Sunday Stealing: Random Randomness

  1. 421-33FrHow did you choose your baby's or pet's names?
    * Two of my girls and my son were named because we liked the name. One of my daughters was named after a baseball player that was a big deal the year she was born.
    * The kitties were named Ms. Cleo after the cat in Pinocchio, I added the “Ms” because she demanded it. Rueben was named after the delicious sandwich.  
  2. Have you ever been fishing?
    * Yes, I used to enjoy fishing with my Papa. I haven’t been fishing in years. I don’t know if you know this, but you can get all the fish you want at Safeway.
  3. Have you ever had your national flag painted on your face?
    * No
  4. What was the last social faux pas you made?
    Speaking the truth in a case review meeting.
  5. What makes you nostalgic?
    * The “what if” moments. Those moments where you wonder if things would be dramatically different if I would have turned left instead of right; said no instead of yes.
  6. What's the scariest thing you've ever done?
    * Going under general anesthesia.
  7. What fairy tale character would you most associate with?
    * Shrek – grouchy, loveable, helpful when there is a need… but in the end he just wants to be left alone to enjoy his space.
  8. How much do you tend to swear in public?
    * More than I should… I do try to censor myself, but when I’m surrounded by ignorance, it can be difficult.
  9. If you ruled your own country, who would you get to writer your national anthem?
    * Eric Idle
  10. Who is the most intelligent person you know?
    * I have a couple friends whom I know I can turn to for sage advice.
  11. What's the craziest thing you've ever done for someone?
    * Pretended to be straight.
  12. What's the worst piece of advice anyone has ever given you?
    * In regard to the struggle to come to terms with my sexuality… “just stop it, you’re going to lose everything”. Sadly, they were mostly right.
  13. If you had to describe yourself as a flavor, what would it be?
    * Frank’s Red Hot Sauce… sweet at the front, with a spicy finish.
  14. If you had to describe yourself as a car, what would it be?
    * An Explorer… beefy, strong, yet stylish.
  15. bears_pg01If you had to describe yourself as an animal, what would it be?
    * RAWR… I’m a BEAR! Cuddly, cute, strong… but I’ll rip your throat out if you screw with me.

  2. One of my cats very emphatically wants to be called MISS Maggie.

  3. YEP! Shrek is my altered-ego... cool responses.

  4. A bear is a good, multifaceted choice! And I'd like to live in a land with an Eric Idle anthem.

  5. I was driving through the woods and saw a black bear today! Were you in Northern Maine?

    1. Oh I would love to visit Maine one day.... but it wasn't today.
