Thursday Thirteen #49

13 More Stupid Questions and Answers About Me

Still stealing meme questions from other people's blogs to keep up with Thursday Thirteen. All thirteen of today's thingys are stolen without shame from SarahK over at Mountaineer Musings. (She's a super sweet lady and y'all need to go check her blog out, MMMMk? How can you not love a woman who loves that her husband gives her guns for Christmas?)

What curse word do you use the most? Crap. I need to come up with some funny alternates. Like fiddle-dee-dee, and so forth.

Do you own an iPod? Why yes I do. Lovely Wife surprised me with one for Father's Day, and being the anal retentive music guy, I'll probably be several more weeks in getting all of my music files set up like I want them. I want them to all have the file names in the same fashion, be associated with the proper album art, etc. I have 19GB worth of music on there. I haven't even started thinking about getting some pictures or videos on there yet.

Who on your MySpace “Top 8″ do you talk to the most?
I do not have a MySpace page. I pretty much hate going out there because people generally have a background that makes it almost impossible to read the text.

What time is your alarm clock set for?
Set for: 6 a.m. I'm not a person that opens my eyes and just pops out of bed. My Dad was, and Lovely Wife is pretty much. I have always envied folks with that ability.

What color is your room?
Yellow. A guy is painting the inside of our home this week, and he just finished painting our master bed room yellow, and our master bath baby blue. They look nice. Now if he'd just hurry and do the baseboards, door facings, and the doors, I could hook my new Dell back up. It's seriously putting a crimp into my blog writing and visiting, not to mention preparing photos for my photography blog.

Flip flops or sneakers?
Sneakers. It's Florida, and some places even allow flip flops at work, but with my monkey toes, I wear Nikes all the time.

Would you rather take the picture or be in the picture?
Take. I definitely don't like being in photos.

What was the last movie you watched?
DVD of Rocket Man, one of my favorite comedies.

Do any of your friends have children?
Yes. Pretty much all of them.

Has anyone ever called you lazy?
Yes, I call myself lazy. It helps to motivate me to move, pain or no pain. If others have called my that, it was behind my back.

Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep faster?
Yes. Tylenol PM is my friend.

What CD is currently in your CD player?
My portable CD player at home has Rock Garden by Ty Tabor in it.

As I type this, I'm listening to my ipod, and a song called La Futura from the CD Ultra Forever by Fold Zandura is playing.

Do you prefer regular or chocolate milk?
I prefer regular WITH stuff like cereal or cookies, but for just drinking, I prefer chocolate.

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Babystepper said...

Our English teacher always said, "Oh, foo-foo bunny." No, it never really caught on.

Said to say I haven't heard of either of your songs. What type/style are they?

The Rock Chick said...

That's my favorite curse word, too! I didn't realize how often I used it until each one of my kids at the toddler age muttered that word when they dropped something :) OOOPS!

I love my iPod! I have everything on there from music, to home videos and pictures of the kids, to TV shows I missed and forgot to Tivo! It's a wonderful invention!

Happy TT!

Jessica Morris said...

great list! i loved the questions... maybe i'll copy them sometime :)

Qtpies7 said...

Great list! I love these questions you keep finding! LOL
I may have to copy that if I run out of things to do, but I'm on a roll right now, I have more posts to do than I have time for.
And yes, I am all grown up! How awesome is that! LOL I'm so nervous about it all, though, so I know its not true, I'm still immature, and I have the papers to prove it! I took the MMPI a few years ago and it said I was immature and you know what my reaction was? "I am NOT immature!"

Lori said...

Rocket man was a crack up....hey, you dont have a myspace page?? Whats up with that?? lol Great Q&A's...Happy TT.

Hammer said...

I'm wit you on the myspace stuff, can't read it or understand that xxoo lawls rofulcopter language they speak over there.

Careful with that acetominphen, it strips the protective coating off the cells in your liver and makes them more prone to damage.

Clubbs said...

I am also not a "spring out of bed" type. The snooze button is my friend.

Great list, great blog.

With all the golf I play, I have some pretty choice words sometimes and LOVE hearing the phrases and combinations other golfers come up with. But I always restrain myself until someone else breaks the ice with a good expletive.

The other day I was playing with a woman whose most profane comment was "fiddlesticks" and I vividly remember a woman on a golf trip who said, "Jiminy Cricket". I have heard the latter has now progressed in her golf game and uses the S word.

Julie said...

Stupid? Nah. Interesting and informative? Yup!

Oh yeah....I lurve my Nano Pod!

Thanks for sharing JAM!

Travis said...

You know, I think there must be an infinite number of different questions.

I love my Ipod too. I borrowed a bunch of music from the folks recently, and now I've got over 5600 songs! I need to do some organizing again.

~~R~~ said...

Great list I am a night owl but if I need to I can spring outta bed but in about an hour I am dragging lol

Scribbit said...

Chocolate is the drink of choice with my bunch of heathens, but white for me thanks. :)

Good questions though.

J. Lynne said...

Very enlightening. I prefer "holy crap" myself.

I want to trade my iPod mini in for a 30G iPod...and put every Beatles and Monkeys song on it. ;)

Happy belated TT.

Norma said...

I think I'll use this next TT. Seems easy enough. Thanks.
