A week late and a few hundred dollars short

So goes my life. Enh. Tomorrow’s a new day. But until then, Reader Poll Monday questions!

1. Would you rather eat ONLY Syrian food or ONLY Mexican food for the rest of your life?
Crud, I’d go Indian. But in this case, Mexican.

2. What’s the meanest thing you’ve ever done?
I have to insert the disclaimer that I don’t normally do mean things on my own behalf. I might wish for karma to catch up to someone, but outright being an asshole is a waste of my energy.

However, that said. …

I think it was when I agreed to help someone stalk their ex, I applied for a job at his workplace and under “Have you been convicted of any crimes?” I wrote, “Not under this name.” This before I managed to sneak into his building and leave various STD-related pamphlets under his door. And I’m not even going to talk about how I got his new phone number (back then — I couldn’t give two shits now). I have always been, uh, *resourceful* at finding people’s whereabouts. And dating a cop never hurt anybody. 😉

But anyways, the proverbial “they” say that if you want to fly, you’ve got to soar with the eagles, and that the company you keep reflects you. God, the dumb shit I did back then. It’s amazing how much more enjoyable life is when you’re surrounded by better people — it’s cheesy, but I really do aspire to be the person they think I am.

3. Did you see a movie this weekend? If so, what?
Nah, I’m waiting for “The Devil Wears Prada.”

4. What’s the most recent CD you purchased?
Blue October. I didn’t do the CD but rather a bunch of MP3s from various releases. I can’t explain my obsession with it, but I recommend it. I’d start with “Calling You,” if you’re so inclined.

5. If 12 hot Blogger girls put their heads together and made a calendar, would you buy it?
Probably not.

6. Where did you go on your last vacation?
Uh. … Define “vacation.” Because if not for work trips, I’d never get out of this city. But if I can just not screw up my budget, I am definitely beach-bound later in the season.

7. What defines summer in your world?
Street fairs and festivals. Italian ice. Funnel cake. It used to be grilling on the balcony, but I can’t do that here so the grill sits very lonely right now. Oh, and of course having the A/C turned down to “frostbite” so I can still sleep with my comforter.

8. What time did you get up this morning?
4 a.m. Fucking cats. Life became more enjoyable when it was a “humans-only” zone when I closed the door to the felines.

9. If you could be interviewed on any talk show, which one would you want to be on?
No doubt, “Best Week Ever.”

10. How many hours a day are you actually WORKING at work?
I’d say I work seven or eight hours; it’s just oftentimes spread out over 10 or 12.

  1. Mel :

    I am here to gloat. I will be at “The Devil Wears Prada” premiere this week. Doing volunteer work does have its perks I guess! If you were out here I would invite you to go with my extra ticket. 🙂
