Ok, so we are either very late with the Fives, or very early. What are you, a cop or something? Just get in here and enjoy my neurosis, narcissistic yumminess already!
These are, as almost always, from my editor Majikwah.
1. Would you say you have an accent?
I know I do not have an accent. My diction is spot-fucking- on. However, my family from Buffalo would say they could definitely hear a ‘Western’ accent when we visited.
2. If you could take one technology to a desert island (the obvious satellite phone excluded), what would it be?
My iPod. It’s the only way I could listen to all this stuff. Just checking now, I have 13,953 songs. Assuming the average album has ten songs, that is roughly 1,3o0 albums. Do I listen to it? Not 99.9% of it. I just listen to Dylan, Metallica, and the Dead. That is about it. Also, almost all of my listening these days is podcast based. It’s the last free and pure form of media of any kind.
I really love my iPod, it is about the best thing ever. One day soon I will smarten up and get an iPhone so I don’t have to carry two heavy and expensive devices with me everywhere I go.
3. What is the last activity you bought a ticket for?
interesting question. We hardly ever go out, the wifey and I. We don’t go to movies, I just buy them when they come out on DVD. I mean, something like ‘the Avengers’ should be seen in the theater. But… 99% of movies that come out are just fine on my big screen tv. I got a great stereo and a blu ray player. So, why drive across town, spend $30 ($10 for each ticket, and $10 on treats) when I can wait 3 months and just own it? If I watch at home, I can drink wine and pause the movie to go to the bathroom.
Now, I know that doesn’t answer the question. Last ticket I bought? oooh, wait, I know! It was for the Mega Millions, which I assure you I did not win. Am still a little sore about that one. Turns out you are supposed to quit your job and leave your wife only AFTER winning.
4. Have you ever had a conversation with a seatmate on a plane?
of course, I am a chatty bastard. You know that by now.
5. How long do you wait to cut your hair?
I cut my hair about once a week. I use clippers, and shave it myself. Haven’t paid for a haircut in nearly 20 years. You know when you get your haircut and you get the wash? You know how you lay back in that sink thing and the pretty girl gives you a scalp massage as she washes your hair? I really really miss that.
