Month: April 2011

  • April survey


    What's important about April?
    I had no idea until this got me curious and I search engined it. 

    What were you doing at 8:00 this morning?
    Cursing the hideous irony that has bubbled up around the 'progression' of xanga root command, forbidding me any widgets in my header, footer, or even a custom module should I go premium, after 7 years of coding to my heart's content.

    Can you honestly say that things are running smoothly for you?
    I wound up at a walk in clinic over a cashew allergy blowing up on me today.  Thank goodness I had benadryl in the car with me, not sure I could have made the 15 minute drive without it.  In all consideration, I guess actually making it in the door as quickly as I did was about as smooth as it could get.

    Who made you laugh last?
    Chris Hardwick on Web Soup.  Stuff like this.

    On G4.

    What are you currently waiting for?
    A youtube to load.  I really don't wait for much else, except food.

    Is it possible to be single and happy?
    I'm single every day that Scott works for about 12 hours.  I'm good with it, and then I'm happy to see him come home.  Best of both worlds.

    If I say "psycho", who is the first person that comes to your mind?
    Scott's ex-wife.  Oh, the stories we could tell.  Actually, I could do a whole blog on just her.  Running up the street naked, stoned. and crystalized out her mind, years of stuff.  Mighta been funny if I hadn't spent nearly 20 years raising her child for her.

    Who was the last person to call you and why?
    Too bad it wasn't my dad, that would be a whole other blog in itself.  He thinks he has an immunity to diabetes (it's contagious, you know), the rapture was supposed to have happened several times throughout my life and now it's May 21st of this year (he reneged briefly and said Easter, but that was more like a safety guess because it *coulda*), drinks a whole can of coconut milk in his homemade smoothie (I looked up all the ingredients, 1000 grams of fat, I kid you not), actually followed a preacher to his house and insisted on coming in to debate his biblical knowledge until the guy insisted he leave before he called the cops, stuff like that.  And that's just since he hit 78.  He's 81 now.  If you wanna know how to live a really long fulfilled life without doctors and psychologists, study my dad.

    Do you plan on sleeping in tomorrow?
    Scott has fasting lab, and then we're going out to breakfast, so we'll be shoving our way through the clinic doors with really old people who can power walk to the front of the line like they're handing out coupons to Cracker Barrel.  That scares us.

    What's annoying you?
    Wow, a challenge.  A thousand words or less?  My insurance company is scouring my entire medical history from 2 years ago to now, demanding I pay them back thousands of dollars, not realizing I canceled my automatic medicare part B after the disability hearing.  Seriously, two months after that happened, I really had no idea I was automatically enrolled until a card and letter came in the mail, informing me they'd already taken out monthly fees going back to 2008, and that I'd never get them back even though I had absolutely no chance to use the program.  Some idiot in my insurance company suddenly discovered there was ~gasp~ a medicare card in my life, and never bothered to research what happened with it, so now I'm under investigation for apparent full blown insurance fraud or something.  All doctors involved have already been alerted, and all medical paperwork covering the last two years is now most likely permanently screwed.  I blame our current administration for this utter panic and resultant witch hunt, as insurance companies have folded and dropped like flies, causing many insurance policy changes rippling through our greatly confused nation.

    Do you know anyone with the same middle name as you?
    I really wish my parents had been more creative.  My middle name is so common that at least a quarter of my graduating class (both boys and girls) had it.  Now you're wondering what it is.

    Dated someone more than once?
    Scott was ready to marry me after the 3rd date.  Now we wonder if I was a slut or if he was that hard up.  Turns out we clicked.  We're both very bossy and stubborn oldest children, and neither one of us likes other people.  Match made in heaven.

    Where did you get the last shirt you were wearing?
    Not the current shirt?  The last shirt came from Southwest Indian Foundation - Navajo, Zuni, and other native crafts...(I grew up just 16 miles from the Navajo Nation reservation.)  A checkout girl at the grocery store exclaimed that the graphics were the same stuff from Ancient Aliens, which her dad watches all the time.  I'm waiting on new shows myself (summer 2011).  I like this guy, Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, owns the Legendary Times site.

    Are there any stressful situations in your life?
    Let's see, cashew allergy, insurance witch hunt, my mother-in-law lives next door...  I actually like her, but it takes a lot of tongue biting.

    Would you be surprised if your parents had another baby together?
    Since I am post-parent (I'm sure Dad could still pull an Abraham and have a miracle child, except he has never shown interest in another woman besides Mom), we'll go back in time and reveal what a surprise *I* was, bumping an older sib off in vitro so I could be conceived instead.

    Do you still talk to your friends from elementary school?
    Scott keeps track of who from his high school has died already.  I have no idea where in the world any of my old classmates are and what they are doing.  A guy from high school became a mayor for awhile, and I laughed my head off.

    So, the person you like, their name starts with a S, doesn't it?
    Scott, wow, you're telepathic.

    Have you ever thought about getting your tongue pierced?
    After seeing a few rotting tongues, no.

    Do you believe what comes around goes around?
    I have yet to receive as much back as I've dished out, both good and bad.

    If you had a tree that could grow anything you want, what would it grow?
    Anything I want... hyperdimensional avocados.  But would I be able to tell?

    Is there someone you used to talk to every day that you don't talk to at all?
    People flee from me.

    Would you consider adoption?
    Raised a druggie's child, see above.  She turned out real good, btw, runs her own legitimate biz now and cleared over $20,000 last year.  Actually went to college.  Never got pregnant in high school.  I never considered it, more like thrust into it via marrying her dad, but I'd say it was worth changing history.  You didn't know you could do that, did you, actually change history.

  • Finish the Sentence survey


    [Finish The Sentence]

    If I could choose another name for myself, it would be ...

    On my birthday, I like to ...
    ~would~ like to be waited on hand and foot all day by real slaves.

    My closet is ...
    The neatest room in the house, because Scott is obsessed with it.

    The last place you'd ever find me is ...
    a tarantula ranch.

    If I had $100 right now, I would ...
    I am so sorry I put two cajun style brats in this soup, yowza, ok where were we-- oh yeah, a hundred bucks.  I'd prolly just toss it aside and keep watching tv, really not going anywhere today.

    After I shower, I always ...
    always a shower question in these things.  No one ever asks how often I shower.

    My dog always ...

    When watching a movie, I prefer to snack on ...
    right now it's herring pickled in wine sauce, following an organic salad.  Hey, I've lost nearly 30 pounds, I'm not gonna whine about missing the candy and stuff.

    This summer, I plan on ...
    I really need to catch up on last year's dried garlic bulbs, this year's wild garlic all over my back yard will have to be pulled soon.

    If someone could read my mind right now, they'd probably hear ...
    wow, the person before me had issues...  Well, if you're up for dodecahedrons, you can surf around Math Artwork for awhile, because what you'll see going on in my brain lately is super funky and I'm not sure you'd get anything coherent from it without context.  I guess this would help, too, if you are intrigued.  Dodecahedron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    The last letter of my surname is ...
    you really don't care, and I don't either.

    My musical tastes are ...
    Hilary Stagg, Kitaro, Troika, Enigma, yeah, you prolly don't recognize any of them because you're stuck in the bland world immediately surrounding you.

    I'm always taking pictures of ...
    whoa, ok stop.  Gotta share this.  I decided to start cleaning off my hard drive, deleted a bunch of old pix out of 'my pix', right?  Discovered there was another 'my pix' full of really old stuff.  Then I discovered that 'aol downloads' has been keeping every single graphic or image from every single email for the last 2 years, you wouldn't believe the crap I had to delete.  Then I thought ok, may as well go through the scanner and print shop and wipe out some really old stuff going back 5 years.  Then I thought heck, may as well hit the backup drive while I'm at it.  I have so far deleted thousands of useless files and defragged 11% of my hard drive.  I was aghast at how many times a variety of Nancy Pelosi pix had been duplicated throughout my hard drive into multiple folders, among many other disturbing things.  I have no idea what the heck my computer thinks it's doing, but I'm firewalled to the gills, so these are internal protocols replicating everything.  I suggest the rest of you go on search and destroy missions and find out what all is lurking in your own hard drives unbeknownst to you.

    When I look to my left, I see ...
    woulda been way more interesting if you'd said look to my right.

    I can't wait until ...
    Scott gets home and he tries this soup.  >=)  heh heh.

    The next concert I'm going to is ...
    I do my own mosh pit at home.  It's cleaner and more convenient.

    Right now, I'm listening to ...
    the purring hum of a super cleaned out hard drive.  Yeah, that took me 3 days, and I'm actually still not done.

    I would love it if ...
    Seriously, the slave thing.  They should all be dressed as scifi characters and clean my house and give me massages and carry me around to the deck and back.

    The colour of the shirt I'm wearing is ...
    the iconic Homestar Runner red tee with the big white star.  Someone fist bump me.

    I have never ...
    eaten sushi.  I imagine one of these days I may have to investigate.

    The last text message I received was from ...
    life has become so bland that this and the shower question inevitably excite people.

    I'm not pleased with ...
    how dang hot that soup is, you'd think I put a habanero in it or something.  Those wily cajun brat makers.

    My latest addiction is ...
    I'm lately enjoying the laziness of much better health after years of very poor health.  It's funny, but laying around watching tv feels ~really good~ now.

    I only kinda like ...
    there is no kinda.  I either like it or I don't.

    My parents ...
    one is croaked off, the other thinks the rapture will be any time.  A more mature person would have written "My in-laws...".  Way more interesting train wreck there.

    If I won an all-expenses-paid trip somewhere, I'd choose to go to ...
    How long are all expenses paid?  Where I choose to go depends on whether I get a weekend, two weeks, a month, a year...

    I want to have a deep conversation with ...
    my chickens.

    The last thing I ate for dinner was ...
    I could lie and you'd never know it.  Truth be told, I made a horrible mistake eating my fill of 7 layer dip and chips yesterday for lunch and spiked my blood sugar high enough to make me deeply regret it for hours (people wonder why they get nasty headaches, bet half of them could be explained away with a glucose meter), so I stuck to teeny snacks of proteins and healthy fats last evening to keep it down around 100.  Cashews can save your life, man.

    I'd love to be interviewed by ...
    no, no more questions.  I'm done with curiosity from the masses.

    If I could turn invisible, the first thing I'd do is ...
    prolly keep watching tv.  It's been raining for days, what else do you do with yourself alone in the house and it sux outside when you're invisible.

I've started transferring my survey posts over to Surveypalooza so people coming in from search engines on mobile devices will be able to see the surveys.


Apologies for the missing vids, another upgrade during the server migration swept through like a scan sweeping through the Enterprise. I'll fix those later, kinda busy...
