So my store is in a rut after the decimation. I've been too busy playing poker and sitting around to make stuff, but I'll get my second wind eventually. Until then, here's another survey:

1. The phone rings. Who do you want it to be?
Publisher's Clearing House

2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart?
Yes. There's a circle of hell reserved specifically for those who don't.

Question 3 has disappeared.

4. Do you take compliments well?
Not really. I'm torn between my kneejerk reaction to make a self-effacing comment and my kneejerk reaction to be diplomatic and polite and just say thank you. I will implode one day.

5. Do you play Sudoku?
Like none other.

6. If abandoned alone in the wilderness would you survive?
Yes. I would turn feral immediately.


7. Do you prefer hot pockets or pizza rolls?
I prefer a potato skin.


8. If ur house was on fire, what would b the 1st thing u would grab?
First, I object to the abbreviated newspeak used in this question. Second, I thought my house was on fire once, and I ran back in and grabbed the cat. I'd like to make a joke here, but deep down I would know the truth. Then again, this is before I had the Wii, so maybe things change.

Anyway, it turned out my house wasn't on fire. My neighbors were just douches.


9. Who was the last person you slept in the same bed with?
You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here.

10. Who do you text the most?
Joe, but only about poker and Denny's, so don't go getting a bigger, fatter head about this, Joe. You suck.

11. Favorite children's book?
Alice Adventure's in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass

12. What color are your eyes?
The color of envy

13. If you could do it over again, start from scratch, would you?
Not from scratch. I wouldn't mind doing it over again knowing what I know now. But what tool wouldn't take that option?

14. Any secret admirers?
I have to beat them off with a stick.


15. When was the last time you were at Olive Garden?
I was probably in shorts and a Mickey Mouse t-shirt. And I'm pre-empting any "So you were there last Tuesday?" comments with a middle finger and some choice words.

Question 16 went looking for question 3.

17. Where was the furthest place you traveled?
Just London

18. Do you like mustard?
I generally do not need mustard, but I won't bitch and moan if I get it.

19. Do you prefer to sleep or eat?
I can do both at the same time.

20. Do you look like your mom or dad?
Mom. My twin looks like my dad. Between the two of us, we can rule out any true paternity questions.

21. How long does it take you in the shower?
About 4 minutes. I'm disgusting.

22. What movie do you want to see right now?
The Golden Compass

23. What did you do for New Year's Eve?
I shot off a Friendship Pagoda. It's remains the highlight of my year.


24. Do you think The Grudge was crappy?
I thought it was crappy, but fun. The Grudge 2, however, was a crime against humanity.


25. Do you own a camera phone?
No. I used to. I took maybe 2 pictures with it, and I really wish I had been able to get those pictures to a more permanent home, but wasn't willing to shill out the cash. Camera phones suck ass.

26. Was your mom a cheerleader?
Based on genetics, probably not. But I really have no idea, and I'm not going to ask.

27. What's the last letter of your middle name?
æ. Figure that one out.


28. How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
Between 2 and 12.

29. Do you like care bears?
I do indeed. I bought a book on how to crochet care bears with the intention of altering them to create my own line of care bears. But I intend to do a lot of things.


30. What do you buy at the Movies?
I recently put my repulsion to movie theater meat aside (thank you for years of trauma, bagel dogs) and started ordering hot dogs. I sometimes get a slush. I sometimes get a soda. I sometimes get twizzlers. I sometimes get popcorn. I'm very adventurous.

31. Do you know how to play poker?
I do. I play in a league several nights a week. However, this question did not ask if I knew how to play poker well, which would have yielded another answer entirely.

32. Do you wear your seatbelt?
Most of the time.


33. What do you wear to sleep?
Whatever I wore that day.

34. Anything big ever happen in your town?
I was born.

35. Is your hair straight or curly?
straight until it gets to a certain length, then it gets kind of wavy and strange.

36. Do you dye your hair?
I dye it black. It looks jet goth fake black at first, but after a shower or two (which, for me, means in about a week or two - I am disgusting), it starts to look like a very natural black and I feel a bit like a fraud.

37. Do you like Liver and Onions?
I'm not sure I've ever had it.

38. Have you ever been in love?
I think you might actually have to like people first in order for that to happen.

39. Do you like funny or serious people better?
I suppose I'll take an always serious person over some one who is constantly cracking jokes - so long as they're not too much of a tool anyway, but really, both suck. There are times to be funny and times to be serious and times to shut up altogether.

40. Ever been to L.A.?
When I was a kid, I think. I've really got no desire to go back.

41.What is on your mind right now?
Lisa needs braces. Dental plan. Lisa needs braces. Dental plan.


42. What's your favorite song at the moment?
Blonde Redhead - S.W. is what I've been listening to the most lately.


43. Do you hate chocolate?
I don't hate it, but I don't exactly go around wearing those terrible "Just give me the chocolate and no one gets hurt" shirts either.

44. What do you and your parents fight about the most?
I don't really fight with them, but I wasn't too happy when they kept scheduling repairmen to stop by the house on my days off instead of their own days off.

45. Are you a gullible person?
I'm not you-could-sell-me-the-Brooklyn-Bridge gullible. But I am gullible to the point I'd look up gullible in the dictionary to see if it's there. It's not, by the way. I checked.

47. If you could have any job what would it be?
A movie critic who only had to see movies I wanted to see anyway and who didn't actually have to write anything.

48. Are you easy to get along with?
At work and other places where I have to get along with people or life just gets more difficult for everyone involved - but mostly for me, I am a fucking dream. This is because I learned the hard way that I have to get along with everyone or life just gets more difficult for everyone involved - but mostly for me.

Outside of work and the like, I don't want anything to do with almost anyone.

49. What is your favorite time of day?
Probably around 10pm - 12 am.

50. Are you a generally happy person?
I am a generally rageful person.
