I was tagged by The Clam for this, so here we go …

1. Do you wear a name tag at work?

Generally, no. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever had a job that required a name tag. The closest I’ve come is wearing one at conferences.

2. What kind of car do you drive?

I don’t. I can’t see well enough to get a driver’s license. However, if I DID drive, I would drive either (1) a Mercedes (if money were no object) or (2) whatever I could afford that was in relatively good shape.

3. What do you order when you go to Taco Bell?

It varies somewhat, but it’s usually some combination of 7-layer burrito, burrito supreme, soft taco, bean burrito.

4. Have you ever had a garage sale?


5. What colour is your iPod?


6. What kind of dog do you have?

A very obnoxious pug/border terrier mix. Anyone want a dog?

7. What’s for dinner tonight?

I don’t know. Probably whatever seems like a good idea in a few hours.

8. What is the last alcoholic beverage you had?

I think it was a rye and ginger on Boxing Day.

9. Stupidest thing you ever did with your cell phone?

I don’t think I’ve ever done anything stupid with my phone.

10. Last time you were sick?

I had the beginnings of a cold this past weekend, but I seem to have evaded the worst of it.

11. How long is your hair?

Right now, about 1/4″. In a few hours, it’ll probably be a LOT shorter.

12. Are you happy right now?

More or less.

13. What did you say last?

Probably something in the ‘shut up’ vein, directed at the dog.

14. Who came over last?

The Clam, this past weekend.

15. Do you drink beer?

Yes, and I enjoy it very much.

16. Have your brothers or sisters ever told you that you were adopted?

No, because I don’t have any brothers or sisters.

17. What is your favourite key chain on your keys?

I don’t have a key chain. My keys are attached to a very simple and functional key ring.

18. What did you get for graduation?

A diploma.

19. What’s in your pocket?

Nothing (can I make a joke about being happy to see you?)

20. Who introduced you to Dane Cook?

Who the f*** is Dane Cook?

21. Has someone ever made you a Build-A-Bear?

No, thankfully. I didn’t really like teddy bears when I was small, and I like them even less now (yes, I was born a curmudgeon).

22. What DVD is in your DVD player?

Disc 1, Season 3 of M*A*S*H.

23. What’s something fun you did today?

Drank coffee – one of life’s simple pleasures.

Some awful, unknown song on the radio and the dog whining in the background.
