Another Midweek Meme

Courtesy, once again, of Mrs. Chili (who “borrowed” it 🙂 from NurseExec):

1. The phone rings; who don’t you want it to be?
Work. Little Man’s daycare. A bill collector (though they’ve largely gone away as Cookiemaker and I have pretty much finally caught up with things). A telemarketer.

2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart?

3. In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener?
In a group of strangers, a listener. Amongst friends, I probably talk too much, especially if I’ve had a little too much “liquid courage.”

4. What was the last compliment that someone gave you?
I was complimented on my hair by a customer the other day. Considering that it’s rapidly going gray and there’s an ever-growing bald spot back there, that made me feel pretty good.

5. Do you play the lottery?
When I think of it, I’ll pick up a Powerball ticket.

6. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, who would you want with you?

Somebody with considerably more wilderness survival skills than me. A Green Beret? A park ranger? Hell, how about a freaking cub scout?

7. Do you like to ride horses?
I’ve actually never ridden a horse, and the last time I came into physical contact with one (about twenty years ago), I had an allergic reaction (runny nose, itchy eyes, that sort of thing).

8. Did you ever go to camp as a kid?

Yes, here.

9. What is your favorite party game?
I haven’t played a party game in a long time. Trivial Pursuit?

10. If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew he/she was married, would you go for it?
I did that a couple of times back when I was young, dumb, and full of cum. Each time it was great while it lasted, but never ened well, so I certainly wouldn’t recommend it.

Between those lessons learned and the fact that I’m married now, I definitely wouldn’t do it today.

11. When was the last time that you lied?
I know I do it (the “little white” kind), but I can’t remember a specific incident.

12. Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you?
Seeing as I have no real religious beliefs of my own, yes (all right, I might have an issue with devil worship, but other than that…). All I ask is that you don’t try to jam your beliefs down my throat.

13. If you have a S/O, who pursued who? If not, do you like to pursue or be pursued?
I pursued Cookiemaker. Being pursued is certainly a compliment, though.

14. Use six words to describe yourself.
Smart, funny, articulate, geeky, lazy, insecure.

15. Name a song that could make you cry.
There’s a number of them, from a variety of genres, for a number of reasons. Try this, this, and this.

16. Are you pleased with your education?
I wish I was doing more with it, but yes.

17. How do you feel about gun control?
The Second Amendment clearly gives the people of the United States of America the right to keep and bear arms. That being said, I have no problem with the government taking a reasonable amount of time to make sure that a) I am mentally and emotionally stable enough to own a gun and b) I do not have a record of committing violent crimes.

18. If your house was on fire, what thing would be the first thing you grabbed?
Little Man. Then Cookiemaker. Then the cats. Any inanimate object is not worth risking my life for.

19. How often do you have a romantic weekend?
Hardly ever. I’m married with a child. My wife and I both work. As much as I’d like to break that stereotype, what did you expect?

20. Do you think more about the past, present or future?
The present gives me enough to worry about, thank you very much.

21. What was the last adult magazine that you have read?
Believe it or not, it’s been quite some time since I’ve picked up a porno mag (I’m assuming that’s what we mean by “adult”).

Thank god for the internet! 🙂

I might have to go back, oh, 12 – 15 years ago when my roommate got me a subscription to this mag as a “joke” birthday gift.

22. What are you told about your eyes?
Actually, not much. They’re brown, for what it’s worth.

23. How tall is just right?
I never really thought about it.

24. Where is your dream house located?
In the woods, on the shore of a lake, far enough from my neighbors so that I cannot see them or hear them.

25. Do you have a secret fetish?
Nope. I really haven’t held back about my fetishes here. 🙂

26. Have you tried bourbon? If yes, what type?
I don’t specifically recall, but I’m sure I’ve had some Jim Beam or Wild Turkey in my day.

27. Have you ever seen a male or female stripper?
Male strippers, once. Female strippers, more times than I can conveniently count.

28. When was the last time you were at TGI Fridays?
It’s been a while, but I have frequented quite a few TGIFs in my time.

29. When was the last time you were at church?
Um, let’s see… Cookimaker and I were married in a Catholic church (for the sake of our families) coming up on nine years ago. I honestly don’t think I’ve been in one since.

30. Where was the furthest place you traveled today?
To Little Man’s daycare.

31. What was your favorite job?
Once upon a time I was a DJ in a strip club. ‘Nuff said.

32. What condiments do you like at your BBQ?
Actually, I don’t like condiments in general. I prefer my hot dogs plain. I prefer my burgers with cheese and bacon (my ideal burger also has a fried egg on it). That’s it.

33. Bud is hosting Thursday Thunks this week. Will you play?
I have no idea who Bud is.

34. Do you look like your mom or dad?
I’m adopted, so I have no idea.

35. Who was the last person that you showered with (it’s okay to leave out the name)?

Cookiemaker – and I’ll let you run with your imagination with that one. 🙂



  1. That you eat hot dogs and hamburgers plain is just weird to me. I love you anyway, of course, but it’s just weird…

  2. […] one of these posts fairly recently, but I really thought this was a good one when I spotted it at Falcon’s Eyrie.  (I see from a related post that I did one containing several of these questions earlier, but […]
