Thumbnail Sketch

There is this meme going around where people list three things they've done that they don't think anybody else on their friends list had done. Most people are using it as a platform to boast about their various sexual escapades, so this is obviously going to be somewhat less provocative than those, but not to be a stick in the mud:
  1. I drew cartoons for the underground newspaper of my high school; I also did a caricature of each of my friends back then (I wish I could find those).

  2. A friend of mine and I sneaked into a tennis match at the Arthur Ashe stadium to see Andre Aggasi get his ass handed to him. I don't even care about tennis, it just seemed an interesting thing to have done. I'm very glad that I did because now I can put it down in this here meme!

  3. I shaved my head on a bet and got a guy to paint his face purple (he also put on orange nail polish, though I didn't ask him to do that). He had to go out and be in public like that. You don't believe me, do you? Well, I happen to have the proof right here:

Are you anything like you were at this point last year?
Yes and no... I just checked my LJ for one year ago and found that I just got my car back all fixed, and she is back to dying now. I saw my review for The Warriors, a film I have just gotten on Blu-ray (it looks fantastic, but is, unfortunately, the "Ultimate Director's Cut" version). I talk about the Alex North mix that I never ended up finishing. It is also right about when Steven's father Harold began to expire. On the other hand, I am involved in several projects that I am extremely pleased are advancing (despite some unavoidable delays on The Early Mixes, and high def rocks.

Three days from now will you have sex?
Extremely doubtful. Any volunteers?

What are you wearing right now?
It being Thursday, I'm wearing my union colors, so I have a red T-shirt. I am wearing one of my myriad of green utility shorts (which I am technically not supposed to wear at work, I have a pair of jeans in my backpack should I need to go to the office) and boots.

What are you most looking forward to tomorrow?
Nothing in particular, but Fridays are always nice.

Have you ever been awake for 48 hours?
Yes, I have. Not recently, though. I can't do that shit anymore.

What are you listening to?
The suite David Shire put together of his Raid on Entebbe score, which was paired with Jerry Goldsmith's Morituri on an excellent Film Score Monthly album.

Do you like your first name?
Yes, I do. I used to dislike the "ua" at the end of it, but I've outgrown that.

Baseball or football?
Neither, but if I had to pick one, I'd rather baseball because I can enjoy that game and I can't stand American football.

Are you jealous of anyone right now?
Nobody springs to mind.

Do you regret doing something today?
Not yet. The day is still young.

When you think of the rainbow, what pops in your head?

Do you think you're old?
My brother often makes me feel old.

Are you afraid of the dark?
No, in fact I prefer night to day. Left to my own devices, I'm nocturnal.

Have you got a tan?
A farmer's tan, presently.

What are you looking forward to in the next month?
My new camera, rehearsals for The Early Mixes.

When is the last time you talked to number 1 on your top friends?
This is clearly from MySpace... the answer would be that I've texted with him yesterday but have not, unfortunately, been able to speak to him for health reasons (his, not mine).

What color is your hair?
Dirty blonde on my head, with red in the beard and body hair. Hey, you asked.

Do you like pancakes?
I love 'em!

Have you told anybody you loved them today?

Do you have a Facebook?
Yes, I do now.

Sometimes, do you wish you were someone else?
Sometimes I wish I were certain fictional characters.

Have you ever told anyone you were OK when you really weren't?
Not really. I'm pretty up-front about my feelings.

When was the last time you cried?
Well, I recently got the expanded album of Ennio Morricone's Cinema Paradiso score...

If you could change your eye color would you?
No, I like my eyes.

Last bed you slept in and with who?
My own and I was alone. Cue solo violin.

How many hours sleep did you get last night?
5... I would like to have gotten more, actually...

You like the color green?
It depends on the shade!

Be honest, do you like people in general?
No, they're a bunch of self-deluded primates with delusions of grandeur for the most part whose technology level does not match their tribal mentality.

Who was the last person to leave you a comment?
revelos55 and I are having a conversation about Farscape in general and Gigi Edgly in particular.

How old do you think you will be when you finally have kids?
I wish I knew.
