The ABC's of Me

Seen Via Squeaky, Breda, and Falnfenix

The ABCs of Me

Accent: I don't think there's a "hockessin" accent or a northern Delaware accent, so I guess I'm accentless.

Breakfast or no breakfast: Breakfast is almost always a bowl of Life cereal, a glass of milk, and if I have it a glass of no pulp OJ. When I was younger I skipped breakfast a lot or just ate microwaved brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts.

Chore I don’t care for: Umm all of them? I thought the word "chore" automatically implied having to do something I don't care for.

Dog or Cat: Dog. I'm allergic to cats and they're not much fun. Neither are small dogs. Dogs really are man's best friend, except when they let off deadly, silent farts and then leave the room.

Essential Electronics: Computer - I don't know what I'd do without the internet. And my watch. I really don't like not knowing what time it is.

Favorite Cologne: Abercrombie Fierce. The ladies seem to like it so that's what I wear.

Gold or Silver: Gold

Handbag I carry most often: It's called a wallet. Seriously. How much could you possibly need to carry around with you on a daily basis?

Insomnia: Yup, I have that. I think it's a holdover from college

Job Title: Law Clerk - Otherwise known as "office lackey" or "paper pusher"

Kids: I'd require a woman for those, preferably one who's not an emotional nutcase. (God - are you listening?) Oh and really I'd love em' if they'd just pop out fully potty-trained. Baby shit is vile stuff.

Living Arrangements: Suck - my dad = emotional nutcase of the male variety. Drama, Drama, Drama. And he's an anti-gunner. I'm outta here as soon as I can find a more solid job.

Naughtiest Childhood Behavior: Always bugging my sister. She cried easily and I found that quite amusing. In so many pictures she's crying and I'm laughing.

Most Admirable Trait: I don't know, you tell me. I suppose I'm a nice person, at least that's what most people say.

Overnight hospital stays: Several. I took em in stride, even when the morphine spinal tap ran out or I couldn't stop puking my guts out. At least people are trying to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Oh and occasionally you'll get a hot nurse too, which is nice.

Phobias: Heights. Oh, and ending up alone later in life.

Quote: "Reason obeys itself; Ignorance submits to what is dictated to it." - Thomas Paine

Reason to smile: Beauty. There are so many beautiful things in the world and so many beautiful people. Stupidity too. Stupid people are funny and they make me smile.

Siblings: 4. half brother, half sister, and two younger sisters. We may not always get along, but they're all pretty cool people.

Time I wake up: 7AM on weekdays. Usually around 9 on weekends. I slept in this weekend though.

Unusual Talent or Skill: I can crack my knuckles just by making a fist. I've never seen anyone else do it and it freaks people out.

Vegetable I Refuse to Eat: Cauliflower. That stuff is gross. Oh, and beets too.

Worst Habit: Procrastination / lack of motivation / fucking shit up. (It's usually some combination of those three)

X-rays: Right foot and ankle several times, both legs, face - both before and after my jaw surgery.

Yummy Stuff: Kate Beckinsale, Scarlett Johannson....mmm. Did you mean food? Pasta, and homemade rice pudding for dessert.

Zoo Animal I Like Most: Lions, Tigers and Bears Oh My!....... Seriously though, I like monkeys. I'd love a pet monkey if they didn't bite and throw poop.

Hey, we have more in common than you might think...

Procrastination is the worst. I'll do something about it ... tomorrow.

Oh, and I tried the knuckle-cracking fist. Works for me, too, but only in the right.

I grew up in NCC and never thought I had an accent, but we do. We overpronounce/drag our O's. Instead of walking down the row to answer the phone, we walk down the r'ohw'd to answer the ph'ohw'ne. There's a very distinctive accent and it's not always very pretty. We tend to sound a bit white-trashy to be honest.

Dom - I find that depends on the area of NCC you're in.
