More than you ever wanted to know about me, I'm sure.
Do you like blue cheese? In salad-dressing form, yes. In cheese-form, I could take it or leave it.
Have you ever smoked? Cigarettes, you mean? A total of two puffs, both while drunk, and not in the past ten years. I didn't exactly go to Flavour Country, and I was never in danger of being Alive With Pleasure.
Do you own a gun? No.
What flavor of Kool Aid is your favorite? I've always been partial to orange.
Do you get nervous before dentist appointments? Not at all. Bill's great.
What do you think of hot dogs? Ain't nothin' like a little Toronto Streetcock... ketchup, honey mustard, banana peppers, and fake bacon bits.
Favorite Christmas movie? National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
Favorite thing to drink in the morning? Coffee. Either 2 sugar/1 cream or 1 sugar/black.
Can you do push ups? A few.
What's your favorite piece of jewelry? I don't wear jewelry of any kind, except if I'm wearing a suit — then I might wear the fancy watch I got for being Best Man at my brother's wedding.
Favorite hobby? All things baseball — playing, reading about it, watching it, going to Florida for spring training.
Do you have ADD? I can focus for extremely long periods of time, so no.
What's one trait you hate about yourself? I'm an inconsistent perfectionist.
Middle name? You are never, ever squeezing this out of me.
Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment.
1. I really like Steely Dan's "Home At Last".
2. Why has my hot sauce turned colour? I hope it's still good.
3. I'm very busy at work these days.
Name 3 drinks you regularly drink. Water, Coffee, Diet Pepsi.
Current worry? I hope we don't go out on strike.
Current hate right now? A tie: celebrities and Jesus-freak colleagues.
Favorite place to be? Baseball game, Detroit, sunny day, armed with peanuts and beer.
How did you bring in the new year? With a very tired Hubert and a very delicious plate of nachos at a pub in Ottawa, after seeing one of the best hockey games in World Juniors history (Canada/US).
Where would you like to go? It pains me to say this, but... somewhere warm.
Name three people who will complete this. I don't really care.
Do you own slippers? No, they're for little kids, my mom, and old people.
What shirt are you wearing? I'm wearing a green t-shirt with a couple of stripes, and an off-white hoodie.
Do you like sleeping on satin sheets? I can't say, as I never have before.
Can you whistle? Quite well, yes.
Favorite color? Blue.
Would you be a pirate? Nah, I don't think I'm that malicious.
What songs do you sing in the shower? I don't really want to torture my neighbours in that way, and my place isn't that soundproof. I keep my singing to the car... even at that, though, I don't usually remember too many words of songs.
Favorite girl's name: I've always been partial to Olivia.
Favorite boy's name: I've always been partial to Avery. (I realize that name could go to either gender, but it's been in the back of my mind for a decade.)
What's in your pocket right now? Absolutely nothing.
Last thing that made you laugh? I actually have no idea, which is very weird.
What vehicle do you drive? When my Rolls convertible is in the shop, a Pontiac G5.
Worst injury you've ever had? Nasty ankle-twist, complete with crunching sounds (3 times).
Do you love where you live? I like my apartment, but you already know about my downstairs neighbour.
How many TVs do you have in your house? One, but I have another one sitting around. Does anyone want a 21" CRT TV? Inquire within.
Who is your loudest friend? Hubert, especially when his laughs turn into coughing fits, which they almost always do.
Do you have any pets? I have a houseplant named Sparky.
Does someone have a crush on you? I doubt it.
Your favourite book? Fiction, probably something by Kurt Vonnegut. Nonfiction is a tough one, but Matt Taibbi's stuff is always damn entertaining.
Do you collect anything? Books and CDs are about it.
Favorite Sports Team? If you have to ask, you don't know me too well.
What song do you want played at your funeral? "Lay It On The Line" by Triumph, at a very high volume.
