Stalling for time

I'm blatantly stealing this from Jewels, while I stall for time on three different posts: a wedding post, a monkey post and the promised birthday post.

Yeah, I'm battling the insomnia. Fortunately, the headaches went away. Just in time to hit the doctor's office.

At least I got my taxes done.

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
My great-grandfathers, Eric for Eleazar (who, it turns out, was apparently really named Leazar) and Martin for Maxwell.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
The other day. Thanks, headache.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING
No. Though I think most people who see it think it's adequate for the job.

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE LUNCH MEAT?
All of the above.

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
Not yet.

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Maybe. On one hand, I'm kinda freakin' cool. On the other hand, I'm kinda an asshole.

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
"No," he says drolly.

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE TONSILS
Yup. No wisdom teeth. Insert own joke here.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
Nope. Afraid of heights. Or, more specifically, falling from same. Or, even more specifically, landing with a squish after falling from same.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CEREAL?
Special K. Don't freakin' laugh.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM Off?
No.

12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
Strong enough. Depending on the circumstances.

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ICE CREAM?
Coffee Heath Bar Crunch. First among many.

14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
I'm not really that observant, especially for a journalist. So I'm going with either weaponry, or boobs.

15. RED OR PINK?
Red. The blood of angry men.

16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVOURITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
Right now, I'm going with the 20 spare pounds hanging over my most favorite thing about myself.

17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST
Let me put it this way: I'll feel a twinge of jealousy when Marisa's grandmother and Nana walk down the aisle in the procession.

18. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO SEND THIS BACK TO YOU?
Nah. Send it to Jewels. This was her fault, anyway. Plus, her darling daughter's sick, so she might need the entertainment.

19. WHAT COLOUR PANTS AND SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
Grey shirt. And, actually, I can finally, truthfully, publicly say... I'm not wearing any pants.

20. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
Tiramisu.

21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
I think it's the heat coming through the baseboard system. Or Norton the Dog snoring.

22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
Purple!

23. FAVOURITE SMELLS?
Fresh baking bread. Good food. Marisa's hair.

24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
I'm going with the Jack Adams commissioner. But I'm not really sure.

25. DO YOU LIKE THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU?
Sure. Otherwise I wouldn't buy her jewelry.

26. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
Hockey. Baseball. Football. Women's tennis. Soccer. Probably in that order. Unless the Raiders are playing.

27. HAIR COLOUR ?
Black. With a couple of gray hairs, which I name after their cause. (This one's Norton, after the dog; that one's Kevin, my buddy and new boss...)

28. EYE COLOUR?
Brown. Slightly bloodshot.

29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
Only when playing sports.

30. Your favorite food?
Pizza. Then Buffalo wings. Then cheesesteaks. Then M's cooking, and my Mom's. The rest is negotiable.

31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?
Duh...

32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
"Highwaymen"via Netflix.

34. SUMMER OR WINTER?
Of the two, winter. But I like fall best. Hockey's starting, football's in full swing, the pennant races are on. Plus the leaves are pretty and it's not too hot or too cold.

35. HUGS OR KISSES?
Depends who's giving.

36. FAVOURITE DESSERT?
Hot fudge sundaes. Hold the nuts, unless they're peanuts.

37. MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND?
Marisa.

38. LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND ?
Stewie, unless he does it just to show me up.

39. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
Just finished "The GM: The Inside Story of a Dream Job and the Nightmares that Go with It"and"King of Russia: A Year in the Russian Super League,"plus the latest trade PB of "Powers." About to re-read Matthew Reilly's "7 Deadly Wonders" in order to start the sequel, "The 6 Sacred Stones."

40. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?
It's a laptop. No mouse.

41. WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON T. V. LAST NIGHT?
The season finale of "American Gladiators."

42. FAVOURITE SOUND
That nighttime quiet when we're nestled in bed. Not quite quiet. But so nicely silent. You know what I mean.

43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
Of the two, the Stones. M would pick the Beatles, no doubt. I'm indifferent, really.

44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
Saigon, Vietnam.

45. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
Maybe. Maybe not.

46. WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
Saigon, Vietnam.

47. WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK?
M's, I guess. Maybe Jin's.
