Grown Up Survey

Here are questions for the people who are a little more relatable...

What bill do you hate paying the most?

I don�t like paying bills period. So I overpay and ignore them all for months.

Where was the last place you had a romantic dinner?

If memory serves me right it was the Four Seasons restaurant in San Francisco. Next one will be in NYC when we travel next month. Oddly enough, she�ll be buying me dinner for my birthday.

Last time you puked from drinking?

It�s more fun to tell about my designated driver puking at my last birthday party and I ended up driving home my designated driver. Took a few hours to sober up and thanks to Cyn we are no longer allowed to return to Mel�s.

When is the last time you got drunk and danced on a bar?

I have not danced drunk on a bar. Only chicks are allowed to dance drunk on a bar.

Have you ever danced naked while drunk?

Answer depends on whether or not every file was deleted.

Name of your first grade teacher?

It was Sister Something. It was catholic school, she was a nun, and I don�t know why the good students got the wooden ruler with the metal edge. GRRRRRR!

What do you really want to be doing right now?

Getting back to work but Shabnam keeps saying �c�mon Erie, fill out the survery.�

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

A Silicon Valley Geek. I knew I would have a computer, but I think that had to do with wanting to play video games

Why did you choose the shirt that you have on right now?

Because I own 50+ black t-shirts, it was readily available.

What do you think about the current gas prices?

I choose to drive every day, I�ll deal with it within reason.

First thought when you woke up this morning?

�That was a good dream. Do I have to go back to work?�

Last thought before going to sleep last night?

�My co-worker Sammy is a dork.�

Favorite style of underwear on yourself?

Boxer briefs, so when they ask boxers or briefs, it is both.

Favorite style of underwear for the opposite sex?

Thong thong thong thong thong.

What errand/chore do you despise?

Usually the ones that involve doing errands or chores.

If you didn't have to work, would you volunteer?

I already volunteer sometimes.

Get up early or sleep in?


Do you go to Conventions?

For work I have. Not the geeky star trek kind. (although actually I did go to one before and those people scared me)

What is your favorite cartoon character?

Yakko Animaniacs. �HELLO NURSE!�

Favorite thing to do at night with a girl/guy?

With a girl � it involves touching and lips.

Thought I did once, but she proved me wrong.

When did you first start feeling old?

Who are you calling old?

Favorite 80's movie?

Back To The Future.

Your favorite lunch meat?


Do you Think marriage is an outdated ritual?

Not outdated. I just don�t believe in rushing into it. I�ve dated girls who wanted to be married for the status. I rather get it right the first time than be another statistic.

Favorite guilty pleasure?

There�s a lot of those. Are we talking about food?

Favorite movie you wouldn't want anyone to find out about?

IF I don�t want anyone to find out, I shouldn�t type it here. DUH!!!

Cowboys or Indians?

Indians cuz they own all the Indian Casinos.

Cops or Robbers?

Well since I don�t know what third party is reading my online activity, I�m gonna say Cops. Love all our Law Enforcement Agencies. Keep up the good work. ;-)

Who from high school would you like to run into?

My best friend and anyone else I ever bothered to stay in touch with cuz why care about someone I didn�t care enough to stay in touch with.

What radio station is your car radio tuned to right now?

Uh NORM. He�s got all the BEER.

Simpsons. Eat my Shorts.
Run that show to the ground.

Worst relationship mistake that you wish you could take back?

A few people know this story. It�s not for public consumption.

Do you like the person who sits directly across from you at work?

Since I knew I would be forced to give up half my office space when we were hiring last December, I made sure the person would be someone I like. I�m not giving up my space to someone I couldn�t like.

And Sammy feeds me when I�m hungry so what�s not to like? YOU�RE THE BEST SHABZ!!!!!

If you could get away with it, who would you kill?

Not my nature to do so. (especially with the third party monitoring my Internet activities.)

Are there any celebs on my MySpace Friends list? (of course I am a fan of PussyCatDolls.) ;-)

What famous person would you like to sleep with?

Any famous person who�s HOT.

Have you ever had to use a fire extinguisher for its intended purpose?

No. I better check the expiration date on the one in my house.

Last book you read for real?

Son Of A Witch. I was disappointed.

Do you have a teddy bear?

There is that bear we won at the Juniper Carnival sitting on my desk at work. It is sad, I have the only stuffed animal with a receding hairline. It all shedded that day.

Strangest place you have ever brushed your teeth?

I can say the gymnasium at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. College kid going to see the dean about transferring from SFSU. I wasn�t living in the same income bracket back then so I slept in my Mustang on the campus parking lot and went to the gym to wash up before my morning meetings.

Somewhere in California you've never been and would like to go.

Mendocino County to see the Roederer Estates.
