I Can't Write 55

Ganked from Mitch Berg, from whom I also stole the post title and some answers. :)

1. The phone rings; whom do you want it to be?
Friends or family.
The great thing about caller ID is that I can make sure that's who it is. :D

Yes.

I'm no exception.

No. Frankly, they creep me out.

8. Did you ever go to camp as a kid?
Went to Summer Encampment one year with the Civil Air Patrol and a couple of week-long CAP classes/workshops in other summers. I guess that counts.

9. If a sexy person were pursuing you, but you knew he/she were married what would you do?
Tell them to get lost. I'm keeping what few scruples I have left, thanks.

10. Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you?
Sure. Been there, done that got the divorce papers.

I don't do text messaging.

~6'1"

22. If you could do it over again, start from scratch, would you?
Mitch: Knowing what I know now? I might. Otherwise, nope.
Me too.

23. Any secret admirers?
Apparently some of my high school classmates remember me with more warmth than I probably deserved. Who knew?

24. Have you ever taken pictures in a photo booth?
No.

25. Where is the farthest place you have traveled?
East Berlin. Accidentally. While drunk.

About 10-15 minutes.

30. Can you do splits?
Never been able to, no.

31. What movies do you want to see right now?

40. What do you wear to sleep?

Nope.

44. Do you like liver and onions?
God, no.

Serious people. Funny people seem to have a hard time chilling out and being serious, but the serious people can usually make a funny now and again.
