We love to learn more about Mr. Fab...

I saw this meme over at the always fabulous Erin's site and I liked it enough to steal it. I like a good meme every once in a while. There's no heavy lifting. Perfect for a Saturday. Plus you get to learn a little about me. As if you needed to know any more.

Hey, if you haven't done the quiz, check this out. So far there is a three way tie for the prize.

My Saturday post is up at Jin's site.

Make it a great weekend!

Sixty-Two Question Meme

1. How old do you wish you were? Hmm…I am interpreting this question as what age would I like to be if I could go back in time. I think I’m happy enough with now. I think I’ll stick with 44.
2. Where were you when 9/11 happened? I was working at the blood bank, having just been promoted to recruitment manager the month before. My assistant came down to tell me about the first plane. Then we heard about the second plane, and shortly after that the donors came pouring in. It was a crazy time to be in blood banking.
3. What do you do when vending machines steal your money? I usually just accept it. It’s not that big a deal.
4. Do you consider yourself kind? Yes, usually. Although I can be a tremendous prick when provoked.
5. If you had to get a tattoo, where and what would it be? If I HAD to get one? It would be to be under pretty dire circumstances for me to give up being able to donate blood for a year, but if I HAD to it would be my wife’s name and I would let her choose where it went.
6. If you could be fluent in any other language what would it be? Spanish, but sadly, I have zero talent for learning languages.
7. Do you know your neighbors? I know them to wave to and have an occasional conversation. We don’t hang out at each other’s house though.
8. What do you consider a vacation? Any day that I am not working.
9. Do you follow your horoscope? No. The only horoscopes I read are the weekly ones in The Onion. Those are hilarious.
10. Would you move for the person you loved? No question about it.
11. Are you touchy feely? Only with my wife, although there are some people I hug at work. They usually initiate it, though.
12. Do you believe that opposites attract? Hmmm…perhaps to a degree, and there are always exceptions, but for the most part I think a relationship stands a better chance of success if the two people have quite a bit in common.
13. Dream job? Commissioner of Major League Baseball.
14. Favorite channels? NESN (gotta watch my Red Sox) and HBO.
15. Favorite place to go on a weekend? To the movies.
16. Showers or Bath? Always a shower. I’m not about to sit there in a tepid pool of my own filth.
17. Do you paint your nails? No. I may tan, but that’s where I draw the line.
18. Do you trust people easily? It depends. I consider myself pretty guarded, but at the same time I have been proven to be quite naïve at times.
19. What are your phobias? I don’t really have anything that I am actually phobic about.
20. Do you want kids? No, my standard answer for twenty years has been that I am too selfish and self absorbed. I like it just the way it is, my wife and our bunnies.
21. Do you keep a handwritten journal? No, I never saw the point of writing something that no one would read.
22. Where would you rather be right now? At home (I’m at work).
23. What makes you feel warm and safe? When my wife hugs me or snuggles up next to me in bed.
24. Heavy or light sleep? Heavy mostly, I think. But it probably varies.
25. Are you paranoid? What do you mean by that? Who told you to ask me that? Are they watching us right now? What are they saying about me? Short answer: yes.
26. Are you impatient? Next question. NEXT QUESTION!
27. Who can you relate to? This was the hardest question for me. I honestly don’t know how to respond. I wonder what that says about me.
28. How do you feel about interracial couples? People are people. Any kind of love is beautiful love. Everybody get over it.
29. Have you been burned by love? No. I have been very fortunate.
30. What’s your life motto? You can’t save everybody, just try not to be living next door to them when they go off.
31. What's your main ringtone on your mobile? Soul Man by Sam and Dave. Always the classics, baby!
32. What were you doing at midnight last night? Sleeping soundly.
33. Who was your last text message from? Wendy.
34. Whose bed did you sleep in last night? What are you implying? I always sleep in my own bed unless I’m traveling. Jeez.
35. What color shirt are you wearing? Black print. I look damn good.
36. Most recent movie you watched? In the theater it was Nacho Libre.
37. Name five things you have on you at all times? My keys, my PDA, my earpiece…that’s it.
38. What color are your bed sheets? White. Off-white if I have an accident during the night.
39. How much cash do you have on you right now? $7.27 in my pocket. My wallet is in the car.
40. What is your favorite part of chicken? The breast.
41. What's your favorite town/city? Hmm…I love Boston, and New York City, and New Orleans. But I will be boring and say right here in Gainesville, Florida.
42. I can’t wait till...I finally apply myself and try to make a living from my writing.
43. Who got you to join MySpace? I don’t belong to MySpace.
44. What did you have for dinner last night? Hot dogs and potato chips. Little league food.
45. How tall are you barefoot? 6’1”. And I have the strength of ten men.
46. Have you ever smoked crack? Not yet, but God willing next week if that guy comes through for me…
47. Do you own a gun? I used to, but I got rid of them all.
48. What do you prefer to drink in the morning? I mostly drink water. If I feel I need it I’ll have a Diet Coke.
49. What is your secret weapon to lure in the opposite sex? A fake cast and a handkerchief soaked in chloroform.
50. Do you have A.D.D.? Certainly not, that is ridicule…I like kitties…Who took my stapler?
51. What time did you wake up today? 4:35 a.m.
52. Current worry? Too many to count.
53. Current hate? This fucking war.
54. Favorite place to be? At the beach with my wife.
55. Where would you like to travel? We may be going to Las Vegas in the fall and L.A. in the spring. I’m looking forward to that. Of course, they’re going to have shoot me full of horse tranquilizers to get me on the plane…
56. Where do you think you'll be in 10 yrs? Hopefully not much will have changed.
57. Last thing you ate? A piece of pound cake.
58. What songs do you sing in the shower? If I sing anything it’s a snippet of whatever song is in my head at the moment.
59. Last person that made you laugh? My wife.
60. Worst injury you've ever had? I hurt my back once years ago and missed about six weeks of work. That’s about it. I’ve never broken anything.
61. Does someone have a crush on you? I doubt it. Why, do you?
62. What is your favorite candy? I don’t eat candy anymore. But in the old days you could not leave me alone with a bag of Smarties.

Lots of people seemed to like this meme - glad it worked for you.

You have to wait a year to give blood after getting a tattoo? Is that because it can take a year to find out that you've caught something? Yech. That's reason enough to never want one!

Every curse word I use, I learned from you. You are my OLDER brother.

I like these questions better than those on most memes, and your answers had me cracking up (especially your secret weapon for luring women). I may have to copy also because I'm too lazy to do much thinking today.
