100 things about me

I totally swiped this from Eric at Gambrinous with Griffonage who totally swiped it from Dave2 at Blogography

1. Are you young at heart, or an old soul?

I think a little of both. I try hard to enjoy myself and not feel the need to conform to “age appropriate” behavior. I love to laugh, dance, sing, color, run around naked, splash, blow bubbles, eat cookies for breakfast, roll down hills, watch cartoons, window shop in toy stores and am truly amazed at new things I discover in the universe. But I also feel like I’ve lived a slew of lifetimes in my almost-42-years on this earth and evolved into a completely different person than I once was (or thought I was). I have developed a cynicism and pessimism that comes from “knowing better” and “understanding how things really work” and accepting that life isn’t fair, people aren’t all good at heart and you don’t always get out what you put in. The disappointments, heartbreaks, disillusion, hate and hurt I have seen and experienced in this life sometimes has me feeling I am ready to call it quits and spend the remainder of my days in quiet solitude, away from the world and all its ills. Don’t know if that makes me an “old soul” or just a “cranky old man,” though.

2. What makes someone a best friend?

Anyone who will give you the last cookie, cosmo or comic book is best friend material.

3. What Christmas (or Hanukkah) present do you remember the most?

The limited edition Green Lantern power battery replica from Jeffrey. Also, discovering there was no Santa Claus helped me on my road to secularism and atheism and that was a gift that has kept on giving.

4. Tell me about a movie/song/TV show/play/book that has changed your life.

Movie: The Times of Harvey Milk

Song: Something Inside So Strong (Flirtations)

TV Show: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (in that it is the show I hold all others up to by comparison)

Play: Bent

Book: The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life and Times of Harvey Milk

5. Name one physical feature that you like about yourself, and one you dislike.

I am most content with/least bothered by my…ahem…”endowment”; I hate everything else about my body.

6. Would you like to reconnect with any friends you’ve lost contact with?

All things being equal, I wish I never knew the pain of lost friendships, by intention or happenstance; having said that, all my ex-friends are ex-friends for a reason and I don’t believe any of the broken or lost friendships are renewable or repairable at this point…too much time and water under the bridge. But I’ve been wrong before.

7. What’s more important in a relationship: physical attraction or emotional connection?

Physical attraction is often what first brings you together, but emotional connections are what sustain a relationship (for me, at least.) I believe, if anything happened to me or a partner I was in an honest loving, nurturing relationship with, and our physical forms or capabilities were damaged or changed in a way that negatively impacted our physical attraction to one another, we could/would still be together in a loving, committed partnership. (“For better or for worse.”) But if one of us transformed into the “ideal physical specimen” to/for the other, but the emotional connection was lost or non-existent, we could not/would not stay together for long if at all.

8. Name a movie that you knew would be terrible just from reading the title.

Just one? I’ll randomly pick “Dude, Where’s My Car?

9. What holiday do you most look forward to?

If it counts: my birthday. Otherwise, I don’t really look forward to any other holiday and would not care if I didn’t celebrate any of them; however, I DO like any holiday I get the day off for, especially the ones that fall in the summer.

10. How is the relationship between you and your parents?

I have a non-existent relationship with my father (or, as I prefer to refer to him, the other biological reason for my existence) who now lives in Ireland.

My mother lives 10 minutes away and I think we have a pretty good relationship, over all.

11. You’ve got the TV on, but you’re not really watching. What channel is the TV on?

As much as I loathe “background” TV noise (either watch the damn thing or shut it off), HGTV is the default station if I’m multi-tasking or zoning out.

12. Name a song that never fails to make you happy.

“Change In My Life” by Rockapella

13. You know at least one person named Michael. Tell me about him.

I think I know more men with the name Mike/Michael than any other name; and we’ve had a running joke, off and on, that we can’t befriend any more Michaels as we already have too many of them in our social circle. Of the ones we do know, they all have name qualifiers i.e. “Cigar Mike” or “Cousin Mike”; but, currently, the most prominent gent in my life these days, that goes by the name Michael (not Mike, at least to me) is my blogger buddy, Michael, aka Dr. Spo aka Ur-Spo aka “Sir” (oops, that last one probably should have stayed in the recesses of my naughty brain parts.) Michael is one of the wisest men I know, and I find myself in awe and envy of his writing skill, blog content, wit, wisdom, humor, talents, commitment to (and success with) his personal fitness goals and his winning good looks and charms. He is the Michael I am currently most fond of (and intimidated by, if I’m being honest.)

14. Have you ever read the "Missed Connections" on Craigslist? Have you ever posted one, or wanted to?

A friend turned me on to these years back and I used to check them every day, for entertainment purpose mostly, but always secretly hoping someday I’d see a post directed at me, for no particular reason. I’ve had friends who have posted fake posts directed at me, knowing I read them, but never been the true subject of an authentic post. I did post one once….but nothing came of it, which is probably for the better. I do still read through them every now and then, albeit very infrequently, when I’m bored and poking around on the interwebs.

15. If you could pick anywhere to live the rest of your life, where would it be?

Although many factors would play a part in my actual decision, were I actually able to go anywhere I wanted to, (weather, access to health care, legal benefits) just on personal preference at this point in my life, it would be Provincetown, MA.

16. Can money buy happiness?

No, it cannot; but not having money when you need it (and/or want it) can be quite miserable and/or make life difficult or stressful, so having it can at least reduce the level of misery in your life by allowing you the option to do and have things you might not be able to, otherwise, without it.

17. Do you drink? Smoke? Do drugs? Why, or why not?

“No lips that touch alcohol shall ever touch mine” is a phrase that, if uttered by you, will ensure you and I aren’t spending any time making out. I did not drink alcohol, for the most part, on any kind of regular basis, until long after I was married and Jeffrey and I started to socialize more. It never really appealed to me and being drunk or tipsy was an awful feeling, from my little experience. Plus, a complete lack of knowledge of, and exposure to, alcohol, very little money (booze is expensive,) lack of social circle (we never went to bars and didn’t have alcohol at home,) and my health issues just made the whole drinking issue relatively moot for me. My downfall was discovering the magical concoction known as the “Cosmo”, and I have been a faithful and regular imbiber ever since.

I “part-time” smoked when I was younger, as a social activity. How I never got hooked, I can’t say, but I could smoke like a chimney for days on end with friends, then not touch a cigarette again for weeks, months or years. I mostly liked to smoke while I was drinking with other smokers, or after sex. That was many, many years ago (20+?). I officially don’t smoke any more. However, it’s not out of the realm of possibilities that if you spent enough time with me at enough parties where there were smokers and booze, you might eventually, for a brief moment, catch me puffing a butt…but it’s very rare and mostly unlikely. Now cigars, on the other hand…

No drug use, per se. I “experimented” with pot a few enough times to count on one hand and have fingers left over, but it never appealed to me and have no desire to try again. I’ve never tried (or wanted to try) any other drugs, beyond coffee, alcohol and the natural scent of an attractive man…

18. Is there anyone close to you that you know you can’t trust? You don’t have to give names.

I’m not sure I consider myself close to people if I don’t trust them, but there are one or two people in my life who I spend time with on a regular basis and genuinely do like, that I trust less than they realize.

19. Where was your favorite place to go when you were a little kid?

My room to read comics or draw. We never went anywhere else…we were poor. But I loved being in my room.

20. Have you ever spent a night in the hospital?

More times than I care to remember. Probably will again. And again.

21. Do you enjoy being with only one or two friends, or with a large group of people?

I use to be more drawn to the latter, but find myself more drawn to the former as I age. Also depends on my mood and the activity. A party sucks with only one or two people, but a road trip is more fun with fewer.

22. Do you like the type of music your parents listen to? Do your parents like the type of music you listen to?

My father only listened to Irish and Country music, which I loathed for its connection to, and memory of, him; I have only been able to enjoy some of it in my older age now that time and distance have helped fade the connection to him.

My Mom loves rock and roll, do-wop and easy listening and I inherited similar musical tastes, with a few additions. She doesn’t play music often, but I’ve never walked into her house and heard something I didn’t like.

23. Have you ever been bullied? Have you ever bullied anyone else?

I was bullied and abused by my father for the first 16 years of my life. I was bullied by classmates and neighborhood kids starting in 4th grade and regularly from then on until I graduated from High School. I have also experienced bullying post high school, in college and out in social settings. I have never, to my knowledge, bullied another person. I don’t have the desire, ability or stomach for it. And I have zero tolerance for anyone who does it, promotes it, allows it, or endorses it.

24. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

My first choice would have been entirely inappropriate to say, given the mixed crowd that reads my blog. SO, I’ll go with my second choice: peanut butter. I think you’d get sick of ANYTHING if it’s all you ate, but I think it would take me longest to get sick of peanut butter. I guess I just have a thing for sources of protein J

25. If your partner wanted to wait until marriage before having sex, would you stay in that relationship?

No. I think sex is a natural, healthy part of a relationship and personal experience, and I don’t prescribe to any of the beliefs or reasons for “waiting until marriage.” Besides, at the time I started having sex, marriage was not legal for lgbt people anywhere, so that attitude would have pretty much meant never having sex…ever. Putting that aside, it is most likely that, if my partner held beliefs that required him to wait until marriage to have sex, we’d be incompatible for reasons beyond lack of similar attitudes on bumping our boy parts.

26. Do you believe in a god?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA (*gasps for breath* *wipes tears from eyes**tries to regain composure and wait out the uncontrollable giggles and chuckles that keep exploding from my mouth*) Whew! OK, now, let’s try that again….I have seen no evidence that any god, deity, higher power, universal conscience or intelligent superbeing exists in the Universe that we know or are aware of, so my default and ongoing belief is that none exists. Should the day come that recordable, measurable, provable scientific evidence surfaces to the contrary, I am open to be proven wrong. Until then, see the first part of my answer.

27. Of all the social networks in the world, why use Twitter?

I don’t, so I can’t answer that.

28. What’s your favorite hashtag to track?

See my answer to number 27

29. Would you call yourself/your family "middle class?"

I’m unclear on what exactly officially constitutes middle-class, but I guess I consider us somewhere between upper-working class and lower-middle class. We can afford all the things we need to survive, plus a little extra for fun and entertainment, but vacations, home repairs and big purchases (furniture, appliances, cars) are rare and not a given. Personally, since I grew up at or below the poverty level, I feel pretty damn wealthy most of the time.

30. Name a TV series you didn’t enjoy until after it ended.

I didn’t get into Friends, Futurama or Arrested Development until after they were cancelled.

31. Have you ever bought a product from an infomercial?

No. Although I may have inadvertently bough the same product through one of the discount catalogs my Mom would get. I know there’s some quick fix item or two I’ve plunked down moolah for in my day…

32. If you could give up your car and never have to drive again, would you?

I hate driving, and only do it out of necessity, so I’d give up my car in a heartbeat if I could be driven around as/when needed and/or lived close enough to walk to shops, diners, bars and entertainment venues, and many things I could just order on line or have delivered. But as much as I hate driving, I would not give up the freedom owning and being able to operate a car gives me if it meant being trapped at home.

33. If you go back to one point in time to give advice to yourself, when would you go and what would you say?

I think you have to be careful mucking with your past or you’ll wind up mucking with your present; but if I could without changing the positive fundamentals of my life now, I would advise my younger, teen self (probably around 13) to start eating right and exercising right then; or I’d tell my college age self (around 18) to transfer to a different college and finish my degree;

Of course, the best thing would be for me to tell my younger self that I’m not the only gay person in the world and I am going to discover a whole community of people who are just like me and accept me.

34. What’s your "quirkiest" habit?

Chewing my left pinky.

35. What is "normal?" Are you normal?

I think the concept of normal is dying out. I’m sure whatever it is, I’m not it….

36. Someone close to you is dying. You have the choice to let this person live for 10 more years, but if you do, you cause the death of 10 strangers. You don’t have to see them die. Do you take the offer?

Ethically, I’d like to believe I’d say no, if it was in the future and I had my wits about me to think it through and understand the ramifications of it; however, I held my beloved dog and best friend in my arms as he was injected with a fluid that would stop his heart and end his life and, forgive me, but if I could have wished 10 anonymous living things dead to keep him alive, at that moment, I have no doubt my emotions and desperation to keep him alive and here with me would have taken control and I’d have done it. I can’t imagine what it would be like trying to make that decision if someone else I loved was dying before my eyes and I was given the power to save him/her. (There’s an episode of Angel wherein Angel must make a similar, albeit much pricier, decision for the life of a friend and co-worker, Fred…it hurts my heart to watch it.) There’s what we know is right, and then there’s what we’d actually do when we’re blinded with grief and desperation. (I hate these kinds of questions. They really mess me up and wreak havoc with my moral barometer.)

37. What is one thing you could never forgive?

Intentionally abusing another living thing (including me).

38. Would you rather be in a relationship after the honeymoon period ends, or be single?

No relationship stays the same, and newness and excitement and thrill give way to sincere and deep understanding, commitment, trust and shared experience. Sure, it’s thrilling to have that first kiss, that unbridled passion for one another, that can’t wait to see you every minute of every day feeling…but that pales in comparison when you feel that familiar hand in yours once again, see those eyes that have looked at you with compassion, love and support over the years, and truly understand and know that what you have is stronger and more valuable than what you had. Knowing that giving someone your body is one thing…but sharing your home and life and love is a whole other plane of existence. Yeah, I’ll take the post-honeymoon relationship any day. Besides, honeymoons are great, but I’ve always been a homebody at heart….

39. Is it possible for guys and girls to be just friends?

Yeah. Way yeah!

40. Where do you and your friends go to hang out?

Most often in one of our homes (usually mine). Otherwise, we go out to restaurants and, on very rare occasions, a bar.

41. Write the first sentence of your obituary.

“Sean was a sassy bear who lived by a simple set of rules: No Prayers. No Pants. No Partially consumed cosmos.”

42. What is the best TV theme song ever?

The Theme to Wonder Woman. You just can’t beat lyrics like “In her satin tights, fighting for our rights…and the old red, white and blue.”

43. When you were young, what would you dream you would be when you grew up?

Thin and good looking. Fortunately, I learned to live with disappointment before I was out of grammar school.

44. When you’re alone in your own home, do you walk around naked?

When I’m home alone in ANYBODY’s home, actually. (There go all my invites…)

45. What gets you out of bed in the morning?

An alarm, a need to pee and/or an intense amount of willpower….

46. Do you want to have more friends than you have right now?

I never say no to making new friends, but I have a wealth of friends already, so I’d rather have more time to spend with the friends I already have.

47. What part of the past year sticks out in your mind?

Surprising my Mom with the house we had just closed on and the first time I held each of our two dogs we adopted…

48. You win a scratch-off lottery game that gives you $2000 a week (after taxes) for the rest of your life. Do you keep your job?

The practical side of me would probably convince myself I’d be better off to keep my job in addition to the lottery winnings and I’d probably force myself to keep my job until I couldn’t stand it anymore. But it would definitely be tempting to up and quit.

49. Could you be in a long-distance relationship? If you’re in one, what makes yours work?

It is difficult, but where there’s a will, there’s a way. If you want to be with someone, the distance is not going to stop you, it’s just going to challenge you.

50. What’s the best route to your heart?

A good sense of humor and copious amounts of compassion and sincerity.

51. Have you ever met someone through the internet, and then met them in real life?

Yup. All kinds of people through all kinds of sites. The higher quality ones have been blogger buddies. The lower quality ones have been fun for a quickie.

52. What is your favorite sport?

Bowling. But only to participate in. Have no interest in watching any sport unless it’s men’s beach volleyball or men’s swimming, and only when I’m alone and have some porn music on…

53. What has been troubling you lately?

My “Career”, my weight, and my finances, in that order…

54. Did you enjoy your high school prom? If you haven’t gotten there yet, do you look forward to it? If you didn’t go, why not?

I went to several proms and dances, including my own. I can’t say I enjoyed any of them. I went because I was asked and/or expected to. (Always went with female friends but never anyone I was actually “dating.”) It was all a farce and waste of time and money as far as I was/am concerned.

55. What do you use more often: your intuition or logical reasoning?

I almost always use both…I reason logically as best I can, but I never ignore my intuition.

56. Do you know what makes you happy?

A combination of things brings me the sensation of happiness on a regular basis: food, sex, alcohol, dogs, laughter, friends, music, love, comic books, etc.

57. Tell me about the last book you read.

Not counting comic books, which I read weekly as time allows, the last full length novel I read was “Tales of Midnight”, Volume 13 in The Wheel of Time epic fantasy series by Robert Jordan. This is a character and detail intensive series and I have forgotten far more than I remember about it, as the books are long and involved and have been published far apart in the last few volumes (possibly due to the author’s death and new writers finishing the series using the plot and character summaries and notes he left behind.) It is a fantastic world of magic and might, good and evil, champions and villains, politic struggle and strategy, dark vs light, romance, adventure, fantasy and mystery all rolled into one. I devoured each book as it came out and may have to re-read the series from the beginning now that the final volume has been published.

58. What is the nicest compliment you’ve ever been given?

I was once told that I was an inspiration to other lgbt people struggling to come to terms with their sexuality and coming out of the closet. That probably has meant the most to me, although any compliment is welcome, even though I take compliments badly and rarely get them, let alone believe them.

59. Who was your first crush?

Race Bannon and Dr. Benton Quest. They co-starred together on Johnny Quest and I think I was in love with them at age 5. And, yeah, I know they are cartoon characters. So? They were dreeeeeammmmmyyyyyy.

60. Do you believe that there is life on other planets?

It seems illogical that, given the size of our galaxy and universe, we are the ONLY planet with sentient, intelligent life. However, I haven’t seen any convincing evidence that non-earthlings have visited or contacted us.

61. Predict what your life will look like a year from now.

If I could do that, I’d have a much easier time planning and preparing for it. I HOPE I will be thinner, have less debt and maybe even be in a new job. But my life is pretty stable right now so, barring any unforeseen or unusual circumstances, I don’t imagine it will be vastly different than it is now. However, life is what happens to you when you’re busy making other plans, and I have a new home, new pets and new relationships, all things I acquired in the last year that I did not expect to have 2 years ago, so I’m not really foolish enough to think I have a clue what lies ahead…I don’t even know what I’m having for dinner tonight.

62. Often, people will ask how your last relationship ended. I want to know how it began.

The longest relationship I had, before Jeffrey, was a year and a half. He was the cousin of a friend of mine, who was visiting this area, and I was asked to entertain him for the day. I did…And how! It was instant chemistry, I was running from a failed life here (had to leave college, no job, broken up with my boyfriend) and we were both husband hunting, so I went to visit him for a week and VOILA! A relationship was born. All the others I had between him and Jeffrey were very short dating scenarios…none lasted beyond a few weeks.

63. Where is your favorite place to go out and eat?

That’s tough, as it depends on my mood and cravings. My current local favorites are:

Potter’s Tavern – for a quiet, romantic or intimate evening with 1 or 2 other people.

Olde English Pub – for a casual, fun group outing of 3 or more for beer, fish & chips and maybe a board game. (And the bartenders and kitchen staff are very easy on the eyes…woof!)

Saki Japanese Sushi House – for great sushi (one of my favorite foods) and fabulous cocktails.

Milanos – for finer dining and all celebrations. And my friend, Jay, is the best waiter ever!

The Standard – for a good cocktail, a great variety of food and when you want something a hair more upscale than the family-dining food chains. (Usually few, if any, children there, too.) Good for groups and last minute gatherings.

64. What is something you want to change about your current situation?

I want to find a job that pays close to what I make now but that I don’t hate and doesn’t chip away at my soul every minute I’m here. I don’t want to be miserable 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.

65. Early bird or night owl?

Both…I hate to go to bed and the dogs won’t let me sleep in even if I wanted to. I’d say I get, on average, 4-5 hours a sleep a night, rarely uninterrupted. I am most creative at night, but most productive, otherwise, in the morning.

66. Are there any childhood possessions you still hold on to?

I don’t think I still own a single thing from my childhood, other than my galeophobia and my insecurities.

67. Give me an unpopular opinion you have.

I think children under the age of 10 should be banned from restaurants, movie theaters, concert halls, grocery stores and pretty much any place I frequent or patronize. Hell, make that anyone under 18.

68. What was the last song that was stuck in your head?

“My bologna has a first name…it’s O-S-C-A-R…”

69. Where do you live?

I live in Spiegletown, NY – although my mailing address is Troy, NY. It is a suburb about 25 minutes north of Albany, NY, the Capital of NY State. I am 10 minutes away from the neighborhood I grew up in. I’m still coming to terms with that.

70. Do you believe in giving kids medals and trophies for participation?

Nope. I think it’s why the next generation believes they deserve a salary, benefits, promotions and raises just for “showing up” at work. We are teaching kids that excelling or achieving doesn’t matter, just trying does. We should encourage effort, but reward success. You don’t have to be a failure OR a winner…you can be someone who keeps trying until they succeed. As they said in the Incredibles:

Helen: Everyone’s special, Dash.

Dash: Which is another way of saying no one is.

71. What was the longest car ride you’ve ever taken?

We drove to New Orleans and back. Not in the same day.

72. Have you ever taken part in a protest?

Yes. Multiple. Against the KKK. For marriage equality. For both women’s and lgbt equality. For social justice and against animal cruelty. I was quite the activist in my younger days.

73. Would you ever use an online dating service?

Probably not.

74. What is your ethnic heritage?

Irish. Human. Either works.

75. Describe a person that inspires you.

76. If you earn minimum wage doing what you love, would you?

Yes, as long as my family didn’t suffer for my reduction in pay. Otherwise, I’d rather do what I love for less, than do what I hate for more.

77. Do you believe in luck?

No. Life is random and there’s a lot of coincidence. Good things happen to people randomly. For some, good things happen more often. I don’t think there’s any true universal or mystical force behind it…knock on wood.

78. Describe the last time you were very angry at someone.

I have ongoing anger, going on almost 5 months now, towards someone connected to my professional life. ‘Nuff said.

79. Do you want to live until you’re 100?

Only if I’m relatively healthy and of sound mind. If I need other people or machines to keep me alive and functioning, and I can’t carry on a decent conversation or know and understand my loved ones, I don’t want to be here.

80. Do people change? If so, how do you keep a relationship together when both of you start to change?

I do believe people can change and do change, but not all people will change. Some relationships can survive when those involved with it change, some can’t. What works for some may not work for others. Honest communication, reassurance, support and understanding go a long way in helping all involved to adapt as things change or evolve from what they once were.

81. Have you ever risked a friendship by telling someone you liked them?

Yes, twice. Both friendships ended because of it.

82. Would you rather be alone doing something you enjoy, or doing something you don’t like with your best friends?

Again, I once would have preferred the latter, but now prefer the former.

83. Do you practice what you preach?

I really try to. When/If I don’t, I question what I’m “preaching…”

84. If you take precautions to stay safe, do you ultimately act more recklessly?

No. I don’t think anyone could honestly accuse me of being reckless. I’m probably to extreme in the other direction. I am not a risk taker.

85. What do you value more in a significant other: Attractiveness or intelligence?

Intelligence IS attractive. A handsome mind always wins over a handsome face in my book.

86. Are you hard-headed?

In some respect, yes. I can be very stubborn and steadfast when it comes to my beliefs, principles and opinions. This is not always a good thing; but it is not always bad, either.

87. Have you ever laughed uncontrollably when it was socially inappropriate?

Yes. Laughter seems to be an autonomic response to my feeling awkward or uncomfortable.

88. When have you felt most alive?

Whenever I’m performing…whether it’s singing, giving presentations, playing trombone, acting or having sex.

89. Where would you prefer to live? A city? The suburbs? The countryside? The mountains?

I used to be a city boy at heart. Now I’ve discovered my country boy side. Ultimately, I want one extreme or the other…in the heart of the happening spot of a city, or in the middle of nowhere.

90. Do you often skip breakfast?

Sort of (?) Week days I either head straight to the gym, then have coffee and ensure once I’m at work; or I have coffee before work, then an ensure once I arrive at work. I can’t eat first thing in the morning and rarely have solid food…

91. How do you know what true love is?

When even imagining your life without him in it, hurts too much to think about…

92. Would you want to know the exact date and time you were going to die?

If the information was available, I doubt I’d have the willpower to resist finding out.

93. Where is "home" for you?

Home is wherever I am with the people and pets I love, safe and sound.

94. What song best describes your life right now?

“9 to 5”

95. Do you want to be perfect?

No. I doubt many people would enjoy a friendship or relationship with someone who was perfect. Our flaws make us human and relatable. Besides, I don’t think there can ever be one agreed upon definition of “perfect.”

96. What have you never tried, but would really like to someday?

Getting a tattoo

97. How do you express your creativity?

Drawing; crocheting; playing trombone; decorating; writing

98. Describe your neighborhood.

Sub-rural, relatively quiet, out-of the-way

99. Name something you only liked because it was popular.

I don’t like anything just because it’s Popular. In fact, I tend to purposely avoid things just because they are popular. The closest thing I can think of is watching Downtown Abbey for the first time because everyone on Facebook was raving about it and now I’m hooked.

100. Give me the story of your life in six words.

Mostly very successful at being unsuccessful.

      75 was an oversight…I had something typed, then deleted it to rewrite and posted before I did. Yikes.
