13. Where does your grandma live?
Ashville and Dirtburg respectively.

14. Are you an angry drunk?
Angry drunks are the worst. No wait. Bitchy drunks are the worst. I’m a happy drunk. 
15. Do you prefer pen or pencil?
Pencil. Always pencil. If I have a sharpener nearby, it has to be the old yellow kind, but without the yellow. The old non-yellow yellow kind. 

16. Are you wearing any deodorant?
Let me check. Not enough clearly.

17. Ever been in an earthquake?
Yeah, a couple.

18. Is your birthday this month?
No

19. Do guys suck?
Guys suck. No wait, sweeping generalizations of genders is wrong. That’s why man-bashing feminists are evil. Androgynism is the way to go.

20. Are you afraid of the dentist?
He always charges too much.

21. Do you know exactly what car you want?
A modded hybrid with a custom battery bank, modified hybrid algorithms and a plug to plug it in at night.

Like you wouldn’t believe. I have a thermal shipping label printer coming soon.

23. Ever seen Boy Meets World?
Yes.

24. Own a locket?
No.

25. Did you share a locker in high school?
I didn’t use lockers. If it didn’t fit in my bag, I didn’t need it.

26. Ever dissected anything in high school science class?
Every biology class we were told we’d have to disect something. A worm, a mouse, a shark, a frog, a fetal pig… every year we never got to.

27. Ever had a referral?
Are we talking like the GP sending you to a specialist? Then yes. Are we talking word of mouth advertizing? Yes again.

28. Still play with legos?
I wish. Those things are fucking expensive. I would if I had them.

29. Do you know when Easter is?
The first Sunday after the first full moon of spring or something. He is Risen… and he wants BRAAAAAIIIIIIINS!!!

30. Last time you wrote a note?
On the grease-board yesterday.

31. Ever been on a cruise?
Cruise ships are bad for the environment and seem about as fun as staying in a hotel that you can’t leave.

32. Ever gotten pregnant by someone on a cruise?
What the fuck?

33. Dyed your hair?
Oh yeah.

34. Do you like your handwriting?
To sloppy.

35. Do you eat?
I’ll assume that means vagina. Mmmm… vagina.

36. Are you wearing lotion?
No

37. Last time you talked on the phone?
Robin from Lagunitas Brewing wanted me to pick up 2 iMacs, a CPU and 2 monitors (one of which was actually a TV/VCR Combo.)

38. Do you know Victorias secret?
Oh yeah. The secret is she changes the patterns on her 5 for $20 panties every month so girls want more of them.

Too nice for my own good.

40. Ever been in love?
Too in love for my own good.

41. What were you last Halloween?
Dead kitty.

42. Ever met a midget?
I have, but I’ve always wanted one in my posse.

Usually it involves carving a zit off accidently.

Tropical fish, crawdads.

49. How long did this take you?
Go to hell, poll creator.

Yet Another MySpace Survey

04.07.2006

1. WOULD YOU GET BACK WITH YOUR EX IF YOU COULD?
All my ex’s were terrible to me, or in the case of Rema, I was terrible to her. I’m not sure that would be healthy. But a quick roll in the hay some afternoon with no expectations for later, I’d be more than happy with for just about any ex. 

2. WHAT KIND OF SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
I am not wearing a shirt. I’m sitting in the kitchen in my boxers, trying to get motivated to get shit done today. 

3. HAVE YOU MADE OUT WITH ANYONE ON YOUR FRIEND’S LIST?
Alia. I was going to say Amber and Rema, but they haven’t added me as friends, because they have lives and never check Myspace. The night is still young, who says I won’t have made out with half my list by the time this question gets asked again. (Will, Tyrone… I’m looking at you.)
4. DO YOU HAVE “A THING” FOR ANYONE ON YOUR TOP 8?
Well, I am with my number one person, but other than her, yes and that makes me a bad person. 
5. HOW MANY PEOPLE ON YOUR LIST DO YOU KNOW IN REAL LIFE?
41 out of 55 if you count cats and stores.
7. HOW MANY KIDS DO YOU WANT TO HAVE?
I always think 2 or 3 is a nice number, then a friend will bring their obnoxious children over, or there will be some obnoxious kid at the DMV and I’m worried that I couldn’t love something that pisses me off as much as obnoxious, dumb, loud children do. If it could be guaranteed that I’d get quiet, nerdy, book-smart children, I would like 3 in some combination of the 2 sexes.

8. DO YOU HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH BOTH YOUR PARENTS?
Not really.
9. DO YOU MAKE OVER 40K A YEAR?
If you’re talking Canadian dollars, no. Well, last year I was, but not this year. Now if you’re talking Yen, I believe I making about that right now, yes.
11. WHAT NAME WOULD YOU WANT TO HAVE BESIDES THE ONE YOU HAVE?
Cory “Sparky” Sparks, all night radio DJ and voice actor.
12. WOULD YOU EVER MAKE OUT WITH SOMEONE OF THE SAME SEX?
Short answer: Probably not. Guys are mostly icky and girls are mostly nice.
Long answer: I don’t know. I haven’t met a man that wasn’t too gross or unattractive to make out with, but that doesn’t mean I should shut out 47% of the potential love pool just becaue we both have penises. That said, I’d hate to give up boobies, those ticklish spots above the hips,  and orgasms from oral sex that don’t involve getting shot in the eye. I’m probably just too girl-crazy to be an effective bisexual.
If money was involved, all bets are off. I’ll make out with who-ever for however long for enough money.13. WHAT IS YOUR MOTHER’S NAME?
Kathryn A. (Gorman) Dorrough
14. WHAT DID YOU DO FOR YOUR LAST BDAY?
Dinner, presents, hung out with Alia.
15. WHAT’S YOUR MAIN RINGTONE ON YOUR PHONE?
An mp3 file of a phone ringing.
16. WHAT TIME DID YOU WAKE UP?
Noon
17.WHAT WERE YOU DOING AT MIDNIGHT TWO NIGHTS AGO?
Homework

18. HOW MANY EX’S ARE ON YOUR FRIENDS LIST?
None.

19. DO YOU LIKE HAVING YOUR HAIR PULLED?
Who the fuck likes having thier hair pulled?

22. NAME SOMETHING YOU CAN’T WAIT TO DO.
Have sex with someone who wants to have sex.

23. LAST TIME YOU SAW YOUR MOM?
Last month.

24. DO YOU GET ALONG WITH YOUR SIBLINGS?
I try to avoid my sibblings because they remember hating me as a child so they feel they can be judgemental assholes now that I’m an adult.

25. WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WISH YOU COULD CHANGE ABOUT YOURSELF?
I wish that for all my desires to help people, that just once I could actually help someone.

26. IF YOU HAD $250,000…HOW WOULD YOU SPEND IT?
Invest it in a brick and mortar computer recycling and used computer parts center and expand my free computers for local schools and non-profits program.

7. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT YOUR CURRENT JOB?
My current job is a start-up computer recycling company that I run out of my house and on Ebay. When people as where I work, I point to the vynil lettering on the back window of my car and say “I work at the sign in the back of my car.”

HAVE YOU EVER TALKED TO TOM?
There is no Tom. There is only an evil News Empire that pretends Tom is real so they can blame him and appologize on his behalf when myspace.com fucks up.

29. LAST PERSON YOU CALLED?
Some recycling customer about a monitor.

30. LAST THING YOU ATE?
Oatmea

l31. WHATS YOUR FAVORITE MONTH?
June
32. YOUR LEAST FAVORITE MONTH?
March. Nothing good happens in March.
33. WHAT’S THE LAST PIECE OF CLOTHING YOU BORROWED FROM ANYONE?
I used Richard’s shoes to go outside a few weeks ago. I used Lindsay’s panties as a hat when she wasn’t home. That Ichigo looks cute in a panty hat. (Am I kidding?)

34. WHO IS GETTING ON YOUR NERVES RIGHT NOW?
People who don’t recycle their computers with me.

35. MOST VISITED WEBPAGE?
Tie between TiVoCommunity, Myspace.com and TCrebel.com. I check them every time I’m online.

36. LAST PERSON YOU TEXT MESSAGED?
A dime for something I could say with words out loud for free? Fuck you.
37. LAST PERSON THAT MADE YOU SAD?
Alia makes me sad all the time.
38. WOULD YOU TAKE A BULLET FOR YOUR BEST FRIEND?
Well, Coor’s Light is a little gross, but if you’re my friend, I suppose I’d take it.
39. FAVORITE TYPE OF DRINK?
Liquers
40. FAVORITE FOOD?
Sushi

41. FAVORITE DESSERT?
Boston Creme Pie

42. HAVE YOU BEEN TO EUROPE?
Ew… europe.

44. IF SOMEONE YOU HATED DIED, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
“Go to the viewing, defile their corpse, rape their mother, and possibly eat all of the food at their wake.”
I was going to put my own answer, but Lindsay’s answer fit me perfectly.

45. DO YOU OWN A CAMERA PHONE?
Who gives a shit about that? What a stupid last question. What the hell is wrong with these survey writers? (Yes.)

 

Don’t Tag too Hard, I’m Fragile.

03.31.2006

The first player of this game starts with the “6 weird things/habits about yourself”.  (Lindsay got me.)

People who get tagged need to write a blog entry of their 6 weird habits/things, as well as state the rules clearly.

At the end, choose the 6 people to be tagged and list their names.

Don’t forget to leave a comment that tells them they’ve been tagged in their comments section and remind them to read your blog entry so they can continue the game.

Also, you cannot tag the person who tagged you!

Stuff about me:
1. Some problem with my brain causes me to have trouble with left and right. I don’t know if it has to do with being born left handed and forced right by my family (I can’t prove that, but there’s some evidence) or if it’s a learning disablility or if I’m just kind of dumb. It’s frustrating to me, but I’m sure it’s way more frustrating to the people who need to know whether they’re going left or right in a split-second decision and miss the turn while I think about it. When driving, or sometimes even doing other things, I have solved this issue with people who know my by coming up with a system labeling left as the name of the person in the driver seat and right as the passenger. “Turn Cory at this next light.” “Keep to the Alia at the fork up there.”

2. What was that? Huh? Uh… could you repeat that? If you hang out with me on a regular basis, you’ve heard me use many similar phrases. I can’t hear worth a damn because I have terrible tinnitus, or ringing in the ears. I’ve had it since as long as I can remember, litterally. One of my earliest memories is sitting on a bed in my room in San Jose listening to the noise the silence makes. I’m pretty sure there’s no cure and I need radio or a fan or a TV on at night because sometimes it becomes so distracting when I’m trying to sleep that it might as well be traffic or a party (which incidently, has been drown out by my tinnitus on more than one occasion so I could sleep with commotion right outside.) Lately I’ve found that a sound known as “pink noise” will drown it out perfectly, and as a bonus I can do my homework listening to pink noise no matter who is watching what stupid show or having whatever stupid conversation.

3. The high pitched squeal of CRT televisions pisses me off. No one knows what I’m talking about unless they can hear it themselves, but it’s like nails on the chalkboard, I can hear it from across the house even when the input is paused and silent and it used to piss the kids off at my old job that I knew they were turning on the TV in the morning even though their look-out verified I was on the other side of the house.

4. I’m convinced that if I could get a fake ID and go to high school again, it would solve my academic problems. I would get scholarships and acceptance to great schools and everything would be paid for, and I wouldn’t have to limp through community college trying to make the rent every month. All my friends in the AP classes would have me help them with papers and study, even though I was in the dumb, non-college prep classes. I took Algebra 3 times (once in Jr. high, because I had gone to algebra a year early) and geometry twice. I was not dumb. I was unmotived. Now I’m motivated. I just can’t imagine the administration not asking questions about school history, parents or walking into the office saying “sign me up.”

5. I have a thing for small boobs. They’re just nice. (I am really running out of things to say.)

6. On that colorblindness test where you look at the dots, I can see some of the numbers you’re supposed to see if you’re color-sighted, but I can also see the number in the picture where it’s designed for colorblind people to see, but not colorsighted people. People are always telling me I’m wrong about the colors I see but, I’m pretty sure people don’t see colors the way I do because they are unobservant and conditioned to see what they see. For instance, if I asked you right now what color tail lights and traffic lights are (for stopping) you would say red. “Red light”, duh, of course. But if you looked carefully, most tail lights and stop lights are not red. They are orange (at least the way I see it.) Even if you were looking right at one, I’m still sure you’d probably say they are red, and I will never know if people say that because it’s what they know or because they see the color different than me, but I have gotten a few people to admit “yeah, they do look orange.”

NOW FOR THE FUN PART!!!
Alia, Anne, Gladys, Johanna, Kat and Will are all “it” next.
