669 and Still Typing

Happy Monday! Well, one of the two, anyway.

Not much has happened of late. This weekend I drove (by myeself, thank you) into Madison and sold $27 worth of books at Frugal Muse, this great used bookstore on the West Side. Bought $25 worth of books and CDs, so it came out about even. Sunday I went to church and later served coffee, helped clean up, etc at a church-run spaghetti supper.

Filled out Aaron N.'s 669-question survey he sent me. He didn't think I would, but he underetimated me again! Mwahahahaha! Hilights below:

!!!!!! getting personal !!!!!!
31. What do you want to be when you grow up? Fiction writer. Possibly a pastor too.
33. What is your most embarrassing story? Um... It's too embarassing.
37. What are you most scared of? Sock puppets.
38. If you had an extra set of eyes were would you put them? In the back of my head. Take that, authority figures.
39. What do you usually think about before you go to bed? Song lyrics, real or imagined.
40. What do you regret the most? Actually, what Aaron said--hiding in a corner, not being social.
41. If you could be anything, what would you be? Me, only with more money.
*******Your Favorite***********
56. Color: Red. Like the blood of my enemies.
57. Magazine: Mad.
58. Name for a girl: Elspeth. It just sounds cool.
59. Name for a boy: Cliff.
60.Sports team: Green Bay Packers.
71. Saying: "The difference between the right word and almost the right word is like the difference between lightning and a lightning bug."
-Mark Twain
72. Word: Fundegelical.
88. Sound: Projectiles whistling through the air, just barely missing me. Metal clashing on metal, in a fight to the death. A Cape Breton Fiddle, played expertly at high speed. A hawk's cry over wild country.
93. Book: Lord Jim, by Joseph Conrad; A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, by James Joyce; The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain. Sin Boldly, by me ;-).
273. Are you a good speller? Yess. Ey kan spel reel guud.
*** what do you think when you hear this name ***
300. Jennifer: The name of a woman who works at a furniture store, is a driven professional, has little time for realtionships. She is rather shallow, and has no deep thoughts. (Sorry, writer...)
302. Megan: Pretty, sweet. This may be because of Megans I've known in the past or just the connotations my writer's mind draws up.
303. Brandon: Hyper, thinks alot, lots of energy (based on the only Brandon I know personally). Also a legendary Irish monk. 304.
Angela: Cheerleader.
306. Courtney: Love. Enough said.
308. Mike: Football player, broad-shouldered, no subtlety.
309. Nikki: Free-spirited. No idea why.
310. Ryan: I've known alot of Ryans, and most of them were annoying.
311. Lauren: Quiet, dignified, smart. Good dancer. Based Partly on a Lauren I once knew, partly on the name's connotations.
316. Holly: Her parents were probably hippies, if they named her that. ;-)
317. Jackie: Annoying girl, real into sports, wonders why she can't find a boyfriend. (Knew her a long time ago.)
319. Caroline: Makes me think of a girl from a Victorian household, sweet and eager to please her parents, but also independant and wanting to be free. Might be a good story, but it's been done.
323. Erin: Excellent name. Ireland's name in its native tongue! Erin go Bragh!
345. (Which of your friends is) Always negative: Me, which is complimented nicely by Elizabeth's "Always positive".
508. Last song stuck in your head: Actually, it's in there now--Flogging Molly's "Wanderlust"
509. What line/verse from the song? Ahem... Do you walk the streets at night/With that wanderlust you fight/Back to the corner where we went our seperate ways...
528. Kids names (girls): I think I'm just going to give them numbers. Odd numbers for girls, and
529. Kids names (boys): Even numbers for boys.
667. So, do you have any final words? Oh look, I'm bald. And wrinkled. You know what this means? I GAVE YOU THE BEST YEARS OF MY LIFE! And what did you give me back? NOTHING!
668. Say something great about the person who sent you this: Aaron's pretty cool. I in no way blame him for my idiocy in filling this out. And when we take over Canada, he can choose one person to save. ;-)
669. What time is it now? 3:53 PM, Central Standard Time. I finished the bloody thing in three sittings.

Yeah. And for anyone who actually read all that, I have a gold plated award of some kind.

0. You're right. I didn't expect you to complete it.

41. I wish you luck with the money, Mr. Writer.

508. On what album is "Wanderlust"?

528 and 529. Kind of like the family from Peanuts?

668. The rest of Heidi's family still holds a grudge over my letting them die. Thanks a lot.
