3. Single or Taken: Single
4. Favorite Movie: I don't actually have a favourite, but I'll go with MST3K: The Movie.
5. Favorite Song or Album: Today it's Long Hot Summer by The Style Council. Tomorrow it will be something else. :)
6. Favorite Band/Artist: Hmmm. Paul Simon maybe.
7. Dirty or Clean: Me? Clean as all git out.
8. Tattoos and/or Piercings: Don't have any. Just 3 piercings in my ears.
9. Do we know each other outside of LJ? Nope! I'm afraid of Buffalo. ;)
10. What's your philosophy on life? Learn from your mistakes, do the best you can with what you've got and several other cliched things about loving and being kind without letting people stomp all over you.
11. Is the bottle half-full or half-empty? It's got a bunch of stuff in it.
12. Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest? It would depend on the secret, but I'm pretty sure I would say something. Who am I to decide what's in your best interest?
13. What is your favorite memory of us? Exchanging sarcastic quips on LJ. :)
14. What is your favorite guilty pleasure? The Food Network.
15. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: I can't think of a single thing, which is funny given that I'm quite odd and sometimes interesting.
16. You can have three wishes (for yourself, so forget all the 'world peace etc' malarkey) - what are they : I can't actually make wishes ever since I read "The Monkey's Paw". It made me totally superstitious about it.

23. If you could change anything about me, would you? I wouldn't change things about you.
24. What do you wear to sleep? Nothing.
25. Trousers or skirts? Mostly trousers.
26. Cigarettes or alcohol? Neither.
27. If I only had one day to live, what would we do together? My guess is that we would mostly tease each other for being dorky.
28. Will you repost this so I can fill it out for you? Sure! But you'd better fill it out.

Ohhh! I've barely seen any of the episodes, I haven't found many around here. When I saw the movie in the theatres I laughed HARD through the whole entire movie. epi_lj and okoshun were scared I'd need medical assistance. Which episodes are your favourites?
fae_dreams wrote:
Jun. 22nd, 2007 04:16 am (UTC)
Do I really have to choose? Ok, lessee ... any of the Hercules episodes - Hercules Unchained, Hercules Against the Moon Men, OR Prince of Space - old Japanese (semi)super-hero movie, where the hero is outfitted in a white spandex jumpsuit and a half-cape a la Evil Knieval(sp?).

Or how about any of the episodes before Joel left?

I liked Joel, yes, but I really liked Mike, too. And Pod People rocked.

1. Do you like your middle name: Yes. It's not a name you hear often plus it's the Americanized version of my mom's name. :)
2. Age: 36
3. Single or Taken: Single.

6. Favorite Band/Artist: Billy Joel
7. Dirty or Clean: Dirty mi-- err. Clean. :) Squeaky...
8. Tattoos and/or Piercings: 3 left ear, 2 right ear. Wish I had tattoos. If I hit my weight goal I'm putting a scorpio on my butt and a yin/yang of carp on my back.
9. Do we know each other outside of LJ? Nope but you seem like you would be quite an amiable intelligent fellow to get to know.
10. What's your philosophy on life? Life's a journey, get lost along the way.
11. Is the bottle half-full or half-empty? Who cares, fill it up!
12. Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest? It would really depend on what the secret was, but for the most part, who'm I to judge?
13. What is your favorite memory of us? (taking a page from Nathan Fillion here) Oh, you know, it was totally that time we went down to see that historical perspective of how rock music has changed the American sociological landscape, and the presenter fainted right onstage and you saved his life... I was totally impressed, dude.
14. What is your favorite guilty pleasure? B&J's creme brulee at the moment... and online gaming (MMORPGs not casinos)
15. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: There was a point I could've quoted all kinds of stuff about all the Trek series... even the TNG or TOS episodes I hadn't seen. You decide if that's odd or intresting. ;)
16. You can have three wishes (for yourself, so forget all the 'world peace etc' malarkey) - what are they : enough money to build my dream house and the land to build it on; my father to be healthy instead of constantly in/out of hospitals lately; and to be able to make a living doing creative stuff and traveling
17. Can we get together and make a cake? You bet :)

22. Describe your accent: Neutral. But I can pick up accents at the drop of a dipthong.
23. If you could change anything about me, would you? I don't know you well enough to want to change anything on you. I would... give you a job where you could work at home to spend more time with that precious baby girl!
24. What do you wear to sleep? Depends on how hot my apt is and if anybody else is around.
25. Trousers or skirts? Trousers. I've always been very Catherine Hepburn that way.

I am equally able with picking up accents, to the point where I'm afraid that people will think that I'm mocking them when I don't mean to be--because believe me, if I mean to mock you, I sure as hell will ;)

I love stuff like this. *rubs hands together* Ok! Let me begin.

1. Yes, more or less.
2. 30
3. Single.
4. It's a toss up, from two completely different ends of the scale. Life is Beautiful, or Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Yes, you've read this correctly. I have a weakness for big, corny musicals.
5. Favorite Album: Haunted by Poe. I love just about every song on that album.
6. Favorite All-Time artist: Eric Clapton, in any of his different incarnations.
7. Dirty
8. Four tattoos. No current piercings.
9. Nope.
10. Hmm. Deep. Okay, I'll use my current favorite quote: Life consists in realizing it is all a great, strange dream. -Ken Kesey
11. Usually half-full.
12. Yes, probably. But it really depends on the secret, doesn't it?
13. Oh, there are so many. I just can't choose. ;)
14. Godiva truffles.
15. Crap. Hmm. I'm really pretty boring. I may have to think on this one.
16. You really like the deep ones, don't you? Okay, lessee: I would love to be independently wealthy, so that I only had to work if I chose; I would love to never have to suffer through writer's block again; and I want to be able to fly.
17. We can get together and I can watch YOU make one. :)
18. I've only ever been outside the country once, so I'm fairly ill-equipped to answer this one. Within the US, I would say that, currently, my valley is my spiritual home. No matter how many times I leave it, an no matter how I enjoy my absence, coming home feels so very comfortable and good.
19. Procrastination. Big time.
20. I don't know you well enough, yet. But I always try to think positively about people until they prove me wrong.
21. English and Creative Writing.
22. I'm told it's a soft southern accent. But those people are crazy. I have no accent, they do.
23. Why would I do that? You seem fine the way you are.
24. It depends on what I've been doing, and who I'm with. If alone, either a big comfy t-shirt, or whatever I happen to fall asleep in.
25. Trousers.
26. Cigarettes, unfortunately. I've never been much of a drinker.
27. Whatever you wanted to do.
28. Sure. I'm always curious about people.

Oh, I do love that Haunted album, especially the single version of "Hey Pretty," with Mark Danielewski reading from House of Leaves during the song.

Kick ass.

We are addicted to "Deadliest Catch" at work, and make it a point to not do any work on Tuesdays between 9 and 10pm.

I'm going to have the day when I have to get a real job ;)

Well, reruns are on at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. every weekday, if that helps. [grin] I'm making my kids crazy - they run screaming every time they hear that theme music come on.

Just wait til I get the whole series on DVD. Heh heh heh.

Ah, I don't have cable, so the only place I can watch it is when I'm at work--which works out fine, since it's much better to watch crab fishin' than to do anything productive for my job ;)
