    I got nothing
    My brain is fried. But the highlight of my week? By FAR? Anna Quindlen served me eggs last night. Yup, that's right people, a best selling author served me breakfast. Why? Oh, well, I went to Midnight Breakfast at Barnard with Barnard Boy last night and along with the Deans, Profs., staff, etc. serving all manner of morning food, Barnard alumnus Anna Quindlen was in attendance. I didn't even want eggs to be honest. I'd had three cups of coffee and far too many cookies. I just wanted to be in her presence. Like her proximity to me would somehow make my writing better. Plus, hell, it's a good story.

    Anyway, since the blog has sucked of late, I am calling for audience participation. A friend of mine posted this on myspace and some of the responses received were hilarious, so I am trying it out on you guys. You can post your answers in the comments section, or email them to me (my email address is listed in the right menu). Lame and stupid? Yeah, but knowing some of you, some of these answers could be pretty freaking funny.

    I want to know 20 things about you. I don't care if we've never talked, never liked each other, or if we already know everything about each other. I really don't. JUST REPLY.And people....make it interesting please :)

      2. Age: 26
      3. Single or Taken: Single (sigh)
      4. Favorite Movie: There are many, but The Princess Bridge, The Italian Job, My Fair Lady, Breakfast at Tiffany's and Center Stage are in the top 5.

      7. Dirty or Clean: Clean - seriously, have you met me?
      8. Tattoos and/or Piercings: One hole in each ear, no tattoos.

      HERE COMES THE FUN
      1. Do we know each other outside of the blogosphere? Yup - and despite the hell we went through, at least we got some good friends out of the deal.
      2. What's your philosophy on life? Take things as they come. If you get too upset about little things, you'll just be annoyed all the time. Sometimes I really need to take my own advice.
      3. Would you have my back in a fight? Definitely - and almost 4 years of the gym will hopefully mean I won't get my ass kicked.
      4. What's one thing you always wanted to tell me? You are an amazing person, and I really admire you a lot.
      5. What is your favorite memory of us? Even though it was a tough time, redecorating your apartment after the Ex left.
      6. Would you give me a kidney? In a heartbeat.
      7. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: I think that I'm not quite an adult because I still sleep in a twin size bed.
      8. Have you ever had a fantasy about me? Only in that we'd start our own company together
      9. Do you have a picture of the two of us? Yes, though I can't remember if it's from my birthday, your birthday or your last day of work.
      10. How did we meet? My second week at work, you arrived with a smile on your face.
      11. Have you ever been to my house? Oh, this is a bad question. I was at your apartment with the Ex. I never made it to last apartment and haven't been to the new place yet. But I WILL - I promise!!!
      12. Do you think I'm a good person? I think you're an amazingly good person, sometimes too good.
      13. Would you drive across country with me? Absolutely. I can only imagine the stories we'd have.
      14. Do you think I'm attractive? Yes I do. And boys think it too :-).
      15. If you could change anything about me, would you? You know what that is - the smoking.
      16. What do you wear to sleep? Typically, a t-shirt and pajama pants or t-shirt and shorts. When it's hot, as little as possible.
      17. Would you come over for no reason just to hang out? I like to think that I would.
      18. Would you go on a date with me if I asked you? Hmm, I don't swing that way.
      19. When is the next time we will see each other? Good question. When are you free for lunch?
      20. Will you post this so I can fill it out for you? Ooh, definitely.

      no time to answer the survey at present (happy hour calls!), but from one grammar freak to another: anna is an alumna of barnard, not an alumnus, right? i mean, unless there's something about "her" that i don't know :)

      happy weekend!

      As a former journalist - with an AP style book gathering dust under my desk - I'd say 'alumna' too :)

       
    • At 12/16/2006, Blogger Michael Leggett said…

      I 1st met you in Boston 212 in May. '05, in the East 28th Street Location:

      I knew you as a textbook editor & know you as a creative writer;

      I would LOVE to travel Cross-Country with you;

      But, Civil Servants are not well paid;

      You once called yourself one who cries. I cried horrifically, when family members were near death, a recent Pope(JP II) was dying & when the Mets caused me to lose sleep in Postseason, this year;

      Yes, I'll cover your back when under attack, physical or otherwise;

      You're just FUN to be with;

      I despise DFYankees;

      Many Hugs to You!

      1.Your Full Name: Edward (just because I want to keep my full name un-googleable and you already know it)
      2. Age:27
      3. Single or Taken: Single, but I am now 3 weeks into the beginnings of a relationship. (Right before a major holiday too. Doh!!)
      4. Favorite Movie: None holds this spot alone, but Shawshank, Princess Bride, Trading Places, A Christmas Story, Clue, Monty Python Holy Grail, Shaun of the Dead, Willy Wonka (not Charlie), and a bunch of others are all up there.
      5. Favorite Song: Like A Prayer Madonna (I can't explain it)
      6. Favorite Band/Artist: None really
      7. Dirty or Clean: Clean but messy (Dirty to me is nasty ass stuff like people that leave food out, garbage everywhere, etc... I just have clothes and papers strewn around the place, but it cleans up really quickly if need be)
      8. Tattoos and/or Piercings:
      Neither

      HERE COMES THE FUN
      1. Do we know each other outside of the blogosphere? Yes

      2. Whats your philosophy on life? Remember, No one gets out of Life alive. Plus only worry about the stuff you can control, and even then it's rarely that big of a deal.

      3. Would you have my back in a fight? Sure, but I doubt you would need me. You've hit me enough to know you'd do pretty well by yourself.

      4. Whats one thing you always wanted to tell me? You're cuter and a better person than you give yourself credit for.

      5. What is your favorite memory of us? Memorial Day Weekend. Fleet Week. Commander Biz. The ball game. Private tours of Navy ships. Good times.

      6. Would you give me a kidney? If you need it, but I'm not just giving it to you for shits and giggles.

      7. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: I couldn't think of anything good, but then again you might think this is good or bad depending on your outlook. I used to believe in a lot of the persecuted young white male bullshit ala macd.

      oh... I'm a chemical engineer by degree, but I really don't care for math or chemistry I just happen to be good at it.

      8. Have you ever had a fantasy about me? Nope. Sorry, but if you really want, I can change that.

      9. Do you have a picture of the two of us? Nope

      10. How did we meet? Redsoxnation.net

      11. Have you ever been to my house? Never in your apartment, but I once drove through every borough (except Staten Island) driving you home from Mass one time, and I got to see the outside of your old one at like 3 in the morning.

      12. Do you think I'm a good person? Si

      13. Would you drive across country with me? Can't see why not.

      14. Do you think I'm attractive? See 4

      15. If you could change anything about me, would you? I would make it so if you really wanted to you could quit smoking

      16. What do you wear to sleep? Boxer briefs.

      17. Would you come over for no reason just to hang out? Yep. Just give me a call

      18. Would you go on a date with me if i asked you? I think I would, but part of me also feels like we don't have that relationship chemistry. Yet you never know. I'd be more than willing to be proven wrong though.

      19. When is the next time we will see each other? No idea, but it needs to be soon. At the latest sometime early next baseball season, but I'll be a little mad if it takes that long.

      20. Will you post this so I can fill it out for you? Nowhere to post it, but you can always email me the answers.

      Whoops. That should read I'll have been in the relationship for three weeks by the time Christmas rolls around.

      It happens. It just adds a certain degree of difficulty to the early part of the relationship though.
