Today I have played video games for the first time in what feels like a decade, so let’s go further back and do an online survey! #oldschool #livejournal #wine
Fill in the blanks and tag six people. I don’t know six people on tumblr and beethousand already tagged me, and so tag yourselves, kindly!
Birthday: October 1, 1983
Favorite color: blue
Lucky number: I guess 5, George Brett’s number. My answer when I was a kid.
Height: 6’0 1/2 (I thought I was 6’1” for the longest. I’m shrinking.)
Talents: Juggling. Microsoft Word.
Last dream you remember: I genuinely can’t remember. I’m blanking.
Can you juggle: snap, YES. Taught myself when I was in junior high because I thought it’d make me cool. Did it? I think the results speak for themselves. [It didn’t.]
Art/sports/both: I like disseminating art, and I like experiencing sports and all its myriad failures.
Do you like writing: Sure.
Do you like dancing: When I’m in the zone.
Do you like singing: Not really. When I’m in even more of the zone. A more centrally located zone.
Dream vacation: a hotel with nice restaurants nearby and some time off to read or work a bit. That’s genuinely it. And a beach is nearby.
Dream guy/gal: beethousand
Dream wedding: our wedding: we danced to “Just Like Honey” by The Jesus & Mary Chain and gave out free used books, and it was potluck!
Dream pet: Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald “Franny” Acosta-Fox
Dream job: My exact job is my dream job. I guess I’d add a book budget. My dream job is my current job plus $10,000 extra dollars for the classroom per year.
Favorite song: Maaannn… If pressed… and I guess you’re pressing me, tumblr… “Atmosphere” by Joy Division. Also “Love Will Tear Us Apart” is perfect. And most of the Kraftwerk albums.
Least favorite song: that Kid Rock song from that commercial… “I was booorn freeee”
Least favorite album: the album on which said Kid Rock song exists.
Least favorite artist: I really, really hate new phony R&B Soul Mo-Town emulators. Duffy, Adele, Dido, Joss Stone, … all of them come to mind. Rip off music all you want but ripping off Mo-Town seems the most like sacrilege. [Amy Winehouse felt a little more honest, though, she’s excluded from this.]
Hair colour: never cared about this.
Eye colour: nor this.
Taller/shorter: nor this.
Biggest turn-off: any sort of display of genuine meanness.
Biggest turn-on: kindness, compassion, concern for others.
