Getting to know you...

Y'ever take one of those online email surveys that you're s'pposed to send to eight friends and get their responses, with the intended purpose that you get to know them better? It's dangerous to give me one of those. Here's one I filled out recently, sent by my sister.

2 What was the last film you saw at the cinema? There was a film of soap scum in the restroom just before I left

4. What did you have for breakfast? Haven't had any yet. Coffee, almost certainly.

16. Where would you want to retire? If I need to retire, I go to the garage and say, "Give me new tires."

18. Favorite sport to watch? Japanese game shows
19. Who do you least expect to send this back? The cast of Sesame Street

27. Favorite candy bar? The Rooster & Stump on 18th Ave serves some great candy.
28. What is your best childhood memory? One family vacation, when we were driving through Yellowstone, and my sister had to go to the bathroom every 10 minutes. THAT was funny. Every time we got to the top of a hill, "Is there a bathroom coming up soon?"
29. What are the different jobs you have had in your life? Halloween costume model, umbrella stand, political cartoon
30. What color underwear are you wearing? I don't think they would fit you--and they definitely wouldn't go with what you're wearing!

49. Who are you most curious about their responses to this questionnaire? My own. I find them very curious indeed!
50. What are you listening to right now? The sloshing of gray matter in my head. It's a small, gentle sound.

53. How many tattoos do you have? You mean, on myself?

55. How many people are you sending this email to? wallaby
56. Time finished? 6:48 a.m.

The hat? I can't explain the hat. Maybe I was held at gunpoint by Shriners and forced to wear it.
