally these days that I feel worth writing about, I’ll play along.
I don’t know if it’s a good thing or bad thing that it takes forever for me to fill one of these things out…
Four names I go by:
Most everyone calls me “Erik”;
the Husbear calls me “Baby Bear”;
… and I really don’t have any others (at least that people call me to my face of which I’m aware).
Four tunes I adore:
INXS’ “New Sensation“;
Blue Man Group’s “I Feel Love (feat. Venus Hum)“;
Gary Jules with Michael Andrews’s “Mad World“;
The B-52’s “Revolution Earth“.
Four things I hate:
my inherent awkwardness in most social situations;
Four places I have worked:
My father’s plant nursery in Florida;
Shoney’s Restaurant (as a waiter) in Searcy, Arkansas;
the Oppressive Great Retail Empire, aka Wal-Mart (both at store-level and the Home Office);
a gas station (third-shift fuel desk jockey).
Four things I love to watch:
Train wrecks, figuratively;
Porn, but I give it the “Mystery Science Theater 3000 treatment, so it’s more for comedy;
Cloudy and colorful sunsets;
Four places I have visited: (I’m adding “that have impressed me enough to want to go back”)
Oglala National Grassland, near Harrison, Nebraska. But only when it’s in bloom. The smell is incredible.;
Santa Rosa Island (near Pensacola Beach), Florida;
Glacier National Park;
the Vieux Carré.
Four things I love to eat:
Broccoli and Velveeta cheese;
Easy Cheese and Ritz crackers;
deep-dish Pepperoni pizza;
cheap, plain hot dogs with mustard.
Four favorite drinks:
Jager (as of late);
a good Bloody Mary.
“Battlestar Galactica” (the 2004 series);
“Into the Woods” (the original Broadway version, not the movie);
“Doctor Who” (1963 through current!);
“Chopped” (I don’t cook, but I enjoy watching this show).
Four things I am happily anticipating:
Our next Fourth of July week walkabout trip;
finishing the never-ending bathroom project this Spring;
driving Meowington (my Jeep) through mud puddles after a rain;
my next tatto, whenever that may be.
Four things I am dreading:
This election cycle (too late, I know);
“Idiocracy” actually coming true (too late again, I know);
Any dental appointment;
Getting an injection/shot.
Four items on my bucket list:
Learn to be comfortable in my own skin;
Learn to play the banjo or the cello;
Finish filling up my below-my-clothes skin space with permanent doodles.
Four people I think will respond:
I’m pretty certain everyone on the Internet has already done this…
Until next time...
