Tag... I'm It 

Alright, Bev tagged me with this one... so I'll share some of the more mundane random facts about myself.
  1. What time did you get up this morning? 7:30 am... which for me is sleeping in, as sad as that sounds.
  2. Diamonds or Pearls? Why would I have a preference? I'm a guy. Though there is something to be said for a nice pearl necklace.
  3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? That would be Underwold: Evolution.
  4. What is your favorite TV show? Right now, I'd have to say the new Battlestar Galactica on SciFi. Great writing, incredible plots, excellent acting all around, and Tricia Helfer... yum.
  5. What did you have for breakfast? Just coffee. I've never been much of a breakfast person.
  6. What is your middle name? I'm sorry, that's classified information. I hate my middle name.

  9. What is your favorite Potato chip? Pringles... Once you pop, you just can't stop.
  10. What is your favorite CD at the moment? At the moment I'm really enjoying Hot Fuss by The Killers. But at the end of the day, I'll always come back to Dave Matthews Band.

  14. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go? I would love to go to Italy, and maybe stop in Greece.
  15. What color is your bathroom? Blue and Beige... why is this important?
  16. Favorite brand of clothing? I'm pretty agnostic when it comes to brands. Must be the Y chromosome.

  23. What type of detergent do you use? Tide.
  24. Coke or Pepsi? Diet Coke... if I have to choose between the two.
  25. Are you a morning person or a night owl? I can do both equally well actually. Ahhh... youth.

  27. Do you have pets? Not any more. Been thinking of getting another dog though.
  28. Any new and exciting news you'd like to share with everyone? Hmm... nothing at the moment, but when I do... I'll blog about it... I promise.
  29. What did you want to be when you were little? An astronaut... one of the 3 allowed fantasy jobs for young boys (along with fireman and sheriff).
  30. Favorite candy bar? Twix! The one with the cookie crunch!

  33. What color underwear are you wearing? Black boxers if you must know.
  34. Nicknames: Nick, Scooter Bob, Summer Camp, Booness. Only a select few can use anything other than the first without causing serious bodily harm to themselves.
  35. Piercings? I figure I have enough holes in body as it is.
  36. Ever been to Africa? Nope. In fact, I've never been off this continent.
  37. Ever been toilet papered? Hmmm... not that I can remember. That seems sad somehow.
  38. Love someone so much it made you cry? Yes.
  39. Ever been in a car accident? Was in a pretty big one as a passenger, and a minor one driving, which wasn't my fault.
  40. Croutons or bacon bits? What, I can't have both? Fine! If I have to choose, I'll go with bacon bits.
  41. Favorite day of the week? Saturday... duh.

  45. Disney or Warner Brothers? Warner Brothers every day of the week and twice on Saturday morning.
  46. Favorite fast food restaurant? Sadly... McDonald's. Though I don't get a lot of fast food any more. I have to maintain my figure you know.
  47. What color is your bedroom carpet? Grey... or is it gray?
  48. How many times did your fail you drivers test? None! Ha ha!
  49. Before this one, from whom did you get your last email? Does spam count?
  50. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? Probably Wheel and Sprocket. Somehow I can't manage to walk out of there without spending at least $50.

  54. Ford or Chevy? Is there a choice C?
  55. How many tattoos do you have? I hear those really hurt.
  56. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? I don't think eggs are mature enough to come, so I'll say the chicken.
  57. How many people are you sending this survey to? I'm not vindictive enough to tag anyone with something this long. But if there are any masochists out there who want to volunteer to go through the list, be my guest.
Damn... there should be a law limiting how long these things can be. I'm exhausted.


I guess I am a masachist I'll do it. Nothing else to do tonight cuz the house is clean. Hey we have the same favorite ice cream flavor.
