I guess there's a reason Meme has two me's in it. She Says actually sent me an email meme. Email! That's spam, young lady. It should land you in the same bucket on my computer as wang enlargement, cheap viagara, Nigerian money scams, and Me So Horny 4U, if it weren't that I'd added you to the exception list long ago. Fine...I'm moving your meme online. I don't do chain letters. Kyle, I tag you in Facebook. Andrew, you too. And LissyJo and Pooteewheet and Larry. As Roma Downey would say, you've been touched by a meme.

1. What is your occupation right now? Technology Manager (specifically, Technology Manager, Migration
2. What color are your socks right now? Tan with some dark brown diamonds
3. What are you listening to right now? Pooteewheet listening to raunchy comedy on our free Showtime

4. What was the last thing that you ate? Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale. Once again, beer is food.
5. Can you drive a stick shift? That's all we own. Better gas mileage, eh.
6. Last person you spoke to on the phone? I'm going to assume this includes Skype because Skype is kewl - Erik the Swede.
7. Do you like the person who sent this to you? I traveled across the country to meet her, so yah.
8. How old are you today? As old as She Says...almost.
9. What is your favorite sport to watch on TV? Bicycling.

10. What is your favorite drink? I drink more coffee than anything else, but my favorite drink is beer, followed closely by Scotch, followed closely by Bourbon (I'm a George Thorogood song).
11. Have you ever dyed your hair? Hell no. I saw what my brother looked like when he dyed/bleached his blonde. That's a bad look for the men in my family. I'm peppered with gray except where it's completely disappearing.
12. Favorite food? I may have answered something else recently, but at the moment sushi comes to mind.
13. What is the last movie you watched ? Man on Wire

14. Favorite day of the year? Eryn's Birthday

15. How do you vent anger? Ooo...tough one. Could be mopey, but I did that more in the past (though not exclusively). Exercise (on the bicycle, in case someone was wondering if I was talking about sex), perhaps. At least that's always how I want to diffuse it.
16. What was your favorite toy as a child? ATV 6 wheeled vehicle? Maybe my scooter? The one thing I still have is my kangaroo skin covered koala bear.
17. What is your favorite season? Fall, before it gets too cold to ride bicycle.
18. Cherries or Blueberries? Absolutely blueberries.
19. Do you want your friends to e-mail you back? No. That's why I put this on the blog. But they may put this on their Facebook account and change the question to "Do you want your friends to tag you back".
20. Who is the most likely to respond? Pooteewheet, if she ever reads my blog.
21. Who is least likely to respond? My brother. He never reads my blog.
22. Living arrangements? Second tier suburb, two cats, several fish, family of three with almost 1000' square feet each (too much!).
23. When was the last time you cried? When my project developed a third major problem? No...I don't cry over spilt projects. Man on Wire made me sad because he has so much more passion than I have for anything.
24. What is on the floor of your closet? Poker chips. Shoes. Some book on positions we don't use that needs to go away before Eryn finds it. Wrapping paper. Writing helper we use to set the laptop on to watch videos so it doesn't sit on the comforter which blocks the air intake.
25. Who is the friend you have had the longest that you are sending to? Kyle - we've been friends a long time.26. What did you do last night? Read documentation on ADABAS systems.
27. What are you most afraid of? Not being able to bike. I once, shortly after my first eye was zapped for lasik, very afraid of blindness. I have a slightly irrational (up for debate) fear of sharks.
28. Plain, cheese, or spicy hamburger? I prefer spicy, but it's usually not an option.
29. Favorite dog breed? Corgi, although I've never owned one.
30. Favorite day of the week? The busiest day of my work work that's not busy because of meetings, but which leaves me time for lots of fun with Eryn and Jen.
31. How many states have you lived in? OR, NY, CA, MT, ND, MN...I think. So 6.32. Diamonds or pearls? She Says is wrong. This is equally geared toward men. Men prefer pearls on their women.
33. What is your favorite flower? I like roses.

34. If you could change one major decision in your life, what would you change? This is a tough one. I would like to see what it would have been like to go to Wales and become a PhD in British History. That would have precluded my wife and daughter. So I guess I wouldn't take it back - I'm just interested in what it would have been like. It hink I would have decided to spend more time with my grandparents - the ones who have passed on. I knew them, but not as well as I wish I had.

Does the fact that you have free Showtime mean you switched to Dish with our recommend a friend coupon? Just wondering if I should be looking for my $$.... :-)
