Another Little Questionaire Thingy

name:Greek word for "gift of God." (Shut-up! I didn't say I am a "gift" from God. It's just happens to be my name, okay?)
age: Thirty...something
where are you from: east of the midwest or, "the mideast" as I like to say (USA)
reason for LJ username: futile attempt to overcome my fatalism
interesting fact about you: I once made out with the guy who played "Jack" in "The Lord of the Flies." He kind-of freaked me out though so I wiggled away from him.
weird fact about you: If I were a guy, I'd like to have a beard because I think beards are interesting. Um, that was an embarrassing admission. Forget I said that. Let me think of another answer...er, sometimes, at night, when I'm falling asleep, I like to imagine that I'm snuggling with a fluffy, purring cat because my cats are assholes who refuse to snuggle. Oh, but when they're old and decrepit they'll want me for my body heat, so I got that going for me....
quote:"Everybody likes to complain about the weather, but nobody ever does anything about it." -Mark Twain
give me a brief summary of what's going on in your life right now:I'd love to gripe about how lonely and agonizing my life is right now but I'm afraid God will be like, "Oh, you think your life sucks, huh!?! Well take that!" *smites me with [insert horrible tragedy or illness]*. So, really, my life is just dandy!

a movie:13 Conversations About One Thing
a book:Panther in the Sky by James Alexander Thom (historical fiction about the Shawnee Indians)
a musical artist, song, or album:Zedashe -"Where Mountains Meet Heaven" (Ancient Georgian Chant and Folk Music)
a LJ user:sharkrepellant
something to do in the next two months:Make a piece of art out of trash or scraps of paper

Greek for "gift of god"? Dorothy? Dorinda? Dasha? All those pop up on a google search.

I'm a guy and I have a beard. It's pretty scraggly though. I have too much native american blood in me to grow a big beard. I mainly grew it to sort of cover up my weak chin. I dunno how well it works.

My previous dog slept in my bed with me but the one I have now doesn't. I wish he would. Especially in the winter.

Hey, you're supposed to copy this and post your answers.

About my name, close but no dice.

Don't EVER call me Dorothy.

Dorothea? Dotty?

I'll copy and post it here then.

name Who or What am I? Does My name determine my character? Not according to the last link :P

age Born Sept 25 1965

where are you from I was born in Sinsheim, Germany but I was an army brat and spent most of my early years moving a lot. In 78 my dad retired from the army and I ended up in Warsaw Indiana until the early 80s when I came to California.

reason for LJ username Every name I tried was taken so I pulled down my Encyclopedia Cthulhiana and paged through it till I found a name I figured would be available.

interesting fact about you: Well, what I think is interesting isn't necessarily what anybody else finds interesting. I never played Jack in the Lord of the Flies. Or made out with a guy who did. I had a cat that had 6 toes on both his front paws, but that is more an interesting fact about the cat, not me. Hmmm. My fingers are sort of double jointed so I can bend my fingers at the first joint which it seems most people can not do and apparently it freaks out some people that I can. Except for my left pinky which is a slacker and can't make the bend.

weird fact about you: Maybe my interesting fact was a weird fact. I dunno. I can't think of anything right now. That I'd want to post here, anyway.

give me a brief summary of what's going on in your life right now I'm bored and restless and wondering wtf the point is. I didn't say "I wanna be a drone" when I was a little kid but here I am. And if God wants to get all huffy about me saying that then I direct him to the wisdom of Cool Hand Luke:

[Discussing God and the rain]
Luke: Let him go. Bam, Bam.
Dragline: Knock it off, Luke. You can't talk about Him that way.
Luke: Are you still believin' in that big bearded Boss up there? You think he's watchin' us?
Dragline: Get in here. Ain't ya scared? Ain't ya scared of dyin'?
Luke: Dyin'? Boy, he can have this little life any time he wants to. Do ya hear that? Are ya hearin' it? Come on. You're welcome to it, ol' timer. Let me know you're up there. Come on. Love me, hate me, kill me, anything. Just let me know it.
[He looks around]
Luke: I'm just standin' in the rain talkin' to myself.

a movie Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai
a book The Essential Calvin & Hobbes It'll have to do until they compile the whole strip into one big leather bound collection, which I will buy.
a musical artist, song, or album:Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: No More Shall We Part I love this cd.
a LJ user: I don't really know that many LJ users. They are all pretty cool in their own way. My buddy lurkingowl is a very smart guy though. Probably the smartest person I personally know.
something to do in the next two months: HellifIknow. I have to be at work in about a half hour, I should take care of that first.

Uh, "Dotty?" No.


Yeah, I guess you found me out.

At last, a name for you. Now dietcokehed and I can stop trying to pronounce your unpronouncable username.

Are any of those pictures you?

You say you've never made out with the guy who played "Jack" in Lord of the Flies, but I heard otherwise....:P

Sorry you had to live in Warsaw, IN

Love the Silent Bob quote. Don't know who Cool Hand Luke is.

I don't think I've ever listened to any Nick Cave, but it seems a lot of people I know are into to him so I'll have to check it out, see what I'm missing.
Aug. 11th, 2004 03:41 pm (UTC)
None of those pictures is of me.
As far as Jack and I...somebody is lieing.
I started not minding Warsaw so much right about the time we moved away.
Cool Hand Luke is a movie. One of my favorite movies.

I am so tempted, everyday, to call in sick when I am home for my lunch break.
Aug. 11th, 2004 04:08 pm (UTC)
Yeah, me too, that's why I try to avoid going home for lunch breaks.
Aug. 12th, 2004 04:41 am (UTC)
Just out of curiosity, what other names did you try?
Aug. 12th, 2004 08:29 am (UTC)
I really don't remember.
Aug. 11th, 2004 10:14 am (UTC)
I like the bit about being afraid that God will show you what trouble is really like...I'm always afraid of that...I'm always careful of saying "this shit couldn't get any worse"...cause then I end up working 12 hour days 5 days a week :(
Aug. 11th, 2004 12:49 pm (UTC)
Yep. That's what I'm talking about.
Aug. 11th, 2004 12:59 pm (UTC)
Personally, I think we should all get a "God, if you really love me you'll do this..." card. One a year would be nice.
Aug. 11th, 2004 06:31 pm (UTC)
I am TOTALLY aware of saying shit like that. My life sucks, but I KNOW it could suck more, and probably would start being so if I don't lay off this pity me joyride I'm on...

Besides, doesn't everyone's life suck? Isn't that why we're all here? To have a shitty life and learn from it, then either come back to finish learnin' or be done and peacful and free...ahh

You really should switch to Diet Pepsi. No, never mind, then there will be less for me.

I was a vegetarian for about half a year. I am thinking of going back to being one again. I quit cause the doctors said I needed to eat, eat, eat to fuel my body during the chemo and radiation. Got me hooked again and now I need to unhook.

Famous musicians? Like who? Have you partied with Eddie Spaghetti? Been listening to the Supersuckers at work lately. Those guys rawk.

You don't need to be intelligent to have quotes, you just need Google. Now that Ronald Reagan has died I have, offically, the worst memory in the state of California.

Taking care of twins and working. Is that it? What do you do with all your spare time? (that's a joke, in case it wasn't obvious)

The Goonies rock. But not like The Supersuckers.

Wait a minute, stray rats? Wtf does that mean? That's almost like saying you have stray cockroaches. "They aren't pests, they are pets" I used to work for Terminix as a pest control guy. Oroville was my route. I have issues with roaches. I really really really hate them. I don't much care for Oroville anymore either.

Ok, here's a quote from when I was in my hairband rocker days:
"It's not the cough that carries you off. It's the coffin they carry you off in." - Steven Tyler
:) I like him, he's funny. Not so much for the music though.

And yes, stray rats, the domestic kind. The first was left behind in an apartment. There was a mom and two babies. The guy who moved came back and took the mom (and stole my fucking cage in the process) but left the babies. I caught one but the other moved away. Then about a year later I was at McDonald's, which is RARE, and when we were leaving I saw a cage in the parking lot, and something was moving in it, so I went to investigate. Sure enough, there was a large domestic rat in it. So we took him home and named him French Fry. Some people are just sick, to leave a rat like that, in a cage, in the sun. Bastards. I think there was a reason we went to Mc'D's that day...
I had to get him fixed so he could move in with my girly rat, and now they live happily ever after in a large rat condo :) But I'm not allowed anymore :(
