Memes, are they for you?

So Epheros has thrown down a challenge that I've decided to accept. I'm not much of a fan of memes, but they do provide some interesting info about the person answering the questions. I just usually don't open up much.

So Epheros, challenge accepted.

1. Elaborate on your default icon: It's currently a self portrait that I photo-shopped with mustache and beard (a la Captain Morgan style). The photo was taken back when we lived in Shelby, NC.

2. What's your current relationship status? Married for 6 years. My level of happiness varies from day to day.

3. Ever have a near-death experience? Depends on how you define "near death." I've lifted a body in a body bag once, that was not fun. But the closest I've come to death (that I can remember) would be a tie between my bike accident as a kid (I blacked out) and the car accident I was in as a kid (again, I blacked out). Again, not fun.

4. Name an obvious quality you have: Organized to a near-Monk level.

5. What's the name of the song that's stuck in your head right now? I'm currently removing the Umpa Lumpa song from my head by listening to Eminem.

6. Name a celebrity you would, in a fantastical hypothetical world, like to get to know. Bill Gates or Warren Buffett. I don't know much about them, but they do give a lot of their money away. Something I would do if I were rich.

7. Who will cut and paste this first? Probably nobody.

8. Has anyone ever said you look like a celebrity? Yes, Neil Patrick Harris. Odd that we have the same first name.

9. Do you wear a watch? Yes, but on the wrong wrist. Most right-handed people wear their watch on their left wrist. I wear mine on my right.

10. Do you have anything pierced? Yes, mt left earlobe. I did a bit of a social experiment at work to see if anyone would notice. Surprisingly they did. Haven't worn an earring on a regular basis since college (circa 1995).

11. Do you have any tattoos? Yes. Two, one on each shoulder blade. Left side is the Rebel symbol, right side is the Imperial symbol. I'm considering another one.

13. Do you like to shop? I grew up as a mall-rat, so that's an obvious yes.

14. What was the last thing you paid for with cash? A soda from the machine at work. Although, I guess that was just a quarter, so maybe it doesn't count. Before that, lunch at McDonalds last Monday. 4 piece Happy Meal (for Elizabeth), 2 double cheeseburgers, 1 medium fry, and 1 small Coke. Total cost was $7.62.

15. What was the last thing you paid for with your credit card? Hang on, let me check, it was gas at Sheetz on Saturday. 12 gallons for $24.95.

16. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone? My wife (Yvonne), this morning to find out if I was at the doctor's office yet. I was.

17. What is on your desktop background? Currently the two guys from Psych.

18. What is the background on your cell phone? Elizabeth from this summer. I should really update it.

19. What was the last movie you watched? Completely, would be Die Hard. Still haven't finished Click yet.

20. What was the last book you read? Currently reading Conquistador by S. M. Stirling. But the last one I finished was The Mystery Box by Gordon McAlpine.

Eh, very interesting! I agree, I hardly ever do them, and if I do it's usually those ones from some website that lets you add the pic to livejournal.

Nothing like spending a couple minutes to take a mind-numbing test, I view it as keeping my skills up for college. :-D

That's interesting about the watch. When I wore a watch I wore it on the right hand as well. But, I'm more or less ambidextrous so back then it was more pronounced. I still wear a belt from a left hander's perspective.

Also, I saw the ultrasound pics, that's great! How far along is she, it doesn't look like much on there, but hey, peanuts don't register much with sensors, eh? :-)

Actually the first pic shows the baby as the size of a grain of rice. Looked more like the period at the end of sentence to me.

She's about 7 weeks along. Due September 9th.
