This from Mac Tonnies via Paul Kimball. The Me A-Z Meme...
Accent: American midwest. I took Speech and Debate in part to lose my "North Dallas drawl".
Booze: Very sparingly. I'll generally get a Long Island Tea and slug it down...that's all for the night.
Chore I Hate: Anything financial or dealing with banks.
Dog or Cat: Cats...intelligent, independent, indifferent.
Essential Electronics: My kick-ass PC, my big-ass TV, and my bad-ass stereo...in that order.
Favorite Cologne: Patchouli oil or Obsession, depending on whether I'm wearing a Dashiki or a button-up shirt.
Gold or Silver: Gold
Hometown: Dallas, Texas
Insomnia: Sure. Sleep is over-rated. Don't buy into the pro-sleep hype.
Job Title: Ex-IT consultant, currently photographer.
Kids: One rather cool 17 year old son. Plays sick guitar.
Living arrangements: Living...in the house my wife and I bought when we were married...with my now ex-wife and 17 year old son..
Most admirable traits: Memory for details (warehouse of useless information); helpful; vocabulary.
Not going to cop to: an interest in "robot porn".
Overnight hospital stays: Never once.
Phobias: Heights until I went para-sailing...that was the big one and it's gone now. Not fond of roller coasters or other amusement park death-traps. LOL
Quote: I'm talking and I can't shut up.
Religion: Raised Baptist; cured in college.
Siblings: I have a half-brother.
Time I wake up: 6AM unless I can claim a good reason to sleep in.
Unusual talent or skill: I play the doumbek (a middle-eastern goblet drum). I can also recite the complete script of Firesign Theater's "Nick Danger: Third Eye" in the Adventure they call "Cut 'em off at the Past", complete with character voices...even Nancy.
Vegetable I love: I think artichokes (and garlic) were left behind by the Gods themselves.
Worst habit: Cigarette smoking and procrastination, if quitting cigarette smoking counts.
X-rays: My teeth. Oh, and I once had a tiny camera on a flexible tube shoved up my nose. I have the videotape...compelling set design, but the acting is rather flat.
Yummy foods I make: Broiled marinated chicken breasts with roasted garlic and almond spinach; donuts; pancakes; smoothies; and of course sirloin steak on the grill.
Zodiac sign: Cancer.
Wow...I feel somehow cleansed. Confession good for the soul, indeed. LOL
Peace out, y'all.
Thanks for the comment. It's nice to be back...
Wish there was more intrigue in the field to "commentate" on, but I suppose we should be careful what we wish for...
