Random Thursday Questions

Thanks to Arsian kitters for posting this on her blog: some random ass questions. In the spirit of passing around a Web meme, I’ve reposted the questions here, along with my answers.

Explain what ended your last relationship?
Public story: long distance kills love. Private story: a cover-up on her behalf.

When was the last time you shaved?
Today, but only my throat — I’ve put on my winter coat:

What were you doing this morning at 8 a.m.?

What were you doing 15 minutes ago?
Fixing the water intake for the toilet in the guest bath. Fucking plumbing.

Are you any good at math?
I am probably above average at “business math,” particularly figuring percentages and discounts due to my retail past. I went from my sophomore year in high school through college without taking a math course, so I dodged all of that Calculus and beyond stuff.

Your prom night?
I don’t think I ever went to a prom. 🙂 Probably spent gaming with my friends and watching zombie movies.

Do you have any famous ancestors?
I am distantly related to Abraham Lincoln’s wife and more directly related to Daniel Boone.

Have you had to take a loan out for school?
Yes, albeit a small one (~$3500) which was repaid either before I graduated or the year after. I forget.

Do you know the words to the song on your myspace profile?
I don’t have a myspace profile.

Last thing received in the mail?
The last thing of importance I received was a Pelican 1060 hard case, which I will be reviewing immediately. This post is a stop-gap. 😉

How many different beverages have you had today?
Three: coffee, water, and decaf green spiced tea, in that order.

Do you ever leave messages on people’s answering machine?
Always. Don’t call me if you aren’t going to leave a message.

Who did you lose your CONCERT virginity to?
Janet Jackson’s Rythmn Nation tour.

Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach?

What was the most painful dental procedure you have had?
Any adjustment to my braces. Three days of pain after each tweak. I was unconscious during my wisdom teeth operation, so it was actually very painless.

What is out your back door?
Too many oak trees.

Any plans for Friday night?
Nope — probably pounding the keys like tonight.

Do you like what the ocean does to your hair?
That’s a weird fucking question. Are you trying to sell me something? More of that Dead Sea salt crap? Anyway, I’m practically bald, so … N/A?

Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different popcorns?
Yes, I am not a fan. I think the popcorn tastes like stale air, and leaves a gnarly film on the roof of my mouth. 🙂

Have you ever been to a planetarium?
Yes — planetariums rock balls. The last one I went to was in D.C., I went with Lady Jaye and her family.

Do you re-use towels after you shower?
Yes, we cycle them out about once a week.

Some things you are excited about?
I got paid today, and my virtual zombie RPG game that’s resuming next Tuesday.

What is your favorite flavor of JELLO?
I don’t eat Jell-O. That shit is nasty.

Describe your keychain(s)
My house keychain has a single metal ring with a Homestar Runner star attached to it. That ring holds my house key and the keys to the Montero. My other daily carry key ring is for Inara, and only has the remote keyfob and ignition key. My motorcycle key ring has my bike key, my house key, and my hardcase keys.

Where do you keep your change?
I have a plastic Eskimo Joe’s cup underneath my nightstand. I don’t get much change.

Do you sleep with the door to your room open or closed?
Open, because the room gets too stuffy otherwise. I would prefer to sleep with it closed and reinforced.

Did you read this far? Consider yourself tagged.
