Well, I just got back from a 10 day trip and although I have plenty to write about, I'm not going to today. Instead, I'm going to skive a meme from Sandra:

last thing you burned while cooking?
People still have time to cook? Actually I cook 4 to 5 nights a week, and at risk of sounding like I’m bragging, I’m pretty good at it and can’t remember the last time I burned something.

describe yourself in 3 words?
I’m a Gemini, so I get 6 words: bold/shy, cold/hot, intelligent/ignorant.

how long does it take you to get ready for your day?
22 minutes – like clockwork.

are you a health freak?
Nope. I’m pretty open to most foods though – so I often end up liking things that just happen to be healthy as well. That is, until a week or two later when Harvard, Case or some other prestigious medical school comes out with a study that says that whatever it was that you thought was healthy really isn’t and what you thought wasn’t healthy really is – then I realize that it’s all a pretty relative concept.

how many people have thought you were the one?
I’d say at least 6 or 7. But really the question should be, “How many psychos have you dated?”

what turns you off about the opposite sex?
No self identity. Failure to consider the world outside of dating, hair and nails.

what kind of car do you drive?
Toyota 4Runner!

favorite thing to toast to?
Me!! Actually, I like toasting to anything that I’m feeling in my heart – which may change depending on how many drinks I’ve had.

what celebrity would you have coffee with?
Warren Buffet

what celebrity would you not have sex with?
Rosie O’Donnell (if she was straight), Starr Jones and Kiera Knightly. Okay, I’m lying about Keira Knightly.

what is the main ringtone on your cell?
A doorbell.

what were you doing at midnight last night?
Answering a phone call while being awakened from a dead sleep.

last tv show you watched?
Rescue Me. Freakin’ hilarious!

who is your best friend?
All of them.

who in your family do you get along with?
Fundamentally everyone. I’ve found that the levels/modes of communication differ amongst them.

what is your top 5 hollywood hottie list?
Kristin Bell, Marisa Tomei, Famke Janssen, Salma Hayek, Liz Hurley – not necessarily in that order. Also, this could change by the hour.

who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
My buddy George.

when/where was the last place you traveled?
Texas and Gulf Coast. Returned yesterday.

how many times have you been in love?
Enough for me to know what it feels like.

how old will you be in 10 years?

what did the last text message you received on your cell say?
“It was great seeing ya buddy! Take care and stay in touch!”

what is a saying you say a lot?
”It's a funny old game!”

sinful snacking weakness?
I’m not a big snacker and rarely crave sweets, but when I do it’s usually cookie-dough ice cream.

best clothing style?

ever run out of gas?
Once in my own car – two or three times as a passenger.

worst date ever?
Several years ago in Florida. She wasn’t really into me and I wasn’t really into her, but she was among a small percentage of young, single women in the community – so I didn’t have much to pick from. We basically stared at each other over dinner – conversation was like pulling teeth. Silent drive home and I never spoke with her again. Really that’s the only truly bad date I can recall. I don’t date someone unless we have enough in common that I know it’ll be good conversation if nothing else.

personal records?
Very few. Plausible deniability.

what would you do if you could be the opposite sex for a day?
Dirty things to myself. Very dirty things. I’d like to add that I would hope that my day to be the opposite sex wouldn’t fall on one of those “days of the month” – because I’m empathetic that you all have to deal with that – but I have no desire to experience it first hand.

total jail time?
Zero. *knocks on wood*

have a crush on anyone you work with?
Not in the office – but do vendors and clients count?

in your cd player right now?
Randy Rogers Band

what is something you believe in?
That nobody is as predictable as you might think.

what is something you fear?
Needles. Heights – if I’m not secured.

big or small?
What? I like all things to be in proportion.

worst physical pain you ever experienced?
My wisdom teeth being pulled. Actually, I couldn't feel that- it was post-op that was the killer.

tell us something about your childhood?
I made friends and enemies equally well. Sometimes enemies became friends and friends became enemies. I learned that ultimately, all you have is you. These days I make few of either, although I feel like I have plenty of (good)friends and can’t think of too many enemies.

best time to catch you in a good mood?
Most of the time.

if you could be anything for a day, what would it be?
God (or whatever controls the universe). There’d be some f-ing changes around here!

most prized possession?
My friends and family.

would you ever sell it?
Everything is negotiable! Seriously though, not a chance.

what is one of your pet peeves?
When people scrape their teeth across their fork as they take a bite of something. It’s like finger nails on a chalk board!!

what song are you listening to right now?
“Wild Horses” by the Rolling Stones.

if you could sucker punch someone right now who would it be?
Well, I was brought up to not sucker punch anyone. If you’re gonna go toe-to-toe, be a man about it. But radicals (of anything) tend to make my blood boil.

any secrets?
That’s classified – I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you.

unhealthy addictions?
Aren’t all addictions unhealthy?

unhealthy fascinations?

favourite sexual position?
I’m a giver, so if you’re a girl – you might just have to find out for yourself. If you’re a guy – we’ll talk about it during poker night.

what do you notice first about the opposite sex?
Depends on the situation. In a bar – it’s what they drink. I think that says a lot about someone.

favourite physical part of the opposite sex?
I’m a guy. Is this a serious question?

what physical part would you change about yourself?
I don’t like this question. I used to not have any problems with my physical self – as I get older, more seem to be popping up.

soft sensual sex or porn star sex?
Depends on the girl. I really like girls that can do both well. With me, both will be tested.

would you go on a date with someone you met online?
I have. I would again.

work attire?
Slacks. Dress shirt. Sometimes tie. Unless my clothes are at the cleaners – then it’s shorts and flip-flops.

what is your best physical feature?
Definitely my eyes. They’ve been called “freakishly blue –in a good way”.

do you think anyone actually has read this far?
Do I count as ‘anyone’?
