From Facebook to here. Let’s edit out the boring ones, shall we?
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
My biological father’s name is Roger. Lee is his brother’s name, but not my original middle name. It was originally Leroy Edgar, a combination of my maternal grandfather’s middle name and my paternal grandfather’s first name. When I was growing up, I was told my middle name was Lee. It was like an acronym. When I was 18 I had the name legally changed.
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
How much tearage is considered crying? Is misting up crying? Do you have to have multiple tears? If we go with misty, I’m going to have to say there is an amazing song that one girl sings in church. It never fails to
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
Nothing against Andrew Osenga, but I’ll go with roast beef. I mean, they make steak and cheese subs out of it, too, right?
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
No. I have three godchildren, though. Officially I have two godchildren, but whatever. I’m kidnapping the third one. You can’t split up the pack.
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
I haven’t decided yet.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
Favorite? I have no idea. Probably something that is not good for me, like Fruity Pebbles. For quite a while, I’ve been sticking to the good old Total Raisin Bran, though. I don’t know why; it doesn’t keep me thin.
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
Some of them. I have sneakers that I wear around and on the treadmill that just stay tied. I have shoes I wear to work that get untied.
(What happened to question 12? Was it that bad?)
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup. I have two in the freezer. One’s my wife’s, but she won’t mind if I eat it.
14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
I’d say an overall look. I probably immediately categorize them: Little old lady, short fat lady, punk, teeny-bopper, jock, yuppy, etc.
16. WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
Lack of drive/ambition.
17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
I’m not sure. I miss my friends Randy Matheson, John Woodard, and Kris Mailepors. I love Facebook for the simple fact that I have kind of found them again. I wish I could spend more time with my cousin David. I miss my great grandmother who raised me during some very formative years. I’m satisfied with all I have, though, and I don’t spend much time missing people.
21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
The heater. I can’t concentrate well on reading or writing if there’s music in the background.
22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
Midnight. I like dark blue. Before blue, red/orange was my favorite color. Or was it orange/red? The two weren’t the same, and I only really liked one of them.
23. FAVORITE SMELLS?
Fritos, campfire, steak (cooked, not raw)
25. DO YOU LIKE THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU?
Very much. I kind of miss him, too, but I feel like I lost out on my chance to spend time with him when he lived around here. Now I have no right to wish him back. I suck.
27. HAIR COLOR?
Brown. It was blonde when I was born, though.
28. EYE COLOR?
29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
When my eyes don’t reject them. In the last year or so, my eyes don’t seem to tolerate my contacts. They will get red and irritated after just a couple hours. That makes for an uncomfortable day at work. It stinks, too, because I’ve never really been a glasses person until recently. In high school, when my eyes first started going bad, I went straight to contacts. Grumble. It might be time to try Lasix. (sp?)
30 FAVORITE FOOD?
34. SUMMER OR WINTER?
Summer, when I can do things outside. Right now, everything’s buried under about 2 feet of snow, with another foot falling as I type.
35. HUGS OR KISSES?
Kisses. I don’t like almonds.
36. FAVORITE DESSERT?
Probably ice cream…with a lot of close seconds.
39. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
Sherman’s Lagoon: Greatest Hits and Near Misses. Sherman’s Lagoon is a cartoon strip. But we don’t get it around here. Our newspaper is lame.
40. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?
A gel wrist-rest.
43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
I am completely indifferent to both of them.
44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
I guess Austin, TX.
45. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
No, but I ride a special bus! I would like to think I’m a writer, but I need to stop fooling myself.
