The inescapable meme

Alright, I give. The combined meme forces of Hutch, Draper, the Foginator, and that weird slothmolo conglomeration (ever wonder why they're slothmolo and not the 3-Toed Fly? Ok, well I have.) finally has dragged me to my screen at 2:00 am to answer these questions for you, gentle reader. My apologies to the original author of these extremely well thought out highly probing questions, I may modify them a bit for my own purposes. Without further ado:


1. What time did you get up this morning? 1st alarm: 4:35. Out of bed: 5:10.

2. Diamonds or Pearls? I prefer spades.

3. What was the last film you saw at the theater? Does the generator rebuilding film we watched in class last week count? We watched it on the big screen in my classroom.

4. What is your favorite TV show? No TV.

6. Your middle name? Jedidiah Isaac Clark

7. What is your favorite cuisine? Gotta go Thai.

8. What foods do you dislike? Wait you mean there are foods I'm not supposed to like?!? I've got a thing against eating bugs though, hoping God works on me on that if He's got that lined out for me overseas down the road.

9. Your favorite Potato chip? I'd much rather have a tortilla chip.

10. What is your favorite CD at the moment? The CD player in the car has been cycling between the Beastie Boys' The Mix-Up (review coming soon sometime), Twin Sister's eponymously titled album, and (as always) Stavesacre's Speakeasy.

24. What laundry detergent do you use? What's it to ya? It keeps my clothes from smelling.

25. Coke or Pepsi? Dr Pepper.

26. Are you a morning person or night owl? Very definitely a night owl. Decided last night that the main difference between the two is that the morning person is in tune enough with their body to go to bed when they ought to.

27. What size shoe do you wear? 9.5 or 10 reaaaaally wide.

28. Favorite animal? I dunno. Mostly ones I can eat.

39. Ever been toilet papering? Once. Went back to the scene of the crime, got caught by the way out by the cops, then drove by one of our other targets while they followed us back to the house. Two clean-up jobs that night by the time it was all said and done. Glad they didn't see the other houses too.

40. Ever loved someone so much it made you cry? Yep.

41. Ever been in a car accident? Yep.

42. Favorite restaurant? Yep. Sorry, I think I fell asleep for a minute there. Kinda like every morning while I'm driving to school. Where were we? Oh yeah -- I think I've gotta go with the Marrakesh. Totally dig Baan Thai too though.

43. Favorite ice cream? Something with little chunks of something else in it. Cookie dough, cheesecake, marionberry pie, toffee, etc. No bubble gum though.

44. Favorite flower? Don't really have one but I like ones that smell good.

The download link can be found here, along with links to several random unreleased Stavesacre files for free (Stavesacre-approved) download. Overall not necessarily the most beginner-friendly material but fun for a fan. I'm enjoying Enemy Ships -- quite different from Stave. For an unreleased album it's surprisingly finished and well-produced.

56. Do you have a hobby? Planes, I guess.

57. Lake, Ocean or River(s)? Yep.

58. How many tattoos do you have? One. $0.25, 1:00 am, Bishop Snuda's Monastery, with my mom and future wife.

59. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Who cares.

62. What materialistic thing would you ask for if you had one wish to make? See 11a above.

63. When was the last time you cried?: Within the last week. Addie does it to me fairly frequently, in a good way.

Did you miss 22, 23, 49. 53. 60, or 61? I didn't think you would. I think by the time the morning rolls around I may miss the last 58 minutes I could have been sleeping. though...

Hey,
I was listening to the recording you made (at least i think it's yours?) on Librivox.com. You know, the Beatrix Potter one? Anyways, I absolutely love Beatrix Potter and I love the way you read the story. So i was wondering if you know, you had the time, if you could read other and more Beatrix Potter stories?

Thanks,
April
by the way, what school do you go to?

N -- just wait until I start describing all the elevons and ruddervators out there. I wish I was kidding... :-)

A -- thanks for the positive feedback! That is my only librivox recording so far but I would love to do some more at some point. I'm attending PCC, Portland Community College.
