5. Last time you swam in a pool? Last Saturday at my brother’s house.

6. Have you ever been in a school play? Never been in a school play. I was in a couple church road shows. Does that count?

8. Type of music you dislike most? That crap I get subjected to at every stop light via the next car’s subwoofer and rattling windows.

9. Are you registered to vote? Of course. I feel like a hypocrite if I wasn’t, considering how much I vent about politics on this blog.

11. Have you ever ridden on a moped? No. Motorcycle many times but never one of those little weed-eaters with wheels.

14. Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving? Yes and yes, in a heartbeat.

15. Furthest place you ever traveled? Wakkanai, Japan. Three plane rides totaling over 18 hours and 12 hours of jet lag. Then a 7 hour train ride to the furthest north point in Japan. It’s one of the prettiest places on the planet if you ask me.

23. What color lipstick do you usually wear? I guess this meme was originally written for women, but I'll play along. I did wear a bright shade of red for the road show in question 6.

24. Have you ever smoked peanut shells? Is this some form of folk remedy to cure athlete’s foot or something? Cause if it works I might try it. My foot really itches.

25. Have you ever been in a beauty pageant? I lack the qualifications.

26. Orange Juice or apple? Usually Orange Juice, but I’m flexible.

27. Who was the last person you went out to dinner with and where did you dine? It was the whole family at Denny’s in West Virginia on the way home from New York. That reminds me.

34. Ever order an article from an infomercial? No

35. Sprite or 7-up? 7-up all the way. There was this Japanese restaurant on Buford Hwy that used to serve 12oz 7-ups in returnable bottles. They’d wet the straw paper and stick it to the side of the bottle when they served it. Those were the best 7-ups on the planet.

36. Have you ever had to wear a uniform to work? Still do. They currently say BellSouth above the left pocket and I’m waiting for my ATT uniforms

39. Would you prefer being a millionaire or find true love? Well, if I can only pick one there is no way I’d trade in the one I already have.

40. Do you believe in love at first sight? Anyone who has ever watched their child being born knows that this is true. I’ve fallen in love at first sight four times.

41. Can exes be friends? I’ve never seen it work too well for others. Personally, since I don’t have and ex and I have absolutely no desire to create one, the answer to this question will have to remain a mystery.

46. What is in your purse? My laptop, two books, a legal pad, a few adaptors and power cords, pens and pencils and a Garmin GPS. My friends at work call it my “man bag”. They can call it whatever they want. It's essentially just a purse.

47. Favorite thing to do before bedtime? Try to carry on a conversation with my wife in sign language while she gargles for exactly two minutes after brushing her teeth. My goal is to get her to laugh so hard she has to spit out the mouthwash before her precisely timed expectoration.

48. What is one thing you are grateful for today? Peace. The kids are playing together very nicely right now. It’s not completely unheard of, but I make a point of noticing when I happens.


  1. Victoria told me you posted these. Your answers are far funnier than mine! Thanks for the good laugh! Donnie hates popcorn for the very reason you explained. The man-bag sounds great! Donnie got a TomTom GPS for his birthday. He downloaded John Cleese's voice. It's his new favorite toy! We love it when we trek the back roads between here and all his siblings' homes on the south side.

    ERRRM,,, I must object to your self evaluation on question Number 32.

    As far as every day cooking goes, I can not make that call for ya, but for your meals I have had the pleasure of enjoying... YES! You are a good cook.
