I Was Thinking About Something Else

That pretty much sums up my life nowadays. I will be doing something, walking into a room or driving, and I will go askew. Someone will inevitably ask at that same moment, "What are you doing?". Which will confuse me and I can only respond, "Yeah, well...I was thinking about something else".

a small diversion while cogitating on a name change

Shamelessly stolen from Yteews (who likewise stole it from a bunch of other ne'er do wells)

Your name spelled backwards.
Eeknay, Tucitcennoc A. (my friends call me Tuck)

Where were your parents born?
East of the Mississippi

What is the last thing you downloaded onto your computer?

What’s your favorite restaurant?
Tough one. For consistency everywhere I go, I’d have to say Wendy’s. For the overall dining experience it would be the aloof ambience and bold homefries of the Elm Diner, next door to the now defunct Armstrong Rubber Tire Co. factory, hands down. If we were talking just coffee (which is the only beverage considered a meal), well then, Dunkin’ D. without question.

Last time you swam in a pool?
Not a big pool kinda guy. Not yet in this century. Definitely though tail end of the last century sometime.

Have you ever been in a school play?

How many kids do you want?
I never knew this was optional. Man, things you learn too late.

Type of music you dislike most?
I hate country music. Yes, all the words in the last sentence were carefully chosen to provide the correct emphasis.

Yes, however ineffective that turned out to be in the last election when that cheating chuckleheaded mouthbreathing knuckleheaded moron got into office.

Yes. Why? Do you need some?

Ever prank call anybody?

Ever get a parking ticket?
Oh yeah

Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving?
I have always wanted to go sky diving. I have always wanted to see how that scenario would work out with my fear of heights.

Farthest place you ever traveled.
I have been as far away as possible without leaving the globe.

Do you have a garden?
Two. One is known as my kids, and the other one, A Connecticut Yankee.

What’s your favorite comic strip?
In order: The Far Side consistently brings me to tears (I understand why you stopped Gary Larson but damn I miss you) Peanuts, BC, Garfield, and one that is no longer around that was called Animal Crackers.

Do you really know all the words to your national anthem?
yes, and the Star Spangled Banner is no picnic to sing either.
Bath or Shower, morning or night?
I can go either way, it really depends on the mood I’m in by the time Saturday rolls around

Best movie you’ve seen in the past month?
Spiderman 2

Favorite pizza topping?
I hate playing favorites on such an important question with so many possibilities, but, uh, um, oooh so many. Being as vague as possible, I would have to go with any combination of meats with lots of vegetables, oh and pineapple, I love pineapple.

Chips, no prep time involved (yes, I’m really that lazy)

Every man has secrets

Have you ever been in a beauty pageant?
No, but I won a Fredrick’s of Hollywood contest at a party once. Don’t bother to ask.

Orange Juice or apple?
Used to love OJ until about seven years ago when I had a breakfast bar and a glass of OJ that I later determined was bad because within 15 minutes of consumption I ralphed everything I had previously consumed since age 5 (or it felt like it). So since then I don’t eat breakfast bars (the unfortunate innocent, yet marked for life) or drink OJ. I really like apple juice.

Wife and some friends at a place I had never been before called Café Reutier. I had the trout (it was a first for me I found it quite tasty)and a pleasant wheat ale.
