Meme time

At first I resisted memes, and I don’t do all that come around, but there’s merit in letting readers know about you… let’s them know where you’re coming from. So with that, two memes:

ABC’s of me

  • Age — in my 30’s
  • Bed Size — queen (want a king, want a master bedroom big enough to hold a king)
  • Chore you hate — yes
  • Dire phobia — not a fear of heights, but probably a fear of falling or more so, landing
  • Essential start your day item — hug and kiss from my wife
  • Favorite color — blue
  • Gold or silver — prefer gold, but silver apparently looks better on me
  • Height — 6’3″
  • Instruments you play(ed) — piano, violin, trumpet, french horn, guitar
  • Job title — Grand Pooh-Bah
  • Kids — yes, 3
  • Living arrangements — in my house with my wife and kids, and various animals
  • Mom’s name — yes she has one
  • Nicknames — Hsoi
  • Overnight hospital stay other than birth — none
  • Pet peeve — lack of consistency
  • Quote from a movie — If it’s a Monty Python movie, too many to list.
  • Siblings — yes
  • Time you wake up — 5:00 AM or so
  • Underwear — yup
  • Vegetable you dislike — bitter gourd
  • Ways you run late — OK, maybe running late is my pet peeve… I try to avoid it. If I’m running late, typically it’s induced by external factors (e.g. whomever is going with me, and they are the ones running late)
  • X-rays you’ve had — both feet/ankles, chest, hand/wrists, probably others that I can’t recall right now
  • Yummy food you make — all food I make is yummy
  • Zoo favorite — depends on the zoo. Austin Zoo? nothing. Henry Doorly Zoo? everything.

  5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments? — generally no, but it might depend upon what I was seeing the doctor about.
  6. What do you think of hot dogs? — Evil wonderful food. Wrap it in bacon, even better!

  13. What’s the one trait you hate about yourself? — often doing things to 90-95% completion then not finishing for whatever reason. Often due to loss of interest because my brain has conquered the thing and is ready to move onto the next thing. It’s one reason I was bent on getting my black belt.

  18. Currently hate right now? — the direction my country seems to be headed in. But hate doesn’t do much good, so I just use it as motivation to do what I can to improve upon things.
