Dave!Kill me. Kill me now.

I am dealing with a raging migraine headache just now, and that's no fun to blog about. Instead I think I'll just steal The Stupid Evil Bastard Meme I just saw over at Erik's blog.

Prepare yourself...

  • What time did you get up this morning? 5:15am.
  • How do you like your steak? Absent. As a vegetarian, I don't eat steak.
  • What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Black Swan... I was not impressed.
  • What is your favorite TV show? Raising Hope... I haven't liked a show this much since Veronica Mars and Wonderfalls, which is saying quite a lot.
  • If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Edinburgh, Scotland.
  • What did you have for breakfast? Two slices of sourdough toast with seedless strawberry jam. Like this.
  • What is your favorite cuisine? Italian. And call me a snobby, elitist bastard, but I mean real Italian... from Italy... and not the typical Americanized Italian we usually get over here.
  • What foods do you dislike? Other than meat, which I don't eat, I'm allergic to mushrooms in anything but small quantities and don't care much for broccoli or cauliflower.
  • Favorite place to Eat? Ristorante Alfredo alla Scrofa in Rome, Italy. I have traveled to Rome just so I can eat there.
  • Favorite salad dressing? Italian if I'm eating Italian, Thousand Island if I'm eating Mexican, Ranch if it's a good Ranch, otherwise French.
  • What kind of vehicle do you drive? A 1999 Saturn SC-2. I bought it because I wanted to support the American auto industry after my previous car was totaled by the railroad. It was purchased sight-unseen over the internet and have hated it since the day I took ownership. I would have gladly returned the piece of shit during the 30-day no-penalty return period, but I was too busy traveling at the time, and lived three hours away from the dealership. It turns wider than a semi truck. It has a gap between sun visors. The mirror adjusters are STUPID. It's uncomfortable for both drivers and passengers. No Saturn dealership could ever fix it properly either in or out of warranty. I could go on and on and on.
  • What are your favorite clothes? Jeans and a Hard Rock Cafe T-shirt.
  • Where would you visit if you had the chance? In order... India. Australia. Peru. Cambodia. Antarctica.
  • Cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full? 1966-1982: half-full. 1983-1987: half-empty. 1988-2011: half-full. Though, to be honest, it has been very, very hard to be a "half-full" guy over the past decade or so given the horrible political climate in this fucked-up country I live in.
  • Where would you want to retire? Right now? Maui.
  • Favorite time of day? Sunset.
  • Where were you born? Doctor's Hospital in San Diego, California. And no, that's not a set on a soap opera.
  • What is your favorite sport to watch? Hockey. Specifically, Chicago Blackhawks or Milwaukee Admirals hockey.
  • Who do you think will never call you again? Anybody with the patience to suffer through this meme.
  • Person you expect to call you next? My sister.
  • Who are you most curious about their responses to stealing? Stealing what? Actually, Bad Robert is who I am most curious about their response to anything. The guy is insane. I mean really insane.
  • Bird watcher? Not really. Though I have seen some really cool birds in various zoos I've visited around the world.
  • Are you a morning person or a night person? Absolutely a night person.
  • Do you have any pets? No. I'd like to have a pet but, given how much I travel, that would be pretty irresponsible.
  • Any new and exciting news you'd like to share? Yes. Unfortunately, I can't share it right now.
  • What did you want to be when you were little? At one time or another during childhood I wanted to be a fireman, airline pilot, doctor, and a chef. I ended up being a graphic designer, so I guess none of my career dreams came true. Now I want to be an astronaut when I grow up.
  • What is your best childhood memory? I had a pretty idyllic childhood, so it would be difficult to pick just one. Probably a Christmas morning or a dinner at my grandparents house or something like that.
  • Are you a cat or dog person? I like both, actually. I would love to have either if I was around long enough to care for one.
  • Are you married? Nope. I came very, very close once. Given the kind of person she ended up, I am thankful every single day it never happened.
  • Always wear your seat belt? Yes. It's the law, and I don't want to pay a $101 fine.
  • Been in a car accident? Yes. I was stopped at a stoplight, so obviously it wasn't my fault.
  • Any pet peeves? People who clip their fingernails in public and people who smack their gum. My greatest nightmare is to be eating at a restaurant and have somebody at a neighboring table smacking gum while clipping their fingernails as I try to eat. =shudder=
  • Favorite Pizza Toppings? Cheese!
  • Favorite Flower? California Poppy or Crocuses.
  • Favorite ice cream? Chocolate-Almond. Though I'd rather have Straciatella gelato more than any ice cream on earth.
  • Favorite fast food restaurant? Johnny Rockets.
  • How many times did you fail your driver's test? Once.
  • Who did you get your last email from? A friend from Wisconsin.
  • Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? Orbitz. Online stores count, don't they?
  • Do anything spontaneous lately? An upcoming trip to Vegas for my sister's birthday was pretty spontaneous. We knew we wanted to do something, but Vegas kind of came out of nowhere.
  • Like your job? Yes. Though there are things around my job that I don't particularly care for.
  • Broccoli? Not really.
  • What was your favorite vacation? I have been to so many amazing places that it's almost impossible to choose. My standard answer for this is usually "The last one I took." In this case, it would be a cruise around the Mediterranean that started in Barcelona, Spain.
  • Last person you went out to dinner with? Ummm... Christmas dinner at grandma's, perhaps? I don't go out to eat much when I'm home.
  • What are you listening to right now? I have no idea. The television is on for background noise... it looks like a movie with Dick Van Dyke.
  • What is your favorite color? Periwinkle Blue.
  • How many tattoos do you have? Zero. That will hopefully change one day.
  • How many times have you tagged someone to do a meme? I'd like to say ZERO, but I'm sure I tagged one or two people in my early blogging days... before I realized it's pure evil to do so.
  • What time did you finish this meme? 9:00pm on the dot.
  • Coffee Drinker? GACK! No. I have tried many time to try and drink coffee. I just can't do it. I like the smell of it, but can't stand the taste.

Oddly enough, this "Stupid Evil Bastard Meme" seems to have evolved from another meme that I did six years ago. Some of the questions are the same. Many are different. I guess over the years people just changed a question here or there that they didn't like, and this is where we are now. I wonder what it will look like six years from now when it makes the rounds again?

    Oh, man – I love periwinkle!
    (I forgot all the other stuff I was going to comment on!)
    Hope your poor head feels better.

    • Dave2 says:

      Thanks to the miracle of modern pharmaceuticals, I’m all good, thanks! Periwinkle is an amazing color. Not quite blue… not quite purple… I love it, which is why it’s splashed all over this blog!

  2. Lisa says:

    My favorite gelato flavor was always Zuppa Inglese (not sure about the spelling). It is so much creamier than ice cream! The only place I found it here was at the Bellaggio in Vegas and it was pretty darn close.

  3. Avitable says:

    And now I have something to post for tomorrow!

    Did you buy the exact same model of car as the one you had when you did the meme 6 years ago, except a model that’s a year older?

    • Dave2 says:

      Nope, same car. Did I get the year wrong last time? I fully admit I am not into cars at all, and am surprised I even know the brand and model I drive… let alone the year! I’m pretty sure it’s either a 2000 model bought in 1999 or a 1999 model bought in 1998. How can you tell?

      • Avitable says:

        The only way I know how to know is that it says it somewhere on my title.

        • Dave2 says:

          Hmmm… I’m sure that’s around here somewhere! It would be a heck of a lot easier to figure these things out if the YEAR of the car matched the YEAR you bought it. But they always seem to be a year ahead for some reason. I guess they want people to feel that they’re buying “newer than new” or don’t want people the following year to think they’re getting last year’s model? I dunno.

  4. Poppy says:

    Weird, I feel like I know so much about you now.

    Don’t worry, I’ll forget in 5 minutes. I like surprises.

  5. I think you’re the first person I’ve known besides myself who is allergic to mushrooms. It took me many horribly ill days in college to narrow down what was making me so deathly sick.

    And I am soooooo not putting an Ophiuchus on your forehead.

    • Dave2 says:

      If the mushrooms are cooked and sparse… like in a sauce or something… I’ll live. May end up with a sore throat, but no real damage done. If, however, I were to sit down and eat a salad covered in raw mushrooms, my throat will close up pretty bad. Not a fun experience.

  6. Maggie says:

    Just out of curiosity, why didn’t you mention you had a sister in the first meme?
