A Meme I Saw (or Two)

The Seven Deadly Sins:

1. Who did you last get angry with?
My roommate. She was lame in picking me up for Intercon C (two hours late).

2. What is your weapon of choice?
Real: Katana
Fake: Blue lightsaber

3. Would you hit a member of the opposite sex?
That's the problem. Chivalry and modern social graces dictate that I can't hit women, so I don't. Though, I will go mental in self-defense. As for defending someone I love, I like to think that I have the girlfriend who can kick serious ass (including my own) :)

4. How about of the same sex?
Only in self-defense, or to defend someone I love.

5. Who was the last person who got really angry at you?
Hard to tell. People hide it occasionally. Probably my supervisor several months ago.

6. What is your pet peeve?
Hypocrisy, self-righteousness (Ex: "Jesus told me that I should bomb that abortion clinic"), not being taken seriously, not being listened to.

7. Do you keep grudges, or can you let them go easily?
I don't keep grudges forever. To be honest, it took a year not to hate each of my exes. I'm just glad I can count that number with one hand.

1. What is one thing you're supposed to do daily that you haven't done in a long time?
Job hunt nowadays. Exercise. Shave (if you count 4 days as a long time)

2. What is the latest you've ever woken up?

3. Name a person you've been meaning to contact, but haven't?
Old teachers from high school. They've been my mentors. A few MIT friends I haven't seen in months.

4. What is the last lame excuse you made?
Missing work because I was ill.

5. Have you ever watched an infomercial all the way through (one of the long ones...)?
Hell no!

6. When was the last time you got a good workout in?
Dancing at Intercon C. Lost some weight this weekend.

7. How many times did you hit the snooze button on your alarm clock today?
Got a wake-up call from the hotel. No snooze button.

1. What is your overpriced yuppie beverage of choice?
Long Island ice tea. (I feel so dirty)

2. Meat eaters: white meat or dark meat?

3. What is the greatest amount of alcohol you've had in one sitting/outing/event?
I'm a big drinker. Had at one party many years ago 4 rum&cokes plus one margarita (threw up later on in the toilet).

4. Have you ever used a professional diet company?
Nope. Never needed one before.

5. Do you have an issue with your weight?
A little. Trying to avoid getting the belly most people my age (25) now have.

6. Do you prefer sweets, salty foods, or spicy foods?
Depends on the mood.

7. Have you ever looked at a small housepet or child and thought, "LUNCH!"?
Yep, especially cats.

1. How many people have you seen naked (not counting movies/family)?
Only double digits. Apparently, that number continues to grow with each hot tub party :)

2. How many people have seen YOU naked (not counting physicians/family)?
14 (Yes, I know all their names)

3. Have you ever caught yourself staring at the chest/crotch of a member of the opposite sex?
Hell yeah. Breasts and butts galore!

4. Have you "done it"?
Finally :)

5. What is your favorite body part on a person of your gender of choice?
I see the big picture. I like meaty women.

6. Have you ever been propositioned by a prostitute?
Unfortunately. Long story. And, NO I DID NOT ACCEPT!!!

7. Have you ever had to get tested for an STD or pregnancy?
HAD to?
Not really. I was a virgin male during my last complete check-up.

1. How many credit cards do you own?

2. What's your guilty pleasure store?
Godiva. I have a weakness for their chocolate-covered strawberries.

3. If you had $1 million, what would you do with it?
Pay off debt, buy a house, buy my parents a house, and go on a great vacation.

4. Would you rather be rich, or famous?
Rich, definitely. But I wouldn't mind both. As long as it's not the fame of being noticed and mobbed everywhere I go.

5. Would you accept a boring job if it meant you would make megabucks?
Depends how boring, how many hours, and how mega the bucks. However, for a while, I can honestly say "Been there. Done that."

6. Have you ever stolen anything?
Not really.

7. How many MP3s are on your hard drive?
Too many.

(1)Cthulia. (Snark my bitch up!)
(2)The president. I know I can do a better job.

3. If you could be anyone else in the world, who would you be?
Tom Hanks or Robin Williams.

4. Have you ever been cheated on?
Don't think so, but my exes were good liars.

5. Have you ever wished you had a physical feature different from your own?
Sure, all the time. It's always the debate over whether to go short-hair, average body, or go Goth-like paleness with long ponytail and skinny body.

6. What inborn trait do you see in others that you wish you had for yourself?

7. Do you wish you'd come up with this survey?

Gambit (X-Men). I like his charisma with the ladies, his ability to wield the staff, his ability to throw explosive cards, and his trenchcoat.

4. Would you put your life in danger to rescue someone?
Of course. There is actually a vision I keep having regarding a ledge (like in "Cliffhangar"). Wierd.

5. If you were to face the Wizard, would you want more courage, more brains, or more heart?

6. Have you ever gotten stage fright? If so, when?

It depends on the situation.

1. Have you ever been summoned for jury duty?
Yes. Had to take the commuter rail to go to Lowell at 6am just to have someone tell me to go home. Grrrr.

2. If they reinstituted the draft (for both genders), would you go, or would find some way out of it?
I would go for something like WWII, not like Bush's "war"

Not officially.

4. Which should be guaranteed legal?

Hell no. He cheated.

I hate media circus trials. This is intensified after seeing "Chicago".

7. Have you ever written a letter to a politician?
President Bush, Sr. when I was 11. I received a presidential award from him. Funny enough, it came with a family photo which includes Dubya and Jeb. If only I knew then...

Sometimes! If nothing else, when I don't take it, it helps me clarify what I really want to do instead.

Being the calm, rational one to see logic and reason in anything. I'm also wisest in being the "nice guy" though it doesn't help in getting me laid.

5. Do you drive defensively?

6. Have you ever had unprotected sex outside of marriage?
